|From Asia & Mideast|
The trine between Mars and Jupiter could be the mitigating factor that turns things in a somewhat favorable direction, as this combination reflects the spirit of enterprise and enthusiastic energy. Again, the fundamentalists might go overboard, but thats the tendency of those who think they know better then everyone else.
About 3 days after the Cancer New Moon, the Sun enters it's home sign of Leo the Lion where it can shine in all it's glory. The energetic shift from yin (Cancer) to yang (Leo), from inwardly emotional (Cancer) to outwardly affectionate (Leo), will be palpable. It's time to play, create, and have fun- so enjoy the Summer.
Mercury retrograde in Leo until Aug. 7/8 is still a factor to consider, but a relatively benign one, given the soft aspects it forms to other planets during it's back-and-forth dance.
