A reading that expounds on the blog post Mars Retrograde Tarot Reading 2020
Mars goes Retrograde at 28 degrees of Aries on September 9th and stationing Direct on November 13th at 15 degrees. This Retrograde period can have the effect of softening the edge on some course emotions such as rage, terror, jealousy and hatred and rekindling our heart’s true passions. It may also bring back opportunities to pick up where we left off with certain hobbies or interests. However, when Mars goes back into Direct motion in November, those pressing matters which were left unsaid and undone may come to a head – and explode!
Remember to check out the description for your Rising sign too. For a more specific and detailed reading, a full birth chart reading with transits is recommended.
Here some ideas for each of the signs:
For you Arians out there this Retrograde period is all about you getting back into touch with yourself on a deep level. What do you really want to happen and with who? In what ways have you been holding yourself back? This should be an illuminating time in which you reignite your joie de vivre.
This phase offers a reflection period for all that you have put your energy toward during the past couple of years. Are the results to your liking or are there certain things you would like to change? Likely there are both. Inspiration comes to you in unusual forms over these next few weeks.
You are interested in connecting with old friends or an old flame. Your life has undergone drastic changes and this period offers you the chance to assimilate them. Rather than keep your thoughts to yourself, you may stronger desire connection with your community in which to share plans and ideas.
Has your work load been heavy lately or have your body seemed to struggle with increased demands at work or at home? Maybe during this period you’ll finally be able to get a better handle on it all. Something finally falls into place that took a great deal of your time and energy before.
You’ve recently been drawn out into the open again, after a period of rest or laying low. It seems like everything is happening “all at once”. For some of you this year has led to a spiritual crisis or awakening. Now you will finally be able to make sense of your impressions and experiences.
The subject of money comes into focus, especially as it pertains to legal agreements. How you deal with this is a personal choice. If you’ve felt stuck this year in some way that may soon change for the better. A new option or invitation will appear. A previous gift in disguise makes itself known.
Partnerships have been a roller coaster this year, sometimes being fun and other times totally sucky. During this period Mars mellows out the tension you’ve been experiencing with someone, whether this is a close interpersonal relationship, business centered or something else. Objectivity is key.
Either more things seem to have been asked of you lately, or you have decided that you need to take major action in some area of your life that has become too stagnant. In any case this is a very busy phase for you when a special routine begins to pick up. This is also a great time for personal healing.
The highlight is your creative life force energy. You are getting back into doing something that you really enjoy, or continuing a project that you began recently. Go back to doing what you love, and what comes naturally to you. This period may also feature activities with your children or young people.
The thing being called to your attention is the need to change something within your environment. It is very possible that you leave an unhealthy situation at work or do something to fix it. For many of you this will revolve around your home life. It’s about gaining relief from something that’s bothering you.
Your family members are the highlight this month, whether that means biological or kindred spirits. If you’ve had disagreements lately this time period should help you to patch things up. For some of you the focus may actually revolve around education and being able to continue with your studies.
If money has slipped through your fingers for awhile or you’ve simply been unhappy about your purchases, that could change during Mar’s Retrograde through your second house. You’ll no longer feel like you’re getting the short end of the stick here. You’re entering a period of increased fulfillment.
Mars Retrograde in Aries September 9 – November 13
Reading for the World 🌎
Using the Herbal Tarot deck by Michael Tierra and Candis Cantin I picked 3 cards for this transit of Mars Retrograde in its home sign, Aries. Raw malachite, a stone of transformation and psychic protection is pictured above.
What surrounds us: 8 of Swords
This currently speaks of the continued sense of being hemmed in and locked down. It is important to ground, pause and focus because there are so many ideas, so many options that make it difficult to know the truth or choose correct decisions. Many s-words can mean the mix-up of words, and resulting anxiety. The swords represent air and the air quality in many parts of the world is very poor right now due to smoke from so-called “wildfires”. This card indicates a collective movement through a “dark night of the soul”, where we have the opportunity to face many fears, conquer many obstacles. Black Cohosh is an herb long sacred to Native Americans and used for nerves, cramps and pains. On the energy level this herb and its flower assists with spiritual detoxification – especially of those toxins that have accumulated as a result of suffering many years of abuse. This is a social kind of abuse that very few of us have escaped. Now, more are recognizing it and ready to break the pattern.
