Throughout this week we have some foggy, hectic, and confusing aspects occurring between Mercury, the Sun and Neptune, bringing the potential for everything from anxiety to escapism. This energy peaks mid-week as the Sun and Mercury in Gemini come into conjunction and quickly square Neptune in Pisces—an energy sure to leave many of us feeling frazzled and uncertain!
Monday (6/4): No major planetary or lunar aspects. The Moon is Void-of-Course in the enigmatic sign of Aquarius throughout the day today, indicating that the day is best spent in rest and contemplation or working toward wrapping up projects already in motion or takin care of mundane tasks.
Tuesday (6/5): The Moon moves into the mystical sign of Pisces at 3:53am MST, where it will remain for the next 2.5 days. The Moon takes on a magical quality in the sign of Pisces as our intuition deepens along with our compassion. There is a tendency to romanticize what’s happening all around us, seeing only what we want to see (rose-colored-glasses) or finding what we believe to be signs and synchronicities at every turn, regardless if the significance of such occurrences is real or not. On the flip side, this transit of the Moon is excellent for creativity and visualization, and is perfect for escaping from the day-to-day grind through meditation or spiritual seeking of all kinds (so long as we don’t allow ourselves to float too away!). The Moon makes supportive sextile over to both Saturn and Uranus today, bringing about the potential for intuitive inspiration that leads to positive, long-lasting change in our sense of comfort and security.
While Mercury is still strong in the sign of Gemini today, it’s influence is technically weakened as the planet ruling communication and intelligent thought moves toward it’s farthest possible position from us here on Earth (apogee). This may cause us to feel mentally disconnected or frazzled, and may cause issues with communication. The influence of Mercury at it’s apogee is most prominent for those with Gemini and Virgo Sun/Moon/Rising signs.
Mercury in Gemini comes into a conjunction with the Sun today, further disrupting the energy of Mercury. This energy heightens some of the more difficult energies of Mercury while simultaneously burning away the heightened curiosity, quick thinking and social intelligence brought on by the influence of Mercury in it’s home sign of Gemini. This is, of course, with the exception of the few moments when this aspect comes exact (7:02pm MST) when Mercury is considered to be elevated by it’s connection with the Sun. Today our minds may be on overdrive, leaving us frazzled, frustrated and unable to keep up with the metal demands of the day. Anxieties and nervous tensions are often heightened under this transit, especially for those who are already prone to being a bit high-strung. Take care to rest your mind and spend a bit of time in quiet and contemplation, even if it feels impossible to turn your brain off, as even a small reprieve can make a huge influence in negating the difficulties of this transit. If you have important, necessary communications or decisions to make, it’s best to plan such things for this evening when the conjunction between the Sun and Mercury comes exact.
Venus in the nurturing sign of Cancer makes a passionate opposition to Pluto in Capricorn today, brining the desire for intense intimacy and deep emotional connection in relationships. In money matters, power struggles can become more evident under this influence, especially involving joint finances and business partnerships. There can be a struggle between the need to find balance, harmony and connection with others and the need to attain and maintain one’s own internal and external sense of power. In romantic relationships, this aspect can heighten passions and obsessions, increasing both sexual desire and passiveness.
Wednesday (6/6): Today we enter the last quarter square of the Moon in Pisces—an ideal time for one final push to wrap up and finalize projects, plans and intentions seeded throughout this lunar cycle. The Moon will make positive aspects to Jupiter, Pluto and Venus today enhancing our mood and connecting us more easily to our psychic senses and intuitive abilities. Just be sure not to err too far on the side of the fantastical, as the Moon will conjunct Neptune mid-day—clouding our judgment and making it more difficult to be discerning when it comes to our emotions and the intuitive impressions we receive. The trine aspect between the Moon and Venus at the end of the day favors working in partnership with others.
Mercury and the Sun in Gemini, still connected in close conjunction, will both come into challenging squares with escapist Neptune in Pisces, making us much more prone to daydreaming and delusional thinking throughout the day today. Due to the fogginess and lack-of-clarity caused by this aspect, decision-making may not come easily today. People are more vulnerable to deception and subsequent disillusionment under this influence, so be wary of ideas and offers that seem too good to be true. This aspect most strongly influences the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces).
Thursday (6/7): No major planetary aspects. The Moon moves into the fiery and ambitious sign of Aries at 2:26pm, igniting emotional passions and propelling us forward for the next 2.5 days.
Have a beautiful week! Be sure to check back on Thursday for the weekend forecast! :)
