MON JUN 28.
The early morning hours are highlighted by the Moon in late Aquarius conjunct Jupiter Rx in early Pisces, I’m looking at it right now as I type this at the butt crack of dawn, and it’s just beautiful. This can see the day begin with noble intentions, and on an emotionally detached but generous, optimistic note. There can be an element of positive reform at play here. Mid morning see’s the Moon leave detached Aquarius for boundless Pisces at 10:51 AM PST, where it tightens it’s conjunction with Jupiter and trines the Sun in cozy Cancer. This can see a lot of positive thinking. In thinking positively, -it’s also important to remain realistic (and not be naive). The Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Pisces is good at bringing acceptance and peace to situations, making it easier to do whatever is necessary to clear hurdles or release deadweight, without inward guilt trips or negative emotions. With Mars in courageous Leo now opposite Saturn and square Uranus, and Venus preparing to meet Mars, this can see some highly unusual or unconventional situations, either in love, finances, or passion projects, and there can be some challenges or oppositional forces to overcome so that particular people can finally come together and/or things can finally gel in some way. In the meantime, the Moon in Pisces assists in accepting things and people as they are, and is able to appreciate love in all it’s forms. Mars fights to come together with Venus and on her behalf, and any obstacles, opposition, or challenges can strengthen bonds that are felt and weld people together through tests of patience, endurance, strength and resolve. Today can see a sort of hunkering down, and getting settled into a process that is taking place. The Pisces lunation makes it easier to feel at peace with whatever is unfolding here. Mercury trine Saturn has been working on stabilizing and reforming the area of your whole sign natal chart ruled by Gemini, so that whatever we are working towards manifesting has a more solid foundation from which to spring from.
TUES JUN 29.
Today see’s the Moon in Pisces trine the Sun in Cancer, sextile Uranus in Taurus, and conjunct Neptune in Pisces, while squaring Mercury in Gemini. What no longer makes any sense, supports our security, or helps us feel truly nourished is dissolving and being replaced with new, more sensible approaches. With Uranus in Taurus, solutions or positive new directions are found in the humblest of places and have a simple, “common sense” air about them. So much so, we may wonder what took us so long to come around to this line of thinking and why we didn’t embrace, appreciate, or acknowledge what has been right under our nose sooner. No matter, because whatever has been going on before, it’s now garishly obvious that it simply isn’t producing the results or outcomes we desire, making it impossible to ignore the value of simple common sense. What is simple, humble, practical, or even just local/in our own neighborhood or backyard, can be revolutionary, and it can bring a lot of inner peace to release all that which is convoluted, inauthentic, uncertain, and nebulous, to replace it with something far more sensible and tangible, that’s been right under our nose all along. This will actually fulfill whatever need/purpose/or desire we were looking to fulfill in the first place while taking fantastical or convoluted paths that yielded little more than an empty mirage and left much to be desired as far as lived results go. What is common sense, simple, humble, or “every day”, can seem like a radical epiphany now, (if this hasn’t occurred already.) It will be hard to dismiss the value of that which is simple, basic, humble and matter of fact, and we may wonder why we were making things so convoluted and complicated for ourselves for so long. Such realizations, applied wisdom, and reforms can be occurring in the house of your whole sign natal chart that is ruled by Gemini, and this can produce very healing results. This can help a great deal going forward, and we can feel a lot of peace about releasing things that just don’t work, and only serve to drain energy, vitality, and a (genuine) sense of comfort and security. Uncommon common sense.
WED JUN 30.
Today see’s the Moon in late Pisces conjunct Neptune while sextile Pluto, while building a trine (out of sign) to Venus in gregarious Leo. This can mark a day where some powerful changes can be implemented which can begin to be integrated. These changes, however large or small, can have an across the board enlivening, heartening, and beneficial impact. Whatever is in metamorphosis now can do much to increase confidence, self worth, vitality, enthusiasm, self empowerment, self love, and even creativity. This will naturally have a knock on affect in our relationships with others, and even finances or other Venus ruled activities will be enriched by these positive transformations. The Moon is technically void of course from 10:40 AM PST, and this suggests a good time to step back, “take it all in”, reflect, dream, meditate, and build energy for the more assertive Aries lunation. The Moon enters Aries at 6:21 PM PST, emphasizing the lunar trine to Venus while squaring the Sun in Cancer. The latter part of today and this evening can be focused on pleasure, joy, and things that make us feel alive, motivated, connected and excited. The lunar/Venus action can bring out a creative and playful streak, and even if there are challenges or differences of opinion, temperaments, or agendas indicated by Mars opposite Saturn, it can be easy to locate common ground with others and to appreciate the trajectory we are on and connect with the feelings of motivation and enthusiasm required to tackle any challenges that may lie ahead gracefully. The rewards of putting in effort, energy and time into positive reforms can be obvious, as can the rewards of cultivating peace and common ground by blending and harmonizing disparate elements, styles, or temperaments.
THURS JUL 1.
