June 19: Beautify our Surroundings

The moon is conjunct Venus at 1:40 a.m.

The moon is sextile Chiron at 7:49 a.m.

In the wee hours, the moon in lively Gemini forms a conjunction with Venus. This aspect supports a social, curious, and creative mood. Many of us will be sleeping as it occurs, but its effects may linger in the morning, inspiring us to nurture ourselves and others and to beautify our surroundings.

Some of us may feel drawn to organize and decorate our home, and this may be a time of merely feeling good. This conjunction can take shape in wanting to beautify ourselves, adorning our bodies with beautiful fabrics and accessories, just for fun. It may also be a time for seeking affection, attraction, and expressing what is in our hearts.

The day begins with the moon in kinetic Gemini forming a collaborative sextile aspect with Chiron, the asteroid of the wounded healer, in fiery Aries. The good feeling of the day, with its focus on self-care and loving connections, has a profound healing effect on our ongoing wounds.

Mars is sextile Jupiter at 12:56 a.m.

Overnight, Mars in receptive Pisces forms a supportive sextile connection with expansive Jupiter in pragmatic Capricorn. This melding of initiative with this year’s themes of gradual, sustainable growth may set new health and economic initiatives in motion. Since Mars is in a reflective water sign, and Jupiter is retrograde, these initiatives may be cautious and gradual, but represent tentative moves forward.

This aspect may also represent making decisions about the movement and distribution of personal and collective resources, and some of us may be feeling cautiously optimistic about our finances. This sextile potentially brings out the highest expression of these two planets and directs their chemistry toward the protection of the vulnerable in our communities.
