monday june 13th-
at 8:39am venus in gemini quincunxes retrograde mars in scorpio, creating tension and friction between the Divine Lovers. last month venus opposed retrograde mars (exact 5/24) and now they quincunx each other- making for two intense interactions between the relationship-governing planets. this interaction highlights gemini and scorpio- the surface and the depths, lightness and intensity, intellect and emotion. these two seemingly opposite sides of experience can seem to do battle right now and this may manifest in your life as a literal person who is polar opposite to you. if you are avoiding dealing with the shadow (too much gemini) or you are stuck in the shadow (too much scorpio) right now you are being called to find a better balance between the two. relationship issues that were brewing at the time of the full moon last month can be up again right now. since the shadow without simply mirrors the shadow within- use any and all experiences right now as a mirror to see the self more clearly ;)
at 1:42pm neptune stations retrograde at 12’02 pisces- making the planet of mysticism, spirituality, illusion, delusion and deception the strongest planet in the sky right now. neptune has been in stationary mode for the last week and he will be so for the following week- making this period of time a sensitive and perhaps confusing one. neptune governs the veils but he also governs the mists of confusion. it may be hard to discern what is Truth and what is fiction/fantasy or a lie. seeing others clearly is not so easy right now but more importantly seeing ourselves clearly is not so easy either. now is not the time to make life defining decisions- instead it’s a time to retreat, reflect, introspect, dream, meditate and listen to your inner voice. being able to discern inner voice from fears or desires is the path to mastery right now.
venus in gemini squares chiron in pisces at 2:15pm, creating tension and friction between the Goddess of Love, beauty and worth and the Wounded Healer planetoid. over the next 3 days venus and the sun will square chiron- bringing illumination to old wounds and pain we have around worth, esteem, value, Love and more. venus/chiron can be a heart-healer aspect IF we are willing to go into our wounds and through them rather than act out in them, stay stuck in them or ignore them. journey softly today and be tender with your heart and the hearts of others. it’s a great day to be in therapy, get some body work or do something else that is healing and nurturing to your body, mind and Soul.
the sun in gemini sextiles eris in aries at 8:58pm, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Goddess of discord and Harmony. over the next 24 hours the sun will activate the uranus/eris conjunction that was exact for the first time 6 days ago. uranus/eris is a revolutionary alignment waking up our need to take action, evolve, change, die and rebirth ourselves in some way. sun/eris and sun/uranus tomorrow is a great time to make these changes consciously. being progressive, proactive and evolutionary has it’s rewards right now!
tuesday june 14th-
at 12:53am the sun in gemini sextiles uranus in aries, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener! today is a great day to embrace change and do things differently. it’s time to not only speak your Truth but walk your talk! action follows intention so set your course in the right direction right now!
retrograde pluto in capricorn trines the true north node in virgo and sextiles south node in pisces for the 3rd and final time at 1:30pm (the first two were on 6/9 and 6/11- and pluto will trine the mean node only once on 6/16) , aligning the Lord of Transformation and Empowerment with the evolutionary north node of destiny and growth! pluto helps us to move through death and rebirth processes in our lives- emotionally, spiritually, literally and otherwise. his alignment to the evolutionary north node ensures that what is dying is dying because something massively positive for our path is about to be born! when you follow your bliss doors open and right now they are opening BIG TIME!!! very significant, profound and deep changes, evolutions and transformations are brewing in your life. this has been building all year but it’s exact in june and has the added impact of the jupiter/north node alignment to bolster it. with jupiter aligning with the north node this month and both of them trine to pluto- major opportunities, connections, collaborations and evolutionary leaps are happening. all you have to do is surrender to them. with pluto in capricorn and the north node in virgo- staying aligned with your personal path of self-mastery, discipline, responsibility, integrity and inner work will reap rewards beyond your wildest imaginings. stay with the path of transformation right now- there is gold waiting to be found! (please note: the mean node only aligns with pluto once but the true node aligns with pluto 3 times this month- making the entire month of june TRANSFORMATIONAL. pluto trines the true north node on 6/9, 6/11 and 6/14 and pluto trines the mean north node on 6/16).
at 2:27pm mercury in gemini quincunxes mean black moon lilith in scorpio, creating tension and friction between the mind and intellect and the fierce Dark Feminine. gemini likes to look at what is on the surface while scorpio likes to see into the depths and shadows. this can be a great time to dig deep and get to the Truth of matters OR it could be a time of power/control dynamics and shady shitty stuff going on behind the scenes that no one wants to look at. accessing our powers of intuition and insight is key right now but NOT using this powers to dominate others is also key. being willing to go deep- within ourselves, in situations with others and in regards to situations in the world around us is key right now.
the sun in gemini quincunxes retrograde mars in scorpio at 10:31pm, creating tension and friction between the conscious self and ego and the will, warrior and drive. these two bodies are the yang, masculine planets and when in conflict we can find our yang, aggressive and ego energies on overdrive. between today and tomorrow the sun triggers the mars/chiron trine- forcing us to look at our own shadow dynamics, repressed emotions, unconscious fears and desires and more. again we have the polarizing of gemini versus scorpio- surface versus depth, lightness versus intensity, Light versus shadow. too much polarizing in either direction will create imbalances that can be felt in our personal interactions today. if you find yourself feeling extra fiery, feisty, irritable or angry today be sure to have healthy outlets for your emotions and be sure to dive into them to move through them rather than avoid them entirely.
