No traction. Caution lights. The Moon is in the unfocused Void of Course cycle from yesterday and until she enters Virgo tomorrow morning!
Our intuition and judgment can be cloudy when the Moon is V/C. Add to that Mercury and Venus both appearing to back up on the bases, Retrograde, and we have a very unfocused Skywatch today.
Best to postpone all important decisions and purchases for another day. This is a very good day to do a favor or to check out books on spiritual matters.
Take a positive approach today. The Moon enters fiery and generous Leo at 5:33 am PDT early this morning. Luna quickly lines up opposite grumpy Saturn at 6:31 am and that is bound to add a serious tone to thinking and anticipations as you start your day. Times change.
A positive breeze sets up Tuesday morning as the Moon moves into a very friendly sextile to agreeable Venus at 3:05 pm Tuesday afternoon. A touch of static shows up at 10:34 pm when the Moon squares jumpy Uranus and then turns Void of Course.
Problems are likely to follow. Keep it simple tonight.
As times change.
A difference of opinion is likely today. Morning hours are the best for important calls and business. Afternoon hours are mixed.
The Moon trines creative Neptune at 1:22 pm PDT but travels on to oppose stubborn Pluto at 7:19 pm and opinionated Jupiter at 8:29 pm. Compromises usually work wonders with oppositions. This is the time to find some.
As times change.
Things get a bit complicated as we all celebrate the Summer Solstice on Saturday as the Sun enters Summer Sign Cancer at 2:44 pm PDT Saturday afternoon. A touch of fog is in the heavens Saturday morning when the Moon squares spacey Neptune at 6:07 am. A weird turn of events follows. The Moon squares angry, impatient Mars at 2:47 pm kicking on the caution lights as Luna then turns Void of Course until she enters Cancer at 11:02 pm Saturday night!. Moon V/C periods add more fog and unrealistic appraisals and decisions now with Mercury and Venus both Retrograde. A powerful New Moon, Solar Eclipse, in emotional Cancer lines up in the heavens at 11:41 pm. A Solar Eclipse sitting in the Solstice chart of Summer is very rare and suggests an unusual season is ahead. The New Moon inspires new beginnings and taking the initiative in most folks. On the street it would be: Put up or shut up.
Sunday’s Skywatch is quiet. Luna sails out into open seas in home sign Cancer Sunday morning and does not entertain until she makes a sextile to friendly Uranus at 4:35 pm PDT Sunday afternoon. Clear skies follow for the rest of the day and night. As times change.
If your birthday is this week (June 21-27)
You’ve got to be patient and very careful making long-range plans and decisions this year, Cancer. It’s helpful that your ruler Mercury and Venus are both in Gemini in your new Solar Return. However, since they are both Retrograde you can get confused about what someone or something is worth and make some bad errors in judgment and break up a relationship just after you get their name tattooed on your arm. Matters and people from the past are like to show up in the months ahead, and with Venus in your pocket, are likely to bring something positive back into your life. Get important ideas down on paper and make sure you know what you want this year, Gemini. Errors and confusion are likely if you don’t. As times change.
Green lights. The Moon in curious Gemini meets sweet Venus in the heavens at 1:40 am PDT.
Luna then sails out into calm waters and makes no connection with other planets. That means the coast is clear.
And the next major event in the Skywatch, Mars sextile lucky Jupiter, is powering up Friday afternoon and evening.
A New Moon and Solar Eclipse are brewing. This can be a tremendous breakthrough time for some folks.
A double set of caution lights comes on today and lasts until Venus resumes direct motion on June 25. The window of time in between these dates contains Venus and Mercury both in their unfocused Retrograde cycle. All due to Mercury beginning to back up on the bases last night increasing the chances of delays, misunderstandings, breakdowns, and confusion around your home or office.
Mercury backs up in emotional Cancer which adds another complication to communications: Feelings and ideas get mixed up in this pairing and Venus Retrograde adds her own foggy appraisals to matters under discussion in the days ahead.
The rest of Thursday’s Skywatch is high energy but extremely cloudy when the Moon turns Void of Course at 5:02 am PDT until she enters Gemini at 2:00 pm. Green lights kick on at this moment as a powerful and intense Mars Pluto sextile powers up and turns exact at 4:08 pm.
A welcome Moon Saturn trine at 3:34 pm encourages good decisions and connections. Matters and people from the past often show up during Rx cycles and if so today you can expect something good to come of it.
