This month we are off to the races, ready to begin the next phase of our journey.
We start the month with Mars speeding into his home sign of Aries, bringing with him drive and a singular focus that will help us all to pick a direction and get moving. At least for now, he will be avoiding a square with the planets in Capricorn. This will allow at least some progress to move ahead unimpeded even through the series of summer retrogrades.
Saturn retrogrades back into Capricorn, preparing us for the final phase of the great Capricorn conjunction which will dominate the rest of the year. On the 5th, he will be joined by the Moon for a lunar eclipse. In the moments of darkness and silence, sometimes we find the treasure we’ve been seeking. Take this time to truly reflect on your direction and where you would like to be six months from now.
Mercury in Cancer will also avoid the planets in Capricorn, but will square Mars twice, once early in the month, and again after Mercury turns direct. Make sure to watch your words. A quick jab may feel good in the moment, but it is likely to come back to haunt you later.
Finally, the Sun in Cancer will oppose Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn in Capricorn before moving into Leo on the 22nd. This will bring home some of the social strife we’ve seen, making it personal. If you can manage to control your feelings (or at least how you express them) while supporting those closest to you, this period could be one of powerful growth.
