***all times are PDT***
monday june 10th-
at 2:04am the sun in gemini quincunxes retrograde saturn, bringing a heavy energy and limitations or delays. the sun in gemini wants freedom and space! he wants to be on the move! yet saturn comes in and slows him down, showing him what responsibilities he has to deal with or what things he has to be accountable for. using this energy to get grounded, mature and focused is key. if you feel low energy, depressed and blah- know that this, too, shall pass!
retrograde saturn in capricorn semisquares mean black moon lilith pisces at 7:48am, creating tension between the Lord of Karma and Father of Time and the fierce Dark Feminine. lilith in pisces is psychic, intuitive, deeply feeling oriented and attuned to what lies beneath the surface of consciousness. saturn prefers to control feelings- not feel them- and tends to orient towards what is logical and practical. saturn/lilith can help contain our emotions and intuitive perceptions OR it can block and repress them. issues around control and wildness, responsibility and being in flow can be up today.
the sun in gemini opposes retrograde jupiter in sagittarius at 8:28am, which is a very opposite energy to sun/saturn. where saturn is contractive, jupiter is expansive. where saturn is responsible and disciplined, jupiter is adventurous and exploratory. if we are excessive in one energy and deficient in the other – this can be magnified today. sun/jupiter is great for taking risks and having fun- just watch out for overdoing things and being self righteous!
tuesday june 11th-
at 1:11am the sun in gemini semisquares uranus in taurus, creating friction and tension between the conscious self and ego and the Rebel and Great Awakener. sun/uranus is great for sudden and unexpected shift, changes or information coming to Light- but because of the tense nature of the aspect there can be instability, anxiety, mental tension and more- so be aware and navigate with care.
wednesday june 12th-
venus in gemini semisquares the north node in cancer/sesquiquadrates the south node in capricorn at 12:50am, and then at 3:25am venus sesquiquadrates retrograde saturn in capricorn who is heading to the karmic south node for the 2nd of 3 times on 6/23. venus tense aspect to both nodes can bring up issues in relationships, finances, our values and self worth. saturn on the south node is big time karma being brought up for us to address. where are we holding onto the past and it’s holding us back from our future? where are we overly dogmatic, controlling, rigid or restricted? pay attention to themes arising today- light is being shown on what you need to face, release, transform or bring complete to.
thursday june 13th-
retrograde saturn in capricorn semisquares retrograde ceres in sagittarius at 12:21am, creating tension between the Patriarch and the Matriarch. saturn is the Father figure and in his own sign he is extra grounded, responsible and practical but also extra controlling, rigid and patriarchal. ceres is the Great Mother and she is in jupiter’s sign- preferring freedom to chains and expansion to contraction. there can be things up in home/family situations right now or with parents and children. finding the right balance between the past and the future, responsibility and fun is key.
venus in gemini semisextiles uranus in taurus at 1:41am, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener. venus/uranus is a time to embrace the new! step outside of your comfort zone and try something different. today venus links with both uranus and chiron- which can be healing and positive when it comes to relationships, communication and getting some new perspectives on life.
at 10:10am venus in gemini sextiles chiron in aries, linking the heart with the Wounded Healer. venus/chiron is lovely for heart healing and healing in relationship. we are being supported in sharing our hearts, feelings, wounds and pain honestly and truthfully with others. from this space intimacy can open up and deepen. communication can be healing when we make sure our mind (and what we say/how we listen) is in service to the heart.
sun in gemini quincunxes retrograde pluto in capricorn at 2:45pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Lord of the Underworld. sun/pluto is great for excavations and diving deep- in therapy, research, investigation and more. yet the tense nature of the quincunx can bring up massive conflict between our desire to be on the surface and have everything be light and carefree and our need to dive deep, confront the shadow and excavate old things that have been buried in our subconscious for years, since childhood or perhaps lifetimes. steer clear of power struggles with others and instead focus this energy on empowering yourself to do your inner work!
retrograde ceres in sagittarius sesquiquadrates the north node in cancer and semisquares the south node in capricorn at 11:09pm, bringing the Great Mother into tense aspect with the nodes of destiny and karma. pay attention to what is happening in your home/family life, with parents, children or in regards to your own childhood past. things are arising to be looked at and addressed right now.
