28 JUNE 2016, ARIES
Mars, the ruler of Aries has strong influence over this Quarter Moon in Aries. Good news is that he has a major shift on 30 June when he finally moves Direct after being Retro since 17 April. Many have been waiting for this moment! The 10-week retrograde involved a lot of soul searching, tough love or passions so deep they were confronting. Relationships have been getting an overhaul and we still might need to brave another fight to stand up for what feels most true to self, yet at least we’re on our way out of the woods. Mars heading forward again helps matters greatly. Venus also brings a beautiful energy at this Quarter Moon. She’s in a lovely trine alignment with Mars helping the warrior within each of us to relax a little. This Venus-Mars alignment only gets better in days to come, even into the second week of July and helps bring recovery and renewed confidence that all we’ve been fighting for is worth it. Yet right now, we might need to muster up strength to get ourselves over the finish line with something important, even if we feel we’ve had enough. This Quarter Moon helps propel a second wind, so keep going. It will be worth it!
