Astrologically, the coming week/month is very challenging. The upcoming transits, phenomenal in their power, force, strength and multiplicity (with more to come), have long-range, enduring and continuing effects upon all of humanity’s endeavors.
Thursday, Mars enters Libra. Mars presents humanity with nine tests, including testing our ability to recognize and discriminate between the two forces presently at battle on our planet.
Simultaneously, as Libra asks us to choose sides, Mars allows us to distinctly see the difference between personality and the Soul. Watch the news for “arbitration,” mediation (Libra) between two distinct factions often at war (Mars).
Friday, Mars opposes Uranus (explosions!). Saturday Mars/Saturn (Libra) opposes Uranus (new archetypes) in Aries (initiating new realities). Monday, retro Jupiter (in Aries) squares Pluto in Capricorn. We must respond to the present transformations (Pluto) differently.
Tuesday, combining the above-mentioned planets with the U.S. chart, a Cardinal Grand Square (change initiated) is formed with Venus/Jupiter (money) in Cancer (U.S. chart). The June 26 lunar eclipse (things in form dissolve) is activated. What will disappear next? Everything no longer useful.
Wednesday, Mars opposes Jupiter and squares Pluto (more big explosions!), creating a celestial T-square (two squares). With Pluto involved, we’re hastening toward fundamental, essential, sweeping and thorough transformation. It’s time, and we all know it.
ARIES: A new and unusual era begins for you, including a new belief in yourself (gradually forming) and a new way of working in the world (also gradual). Careful of health and especially diet. Be regular with exercise and vitamins. Sometimes fiery (and mutable) signs can’t maintain a regimen of health supplements. However, they’re vital to your present tasks, upcoming demands and essential to your longevity.
TAURUS: In so many ways you’re becoming the fish of the zodiac, Pisces. Some may find this disheartening. However, it’s very special having Pisces characteristics. Yes, it’s difficult to see, to walk and to keep a purposeful focus. Yes, you become accident-prone, clumsy, and only the moment is real. However, and even with all these physical obstructions, your job description becomes world savior. You “see” differently.
GEMINI: The message each week focuses on the same information — that of you and groups and both expanded due to your participation. However, you must begin to discriminate and choose which groups are part of the New Group of World Servers and people of Goodwill. As the months progress, it is these groups you will be magnetized toward. They call to you. Can you hear?
CANCER: So many things are culminating for you: long-held hopes and wishes are coming true (look around), and these will bring forth new opportunities, aid and assistance and a deeper love given and received. You often act alone, rarely asking for help. Where you find yourself now was achieved with little assistance from others. Now new realities appear, new goals, hopes, wishes and dreams. And healing. Someone left. Someone appears.
LEO: In the next year your horizons will expand. You have travel fever and wanderlust, which means your life is about to open up and your mind is ready, willing and able. The next year should be a philosophical adventure. A companion? Perhaps not. You’ve been there, done that (wounds in relationship, dissolving relationships), yes? Although I never write clichés, that one is appropriate. Happy birthday.
VIRGO: Let’s see … what are the keywords here for you — power, death, rebirth, reorientation, sex, inheritance, shared resources. Some or all will knock, then sail into your living room for a visit. All can create chaos, mayhem and disorder. Try not to misapply, misuse or abuse any of them or, like a snake protecting itself, the sting is poisonous. You understand.
LIBRA: Good things, almost too good to be true, will occur in the next year. Money and relationships increase. This creates new responsibilities. Sometimes with money, we don’t know how to handle it. Sometimes with excellent relationships, we (Librans) only think of ourselves. It’s important to have a relationship talk, asking if goals, dreams, wishes, hopes, fears and handling money are compatible. The question is what does one do if they aren’t?
SCORPIO: In all things, especially food, diet, health and exercise, there must be a constancy and regularity created. There’s a possibility that food, drink, drugs (any types) and sex are in excess, and over time, health begins to fail. You have the will to not let this occur. It’s good to examine if your daily work is serving you and helping others. If not, you have the courage to change either the work or your perceptions.
SAGITTARIUS: You will have days in which everything’s in a state of release, transformation and change and then days of harmony, ease and blended realities. This tension will create the attention needed to create new things (artistic) and express yourself differently. If a parent, you’ll enhance and improve everything about and for your children (nieces, nephews, etc.). But most of all, in between these high endeavors, you’ll seek (need) fun, pleasure and perhaps even a new (aghast!) lover! Maybe.
CAPRICORN: At times being the parent or head of household will feel so vast you’ll want to run away from home. Running is a good thing (for exercise, to win a race), but do come home again. Everyone needs you. Oh, dear, if you hear the words “needs you” again, you’ll expire! You’re restless for new realities, a new home and more psychological, physical and emotional room. What you also need is a new foundation (support for self) to belief in. Where’s you mommy?
AQUARIUS: You are busy learning new information (or seeking it out) and travel’s in the cards. How you ask? Over time it will appear. Have you been or are you in contact with brothers and sisters, relatives, family? Whether relations with them are good or bad, be in touch. Don’t expect anything in return. You need to encounter something new — actually many things new. How do you learn best?
PISCES: You’re on the edge of things, waiting for new realities, wondering how to value yourself, how to use money appropriately. You want to begin something, not knowing how. Most important is how you feel about yourself, which, in the past years, has fallen a bit. A change must occur for you, a resource, a safe haven. In Permaculture, which observes living systems, “the most diversity exists at the edges. It is here that change happens naturally.” Stay at the edge.
