This weekend brings an enigmatic combination of stern, Saturnian energy— causing us to become more stern, somber, and focused on our responsibilities— and some very active and beneficial, influences involving Uranus and Pluto, allowing us to break through mental blocks and barriers to success in order to become more liberated and transformed!Read More
We’re diving deep this weekend with lots of intense, passionate, Scorpio energy— compelling us to look far below the surface of what is normally recognized and seen. We also have Mars finishing out its transit through the pragmatic, analytical sign of Virgo and into the more balanced sign of Libra at the tail end of this weekend, compelling us to take action to create greater harmony in our partnerships.Read More
There are no major planetary aspects this weekend, which is certainly a good thing as we begin to come off of the intense energy of Uranus stationing on Wednesday, and Jupiter making it’s final square to Pluto in Capricorn toward the end of the week on Thursday. While the Moon will be waxing in Capricorn throughout most of this weekend triggering both of these intense aspects, we’re also being given a brief opportunity to ground and regroup as we prepare for Monday’s Full Moon and partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius— marking both a culmination and turning point in our lives that requires us to surrender in all the right ways. As we move into this weekend, it is wise to reflect on the different aspects of our lives that no longer align with our hearts desire. There is likely some energy, situation, relationship, commitment, or dogmatic belief system being highlighted at this time that began long ago and has since run it’s course. Now is a potent time of change, transition, endings, and letting go, and this weekend provides us an opportunity to distance ourselves from strong emotional attachments in order to look at things more practically, insuring that we’re letting go of all the right things in order to make space for something much more beautiful to unfold.Read More
Venus is getting a lot of action at the tail end of this week and into this weekend, stirring up a lot of energy surrounding relationships, finances and material matters. On Thursday, Venus came into a harmonious trine with Saturn in Sagittarius while sitting right in the middle of the Uranus-Eris conjunction— revealing things we don’t necessarily want to see about our relationships and financial situations and prompting us all to take calculated risks in order to resolve power struggles and restore balance moving forward. This energy continues into Saturday with Venus making it’s exact conjunction with Uranus while coming into trine with the North Node in Leo. This aspect brings flashes of insight and fated circumstances that serve to guide us toward the right relationships, which will help to move us into a more courageous and heart-centered path.
Friday (6/2): No major planetary aspects. The Moon goes Void-of-Course (VOC) in Virgo from 2:53pm-5:08pm MST when it moves into the beautiful and balanced sign of Libra.
Saturday (6/3): We have a lot going on in the skies today! Venus in Aries will come into an exact conjunction with Uranus today, bringing unexpected events surrounding relationships up to the surface. Uranus is the great disrupter and can cause disturbance to the balance and harmony that Venus desires. This disruption may come in the form of chaotic circumstances or unexpected insights, and although this aspect may leave some of us feeling frustrated and tense, for the most part I see this transit as bringing many benefits. Venus is still in close trine with Saturn in Sagittarius, an aspect that came exact on Thursday of this week, grounding the energy and adding a layer of stability integrity into the mix. Venus conjunct Uranus requires that we make some sort of change involving our close partnerships, romantic and otherwise, and so long as we are thinking things through and acting in integrity, the changes we make at this time can yield very positive results.
In addition to her conjunction with Uranus, Venus will be coming into a harmonious trine with the North Node bringing new, very fated and destined relationships into our world. As with any transit involving the Lunar Nodes, pay close attention to messages and insights that come up today (especially with Uranus in the mix) as the circumstances that arise are meant to guide us in the direction of a new, more courageous path. Now is a time to connect from the heart and share our passions and creativity with the people we love most.
We have another powerful, beneficial aspect today with the Sun in Gemini coming into a beautiful trine with expansive and optimistic Jupiter in Libra. Under the influence of the Sun and Jupiter, we can feel much more confident and self-assured. We feel much lighter, more jovial and expansive when Jupiter comes into positive aspect with the Sun. Now is an excellent time to take off and have an adventure, communicate and socialize, and to go out and be seen!
