ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF JUL 4-10 2022




MON JUL 4

Over the weekend, we had Mars in the final degrees of Aries, seeing some things come to a head around pinpointing our desires. The week kicks off with the Moon in Virgo, squaring Venus in Gemini, trine Uranus and opposite Neptune. This can see a lot of multitasking, with some pleasant distractions in between duties and things that need to get done. There can be some changes ringing in, and routines can be altered for one reason or another, perhaps to accommodate social occasions. There can be communications or short distance travels to keep up with. The Virgo Moon is detail oriented and focused on work or getting things done, but there can be a lot of daydreaming, creative reverie, or other distractions going on that make routines a little more pleasant. This evening see’s some shifts, the first one being the asteroid Pallas, moving into communicative Gemini at 8:16 PM PST, which emphasizes strategizing and planning around communications. Next, Mars enters Taurus at 11:04 PM PST, where Mars settles into whatever desires it set in it’s sights while in impassioned Aries, and focuses on slow and steady gains. Mercury, the planet of communications, heads into sensitive Cancer at 11:25 PM PST, which encourages more softness and vulnerability in communications, and makes it easier to connect from the heart, break the ice, or go beyond surface level in communications. So late tonight see’s some significant shifts settling in. 


TUES JUL 5

The Moon in Virgo conjunct the Part Of Fortune this morning while squaring Mercury, trine Pluto, and opposite Neptune can see some communications call our attention and there can be some fortunate occurrences. This can see some powerful exchanges, and we can be drawn to unusual people, situations or subjects. These maths can be disarming and can see walls melting between others. The Moon later goes on to oppose Jupiter, and this can see floodgates open in certain ways where details are shared or uncovered or we learn more about the inner workings or nitty gritty details going on behind something or someone. The Moon enters partnership oriented Libra at 3:25 PM PST, seeing a focus on harmonizing with others or forming consensus around collaborations or getting on the same page as others. This can see some expansive trends unfolding in regards to social or interpersonal connections. With Mars and Mercury both settling into their new placements, today can reflect these energetic shifts and change of emphasis, and we too can be acclimatizing to the energetic shifts. There can be an air of optimism around personal, social, creative or business connections, relationships or endeavors. 


WED JUL 6

The Moon in Libra squares the Sun in Cancer, trines Venus in Gemini, opposes Jupiter and Chiron. There can be pleasant things unfolding that can bring enthusiasm, there is also an air of vulnerability as emotions can be closer to the surface where perhaps they were more deeply submerged. There can be an emphasis here on getting more comfortable or cozy within certain exchanges or interactions, and with Jupiter in Aries, there can be something new about this, whether it’s letting new people into the fold, or relating to people in new ways, or getting more familiar and settled in to new dynamic situations. Mercury semisquare Uranus can see us venturing outside our comfort zone somehow when it comes to vulnerability, sharing, or letting our guard down in communications. This can see people relating in new ways or having illuminating conversations where we reveal more of our inner selves, but in lighthearted, playful ways that are comfortable, not claustrophobic or suffocating. The Moon trine Venus and opposite Jupiter can see a focus on pleasure, enjoyment, and opening up communications more freely, in the very least , there can be enthusiasm around new connections or agreements being reached around familiar ones. There can be a lot going on as well, but talks or communications can be abundant and flowering. There can be something a bit vulnerable about this, or there is a lot of sensitivity and empathy present as new understandings or insights are formed around social or interpersonal connections.


THURS JUL 7

The Moon in Libra is still trine Venus, but also trine Saturn and square Pluto. This can see new bridges being formed socially or interpersonally, and some powerful transformations can be underway or there are some intense or compelling undercurrents or pulls around this. The Moon goes on to oppose Mars, which can see a lot of passion and drive, perhaps some conflicts of will or interest to manage. Perhaps it’s just enthusiasm or excitement, but there may be a need to let off steam through being physically active or engaged in some other kind of energetically engaging pursuit. Certain things can be getting more solid between ourselves and others or new agreements are being reached or a consensus is being formed. There can be something spicy feeling or exciting about this, or there can be a subtle competitive feeling or tensions around areas where our will and those of others may be at odds, but there is a resolve and determination that refuses to give up on something we feel compelled to do, or interactions we feel compelled to engage in. Something is finding it’s feet here and growing roots, whether others agree with it or support it or not. The Moon enters uncompromising, do or die Scorpio at 10:15 PM PST, seeing a strong will around things we feel deeply about. 


FRI JUL 8

The Moon trine’s Mercury in Cancer while opposing Mars, and this can see conversations that really get to the heart of the matter and cut to the chase. These configurations are no longer content with surface level interactions, and there can be some intense exchanges or instinctual pulls under the surface driving things. These maths can be compelling, and there can be tensions under the surface and a desire to crack the ice around it. With the Moon in deep diving Scorpio opposite Mars in Taurus, desires can be strong, and perhaps deeply buried, but the Moon trine Cancer gently compels things to the surface. There is a lot of sensitivity and empathy here, and emotional connections or bonds can be forming. The Moon quincunx Jupiter can see an unusual degree of openness or candidness. The Moon goes on to oppose Uranus, suggesting surprising insights, shocks, changes or revelations, perhaps some big reveals, or revealing conversations. There can be something liberating or freeing about letting things out, or being more open. It can feel like a cathartic emotional release.


SAT JUL 9

The Moon in Scorpio is trine the Sun in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces, while squaring Saturn, opposite Uranus, and sextile Pluto. This can see some powerful undercurrents and changes going on under the surface. We can be going with the flow of the current, and the lunar square to Saturn shows a need for resilience and tenacity. Perhaps this has to do with overcoming inhibitions, outdated rules, boundaries or restrictions that we may have become all to accustomed to being there. In other cases, this can represent a boundary, perhaps even a fierce protection of whatever compels us, lest intruders try to interfere, rain on our parade, or get in the way. In either case, there can be some changes unfolding that can feel cathartic, natural, compelling, and medicinal to the soul. A lunar sextile to Pluto and trine to Neptune dissolves barriers and encourages deep contact, or in the very least can see things impact us at profound levels as we can be more sensitive to subtle cues or nuance in the environment. There can also be much to reflect on, and in certain cases, the day can be focused inward on private reflections and deep inner changes going on under the surface that impact certain dynamics. There can be something positive unfolding to look forward to.


