Warm and friendly evenings call up nostalgic memories and encourage us to take care of one another. We can reconnect with family or connect to memories of summers past as we watch fireflies twinkling in the balmy evenings. But in this process, old Cancerian family and nationalistic patterns can get triggered, old wounds can feel newly raw with the Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Mars, line up in domestic, protective Cancer this week, all underlined as Mars squares Jupiter, trines Neptune, conjuncts Mercury and approaches an opposition to Pluto.
This conga dance with Mars give us extra energy to do what needs to be done but can also instigate a defensive, aggressive edge wherever we feel our ordinary rights to live a safe, healthy life are endangered. Cancer urges us to appreciate and protect family, and by family we mean the larger family of humankind, home, homeland, and home planet. We desire a more ideal interaction and get potentially cynical with what we have instead, and can play this pattern out in our personal family dynamics as well around old wounds between races and countries. But every time the patterns from the past raise their head, we have a chance to shift it and change the story. Cool the temper and use this wisely, we have work to do. Don’t just get mad, make a difference; help change the paradigm.
During this domestic Cancerian time, let’s work with the image of home renovation; go back to a building we know and love and figure out what needs to be improved from the foundations up, and get to it under these energizing Mars aspects. We can improve and repair, update and beautify our home and relationships. Or we can just respond defensively and blow it up all over again. Let’s see if we can avoid dueling defenses, which can be a real problem under this Cancer line-up, where one person’s defenses set off another person’s edginess when both really just need reassurance and support. Don’t reinforce bad behavior with attention, but do address the real needs underneath in order to calm the wildfires.
The weekend begins under a sensitive, potentially emotional new Moon in Cancer which brings a chance to release old family cycles and begin anew. But we can feel anxious if we’re not sure what to release or how to start over. It can help to work together to further a goal. Our heart tenderizes as Venus trines Pluto on Sunday, though we may potentially feel lonely in a crowd or have trouble saying goodbye.
But if we’re not sure exactly what we’re ready to release or start, these aspects can bring up a sense of anxiety. It helps to work together to overcome an obstacle or further a goal rather than take this feisty competitive, pushy energy out on one another. Venus trines Pluto over the weekend and can help us value what’s close to our heart, because our heart is tender, potentially sore, lonely and proud. On Sunday, a Jupiter-Mars square sharpens that competitive edge, we may feel more brittle and guarded, more easily angered unless we give our restless Mars something constructive to do, like march in a pride parade or dance the night away.
Early in the week Mercury and Mars trine Neptune and spice up our intuition, encourage us to take a break from our challenges and indulge in summer, but also increase our ability to empathize. We get an opportunity to let go of some old patterns and shift into a more mutually respectful and caring version. Midweek we’ll need to make decisions based on that compassionate sensation. A Virgo Moon can sharpen our edges again but help us nail down the details of work that needs to be done. It furthers to have a garden to weed or an article to edit, rather than waste this energy worrying.
We may get depressed and have to watch out for a sense of hopelessness or overwhelm towards the end of the week as thoughtful Mercury opposes Pluto. Transportation can be problematic, and problems need to be fixed. We may need to discuss how cars, a Mercurial form, have recently been used as a weapon. Hang in there. Use experiences which could be discouraging to remember what is truly important and stay on track. Feel a shift coming in.
Friday, June 23 Memories feel so close to the surface, but we choose whether we remember the only the old problems, or review the past to make healthy decisions about the future as the Gemini Moon opposes serious Saturn, and both square Chiron. Multi-tasking competence abounds, as long as we have lists, as memory can be faulty. Comfort, good food, extra appreciation furthers around dinner time as the Moon enters deep-feeling Cancer, and conjuncts the Sun at 8:30 PM MDT. Because were feeling prickly, extra appreciation and kindness furthers.
Moon opposed Saturn 6:30 AM, Moon enters Cancer 4:03 PM, Moon conjunct Sun 8:30 PM.
