PoLLen driFts on the Air, along with a buzz of communicative chatter. The sun and Venus conjunct in Gemini and bring out the sociable poet in people. This Gemini buzz can ease conversations at summer festivals or over dinner. We can make new acquaintances easily and entertain fresh ideas.
But underneath this we are doing some deeper work. Mars retrograded back into Scorpio (through the end of August), which can swirl the dark corners of our psyches and bring out an old obsession, a strange fear, or streaks of possessive territoriality. Between the Gemini mental activity running circles in our minds and Mars in Scorpio stirring the depths of our psyche, we could enter the worry Olympics if we let ourselves go there.
A lightweight social banter and buzz lubricates most of our interactions, but when we need to be alone, we’ll need to be alone — now.
Over the weekend we may feel pulled between our social life and the chores we need to do under an industrious Virgo. This tension can leave us a little edgy, but it can help us bond while we garden or investigate some common interest together as the moon conjuncts expansive Jupiter in Virgo.
Friendliness and summer romance could blossom on Sunday and early next week under a softening and sociable Libra moon as romantic Venus and the energizing sun form a pleasant sextile with electrical Uranus — an aspect that gently encourages us to reach out of our comfort zone and make positive changes.
The week finishes on a more focused, if truculent, note — we can get a lot done, but may get a little twitchy in the process as the Scorpio moon conjuncts Mars. Let’s give people some extra room and focus on our own work.
FridAy, June 10: Our conscience can be a real nag. We feel wound up — caught between a fluttering social excitement and the drone of responsibilities. Tonight the mood is less realistic but more open.
sAturdAy, June 11: Chores beckon this morning as the moon squares Saturn. The mood lightens toward noon; we want to improve something as the moon conjuncts Jupiter in Virgo. Let’s not overload one another with helpful suggestions.
sundAy, June 12: Keep heart and mind open as Venus sextiles Uranus. Let go of unproductive emotional attachments. Tonight, have a dinner party as the moon enters sociable Libra and Mercury enters verbal Gemini — and our minds buzz.
MondAy, June 13: After a slow morning, our minds get busy and wires buzz. Our hearts can feel sensitive and want to reclaim attachments we’ve recently released, but we can redirect our focus.
tuesdAy, June 14: Make stress adjustments to work and family. We’re uncomfortable continuing something that isn’t working.
WednesdAy, June 15: We get snarly as the moon enters intense and introverted Scorpio. While this aspect sharpens our focus and helps us concentrate on work we’ve been too distracted to deal with, something can push our buttons and nudge us to change our patterns and heal an old pain.
thursdAy, June 16: Adapt, integrate, and get things done. We may be unusually open and more aware of problems than possibilities — which we need to consciously ferret out.
