A volatile, energizing T-square peaks this week. This dynamic trio of Mars, Uranus and Pluto remind us that the energies of revolutionary transformation sparked by April’s Cardinal Grand Cross are still very much with us!
This week also feature the ingress of the Summer Solstice (the Sun enters Cancer), the wounded healer Chiron turning retrograde, and more!
No major astrological events.
Retrograde Mercury reverses into Gemini today, where it will remain through 7/12. (Mercury turns direct on 7/1.) The winged messenger in one of its home signs radiates the energy of learning and sharing information. It also radiates a love of playfulness, variety and mischief.
Juno also enters Gemini today, but going forward instead of backward. Communication, learning and variety in domestic affairs is supported. Juno’s passage through Gemini lasts through 8/8.
Expand energetically into your creativity and relationships as Venus sextiles Jupiter. With Venus in Taurus, sensuality and financial increase are also supported.
Inspiration is in the air with the Geminian Sun quintile Uranus. This is also a good time to embody your authentic egoic self and catch more intuitive flashes.
Learning, communication and mischievousness are supported as the Sun and retrograde Mercury cross paths in Gemini.
The Mars-Uranus-Pluto T-square that started on 4/4 peaks today. Avoid accidents and conflict by exercising extra caution and avoiding dangerously volatile situations. But this aspect pattern is rocket fuel if you’re ready for big changes, major breakthroughs and quantum leaps!
This T-square is not quite as strong as it was on 4/22, when the Cardinal Grand Cross formed by these three planets and Jupiter peaked. That iteration of this T-square was exact within 0.3°, while the current one is peaking 3.5° from exactitude.
But this is still a formidable aspect pattern, and it’s riding the momentum of the waning Cardinal Grand Cross. Stability may be elusive as this T-square wraps up its three-month run on 7/3, but opportunity abounds for the bold!
Chiron runs its five-month retrograde today thru 11/23, backpedaling from 18° to 13° Pisces. This is a good time to reflect on how healing and mentoring are manifesting for you.
Life areas represented by natal points between 15° and 21° in the mutable signs — Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces – are more likely to experience some type of wounding in order to stimulate deeper healing opportunities.
The interpretation of today’s quintile between Geminian Mercury and Uranus is pretty much the same as the one for Thursday’s quintile between the Geminian Sun and Uranus. Embody your authentic egoic self, catch more intuitive flashes and feel the inspiration in the air!
The Sun enters Cancer today at 6:51 AM, marking the Summer Solstice. The longest day of the year ushers in the energy of healing, security and maternal nurturing.
No major astrological events.
It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.
