Astrology Transits September 2022 – Harvest Time

The true harvest of my life is intangible – a little star dust caught, a portion of the rainbow I have clutched.Henry David Thoreau

September always makes me think of harvesting. I think of sweet-smelling hay bales curing in the Sun and of harvesting all of the fruits, vegetables and grains that flourished during the summer. September is also time to go back to school and back to work after summer vacations. This is right in tune with the Virgo energy. Virgo is an Earth sign that wants to be of service by using its considerable intellect to analyze and make things better and more nearly perfect.

With the Sun in Virgo until September 22 and Venus in Virgo until September 29, its time to spend some time analyzing your failures, near misses and successes. As the season changes, its helpful for each of us to set a new game plan for navigating the rest of the calendar year. If you are a Virgo Sun sign, it is doubly important to do so. We really do reap what we sow and Virgo can help us perfect our priorities and game plan. Happy Harvest!


September 1:  Mars Sextile Jupiter at 6 Degrees Gemini/Aries. Mars sextile Jupiter gifts you with abundant energy (Mars), confidence and enthusiasm (Jupiter) to get things done and to achieve your goals. Enjoy!


September 2: Venus Quincunx Pluto at 27 Degrees Leo/Capricorn; Mercury Opposition Jupiter at 6 Degrees Libra/Aries. When Venus and Pluto interact with each other, the energy becomes intense and dicey. Don’t push others right now as everyone is especially sensitive to perceptions of control. Mercury opposition Jupiter brings a sense of over confidence as to who is really right or who is really wrong. Tread carefully.


September 5:  Venus Enters Virgo. Venus Sesquiquadrate Chiron at 0 Degrees Virgo/15 Degrees Aries. Venus in Virgo is very active this month as it aspects many of the other transiting planets. Venus has high discernment ability when in Virgo. Venus sesquiquadrate Chiron urges you to use this discernment to let go of painful relationships and to gravitate toward relationships that are supportive and fulfilling.


September 9:  Venus Quincunx Jupiter at 5 Degrees Virgo/Aries. Venus quincunx Jupiter brings the need for an adjustment (quincunx aspect) with regard to your heart’s desire (Venus). Spend some time asking yourself what you really want in life and then commit to making the adjustments needed to manifest that desire.


September 9: Mercury Turns Stationary Retrograde at 8 Degrees Libra. Mercury turns retrograde in Libra, then transits backward into Virgo on September 23. It ends its retrograde walkabout on October 2 at 24 degrees Virgo. Use this strong Mercury retrograde energy to sort out your life and to declutter your surroundings and brain. Get rid of what you don’t need. Ask yourself: “Do I really need two versions of the same book or other unused item? Have I even used the item in the last six months?”


September 10: Full Moon at 17-18 Degrees Pisces. The Full Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune is an extremely sensitive, perceptive and emotional Moon. Be kind to yourself, as you may feel insecure and even a little bit “lost.” Those feelings can best be mitigated and become more useful by using the Pisces Full Moon to tune into your creative and spiritual side. Who knows, you could even produce a musical or artistic masterpiece under this imaginative Moon. Its best to avoid escapism habits such as drinking too much alcohol or taking mind-altering drugs under a Pisces Full Moon. Under this Moon, you can tune into other realms without the need for such artificial escapism tools.



September 11: Sun Trine Uranus at 18 Degrees Virgo/Pisces. The Sun trine Uranus is exciting, stimulating and inventive. Use this electrifying energy to try something new, invent something amazing or to break out of non-productive habits and situations.


September 12: Sun Quincunx Saturn at 19 Degrees Virgo/Aquarius. The Sun quincunx Saturn brings grounding to yesterday’s Sun trine Uranus. The two aspects together are superb for tackling seeming obstacles and for making hard decisions.