Advice card: Temperance
Temperance speaks of the search for truth. It suggests cooperative efforts for global transformation. There is a star 🌟 of truth and divine providence that shines above each of us, lighting the way at every moment. By following this truth instead of temptation, greed and temporary conveniences we break free of vicious cycles that would keep us trapped in a state of perpetual suffering. Temperance also reflects being shown a method/methods of honing our unique skills, to perfect our artistry (there is an art to almost every skill) in a way that positively impacts those around us. Traditionally, this card depicts an Angel holding alchemical cups. This, among other things serves as a reminder that divine assistance is available when we truly allow it into our lives. Echinacea is an herb widely used for building immunity. It is not meant for long term use, nor is it for use by all people. Here, it primarily serves as a reminder to keep up our immunity in every possible way, because we need our strength to get through these immensely challenging times.
Outcome: 6 of Swords
This speaks of a journey be it physical, mental or spiritual. The journey may take place over water, figuratively or literally. Some will sink, others will swim, and yet others will sail across. The water in this case may be Neptunian in nature…an ocean of deception that many have risen above and now navigate above. It indicates a big mental “AHA” that is and will be occurring by the time Mars goes Direct in mid-November. The 6 of Swords points to the shedding of outmoded ideas and becoming more aware of the world around us. Old views are replaced with new knowledge and wisdom, especially near the Equinox of September 22nd. Blockages to many 3rd eyes 👁 wil be cleared so that more people see the truth of what is going on. Vervain induces sweat, removes toxins. This could hint at the healing quality of the sweat lodge, sauna, steam-room or of the Sun. It’s time to sweat out the poisons of global domination from our collective Souls.
Mars, planet of action moves backward in a square with Pluto these next few months. This is a sign of both tension and huge changes underway.
We are the resistance to medical tyranny, economic slavery and global corruption 💪
The month of August kicked off for Victoria, Australia with a government “state of disaster” prompted by proclaimed rising death tolls of the elderly and other victims of Covid-19.
In the birth chart of Australia from January 26, 1788, in Sydney, an exact degree transit of Pluto to Australia’s Mercury in Capricorn has been in effect all throughout 2020. This was set off by the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in January. Saturn is so often viewed as the devil of the earth. Pluto is the planet of death and the masses, of sweeping changes and the kind of deep-set filth that takes something terrible and huge to purify – or something that in and of itself due to its invasive nature needs purification. Mercury is the planet of commerce, communication and the media. With Pluto passing over it, a target for propaganda and large displays of power, domination and bullying could literally be ripped open. Part of this has manifested in the form of citizens being approached at their own doorsteps and served with mandatory PCR testing. Some officers have threatened to separate family members from each other.
A few weeks prior to the lock-down it was stated by health officials that if people did not comply with mandatory testing they would be forced to pay an outstanding fine close to $10,000.
Saturn was in exact opposition to Australia’s Uranus at the time of the latest lock-down, indicating the sudden prohibition of many freedoms. This chart seems to reveal more in the way of transits than that of Australia’s Inauguration birth chart on January 1st 1901. Some things worth considering about the latter chart is that the North Node had just begun to transit Australia’s Neptune in Gemini with the South Node passing over its Jupiter in Sagittarius. This could explain the blurring of actual occurrences with false statistics in order to confuse people and completely strip them of their sovereignty. Being at the tail end of a Saturn Return in this case may also indicate Australia getting kicked in the rear end with increased limitations. Either way, Saturn’s influence is great, for Australia was most recently born under a Capricorn Sun, ruled by old father time. It is being transited in a trine by Uranus, the planet of sudden reversals of fate and fortune, achieving its aims in this situation via technology.
Drones have been used for surveillance purposes to locate inhabitants of Victoria who are not wearing masks and whose cars are parked too far away from home. Vaccines are being prepared for mandatory injection – a total violation of human rights. These various maneuvers are all part of the 5G “trend” leading toward a transhumanistic world, where machines and robots would dictate our every move, purchase and conversation. All privacy of any kind would be eradicated, a thing of the past. True health and well-being would be masked by chemicals and people eventually replaced by clones.
By pushing the narrative of a deadly virus the hidden global elite have been able to dupe people into submission the world over. Since we are “all connected” by simply living on this planet it it goes without saying that what happens in Australia will soon happen to the rest of civilization unless we collectively stand together and fight against this tyranny. It’s a large task, and too much to take on all at once. Many small communities are successfully taking measures to guard their freedoms and the power of their strength and influence is on the rise. Still, we are out-numbered by those who are falling into mind-boggling fear traps.
An Australian protest for freedom is being planned on September 5th. Although the intentions of this may be worthy the results of could be problematic. Already small protests have broken out in Muslim communities, and due to a backlash by police officers this will escalate the existing movement to defund police, which would eventually mean replacing them with digital surveillance and martial law.
