As if we need anymore dark news…the public massacre in California yesterday is yet another in what feels like an endless string, and yet it should at least be noted astrologically that we are watching a series of challenging aspects form in the sky. The Saturn/Neptune square being the first, but now the planet Mars is moving into a square with Pluto and an opposition to Uranus, both of which involve the returning closeness of Pluto/Uranus.
It’s probably important that we catch any kind of reactionary tendencies in ourselves over the next few days. Mars might have the tendency to heighten or intensify the drama of a situation too quickly, or the actions might happen so fast and rapidly that our vision of the situation is blurred or inaccurate. We should also be careful of forceful or opinionated people generally speaking, and we should avoid being too strong or forceful ourselves. It’s not the transit I’ve wanted to spend anytime with in the past week because it’s one of those more ominous looking transits that too often only incites fear when overly discussed. Nonetheless, I hope these simple thoughts aid in any intensity that comes through in the next week. Remember..even strong and fast things can be calmed and worked through with greater patience if we stop and return to our center.
In other news, our kickstarter is at $15,478 raised toward our next stretch goal of $17,500. With 28 days to go, almost a full moon cycle, our next stretch goal will contribute to two projects. One will be the development of my professional library of resource books, which will be of special help to me as I work toward the writing of a new book in the next couple of years. Two will be the purchase of an amateur telescope, with the intention of bringing local astrology students into the country during the summer months for a more interactive and experiential class on the zodiac and planets. Each goal we set also takes into account the deduction of taxes and the percentage that kickstarter takes from the money we fund raise. If you haven’t already, please donate and consider purchasing yourself or someone you love a year ahead or birth chart reading! We also have great deals on recorded astrology lessons, and online courses. Help us spread the word!
