STARGAZING —Week of June 5th through June 11th,2017

Jun 3, 2017 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing

On Sunday morning, the energetic Sun challenges spiritual Neptune. On one level, you are stimulated to open your intuition. On another level, you may want to sleep in. Also on Sunday, Mars moves into Cancer until July 20. This is a bit of an uncomfortable combination, but it can help you with home projects. Planning a trip to the beach is great with this aspect. Mars in Cancer can have you feeling grouchy and persnickety, so please try to practice patience with family members.

The early workweek is under a focused Scorpio moon. You can accomplish a lot if you put your mind to it. Tuesday is the shifting day this week. Venus enters Taurus for the rest of the month. Taurus likes sensual pleasures and manifesting its needs and desires. Some go in an artistic direction; others go in a “make money” direction for the rest of this month. Get ready to make plans and move ahead with projects, because Venus and Juno together can bring you many blessings.
Mercury enters one of his favorite signs, Gemini, until June 21st. Get a massage! Mercury in Gemini goes from one quick project to the next. This fast paced energy shines a light on business, social connections, communications and travel through the Summer Solstice.

The Full Moon is on Friday at 19 degrees Sagittarius. It forms a pattern called a T-Square, where you are challenged to put contradictory things together. The full moon is at the top of the “T” shaped pattern and lands very close to Donald Trump’s Gemini Sun and Sagittarius Moon, making him a good person to watch to see how the energies manifest. Things can get a little tricky at this Full Moon because Saturn can put a damper on Sagittarius’ luck. Usually this energy brings completions to projects, but with Saturn’s presence, you can expect slow downs, obstacles and delays.

Ideally, Gemini wants projects to move quickly and Sagittarius wants to do them in a big way. But the energy is preparing for the late August eclipse, which sweeps across the United States, so expect delays and re-alignments before that time. Remember,, patience and persistence conquers all things!

You can make progress on big projects now if you are willing to break them down into smaller, more manageable pieces. Neptune serves as the base leg of the “T” square, challenging you to open to a higher vision. Neptune bursts illusions and opens your intuition to spiritual truth, or it can have you doing escapist behavior. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to sneak away for a short trip, even if it is just a day trip into nature. Expansive Jupiter ends his retrograde cycle this week. Lucky Jupiter turning direct brings a time for your hopes and dreams to come out of the shadows of your mind and enter the world for the first time since February. In the weeks ahead, the pace will increase and projects and plans put on hold will begin to move faster. This change could also bring you travel abroad or a new partnership from foreign lands.

On Saturday, the moon moves into Capricorn, asking you to accomplish something tangible. In the early afternoon the Moon makes a harmonious trine to Venus, bringing a soft and gentle energy. Work in the morning and treat yourself to something sensual or luxurious in the afternoon.

Sunday’s Capricorn Moon tends to be serious and responsible, but there is always room for Capricorn’s dry humor. Meditate or do something for your spiritual well being Sunday morning while psychic Neptune is active. You could also have some pre-cognitive dreams so be sure to keep a journal.
