Not ordinary. This is an unusual month in the Skywatch. In the weeks ahead, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, Mercury, and Venus will all be Retrograde. Expect delays, slowdowns, misunderstandings, and things to be out of sync and more difficult to deal with than usual.
Additionally, Mars remains in water sign Pisces most of the month decreasing the energy available to get the job done. We also have two Eclipses this month, and a huge kiss as Jupiter and Pluto again meet in the heavens. Suggestion: if you have critical or priority matters to attend to in June, be certain to read ahead and pick out the best days to take action.
Green lights are up on Monday for work or play. The Moon in easygoing Libra trines ruler Venus, who is still Retrograde, at 8:20 am PDT this morning and is likely to put all in a good mood. So tackle the hard jobs first thing. Clear skies follow for the rest of the day and night. This is a good day to network and to show up. A Libra Moon usually makes everyone a bit friendlier. As times change.
Green lights are up Sunday morning. The Moon enters gentle Libra at 7:38 am PDT and finds her way into a productive trine with practical Saturn at 10:20 am. The only quack in the heavens appears at 2:16 pm when the Moon squares trickster Mercury — say little then, it could be a simple misunderstanding, and you’ll enjoy the clear skies that follow. As times change.
If your birthday is this week (May 31–June 6)
Retrograde Venus is sitting next to your Sun in your new Solar Return, Gemini. She is of great help in social matters and increases your artistic skills among other things — all to the good except for her urge to eat sweets. The “Rub” is that both your Sun and Venus square impatient Mars in this chart of your new year. The danger here is you’ll spend your money and love in ways that don’t pay off for you or give you satisfaction once Venus returns to direct motion in July. Your ruler Mercury is in water sign Cancer in this new SR. Emotions will color logic in the months ahead. Advice is to not make important decisions when you are emotionally upset, Gemini. Get emotionally centered before you make a big decision or act. Let times change.
Astrological skies are a bit cloudy Saturday morning for work or play.
A Moon Venus square at 8:14 am PDT Saturday morning is better spent with another donut rather than a chore. The Skywatch clears a few minutes later until Saturday afternoon when the Moon opposes dreamy Neptune at 4:14 pm.
Astrological skies improve in the hours that follow as the Moon trines healing and passionate Pluto at 10:46 pm Saturday night.
Just one quack. The Skywatch is clear and good for work or play this morning.
The Moon sextiles Mercury at 6:32 am PDT and then sails out into calm seas. A very friendly Moon Uranus trine at 7:15 pm is bound to get the evening off to a good start.
But Luna sails on to square the Sun at 8:30 pm which often creates a stressful situation or a rude remark. Clear skies follow.
Unfocused. Caution lights.
The Moon sextiles Venus Retrograde at 6:30 am PDT this morning and then turns Void of Course until early tomorrow morning. Hold off on making important purchases and decisions today, especially with Venus appearing to back up on the bases from our perspective here on Earth.
The other event in the Skywatch is Mercury entering Summer sign Cancer at 11:09 am. This change usually signals the start of hot weather - Mercury rules the winds. Keep it simple tonight.
As times change.
Tackle the hard jobs first thing. The kiss of the day shows up at 12:02 pm PDT when the Sun and Moon join hands in a sextile. A note of tension follows as Luna squares jumpy Uranus at 2:34 pm. But that’s it. Clear skies follow for the rest of the day and night.
