My dear Universal Truth Seekers!
We start the week with the ongoing extremely tense aspect (T-square) among Mars in Leo, Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus! Talk about conflict among the most stubborn signs of the zodiac!
I had already talked about this alignment last week, but I’d like to touch upon it a bit further as it becomes EXACT, meaning at its peak energy, this week on July 1st-3rd. The ongoing tension (square aspect) between Saturn and Uranus since the beginning of 2021 and has shaken us up, as a collective, strongly in mid-February and this month on June 14th, will be joined by a personal/inner planet (Mars), making situations A LOT MORE PERSONAL for us.
The Saturn/Uranus square has been affecting us through socio-economic dramatic changes all through 2021, as these planets are generational ones and thus are of a more general nature, i.e. outer circumstances beyond our control dramatically changing our reality. I’ve already written an extensive article about this year-long aspect that you can check here.
The energy of Mars in Leo is one of loyalty, of consistency, of considering where it is that our heart is and giving ourselves fully to that path. This is enhanced as right at the beginning of the week, on Monday, June 28th, Mars in Leo will be sextiling (harmonious aspect) the North Node in Gemini, pointing us and energising us to our karmic path for the rest of 2021. And what kind of path is that? It is one of curiosity, focus on our immediate environment and discovery of things we’d never even imagined before in our own cities or even neighbourhoods. It is one of feeding our mind by learning new things. It is one of checking the facts before making assumptions.
Mars is standing across the sky from Saturn, and Saturn in and of itself is very stable energy. Saturn right now on the side of Aquarius that is also a fixed sign and fixed signs, just like it sounds, they like to hold steady, yet Aquarius is also an energy of change, progress, and leaping into the future. At moments that may seem erratic but they actually have their wisdom to it. So Saturn, as stabilising energy, invites us to look at things more rationally and consider our lives from a place of healthy detachment. Because it is from healthy detachment, we’re able to make our decisions much more consciously rather than instinctively.
Mars is our survival instinct that has been put into place from a very young age. But here, with the energy of Uranus in Taurus that can be so erratic and sudden, we’re being asked to act from our higher intellect (Aquarius) and not from our survival instinct that can cause serious damage when mixed with anger and frustration (Mars is the planet of war, drive and anger after all, and it’s strong in Leo). This is a head-over-heart decision time. This is about our long-term vision into our future and not about instant gratification (Leo is the sign of children, and we all know how much they love instant gratification).
Channel your inner warrior into a strategic one, one that is here for the long haul.
This tense T-square will be most challenging for Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio and Taurus.
During this week and until July 23rd, the nodal axis (mathematical points where eclipses happen) will be in conjunction with the Royal Fixed Stars: Aldebaran and Antares. This usually causes natural and man-made disasters. For example, here in Strasbourg – France, we already had a 3.9 magnitude earthquake last weekend caused by the construction (human activity) of a geothermal power station.
I had already sent an exclusive detailed article about this astrological alignment to my newsletter subscribers last week, so if you want to know more about it, join my mailing list, and you’ll get both last week’s and this week’s articles!
- On Friday, July 2nd, Mercury, already moving direct in Gemini, will be exactly at the eclipse point (19° of Gemini) where we had our solar eclipse on June 10th, and thus activating it. Think back to June 10th, when we had a potent solar eclipse taking place. That solar eclipse in the sign of Gemini was conjunct a retrograde Mercury. This suggests new ideas coming back around somehow, new thought processes that get another look that maybe have been in the ether of our lives.
But now we get a chance to integrate those energies, and where is it that we can think differently.
This also boosts us to implement these new ideas, but I wouldn’t recommend doing that this week as Mercury is still in its shadow phase and will start squaring Neptune again; our judgement is clouded. Holding off on signing new contracts and making big purchases is advised as well, especially with the abovementioned T-square going on.
Pisces, Sagittarius, Gemini and Virgo may suffer from disrupted sleep and anxiety.
- Despite all this intensity, we have Venus, the planet of love, beauty, harmony and abundance, moving into Leo: the sign of love, romance and celebrity! It entered this sign last Sunday and will remain there until July 22nd! So get ready to fire up and put your glam on!
This is a gorgeous transit for romantic encounters and will most support Leo, Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini, and Libra!
With this energy, we’re definitely entering weddings season! That’s why I decided to write for you a special article about choosing (or as we say in astrology “electing”) the best date to get married. It will be exclusively sent to my newsletter subscribers, so make sure to subscribe to get this perk!
Also, if you like it, I might consider adding electional astrology consultations (best dates to start a business, get married, sign a contract etc.) to my services. Let me know if it’s something that appeals to you by replying to my email.
Bear in mind that this is a general horoscope and is in no way your personal horoscope. If you’d like to know what your birth chart says about your personality and your life’s purpose or discover what the upcoming astrological alignments mean specifically for you, you can book a consultation with me through this link.
Wishing you a week filled with love and glamour!
