Goddess Alive Radio Podcast welcomes Astrologer Mary Lomando back for an Astrology update on the Mars Squares and Retrograde that will be affecting our late Summer and into the Fall. Mary discusses the impact of Mars and how it is playing out in our lives.
This year has included a lot of challenging Astrology! During the year 2020, war-like Mars entered the fiery sign of Aries on 6/27/20 and will remain there until 1/7/2021. This is highly unusual as it normally stays in a sign for six weeks, not six months. Mars is also in its closest proximity to the Earth now (called perigree) and clearly visible to the night sky. Astrologically, this means that Mars is highly active in the collective psychology.
Mary is also offering a NEW online course, The Mars Code, exploring Mars in Aries and how it shows up in your natal chart. An Astrological chart and personal session with Mary is included in this course! Sign up here
Tune in for another deep dive on the current Astrology and how these intense energies may affect us personally, nationally, and globally.
