The First Meetup of Mars and South Node
This is a very emotional and cleansing week in that there is very strong emotional energy with heavy Neptunian influences during the mid week. The biggest part of the week is that Mars, the planet of action, passion, and energy meets up with the South Node up for the first time of three times at seven degrees of Aquarius on June 8, 2018.
The two meet up for the first time on June 8th, and the beginning of the week, we all feel that buildup. This cosmic pairing of Mars and the South Node signifies HUGE endings, letting go of things and action that no longer serve you, and letting go of thing that block your energy and action to move forward in your life. The sign of Aquarius rules friendships, acquaintances, and groups. There may be associations you are letting go of now or from which you are distancing yourself.
Mars and the South Node usually meet once every two years; however, because Mars is about to retrograde at 9 degrees of Aquarius on June 26, 2018 and is retrograde through August 28, 2018, the two will meet up three times this year.
This gives us three times to let go of things that make us less effective, belief systems or ideas that no longer serve how we live our lives, or other things that we need to release. The first pairing is this week, and it peaks on June 8th, but we are being awakened to things that are leaving us all week. The two meet up again at 5 degrees of Aquarius when Mars is officially retrograde on June 20th, 2018, and that energy will start to escalate around the 15th and peaks on June 24, 2018.
Mars and the South Node meet up again a third and final time at 4 degrees of Aquarius on September 25, 2018. Uranus in Taurus will be squaring Mars in Aquarius on and off this summer prompting us to open our ideas as to what needs to change.
Uranus also squares the Node of fate directly later in the summer and will be opening our minds to a whole other level. We are almost not even ready to talk about it yet, as we need to let go of some things first in order to open the door for fast and immediate change; as well as life changing illuminations.
Uranus starts to aspect the Nodes of fate on September 26, 2018. It becomes exact on on October 26, 2018, and it lasts through December 1, 2018. They aspect each other again in 2018, but that is for 2018.
Uranus squaring the Nodes of fate could life changing with the changes that occur, flashes of brilliance, fated people and events that occur and come into your life — even if they are very brief.
This week gives us a preview of what working with Mars and the the South Node is about this year. This is all happening just a few weeks after Uranus changed signs on May 15, 2018. Uranus rules the fixed Air sign of Aquarius.
On June 5th, 2018, Mercury in Gemini meets up with the Sun at 15 degrees of Gemini. Although people can be a bit opinionated with this energy, it is also excellent for writing, all forms of communication, networking, and exchanging of ideas. Mercury is in its rulership and is very flexible while in Gemini.
The problem this week is that communication could be very emotionally based for a few reasons, and it is not Mercury in Gemini — that is the rational part. Venus, the planet of relationships, money, and what we value, opposes Pluto, the planet of power and transformation, on June 5, 2018 at 10:25 pm EDT.
This energy starts to build up on June 4, 2018 and is strong for a few days after the 5th when it is exact. This can bring power struggles, love triangles, and breakups. Financial and sex scandals could occur with this energy. Because Mars and the South node are going to bring endings this week, the Pluto/Venus opposition could definitely bring a breakup — especially when it uncovers hidden information with Pluto. It also helps you to empower yourself and transcend with what you uncover and let go.
On June 6th, 2018, Mercury, the planet of communication forms a challenging square to Neptune, the ruler of Pisces while the moon is in foggy and dreamy Pisces. Read things twice with Mercury square Neptune and make that sure your hear people clearly. Deception is very easy with Neptune/Mercury aspects, and it is also very easy to misunderstand what another says. Not to mention people can easily misunderstand what you say, so make sure to be extra clear.
Because the moon is already in Pisces in mid week , people are already very emotional, and the energy is sensitive. Neptune rules the mutable water sign of Pisces, and it squares both mercury and the Sun in Gemini, which means that things could get very confusing. Neptune makes an exact square to the Sun on June 7,2018, so things are extra dreamy. It is excellent for therapeutic work and delving into the creative and the subconscious it is hard for dealing with the real world. Writing, music, and all forms of art are favored. It is not good energy for signing contracts because there are too many blurred lines.
It is time to tap into your dream, manifest, meditate, pray, and heal. it is excellent for chanting, singing, playing music, swimming in the ocean, and taking sea salt baths. This is a week to release, so allow the Neptune oceans to rinse the past actions that no longer serve. Time to cleanse and re-purify. Time to release.
This is a time to do your manifesting work, as Neptune’s influence connects you with your imagination very easily. Be patient with communication, as communication could be more emotionally based. We are all dealing with this together. Lots of letting go, as you plan ahead, and this week gives you a preview.
