Well, here comes Mercury retrograde — ’til August 8th. Keep your sense of humor. The next Cazimi New Moon rises just before midnight next Wednesday, the 18th. That’s when you/we should gather all our magique in a basket and make a wish. See you in dreams…


d CANCER (6.22-7.22)  The Moon is twice as important ’til the New Moon on the Cancer/Leo cusp, late on July 18th. This should culminate a very magical month for you and all you cherish. Spread the love while la Luna resides in Taurus, ’til you wake up on Saturday. Take a short trip through the past, communicate before it gets too late and you could get “lucky” after 8:00. Too bad Mercury “retrogrates” in your money House at 7:00. Oh well, what the hell? Try it anyway. You’ll have 3 weeks to pay.

e LEO (7.23-8.22)  Okay. Get ready. Friday the 13th is just the beginning. Expect 3 weeks in hell — of your own making. If you can’t count on certain people, here’s where they’ll prove it. Sit back and learn. Watch/listen to their body language — not just their words. Test them as you will be tested. Fasting clears the palate.

f VIRGO (8.23-9.22)  Please read Leo. Your relationships with bosses, parents and teachers are going to reemerge, starting in/through your subconscious. As a Virgo, of course, we can expect you to ascertain what’s wrong first. No problem. Just remember to balance out your negatives with the positives. Every change has also its positive effect(s).

g LIBRA (9.23-10.22)  Another 2 weeks to experience the wild and crazy ways of composing bliss (and yes, that can be taken 2 ways)! The combo (Venus and Jupiter) started making music in mid-March. Then you went on to play, in your own merry, fairy way. Then you went nuts around mid-May, and it took ’til the 1st Full Moon after June (July 3rd) for you to resume. How does the MOJO know? Magique!

h SCORPIO (10.23-11.22)  Isn’t it the most fun in the world being a Scorpio? (Don’t tell no one.) AUM… Silence is my GOD. My prayers are always answered. Thank you all for this moment amidst the silence of all things. The 1 becomes 2, and the 2 becomes 3; e.g., breathe in, breathe out, enjoy life. Breathe in, breathe out, enjoy life. Breathe in, breathe out, enjoy life. And then the 3 begets all things… AUM…

i SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.21)  Please read Libra. I got some good news and some bad news. The Moon’s conjunct your ruler Jupiter after sunset on Saturday night (good chance to score!), but Mercury moves retrograde about an hour before that. (Isn’t it always sweeter when it’s forbidden?) Give it a shot. You were born lucky. Just remember not to count on it; that’s when luck disappears.

j CAPRICORN (12.22-1.20)  Time to look at yourself privately from across the pond, and then beyond. The “blues” is lookin’ for youse on Saturday night, right around midnight. You can either be dancing with the Devil’s delight or turn it in early for a Saturday night. See ya at the Crossroads…Robert. The blues is on the loose… Long live da blues…

k AQUARIUS (1.21-2.19)  Hide. On Friday the 13th your esoteric ruler, the planet Uranus, moves retrograde for 5 long, arduous months, redoing everything you’ve accomplished so far in 2012. Your other ruler, Saturn, is finishing up its onerous transit through loving Libra, allowing you to see and be the beauty of music and harmony. Take your pick, Slick. Who would you rather be? -Michael P.

l PISCES (2.20-3.20)  Jupiterians should be lost in a choice between 2 loves for 2 weeks. Neptunians should just be lost. Where would/should we start? You wouldn’t believe me, anyway. Step beneath the illusion while remaining superhumanly humble, and learn to float on/within an/the ocean of devotion.

a ARIES (3.21-4.20)  On Friday the 13th, the planet Uranus moves retrograde at 8° Aries, especially affecting those born around March 1st. And what’s worse; it’s for the next 5 months. It’s forcing/coercing you to realign yourself within your “tribe,” in order to accomplish what you must. Swallow your pride, ask forgiveness if you must (even though we know that it’s them that should seek forgiveness), and then get back to work ’til Christmas!

b TAURUS (4.21-5.20)  Venus is transiting your theoretical 2nd House of finance hand-in-hand with Jupiter, the planet of luck and beneficence, for 2 more weeks. (Luck with love among$t partner$hip$?) Your lucky number is 2. Mercury’s retrograde in your theoretical 4th House of Leo, presenting confusion regarding your king-/queendom, and/or your castle. Clean up the mess and then focus on relationships.

c GEMINI (5.21-6.21)  Well, how are your showbiz, entertainment, lead singer, boss(?), parent, alpha male/female tendencies/possibilities? We’ll see during these next 3 weeks, as your ruler Mercury travels through Leo in an apparent reverse — a blessing or a curse? Time for your vacation. Everyone else is — or will be. This be the truth, from Michael P. There are no mistakes; just seems like it during Mercury retrograde.
