Focus On You

Some weeks are more challenging than others and this may seem like one of those weeks.  While there are many planets wanting to talk and communicate, they are meeting with a planet that doesn’t.  It may seem like lower forms of communication are all around you (competitiveness, manipulation, paranoia).  At times like this, the best course of action is to focus on yourself.  What can you do?

Mars enters the sign of Taurus on June 9 at 12:35 am EST.  Mars in Taurus is looking to grow things, but on the terms of Mars.  Mars has a fixed focus and is only willing to look at those specific items.  While Mars in Taurus, it’s a great time to look at what you can control and focus on those things.  Keep in mind that not everything is going to go according to plan.  Even though this may be challenging with Mars in Taurus, try to act outside the box when it calls for it.

Sun in Gemini Squares Saturn in Pisces on June 9 at 6:36 am EST.  The Sun in Gemini wants to talk and Saturn in Pisces just wants to be left alone.  The Sun wants to play games and Saturn in Pisces wants to think about the possibilities.  It may be difficult to find common ground today.  The best course of action if you have to have a conversation is to discuss the possibilities.  Try not to commit to anything because it might not come out the way you expect.

Mars in Taurus Squares Pluto in Aquarius on June 11 at 9:21 am EST.  Mars in Taurus values tradition and control.  Pluto in Aquarius is looking to the future and how it can make the world a better place.  Of course, the downside to Pluto in Aquarius is that you can be looking at rebelliousness.  It may look like it’s better to start from scratch than to continue on this path.  Make sure to take a breather before you follow the path of the radical.

Mercury in Gemini Square Saturn in Pisces on June 12 at 6:47 am EST.  Mercury is continuing the conversation that the Sun had with Saturn earlier in the week.  Saturn is not happy about it.  Saturn just wants to be left alone.  If you run into someone who just wants to be left alone, let them be.  Find other ways to occupy your time.

The Sun in Gemini Conjuncts Mercury in Gemini on June 14 at 12:33 pm EST.  The Sun and Mercury are ready to gossip about what Saturn hasn’t been letting them do.  Saturn wants them to follow the rules, but the Sun and Mercury are thinking outside the box.  Now the Sun and Mercury have free reign to have the conversation that they were looking to have earlier in the week.

Open Up

It feels like summertime, even though summer doesn’t officially start for a few more weeks.  But every once in a while, we still get the reminder that it’s spring.  The planets are all lined up now in Gemini, with Mercury entering the sign this week.  It’s time to talk and open up to the possibilities.

Mercury enters the sign of Gemini on June 3 at 3:37 am EST.  Mercury is entering one of its happy places and is ready to have conversations and be curious about the happenings of life.  Watch out for the sense of duality that Gemini can present.  You may even have to do or speak things twice.  Oh, the horror!

Mercury in Gemini Conjuncts Jupiter in Gemini on June 4 at 6:23 am EST.  It’s time for some big conversations.  Jupiter wants to expand whatever it is that you’re thinking about.  What are you planning?  Do you have some ideas that are percolating?  Let these ideas rise to the surface and see how they make you feel.  There will be time later for these ideas to be put into action, but for now, just be curious.

The Sun in Gemini Conjuncts Venus in Gemini on June 4 at 11:32 am EST.  The Sun is looking to illuminate something in relationships and how you communicate in relationships.  Open up and be vulnerable.  I know it’s not the easiest thing to do.  We all have trouble in that moment of vulnerability, but if you can open up, your relationships, or even just one relationship could shift for the better.

Venus in Gemini Squares Saturn in Pisces on June 8 at 4:25 am EST.  Saturn is going to challenge you this week.  Saturn wants to sit back and dream, but Venus wants to go out, socialize, and just have some fun with other people.  What are you going to choose to do?  Ultimately, the choice is yours, but remember that this is a time to step outside of your comfort zone.  So take the action that you wouldn’t normally do.  Be vulnerable.

