Astrology Forecast for June 2018: Mars Retrograde

Astrology Forecast for June 2018: Mars Retrograde

In episode 158 of the podcast astrologers Kelly Surtees, Austin Coppock, and Chris Brennan discuss the astrological forecast for June of 2018, which features a prominent Mars retrograde period beginning in Aquarius.

This episode was recorded a couple of weeks ago, just before we all left for the United Astrology Conference in Chicago. The conference was a blast, and we are hoping to record a post-conference recap discussion sometime soon.

We also recorded a live episode of the podcast in front of an audience at the conference, and that will be released as one of the early episodes of June pretty soon as well.

This forecast episode of the podcast is available in both audio and video formats, and you can find links to both below.

  • Great episode! I think the idea of the 8th house as relative to sex, does hold weight in the sense of what greater resource do we have than the ability to come together and create life…something that can transcend your own existence and in that sense is also very mysterious…. I love listening to you guys talk, and always love these forecast episodes you guys have such different personalities it’s fun to listen to.

  • Neptune, Mercury & Sun on the 5th….how about artistic endeavors? Aspects like this usually give me a heads up to get out and do a little photography. My ascendant is 15 Gemini by the way. Another thing that comes to mind with it hitting my ascendant is some sort of beautification activities for myself. Maybe a day of getting a facial, nails done, etc. Or for some, it could actually be cosmetic procedures for beautification.

  • Great episode as usual – I think there’s a strong possibility that the Mars retrograde and south node conjunction will have a voice in the playing out of the UK-EU negotiations. The UK keeps failing to present serious detailed proposals for its departure (Mars severing its ties) from the EU and its last chance to do so is 28 June. A major obstacle is the border in Ireland (a legacy of British imperialism, very south node), which has caught up with London big time. I think Austin may be right: a lot of people raising swords shouting ‘freedom’ in an ultimately futile attempt to win concessions from Brussels…but they’ll be the people who traditionally wore bowler hats, rather than kilts!

  • Wow, that Mars retrograde sounds scary, now. What about natal planets with good vs bad aspects with Mars retro, would that be marginal or important compared to the transit itself ?
