June 18: Emotionally courageous

June 18: Emotionally courageous

The moon is sextile Mars at 2:16 a.m.

The moon is trine Pluto at 3:01 a.m.

The moon is trine Jupiter at 5:02 a.m., and moon void of course begins

In the very early morning, the moon in Taurus forms a collaborative sextile aspect with Mars in receptive Pisces. This sextile sets a tone for feeling emotionally courageous and can support being firm and assertive with our expression without being hurtful. This aspect happens while many of us are sleeping, so it may occur as an internal awakening or integration that happens in our dream state.

Shortly after, the moon forms an earth trine with Pluto, tapping into deep soul symbolism and potent emotions. The moon then shifts to form an earth trine aspect with Jupiter, which opens the day on a friendly, optimistic note. We may awake feeling more generous and are more able to express our highest ideals through gestures of emotional generosity.

The moon then goes void of course until the afternoon, making this a good time for tying up loose ends, instead of starting anything new.


The moon enters Gemini at 2:00 p.m., and moon void of course ends

The moon is trine Saturn at 3:34 p.m.

Mars is sextile Pluto at 4:08 p.m.

In the mid-afternoon, the moon leaves earthy and grounded Taurus to enter the speedy, airy territory of Gemini. This shift activates lunar energies that are more outwardly propelling and can enable urges to process our inner dialogue externally with others. The moon void of course also ends, and the late afternoon is suitable for planting seeds and signing agreements.

Later in the afternoon, the moon forms an air trine with Saturn in intellectual Aquarius. The Gemini lunar energies are kinetic, social, and talkative. They may tend to disperse our energy, yet this trine with Saturn helps to focus, center, and channel our intentions. This stabilizing air trine conducts the operating frequencies of the moment in a clear, discerning, and constructive direction.

Mars in Pisces then forms a potent sextile aspect with Pluto in Capricorn, which has the potential to be somewhat volatile. This aspect brings drive and initiative in contact with hidden truths and soul transformation. It could be a time for rooting out mysteries and secrets and bringing these to light. It could represent an investigation or inquiry on a collective level in our society, or an activity that we are engaging in when looking within ourselves.
