June 25

Mercury square Neptune

You may feel like the mythical Tantalus nowadays. The gods punished him by placing him in a pool of water with branches laden with fruit hanging overhead. When he bent over to drink, the water mysteriously sank lower and when he reached up to eat, the branches recoiled. You may also be feeling like your goals are tantalizingly close but remain just beyond your grasp. Mercury is squaring Neptune, the planet of illusion, right now so you may not be the best judge of matters. You will want to wait for the effects to clear on June 30. This is when you’ll discover that you’re a lot closer than you think. Signs most affected: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Signs most affected: Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, and Capricorn
