No, I am not getting blasé or numb to these tragedies. Just observing the stars and acknowledging the genius of astrologer, Richard Nolle, who has been saying for many years that planets get STRONGER, not weaker, in their influence on us during their retrograde periods. They are also stronger just before and after the Rx, a time Nolle calls the “Max” period, when a planet slows in its motion through the signs and moves into perigee – its closest physical approach to Earth. Visible planets will also appear much brighter in the sky at perigee.

Makes sense that their influence would be stronger, not weaker.

Nolle has also studied and documented the increase of violent news stories during Mars Rx/Max periods. We are currently in such a period and will be for another month.

I knew that the CURRENT Mars Max/Rx was likely to show up with especially shocking events in the news because of the aspects Mars is making during this time – one in particular.


With both Mars and Uranus moving exceptionally slow – lingering around 23-25 degrees of Scorpio and Aries respectively -- we literally have an almost TWO MONTH LONG QUINCUNX between two of the most violent planets in the sky.

Quincunxes indicate situations of stress to which there is no solution … no adjustment satisfies either party. When that happens between two hotheads like Mars and Uranus – and in two of the signs most associated with violence – we’ve got trouble.

So much has happened during this aspect already … assassination in England, another assassination and then the nightclub tragedy in Orlando, then Istanbul, West Bank, Kenya, Colorado, and now Bangladesh – plus minor (by comparison) violence in Denver, Chicago, San Jose and more … and yet I don’t think say we’ve seen the worst of it yet.

This Mars Rx/Max, so exaggerated by the Uranus quincunx, is also joined in the sky by an ideologically contentious Saturn-Neptune-Jupiter t-square … which becomes a Grand Square each time another planet has moves through the mid-degrees of Gemini. Sun, Venus, and Mercury completed the Grand Square three times in June, near some of the worst violent (and severe weather) events. Moon translates that square once every week, when it travels a mid-Mutable sign.

Moon also translates (hyper-activates) the continuing (though wide) Uranus Pluto square, and the tight Mars-Uranus quincunx. Mercury, Venus, and Sun turned that quincunx into a Yod three times in June, heightening the tensions in the sky, which were reflected in the news.

Am I worried? Yes. Like I said, the aspects aggravating the quincunx and the squares are not over yet, and I doubt the violent news is, either.

Here are the dates that have the most potential to blow up into new violence, IMO:

JULY 2 – The Moon in Gemini turns the philosophically contentious Saturn-Neptune-Jupiter t-square into an even more combative Mutable Grand Square. Then later, on the same day, the Gemini Moon turn the Mars Uranus quincunx into a Yod. Both Uranus and Moon have irreconcilable differences with resentful Mars in Scorpio.

JULY 4 – A powerful and heavily afflicted New Moon infuses the atmosphere with even more emotional and aggressive energy. Pluto opposes the Sun-Moon-Venus-Mercury conjunction. In the chart for Washington, DC (and thus for the United States) every is angle ruled by an afflicted planet. All tangible matters experience stress. Now we have two combative t-squares, one Mutable and one Cardinal. The Mars-Uranus quincunx hasn’t budged and now we have Saturn quincunx the New Moon.

JULY 19 – The Full Moon and Sun t-square Uranus. A very emotional and stressful Full Moon, when impulse control is almost non-existent, especially in imbalanced personalities.

All the Water energies have exploded into floods and severe weather, also a common manifestation of Jupiter-Neptune afflictions.

But Water energy is great for creativity and for helping others. So if you’re inclined toward those activities, you might want to keep the TV off, and go on a news fast for a few weeks. Focus on positive creativity and altruism until Mars and Uranus part ways and Jupiter ditches Saturn and Neptune in early August.


- Mid-Mutable degrees

- Mid-Cardinal degrees; later in the month, late Cardinal degrees

- 22-26 Scorpio or Aries

Astrological Transit

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Astrological transits are one of the main means used in horoscopic astrology to forecast future trends and developments (the other means used is astrological progression, which progresses the horoscope forward in time according to set methods). As its name implies, astrological transits involve a method of interpreting the ongoing movement of the planets as they transit the horoscope. This is most often done for the birth or Natal Chart of a particular individual. Particular attention is paid to changes of sign, or house, and to the aspects or angles the transiting planets make with the natal chart.

A particularly important transit is the planetary return. This occurs when a transiting planet returns to the same point in the sky that it occupied at the moment of a person's birth. What this means is that the planet has completed a whole circuit of the sky, and signifies that a new cycle in the person's life is beginning. The most significant returns are those of the outer planets Jupiter and Saturn. The Jupiter return occurs approximately every 12 years and heralds a new phase of growth and development. The  Saturn return occurs approximately every 30 years, and heralds a new phase in the aging process when new realities and responsibilities must be faced.  For more information you may find it here:
