monday june 13th-
at 11:26am EDT (please see my note above about time zone change for my astrology posts) mercury moves out of taurus and into gemini, shifting the mind and intellect from earth to air, body to mind, yin to yang. this is the 3rd and final time mercury has passed from the last degree of taurus to the first degree of gemini due to his recent retrograde journey. mercury rules gemini and is very well placed here. he is extra curious, communicative and fun loving! just watch out for the shadow of mercury in gemini- only living on the surface and avoiding the depths as well as not being completely honest and above board in your communications. today mercury transits the alpha star in the pleiades- alcyone- but the transit of the entire pleiades cluster spans about a week. pay attention to cosmic downloads, dreams and intuitions coming in from the 7 sisters!
tuesday june 14th-
the full moon at 23’25 sagittarius is exact at 4:52am PDT/7:52am EDT, marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the completely UNASPECTED new moon in gemini on may 30th! that new moon was pure in it’s focus but also disconnected from everything else going on in the sky (as the new moon literally made NO aspects). with a gemini new moon and sagittarius full moon we have the axis of information and truth activated all month long. what is Truth? are we really seeing the Truth or are we all just seeing through our own lens of perception, belief, wounds and projection? how can we learn to see the Truth more clearly? is it even possible to see the Truth without if we cannot see it within? these are great questions to contemplate right now. with the full moon in a T square with neptune the Truth is easily manipulated, confused, nebulous or otherwise hard to comprehend. we all need to take the rose colored glasses off so we can see the Truth as it is- not as we want it to be or project it to be. with this full moon trine eris we have the capacity to take a stand for Truth in fierce and powerful ways. but in order to do so we have to make sure our own passionate stances are not coming from a place of trying to avoid facing our own wounds and pain. for more on this lunation check the lunar insight posted a few days before the full moon is exact.
at 3:36pm mercury newly in gemini semisquares chiron in aries, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer planetoid. mercury/chiron can bring intensity into communication and thinking. if we tend to hold back our Truth and stay quiet this can push us to speak up. on the other hand if we communicate from a place of aggression and control this can exacerbate things. willingness to both speak up and also hear the Truths of others is key right now!
at 10:48pm venus conjoins pallas athena at 20’36 taurus, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Wisdom and Warrior asteroid Goddess. they are both in the midst of activating the fast approaching uranus/north node conjunction! venus and pallas with uranus was last week- and they both align with the north node this week (tomorrow). pay attention to new things coming in through women and the feminine way of meeting life. this can relate to shifts and changes in money, the environment, material reality- with a need to be aware of the sacred balance of life not just the bottom line. pay attention to what is coming in this week as it’s giving HUGE insight into what is coming end of july. if you have not seen my uranus/north node blog you can read that here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/uranus-conjunct-the-north-node-sudden-and-irrevocable-change-7-26-8-1/
wednesday june 15th-
at 1:25am jupiter in aries semisquares the mean north node in taurus and sesquiquadrates the mean south node in scorpio, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the nodes of destiny and karma. we have an interesting alignment today between venus/pallas athena/north node and jupiter- he tensely aspects all of them as well as the karmic south node. there can be big things coming in right now around the changes we need to make and the places are stuck in an old paradigm- personally and collectively.
at 2:11am (11:11pm the night before for PDT) venus cojoins the mean north node at 20’46 taurus, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the node of destiny and evolution. venus aligned with uranus on 6/10 and today she aligns with the north node- activating the fast approaching uranus/north node conjunction that is exact at the end of july. venus on the north node brings positive activation of our paths of growth and evolution as well as healing and embodiment. pay attention to who or what crosses your path today- as it can be pointing you in the direction of where you need to go to grow! if you have not seen my blog about the uranus/north node conjunction you can find that here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/uranus-conjunct-the-north-node-sudden-and-irrevocable-change-7-26-8-1/
venus in taurus semsiquares jupiter in aries at 2:19am, creating tension between the two Benefic planets of positivity but also excess. venus in taurus loves nice things, sensuality and familiarity. jupiter in aries, on the other hand, is a pioneer and trail blazer and does not like to be bored! too much of a good thing can be too much so watch out on overspending, overeating, overindulging. we need to find balance between our needs for comfort and security and our need for freedom and change. wherever we overdo one at the expense of the other we can find that coming up today to redress the balance!
