This weekend could bring a summer high point, a gathering of like minds, rally for a cause, or a great day for a swim and a picnic as this morning’s full Moon in communal Aquarius illuminates our need for interconnection. This glowing Moon also opposes the Sun and Mercury shining in Leo which loan us the ability to shine and share ourselves. Venus joins the party as she retrogrades back in Leo over the weekend and approaches her second of three conjunctions to Jupiter this season. She also squares Saturn and so increase the outpouring of our emotions (Jupiter) just as she reminds us of our Saturnine responsibilities.

We just have to remember to share the limelight, because the difference between the gift of Leo and it’s shadow is the ability to respect others, to empathize and share with them. What a leonine gift it is to shine when we can also see the light in all others, and what a gift it is to be willing to have our authentic self truly be seen.

A Sun-Neptune quincunx over the weekend adds to this panache and imagination, but it doesn’t help us be realistic. The Moon enters Pisces on Saturday and Sunday, infuses all things creative and softening our hearts, but leaves us a bit raw and protective of our vulnerabilities. Let’s practice being fully present to the people around us, as they may need it.

We can too easily return to old emotional patterns or get tangled in a difficulty that has plagued us all month as Venus retrogrades back into Leo and squares Saturn again, but this time be able to break a cycle and experiment with a fresh approach that feels more aligned with our purpose. We can tap in to the extra free-floating emotions just spilling over all around us, but instead of getting caught up in the drama, just let it open the heart.

We’re much more ready to shift gears and take action on Monday and Tuesday as the Moon heads into proactive Aries while Mercury trines Uranus.

Over the next few weeks can feel momentum build in campaigns and our own progress and process as Saturn turns direct, it’s been retrograde since March 14, slowing us down and asking us to go back and do some foundational work. Pay attention to a review of issues with one’s father or father-like authority figures. Choose what teaching to keep and what to release, and build the strength of personal authority in the process.

Saturn squares Jupiter all week, which can lead to political stalemate, not that we’d really notice the difference these days, but one where the differences get articulated and underlined. Like they might be, for instance, by the image of Bernie Sanders running against Donald Trump. And as we articulate the difference, we also get the chance to reconcile or repair those differences, or find some common ground to build upon, if we so choose. All our ambitions begin to find its feet again, and we can bring a fresh, kinder mindset back to our long-term goals.

Friday, July 31: The Moon is full early this morning and calls our attention to all group dynamics, politics, gossip, and our communal sense that we are all one underneath. It also can entrench our stubborn side, but possibly for good cause. We want to know that no matter how busy our beloveds are, we are special to them, not a burden. Our mind and heart can disagree tonight; mediate between needs as the Moon opposes Mercury.

Moon opposed Sun 5:42 AM, Venus retrogrades back into Leo 10:27 AM, Moon opposed Mercury 9:25 PM

Saturday, August 1: Today brings magic, not logic or clarity as the Sun quincunx Neptune. Mornings hums with generosity, afternoon we grow edgier, more easily discouraged and need of support as the Moon squares restrictive Saturn and the Moon enters Pisces. Be direct about needs, avoid a sullen response to vulnerability. If a quirky concern or fear wriggles to the surface as Mercury bi-quintiles Pluto, get more information. We benefit from mutual gentleness tonight, take this softness as an opportunity for healing dreams.

Moon sextile Chiron to 11 AM, Sun quincunx Neptune 1:23 PM, Moon opposed Jupiter 2:15 PM, Moon squares Saturn 2:49 PM, Moon semi-square Pluto 3:23 PM, Moon oppose Venus 5:02 PM, Moon enters Pisces 5:36 PM, Mercury bi-quintile Pluto 11:06 PM

Sunday, August 2: After a magical, soft and squishy morning as the Moon conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, Take a subtle opportunity to grow in personal authority as Saturn turns direct. Take notes about the new ideas for long-term progress, but be patient and determined about how they unfold. Because we’re distracted by many different needs and ideas, our communication can be disjointed and off center mid-da unless we listen deeply as Mercury aspects unsettling Uranus and Chiron.

Saturn turns direct 12:52 AM, Moon semi-square Uranus 2:28 AM, Moon conjunct Neptune 8:27 AM, Mercury semi-square Uranus 9:50 AM, Mercury quincunx Chiron 3:01 PM, Moon sextile Pluto 3:39 PM.

Monday, August 3: We may be slow off the mark this morning under a sleepy Pisces Moon. And may not feel we have the energy to over come some intransigent contradictions in our life. If so, it will help to accomplish one, small, doable thing, and then another, until the momentum builds. Enthusiasm picks up this afternoon as the Moon forms a grand trine in water signs, with Mars in Cancer and Saturn in Scorpio. We can speak about future actions our hearts demand, and then kick into gear later as the Moon enters active Aries.

Moon conjunct Chiron 3:28 AM, Moon quincunx Mercury 5:20 AM, Jupiter square Saturn 5:36 AM, Moon trine Mars 12:49 PM, Moon trine Saturn 3:35 PM, then VOC, Moon enters Aries 6:23 PM

Tuesday, August 4: This will be a hard day to be bored; make this day action- packed and eventful, versus melodramatic. Just do it, as the Aries Moon tines the Sun. If tension arises because achieving goals seems like a struggle, let’s not buy the melodramatic thought that all are out to frustrate our plans, or that we are all alone in this work, but instead follow any lines of opportunity to make progress. Restraint helps, redirect temper flashes into mutual support and satisfying work. Success is the best medicine, and the best revenge.

Jupiter sesqui-quadrate Pluto 2:22 PM, Moon trine Sun 2:23 PM, Venus conjunct Jupiter 4:46 PM, Moon square Pluto 4:50 PM, Venus sesqui-quadrate Pluto 6:14 PM

Wednesday, August 5: Take any green lights and run with them as the Moon conjuncts energizing Uranus, trines Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter. Check with logic as well as heart, but say yes wherever possible. Share heart, people need effusive signs of love and respect. Let opinions flow, just try to keep them focused on desired outcomes. We love the people that help us this afternoon, and get crabby when people are in our way. The Moon enters Taurus tonight, slows down, asks us to get more comfortable, and firms up plans. So make changes earlier,

Moon conjunct Uranus for 20 1 AM, Venus square Saturn 10:08 AM, Moon trine Mercury 2:25 PM, Moon square Mars 5:06 PM, Moon trine Venus 5:21 PM, Moon trine Jupiter 6:29 PM then VOC, Venus semi-sextile Mars 8:23 PM, Moon enters Taurus 8:29 PM

Thursday, August 6: Identify the most urgent need, and attend to it, even of the hammock calls and entropy maximizes. Once we’re in action, we can make steady, enduring progress as Mars trines Saturn, but if we sit still, we’ll tend to stay that way. We need to blend aesthetics with function, world with our love life, rather than see these needs competing as Venus and Mercury square Saturn. Relationships may take care and negotiation, and a common goal to work on when other conflicts get in the way. Practice good relationship skills rather than test the love; it may feel awkward and self conscious at first, but will produce much better results.

