June 30: Radical new conversations

June 30: Radical new conversations

The moon is trine the sun at 7:20 a.m.

The moon is opposite Uranus at 8:21 a.m.

The moon is trine Mercury at 8:39 a.m.

The sun is square Chiron at 10:48 a.m.

The last day of June is full of cosmic transits. The morning begins with a string of lunar aspects, starting with the moon in potent Scorpio, forming a water trine with the sun in Cancer. This trine marks the waxing gibbous phase of the lunar cycle, which is only four days away from the full moon. Emotions and perceptions are working in psychic harmony now, helping us feel exceptionally intuitive and motivated.

The moon then forms an opposition with innovative Uranus in Taurus, creating a restless feeling and an urge to break out of our routines. The potent Scorpio moon then moves into a water trine aspect with Mercury in nurturing Cancer, helping to facilitate healing and therapeutic conversations.

Shortly after, the sun in protective Cancer forms a catalyzing square aspect with Chiron in bold Aries. This square brings the emotive perceptions of the moment into contact with the theme of inner healing of psychic wounds. Some of us might need to make crucial decisions today that may feel a bit uncomfortable at first but may lead to long-term growth and resiliency.

Mercury is sextile Uranus at 3:12 p.m.

In the afternoon, Mercury in sensitive Cancer forms a collaborative sextile aspect with innovative Uranus in grounded Taurus. This sextile is a potentially significant and exciting aspect that may stimulate radical new conversations and discoveries. These may lead to personal insights or emotional breakthroughs or could coincide with new medical or technological developments today. These may solve some of the material and social problems we are collectively dealing with now. At the very least, this planetary aspect may trigger new perspectives on how to tackle our current challenges.


Mercury is conjunct the sun at 7:53 p.m.

The sun is sextile Uranus at 11:07 p.m.

By evening, Mercury in caring Cancer moves into the heart of the sun, forming an exact conjunction. Classically, this aspect was called “cazimi,” an Arabic word for heart. When Mercury is in the center of the sun, it is believed to be in a protected position. While Mercury is in this conjunction, it is invisible to us while engulfed in the sun’s glow. This time of an “invisible” Mercury symbolizes a mysterious passage for the messenger planet, which is a time for everyone to clarify and refine their thoughts and intentions. The place where this “cazimi” happens in your birth chart represents a new start in the area of life Cancer indicates. For those who have cardinal rising signs, this sun/Mercury conjunction will symbolize renewal in yourself, home, relationship, or career.

The Cancer sun then forms a sextile aspect with Uranus in Taurus, bringing conscious perceptions and collective energies into harmony with the radical changes of our times. In light of the Mercury/Uranus sextile from earlier today, this nighttime aspect further emphasizes the possibility for new inventions, breakthroughs, and new ideas emerging now to help change our world for the better.