at 6:55am pallas athena cojoins the mean north node at 20’46 taurus, bringing in fated or destined insights and/or big picture awarenesses about the environment, Mother Earth, the financial world, our values and more. pallas athena is the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess and when in earthy, feminine taurus she is focused on what is best for our health, safety and environment. big aha moments incoming can show us where we are off the path and what we need to do to re-route ourselves. pay attention!
jupiter in aries semisquares pallas athena in taurus at 9:51am, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. jupiter/pallas can positively help us see the Bigger Picture and connect the dots or fill in the puzzle pieces that are missing- but the tense nature of the aspect can have us being hubristic and over the top in our assessment of things ;) if we use the astrology wisely today (jupiter with venus/pallas/north node) we can get clear direction about the path forward and then use jupiter in aries to take conscious action based on what we realize. just watch out for impulsive or reactive actions that cause more harm than good!
at 10:17am mars cojoins chiron at 15’56 aries, aligning the will and warrior with the Wounded Healer planetoid. at best mars/chiron can be used to channel our energy into our healing and awakening. at worst mars/chiron can act out of wounding patterns and Unconsciousness and replicate the patterns and old paradigms over and over again. take action and channel your will, drive and sexual energy with consciousness right now! now that mars is in his sign of rulership we have him making some pretty powerful and possibly intense aspects- to chiron, eris and pluto. having a healthy relationship to anger, will and ego is important. we don’t want to suppress it but we also don’t want to reactively act out in it! balance is key <3
the sun in gemini sextiles eris in aries at 9:24am, 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.
thursday june 16th-
at 3:13am the sun in gemini trines retrograde saturn in aquarius, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Lord of Mastery and Discipline. sun/saturn is great for bringing more discipline and grounding into our lives. this is great for being masterful, organized, mature and practical. with both bodies in air signs that usually are not that interested in containment we are supported in finding grounding in our thoughts, communications and information sharing/information receiving. saturn helps us GET REAL and then gemini digests the information so it makes sense.
the sun in gemini squares neptune in pisces at 9:41am, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet of mysticism and compassion but also illusion, confusion and deception. sun/neptune can be confusing and make it easy to see things the way we want to see them. in communication be honest, direct and have integrity. do your due diligence to make sure others are as well. we can have massive self delusion right now or just general escapism- not having good healthy boundaries on the one hand OR not wanting to see where we have major ego running the show on the other hand (codependence vs narcissism). honest self checks in are key right now! with the sun in gemini being willing to see where we are in our heads as a means to avoid facing our feelings is important. stuff emotions- particularly grief- have a way of controlling things until we turn towards them and work with them directly <3
friday june 17th-
at 5:08am uranus in taurus sextiles juno in pisces, linking the planet of change and revolution with the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. this can be great for bringing new energy into relationships of all kinds- marriage, romance, business or financial partnerships. uranus is showing us clearly where things are stuck and stagnant and what we need to let go of to grow! pay attention! relationships that are based on spiritual growth and being of service can get a huge boost right now!
saturday june 18th-
at 5:32pm venus in taurus squares retrograde saturn in aquarius, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. venus/saturn can be a wet blanket making us see and deal with reality. we may find ourselves feeling lonely, withdrawn or depressed but we can also use this astrology to get real, serious, grounded and responsible. with venus in taurus this can be around money, health, the body or values. pay attention to where you are being asked to get really today.
sunday june 19th-
at 12:06am venus in taurus sextiles neptune in pisces, linking the lower heart and Higher Heart in positive ways. this is lovely astrology for romance, creativity, artistic expression, altruism and Unconditional Love. we are supported in elevating our desires to mystical, spiritual and altruistic levels. venus in her rulership and neptune in his rulership make this aspect extra potent. linking body with Spirit is supported right now. live your spirituality- don’t just proclaim it.
the sun in gemini quincunxes retrograde pluto in capricorn at 4:10am, 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!
have a blessed last week of spring (or fall if you are in the southern hemisphere)…