September 16:  Venus Square Mars at 14 Degrees Virgo/Gemini. Sun Opposition Neptune at 24 Degrees Virgo/Pisces. Venus square Mars is a mixed blessing for romantic relationships. It intensifies both physical attraction and ego issues around any conflicts in the relationship. Venus wants everything to be “nice” and easy, while Mars amplifies your ego needs and self-assertion. If you are looking for love, this transit may bring you an attractive potential partner, but your ability to discriminate between a healthy or unhealthy relationship is lacking. Be careful when meeting potential, new partners.


September 18-19: Mercury Opposition Jupiter at 4 Degrees Libra/Aries. Mercury Sesquiquadrate Uranus at 3 Degrees Libra/18 Degrees Taurus. Mercury opposition Jupiter is helpful for contract negotiations, planning sessions and brainstorming ideas. However, be careful that all points are clear as you do so. Mercury is retrograde and Jupiter can make you overly optimistic. Pay attention to details and go over pertinent points carefully. It would also be wise to sleep on any potential decisions before committing yourself. Mercury in a challenging aspect to Uranus can push you to make snap decisions that you will later regret.


September 20: Venus Trine Uranus at 18 Degrees Virgo/Taurus. Venus Quincunx Saturn at 19 Degrees Virgo/Aquarius. You can feel a sense of boredom, the desire for something new and exciting and the urge to free yourself from restraints and responsibilities when Venus is trine Uranus. Venus quincunx Saturn helps to keep you grounded. The quincunx aspect calls for an adjustment (quincunx) between your thirst for the untried (Uranus) and the need for restraint (Saturn).


September 22:  Sun Enters Libra at the Fall Equinox at 9:03 pm Eastern Time. Our focus shifts to issues of partnership, balance, equilibrium and fairness when the Sun transits Libra until October 22.


September 24: Venus Opposition Neptune at 23 Degrees Virgo/Pisces. Your ideals and yearnings are amplified when Venus is opposition Neptune, but your judgment may be clouded. Be careful with starting new romantic or business relationships under this transit. Similarly, your expectations of an ongoing relationship may be unrealistic. Get in touch with your inner landscape to get the most from this Venus Opposition Neptune aspect.


September 25: New Moon at 2-3 Degrees Libra Opposition Jupiter in Aries. The Libra New Moon opposition Jupiter is a “feel good” Moon that brings out your generous, benevolent (Jupiter) feelings. However, Jupiter in Aries, adds a bit of independent, freedom-oriented tinge to the positive energy. You may be questioning certain aspects of your closest relationships; especially with regard to whether the balance of power and the distribution of duties are fair and equitable (Libra). The New Moon in Libra is a good time to address any such issues.



September 26: Venus Conjunct Mercury Trine Pluto at 26 Degrees Virgo/Capricorn. All of your emotions are felt more intensely when Venus is trine Pluto. Deep feelings and deep conversations may surface with Retrograde Mercury also trine Pluto. Mercury trine Pluto is excellent for going within to get in touch with your deepest desires and inclinations. This aspect is an excellent time to explore such matters with your therapist, spiritual counselor or astrologer.


September 26: Sun Opposition Jupiter at 3 Degrees Libra/Aries. Optimistic, cheerful vibes dance all around you under this Sun opposition Jupiter aspect. The only cautions are to be wary of over extending yourself and/or giving into a tendency to be self-righteous and overbearing.


September 27: Mercury Trine Pluto at 26 Degrees Virgo/Capricorn. Mercury trine Pluto in the earth signs of Virgo and Capricorn is beneficial for looking within and for self-understanding. Retrograde Mercury makes this process especially productive. Conversations with others under Mercury trine Pluto tend to be serious deep and probing.


September 29:  Venus Enters Libra. Venus had some deep, possibly life-changing interactions with Pluto while in Virgo. Venus in Libra lightens the mood considerably. Venus rules Libra, so it feels right at home here. Venus in Libra turns our attention to relationships, fairness, compromise and beauty. Enjoy this beautiful energy until October 23, 2022.


October 3:  Mercury Turns Direct at 24 Degrees Virgo.

