June 2: Impulse and Indulgence

June 2: Impulse and Indulgence

The moon is square Jupiter Rx at 3:40 a.m. and moon void of course begins

The moon enters Scorpio at 9:06 a.m. and moon void of course ends

The moon is square Saturn Rx at 11:38 a.m.

The overnight moon-Pluto square rolls into a cardinal square between the waxing Libra moon and expansive Jupiter in Capricorn. This aspect may have the effect of amplifying emotional friction, perhaps in light of the financial and societal challenges of our times.

The day then begins with a potent mood shift as the moon moves into pensive and reflective Scorpio. This shift sets the tone for turning within, to be more contemplative, and to also be more probing and seeking when investigating the sources of facts, and feelings. Later in the morning, the penetrating energies of the Scorpio moon form a triggering square aspect with Saturn in Aquarius. This transit may have some of us feeling limited and confined by responsibilities and rules. There is a restless feeling in the air, which may cause some tension or passing anxiety.


Venus is square Mars at 5:41 p.m.

In the late afternoon, Venus retrograde in Gemini forms a catalyzing square aspect with Mars in empathic Pisces. This aspect may symbolize a clash between our desires and our initiative. There is much that we may want, yet some difficulties may arise when figuring out how to achieve these wants. Alternatively, it could also mean that what we want is being challenged, evaluated, or criticized.

In synastry, the art of comparing two charts, this potent aspect can spark desires and unlikely attractions between two people; a theme that may appear for some of us today. And as Mars amplifies impulsiveness and indulgence, there may also be a confrontation with others about how we are pursuing our wants and desires.


The moon is trine Mercury at 7:41 p.m.

The moon is opposite Uranus at 11:17 p.m.

In the evening, the moon in potent Scorpio shifts to form a water trine with Mercury in emotive Cancer. This aspect supports depth in intimate conversations, and it could present an opportunity to communicate some of the intense feelings that we have brewing inside. Mercury in Cancer adds a nurturing and protective sense to our communications for most of the summer, so this transit is a sign that we might access support when we open up and share today. The late-night opposition between the moon and Uranus hints that we may gain sudden insights through our emotional revelations.