Saturday, June 24: Start a new cycle; relocate, propagate the garden, or work for social justice as the fecund Cancer New Moon conjuncts Mercury and Mars. Tonight, it’s easy to feel left out or
long for something more than we have, and this can make it hard feel the joy in the moment as the Moon opposes Pluto. It will help to bond over the depths rather than hold each other responsible for this ache. Kindness furthers, let people of the hook and choose forgiveness.
Moon conjunct Mercury to 12 AM, Venus trine Pluto 2:59 AM, Moon conjunct Mars 1:09 PM, Moon square Jupiter 1:35 PM, Moon trine Neptune 2:41 PM, Moon opposed Pluto 9:29 PM.
Sunday, June 25: A competitive, territorial streak makes for a great sports game, nasty sibling rivalry or international friction. The Moon enters more sociable Leo to night which can either fuel the fire or give us a chance to chance to shift gears and socialize. Connect from the heart. Let the summer’s evening help us step out of the tension and into possibility.
Mars square Jupiter 2:07 AM, Moon square Uranus 12:44 PM, Moon enter Leo 4:06 PM.
Monday, June 26: Even though our work weeks begun, we may need to take a break under this Leo Moon and as Mars trines escapist, imaginative Neptune. This aspect can help us let go of old anger, but also leave us disorganized or unsure of what we want. Create healing moments rather than try to push through.
Mars trine Neptune 12:18 AM.
Tuesday, June 27: An interesting opportunity arises if we keep lines of communication open even if were feeling a little tactless. People are more willing to tell stories than to really talk about what’s going on and process their tender guts, but we can hear the information we need in those stories as Mercury in Cancer squares Jupiter and trines Neptune. Make the most of a potential for good changes early in the day. Tonight the Moon heads into Virgo, helps us get back on task, but a tendency to worry can make us cranky.
Moon square Venus 4:29 AM, Moon trine Saturn 7:38 AM, Mercury square Jupiter 12:20 PM, Moon trine Uranus 3:11 PM, Mercury trine Neptune 6:22 PM, Moon enters Virgo 40 1 PM
Wednesday, June 28: Is it good, is it healing? If not, maybe we shouldn’t say it today; Mercury conjuncts Mars and brings a decisive time to let go or let it rip, and then move forward. It’s easy to get sharp-edged or cranky with one another, we can feel like no one’s doing quite enough, but that attitude is probably an illusion, and will not further, so let’s not say the unforgivable. Be safe around modes of transportation and temperamental people. Tend anxieties with gentleness, tend real problems with solid action.Tonight, do not ask much of the psyche, everyone needs a moment off or with spirit to renew as the Moon opposes Neptune.
Mercury conjunct Mars 10:50 PM, Moon opposed Neptune 7:57 PM.
Thursday, June 29: We can get depressed today, feeling inadequate or not enough, worried about the future as the Moon squares serious Saturn, Mercury opposes intense Pluto and brings our attention to look on the dark side. Transportation can be problematic. Our suspicious are either confirmed, or we have to let them go and free that energy. Or it may just be time to say goodbye. We can pour this questioning intensity into our artwork, or we can grow our confidence as we face our worst-case scenario and clear the dross of inessentials. face our worst-case scenario. Honor those moody feelings rather than fight them, just don’t hold on to them and loose proportion. Healing opportunities arise as evening progresses and the Moon opposes Chiron.
Moon trine Pluto 3:31 AM, Moon square Saturn 12:51 PM, Moon trine Venus 2:34 PM, Mercury opposed Pluto 6:35 PM, Moon opposed Chiron 10:54 PM.

On Tuesday the Sun enters Cancer, summer begins, and we enter picnic season. We can use the extra light of this week of longest days to illuminate what’s really going on, to highlight consequences of our actions and help us see the path ahead. There is a lot to see because there’s a lot on the table.
Chiron sets an underlying theme for the week. As the Sun illuminates the consequences of our actions in the past, present, and the foreseeable future, we need to look at what we learned through the tough twists and turns of our life, distill this understanding and offer it in the present moment as Venus, the Sun, and Mercury all form aspects to the asteroid Chiron, a symbol of the wounded healer. It’s a good week to remember what we learned and pass on. Just share the story or stand witness and the pearls of the of experience.
