June 15: Uncanny Feelings
The moon is square Pluto at 3:22 p.m.
The moon is sextile the sun at 5:11 p.m.
The moon is square Jupiter at 5:49 p.m., and moon void of course begins
In the late afternoon, the impulsive Aries moon forms an edgy square aspect with subterranean Pluto in Capricorn. This tense aspect may represent a turning point for some of us, a fleeting, but powerful resurgence of hidden traumas or defenses from within the psyche. The moon/Pluto square has a raw, immediate charge, that makes what was out of reach come into the center of our awareness.
It is a temporary but potentially uncomfortable passage, especially for those with many cardinal placements in their birth charts. It may result in an uncanny feeling that lingers for a while as we carry on with the day. If it brings up anything particularly painful for anyone, it’s essential to seek support from a friend or therapist if needed.
Later on, the Aries moon shifts into a supportive and positive sextile aspect with the sun in lively Gemini. This sextile marks the waning crescent phase of the lunar cycle and represents a day of emotional energies blending with conscious perceptions. The waning crescent phase is the last burst of energy near the end of the lunar cycle, where we focus on wrapping up the lessons of the month and are clearing the way for the new cycle to begin. This month’s new moon occurs on the summer solstice and happens to be a solar eclipse.
Shortly after, the moon forms a catalyzing square aspect with Jupiter in Capricorn. Even though the square aspect is usually stimulating and challenging, when it occurs between the moon and Jupiter, it tends to have an amplifying effect on our emotions. Our expressions may be a little more dramatic and hyperbolic, making us feel more restless and inclined to indulge. Since the lunar energies are getting lower, and the moon void of course has begun, it may be a good time to just relax and let go of any plan or structure for now.
