9/9 ~ Mars Retro in ARIES:
When Mars Retrogrades, it is the time to do the Inner Self-Work – to redefine what you really want and how you express the power & passion of Mars – which is how you go about getting what you want in life. It spends June 2020 – Jan 2021 in ARIES so you may feel the Retrograde in that whatever direction you were heading in (over the last 2 years) may now be slowed or even reversed (temporarily at least). Things that were easy may seem challenging and things that used to be challenging may now become easier or simplified. Remember, all delays & detours are not necessarily “bad”.
9/9 ~ Mars Retro in ARIES:
8/24 ~ Mars (anger/action) ~square~ Saturn (frustration/limitations):
(1 of 3: 8/24 ~ 9/29 ~ 1.13.2021)
This is the energy of action being restricted and the anger or frustration that follows. You can either be angry and feel restricted, limited and unable to move … or you can see this energy as an opportunity to define the right actions to take and strategically plan to take them when the Universe is more supportive. This energy requires us to slow down and double-check The Plan. If you proceed consciously, your plan has a better chance of success than if you were reckless & impatient. You may experience a blockage of some sort, internal or external. You may feel this tremendous urge to change or move forward in your life but seem to find blockages and limitations with every effort. That is likely your perception, do you feel inadequate to the task at hand? What are you afraid of? Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real – release fear and choose to be responsible for creating your own life. If you don’t, your outer circumstance only becomes a reflection of your inner belief. You will attract criticism and repel support.
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.
Note from Kelly:
This RE-Post is so “on time” for now because I literally wrote it the last time we had Cancer/Capricorn Eclipses, only last time it was a Capricorn focus and we were releasing toxic Cancer. This time, we are releasing toxic Capricorn and anchoring a new Cancer focus – which is totally covered in this article. It still applies at this time 2018-2020.
This month, the Cancer energy will activate you on the deepest Soul levels. This energy is best when you direct it to Feel & Digest what is going on in and around you … take in and assimilate all nutrients, while eliminating all toxins and excess.
The *Summer Retrogrades* always extend us a type of grace that shifts the focus (and support) to the work behind the scenes (personal/individual), so do not squander this time on people or circumstances which no longer “fit” the vision you hold for your life. If you allow yourself to get caught up in the storm (of now), you will find when things move forward (Dec/Jan) that you are not in a position to take full advantage of the opportunities. This Summer is about *Completion & Closure* on all old projects and past inclinations. You are moving rapidly toward the “new you” and you can no longer “wing it” (the old way) because you are in completely new territory, where new rules apply.
Note from Kelly:
When I reviewed May & Sept 2018-2019, they were all surrounded with additional potent energies like Mercury Retrograde assisting our mental processing of the reality we’re living and Chiron just moving into Aries asking us to be more proactive on our behalf where healing, education & soul work is considered if we were going to be responsible adults in life and New Moons, activating new beginnings for us all along with Venus Retrograde in Scorpio rearranging the values & priorities. Now here we are, facing very different choices & commitments than we could’ve ever dreamed up from then to now. We have additional information now but also different needs & desires. If nothing else, we can say during Saturn’s journey through Capricorn this time, we got more serious about something (look to your Capricorn House). Here I give you my 2-cents on Saturn Retro & Direct, plus Chiron in Aries for good measure.

As we enter the current Pisces energy, many people will be feeling more sensitive than usual, picking up all kinds of information via all six senses. Over-sensitivity that disrupts your flow and takes you away from your center is one thing, but a better way to think of this energy is to ponder the concept of how sound penetrates when you put your head under water. It is likely the same sensation as when you were in the womb of your mother’s belly. You actually “feel” the sounds more than you “hear” them, you “sense” all the activity around you. That is the essence of NOW.