With the Full Moon in Pisces on September 1st there is indeed a lot of negativity and sickness floating around, coming up to be purged. Although it may be affecting our bodies it’s not physical but psychic in nature. It is the mental and emotional garbage of a world full of people that have lost their way and become submerged in gross materialism and a fear of lack, making them easy to manipulate, easy to guilt-trip and easy to enslave. This is a time to shake loose that debris, to reclaim the truth of who we are and to fully inhabit our bodies and our world with keen awareness. If we fail to do so, we may soon be facing our demise. The truth might seem scary but the nightmare of a false utopia, filled with false security could be fatal.
Wherever you happen to live in the world, you can help raise the energy for true freedom to be realized with prayers, meditations, refusing compliance and sharing the knowledge that you have.
The Lunar Eclipse 13 degrees of Capricorn on July 4th/5th is the last of a series of eclipses in the polar signs of Cancer and Capricorn between 2019 and 2020. The recent reinforcement of mandatory shelter in place lock-downs and wearing of masks relates to the Sun in Cancer/Moon in Capricorn themes of security and authority, of the fears of death by viruses, food shortages and impending martial law.
A t-square is formed to the Black Moon Lilith in Aries which can be taken as a dark omen of explosive things to come, but not at all when most people are expecting them. I normally don’t “black-pill” in my blog posts but the scale of ignorance I have witnessed lately has compelled me to communicate with an urgency that is equal to that being displayed in race riots.
Social movements funded by globalists have served as a major distraction to seizures of property and personal rights, not to mention the widespread roll-out of 5G technology and the silent launch of smart cities worldwide. While people have refrained from going out and about as usual, the roll-out has rapidly grown in several parts of the world. The design of such infrastructure is intended to be used for total surveillance of every inch of occupied space in addition to population control. This is a DEADLY weaponized form of technology that weakens immunity, and it has been shown that the first areas to be hit hard by corona had first experienced a roll-out of 5G. Meanwhile, too many people are looking the other way – including healers and psychics. They say “we can’t do anything about it anyway…”
Since when did passivity form the basis of the spiritual lifestyle?
The United States of America is particularly vulnerable to this effects of this eclipse which make an exact opposition to its Sun at 13 degrees of Cancer. It also forms a square to the US’s Saturn in Libra and to its Chiron in Aries. It is more than just a bit coincidental just how many major aspects are hitting the US’s chart during this Election year. Current events may serve as a strong warning of what may unfold during America’s Pluto Return during the next couple of years. The country is diving masked-nose-first on its way into a deeper economic collapse than anyone alive today has ever seen. That is unless millions more people quickly reroute their attention toward legitimate solutions instead of what the media dictates they should be doing.
The eclipse is exactly opposite of asteroid goddess Vesta, ruling over sacred space, refuge and the ability to keep the home fires burning. Fire can sustain life or burn it down to ash. That fire can be actual or metaphorical. People have been forced to remain inside of their homes throughout 2020 so that they do not step outside for too long and observe the totalitarian takeover of their city streets, schools, businesses – and of their own minds!
Pallas Athene, warrior goddess of truth and justice which is in exact degree conjunction to Jupiter, and also conjunct Saturn and Pluto. Her archetypal energy may be attuned to for growing the inner resolve to face the enormous challenges that lie before us.
Jupiter in particular has been our leading planet in 2020. Here is an brief quote from the extra long article I wrote last year called “Jupiter in Capricorn 2019-2020: End of an Epoch and Turning Point to a New Life”:
“The combination of Pallas Athene, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in 2020 indicate that powerful forces are at work in our personal lives and on a large scale, relative to authority figures, hierarchies, government and the economy. The overall tone may to some seem heavy, depressing or overly serious when both Venus and Jupiter go Retrograde on May 14th. Venus goes Direct June 26th and Jupiter stations Direct again on September 12th. Both of the Great Benefics going backward may cause us to draw our resources closer and become less outgoing…”
Also, of Jupiter in particular:
“The ancients knew of Jupiter’s glory and magnificence. They fully understood its importance in world events. Both Jupiter and Saturn were said to control the masses and to guide the destinies of humankind until the awareness of individuals grew aware enough to determine some of their own fate. These two planets in addition to Pluto are playing huge roles in economic and sociopolitical movements between the end of 2019 and beginning of 2021 as their coming together has been ushering in an epochal turning point in society and global currency.”