On Friday, every news story seems complex and woven with many different angles under a sensitive Pisces Moon and as Neptune retrogrades. No story seems to have a quick and easy answer because the stars ask us to look at the subtler complexities and entanglements. We’ll see this in the political headlines as well as in simple family matters. A sensitive Pisces Moon can leave us feeling a little peeled and vulnerable, so it’s not a good day to push anybody out of their comfort zone and into the decision-making process.
Neptune stations retrograde, squares Mercury, and adds to confusing decisions and an uncertainty about the future. It also adds to health problems related to pollution, to obstruction, gas leaks and other Neptunian problems, so stay aware.
Venus is now in its own earthy sign of Taurus and encourages us to stay grounded throughout this, no matter how buzzy or busy or unreal the general vibe can be. Stay grounded through simple earthy summer pleasures, fresh water, muscles stretched in the sunlight, practical answers, grilled vegetables, fresh fruit, and summer romance. As Venus approaches a trine to Pluto at the end of the week she encourages us to move out of shallow and entangled thinking, which can be one of Gemini’s problems, and into healthy and practical solutions, even when the going gets tough.
Generally, Taurus encourages us to hold on and collect, so it can be hard to let go of any person, thing, or idea right now with Venus in Taurus, but that may be exactly what we need to do for further progress. Somehow we need to lighten our load to create room for the future.
We may be thinking seriously, but also ready to change and adapt this weekend, ready to organize and find practical solutions because the Sun sextiles versatile Uranus and helps us switch gears, while Mercury opposes Saturn and brings mental durability and tenacity, even when that’s not productive. Some people want to really hammer through a tough conversation, and others just want change the subject.
Summer officially begins at 10:24 PM on Tuesday, June 20 as the Sun enters Cancer. On this longest day, our feelings may be unusually soft as Venus sextiles Neptune. We may need to take a long hard look at our chosen and biological family, and our sense of home, whether we define home as a house, country or planet. Inventory relationships and sort what needs maintenance, what we need to let go, and what we need to nurture.
Friday, June 16: Early morning sensitivity and confusion can morph into creativity midday, though people may stay thin-skinned. Look for an important understanding late afternoon as the Moon sextiles Pluto, offer unspoken reassurance where needed. Conversation bubbles tonight, though don’t take it personally if attention spans are short.
Neptune retrogrades 5:09 AM. Moon conjunct Neptune 7:10 AM, Moon sextile Pluto 3:20 PM, Moon square Mercury 6:29 PM.
Saturday, June 17: Hurry up and wait, work with a sense of irritating urgency as the Moon enters Aries around noon, but notice that some of this pressure is an illusion. Work with the energy, but add patience to keep it productive. Old wounds twinge, sore muscles or tender psyches, take care of it and don’t project that pain on this moment.
Moon square Mercury 1:44 AM, Moon square Sun 5:32 AM, Moon enters Aries 11:54 AM.
Sunday, June 18: Father’s Day with under a macho Aries Moon can bring out the competitive attitude, perfect for backyard sports. A macho Aries moon brings out a competitive streak this Father’s Day, but also a willingness to shift old patterns and try something new. Mental Mercury opposes serious Saturn and loans us mental tenacity to perseverate in a tough discussion or complete a project. Don’t get caught in a tug-of-willpower. Tonight, emotions overflow, the bittersweet and the bitter and mingle as the Moon squares Pluto. Share the love.
Moon square Mars 4:02 AM, Moon opposed Jupiter 11:28 AM, Sun sextile Uranus 12:47 PM, Mercury opposed Saturn 1:07 PM, Moon square Pluto 8:36 PM.
Monday, June 19: Hit the ground running this morning as the Aries Moon trine’s constructive Saturn then conjunct Uranus. People are edgy and not particularly polite as the Sun semi-squares Venus butts we can accomplish a lot a short period of time. Hurry do not rush or expect to be redoing the work. Some emotional soreness tonight needs comforting in order to help us distill the wisdom as Venus and the Sun challenge Chiron and the Moon enters more settled, earthy Taurus. Cuddling helps.