Astrology Transits August 2022 – Time to Shine

When people begin to ignore human dignity, it will not be long before they begin to ignore human rights.Gilbert K. Chesterton

The New Moon in Leo on July 28 certainly sets the stage for ushering in the Leonine energy. It’s time to express your personal power, dignity and authentic style. Leo has the quality of royalty and leadership. Jupiter trine the Leo New Moon expands those qualities. Leo is about self-expression and individuality, while Jupiter rules the truth. Ask yourself: “What is the authentic truth about myself and who I am. Am I expressing that truth in my dealings with others?”

Jupiter turns retrograde at this time also.  Set your intentions regarding your truth and when Jupiter resumes forward motion on November 25, you can confidently move forward in your own genuine, authentic, true-to-self way.

It’s a busy month chock full of spiritual insights and healing, but also full of challenging, chaotic energy.

August 1:  Mars Conjunct Uranus and North Node at 18 Degrees Taurus, Opposition South Node at 18 Degrees Scorpio, Square Saturn at 22 Degrees Aquarius.  WOW! Mars conjunct Uranus is the classic aspect of “shaking things up.” Mars is a hot, fiery energy and Uranus rules sudden events. Saturn can bring temperature extremes. Together they can trigger all kinds of sudden (Uranus) events of nature – earthquakes, hurricanes, high winds, tornados and extreme temperatures. In addition, watch for major upsets and jaw-dropping revelations in the mundane sphere. That is, political, economic and financial matters. Stay calm, Mars moves quickly so the craziness will gradually ease as the month progresses.

August 2: Mercury Quincunx Pluto at 25 Degrees Leo/Pisces. Mercury Quincunx Pluto is one of those “rubber-hits-the-road” aspects where you are nudged to face previously hidden truths about your situation. Pluto compels you to dig deep, while Mercury inspires thought. The quincunx aspect requires adjustment. Though doing so can be unpleasant, it will help you make an important decision(s).

August 2:  Venus Sextile Mars and Uranus at 18-19 Degrees Cancer/Taurus. What is your passion?  The floodgates of creativity are opened under Venus sextile Uranus. The energy and daring to pursue your heart’s desire are unleased under Venus sextile Mars. An exciting person or project could materialize under this stimulating, energetic and creative aspect.

August 4:  Mercury Enters Virgo. Mercury in Virgo is a superb time to organize your office, home or priorities. On August 5, Venus Quincunx Saturn at 22 Degrees Cancer/Aquarius helps you reassess your relationships and loyalties. Mercury sesiquiquadrate Chiron stimulates your memories and dreams. Use Chiron’s healing energy to forgive and forget past slights or upsets.

August 7: Mars Square Saturn at 22 Degrees Taurus/Aquarius and Venus Trine Neptune at 25 Degrees Cancer/Pisces. Mars square Saturn will sorely test your patience. This aspect is like stepping on the gas (Mars) while keeping your foot on the brake (Saturn). Accomplish what you can and let the rest go. Venus trine Neptune is a classic escape aspect. A brief escape to leisurely take a walk by water (Neptune) is the preferred medicine to ease the testy Mars square Saturn aspect.

August 8: Sun Trine Chiron at 16 Degrees Leo/Aries. Review and renew your sense of purpose and spiritual path under the Sun trine Chiron aspect in the fire signs of Leo/Aries. Fire signs give “oomph” to your decisions.

August 9: Venus Opposition Pluto at 26 Degrees Cancer/Capricorn and Mercury Quincunx Jupiter at 8 Degrees Virgo/Aries. Be careful under Venus opposition Pluto, especially in your interactions with others. Express yourself truthfully, but don’t aggressively push. Doing so will only create stand-offs and control issues. Mercury quincunx Jupiter calls for adjustment in your communication style. Are you being too wordy when trying to get your point across?

August 11: Full Moon at 19 Degrees Aquarius/Leo Conjunct Saturn and Sun Square Uranus at 18 Degrees Leo/Taurus. This Aquarius Full Moon conjunct Saturn with the Sun square Uranus is an erratic and unpredictable Moon that helps you break free. Aquarius wants us to move forward into the unknown and to break the chains restricting us. Saturn is those chains. Saturn wants us to cling to the past and to move slowly. The Moon is our emotions and what we need to make us happy. Use this time of brilliant flashes of insight (Uranus and Aquarius) to ascertain what you really want (Moon) and to carefully plan (Saturn) how to manifest your best, most authentic self (Leo).  

