From the Desk of Leslie Marlar, July ’20
S.T.A.R. Guild will meet online in a group skype call at 6 pm on Tuesday, July 28th. To join us connect with me before then at leslie marlar on skype.
In June we had members from Orlando, Georgia, and the southwest. We did an example of chart synthesis, looked at the continuing Venus in Gemini, the coming Mars in Aries, and looked at the chart of George Floyd and Derek Chauvin.
On our group skype, we can see each other and I can show any chart in my computer. And we no longer look like the people in the progresssive commercial. Next month we’ll synthesize another member’s chart, revisit Venus and Mars, compare the charts of Floyd and Chauvin, and check the planets to note coming UFO news.
Many events happened this month and many are continuing.
We have had protests and lawless events by a variety of people with different motives happening in the streets of many cities since Floyd’s killing in late May. This is continuing and evolving. During this time, Mars has been near Neptune. Mars is trouible and Neptune is imagination and or fraud. Any planet near Mars can activate Mars and cause violence.
Also this period is framed by three eclipses. On June 5th a lunar eclipse at 16 Sagittarius square Mars was followed by a solar eclipse on June 21st at 0 Cancer square Mars, and this will be followed by another lunar eclipse at 13 Capricorn on July 5th. This last time, the Mars square is diminishing. Could this be a decline of the troubles? All of these eclipses happen in important areas in the U.S. chart.
As July begins, Mars is in active Aries and remains there until early January. This can show us more active which suggests that the virus is diminishing. Or it could be trouble from the virus. (Mars and Aries sound like flare ups.) Or it could be more political activism. It may be all of these.
Various political events happened: the release of Bolton’s book, the dropping of the Flynn case, the firing of Brenan of the southern district of New York, polls of voters, and various Supreme Court rulings. I note the eclipses.
Next month we will be watching events surrounding the July 5th eclipse and Mars in Aries. Also Mercury continues in Cancer and Venus continues in Gemini. This carries forward similar events from June events. Saturn going back into Capricorn after a 3 month stay in Aquarius, shows going back to a previous situation. Noel Til calls Saturn, the architect of advance, but it is also the planet of loss. As it rejoins Jupiter and Pluto it connects again with helpers and also extremes.
Also, communicating Mercury is on Trump’s Mercury and Venus in communicating Gemini is in his Sun sign. He’ll be talking and tweeting a lot.
A second new moon in Cancer will happen on the 20th of July, giving us a new start in our emotional llives. And like the new moon eclipse on June 21st, it is a possible new start for the country.
Fairly good days this month are: 1, 10, 14, 15, 16, 22, 24, 28, and 29.
Skype readings are available.
Don’t pull your hair out but hold on to your hat. And join us at STAR Guild.