Network and Communicate

It’s Gemini season!  It’s time to share and communicate not only what’s been going in your life, but what direction do you want your life to go in.  Jupiter just moved yesterday into the sign of Gemini and over the next year all of the outer planets (Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) will also be shifting signs.  That means not only lots of big energy but big opportunities.  This week start to move with the energy that you’re being shifted into.

Mars in Aries Conjuncts Chiron in Aries on May 29 at 1:08 pm EST.  It’s time to focus on your wounds.  You may not want to.  You may want to focus on anything but your wounds.  It’s important to see what’s holding you back from stepping into the person you want to be.  There is something that is stopping you from taking action and it’s about to be revealed to you.  Everybody has wounds, it’s what you do with them that makes the difference.  If you feel called to, share your wounds with someone else.  There’s nothing like speaking them aloud to make them get a little smaller.  Just make sure it’s someone that you would trust with your secrets.

Mercury in Taurus Conjuncts Uranus in Taurus on May 31 at 1:54 am.  Mercury is the last of the players to speak to Uranus after the month of April.  Mercury is ready to have that conversation about what took place the last couple of months.  The topic could be anything, but something that happened in the month of April is ready to be discussed.  Keep that in mind as you try to plot and plan.  It will most likely be something unexpected.  It could be something that you thought you had already dealt with and there’s a new element to it or a new layer is being revealed.  Just try and go with the flow.  Spirit is guiding you.  Allow it to help you.

Free Yourself

Has all of this energy been getting you down and difficult for you to make progress?  Do you feel like you just keep running in a loop?  This week some of Taurus's energy is going to dissipate with Venus and Jupiter both entering the sign of Gemini.  It will be time to open up your mind and start communicating.

The Sun enters the sign of Gemini on May 20 at 8:59 am EST.  The Sun is going to shine a spotlight on your communication style, whether it be in person or through social media.  The Sun wants you to have a little bit of fun and be free.  There is nothing that can’t wait another moment or two.  It will be there still waiting for you tomorrow.  Gemini is known for its sense of duality and it comes in twos.  Be prepared.  You may want to do two things at once.  If you need to, talk it out with someone else.  Talking it is a great use of the Gemini nature.

Venus in Taurus Conjuncts Jupiter in Taurus on May 23 at 4:29 am EST.  Before both Venus and Jupiter enter the sign of Gemini, they meet up one final time.  Is there something in romance that you have been seeking, this could be a moment.  If not, it could be a time to do something that you love.  Make it big.  Make it grand.  Why do it small, when it could be something momentous?

Venus enters the sign of Gemini on May 23 at 4:30 pm EST.  Venus is getting ready to talk.  She wants to communicate about what she has learned about love.  Venus expects a dialogue to take place and wants to have some fun while the communication is taking place.  Venus may be looking to spill some secrets at the same time, so be prepared to have things be revealed.

Jupiter enters the sign of Gemini on May 25 at 7:15 pm EST.  Jupiter is leaving the sign of Taurus behind and won’t return for another 12 or so years.  Jupiter is ready to focus on communication and how it can be more open-minded.  Pay attention to how your communication changes once Jupiter takes its new place.  Does communication become bigger or does the style shift?  Either way, communication will be different.

Time for Family

It’s officially summer and with Mercury entering the sign of Cancer this week, it's time for family and some fertile ideas.

The week begins with Mercury in Gemini Squaring Neptune in Pisces on June 25 at 6:36 pm.  The confusion over your ideas remains.  It can be challenging to get clear, but the fog will dissipate later in the week.

Mars in Leo Squares Uranus in Taurus on June 26 at 5:23 am.  Mars in Leo wants to focus on you and Uranus in Taurus is still working on getting you to grow and it may even come in unexpected ways.  Which side wins?  It could be that you win in both ways, but you need to be open to ideas, which can be challenging when you have a fixed idea of what you want and how it should look.

Mercury enters the sign of Cancer on June 26 at 8:24 pm.  Your thoughts will be more about family, but Cancer is ruled by the Moon and the moon changes signs every 2 and a half days.  By the end of its time in Cancer, Mercury could have lots of ideas.  Then you just need to find the best way to implement them.

