It’s a great week to stare up at the night sky. All is lovely when we have time to relax, but anything more practical might not be so easy. Thanks to Mercury retrograde and square Neptune, we’ve been dealing with communication glitches and mood swings that can take us way inside one minute and then make us restlessly social the next.
The pattern begins to change over this week. Venus enters Leo this morning, trines Saturn over the weekend, and encourages us to socialize. With this challenged Mercury, we may think we’ve let our beloveds know what we need and either don’t get the message across clearly, or our needs clash with their own emotional patterns, and no one feels heard. We must be patient, pay attention, and take turns.
We may also have more energy and a desire to get out of the hammock and start those deferred projects as energizing Mars sextiles expansive Jupiter this weekend. But we can try to push things ahead of schedule. So get started, but go slowly. Timing and pacing will make a world of difference.
Remember this toward the end of the week as the moon enters impatient Aries, just as Mercury turns direct late Thursday. We can rush ahead and barrel straight into a wall; feel the revving engines but watch the road. Next week we get a green light.
Friday, June 5: We see how our personal needs can upstage our professional needs, or uncover another layer of our work under a durable Capricorn moon. As Venus enters Leo midday, we are infused with emotional urgency. Tonight we may want to hog the spotlight, but need to focus on group dynamics as the moon enters community-oriented Aquarius. Saturday, June 6: Look for beauty from the past: antiques or a dear old friend returning. If we’re feeling lonely, find a group to mix politics, art, and sociability as Venus trines Saturn and can bring unusual quirks of conversation. Random meanings may have profound effects. Sunday, June 7: It’s a good day to have iced tea in the shade and ponder how to fix the world. If we can rest up and flow, let’s do so; the energy meanders. Avoid giving advice; we can pontificate easily and insensitively. Keep expectations low, and let the wells refill. Monday, June 8: This morning has frustrating moments but the mood softens, becoming sensitive and unfocused as the Pisces moon conjuncts Neptune tonight. Divination, gardening, design, and therapy can help us tune into our perceptions. If feelings are hurt, check for misunderstandings first. Tuesday, June 9: Mars sextiles Uranus and gives us the desire to force change just as the dreamy Pisces moon leaves us drifting. Work around obstacles. Use ingenuity to solve problems already present rather than go looking for new ones. Patience, patience. Wednesday, June 10: We step on the gas and the brakes at the same time as the moon enters proactive Aries while Mercury appears to hold still. Harness the restlessness, do preliminary work or tackle an old problem. We just have to be careful not to tackle one another, as it may be tempting. In the morning, interrupted communication produces an urgency to speak that we may regret. Later, a change of scene or change of mindset furthers. Thursday, June 11: This morning is twitchy; others just don’t do what we want. Generous intent returns midday, but the blustery winds of the soul swirl in place until Mercury turns direct late this afternoon. Drive carefully and keep an eye out for storms or stormy people. www.roanrobbins.com
