Your Celestial Compass for June 29-July 6-12, 2020
Going Forward with Mercury Direct and the Fourth Quarter Moon
Even though the Moon has peaked with the lunar eclipse on July 5 it’s still going full force as all eclipses have effects before and after their exact times. Generally a lunar eclipse can be expected to be active for at least two-to-three weeks following its occurrence and in this instance, the three eclipses in a row we’ve just had is a marker of influence for the next several months. In the eclipse chart it conjuncts Saturn in Capricorn that is a measurement of how it affects specific areas of life. Some areas of influence are nations throughout the world and more so if the nation is the same or opposite sign as is so with the United States that’s Cancerian. All people and places with strong Capricorn and Cancer in their charts are impacted and also the signs at 90 degree angles which are Aries and Libra. Government leaders, and corporations that also have governing bodies are impacted which has been ongoing and now more concentrated. Notice where you have these signs in your personal birth chart to learn more specifically how they impact you.
Mercury on Wednesday forms a hard angle to Mars and that Mercury is stationary/retrograde produces counter energy that is about contrary and irritating information. There’s greater restlessness where many will feel compelled to make decisions as a way of striving for greater peace and to lessen stress. This angle can be an irritant to the status quo. It’s best not to be compulsive or take actions that can’t be reversed and it’s also best to be as objective as possible.
A mystical and creative ray is on Thursday when the Pisces Moon trines the Sun, conjuncts Neptune and throughout the day continues to form pleasant planet alignments within the solar system. This is nice for personal time and benefits artisans to be more creative.
Sunday, July 12 brings the Fourth Quarter Moon in Aries that prods you to make choices based on how you feel about yourself and what you want to achieve. This is a week-long vibration lasting until the next New Moon in Cancer on July 20 and can help you to move toward a turning point and more positive direction. Awareness of individuality is triggered.
And, also on July 12 Mercury turns direct from its previous three week retrograde motion. In Gemini which is a strong positive placement you can feel clearer and more easily see future vistas.

In Review (Looking back)
June 29-July 5, 2020
We’re moving headlong into another eclipse peaking Sunday, July 5 when the Moon is full at 12:44 AM ET in Capricorn countering the recent solar eclipse in Cancer on June 21. These are three eclipses in a row happening two weeks apart with this one ushered along by Mars in Aries squaring it and Mercury retrograde closely involved. This combination of planets with the Sun is a red hot energy that fuels already sensitive areas so plan accordingly by finding time to go into repose to think before you act and weigh decisions wisely. Mars can cause you to feel rushed when maybe there’s time to consider ideas and consequences before you dive into what potentially could be regretted later.
June 30 brings great energy due to the Sun and Mercury conjunct and Jupiter conjunct Pluto. There can be something profound in the air and it stirs life in a major way.
On the day of the eclipse, the Moon will conjunct Jupiter and Pluto that’s a very strong alignment and one that could greatly benefit you if you have solid plans, or there could something that goes awry if you’re disorganized and matters are not well thought out relating to the outcome you want to unfold. The energy is big, to say the least, rather like cautioning to be aware or careful of what you wish for.
Key words for the week:
Direction; forward; progressive; creative; dreamy; decision
Affirmation for the week:
(I compose these affirmations based on current planet, luminary and star placements in the heavens.)
“I am stronger and make choices for a positive life direction.”
The Sun is challenging while the lunar tide brings forth your shadow self.
Notes for applying details and information: Major aspects are angles from one planet to another called conjunction, sextile, square, trine, and opposition that each has its own meaning. These, combined with the individual meanings of the planets create unique interpretations.
