Week Ahead – Monday, June 4th through Sunday, June 10th

Happy Sunday everyone! I celebrate my birthday today and every year I get to this point and look back at how much things have changed. It can be liberating, scary, a bit sad and joyous all at once. Today we have a nice Aquarius Moon energy that makes for happy emotional social connections, so try to get out and socialize a bit if you can. Now, let’s see what this first full week of June has in store for us.


Monday starts off with an early morning Void of Course Moon and this will be with us for the whole day/night and into tomorrow mid-morning. When the Moon is Void of Course we can feel emotionally disconnected, so the day is best used for tending to practical tasks or tapping into and tuning in to our spiritual side. Tuesday sees the Moon moving into Pisces just before Noon. At this time our life can take on a kind of mystical quality at the emotional and instinctive levels. Dreams and illusions, forgiveness, and understanding human frailties: these things arouse deep feelings for us. On a negative side, it can be harder to deal with the harsher aspects of reality during these lunar days. We may escape with one more drink, or “check out” in front of the television. It’s easy to coast through the day when you’re dreamy or “lost.” It helps to have some creative focus, in order not to flounder in the sign of the Fishes. It’s an active day today because we have the Sun in a conjunction with Mercury, so we ten to have a lot to say and talk about. Communication of all kinds is highlighted today. We also have an opposition between Venus and Pluto, so we may experience challenges or feelings of great intensity now. Now is the time to dive deep into those personal issues that are associated to our values, finances, resources and relationships. However, doing so means that you will have to delve beneath the surface of those issues in order to discover any patterns that you may not have noticed before. Such patterns can be an indication that we need to acknowledge and come to grips with our shadow shelves such as obsessions, hidden agendas and our most secret desires. This give us a chance to learn how we project our shadow selves onto other people via the way we interact, our expectations, fears and hopes.


Wednesday is another active day and we may find our sleep disrupted or have disjointed dreams due to a square between Mercury and dream planet Neptune. Under this transit, our mental focus can feel a bit clouded, confused or lethargic. Our mind struggles with trying to tackle and understand the limitless expanse of the Universe we live in along with what is formless and shifting. We can experience some disillusionment or disappointment in our observations or communication with others.  This is an important time, however, to break through old and rigid expectations that may be blocking our ability to see the bigger picture. Try to focus on one task at a time today, don’t try to plan too far ahead and you should be fine.


Thursday begins with a morning Void of Course Moon, which will be with us for most of the day and evening. So we will have that feeling of emotional disconnectedness. In the late evening the Moon will move into fiery Aries, so the next two days will be good for getting our bodies moving. Some may actually feel this shift more than others. An Aries Moon tends to bring conflict more than most times, with emotional tensions growing, people becoming short-tempered and impulsive. Some may show a readiness and fearlessness to act in an extreme situation. Even the sweetest tempered person can become a bit mean under this moon. However, it becomes easier to shake old problem and the weight of tiresome responsibility. We want to free ourselves from everything that bothers us and makes our lives feel uneasy. We also have a tricky challenge between the Sun and Neptune today, which has the tendency to take those wistful ideas and wishful thinking, and make them seem more realistic than they actually are. What tends to happen then is that we become disillusioned and prone to disappointment. Some may want a fantasy to come true so badly that they disconnect themselves from any actual obstacles that get in the way. Really we need to be paying attention to those obstacles because they are needed and serve a purpose for our own self growth.


Friday brings a conjunction between Mars and the South Lunar Node. This can be a somewhat prickly and impatient transit, as well as active and energetic. Where the South Node falls in your natal chart can determine the area where that conflict may lie. We can sometimes feel this transits influence 2 weeks before and two weeks after its movement.

Remember, the South Node is where we release stuff, move away from what may be holding us back, and letting go of the old. And since we are working with Mars energy, whatever it is that we are embracing or releasing will most likely have to do with aggression, anger, forcefulness, or assertiveness. So it’s important to find some common ground that will allow us to rebalance ourselves.


Saturday is a quiet one for us but we still have that Aries energy in play, so get out and be active. The Moon goes Void of Course in the early evening. As we rise on Sunday morning the Moon will be moving into earthy Taurus, where we feel the tension of the past few days start to drop away. People tend to become calmer and peaceful. We feel secure and stable. We are motivated by the desire for serenity, security, peace, and comfort. The Moon is at her most sensual and constant in Taurus. Our basic impulses are to relax, resist change, and “stop to smell the roses”. So make sure you take some relaxing time out and look at the beauty the world has to offer on a simpler level.
