Good morrow loves, if you've been wondering why the energy is just... fucking off?! Well there's a lot going on in the sky at the moment but for the sake of our attention spans and my Gemini mind's inability to stick to one topic for very long; we'll be centering on Mars in Virgo in this blog. Mars in Virgo commences on July 10 and ends on August 27 but there's a ton of shit occurring in between, so hold on this will be a time for change. And with so many planets currently retrograding, this chaotic part of the summer will be heavy on the self-reflection/ over thinking theme. On July 11th, Mars will align with the North Node in Taurus at 0 degrees, causing an increase in ambition and determination. This is a good opportunity to concentrate on turning our goals and desires into reality. Tis time to get motivated bitches, you can thank this energy for the large amount of content I've published today! This is a powerful aspect of manifestation energy ya'll, so be sure to stay focused and patient during this period because it could get overwhelming. Remember to self-care and self-reflect, bad bitches are composed bitches, channel that Virgo energy dolls.
Mars will oppose Saturn in Pisces on July 20th, you the one currently retrograding. This suggests that we should pause and reflect on our actions, think before you act because the consequences to our actions will be swift. Taking a break to assess the situation is crucial guys, this is what retrograde season is all about. Granted we normally go through this with a lot less action going on astrologically but what's a chaotic summer without some extraness. On the 22nd of August, Mars will oppose Neptune retrograde in Pisces, so be careful not to let your dreams keep you from reality! And a day later, on the 23rd of August, Mercury will go retrograde. I am quite literally, fucking dreading it. Shout out to my Gemini's and Virgo's, we're about to hate everyone...again. And then Finally on the 24th of August, Mars will trine with Pluto retrograde in Capricorn - this is an opportunity to focus your energy and create something meaningful for yourself! You may have noticed a very Karmic/ Retrograde theme going on during this transit and you'd be right, from the movement of the Nodes to all these planets retrograding in illusion breaking Pisces. Mars in Virgo is about orderly action and with of the rest of the energies going on, it seems we'll be facing our fears loves. Karma is approaching, are you ready? Now, let's see how each zodiac sign will be affected by this transit:
Aries: For you this transit will be affecting your 6th house of health and day-to-day work. You've been racking your mind for quite some time dear Aries. The beginning half of 2023 was awhile lot of energy and nowhere to necessarily focus it...yet. However, during this transit you'll be feeling more motivated to take care of your body and mind and not on your life purpose. This transit will highly affect you, as your home planet is Mars and it will be in your opposing sign of Virgo. While this energy will feel a bit strange at first, it'll help give order to your laser focus. You can't achieve your dreams if your health is lacking and your routine is non existent. Before that purpose can arrive, you dear Aries, need to get your shit together.
For you we recommend the Ayuvrdic Nasal care ritual. Starting new habits, especially health ones is never easy but thats where rituals lend a helpful hand. The more you do something, the more it becomes habit, in more than one way. Within Ayurveda it is believed that the nasal passageways are the entryway for prana, our breath & life force energy, to enter the body via a direct route to the brain. That’s why it is important to keep these vital passageways clean, healthy & clear via the use of neti & nasya in your daily routine. Keeping your body, mind and spirit healthy is no easy task but it is important. You want to achieve your best, you need to be at your best and that starts with putting ourselves and our health first Aries. You can find the Nasal Care Ritual here!
