Astrology for July 15-21, 2020

Cancer New Moon opposite Saturn - Focus on What You CAN Control

The New Moon at 28 degrees Cancer will take place at 1:32 p.m. EST on July 20th, 2020. This New Moon in Cancer is the the first one in the sign of the Crab since 2017, that's not an eclipse. In some ways, this lessens the intensity, but in direct opposition to Saturn in Capricorn, it poses some challenges to whatever fresh start we are longing for.

Like the parent or teacher who really wants to see us succeed, it seems to be giving us one last chance to acknowledge and get on track with whatever has been transpiring for us in the Cancer/Capricorn areas of our chart.

Astrology for July 8-14, 2020

Mercury Square Mars - War of Words

This week Mercury stations Direct in Cancer. Right before that happens, it squares Mars who is firmly ensconced in his home sign of Aries. This Mercury-Mars tango will continue throughout July, coming exact again at the end of the month. This is a tense situation. But it can also help us assert ourselves if that's something we normally struggle with. As always, working with this energy consciously, yields the best results.

Chiron also has a role to play. He is supervising the dance - there to help us heal through the process and to ultimately grow stronger in the broken places.

Mars in Aries - Charge Ahead!  But... Not So Fast.  Astrology for Last Half of 2020

This week, Mars (The Warrior) enters his home sign of Aries where he will stay for the remainder of 2020! This is a bit like rocket fuel, but a stellium of Planets in Capricorn (Saturn's Home), and the eventual Mars Retrograde, can have us feeling like we have one foot on the gas and one on the brake. 

This week also sees Neptune Station Retrograde, Venus Station Direct, and Jupiter and Pluto forming their second of three conjunctions this year.  There's a lot going on in 2020, and it's not over yet!

Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn - All Prepared or Cramming for Finals?

This week brings the Final eclipse in the Capricorn-Cancer saga that's been playing out for almost 2 years. With Saturn moving back into Capricorn (the sign it rules) this week too, we are back to having extra emphasis on Capricorn for the remainder of the year.

Whatever your personal journey has been in the Capricorn area of your chart, it's time for the final exam! As a collective, we also have some adulting to do.

Solar Eclipse in Cancer Inconjunct Saturn - Birthing Pains

This week, immediately following Mercury's Retrograde Station in Cancer, we have the Solstice as the Sun enters Cancer, AND a Solar Eclipse at 0 degrees Cancer.
This is the second of three eclipses this season and the last eclipse in Cancer for many years. 

This is a most potent eclipse.  Saturn in Aquarius makes an exact Inconjunct/Quincunx to the Eclipse point. This is energy that requires adjustment, trial and error,  a willingness to see our blind spots.
