MON JUN 14.
Today see’s the Moon in Leo still close to Mars, but opposite Saturn and square Uranus, while trine Chiron. This can see some challenges or surprises, and can produce kind of an “edgy” energy that can feel somewhat unstable, but there is courage and bravery available to tackle challenges head on. The Sun/Neptune opposition and the Saturn/Uranus square are exact and perfected at this moment, and this can produce a highly experimental and innovative energy, and with Mercury still retrograde and squaring Neptune, staying on top of fuckery and getting at the truth of things continues to be important. There is also a lot of compassion and understanding available with the Sun/Neptune contact perfecting now. The Moon and Mars in Leo is courageous, and can reinvigorate strength, and provide an egoic resilience amidst oppositional forces or challenges. Although the tensions Mars will run into with Saturn and Uranus can keep people on their toes, or on the edge of their seats in certain ways, so courage and self belief will be an important quality to cultivate, nurture and maintain. Venus, now in the middle degrees of Cancer has been sextile unpredictable, rebellious, and independent Uranus, so last week and over the weekend may have seen people take more independence or liberty in partnerships or in regards to values or finances. This may have seen people go their separate ways momentarily or in the very least, there may have been some unorthodox circumstances or situations that required an experimental mindset, an open mind, or an innovative approach. Venus will trine Neptune beginning tomorrow, which can help smooth things over, dissolve boundaries, or seek comfort and refuge once again, or simply make the little things easy to enjoy, appreciate, and be grateful for. The square Venus has with Chiron may have created some feelings of vulnerabilities or weakness, which the trine to Neptune can help ease in private or seclusion, or with those we feel comfortable being vulnerable with. The Moon goes on to sextile Mercury in the afternoon, while also in trine to asteroid Juno, and this can see some positive or in the very least, supportive news or communications, which may be very welcome, as I don’t really like the “edgy” look of the lunar/Saturn/Uranus mash up. There can be issues of poor timing or miscommunications or misunderstandings. If things are tense, edgy, unpredictable, or slightly unsettling, it always helps to keep morale, courage, and optimism up via supportive connections, communications, and friendships.
TUES JUN 15.
The first half of today see’s the Moon largely void of course in Leo, so a good time to gather strength and courage. Venus trine’s Neptune and drops it’s sextile to staunchly independent and unpredictable Uranus. It still holds a square to Chiron which can see some lingering vulnerability, but the Neptune trine can bring peace, compassion, faith, and assist in release over that which we have no control. As the day wears on, a lunar opposition to Jupiter builds, and this can be experienced as a test of faith (and motivation levels), and it can be challenging to form a realistic assessment of our emotional and even practical, every day realities or feel confident we have “the lay of the land” so to speak. As we are still in the middle of a Mercury retrograde, in certain cases a wait and see approach is best, and it’s best to try to avoid knee jerk reactions, judgements, or assessments of people, circumstances, or events, as it will take some time as of yet for things to become more clear and things, people, and minds-can change on a whim. The Moon enters detail oriented Virgo at 8:02 PM PST, and there can be a bit of anxiousness that comes with this with the lunar opposition to Jupiter blowing things up and magnifying their proportions, making a realistic assessment of the facts a bit of a challenge. Virgo can be a bit of a worry wart sometimes, especially when there are so many unknowns, so anything that assists in grounding, simplifying, and soothing can be of help under the Virgo lunation. Virgo wants to feel prepared for anything that may come, and when it’s difficult to assess what may come, it can be easy to go into worry mode, but if something were to actually transpire, there’s no need to traumatize ourselves TWICE, and if nothing terrible happens, it’s needless to rob ourselves of the peace that is possible in the here and now.
WED JUN 16.
Today see’s the Moon in Virgo make an exciting trine to Uranus, a cautious quincunx to Saturn, and an eventual vexing and indecisive square to Mercury. This can see the possibility for some unexpected developments, news, feelings, or communications, and there may be a subtle inner conflict around whether to take a leap of faith in some direction or other, or whether to hold back, minimize, and restrain, and maintain a cautious and more energetically or emotionally conservative attitude. The heart may win out over the mind in the end here, as the Moon later goes on to form a soothing sextile to Venus in comfort seeking Cancer, which currently holds a trine to boundary dissolving, idealistic Neptune. Of course there are unknowns, and perhaps much confusion yet to navigate, but there is a trend building towards more cooperation, compromise, teamwork, and cohesion that can make things feel more friendly overall. Venus in mid degree of Cancer trine Neptune wants peace and quiet, a safe place of refuge, nurturing and harmony above all else, and doesn’t want to have to prove anything to anyone, so anything riddled in conflict, complex, criticism, or contributing to an overly judgmental environment will tend to simply be averted and avoided. The Virgo lunation wants to fix things and improve things, and may take innovative approaches to bring more harmony, functionality and efficiency to situations or dynamics. Perhaps things (and even expectations) need to be simplified or minimized for the time being to make things go more smoothly.
THURS JUN 17.
