"If you think the movement of the planets doesn't have an affect on you, think about this. Just as one small pebble tossed into a pond creates a ripple effect in the stillness of the water, so does the movement of the heavenly bodies affect us. The movement of the planets or heavenly bodies affects our actions, moods, and our thoughts just as the movement of the small pebble tossed into the pond affects the inhabitants living within the pond." ~ Miss Dee.
Here's what's happening in our amazing solar system this month and next month.
Mars Retrograde in Aquarius, June 26 - August 26, 2018
Mars rules personal energy. When Mars is retrograde or moving backward, our personal energy seems to disappear. We are fatigued, short tempered, accident prone, and often don't eat correctly.
Aquarius governs humanitarian endeavors, scientific and/or medical research, technology, and good old-fashioned help your neighbor energy.
With Mars Retrograde in Aquarius, we may feel we are too tired to prepare a nourishing meal or help our neighbor repair the fence. We may run a yellow light because we're in a hurry or multi-task with no success.
What should we be doing during this retrograde cycle? Sit back and relax: you don't have to be doing something every waking moment. Slow down and focus on the task at hand. Reprioritize your "to do" list and finish projects.
* Special note: Mercury goes Retrograde on July 26, 2018. It turns Direct on August 19, 2018. If you are unfamiliar with the Mercury Retrograde cycle, these two articles, Beggs n' Econ and Bumbled Articulation, will explain what Mercury Retrograde creates in a person's life and what needs to be learned.
The sun is in the sensitive, loyal, self-shielding, intuitive sign of Cancer. Cancer sun sign hide their feelings from the world so no one can read their moods. They also brood over past injustices and losses until their tummy churns. The broad subject of metaphysics is fascinating to them but also feared.
You might be asking, what does the sun in Cancer, Taurus, Aries, or any other sign have to do with me? You and everyone else have the Sun, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Venus, and all the other planets moving or transiting around the outside of your natal chart, which creates a temporary refocus of attention, thought, and/or energy in different areas of your life.
For example, if Pisces is your second house of money, you may be tempted to give one paycheck per month to a friend in need and use the other paycheck on the necessities of life. Another example, if Aries is your sixth house of health, you may have more headaches or hit your head more often than most people. These or other temporary refocusing of your energy or attention is what the sun or another planet moving around the outside of your natal chart has to do with you!
More personally speaking, here's what you can look forward to this month.
