Just Four More Things – Astrology
It’s one other action-packed week. In my final e-newsletter I discussed among the pleasure we needed to stay up for: properly, right here we are actually. Mars entered Aries final Saturday, June 27. Jupiter met up with Pluto on the cusp of June 29 and June 30 (sooner or later or the opposite relying in your time zone). Saturn entered Capricorn on Wednesday, July 1. And there’s a Full Moon Eclipse arising this weekend (once more, relying in your time zone) on the night of Saturday the Fourth of July or the wee hours of Sunday, July 5.
When you’re feeling unsteady, I don’t blame you! This can be a entire lot of change to absorb.
Mars will stay in Aires for the following six months; he received’t enter Taurus until January 2021. The excellent news is, Mars *likes* to be in Aires — he guidelines it (in addition to co-ruling Scorpio with Pluto) and it looks like a very good match for his pure energies. Much less-good information: in Aries, Mars can get out of hand. Mars is the God of Warfare, Anger, Assertion, and Motion, and Aries is the signal most related to all these issues.
A lot as we would want for a break, the second half of 2020 will not be going to be any smoother or extra “regular” than the primary. Mars in Aries is intense and adrenalized. Your job is to harness Mars’s force and use it for good.
Is there one thing happening that makes you so rattling mad? Don’t be frightened of your emotions. As Martha Beck says, anger is “the psychological equal of the immune system”; it’s a wholesome and acceptable response to the presence of injustice. Use the uptick in anger related to Mars in Aries to propel your self and your world ahead. It’s a strong, passionate power. It may possibly assist you get a terrific deal completed within the subsequent six months. Simply don’t begin any arguments you’re not ready to complete.
Keep in mind! Decrease type Mars key phrases: acrimony, antagonism, fury, ire, rage, outrage. impatience, irritation, resentment, mood, violence, chagrin, choler, gall, huff, miff rankling stew, soreness, umbrage. Increased type: certain, sure, distinctive, dynamic, tenacious, hardy, empowered, formidable, highly effective, assured, decided, impressed, artistic, wholesome, renewed, vibrant, strengthened, invigorated, refreshed . . . in addition to our favourite PASSION. (That is from The Astrological Thesaurus by Michael Munkasey.)
One in all my lecturers, Johanna Carroll, talks in regards to the 9 points of the universe: Love, Mild, Life, Peace, Energy, Magnificence, Concord, Pleasure, and Abundance. She’s launched me to the thought of a morning meditation on a number of of those points, that I discover very useful. If you first get up, earlier than your toes hit the bottom, you say: “I’m (your identify) and I’m (your facet of selection).” Write these down on a notecard and hold it by your mattress to orient Mars earlier than he begins taking motion on the planet!
When Jupiter and Pluto met final week, it was the second of their three conjunctions this 12 months. The primary conjunction was on April 4 and the final can be November 12. Collectively, these Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions sow the seeds for a brand new 38-year cycle round energy, transformation, evolution. Like Aladdin together with his three needs, every of those three conjunctions offers us one other shot at articulating what it’s we wish.
Every of those three conjunctions is, too, a brand new alternative to filter no matter isn’t working and make house for what is going to. It’s as if to procure a home in the beginning of the 12 months: in April you determined to transform the kitchen, in June you opened the wall and located it filled with mildew, and in November you’ll lastly get the mission underway, sturdy and as much as code. You may be able to commit!
Their remaining assembly in November is on the identical diploma, 22 Capricorn, the place the brand new 38 12 months cycle began early January over the last eclipses. These subsequent few months we make clear our plans for the brand new beginnings going down in our lives. Launch issues holding you again. Filter out the outdated and outworn. Let go of bags you now not wish to carry
Saturn is dancing with Jupiter and Pluto, too. He spent a number of weeks progressing by way of the early levels of Aquarius, earlier than stopping on Could 10 and starting to go backward. On July 1, he entered Capricorn by way of the again door, and he’ll stay there till mid-December. Saturn retrograde — particularly in Capricorn — is all about rethinking constructions. What establishments are important to your properly being? What could be defunded and distributed with?
When you’re something like me, you is likely to be planning to observe the filmed stage musical Hamilton when it arrives on Disney Plus this weekend. A lot of the American founding fathers’ story has to do with their worry of unchecked, unbalanced energy! How can we, collectively and in our personal lives, reconfigure the constructions round us, to assist our neighborhood and type a extra good union? I don’t know but, however that’s the task.
Oh, and did I point out that America’s birthday this 12 months coincides with the ultimate ECLIPSE of our summer season season? It’s a Full Moon in Capricorn, simply after midnight on Sunday, July 5 within the Japanese time zone. This Eclipse, like the 2 in June, belongs to the identical 19-year Metonic cycle as 9/11. It’s no hyperbole to say that this, now, is a second of cultural change as dramatic because the modifications of 2001.
This time, let’s make it change for the higher.
