Saturn’s Last Stand: “Do the Work”

It's the Moon-month of Cancer, and the beginning of Saturn's Last Stand, as the Retrograde Lord of Karma backs up into the final degrees of Capricorn, staying there until December to ensure we internalize his lessons. This six-month review of all the maturity, wisdom, self-discipline, personal responsibility, and ambition Saturn has empowered us to earn during the last two years will either be painful or powerfully positive, depending if we've done the work. Saturn teaches that doing the work means understanding the work is never done. This is the beginning of wisdom.

The Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Capricorn on July 4 squared by Mars in Aries may truly be an Independence Day from rigid dogma, socio-societal constriction, corporate communal trauma and individual emotional isolation, but only if we are willing to open our hearts and minds to see beyond the broad swath of stereotypes, cartoonish political allegiances and nuance-stifling identity politics. This is the third consecutive Mars/Full Moon Square, building on the tensions of this ideological chasm. Chiron the Wounded Healer retrograde in Aries July 11 demands personal responsibility for the violence we do to each other as a society and to ourselves as individuals.

It's "fighting words" when Mercury squares Mars July 8 (retrograde), and July 27 (direct). Mercury Direct July 12 at the Last Quarter Moon in Aries inspires courage to speak truth to power. The second of this year's two New Moons in Cancer July 20 offers another chance to heal our mother-wound. Leo Sun July 22 challenges ideas of true leadership.

Our world is undergoing a profound societal shift. The tectonic plates of institutionalized power grind and groan against the pressure of cumulative communal injustice. Transformation happens when the pain of staying the same finally outweighs the fear of change. May the scales be tipped soon!
