Beautiful beings of earth, Over the last week we have arrived into new energies that will carry us through the end of the year. I’d like to take a moment to deconstruct and outline these aspects so that we may move in harmony with the essence of these alignments. It is my belief that astrology teaches us of the delicate dance between Humankind and Nature.
The planets do not impose their forces upon us, in other words, they don’t “force” us into anything – our free will is very much preserved. In fact, the challenge of life lies within the truth that we are very much responsible for our own personal growth. Similarly, nor do we want to “use” these energies for personal gain, but rather come Into a graceful cocreative union with the energies.
The stars, just like any other element, want to teach, but they also want to dance. Enter the dance as you would with any partner. Attentive. Humble. Respectful. Willing to listen, willing to sometimes follow and sometimes lead, and watch the magic unfold. Sacred union with the stars is a magical journey indeed.
Now, an introduction to a potent grouping of aspects any student of astrology would want to be familiar with for the remainder of the year 2020. This is the battle of the square between Mars in Aries and our three planets in Capricorn: Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn.
Mars in Aries: The planet of war. Raw primal life force. Attack and conquer energy. Burning desire. Enthusiasm to go after and experience. Hot, firey, passionate. Freedom fighting energy. Independent. Ignited into fight mode if held down or restricted by any external force. In Square to (an aspect that suggests tension or conflict) Jupiter Pluto and Saturn conjunct in Capricorn: Extreme levels of authority and control. Government. Rules, regulations, and restrictions. Patriarchal systems of order. Mandates. Power. Responsibility. Conventional (often outdated) outlooks and tradition.
The conversation between these elements suggests that each soul is being put to an endurance test. We are experiencing these aspects collectively on the macro scale, however keep in mind these aspects will influence us all individually as Mars will square Jupiter Pluto and Saturn in a different area of our charts individually.
On the Macro Scale: The collective will experience accelerated Mars driven energies from now until the end of 2020. Squares to Jupiter the expander are explosive (the first days of this aspect we saw the explosions in Beirut). These energies are expansive, and larger than life. Mars to Pluto (first square is exact August 13th) deals with issues of power and the misuse of it, exposure of deeply buried secrets, sexuality, violence, death and rebirth. Finally, Mars to Saturn provokes frustration, restriction, blockages, and limitation. This aspect can feel like the end of illusion and the confrontation with reality. This relationship illustrates a courageous journey against dark and oppressive forces – I keep getting the vision of a dove beating its wings to free itself from black netting. While the dove represents the true nature of all beings – peace and pureness of heart- this is also a call into the collective to awaken the peaceful warrior within.
There is no denying that we are at war with a special kind of darkness. Mars lights the torch and sounds the call for a chapter in history we won’t ever forget.
On the micro level: (How to work with these energies in your individual chart): This arena describes the battle between our personal will and the obstacles that stand in the way.
Step one: find transiting mars in your chart – What house is mars transiting, and what aspects is mars making to personal or outer planets? This describes the seat of the ego, pure unbridled desire, where your soul is feeling driven, alive, impulsive, impatient, passionate, and firey. This is where you want results and freedom.
Step two: Locate where Jupiter Pluto and Saturn are transiting your chart by house. This house and the areas of life it governs are experiencing a tremendous amount of concentrated energy at the moment, and have been for some time. However, these energies are likely to feel challenging, limiting, or overwhelming in some way because of the aspects from Mars. This area might bring up a burden, and is likely to require extreme levels of focus, energy, transformation, determination, and hard work. This is the area where you are stepping into power for the long term. At it’s worst, this area may be stirring up old karma, or oppression from an external authority source. It might also feel like it’s taking up a lot of “space” in your life, as Mars tugs your impulses in another direction. Over coming months, Mars will criss cross in this space, igniting and illuminating our drive, while also asking: how bad do you want it? How hard will you fight? Will you remain true to yourself?