Sun quincunx Pluto 2:30 AM, Mars trine Saturn 3:29 AM, Mercury conjunct Venus 9:24 AM, Moon sex tile Neptune 12:20 PM, Mercury squares Saturn 3:19 PM, Mercury semi-square Pluto 6:23 PM, Moon trine Pluto 7:44 PM, Moon square Sun 9:02 PM, Mercury semi-sextile Mars 9:59 PM

We need to be extra loving this week. We can be emotional, need to make changes, and have to deal with stressful occurrences, and mutual support helps. The week may also bring abundance, but let’s not take our loved ones for granted. The busier we get, the more love we will need.

The Sun and Mercury run together in abundant, friendly, extroverted if stubborn Leo, and encourage us to connect and increase our need to feel seen. But as the weekend begins a private Scorpio Moon and reserved Venus in Virgo (still close enough to Jupiter to be extra juicy) make us ambiguous about this whole sociability thing. We can feel a real approach avoidance conflict, and will need time both in privacy or quiet companionship, and time engaged in the heart of all things. The tension between these two sides of ourselves can make us a little uncomfortable and cause us to send out mixed signals, just as others could all use a little extra reassurance that they are loved and wanted.

Cross currents layer into this conflicting mood over the weekend as tempestuous Mars squares energizing and change inducing Uranus, just as Uranus turns retrograde. If we’re irritable, let’s be honest about it. Notice a desire to make changes just for the sake of making changes nudging around the edges of an otherwise beautiful time. And just when we’d like to make some progress a longer-term change we’ve been working on may be put on hold while we go tend other work for a few months.

The weather may get stormy, maybe it’s just our interpersonal interactions. This edginess nudges political undercurrents and social justice discontent; Mars square Uranus doesn’t want to put up with it anymore, whatever it is that bothers us. But we can use this restless combustion-engine of an aspect to engage the world bravely, whether were hiking up a mountain or tackling practicalities. Let’s just not tackle one another.

Venus retrograde for the next few weeks can bring back old friends and old faces, or old relationship dynamics we haven’t seen for a while. The mood becomes more inspired and accepting on Sunday as the Moon enters Sagittarius and the Sun bi-quintiles Neptune. Share a dream, share a moment of heart and spirit, and slough off the irritations.

A new determination arises midweek as an industrious Capricorn Moon kicks us into gear, and the Mercury-Pluto quincunx can stir some old ghosts, or strange power dynamics and make us wonder if we really are enough. Underneath the Leo hopes that we can do anything, and the Plutonian concerned that we can do nothing, is the quiet endurance of the fixed signs that gently reminds us of the power of our experience.

The weekend ends on a social high note as the Moon enters collective Aquarius, the coming full Moon in Aquarius is one of the best times to gather with beloveds all year long, and feel the presence of supportive souls.

Friday, July 24: Can’t live with people, can’t live without them; we can feel enthusiastically ambiguous about this whole human relationship thing as the Scorpio Moon squares the Leo Sun. People need attention and privacy at the same time, ask important questions of events, but honor any “do not disturb” signs upon people, and they will warm-up in a day or two. Notice the emotional signals and body language sent out, as people are reading both our words and our energy, and be can be confused and defensive if signals conflict. Feel the enthusiasm to just do something, anything, about urgencies, just do it safely. The energy feels more sultry and supportive later tonight.

 

12:04 AM, Moon trine Neptune 2:40 PM, Mercury bi-quintile Neptune 8:22 PM Moon sextile Pluto 11:23 PM

 

Saturday, July 25: The mood and power dynamics really swirl, with a strong thread of impatience running through. Mechanical difficulties and know-how abound. Keep this energy on track with forgiveness and affection, as impatience can really pull us off track. Be suspicious of sudden decisions made this morning as Mars squares Uranus, make sure they really are in one’s best interest. Pay attention around fire and sharp objects. Honor political unrest in the culture and in the family; people who have felt endangered before, need to feel heard now. Afternoon is more positively dynamic as the Moon trines Mars and Chiron, and softens this evening with thoughtful abundance.

Venus retrogrades 4:28 AM, Mars squares Uranus 3:42 AM, Moon trine Mars 12:49 PM, Moon trine Chiron 1:32 PM, Moon square Jupiter 11:54 PM

Sunday, July 26: The mood is more accepting, cheerfully engaged, willing to explore as the Moon enters exploratory and cheerful Sagittarius. Under stress we may want to get away from it all and go on an adventure. Minor aspects between Mercury and Chiron as well as between the Sun and Neptune can confuse us, soften our edges, but make us willing to be helpful. We just need to make sure we listen as much as we say, and really share the limelight.

Mars trine Chiron 2:06 AM, Moon conjunct Saturn 3:14 AM, Mercury sesquiquadrate Chiron 4:01 AM, Moon semi-square Pluto :06 AM, Uranus retrograde 4:37 AM, Moon enters Sagittarius 6:24 AM, Moon square Venus 7:48 AM, Sun bi- quintile Neptune 910:04 AM, Moon trine Sun 12:55 PM, Moon trine Mercury 8:26 APM, Moon square Neptune 11:43 PM

Monday, July 27: Take this day as is, take it off and enjoy the summer if possible. We get a break from some of the heavier energies but may not be so realistic as Mercury quincunx imaginary intuitive Neptune. We may feel unusually sensitive to our surroundings and need time outside and honoring the natural world. A warm sense of humor can help keep us moving. But confirm data if there is disagreement, clear up the fog, and otherwise let the mind float and the body wander. We have some internal catching up to do.

Mercury quincunx Neptune 5:05 PM, Moon trine Uranus 8 PM. Moon square Chiron 9 PM

Tuesday, July 28: Unless we have lists or a plan, we can putter inefficiently. But the meandering can prepare us to this afternoon as the Moon enters industrious Capricorn and trines Venus. Form follows function, beauty can be practical, and diplomacy can get the work done. A wafting world-weariness needs respect but not attention; bring thoughts back to what’s working.

