This is a week of initiating influences that tremendously stimulates our minds, our emotions, and is sure to stir up some exciting new directions, if not only in our minds eye. While the high energy of Wednesday’s transits could prove overwhelming, the decompression of the weekend’s Cancer Moon will hopefully bring some relief and comfort into our perhaps otherwise stressful lives. Take heart that all the good that comes to us is deserved as blessings upon our weary soul and the plight it has endured. May the week bestow upon us all more compassion and forgiveness.

Moon in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn
Moon in Taurus sextile Saturn in Pisces
Our morning could feel a little edgy, like we need to answer to some unseen force that begs we face challenges head on instead of running from them. This is not an easy feat, but one that we can conquer with the influence of the Aries Moon. It’s likely the conversations will circle around any endeavors we have been itching to embark upon, so making sure we assess our resources, our tack, and how well we trim our sails will make a world of difference.
The way we go about our plans always hinges upon how well prepared we are to do so, so as mentioned above, making sure we can afford to do what it is we are seeking, how solid the foundation is beneath those plans, and how we devise our strategy to see it all through keeps us disciplined and well positioned to succeed.

Mercury in Virgo trine Jupiter in Taurus
Moon in Taurus square Venus in Leo
*Jupiter stations retrograde in Taurus*
Moon conjunct Jupiter in Taurus
Our financial situation is in the cards today, likely revisiting and reassessing our investments, our hopes and dreams for growth and security, and how we can improve upon it all. We might be inclined to discuss opportunities and the risk factors involved in those opportunities, either with a partner or an advisor. It is a really good day to spend analyzing these aspects of our lives, so setting aside a little time to do so is advised.
The morning could be a little choppy trying to clear up any differences of opinion we have with loved ones or those we feel the need to answer to. Our stubbornness and our egos can get the better of us if we are not careful and tactful with how and when we choose to communicate with anyone on matters of finances and desires. Might be best to wait until later in the day to do so. It probably wouldn’t hurt, either, to keep our grandiose ideas in check, thus avoiding any risk of over-reaching our capacity or means to manifest them.
Jupiter stationing retrograde allows for some very deep insight into our dreams and goals, and because it is virtually at a standstill, it has enormous power that can profoundly affect how we proceed with those dreams and goals. The most beneficial thing we can do is to sit quietly with our feelings and desires to determine just what it is we are seeking in life. How are we going to bring forth those desires if we don’t allow ourselves the time and space to understand exactly what they are?

Moon in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces
Moon in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn
Moon in Gemini square Saturn in Pisces
The Taurus Moon makes harmonious aspects to Neptune and Pluto today, bringing some grounding and pragmatism to the otherwise chaotic and insufferable experiences we may have been going through lately. Finding some way to exercise, stretch, do yoga, or get a massage will help bring our senses back to Earth so we can approach the day as present in our bodies as possible. This will help us soldier through the rough seas.
As the evening unfolds, we might feel a need to talk about the practicality of the structures we are building towards our future. We may also find ourselves face-to-face with certain boundary issues we have been having with someone. These boundaries are important to analyze and understand so that peace can be kept between all those involved. It is wise to not take for granted the universal lines that are drawn in the sands of time.

Mercury conjunct Sun in Virgo
Moon in Gemini sextile Venus in Leo
Moon in Gemini square Sun and Mercury in Virgo
It is a very Mercurial day. This means our communication lines, our plans, and how we manage our lives will come into sharp focus. There will likely be chatter, messages received, powerful revelations about our relationships, and any myriad kinds of information shared. Our minds are sure to be extremely stimulated by all kinds of things, so finding some way to relieve ourselves of that overwhelm would be helpful. Perhaps walking or running, meditating, talking about fascinating topics with a friend or two, or spending some time amongst the trees or chapparal can help calm the potential for nervous energy bubbling inside us.
One thing that really stands out about these configurations today is that we could very well find ourselves overthinking and overanalyzing so much about what is happening in our lives that we burn out and wish there was a pause button on our minds. This overthinking and analyzing can affect our relationships too, so be mindful that we are not the only one feeling such overwhelm and nervous energy. This can help us approach conversations and situations with more compassion and understanding. But it is also important to pay close attention to any important messages that seem to show up on our doorstep. The Messenger is afoot today, so we must be watchful for what we need to learn and know more about.