SUN JUL 10

The Moon enters adventurous and philosophical Sagittarius at 1:34 AM, where it forms a trine to Jupiter. This can see an emotionally freeing atmosphere, with an air of expansiveness, enthusiasm and excitement. There is a lot of generosity in today’s configurations as well, and with the Sun conjunct Mercury in Cancer, sextile Uranus and trine Neptune, things unfolding can touch us deeply or be emotionally enriching to the the soul, and there can be surprising changes or revelations that accompany this. It’s emotionally very freeing. These maths can see people getting more comfortable with certain feelings that they may have previously been at odds with or fought to suppress. It can feel healing and liberating to reach a more authentic and comfortable relationship to whatever this is, and there can be a candidness and honesty here that boosts morale and encourages others to also free themselves in this way in turn. The Moon trines Chiron as well, seeing emotional courage and a lot of empathy. Entering new territory emotionally or otherwise can feel exciting and even therapeutic, and the Moon/Jupiter contact suggests a bogus learning journey and an enthusiasm around all things that expand the consciousness and mental, emotional and spiritual horizons. Certain bridges can be becoming more solid over the coming days, while in some ways, others are naturally dissolving.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF JUN 27-JULY 3 2022




MON JUN 27

We begin the week with the Moon in Gemini conjunct Mercury, square Neptune and Juno and trine Saturn. This can see a busy and disciplined energy, while there may be some confusion, uncertainty or misunderstandings interpersonally, especially as Neptune slows down and will station retrograde tomorrow. The Moon later goes on to sextile Mars, which gives more energy, drive, and determination to focus on the tasks at hand and get things done in spite of potentially distracting elements. There can be a lot of communications to manage. With Uranus sextile Juno, relationships can be points of illumination and can be changeable, exciting and very independent.  With the Sun in security oriented Cancer squaring Jupiter in Aries, this can see a challenge to integrate new ways of creating security or dealing with the emotions. New chapters are being started, and with Uranus sextile Juno and conjunct the North Node, fated changes are underway. Relationships that aren’t fostered on mutual independence, individuality and shared values could be a bit challenged, or call for overhaul, revision or adaptability. Relationships in general can be points of growth spurts or challenge people out of their comfort zones, which can be a catalyst to emotional growth. The Moon goes void of course at 7:38 PM PST, seeing a good time to reflect prior to the energy of the New Moon in Cancer tomorrow.


TUES JUN 28

The moon enters comfort seeking Cancer at 4:53 AM PST, where it conjuncts the Sun, and opposes Jupiter. This can see some big feels, and with Venus sextile Jupiter, optimism can be felt around social, interpersonal, financial or creative endeavors. Mars sextile Saturn see’s a driven and ambitious energy. Look to the area of your whole sign natal chart ruled by Cancer to see what area you are making way for a new beginning and writing a new chapter. The New Moon is exact at 7 degrees Cancer at 7: 52 PM PST. This decan of Cancer is ruled by the 2 of cups in the tarot. This decan speaks of mutually nurturing relationships, where neither party is depleted, but both are nurtured, enhanced and exalted into their highest forms and potential selves. Both are complete in and of themselves, and come together in mutual vibrational synnergy, complimenting the gifts, strengths and weaknesses of the other. The Moon is in her dignity here, and this can bring to light buried hungers. Neptune stations retrograde today, which can see some confusion around a buried but deeply cherished dream, ideal, or fantasy, with Neptune sextile Pluto. With Mars also tightly squaring Pluto, to be exact in a couple days time, desires can be strongly felt, and there is a relentlessly driven energy that is laser focused on it’s goal. This can also see compulsivity, or something about our goals or desires can both hypnotically entice, frighten and intimidate us. This energy is intended to facilitate deep transformations for completely new chapters. The New Moon squaring Jupiter, while Venus is sextile Jupiter can see a great deal of optimism, expansiveness, courage, and motivation to clear the decks and pioneer into new, adventurous territory. This can be socially, interpersonally, creatively, or financially. Certain emotions can come to the surface or be a point of focus at this New Moon. 


WED JUN 29

The Moon in Cancer still conjunct the Sun, sextile’s Uranus today while squaring Chiron in Aries and trine Juno. This can see some surprising revelations, or certain feelings or instincts can surface or be more difficult to ignore. There can be a nervous excitement here, but also some vulnerability as there may be something new or unprecedented going on. There can be a drive here to take a calculated risk emotionally or something can come up that can be illuminating or exciting, but perhaps catch us off guard. There’s an element of surprise and the unexpected here. As the day progresses, the Moon forms a sextile to Neptune which can see ESP highly active, and the sensory perceptions highly attuned. This can lower defenses or dissolve barriers or there may simply be a lot to take in and reflect upon. Ideals are highly activated, and this math is highly sensitive to nuance. Jupiter conjunct Chiron gives more courage and adventurousness around issues that previously made us feel weak or vulnerable, and this can be very conducive to healing. The evening see’s the Moon squaring Mars and opposite Pluto. This can see some underlying intensity, and passions can border on frustration, or there can be a thick tension underlying certain interactions that catalyzes movement or taking some kind of action. Desires can be intensely felt, and there can be a drive to make something happen.


THURS JUN 30

The Moon spends the majority of today in Cancer until early evening, seeing a build up of tension and drive around things that may be deeply buried or sublimated (Moon trine Neptune and opposite Pluto). This shadow must be openly confronted and integrated. With the Moon sextile Pallas, this can see planning and strategy in play around a cherished hope or dream. The Moon enters Leo at 5:40 PM PST, seeing courage and optimism build. Here, the Moon trines Jupiter, seeing intense drives or strong pulls feel more comfortable to come to the surface and find an outlet. This can see the weekend begin on a fun seeking, brave and optimistic note, making it easier to be warm, expressive, playful and to take some positive risks. Mars and Pluto perfect their square tonight and tomorrow at 27 degrees. This can see strong, buried drives and passions seek an integration.


FRI JUL 1

The Moon in Leo sextile’s Venus, trine’s Jupiter, and Chiron, going on to square Uranus. Needless to say, this math looks exciting and fun, and there may be some very encouraging trends. There’s a more daring energy available here and there can be encouragement around things that maybe have been a bit intimidating to us. Mars and Pluto are in a perfected square at 27 degrees today, which can see repressed drives and shadows come to the surface demanding an outlet or seeking acknowledgement, expression, and integration into the conscious will. These maths can see people feeling less held back and constrained by fears, insecurity or inhibition. There can be some celebrations going on as well, or in the very least, something to feel very happy about, with the Moon in playful Leo making such gorgeous aspects to Venus and Jupiter. Some very pleasant surprises can also be a part of the picture. These maths are pretty spicy, creative, fun, and even flirtatious. It’s a let your hair down, “yolo” kind of vibe that can feel very freeing and encouraging around things that there was maybe some fear around. With the Sun squaring Chiron amidst all this, there is still some vulnerability, but these maths are encouraging and can cause people to enjoy the challenge of being more playful, courageous and brave. Overall, this looks to be a pleasantly exciting day, with some unexpected but perhaps very happy surprises. 


SAT JUL 2

The Moon in Leo opposes Saturn, sextile’s Mercury, squares Uranus and trine’s Mars and Chiron today. There may be a bit of inhibition, or it’s possible that certain boundaries are being laid down while other avenues are being opened up. Another way of articulating this math is an “extended release”, or a controlled release. If something has been buried, denied or sublimated a long time, it carries quite a lot of power, so perhaps there’s a lot of restraint going on in the midst of what’s also a motivated push forward. This is another unpredictable and surprising day. The lunar/Saturn opposition can also see an unexpected retreat or halt after a brave or courageous move, or some other blockages that may cause some temporary doubts or inhibitions, but the Moon in Leo trudges onward like a brave little toaster. The Moon/Mercury aspect can see it easier to express the feelings or even the affections, but conversely, it’s important to have a sense of others boundaries and try not to ignore warning signs that something may not get a desired response, or in the very least, an instantaneous one. On the other hand, this can see a forward motion in certain dynamics or initiatives with a simultaneous halt on others, or a need to balance responsibility with fun, enjoyment or pleasure. 


