Mercury just went into a retrograde period yesterday and that means miscommunications and misunderstandings are front and center. Thankfully, the relationship drama has dipped into a lull as the focus becomes your creative genius for the next seven days. Even if creativity isn’t your thing, you’ll suddenly feel like Picasso this week.

Creative expression comes in many forms. It doesn’t mean you’ll have to whip up a literary masterpiece or sculpt a work of art from stone, but do take advantage of the visionary energy in the air to bring your own vision to fruition.

The retrograde periods are often a time to re-evaluate and re-examine where you stand in many areas of your life (including relationships), but this week’s start to the Mercury in retrograde has you introverted and highlighting the connections within yourself. Who are you? Where do you want to go? What do you want to do? How are you going to get there or achieve it? Those are the burning questions this week. You’ll soon discover you had the answers within you all along.

Imaginative and creativity go hand in hand and that’s just the overtone of Sunday’s essence with the three, the number of imagination and inspiration. Your inner cheerleader is pumping up your spirits and giving you the extra boost of “rah-rah” you need to get a jump start on your ideas today. The idea pot is bubbling over and your only dilemma today is to figure out which master plans to implement first. No time is wasted this week because the first day of the week is your jumping off point. This will be your most social day of the week so do connect with your social circle as a sounding board. Two heads are better than one.

Your vision board is full of your manifestation wish list and Monday’s energy is the Master Builder (22-four) to help you bring your dreams to life. You’re putting up the framework of your dreams today. It’s been a long time coming but you’re finally going to catch a glimpse of your visions as reality. Sometimes it takes coming clean with yourself to open the flood gates of creation. You’ll be amazed at how swiftly and efficiently your plans come together under Monday’s 22-four influence. All you need to do is set the pendulum in motion by taking the first step forward. Even if you’re not detail oriented, the smaller points that make all the difference will be front and center for you today.

Two things are on the front burner this June and that’s relationships and career. Today is definitely a career day with lots of five energy swirling in your midst. As the number of freedom of expression, you’ll give wings to your creative powers this Tuesday. You’ll surprise yourself with the amount of headway you’ll make in carving out a new niche for yourself career wise. You knew you needed a change and the energies are in alignment for you to improvise in the moment. Show your boss the new company angle you thought of and you could just find yourself as the one to head up the project. If you’re a solo flier (entrepreneur), this is your chance to tweak your title and focus to be more in alignment with your unique brand. No more cookie cutter roles for you. Be careful that your confidence doesn’t slip into domination mode since six is the number of extremes (strong positive/negative side) while 5 can be controlling in the negative. You want to be in control not controlling, the boss but not bossy.

Fire in the hole. It’s time to get back in the trenches with relationships. Today will be particularly challenging because it’s not only a relationship month with the six but the influence of the 15-six makes it extra volatile. Power struggles galore as the five in the inner or weaker position brings the tendency to be right and have the upper hand. Pick your battles and know when to walk away or you’ll be worse for wear. If any issues have been swept under the rug, now’s the time when they’ll rear their ugly head. You can run but you can’t hide. The silver lining is that the dysfunctional or dead relationships you may have been hanging onto will see some finalization today.

The bomb has been dropped and now it’s time to deal with the aftermath which isn’t altogether pretty. Sometimes, it’s best to rip it off like a band aid and move on.

Don’t look back, keep going. That’s the nature of the 16-seven energy of Thursday. You may be having second thoughts about things you’ve done this week like the grand idea you pitched to your boss or the dramatic way you ended a relationship with a deadbeat friend. Today is a perfect day to turn the page to the next chapter. Don’t linger on the past, turn a new leaf. The energy wants you to step forward, not back. Focus on the tasks ahead of you as you make way for new creation in your life this month. It can be necessary to get rid of the old to make way for new growth and today is that day. Seven energy is all about leaping before thinking (hindsight learning) so don’t put too much thought into your recent decisions. What’s done is done and everything happens for a reason.

Carpe diem. Friday as a two-fold energy of contemplation and manifestation. As the God frequency (17-eight), you are the creator of your universe today. This week’s theme is to make changes without second-guessing or side-stepping in any other direction but what feels right. You aren’t crying over spilled milk. You have a sense of inner self trust today and despite a few moments of regret, you know on a deeper level everything is working out for the highest good for all concerned. Now that you’ve created more space for new opportunities, people, places and things in your life, the river of manifestation and abundance is flowing in bringing some shiny new amazing stuff your way. After all, it is the month of creativity and if you can dream it, you can achieve it.

We’re ending the week on a very high note — the highest change number of nine. Saturday is moving and shaking with changes and it’s an exciting time for you right now. You’ve made some significant process in many areas this week and today you’re going to implement some of the new opportunities that were thrown your way yesterday. Act fast because creative energy is spontaneous and all about divine timing. You’ll feel the urgency with stepping up and out into new territory in a big and 180 degree way. Expect new energy to flow into most areas of your life (career, love, health, finances). It’s time and you’re ready.
