Now is the time to listen to your intuition to stop yourself from making the wrong decision.

With every ambition and dreams, there will be consequences to follow.
 
Unlike last week, we are no longer accompanied with the INTENSE T-Square (remember this?). Mercury is no longer in opposite of Saturn retrograde, Neptune is no longer in square with Mercury, but the Square aspect between Neptune retrograde and Saturn retrograde will intensify starting Monday, 27th of July.
 
That said, we haven’t really finished learning what the Universe is trying to tell us last week.
 
Believe it or not, but the slow progress of your career or ambition, wouldn’t really help with your personal life. Saturn is in retrograde under the fast house Sagittarius; the conqueror, the chariot, the pursuit of higher truth. This balance check in your ambitious life would only cost you the time that was supposed to be used for healing and retrospection (because, stress, duh!).
 
But the grand event that I’m looking forward to is a rare Kite aspect, which is formed of a grand trine and two connecting sextiles on Thursday, June 30th. Seriously, it is shaped like a kite.
 


The three trines are Moon in Taurus, Pluto retrograde in Capricorn and Jupiter in Virgo, along with two sextiles between Moon x Venus and Venus x Jupiter (oh my god this sounds really complicated, but bear with me please). The kite’s center is Pluto, the ruler of death and destruction, with Venus, the ruler of love, as its opposite.
 
 With a grand trine formed between Pluto, the Moon (emotion), and Jupiter (the planet of luck), on Thursday we would be given a chance to listen to our intuition a lot clearer than before, to protect ourselves from making the wrong decision in our life. Particularly before shit hits the fan.
 
The connection between the grand trine and the opposite planet gives you a hint on the things that you need to pay attention to, which is translated as the thing that would either make it or break it. Since Venus is stationed as the opposite of the grand trine, it’s time to think about your definition of love or money. Don’t forget that the Sun is still in conjunction with Venus, along with Mercury that has just entered Cancer to sit with both Sun and Venus. This means, logic and ego would come into play in defying your intuition.
 
Some questions you need to remember are: Are you sure you want to stay with your toxic loved one after receiving big red “NO" signs from the Universe? Are you sure he’s the one? I know things sound good on the outside (big paycheck, amazing future boyfriend credentials, maybe a beach bod?), but won’t you listen to what the nudges in your heart have to say?
 
These questions, would also apply for money as Venus rules your personal finance. So trust what you hear inside your heart to avoid taking the wrong financial opportunity. It’s easy for Venus to tempt us since it rules two of the most important aspects in our lives, but you wouldn’t think that everything is actually nice under that pretty little layer right?
 
My advice, if things seem too good to be true in life, it’s probably not. *winks*
 
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Queen of Wands
 
Be brave, Cancer. I know the pressure is high from everyone around you, but you shouldn’t give up yet! Not until you bust your ass off and give them the fiercest death stare. Everything happens for a reason, remember? Maybe it’s time for you to stand up to this nonsense and tell them how unoriginal they are. You are your own person, you can do as you please, and be who you really want to be. No one can change that nor force you to be something you’re not. Are you ready to say no?
 
You should listen to:
Goddess - Banks
 
You should wear:
Nothing gives you the satisfaction of taking back your life other than wearing what you actually want to wear. I’m not going to tell you what to wear today because you’re the only one who knows how to dress to empower, Cancer. Now, kill them with your looks before they have anything to say about how you dress.
 
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Ten of Wands (oppression)
 
The more they pressure you the stronger you’ll be. You’re in it to win it, Leo! Walk with pride, don’t let anyone touch you, and you’ll be invisible. Not literally, but it’s going to be a smooth ride for you. Understand when to use your charm to smoothen things out, as not everyone is fond of your intimidating vibe. But hey, keep your enemies closer, remember?
 
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Five of Wands (Strife)
 
Whenever you discuss about your goals with others, see if you can take a look at your problem through their perspective. Main point, not everyone would agree with you or come across as perfectionist as you to actually come up with a legit suggestion. So try not to get frustrated, Virgo! Ignore what they have to say, just get yourself to focus on the end goal.
 
Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Six of Disks (Success)
 
The only person that you need to shut off right now is yourself. Now is not the time to get distracted by that yapping voice in your head. Eyes on the prize, remember what you’re here for, and shut all the distractions. Keep your head quiet so you would have all the time in the world to focus on the most important thing for you. Ready, get set…. go!
 
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Ace of Cups
 
Life is like a strange big bad web, where it’s easy to get caught and eaten if you’re not careful enough. This week, don’t fall for sweet promises or things that sounds to good to be true. There’s a huge chance they will bail out on you and leave you without any assurance that things are going to be fine from this moment onwards. Just be careful, okay?
 
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Two of Swords (Peace)
 
If you’re terrified of getting cheated, there’s no shame in asking others for help, you know. Everything goes back to you. If you really want it, then you have to put an extra effort to make it come true. Just like how you should study for an exam, even though you hate the subject so much. You just have to go through with it, you know what I’m saying?
 
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Knight of Wands
 
Having a strong ego is great to ensure your survival ability. As long as it’s not too overwhelming and you know how and when to unleash it. Use it whenever you have a big decision to make. You don’t need ego to prove you’re better than others, because, despite the temptation, that’s not the reason why ego exists in the first place. 
 
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Six of Cups (Pleasure)
 
It’s okay to stop running if you’re tired. You’re just a human, who has a limit too, just like everyone else. You just have to pop the champagne on a scorching hot Sunday, keep your skimpy bikini on, and take a break for a day or two. Turn off your phone, worry less about your work and responsibilities, because it's summer time, baby!
 
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
The Fool
 
Have you ever thought about thinking once instead of thinking twice? Sometimes when you think twice about doing something you’ll end up not doing it. Just like when you think about going to the gym tomorrow, but you end up binge-watching for. Maybe this time you just have to do it. No thinking, no what-ifs, just do it.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Princess of Wands
 
Don’t underestimate the power of listening, Aries! Yes I know, sometimes they sound as if they know nothing about what you know, but it’s never a harm to learn from someone who you’d think to be a lesser grade of you. Life is rich. Every opportunity you see, including listening to a grapevine gossip, is a chance to understand the things you need to improve.
 
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Five of Swords (Defeat)
 
No bad news are inherently bad, trust me. Despite feeling like the world is going to crash and burn in front of you, there’s actually a silver lining to be cheerful about. At least right now you don’t have to waste your time thinking about the worst possibility, right? Just try to get up as quick as you can before life sends another karma reminder to your door.
 
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Eight of Disks (Prudence)
 
Try to lay low for a bit, Gemini. Use this down time to analyze your situation and see if you can get out of the mess as soon as you expected. If you’re tempted to voice your heart out, don’t. Maybe wait until everything simmers down? Don’t worry, this period won’t last long until you know where and when to use your voice.
