Hello, beautiful soul—your weekly horoscope for June 15-21 2020 is here. This week, Mercury turns retrograde in the sign of Cancer, and remains so until July 12. During this time, we can expect disruptions around communication, travel and the pace at which negotiations proceed.
On Thursday, red-hot Mars (planet of aggression) forges a positive angle with powerful Pluto(planet of transformation), which can intensify desire. If there’s something you want, you’ll put all your energy into getting it. On Saturday, feisty Mars angles toward expansive Jupiter (planet of abundance), bringing a surge of optimism into the picture and inspiring you to step out of your comfort zone in order to explore new opportunities.
On that same day, the sun (planet of self) moves into Cancer for a four-week stay, which can put family life at the top of the list of priorities. Your focus may be on the safety and security of your home and loved ones. Finally, with a solar eclipse in Cancer on Saturday, you may be ready for a positive change that encourages working toward domestic harmony while bringing you closer to loved ones.
Still not totally sure you understand mercury retrograde? Don’t be afraid to read up on it! Knowing what to expect can help you communicate more efficiently and (ultimately) thrive, retrograde or not.
