Uranus is at 5º Taurus. Hows the weather where you are?
It seems most of the mid-west is under water. Last week I listened to an interview with a man in Missouri who said he has not been able to see where he parked his car since March 17, 2019. That is a LOT of water and a long time not to see your car!
Here in North Carolina, we had rain on a regular weekly rotation for most of the spring. Then there were almost four weeks with little more than a sprinkle. All that changed last Wednesday and Thursday when the rain moved in. My home town of Hickory has declared a state of emergency due to roads collapsing and bridges washing out. I will continue this thought later this week in a separate post dedicated to Uranus in Taurus. The week ahead looks great until Friday. On this day Mars will be aspecting three other planets. I’ll get to this more in a bit.
Mercury entered Cancer last Tuesday, June 4, 2019. He has already traveled 8 degrees in 5 days. He travels fast and considered a planetary scribe that records and documents our story.
Perhaps you are aware of the benefits of journaling. Many people journaling as a reflective tool to help them take a closer look at themselves and gain a deeper understanding of their psyche. When Mercury is in Cancer, he helps us connect our soul’s path to our actions and choices. Time to examine your own life choices?
Mercury will transit Cancer until June 28 when he moves into Leo. He will station and turn retrograde a few days later and return to Cancer on July 20. This will provide us with about 11 days to revisit and tie up any loose ends we might have remaining from his current transit of Cancer.
Today, if you are feeling a bit drained, you might attribute this to the Sun squaring Neptune. Our focus is probably more on spiritual needs than on our plans or goals. The best use of this energy might be to find ways to meld imagination and our spiritual side into our daily lives. All you need to do is step away from what society and history have dictated until now. Easier said than done for many, especially now with the traditional, patriarchal side of society trying so hard to maintain its control.
Monday, we have the only Sun-Jupiter opposition for this year. This aspect holds the possibility for happiness and success. This is the best time for us to receive rewards for any good deeds and stick up for those less successful. It will also be important that we not lose sight of reality and let our heads get too high in the clouds of Neptune’s illusion.
The Sun-Jupiter opposition is also part of the Sun-Jupiter-Neptune T-square that perfects on Monday. This is all about learning and communicating about any subject. This also brings us a great deal of intuitive energy that can creatively assist our mental focus and communications.
Tuesday you might discover some intuitive flashes or insights. This will be thanks to Mars quintile Uranus. The areas we might feel this energy or get the most insight into will be home and family, security, and the healing of emotions. Face it. We all have childhood wounds. Some of us are working hard to clear them and some of us are doing all we can to sweep them under a rug or hidden in a closet because they are too painful to face. Problem is, we will never reach our full potential until we clear this karma.
A friend of mine is writing a new book that details the four states we go through in order to get to the life we are meant to live. These stages are projection and blame, expression, integration and, silence and oneness. This corresponds to Dr. David Hawkins scale of consciousness except she is giving more details about how to achieve the higher levels of silence and oneness. Of course, I will let you know when this is published!
Wednesday sees the peak of a hard rectangle pattern that began on 6/7/2019. The rectangle involves Venus, Mars, Ceres, Saturn, and the lunar nodes. We could see some issues with regard to our soul’s purpose. Time to look deeper at what is possible rather than the way we have always done things. The areas to consider are relationships, creativity, money, leadership, sexuality, assertiveness, and business. Don’t be concerned about any glitches that pop up along these lines. Just make adjustments are needed.
Thursday, Venus will sextile Chiron. Venus, as we know, is about relationships and money. Chiron is the wounded healer. Use this energy to examine any healing that might be needed in your relationships or in your finances. Time to pay off our debt.
The Sun will be inconjunct Pluto. This aspect will assist our learning, writing, and communications so make use of this write something profound.
Now we come to Friday and Mars aspecting three slower planets. First up is a trine with Neptune. Next is Mars opposite Saturn, and last is Mars inconjunct Jupiter.
Mars is going to energize all three of these planets. We can expect to see an increase in our ability to manifest and draw to us all that we need. Passing our vision on to others and the public in general will easier.
This aspect will help lead us toward the power of the Summer Solstice and increase our ability to awaken spiritually. Remember that when I say ‘spiritual’ I am not talking about any sort of religion. I am talking about a relationship with Source and the embodiment of love.
Saturday Mercury quintiles Uranus. This may result in more intuitive flashes or some really magnificent thinking. This energy is quite magical so go out and sprinkle your fairy dust and share your magic with the world. Don’t hide your light under a bushel.
I want to close today with my usual….be kind and smile to all you meet……and a video of David Byrne singing David Bowie’s song Heroes, backed by a choir of strangers. Maybe it is because I have loved David Byrne for nearly 40 years but this brought a tear to my eye. I hope you listen and enjoy it too.
Next week begins with a Full Moon so get ready to shine! And if the skies clear this week, grab the binoculars and take a look at Jupiter which will be about as close to the Earth as it gets this month. You might even be able to see some of his Moons.