mars in cancer trines neptune in pisces at 11:11pm (!!!), aligning the will and drive with the Higher Heart. this is a lovely aspect for creativity, romance, intuition and activating the spiritual warrior archetype in us all! yet mars is in the midst of triggering the jupiter/neptune square- so we may not be seeing clearly (individually, as a country and more) and taking actions from a subjective, idealistic place where all we see is our Light while avoiding our own shadow can have dire consequences. using this astrology to be of service and to come from the Higher Heart is recommended. mars is also triggering the neptune/north node trine today through tomorrow morning. it’s interesting to note the exact aspects are at 11:11pm PDT and 4:44am PDT- which numerologically is significant. pay attention to your dreams, visions and inspirations tonight and through the dream time!
friday june 14th-
at 4:44am (!!!) mars cojoins the north node at 18’51 cancer, aligning the will and drive with the node of destiny and evolution. mars on the north node can be a major activator of our personal and collective paths of destiny and growth. mars is the impetus and drive to grow- and he comes into our lives and lights a match under our butts to get us going! yet today mars also opposes saturn- who is on the south node. saturn on the south node is bondage and karma. it is what holds us back and it will take a lot of effort and discipline to orient towards the future and not just stay stuck in the past. pay attention to what is unfolding today and through the 19th as mars triggers the whole capricorn confluence. it’s powerful astrology and it can be intense. power struggles are possible but so, too, is transformation and evolution. choose how you navigate the terrain wisely.
mars in cancer opposes retrograde saturn in capricorn at 8:50am, creating tension between the two malefic planets. mars is in the sign of the mother and saturn in the sign of the father- bringing big time energies into focus around home, family, parents, children and parent/child dynamics that play out in our relationships. cancer is the inner child, saturn is the inner critic. it’s important to be aware of internal dynamics and how they create and manifest situations in our outer lives. mars/saturn is great for working hard, being disciplined and staying the course. but this astrology can repressed and depress anger and emotions and can erupt in passive-aggressive or controlling and dogmatic ways. this is mars’ activation of the capricorn confluence- some of the biggest astrology of 2019. this is where things are karmic, stagnant, stuck and really really intense. this month from 6/14-19 is one of the biggest triggers of this potent astrology- so navigate with consciousness!
at 8:53am mars in cancer quincunxes retrograde jupiter in sagittarius, creating tension between the will and drive and the planet of expansion and excess. mars/saturn is about limits and mastery- but also repression and restriction. mars/jupiter is the opposite- they both want what they want and they want it NOW and they do not want to be held back or restricted in any way. there are two different energies present right now and we want to find balance so we are not being reactive and impulsive (too much mars/juptier) but also not defaulting to depression, restriction and holding ourselves back. use the courage of jupiter to take action in healthy ways today!
retrograde jupiter in sagittarius semisexitles retrograde saturn in capriorn at 9:28am, aligning the two teacher planets in harmonious ways. jupiter is in his sign of rulership and so is saturn- so the teacher planets of expansion and contraction, luck and hard work, possibility and reality are linked up in very positive ways. this is a great time for growth and learning where we find balance between optimism and realism, moving into the future while at the same time being willing to deal with the past. use the energy wisely!
venus in gemini sesquiquadrates retrograde pluto in capricorn at 11:39pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. venus/pluto is deep, passionate and intense. it can also get out of hand and bring up a lot of jealousy, possessiveness and emotional/financial/sexual manipulation. in communications navigate the interrelational territory with awareness of what is running things from behind the scenes (in yourself as well as others).
saturday june 15th-
the sun in gemini sextiles eris in aries at 7:33am, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. sun/eris can be revealing, illuminating but also destabilizing. eris’ medicine is to reveal the shadow and get to the Truth. if we are ready, willing and able to see the Truth within ourselves right now this amazing astrology can help us find freedom within and without.
