***all times are PDT***
monday june 17th-
the full moon at 25’54 sagittarius is exact at 1:31am PDT, marking the midway point of the lunar cycle we are in the began with the new moon in gemini on 6/3. both lunations are square neptune- which has brought a nebulous, confusing, idealistic vibe into the mix all month long. this full moon is conjunct the Galatic Center- and similar to the new moon chart has a LOT of jupiter aspects to everything but pluto and a lot of neptune aspects to everything but venus. both jupiter and neptune like to see the positive side of things and prefer bliss, Love and Light. yet they can both also completely avoid the shadow and dealing with the past. if we are wanting to move on so as to avoid facing the past- this can blow up in our faces right now. dealing with the past is the only way to consciously move into the future. stay open to cosmic downloads and Big Truths coming to Light. for more info on this lunation check the lunar insight posted a few days before the full moon is exact.
retrograde jupiter in sagittarius sesquiquadrates vesta in taurus at 8:33pm, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the Priestess asteroid Goddess of focus and devotion. vesta in taurus is devoted to embodiment, stopping to smell the roses and being fully here now. jupiter in sagittarius is on the move, looking for the next adventure and often feeling the grass is greener on the other side. it’s important to tune into where we may be going up and out instead of down and in today. enlightenment without embodiment is not the goal ;)
tuesday june 18th-
at 4:47am retrograde saturn in capricorn sextiles neptune in pisces for the 2nd of 3 times (the first was on 1/31) activating one of the biggest transits we are journeying with in 2019. on the 16th jupiter squared neptune for the 2nd of 3 times and today saturn sextiles neptune for the 2nd of 3 times- bringing the two teacher planets into connection with the planet of spirituality, idealism and fantasy. jupiter/neptune can exacerbate tendencies towards illusion, fantasy, escapism and dreams that are not followed by hard work to manifest them. luckily saturn is involved as well as he is the planet of reality, hard work and manifestation. saturn/neptune can help us to realize our dreams, but he will also help us see through our illusions. taking off the rose colored glasses so we are seeing reality clearly is key. keeping an open heart with healthy boundaries is the perfect symbolism of saturn/neptune. remember this year we have A LOT of capricorn- which is about reality and at times can be depressing and no fun. we want our dreams and inspiration to uplift us but we want to be aware of where we are stuck in fantasy or using dreams to escape dealing with reality. we want to have one foot in both worlds- mundane and sacred. wherever you need to stabilize one foot or the other is the work to do now.
neptune in pisces semisquares vesta in taurus at 8:17am, bringing tension between the Higher Heart and planet of mysticism with the Priestess asteroid Goddess of devotion and focus. yesterday jupiter tensely linked with her and today neptune does. our desire to check out can create a tendency to go up into our heads and into the Spirit realm- yet vesta in taurus is all about devotion to embodiment, sensuality and being IN the physical world. being aware of where we may be floating up and out instead of going down and in is key right now.
mercury cojoins mars at 21’31 cancer at 9:04am, aligning the mind and the will in powerful ways. from today through tomorrow we have a VERY POWERFUL ALIGNMENT of mercury, mars and pluto- which can make for some very intense communication and interaction with others so navigate wisely and consciously. mercury/mars is fiery and dynamic- but can also be emotional and in cancer possible passive aggressive. watch out for power struggles and battles of will! speak up and express yourself but also be willing to hear the truths of others.
wednesday june 19th-
at 3:56am mercury in cancer opposes retrograde pluto in capricorn, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Lord of the Underworld. mercury/pluto is great for therapy, shadow work, research and investigation. yet the tense nature of this opposition can make for unexpected revelations, emotional intensity and power/control dynamics in communication. using this astrology to dive deep and confront emotions and things from the past is key.
mars in cancer opposes retrograde pluto in capricorn at 8:26pm , creating major tension between the lower will and Higher Will. this is a potent aspect- there’s no getting around it! the Highest expression of mars/pluto is having the lower will be in service to the Higher Will. yet the opposition creates conflict experiences with Others- others in our personal lives and others collectively in the form of other races, religions, countries and more. this is NOT a time to take action from a lower ego place or from a place of subjectivity, emotionality and unresolved wounding form childhood. doing this can create karmic consequences. power/over and power/under dynamics can unfold right now. don’t be a manipulator and dominator and don’t let others do that to you either. channel the High side of this energy and focus this force within in the from of self-confrontation and transformation!
thursday june 20th-
mercury parallels mars at 12:28am, carrying over the energy of the mercury/mars conjunction from tuesday morning. fiesty and fiery communication is possible! using this energy to express the Truth and take a stand is key but just watch out for aggression, conflict, and power/over power/under dynamics in communication.
at 4:37pm mercury in cancer squares eris in aries, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. communication can be shocking, revealing and suddenly unexpected today. between yesterday and today mercury triggered pluto and eris- two bodies that reveal shadow and get to the Truth. having healthy outlets for anger and rage is key. steer clear of being passive aggressive or overtly aggressive and instead be honest and speak from the heart.
juno moves out of cancer and into leo at 7:37pm, shifting the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage from lunar cancer to solar leo, from yin to yang, from Soul to Spirit. juno in leo values romance, fun, creativity and loyalty. the key with juno in leo is to make sure we are not just focusing on ourselves and what we want in partnership but also are aware of/care about the needs/desires of others.
