monday june 8th-
retrograde venus in gemini squares ceres in pisces 7:51am, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. there can be conflict between our creative/romantic needs and our needs for nurturing and caretaking (ourselves and others). venus is very heady in gemini while ceres in pisces FEELS DEEPLY. this is a week to be in touch with emotion as likely many will be flying around (personally and collectively). interestingly both Benefic planets tensely aspect ceres this week- which can exacerbate the desire for pleasure and things to be easy and nice which can create a disconnect from feeling and where things are not happy, peaceful or ideal. finding balance between head and heart is key <3
tuesday june 9th-
there are no major aspects today <3
wednesday june 10th-
uranus at 9’00 taurus semisextiles chiron at 9’00 aries at 12:26am, harmoniously aligning the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener with the Wounded Healer planetoid. these two have been in semisextile aspect since the start of 2009 and will continue to do so until the middle of 2021- so this is a long term transit that really spans a whole generation. uranus brings things to Light and helps us make radical shifts and changes and when he is in contact with the Wounded Healer we have huge potential for seeing our own wounds and doing deep healing work that helps us to dramatically release the past and the hold it has on us. this is the fourth time we have uranus in taurus and chiron in aries (the first was july 2018, the last was february 2020)- so we have a shift in what is being brought to awareness. uranus is helping us change our values and attachments. uranus is freeing us from old ideas of safety and security that are based on an old paradigm. chiron is helping us heal our relationship to the masculine within and without. coming into right relationship with our anger, will, drive, rage, sexual energy and aggression is key right now. this astrology provides us with the impetus and potential to bring to Light that which we could not see or face in the past. cathartic healing is possible right now- be sure to embrace it and work with the energies present right now! (because both of these bodies are slow moving planets this transit lasts 12 years- but the degrees and signs they activate during each exact aspect change. in 2009 uranus was at 20’22 pisces and chiron was at 20’22 aquarius. in 2021 uranus will be at 10’50 taurus and chiron will be at 10’50 aries. so both bodies transit over 50 degrees respectively over this 12 year cycle- helping to awaken and heal parts of our individual and collective experience that is ready for shift).
retrograde venus in gemini sesquiquadrates retrograde pluto in capricorn at 5:43am and semis squares eris in aries at 10:23am, triggers the pluto/eris square that is exact for the second time this sunday june 14th!!! this is arguably the BIGGEST ASTROLOGY of 2020. yes saturn conjunct pluto and jupiter conjunct saturn are huge but eris is the furthest and slowest moving body in our solar system and as michael lutin says ‘the slowest planet wins’. eris is the Goddess of Discord and Chaos and she disrupts an old order. she can show up as a virus that turns life as we know it upside down and she can incite riots and civil unrest. her name is all over everything we are experiencing in 2020. lest you think she is all bad (she is called the Goddess of Discord and Chaos) i want to remind you that apocalypse means lifting of the veil of illusion. eris shows us what is in the shadow and behind the scenes. she shows us what was always operating there but we just did not see it. this rude awakening can be shocking and unexpected but ultimately it is for our freedom and healing! add in pluto and we have we the Lord of the Underworld also involved in excavating shadow, exposing power/control dynamics and forcing us to deal with trauma and karma we have put out of sight. with venus retrograde triggering today this can manifest in relationships, finances, self-worth and self-Love. if we are only on the surface and stay in the head- we need to drop down deeper into the body and our emotions right now or they may overtake us. sudden shocks or revelations in Love and money situations can arise today and this week. stay open to change!
thursday june 11th-
at 2:37am the sun in gemini squares neptune in pisces, 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
retrograde venus in gemini semisextiles uranus in taurus at 2:50am, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener! we just had the uranus/chiron semisextile earlier in the week so today venus is linking with both. stay open to sudden shifts, revelations, changes of heart and mind. pay attention to your dreams upon waking for important messages from the Unconscious. change is in the air!
