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!

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.

Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse Square Mars - Challenging our Ideologies 

We enter eclipse season with the first eclipse @15 degrees of Sagittarius (mutable fire).  This eclipse square Mars has the potential for assertiveness turning into aggression, tempers may (continue to) flare over differing ideologies (Sagittarius). This first eclipse in Sagittarius, is giving us hints as to what the story is shaping up to be over these next 18 months. 

There is so much else happening that is also part of the story playing out recently, and in all of 2020.  Listen to the video for the details and where this eclipse is falling in your chart.

Mars Conjunct Neptune Square Sun - What Do We Stand For?

As we sit between eclipses, there is some tension (a square) happening between Mars and Neptune currently conjunct in Pisces, and the Sun in Gemini.
This energy can have us standing up and fighting for a cause in the collective, in our personal lives, or both. But, there may be some tension and confusion around what is the right/correct/most aligned action to take. Our identity/ego/life force can be challenged. We may not have all the information we need, or we may be mislead into believing certain things that aren't factual. When we know what stand for and why, we can act with more certainty.
If we simply lash out based on fear-based instincts or half-truths, we may cause unintentional harm. However, sometimes imperfect action is better than no action at all. We must each decide for ourselves.

This planetary energy can also take a toll on our physical vitality - so it's imperative we're mindful of our own health and wellbeing, and that we don't lash out because we are feeling particularly sensitive or vulnerable.

Mercury Conjunct NN then into Cancer - The Editing Process

Although at first glance it appears to be a relatively benign week, there are definitely some things to take note of.
Along with Mars Conjunt Ceres sextile Uranus, Pallas is moving back into Capricorn - bringing her energy of creative problem solving and ingenuity to the current situation.

Furthermore, Mercury is hitting the North Node in Gemini just before it moves into Cancer where it will remain until August 4th as it retrogrades there between June 18th and July 12th. This is giving us first a glimpse into where we're headed for the next 18 months, and then a chance to focus our thinking and communications on what's close, personal and brings us a sense of emotional security.  As the retrograde approaches, we get a chance to review the story that's been transpiring in relation to the Cancer Capricorn energies that have been at the forefront in recent years and what lessons we will take with us moving forward.
