June 9-15, 2024

This is another week in which we are working on our personal development and walking the line between pride and humility. We are also beginning to feel a calming and more grounding sense of passion and urgency. The rafters that may have been on fire for the past month or so are smoldering and being rebuilt by the trusty celestial carpenters on high. This helps secure our resources and puts a stronger emphasis on building up those coffers for our future needs. As we get tested by the Leo Moon to see how humble we are remaining in the face of scrutiny or praise, we are learning how valuable that thin line is and how to walk that line with grace, dignity, and truth. The week ends with a blessed reminder of how important other people are to us. We must never forget that we cannot go it alone in this life, no matter how proud we are.

*Mars ingresses Taurus*

Moon in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus

Sun in Gemini square Saturn in Pisces

Moon in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces

Moon in Leo square Mars in Taurus

Moon in Leo opposite Pluto in Aquarius

 

Though we are fielding a wide array of perfecting aspects today, Mars’ ingress into Taurus is of special note. The tone of our approach to handling frustrating situations is calming down, our overall thrust and zest to go after what we desire is waning into a more stabilized and pragmatic approach, and the folly that has lately been prone to topple whatever house of cards we built has taught us a bit more about pulling back the reins on the horses that lead us onward. Grounding into a much more focused approach to our resources can not only help stabilize them, but it can help diversify and grow them if we are patient and diligent.

 

The lasting, reliable realities that are always present are coming into broader focus today. The careless and frivolous passions that distract us from those realities are also becoming more noticeable and recognized for what they are. As always, life is a balancing act of managing our time and resources, working hard to the best of our abilities, abiding by the laws of kindness and compassion, and allowing ourselves the freedom to experience the fun, playful, and carefree opportunities of life. Delicate? Yes. We are becoming more mindful of how to stabilize and sustain a life we love and cherish. A life that continues to blossom with beauty, sensuality, and abundance.

 

We may be scaling back the exuberance of our passions and desires, but that does not mean we are not prone to angst or frustration. Indeed these should be watched for as the day lingers on. Our egos can fall into traps of arrogance and stubborn resistance, so keeping an ear and an eye out for such foibles will help us through these potentials this evening. We should remember that listening teaches us much more than speaking.

Moon in Leo sextile Mercury in Gemini

 

There is a playful exuberance in the air today that promises some degree of fun and light-hearted joy. Our communication lines are open and flowing in a very friendly and congenial way, and those we are close to and consider our favorite friends are sure to help stimulate some laughter and good cheer. As is always possible, however, we must consider the potential for unexpected downturns or hard exits off the freeway of smooth sailing. Are we being too proud, too boastful, or too special? Are we annoyed at someone else being any of these things? There is always something to learn everywhere we look, and sometimes the one direction we forget to look is back at ourselves. Living and learning always plays out with every breath we take, so swallowing our pride might just be in the queue today.

Venus in Gemini sextile Chiron in Aries

Mars in Taurus square Pluto in Aquarius

Moon in Leo trine Chiron in Aries

Moon in Leo square Uranus in Taurus

 

The likely uplifting vibe of yesterday is giving way to some challenges today. Sometimes we are unaware of how set in our certain ways we have become, thus making it difficult to notice where and why change is needed. Being called out for those stubborn tendencies is not unlikely today. The good part, despite the resistance we are sure to exhibit, is that we are being made more and more aware of exactly what we are holding onto so adamantly. And while we still may not admit it or accept it as true, today marks a kind of turning point for some of those traits.

 

Moon in Leo can imbue a bold sense of expression and exuberance. We are reminded of our creativity and our unique flair. Simply put, we are excited to live! This can take a turn toward disappointment, however, if are faced with recognizing anything about ourselves that feels like a blow to our ego. Humility is often hiding in the bushes during Leo Moons, so when we stumble over ourselves, we can rest assured it is a healthy reminder to be modest and humble. This is not to say we don’t deserve to be appreciated and recognized for our talents, genius, or creations, but we can walk the fine line between pride and humility. This is a good lesson for today.

Moon in Virgo trine Mars in Taurus

Mercury in Gemini square Saturn in Pisces

Moon in Virgo square Jupiter in Gemini

 

Today we contend with another healthy, albeit less drastic, dose of pragmatic realities. The humbling recognitions we stumbled into yesterday can be applied to the management of our lives in a way that helps build trust, stability, and a much more sustainable future for our endeavors. When our arrogance creeps in, we lose sight of the value of community and peer engagement. These truths are weaving through today’s tapestry to help knock down the pedestals and wipe the slates that lie before us clean and untainted.

