June 27-July 3
New moon in Cancer.
All dates and times are CET1.
Monday, June 28
Mars sextile Saturn, Neptune stations retrograde, and the moon enters Cancer.
Mars in Aries connects with Saturn (retrograde) in Aquarius.
At 00:28 Mars harmonizes with Saturn, setting up opportunities to collaborate on long-term projects. Problems are resolved intuitively. It’s like “defensive driving”: the safest direction puts you first.
Neptune retrograde begins at 25º Pisces.
Neptune, the planet of projection, spiritualism, and transcendence, begins its retrograde at 09:54. This means it’s sitting still in the sky. When outer planets station retrograde or direct, their presence is more obvious. Sensitivity to trendiness and fads is increased. There can be a sense of embarrassment from having jumped onto a bandwagon, or having misunderstood the assignment. Decreased tolerance to substances and extra sensitivity to light, sound, smell.
The moon enters Cancer.
The moon enters its home sign cancer at 13:53, where there will be a new moon.
Wednesday, June 29
Sun square Jupiter, Venus sextile Jupiter, new moon in Cancer.
The sun in Cancer clashes with Jupiter in Aries.
At 02:59 the sun clashes with Jupiter, changing understanding and worldview. Minds are being shaped by new perspectives. Philosophical debates.
Venus in Gemini connects with Jupiter in Aries.
At 05:51 Venus connects with Jupiter. Harmony in relationships. Teaching through love. An ability to understand and accept others. Peacemaking.
New moon in Cancer 7º23’.
The new moon in Cancer is exact at 04:52, square Jupiter in Aries, which is at 7º19’. The chart of a new moon can illustrate the atmosphere of the coming lunar month— from June 29 to July 28, the day of the next new moon. It’s a new beginning. Beginnings are always rife with uncertainty, but whatever starting now simply sits right. It’s not going to happen without effort, curiosity, and a sense of adventure.
Friday, July 1
The moon enters Leo.
July begins with the moon in Leo from 02:39. The moon in Leo wants to be seen, and it wants to see people, too. It’s the moon of wanting to connect to “the people”. It’s why Lana Del Rey said it tastes like Pepsi, not Coke.
Saturday, July 2
Mars square Pluto, Mercury trine Saturn, Mercury square Neptune.
Mars in Aries clashes with Pluto in Capricorn.
Action planet Mars clashes with power planet Pluto at 04:13. A big battle is being fought. How can you actively make changes that keep peace, or that end cycles of violence, hatred, and pain? How does one stop greed and corruption, really?
Mercury in Gemini harmonizes with Saturn in Aquarius.
At 12:38 Mercury and Saturn form a trine between two air signs. There’s an understanding and even acceptance that things just are the way they are. There’s an ability to work around or even tweak certain rules. Jumping the fence, finding the loophole. Finesse. Skill that has been learned through discipline and focus, applied with ease.
Mercury in Gemini clashes with Neptune in Pisces.
At 22:52 Mercury clashes with Neptune, the planet of illusions. This can be confusing since people will be saying many different things at once. Conversations will need to be worked out in order to synthesize a core meaning. Expression is always duplicitous— there’s the listener and the speaker— but here there is a meta-narrative, a superego that is distorting the way that the words come out.
Sunday, July 3
The moon enters Virgo.
At 14:31 the moon enters grounded earth sign Virgo. There is an ability to absorb information and to integrate conflicting ideas in a way that feels true, at least on a subjective level. Attention to the fine details of health and habits can bring healing, or nervousness.