Moon trine Jupiter 8:36 AM, then VOC, Moon enters Capricorn 1:47 PM, Moon trine Venus to 40 4 PM,

Wednesday, July 29: We have a lot to do, and can get it done through teamwork rather than specific efficiency if we can let go of an illusion that we know how it needs to be done, and they don’t. Rain showers of depression or inadequacy possible this afternoon as the Moon and Mercury interact with Pluto; don’t believe the story, don’t sulk, do let it be motivation. If feeling lonely, reach out to someone else who also needs connection.

Moon sextile Neptune 4:49 AM, Sun sesquiquadrate Chiron 4:55 AM, Moon semi-square Saturn 11:41 AM, Moon conjunct Pluto 12:23 PM, Mercury quincunx Chiron 9:21 PM

Thursday, July 30: It could be just a good morning with a touch of attitude. A subtle but confusing Mars-Neptune aspect can leave us less decisive than we’d like, and help us see that our situation is more complex and requires both strength and sensitivity. It’s easy (but unproductive) to argue over ideologies or beliefs, or hold other people inappropriately responsible for our disappointments. Tonight the Aquarian Moon brings up support and camaraderie, helps us find it all easier to do if we do it together.

Moon square Uranus 12:50 AM, Moon opposed Mars 6:24 AM, Moon semis square Neptune seven own 6 AM, Moon sextile Saturn 1:49 PM then VOC, Mercury by quintile Chiron 1:56 PM, Moon enters Aquarius 4:40 PM, Mars success could quadrate Neptune 9:29 PM

On the surface layer we have a nice sociable, Sunny summer’s week ahead. The season-long Venus-Jupiter conjunction continues to glow in the western evening sky and warm our hearts, stir creativity, and encourage our sociability. These two together expand all of our feelings, and enjoyment of a pleasant afternoon or the flirtation of a new romance through our darker emotions. But they always call us back to our heart, and ask us to find a more compassionate and creative way forward. Venus is her absolute brightest now as she begins to move between us and the Sun and gets ready to retrograde July 26- Sept 7, let her beauty pour us.

We’ll need all the love we can get this week as we also head into some tense aspects that require a productive use of discontent, even on a lovely summer day. These aspects will encourage us to break down and rebuild some structure in our lives that’s not quite working, whether it’s our front porch or the economic state of the European Union.

Mental Mercury is busy this week; it bi-quintiles Saturn on Saturday, semi-squares Jupiter and trines intuitive Neptune on Monday. Mercury then joins Mars on Wednesday and both approached a potentially scary and depressing opposition to transformative Pluto, and both square change-invoking Uranus over the next two weeks. Whenever the faster moving planet’s tag off Uranus and Pluto, which they will do several times a year ( if not always in tandem like Mercury and Mars are doing now), they dance on and stimulate the world changes instigated as Uranus and Pluto squared off from 2012-2015.

Underneath iced tea on the front steps and other Venusian summery glory, Pluto and Uranus bring our minds to whatever we worry about, wherever we wonder if we have the chops to proceed, or feel like our life is not living up to our potential. Our attention may be brought to a secret grief or concern to or bring simple damage by blustering winds or scalding word. They can give us the muscles to do big macho projects, but also increase accidents. So let’s be careful with one another.

We can let this murky Pluto-Mercury aspect remind us of the ephemeral sweetness of the moment and use it to make the most of our time. Instead of feeling stuck in the darkness, let’s honor any free-floating sad memories and let them flow, feel the gap between who we are and where we want to be, and, while being kind to ourselves, use it to stimulate us to action. Let’s forgive ourselves and occasional moment of overwhelm and practice good self-care. Build our resilience by availing ourselves to the beauty of the summer and the support of people around us.

For a few global hotspots these aspects turn up the heat and can bring problems to boil. But we don’t have to use this energy for conflict. We can compete with our personal best. We can tackle our problem that needs all of our attention. We can make a decisive statement to a difficult relative or tackle the toughest issue in our house and really take it on. We can confront our contribution to global warming. But if we don’t have a worthy task or opponent we can get snarky with one another. If we feel this irritable energy rising, let’s look for a problem that the family can tackle together rather than make each other the problem.

The weekend begins under a sybaritic Taurus Moon, good for delicious picnics and visits with friendly if intransigent relatives. Important conversations begin on Sunday under the Gemini Moon, though information comes in bits and pieces of broken conversation. But this can lead to some form of crises midweek as Mercury and Mars conjunct and oppose Pluto. In response to this tension some people fall back on their most familiar or conservative views. We’ll have the creativity to resolve these issues quickly if we’re willing to honor each other’s need for safety and security in the process.

But this can lead to some form of crises midweek as we head into the new Moon in Cancer as Mercury and Mars conjunct and oppose Pluto. We’ll be able to find creative answers quickly if we’re willing to honor each other’s need for safety and security in the process.

Friday, July 10: We’ll be frustrated if we try to hurry people or change their minds, but a nice settled pace allows us to sink in our teeth into work that takes diligence and curiosity as the Taurus Moon trines Pluto. Summer beckons us to indulge. Evening is perfect for a slow foods meal as the Moon sextiles the Sun, though a cranky spell may kick in towards midnight.

Moon sextile Neptune 6:28 AM, Moon and sextile Mars 8:26 AM, Moon trine Pluto 2:24 PM, Moon sextiles Sun 10:07 PM, Moon semi-sextile Mercury 11:50 PM,

Saturday, July 11: A mental nervous tic needs attention on an otherwise delicious Saturday morning; a minor Mercury-Saturn aspect can cause us to chew productively upon a problem. The hardware store beckons us to get supplies needed to complete unfinished projects, and we’ll rest better when we tackle them. If there’s some disagreement about priorities midafternoon, don’t try to convince others to do what you want to do, cheerfully agree to tend to your own. It’s easy to obsess about our romances or interpersonal dynamics today, but won’t be productive; much of these knots will dissolve in a few hours. Late afternoon, if it’s hard to accomplish anything, give in and put the feet up. Let Saturday renew. We get lighten up and get a second wind tonight as the Moon enters mobile Gemini.

Mercury bi-quintile Saturn 1:20 AM, Moon square Jupiter 6:55 AM, Moon semi-square Mars 12:04 PM, Moon square Venus 1:57 PM, Moon opposed Saturn 3:52 PM, then Moon VOC until Moon enters Gemini 6:16 PM,

Sunday, July 12: Unexpected advanced may surprise us. The energy is disjointed and easily interrupted, our nerves can still feel a little frazzled and focus is hard to find as the Sun squares Uranus. But in this interrupted energy flow, we can make change. It’s a good day for relocating, travelling, or reorganizing; productive use of discontent. We may be have to incorporate information that’s uncomfortable or changes our plans in response, or just want to act out. Let’s not take one another’s static personally, but use the disconnected energy to unhinge from places where we felt stuck, and begin to conceive of positive changes going forward.