Venus Enters Leo bringing a sense of fun and creativity. Enjoy your relationships and give yourself an “atta boy, atta girl” pat on the back for what you have accomplished.



August 14:  Sun Opposition Saturn at 22 Degrees Leo/Aquarius; and Mars Trine Pluto at 26 Degrees Taurus/Capricorn. Mars trine Pluto gives you a burst of energy and a desire to push forward aggressively. However, the tortoise wins the race when the Sun is opposition Saturn. For the best results, patiently tackle any obstacles in a steady, focused way (Saturn).

August 16:  Mercury Trine Uranus at 18 Degrees Virgo/Taurus. Mercury trine Uranus can bring out radical and unusual viewpoints. Instead, use this time to tune into brilliant flashes of insight and inspiration. Venus trine Jupiter at 8 degrees Leo/Aries on the 17th helps you discover your heart’s desire. Altogether, these are wonderful aspects if used correctly.

August 20: Mars Enters Gemini. The emphasis is on communication of all kinds when Mars is in Gemini.

August 21:  Mercury Opposition Neptune at 25 Degrees Virgo/Pisces.  For the best results, turn on your right-brain, intuitive thinking, but be careful of confusion and misperception.

August 22: Sun Enters Virgo. When the Sun is in Virgo until September 23, tackle any tasks that require logic, organization and analytical abilities.

August 25: Mercury Enters Libra. Mercury in Libra is a social time when artistic pursuits and partnership activities are favored. This is a good time to write that note or letter to smooth any lingering relationship issues.

August 27: New Moon at 4 Degrees Virgo and Sun and Moon Square Mars at 4 Degrees Virgo/Gemini. Venus Square Uranus at 19 Degrees Leo/Taurus. The New Moon in Virgo wants safety, order and clarity. However, Mars square Uranus brings a chaotic, disorganized, disruptive element into the picture. This is one of those times when its best to “let go and let God” and to go with the flow. The Virgo New Moon is about learning to trust and to be okay with the perfect imperfections of life. And, for all of my Virgo readers – you do not need to be perfect to be special and important and wonderful.



August 28-31. Venus Opposition Saturn at 20 Degrees Leo/Aquarius. Venus Quincunx Neptune at 24 Degrees Leo/Pisces. Use the clear and focused lens of Venus opposition Saturn to reassess your relationships and friendships. However, avoid life changing decisions now. Venus quincunx Neptune can fog your thinking processes and you may be extra impressionable.

Astrology Transits July 2022 – Family and Caring

The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.” — Richard Bach

This month the focus is on the sign of Cancer until July 22nd when the Sun moves into the sign of Leo. The sign of Cancer is about nurturing and love, including self-love. Our family is the focus when the Sun is in Cancer, but as noted above, our family is not limited to our family of birth, but includes friends and soul connections of all kinds.


So, as we go through the month and encounter testy, challenging connections like Mars square Pluto that is strong around July 1, let’s all remember our connections to family, friends, animals and anyone or anything else we really care about. Such connections (Gemini) are the balm that helps us make the best of whatever life throws at us.


On another note, I found this little gem from my favorite financial astrologer, Raymond Merriman: “Neptune turned retrograde and the Sun squared Jupiter both on June 28, which can indicate reversals in crude oil prices.” Of course, as he pointed out, Jupiter and Neptune together can bring irrational euphoria. As I see it, an extra dose of optimism (Jupiter) is just what the doctor ordered in these erratic (Uranus) times. Enjoy the month of July.