SUN JUL 3

The Moon enters detail oriented Virgo at 5:31 AM PST, squaring Venus in Gemini. This can see an evaluation of priorities, projects, or relationships and a sort of “taking stock”. There can be a nervous perfectionism to this configuration, and there can also be a motivation to be of service to others somehow. The Moon in Virgo squaring Venus can also see some critical evaluations of ourselves as well, or a desire to make improvements. The Moon goes on to sextile the Sun, shedding light on problem areas or things that require our nurturing and attention, within ourselves, environments, or relationships to others. There is a humility here that can be very self effacing and self sacrificing. This can allow for new approaches and perspectives. In some cases, these configurations can have people wondering if they are “good enough” for this or that, or whether they are truly deserving. There may also be some preparations underway for some changes and transformations that are unfolding socially or interpersonally. Don’t let perfectionism trip you up.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF JUNE 20-26 2022




MON JUN 20 

We begin the week with the Moon conjunct Neptune and Juno in Pisces, while squaring the Sun in Gemini and sextile Venus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. Venus is trine Pluto now, an aspect which perfects tomorrow as the Sun enters comfort and security oriented Cancer. This indicates some powerful and persuasive forces are at work, and Mercury sextile Pluto is optimistic but very agile, light on it’s feet, and difficult to pin down. The Moon spends the majority of today in sensitive Pisces, where there can be high hopes and ideals with deeper emotions or instinctive drives running under the surface. This can be particularly the case interpersonally, socially, creatively, and/or in regards to finances, investments and values. Pleasure, beauty, compassion, art, music, love, and high level aesthetics can be a driving theme for much of the day, and there can be a preoccupation with certain unsolved mysteries or things or people that exert a powerful pull. On a subtle level, deep transformations are occurring, and intangible desires can exert a powerful and transformative effect upon the psyche and body. The Moon enters dynamic and assertive Aries at 8:37 PM PST, where it conjoins Jupiter, seeing a build up of optimism, passion and courage.


TUES JUN 21

The Sun enters cozy Cancer in the witching hours at 2:14 AM PST, marking the Summer Solstice. The Moon in Aries is sextile curious Mercury in Gemini, and conjunct Jupiter and Chiron, seeing communications highlighted today in a big way. For some this can mean good news that boosts morale and increases courage and motivation. There is an eagerness here to learn, and an adventurousness that drives things. Venus in Taurus perfects the trine to powerful Pluto in the early morning hours, seeing powerful and magnetic pulls that are natural and organic. There may be a lot going on, but with this aspect perfecting, there can be some positive transformations going on under the surface, and even some fortunate occurrences. This aspect is strong for making financial and/or relationship decisions. With the Sun now in Cancer, there is a spotlight on the inner life, cultivating an inner circle, support system, and sense of security. Venus will enter a new chart sector tomorrow in the early evening, ending her square to Saturn, which will see certain blockages and inhibitions lessen, and increase curiosity. This can sweeten communications and make them a bit easier, taking the edge off of what may have felt intimidating previously. Energy builds as the day progresses, as the Moon in Aries conjoins Mars, which can see action and initiatives, and more courage and bravery. 


WED JUN 22

Today see’s the Moon in Aries conjunct Mars and Chiron while squaring Pluto. This can see an assertive energy, driven by powerful pulls and a desire to see change at a deep level. In some cases, this can see some spicy, competitive feelings or situations. There’s an excitement here around getting something into the bag or reaching a new level of success around something we feel strongly about with the Moon going on to sextile Saturn. Venus enters talkative Gemini at 5:34 PM PST, entering a new chart sector, and ushering in a cycle that is curious, communicative, and light on it’s feet. This will see the square Venus held to Saturn ebb off, which can feel freeing, like there is less in the way or less blockages and inhibitions socially, interpersonally, creatively or financially. The lunar square to Pluto can see intense feelings driving things, and we can be surprised by the strength, tenacity and endurance of our own and/or others emotions. 


THURS JUN 23

The Moon enters sensual Taurus at 4:58 AM PST, seeing much of the day focused on practical things. There can be a subtle build up of excitement or an inkling that change and surprises are around the corner. The Moon later goes on to conjoin Uranus in the evening, which can see us primed to shake things up or in the very least, form some sort of strategy to set some sort of positive change in motion. Venus ceases her square to Saturn today, which can see less inhibition around exploring an avenue socially, interpersonally, creatively or financially we’ve been curious about. This can involve communications, opening up dialog, or things going on in our local environment or neighborhood. With the Sun in Cancer squaring Jupiter and semi square Uranus, there’s a strong desire here to expand and get more out of life, particularly in regards to emotions, or things close to home, the inner life, and inner circle. There’s a bravery here as well, and an optimism that things will turn out for the best. There may be something exciting, weird, or just unprecedented about whatever possibilities lay before us that can make us slightly risk averse or make us question what’s driving us, but with Venus now curious to learn, certain avenues can seem irresistible to pursue, and it can feel natural to want to learn more. 


FRI JUN 24

The Moon in Taurus is conjunct Uranus, which can see some low key excitement and openness to calculated risk taking. There can be a lot of changes unfolding now on a subtle and even practical level. With the Moon conjunct the asteroid Pallas, there’s a strategic approach to certain things. The Moon goes on to square Saturn while making a semi square to Jupiter, which can see a quiet optimism and a need to be resilient and maintain a focus on maintaining the basic structure and integrity of our lives while we reign in small but perhaps exciting changes. The lunar conjunction to Uranus is more open to taking risks, but the other signatures indicate that this is gone about thoughtfully and with premeditation, planning and foresight. 


SAT JUN 25

Today begins with the Moon in tactile Taurus trine Pluto, sextile Neptune, and square Saturn, while building a conjunction to Venus. This suggests a powerful, perhaps hidden, buried or secret longing, that has a sort of “extended release” to it as it slowly trickles to the surface to be explored. There’s a strategic and intuitive approach guiding things. Curiosity can grow as the day progresses. The Moon enters communicative Gemini at 4:13 PM PST, conjunct Venus while still holding trine to compelling Pluto, and going on to sextile Jupiter. This can see a persuasive energy, and there can be some encouraging trends around innocently exploring new avenues socially or interpersonally. There is an eagerness here to learn and uncover certain things, or to follow a certain curiosity to it’s natural conclusion. This can see the evening, witching hours and tomorrow brimming with curiosity, communications, and perhaps even something to smile about. 


