Mercury in a Bad Mood, Jupiter’s Turning Point and New Moon in Leo (Horoscopes: Elon Musk, Liz Truss)

In traditional astrology Mars is known as “the lesser malefic” while Saturn is known as “the greater malefic”. Scary titles but we don’t have to associate them with the stuff of nightmares. Their job is either to screw things up or to show us where the work is needed. Here are the challenges and effort of life.

Jupiter Slowing Down, Sun and Mercury into Leo, J-Lo, Ben Affleck & Chiron (Horoscopes: Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck)

At a universal or personal level look out for turning points that carry the hallmarks of Jupiter, such as rethinks or replanning anything in connection to travel, overseas or at a distance, moving, education or legal concerns.
Also don’t bite off more than you can chew, especially as “over the top” Jupiter is making the semi square to sensible Saturn.

Mars & Mercury New Cycles, Uranus in the Mix & some Wimbledon Synastry (Horoscopes: Calvin Coolidge, Amanda Gorman, Nick Kyrgios, Stefanos Tsitsipas)

Calvin Coolidge (b 4 July 1872) was a staunch supporter of racial equality and women’s rights. Maybe someone should remind The Supreme Court of this fact. I nominate Amanda Gorman for the job … in her powerful poem delivered in her now trademark punchy, “listen to me” style she echoes everything I said last week about power, control and patriarchy. She is Lilith and Pallas come to life, with her 1st House Lilith and Pallas conjunct her Descendant.
