Mars has officially entered the sign of Aries, which brings a pick me up! It’s been almost two years since the red warrior planet returned home to the sign it rules, and THIS fire sign is hype!
I spent the weekend with family, in New Moon ritual, and high from time spent in communion with fellow Black astrologers in a podcast roundtable discussion on Astrology, reclaiming Blackness, and racial justice. It was the perfect way to celebrate the legacy of my Ancestors on Juneteenth; to be in a space of stargazers who looked like me was affirming in ways I didn’t know I needed.
We’re all in for a collective deep breath as a Solar Eclipse peaks in the sign of Cancer the Crab next Sunday, June 21st. This amplified New Moon coincides with the Summer Solstice ushering in a season of healing and renewal.
A friend and I were talking the other day about how big companies have been pledging donations to organizations like the ACLU, the NAACP and etc. in support of black lives and racial justice. My friend thought it was a step in the right direction. I felt like a step in the right direction would have been an annual, if not a monthly pledge.