at 3:49am retrograde 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. venus in gemini wants to communicate and connect- from both mind and heart! 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. this is the 2nd of 3 venus/chiron sextiles (1st was 4/10 just after front end shadow of venus retrograde began and last will be 7/27 a day before back end shadow ends)- and it is a major them of the venus underworld journey. healing is possible when we take off the rose colored glasses and pull our heads out of the sand (thanks to the Neptune squares to venus). healing also happens when communication and understanding occur. be willing to speak with compassion and listen with openness and watch how doors open and bridges are created over the divide.
retrograde jupiter in capricorn semisquares ceres in pisces at 8:37am, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. jupiter in capricorn values stability, security, grounding, mastery and hard work. ceres in pisces values flow, sensitivity, compassion and empathy. these are very different energies and there could be conflict in needs and values happening. at best jupiter in earthy capricorn can be the chalice or contained vessel that holds the piscean waters of the Unconscious. at worst the capricorn energy can cut us off from feelings and deny the lived experience of others. caring for others as they need to be cared for versus how we normally would as our default takes lots of practice right now.
friday june 12th-
there are no major aspects today.
saturday june 13th-
at 7:13am mars cojoins neptune at 20’56 pisces- aligning the warrior, will and drive with the planet of mysticism, spirituality, denial and delusion. on the 6th the sun squared mars, on the 11th the sun squared neptune and now today mars aligns with neptune- making for a potent alignment of the masculine planets and the planet of illusion, delusion and idealism. mars/neptune is great for creativity, spirituality, romance, and having faith in life! yet the shadow side is these two can make us more delusional, easily deceived and/or deceptive in nature. seeing what we want to see cannot be at the expense of seeing and dealing with reality. ultimately we must find the middle point where both can coexist without one dominating at the expense of the other. we also want to watch out for passive aggressive, subtle manipulation, dishonesty, addictions and generally not wanting to be direct, above board or dealing with life. use this astrology to dive deep into the waters of the Unconscious and pay attention to your dreams for messages from this deep space within <3
sunday june 14th-
at 8:05am retrogade pluto in capricorn squares eris in aries, making the second of five squares between the two furthest planets in our solar system (that we know of). eris was discovered in 2005 and is the new archetypal energy guiding the 21st century. her patriarchal myth is that of the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. she was not invited to a wedding party and she showed up pissed off and created chaos. but her Highest expression is the Solar Feminine Warrior Goddess- shown in the figures of joan of arc and wonder woman. she is the feminine who is willing to take a stand for Truth and is willing to expose what is in the shadows. 2020 is the year of the exaltation of the Warrior Goddess- in men and women- waking up and/or elevating the leaders our world so desperately needs. pluto/eris is a stand off between the shadow of the patriarchy and the awakening of the Solar Feminine/Warrior Goddess archetype. we go VERY DEEPLY into eris and the pluto/eris square in the recent weekend webinar i co-hosted about the Astrology of 2020. she is HUGE and understanding her energy is key to navigating the year ahead. for more info on this on-demand workshop click here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/the-extraordinary-astrology-of-2020-big-year-incoming/
pay attention today and this month to the shadow getting exposed personally and collectively, to the warrior women and men taking a stand, and to the old paradigm that is dying and creating space for a new one to be birthed! these are powerful times!!!!
at 1:27pm the sun in gemini semisquares uranus in taurus, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Rebel and planet of upheaval. we had the 2nd pluto/eris square this morning and now the sun makes tense aspects to uranus, pluto and eris the afternoon to evening. prepare for some intense energy today/tonight. communication and information can be shocking, combative and chaotic. shadow is coming to Light. having a good practice to ground into the body and not stay stuck in the head is key. stay open to change- and start by changing yourself first before you expect others and the world around you to change ;)
the sun in gemini quincunxes retrograde pluto in capricorn at 6:57pm and sextiles eris in aries at 7:15pm as well – so we do not just have the 2nd pluto/eris square we have the sun, our Source of Light and Life, triggering it. sun/eris is waking up the warriors and activists, while sun/pluto is pitting the need for change against the powers that be (and traditions/old ways of being) that no longer serve. today is a BIG DAY. be willing to change your mind, change your narrative and take a stand for Truth.
have a blessed, safe week…
