A Celebrated Stellium – July 1-8 2020

Saturn returns to Capricorn at the start of the week, digging up more power in the cardinal earth sign of its domain, yet in retrograde as we are dealing with historical injustices, removing historical icons, and renaming our buildings and institutions. We cannot erase the past, but we can put a new foot forward, and open a new chapter. A necessary move for the New Age Awareness. The Sun supersedes Mercury retro in Cancer, as the Moon travels from Scorpio to Aquarius this week, with a renewed stellium in Capricorn, transiting the problematic JupiterPluto conjunction as well as Saturn in Capricorn. Jupiter expands Pluto’s forceful urge for a profound reassessment that rejects the past with a vision for the future. The past injustices lay heavy on the generations.  It is a time for reinvention of the national creed, the national image and to embrace the ideals.  The full Moon eclipse on July 5th helps to enable us to perceive an awakening and a reinvention of our collective will.
