You can earn money by selling your time, your labor or your ideas. Which of these do you prefer, or in what combination? In any event, remind yourself regularly that you must take the initiative on your own success, and that means daily effort, aspiration and refinement of your approach. There is no one solution — in fact there may be many solutions even to simple equations, situations or problems. Use your full intelligence, and be aware that the chance encounter or mental disruption can lead to the most brilliant approach.

Written in the Planets
Mercury enters its pre-retrograde ‘shadow’ or ‘echo’ phase today; it will station retrograde in Leo on July 7, and stations direct in late Cancer on July 31. This lets you know a couple of things. One is that this would be a good time to tie up loose ends prior to the retrograde proper. The other is that since Mercury will station direct in aspect to Pluto and Eris — just like it is now — you may wish to make note of the key themes most prominent in your awareness currently. You might be revisiting this mental landscape in late July.
Also today Juno enters Leo, moving into a trine with Ceres in Sagittarius. As much as you may desire a partner or prospect to shine on you like the Sun, keep in mind that generosity of spirit nourishes the giver as much as the receiver — so why not offer some to others? No need to get offended if you don’t feel like you’re getting the attention you desire. The Sun will rise on you again soon enough; in the meantime, what you share will likely keep your spirit lit.
Tomorrow the Sun enters Cancer for the solstice. While it travels the last degree of Gemini today, things could feel a little edgy, or mentally agitated. Anytime you feel about to race ahead of yourself, consider slowing back down and re-focusing on what’s actually at hand. All seasons turn in their own time, and that time is imminent.
