It’s a great day to change something so actions are more efficient in order to reduce stress and enjoy life. Where are you scattering your energy? Open, honest communication works best today, if you have the courage.

Mars in Leo continues its standoff in a Fixed T-square with Saturn Rx and Uranus with Venus trying to join the party. Meanwhile, the waning Moon in Aries sextiles Mercury and squares Pluto Rx today.

Anxiety or pressure may be coming from the tension of trying to drive fast with the brakes on. Thoughts, words, actions, AND emotions may all be racing, and yet nothing seems to really go anywhere… at least not as fast as you would like.

With Saturn in its domicile, usually it would be best to stick to the usual routine. But Saturn is retrograde and Mars and Uranus need something to change.

Facing an issue DIRECTLY and doing something DIFFERENT this time is highly rewarded.

Facing a concern head on is not for the faint of heart, and yet you’ll find it wasn’t as big of a problem as you thought. In fact, you can even use the issue to make your life easier, more relaxed, beautiful, or enjoyable. What honestly feels BEST to you? You can go ahead and do THAT.

RELATIONSHIPS: Some people may need lots of space and no pressure before they feel safe to come out of their shell or open up in vulnerability. Some may feel defensive, or there may be conflict if someone feels constricted. Allowing individuals to be themselves constitutes harmony. People learn best through their own choices and experiences.


Release Emotions to Move Forward

June 28 – July 4, 2021

  • Monday, June 28: Mars sextile North Node, Waning Gibbous Moon in Pisces
  • Tuesday, June 29: Grand Fire Trine: Mars, Chiron, Juno Rx
  • Wednesday, June 30: Mars trine Juno Rx, Grand Fire Trine: Mars, Chiron, Juno Rx; VOC Moon

  • Saturday, July 3: Moon in Taurus
  • Sunday, July 4: Mars square Uranus, Sun square Chiron
  • (Monday, July 5: Mercury square Neptune Rx)

Mars is in the spotlight this week as it triggers the Saturn Uranus square and forms a Grand Fire Trine with Chiron and Juno Rx. Late in the week, on Sunday, the Sun squares Chiron which can highlight painful family issues.

As we delve into the heart of Cancer season while five planets are retrograde, some people are forced to clear out emotional clogs before they can move forward.

Digging through emotional issues may not seem very fun, but if you’re the type that feels your feelings and lets it all go, this week can be fun indeed – as long as you can stay focused and persistent in your own life work or a singular objective.

There’s potential for MAJOR accomplishment this week if you can maintain the BEAUTIFUL balance between inspiration and discipline – which is needed to produce high quality work, and commit to high quality products, as well as RELIABLE people you respect and value. If you’re selective and STICK to your STANDARDS, you’re right on track.

Distractions are strong for the month of July, unless you’re genuinely focused.

It’s only buried emotions you need to be concerned about, because ignored or resisted emotions tend to cause problems in your life, career, and relationships.

If you can take time to look into an unresolved wound from the past, you might see how it’s keeping you from honestly ENJOYING your work or relationships, as well as achieving something you’re proud of.

If you’re already fully enjoying a successful life, all you need to do is STAY FOCUSED. Yes, I’m talking to you, escape artists and people pleasers. There may be drama around you or people trying to pull you into their drama so they can avoid facing their stuff.

Give people plenty of space to make all the mistakes and figure things out for themselves. And make sure your own feelings are safely and consistently free to flow.


July 2021

Moving Into The Unknown With Confidence, Or Lack Thereof

The beginning of the month starts with some powerful oppositions and square aspects which can feel tense. Stress is due to trying to move forward while still holding on to old patterns or relationships of the past.

Staying focused on a SINGULAR task or objective allows you to channel powerful energies into a worthwhile achievement. Otherwise, energies get wasted on pointless drama or distractions.

Old securities may start to crumble on July 4 when the Sun in Cancer squares Chiron, and that can feel upsetting; however, you can use painful issues as inspiration to release false securities, then establish new securities in your life that are more reliable.

Venus takes over the spotlight from Mars July 6 – 11 as Mercury squares Neptune Rx. People will either be actively developing their life passion, or lost in a FANTASY.

Make sure you’re on the right track because Mercury takes center stage July 11 while Jupiter and Neptune continue to retrograde in Pisces. You may either feel healthy optimism while accomplishing a grounded objective… or be caught in a GRAND DELUSION.

Around mid-month it will be easier (not so scary) to release the past and move into the unknown.

However, July 15 – 23 may feel unsettling unless you allow your perspective to be solidified or EVOLVE.

After the Sun positions itself in Leo on July 22 followed by an Aquarius Full Moon, you may feel a powerful shift in energy, allowing you to open up to others and expand into the future – as long as you’re confident in your own choices and perspective.

The challenge this month is to accept the UNIQUE paths of others without feeling threatened by differences in relationships. You can accept different choices of others, because they will either reinforce your own solid choices or expose cracks in your choices which need to evolve or mature. This is really the key to the whole month.

You know you’re making the right choices if you can stay steady and focused on your OWN tangible action which leads to tangible results and genuine self-pride.

By the 28th, you may be feeling more confident and capable OR feel locked in self-doubt and uncertainty. It all depends on how well you did on the test of your personal choices. You can continue to enjoy your solid, grounded choices, or make changes so that you CAN.



Conscious Choices and Life Changes

After the year 2020 uprooted foundations and outdated material securities, 2021 is the year for exciting change, especially as it might concern your career or relocating to a new home. Multiple new beginnings and new cycles present opportunities for major structural change.

Final choices made by the end of the year establishes new life experiences for the long term – so choose wisely. You might not know exactly what’s ahead but that’s okay. Dare to follow your true heart and enjoy exciting new opportunities that come your way.