retrograde jupiter in sagittarius quincunxes the north node in cancer at 11:56pm, bringing tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the north node of destiny and evolution. between today and tomorrow the jupiter/neptune square triggers the nodes- and from tomorrow until june 23rd the saturn/neptune sextile triggers the nodes. the spiritual planets and the teacher planets are bringing lessons into our lives right now- showing us the past and what we need to take responsibility for/deal with as well as the future and where we are being asked to let go and grow. jupiter in sadge likes to be free and expansive but sometimes this can be a default response to avoiding emotions and avoiding dealing with or honoring the past. the north node in cancer requires that we honor emotions, honor the past, and honor the feminine within and without. turning points in our destiny are present right now. choose the direction you move into wisely.
sunday june 16th-
at 4:43am mercury in cancer trines neptune in pisces, aligning the mind and intellect with the planet of mysticism and compassion. mercury/neptune is great for creativity, imagination, intuition and psychic ability. with both bodies in water signs there’s a strong emotional energy today but it can be used for clearing, healing and opening up to greater Truths within and without. mercury is triggering the jupiter/saturn/neptune/nodal configuration all day today- with the nodes triggering jupiter/saturn/neptuen from 6/15 to 6/23. pay attention to what you hear, think, say or receive via information and com munition today (including through your intuition and dreams!).
at 5:02am mercury quincunxes retrograde jupiter in sagittarius, creating tension between our personal subjective perspective and the Bigger Picture. this is great for learning and knowledge but it can get overboard particularly if we think we know it all or tend to be mentally overstimulated. balance is key.
at 5:18am mercury cojoins the north node at 18’44 cancer, aligning the planet of information and communication with the node of destiny and evolution. pay attention to things you hear, things you say, people you meet and destined events or people in your life right now. big hints about your path forward are present! but remember you have to let go of some aspect of the past in order to move into the new :)
mercury opposes retrograde saturn in capricorn at 7:00am, bringing a heavy energy into communication and thinking. at best this is serious, focused and supports us in getting real. at worst it’s depressing, limiting, karmic and heavy. saturn is on the south node and mercury is on the north node. saturn speaks to what is in the past that keeps us stuck. mercury on the north node is shining a light on the path forward and what we need to do or open to to get there. pay attention. from today through the 19th mercury and mars are in some very intense aspects- so tread wisely.
venus in gemini semisquares eris in aries at 8:16am, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos! venus/eris can wake things up to shake things up. if we are complacent in our relationships or our lives in general- eris comes in to shine a Light on the shadow operating behind the scenes. venus has been in the midst of intense aspects all week- notably triggering the pluto/eris square since friday night. breakdowns can lead to breakthroughs. just be aware of how you operate in relationships and how you communicate- honesty and directness is great, control and domination or victimized submission is not.
at 8:22am retrograde jupiter in sagittarius squares neptune in pisces, for the 2nd of 3 times (the first was 1/13). jupiter and neptune are the two planets of spirituality and they are in the signs they rule (jupiter is actually the ancient ruler of pisces but neptune is the contemporary ruler). jupiter/neptune can support inspiration, idealism, mysticism, spiritual openings and creativity! yet the tense nature of the square aspect can make it so that these two similar minded planets/signs overdo their energies- leading to denial, delusion, avoidance of reality, escapism, addiction and spiritual bypassing. this is not a time to float off the planet but instead to ground down into the earth so that we can take our dreams and make them a reality. being willing to see where we are checking OUT instead of checking IN is key. turn to capricorn/saturn for help with that ;)
neptune in pisces trines the north node in cancer at 7:28pm, aligning the Higher Heart and planet of mysticism and spirituality with the north node of destiny and evolution. this is an amazing aspect that pulls us further on our path of growth and evolution by means of our hearts, compassion, altruism, spirituality and selfless service. saturn- the root chakra- is on the karmic south node while neptune- the Higher Heart and crown chakra are positively linking with the node of destiny and evolution. we have profound support right now for dealing with/completing the past so we can move forward in our evolutionary journeys. with both neptune and the north node in water signs- the path to evolution involves feelings, emotional intimacy, inner child work, mothering/nurturing ourselves and others, intuition, psychic opening, imagination, symbolism, mysticism, spirituality, altruism and Unconditional Love.
have a blessed week…