Venus quincunx Jupiter 5:49 AM, Moon trine Saturn 6:07 AM, Moon sextile Mercury 9:19 AM, Moon conjunct Uranus 12:05 PM, Sun semi-square Venus 12:08 PM, Moon sextile Sun 1:41 PM, Moon enters Taurus 3:52 PM, Venus semi-square Chiron 4:03 PM, Sun square Chiron 4:25 PM.
Tuesday, June 20: Happy summer solstice. Slow and steady wins, even if there is no race. Feel the gentle magic as Venus sextiles Neptune, though whispers from the past can tweak sensitive feelings. Evening encourages warmhearted beauty and strengthen community if we can just share a magical moment together as the Moon conjuncts Venus and the Sun enters Cancer at 10:24 PM. Let the light of this longest day shine on what’s working, because this gratitude helps us handle all those other dark corners.
Venus sextile Neptune 2:25 AM, Mercury sextile Uranus 3:30 AM, Moon sextile Mars 9:20 AM, Mercury square Chiron 3:01 PM, Moon sextile Neptune 3:24 PM, Moon conjunct Venus 4:24 PM, Sun enters cancer and summer begins 10:24 PM, Moon trine Pluto 10:25 PM.
Wednesday, June 21: The Moon enters talkative Gemini as Mercury leaves Gemini and enters more emotionally based cancer and we may want to go to a chosen home or to our family. Tell stories instead of sound bites. Expect some disagreements around matters of the home, how things are moved or placed; instead of making someone wrong, explore healthy compromise. Mixed feelings can pull us in many directions, but really, we know what we have to do for the moment. Let’s take care of ourselves without jumping into defensiveness.
Mercury enters cancer 3:57 AM, the Sun conjuncts Mercury 8:14 AM, Mercury semi squares Venus 11:54 AM the Moon enters Gemini 4:44 PM.
Thursday, June 22: Let this be a summers day; putter, meander, swing in the hammock. Since the mood is not efficient, we might as well rest and recuperate. If we have to work, we can multitask and juggle possibilities better than concentrate. Errands further. The mood may be beneficent this afternoon, but with more haunted edges later on.
Moon trine Jupiter 2:04 PM Moon square Neptune 3:18 PM.

Take communication both seriously and with a lighthearted touch this week, expect life to be a woven brocade of fun and worry, profound conversations and blustering bravado, sizzling revelations and meaningless tweets, summer gossip and friendly processing.
We’ll be running extra nervous voltage and may have conflicting stories to sift through. Though we may also be able to jiggle loose some hidden information or lost objects, and stretch our minds to juggle new possibilities into place under this changeable, nervy energy. With the Sun and Mercury in talkative Mercury-ruled Gemini, the conversation can range from lightweight summer fare to what truly worries and concerns us in short cycles. If a person changes subjects often, they circle back around to the important conversation, but it may be hard to stay on track, especially where the conversation touches on important emotions.
Friday begins under a full Moon in Sagittarius, a full Moon which brings up our hunger for personal and political freedom, freedom to roam the wild world, freedom to graduate and move on, or freedom from a bad job or profound oppression. We celebrate the right to speak up with honesty, a great Sagittarian trait, to blow a whistle or just tell someone how we really feel. But watch a tendency to weave wild stories- another Sagittarian trait where honesty has been abandoned. We may also want to celebrate the right to travel in mind, body or spirit and cavort outside, make travel plans, or become more aware of other countries besides our own.
Over the weekend a Capricorn Moon loans us industriousness if we have a plan, or potential crankiness if we don’t. We can build, assemble, and organize and will probably be happier and have more equanimity if we can through ourselves into a project of our own choosing. We just tend to say too much as Mercury form a pot-stirring, anxious semi-square to Uranus on Sunday
Early next week an Aquarius Moon along with a Mercury-Uranus semi-square, Mercury-Jupiter trine, and Mercury-Neptune square, brings our attention back to the big picture, to our friendships our community and to global politics. Though we may not know what is going on and who will next lead Britain with strong cross currents of information flowing.
