Everything you need to know about the Earth opening up and swallowing your planets or the other way around.
Horoscopes by Corina Dross
It’s official: Mars is out of retrograde and with it our collective energy has shot forward like an arrow. But before we cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war, bear in mind that Mars is still in Libra, a serpentine sign where those arrows are bound to fly a little crooked. However riled we may get, I strongly recommend doing some fact checking before wilding out. And please, let’s all promise not to cloak our aggression in sanctimonious purity. Be on guard against indirect aggression, in yourself or others. With the planet of war stomping through the sign of peace, that iron fist of hierarchical power will be wearing the velvet glove of non-violent communication and community-building. There will be battles all around this month, and some will be far subtler than others. Recognize what’s at stake and don’t let someone else take a stand or take the fall for you.
Situations will be especially tense on the 19th as Mars busts into the famed Uranus-Pluto square. For those new to this astrological configuration, it’s a years-long period of increased tension between entrenched power (Pluto) and revolutionary, liberating (Uranus) forces. Adding Mars to the mix is like kicking over an oil lamp in a barn. A handy guideline for such times: Don’t be afraid of your shadow. The fault lines of oppression and liberation that play out on the world’s stage also cut through each of us, so let’s fight fair.
Just to keep it interesting, Mercury will be in retrograde from June 7th till the end of the month. Allow a little extra time for things to run un-smoothly during these weeks. Those of you who identify as chaos monsters and stoners will know what I’m talking about. Some relief comes in the form of a grand water trine involving Saturn (structure, stability), Jupiter (expansion, joy) and the asteroid Chiron (healing old wounds) – this supportive trifecta can serve as a cool bath for those of you that need a break. Use these horoscopes accordingly: sink into whatever feels restorative and shake off the excess when you’re done. As they are written with a broad lens, you can focus it a little by reading your rising sign first, followed by your sun and moon signs.
Your name is being called by sacred things
That are not addressed nor listened to
Sometimes they blow trumpets
Oh my God it's a jungle in here
You've got wild animals loose in here
