As the world turns…..another Full Moon is almost upon us. And this one is going to be a tough one so stay calm and don’t forget to breathe.
The week opens with Saturn still in opposition to the Sun, Mars and Mercury. Structures at odds with the ego, communications and action. Oh my! This energy has been lingering, weaving in and out now for a couple of weeks. Feelings have been in hypersensitive mode lately. I’ve noticed this play out in both positive and negative ways. Feelings have gotten hurt and things have gone whacko because communications have fouled. While this too will pass, I have to tell you difficult aspects are going to seem like they are ganging up on us off and on for a while. Be aware, relax into it all and don’t forget to find some pleasure and joy where ever you can.
Pluto and Uranus are still square but moving away from that all the time. The pressure they can cause is easing is some ways and just getting started in others. Pluto is in easy aspect to Neptune. I hope this means some of the rain and flooding issues in the country will be waning.
On the flip side, Neptune is square the Sun, Mars and Mercury today and for much of the week. Don’t be surprised if you feel a bit distracted, low on energy, and just not wanting to tackle those everyday chores you have waiting. Most of them can wait anyway, so let them. Go out and enjoy a nap under a shady tree, watch a movie or read a book. This way you will avoid the negative energy of others and be less likely to get your feelings hurt.
This square energy is going to make the whole week a touchy one. Should you notice people being more irritated and annoying than usual, Neptune square these three planets is most likely the offender. This will also cause the retrograde Mercury to be even more difficult for many. As always, it depends on where this aspect triggers your own birth chart.
Now add Gemini to the mix and we have a real tricky situation. Remember the Sun is in Gemini? So Mercury and Mars. That is a lot of Gemini influence on our personal planets. People that love practical jokes might be even more prone to play tricks under this energy. Misunderstandings and miscommunications could be at an all time high this week. Be on your toes. If something someone says or does hit you the wrong way, step back, re-read this post, take another look and see if you are a victim of a communications foul up. Once this transit is over, things will be more clear.
Speaking of Mercury retrograde, don’t forget to read, re-read and read again any contracts you might need to sign. If you began a contractual arrangement before the retrograde, all the better. I am not one of those that says you have to halt all transactions during retrograde. Things happen. We have to do business. We have to live life no matter what is going on. When Mercury is traveling backwards as he is now, we simply need to be more diligent and pay closer attention. That is all.
Tuesday the Moon will be full in Sagittarius. This a mental moon. Gemini represents the lower mind and Sagittarius represents the higher mind. The Sun asks us to think logically while the Moon asks us to go inward and be more intuitive. Gemini is happy with what is. Sagittarius wants us to find a deeper meaning. Failure to find balance in these two things, will often bring regret.
The Full Moon represents our emotions, attitude, and connection. The Moon shines on the conflict between our two minds. This time the Moon is squaring Neptune and adds a fly to the ointment. The Full Moon wants the seeds, mental and otherwise, that we planted during the last New Moon, to bust open and sprout. Neptune has other ideas. He is going to add some road blocks (like we need any more with Mercury retrograde). He is going to make things all fuzzy and dreamy. Be alert to misinformation.
All in all, this is a great time to open to the possibilities life brings your way. Hopefully we have been clearing out what no longer serves and have room to full advantage of new things as they come along. This is what the Full Moon invites us to do. This Full Moon is about communnication, attitude, and our sense of adventure. Something has been building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the next two weeks, we will discover what this means for us. For now, we can’t sit on our feelings. We need to express them. Just be aware of possible blocks from Neptune.
Friday, June 5, 2015, Venus leave Cancer for a tour of Leo. This transit will be a long and interesting. In July our lovely Venus moves into Virgo for a whole week and then turns retrograde, heading back into Leo where she will stay through the first week of October.
Venus in Leo loves attention. If anyone you know seems to be requiring more attention than usual over the next few months, it could be due to this extra-long transit. I have not looked ahead for any interesting aspects with Venus as yet but I am sure there are going to be some in our future. I will cover this more in the weeks to come. For now, lets just say that Leo pride and Venus passion will be name of the game.
My favorite part of this Venus transit its soft heart and generosity. This transit is also full of fun. I am sure with some of the future Saturn aspects, we might be in need of this extra-long transit. Plus you could not ask for better energy for summertime fun, now can you?
Lastly, we are nearing the end of Mercury’s retrograde for now. He turns direct on June 11. Please note that the storm period will last through the 26th of June. This is a particularly long storm I know. For those that don’t know or may have forgotten, the storm period it the time between a planet begins to slow down to station and turn retrograde or turns direct and gets back to full speed. The storm period is not as strong as a retrograde period but still have some of the same effects on us. This is why many astrologers include storm period information for us.
Speaking of FUN……I’m headed out with a friend to hear some music. What ever it is you are doing, I wish you good times, good friends and lots of laughs. Till next week, remember to lay low and watch out for those testy emotions and miscommunications.