Moon semi-squares Sun 2:37 AM, Moon semi-square Uranus 3:56 AM, Moon square Neptune 11:18 AM, Sun square Uranus 8:52 PM,

Monday, July 13: Use this interestingly productive day to either relax near water as Mercury trines oceanic Neptune, or to envision a difference, and engage the conversation to help make it so. We really can think outside the box and use our imagination to solve problems and communicate. Write, express the soul through words. Tonight, though, our mind needs a rest; we may really need to step out and let the wheels spin.

Mercury semi-square Jupiter 6:08 AM, Mercury trine Neptune 1:13 PM, Moon sex tile Jupiter 1:20 PM, Sun trine Chiron 8:53 PM, Moon sextile Venus 9:31 PM, then Moon VOC

Tuesday, July 14: Tension or discomfort begins to build today as the Moon wanes in deep feeling Cancer while emotional Venus squares Saturn. It’s easy to feel a little sulky, and want the world to prove that we’re safe and loved, or else. We may be prone to testing relationships when what we really need to do is support and structure. Deal with how form can support function, how strength can create beauty. Nurture oneself and signal to beloveds that they are safe and cared for. Don’t ask people to take business risks today or tomorrow.

Moon enters Cancer 1:14 AM, Venus squares Saturn 1:47 AM, Mars sesquiquadrate Saturn 3:26 PM, Moon semi-square Jupiter 6:16 PM, Moon trine Neptune 6:47 PM

Wednesday, July 15: This could be a busy and difficult astrological day, so lead with kindness, empathy, and stay grounded. Mercury and Mars conjunct and oppose Pluto, and could bring us some conflict or difficulty to a head. It’s a great time to deconstruct the house for renovation, to get out aggressions and give in to a desire to break down and rebuild in a safe and productive way. Watch that destructive energy doesn’t lash out unnecessarily. Be careful around sharp implements. Walk away from a fight with beloveds until ready to listen with an open heart; assume any tension is underlying anxiety speaking, and not the real feelings. After the new Moon around 9:24 PM we can feel a turning point towards rebuilding and nurturing.

Moon conjunct Mars 1:49 AM, Moon opposed Pluto to 10 AM, Venus semi-square Mars 7:54 AM, Mars opposed Pluto 8:12 AM, Venus sesquiquadrate Pluto 8:27 AM, Mercury sesquiquadrate Saturn 11:49 AM, Moon square Uranus to 10 PM, Mercury opposed Pluto 5:39 PM, Moon conjunct the Sun 7:24 PM, Mercury semi-square Venus 7:32 PM, Mercury conjunct Mars 10 of 14 p.m.,

Thursday, July 16: A new beginning, a chance to recover, a deep breath, and our resilience may have been tested yesterday, today we need to take care of ourselves and consider our next moves. Our defenses are heightened; we need to reach into our maturity to make balanced decisions to move forward. Interesting decisions can be made around home, homeland, and nesting. Late afternoon grows more expansive, sociable, yet with a hunger for intensity.

Mercury conjunct Mars 12:14 AM, Moon trine Saturn 7:24 AM, and then VOC, Moon enters Leo 10:14 AM

What does freedom mean to us? On this Fourth of July weekend, benevolent Venus conjuncts expansive, freedom-loving Jupiter, thoughtful Mercury sextiles it, and energizing Mars semi-squares Jupiter, and all these aspects will beg that question. We can appreciate a strong tribal quality this weekend, and need to think about where we belong. Are we thinking of the tribe of our insular family, our particular cultural and political niche? Or can we expand our tribe to include all sentient beings on earth, all our relations.

Because the planets like to work across the board, we’re asked to contemplate this question– what does freedom mean, what’s the cost, how do we guarantee others’ freedom as well as our own—every which way, on a political, economic, and spiritual level. Venus-Jupiter conjunct in expansive Leo and so suggests that whatever we do will tend to be on a grand scale. Communicative Mercury sextiles Jupiter and encourages us to discuss freedom in all its many forms. Mars challenges Jupiter and instigates us to us wrestle over opinions or play fiercely. This Mars-Jupiter aspect can also leave us prone towards accidents, so let’s be careful around flammable material, political topics, and personalities.

Right now our Sun is in an unusually active phase, it’s spitting out solar flares which energize our magnetic field and creates geomagnetic storms. When the Sun flares, the current aspects are energized and the volume turns up on history. The recent Supreme Court decisions are one example positive example, the European financial crisis less comfortable form. Statements or events may occur which can trigger a real shift in the course of fate. Everybody just gets excited, even the electrons, and will ask what they can use any help electrical others are broad and singing to us again as the northern lights shimmer near the polls.

This holiday weekend begins under a communal, picnic-oriented Aquarius Moon. We respond well to fireworks, a wonderful collective art form, parades, and all other events that promote community more than intimacy. It would be a good weekend to check in with friends who are housebound or isolated, and invite them along. We may enjoy the crowd more than usual, and even if we don’t feel like going, it’s nice to feel included. Just keep the agenda loose, because most of us will resist heavy expectations.

Freedom: watch that word bandied around by political candidates, the cost and gift of freedom. On a personal note we may see a rash of yard sales as people want to be free of excess clutter and memorabilia they no longer need to carry around. We may long to drop an old anger or clear our life of angry people, or find a way to free ourselves of the limiting self-doubt. Because the Sun and Mars are also in security-loving Cancer, we may be tempted to step away from a job or relationship that feels confining, but may not be ready to endanger our comfort. So let’s enjoy a break this weekend then work on how we can bargain and negotiate for a less encumbered, more spacious relationship or workplace.

On Sunday the energy turns paradoxically more muscular and more sensitive. Maybe it’s just a hangover from July 4 picnics, maybe we need a break, or maybe we need to chew on the deeper issues and costs of freedom. Monday is a day to sleep in and rest up, and contemplate the ephemeral quality of beauty as the Sun opposes Pluto. It brings us to the bittersweet quality of letting go. We will also feel rumbles in the background of discontented grumbling and potential saber rattling at the edges of a power-play. We can easily crossed signals and grumble at one another or at an imaginary slight. It’s an important time to hold our ground and insist on fairness for all.

Mars also trines Neptune this week and brings up questions around acts of faith, what can we do in the name of our faith, where are we using faith, philosophy, or religion to live by, and where do we use it to hide behind. Once we enter the Neptune realm, it’s not about logic. Let’s just own that.

