This week starts with the focus on mystery and fantasy, almost to the exclusion of all else. The Moon enters Scorpio on Monday, pushing us to feel everything intensely, desiring to dig into the mysterious and plumb its depths. The Moon also forms a trine with both Mercury in Cancer, where we will be responsive to others' perception of us, and Neptune in Pisces, where our thoughts will run toward the deep and profound. Neptune itself goes Retrograde on Monday afternoon. Under a retrograde Neptune, the mysterious nature of this planet intensifies, sometimes leading us to have trouble distinguishing fantasy from reality. This is a good time to pursue artistic pursuits as well as to take on a spiritual quest. The dangers of a Neptune Retrograde is that we can feel the need to escape altogether from reality. Addiction to alcohol or drugs becomes a real risk, or we can easily fall victim to con artists or charlatans.
We now have four Retrograde planets:
· Mercury- June 6th through July 1st
· Saturn- March 2nd through July 20th
· Pluto- April 14th through September 22nd
· Neptune- June 9th through November 16th
While this is not the moment to launch any major projects or commit to any long-term contracts, this is a very good time for you to slow down and assess your life. Are you getting the things you want out of life? Are the goals that you have set for yourself still relevant and is your playbook working to get you there? Are there destructive behaviors, such as addictions or escapism, which prevent you from reaching your potential? Do you communicate effectively, or do you push too hard and miss the mark? Retrogrades give you the chance to reevaluate, rethink, and rest, setting you up to start fresh when the planets go Direct. The idea of one Retrograde planet can be daunting; four in Retrograde can be terrifying, But, if youapproach this time with the right frame of mind (take it easy, expect things to go not so much as planned, be willing to view your life from a new perspective) this can be a very productive time period for you.
There is an opportunity on Tuesday afternoon into early Wednesday morning for bursts of intense focus and productivity, as the Moon is in conjunction with Saturn. This energy is best put to use following through on projects begun before May 29th.
Just after midnight on Friday morning, we are presented with the Full Moon in Sagittarius. As with all Full Moons, this signifies the period in which projects begun at the beginning of this Moon Cycle are ripening and coming to fruition. This is an excellent time to finish up projects, particularly those that revolve around sports, travel, higher education, and any risk-taking venture. This Full Moon is on an axis with the Sun in Gemini; under this influence, we are challenged to find a balance between our “higher minds”, our intuitive selves, and our “lower minds”, our ability to think logically and rationally.
If you are a job-seeker, Friday morning will be a great time to contact potential employers, sent out resumes, or interview: Saturn in Scorpio trines Chiron in Pisces; under this influence your strong will and hard work will aid in your job quest. At the same time Venus in Taurus sextiles Chiron, under which your social network and your hard work will dovetail to give you the opportunity to find the job of your dreams. Be warned: While this morning is favorable for the job search, it will offer peril for your interpersonal relationships. This morning, Venus opposes Saturn in Scorpio. Here, secrets you’d prefer be left hidden can to come to light and feelings are likely to be hurt; this or gossip are likely to damage friendships and other close relationships. Watch your own tendency to spread rumors; today, especially, it will not benefit you.
Early Friday afternoon, the Moon moves into Capricorn. Under this influence, we take on a very businesslike demeanor with our emotions well in check, almost to the point of being perceived as cold. This can become problematic when this Capricorn Moon moves into opposition to both Mercury and Jupiter a little later in the afternoon. Here, our rigid thinking can go to an extreme, to the point of appearing narrow-minded and thinking that any opinion other than our own is wrong. We are apt to run into conflicts with others and arguments are very likely. Try to keep your attitude in check or be prepared for a fight.
Sunday, Father's Day, opens with the Capricorn Moon quincunx the Sun in Gemini. Under this influence, your need to be disciplined is likely to be challenged by the desire to be active and play. Try to find a good balance between the two impulses. For those of you spending the day with Dad, I remind you that Saturn is still Retrograde. Saturn is the planet that represents the father. Today is one which will lend itself to resolving issues in this relationship. Even if Dad isn’t willing or able to work with you to bring about change, you will find yourself able to approach this relationship from a different (perhaps more adult) perspective, freeing you from the burdens of “Daddy Issues”.
I hope this helps you have a great week!
