This week we complete the third quarter phase of the moon, drawing the Lion's Gate Leo New Moon from August to closure. In some ways a mission has concluded, and now you are being asked to reorient yourself towards the future. Mars stationed retrograde on Wednesday September 9th and will travel backwards until November 13th.
Mars is in his home sign of Aries until mid January of 2021, so the journey we are on now is a true initiation. The greatest aspect to come home to, is to truly witness how you utilize your sacred lifeforce. As Mars is in an intense square to Saturn in Capricorn, this is a time to be nimble, buoyant, and fluid. You are being guided to come home to your pure instinctual self, while healing the spaces and places where the patriarchy has waged war on your psyche. The astrology of these times is sobering and sophisticated. It is brutal, yet like the process of carbon becoming a diamond. The pressure is truly offering an opportunity to burn off the dross.
This Saturday, September 12th fortunate and expansive Jupiter turns direct after four months of retrograde. We've had plenty of time to analyze and reorient our plans. The cosmos will begin to offer more forward motion energy, as three months remain to find meaning with Jupiter's transit in structural Capricorn.
