For the week of June 22nd thru the 29th, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
As we approach the Full Moon next week, you will begin to see the fruition of many of the choices and decisions you have made in the past. You may be happy with some of the results, and may even feel rewarded for all of your hard work. However, it will also become evident what you don’t want to do any more, or that you feel is no longer serving your better interests. With Mars stationing retrograde this week, the urge is to make a hasty retreat. However, things are never quite that simple, and the need to take care of responsibilities and obligations cannot be avoided. But see if you can do so, without neglecting some very important areas of your life, and even if it is difficult, to try and establish some sort of balance between those things that you have to do, and the things that you would really rather be doing. One thing that the retrograde phase of Mars can show you over the next few months, is what direction you see yourself investing your valuable energy.
As Mars slows down to its station and enters its retrograde phase, many of the irritants of the previous week may begin to ease up, only to be replaced by others. It will soon become apparent where and how and what you are doing needs to be reassessed. You may even have some second thoughts, perhaps even about what you do for a living, or whom you are working for. Although the urge is to want to confront someone, probably the best advice at this time is to stay in the background and watch. At least for now. It may merely mean putting the focus on other things besides work, and taking some time to step back and reassess your goals. No rush though. You’ve got time to do so. For now, focus on those things that bring you joy and happiness, those people and things that make your heart sing. Replenishing these inner heart felt resources will give you all the strength you need to deal with even the most irritating stressors in our daily lives.
Avoid getting drawn into un-winnable battles or regrettable confrontations over the coming weekend. Nothing will be gained, no matter how pressured you may feel. Everyone has their own opinion on the matter. What this weekend is good for is problem solving and research. You can still use your voice to make a difference. Just realize that not everyone is going to agree with your point of view, and for some, it will be impossible to convince them otherwise. You will regain the tenor and power of your voice later on in the week, but for the mean time, a certain amount of diplomacy and reticence is being called for. It’s just wise to do so any way what with Mars stationing retrograde this week. But if you must get into a debate, make sure that you are forearmed with the correct information. Knowledge and truth can stand up to even the best of arguments.
We have entered your season, a time of year when Cancer becomes reacquainted with themselves, what their priorities are, and the things that are most meaningful to the. There are some things which you can put a price tag on, but then there are those that you simply cannot. As we approach the Full Moon on the 28th, it becomes evident who’s got your back and who doesn’t. Shining a light on the planet Saturn this week, you could be feeling like you’re having to climb Mt. Everest without a guide. Juggling work and family, while stepping over the cat, and carrying the groceries, and putting out a few fires out in the mean time can be exhausting. Just when you think you’ve got this, another fine obstacle pops up. If only you had a little help over here? It can feel a little disconcerting having to be the grown up, doing grown up stuff all the time. No worries though, you’re still going to knock it out of the park. Even if you have to do it all on your own.
Just when you think you’ve got it all done, you’ve done everything that you were supposed to do, another fine obstacle crops up in your path. There are times like these that you feel like you can’t win for losing. No worries, I’m pretty sure you have this one. No amount of challenges can squelch your fire, or keep you down for long. Nor can anyone’s weird passive aggressive attitude. If you can’t confront a situation head on, the best idea is to leave people to their own devices for now. Kind of like a feisty little tasmanian devil, the world may try to provoke you all they may over the next several weeks, but if you don’t take the bait, all that will be left is a little smoke wafting in the tailwinds. Patience is truly a virtue that will carry you over the next few months. Taking things slowly and not reacting to thoughtless actions can go a really long way, and save you a myriad of troubles.

Just realize that not everyone is going to agree with your point of view, and for some, it will be impossible to convince them otherwise. Try not to push yourself too much over the next few months while Mars is retrograde. You will be running on only half a tank, and pushing yourself beyond your limits, will drain you even further. Mars is compelling us all to step back and pause, and this will be especially helpful over the next few months, for there are bound to be quite a few twists and turns before all is said and done. This does not mean avoiding what you need to do. That stuff still needs to get done. The key is in doing what you need to do, but skillfully and mindful of your limits.