Midweek the Moon enters feisty Aries just as Mercury enters touchy Cancer and amps up the charge on those questions we pondered over the weekend. Our histamines levels can be higher than usual so we react allergic to pollen, nasty people, and other irritants.

The aspects of this last week echoing in recent events have helped us reassess our situation and may clarify what we need to concentrate upon for the next few months. Rather than get depressed about this new awareness of the work ahead (though that may easy to do), we can use it as a strategic planning incentive and feel how much support is actually available.

Friday, July 3: A glitch or communication snafu this morning can bring up some old sore point or remind us of unfinished business. Later, the day smooths out though people start getting vacation mind early on, and it’s hard to complete or follow through. By dinnertime, when Mercury sextiles Jupiter, we want to be free of our mundane week and are ready to step out of the ordinary. We may not want to hear bad news or difficult logistics at the moment, so keep comments directed towards what’s needed for a positive outcome, and get more cooperation. It’s easy to open lines of communication as long as we honor the flow of conversation, take turns and make room in our cadence for everyone.

Moon sextile Saturn 4:37 AM, Moon enters Aquarius 6:20 AM, Mercury square Chiron 9:06 AM, Moon sets required draped Mercury 6:12 PM, Mercury sextile Jupiter 6:53 PM,

Saturday, July 4: The mood wanderers sociably, but we may not want to get too close, and we need to move in our own time. Meander the day away. Watch out for an opinionated, accident-prone or cranky phase early this evening; be careful with those fireworks and with a tendency to over-do. But we may have the capacity to enjoy a crowd more than usual, to feel the buzz of humankind, as long as we know our escape route if needed. The crowd’s fine, crowding is not. Lovely Mercury sextile Venus encourages camaraderie and more coziness late tonight.

Moon sextile Uranus 4:15 PM, Moon sesqui-quadrate Mars 7:07 PM, Moon opposed Jupiter 7:36 PM, Moon trine Mercury 10:13 PM, Moon opposed Venus 10:31 PM,

Sunday, July 5: We can get both more sensitive and edgier today as the Moon enters intimate but easily- bruised Pisces just as Mars forms a challenging semi-square to Jupiter and brings out our pugnacious streak. Difficult relatives bring up politics, but not because they want an open discussion. One good way of using this energy to engage muscular effort on something sensitive and creative: garden, paint, and beautify surroundings. Be careful to not manipulate today, even if feeling emotionally needy and wanting others to cooperate to make one feel safer, manipulation will tend to backfire. Be honest and caring instead, and notice that gets better results. We may feel we have to make difficult decisions tonight as the Sun tangles with Saturn, if so, let’s set clean clear solid boundaries now so we can back off and be more open later.

Mercury sextile Venus 2:18 AM, Moon squares Saturn 6:31 AM, Moon semi-square Pluto 7:11 AM then VOC, Moon enters Pisces 8:22 AM, Mars semi-square Jupiter 9:45 AM, Moon semi- square Uranus 5:16 PM, Moon trine Mars 9:19 PM, Sun sesqui- square Saturn 11:23 PM

Monday, July 6: Sleep in and drift away this morning as the Moon conjuncts Neptune in Pisces and trines the Sun. Later, notice a judgmental streak, towards self or others, and drop it as the Sun opposes Pluto. Be bigger than that. The holiday fog can begin to clear and we see the work, effort left that needs to be tackled in the months ahead as the Sun opposes Pluto. If we’re not judge mental to towards others, we’ll feel better about ourselves. It’s easy to feel inadequate or feel like we have too little resources to tackle the work at hand, but we can use this to focus efforts rather than just get depressed.

Tuesday, July 7: We may still be slow off the mark this morning, as if our brains are still on vacation even when our feet take us back to work as the Moon squares Mercury, let people be a bit squishy and amorphous. The mood changes around noon as the Moon enters edgy or Aries, we can feel the momentum pick back up, for better or worse. So let’s make sure we aim ourselves in a good direction, be creative rather than reactive. A hidden or delayed ambition knocks on the door and asks for some time. Tonight, were not feeling particularly cooperative, will tend to think other people are doing it all wrong, so really, we don’t need the help as Mercury quincunx Saturn.

Moon square Mercury 6:56 AM, Moon trine Saturn 8:35 AM, and then VOC, Moon enters Aries 10:37 AM

Wednesday, July 8: We can make jerky moves or slight klutzy efforts to make progress but somehow will tend to drag our feet this morning. The situation may be more complicated than we think, even if we’re raring to go, as the Aries Moon squares Pluto. Mars trines Neptune and helps us let go of an anger and find our vision again, but we may need to move into a more forgiving place to free up the energy we need. Feels good to be near water, too put effort behind our craft are our. Tonight as Mercury enters cancer our story becomes more important.

Thursday, July 9: There’s some sweet and beautiful energy available this morning, we long for a more beautiful world and may be unusually willing to work towards that goal as the Aries Moon trines Venus and Jupiter. It could be something simple, but let’s take a step in that direction. If an opportunity cracks open, it needs to be seized now. We also want to feel an energy exchange with the people we know and love, so it’s important to greet our beloveds warmly and connect with them. However briefly, make it authentic and intense. If we feel ignored we will get ornery. The Moon enters more settled and sensual Taurus this afternoon as Mercury quintiles Uranus and leaves us a little edgy and nervous, but this energy can be turned into a special kind of genius.

This weekend we may feel deeply ambiguous about humanity in general and people in particular.  We can feel both content with our beautiful relationships and yet simultaneously cynically fed up with people’s inhumanity to people, torn between diving into life wholeheartedly and going on solitary retreat. Venus and Jupiter conjunct for many weeks in extroverted Leo call us out to the party, conference, or arts festival,  while the Moon in Scorpio and Sun and Mars in Cancer can leave us introspective, potentially suspicious, and in desperate need of some time alone.

Because of this conflict we may feel unusually tender or vulnerable and be tempted to overdo or overreact; we may want to leave town rather than take a break, or bite back rather than set a calm boundary. We may find great last-minute excuses to not join the parade. Maybe we need to fix the motor, dig in our garden, or engage in some other solitary pursuit in order to get socially acceptable privacy. Or we may need to meditate on the ephemeral beauty of the moment in light of the impermanence of existence. That Scorpio Moon encourages us to engage intensely or dive below the surface and think about the deeper aspects of life this weekend.

This lineup can help us examine something uncomfortable, if we choose to do so. It can help us look squarely at what bothers or repulses us, and then ask that creative Venus-Jupiter conjunction to help us find a clear, clean, strong loving path towards a solution, if we’re not too busy or irritated to listen.