We can use that liberating trine between mental Mercury and Jupiter to free our minds of some preconception and create more room for better options. But some of the world’s commentary will be just off, tangential. Strange tweets can amuse us or complicate our political scene as the impulse control lowers and people say what they feel before thinking of the consequences. Communication glitches can form between countries and political parties. It won’t further to| push the opposing parties until they are ready, but we can take the focus off the blockage and look for a creative end run.
Underneath this nervy, talkative, exterior, our feelings can run deep, if usually warm-hearted as Mars in sensitive, protective, well-guarded Cancer forms a friendly sextile with Venus in earthy Taurus. But this means feelings run strong in all directions. We can waft practical sympathy with one another and appreciate simple friendship, though we’ll tend to express it more through our energy and actions than our words, which will be busy elsewhere. We can easily bond together to work on important causes, but this goes for all perspectives. In general, people may talk easily but act on strong territorial, self-protective, and passionate feelings.
Instruments of communication and transportation get complicated towards the end of the week, so keep an eye out for missing cell phones or dangerous traffic patterns. Our feelings sensitize, and the woes of the world can set heavily on us. Keep talking, keep lines of communication open. Check all facts though before repeating conversations and or exciting or scandalous headlines. And most importantly, keep the heart and head connected.
Friday, June 9: The full Sagittarius Moon calls us to break free and reminds us we are a global citizen, connected to the world’s agonies and excitements. We may want to celebrate some3 form of liberation and make steps towards our next chapter. In a bittersweet tone, a challenging Sun-Pluto quincunx reminds us how easily all this can go away, but this can help make each moment precious, each shimmering leaf or petal dancing in the sunlight becomes a communion with the natural world.
Sun quincunx Pluto 5:38 AM, full Moon in Sagittarius 7:09 AM, Jupiter turns direct 8:02 AM, Venus sex tiles Mars 9:40 AM, Moon conjunct Saturn 7:18 PM.
Saturday, June 10: Fresh industriousness urges us to get to some personal work and can leave us grim and grumpy if we don’t feel we’re making progress. A slight competitive edge brings up jealousy or competition if we see others succeeding where we feel stuck, unless we open our hearts further, celebrate for them and be inspired to improve. Tonight, the Moon forms a lovely trine to Venus in earthy signs and we can relax and indulge in the gifts of summer.
Moon trine Uranus 12:20 AM, Moon enters Capricorn 5:36 AM, Moon opposes Mars 1:49 PM, Moon trine Venus 2:42 PM.
Sunday, June 11: Morning is more relaxed and confident, though our sense of humor may still be fugitive. This afternoon, if we’re feeling grim, overwhelmed, or serious, it furthers to be kind to those feelings as the Moon conjuncts Pluto, but stay in the present moment. Watch out for power struggles or as a way of managing anxiety. It furthers to have something positive or constructive to obsess upon.
Moon square Jupiter 8:13 AM, Moon sextile Neptune 10:18 AM, Moon conjunct Pluto 7:22 PM.
Monday, June 12: On this tangential morning, check in with one another, get organized and connected, notice what has changed or shifted over the weekend. Drop into the heart and be present for one another, particularly if feeling discombobulated. Tie up loose ends rather than initiate new projects midday, then check in with team or community as the Moon enters Aquarius tonight. Just don’t ask anyone what they really feel, they’d be willing to tell if they knew.
Moon square Uranus 12:45 PM, Moon semi-square Neptune 4:16 PM, Moon enters Aquarius 5:44 PM.
Tuesday, June 13: We can feel unsettled this morning, through disposition or unexpected news as Mercury semi-squares Uranus. Midday, a flow of cooperation can re-instill optimism as Mercury trines Jupiter. Tonight, the input is more confusing, if potentially magic. Keep the eyes on potentially unpredictable weather or changing circumstances.
Mercury semi-square Uranus 1:17 AM, Moon square Venus 8:07 AM, Mercury trine Jupiter 9:44 AM, Moon trine Jupiter 7:52 PM.
Wednesday, June 14: Mood can float oddly today, momentum is hard to build, because we need to catch up and heal. Destress, reconnect, and just be. Sort out more important matters that come to the surface in a moment of calm. People are a little disconnected still and although feeling deeply and happy to talk, they may have trouble talking about the deep feelings.