SUN JUN 26

Today see’s the Moon in multitasking and curious Gemini conjunct Mercury, Venus, and sextile Jupiter. Curiosity is boundless, and there’s an eagerness to learn, exchange communication, good news, or open up dialog that can open up worlds. This can see a fun, feel good vibe with a lot going on all at once, and perhaps some things to feel rightfully excited about on the social, interpersonal, creative or financial fronts. This math screams “positive news”, so hopefully everyone has something to feel optimistic about today. The Moon squares Juno while holding hands with Mercury and Venus, so relationships can be a catalyst here that make things more pleasant and entertaining. Something about the day to day life can feel more alive with variety, and discussions, banter, and clever back and forth can be highly entertaining. These are morale boosting configurations. Venus also has a growing sextile to Jupiter, suggesting a positive expansion is underway, socially and interpersonally. This aspect is also promising for creative and commercial endeavors as it strengthens over the coming days.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF JUNE 13-19 2022





MON JUN 13

We begin this week with the Moon in adventurous and philosophical Sagittarius in trine to Mars, Jupiter and Chiron, while opposing the Sun and squaring Juno. This can see the early morning hours brimming with hope, passion, enthusiasm, and wide eyed possibility. Mercury enters Gemini at 8:27 AM PST, seeing the planet of talk and thought back in it’s domicile and focused on communications, witty banter, and clever clap backs. There’s an expansiveness and motivation to this math that can be really encouraging around entering uncharted territory somehow. This can see a lot of drive, desire and curiosity, and the configurations suggest a build up of courage and an eagerness to explore something. There can be a passion around learning, higher knowledge and vistas here. With Mercury now direct and back into the area of your chart ruled by Gemini, things can begin to reset and get back on track, although many people will note that something is different in this area, and perhaps certain facts came to light during the retrograde that beg to be explored, accommodated or made room for. Mercury is strong in this face of Gemini, and eager to learn and gather information, so this cycle of Mercury can see increased curiosity and opens up channels of communication. Talking can become a bit easier now, and there is a desire here for lightness and shedding things that weigh down the heart and mind. Tomorrow early AM see’s the Full Moon in Sagittarius at 23 degrees. This may mark a closing out of something, perhaps a necessary separation from something or someone, in order to more fully enter into a period more tailored to our true will and destiny. 


TUE JUN 14

This morning at 4:52 AM PST, the Full Moon culminates in Sagittarius at 23 degrees. This face of Sagittarius is ruled by the 10 of wands in the tarot (“the 10 of dicks”-I hope you read that in my voice). This card represents the last hurdle, the last mile in a marathon. It’s a labor of love and is passionately, even obstinately driven to see something through. This decan also speaks of sacrifice based on necessity, in order to achieve that which is desired. Knowing what you want is the first step, for here is where the will is perfected and the necessary sacrifices are made in order to actualize it. This Full Moon is sextile Saturn and square Neptune, which further emphasizes an element of sacrifice and a binding of energies to a desired and satisfactory end. This math can see people having a sort of tunnel vision and determination, and yes, this can be to the detriment of other things, but if you know yourself and know what you want, then what is sidelined by this math is inconsequential to your further self actualization. What endures is substantive and is not only essential to spiritual growth and initiation into higher levels of mastery, but to feeling good about who you are. The Moon also squares Jupiter once it enters Capricorn around 3 PM PST. This shows a fervent curiosity and enthusiasm, a thirst for gnosis and an obstinate drive to explore what we feel passionate about. This may mean may mean cutting out extraneous distractions and whatever is superfluous to our aims. Mars and Chiron also perfect a conjunction in Aries today at 15 degrees. This can see some vulnerability, perhaps due to our will and those of certain others not being in alignment, but this configuration shows a great deal of sensitivity and empathy, and does not indicate ill will or malicious intent. Mars in this face of Aries shows excellent leadership capacity and handles conflicts of interest skillfully and in ways that generate a win, and the conjunction to Chiron throws in the addition of empathy and sensitivity in the case of any raw feelings involved in decisive actions or energetic prioritization. Anything or anyone that is placed on a back burner or cut out now is simply a casualty of necessity. What and who remains in periphery does so due to being imperative to- (or in the very least conveniently adjacent to) your upward ascension and full self actualization. The Full Moon being in Sagittarius suggests an element of personal growth, learning, study, philosophy, freedom, and mental and spiritual expansion is involved here, which implies a draw towards interactions and endeavors that widen our lens on the world and have something to teach us. 


WED JUN 15

Today see’s the Moon in Capricorn squaring Mars, Jupiter and Chiron, while trine Uranus. This earthy lunation can see a lot of passion, but there may be some sensitivity, frustration, or vulnerability as these configurations indicate a sort of tunnel vision that may have certain others feeling sidelined or less prioritized. There’s a strong desire here for change, and a sense that something simple or humble contains worlds within it unknown to us. The lunar trine to Uranus suggests there’s something strangely liberating about this sort of economization and prioritization of our passions, energies or attentions. The Moon goes on to trine Venus and conjoin Pluto as well, indicating some pleasant surprises and/or some strong draws. In the very least, it can actually feel good to be simple, consistent, and sensible and (maybe surprisingly), what’s simple, consistent and sensible can feel good or have a powerful draw. A lunar sextile to Juno and trine to Venus suggests an interpersonal element to all this. However, the lunar square to Mars, and Mars and Chiron so close together shows the possibility of certain people being disgruntled, unhappy, or feeling vulnerable, frustrated or impatient. Venus is trine Uranus and Pluto and is also squaring Saturn, which can see a compelling draw to unusual people or situations outside our typical comfort zone. There can be a bit of an inhibition to combat, along with the possibility of having to mediate the fact that such intense preoccupations or fixations may limit our attentions or point of interest to whatever has us fascinated or engaged, which can see an almost guilty feeling around simply following organic instincts or innate pulls. It’s also highly possible we’re frustrated by our own inhibitions and shyness. Venus square Saturn has difficulty asserting itself or being confrontational, so this can see a shy violet kind of thing going on where there might be a strong point of fascination, or a strong desire, but perhaps a lack of confidence or something else in the way of doing anything about it.  Venus is also conjunct the North Node in Taurus, emphasizing the importance of self worth and the role that it plays in relationships, values, and acquiring what we desire. The pull, desire, or point of fascination or intrigue will only grow stronger as the trine between Venus and Pluto strengthens at the end of the week. As long as it’s something or someone who adds to and reinforces rather than detracts from and takes away from your sense of self worth and security, it’s a friendly rabbit hole that’s worthy of such fervent interest. 



THURS JUN 16

We begin today with the Moon in Capricorn trine both Mercury and Venus, sextile Neptune and conjunct Pluto. It goes void of course at 11:41 am PST, seeing a lot to reflect on. Something or someone can have our attention, and we can feel pleasantly rapt and somewhat daydreamy. Security and consistency can be more important. A lunar trine to the North Node and the asteroid Pallas highlights reflection and strategy, so the wheels can be turning around something humble, meaningful, close to home, and important to you. The Moon enters cerebral and surprising Aquarius at 2:44 PM PST, where it forms a trine to Mercury, which can see communications highlighted. There may be some positive news in fact, as the Moon goes on to sextile Jupiter in Aries. This can see more courage, adventure, bravery and expansiveness in communications, and things can feel more friendly. There may be surprise visits or spontaneous gatherings. Maybe they’re planned for, but regardless, there can be friendly, perhaps even exciting or unexpected exchanges that can shake things up a bit, but in a way that boosts morale. It may even be very informative and illuminating, with a focus on high minded or out there “fringe” topics. 


