Relationship, creative or financial challenge–always good for personal growth–could arise this week as a Venus-Uranus-Pluto T-Square peaks. A Mars-Uranus quincunx could augment this volatility.
Fortunately, a Saturn-Neptune Trine empowers visualizing an improved reality. And a Venus-Chiron Trine can provide healing balm. Proceed with consciousness!
Do you need some helpful advice from a trusted advisor? Are you in a position to give sage counsel to others? Both scenarios receive flowing support from a Mercury-Chiron trine. With Mercury in Cancer, interfamilial communication receives special support.
An interpretation of today’s Venus-Pluto opposition would be incomplete without considering the Venus-Uranus-Pluto T-Square peaking tomorrow. Here’s that interpretation.
One of 2013’s most powerful astrological aspects, a Saturn-Neptune Trine, peaks today. These two planet have been connecting since early May, and their joint influence will continue through September.
My favorite way to use Saturn and Neptune together is to do Law of Attraction work. Neptune rules visualization, while Saturn rules physical manifestation.
One of Neptune’s primary functions is to dissolve what does not serve you, while spiritualizing what does. Since Saturn represents structures–physical or energetic–pay attention to how this pair is operating in your life. If something is dissolving anyway, perhaps it’s time to release it. If something feels energetically supported, and is being fed by your intuitive flow, perhaps it deserves additional attention.
Neptune and Saturn are being further energized by three faster planets this month. As these planets form the third corner of an equilateral triangle with Saturn and Neptune, they form flowing aspect patterns called Grand Trines. Venus and Mercury are involved in these Grand Trines during the first half of June. The Sun takes its turn in the second half of the month.
But the center stage event will be Saturn and Neptune’s Grand Trine with Jupiter, mid-June through mid-August. The positive possibilities of this Grand Trine are off the charts, and will be detailed in next week’s forecast!
“Challenge for growth” opportunities in your relationships, finances and creativity may show themselves as the Venus-Uranus-Pluto T-Square peaks. It started on 6/6 and ends on 6/17. With Venus in Cancer, these energies may be particularly strong in your family interactions.
A Venus-Uranus square, which is a part of this T-square, is also exact today. Its meaning is included in this T-square interpretation.
Both romantic and platonic relationships can be tested by this T-Square, sometimes severely. The uncompromising energies of Uranus and Pluto are actually your allies. They’re here to show you what’s really going on in your relationships.
If things get challenging, make some quiet time to tune into your intuitive flashes, sent to you courtesy of Uranus. These “text messages from God” are the most accurate information available to us humans. They can always show you your best course of action if you’re just willing to follow them.
If a relationship is on solid ground, these energies can catapult it to the next amazing level. Don’t ever believe that “it doesn’t get better than this.” There is no upper limit!
This T-Square can also bring challenge to the creative and financial arenas. But it can also fuel delightful surprises and wonderful breakthroughs. The more you release what doesn’t serve you and follow your intuition, the more satisfying your results will be.
Given the intensity of the Venus-Uranus-Pluto T-Square that peaked on Wednesday, you might feel the need for some counseling or mentoring. Fortunately, these are smoothly supported with a Venus-Chiron Trine. With Venus in Cancer, family counseling gets special support.
Uranus’ quintile to the Geminian Sun can help you be more receptive to intuitive flashes. It can also add a touch of genius to your mental machinations.
Juno turns retrograde through 9/24. This is a good time to reflect on her key themes: marriage, commitment, beauty, and the renewal of love.
Are you feeling friction or frustration around anger, aggression or sexuality? This can happen under a Mars-Pluto quincunx. Redirect this energy with exercise, athletic competition, appropriate assertiveness and/or mutually enriching sexuality. With Mars in Gemini, learning and sharing information can also give this energy a positive outlet.
Chiron turns retrograde through 11/19. This is an excellent time to reflect on your unhealed wounds, as well as your healing and mentoring abilities.
Natal planets at 11° to 17° of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) will feel Chiron’s influence with special power as it turns retrograde at 14° Pisces. If unpleasant emotions get triggered, you may find this healing invocation helpful.
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.
6/10, 5:15 pm – 6/12, 12:59 am (Leo)
6/14, 7:15 am – 12:27 pm (Virgo)
6/16, 5:26 pm – 9:20 pm (Libra)
Whatever your Sun Sign, Benjamin’s forecasts can help you make the best use of the current astrological energies.
Events are most powerful on the dates listed, but their influence will be active for at least several days before and after. Everyone is affected by these global transits. However, you will be most powerfully impacted when moving planets activate sensitive points in your natal chart.
All dates and times are in the U.S. eastern time zone.
