The Aries Sun burns extra-bright with a sextile from Jupiter. You can direct this extra energy into Arean activities such as athletics, sex, leadership and new beginnings. Or use this abundant vitality any other way you wish!
Chiron sextile Pluto
The strong, flowing empowerment of spiritual healing. That’s one way in which today’s sextile between Piscean Chiron and Pluto can manifest. Others include transformational mentoring opportunities and abundant opportunities to clear old emotional and psychological wounds. There’s also lots of energy available to fine-tune the products of your creative inspiration.
Today’s exact sextile is a peak moment. But this aspect started mid-January and lasts through early June. And that’s not the whole story: these planets are engaged in a five-year dance!
Chiron and Pluto first started interacting in the spring of 2011. They will continue blending their energies through early 2016. So you’ll have energetic support for mentoring, clearing and fine-tuning for several years to come!
Ceres enters Cancer
Ceres will transit Cancer today thru 6/22. In Roman mythology, Ceres (called Demeter by the Greeks) is the mother who must release her daughter Persephone to Pluto’s underworld for half the year. Cancer is the sign associated with motherhood, family and security.
So don’t be surprised if the theme of release and return shows up in your own experience. It’s part of a mother’s job to guide and protect her children. But it’s also good to remember that everything that you try to control also controls you!
Sexual passion can surge as Venus and Mars join in Aries. This blazing fire can also burn, so keep your anger management skills honed.
Less steamy forms of relating are also stimulated. It’s a great time to initiate a new friendship, or rekindle an existing one. And creative energy is easily available for artists of all stripes.
It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during these times. “Business as usual” is the best strategy for these periods, which occur when the Moon has made its last major Ptolemaic aspect but has not yet moved into the next sign.
