This morning’s Full Moon in Aries is the invitation to big adventure — whether you want it or not. It may also be an invitation to get caught in assorted dramas, which I suggest you avoid. Stick to the creative side of this event, and let others do all the dancing on the table. Focusing your energy counts for a lot now — as the Sun approaches a conjunction to Saturn early next week, the momentum of today can be turned into the achievements of tomorrow. We have been through a year of some of the most tumultuous astrology of our lifetimes, and we are in a moment of relative calm. Definitely spend some time relaxing, but only enough to get yourself in motion toward your authentic goals. Venus and Mars remain in Scorpio, which creates an erotic-hormonal realm almost cosmic in nature; that might conflict with established concepts of relationships. You have the choice to be good or be real. Tune into Eric's free weekly podcast at Planet Waves. Read Eric's monthly horoscopes on Chronogram.com.
People are driven by religious belief far more than they recognize. Religion has done a fine job of taking over all ideas about creation of life, birth and death. It is an unconscious relationship with death in particular that drives people to cling to their beliefs. But then along the way, sex has been corrupted and nearly everyone is convinced that there’s something wrong with it.
Our planet began its passage between Mars and the Sun recently, which astrologers call Mars retrograde. That started April 17 and ends June 29. Mars is rarely retrograde, so this qualifies as a special event.
