Approaching Mars rx & Eclipse Season with Caution







(S hemisphere below)

The vibes this week are cautious, observant, and potentially scattered.

Pluto is sending energy forward now, which shifts our deepest soul work from “review” to “new material”.

Mars our planet of energy, passion, and warfare begins to slow down, preparing to dock in the retrograde station on October 30. This is going to be a very long and multifaceted retrograde, so the more you can simplify now the better the rest of your year will go. I recommend adding in a daily yoga practice to assist in staying connected in an easeful way in your body.

You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers. Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting – over and over announcing your place in the family of things.

Monday October 10

The week opens with some pressure as the Aries Moon squares Pluto who’s extra potent and influential at his station direct degree. We feel some inflammation of power as Mars is slowing down towards his own retrograde. Mercury back into Libra greases the wheels with diplomacy which we need with the rest of the rough edges right now.

Tuesday October 11

The pressure shifts today from fire into earth as the Taurus Moon activates the Saturn Uranus square we are subject to all month. Ye old struggle between the rulers and the ruled is manifest in many ways on the planet right now.

Mars squares Neptune in a mutual application as Mercury opposite Jupiter, also in a mutual application. There are clear alliances and antagonists in the sky right now. Sun trine Saturn is helpful for graceful stability against so much building force.

Wednesday October 12

It’s a good day to tend to your body as the Taurus Moon on fixed star Algol sextiles Neptune, trine Pluto. Self care can achieve more today than usual.

Thursday October 13

Outta the body and into the mind and language; the mind’s favorite tool. The Gemini Moon trines Mercury, and sextiles Jupiter, which is simply a lot of fun.

Venus trine Mars trine Saturn in air is a boon to all relationships that are dynamic and alive to each other. For those that aren’t there may be an opportunity to do some clearing of static and sync in a productive way.

Friday October 14

Excessive mental chatter is possible today as the waning Gemini Moon joins an agitated Mars, though they are both soothed by the Sun and Venus in Libra, and stabilized by Saturn in Aquarius. It’s a social day but one that requires some work to stay grounded and in your own lane.

Saturday October 15

The tide of feelings comes in today as the Cancer Moon squares Jupiter and Mercury. These are really big emotions that can be accessed for happiness or sadness or a mix.

Mars trines Saturn and the Sun which is another bit of medicine for our nervous systems as we approach the event horizon of this Mars Rx, in Mercury’s sign.

Sunday October 16

Today the emo tide is fully in, as the Cancer Moon squares Mercury, sextiles Uranus, and trines the South Node. Old memories and nostalgia may arise like bubbles today, asking to be felt and remembered.

Mars reaches his station degree at 24 Gemini today, less than two weeks out from the start of his/our heroes journey. There’s no rush, no need to act frantically about anything, it’s take to take it as easy as you can.

We arrive today at Full Moon in Aries cj Chiron. Aries knows more than any other archetype that we live in a predator and prey reality here and we need to have our wits about us. The Moon’s contact with Chiron leaves no confusion about what our themes are: healing and growth in the places we have been most wounded. This is where become the wisest healers but it must start with our own healing.

As we stand at the brink of world war, the collective is facing its own deepest wounds. We are not separate here, and we must evolve together.

The polarity point of Aries is Libra so the lesson we need to learn is sourcing peace inside each of our hearts and soul, as a way to de escalate what’s happening outside of ourselves.