FRI JUN 17

Today see’s the Moon in Aquarius square Uranus and Venus, conjunct Saturn, sextile Mars and Chiron. This has excitement, change , and surprise written all over it. This can see some restlessness in some cases, and the nervous system can be revved up. There’s a desire here for excitement and change. It’s possible to anticipate some out of the box or uncharacteristic behavior from certain people today. In the very least, it’s a spunky vibe. The Moon sextile Mars and Chiron is assertive, independent, brave, and ambitious, while the squares to Venus and Uranus suggests that relationships (personal, social, and business) can somehow be a catalyst for these drives. The lunar conjunction to Saturn however is another story. It’s painfully shy. Painfully so. Venus is also still square Saturn, and doesn’t shake free of this inhibition until next week. Venus is also now sextile Neptune, which takes the edge off a little bit from this square, and increases sensitivity, compassion, appreciation for art, beauty, music, nuance and subtlety, so in spite of inhibitions, this can see psychic links or make it easier to pick up on subtle cues, hints, and impressions. In some cases, these configurations actually increase the odds of people communicating indirectly for whatever reason, in spite of the otherwise spunky, assertive, freak flag flying configurations, because Saturn crunching the Moon and Venus for the time being induces cowardice and clings to safety. Venus trine Pluto in Capricorn on the other hand is compelling and transformative, and settles for nothing less than fearlessly authentic interactions. This aspect enjoys the frightening challenge that standing naked before another, both body and soul, poses, and desires a sort of deep transmutation, karmic retribution and mutual empowerment through a clean slate of justly conducted human relationships. Venus is also conjunct the North Node, which emphasizes the element of fate, destiny, and inevitability to whatever is unfolding right now for people socially and interpersonally. All in all, todays math can see some weird and interesting experiences, drives, downloads and impressions.


SAT JUN 18

This morning see’s the Moon in unorthodox Aquarius trine the Sun in Gemini, conjunct Saturn and square Venus in Taurus. This can see some interesting discussions, or new channels of communication or weird topics being tentatively ventured into. It can all feel a bit weird and even a bit intimidating in some way, and there can be a lot of shyness, but there’s also a strong curiosity here, a desire for learning and gnosis is present with Mercury sextile Jupiter. Things can be very dynamic, and although Mercury in Gemini desires to keep things light and airy, the sextile to Jupiter craves intellect, wisdom, philosophy, expansiveness, and meaning in life. This can see a draw to spiritual and esoteric topics. The Moon enters ethereal and reflective Pisces at 4:02 PM PST, squaring Mercury, which can see a dreamy, escapist and reflective mode take hold. There can be some indecisiveness and a lot of sensitivity to the atmosphere. A lunar semi square to Mars can make it hard to know how (or whether) to act. There might be some emotional blocks that need to be busted through. A good time to just chill and meditate. 


SUN JUN 19

Happy Fathers Day to all the daddy’s out there! Today begins with the Moon in sensitive Pisces squaring Mercury, seeing a dreamy, hazed out, moody, and wishy washy atmosphere that’s highly sensitive to stimuli, mystery, nuance and what’s left unsaid. The Moon goes on to sextile Uranus and conjoin Neptune and Juno, which can bring some psychic downloads, epiphanies, or points of illumination and insight, particularly around relationships. This can see an increase in synchronicity, serendipities, and amplify the microphone of the universe. A great time for meditation, divining, and tuning in to the unspeakable galactic funk for insight and guidance. The trine between Venus and Pluto is almost exact, so issues of love, sex, intimacy, relationships, merging, money, possessions, natural born gifts, values, self worth, security, and energetic exchanges can be preoccupying topics for many as this aspect plays out and perfects tomorrow. Next week, it’s possible for some good news to roll in or for some conversations to get rolling, or for beneficial mutual agreements or arrangements to be struck that can come into alignment like a math equation and just make sense. A fresh page is turned next week as we head into Cancer season on Tuesday and Venus heads into talkative and busy Gemini to join Mercury on Wednesday. Look to the area of your whole house natal chart ruled by Cancer and Gemini to see which area of your life will be highlighted and blessed up during these transits. Communications can get a whole lot easier (and sweeter.)

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF JUN 6-12 2022




MON JUN 6

The Moon enters detail oriented Virgo at 2:22 AM PST, to trine Venus in Taurus as we kick off the week. With Venus conjunct Uranus, this can see a sort of preparatory energy, and there can be some shocks, (some of them very positive) to ground and absorb.  The Moon trine Venus can see an ambiance of feeling pleasantly motivated to make improvements. With Mercury now direct and Saturn now retrograde, and the two still in a sharp square, there’s a whittling down process going on around priorities, thoughts and communications. The combined alignments are humble and practical in nature, and it can feel good to simplify situations to their basic and practical elements and eliminate what is superfluous or insensible. These configurations bring people back into the body and bring attention to their own backyards so to speak, and there is much to be appreciative of. Saturn going retrograde brings attention to what’s been missed, overlooked, neglected, taken for granted, ignored, or not given it’s proper due. Squaring up to the North and South nodes, there’s an element of fate, destiny and karma in play. Pluto Rx in the sign that Saturn rules is sextile Neptune. This gently encourages Pluto to disarm, soften, concede, but also brings otherworldly and subtle but profound experiences that can touch people at a soul level. Mercury direct in Taurus is also trine Pluto, producing laser focus. Today can be pleasantly focused on practicalities, and joy can be found in humble places. The Moon later squares the Sun and trine’s Uranus as well, which can see some surprises, nervous energy, problem solving, and multitasking. There may be a lot of changes happening or things to adapt or adjust to or make room for, and this can see a lot of plate spinning or improvisation. 


TUES JUN 7

The Moon in Virgo squares the Sun in Gemini while trine Venus, Uranus, and the asteroid Pallas, while opposite Neptune. This can see a strategy being formed around an aim or desire, or a need to improvise. We can be drawn to unusual people or experiences, and the Moon opposite Neptune can see a lot of sensitivity. There can be a lot going on in the local environment, or in regards to communications or transportation that keeps people on their toes. There can be pleasant distractions, but also a temporary need to make some sacrifices for the time being, and take a more strategic, reflective or laid back approach. With the Sun sextile Chiron, there’s a natural sensitivity, empathy and understanding for others, even if certain things prevent them from being on exactly the same page as ourselves for the time being. The Moon trines Mercury and Pluto, emphasizing Mercury’s trine to Pluto, and this can highlight communications, perhaps around working out the details about something, making loose plans, testing the waters, or getting to the bottom of something compelling. There can be a need to follow an instinct, hunch, mystery or strong pull to it’s natural conclusion, but with the Moon trine Pallas there’s also a gentle, measured, organic and strategic approach. 


