Week Ahead – Monday, June 3rd through Sunday, June 9th

  • Posted on June 2, 2019 at 7:30 am
Happy Sunday everyone and Happy June! It’s hard to believe that 2019 is nearly half over already. This is a special week/year for me. Tomorrow (June 3rd) I celebrate my 50th birthday! It’s a bit mind-blowing, to say the least. It also marks the 15th year since my website went live. It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long. June will be bringing us a mix of contradictory energies. We have Mars in Cancer for the whole month, as well as Mercury, moving through the same sign from the 4th to the 26th. Neither of these planets feels overly comfortable in this sign, so we will need to find a way to deal with our emotional needs. We also have Venus moving through Gemini from the 4th of June until the 3rd of July, so we will need to get our heart and head on the same wavelength. Our emotions are wanting an easy month, but our brains are just too darn busy to slow down. June is also the month before our set of eclipses, so we can expect to see emotions coming to the surface. Let’s see what this week has in store then!
Our week begins with a quick paced Gemini New Moon, which is telling us to come out of the shadows and show the world your unique talents. It’s also best to avoid activities and people that try to slow us down today. New Moons are a time for new beginnings and in Gemini, our basic instinct is to communicate, think, and learn. We are motivated by a desire for variety and by an instinctive curiosity. The Moon in Gemini is light-hearted, breezy, and curious, but it can also be restless and fickle. Try to stay flexible!
Tuesday morning continues with the Gemini New moon energies, but by mid-afternoon, the Moon will go Void of Course shortly, and then move into the much calmer sign of Cancer. The Moon feels right at home in the sign of Cancer, as it rules the sign. This Moon position has much healing potential. Although insular by nature, our feelings run deep, making it an ideal time to get in touch with what motivates us. We want roots; we crave a sense of intimate connection that will. Quite often, when the Moon is in Cancer, we all become homebodies. We want to retreat to the place we feel most at home. This can bring out a sense of “homesickness” if we’re far from home, or estranged from others. It may be a time, than of reaching out to those that know us best.  Mercury joins the Moon in Cancer today as well, which means our focus turns to the quality of communication rather than quantity. We think, speak, and take in information on a deeper, more instinctive level now. This is a great time for tapping into our creative imagination, so take advantage of this and find creative ways to communicate, like through journaling, writing or any creative form you can use to express your feelings. Mercury will be in Cancer for longer than usual due to its upcoming retrograde.
Wednesday is a quiet one in the skies, but we still have that focus on hearth and home with the Cancer Moon. This will be with us until Thursday afternoon when the Moon goes Void of Course for a few hours. The Moon then moves into heart-opening Leo in the evening. This Moon brings a cheery vibe, making it easier to be lifted out of the doldrums. Its a good time for presentations, celebrations and social events. You might want to leave the next couple of days open, and let your spontaneous mischievous child inside lead the way.
Today, Mercury makes a harmonious sextile with Uranus. You may feel like taking the day off, starting late, having breakfast with a friend, or just let your eccentric side out for a bit. We may feel a bit mentally restless now and feel it is hard to slow our thoughts down, making it hard to focus and apply ourselves seriously where our responsibilities are concerned. However, this transit can open us up to new realizations and answers to old questions that seem to suddenly appear out of the blue. Mercury makes a challenging square to Chiron later in the day, further making our mental focus and perceptions feel a bit strained. This transit could bring your mental perspective to a kind of “healing crisis” that forces you to get a better grip on the ideas, communication and frame of mind that have been problematic for you.
Saturday continues with a sociable Leo Moon, A couple of hours before midnight, the Moon will very briefly go Void of Course and then move into practical Virgo. So our focus moves from getting out with friends for some fun, to wanting to get things organized around us as we move into Sunday. Venus moves into Gemini on Sunday, bringing flirty and somewhat scattered energies where we want to have a finger in every pie. This is also a good time for healing and bringing greater beauty into your life for the coming weeks. Sunday afternoon brings a bit of a challenging square between the Sun and Neptune, which tends to bring confusion along with it. It’s about forgetfulness absent-mindedness, things disappearing or being misplaced. Some of you may feel like disconnecting due to disappointments over wishful thinking. Our imagination is extremely active under this transit and may feel out of balance and out of control.
For some, energy levels may feel a bit low and some may experience disappointment or feel unusually discouraged by any obstacles that pop up now. Try to avoid wallowing in regret and guilt over what you feel are “inadequacies” at this time too. Focus on things that can help boost your self-confidence and work positively on the things we feel we are lacking now.