Meanwhile, squares to Pluto accelerate us into a deep dive of scorpionic transformation. Ancestral trauma, wounding, and confrontation is asked of many during these times. Warrior time now. Many will find themselves dedicated to facing these shadows and taking personal responsibility to heal darkness within the energetic matrix spanning back into the distant past, childhood, and/or previous lifetimes.
Important dates of exact aspect:
First Pass MARS SQUARE TO:
Saturn 8/23- 8/28
Also take note of these incredibly important dates:
Jupiter direct: September 12th
Saturn direct: September 28th
Pluto direct: October 4th
(These will be a green light for proceedings with projects, career moves, power moves, launches, deep dives, change, mandates, and events.)
I will be speaking more on these aspects continuously as we move through the rest of the year. In love, service, and gratitude, Alex

Awakening the Rainbow Warrior. By Adeon Asfar
Full Moon luminary, shadows in the night, heralding the age of Aquarian power, no I’m not standing alone.
From the eye of the storm I am stepping out reborn, frequency rising, the old slave way it’s dying.
Disruption in the field of the world, but my higher mind is smiling because Rainbow warriors are finding the mercurian reminder with a message from God.
Our plan is divine, and it’s found deep inside, it goes beyond space and time. You know it and show it yes, Destiny is calling you.
Dismantling my mind, with the truth being spoken, jaguar stalking and my fears being broken with my pride at my side. We stride through a concrete jungle, where anyone can hide from the old world eye.
Wearing masks, aviators and a hood of vines, sacred medicine for the people that you can’t deny.
Crown of heaven exploding, rainbow body unfolding into a new dream time where the eagles fly high, through an endless infinite eternal sky
But the pressures on and on and on, madness and rebellion living side by side, awakening my soul to take the wheel and drive.
As I witness my reflection in your eyes so blue, green and brown, golden simmering my passion in you. I see your magnificence, love and beauty let loose.
Lady Venus walking through my front door, no boundaries can hold her, she is here to adore and explore how deep we can go, but were going to need to let go.
Old rules, old games, old lies, insane, shedding skin, shedding shells, bringing love into hell.
Uranian Avatar, game on! Next level awakening sending glitches through the AI, watching the watcher from on high, we will be breaking through to you. Yes the Matrix is true.
Rainbow Warriors standing strong, in the eye of storm where we come from. We have come, and we’re not done.
The battle has just begun, for the mind and the hearts of all as one. No body gets left behind, we just come back through from the other side.
Dreamtime walkers, remote viewer watchers, reality weavers, star seed beamers. Let your light shine.
And everything is going to be fine, and no matter what, enjoy the ride opening up your love through hearts divine.

CANCER AT 28 DEGREES PASSAGE FROM: “Inside Degrees” by Ellias Lonsdale – great book to add to your astrology collection!! INTRO GRAPHICS BY @_SWA_YATRA_ Intro music brought to you by ASCENDANT, track is Sub-Orbital Forest, Available on Spotify 🙂
Eclipses are gateways that tend to mark meaningful steps in our journey like a series of celestial “bookmarks” in our story. Often the closing and opening of an era, these unpredictable portals seem suspended in time and space, equipped with their tell-tale “eclipse essence” -a vaporous veil of subtle magic and the eerie whisperings of life beyond the material.
This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse comes to us in the sign of Sagittarius – the harbinger of highest truth and wisdom. The Sag moon opposes the Sun conjunct Venus in Gemini, bringing Venus retrograde themes to the forefront with dizzying intensity. This entire retrograde has had our minds criss-crossing in a disorienting search for truth, and this full moon may mark the climax of these energies. A square to Mars and Neptune in Pisces reveals a crisis of illusion, emotions, and a scattering of so many little details. A square to asteroid Ceres gives the chart the dull ache of a heart mourning separation and the changing of a season, spiritually seasick on the swells of the shift as the collective confronts the toxicity of its ethos.