Early next week our mood can relax but we may still find something to worry about or in engage in a troubling conversation as Mercury forms a challenging aspect Pluto. If so, we can rely on the Sagittarian Moon to help us by employing simple honesty. Just speak up, leave out the loaded terms, keep comments simple and stay in the present moment.

 

Our social political restlessness picks up speed and we can itch for a change of people, place or aesthetics as Venus trines Uranus. The Sagittarius moon forms a grand trine with Venus and Uranus and opens doorways to great pickup lines and handsome strangers and other serendipitous and unusual meetings, if we can get out of our house and give serendipity a chance.

Our ongoing loves can also be energized if we don’t take one another for granted but rather look at our old loves as fresh opportunity for joy. Because it’s not such a realistic time, even if we meet a beautiful stranger, let’s stay in the public eye with them until we know them better. This trine also speaks of the transformative power of love; expressions of solidarity and warmth can support a subtle transformation going on within and without.

Midweek we may need to readjust our goals in response to new information, but let’s make sure it’s neither laziness nor giving into a fear of failure. Some events may trigger our memory of a previous failure or words of doubt once whispered in our ears and can undermine our confidence. We can either get caught up in this dynamic again, or choose to heal it as Jupiter and Venus both quincunx Chiron while the Moon waxes full in industrious Capricorn.

Friday, June 26: Reach out this morning; ask for any necessary favors early in the day because we become more suspicious, internal, and persnickety as the Moon enters Scorpio midday. Afternoon encourages us to make surgical decisions, what do we need to cut out, attach, weed, reorganize as the Moon trines Mars. Tonight, our humor sharpens and the mood grows musky, we send messages through body language even though we may appear emotionally guarded. Be prepared to either share at a deep level, take time alone, or enjoy solitude in a crowd on this intense night.

Moon VOC until it enters Scorpio 11:56 AM, Moon trine Mars 3 PM, Moon trine Sun 10:12 PM.

Saturday, June 27:  Let’s immerse ourselves in something, anything: a cause, a pond, a project, a parade or shamanic journey. Use beautiful grand trine in water signs (Scorpio Moon, Sun in Cancer, Neptune in Pisces) to perceive and focus. Because our emotional antennae are highly tuned and our feelings are a little touchy, it helps to either be alone or with like souls and share a common goal close to the heart. If we feel interrupted or don’t have a place to put this focus- or feel unsafe or over-loaded, this deep vein of feeling can turn to a craving for some intense experience or will snap into a scorpion sting. Tonight we are prone to excess as the Sun semi-squares Jupiter; our attention is brought to where we feel free and unfettered, and where we still feel constrained.

Moon trine Neptune 7:09 AM, Moon quincunx Mercury 3:02 PM, Moon sextile Pluto 4:05 PM, Sun semi-square Jupiter 5:53 PM

Sunday, June 28: It’s a heavy day, no matter how delightful the sunlight, though we can use this heaviness well. Dig deep, build foundations, plant roots, or protest injustice. Do not believe the murmur of depression or inevitability. Notice the habits of loneliness, own up to the need for solitude, and take responsibility for reaching out beyond that to create connection. Don’t go looking for the pain, make no assumptions about the future but trust the potential of change as Mercury quincunx Pluto. Dinner time is thoughtful but our mood lifts later; fresh honesty and the natural world can soothe and brighten our soul as the Moon enters Sagittarius

Monday, June 29: A lovely socially-restless Venus-Uranus trine can make us footloose and long to be fancy free. It’s a wonderful day to experiment with a new approach or walk barefoot on the sand, hard to get people to knuckle down to work. If we schedule in the wandering time, our work moments actually get more productive. It may be time to start a new chapter. Share excitement, exploration, a hope for change. Midafternoon can bring sleepiness or uncertainty as the Moon squares Neptune, clarify facts and let the mind drift in productive ways.

Venus trine Uranus 12:26 AM, Moon quincunx Mars 3:20 AM, Moon quincunx Sun 11:25 AM, Moon square Neptune 3:11 PM,

Tuesday, June 30: Morning brings opportunities that could open doors (though we have to step through) as the Moon forms a creative and freedom-loving grand trine with Uranus, Venus, and Jupiter. While the gateways are open and possibilities abound, let’s ask what our loving creativity want to bring forth. Make overtures now. Later on, the energy becomes more disconnected and can tap-dance on some old wound that affects our ability to love or create in the moment as Venus quincunx Chiron and brings an opportunity to forgive and expand beyond that old pain. We can do it.

Wednesday, July 1: It’s time to get down to it; work we avoided earlier in the week now becomes do as the Moon waxes full in industrious Capricorn. We can get easily frustrated with one another, or with our own path, if it doesn’t seem to be moving fast enough, but let’s not take this urgency out on one another– particularly midday as the Moon opposes volatile Mars. Notice and hold ground– but don’t take the bait– around arguments of authority or chain of command, or whose plans win. Find a way to shift the power dynamics to just get the work done; turn this impatience into competence, Capricorn’s gift. Tonight’s full moon full moon at 8:19 PM MDT can trigger our control issues but is a good time to make a pact to balance personal life and work life in a way that expands both.

Thursday, July 2: It helps to work off our difficult moods this morning as the waning Capricorn Moon pulls away from its conjunction to Pluto. If some people complain about odd and apparently irrelevant things to express their discomfort, look to a feeling of inadequacy or loss underneath. As the day progresses, although we may still run uncomfortable energy and feel nervous or impatient about some corner of our lives, yesterday’s conflicts can bring today’s ingenuity as Mercury sextiles inventive Uranus. If our minds obsess on a problem, it pays to drop it, tackle something completely different, and then circle back to the problem from a different direction. The mood softens around dinnertime; social graces can ease the way past earlier friction.

( all times MDT)

This week the energy still swirls oddly even as events pick up speed. Mercury, patron saint of communication and modernity, turned direct yesterday but we’re not out of the mental fog yet. Mercury forms a challenging square to confusing Neptune (which turns retrograde today) one more time before it appears to pick up speed at the end of June.

This means we can both finally get those emails sent, yet continue to enjoy this summer’s imaginative Neptunian haze of soggy weather and unusual sensitivity. But we’ve got some cleanup work to do this week to straighten out delays, kinks, or misunderstandings that recently occurred. We may not even know about some of the glitches yet, or some of the crazy thoughts, but we’ll find out as we go along and then can get them sorted.

