Mercury once again ...
is retrograde, moving "backwards" in relation to Earth's orbit. It's not necessarily a good time for Mercurial pursuits, like travel, writing (that probably includes blogging, too) ... It's retrograde this time in the sign Cancer, so the transit should have greatest impact on folks with Sun or Mercury in Cancer, Capricorn, Libra, or Aries. Just saying. It goes direct again on July 10th. Till then, think twice.
(For an account of previous encounters I've had with Lord Mercury, and a look at astrology in general, see this earlier post.)
(Image of Mercury from the Jet Propulsion Lab site, where it has this caption: "This photomosaic of the planet Mercury was assembled from individual high-resolution images taken by Mariner 10 shortly before closest approach in 1974. The sun is shining from the right, and the terminator is at about 100 degrees west longitude. Crater Kuiper, named after astronomer Gerard P. Kuiper, can be seen just below the center of the planet's illuminated side. The landscape is dominated by large craters and basins with extensive plains between craters.")
