( 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
