We are experiencing a new level of Embodiment and revelation and increasing physicalisation of what is already created in the etheric. More Magnetic Shifts are predicted following the June 23rd scientifically unexplained Global Magnetic Anomaly so the next phase of magnetic releases is beginning. Two important planetary events shift the energy field completely this week:
- Mars returns to home sign Aries for 6 months instead of the usual 6 weeks!
- A Lunar Eclipse across 13 Capricorn/Cancer on July 5
The next 6 months are going to be intense. Mars crosses the sensitive World Axis on June 28th and exits on January 6th 2021, traveling back and forth across his own sign of Aries. It’s been 32 years (1988) since the last Mars retrograde in Aries and it will be 47 years before it happens again in 2067.
This transit will dominate the second half of 2020, so check your chart to find out which aspect of your life Mars will be energising. In the August and again in December the Warrior planet will make repeated squares to Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn plus an exact conjunction with Disruptor Eris-the stakes are high.
Whatever happened back in March when Mars conjuncted Saturn and Pluto will be coming back round again for resolution. For most of us, this was when the Covid19 lockdown began…….
This is warrior, pioneering energy, intensifying the life force, the libido, upleveling your physicality. The shadow side is ego and the refusal to consider other people in pursuit of your goals. In the collective, the 1% are going to be repeatedly challenged by the rage of the 99% in a perfect storm caused by of lockdown frustration, financial losses and hardship mixed with demands for social equality.
Growth and evolution will come from how well you transform Strong Will into Skilful Will through psychosynthesis. We all need to become Sacred Actioneers.
Today, Sunday June 28th the chart for Mars in Aries on the World Axis shows the Warrior square the Sun, the Nodes of Fate and approaching a conjunction with Chiron. Since we are in the seismic window all week of the 3rd eclipse of July 5th, it suggests volatility. Venus is still in her retrograde shadow and Mercury is retrograde so Mars predominates.
Next Sunday July 5th the Lunar Eclipse is the very last of 9 eclipses across Capricorn/Cancer since 2018. One by one, they have brought home to every single one of us the lived Truth of the fragility and impermanence of life – as Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto’s transits through Capricorn at the same time have broken apart social frameworks, governments and the economy. This is a time to be very gentle with yourself – the world will feel harsh and emotions raw. The Capricorn Moon can be hard on those of us who are sensitives.

Chandra Symbol Aries 1:
Repairing and Extending an Old Stone Wall in the Spring
“Objective Earth existence embraced with a fury. Identifying yourself completely with physical capability, external results, and quantifiable criteria on all fronts. You wilfully submerge yourself in the brute facts and the bare phenomena. There is a virtue in this approach. You become ready and quite able to do what is asked or needed and to put nothing in the way of each next thing happening, right on schedule. You actually become a hardy vessel for strong Earth usage. It is a form of penance or probation for past excesses, now gravitating toward the straight and narrow and trying to get certain things straight for a brand new start. It is the initial phase, the radically new cycle taken up with a passion, with an enormous appetite for things to do, problems to solve, worlds to streamline. Tremendous for activating will; intended for nothing else.” Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
Aries Week Ahead Forecast: June 28-July 5, 2020
A heads up! Three of the four angles of your chart are going to be activated this week, Aries. The angles are your foundations, the support structures of your life. On Sunday June 28th, action planet Mars returns to his own sign and it is significant for you because he will cross and re-cross Aries for 6 months instead of the usual 6 weeks! Mid- week the Sun and Mercury start a new cycle just before the last of 9 eclipses across Cancer/ Capricorn activating your axis of work/life. The headline for the next 6 months is that you need to become the rebel, the maverick, the pioneer you really are. The conflict may arise in terms of balancing your personal and private life so that if fits who you are now, not how you used to be.
What have the last 6 months taught you and what are you going to do differently because of it?