wednesday june 15th-
the sun in gemini squares chiron in pisces at 2:36pm, creating tension and friction between the conscious self and ego and the Wounded Healer planetoid. over the last 3 days as venus squared chiron and now the sun squares chiron, we have been in deep territory with all manner of old wounds, pain, feelings of rejection, abandonment and unworthiness arising. the sun typically is where we want to be seen and shine and venus is where we want to be loved and valued- and with chiron squaring both these last days we are very aware of where this is NOT the case. the key is to look deep within rather than project without. if we think it is others who do not value us or do not love us we are missing the reflection. we can only feel bad about ourselves when lack of self-Love or self-value is touched upon. it’s a great day to dive deep and confront shadows, feel emotions and move through what keeps us stuck. the only way out is through.
thursday june 16th-
retrograde pluto in capricorn trines the mean north node in virgo and sextiles south node in pisces, aligning the Lord of Transformation and Empowerment with the evolutionary north node of destiny and growth! pluto helps us to move through death and rebirth processes in our lives- emotionally, spiritually, literally and otherwise. his alignment to the evolutionary north node ensures that what is dying is dying because something massively positive for our path is about to be born! when you follow your bliss doors open and right now they are opening BIG TIME!!! very significant, profound and deep changes, evolutions and transformations are brewing in your life. this has been building all year but it’s exact in june and has the added impact of the jupiter/north node alignment to bolster it. with jupiter on the north node this month and both of them trine pluto- major opportunities, connections, collaborations and evolutionary leaps are happening. all you have to do is surrender to them. with pluto in capricorn and the north node in virgo- staying aligned with your personal path of self-mastery, discipline, responsibility, integrity and inner work will reap rewards beyond your wildest imaginings. stay with the path of transformation right now- there is gold waiting to be found! (the mean node only aligns with pluto once but the true node aligns with pluto 3 times this month- making the entire month of june TRANSFORMATIONAL. pluto trined the true north node on 6/9, 6/11 and 6/14).
friday june 17th-
at 2:32am venus at 29 gemini trines retrograde juno at 29 libra, aligning the Goddess of Love and beauty with the asteroid Goddess or partnership and marriage at the karmic completion degree of their respective signs! this is a great day to get clear on our desires and needs, our space/freedom and our commitments. with the 29th degree highlight and juno hovering over this degree for an entire month (from 6/7-7/7) there are big patterns and karmas as well as karmic relationships that are up for us to really see through and get to the bottom of. taking time today to honor endings that precede new beginnings is key.
venus moves out of gemini and into cancer at 12:39pm, shifting the Goddess of Love and beauty from air to water, intellect to emotion, and thinking to feeling. the coming weeks of venus’ journey through cancer is a time to focus on home, family, nurturance and nourishment. the value is on emotional connection, safety, security and unconditional Love. just watch out for the shadow side of venus in cancer- holding onto the past beyond it’s expiration date, engaging in parent/child dynamics in intimate relationships, and having fear of never having enough.
at 8:29pm retrograde saturn in sagittarius squares recently gone retrograde neptune in pisces, forming the 2nd of 3 squares between these two bodies (the first was on 11/26/15 and the last will be on 9/10/16). saturn square neptune brings tension and friction between the planet of 3d reality and the planet of transcendence and dreams. neptune provides inspiration, but saturn’s voice is telling us where we are merely deluding ourselves. the positive use of saturn/neptune is taking the necessary steps to anchor our dreams into reality. yet at the same time there may be reality checks going on that are wake up calls to us to stop wearing rose colored glasses so that we can see what is really going on in our lives (personally and collectively). if you feel low energy or lowered immunity, take time out from the busyness of life to meditate, reflect and perhaps sleep. this, too, shall pass. this transit lasts all year long and culminates with neptune aligning with the south node in november. big karmic patterns of illusion, delusion, deception and confusion- personal and collective- are up big time. be willing to confront the areas of life challenging you right now (for more info check your weekly horoscopes) to make the most of the astrology right now.
saturday june 18th-
at 10:55pm retrograde mars in scorpio quincunxes uranus in aries, creating tension and friction between the will warrior and drive and the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener! mars/uranus is great for change and doing things different but because the aspect is tense it could also incite impulsivity, restlessness, aggression and anger. if we are not dealing with our emotions in healthy ways today can be explosive- so be aware and navigate with care. what mars is doing in the underworld right now is facing us with all our disowned shadow. if you can use the illuminate of uranus to see and own what is coming up for you right now- then this astrology can help you to move through and past it. liberation is yours if you choose! (but the only way out is through).
sunday june 19th-
there are no major aspects today. the moon is in fiery, adventurous, freedom-loving sadge all day long. the moon squares jupiter early morning and trines uranus- bringing even more desire for freedom and space! we are building to the second full moon in sagittarius (exact tomorrow) so the emotional energies are brewing. knowing where to push and grow and where to deal with limits, restrictions and self-discipline is key right now. don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater- but don’t hold onto that dirty bathwater either!