WED JUN 8 

The Moon enters partnership oriented Libra this morning at 8:23 AM PST, where it will oppose Mars and Jupiter in Aries. It can feel like something is building up or reaching a crescendo, and there can be a feeling of optimism. Interpersonal, social, and partnership matters, both business and personal, can seem brimming with possibility or on the verge of turning a fresh page. There can be a lot of enthusiasm around this. As the lunar opposition to Mars grows more intense in the evening, excitement can turn to impatience and stir crazy, so take care to channel the energy constructively in your favor, and don’t allow impatience or frustration sabotage the very things you desire. Whatever is unfolding now is fated and intended to accelerate your evolution and ascension with Saturn Rx squaring the Dragons head and tail. There’s no reason to rush what is meant for you, because it’s already yours. 


THURS JUN 9 

The Moon in Libra forms a trine to the Sun and opposes Mars and Chiron today. This can see vulnerability and sensitivity in communications. It’s a fluttery, nervous, but extremely driven, possibly even competitive feeling. Ambitions can be lit up as the lunar Mars contacts highlight our desires and drive to go after what we want. Maybe a certain conversation needs to be had. There can be a desire to get on the same page with others, communicate something sensitive or important, or get something in the bag. There can be a lot of communications to keep up with, making people sensitive to timing or what is said or not said (or what may be only implied.) The Moon opposite Chiron is sensitive, compassionate, and psychic. Sometimes this configuration is hypersensitive however, and the Moon opposite Mars is spicy, reactionary, passionate and impulsive. So if something has you feeling vulnerable (or just really passionate), avoid reacting immediately to any perceived slights or dismissals, and take five. These maths suggest an opportunity to find common ground with others and get on the same page through tact, finesse, and diplomacy. 


FRI JUN 10 

Today begins with the Moon in Libra, forming a trine to Saturn Rx in Aquarius, which the Sun also forms a trine to. The Moon is also square Pluto and quincunx Mercury, which can see mystery and intensity. Something can be quietly stabilizing, and foundations can be laid that have more significance than may be initially apparent. With Saturn Rx trine the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Libra, there can be a social, community, or interpersonal/partnership element to foundations being laid down now. New communication patterns or establishing new, more harmonious dynamics can be a theme. This can be in the local, everyday environment, community, and/ or via the internet. There can be a strong pull around whatever is unfolding now. The Moon enters intense and reflective Scorpio in the afternoon PST, suggesting there’s a lot to privately metabolize. Something about what is happening now can feel exciting, even somewhat thrilling or intense. Strangely, there may be something low key about it, or we may feel a desire to simply be low key about it and keep it to ourselves, but there can be an inner smile or feeling of excitement and anticipation.


SAT JUN 11

The Moon in Scorpio opposes Venus and Uranus in Taurus, which both perfect a conjunction today at 16 degrees. This can see a certain restlessness and an intense preoccupation with certain things. The Venus/Uranus conjunction can see surprising decisions, revelations, breaks from routine, or highly unusual connections. This conjunction signifies a major upgrade and ascension, but is surprisingly humble or subtle in nature, but exciting. It's an unstable, electric and exciting energy that can keep people on their toes or on the edge of their seats. This can see calculated risks being taken that may have been thought about for a while. Relationships can be under the spotlight somehow, with the Moon trine Juno. This is a reflective, broody, instinctual and lusty energy with intense and electric undertones. The Moon opposite Venus can see people feeling unsure of themselves or awkward or uncomfortable in social situations, so this energy is more prone to slinking off under a nice rock to fantasize and strategize about certain things. The Moon squares Saturn and trine’s Neptune later on, seeing the evening even more prone to private contemplation and allowing oneself to experience a wide array of emotions and instincts. The lunar square to Saturn implies some bashfulness or even blushing around intense instincts or feelings. The lunar trine to Neptune enjoys the process and subtle energies. This can see a preparation for release of certain blockages to make way for a transformation. There is a Full Moon right around the corner that takes place in the wee hours of next Tuesday, so this reflective lunation assists in making way for what is to come.


SUN JUN 12

Today begins with the Moon in Scorpio opposing Mercury, squaring Mars, trine Neptune and sextile Pluto. This energy is like the Golem hiding himself away from intruders in order to dedicate more time and space to pine and scheme over procuring the Precious.  There is a dedication and resilience to these configurations. The drives and desires are strong. The nervous system can be sensitive to external stimuli and the psyche highly attuned to the most subtle impressions and nuance. There can be some self doubt with the lunar opposition to Mercury, but the powerful pulls of whatever is driving us can propel us to enter the hypnotic vortex that both mystifies and frightens us. In the very least, these configurations can assist us in transmuting self doubt into power and personal agency. The Moon enters adventurous and optimistic Sagittarius at 3:31 PM PST, where it forms a trine to Jupiter, and eventually, Mars. This boosts enthusiasm, confidence and a sense of “fuck it" considerably. Self doubt gives way to faith, and there is an embrace of whatever is going on in the higher, spiritual dimensions (which is quite a lot).  The Sagittarius lunation gives way to a charmed “fuck yes” attitude and is eager to dive into the hypnotic, magnetic vortex to emerge renewed and reinvigorated.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 30-JUNE 5 2022




MON MAY 30

We begin this week with a New Moon in Gemini. It reaches climax at 4:30 AM PST, exactly conjunct the Sun at 9 degrees Gemini. This is a good time to slow down and simplify. This face of Gemini speaks of a myriad of options, or a paralyzing amount of stimulation. It holds great a curiosity, but there is also a nervous energy here that can feel daunting, as there can be a great complexity within what appears simple. A good time to ground, center, and attend to whatever has been neglected and ignored, even if what has been ignored or put off has seemed unpleasant to deal with. It’s in dealing with such things that brings rise to our own liberation. Take care not to double or triple book yourself.  The New Moon squaring Juno suggests that something interpersonal can be catalyzing a certain momentum, and points to a desire for more interaction, communication and connection. Mercury Rx squaring Saturn for the time being can see some people quieter than usual, or communications can be more inhibited in certain ways. It can feel like there’s a limited bandwidth as to what can be processed at the moment, or there’s simply a need to focus on basic essentials due to a specific goal or point of manifestation. Mars conjunct Jupiter in Aries is enthusiastic and and growing more confident and courageous by the day, and with Venus now in Taurus, there’s a “settling in” feeling to a certain mission or quest. The evening ends with the Moon trine Saturn and sextile Chiron, seeing the day end on an accomplished feeling note that can leave morale feeling boosted at the possibilities ahead.


