Forecast Jul 6-12, 2020: Rejuvenation Station

Though barely half over, for many Earthlings 2020 has already been a long year. This week the planets are offering some gentle relief, powerful psychic insight and a second wind, courtesy of the healing, relaxing water signs. By Sunday the Mercury retrograde will be over and a spirit-alchemizing Sun trine to Neptune will be exact. Before we get there, there is a little friction, via a Mercury square to Mars early Wednesday. But if we sidestep provocation or at least thoughtfully express our positions, molehills will remain molehills. Mellow Pisces provides perspective and a desire to work toward inclusive, holistic solutions. Following the Mercury Mars square, the Moon will conjoin Neptune during its Pisces visit, from Wednesday through late Friday night. This will buoy the building Sun Neptune trine. Presently the Sun and Mercury are in Cancer, the cardinal water sign that nurtures. Retrogrades allow us to pause, reflect and realign where needed. If we go with the cosmic flow of this week, we can emerge refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to tackle part two of 2020.

Forecast Jun 29-Jul 5, 2020: Getting It Done

When a week begins with giant Jupiter making an exact conjunction with powerful Pluto and it ends with a full Capricorn moon and lunar eclipse, big things are on the table. Throw Saturn retrograding back into enterprising Capricorn, Mars firing up the engines in Aries and the Sun and Mercury making connections with wildcard Uranus from cardinal Cancer, and you don’t have to wait for the Fourth of July for some fireworks.

The emphasis is now firmly on the initiating cardinal signs. These are astrology’s best tools for motivation, invigoration and activation. This week’s action gets off to a seismic start late Monday night when Jupiter and Pluto have their second of three 2020 meetings. The last time that these two joined forces was on April 4th, when the USA was going into lockdown and the CARES Act was being passed. Their second meeting, in the sign of banking, business and government, takes place while the airwaves are already abuzz with talk of PPP 2.0 and the next round of stimulus checks for Americans. This time, however, these planets are retrograde, along with Mercury, Saturn and Neptune. Also, Saturn is about to leave the humanitarian realms of Aquarius for austere Capricorn. Congress isn’t scheduled to get back to work until mid July, and second wave spikes in COVID-19 are also already taking place. So even big guns like Jupiter and Pluto will have to keep their powder dry a bit longer. But when the next package is finalized, we can expect it to be supersized.

The news cycle is set for its own spike on Tuesday afternoon when the Sun and Mercury sextile Uranus, the planet of shock and awe, and the Sun and Mercury take a meeting of their own in between those Uranus hookups. On Wednesday Saturn returns home to pragmatic Capricorn. This places the planet of structure and discipline back on terra firma and into the same sign as Jupiter and Pluto. Its retrograde motion will bring the three closer together, from now through mid December. Underscoring the week’s decidedly Capricorn essence, the moon will move into the cardinal earth sign on Friday and prepare for its Sunday zenith at 13 Cap 38 and a lunar eclipse. We’re moving from Q2 to Q3 of 2020 and from the first half of the year to the second. In the macro, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will concentrate on the economy. In the micro, Mars will prompt and prod us into action. This is a good week to consider yearend goals and to begin harnessing the power of Capricorn to accomplish them.

Forecast Jun 22-28, 2020: Reflecting Pool

Beginning on Saturday June 27th, rambunctious Mars will reclaim and dominate his home turf of fiery, feisty Aries. Once there, the combustable ferocity of the red planet will be interlocked with the raw, direct energy of the cardinal fire sign, for the next six months. Before the fireworks ignite, Mars will transit the potent, late degrees of mellow, meditative Pisces. While he’s doing that, Pisces’ ruler Neptune will slip into its retrograde and Venus will emerge from her retrograde slumber. An abundance of nurturing Cancer energy is also on tap this week. The Sun and Mercury are in the intuitive water sign, and waves from the new Cancer moon and eclipse of June 21st are still reaching shores. On the surface, Venus will animate our material desires and attractions from social Gemini, and Mars, especially when in Aries, will activate our drive to attain them. But, leagues beneath the sea, it’s Neptune’s behind-the-scenes orchestration that’s worthy of consideration.

Neptunian Questions
What am I striving for?
What transformation am I seeking?
What does redemption mean to me?
Where am I experiencing urgency in terms of my life plans and purpose?
How can I bring divine clarity and alignment into my present, daily life?

Starting late Monday, Neptune will enter a five month review period. Its contemplative power asks us to examine, understand and evaluate our motivations and their purpose in our lives. Like all of the outer planets, Neptune is subtle and impersonal. It’s also associated with mysticism, hidden memory and the unconscious. So fully grasping, much less getting a firm grip on its meaning and messages can indeed prove illusive. Furthermore, under the influence of this giant, borderless and effusive planet, we can glean profound guidance just as easily as we can fritter away the next five months daydreaming. So learning how to distill this oceanic force into manageable increments might be a good way to access its tremendous yet impressionistic insight. Prayer, meditation or creative practice may open and sustain channels of Divine communication. Then again, grocery store epiphanies can be equally as valuable and provable when Neptune is evoked. But actively seeking helps. This retrograde lasts until November 28th, and its start coincides with Mercury’s current retrograde in the fellow water sign of Cancer. All of the water signs are intrinsically psychic. Atop the waves, where most of us are comfortable swimming, the logical Messenger may be functioning as a translator, between us and Neptune’s vast, esoteric realms. And perhaps, it’s provocative Mars at peak Pisces, who is prompting us toward deeper exploration.
