June 16-22, 2024

Taking stock of all the valuable information accumulated over the past few weeks will help us better assimilate what it all means to us personally. We are entering the season of sweeping emotional acknowledgements and awakenings. The core data that we intellectually absorbed during Gemini season now needs to be processed and understood much more instinctually. Do we know why we feel the need for certain people, things, and experiences in our life? We will also be paying close attention to what our ambitions are and whether they are rooted in our core values and desires or someone else’s. The solstice and Full Moon at the end of the week promise deep reflection and reconnection to our identities and aspirations.

Moon in Libra opposite Chiron in Aries

Venus in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces

 

When we consider the inner work we need to do and how valuable that work is to accomplishing our outer work, we have to face the pain we suffered throughout our lives in so many ways. The trauma we endured is never easy to revisit, and it is often brushed aside for fear of experiencing the pain again. But the more we can learn about what we went through, the more we heal that pain. This helps recondition our perspective and brings greater potential for genuine healing. We have a unique opportunity today to consider the perspective of anyone who may have been involved in our trauma. We can feel compelled to see things through someone else’s eyes for greater awareness and understanding, however troubling that may be.

 

As the day folds into night, we should prepare for potential struggles communicating with loved ones. The messages rising like a spring tide could be about escapism, addiction, passive-aggressive behavior, neglect, abandonment, or any similar theme. We should be very mindful not to get caught in any undercurrents that can sweep us away into confusing and irrational arguments. Instead, we would be better off either retreating to a space where we can be alone or trying our best not to take anything discussed so personally. We should also be very careful not to shame or blame anyone for their perspectives or lifestyle decisions. We are all doing our best to make it through each and every day.

There is a lot of volatility to contend with today. We may sail through things welcoming the shift from fast and fickle to slow and stable, but the rubber meets the road exactly at a crossroads we may be very unsure about. It can feel like we are trying to work out so many things but have no idea how to do so. We might even decide to just throw in the towel on our to-do list. Considering the gravity of today’s aspects, that kind of levity may be the best thing for us. But it would definitely behoove us to at least prioritize the important matters at hand and focus on them more than the more inconsequentials.

 

We are experiencing a slowdown in our minds, our relationships, and how we functionally manage our lives. We are turning to compassion and understanding toward others and ourselves. Our emotions are beginning to take center stage, and they are asking we pay more attention to them so we can finally process everything we have gone through. Lately, we have been so concerned with getting our words out, absorbing the words of others, and trying to make sense of the madness surrounding us. It is as though we are suddenly in need of open spaces and quiet to feel deeply into our human experience with intense caring and compassion.

 

Tensions begin to seep in with the night, reminding us again that we need to abide by our own standards and not get lost in arguments with those who shun and shame us for expressing ourselves honestly and courageously. Deep matters may surface with intensity and manipulation, so if we prepare for this with an awareness that it will pass, we should be able to skirt any fires that otherwise would ensue and engulf our evening.

Mercury and Venus in Cancer quincunx Pluto in Aquarius

Moon in Scorpio trine Saturn in Pisces

 

The residue from yesterday’s onslaught of perfecting aspects may still linger through the morning, but eventually we can take a deep breath and allow whatever inner and outer shifts happened to organically roll us through today. While Mercury and Venus make a unified quincunx (150°) to Pluto, there may be some unsettling emotions behind the power dynamics in our relationships, particularly the ways in which we communicate with one another and the subtle tones that are often involved. This wanes as night falls, so the evening is bound to feel a bit relieving.

 

There is a deep chasm opening today that can reveal, and help us better decipher, what we instinctually need to address in our lives. The rules of the road, the boundaries surrounding ourselves and others, the hard work necessary, and the leadership skills required are all showing up to teach us what we must understand deep within. The game is often misconstrued to mean one thing or another, and we can get lost if we place all our eggs in one basket. Today can show us exactly how, where, and why we should proceed and not proceed.

Moon in Sagittarius opposite Jupiter in Gemini

 

Moon activates all the outer planets today, which is likely going to influence us in more luminous and unconscious ways. The day may start with a surprise, shaking up an otherwise normal Wednesday morning. Perhaps we are feeling a bit adventurous and want to do something we have never done before, or maybe someone else’s whims trickle into our life to show us something we are not expecting. The values we place on the ordinary and expected may be overturned to reveal different values we had not considered before. These can shift our consciousness into new states that help open our eyes and minds to new possibilities in life.

