Get the Astrological Edge for the Week of June 2nd!
From T-squares to Grand Trines there is a lot of conflicting energy this week as we are pulled between the outer world and our inner emotions, between the big stage and cosy domesticity. What’s a girl (or guy) to do? Read on…
Watch Out for Melodrama It will seem like the entire world is competing for a Daytime Emmy on the 2nd and 3rd when the Moon enters that old Diva, Aries, and conjuncts temper-tantrum Uranus while forming a T-square to manipulative Pluto and conniving Mercury. Emotions run high as everyone fights for their own independence and their place in the spotlight. If you insist on chewing up all the scenery, don’t be surprised if the production closes down.
Get Intimate and Recharged Loving Venus enters poetic, sensitive Cancer late on the 2nd, and this week will prove much more delightful if you turn your sights away from worldly success and towards bonding with family and live-in loves. Mercury and Venus form an extremely rare and harmonious trine to Neptune and Saturn on the 3rd and 7th – so rare that the next time these planets align in this way, in these signs, will be in 2515! Get away from the hustle and bustle and cuddle up with your sweetie at home to reconnect with the inner-poetry of existence.
Fuel Your Self-Esteem Through Romance The Moon enters confident Taurus on the 4th and forms a sextile to both dreamy Neptune and starry-eyed Venus. Romantic vibes carry an added boost of self-respect, so when lovers turn controlling or severe when Saturn opposes the Moon late on the 4th, you will be able to brush off their sternness without internalizing it.
Get Social Even if Venus, Mercury, Saturn and Neptune are all drawing us into our inner cocoon, Mars, the Sun, and Jupiter are urging us to keep in touch. With the Moon in Gemini in the 7th and 8th, this is a great time to get caught up on emails, facebook, and phone calls.
Stop Hashing Out the Past, Start Talking Up the Future Keep things light and cheery on the 7th when the emotionally touchy Moon conjuncts aggressive Mars and squares private Neptune, which also turns retrograde on this day. People may be itching to drag up things from the past, but instead of gaining harmony, there is the much greater risk of bullying, which will only lead to deeper emotional suppression. The New Moon on the 8th, however, sends auspicious vibes to all new contacts. This is a great time to reach out and form new bonds: send out your resume, make a pitch, ask someone new out for a date.
Plot Your Revenge on the 8th when a T-Square forms between strategic Mercury, volatile Uranus, and control freak Pluto. With everyone shuffling willy-nilly for pole position, it may be hard to figure out your place in the crowd, but those who take the time to create a cunning plan will be the ones who ultimately win the race.
