June 1: Bringing Emotional and Intellectual Energy Into Harmony

The moon is trine the sun at 2:28 a.m.

The moon is trine Venus at 8:20 a.m.

The first day of June opens with the peaceable Libra moon forming two early morning air trines. The first trine of the day is with the sun in curious and communicative Gemini, bringing emotional and intellectual energy into harmony. This air trine between the moon and sun forms the waxing gibbous phase of the lunar cycle, when vitality and moods are very active and engaging. It’s an excellent time to communicate and connect, as energy increases toward the full moon at the end of the week. We may feel that we have much to say now and are ready to express and share.

Later in the morning, the Libran moon forms an air trine with its planetary ruler, Venus, in Gemini. This aspect is a supportive and positive connection, which brings the light and upbeat feelings of the moment into harmony with creativity and matters of the heart. Venus is retrograde, meaning this could be an excellent opportunity to re-open a balanced and diplomatic conversation with someone dear to reconnect or mend fences if needed.


The moon is square Pluto Rx at 12:22 a.m.

Just after midnight, the moon in Libra forms a tense square aspect with Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. This transit is active when many of us are sleeping, so it may not be experienced or felt consciously. It may, however, bring up potent dream imagery that stirs up concerns or fears about the challenges of our times. Pluto, as a planetary force, represents everything that is hidden in the unconscious realm. When the moon connects with the underground themes of this planet, it can make us more aware of our uneasy feelings brewing below the surface. Though this aspect is fleeting, it does set the stage for some of the edgy aspects and angsty moods of tomorrow.