The warning signs are all around us, practically mocking us at every turn. Defunding the police is not the answer to corrupt forces both high and low that capitalize human losses. It would be far more conducive to collective survival to refuse compliance with governmental programs that seek to dictate our livelihood by shutting down businesses, that destroy our health through enforcement of medical martial law, and manipulate our beliefs through censorship and propaganda.
This eclipse in Capricorn sheds a light on all being held in bondage, with a brief glimpse into what could be our narrow escape from danger. There is so much more to us than these bodies and the assets that we may or may not own. We are spirits in flesh, currently experiencing a painfully limited version of what life could be…
“If you want total security, go to prison. There you’re fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking…is freedom.” – Dwight Eisenhower
A super charged Solar Eclipse new moon at 0 degrees of Cancer is fast approaching and coincides with the Solstice turning point of the year on June 21st. The sign of Cancer is ruled by the Moon, which in turn rules the ocean’s tides, bodily fluids, and emotional fluctuations.
One of Cancer’s symbols is the crab which retreats into its shell when threatened. Thus, this sign more than any other is concerned with all matters pertaining to security. It is the one precious thing that the population at large currently wants more than anything else, and the more it is grasped at, the further away it seems from reach.
This New Moon places a huge highlight on our home life, roots, family ties, and conflict between the desires for safety and freedom. Significant, life-changing new beginnings await but can only be set into motion when that which impedes progress has been cleared out of the way. Simultaneously, the threat of the New World Order has made itself widely known across the globe. This is not want most people want to hear or even believe, but it’s happening nonetheless. The only reason it appears to be succeeding is that too few people believe in their own power, which is why they seek for it outside of themselves.
All four cardinal signs relate to warfare, and this Cancerian moon is clearly reflecting back to us that a new civil war has already begun, in the form of street riots and race wars. The widespread fear of contagious disease has blinded people to the fact that their personal rights are being stripped away at lightning speed.
In order to gain monetary security, personal safety or attain any real peace of mind, emotions must not be allowed to replace critical thinking. Being able to pause and assess the current reality is absolutely imperative to our survival as a species.
There are five planets currently Retrograde, including Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto. What lessons can be learned from our own past mistakes as well as the mistakes of those who came before us? There is no time like the present to set things straight, like they’ve never been set before. Part of that means NON-compliance with rules that promise security while stealing away our liberties.
Cancer is a water sign, and water is what we’re largely made of. Although toilet paper and masks have been the world’s hottest commodities in 2020, water to drink and bathe in may become the next scarce resource within the next few years. Instead of blaming this solely on climate change, we need to hold those accountable who are purposefully furthering the destruction of this planet with the swift roll-out of unsafe technology – ALL UNDER THE GUISE OF CREATING – can you guess? SAFETY.
Below are a few tips on how to stabilize emotions and build true and lasting so-called “security”, errhem…for lack of a better word. The work begins inwardly, by cultivating an attitude of self-trust and courage in the face of huge obstacles.
- Practice at least 5 minutes of meditation or sitting in silence per day.
- Feng Shui in the home, office or room of residence, clearing out clutter.
- Bath in the moonlight, spend quality time at the beach, river or spa.
- Prepare and share sacred meals with family and loved ones.
- Start a savings account for self, loved ones or a business.
- Renovate or relocate to a new home.
- Practice random acts of kindness.
- Set aside time to rest and recharge after intense activities.
- Turn off the wifi, cell phone and do away with smart devices.
- Let go of the attachment to specific outcomes.
As the world celebrates Elon Musk’s SpaceX astronauts’ first successful launch into space on May 30th of 2020, plans are being made by the space mission to launch over 40,000 5G satellites into orbit, which is bound to have extremely destructive effects upon all life on planet earth. This satellite network would bring high speed internet access to every part of the globe. Already there are satellites out there being funded by several major corporations, and at the rate things are going, the endeavor to “blanket the earth” in high millimetre frequencies could literally bring the complete end of civilization.
Before life comes to halt, all humans and creatures would be under constant surveillance and eventually controlled by microwave beams that interfere with their cognitive functions. Those who don’t die off as a result of oxygen depletion and who refuse to integrate with technological advancements (aka transhumanism) will be destroyed or seized as property. For those who don’t buy it or still want proof that this technology is dangerous and used in military weaponry, there have been thousands of studies still publicly available to review. Here are three links that break down some of the basic issues being faced:
Meanwhile, riots and protests over race wars have replaced the terror of contagious disease, since murder hornets weren’t enough to capture everyone’s attention. Political tensions mount in the U.S. as well as other countries struggling with their own forms of economic collapse. If the elites are funding rocket ships to other planets as an escape route from the earth’s growing dangers, in search of an alternative home, let’s not kid ourselves. It’s not on our own behalf that they are doing so.