This week could prove to be a little frustrating at times. All you want is a little love and joy in your life, but things seem to keep getting in the way. One thing that will become quite apparent as the week wears on, are what are those things that you know you want more of in your life, and what you don’t want. Unfortunately, it could also be quite apparent as to what your obligations and responsibilities are, and these simply cannot be avoided right now. No matter how much you might like to. Whatever promises and choices you have made, are needing to be followed through with, and there’s no getting off quite yet. Therefore embrace the challenges that present themselves right now. You are being called up to the plate, and also being asked to shine next week. And no matter what obstacles you may need to climb over or challenges you may need to greet, you will handle all of these with grace and charm. The way you always do.
With your ruling planet, Mars, stationing this week, and some other minor irritants challenging you, you are all too ready to make your own hasty retreat. If only it were that simple. The Full Moon next week is reminding us all to tie up any loose ends, and take care of business first. However, there is something to be acknowledged with the retrograde station of Mars. In some way, you are being urged to bring your attention closer to home, or to some personal matter in your life. Mars retrograde could be used to take care of home improvement projects that you’ve been trying to get to any way. Don’t rush, but do direct the energy in a positive way. Sometimes when Mars stations, anger, resentment and irritation can arise. Before acting on it, try to figure out where the anger is coming from. Anger expressed at this time will only cause more problems in the end. However, exploring what it is that is not working out, is just as important as knowing what is. So don’t ignore it.
It could feel as if a lot of your resources are being squandered over the course of the week. Or that you are being distracted by guilty pleasures and things that you would much rather be doing. Much of this is probably okay, so long as you are mindful of any extravagance. Just avoid making any promises that you know you cannot keep. If you are feeling a little irritable this week, you can probably blame the retrograde station of Mars for that. During these phases of Mars resentment builds, and irritations are more difficult to ignore. However the best advice for the next few weeks is to think first, and breathe before speaking. Anger has a way of ricocheting or causing even more problems later on. Sagittarius is not known for keeping opinions to themselves, however being mindful of what you say, and how you say t, will be especially helpful right now. Look for ways to agree to disagree
The Full Moon the end of next week is in your sign, and is going to be shining a light on many of the decisions and choices that have brought you to the place where you now are. The important thing is to be in the present, neither regretting choices made, nor fearing what the future might be bringing. You are merely being asked to reassess where you are now in order to know which direction you will want to go in the future. You may even receive rewards for your efforts at this time. You could also feel somewhat defeated. The key is to not take either too much to heart, but to explore what are those things that have brought you the most inner rewards, and move in that direction. It may be that you won’t really be able to do anything about your current situation for a few months yet, so take your time. The important thing is that the choices that you are making are right for you.
Mars is slowing for its station into its retrograde phase this week in your sign of Aquarius. Mars is edgy and often irritable at best. But when it stations it seems to feel even more so. So if you feel any anger, resentment or something seething inside, step back and try to figure out where it is all coming from. And if you can do something about it now, do so. However, expressing anger during the retrograde phase which lasts for the next few months, will only come back to haunt you, and cause greater problems in the long run. Best advice is to retreat, gather your forces, information and energy, in order to do a full head on assault later on when you are better equipped. Handling conflict and confrontation skillfully will bring its own rewards, and may even free you up to explore larger more important concerns. Meanwhile it is always wise to remember that anger is the poison we swallow when we are trying to harm someone else.
It could feel as if much of your energy and resources are being squandered and wasted this week. Nonetheless it is not for nothing, even if things do get a little over the top. Just avoid making any promises that you know you cannot keep. Mars is stirring up trouble from behind the scenes for Pisces over the next few months. This could bring a few sleepless nights as you are revisiting the past, and reviewing past actions. It could also just be that too much is going on. Try to make some time for personal retreat: walking meditations; mind/body activities that help to ease any accumulated stress. The Full Moon this week is shining a light on your hopes and wishes. These have been shifting as you are compelled to ask yourself: what comes next? and Where am I going from here? You may not fully know the answer to these questions until after the next few months, but in the mean time, you are receiving some important messages about what that is all going to be looking like in the foreseeable future.
