PLAN A FUTURE ADVENTURE
Monday, June 20, 2022
The week begins with Mercury forming a sextile aspect to Jupiter. Sextiles offer opportunities. The opportunity here is to look toward your future and begin to develop a plan. You see the path forward.
This is a great time to actively discuss the future and elicit ideas from others. Your communication skills are strong and you are able to articulate ideas. Plan an upcoming adventure and diplomatically negotiate future plans or decisions.
At 11:10 PM ET, shortly before entering Aries (11:36 PM ET), the Pisces Moon forms its Last Quarter phase to the Sun. This suggests a time of release, a time to let go. When the Sun and Moon are in a square aspect to each other, they block each other’s path. In order to move forward something must change that releases powerful tension. Pay attention to your intuition. It will show you what needs to be released. Look for less than healthy emotional attachments as the probable thing that needs releasing.
During the Last Quarter phase, something is revealed, opening a pathway to the new cycle coming. We have the option to move toward the change or fight against it. Your understanding of yourself and life itself undergo continual change. We are all in the process of change which requires letting go of the past in order to embrace the future.
JUNE SOLSTICE – SUN ENTERS CANCER
Tuesday, June 21, 2022
You can expect a very dynamic day. The Sun enters the cardinal sign of Cancer at 5:13 AM ET and we begin Cancer Season, ushering in Summer in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun will remain in Cancer until July 22nd.
Life slows down as our attention turns to securing and protecting the nest (home) we have created for our home and family. It is time to settle down and release anxiety and find our safety and security. Emotions run deep as our feelings come into focus. This is a powerful time to get clear about what we need to feel comfortable, safe, and cared for.
When the Sun enters the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) we reach very dynamic times in the cycle of the year. Remember that in Western Astrology it is the seasons that create the placements of the signs. In the Northern Hemisphere at the two Solstices, we move from Spring to Summer (Sun enters Cancer) and from Fall to Winter (Sun enters Capricorn). at the two Equinoxes, we move from Summer to Autumn (Sun enters Libra) and from Winter to Spring (Sun enters Aries).
Besides that, while you slept Venus formed a trine aspect to Pluto intensifying passion and the power of your relationships. You feel an increase in the need to give and receive love and affection. This is a highly supportive aspect of your closest love relationship.
The Moon is in Aries, another of the cardinal signs today. This increases the dynamic nature of the day. Also, while the Sun is in Cancer (ruled by the Moon), we are more sensitive to the movement of the Moon. Keep this in mind during Cancer season. Today is a day for action, passion, protection, and love.
EXPANDING HORIZONS OF LOVE
Wednesday, June 22, 2022
Today the Moon moves through Aries, the Cardinal Fire sign that is ruled by Mars. This is a sign of singular, direct, and assertive action. The Aries Moon is always in search of a personal challenge to tackle without outside input. The challenge to look for is the one that takes courage and independence to accomplish. You probably have a good idea of what challenge is being referred to. Don’t second guess yourself. If you take action and end up falling on your face, remember that it is better to flop than to hold back out of fear or an overabundance of caution. Get up, dust yourself off and continue moving forward.
The desire to take action finally pulls away from the overriding vulnerability we have been immersed in over the past few days. The Moon continues through Aries, the sign of assertive direct action.
The Moon in Aries needs personal challenges that it can manage and complete on its own without outside input. Don’t second guess yourself. If the courageous action you take today results in your falling on your face, oh well. It is better to fall on your face than to hold back out of fear or too much caution.
When the Moon is in Aries we all may act without forethought. We are in a hurry and our emotions are less sensitive than usual. Watch out for the potentially loose cannon of your own thoughts, words, and actions. Doing your own thing, on your own is the best way to get anything done today.
Venus has been in Taurus since May 28th and now enters Gemini at 8:34 PM ET, where she will remain until July 17th. Our current ideas about personal love and money shift from a desire for stability to a need for variety, and easygoing social connections. We may find ourselves a bit distant emotionally as our connections are more intellectual than heart-focused. This is a time to expand your horizons and bond with loved ones on an intellectual plane.
CONSTANCY AND DETERMINATION
Thursday, June 23, 2022
The Moon enters the calm stable sign of Taurus at 7:58 AM ET. When the Moon is in this fixed earth sign folks are likely to have more patience than usual. We all are more interested in physical comfort, pleasure, and long-term goals. Taurus asks that we slow down and very deliberately set all hurry aside.
Taurus is a very physical sign and can be as immovable as the earth itself. This is a day to put one foot in front of the other, and take one step at a time. In a race between the tortoise and the hare, the tortoise wins by sheer constancy and determination to stay steadily focused on the path ahead.
Consider how to build stability in all aspects of your life. You (and others) will be slow to anger and will see the wisdom of steady unhurried progress. Build the basis of your long-term future on a solid foundation of sustained effort and attention to loyalty.
A FLY IN THE OINTMENT
Friday, June 24, 2022
Today the Moon continues its path through the calm realm of Taurus as we reach for the weekend ahead. The important things today will involve stability, comfort, beauty, and pleasure. Taurus is the fixed Earth sign, substantial, strong, and enduring. When the Moon is in Taurus we can accomplish almost anything that we take our time with. Patience and determination are strong.
However, there is a fly in the ointment. At 6:15 PM ET, the Moon conjunct Uranus can make all our expectations go a bit wonky. Something unexpected may defy all our best-laid plans. Do your best to stay steady in the face of whatever arises as it will pass quickly. Almost before you can react, the story will settle down and you can go back to creating that stable pathway forward.
On a practical level, this is a good day to get or give a massage, make a commitment to a partner, cook comfort food, and work in your garden.
SIMPLICITY AND PLEASURE
Saturday, June 25, 2022
Until 7:14 PM ET. the Moon remains in Taurus. She asks that we keep things simple until evening. The Moon in Taurus encourages us to indulge in sensual pleasures. Savor all that you encounter today. Don’t be in a hurry for anything. Cook a meal for friends and family. Arrange flowers for the table and the pleasure of those you bring to the meal. Invest time in what is important to the stable functioning of enjoyment and beauty. Keep it all as simple as possible.
Once the Moon enters Gemini at 7:14 PM ET, you can leave that ease behind. The rest of the weekend is best faced with curiosity and a wide array of friends and companions. When the Moon is in Gemini, we instinctively want to gather information, talk, and learn. We are motivated by intellectual interest and a variety of ideas and opinions.
Although the Gemini Moon can be a bit fickle, it is fun and brings activity and high energy to conversations.
HIGH ACTIVATION OF THE MIND
Sunday, June 26, 2022
With the Moon in Gemini, it is important to use your intellect and your voice today. Your mind is busy and you want to explore and share ideas and quick-moving conversations with others. You will want to cover a variety of topics with a rather light hand. The Gemini Moon is light-hearted and is not interested in deep, profound, or difficult topics.
Spend time with others in a social context and look for curiosity and excitement. We need connections with others and a high level of mental activity in order to maintain emotional equilibrium today. Notice how stimulating conversations and mental gymnastics help your emotions stabilize.
Gemini is a quick-moving mutable Air sign. Without mental stimulation, it is easy to become irritable or anxious. Keep your mind occupied with a variety of light-hearted tasks.
