Mars entered Aries on June 28th and will be particularly dominant at the time of his stations. Just imagine Mars putting all his weight down in a specific zodiacal degree and hanging out there for about a week! Mars station’s retrograde on September 9th in 28°4’ Aries and station’s direct on 14 November in 15°14’ Aries. If you have planets in or around these degrees in the signs Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn consider yourself in the hot seat, you will definitely feel the power.

The idea of astrological ages is based on the phenomena known as the precession of the equinoxes, whereby due to the earth’s wobble as it spins on its axis, the vernal point moves slowly backward through the zodiac constellations at a rate of one degree every seventy two years, spending approximately 2,160 years in each zodiac sign and completing a whole cycle in 25,772 years. Many Western astrologers believe that we have reached an important juncture and are about to enter a new age, the Aquarian Age, however this idea is hotly contested1. When does the vernal point actually enter the stars of Aquarius? While theories abound as to when this will happen, no-one has come up with a definitive date

Saturn represents the view from the graveyard, and when Saturn, Mars and Pluto meet in Capricorn in 2020, it is time to ‘bring up the bodies’. We find ourselves in a time of disclosure and revelation, take a deep breath, the good news is, this is when collective awareness can begin to transform itself into consciousness.

MAY 3rd -7:00pm -EST- PATRICIA WALSH – Transiting Nodes – Sagittarius/ Gemini : The Divinity of Diversity – Out of One, Many!
The image that came when Patricia contemplated this transit – a Centaur shooting a single arrow straight up into the night sky, and many arrows falling back down to earth like shooting stars. The concentrated focus of the Archer is now open to new possibilities! As the lunar nodes transit into the mutable signs of Sagittarius (Synthesis and Singularity)/ Gemini (Diversity and Plurality) we can begin to shake off the dust of the crumbling structures around us and what limited us in the past (Capricorn) to rediscover what enthuses us and the diverse ways it might show itself now.
