Sunday, June 9. The trine between Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces will be exact this week on June 11. Today, the Moon in Cancer forms a Grand Water Trine with these two other planets. Here, we enter the important realm of the heart. It is important to make room for the wisdom that comes from our souls. A trine represents an easeful connection. We can hope that the support of the trine will help us when we encounter the vulnerability that also comes up when we touch on the whole of our hearts—the hurts as well as the hopes. The Cancer Moon supports the nurturance of our hearths. Comfort brings trust, which can bring new openings.
Monday, June 10. Yesterday, the Cancer Moon touched on the supportive trine between Saturn and Neptune. Today, the Moon triggers the more stressful square between Pluto and Uranus. The reaction may be to become defensive or vigilant to protect someone or something very dear to you. Emotional triggers are teachers, helping us develop more empathy not only for others but for ourselves too. Mercury trines Chiron—look for messages of healing and compassion. As the Moon contacts Mercury in the afternoon, you may be able to resolve emotional triggers through communicating feelings. Notice your thought patterns around dealing with stress.
Tuesday, June 11. Most of today, until right before midnight, the Moon is void-of-course in Cancer. Yesterday was probably stressful due to having to be on top of lots of things coming at you. Today, the stress may be due to a lack of energy, or what happens when you have too much time on your hands. This is a good day to rest in the soothing waters of our souls. Deep currents are flowing through those places. Even though it can be scary, the insight we gain from honest self-appraisal gives great power. The trine between Saturn and Neptune is exact today. Through Neptune, we reach for expansion of belief and faith. Through Saturn we find the practices, the work, and the relationships that foster a grounded approach to that expansion.
June 12—Crescent Moon: Beginning. The last few days were a chance to expand into feelings. There were moments of ecstasy, connection, and joy. There were also moments of doubt, fear, and vigilance. All of this belongs to the realm of Water. With the Moon now entering the Crescent phase in the dynamic sign of Leo, we begin to support our intentions for the month through action influenced by everything we felt the last four days. At this stage of the cycle, we don’t have to see the big picture, we just need to take the next steps. What step will you take towards integration? What is your next alchemical work?
Thursday, June 13. We clear out the cobwebs. Embrace possibility. When you lose yourself in a creative endeavor, you forget to worry if others are appreciating you enough. Everyone gets to add their sparkle to this day. Appreciate everyone’s unique contribution.
Friday, June 14. Virgo has the magic potion to turn Gemini into a productive member of society. But do we really want that? Both signs are inventive, but Virgo wants the effort to go towards what serves the bigger picture. This is a great exploration to have in mind today. What really serves your intentions, your communities, your work? The answer may not be simple but should involve real structure as well as visions of a better world. Go for it.
Saturday, June 15. You might be obsessing over a puzzling situation in your life. The way out may not be along any familiar pathways. Perhaps these lines from Rumi will help us find a different way,
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make any sense.