Sunday (6/4): Today the Sun in Gemini comes into square with mystical Neptune in watery, foggy Pisces. While Jupiter’s trine with the Sun has us feeling confident and full of optimism, the influence of this hard aspect from Neptune can cause us to become delusional about our abilities. We are more prone to self-deception and delusional behavior under this influence as Neptune causes us to want to see the world through rose-colored glasses. Neptune’s square to the Sun also makes us more susceptible to lies and deception from others. Although things may feel very positive and loving in the moment, be wary of offers and invitations that feel too good to be true as things may go south very quickly once this transit passes.
Finally, Mars moves from Gemini into the watery, emotional sign of Cancer today. Water signs are contradictory to the fiery nature of Mars and tend to slow down our ambitions and impetus to act. Those of us who are ruled by Mars (Aries and Scorpio Rising and Sun signs) may feel our willpower start to fizzle out once this transit takes hold. On the positive side, Mars in Cancer invites us to take action from a place of intuitive and emotional understanding. We are more inclined to nurture and be nurtured under this influence. People become much more emotionally and physically supportive and feel driven to tend to their comfort zones at this time. This is an excellent time to start projects related to the home, family and real estate and to take the initiative to begin a new self-care routine.

There’s a lot going in the astrology this weekend with the Sun squaring the Lunar Nodes before moving into the playful and curious sign of Gemini on Saturday (Happy Birthday to all of my Gemini readers)! This comes shortly after Mercury’s conjunction to Uranus last week and subsequent trine to the North Node on Monday, which highlighted the energy of the North Node’s trine to Uranus, which comes exact in early June. With all of these triggers to the lunar nodes, we are in some karmic and fated times and we are certainly getting a good taste of what the nodal transit through Leo & Aquarius will have in store for us over the coming 18 months. Pay attention to insights, signs, synchronicities and omens this weekend as the messages are coming in loud and clear so long as we are open to receiving them.Read More
We have a calm and beautiful weekend ahead, beginning with a harmonious trine between Mars and Jupiter on Friday. This aspect amplifies our ambitions and allows us to more easily take initiative, especially when it comes to negotiations, communication and partnerships.Read More
The weekend starts off with a high-energy conjunction between retrograde Mercury and Uranus in Aries on Friday and ends with a super mellow Moon in Cancer on Sunday. Mercury’s conjunction to Uranus brings unexpected developments and changes that cause us to re-work our plans and think of new and innovative solutions to old problems requiring resolution.Read More
There’s a bit of tension building at the start of this weekend with Venus making its final square to Saturn in Sagittarius on Friday. We also have some karmic and synchronous nodal action coming our way so be sure to pay close attention to what comes up for you, as we are all going through a final reality check and purge of self-deception and escapist tendencies as the lunar nodes prepare to shift out of the Virgo/Pisces axis and enter into their 1.5-year-long transit through Leo & Aquarius in May.Read More
We have a big weekend ahead with a lot of planetary action playing out through some highly intense astrological transits. Between retrograde Venus squaring Saturn, the Sun in Aries squaring Pluto and Mercury stationing retrograde, this weekend is looking to be anything but boring.Read More
The Jupiter/Uranus/Pluto T-Square continues to be triggered by Mercury throughout the weekend causing a bit of friction and intensity leading us into the dynamic New Moon in Aries on Monday.Read More
There are no major planetary aspects this week on Friday & Saturday as we move into the Full Moon in practical, service-oriented Virgo on Sunday. Now is the time to take the dreams and visions for the future seeded at the time of the New Moon Eclipse in Pisces and ground them into practical reality through concrete plans and the creation of new, more realistic routines moving forward.Read More
The main event this weekend is Venus stationing to go retrograde at 13 degrees in fiery, self-focused Aries! Venus retrograde is a time to reassess what it is we place value on in our lives.