 

There is also a tendency today for finding our feet in our mouths. Rules and boundaries could indeed be crossed in either direction. We might say more than we were supposed to about a sensitive topic. We may get caught doing something clever or cunning. Our exciting mental explorations could be covered in a wet blanket of responsibilities, errands, or heinous tasks. The wisdom of blockages in our lives often is not revealed until a later time, so we should understand the value of taking these types of experiences in stride. Not all days are inflated with sensual and luscious delights! There is work to be done, and the universe does not falter in reminding us of this truth.

Sun in Gemini sextile Chiron in Aries

Moon in Virgo opposite Saturn in Pisces

Mercury in Gemini sextile Chiron in Aries

Moon in Virgo square Mercury in Gemini

 

The rabble rousing Sun-Mercury in Gemini duo is quite activated today by Chiron and the Moon, testing our capacity to make headway on our intimate healing process. The pain we feel from any myriad traumatic experiences usually surfaces on a regular basis and weighs us down with self-doubt, misery, and a bleak outlook on how to emerge joyful and triumphant again. These challenges are exactly the kind of hard work that is so instrumental in determining our capacity to heal. It would be wise to listen carefully to every conversation we find ourselves in today for any clues that can help us on our journey.

 

As we are once again in the throes of refining our personal development and taming our egotistical bent, hopefully we are eschewing the thought processes that are either self-defeating or inflate our sense of importance. There is a middle way between feeling like the world and other people are out to get us and feeling like we have all the answers and do not need help or to change anything about ourselves. It’s a long and narrow way!

 

The Virgo Moon’s opposition to Saturn also tests our resolve to accept the things that we do not have any control over. More precisely, it can help us better recognize what is in our control and what is not. The boundaries and rules of engagement set forth by the universe are not too difficult to live by, but some of those rules put in place by society challenge us to think critically and ask questions. What can we learn from the mistakes made by society over the years? And how have we navigated those rules and mistakes with critical thinking?

Moon in Virgo square Venus in Gemini

*Mercury conjunct Sun in Gemini*

Moon in Virgo opposite Neptune in Pisces

Moon in Libra trine Pluto in Aquarius

Moon in Libra trine Jupiter in Gemini

 

The whims of our insatiable, fickle hearts come to a head with the practicality and refinement necessary to do the good work required of us. It may seem as though we are desperately trying to have enough fun but still get our work accomplished. It can practically seem like a battle today. What do we have yet to do to satisfy our sense of achievement? And what can we put down for a little while so we can go out and enjoy life a little more? These do not have to be at odds, but for many of us they are.

 

With Mercury entering the heart of the Sun today, we are dynamically recharging our brain cells with the Sun’s healing radiance. This is a natural blessing through which we emerge with a renewed and uplifting perspective of life. Through this process, however, there is an enormous surge of mental energy that can deplete our lifeforce and leave us feeling drained and exhausted. As Mercury gradually separates from the reunion, we might feel an actual sense of relief from the overwhelm. Taking this into consideration, we would be wise to not plan any overly stimulating mental exercises today. We will have enough to contend with.

 

The ongoing dilemma of chaos vs. control plays out again today, additionally overwhelming our need for good mental health and stability. Taking the day in stride and leaving plenty of space between our tasks to rest and rejuvenate will help ensure we get through this day less scathed than not. And while the evening settles in, we should expect some healthy conversations with people. These can help remind us that we are not alone in the daily struggle to stay on point and stay cheerful, despite the potential odds.

Moon conjunct its South Node in Libra

 

Consider this Saturday a day of mental rest. We should find something to occupy our time that is not overstimulating, overwhelming, or logistically complex. Working in the garden, mowing the yard, going for a hike or a swim, reading a book, or going out to see some live music are all healthy and fun ways to spend a Saturday recovering from the mind-bending influence of yesterday’s intensity. We must understand, however, that that intensity burned off layers of mental sludge that has built up over the past couple of months. Because of this, there is an acute level of renewal and healing going on.

 

Part of that healing can take place with those we love dearly. We all have gone through this process of alchemical purification, so we are all better prepared to realign our senses, thoughts, feelings, and even our physical bodies to be more attuned to one another, whether intimately or otherwise. Let’s revel in the sanctity of relating. We all have similarities and differences, and neither of these have to spell trouble. They simply spell individuality and individuation, and we should know by now how to accept the differences and flaws of those we love with compassion and kindness.

 

The realms we traverse this week are wide-ranging and quite stimulating, especially on Friday when Mercury joins Sun in Gemini. We should be looking to the heart for guidance through the middle of the week, seeing as how the Leo Moon can shake up our pride and remind us why we need to fail sometimes. Taking that to heart, we must pace our voyage across the mental landscape with peace and tranquility as much as possible. If we can avoid stressful situations as much as possible, we are much more likely to come through the week feeling rejuvenated and restored instead of exhausted and depleted. Let’s never forget the wonders a loving friendship and companionship can provide to our often weary souls!
