This week is off to an interesting and karmic start with Mercury at the final degrees of Taurus coming into a challenging square with the lunar nodes before moving into its home sign of Gemini. Whenever the Lunar Nodes are involved, we can expect messages to come through in the form of omens, synchronicities, and strange, fated circumstances that show up in unusual ways. With Mercury in the mix these messages will likely come through in the form of frustrated thoughts and disruptive communications, so be sure to keep your eyes and ears open!
Monday (6/5): Mercury finishes out its transit through the slow and sensual sign of Taurus tomorrow, but not before making one final challenging aspect to the North & South Nodes! As I mentioned above, Mercury’s square to the nodes is a difficult aspect that challenges us to move more deeply into a more fated, destined path. With the North Node transiting Leo, we are all being called to become more authentic and courageous in our daily lives. Many of us may feel compelled to jump headfirst into a new path unlike any we’ve ever walked before, while others may be feeling ambivalent about the work required, gravitating toward the tried-and-true route that feels most comfortable. Pay close attention to difficulties that come up and any messages received today, as there is likely a deeper meaning behind the events that unfold.
Tuesday (6/6): Mercury moves into its home sign of Gemini today, sharpening our minds and piquing our curiosity over these next couple of weeks. When Mercury is in Gemini, our minds become extremely quick and versatile, more easily able to jump from one topic to the next. As Gemini is the sign of duality, this influence can also cause us to change opinions often or to have trouble making up our minds. Now is an excellent time to learn new skills, and lots of them! As we have trouble sticking to one topic under the influence of Mercury in Gemini, now is a time to explore a variety of new things so as not to lose interest.
Venus is also coming home today to its natural sign of Taurus. Under the influence of Venus in Taurus, we become much more sensual and romantic. Our senses become heightened and we are better able to appreciate beauty and pleasure in all its forms. Now is a time when we can savor rich foods, enjoy the beauty of nature, and fully immerse ourselves in all types of sensory experience. This aspect also brings greater stability to our finances (especially for Aries rising people!) and relationships (that goes double for all of you Scorpios!).
Finally, we have some more karmic nodal action with Uranus coming into a harmonious trine with the North Node in Leo and into sextile with the South Node in Aquarius. With Uranus in the mix, we can expect the unexpected and may be guided into a new more genuine, heart-centered path by some very unusual and fated circumstances. If we follow the Universe's lead, this can also help us to shed some South Node karma in the way of letting go of overly-rebellious behavior or causes that are not our own. Now is a time to dive deep into our own hearts and creative passions born out of our deeper Truth.

Wednesday (6/8): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is waxing to fullness in the optimistic and adventurous sign of Sagittarius today.
The moon in Sagittarius feels optimistic and expansive. There is an enhanced ability to view the world through the lens of positive emotion. People may feel more adventurous, independent-minded and sociable. One may find greater meaning behind everyday experiences. People may find themselves contemplating deeply held values and beliefs as they relate to one’s emotional understanding of the world around them. This is an optimal time to initiate travel plans or to enjoy risky, adrenaline fueled activities, such as mountain climbing or skydiving, which provide the opportunity to experience the expansiveness of the natural world in a way that is both sensational and exhilarating.
Thursday (6/8): No major planetary aspects. The Moon continues to grow into fullness as we gear up for the Full Moon in Sagittarius tomorrow morning! Check back later in the week for the complete rundown of this very powerful Full Moon!
I hope you all have a beautiful week! Check back on Thursday for the Weekend Forecast! ☺
