Witchy Wednesday - Astrology for June 20th to 26th, 2018
Mars went Retrograde in Pisces on the 18th and will continue it's inward, retrospective journey until November 24th. This is a time of stripping away any illusion, of clearing the fog, taking off the rose coloured glasses and waking up to reality. We may begin to see where we've been deceived, or deceptive, where we've been escaping reality in unhealthy ways. This is the opportunity for a spiritual vison quest of sorts. The Grand Trine in Water is encouraging us to seize opportunities to use our creative talents, our intuition, connect to our empathy and compassion, to engage in heart centred communication with ourselves, our higher power and the collective.
The Summer Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere) on the 21st, marks the longest day and shortest night of the year. It's the official start to summer, the period when the seeds have been planted and we just need to do the general maintenance until harvest time in the fall. It's time to take a break, enjoy the company of those in our tribe, and nurture ourselves. Celebrate the small victories you have won since the last solstice and harness the sun's energy to help you shine a light on what you want to accomplish over the next 6 months.
Mars Retrograde beginning on the 26th and lasting until September, is a time to think before you act. It's not a time to be impulsive and push forward aggressively. Deal with issues of anger, and aggression in productive ways, or it may be time to pay the piper for past aggressions.
Time to let cooler heads prevail, take a step back and think about whether or not your approach to getting what you want has been working for you, or if it needs to be refined.
