This will be the summer of simmer! Mars retrograde will dominate the period lasting 2 months until Aug 28. If Mars wasn’t enough to contend with there are also not two, but three eclipses this season. The first 20º Cancer solar eclipse occurs on Jul 12 . This one is not too upsetting as it falls on good twin Castor the horse whisperer. It does give the opportunity for detoxing since it falls opposite Pluto making it a Hades Moon. The darkness is balanced by the grand earth trine seen below which could bring inventions that are ecological. Mother nature should be supported by this healing solar eclipse.
We have another Mercury Retrograde from Jul 26 to Aug 19 between 11º and 23º Leo. It will travel mostly through the bears; Ursa Major, the protective mother bear and her baby bear Ursa Minor. Issues of motherhood and future generations will be addressed. The energy is primal, spontaneous and uncensored. This does not mean this decan is not spiritual, it’s just that it doesn’t like bowing down to a Guru, or following established paths to enlightenment. It is a pioneering position which will always prefer to debate down avenues that are less traveled. There are a good few juicy trines over the summer, these will help buffer some of the edginess of the eclipse season.
