Da 5th episode! It’s the week of June 21-27, 2020 and hosts Stevie Anderson and Kate Santos unpack all the astro shifts we will be experiencing including: the Solar Eclipse in Cancer, the end of Venus Retrograde, and Mars moving into Aries. 

We start off the week with the powerful New Moon Solar Eclipse at ZERO degrees Cancer on June 21st. What a way to kick off Cancer season! Eclipses are always full of surprises and astrologically they can move us via unexpected twists and turns. Cancer energy is focused on our surroundings both physically and emotionally. Crabs like to feel comfortable wherever they are. The hosts chat about the psychological yet hilarious thriller, What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? (1962). The film is centered around a twisted sibling relationship, starring famed rivals Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Through their bizarre home space we see what can happen when we descend into madness. This eclipse will have us all reconsidering all the company we keep. After 40 days, Venus stations direct on June 25th. The Retrograde is over! Gemini Venus is asking us to say what is on our mind and to not be shy about what we want, like the characters in Tangerine (2015). This film is a comedy-drama (hello, Gemini vibes) and was shot completely on iPhones (Gemini inventiveness at work!) and follows two BFF transgender sex workers on a frenzied romp around Hollywood. Mars, our planet of action and self, is entering Aries, the sign it rules over. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and expresses the Martian themes of fighting for oneself and channeling the warrior within. Previous CherryPick’s Choice Da 5 Bloods (2020) directed by Spike Lee, is a war film that goes beyond the call of duty.  In pure Aries fashion, this film doesn’t hold back. The film effectively expresses Aries Mars energy by putting it all out there, whether it makes you comfortable or not—it’s all about the authenticity.
