Household issues require attention. Stick close to home for the next two days. Collaborate for shared gain this month. Family assets are on the rise.
Choose what's best for family. Stay out of someone else's argument. If annoyed, take a walk outside. Promote the most sensible, practical solution.
Clouds have a silver lining. Make professional plans with Pluto retrograde for five months. Advancement on long-term goals seems slowed or suspended. Consider hidden possibilities.
Your wishes seem easier to achieve with Mercury direct today after three retrograde weeks. Barriers dissolve. Mechanical equipment, communications and transportation flow more smoothly. Re-establish connections. Step into new levels of power and confidence with this Aries New Moon. You can make things happen. Take leadership for your passions, values and commitments. Raise the level of integrity for increased workability and ease. Saturn stations retrograde (until 7/10/18), as it does for approximately 4-1/2 months (or approximately 38% of) every year. Shifting perspectives can cause disorientation, as with any retrograde, whether turning direct or retrograde. Just as the backward motion of a retrograde planet is apparent rather than actual, retrograde effects are about the way we see things. Over the upcoming week, responsibilities can weigh heavily. Disconnect from a sense of purpose can lead to a temporary drop in motivation. You may worry about pending decisions or feel less energetic. Review and reassess. Reconnect with the purpose of structures, limits, and duties. Slow down. Avoid stressful expansion or additions to existing responsibilities and projects. Reduce, revise and simplify. Delays provide the chance to correct errors and refine. Look back on ground covered. Reconsider rules, structures, foundations, and traditions. Avoid taking on new major projects. Editing current projects or returning to old projects can be very successful. Review and revise career goals. Imagine a delightful future, and consider what might be included in your dream job. Create professional plans and visions over the next five months with Pluto retrograde. A turning point arises with this Scorpio Full Moon. A barrier becomes apparent. Face a new direction. Choose a new path and share acknowledgments, gratitude and appreciation while inventing what's next.

The smallest planet in the Solar System, Mercury's closest to the Sun and completes an orbit every 88 days.
Mercury's retrograde lasts about three weeks, and occurs three times a year. Mercury's the planet that rules over communication, intellect, education, commerce and transportation. Retrograde effects include slowing, blocking, jamming and breakdowns. Listening and reviewing gets more important, as the message can become garbled, lost or delayed.
Mercury's the ruling planet for both Gemini and Virgo, so people born under these signs can be more affected by Mercury Retrograde.

Mars is the action planet, named for the warrior god in Roman mythology. It takes the fourth planet about 687 Earth days to orbit the Sun.
When Mars goes retrograde, which it does every 2 and a half years (usually for two months), thought takes precedence over overt actions, and pressure can become internalized. Stress can lead to health problems, and impulsiveness can lead to arguments and accidents. Release emotion with exercise. It's a good time to take it slower, review the plans, and re-define goals and methods. Avoid risky business, for love or money. New endeavors can stall or may not go as intended, so it's better to choose a launch date after Mars goes direct.
Mars retrograde affects each person individually according to their natal chart, but in general, Mars rules Aries and Scorpio, so these signs are especially affected.