 

The magnificent beauty that is inherent in all that surrounds us can be felt on a deeply instinctual level today. Maybe such beauty astonishes us to the point we let go of certain old patterns and conditioning. These moments should be relished for all they offer, because the unconscious stirrings are quite capable of leaking into our consciousness today to expand our vessel of awareness and enlightenment. After all is said and done, we might just recognize the world with a completely new assemblage of senses.

Sun in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces

*Sun ingresses Cancer at 4:51pm EDT (June Solstice)*

 

Just before today’s solstice, Sun squares Neptune in Pisces to remind us how mutable life can be. Are we open to the unforeseen? How well do we adapt to the fickle winds that blow through our life? Cause and effect is a natural law, but sometimes life seems to exhibit atypyical or otherworldly oddities. We would do well to be prepared for strange or confusing happenings today, particularly marked by experiences we have no control over. Our plans may get thwarted by unexpected follies of others. The weather may change on a dime, forcing us to reconfigure the trail system we started on.

 

Once Sun ingresses Cancer, however, we begin to slow down and notice more of what affects our emotional experiences in life. The piquant flavor of Gemini season is now mellowing across the forest like a babbling brook. We feel compelled to connect with others more sensitively than cerebrally. It is a time to reflect and process our past from where we stand on this day. The knots that seem to be perpetually tightening in our lower abdomen are beginning to loosen and untie themselves, allowing the channels of those psychic waterways to flow more freely and with greater compassion and understanding. May the season enrich us all with a stronger sense of identity and a more nurturing temperament. We are all in this together!

Moon in Sagittarius trine Chiron in Aries

Mercury in Cancer sextile Mars in Taurus

Moon in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces

*Full Moon at 1° Capricorn at 9:08pm EDT*

 

Leading up to tonight’s Full Moon, we can recognize how healing inspiration is in our life. Sometimes it is difficult to find inspiration, usually because we are too stressed and exhausted. But when we do find anything that uplifts our spirits and instills joy back into our lives, we get that much closer to healing the wounds that used to cripple us. Today can reveal to us something we need to rekindle the dwindling flame in our hearts. This could very well relate to the inspiration we require to approach our beautiful life goals and ambitions with sincere passion and purpose.

 

There is also potential for a steady, grounded strategy to be built in order to more efficiently pursue those dreams. Assessing our resources, feeling more deeply what we desire, and understanding the amount of patience necessary to see those dreams come to fruition are all at play. We should again be prepared, though, for unforeseen circumstances to throw us around a bit more than we would prefer. The story is never a dull one, no matter whose eyes are watching it, so we should remember this when wrenches start flying in from left field.

 

This is a beautiful day to lay all our ambitions out on the table so we can see them in full, plain view. Do we understand why we are ambitious about all of them? Are any of those ambitions a result of conditioning we were unconscious of all these years? Are we following any of them to appease someone else? Can we decipher the subtle riddles lying beneath each of them to determine which ones feel best and resonate most harmoniously with us? These are the ideal questions and scenarios we should be considering and engaging in today. Full Moons are a time to reflect deeply upon our identity, allowing the blinding glow of the Sun to assimilate its light upon the Moon for us to see more clearly through the darkness that so often confounds us.

Moon in Capricorn opposite Venus in Cancer

Moon in Capricorn trine Mars in Taurus

Moon in Capricorn square its nodes and opposite Mercury in Cancer

 

Do we understand the needs of those we love? Are we too harsh in criticizing their faults? These issues could arise today to help teach us how to better nurture each other. We are discovering incredibly valuable tools to better navigate the clogged freeways of our hearts. On one hand we are feeling very pragmatic today, perhaps noticing how important it is for us to get back to the grindstone of hard work and less play, while on the other hand we are seeking to connect with others for the sake of making those relationships healthier and more conducive to growth and mutual achievement.

 

This is also another one of those days where we put a lot of energy into honoring and respecting our values and resources. Is our financial situation in order? Can we make changes to anything that will improve that situation? Do we need to pull back the reins on spending too much money on certain luxuries we do not need? Maybe it is time to go through and organize the paperwork, accounts, and even the beneficiaries of our estate. This is a valuable day to address our valuables and better understand why they are valuable to us. There is patience and endurance available, so let’s not waste this opportunity!

 

This is a week that takes us up up and away into hopeful and inspiring heights we may not be prepared for. That is not to say we will not find gratitude for reaching those heights, but the unforeseen can play a role in shaping what we find when we get there. We should remain open to such whims and flow downriver patiently trusting where life takes us. The pace is slowing, we are finding our footing again, and the ambitions we have are being exposed, sorted, and prioritized for maximum efficiency to get where we hope and dream to be sooner than later. Blessings to everyone on this sacred solstice and Full Moon.
