June 8: Amplified Creativity and Meditative States

June 8: Amplified Creativity and Meditative States

The moon is sextile Neptune at 1:25 a.m.

The moon is conjunct Pluto at 8:01 a.m.

The moon is conjunct Jupiter at 11:06 a.m., and moon void of course begins

The very early hours of Monday morning hold heightened psychic activity with the moon in Capricorn forming a sextile with Neptune in empathic Pisces. When Capricorn, as an archetype, connects with Pisces, it awakens the intuitive and aquatic side of the Sea-Goat’s nature.

Since this is happening while most of us are sleeping, this aspect may play out on the dreamscape as potent soul symbolism. It’s a time of amplified creativity, meditative states, and emotional rapport with others. These dreamy effects may linger as the day begins.

After dawn, the moon begins its day of conjunctions with three massive planetary players in this year’s paradigm-shifting astrology. First off, the reserved Capricorn moon joins Pluto, perhaps triggering some intense emotional experiences. This conjunction may bring deeper psychological issues and patterns up into our awareness. If these emotional states become overwhelming or depressive, it could be an excellent day to explore talk or art therapy and seek support.

This aspect may bring the sober and sentimental mood of the moment into phase with the transformative realities of our times. And because the moon is now void for several hours, it’s an excellent opportunity to be contemplative, rather than striving to be productive.

The moon enters Aquarius at 5:54 p.m., and moon void of course ends

The lunar mood shifts as the moon moves into airy and intellectual Aquarius in the late afternoon. The moon void of course ends, so the rest of the evening, and tomorrow, open with opportunities to make fresh starts.

The Aquarian moon sets a more outwardly directed lunar mood than the insular Capricorn moon, yet it is still under Saturn’s reserved rulership. While the tone of the evening may feel lighter and a bit more social, the feeling in the air is still a bit serious.


The moon is conjunct Saturn at 8:17 p.m.

The current yet somewhat serious mood intensifies as the Aquarian moon joins its ruler Saturn in a perfect conjunction this evening. We may be engaging with thoughts about Saturnian topics like laws, rules, and boundaries. This planetary configuration is a symbolic mirror of the themes of social distancing and isolation that are active in the world, and we may now be sitting with the feelings these restrictions bring up for us now.
