If you find yourself triggered beyond what would be a normal response level, it is your clue that you are working your way through a major karmic replay. Mars transits the emotional sign of Cancer to July 1. This transit reactivates subconscious memories and unresolved feelings from this life and from past lives, too. Teaming up on the Mars initiative, Mercury is also travelling through Cancer (to June 26). Agent Mercury puts the spotlight on a specific person or circumstance.
What is so notable about this Mars/Mercury action is that the duo will form critical alignments with Neptune, Saturn, and Pluto between Thursday and next Wednesday. Neptune is the planet of potential and hidden wealth; it’s also the collective tuning fork. Saturn is the architect of reality (i.e. that which dictates, limits, or builds), and the karmic timekeeper (generator of consequences or reward). Saturn brings the past to its harvest or end. Pluto, the planet of the soul, correlates to the unstoppable force of evolution—to the process of core, fundamental, and lasting change.
This week’s transits mark a critical reset point for our personal lives and the social, economic, and political reality of the day. They’re also a forerunner for the momentous Capricorn alignment in 2020.
Father’s Day marks the second of three pivotal Jupiter/Neptune alignments spanning January through September. A turn-the-corner transit, it’s when potentials are greatly heightened. Monday delivers a full moon in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s sign. Uranus adds more life and synchronicity to that which is already on brew. Prior to the full moon, the stars are on a building and finishing-off trajectory. Tuesday/Wednesday, they are at work on the newly developing or revised format.
March 20 - April 20
Nothing is small or insignificant in terms of the change that is underway, or the result or achievement that it will produce. While there is still more work to do, challenges to face, and time to put in, Mars, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto position you at the threshold of a non-negotiable, “no turning back” moment. Friday through next Wednesday seals the deal, making it official.
April 20 - May 21
Over this next week, someone or something can have a powerful influence, perhaps even a profound effect on you. The transits will support you or force you to get serious about your next steps. There is no choice but to sign up for it in some concrete, accountable, and committed way. Father’s Day can put the unfinished or unreconciled into play in some significant way.
May 21 - June 21
Father’s Day weekend can be a big deal. Beyond the emotions it stirs up, the transits underscore how important time is, how little of it is left, or how much more there is to work with or get through. Encompassing Monday’s full moon, next week moves you through the paces of a critical or difficult process or circumstance and prompts a shift in perspective.
June 21 - July 22
The past may be catching up with you or it may be your springboard. Likely, it is a mix of both. Mercury and Mars in Cancer dial up the issues, emotions, and challenges. Until Father’s Day, you’ll face significant resistance, a formidable block, a cement wall or end of the road. Monday onward can fast-track a completely altered reality.
July 22 - August 23
Where there is a will (or a willing heart), there is a way. Keep at it, stick it out, and you’ll create a substantial impact or result. The next few days also provide an opportunity to convey the message, see with new eyes, turn it around, and/or move it to higher ground. Monday/Tuesday brings it to a head. Wednesday/Thursday resurrects or revamps it.
August 23 - September 23
Is the struggle worth it? This next week jettisons you past a significant roadblock and sets you up for a major breakthrough. The stars dictate a major shift of priorities. Mercury and Mars in Cancer put you in touch with what or who is most important, and what will make the strongest impact. You will find the help and support you need.
September 23 - October 23
Encompassing Father’s Day and a full moon, next week takes you through an important revisit. Are you getting your needs met out of your career, your status quo, or the time you spend? Mars and Mercury prioritize an official wrap-up, end of term, or contract renewal. Wednesday begins a next phase or a major turnaround.
October 23 - November 22
There is no way around the pressure or the work, but keep focused on the goal or the results you want to achieve. Beyond a weekend to pay your respects to Dad or a father figure, Mars and Mercury bring you to an important conclusion, completion, or deadline. Immediate and long-term priorities are intertwined. With a full moon Monday through Wednesday, the big push is on.
November 22 - December 21
Keeping hands-on is required through the weekend. Extra nurturing, support, or safeguards are wise. A gentle yet firm approach is the right way to play it. Monday, the full moon in Sagittarius frees you up or puts a lot more into play. Tuesday/Wednesday calls for a cut to the chase, a severing of ties, a major regroup, or a complete overhaul.
December 21 - January 20
Emotions and/or added pressure is building through the weekend. Father’s Day can bring a release or reprieve. If you hit stop, it’s not for long. Hitting the ground running, full-moon Monday puts opportunity on go, perhaps unexpectedly. Tuesday, you’ll wrestle with it or them. Wednesday/Thursday, there’s a new battle or next phase to contend with.
January 20 - February 18
If and when you run up against it, see it as opportunity in disguise. Off and on through mid next week, Mercury, Mars, Saturn, and Pluto are adversaries. There’s hard work and pressure to contend with, but it’ll pave the way to significant gain and improvement. What a difference a day—or a singular moment—can make.
February 18 - March 20
Encompassing Father’s Day and a lot more, now through next week can be an emotional roller coaster. Whether long in the works or abrupt, there’s no time to spare between the past and the next, between an ending or completion and the change this brings. Monday through Thursday, you’ll need to push harder or fight your way through it.