July 1:  Mars Square Pluto at 27-28 Degrees Aries/Capricorn. Mars square Pluto gives you a lot of personal energy and push for achievement that can bring positive results. The deep downside of this aspect is the out-of-control assertion of power, buried rage coming out into the open and a ruthless and competitive mindset. Mars square Pluto is very much connected to sexual matters. It is no wonder that the stunning Supreme Court decision regarding Roe vs. Wade came down as Mars was applying to Pluto. We should all be careful not to exhibit an impulsive, hateful reaction, but instead to use the literally “superhuman” power denoted by Mars square Pluto to work towards a more humane and just outcome.


July 2:  Mercury Trine Saturn at 24-25 Degrees Gemini/Aquarius; Mercury Square Neptune at 24-25 Degrees Gemini/Pisces. This is such an interesting mix of energies. Mercury trine Saturn brings concentration and rational, logical thinking. Mercury square Neptune brings over-stimulated imagination, and intuitive thinking that can lead to confusion, delusion and deceit.  Let your imagination flow, but emphasize the use of rational, clear thinking to make any decisions.


July 5:  Mercury Enters Cancer and Mars Enters Taurus. Mercury Sextiles Mars at 0 Degrees Cancer/Taurus.  Mars in Taurus brings strong personal desires, especially around security issues. Mercury in Cancer is an excellent time to communicate with family and those you consider to be family. The sextile helps such communication to flow easily.


July 10:  Sun Sextile Uranus at 18 Degrees Cancer/Taurus. This is an exciting transit firing up your need for change and fresh horizons. Sun sextile Uranus will help you find innovative ways to establish new habits and to make the needed changes. Your need for freedom is tweaked under this transit.


July 13: Full Moon at 21 Degrees Capricorn Opposing Sun at 21 Degrees Cancer.  The Full Moon at the Capricorn/Cancer axis points to a conflict between career and home matters or, simply, a pulling between practicality and nurturing. This Capricorn Full Moon illuminates your business and professional life and gifts you with an abundance of reality-based ambition. Use the Capricorn Full Moon to finish up old projects and to implement new, lucrative career opportunities.


July 13:  Mercury Sextile Uranus at 18 Degrees Cancer/Taurus. Your mind may be abuzz with all kinds of unusual, inventive and, even radical, ideas. You are ready to express yourself in new and, possibly, shocking ways. Mercury sextile Uranus is an excellent aspect under which to find new, unexpected solutions to old “unsolvable” problems. Put on your thinking cap and let the unconventional ideas flow.


July 14-15:  Venus Square Neptune at 25 Degrees Gemini/Pisces and Venus Quincunx Pluto at 27 Degrees Gemini/Pisces. Under Venus square Neptune you may have unrealistic expectations, especially as regards a romantic or financial connection. Daydreams and rose-colored glasses flourish under this aspect. Venus quincunx Pluto stresses the need for adjustment in your perception of reality.


July 16:  Sun Conjunct Mercury at 23 Degrees Cancer and Sun and Mercury Quincunx Saturn at 23 Degrees Cancer/Aquarius. The Sun conjunct Mercury brings excellent vibes around clear, assertive communication. It is especially good for speaking or writing. Mercury quincunx Saturn can be a little challenging, as it requires that an adjustment to be made. While Sun conjunct Mercury brings clear thinking, Sun and Mercury quincunx Saturn requires that you concentrate, and limit the tendency to overthink and overload your mind.


Then on July 17, the Sun and Mercury are trine Neptune. Sun trine Neptune nudges you to follow your intuition and to record your dreams and ideas. Mercury trine Neptune is similar to Sun trine Neptune, but it adds accuracy to your intuitive thinking and you are more aware of subtleties.


July 18-19:  Mercury and Sun Opposing Pluto at 27 Degrees Cancer/Capricorn. You may feel an overload of mental intensity and a touch of paranoia when Mercury is opposing Pluto. The Sun opposing Pluto can subject you to a passive-aggressive argument. You are more vulnerable to persuasive speech under these planetary connections, so be aware of salespeople and overly-zealous friends and family trying to change your mind.


July 19: Mercury Enters Leo. Mercury likes being in Leo, since air (Mercury) planets thrive in fire signs (Leo). Learning new things, socializing, and just having fun are called for when Mercury transits Leo. It is a great time to take a leadership role at work or in groups.


