 NeptuneCafe is a virtual astrology magazine, one of the best I've seen online. There's something of the feel of coffeehouse conversations, if all the patrons were smart and savvy  
astrophiles on espresso - the think drink. Don't miss Michael Wolfstar's weekly NewsScope column. Guest columns by well known astrologers - well, astrologers well known within the astrological community - can be quite an eye opener to people who think astrology begins and ends with Sun Signs. Who knew astrology could be popular without Sun Signs?

In the industrialized world, why is the U.S. the most violent nation?
The Scorpio Rising chart uniquely explains this tendency, especially when considering the problem as a health issue. The 6th and 12th houses are coming under increased stress. more
1. Saturn octiles (semi-squares) Black Moon Lilith on the 10th, an aspect in effect from the 4th through 15th. Unseen but evident influences may challenge the status quo. This dynamic may manifest as deceptive or fraudulent influences over every day affairs, or as a more metaphysical challenge of understanding and following natural law versus abiding by the dictates of organized religion and other expected behavioral standards. Either way, moral issues are in play. 

2. Mars in defensive Cancer opposes Saturn and Pluto from the 11th to 20th, marking an interval of intense challenges on many levels, including health issues, family dynamics, business affairs, and personal relationships. Political showdowns are inevitable. Choose your battles wisely, and don’t over-react to trivial offenses. Those with prominent placements at 17º to 22º of the cardinal signs are most impacted by this astro-event. Go with the flow as best you can. Find the third way.

3. The Full Moon in Sagittarius takes place on the 17th concurrent with a highly confrontational configuration: Mercury and Mars in Cancer oppose Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Expect emotional tensions to rise along with the filling of the Moon this month. Those who hold onto fixed ideas and plans will be most challenged. Stay flexible and open to new ways of resolving conflicts. Take a break, but be careful while traveling, both near and far. 

4. The Summer Solstice on the 21st (11:55 am EDT) brings some release from recent pressures, especially involving info wars and mindless propaganda (fake news). Now and over the next week is a good time to count your blessings, especially those people and situations that have proven reliable, comforting, and uplifting. The more intuitive types may experience psychic phenomena, such as synchronicity, accurate dreams, and spiritual signs or messages. Look for alternative ways of healing.

5. Uranus becomes octile the U.S. Mars after the 15th, becoming exact on July 17. In the same interval, Pluto is quincunx the U.S. Mars, so both outer planets are providing plenty of celestial fuel for military and economic conflicts. Expect the current hotspots, China and Iran, to grow increasingly intense, with other geopolitical tensions likely to arise. Major activation of the U.S. Mars this summer tends to provoke severe weather-related disasters in metropolitan areas, especially hurricanes.
