Mars Gets His Ass In Gear--finally

Mars Direct

Let’s go over the details again:
Feb 17 - Mars in shadow
April 17 – Mars retrograde 9 Sag
May 27 – Mars returns to Scorpio
June 29 –  Mars direct 23 Scorpio
August 2 Mars returns to Sag
August 22 Mars leaves shadow


On June 29 Mars will turn direct in Scorpio having been retrograde since April.   As we have discussed in previous reports Mars is normally in a sign for a couple weeks and then moves on.   With a retrograde he is in one or two signs for five months.   And I say, who doesn’t like filling a cavity without Novocain?   That’s what it feels like when Mars is retrograde.  But hurray, he will be going direct in this adaptable cycle.    Money and debt and taxes and sex have been in the quagmire for the last few months but after Mars turns direct we will all feel and see the energy shift.    Luckily we will have all of July to fix any left over Scorpio issues and we will do it pretty darn quick (remember it’s Mars) and then in August Mars returns to Sag for a couple more weeks of getting our adventurous spirit and education and philosophies energized.   For a more personal take as to what Mars is doing in the houses go here:



Astrology This Week


We begin the week....
...in last quarter moon.  This is our final push of actions based on the seeds we planted on New Moon three weeks ago.   Back on the new moon I wrote that this was a pretty twisted up 29 days and frankly it has not failed to deliver skank.  Lord.  Where to begin? Orlando. Brexit. Alligators drowning toddlers.   Awful.   And this week we all take a look at our investments that shrank.    Sigh.
Now we act on things that support our independence and our fire in the belly.   Break out and break throughs are highlighted. 
Mars will turn direct on the 29th.  I'm ready for it. I think you are as well.  
Friday we go into Balsamic and we begin to release.  All weekend long consider where you are stubborn and 'stuck'.  It is time to release.   And by July 4 we get our New Moon in Cancer where emotions, family and cozy come to the forefront.  



Last Quarter Moon Phase

Last Quarter moon:  Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense.  And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action.  It is a time for living  “The serenity prayer

God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.



Focus on:
What actions are you taking that speak to independence?  What actions are you taking that break you free from old ways?  What actions are you taking that take care of number one (that would be you)?  

Special focus:
6/29: Mercury enters Cancer
6/29: Mars direct (see above)

Balsamic:   We let go.  By releasing we can prepare for the new. 

Focus on We release our stubbornness.  We release our stick in the mudness.  We release our blocks.  We release our willfulness.  


Special focus:

6/30: Venus/Pluto.  Love of power.  Power at odds with love.
7/3: Sun/Neptune:  Inspired coziness. Inspired warmth from family.

Sagittarius Full Moon
June 20, 7:02 am EDT
29 Sag 32  

Here we are again. 

Yes, this is our second Sagittarius full moon in a row.  
Every few years we will have a full moon at around zero or one degree of a sign and then 29 days later we will have a second full moon around twenty nine degrees of that same sign.  The last time we had consecutive full moons was in 2013.     When these full moons come up they are teaching us the truth of the sign and asking us what we have learned since the first full moon and how can we use what we learned for the second moon?

In this case, what have we learned that speaks to the Sag energy since the last full moon on May 21st?   How were we courageous and brave when confronted with truth?   What truth have you learned from others or yourselves since that Sag full moon?    Be prepared for more truth with this full moon.

This Full Moon arrives a few days after the Saturn square Neptune where we have discussed ad naseum  that we are in a period where we must “Walk our Talk”.    How fitting that we get a second full moon in Sag while we process our walking and talking.      The universe is gonging us on the head, trying to get our attention.  Gong, gong, gong.  What is going on?   Who is hiding behind righteousness?  Who is hiding behind lies?   What is hiding behind an ADHD world or schedule?  Who is hiding behind shallowness?   What is hiding behind the stories that are told?      What is the real truth?  And are you responding to it and not just words?    Where are you brave and telling the truth?  If not---why not?

On this full moon, the moon trines Uranus and opposes Venus accenting breakthrough and breakouts based on love and values.  What is true about how you love?  What is true about who you love?   How are you walking your talk about love?  How do beliefs impact love?    Remember, the Sun in Gemini sends our brain in overwhelm.   Venus is in conjunction to the Sun (and oppose the moon) but it is out of sign.  It is not in Gemini, it is in Cancer.     This full moon will expose when your brain outsmarts the heart.    The heart knows what it feels and does not need the brain or mind gas lighting the feelings.   (google “to gas light someone” if you don’t understand the reference).    

There is a lesson in this full moon also from Chiron.   Chiron in Pisces is teaching us how to serve our humanity.  How do we respond to humans?   Lovers, friends, family sometimes get all our goodness and humanity gets little.  Sometimes strangers get our love and family, lovers and friends get little.    What is out of balance?  What tricks does your mind tell you about humans?     And more to the point where are stories about victims catching your attention (Chiron in Pisces) and can you use the full moon to move and adapt (Gemini) your beliefs (Sag) so that you can be more purposeful (Sun) as you go through your world?   

We all will be learning lessons this full moon.   And we all have something to teach one another.  The key is stepping up an elevating the conversation and not hanging out in the pity party.   

Onward, soldiers, be brave!

Saturn and Neptune


On June 17 
Saturn in Sag will exactly square Neptune in Pisces for the second time.  The final round will be September 10th.    The first round of this battle took place on November 27.  Since that time we began a cycle of walking our talk and defining truth.   Truth outside in the world and the truth held deep in our heart and subconscious.  Since then a number of you have been feeling your own psychic awareness increase.  Many of you are feeling more and more synchronistic.  You think about someone and they show up.  You wonder about a thing and if it would be good in your life and suddenly that thing is offered to you.  It just seems as if you are put in the right place at the right time.   Feels like Dharma.   And sure there are also those moments where it seems to be the wrong time and wrong place.  Feels like karma.    And it is my opinion THAT is why god in his infinite wisdom not only gave us the second Saturn square Neptune during the Gemini cycle, he also made sure that the Sun and Moon were in aspect with Saturn and Neptune.  Obviously, we are getting this lesson come hell or high water.    The lesson is: ADAPT or pay a price. 


If you want to be in sync with life and feel the flow from your heart and the universe (Neptune in Pisces) you need to pull back the righteousness.  The know it all.  The shoot from your hip.  The blow hard--in short, the Saturn in Sag.     And you need to consider the beliefs inside you.     Case in point, if you believe life is hard (and you live in the first world not third world).   You are right.  Life is hard.  But what if you dare to shift off that calcified opinion and changed it to “life is an adventure” you may have a different experience.   Seriously, it may be different.    Can you do it?  Can you shift that opinion?   And if not, why are you resistant?    These questions speak to Gemini.    Gemini is all about questions.   He asks. He pokes. He prods.    Use the Gemini energy to help you process the Saturn/Neptune Square.
