July 19: Saturn trines Neptune
This aspect is an important part of July 17's grand trine energy, when both Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces trined Jupiter in Cancer. Practical Saturn lends support now to your creativity and imagination, so use this time to showcase your talents and reach out to anyone in a position of authority who may be willing to help you.

July 20: Mercury turns direct
The powerful little communication planet Mercury turned retrograde in Cancer on June 26. During these last three-and-a-half weeks, you may have found yourself feeling unusually sensitive. Conversations about family, home, security concerns, and your emotional well-being have dominated this retrograde period, so you're probably more than ready to move on to other topics! But since Mercury will continue to travel through Cancer until August 8, pace yourself, for your strongest feelings and conversations continue to revolve around emotional subjects until early next month. Take advantage of every bit of this time to straighten out misunderstandings and process your feelings.