Todays main aspects see the Moon in Virgo square the Sun in communicative Gemini, opposite dreamy, confusing Neptune and trine powerful Pluto in realistic Capricorn. There’s certainly a desire here to make sense of things or cut to the essence of things. We may be doing our damndest to remain realistic and avoid letting all of our fantasies and happily ever after ideals run the show, but we can also be powerfully preoccupied with manifesting a dream or a goal. The ideals are certainly high, but we may also be acutely aware of the need to focus only on what we actually have control over and build from there. Venus trine Neptune is highly idealistic, and with the Moon in Virgo now, we may encounter our own latent perfectionistic tendencies as well. These aspects may also see strong draws to unusual people or pastimes, and it’s possible to get lost in something for hours. Also possible is a powerful preoccupation with some sort of “unsolved mystery”, with a desire to get to the bottom of something, or intuitively “feel out” what in the actual fuck is going on. Curiosity can certainly be aroused, as can mystery and vexation, but otherwise, the Moon/Pluto trine combined with the Neptune influences can be very powerful creatively or spiritually and help to facilitate some breakthroughs or soft power moves. Venus also opposes Pluto as well, so there can be some powerful, and perhaps compelling undercurrents to navigate interpersonally, or perhaps creatively under this aspect. This energy can be constructively funneled into projects that require focus, commitment, devotion, and dedication.
FRI JUN 18.
The Moon enters partnership oriented Libra in the wee hours at 1:54 AM, where it will sextile Mars in courageous, fun seeking Leo, opposite Chiron in Aries, and trine Saturn in socially minded Aquarius. This can begin the weekend with a focus on others, and there can be an impetus to bring more warmth, good times, fun, and cheer. With Saturn retrograde it’s possible that this could involve catching up with old, reliable friends that have stood the test of time but that may have been out of our loop for a while. The Moon goes on to trine Mercury in Gemini as well, so this can see a lot of back and forth between ourselves and others. In some instances there may be something serious to discuss with the lunar trine to Saturn, but in others it may just be that touching base with others brings a feeling of reassuring stability. Late night see’s the Moon conjoin the Part Of Fortune, which can see some fortunate contacts or mutually beneficial exchanges transpire, which can perhaps help bring a sense of stability where we may have experienced a sense of vulnerability or butthurt.
SAT JUN 19.
Today see’s the Moon in harmony seeking Libra trine Mercury and Saturn, while square Venus in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn. This can see some intense undercurrents or powerful and compelling pulls socially or interpersonally. The Libra Moon is good at niceties and putting on a cool and detached demeanor, even if under the surface there are more intense dynamics swirling about. Something about today can see some powerful interpersonal shifts or transformations. There’s definitely a desire to change something here, whether financially, socially or interpersonally. Lunar trine’s to the Sun and Mercury in Gemini highlight communications, and it’s possible that some deep talks can transpire or in the very least people can discuss things that maybe they ordinarily wouldn’t. Perhaps taking someone into confidence or an attempt to transform a dynamic for the better or get a more objective view of powerful or instinctual urges or emotions. In either case, this can be an “interesting” day emotionally, socially and interpersonally. Late evening see’s the Moon trine Jupiter in compassionate Pisces, and this can see an idealistic, compassionate, dreamy, and creative atmosphere that can make for a nice ambiance, and something or someone can certainly stir our ideals or make us feel more hopeful, perhaps even restore our faith where it may have waned. It’s an emotionally and socially generous aspect that can take the edge off of the more intense and compelling undercurrents of the Moon/Venus/Pluto aspects.
SUN JUN 20.
Happy Summer Solstice, and Happy Fathers Day to all you dads out there! Today see’s the Moon enter instinctual Scorpio at 4:58 AM PST while trine the Sun in 29 degrees Gemini, trine Jupiter, and squaring Mars and Saturn, while opposite Uranus. Whoa now. This could represent some sort of curve ball, shock, or unexpected but surprising revelations. Jupiter in Pisces stations retrograde at 8:06 AM PST, where it will backtrack through Aquarius for a little refresher course. The Sun also makes it’s annual ingress into Cancer today at 8:32 PM PST. Happy Birthday Crabs! The Moon in intense and sensitive Scorpio can be highly sensitive to nuance and undercurrents with it’s trine to Jupiter, and the lunar square to Mars can potentiate some irritability or impulsiveness, while it’s square to Saturn can require emotional resilience, discipline and patience. The Moon/Uranus opposition adds yet another layer of complexity to the mix by suggesting the possibility for some curve balls, or erratic behavior, in the very least emotions and energy levels can fluctuate rapidly and be quite all over the map. There could be some possible challenges to navigate, maybe a need to think on our feet or innovate solutions, or seek an outlet for a whole lot of feelings. Moon in Scorpio square Mars in Leo is a classic signature of “Drama City”, although this is just one potential of this aspect, but it’s still wise to take care in social and interpersonal interactions and do what you can to duck out of controversy or avoid bombastic scenes or people with an axe to grind. There could simply be some impatience with something or someone, but conversely there could be a desire to take action in some regard, while maybe feeling a need to hold back, or feeling blocked somehow. Scorpio has deep reserves of willpower and the lunar/Saturn aspect offers resilience. There could be some interesting things going on for sure, and aside from any less desirable potentials in these aspects, it can be a quirky, freaky kind of atmosphere that can see people flying their freak flags in some type of way.