To help us clear this lingering haze we can call on an undercurrent of impatient brave physicality that kicks in as the Sun conjuncts energizing Mars while Mercury forms an irritatingly urgent semi-square with Uranus on Sunday. We want to get on with our life, may be ready to pivot or change direction and can easily get irritable about delays, as well as about the quirks of the human psyche (including our own). But let’s just chill and deal with it; an accepting attitude with wry, humorous patience can help us release the snags and keep the momentum going.

After a softer Friday, we turn into an interestingly pivotal weekend rife with nervous energy and quirky timing. Pleasantly quick dialogue or potentially sharp-edged debate hovers over deeper questions about security, work, and life-purpose as we wait for the tide to turn and ready our ships to sail out.

Saturn retrogrades back into Scorpio for the summer and asks us to get to some older unfinished business that affects our security, our work, our bones and teeth and the structure of our lives. It can help us put building blocks in the right place so we can really begin to build, whether we’re building our work or a shed in the back yard.

Early next week we can get started on a new chapter, and then may get distracted by personal issues or need more time for introspection or healing time than we’d like, but we can pick up momentum by the end of the week.

We may still feel Mercury is retrograde until it clears the last of three confusing squares to Neptune (May 9, May 29, and June 23) right around the summer solstice. The energy still swirls and will occasionally bring up our uncertainties, our confusion, self-doubts, drifting dreams, unusual sensitivity to beauty, and whiffs of depression. Our imagination needs time to explore and express, or it can interfere with our life. But this aspect, combined with a strong ongoing trine between bountiful Jupiter and electrical Uranus can bring some truly innovative, out-of-the box solutions. Major decisions or technological innovations made now (but maybe not announced for months) could open portals for a long time to come.

Friday, June 12: Morning is slow and sensual as the Moon enters Taurus and Neptune turns retrograde. Midday is perfect for sitting in a hammock, but can be frustrating to follow through on new projects; we are still spinning our wheels and working through the fog. In the afternoon, persistence can help us return phone calls and tie up loose ends. Tonight we may feel ambiguous about being sociable, but can appreciate getting out of the house and being somewhere new, as long as we’re not too far out of our comfort zone. Though we may feel a little argumentative mid-evening, we can drift more contentedly late tonight.

Neptune retrograde 3:07 AM, Moon enters Taurus 8:16 AM, Moon square Venus 8:11 PM, Moon semi-square Mars 8:36 PM

Saturday, June 13: It’s a sweet day for a graduation or other rituals of completion; we can feel the road behind this and the road ahead and may need to stand exactly where we are. Keep a steady pace through the day, don’t rush anyone. Evening is brings out our sybaritic quality, and evening to eat pesto and melon and other delights under the stars to flirt and debate under the stars as Venus semi-squares Mars and the Moon squares Jupiter. Like a rubber band that snaps back after being stretched thin, we may be resonating emotionally and say strange things. Note the release, and let go of the story.

Moon sextile Neptune 1:03 AM, Moon trine Pluto 9:37 AM, Moon square Jupiter 4:06 PM then VOC, Venus semi-square Mars 9:29 PM,

Sunday, June 14: This could be a pivotal day as the Sun conjuncts Mars. Our road may turn because either we are complete and ready to strike out on a new road, or circumstances are shifting around us and the road curves anyway. The energy is nervy, edgy; talk it out, but sort anxiety from reality and invoke a good sense of humor. Long-term questions about work and purpose are raised. The mood changes after dinner and becomes more erratic, irreverent, and excitable as the Moon conjunct’s Mercury.

Mercury semi-square Uranus 5:19 AM, Sun conjunct Mars 9:56 AM, Moon enters Gemini 11:50 AM, Moon oppose Saturn 11:52 AM, Saturn retrogrades into Scorpio 6:35 PM, Moon conjunct Mercury 8:26 PM

Monday, June 15: And now what: that is the question of the day. Use this softer, funny, short attention span day to do some interpersonal soothing and healing. Our taste may be enthusiastic but questionable so avoid long-term aesthetic decisions. Repair, reconnect, and catch up. Tend to relationships and let people coast. The conversation is important, the decision isn’t ready.

Moon sextile Venus 3:38 AM, Moon square Neptune 4:58 AM, Moon sextile Jupiter 9:04 PM, Moon sextile Uranus 11:42 PM, Sun semi-square Venus at 11:31 PM.

Tuesday, June 16: The new Moon at 8:05 AM starts a new cycle in outreach, communiqués, and public relations. What do we need to announce? Launch ideas this afternoon though don’t be surprised if they don’t coalesce until after the Moon enters Cancer around dinner time, a good time to check our gut intuition. Help people feel safe and comfortable tonight, and watch the spirit open.

Venus in conjunct Neptune 12:20 AM, Moon conjunct Mars 7:05 AM, Moon square Venus 8:02 AM, Moon conjunct the Sun 8:05 AM then VOC, Moon enters Cancer 4:50 PM

Wednesday, June 17: Let’s not let a passing cloud of self-consciousness convince us that we need to throw up our defenses. Be introspective, not touchy: look for the empowering answers within. Use imagination; envision a difference and share the dream as the Moon trines Neptune- or live the dream, and coast. Slow down and honor a wave of empathic emotion tonight as the Moon opposes Pluto.

Moon trine Neptune 10:40 AM, Moon opposed Pluto 7:42 PM

Thursday, June 18: Morning may be cranky or unsettled as the Moon squares Uranus. We can just feel edgy or out of sorts, or need to fix little things that nibble away at our contentment. Digestion can be touchy today and people may not be able to digest what we want to tell them. So speak with kindness rather than reaction. People may be a bit serious, but in a more proactive solution-oriented mood tonight.

Starcodes June 5 2015  Heather Roan Robbins

On these lovely late spring evening we can look up at the evening sky and see the ark of our solar system. Notice Venus glowing close to the Western horizon, Jupiter a little farther north the waxing Moon with Saturn nearby glowing brightly towards the east directly opposite the Sun. Let’s take the moment to commune with our little corner of the galaxy.

For these last few weeks, all can be lovely when we hold still and have time to share our thoughts, to putter, or further our craft. Float on a hammock or by a beach. Find something to celebrate with close family. Take the time to explore an idea and chew on it, poke at it, think about the variables, run it by others and let it take shape.

But anything else might not have been so easy. Communication glitches, mood swings that can take us way inside one minute and then restlessly social the next, as both emotions and weather conditions had soggy moments. Serious concerns needed attending just as one felt least efficient as Mars, the Sun, and Mercury all opposed muscle- building Saturn and squared diffusing, confusing Neptune. Which produced the spiritual or soul longing that can itch at the soul and take the savor out of practical chores.

