If you’ve been confused, as in under the weather, it soon clears up; eclipses bring dramatic vision and change and you get that this month – in your career. July 5, and the days surrounding it. July will be something else. You’re probably already thinking, what is going on? Remember, we’re still under Mercury Retrograde (June 18 to July 12) and it’s happening in your fourth house of home and early family, so exercise your patience with family members. Plus there is a worldwide pandemic and EIGHT other retrogrades affecting the rest of your chart, the most ever, at the same time. Very little can go forward in life with so many planets and asteroids going backwards. Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, Chiron, Ceres, and Pallas make up the sum total of nine.
First, you’re still going through the solar eclipse new Moon in Cancer from Sunday, June 21: in your fourth house of property and family. New beginnings on the home front and with family are necessary now, with first a disruption before there can be a new beginning. You may decide on a totally fresh direction, which is wise. What do you want that direction to be in the next several weeks? Because a new one is coming.
The U.S.A. cannot help but be, having Cancer Sun with Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter also in Cancer, powerfully affected by this eclipse.
For you, Aries – look at your fourth house (Cancer on the outside of your chart, especially if you are Aries rising), ruling your childhood home, property, and parents in general. This, no doubt, will have been affected already, but after June 21 will be the rising wave, the culmination, the earthquake. In this most personal area, there will be an ending and a beginning, strongly felt, with no going back.
The solar eclipse new moon (equals new beginning) of June 21 stretches several weeks of its power. Meaning, it is not necessarily on June 21 that you experience it. It affects you any time between June 21 and June 29.
The U.S.A. cannot help but be, as Cancer Sun with Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter also in Cancer, powerfully affected by this eclipse. For everyone, needless to say, surgical operations are a big NO-NO during the eclipse, and during the whole month of Cancer, on areas ruled by Cancer: stomach, breasts, and ovaries. This includes cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, breast alteration, etc. This practice was first attributed to Hippocrates, the grandfather of modern medicine. Physicians still have to take the Hippocratic Oath. It is deadly serious.
The only other time to watch out for is two weeks later, July 5 and the days surrounding, with the lunar eclipse full Moon in Capricorn. At this time, it is advisable not to have surgery, particularly on areas ruled by Capricorn: bones and teeth. Otherwise, there can be those “complications.”
Coronaviris and nine retrogrades. Sounds like nature agreeing, to keep us going slow as we need to go slow. The virus goes on as long as many of these retrogrades – and longer. Buckle your belt, my sweetheart. Buckle your belt.
But just see what gorgeous planets you’re hosting in your fourth personal house!
Sharp-thinking Mercury (retrograde until July 12)
A new silvery Moon on Monday, July 20
You’ll be feeling better in no time, dear Aries, don’t you fret. This eclipse opposes Pluto retrograde in your tenth career house, so there will be a professional change due to a new opportunity. Eliminate the unnecessary in your work for the happiest outcome. You might find, for example, that you’re doing too much, and better results come from you doing less!
And what all does your fourth house rule?
Your fourth house, traditionally ruled by survivalist Cancer, rules:
Early family (parents, siblings, grandparents, and the like)
Beginnings and endings
Your personal life
Your early life through childhood
Land and agriculture
Security and protection
Ancient and deep-seated bonds between you and others
There’s extra emphasis on your home right now, and early family members are so much more in the picture than usual.
You’ve been working your darnednest – and now it is time to take a break. And then you breathe a whole lot easier…
You might feel the need to resist my sensible astrological advice – you’ve been trying awfully hard with a great many high expectations – so in case you do, here’s a story for you for this month. It’s an old story, one you might have heard before…
A man found a cocoon of a butterfly, with a very small opening in it. For several hours, he sat and watched as a butterfly struggled to force her body through the tiny hole. Then she seemed to stop making any progress.
He peered into the hole and saw that the butterfly appeared as if she had gotten as far as she could – she could go no further. Wanting to help, the man took a pair of scissors and gently snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.
The butterfly emerged immediately and easily. But, to his surprise, the man saw that she had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.
The man expected the wings to expand to support the body, but that did not happen. The butterfly was never able to fly; in fact, the butterfly spent the rest of her short life crawling around with shriveled wings and a swollen body before she died.
What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the small opening of the cocoon was nature’s way of forcing fluid from her body into her wings.
This way, the butterfly would be ready for flight once she achieved freedom from the cocoon.
If you knew that you would become a butterfly at the right time, would your struggle be more meaningful? An excess of impatience can encourage you to take shortcuts, to avoid necessarily painful learning experiences.
Aries, sign of the charging-ahead ram, is often famous for her / his impatience.
If you feel held back by a cocoon, stop looking for the scissors and instead look at this time as the perfect opportunity to grow and to change!
Pluto’s transit through your tenth house is your year of graduation. You have learned something valuable about your life path – and possibly your career – at last.
You are reaching your own recognition phase. It will be a welcome relief. You can concentrate on what you want to concentrate on.
Let this time be easy, dear Aries – which may be the hardest thing for you to do – but this is what July needs to be. You will see!
Your energy and health improve, you are so much less burdened in all that you have to do, and a brilliant plan you’ve been hatching – possibly with a friend – is born.
You’ll also hear from a person in your professional circle who has been difficult to pin down. He or she has been absent in some way, and it has been somewhat infuriating.
Aries, for all the bravery and confidence, is always scared that someone doesn’t like them. This is the secret chink in your armor.
Mars natives are warriors. You have passion – and some of it is for war. You are a warrior!
You can fight anything you want. Let it be for a good cause – you’ll always feel better.
Love your Mars. Love yourself.
Now…the only remaining good tip on this — choose your battles wisely. From parents to associates, choose your battles.
It’s a tough time astrologically – and due to the pandemic – for everyone right now.
If things are raining down in your home, you soon see bright rainbows.