Macro- Micro, we ride the tides of our own incoming realizations. We may feel like shielding our eyes from the onslaught of energies, caught between the cross fire of the mind and heart- Where to go from here?
This eclipse is about the bravery to travel the uncharted no matter how hard the road. Ignoring the ego mind with it’s billion and one white lies and tapping into the gut-level root of ONE TRUTH. Feel it, love it, speak it, KNOW it like the well trodden trails of a private forest. Because it is yours. Sag is brutally honest, unapologetic, and guided by an internal optimism anchored in trust. A full moon with a full dose of truth that hits like an arrow to the chest- a thorn dripping with medicine for the times, tonic for the growing soul.
Notice where you are now in this moment and see the truth of why you are there. Notice where we are now in this moment and see the truth of why we are here. Let the wisdom of that moment speak right to you like a prayer. This is the journey.
Attention! This is a moon with a MESSAGE!🧐 This approaching New Moon has our minds and hearts abuzz in the stimulating and questioning sign of Gemini. A square to dreamy Neptune suggests that clarity and direction around a situation is desired, and flighty Gemini can have us stirring impatiently and skeptically around the future.
With so much mutable energy, the path ahead seems to shapeshift and beckon with thievish delight, forming so many dancing mirages in the sands of time. This lunation marks a pit stop in our Venus Rx journey, as mercury, the ruler of this moon, joins Venus in her walk through the stars.
💡Mercury is the cosmic messenger and will likely drop us a line in the form of an important conversation or issuing of new information within the next few days. Similarly, we may feel prompted to voice or communicate things that have been on our mind for the last few weeks. ⇠
HOW TO BALANCE THESE ENERGIES: ⇢ Gemini can get so lost in the mind that it can become detached from the heart and soul of a situation. Reach for the polarity – Sagittarius – for balance and grace. Sagittarius has been on the quest long enough to know that things always unfold the way they need to in the long term. Sagittarius KNOWS, while Gemini thinks, questions, and debates. ZOOM OUT of a situation, get the wisdom of an eagle eye view, and trust that despite all the semi-agitating mental details, there is method to the madness.
What is meant for you will be yours. Some things need to be said. There is a higher order, and a higher path than all this may suggest- something more stable, dignified, and true. (Also remember!- that we are still on the retrograde quest – we are still re-evaluating what the truth even is).
Sagittarius believes in luck, abundance, and fate – tap into the message and magic of the Archer and remember that all good things take time and the universe has your back. ❤️

Wow guys, has this week been intense or what?
Ever since Pluto went retrograde on April 25th, we have been veiled under the spellbinding effects of this planet’s influence. When a planet stations, it sends a “pulse” of its planetary personality into the collective, and Pluto is INTENSE.
Pluto is the King of Karma, Lord of the Underworld, the great transformer of the Zodiac. His lessons are deep, penetrating, and relentless, bringing shadows and impurities to the surface for purification. We are shedding, molting, renewing, refining, and emotionally processing on incredibly deep levels. If you’ve had your shadows handed to you on a silver platter, you’ve been dining with Pluto, and his instructions are clear: CHANGE.
Confront. Evolve. Discard. Purge. Detox. Regenerate. Some things will die, while others will transform and surprise you with their new potential on the other side.
A Scorpio Full Moon on the 7th is the climax of this powerful Plutonian portal. This is your Sun Dance, your shamanic initiation for healing, your death rebirth process. This is a time of karmic retribution, peeling back the layers, and letting go.
Pluto exposes secrets, power dynamics, and toxicity. Unhealthy dynamics can be stripped down, exposed, and discarded. Pluto is not known for pardons for the ego, and each and every soul is being asked to face the deepest parts of themselves with honesty, humility, and a willingness to transform.
Purge the poison, cleanse the shadows, and revel in the opportunity to greet change with grace. Harness this Phoenix moment. Powerful week with massive healing potential. Xx
