Today is Independence Day here in the USA and the sky reflects this. Mars has officially arrived in cardinal Libra and will spend most of the month of July trine Jupiter in Gemini. Mars-Jupiter aspects are always good for promoting enthusiasm and excitement. In this case, with both planets in air signs, this translates into endless discussions, monologues, dialogues, diatribes, etc.
Don’t forget today Mercury in Leo will be trine Uranus in Aries too . . . another aspect waxing and waning in strength for most of the month because Mercury will be stationing retrograde on 14 July. I can see this aspect inspiring plenty of brilliant, bold concepts that will be shamelessly promoted! Put this one in fire together with the Mars-Jupiter trine in air and it equals HOT AIR!! The news media and politicians are going to be in full cry the entire time. *sigh*
For those of us with planets or Angles at 7-9 degrees in fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and/or air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius), this promises to be a lively month, hopefully producing plenty of creative inspiration. I have a Saturn-Pluto conjunction at 8°-13° Leo and will be interested to see how having those two prodded works out. That’s a pretty cautious combo and more likely to advise exercising restraint than not.
Best not forget that Mars in Libra will be tweaking the Uranus-Pluto square this month too and produce more of the wrong kind of fireworks. It will be a very short trip from lively debates to heated arguments.
Whilst many may enjoy the liveliness of these aspects, especially if you have plenty of fire and air in your chart, others might not. Cancer folks in particular might end up with hurt feelings and feeling stressed out . . . probably due to another person’s lack of sensitivity. Draw your shell around you, Cancer, and let those remarks bounce right off!
If you are celebrating today, have a great time!© Copyright 2012 Diane L, All rights Reserved. Written For: Libra Seeking Balance
