Mars & Saturn together in Western Sky

When the Sun hits its Northern Solstice on June 20 (2008), an important alignment is also developing between Mars and Saturn. Interestingly, Saturn is still in close proximity to the location of its significant alignment with Regulus and seven other bodies in August of 2007. During that alignment, all of the conjoining planets also made a trine (120 degrees) with Pluto. Saturn is still roughly in a trine with Pluto now as Mars approaches.

This alignment comes as a completion to the alignment of August 2007. The August 2007 alignment included all of the inner planets, except for Mars. The exact Saturn-Mars conjunction happens on July 10 (at 11:12 a.m. Pacific) as Saturn soon moves away from it trine with Pluto toward its next important alignment--an opposition with Uranus.

This Saturn-Mars alignment draws our attention toward how actions play into the dynamics of situation. We stand at a place of opportunity to recognize the current shape of our karma and how we build it. The shape itself is neither good nor bad. However, its form results directly from how we participate in all of our relationships. What we recognize presently is very important, both to where we are and to the place we'll soon arrive.

Blessings for your Solstice Journey!
