Astro Podcast – 3 Astro Highlights of the week: June 22 – June 28

Hi! I hope you are well and healthy. Here are the 3 Astro Highlights of the week from of June 22 to June 28.

First Astro Highlight.

Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

The first Astro Highlight of the week is on Monday, June 22, when the Neptune retrograde in Pisces at 20°57′ until November 28, 2020, at 18°09′ of Pisces, making this the 6th planet in retrograde. Neptune rules self-sacrifice, victimization, false accusation, scandal, and slander. Neptune retrograde makes us see the truth of our reality and is often quite painful, especially if you have used drugs, alcohol, gambling, or porn to escape.

When Neptune retrogrades, the veil of illusions and fantasies come down and we are forced to face our fears and anxieties. The further you are from your truth, the bigger the shock. Neptune retrograde can show the source of the pain from which you seek to escape. You may then feel humiliated, betrayed, scared, anxious, or guilty. Neptune retrograde is the ideal time for spiritual self-development. Tools that are helpful during this period are: self-help books, counseling meditation, Yoga, Tarot, astrology, swimming, and a healthy diet.

Second Astro Highlight.

The second Astro Highlight is on Thursday, June 25, 2020,  when Venus goes direct at 5 degress of Gemini. Problems with love and money may become unfrozen. We move out of miscommunications to communicating in a clear and concise matter. In 2 weeks, you may resume your beauty regimes and buying clothes and luxury items.

Third Astro Highlight.

Mars in Aries

The third Astro Highlight of the week is on Sunday, June 28, when Mars enters Aries. Mars, the planet of energy and drive, has come home to the sign it rules, Aries. Mars will remain in Aries until January 2021. The next 6 months will be filled with action and stimulation. You will have a lot of desire and passion to initiative in your love life, passion projects, and other areas of your life. For example, if Mars in Aries is transiting your 5th house, you want to express yourself creatively, start a new romanace or go on dates, if single. If attached,  insert more more passion into your relationship.

Mars in Aries is about the desire to take physical chances, high energy drive, being brave and bold, thriving on obstacles and challenges and quick to take the initiative. However, weaknesses seen in Mars in Aries are aggressive, bad-tempered, headstrong, can’t take orders; rash and impetuous; careless and accident-prone; prone to premature burn-out; can’t finish things, and overly competitive. The area of your life described by the house or houses Aries occupies is where you can take action in:

  • fight for yourself or someone else
  • pursue a passion project/hobby
  • launch your project/job search/exercise regime

For example, if you have Aries in the first house of your natal chart, you can now take action into a good work out routine to improve your physical body and health.

I hope this information is helpful and useful. Have an excellent week!

The first Astro Highlight of the week is on Monday, June 15, 2020, when the moon is in Aries. Aries is the leader of the pack and is always the first in line to get things going. Aries is the initiator.

It is a good day to start a new project, play sports or exercise, and for solving problems. Dental visits are not recommended on this day.

Second Astro Highlight.

Mercury Retrograde

The second Astro Highlight is on June 18, 2020, when Mercury starts retrograding in Cancer, making it the fifth planet retrograding. But don’t panic. We have survive the pandemic, murder hornets, and other things so we most certainly can survive 5 planets retrograding. The retrogrades are all about reviewing and changing the obsolete. 

But the way to use this energy for your benefit is by: reviewing, reconnecting, realigning, reorganize, and refocus on the areas of life that need your attention. More on Mercury Retrograde, what to do during Mercury Retrograde, and what not to do during Mercury Retrograde, on the blog.

Third Astro Highlight.

Solar Eclipse in Cancer

The third Astro Highlight of the week is on June 21, 2020, when there is a New Moon in Cancer, solar eclipse at 0 degrees.  A solar eclipse is just like a regular new moon. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun. This is the great time to make a fresh start. Search for new and inventive ways to make progress in your behaviors and habits. 

Also, this eclipse comes with Saturn which means it comes with a lot of responsibilities versus family life. Other areas that are brought to light are: emotional security, home, mother, wounds, and roots. This is not a good time to do intentions and rituals since the energy is strong, forceful, and conflicting. Also, this energy can last up to 6 months.

I hope this information is helpful and useful. Have an excellent week!