Moon trine Sun 4:52 PM, Moon sextile Saturn 5:48 PM, Moon sextile Uranus 11:39 PM.
Thursday, June 15: Be really supportive of one another today, as it is all too easy to feel overwhelmed or depressed by serious events or issues, or by just a fresh awareness of the work ahead as the Sun opposes Saturn and Mercury quincunx Pluto. Watch where the imagination takes the mind, and stay in the driver’s seat. Do not guilt-trip, even if feeling victimized, as people will have an allergic reaction and not make the needed changes. Let’s be careful to say what we mean rather than use our words to lash out under stress. Hold hands. Gentleness goes a long way.
Moon enters Pisces 4:17 AM, Sun opposes Saturn 4:17 AM, Venus sesqui-quadrate Saturn 12:01 PM, Moon trine Mars 6:32 PM, Moon sextile Venus 11:08 PM Mercury quincunx Pluto 11:35 PM.

Welcome to Memorial Day weekend, and as expected on a versatile Gemini Sun holiday, this weekend now has a multiplicity of meanings and ways to celebrate. We’re called to remember those who gave their all in military service as well as celebrate weddings and graduations, take advantage of blowout sales and tackle our summer-preparation home chores. Gemini is the master of the multitask, we may be able to concentrate best when we have several pots cooking, but let’s not get spread too thin.
This holiday weekend comes at a really good time for many people. Last week Saturn trine Uranus, an aspect that can relieve pressure by creating changes, but can really unsettle ordinary routines, work, systems of power, authority structures. Our security can feel challenged, and work may have unusual exciting or been a real pain lately.
This unsettled quality to our work needs more attention this week as Mars opposes Saturn, an aspect which can leave us frustrated because we can’t always do what we want to do until we crank through our work and responsibility. It can also bring some tough lessons home to roost if we have let our responsibilities slide or have misused our personal authority. Which might bring interesting consequences in our current political scene.
Now these changes to our Saturnine systems can be good news if the old patterns aren’t working for us. But people who are insecure in their authority may be unusually anxious, particularly if they are new at the job or feel out of control. This nervousness can lead to bad management, and that will take grace to contain and heal.
For all of us who are in any sort of position of authority, let’s see if we can pour out authentic reassurance and be grateful for what works to reassure the troops. If emotional patterns or sore points stir up, it furthers to practice good self-care and retrain our nervous system. If the person above us is acting out because they’re feeling insecure, we may need to lead upwards; instead of reacting and getting our feelings hurt from their brittleness, find some way to encourage collaboration. And possibly most important, if we have time off this weekend, let’s really put those work problems aside and take a deep breath, so we can return next week with more resilience.
This weekend will be busy enough with other things; we may need to multi-task up a storm with the Sun, Moon, and Mars all in Gemini. On Friday and into Saturday the mood is nervy, verbal, funny but easily worried. Venus in Aries helps us do what needs to be done, but keeps the heat simmering on all our emotional responses, both the highs and the lows, so we may say more than we intend. Or just spill national secrets.
The mood becomes less buzzy and more cozy as the Moon enters sensitive, domestic, if self-protective Cancer on Saturday. A friendly sextile between Mercury and imaginative Neptune encourages a nice splash in the water and empathic conversation, but it can also leave us feeling like we need some time out of ordinary reality. Enjoy a break, but watch out for inebriated drivers.
On Sunday and Monday those household chores beckon as willful Mars opposes responsible Saturn. If we can’t do what we really want to do, let’s make the best of what we end up doing instead. Monday may be the best time for a community picnic as the Moon heads into sociable Leo.
Midweek that capacity to multi-task may be put to the test, we can be really busy but buzz from task to task without much opportunity to complete them. We may be tempted to speak with more indignation and surprise than we really feel, so let’s keep it real and see if we can find the facts amid any hubbub. Mercury trines Pluto on Wednesday and truth comes out, lost objects can be found and information exchanged. And that new information may help us make important decisions.
