Mars has already left its footprint on the year. Named after the Roman god of war and mayhem, it means you don't have to look very far to see his handiwork. One would think that the planet's retrograde (Mars turned retrograde on April 17) would have cooled the fiery anger, but retrogrades tend to make this planet worse. That's because the backwards motion switches Mars’s energy from fight to flight. This creates an atmosphere of fear, panic and hysteria. We see it in our politics, we see it in our media and we see it in our society. But Mars also stands for good things as well, like chivalry, honor and heroism — qualities we aspire to embrace. Over the next five weeks, Mars will be winding up its prolonged stay in Scorpio. We've done the ordeals part. Now it's time to witness the transformations that will arise from them.
Pay attention to the signs of good fortune that will be popping up for you this week. These could range from someone helping you out in a pinch to a debt being forgiven. These good turns are to be expected when Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and higher purpose, is traveling through your zodiac sign, and Jupiter's sextile to Venus on July 1 makes it an especially auspicious day to ask for a favor or to make a request. The only thing you have to remember is to pay it forward. Jupiter's maxim is the more you give, the more you'll get in return.
