Working for a Compromise — June 1-8 2022  


Mercury in the sign Taurus is retrograde until Friday, and stationary on Saturday, resuming direct motion on Sunday. Saturn in Aquarius also slows to stationary and begins retrograde motion on Sunday. The two are in a square aspect, although the partile square is not reached, they are less that one degree from partile until Monday, June 6th. This challenging aspect works to rehabilitate, or possibly reform the limits of law.

The chart of July 4, 1776 has Pluto retro at 27 deg Capricorn, less that one degree from partile conjunction aspect with transiting Pluto.  The conjunction aspect to natal Pluto will reach partile on July 13, 2022.  The third transit of Pluto of the US natal position is in January 2023, as the 118th US Congress is sworn in. The November 2022 vote is crucial. The eclipse on election day Nov 8 2022, signifies a transformation, a radical shift from tradition. It is indeed the citizens votes that count most in a democracy. Claiming the right to reinterpret or amend the constitution is the citizen’s right. These amazing coincidences seem too good to be true. The universe is in harmony with justice. Venus in Taurus is in a semi-sextile aspect with Mars in Aries, reaching partile on June 5th, each in its sign of rulership, as friendship and compatibility coincide.
