Forecast Jun 3-9, 2019: Time To Prioritize

Venus moves into Gemini as the mutable t-square takes shape

A new Gemini moon begins a week that will see Mercury and Venus change signs, as well as our first full encounters with the incoming mutable t-squares. Like last week’s start, the moon in a mutable sign will contribute to the escalating tensions among the planets in mutable signs. Something important is shaking loose. While the year’s second Jupiter square to Neptune builds to its June 16th crescendo in the background, Mercury will slip into emotional Cancer, joining provocative Mars and the North Node, and Venus will step into the mutable fray on Saturday when she moves into Gemini. Over the weekend a Virgo moon will force some of these tensions to a head as the Gemini Sun squares Neptune in Pisces and prepares to oppose Jupiter in Sagittarius on Monday. Prioritize now and know when to let go.

Here It Comes

Mercury set to square Neptune and oppose Jupiter

Well, if the Pisces moon we had early in the week didn’t sound any intuitive alarms, informative Mercury is about to turn up the volume.  On Wednesday, the 29th, it squares gargantuan Neptune and on Thursday, the 30th, it opposes larger-than-life Jupiter.  These aspects occur under the blunt and direct force of an Aries moon.  Examining, and where necessary, curbing our excesses is a key topic throughout the current Gemini Sun cycle.  This week the winged Messenger of the Gods is giving us a taste of what’s about to unfurl.  This Gemini solar run features the year’s next Jupiter Neptune square, the day before a Sagittarius full moon, as well as the pressure of a multitude of mutable t-squares.  Jupiter, in its lower expression, is the would-be-king who is full of hot air, and Neptune, at its worst, presides over oceans of self-delusion and next level checking out.  If we’re living beyond our means, engaging in costly addictions and distractions or simply failing to get our act together, Mercury is about drop some truth on us.  One of the more valuable traits of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) is their adaptability.  Nimble and flexible, they know when to let go and when to change plans.  If we can make the appropriate decisions and adjustments this week, we’re in for a much smoother ride over the coming weeks, and months.  Remember, Mars is on course for confrontations with Saturn and Pluto in June and reality-checking Saturn, the ringed planet of limitations, is on track for a friendly connection to Neptune mid-month.  If we let Mercury help us clarify our priorities now, austere Saturn will be along shortly to reward our focused efforts.  So, get mindful and be prepared to move like a Ninja.

Forecast May 27-June 2, 2019: The Fortuitous Pisces Moon

Pisces Moon

The week starts with a fortuitous Pisces moon, which, in its inimitable way, is showing us both the challenges and strengths unfolding in the current Gemini Sun cycle. On Monday alone, this Pisces moon will square Mercury and Jupiter, conjoin Neptune and sextile Venus, Saturn and Pluto. Later in the week Mercury, home in Gemini, will square Neptune and oppose Jupiter, and Venus, home in Taurus, will sextile Neptune before trining Saturn on Friday and powerful Pluto on Sunday. The intuitive Pisces moon that begins the week is acting like our internal early detection system, psychically scanning our fields for raw intel. Informed by the spiritual data, we can navigate the inbound turbulence and get well-positioned for the week’s extra bountiful aspects. A few quincunx aspects will throw some wonkiness our way. But for groovy Pisces, the weirder the better. Be sure to tune into the cosmic messages downloading on Monday and Tuesday. They are offering the vision that can guide us to soul-level riches far beyond the present week.


Neptune Trine The North Node: Time For Reflection

Behind the busy scenes of the Sun and Mercury jumping into chatty Gemini, a much subtler and more impactful aspect is taking shape. Neptune in Pisces creates a supportive trine to the North Node in Cancer late Tuesday night. This connection gives us both some relief from the ongoing and more direct Pluto and Saturn oppositions to the North Node and the ability to gently release what is no longer needed, Unlike the fast-paced inner planet transits, the influence of this trine lasts for at least two to three weeks, if not months, on either side of its exact connection point. Gently dissolving hard lines to facilitate the soul’s growth is what you may be experiencing internally. So, while the world outside might get carried away with Gemini chatter, you may be guided to unplug and spend some alone time. Meditating on your life’s next big steps is being supported by the spiritual and agreeable combination of Neptune and the North Node.

Saturn Sextile Neptune: Informed Form Part 1

While stern Saturn and nebulous Neptune may seem like one of astrology’s oddest couples, there’s an exquisite, transformational power in their pairing. In 2019 they will form three exact sextiles, from January through November, and their meetings will color the entire year. If you’ve ever worked with rosary beads or a mala, then you innately understand this combination. Saturn gives us the physical structure (beads) and Neptune the connection to spirit (prayer). Practicing a spiritual discipline focuses our attention, opens up the channel to God (Light) and centers us. In a hyper busy world of seemingly endless distraction, ever shortening attention spans and tempers, and excessive drug use, a spiritual practice offers peace, clarity and purposefulness.

Another consideration of this transit is the elements that are present, earth and water. What is the material without the spiritual? What is the spiritual with no real-life application? In the three meetings of 2019, we are offered a dialog between these influential forces. And both planets are in their home signs, adding deeper resonance to their work. Neptune and Pisces have a reputation for getting too far out there, so much so that we become lost and incapable of accomplishing anything. At the extreme of addiction, we may lose the ability to even fuction in the world. Saturnian sobriety is an antidote. Achievement is the cornerstone of Capricorn, and Saturn rewards a job well done. You can think of him as the “A” you received in that course you had an epic struggle with, yet through your persistence somehow mastered. On the material extreme, the empty pursuit of goals or possessions at best yields temporary satisfaction. Upon attainment, the next mountain to climb emerges, but with no application and to no purpose. Interestingly this simply becomes another form of addiction, to more, whatever that more is. Neptune is sneaky like that.

This set of sextiles is offering insight and pragmatic wisdom. Through dedicaton (Saturn) and introspection, we can examine our underlying beliefs (Neptune), i.e. the operating systems we’ve been running on. Neptune’s oceanic presence can gently and slowly erode old places in the subconscious and their correlating, outgrown patterns in our lives. It can also help us download the Divine and install the needed cosmic upgrades, a clearer sense of our purpose. Ringed Saturn instills an awareness of time and limitation, and therefore creates urgency in our lives. Its austerity can steer us away from pointless distraction and towards the goals that have abiding meaning in our lives. The first sextile is on January 31st. Got beads?
