Buckle up. Mars started his Retrograde cycle in fun-loving Sagittarius on April 17. At 8:51 AM CDT Friday morning he backs into Scorpio, a sign he co-rules with dangerous Pluto.
Mars will stay in Scorpio until August 2 and is going to be a big problem while Rx. In world events the level of violence and destruction will elevate. Scorpio rules mass calamities and death. You’ll be ok, but something may die in your life during the next few months: a source of income, love, support, or an enemy—it all depends on how Mars is connected to the other planets in your chart.
Bottom line: Be very careful with anything or anyone dangerous while Mars is Rx in Scorpio until June 29. Use this energy by cleaning and clearing away old debts and situations that get in your way.
In short: take out the trash and get focused on what you want to do after Mars goes direct. You will then have Mars aiding your wishes in July as he finishes his run in powerful Scorpio. Not much else in the Skywatch today.
Green lights are up as the Moon sextiles Saturn at 10:32 AM. A moment of confusion appears at 1:44 PM as the Moon squares trickster Mercury. Clear skies follow for the rest of the day and night.
Be careful. The Moon is Void of Course from last night until she enters Aquarius at 9:27 AM CDT.
The big event in the Skywatch goes off at 7:28 AM Thursday morning as expansive Jupiter squares conservative Saturn. This square has been hanging out since late March and it’s hard to quantify the effects since Jupiter is also trine Pluto. However, we’ll be glad to see this one disappear, especially if you have had legal battles of late—Jupiter’s domain.
The rest of the Skywatch today is pleasant as the Moon sextiles Mars Retrograde at 10:04 AM, and then trines Venus at 3 PM, followed by a trine to the Sun at 8:58 PM. Stick to routine and you’ll enjoy the trines and be happy to see the square in your rear view mirror.
As times change.
Don’t take any chances today and tomorrow. Jupiter lines up in a challenging square to Saturn Thursday morning—this is a disturbance in the Force. And it’s a sign of bad timing and some folks making poor decisions that don’t solve the problem.
Stick to routine today, especially with Mars still Retrograde. The Moon in Capricorn meets intense Pluto in the heavens at 9:21 AM CDT and then sails out into calm seas until she squares rebellious Uranus at 8:11 PM. Luna turns Void of Course a minute later until tomorrow morning.
Be safe and cool Wednesday night.
Love vs. War. I can’t decide how to color the major event in the Skywatch on Tuesday.
Venus lines up opposite to Mars Retrograde at 9:38 PM CDT Tuesday evening. There’s nothing else to report as the Moon enters careful Capricorn early this morning and sails out into calm seas until she sextiles Neptune at 11:27 PM Tuesday night.
I suspect you’ll see givers and takers today. But not necessarily from those whom you might expect due to Mars Rx.
The range of reactions is from hot sex to domestic violence. As you know, the stars impel but they don’t compel.
Be cool and safe Tuesday night.
As times change.
Jump in. The Skywatch is good for work or play Monday morning. Clever Mercury has returned to direct motion which helps speed up matters that have been delayed of late.
The kiss of the day appears at 10:37 AM CDT when the Moon in optimistic Sagittarius trines friendly Uranus. Caution lights kick on a minute later as Luna turns Void of Course until tomorrow morning.
Stick to routine while the Moon is V/C and hold off on finalizing matters.
Let times change.
Sunday’s Skywatch is partly cloudy. The Sun opposes impatient Mars Rx at 6:17 AM Sunday morning .
Mercury turns direct in motion at 8:20 AM and that’s the kiss of the day. But the Moon squares dreamy Neptune at 1:21 PM, and then squares Jupiter at 4:31 PM, and then meets grumpy Saturn at 5:20 PM.
None of this is very difficult, but can bring a new set of conditions with Mercury back again in direct motion. Quiet hours return a few minutes after Luna leaves her conjunction with Saturn.
As times change.
