June 22: Spirituality and the Collective
The moon is trine Neptune at 1:22 p.m.
The first significant aspect of the moon’s day comes in the form of a powerful water trine between the new waxing moon in Cancer and ethereal Neptune in empathic Pisces. The astrological themes of the weekend were centered around healing, compassion, and restoration, so this morning’s trine may symbolize that many of us are feeling more connected to spirituality and the collective.
Psychic forces are strong, making this a good day to seek an astrology or Tarot reading or to consult our oracles. The general mood is very insular and protective, and energies are still likely to be slow for everyone, so do not feel guilty about continuing to rest, reflect, and restore.
The moon is opposite Pluto at 7:19 p.m.
The moon is opposite Jupiter at 8:29 p.m.
Neptune goes retrograde at 9:31 p.m.
By the evening, the moon in emotive Cancer moves into an opposition with Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn. First, there may be a sense of deep, hidden emotions, or buried truths coming to light as potent lunar forces activate subterranean Pluto.
Shortly after, this lunar opposition shifts to engage Jupiter, opening up and amplifying emotional expression. This latter opposition may activate some cautious optimism, and may also connect us to our sense of highest values. Jupiter, now retrograde in conservational Capricorn, is teaching us to be resourceful and patient this year, and this opposition with the nurturing moon may help us feel and express gratitude for what we have preserved and achieved.
Later on, Neptune in dreamy Pisces quietly goes retrograde. Neptune is a very slow-moving planet, which goes retrograde often, so this planetary shift in direction may not be apparent. Like deep oceanic psychic waves, Neptune is slowly tapping us all into the mysterious unfolding of the universe, which is a lifelong process. While Neptune is retrograde until November 28, we may be retreading over the same spiritual ground to contemplate and integrate new insights and discoveries.
The moon is trine Mars at 12:20 a.m., and moon void of course begins
Just after midnight, the moon in protective Cancer forms a water trine with driven Mars in soulful Pisces. Since this aspect happens when many of us are sleeping, it may play out in our dreams. We may wake tomorrow with a lingering sense of intense emotional conviction, and a deeper trust in our intuition to guide us through life.
