Astrology of Friday, July 19
TGIF it is Friday, right? Retrograde Mercury gets a bad rap - it is in retrograde, or backward, motion now - and sometimes it is more difficult than others. But today, retrograde Mercury has slipped into Cancer. In Cancer, there is highly sensitive, intuitive, reflective terrain to cover, and that works well with the best of Mercury retrograde: review, revise and reflect. Cancer can and may come up with a different outlook. Those born or with planets early in Cancer, Libra, Capricorn and Aries or late in the signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces may be more personally affected than some others.
For political minds: Today the Moon is in the sign of the people of the United States, and they demand an adjustment by the Executive Branch. The people are irritated, frustrated. You may feel that personally if you were born or have planets in late degrees of the stubborn, but persistent signs of Aquarius, Taurus, Leo or Scorpio.