Today see’s the Mars/Saturn opposition become exact and perfect. Even if there is challenge, opposition, struggle or friction, we can be very motivated and passionate about something or someone now that we’ve been very patient and enduring about. Conversely, Saturn can help us focus on where we may have been going over the top or being too hedonistic and indulgent in ways that may have lead to regrets, and this can help us be more masterful, discerning, skillful and intentional around our passions or impulses. The Moon in energetic Aries conjoins Chiron and trines both Mars and Venus in Leo, and we are willing to fight for whatever it is we desire. Any opposition or challenge only strengthens our resolve, but it also helps us be wise, measured, and strategic in our approach. The carrot on the end of the stick is obvious, and this lunation can see a sort of reinvigoration and a desire to strengthen ourselves where we have felt weak, out of control, or vulnerable. There can be more courage available to up the ante where we may have felt timid, aimless, (or buckwild?) or our desires or goals felt somehow impossible or out of bounds to fulfill. With the Moon squaring the Sun in Cancer we may be a little out of our comfort zone in some way, but it may be easy to recognize how doing things differently or being a bit more courageous somehow only strengthens us and lets in more joy, light, love, and vital life force, as the Sun also forms a sextile to illuminating Uranus, suggesting a change can do us good and bring emotional growth. This can see some “out of the box” or unorthodox emotional situations as well, but there can be something exciting, refreshing, healing, and even life giving about embracing what or who is “different” or outside of our usual norm, or simply being more authentic about what we want, (even if that means certain others might not like or understand it.) Regardless of what's going on, only the Universe and the wisdom of our own soul knows why it compels us toward certain people or intertwines the stories of certain folks together. These aspects ensure that particular people enter into our story or play some sort of role, whether passively and unknowingly or more directly, -to unlock something within us that will assist in our souls growth, healing and evolution. So, try not to put everyone or everything into a box right now, including yourself, as these configurations make for some highly unusual, "unorthodox" and dynamic situations and interactions, and this is intended to facilitate deep healing. Today can see a lot of energy to get things done, and it’s possible we can feel that we’re growing more strength, courage and vitality. A lunar trine to relationship asteroid Juno can also see some mutually supportive and encouraging interactions that can help boost confidence and motivation levels. “You can do eeeet!”
FRI JUL 2.
Today see’s the Moon in Aries sextile Mercury in Gemini and square Pluto. This can see some intense conversations, or we can be heavily mentally preoccupied with something or someone, and there can be a certain tunnel vision around this that if anything, is extremely thorough. A lunar trine to the healing asteroid Hygeia suggests this can be something revolving around the health of the body and/or the soul. Our own wellbeing and/or those of others can be a factor somehow. Regardless, a lunar square to Pluto isn’t afraid to confront whatever is buried, taboo, or possibly even a bit uncomfortable. The Moon/Pluto aspect can see people fixated or a bit obsessed over something, and in the earlier part of the day particularly, it may come out in conversation. It may be difficult to be anything but authentic, but maybe this isn’t a bad thing. Whether you label it “bad” or “good”, the day has a certain powerful “intensity” within it. Emotional intensity and confronting buried feelings can be a part of the mix somehow. The Moon goes void of course at 9:15 PM PST, and Venus and Mars continue to inch closer together, day by day, preparing for their fated union. This can see us preparing for a sort of “coming together” of our own, and this can represent a particular interaction in some cases, or some sort of other successful, healing, and happy culmination that we’ve worked hard towards, waited a long time for, or simply put in a lot of time, effort, and patience into. Whatever it is, it hasn’t been easy, as there’s been challenge, opposition, false starts, and even periods of outright deflation or feeling alone. Any positive conclusions, rewards, or “happy endings” that will be the result of the ensuing and ongoing configurations will certainly be well deserved.
SAT JUL 3.
The Moon enters earthy and sensual Taurus at 5:28 AM PST, conjunct Uranus, sextile Jupiter, and square Venus and Mars in Leo along with Saturn in Aquarius. The square between Mars and Uranus is also exact today, perfecting at 13 degrees, and this could see some surprising, unexpected, or impulsive moves, out of the blue attractions, or some “fuck it I’m gonna do/say this” moments that have perhaps been brewing for a long while now. Moon/Venus/Saturn/Uranus contacts combined with Mars perfecting it’s square to Uranus could suggest some powerful temptations or drives that are difficult to ignore. Repressing things in the name of propriety or “acceptability” only leads to resentment and a lack of fulfillment. Stirring the pot or taking a risk in some way certainly trumps living a lie. In either case, there will be a powerful impetus towards following our own authentic rhythm with the Mars/Uranus square perfecting today, no matter how weird it seems (or who get’s shocked or offended). This is a liberating aspect that comes with a certain element of controversy or risk taking, and demands that we embrace the fact that there will probably be some kind of fall out, but anything worth preserving can handle our authenticity and our truth. We might try to restrain ourselves in some way, or feel a sense of inhibition, but once the Moon squares Mars as well as Venus, there’s much more impetus to just “feel the fear and do it anyway.” So, this mathscape leans heavily in a “fuck it” direction, and encourages people to do or say that thing they’ve been wanting to do or say but have felt constrained, restricted or inhibited from doing or saying. In other words, YOLO. Saturn helps to make realistic risk to benefit ratios and make assessments on where to cut back or prune. So if the reward is greater than the risk, go for it. If not, maybe reconsider your approach and see if you can find a sweet spot you're comfortable with, without compromising your true will.
SUN JUL 4.
Today see’s an interesting continuation of yesterday’s moderate to severe YOLO theme, and things get a lot deeper and more substantive. The Moon still squares Mars and Saturn however weakly, and still conjoins Uranus, but throws in a dreamy and cathartic sextile to Neptune, and a fearlessly freaky trine to depth psychologist Pluto. Perhaps following that “fuck it” instinct has brought some relief as well as opened up new possibilities that can allow us to feel not only more authentic and truly seen by certain others, -but also more connected and supported. These aspects can see us revealing sides of ourselves to others that we hadn’t before, and/or can see others revealing sides of themselves they had previously kept totally private. Inhibitions lessen as the day progresses, and there can be a sort of radical and liberating authenticity in the air. It can feel freeing to let go of worrying about what so and so is going to think of such and such, and this can make it easier to receive the kind of support and good energy we actually truly need. This can only benefit interactions and make it possible to connect and mutually support one another in deeper and more substantive ways. Even amidst great contradictions or differences between others, peace and harmony are possible.