Friday, May 26: Yesterday’s New Moon in Gemini continues to vibrate and impart a funny, flirtatious, repartee but suggests we have thousands of unfinished conversations and projects that need tending to ASAP. Let’s prioritize and follow through. Morning flows fairly smoothly, if a nit nervy and scattered, with a few unexpected errands. Tonight, the energy is articulate but brittle as the Moon conjuncts irritable Mars and opposes serious Saturn. Morning flows fairly smoothly, tonight brings flare-up of impatience or edgy humor as the Moon conjuncts Mars and then opposes Saturn. Let’s engage the great and potentially deep conversation, but be careful with feelings in our witticisms and not take it too personally if other people’s nerves make them brittle.
Moon trine Jupiter 3:26 AM, Moon square Neptune 4:24 PM, Moon sextile Venus 1:49 PM, Moon conjunct Mars 8:20 PM, Moon opposed Saturn 10:52 PM.
Saturday, May 27: This morning it pays to rattle around and have conversations, as the mood is generally extroverted and talkative. We turn inwards or more introverted this afternoon, the mood shifts towards long walks, picnics with those we know well, house projects, and domestic policy. If familiar irritants stir up, habits that we are allergic to, we can practice better self-care this time as Mercury semi-squares Chiron and quincunx Jupiter. Good food furthers.
Moon sextile Uranus 12:18 AM, Moon enters Cancer 5:24 AM, Mercury semi-square Chiron 11:21 PM, Mercury quincunx Jupiter1:17 PM.
Sunday, May 28: Keep the agenda low this morning; sit with spirit and memories, and a nice glass of iced tea, as Mercury sextiles dreamy Neptune. Swim or sweat, let water work its magic. Feelings stir strongly midday as the Moon opposes Pluto and we sensitize to partings, both temporary and permanent. Honor memories of the past, but don’t project these feeling onto the future.
Mercury sextile Neptune 1:03 AM, Moon trine Jupiter 2:56 AM, Moon trine Neptune 4:07 AM, Moon sextile Mercury 4:27 AM, Moon opposed Pluto 12:05 PM, Moon square Venus 5:02 PM.
Monday, May 29: Responsibilities come due, the chores catch up with us this morning. The mood becomes more festive and sociable this evening as the Moon enters Leo, perfect for gatherings. Ego issues can complicate if we try to collaborate on a project later in the day because everyone thinks they have the right idea, but will improve with patience and mutual appreciation.
Mars opposed Saturn 12:54 AM, Moon square Uranus 12:58 AM, Moon enters Leo 6:11 AM, Moon sextile Sun 9:17 PM.
Tuesday, May 30: Keep an eye on changing circumstances; events move fast, news and opportunity flicker by as active Mars sextiles unsettled Uranus. Impatience and irritation may provoke potentially productive action, but we have to stay in the driver seat. Consequences come home to roost. Results of long efforts may begin to show results.
Moon sextiles Jupiter for 50 6 AM, Moon square Mercury 12:47 PM, Mars sextiles Uranus 8:39 PM, Moon trine Venus 11:53 PM.
Wednesday, May 31: Our minds can work over time, we may think too much and have trouble staying in our hearts as Mercury trines investigative Pluto while the Moon enters Mercurial Virgo. Go deep, get profound, but don’t worry as a recreational sport. Catalog personal successes and strong points with kindness so the Virgo self-consciousness doesn’t become unproductive. Look for interesting investigative results; find missing things, buried answers, and fresh truths.
Moon trine Saturn 2:22 AM, Moon trine Uranus 4:50 AM, Moon sextile Mars 5:14 AM, Mercury trine Pluto 6:02 AM, Moon enters Virgo 10:15 AM.
Thursday, June 1: Be ready to meet new people, ready to let go of stuff, thoughts, people of the past and strike out in new territory as Venus approaches a conjunction with Uranus. Old problems may beckon but we can stay on target. Sure, we value loyalty from the past and the beauty of old things as Venus also trine Saturn, but may really not be interested in what no longer works.
Moon square Sun 6:42 AM, Venus trine Saturn 9:23 AM. Moon opposed Neptune 12:14 PM, Moon trine Pluto 9:09 PM.
