We are feeling an incredible line-up of astrology with Mercury and Mars together with the North Node in Cancer, directly across from Saturn and Pluto and the South Node in Capricorn. We are in a portal between the past and the future, as if suspended out of time. This is a potent time for this Cancer/Capricorn axis, as we officially move into Eclipse Season, July 2019. Cancer is our ability to receive and feel nurtured, while Capricorn represents authoritarian structures that may have gotten in the way. The July Eclipses will take place in Cancer and Capricorn, highlighting the upcoming 2020 Astrology.
Mercury and Mars both want to move forward and are consulting with the North Node of the Moon on how to go. But structures and beliefs, as well as karmic contracts from the past are holding us back, with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury and Mars stay close together for close to a week, as Mercury slows in preparation for a retrograde in July. Mercury enters it’s retrograde shadow on Thursday the 20th, the day before this Solstice.
We are feeling a bloom of the mystical, and yet confusing, energies of 2019 with Saturn in Sextile Neptune, and Jupiter in square to Neptune, both in exact formation for this June Solstice. We are being nudged, or perhaps dragged, kicking and screaming, into a new paradigm. The Universe is having a lot to say, but it’s up to us to take advantage of this powerful time of potent messages.
