The slowly waning full Moon is conjunct Pluto 01:24
The Moon squares Uranus becoming void 18:46
The Moon enters Aquarius 23:46
State of the sky:- Today the Sun is at 22 degrees Gemini. There are 8 days to the Solstice, we are in the lightest 18 days of the year in the northern hemisphere. Saturn, Uranus and the Lunar Node are still in a Fire Grand Trine May 2nd to June 18. It symbolises a 'making things better' potential 'through working with others' but it has obviously empowered those who seek to disturb and disrupt democratic processes. It has dominated the skies of Earth over these weeks, and overlooked both the French and UK elections.
Mercury is a direct morning star in Gemini. Mercury zips through Gemini in just 15 days. Events, communications, verbals and general interactions are fast moving. He trines Jupiter tomorrow, which is heady and expansive.He squares Neptune on June 14th which is fuzzy and distorting, opposes Saturn on June 18th, an intellectual challenge, and sextiles Uranus with originality on June 20th. Mercury ingresses Cancer on June 21st and is at Superior Conjunction with the Sun at zero cancer on that day. Mercury next turns retrograde on Aug 13th.Mercury next turns retrograde on Aug 13th
Venus is direct morning star in Taurus. Venus resides in Taurus for 29 days. We have a month of earthy, sensual, tactile, accumulative and comfort seeking motivations ahead of us. Venus has a fair residence here. Coupled with Mars in Cancer we are in for a large measure of home-making energy. Venus sextiles Neptune on June 20th, an emotionally enchanting aspect, and trines Pluto on June 24th which is good for material gain. Venus then ingresses Gemini on July 5th.
Mars is now residing in Cancer for 46 days drawing out a wealth of protective, domestic and nationalistic energy for this period. This is not the easiest of residences. For a start Mars 'falls' in Cancer, his energies do not work well here. Also he makes some very difficult aspects. Venus sextiles Mars on June 9th, the day of the Full Moon, which holds some comfort. Mars squares Jupiter on June 25th which invokes excessive and unproductive events. Mars trines Neptune on June 26th, which has some inspirational potentials, opposes Pluto on July 2nd, an aspect of severe violence, and squares Uranus another harsh and disruptive aspect on July 18th. Mars ingresses Leo on July 20th and fares there better.
Jupiter is now direct in Libra. Jupiter makes a single waning sextile with Saturn on Aug 27th 2017 prior to their Grand Conjunction at the start of Aquarius on the Winter Solstice 2020). Jupiter finally squares Pluto on Aug 4th 2017. He opposes Uranus a final time on Sept 28th 2017. Jupiter enters Scorpio on October 10th 2017.
Saturn is retrograding in Sagittarius. Saturn is retrograde from April 6th to August 25th. Saturn is making 3 invigorating 'fire trine' aspects to Uranus. The first one occurred on Christmas Day, the 2nd on May 19th 2017 and the final hit is on Nov 11th 2017. This is one of the astrological hallmarks of 2017 and it certainly is an improvement on previous years' dire hallmarks. This one harnesses constructive and inspirational energy and can be warmly embraced. The changes ahead are less painful, even healing. Saturn enters Capricorn on the northern hemisphere Winter Solstice 2017, ring big solstice bells then. Saturn is conjunct Pluto on 12th January 2020.
Uranus is now direct in Aries. Uranus enters Taurus on May 15th 2018.
Neptune is now direct in Pisces. Neptune enters Aries on March 30th 2025.
Pluto is now direct in Capricorn at 19 degrees of that sign. Pluto enters Aquarius on March 23rd 2023.
