Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: June 13, 2016 through June 19, 2016

The big news of this week is the second exact “hit” of the Saturn and Neptune square. The first encounter was exact on November 26, 2015 and the final encounter happens in September of 2016. This is the most significant astrological transit of 2016.

The energies of Saturn and Neptune do not work easily together and even less so in a square aspect. The square between them indicates that the two are in an ongoing argument. One insists on going in one direction, even as the other is moving at cross-purposes to the first.

Let’s consider what these two planets represent and why they struggle with each other even in the best of times. Saturn is the planet of structure and form. Saturn builds and maintains boundaries and fences designed to control, restrict, and keep us safe. Neptune, on the other hand, seeks to break down boundaries and dissolve barriers.

When two planets form a square aspect to each other, we must find a way to accommodate and work with both sides of the equation.

Neptune wants to lead us down pathways of spiritual awakening, creativity, music, poetry, and art. Neptune invites us to a spiritual path and then offers us a bottle of wine and the bong. She lures us into a boat in the middle of a lake with no cares in the world.

Saturn, on the other hand, shows us the real world, he is pragmatic and reminds us of the necessity of rules, restrictions, and responsibilities.

Anytime we have too much of one of these energies, we long for the other. Too much focus on a dream and we want reality. Too much restriction and we want that extra glass of wine.

Right now, we need to pay close attention to this balance. If you tend to be a practical, structured person, you must allow space to dream. If you tend to spend your life in soft spaces of spiritual transcendence, poetry, and wine, pay attention to reality, responsibilities, and play by the rules.

Bringing structure to transcendence even as we bring mystical awareness to our responsibilities will move us forward and ultimately land us is an interesting contemplation and a new awareness of our path forward.

CULTIVATE WISDOM

Monday, June 13, 2016:

The Moon is in Libra offering us the opportunity to start the week with everyone at least trying to ‘play nice’. The Moon’s only conversation with another celestial body (a transit), involves an acute interest in stabilizing our affections and connections with others.

At 9:26 PM EDT, she forms a sextile aspect with Saturn. This is definitely a ‘play nice’ evening. We are apt to see the best in each other and want to do what is needed to maintain close connections.

At 4:42 PM EDT, Neptune turns retrograde at 12° Pisces. Neptune will remain retrograde until November 20th at 9° Pisces. Anyone with personal planets or sensitive points between 8° Pisces – 13° Pisces, will be most powerfully impacted during this time.

While Neptune is retrograde, we can anticipate being more sensitive to intuition, suggestion, and dreams then usual. This may be a time when deep spirituality calls to you or you may be plagued by a vague sense of disconnection and dissatisfaction. It is important to pay careful attention to your use of drugs or alcohol and to your involvement with people who seriously drain your energy.

Use this time to connect to a higher purpose, to a deeper understanding of yourself and the world, and you may heal old wounds and grow in deep wisdom. If you are determined not to explore your inner awareness, you will be likely to struggle with the harsher manifestations of Neptune.

Develop your psychic perceptions, spiritual growth and wisdom, write poetry and music, and make space in you life to create art. Cultivate culture, beauty, and wisdom.

 

BREAKTHROUGH

Tuesday, June 14, 2016:

Tuesday begins with a brilliant sextile between the Sun and forward thinking Uranus. Open yourself to the possibility of a sudden breakthrough in self-understanding. We may experience the sudden awareness of a whole new way of living our most authentic truth.

However, even as we want to explore this progressive new offering, the Libra Moon forms harsh aspects to both Pluto and Uranus who would like to stop the whole thing dead in its tracks.

This fear is wholly based on an emotional level. Rather than considering your ‘feelings’, for today; set your feelings aside and simply ask: ”Who do you want to be? Follow the wisdom the answer offers rather than following your emotions.

Energies will calm considerably by bedtime as the Libra Moon forms a lovely trine to the Sun at 9:57 PM EDT. Enjoy an excellent night’s sleep.

 

A PATH OF HEALING

Wednesday, June 15, 2016:

Wednesday begins with a bit of sweetness as the Libra Moon forms a lovely trine to Venus.

At 9:19 AM EDT, the atmosphere shifts considerably as the Moon leaves the arena of co-operation to dive deeply into the powerful waters of Scorpio. In your interactions with others, you will not be content to stay on the surface, you must dig deeply.

