The Stars This Week: July 23-29, 2012
Communicate!

This week, take your time before you act on anything, as the week begins with a confusing Sun-quincunx-Neptune aspect on July 24. Then, Mercury sextiles expansive Jupiter on July 24 and trines exciting Uranus on July 25, when you definitely won't be at a loss for words or ideas! Toward the end of the week, on July 28, a conjunction of the Leo Sun with retrograde Mercury returns you to past conversations, which will hopefully help straighten out any recent misunderstandings.

July 24: The Sun quincunxes Neptune
With this bewildering aspect, you may feel as if you've driven into a fog bank! The Sun in Leo is baffled by the nebulous, diffusive energy of Neptune, but there is a beneficial way to work with this aspect. While it's important to be confident and have self-respect, Neptune's message is all about being inclusive of others. If you're extra-mindful of others' needs and desires, you'll not only strengthen your own confidence while solidifying your position, but you'll deepen your spirituality in the process!

July 24: Mercury sextiles Jupiter
July 25: Mercury trines Uranus
With Mercury currently retrograde, this communicative planet returns to Jupiter and Uranus, giving you the opportunity to return to earlier ideas and conversations. The fact that you have plenty of cheerleaders for your ideas makes this an unusually optimistic time, as these two positive aspects bring many messages and much news. With so many stimulating conversations and breakthrough ideas, your mind is supercharged -- make sure you do something with all that information!

July 28: The Sun conjuncts Mercury
Do others respect you? Do you respect yourself? How do you wish to be treated? These are some of the questions to ask as Mercury and the Sun form a conjunction in proud, confident Leo. Revisit some of your previous conversations. How did they go? This is an excellent time to make amends if past behavior hasn't highlighted your best self; it's also a good opportunity to seek advice from someone you trust. Just keep in mind that, while this is a fruitful time to reflect and ponder, it's not necessarily the best time to act. Once Mercury turns direct on August 7, you'll be able to get your ideas out into the world and feel confident about resolving issues you may have had with others.
