The Bonfire of the Good Girl
I do not swallow down words anymore
See the flame in my eyes.
Feet rooted. Hips tilted.
I am a woman who burns.

. . . a lunar eclipse on July 16, insists that we really look at what nurtures us, versus what we have to pare away. . .
Solar and Lunar Eclipses occur when the Earth, Sun and Moon align at the Moon’s nodal axis, usually four times a year, during New and Full Moons, respectively. . . .
January 20: Total Lunar Eclipse at 0° Leo highlights our need to be seen and appreciated. When the light returns let your desires be known and share your best self. Enjoy the limelight. excerpt Sandra Pastorius © Mother Tongue Ink 2018 from W’M 2019 pg 22Capricorn (Earth): family, history, dreams, traditions. We need mountains to climb and problems to solve. The Moon represents our capacity to feel or empathize with those around us and within our own soul as well. It awakens our intuitive and emotional body. Mars is our sense of “Get Up and GO!” It is the capacity to take action and do; it represents being in motion. It can also affect our temperament.

This day challenging Moon/Mars aspects instigate irritability, willfulness, anger, hurry, a competitive or contrary attitude. Cure: exercise, chop wood, take a brisk walk, acknowledge desires or frustrations, and then finesse that argument. Exercise awareness.
Mercury: communication, travel, thought
Cancer (Water): Family, home, emotional awareness, nourishment. We need time in our shell and with our familiars. all excerpts adapted from Heather Roan Robbins’ WM 2018 pg 228 & 15-17 & WM 2019 pg 14

excerpt by Heather Roan Robbins—Visit our Astology Connection page for the complete daily predictions for the week and an overview of the Year for the current SunSign. The mood is slow and emotional. If life gets hectic, sit still, if just for a minute. Summer’s heat and five planets retrograde ask us to take our time, think through everything we’re doing. Catch up and reconnect with our past, work on old projects, and handle life right here right now. Tend to the woes of the world, and there are so many right now. Deal with what’s already on the plate, and that’s a lot this week the major planetary patterns and process. . . . Mercury, Jupiter, Chiron, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, all now appear to head backwards against the zodiac.
. . . On January 13, June 16, Sept 21, Jupiter (abundance) and Neptune (water) square exactly, each strong in their own sign, though we feel it all year long. The pragmatic effect is uneven water, a surplus of water, floods, in some places, droughts in others, exacerbating climate change. Jupiter and Neptune were opposite in the great Mississippi flood of Dec 1926, square at the New England flood of March 1936 (exact during the winter before- whose great snow melt caused the flood), and trine during hurricane Katrina. Be careful out there. The Sun and Venus are now in watery Cancer and ask us to stay in touch with our emotions, . . . Last week’s solar eclipse and this coming Tuesday’s lunar eclipse catalyze these changes, and people need support. . . . Mercury and Mars now run close together in Leo, which can add bravado to our thinking and hyperbole to our arguments. . . . Mars in Leo also speaks of the protective heart, and can bring kind of swift and dramatic responses to perceived problems. . . .as Mercury is retrograde a lot of old dirt comes to the surface, but we may not have all the facts. As the weekend begins, an upbeat, outspoken, outdoors-oriented Sagittarius Moon trine and the Mercury Mars conjunction instigates freewheeling, funny, and sometimes brutally honest interactions, . .
