Mars Approaching Saturn
While you're out enjoying the Full Moon this weekend, don't forget to check Mars progress toward his July conjunction with Saturn. According to Tiger Windwalker, this is a time when the energy of ambition is highly favored. Conditions also favor careful attention to the impact of choices and actions upon circumstances.