Taurus Week Ahead Forecast: June 28-July 5, 2020
As Mars enters Aries for a six month stay this Sunday, it’s time to prioritise your physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. The 3 eclipses-with the last one next Sunday July 5th-have been hard on you and you’ve had to dig very deep to keep going during the last 18 months. Mars in your 12th House-the deepest part of your psyche -is going to renovate the engine room of your chart between now and January 2021.That’s where your unconscious processes your emotions, where your defences are formed and where your memories and dreams are stored in your Akashic Records. You’ve been pushing and driving yourself relentlessly to keep all the balls in the air and now, to avoid burn out, you need to unplug. That may be by changing the scenery, going on retreat or consulting a therapeutic practitioner….whatever works for you to restore your batteries.
Changing your priorities.
Gemini Week Ahead Forecast: June 28-July 5, 2020
A big issue for you during the next 6 months is going to be about who you choose to spend time with and invest your love and energy in. Mars moving into your 11th House of friends, groups and contacts will give you the nudge-or should that be shove?- to re-arrange your people landscape so that it better reflects who you are now, not who you used to be. Think in terms of deepening intimacy rather than knowing lots of different people on a superficial level. Try mapping the people in your life with you as a dot in the centre then putting dots for those closest nearby and moving others further away. See how that gives you an instant insight into those who are there because of duty or because you met them along the way but who don’t necessarily add anything.
Distinguishing between drainers and supporters.
Cancer Week Ahead Forecast: June 28-July 5, 2020
If your career has been in a rough patch, the news is that energy planet Mars is about to shake things up. On June 28th ,the Warrior crosses the pinnacle of your chart to stay until January. This could play out in several different ways: a boss or manager could become assertive or demanding or you could refuse to tolerate their demands any longer. You might decide to change your role or job. With the eclipse on July 5th in your relationship zone, a changing of the guard seems inevitable. The key is to remind yourself that you always have more options and resources available to you than you think. Hopefully, this blast of fiery energy could be just what you need to put down some strong boundaries. Think back to 2002 – how have you evolved since then and how did you sabotage yourself? That’s your agenda for drawing a line in the sand.
When is enough enough?
Leo Week Ahead Forecast: June 28-July 5, 2020
The next six months should put the spring back in your step, Leo! Energy planet Mars is going to be stirring up compatible fellow Fire sign Aries from June 28th to January 2021! This is your 9th House of expansion, adventure and widening your horizons. Since the July 5th eclipse is the last across your axis of retreat for another 9 years, it’s time to reflect on what the last 6 months have shown you and to spend some time re-configuring your priorities. You definitely need some juicy adventures, some play time but you also need to earn a living. How can you re-balance your daily activities so that they perfectly reflect your new priorities? Mars in Aries is pioneering, life force energy that needs to be expressed by doing not thinking.
Tapping into a wellspring of potential.
Virgo Week Ahead Forecast: June 28-July 5, 2020
It’s another intense week ahead that’s going to change your perspective on what’s possible for you. On Sunday June 28th, warrior planet Mars moves into Fire sign Aries for a rare 6 month stay. This is going to kickstart your pioneering, maverick side, revealing aspects of yourself that have either been suppressed or lain dormant for a long time. Aries is your 8th House of finances, assets and intimate relationships. Meanwhile on July 5th the 3rd eclipse lights up your creativity, ending one phase and sowing the seeds for an entirely new project, business or income stream. This energy is so dynamic you may go further than you ever imagined – don’t worry in the Autumn when Mars retrogrades, you’ll be able to re-group.
Are you ready to experiment?
Libra Week Ahead Forecast: June 28-July 5, 2020
A heads up! Just like Aries, three of the four angles of your chart are going to be activated this week. The angles are your foundations, the support structures of your life. On Sunday June 28th, action planet Mars returns to his own sign meaning that he will criss-cross your relationship zone for 6 months instead of the usual 6 weeks! Given that July 5th’s 3rd eclipse throws a wild card into your career and home life, it seems that you have some re-prioritising to do. You might need to find creative ways to strengthen your home, your family and your one to one partnership. Or you may need some space and time out to work out what would be in your highest interests. The dramatic events of the last 6 months have delivered plenty of insights for you to chew over.