Moon in Gemini sextile Chiron in Aries
Moon in Gemini trine/sextile its Nodes
Moon in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces
Another day of mental acuity, though the flares have dimmed and the electric winds have died down a bit. Today we may be giving considerable consideration to the suffering and trauma endured in our lives. Maybe we can discover some form of reconciliation to accept those experiences as necessary to the development of our soul’s purpose and intentions in this lifetime. While it is horrific to imagine a purpose behind some terrible traumas, our resolve and capacity to help others who have endured similar plights is enhanced and can be embraced as a gift. How can we help prevent further suffering of not only those we love, but strangers we have never met before?
Today is also a good day to check in on our long-term outlook on life; our life plans, if you will. What do the next three, five, or ten years look like? How are we helping to facilitate the manifestation of our dreams? It is possible we stumble upon some opposition to where our imaginations have taken us lately. The hopes and dreams we have nurtured and developed could be challenged by others if we are not careful with how much we share with them today. Perhaps best to challenge them by ourselves to keep them pragmatic enough to attain them.

Sun in Virgo trine Jupiter in Taurus
Moon in Cancer trine Saturn in Pisces
Moon in Cancer square Mars in Libra
Sun-Jupiter trines in Earth signs bring glorious opportunities to materialize our dreams and desires. Though hard work and right action are hallmarks of Earth signs, there is a beautiful harmony to these two massive bodies in a trine aspect. A harmony that can be viscerally felt and seen on this material plane. A harmony that can literally be formed into matter out of spirit. A kind of alchemical magic that manifests. Taking this all into consideration should help shed some light on the relative benevolence they impart upon our day today.
Adding to the harmony is the Moon-Saturn water trine that is sure to stir some emotions and allow us to feel into the deepness of life’s fathomless wonders. We are likely to feel like venturing off into the wild blue and gold yonder to escape the frazzles endured earlier in the Mercurial week. These desires would be good to follow, as long as we are staying vigilant of our boundaries and responsibilities. Saturn is, after all, part of this concoction.
The evening could induce some longing for wherever we decided to escape to earlier in the day, perhaps making us feel as though we lack something we cannot find. There could also be some emotionally charged conversations to be had as the night sets in, so invoking the muses that sent us out to the yonder fields of bliss to subdue any angst or disagreements would be wise.

Moon in Cancer sextile Jupiter in Taurus and Sun in Virgo
Moon in Cancer square Chiron in Aries
Reflecting upon the visceral and magical harmonies that played out yesterday—perhaps materializing some form of benevolence into our lives—helps inspire a greater sense of security and comfort today. And while this is not guaranteed, we should analyze our scenario to see if something was hiding in the bushes waiting for us to discover it on our own. Whatever the case, we could likely find ourselves steeped in the process of developing greater security and comfort in our lives, whether through more nurturing and affection, or through further refinement of our life management faculties.
The afternoon could again stir up some memories of our sadness and pains, but they are there to remind us how important it is to be kind and caring to others. The pain teaches us how valuable it is to endure it so we learn how important it is to not inflict it. Welcoming the comforting and nurturing weekend with open arms will hopefully bring some cozy jams and comfy chow into it. Enjoy the best of what love, affection, and serenity have to teach us!
While we while away our time trying to keep it all together and not lose our heads, the rest of what goes on all around us inevitably impresses upon us the need for clarity, kindness, and greater understanding to make it through less scathed than if we chose a malevolent path. The whims and whirls of the week will hopefully bring more clarity, kindness, and understanding to us all, as long as we are keen to notice when it is gifted to us and when we can bestow it upon others. May our waning summer days be filled with love and simplicity.