July 22: Sun Enters Leo.


July 23:  Mercury Trine Jupiter at 8 Degrees Leo/Aries. Take advantage of Mercury trine Jupiter in the fiery signs of Leo and Aries by making plans for the future and by working out more efficient organizational systems. Jupiter adds a generally expansive and optimistic energy to your ideas, so entertain all possibilities.


July 25: Venus Square Jupiter at 8 Degrees Cancer/Aries. Venus square Jupiter is a wonderful transit so long as you use some discipline and avoid acting on impulse. Venus square Jupiter is superb for enjoying your self in the company of others. Personal relationships and money matters are also favored under Venus square Jupiter.


The next day Mercury squares Mars at 14 Degrees Leo/Taurus. Mercury square Mars is a difficult transit. You may feel touchy and irritable and may be a little more accident prone, especially injuries to your arms and legs due to not paying attention. As everyone around you is also experiencing Mercury square Mars, be careful not to provoke unwanted attention.


July 28: New Moon at 5 Degrees Leo. Unlike last month’s New Moon in Cancer, this Leo New Moon is energizing and much less emotional. Use this Leo New moon to activate your goals, to release and nurture your inner child, and to give to yourself and others in a warm, generous, Leo way. Creative endeavors, fun activities, and activities with children are all favored. The icing on the cake is the New Moon trine Jupiter. Jupiter expands everything it touches and lends a sense of optimism, expansion and joy to this Leo New Moon. What you set in motion now will gain additional umph when Mars joins Uranus and the North Node at 18 degrees Taurus on August 1.



July 31: Sun Trine Jupiter at 8 Degrees Leo/Aries. Good feelings, peace and harmony are in the air under Sun trine Jupiter. Use this helpful trine to manifest your desires: Envision what you want and feel yourself already receiving it. Do this with emotion for at least 30 days to train your subconscious to manifest what you have envisioned under Sun trine Jupiter.

Astrology Transits June 2022 – Connection


Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.  — Yehuda Berg

Those of you who are long-time subscribers to my newsletter have seen this picture before. I have recycled it here because I love it, and because  it reflects the communicative, connective energy of Gemini that is in focus from May 20 to June 21. Of course, Mercury retrograde provides an added push (recycle, relearn, redo, etc.).

The month is relatively quiet with the emphasis on the signs of Gemini and, later, Cancer. Of course, Mars, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto are always hovering in the background asking for the chance to say their piece.

In fact, Mars in its home sign of Aries from May 24th until July 5th will stir up all manner of things. Positively, Mars in Aries brings a burst of energy, action and forward-moving motion. Negatively, it can provoke feelings of aggression, anger and impulsivity. Those of you with planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn will feel this Martian energy the most. Watch your anger level and do not provoke anger from others during transiting Mars in Aries.


June 2:  Mars Sesquiquadrate South Node at 6 Degrees Aries/21 Degrees Scorpio; and Sun Sesquiquadrate Pluto at 12 Degrees Gemini/28 Degrees Capricorn. Sesquiquadrate aspects are challenging because the planets involved have nothing in common. It’s like attending a high-society party in your gardening clothes. Mars sesquiquadrate the South Node has the effect of forcing you to take time to reassess your goals. Sun sesquiquadrate Pluto amps up energy. You may be forced to look at whether the life you are living is the life you want to be living.

June 4:  Mercury Turns Direct at 26 Degrees Taurus.
Mercury has now retrograded back into the late degrees of Taurus, where it will begin to move forward. Mercury will re-enter Gemini on June 14.

June 6:  Sun Sextile Chiron at 15 Degrees Gemini/Aries.  
The Sun sextile Chiron can bring a spiritual awakening and a renewed sense of purpose. Pay special attention to this transit if you have planets near 15 degrees of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) or 15 degrees of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn). The zodiac house where the transit shows up will be important to you. Its a cosmic gift to help you let go of old hurts in that area of your life.