Neptune stations to go retrograde on June 30 at 5:07 am.  It’s time to look back over your spiritual path.  What adjustments do you need to make?  The time for reviewing and revising is now.

The Sun in Cancer conjuncts Mercury in Cancer on July 1 at 1:06 am.  The Sun is shining a spotlight on the Cancer areas of your life: family being a big part of it.  Enjoy some time with family and spend some time in the water.  Cancer loves the water.

The Simple Things

The Sun is getting ready to change signs, but it may just confuse matters a little bit before it does.  When your thinking becomes clear again it may be time to embrace the simple things.

The Sun in Gemini Squares Neptune in Pisces on June 18 at 11:54 pm.  Your focus could be cloudy.  Things just don’t seem to make sense.  Take time out from thinking and do something physical instead.

Cancer season begins on June 21 at 10:58 am.  It’s the official start of summer.  Lending a helping hand to your neighbor, spend some time at home, and be considerate to those around you.  Those are positive ways to spend Cancer season, but you may also feel needy, moody, or nostalgic.  It’s ok.  Cancer is ruled by the moon, so wait a couple of days and your mood can shift right around. 

With all of the dramatic energies of the past few years, it can be easy to look past the simple things.  This is a time to look at what you want.  Sometimes home and family are all that you need, whether it be in the traditional sense or in another form. This isn’t to say that the intense energies are over.  They’re still there, but this isn’t the week to focus on them.  This is a week to just be and appreciate what you have.

Revisiting the Past

What did your heart teach you last week?  Those lessons will come in handy as you experience some intense energies this week.  Two planets change signs and one planet stations to go retrograde.  Let’s get ready to revisit the past.

On March 23 Pluto entered the sign of Aquarius.  The energy began to shift and change and Pluto began to transform a new area of your life.  On May 1, Pluto was stationed to go retrograde and has been working its way back into Capricorn, which it will re-enter on June 11 at 5:47 am.  Pluto will have this dance between Capricorn and Aquarius well into 2024, November to be exact.  You may be longing for Pluto’s impact upon one area of your life to be over.  Pluto transits can be some of the longest and most challenging, but once it’s done your life will be forever different and it could be for the better.

Mercury enters the sign of Gemini on June 11 at 6;27 am.  Mercury loves being in the sign of Gemini.  It’s time to be curious and social.  Also, keep in mind that Gemini is the sign of duality and there are two sides to every story.   Things can also happen in sets of twos. June 11 is a big day and there’s one more major transit for the day when Venus in Leo Squares Jupiter in Taurus at 11;40 am.  Venus just wants to have a little fun, but Jupiter is ready to grow something.  Try to find a way to be in the moment on the 11th if possible.  With all of this big energy, it can be easy to get wound up and emotional.  Being aware of the energy is half the battle.

Mercury in Gemini will Square Saturn in Pisces on June 15 at 12:09 pm.  You may have some difficulty deciding if you want to be social or just be left alone to your own devices and stay home.  Whatever you decide, it’s ok.  Just go with the flow.

Saturn stations to go retrograde on June 17 at 1:27 pm.  Saturn is getting ready to revisit some of the issues that have been rising to the surface since Saturn entered Pisces on March 7.  Revisiting the past isn’t always easy, but there is a reason in this case.  There’s something that needs to be looked at differently.  You’re being given the opportunity.  Will you take it?

Take Time to Rest

After the intensity of the last few weeks, it’s time for a little bit of breathing room.  There are mainly lunar aspects in the sky and only one planetary aspect.

The Sun in Gemini Squares Saturn in Pisces on May 28 at 6:46 am.  The need to learn and be intellectual is at odds with your need to dream and drift.  If you can take time to try both.  No matter how much you may like to learn, there comes a time when you just need to take a break.  You may start to get a headache or an opportunity will come up to do something fun.  Take time to relax, you can always accomplish tasks another day.

