The Stars This Week: July 8-14, 2013
Mixed Signals!

During the week ahead, July 8's new Moon in Cancer tells you it's time for a fresh start. But Mercury remains retrograde, urging you to loop back to old contacts once it conjuncts the Sun on July 9. Later, it's time to invest in your emotional well-being as action planet Mars leaves talkative Gemini on July 13 to enter security-focused Cancer.

July 8: New Moon in Cancer
With so many planets in Water signs during this new Moon, you're extra-sensitive and need to use logic and facts to help you make decisions. It doesn't help that Mercury is still retrograde, which causes more than a few misunderstandings! Any new Moon in Cancer is bound to highlight your home, family, and anything you do to make your life more secure and comfortable, so tune into your feelings and invest in activities that nurture you. Set quiet time aside and write in your journal about what you think will contribute to your emotional well-being. As the Moon increases in light in its lead-up to becoming full in Aquarius on July 22, direct your energy into areas of your life you'd like to grow or make stronger.

July 9: Mercury conjuncts the Sun
As retrograde Mercury joins the Cancer Sun, you return to conversations and ideas for a second look -- and hopefully receive helpful information in return! Have you reviewed your plans since Mercury turned retrograde on June 26? It's now time to weigh any advantages and disadvantages that have arisen. Even though you'll continue to tweak your ideas until Mercury turns direct on July 20, this conjunction marks an important turning point in their development. Seek counsel, reflect, and mull things over so you're ready to move forward later this month.

July 13: Mars enters Cancer
Mars is both an activator and a warrior, and this feisty planet is your best friend when you need the energy to get something done. However, it can also get you into trouble when you overreact! As Mars enters sensitive Cancer, don't get carried away by feeling so strongly about something that you tread on people's feelings; also, avoid acting impulsively when exercising a little patience is clearly the smarter option. Pay close attention to your gut feelings, instincts, and hunches as you move forward with plans later this month. Mars will remain in Cancer until August 27.