June 10:  Mercury Trine Pluto at 28 Degrees Taurus/Capricorn.
 Mercury trine Pluto can bring penetrating (Pluto) conversations (Mercury), powerful (Pluto) insights (Mercury) and a feeling of exposure. You may be more open to bringing psychological issues out for review.

June 11: Venus Conjunct Uranus at 16 Degrees Taurus. 
Venus conjunct Uranus brings a certain unpredictable energy, so go with the flow. Doing so can open up a new and exciting path around money, love or creativity. A creative person could cross your path or a creative project could appear from out of the blue; especially if you have planets near 16 degrees Taurus.

June 13:  Mercury Enters Gemini.
Mercury loves being in its home sign of Gemini. Mercury in Gemini brings lots of stimulating conversations and new understandings. Ideas are front and center. Enjoy anything that stimulates your mind, such as books, letters, magazines, social networking, etc. This is an excellent time to brainstorm with others about a new idea or project that you are contemplating.

June 14-15:  Full Moon at 23 Degrees Sagittarius/Gemini.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius wants you to expand your horizons and to learn new and exciting things. Of course, the Moon is also opposing the Sun in Gemini. This makes the quest for knowledge, new horizons and exploration even more compelling. Get out those maps and plan your summertime travel and/or study itinerary!

The Sun and Moon are T-square Neptune at this Sagittarius Full Moon. You may be drawn to studying religion, philosophy and belief systems in general. Also, with Mars conjunct Chiron at 15 degrees Aries, your studies may reveal a healing path or a resolution to old anger issues.

In addition, Venus conjunct North Node and Venus opposition South Node bring a sense of destiny (Nodes) to your life; especially those of you with 15 to 25 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius). Uranus conjunct Venus adds to the sense of destiny and surprise (Uranus).


June 18:  Venus Square Saturn at 25 Degrees Taurus/Aquarius.
Venus square Saturn may call for a re-evaluation of your relationships and your money matters. Venus is at home in Taurus and, thus, is extra strong here. Saturn calls for a clear-eyed view of reality. Venus square Saturn can help you assess all relationship and money matters. Ask yourself: Is there someone in your life that is bringing you down? If so, how can you remedy that situation or do you need to let them go? Ask yourself: could I improve the way I am managing my money?

June 19:  Sun Inconjunct Pluto at 28 Degrees Gemini/Capricorn.
The inconjunct aspect requires an adjustment in the energies shown by the signs involved. In this case, the Sun in Gemini is a rather free-flowing energy, while Pluto in Capricorn wants control and responsibility. Ask yourself: where have I exerted too much control (Pluto) or how have I let things slide when I should have been more in control?

June 19-20: Venus Sextile Neptune and Mercury Sextile Jupiter.
 Lovely vibes prevail under Venus sextile Neptune and Mercury sextile Jupiter. Venus sextile Neptune brings a sense of ease, romance and  flow; while Mercury sextile Jupiter brings a sense of optimism and expansion. Enjoy!

June 21:  Sun Enters Cancer. 

June 25: Mercury Enters Gemini. 
Mercury in Gemini brings lots of short trips and long talks. In fact, it fosters all kinds of communication. On June 27 when Mercury is sextile both Saturn and Chiron, a conversation or insight can bring feelings of alienation, but also healing.

June 28:  New Moon at 7 Degrees Cancer
. Sun Square Jupiter at 7 Degrees Cancer/Aries. Venus Sextile Jupiter at 7 Degrees Gemini/Aries. This is certainly a dynamic Cancer New Moon. The cardinal signs of Cancer and Aries are activated and promise lots of action. Sun square Jupiter can bring a challenge between your emotional life (Cancer) and your active public facing self (Aries). Above all, this New Moon in Cancer nudges you to let go of old emotional wounds, stress and unrealistic expectations. I would guess that every single one of us has a toxic emotional build up brought about by the events of the last several years. Let this Cancer New Moon help you find an escape valve. Cry, punch a pillow, hike by the water, or do cleansing, forgiveness rituals to help you detox your emotions.
