Weekly Astrology ~ June 30, 2014 by Chris Flisher
Mercury stations direct on Tuesday, July 1st, but we are not out of the woods yet. Depending on where Mercury lands in your chart, you may find an intense period of miscommunication still exists. Any time a planet “stations” (changes direction) the intensity of that planet’s qualities increases during the time that it is stationary. Even though this officially signals the end of the retrograde, there is still the shadow period which remains for at least a few more weeks. Granted, the intensity is not as real as it is during the station, but it is still wise to be mindful of the shift. The summer holds much promise, though, so we simply have to get through this period, calmly and securely. It is always wise to take an extra precautionary step to back up your data and make necessary repairs. A general rule of thumb for any retrograde period is to use the prefix “re” for whatever task you encounter.
Later in the week we may feel the intensity of the Moon as it aligns with Mars and provides passion and aggression. With Independence Day celebrating the birth of the United States at the end of the week, we might feel especially emboldened as the Sun clicks in at 13 degrees Cancer, which is the same degree of the Grand Cardinal Cross we witnessed earlier this spring. We are on a much different path than ever before. No longer are we quick to respond with war and aggression. This departure points to a major new methodology for conflict resolution that doesn’t rely on weapons or anger, but rather on discussion and cause and effect initiatives. Nonetheless, this is a slow process, and we should not be dissuaded by that tempo, but rather encouraged knowing that nothing worth having ever comes too easily.
