Practical Magic for Soul Liberation

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.

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.

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!

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.