The question to keep asking is: what is my heart telling me?
Scorpio Week Ahead Forecast: June 28-July 5, 2020
Whenever your personal planet Mars changes sign, you notice the shift immediately. On Sunday June 28th when Mars returns to his home of Aries for six months instead of 6 weeks, you feel as if a fire is being lit under you. All the more so as an eclipse on July 5th brings insights, downloads and epiphanies about all the ways you’ve been keeping yourself small or holding yourself back. With this influx of just-do-it/go-for-it energy, you may feel driven to engage in a new health regime or to radically de-clutter. You’ll have zero tolerance for time wasters and people who don’t add warmth or value to your life. One caveat: pace yourself so that you don’t burn yourself out then drop all your new habits.
Holding a laser focus.
Sagittarius Week Ahead Forecast: June 28-July 5, 2020
Lucky you! As energy planet Mars returns to Aries to stay for an incredible 6 months instead of the usual 6 weeks, you will definitely feel in your element with lots of pioneering, risk taking momentum to lift your spirits. As the adventurer of the zodiac, unless you’re engaged in a personal quest of some sort, life seems to lack purpose. Not any longer. With July 5th’s eclipse across your 8th House and Mars in your 5th, money and relationships are on the front burner. Beware of getting carried away and taking big romantic or financial risks. Instead focus on packaging all your resources-including time, assets, experience, skills and values- so that you have something that adds value to other people and also to yourself.
Leveraging what you have.
Capricorn Week Ahead Forecast: June 28-July 5, 2020
Like Aries and Libra, three of the four angles of your chart are going to be activated this week. The angles are your foundations, the support structures of your life so any changes will have a big impact. With Warrior planet Mars crossing and re-crossing the base of your chart from June 28th to January 6 2021, there will be a lot of energy around at home. You might be challenged by someone in your family or find yourself in the role of crusader. Mars energy is best channelled physically so find some ways you enjoy to work it off so you don’t erupt like a volcano when someone upsets you. Happily, July 5th’s eclipse in your sign is the last of (9)! since 2018 that have hammered away at your personal security. What has life taught you about your resilience?
Starts by being kinder to yourself and then kinder to others, making the leap to trusting in life again.
Aquarius Week Ahead Forecast: June 28-July 5, 2020
We’re still in a turbulent triple eclipse tunnel until July 22 and this seismic week intensifies the changes. So, who could blame you if you’re feeling drained or wired yet tired? You need some gentleness now. You need some healing. You need a rest. As energy planet Mars enters fiery Aries for a rare 6 month stay, your mental, physical and spiritual health may be challenged. This is pushy, me-first energy that somehow doesn’t sit right with you. If you are challenged about your opinions, resist the temptation to respond in kind and just walk away. All this social media polarised tribalism is not your modus operandi-you prefer to think for yourself. Instead, channel the energy into enjoyable physical activity of some sort.
Staying centred in the eye of the storm.
Pisces Week Ahead Forecast: June 28-July 5, 2020
All the ongoing intensity is taking you right out of your comfort zone, Pisces, and you have my sympathies. The week ahead starts with Mars moving into your financial zone to stay for 6 months instead of 6 weeks! Expect to feel the need to do something-anything!-to channel this surge of just-do-it energy. Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water but start by de-cluttering and re-organising your finances so you’re completely up to date with the bottom line. Mars in Aries can bring people who question or challenge you so decide now what is negotiable and non-negotiable and stick to it. If there’s a clash of values or priorities, look deeper to get to the root of what’s behind it. Happily, it looks as if ties with friends are strengthening, giving you a deeper sense of connection and community.
Refuse to be pushed-everything in its own time.