Here in the United States, it’s Memorial Day weekend.  It’s a time to honor those that have died in service to our country and to remember those that we’ve lost.  So many of us have it as a long weekend and take it as an opportunity to get one more project done.  Take some time to reflect on where you’ve come from.  Sometimes it's so easy just to do more and more and you can forget to rest.  Rest is so important and can even give you more energy to do the things you love.  Take some time for yourself this week and allow yourself to dream and reflect.  Goals can be accomplished another day.

Talk It Out

Things in the sky are about to get a little bit chatty as the Sun changes signs this week.  The Sun entered the sign of Gemini on May 21 at 3:09 am.  Do you notice the difference?

Gemini is the sign of duality.  You may notice that things happen in twos.  It is also a sign that not only like to talk it out but to learn something new.  This can be a great month to take a new class or meet up with friends.
 
Mars in Leo Squares Jupiter in Taurus, which just changed signs last week, on May 23 at 1:13 am.  Mars in Leo is ready to go.  Maybe do something that is for them and only them, but Taurus isn’t ready yet.  Taurus doesn’t want to make changes and wants things to remain the same, but you’re meant to grow something new with Jupiter being in Taurus, so don’t say no quite yet.  Think about it.  Weigh the pros and cons.  You may just decide to give it a try.
 
On May 24 at 7:39 pm, Venus in Cancer Squares Chiron in Aries.  Venus is getting in touch with her maternal side, while Chiron is ready to be a warrior and maybe even go to battle.  Who will win?  It’s all up to you.
 
Be careful this week of people trying to bring you into their dramas.  It could be a good week to set boundaries or even say that you need time to think about something and walk away.  Take time to think it over and deal with it at another time.  Sometimes decisions are better made when you aren’t emotional or have a little bit more perspective.  You may need another opinion.  Allow yourself to talk it out with someone else, but remember you don’t have to do what they may suggest.

The Energy Shifts

This week another planet goes retrograde and there’s another Eclipse. You will feel the energy shift and it’s trying to send you in a new direction.  What you do with the shift and the direction it sends you is up to you.

Pluto stations to go retrograde in the sign of Aquarius on May 1 at 1:09 pm.  Pluto will be retrograde until October 10 and will retrograde back into the sign of Capricorn in June.  It’s going to be time to re-examine the darkness of Pluto.  Are there still shadows that you need to look at.  You have a couple of opportunities to look at what you’ve been working on since 2008.  Look at the world since 2008, so much has changed.  Has it changed for the better?  Depends on how you look at it, but I think most would agree that the dark side of people has been exposed.  There’s no going back and hiding under a rock, but there is the option to do the work and see if the world can be a little bit better.  The work is never easy, but it’s the only way to truly grow as a person and as a community.  Which path do you want to take?

The Sun in Taurus conjuncts Mercury in Taurus on May 1 at 7:28 pm.  What do you value?  The sun and Mercury are shining a light on those things that you value.  Is what you value, how you spend the majority of your time?  If it isn’t, do you need to make some changes to either your values or how you spend your time?  The choice is yours.

Venus in Gemini will square Neptune in Pisces on May 4 at 1:40 pm.  Venus is looking to have a conversation about your spiritual side.  Are you looking to engage in that conversation or are you looking to avoid it altogether?

The Lunar Full Moon Eclipse in Taurus and Scorpio is on May 5 at 1:34 pm.  This is the last eclipse in the Taurus-Scorpio access and then the nodal access will shift this summer.  This is the end point for something that began about 18 months ago.  A chapter is ending.  How you respond to the end of this chapter is up to you.  The end could be big or it could be small, it depends on you.  Have you done the work or have you been insisting that nothing is wrong? 

Remember to take some time for yourself this week.  Do something fun or relaxing.  When the energy shifts are big it can be challenging to get a good night’s rest.  Do your best and remember to be kind.  Everyone else is experiencing the same energy as you, but in maybe a slightly different way.  The world could use a little more kindness.