TUES MAY 31

Today begins with the Moon in the final degrees of Gemini squaring Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune, while trine Saturn. This can see some impulsive drives, curiosity, and desires with very little information to go off of. Mercury doesn’t station direct until Friday, and we still have a shadow phase to get through, so there’s no harm in exploring curiosity and gathering intel, but take your time around major decisions or signing contracts. This can be a curious day, and there can be a desire to sort out the feasibility of certain things or get some clarity around elusive or confusing matters. Mercury Rx’s aspects to Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, and the North Node suggests a bit of a dreamy, quiet, somewhat distracting, even stubborn fixation on something, and a desire to get to the bottom of things or go through them with a fine tooth comb in order to assess them properly and ensure good understanding or quality control. Probably certain things will become more clear at the weekend. It’s possible that some people might have something they’d like to share but can’t seem to choke the words out. The Moon enters emo Cancer at 10:49 PM PST, where it will square Mars and Jupiter and sextile Venus. Tomorrow can see a lot of emotional momentum. People can be more sensitive than they may appear or portray on the surface, so it doesn’t hurt to be kind.


WED JUNE 1

Today the Moon in her domicile of Cancer sextile’s Venus in her domicile of Taurus, while squaring Mars in his domicile of Aries (along with Jupiter in Aries). This can see quite a lot of drive and emotional momentum behind things. The drive towards pleasure, comfort, and security are major motivating factors here. The Moon sextile to Venus can be charming, but the Moon square Mars can have a hard time controlling itself, reigning itself in, or having patience. There’s a desire here to integrate more pleasure, comfort and enjoyment into the everyday experience or environment, and Mars in Aries conjunct Jupiter is excitable. The Moon goes on to square Chiron later on, suggesting some vulnerability, weakness or being caught off guard by something or someone. This can see some sensitivity or butt hurt in the atmosphere, so tread carefully around volatile situations or temperamental personalities. Someone may be carrying a burden or inner conflict on their heart, mind or shoulders so stoically that others don’t even suspect they’re in need of a boost or inspiration. The Moon is also trine Juno in Pisces, and this suggests some quiet support from behind the scenes. It’s possible to anticipate more kindness, empathy, or understanding from certain others than previously anticipated, which may lighten a load or ease the pressure of conflicting but equally important needs.



THURS JUNE 2 

Today see’s the Moon in Cancer sextile Uranus and trine Neptune, while squaring Chiron, eventually going on to oppose Pluto. There could be some sensitivity in the air, but also a lot of empathy and compassion, perhaps even some surprising opportunities could arise through being more open and vulnerable with others. The Sun’s sextile to Chiron suggests some opportunities to connect to others, and the lunar trine to Neptune can see intuitive hunches or insights and an almost telepathic ability to read other people. There could be empathy and understanding in surprising or unusual places today. In the later hours, the Moon forms a sextile to Mercury, right before it stations direct, suggesting some opportunities presented via communications that were maybe missed or overlooked before. 


FRI JUNE 3

Mercury stations direct at 1 AM PST at 26 degrees Taurus. The Moon in late Cancer is sextile the talkative planet and presents a unique opportunity to express thoughts or feelings. Something shared or expressed can have more of an impact than we realize, and in some cases, this can see a confessional atmosphere or in the very least, some shared vulnerability. There can be some intense undercurrents with the Moon opposite powerful Pluto, but more than likely this can see buried or submerged things come to the surface or make it easier to confront otherwise intimidating situations, as there is a lot of sensitivity and compassion present that can melt defenses, although Mercury and Saturn are at a tight square, so there may still be quite a lot of reserve or inhibition present. The Moon enters demonstrative and showy Leo at 11:38 AM PST, where it will square Venus in Taurus, and trine Mars and Jupiter in Aries. It’s possible certain things revealed can give us something to smile about. This can see some action on the interpersonal and creative fronts, and there can be some joyful dynamics unfolding. Saturn stations retrograde tomorrow, suggesting a time of karmic rebalancing.  Saturn retrograde can provide an opportunity to reflect upon past behaviors and patterns in order to avoid repeating missteps or accumulating negative karma (cause and effect) in the future. A good period to slow down and reflect on your goals and priorities and savor the opportunities being presented to you. 


SAT JUNE 4

The Moon in Leo is ready to get the party started and is eager for more fun and enjoyment. It forms a square to Venus in Taurus, suggesting the drive towards pleasure and enjoyment is a primary motivation for the day. The lunar trines to Mars, Jupiter and Chiron indicate a lot of enthusiasm, drive and energy, and there can be something going on that considerably uplifts the mood and boosts morale. Perhaps there’s something to feel excited about. Saturn stations retrograde at 2:47 PM PST, and this suggests that opportunities presented now have more significance than we realize, and that certain processes and learning experiences should be savored and given their due. This also suggests that bridges built now have karmic significance and play an important role in our own self mastery and development. Today can be surprising, as the Moon in Leo goes on to square Uranus midmorning, this can see some out of the blue developments or see some people act in surprising ways. This can see excitement, enthusiasm and a lot of passionate, creative, and electric energy. It doesn’t look boring. Things can actually feel hopeful. 


SUN JUNE 5

The Moon in Leo squares Mercury in Taurus, which is now direct, and also opposes Saturn. There can be some indecision or pros and cons to weigh, and it’s possible that someone could feel lonely or “left out”, or shy, inhibited, or simply bogged down in duties or preparations. The Moon squaring Mercury can see a pressure or a desire to communicate, or there may be things going on in our local environment that encourage more openness to change. The hopefulness experienced over Friday and Saturday now greet the need to make adjustments in order to actualize certain realities. With Mercury now finally direct, things can start to find their footing and get back on track, possibly in an improved state compared to where they were at prior to the retrograde. The Moon will enter Virgo late this evening, getting next week off to an earthy start that is focused on getting organized and prepared, and it’s possible something pleasant could be a motivating factor, driving us to make room in our lives for positive changes and fresh developments. This can see a need to adjust our routines to make room for something or someone. There can also be an emphasis here on self improvements and making the everyday existence more beautiful, pleasing, and livable.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 23-20 2022




MON MAY 23

We begin the week still adapting to the shift of emphasis brought on by the Sun’s entrance into Gemini, and Mercury backtracking into Taurus, among other things, - with still more shifts to come as Mars enters Aries on Tuesday and Venus changes signs on Saturday. The Moon is in reflective Pisces today, sextile Uranus and conjunct Neptune and Juno. There may be some perspective changing surprises to integrate as new facts have been coming to light via unexpected news or communications with Mercury now having backed into Taurus. This can bring more clarity of purpose. Later on, the Moon goes on to conjunct Mars in the final, most urgent degrees of Pisces, suggesting that passions can be surprising and a desire for action, not just fantasizing or dreaming, can grow over the coming days. The evening ends on an imaginative and enthusiastic note that grows more determined on Tuesday onward. There can be a lot of motivation to prepare for more activity and focus in the are of your chart ruled by Aries. 


