We’re traveling to the beat of different astral drums this week, and while the forward-motion-nothing-is-retrograde cadence of daily life continues to feel like a relief, adjusting to the new flow may still require effort, especially if things just aren’t going the way you would like them to. If you’re feeling frustrated with the pace, try to keep in mind that it is only four weeks since the retrograde wave of 2014 receded; and when you consider how short a month really is, it’s not at all surprising that some of us are still having a hard time finding our stride. But that’s not the only reason the rhythms of the regular routines are a little out of sync. As soon as the six-month planetary review period ended, two planets shifted Signs, as well as Elements: Jupiter entered Leo, a Fixed Fire Sign, just moments before Mars moved into Scorpio, a Fixed Water Sign...

Mars is in single-minded Scorpio all month, adding ambition, consistency, stamina and toughness in all actions. Watch out for obsessive behavior and self-destructive impulses, but with a worthy goal in sight, much can be accomplished. On the 9th, Mars activates the April 28 Solar Eclipse in Taurus, an eventful date likely to bring significant historical developments for the U.S and in geopolitical hotspots...

One of my dreams came true when I was in the 8th grade. I won a horse! I was a 4-H member in my community and participated in all the projects. That year one of the local farmers who raised Tennessee Walking Horses announced that he was giving a 6-month-old colt to the most outstanding 4-H Club member in the county that year. Well, I loved horses, read all the novels in the library, studied books, and listened to grown-ups whenever they talked about horses. So I got to work - very, very hard. I don't remember all the things I did but I WON...

You need to neuter your animal, right? I mean, that’s just basic: there are too many unplanned pregnancies, too many euthanasias because of that, and you need to be responsible and just do this. Right?...
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: When is the right age to neuter? Used to be 6 months. Then it was 3 pounds. They say mammary cancer is more prevalent in unaltered females. But, young neutering makes dogs taller. (Llamas and horses, too.) So, what is the right answer?

from Steven Forrest's "The Inner Sky"
"...Ten planets, each molded into a “bit” by a sign and a house. Five aspects weaving those “bits” together in five different ways. Throw in rulerships, retrogradation, the moon’s nodes. Add a concentration of planets above the horizon, or in the east..."

I think there should be a Mars ritual, this week, so we can clearly mark the end of its eight-month-plus transit through Libra, a trek that began on December 7, 2013 and finally ends on Friday, July 25, as well as delineate the beginning of its seven-week transit through Scorpio, a journey that begins on July 25 and ends on September 13. I’m not sure what a “Bye-Bye Mars In Libra” ritual would look like, although I’m certain just about every Libra would (without a moment’s hesitation) create an interpretative dance expressing both grief and relief. And given that all of us have Mars somewhere in our personal astrological chart, that dance would not be solo for long—multitudes are likely to be grateful for this shift in perspective, a shift that moves us away from what has for many been an unrelenting focus on personal partnerships. ..