Elon Musk is considered by many to be both a tech guru and philanthropist. He is most obviously an entrepreneur who cares little for what happens to the rest of the population since his money and assets can apparently keep him out of harm’s way. His exact birth time is unknown but his birthdate is coming up.
Elon was born on June 28th 1971 in Pretoria, South Africa. His Cancer Sun conjunct Mercury reflects his strong ability to create and acquire provisions, while putting him in the limelight. His North Node conjunct Mars in Aquarius will be transited by Saturn in 2022, signaling some significant achievements in the way of technology, but not without a heavy price. It’s hard to say what that will look like for him, since Saturn is the planet that can cement things and bring them into greater prominence for better or worse. That same year, he will be experiencing a Chiron Return which in his case may be nothing for him to worry about since he has probably got replacement limbs and organs planned out in case his human parts begin to malfunction.
On the Solstice of June 21st 2020, Elon’s Sun will be loosely eclipsed by the Solar Eclipse in Cancer with his Mercury transited in exact degree conjunction by Mercury Retrograde in Cancer. His fame has already increased tremendously in the past few months and this eclipse could bring him even more followers…or, since eclipses are not quite security focused he could lose some credibility.
Venus Retrograde in Gemini has been bringing Elon “happy returns” since it makes a return to his own natal Venus in Gemini. His intelligence and light-hearted, if not awkward yet somehow “endearing” social mannerisms grant him a wide social appeal in Hollywood and the world over. His perceived charm could turn out to be fatal if millions don’t wake up to the truth of what Elon and the likes of him are actually contributing to society and the earth.
Saturn’s transit through Aquarius is challenging us not only through “social distancing” but through cyber attacks and energy weapons that threaten the fabric of at least the physical aspect of our existence. SpaceX and the romanticized idea of exploring space is the perfect seductive cover-up for it. It’s time to take a good hard look at the facts before it’s too late for any of us to do anything to stop this.
The Lunar Eclipse on June 5th is at 15 degrees of Sagittarius, pointing toward the vast stretch of unknown territory and possibilities that exist just beyond peripheral vision. It is the first of three eclipses in a row to occur in 2020, the second of which may bring results that echo into the future for decades to come.
This super-charged full moon, opposite of Venus Retrograde signals that the time has come to release that which has become too heavy to carry around physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, to break free from that which confines and to take a few reasonable risks that lead to greater understanding and growth. There are open field opportunities revealing themselves left and right, but they may seem more intimidating than promising. Life was never about guarantees, but about experience.
An exact degree t-square with Mars in Pisces indicates that change is imminent and probably quite anxiety-producing. Mars is sandwiched between Ceres and Neptune, so there are confusing issues to face around what nurtures vs what chokes our life force energy. It can be very difficult to discern between the two, especially since the domain of Pisces lacks solid boundaries overall.
Taking a step backward to gain a clearer picture of what is actually going on may help considerably before taking big action. Some things need to be broken down into smaller steps before the sense of what is “correct” comes into full view. That being said, staying stuck is not currently an option. Much is beginning to become unstuck. Much is now moving forward, regardless of what and who is ready for the movement.
Sagittarius reminds us of a kind of divine providence that exists, regardless of religious dogmas and ideologies. We all need hope as well faith at a time like this, when there is so much uncertainty about the direction we are heading in as a species and how we will survive the myriad odds against us.
Anything is possible, including miracles. Still, courage, focus and the pursuit of wisdom is required of more of us than ever before.
Venus’s current Retrograde in Gemini has inspired me to reconnect with some of the medicine that has brought me and others joy. I have recently resumed my practice of offering flower essence consultations and designing custom blends based on the natal chart and transits. Within each consultation there may be emotional challenges, health concerns and other subjects discussed in order to come up with the combination of flower essences, gem elixirs and other energy remedies that are right for you.
The price of the consultation is the same cost as that of an astrology reading because the same amount of time and energy goes into it (lasting for one hour), while focused on healing. The consultation is like an energy reading and can take place via Skype or Zoom, or recorded in advance if that is your preference. There is an additional charge for the formulation of the essence blend or mist.
There are two ways for doing this. One is to order the consultation together with a 2 oz. mist bottle, which may be used externally on the skin and environment. Another is to just order the consultation first and then decide what size and how many remedies are desired.
If you live outside of the U.S. or Canada please check in with me before you order as the price may change significantly due to the shipping cost.
Flower Essence Consultation – $150
Essence Consultation with 2 oz. Mist (includes shipping) – $175