friday june 21st-
at 7:36am neptune stations retrograde at 18’43 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 between this reality and other realities but he also governs the mists of confusion and illusion. 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 the inner voice from fears or ego desires is the path to mastery right now. watch out for escapism, turning to addictions to numb out, spiritual bypassing, playing the victim or the martyr. being able to clearly see reality in the midst of mass confusion takes a lot of strength of will and Spirit right now. use neptune’s station in pisces to connect to your Higher Heart and transcendent Spirit while still staying embodied and anchored in reality.
the sun moves out of gemini and into cancer at 8:54am PDT- shifting us from air to water, yang to yin, the last bit of spring to the start of summer (in the northern hemisphere). this marks the summer solstice and the next 3 days as the sun stands still are exceptionally potent for accessing and anchoring the sun’s greatest Light (from 6/21-24). the coming month is a time to focus on home, family, emotions, inner experience and our connection to the Divine Mother. be sure to check out my solar gate call for summer solstice which will be posted a couple days before the solstice. if you are not a galactic benefactor you can sign up to receive this call along with the lunar gate calls here- https://divineharmony.com/become-a-member/
saturday june 22nd-
at 3:57pm mars in cancer squares eris in aries, creating tension and friction between the lower will and drive and the Goddess of discord and chaos. this is a powerhouse of an aspect and from the 19th until today mars has been triggering the pluto/eris square (exact in 2020). with the Lord of the Underworld (pluto) and the Goddess who reveals the shadow that is hidden (eris) in focus- expect the boat to be rocked in your life! if you can work with these energies and be willing to peel back the curtain and look at what is hidden behind the facade- both in yourself, in your personal life and the world around you- then these energies can work for you rather than against you. having healthy outlets for anger and rage is key in coming week. watch out for aggression in yourself and others and do your best to respond rather than react. mars in cancer likes comfort, safety and security- but if we hold onto that in a way that prevents change and Truth being revealed then the astrology incoming could knock our socks off!
sunday june 23rd-
at 4:06am uranus in taurus sextiles mean black moon lilith in pisces- aligning the Higher Mind, Rebel and Revolutionary with the fierce Dark Feminine. uranus is bringing about an embodiment revolution and lilith is a Goddess energy very connected to her body, power and sexuality. linking body (taurus) with spirit (pisces) is supported right now. this is a time to embrace the new and embrace our wildness. pay attention to your dreams and intuition as both can be off the charts right now.
at 6:14am uranus cojoins vesta at 5’38 taurus, aligning the Rebel and Revolutionary with the Priestess asteroid Goddess. this can be profound for awakening and opening up to more embodiment, sensuality, sacred sexuality and value alignment. vesta in taurus is devoted to being a spiritual being in a physical body. she is not trying to go up and out and ascend as much as she is wanting to fully come down and in and descend the fullness of Spirit in her embodiment in the physical world. this can be great for kundalini activation as well.
venus in gemini opposes retrograde jupiter in sagittarius at 9:45am , creating an opposition between the two Benefic planets. both venus and jupiter love to have fun and enjoy life! this can be a fun loving aspect but it can also go overboard particularly if we are using fun and expansion as a means to escape. we have saturn on the south node today and venus in tense aspect to saturn, neptune and pluto until the 27th- so its important to discern where we may be trying to stay on the surface to avoid the shadow and dealing with what is going on behind the scenes.
at 12:35pm saturn cojoins the mean south node at 18’21 capricorn for the 2nd of 3 times (the first was 5/20). this aligns the Lord of Karma and Father of Time with the karmic south node. from may until september we get three of these south node conjunctions- which makes for a VERY karmic time incoming. the south node is the node of the past- it’s about what we did before that has brought us to now. yes there are gifts there but there is also shadow and it points to the places we can get stuck. ‘the past is present’ and before we can move into a better future we have to face the past, account for it, deal with it and do so with mastery. our relationship to authority, power and control needs to be confronted- as does our dogma, rigidity, fears and resistance to change. what is up this year IS THE WORK. saturn demands we ‘be here now’ and deal with what IS. yes dreams can be manifested but not if we are using those dreams to escape reality and escape accountability or responsibility for where things are at in our lives. this is a very saturnine week- we saturn stationing, on the true south node and both mercury and mars tensely aspect saturn. where capricorn is in your chart is where the shit is getting real. deal with reality- and on the other side you will find liberation!
chiron in aries semisextiles vesta in taurus at 6:30pm, aligning the Wounded Healer with the priestess asteroid Goddess. vesta has had a lot of aspects this week! from jupiter and neptune, to uranus and chiron. this is a week to tune into what you are devoted to, what you value and what is deeply important to you. chiron with vesta can bring healing around embodiment, sensuality, sexuality and our devotion to something.
at 7:32pm venus in gemini quincunxes retrograde saturn in capricorn and at 7:37pm venus quincunxes the karmic south node, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty, the Lord of Karma and Father of Time and the node of karma and the past. venus/saturn/south node is a get real aspect. we need to be seeing relationships, Love situations, finances and our own self worth through the lens of reality. if we are being overly light, superficial and just staying on the surface- saturn will have things to tell us and show us. this is great astrology for getting serious and committed to that which is enduring and grounded and good for our growth. but saturn is also the Great Pruning Shears so he may also show us very clearly what has to be cut out of our life!
have a beautiful week!
