Welcome to Astrology Update!
Recently I came upon a passage about the symbolic meaning of the slave collar in pre-Christian Anglo-Saxon times. The metal band signified that the slave’s life force no longer flowed freely in his body; once he was enslaved his vitality was controlled by his owner.
It made me ponder on how many of us are still enslaved by our own thinking, not even realizing that there is another way of seeing things. There is a supportive life force all around us, waiting to flow through us at every moment.
Feeling separate and stressed reminds us that we’ve shackled ourselves to a one-dimensional way of perceiving things. Through the study of astrology we begin to understand that we are part of an extensive web of connectivity which wishes to reverberate at the highest octave of consciousness at every given moment.
With Mars retrograde until the end of June, we have a powerful opportunity to observe our actions and to see where our energies go. This month we can expect to revisit whatever we were dealing with between February 19 and March 3. It’s our opportunity to reflect on it and to adjust our mindset. By July we’ll be completing this cycle, having gained in wisdom.
Power periods this month: June 4-5 and 17-20:
New Moon at 14 degrees of Gemini (on June 4-5, depending on your time zone): Avoid being pulled in more than one direction as you set your intentions for the month. Being flexible will enable your dreams to take shape.
The build-up to the Full Moon at 29 degrees of Sagittarius on June 20 could be intense. Take challenges in your stride. Allow yourself to engage with others during this time in a way that you can agree to disagree. The world is large enough for everyone’s opinions!
For those of you born March 1-6, June 1-6, September 1-7, and December 1-7, there is so much going on in your lives right now! Please don’t hesitate to call me to set up an appointment in person or over the phone.
May the Sun shine upon you,
