Between eclipses, beyond horoscopes: the planets' positions, their relation to us, on planet Earth. Astrologically speaking...you'll want to know...
Friday, June 10 right now we’re in between eclipses. A partial solar eclipse took place on June first, on June 15th a total lunar eclipse will take place. Everything is a bit more intense and important. Your decisions will have big impact for the year ahead. Venus enters Gemini today and remains in this very sociable air sign until July 4. This is the last day that Venus is aspecting Neptune, which has been somewhat frustrating. That’s because this aspect causes you to have an unclear outlook on certain relationships. Honest conversation will make all the difference. The Sun and Mercury are close together in Gemini. Your mind is very active and you need someone to bounce your ideas off of.
Saturday, June 11 Venus in Gemini is nicely aspecting Uranus in Aries. This is all about meeting new people and getting out more. You’re more open minded about who you’re attracted to for a potential partner. Anyone who was born between March 25-28 or May 25-28 (of any year) will find that life has become more interesting. The Sun and Mercury are conjunct until Sunday night. Conversations tend to be more animated. Between 8-11 p.m. the Moon will be aspecting Neptune and Jupiter making is a very romantic phase.
Sunday, June 12 Venus is aspecting Uranus until midnight. Romance is in the air. This is also a very creative time when you’re apt to be thinking in new ways of discovering how to express your feelings artistically. Saturn has been retrograde since January 26 and is finally turning direct tonight at 11:53 p.m. Saturn has blocked forward momentum for many of us, especially those involved with the legal system. You should notice the change starting tomorrow.
Monday, June 13 we’re approaching the total lunar eclipse on Wednesday. Those who are psychically sensitive will be feeling the shift in the energy. Pay attention to your pets’ behavior. Or ask the pet store owners if they notice anything odd about the pets in the shop? Try to keep an open mind. This eclipse will have us looking at our beliefs. It’s time to figure out which beliefs you’ve carted around which no longer make sense to you, and release them. There’s tension in the air with Mars harshly aspecting Pluto. This is not a calm carefree day. Between 11:45 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. the Moon will be opposite Mars which usually brings about conflict. Mercury is in a positive aspect with Mars. This is very good for open honest communications which could resolve tensions.
Tuesday, June 14 is smoother than yesterday with all it’s ups and downs. We’re closer to the eclipse on Wednesday afternoon. You might be feeling more emotional than usual. Venus is in a positive aspect with Saturn. Those who you rely on are steadfast, and you’re feeling very grateful for those friends. Mercury is nicely aspecting both Jupiter and Neptune until Friday night. Profound insights will come to you if you’re open minded. The (full moon) total lunar eclipse takes place at 4:12 p.m. with the Moon 24 degrees of Sagittarius and the Sun at 24 degrees of Gemini. This eclipse is visible over Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. It is said to be one of the darkest eclipses ever. Another interesting point about this particular eclipse is that it is located at the galactic center of our galaxy at 26 degrees of Sagittarius. What does this mean? I believe that our planet is coming into a new phase never experienced before and that we must shift and expand our awareness. Otherwise events may happen so quickly that we can’t comprehend it. I’m referring to the period of one year from this eclipse. The next eclipse is July first and is intimately connected to the USA birth chart for July 4th 1776. The people have power to make positive changes, but not by reacting with violence and anger. The people need to take the lead by speaking directly to the local and national representatives. This is a democracy and we need to take action to make sure that it remains that way. Right now there are certain wealthy people thinking they can run our planet like a chessboard. That time is coming to an end, and they know it.
Thursday, June 16 Mercury is aspecting Uranus, Jupiter, and Pluto finding us more outspoken. No more holding back. Mercury will enter into Cancer at 3:09 p.m. remaining in this emotionally charged water sign until July 2. Mercury in Cancer shows us where we have been influenced by religious dogma, teachers, political party lines, society and friends. If you think a certain way then you’re not patriotic. How often has that vibe been implied as a way to stop you from thinking or speaking out? It’s time to reexamine your beliefs and opinions and create your own. “Think for yourself,” is the motto this eclipse is wanting us all to live by. One more thing: Venus is still in a positive aspect with Saturn until Friday night. There are certain people you can rely on to be there for you no matter what. This are lifetime connections which deserve special attention and appreciation.
