 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. Uranus squares the U.S. Mercury on the 4th, and then repeats two more times: on August 24 and then again in April 2017. The influence of the current phase of this highly polarizing astro-event lasts from June through the end of August. The U.S. Merc represents media reports, opinions, and the desire to persuade and manipulate attitudes. The Uranian influence creates a tumultuous, radicalized political climate characterized by outrageous claims and accusations.

2. Juno enters Scorpio on the 7th and is accented the rest of the month by an opposition to Ceres in Taurus. This combination puts stress on partnership dynamics, especially where money and children are involved. Financial arrangements between former partners and current situations may need to be re-negotiated. Unconditional support for partners and children vies with territorial instincts and potential jealousy, especially from the 9th to 13th, and 21st to 24th.

3. Mars is quincunx Uranus on the 14th but is an exceptionally volatile influence from the 5th through 18th when it squares the U.S. Moon. This tense combination keeps people on edge and willing to make unexpected breaks from normal patterns of behavior. Expect to see a rash of violence from unstable individuals in the news and in your personal sphere. High risk ventures could produce catastrophes or amazing results, depending on conditions. 

4. The Full Moon in Capricorn takes place on the 19th (6:56 pm EDT) and is unusually important politically since it’s aligned with the U.S. Pluto. Expect to witness major power plays, especially at the GOP convention. Enduring political and corporate conflicts reach a climax. With Mars trine Chiron at this time, some individuals may experience spontaneous healing, perhaps a sudden decrease in inflammatory issues using natural remedies.

5. Uranus turns retrograde on the 29th while within ¼ degree of squaring the U.S. Mercury, making this a significant turning point in U.S. politics. Since the U.S. has a Mercury-Pluto opposition, transiting Uranus is in a long-term, anxiety-inducing, highly polarizing phase in American politics. In 2017, Uranus will begin squaring the U.S. Pluto, so the heated divisions we see at the end of July are just the beginning of a major political trend.
