Mars into Scorpio tonight

TODAY! Finally.

Mars (planet of drive, courage, ambition and creativity) is moving out of Libra and into Scorpio tonight at 7:25pm Pacific. This is a major development. Mars has been stuck in Libra since last December, asking us to think strategically and to work with others. These are admirable qualities of course, but the energy of Mars wants to plunge ahead. He doesn't like to be tactful and charming, so we've all felt a little stifled the last several months. This all changes tonight.

Mars in Scorpio is intensely creative, transformative, and of course sexual. This is a very primal sky event. Scorpio is ruled by Mars, and so this is a nice placement for the fiery planet. Aries and Scorpio people will feel this shift the strongest - it's time for ACTION. All of us will notice the forward motion in our lives, and money and projects will begin to really flow again!

"Fatherland" by Alkemik

Here is a blurb from Cosmic Intelligence Agency:

Mars will soon feel better, stronger, faster and more virile! For all of us this translates to a surge in energy, a better focus and a greater and much deeper urge to go for it!. After what seemed like the longest stretch, Mars after the indecisions and extremes of Libra finally moves on and takes control of his own power and drive.  Yet we hope his long sentence in Libra has helped us to learn patience, diplomacy and at least some better manners. There is a reason for all our planetary transits, they keep us in check, teach and guide and help us to evolve toward better people and more fulfilled human beings, if indeed we heed the cosmic messages. Read about the transit that was Mars in Libra, to know what you’ve supposed to have integrated! And keep that in mind as you read on.
So watch out for what might be coming your way, or rising up from deep within. Anything pent up, will now get the guts to be released, as Mars acts instinctively in Scorpio to get things done. Mars represents our fight of flight instinct. Mars’ energy is sudden and impulsive, energetic and physical, Scorpio’s is intense and passionate and craves intimacy and trust. We begin to seek experiences that require trust, courage and confidence, accentuated by Jupiter now in Leo. Our inner warrior,  now becomes super impulsive, deeply emotional and sensitive and even finds the courage to confront what is dark and fearful. In Scorpio’s domain Mars is  encouraged to penetrate and probe, solve mysteries and uncover truths. It’s like a detective given a mission, who can’t stop  or rest until the job is done and all has been worked out, uncovered. Any lurking doubts about your motivations will rise like monsters to confront you. The hero within must confront his demons too, get them out of the way and sorted, that’s Scorpios’ job, before moving onto the freedom and adventure and truth of Sagittarius.
How will you release the creative force of Mars in Scorpio? Lots of potent potential lies within this combination, just remember it is better to make love, not War and create, not destroy, and it’s up to you if you decide to transform yourself, your drive and how you act or react on things. Move towards eliminating that which is no longer necessary in your life and in You!  Scorpio does highlight those we are most intimate or involved with or that which we are most passionate about, like a divine calling,  so empower yourself with positive passion and heat things your desire,  for Love and passion , Not war.

Full Moon in Capricorn

Today is a Full Super Moon in Capricorn. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, as is Saturday, so the qualities of this full moon are very much apparent.
Saturn rules discipline, limitation, achievement, persistence, career - but mostly Responsibility. These are the issues that might come up today.

The "Super Moon" side of things just means these issues might be really in your face. No avoiding them anymore. We can also experience new clarity about our feelings and emotions. Saturn makes things crystal clear.

How far have you come since January when the Sun was in Capricorn? What have you achieved over the last six months? A Full Moon brings things to fruition, and Saturn means you will "Reap what you have Sown". Today you are experiencing the harvest of your endeavors.

Also, not a good day to confront authority figures, and ventures might be hard to get off the ground. Capricorn is about pushing through ANY obstacle, so don't be discouraged! Keep chugging away and you'll break through.

Remember the Goat can be merry too, so no harm in having some fun :)


Galactic Center post from Cosmic Intelligence-Agency

The Moon aligns with the Galactic centre opposite Mercury. Big thoughts, big ideas, big reasons to go beyond the norm, the everyday and local space to align with the great beyond, the bigger picture, the meaning and purpose of all there is, highlighting the polarity of opposites, Gemini and Sagittarius.
The Galactic Centre is the rotational centre of our Milky Way, (@28degrees Sagittarius) our galaxy and remember Mercury is still in shadow zone keeping us in the everyday, the mundane when all we really want is to able to fly free, liberated and explore the great beyond. Take a journey to untangle from the everyday reality if you can today, your mind will be grateful, it needs a holiday and some cosmic coaching.
Recap the Mercury retrograde cycle here, which finishes next week 16th July....

"Why I Will NOT See The New Jimi Hendrix Biopic, and I Think We Should All Boycott It"

Excellent post from a very accomplished Bay Area musician who knows what he's talking about! I completely agree with Eric Din's sentiments that Hendrix was a gentle soul and is misrepresented in this movie. IF it's ever released, I will be boycotting it.

Moon into Virgo at 2:24pm

So now we have some forward motion with our mentality and negotiating power! With the Moon's entrance into Virgo, it further enhances our desires to get organized and tie up any loose ends from June.

Watch for things to REALLY get moving though after Jupiter enters Leo on July 16th, AND Mars enters Scorpio on July 25th! The beginning of July is a time to get yourself organized as we build towards late July/August, which is highlighted for real expansive, fiery action!!!
