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.
Today marks the halfway point of the year 2020, and with so much that has happened in a very short amount of time, I don’t doubt that change is afoot in your psyches.
A friend and I were virtually chatting about the lows of quarantine life, and she made the point of how this pandemic has shown an even bigger spotlight on mental and emotional health and wellness. These are extremely anxious times, which is why if you are simply able to make it out of bed this morning, you’re winning. If not, that’s OK too.
Every spring begins a series of planet retrogrades in the heavens above, and this spring is no different. Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter have begun their backspin around the almighty Sun, while Venus, and soon Mercury, follow suit.
Quarantine fatigue has officially set in for me and I don’t doubt that you’re feeling it too. We all seem to be at that place of acceptance – surrender might be a better word – with regards to where we are in these unimaginable times.
Last Friday, I spent the evening with Psychic Coach and my good friend Jamila White of inspiredjamila.com where we dished about all things astrology, including:
- What the planets have to do with Coronavirus, 45, and this election year;
- Why 2020 is an astrologically historic year;
- Why getting your child’s chart done is important;
- What the USA’s zodiac sign is (it’s not Cancer!);
- How to get your personal chart done if you don’t know your exact birth time;
- My astrological prediction about how long the quarantine will last;
- And much more!
I also shared a very special deal to get your own astrological reading and/or life coach session!
If you want something good to watch this evening, this is it! Until then, be sure to share this video with your friends and save/bookmark it so you can refer to it later!
Check your horoscopes to see what’s in store this week ahead, and don’t forget to read for your Ascendant sign too.
Last week, a friend and I met up for a virtual happy hour and spent most of our Zoom meeting talking about all the things we had planned, pre-pandemic. Of course, with everything on hold now, all we could do was throw our hands up and say, “we’ll see.”
