Yesterday Mars came out of its retrograde phase and went direct again! With this energy, you’ll feel more dramatic and creative, also self-confident and assertive. You have energy, courage and honesty.

Come forward and shine!
Optimistically live in the moment and create your future!
Enjoy the pleasures of life!
Most of all: be yourself! You have absolutely nothing to hide, and are wonderful just the way you are, not the way other people think you should be!

Anyhow, during this time – especially until the end of July, while Mars transits in Scorpio – be wary of not beeing too arrogant, egotistical, or stubborn. While you should not let others dictate how you live, listening to even opposite opinions can sometimes be revealing and bring out new light on an old subject. You never know.
Just don’t try to jump in and quickly ‘fix’ the other person who might not be getting the point you are at. They might interpret it as an attack. Just accept people are at different stages in life and see things differently, and that is OK. Largely just listen. You don’t have to act on anything you hear or see. Make your point firm and clear, but maintain calm. Just don’t let others walk over you, but you also keep an eye whether you are doing the same…
Chances are that many of the ideas you oppose so fiercely are options you previously evaluated and dismissed yourself, and you’d hate to admit it. Even in that case, don’t hate yourself for having previously thought the same, and then understood – because that is exactly the way we really learn – by direct experience – and you can’t accelerate that.

Mercury also moved into in Cancer yesterday (Mercury always ‘follows’ the Sun, which was already in Cancer). Due to Mercury’s influence on communication and Cancer sweetness, during this transit your thoughts can turn inwards and reach the deepest levels of your soul. If you use this energy the right way (keeping thoughts positive and not dwelling into negative emotions is the necessary precondition here!), Mercury in Cancer will help you have compassion for yourself and for others, and might color your every day interactions with a poetic flavor.

Move forward into the Light, share your unique gifts with the world with your own distinct mojo, but remember to remain humble and compassionate!

“The seed cannot know what is going to happen, the seed has never known the flower. And the seed cannot even believe that he has the potentiality to become a beautiful flower. Long is the journey, and it is always safer not to go on that journey because unknown is the path, nothing is guaranteed. Nothing can be guaranteed. Thousand and one are the hazards of the journey, many are the pitfalls – and the seed is secure, hidden inside a hard core. But the seed tries, it makes an effort; it drops the hard shell which is its security, it starts moving. Immediately the fight starts: the struggle with the soil, with the stones, with the rocks. And the seed was very hard and the sprout will be very, very soft and dangers will be many. There was no danger for the seed, the seed could have survived for millennia, but for the sprout many are the dangers. But the sprout starts towards the unknown, towards the sun, towards the source of light, not knowing where, not knowing why. Great is the cross to be carried, but a dream possesses the seed and the seed moves. The same is the path for man. It is arduous. Much courage will be needed.” – Osho
