Week Ahead – Monday, June 17th through Sunday, June 23rd

  • Posted on June 16, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone, and Happy Father’s Day to all of you Dads out there! It’s been a wet week here in the UK but hopefully, we will see some sun with the coming week. Today has a generous vibe to it, but we do need to take care because there is a Jupiter/Neptune transit that can make it hard to tell the difference between illusion and reality. other than that, it’s a great day for some relaxed fun and sharing with those you are close to. Let’s see what this week has in store for us.


Our morning begins with a Void of Course Moon and this is taking place with the Moon Void of Course for the most part. So, we have a bit of Sagittarius’ energy pushing us to align ourselves with a higher purpose, and Capricorn wants to bring some structure and planning into our lives. This Moon is also closely aligned to the Galactic Center or center of the Milky Way. Adding to this are two upcoming oppositions that will be taking place, one between Mercury and Saturn, and one between Mars and Pluto. What this means is that we will need to take action but we don’t want to force things or try to make situations move forward too fast.


Our day starts off with an illuminating transit between Saturn and Neptune that makes it feel as if things are flowing more easily where solutions to issues seem to appear all by themselves. We also become more receptive to how others think and feel, understanding their need and wanting to find ways to help them. So, it’s time to let go of imagining what is not possible and focus on what is. It’s also a good transit for pursuing mystical and spiritual matters, which is where our thoughts seem to drift at this time. We also have a conjunction between Mercury and Mars today, which is known as a time for quick wit and strong mental impulses. We can use this to be productive today and put some plans into action.


Today is a good day to lay low, not force things, and avoid impatient and angry people due to those 2 oppositions I mentioned for Monday. Mercury will be opposing Pluto, which means the chance of something we say triggering a hostile reaction is much greater. It’s a transit known for its power struggles and giving or receiving the third degree. Try not to become obsessive about small details for now. The other opposition takes place between Mars and Pluto, an intense energy that also ramps up obsessive-compulsive behaviour and has tempers flaring up. We can use these tow energies to examine what triggers us and why so that we can make adjustments. The Moon will go Void of Course just after Noon.


Thursday brings in a more friendly atmosphere as the Moon shifts into Aquarius in the early morning hours. Attraction to all that is new and unusual, and an instinctive need for improvement, characterize the Moon in Aquarius. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional, and interactions are more impersonal than personal, under this influence. This is a time that promotes social gatherings, dealing with group ideals and goals for the future, brainstorming, new ideas, and progressive changes. It favours social networking via the net or experimenting with other technologies that keep you connected. It’s time for embracing the new, the futuristic and innovative.


Today is our Summer Solstice and the Sun moves into Cancer. The energies are a bit complicated for this year’s Solstice. We are still under the influence of the two challenges between Mercury/Mars and Saturn/Pluto. So we have this “hurry up and wait” energy in one corner, and in the other corner, we have some of the nicer planets, Neptune, Venus, and Jupiter, mingling in a complicated T-Square aspect. So, we have some opportunities to open up to new relationships or enhance our existing ones. Neptune, however, wants us to look for the spiritual side of people, as well as know the difference between illusion and fantasy. This energy will be with us until the Autumn Equinox. Lastly, we have Neptune going Retrograde today in Pisces. For up to a week before and a week after this transit, we may feel a stronger concentration of Neptune energy around us. Vivid dreams, foggy brains, acute imagination, and flowing intuition are all possible now. We tend to feel unusually sensitive as well the people and situations going on around us. It’s not unusual as well to see a turning point come about in situations that have been unfolding for several months.


Saturday afternoon brings in a much calmer energy as the Moon moves into Pisces. So this is a good day for visiting watery places, meditating, or sitting back and watching a good movie. Mercury is moving into its shadow now, getting ready for its upcoming Retrograde cycle that will run from July 7th to the 31st. This means we will need to start paying attention to our communication, transportation, communication equipment and be flexible for adjusting our schedules.

Sunday brings us an opposition between Venus and Jupiter, and it’s a transit that we need to be cautious with because our desires for pleasure are at a high. This means a rise in sexual desire as well as in desires for all things that bring us pleasure. And while there isn’t anything wrong with a bit of indulgence, this transit tends to make us go a bit overboard; overblown expectations in relationships, the use of seduction to gain something that really may not be in our best interest, overindulging in foods and drink that may not be good for us, and impulsive spending are all things to watch out for now. Enjoy it, but don’t go overboard!
