WE CAN LOOK FORWARD TO A SOCIABLE new moon in Gemini this weekend, when the sun and moon conjunct Venus and begin a cycle of connections and communication. It’s time to multitask and juggle, make new acquaintances, or do anything but stay home and be bored.
The Gemini energy is curious, informative, and even gossipy. We are unusually intuitive and aware of interpersonal dynamics and what’s going on around us, but our thought processes are so busily keeping the mental hamster wheel spinning that we can end up feeling drained — unless we take the time to rest and reconnect with our source. That new moon forms a grand square with Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune at the other angles, all pulling us in different directions, providing versatility, but stretching our nerves.
As next week begins, we can feel warmhearted but self-protective, nurturing new ideas but wary of other people’s motives. Some comment or event reminds us to stay attentive to the ongoing global issues of our time as well as to the continuing journeys of our personal lives as the private Cancer moon opposes Pluto and squares Uranus.
Later in the week our summertime extroversion is encouraged by an outgoing Leo moon. We may get some tricky lessons about how we communicate and listen. Mars retrograde in Scorpio sharpens our rhetoric. But our basic relationships will need us to be responsible this week. No matter how busy we get, we need to be nurturing.
FRIDAY, JUNE 3: Tackle a challenge and learn from the experience; the process may be harder than expected, but it can help us grow and gain confidence. If feeling insecure, don’t test relationships — nurture them instead. There is a talkative, humorous buzz this evening as the moon enters Gemini.
SATURDAY, JUNE 4: An optimistic, nervy, curious, exploratory day brings auspicious chances for fresh connections as the new Gemini moon conjuncts Venus. Enjoy the fresh optimism but don’t veer into overconfidence — stay grounded. Share ideas, network, and keep talking; a new chapter begins tonight.
SUNDAY, JUNE 5: Take a fresh perspective and start a new conversation. Forget trying to concentrate — this is an easily interrupted day. Pay attention to the essentials. Watch a tendency to worry. Our hearts and our hunger reawaken tonight as the moon enters intimate Cancer.
MONDAY, JUNE 6: How can we add beauty to our thoughts, our relationships, and our understanding of the world as the sun conjuncts Venus? Begin a new cycle of the heart. Our feelings may be a little insecure and guarded as the Cancer moon trines intuitive, imaginative Neptune.
TUESDAY, JUNE 7: This morning can be tough but productive as the moon aspects Pluto and Uranus and reminds us of our long-term work and our deepest healing goals. The afternoon brings superficial but manageable problems. Gentle reassurance is needed — if somebody’s defenses are sparked, stand back and send them love from a distance.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 8: A lovely Leo moon brings cheerful competence. Notice an ongoing theme around the effect of words. Take responsibility and repair any damage with honesty and compassion.
THURSDAY, JUNE 9: Meditate for balance and grounding. Sharp words and sharp edges can trip us up as mental Mercury opposes Mars. The afternoon brings more support and camaraderie. Make clear decisions, but do not make unnecessary moves while feeling impulsive.
