Scorpio brought some very real, very heavy duty stuff to the surface for most people. That kind of deep energy shift is the catalyst for the *Spiritual Quest* energy of Sag. Sagittarius is the adventurer and researcher of the zodiac, curious about the deeper meaning of all things and cultivating Truth. Since we know that all seeds germinate in the darkness, where Scorpio’s magic breathes life in to Taurus’ Garden, we now encounter the most vital part of the process ~ Sag’s unwavering FAITH in the process that leads to Capricorn’s tangible Earthly results (form).
Scorpio energy conjures so many visuals for me …
• Phoenix from the ashes
• Purification by fire and/or water
• Inevitable change
• Sacrifice of the old to birth the new
• Making the taboo sacred
• Death, rebirth & transformation
• Touring the Underworld
• Delving deeply into the SoulSelf
10/11 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~square~ Jupiter (imagination & truth):
This is a powerful energy and with that comes the necessity of discernment – it provokes you to get lots of things accomplished and that’s a good thing, however, beware of taking on more than you can actually handle. Having said that now, if you need that little “push” to get some things done, this is just the energy for you. It carries with it the optimism necessary to allow you to go beyond your norm and stretch in new ways.
Libra energy is best for evaluating all your relationships, collaborations & partnerships, personal or business. Are things fair & balanced? Most relationships are rarely “equal”, but how do you feel about the exchange of energy or reciprocity at this time? Is there any kind of imbalance? That should be your focus this month. Libra energy helps us see all sides of an issue or our lives, and this energy gives us the capacity to access a win/win situation if we only open up to the possibilities and be more receptive to teamwork. Get out of selfish Aries—it’s all about ME-mode, consider what would the most beautiful & inspiring and what would best serve all involved and voila’ – you are using Libra energy the way it was intended.
Mars Retrograde is a special occasion and can be full of surprises. The last time it happened was in 2018, when it crossed between Capricorn & Aquarius (Earth & Air) during March–Nov 2018. The last time it retrograded in Aries was July 1988-Jan 1989. Mars Retro is rewiring your desire nature and inner sacred masculine ~ in the Area of Life (House). Whether male or female, we all have to hold good boundaries, negotiate on our own behalf and get our ideas out into the world. You can consciously co-create with this personal planet every two years when it gets a potent upgrade.
Virgo gives everyone a chance to “process, sort & sift” all that has come up in the last nine months. There is a line in the book, Little Soul & the Sun by Neale Donald Walsh, that says, “Now that I know WHO I AM, I want to BE it!” And I must suggest that in order for you to “BE” all that you discovered about your essential nature (in Leo) and what nourishes and supports you on the deepest levels (in Cancer), Virgo is the energy that extracts the BEST of YOU and helps you heal and/or release all that is no longer relevant or useful – within and around you.
This month is all about YOU!! This energy always makes me want to sing, “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine …” If you did the Cancer work of clearing emotional debris (ineffective reactions, old habits, past events or people) from your life and anchored your inner sense of belonging, then you should be quite ready for Leo’s heart-centered radiance to shine through you. If you tend to be shy or hide your own light under a bushel, then it may signify a time for you to get out anyway to share, socialize and be seen! What’s the use of clearing a space for all your good and then sitting around waiting for it to knock on your door? It ain’t gonna happen that way! Leo energy is where our courage lives and asks us to tap in and recharge that battery annually, if not more often.
This month is ALL ABOUT YOU … the NEW you!! Release all that is no longer “truth” for you – on every level. Begin the process of integrating these amazing new aspects you’ve recently discovered about your Self and HONOR who you have worked so hard to become!! You may have to re-train the people in your life to honor who you’ve become too ~ simply by your living example. When YOU change, everything around you changes or it goes away naturally. You may want to try to find peace with the fact that some people and situations will have to move out of your life at this time. Pay attention! A change of directions has been coming for a while now and all things have fallen into place ~ new life is NOW!
6/28 ~ Mars (action) ~sextile~ Saturn (endurance):
This energy gives you a tremendous power booster to your drive to create stability, as you define it. You will be more willing to do the work, starting with a plan that is carefully thought out and then methodically carried out. Plan and Do! Not just one or the other, but both, which can eventually produce solid results. The rewards for your hard work or the return on your investment will reflect what energy you have put in to stabilizing your life.
Cancer time brings us face-to-face with some major choices & decisions (Eclipses) which will likely require some form of Assimilation & Elimination. Cancer’s gift is Processing all that passes through your system, taking in the nutrient (that makes the system work) and any excess or toxins that cannot be “assimilated” must be “eliminated”. If you do not eliminate them, then blockages (and some form of dis-ease or discomfort) will occur.