But this pattern begins to change. The human story picks up speed this weekend. Friendly, creative Venus enters Leo this morning, trines Saturn over the weekend (moves towards a conjunction with Jupiter and a trine with Uranus in the weeks ahead) and brings a new urge to leave our cave and socialize. It can spark romance and give us an urgent desire to be to be seen and appreciated. Our creative process and artistic expression wakes up.

Though we still need to be patient for the moment, we may think we’ve let our beloveds know what we need and either may have not got the message across clearly, or clash with their own emotional needs, and no one feels heard. So clarify the message, be patient, listen, and take turns. Ignore people (both beloveds and clients) at peril.

We get more energy and a restless urge to be proactive and get on with our work even with Mercury retrograde as active Mars sextiles Jupiter on Friday and sextiles Uranus on Monday. Watch the news for tangentially difficult military action, or cheerfully hostile statements. A sextile brings a gentle nudge, can give us a little bit more competitive edge little bit more interest in getting off out of the hammock and into the garden. These aspects can help us coordinate our efforts to rebuild after floods the natural disasters or take romance from theoretical to manifest. But we can try to push the river ahead of schedule, before they’re really ripe. So let’s get started, but go slow enough to listen and respect the needs of the project. Timing and pacing will make a world of difference.

This is this will be especially important towards the end of the week as impatience meets obstacles. The Moon enters proactive, jump-the-gun Aries, just as Mercury stations or appears to hold still, semi-square erratic Uranus, just before it turns direct late on Thursday. He we can rush and barrel straight into a wall. Feel the revving engines and watch the road. Rein in arguments, rein in anger. Next week we get a green light, though some cleanup work to do. Get ready to run with the ball in late June; Mercury has one more square to Neptune, then comes out of its shadow and helps us build momentum as the month ends.

Friday, June 5: Overnight our minds can churn over our conundrums or review worst-case scenarios which can leave us feeling restive or ticked off this morning. We may be aware how our personal needs have upstaged our professional needs, or uncover another layer of the work we have to do as the Sun quincunx Pluto. The mood lightens as Venus enters Leo midday and brings a certain excitement and emotional urgency. Which can turn into competence and good preparations as Mars sextiles Jupiter afternoon and the Moon enters social connected Aquarius this evening. It’s a great evening for community gatherings; we may want more or want to hog our moment in the spotlight, but the evening is about group dynamics.

Moon square Uranus 4:53 AM, Venus enters Leo 9:32 AM, Moon set me square Neptune 2:05 PM then VOC, Sun quincunx Pluto 5:31 PM, Mars sextiles Jupiter 5:38 PM, Moon enters Aquarius 11:01 PM,

Saturday, June 6: Look for beauty from the past: antiques, reclaimed vegetation, or a dear old friend circling back from the mists of memory as Venus trines Saturn. Otherwise, it’s all about the community and the joy and responsibilities that we’ve us into community. If we’re feeling lonely, let’s find a group to help out, mix politics, art, and sociability as Venus trines Saturn and the Moon trines Mercury. Afternoon can bring unusual quirks of conversation, apparently random meanings that may have profound effect as Mercury quintiles Jupiter. Early evening the conversation wanders, but grows more serious later on.

Moon opposed Venus 12:01 AM, Venus trine Saturn 12:23 AM, Moon trine Mercury 8:34 AM, Mercury quintile Jupiter 2:27 PM, Moon quintile Saturn tonight,

Sunday, June 7: If we can rest up and free flow today, let’s do so. The energy meanders and doesn’t coalesce easily. It’s a good day to have iced tea in the shade and ponder how to fix the world. Watch the extra advice; we can pontificate easily and insensitively. Keep expectations low and let the wells refill.

Moon trine Sun 2:57 AM, Moon opposed Jupiter 5:05 AM, Moon trine Mars 6:31 AM, Moon sex tiles Uranus 8:30 AM then VOC.

Monday, June 8: The mood is sensitive, dreamy, but not particularly focused for a Monday morning as the Pisces Moon squares Saturn, and even more fuzzy as it conjuncts Neptune tonight. Divination, gardening, design, therapy, anything where we can tune into our sensitive perceptions, sort them from our imagination and use them consciously, will further. If feelings are hurt, check for misunderstandings first.

Moon enters Pisces at 2:16 AM, Moon squares Saturn 3:01 AM, Moon square Mercury at 10:40 AM, Sun sextiles Jupiter 3:55 PM, Moon conjunct Neptune 6:56 PM

Tuesday, June 9: We get the gas in the breaks the same time while Mars sextiles Uranus and revs us up, gives us the desire to make things happen or force changes, just as frustratingly slow Mercury blends with a tender VOC Pisces Moon and leaves us drifting. Work around obstacles rather than try to work through them. Do not fault people (or self) for their temporary lack of ambition. Use ingenuity to solve problems already present rather than go looking for new ones.

Mars sextiles Uranus at 1:29 AM, Moon sextiles Pluto 3:36 AM, Moon square Sun 9:41 AM, Moon square Mars 12:08 PM, then VOC

Wednesday, June 10: We may feel an urgent need to do something, anything (or a boss may feel that for us) as the Moon enters Aries and trines Venus and Saturn while the Sun approaches Mars, all while Mercury appears to hold still. We have to make it a dance; with patience and attention we can harness this restlessness and do preliminary work. We can tackle a pile that’s been staring us in the face and finally deal with it. We just have to be careful not to tackle one another, as it may be tempting. This morning, breathe through interrupted communication and an urgency to say something we may regret. Our tact improves midday as Mercury sextiles Venus. We are encouraged to look for a change of scene this afternoon as the Sun sextiles Uranus.

Mercury square Uranus 12:51 AM, Moon enters Aries 5:13 AM, Moon trine Saturn 5:44 AM, Mercury sex tiles Venus 6:51 AM, Moon sex tiles Mercury 1:03 PM, Moon trine Venus 1:32 PM, Sun sextile Uranus 3:30 PM,

Thursday, June 11: Morning is twitchy; others just don’t do what we want. Generous intent returns midday, but the blustery winds of the soul race and swirl in place rather than gather momentum until Mercury turns direct late this afternoon. Drive carefully and keep a weather eye out for storms or stormy people. Straighten out problems and misunderstandings on the spot, and reach out to reconnect tonight.

Moon trine Jupiter 12:13 PM, Moon set me square Mercury 2:28 PM, Moon conjunct Uranus 2:44 PM, Moon sextile Sun 4:22 PM, Mercury turns direct 4:32 PM, Moon sextiles Mars 5:42 PM
