New Moon and Mars Retrograde 201806/13/2018
July 2018 Solar Eclipse07/11/2018
Mars its turning retrograde July, 26th. Every two years this power house planet of ambition takes a time-out for about two months. That means it has a very long stay in the sign of Aquarius. It pushes you to claim your authenticity and fill in well carved grooves of habit with fresh ideas. June 26th – August 27th you’ll be asked how to make this dynamic turnaround help you plan the next two years forward. Momentum has slowly come to a screeching halt on some projects. Rescheduling is just the start.
Retrogrades are more psychological, and Bill Tierney states the following in Dynamics of Aspect Analysis, “this transit urges for constructive alteration of an energy pattern, that could otherwise become self-depleting and non-productive.” His advice for all retrogrades is retracing our steps and reclaiming something of value. This retrograde takes on (Pluto) transformative energy. We’re more likely to rebuild from scratch or move… than just move the furniture.
The South Node is part of the Mars review. Meetings can feel familiar and fated. The shadow side of Mars retrograde is reacting versus responding. Let’s consider road rage as an example. That’s reacting! If being first means getting in an accident, let’s settle for going with the flow of traffic instead. Especially between July 5th – July 9th.
Ambition turned inward can easily stretch overtime into a constant at work. Burnout is balanced by getting outdoors or playing a sport. The key is to get your heart pumping. Both are perfect remedies to burn stress.
This month’s Full Moon, June 27th, lands on the Sabian Symbol 7-Capricorn, “A veiled prophet speaks, seized by the power of a God”. The words and insights shared by others can help us plan for the future. Maybe we’re deciding what to put on the back burner while priorities gain out attention. Sifting through the barrage of information we receive daily can be daunting.
June 28 – July 4 stimulates new connections. Short trips and creative outlets bring balance to your routine. Navigating obstacles will require a “give to get” feeling or compromise. Let ideas come to you through dream incubation or mediation July 8th.
As Venus enters Virgo, July 9th, mentoring or helping others is highlighted. Partnerships play off each other’s strengths. Relationships have a spontaneous and electric quality around the 11th. And, a surprise meeting could have you talking into the wee hours of the morning.
Shedding dependent habits and claiming a quiet power is how Uranus gets us to step into a more authentic life, July 12th. The eclipse of the New Moon ushers in action concerning personal relationships. More on that next month…
