Do you long for increased motivation, more creativity, and the ability to break any barriers that may have been holding you back? Then the stars have you covered with three transformational transits this week!
On July 5th, two planets are making moves as assertive Mars enters Earthy Taurus and intellectual Mercury moves into intuitive, emotional Cancer. Mars is the planet of willpower and drive, and when it’s in grounded, sensible Taurus, you feel driven to go after your goals at a steady yet directed pace.
Mercury, on the other hand, is the planet of the mind and information, and when it’s in the sensitive and creative sign of Cancer, you can expect your imagination and your intuition to flow like water.
Yet, this can bring moodiness or tension to your interactions with others—it’s crucial that you acknowledge and tend to your emotions right now.
Finally, on July 6th, the First Quarter Moon graces us with its active presence—this time in the balanced sign of Libra. This lunar transit encourages you to take action towards your goals and tear down any obstacles in your path.
If there are any situations, relationships, or habits that are toxic or are no longer serving you, now is the time to release them and make way for progress!
