This is a busy month– retrograde Mars goes direct on June 29th and the official beginning of the Summer season begins on June 20th, which is the Summer Solstice. We’ve gotten so consumed with schedules and meeting deadlines that we’ve forgotten how important it is to kick back and enjoy life. The Summer season is made for doing just that, and to provide you with a reminder and inspiration, your message this month is in the form of a wonderful Summer song. It’s the basis for your own personal soundtrack and it was chosen to match your personality as well as remind you to relax and just be. I encourage you to sing it, hum it, dance to it.
Mars, a ‘personal’ planet, will be going direct by the end of the month. This planet directly affects our daily lives by demonstrating how we best get things done. The retrograde motion of any planet gives us the opportunity to rethink our plans, emotions and actions as we set about achieving our goals. If your plans have recently been hampered, consider that the retrograde may be telling you to re-direct your actions towards reviewing and reworking your strategies so that when the planet, in this case, Mars, goes direct you’ll have the impetus and the dynamic energy to create something more easily than ever.
The Summer soundtrack for all of us is the song, “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6Sxv-sUYtM
