Small jobs and duties are in stronger focus. You may be dissecting problems, working on solving tricky matters, and finding solutions to practical problems. It’s a great time to tidy up your life in small but impactful ways, but it’s crucial to avoid overthinking and worrying, which can happen a little too easily under duress.

Those areas of life associated with the fifth house can be more interesting, thought-worthy, or relevant to you now, including romance, children, and hobbies or creative pursuits. You may get the chance to shine or stand out from the crowd on a mental level, or this can be a time of clearer expression of your feelings, ideas, and personality. If you’ve had trouble verbalizing your affections, this is a time to get things out. Today, much of the day is very much about your needs, feelings, and desires. You’re looking ahead with more confidence and optimism.
PiscesMercury has just begun its transit of your home and family sector, dear Pisces.

Until July 11th, you have a lot to learn at home and through contact with loved ones, but you may not be as forthcoming with the outside world. This is a fine time for thinking about long-term security or endeavors that have long-lasting potential. Today, much is going on behind the scenes. The Moon spends most of the day in your privacy sector before emerging in your sign, and you’re likely to be preparing, building inner strength, and reflecting or enjoying more downtime.