Jealous and power issues may come to the surface, don’t try to sweep them under the rug.  Engage with the intensity while maintaining deep respect and kindness for yourself and others.

At 5:36 PM EDT, the Sun forms a square aspect to Chiron. Look for clarity regarding a deep inner wound that your awareness brings to mind at this time. Look carefully and you may see the lesson in what you previously felt victimized by. Open yourself to the path of healing that is offered. If you do not see it, just hold quietly until it reveals itself.

 

POWERFUL RENEWAL

Thursday, June 16, 2016:

Thursday, we can expect a highly sensitized, emotionally rich day. The Moon remains in the deep, powerful waters of Scorpio, as she forms lovely aspect to Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto.

These are powerful energies offering support for our opening to new ways to experience our current circumstances.

Consider yourself invited to experience a powerful renewal of your place in the world. The more we understand ourselves and our deeper connection to others, the more empowered our experience.

Allow yourself dreamtime. These dreams are rich with meaning and will deepen and expand your heart.

 

ACCEPT LIMITATIONS WITHOUT LOSING THE DREAM

Friday, June 17, 2016:

The Moon begins the day still in Scorpio until she enters Sagittarius at 9:34 PM EDT, lightening things up for the next few days.

Venus, the planet of love and beauty, has been curiously exploring her possibilities since entering Gemini on May 24th.

On Friday, she leaves Gemini behind to enter Cancer where her focus becomes softer, deeper, and more concerned with nurturing love. We man notice we are not as interested in lightly playing with love and are more focused on creating deep familial bonds of love.

The most significant astrological aspect on Friday is the second exact hit of the square between Saturn and Neptune. This is the most powerful over-riding transit of 2016. We see it reflected in politics and news stories every day.

Let’s consider what these two planets represent and why they struggle with each other, even in the best of times. Saturn is the planet of structure and form. Neptune, on the other hand, seeks to break down boundaries and dissolve barriers.

When two planets form a square aspect to each other, we must find a way to accommodate and work with both sides of the equation.

Anytime we have too much of one of these energies, we long for the other. Too much focus on a dream (Neptune) and we want reality (Saturn). Too much restriction (Saturn) and we want that extra glass of wine (Neptune). We need to pay close attention to this balance. If you tend to be a practical, structured person you must allow space to dream. If you tend to spend your life in soft spaces of spiritual transcendence, poetry, and wine, pay attention to reality, responsibilities, and play by the rules.

Bringing structure to transcendence even as you bring mystical awareness to your responsibilities will move us forward and ultimately land us is an interesting contemplation and a new awareness of our path forward.  This is about accepting our restrictions and limitations without losing the ability to move beyond those restrictions.

VISION & STRUCTURE

Saturday, June 18, 2016:

On Saturday, the Moon in Sagittarius keeps us focused on the challenges Saturn and Neptune brought on Friday. The Moon is conjunct Saturn and squares Neptune in the evening hours.

We must continue to work directly with the balance between restrictive rules and the freedom of our dreams for transcending those very rules. Embracing paradox is possible with a shift in perspective. Work to open your mind and heart to the possibility that we can hold both vision & structure within us concurrently.

While all of that is going on beneath the surface, you will want to plan for lovely Saturday with the Moon in Sagittarius. Plan a road trip or a gathering of friends. Don’t let the undercurrents of struggle take over your pleasure. Allow pleasure and fun to filter down and sooth the struggle.

 

EASE, FLOW, FUN

Sunday, June 19, 2016:

Sunday looks to be the best day of the weekend. With the fiery Sagittarius Moon trine Uranus at 8:11 PM EDT, there is excitement in the air. This would be a great way to end a weekend road trip on a high note. Alternatively, you may want to get out your maps and plan an upcoming adventure.

If you are feeling restless, get out there and find an adventure. It may be Sunday but you’ve gone to work on very little sleep before!

Find an adventure! It is Summer and the Sagittarius Moon is in the spirit to party. Don’t deny her that. We have pushed trough some rough stuff this weekend.

Allow ease, flow, and fun.

* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets.  I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods.  I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

* The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, textiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.

* The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
