SIDEREAL WESTERN ASTROLOGY
Romance will continue to have some friction until later this week. Then the home fires should start to even out. This is about money, what constitutes routine or normal. With Mars in opposition to this aspect, watch all your actions because they are meaningful. Things can certainly get blown out of proportion, so be mindful of what is say.
I missed it last week, but Neptune went Retrograde last week. It is slow moving so this will last until November 26th. Conscious people have been put through so much, but this retrograde means a second look at what motivates us. I also note Neptune’s Retrograde is after this year’s midterm elections. While I am passionate about consequences, just know that how we think together will be profoundly influenced this cycle. Perhaps it will be another permutation of our deepest insecurities facing the reality that fear was unnecessary. I am speaking of those who grovel at authoritarianism as a security that lets them be at the top of the heap. I hope by the end of this cycle there will be no heap, but a collective working together.
June 26th Mars starts to slow down and go Retrograde. This will be gumming up the works of most processes until August 28th. Interestingly enough it could also put the brakes on actions during this time. What is tricky about this is Mars will remain in aspect to the Dragon’s Tail all this time, before it starts it journey back though the opposition through the Dragon’s Tail until October 2nd, 2018. So as the weather really starts to change so will this aggravating point. This may be known energetically as one of the hottest periods we have experienced in a long time. The Dragon’s Tail simply responds to old habits being more comfortable than moving in a karmically positive direction. Old ways will struggle to remain dominate over the needed fresh start into our next “social experiment”.
Just as a heads up on next week, June 30th will have a very potent T Square with Moon/Mars, North Node/Mercury and Uranus… remember our old friend Uranus the trickster? I suspect some particularly difficult and shocking news will happen that day. Fortunately, there are a number of Trines to ease the pain so that everything does not fall apart. Just know that if you are signing a contract this day, don’t do it. With Mars in Capricorn, I have to wonder about financial markets as well. Don’t rule out cyber-attack.
A Grand Square through the 30th will force examination of where you are right now. Some people will be quite cozy because they have developed or transformed in step with the times. Those who are still stuck in an old paradigm will take a fair amount of heat. These times are pivotal to advancing consciously.
So, after that gloom and doom you may understand why I focus more on daily consciousness creating the future, vs where it could spiral out of control.
Friday, June 22nd, this day will be a mixed bag of things coming together then finding resistance. Midday and later afternoon prove that those who work through the difficulties will meet with success. The important focal point is the Grand Trine in Air bringing clarity and distillation from what is tumbling about. If you are one to find reorganization from chaos, you will benefit. At the end of the day get ready to change gears for the weekend. Moon in Libra.
Saturday, June 23rd, to focus on what is working, there are some powerful shifts in consciousness happening today. They are new ways of looking at a situation. A better view of what we can be proud of, and where that is going. Even if it seems more like shock and awe. The Grand Square is keeping things stationary, so why not work with the unseen, such as a new meditation practice. Moon in Libra.
Sunday, June 24th, finds the Grand Trine in Air breaking up. So, our thinking may not be connecting all the dots. Seek deeper truths or simply find a way to recharge your energy. Working on your meditation practice or just finding some time to disconnect and wind down will make the most of your time today. In stressful times all we have is the present moment. Moon in Libra until early evening when it goes into Scorpio.
Monday, June 25th, continue your new practice for a few more days. Seek out where the incongruencies meet with what is happening. It can be beneficial to adapt to this unseen world if taken from a humanitarian perspective. A Grand Trine in Water leads opportunities for transformation, healing, empathy, understanding and forgiveness. These days, more of that perspective is needed. Moon in Scorpio.
Tuesday, June 26th, beware of getting into power struggles today. Do observe where those struggles are around you so you can find a path that breaks the bonds of dominance. We are being manipulated and it is not for our best interest. So who benefits? One of the good aspects of the Neptune Retrograde is the games of fear or illusion can be understood if we look hard enough. Especially if we know that something is not right. Don’t take the easy explanation right now. Look for more truth. Moon in Scorpio.
Wednesday, June 27th, for better or worse there will be a lock down on our perception of truth. Unfortunately, not all the information is not available… by design. All you can be sure of is there is one way to look at a situation, and what is important is how does it work out in the future. Moon in Sagittarius.
Thursday, June 28th, a power struggle, a midheaven T Square, and a Magic Rectangle, create a moment in time where you have to really work to be heard. It is a challenge of honor and philosophy. There is no clear winner at this point in time. Good vs evil doesn’t always turn out well. We will know more by the 30th. Just not a good time to get into contracts or negotiations. There will be winners and losers over the next few days. Sadly, the real power forward is consensus or agreement. Moon in Sagittarius.
