Astronomically speaking, we’ve had a very interesting parade of planets through the southern skies of late, highlighting these short night. Regulus, the heart of the Lion will be lost in the light of the fading Sun very shortly after sunset. Few may catch it. But moving east, Mars and Saturn are in the constellations Virgo and Libra (the signs of Libra and Scorpio). Above them is the star Arcturus, while to their east, Antares, the heart of the Scorpion glows with a reddish hue.
It is quite the little parade of night lights, but you may have to wait for the glow of the Full Moon to subside for a few days in order to get a really good look at it. Remember to go right after sunset to look, to see if you can spot the the Lion’s heart before it sinks into the west for another year.
Astrologically speaking, we have a powerhouse of an aspect coming up before the next Moon Mail, as both Saturn and Uranus pivot in the heavens, Saturn turning to move ‘forward’ through the night sky, while Uranus pivots to go retrograde. While we have planets pivoting fairly often, it’s unusual to have them turning AS they make a hard aspect to each other within twenty-four hours. Conditions that have been pressurized of late may come roaring to the surface and bust a few gaskets. Saturn is thought to be the planet of structure, while Uranus is the planet of the structure breaker. They will ‘make their move’ in just a little over 24 hours from each other, in the later part of the day on the 20th and 21st of July. Check your charts for sixteen and a half degrees of either Scorpio (Saturn) or Aries (Uranus) for the exact alignments, but planets in any sign of the zodiac around this number will be impacted to some degree.
The planetary pressure is growing stronger. How has that been manifesting in YOUR life?
