There are a couple powerful aspects this week with Mars. It will oppose Saturn, and then square Uranus; both of which can be tense and explosive. Also, last Thursday’s Full Moon in Capricorn is still unfolding, so stay calm this week and avoid arguments. The Dark of the Moon/4th quarter begins this Thursday, July 1st, and is waning until Friday, July 9th, when we have a New Moon in Cancer. The next two weeks are full of squares and other challenging aspects, so tensions could be high. Take excellent care of yourself; get good rest, good food and good company.
Mercury went Direct last Tuesday, and is barely moving. When a planet is stationary, before it starts picking up speed again, it’s powers are said to be very concentrated. This is a powerful time to speak and be visible! Need to clear the air? This is a great time to do it. Say what you NEED and let people know what you’re feeling, just do it calmly. What message do you want to send out about yourself or interests? What do you want people to notice about you, and what do you want to accomplish? Think about these things as Mercury begins to move forward.
Monday, June 28th: Moon into Pisces at 10:51am Pacific, and Venus entered Leo in the night. Venus loves being in Leo. Women will be creative, strong, and heart centered over the next several weeks. Venus inconjunct Jupiter is exact today. Watch out for overindulging and risk taking. Be gentle with yourself and have some fun. Everything cheers up in the evening with the Moon conjunct Jupiter.
Tuesday, June 29th: Moon in Pisces trines the Sun in Cancer. Fluffy-watery-Neptune day could have us seeking emotional security. Give yourself whatever you need – a nice dinner, phone calls with friends, or maybe solitude. It’s all good, just follow your instincts. This combination brings out emotions, music and creativity. Moon sextile Uranus in the afternoon could bring some surprises.
Wednesday, June 30th: Moon in Pisces goes void-of-course at 10:40am, then into Aries 6:21pm Pacific. That’s such a long void period! Follow plans and focus on the work in front of you. Keep your calm while driving, or dealing with insecure, headstrong people. There’s a feeling of rebirth today, so be in tune with what you’re birthing in your life.
Thursday, July 1st: Moon in Aries and five aspects! The big one is at 6:08am – the major opposition between Saturn in Aquarius and Mars in Leo. We’ve been building up to this all week. Both Mars and Saturn are “malefics”, capable of bringing destructive forces and major power struggles. Mars already wants to be in charge, but in Leo he’s a raging narcissist about it. Meanwhile, Saturn in Aquarius is on the side of humanity and forward progress. These two major planets agree on drive, ambition and hard work, so these are the best things to focus on this week. Moon trine Mars in the evening gives us industrious ways to work through the intensity.
Friday, July 2nd: Moon in Aries. Today is the eye of the hurricane. We’re still feeling the big forces at work from yesterday, but there’s big stuff coming tomorrow. Keep a cool head and engage in calm communications. Mercury sextile the Moon is the only aspect today, and that helps us understand each other.
Saturday, July 3rd: Moon in Taurus. The Sun is inconjunct Saturn, which brings struggles with authority figures. Your ego could be challenged, or you’ll find there’s more hard work to be done.
THEN we have Mars in Leo square to Uranus in Taurus! Talk about irritability!
This brings conflicts about boundaries and who’s in charge; also conflicts between responsibilities and the need for independence. Suppressed drives can rise to the surface demanding release. The houses that Taurus and Leo occupy in your chart are the way to make peace. You can look it up for yourself on astro.com, or go to my appointments page for 15 minute phone reading.
Sunday, July 4th: Moon in Taurus forms five different aspects, three of which are tense squares. eesh… Hopefully the fireworks will stay in the sky and out of our personal lives. Take it easy, and validate where you have independence in your life.