TUES MAY 24

We begin today with the Moon in late Pisces sextile Mercury, conjunct Mars, Jupiter and Neptune, while sextile Pluto. News and communications can motivate significant change and shifts, and a renewed sense of clarity, drive, inspiration, and purpose can permeate the atmosphere.  Venus perfects a sextile to Saturn today at 25 degrees, and this can see patience paying off, and it can feel like we are finally about to see the fruits of our labors, patience, or devotion.There can be something beautiful unfolding. Shifts and changes being integrated and adapted to can still be in a sort of preparitory phase, but there is a feeling that things are turning a new and exciting corner. The Moon enters Aries at 2:39 PM PST, with Mars following suit at 4:17 PM PST.  Here the Moon is sextile the Sun, and conjunct both Mars and Jupiter. There is something that has our enthusiasm levels up to 11. With Mars now out of Pisces, and new facts coming to light, there can be a strong desire to act immediately and see an instant change. Mars is like a pent up animal, as in Pisces, it felt inhibited, shy, and uncertain. Now there can be more certainty around drives, but it will be important to temper enthusiasm lest assertion borders on aggression or over eagerness that can sabotage even the most lifted of circumstances. In either case, something can definitely be adding to enthusiasm and excitement levels, and it can feel in some cases that certain wishes are being granted. Mars is much more comfortable and motivated here. This energy can lift people out of ruts.


WED MAY 25

The Moon is conjunct Chiron today, indicating a lot of sensitivity but also an increase in hopefulness and confidence. Morale may have been boosted around something. With the Sun in Gemini sextile Jupiter and trine Pluto, there may be some powerful shifts occurring via communications, siblings, neighbors, news, and things going on in our local environment that can have more significance than we may realize. Mercury is sextile Mars and trine Pluto while squaring Saturn. There can be a powerful urge to communicate, but there may also be some shyness or inhibition, or a need to be careful in how we communicate certain truths as they can pack quite a punch. Although there may be something exciting brewing or something that has us feeling enthusiastic and motivated, there may be a need to be careful or sensitive about how we share certain facts that have emerged with others, as what may seem simple, innocent, uncomplicated, or just plain and simple goodness can somehow be loaded or heavy for certain others to digest. In other cases, there can be a feeling of intimidation around certain good things unfolding, almost as if there’s a need to look for something wrong, or waiting for a carriage to inevitably turn into a pumpkin. Regardless of whatever shifts are occurring now, there can be some things to be excited about. 


THURS MAY 26

The Moon conjoins Venus and sextile’s Saturn while squaring powerful Pluto today, and this can see a strong emphasis on pleasure, enjoyment, and some powerful pulls. The sextile to Saturn suggests that something can be finally stabilizing that can allow for more enjoyment without upsetting the structure of our lives and our longterm goals. In fact, there can be an awareness here about the need or desire to integrate something enjoyable into our routines, and this can see a focus on harmonious change, adapting, and making room for something or someone. There can also be a bit of a transition here as certain patterns of stagnancy are phased out. With Venus entering Taurus on Saturday, there will be more of an emphasis on the little things and creature comforts that make life worth living. The Moon squaring Pluto while Venus perfects a square to Pluto at 28 degrees can see some underlying intensity, strong passions, drives, pulls, or undercurrents of power and passion permeating things. Almost as if whatever is going on might upset certain others, or there might be a need to be low key to avoid drama, power struggles, dropping the ball in other areas, or being consumed or obsessed with something or someone. If that isn’t the case, there’s simply a lot that is transforming interpersonally or socially and a need to clear the decks for sweeping changes settling into place. Venus square Pluto is rife with desire, and Venus in the final degree of Aries wants what it wants yesterday, so take care not to self sabotage via wanting something so badly that you chase it away or rip it to shreds and prematurely abandon the mission out of insecurity because it’s not instantaneous. There is some powerful chemistry or fated interactions or dynamics in play in this mathscape. The Moon enters sensual, practical and tactile Taurus at 11:22 PM PST, placing a focus on enjoying the small and simple pleasures of everyday existence. 


FRI MAY 27

We begin the day with the Moon still conjunct Venus, while Venus is entering the final and most urgent degree of Aries and squaring Pluto. This can see some intense cravings, and an excited, almost nervous impatience, perhaps even a bit of intimidation. Slowing down to a more organic pace that allows you to enjoy the process and the small pleasures along the way is key. The Moon conjuncts Uranus, and this can see a lot of changes happening on a practical, every day level, and it can be liberating in some way to embrace authenticity and feel catalyzed out of certain stagnant ruts that many people settled into while Mars was in Pisces. With the Moon conjunct Uranus, and sextile Juno, the day can keep us on our toes as far as being adaptable to change goes, particularly socially, interpersonally or financially. Venus in the final degree of Aries squaring Pluto is in a low key beast mode. This aspect is powerful, driven, obsessed, compelling, instinctual and deeply passionate. There may be a need to try and calm down and cultivate some moderation, as something or someone can really have people fired up about getting what they want. This aspect is an irresistible pull and a compelling, magnetic drive. Mercury Rx in Taurus tries to play it down with it’s square to demure Saturn and it’s sextile to shy, spiritual Neptune, but it’s trine to Pluto suggests there is absolutely a desire here to get to the bottom of something, bring things to the surface and actualize something slowly and gradually.


SAT MAY 28

Venus enters sensual and practical Taurus at 7:46 AM PST, still squaring Pluto. The planet of love, money, beauty, creativity, and sensuality has identified what it wants while in Aries, Mercury Rx in Taurus has been on a fact finding mission around how feasible something is, and now Venus slips into a more seductive and easy going frame, settling into a more grounded, practical, and centered attitude. Venus in Taurus brings people back into their bodies and the beauty of the everyday experience along with the simple pleasures available to us in the humble and typically underrated places that people can tend to take for granted The Moon conjuncts Uranus, and Mercury Rx in Taurus, while squaring Saturn, sextile Neptune and trine Pluto. This can see a focus on communications and fact finding, as well as adaptation, organizing and preparing.  The Moon square Saturn emphasizes the need to play the long game and to temper nervous impatience and desire for instant gratification with resilience, strategy, and enjoying the journey.  What is meant for you will come. The Moon trine Pluto can indicate certain confidences shared or things uncovered that can stoke inspiration, change things dramatically, and bring more clarity of purpose. Next week begins on a driven and motivated note. There’s everything to play for, and the little, humble things in life can take on much more significance. 


SUN MAY 29

Early morning see’s the Moon in late Taurus conjunct Mercury Rx and trine Pluto. This can see a somewhat reflective and earthy atmosphere. There may be a lot of information to sift through, but the Taurus Moon craves simplicity. Venus has just entered easy going, slow moving Taurus, where the pace is more relaxed and the focus is on enjoying the little things. The Moon enters talkative Gemini around 10:23 AM PST, placing a focus on communications, returning calls, messages, or uncovering information. Here, the Moon is conjunct the Sun in preparation for the New Moon that occurs tomorrow. This can see a busy Sunday for some, with errands, short visits, or meet ups, or a lot to do. It can feel busy and packed with activities, talks, communications, or a lot to keep up with. Mercury Rx squaring Saturn can feel mentally weary or a bit frayed around the edges. This aspect seeks to minimize stimulation to the bare minimum of what’s absolutely necessary in order to concentrate on what is essential, while the Moon in Gemini demands a bit of plate spinning and dexterity, at least, for the time being. There are certain things that can be very motivating, but there are also a lot of distractions, shifts, or comings and goings to accommodate. As we head into the New Moon, make sure to take some time for renewal and try not to overtax your nervous system.
