We Are All Human -- Astrology Forecast for Mon., June 19th - Sun., June 25th, 2017

Please note that all times given below are Eastern Daylight Savings Time -- to change the listed times to your own timezone, I recommend clicking here for the time and date converter

Last week was a combination of going with the flow, listening to my energy levels, and moving things forward. How was it for you?

This week's headline items: the beginning of the week sees lots of planetary aspects and movements... Chiron begins its station on Monday; on Tuesday evening, the Balsamic Moon phase begins; a few hours later, the Sun moves into Cancer, marking the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere; another few hours after that, Mercury follows the Sun into Cancer. As for the rest of the week, the New Moon in Cancer becomes exact on Friday late evening -- and of course, Neptune continues its station all week.

There will also be four Moon VoC phases this week: Monday late afternoon (for a little over 2 hours), Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning (for a little over 18.5 hours), Friday afternoon (for almost 3.5 hours), and Sunday afternoon (for almost 3.5 hours).

Monday (June 19th): the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries until 5:53pm EDT. Life is an adventure, we're more open to new ideas, and have great enthusiasm for new projects. Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly, and act immediately. 

Our independence and dynamism are important to us right now, so we may find it hard to be disciplined or accept advice at this time; in general, our responses to others tend to be more assertive or even aggressive. If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym, or finding other ways to burn off the body's excess energy. 

Monday morning, a somewhat challenging Venus/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 7:49am EDT. We started feeling this aspect build from Sunday on; it will be strong until Tuesday. This aspect operates more on an internal level. We feel uneasy about something, almost awkward -- and we need to make a choice. An inner awareness needs to be developed in order to see what needs adjusting. 

This aspect marks a fork in the road: Will we step onto a practical, peaceful path, enjoying physical beauty, comforts and pleasures? Or will we take the path that increases our understanding of equality in relationships and balance with our surroundings? 

Either way, we can develop a new perspective on how to approach these issues in our one-on-one relationships. Awareness is key with this aspect: What is needed? How can we serve the broader view? 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 12-15 degrees of Taurus or Libra? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Sagittarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius).

Monday At 3:42pm EDT, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for a little over 2 hours, until 5:53pm EDT. Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to connect to people that can enthusiastically support your projects and share with them what you have going on. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. 

Monday at 5:53pm EDT, the Moon moves into steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will journey until Wednesday evening..We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well. In other words: change is not our favorite thing and "rushing things" goes against our grain. What is our favorite thing for the next two days? It's probably, slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses ;-)

Monday evening, a challenging Sun/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 6:26pm EDT.We started feeling this aspect build from last Friday  on; it will be strong until this Friday. This asks us to stretch ourselves and expand from within. We might feel less confident about who we are, and have a hard time projecting a social "front". Our conditioned mind and wounded feelings may be out of harmony with each other. 

As best as you can, take this as an opportunity to make space for feeling vulnerable or emotional without seeing yourself as weak or "less than". It is perfectly ok to have feelings and feel insecure once in a while; as best as you can, bring compassion and love to yourself and others. After all, we are all human…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC) or personal planets in the following: 26-29 degrees of Gemini, Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius or 0-2 degrees of Cancer, Aries, Libra or Capricorn? If so, you will feel the effects of this aspect more strongly than otherwise. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo (the Sun rules Leo).

Also on Monday, Chiron starts to slow down (station) at almost 29 degrees of Pisces as it gets ready for its 5-month retrograde phase. We will feel the effects of its station until July 13th; its energies are more exalted during this period. 

Chiron is the wounded healer; in Pisces, our attention is guided towards our emotional and spiritual wounds. Chiron represents our inner insecurities, those self-conscious and wounded places. Chiron also represents the inner wound of abandonment and our need to "make it on our own".  

We are invited to approach these wounds on a holistic level, to heal them such that others are healed thereby. This is accomplished very simply and naturally when we work with the true beauty and strength of this energy: Compassion. Having compassion for our own wounds heals them and allows healing compassion for the wounds we now see in others. 

What emotional or spiritual sore spots could you acknowledge? What needs your compassion/love? What needs to heal? At a different level, this time could also see an increased emphasis on water as a global and environmental issue. 

Feel free to also watch the mp4-video presentation of our last Forecasting Forum. We talked about the Chiron station in relationship to our own Birth charts. If you want to know how these planetary movements are impacting you personally, click here and add the Monthly Forecasting Forum to your cart ;-)

Those of us with personal planets and points (ASC or MC) in the following:26-29 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius, or 0 degrees of Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn will feel this station more strongly.

Tuesday (June 20th): the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day (see Monday early evening for details).

Tuesday early morning, an opportune Venus/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 4:26am EDT. We started feeling this aspect build from Monday morning on; it will be strong until Wednesday evening. 

This is an opportunity for compassion and kindness in our social interactions. We are more attuned to the subtleties of human interaction, and are more inclined to naturally cooperate with others. We tend to "feel" each other on an energetic level now; a sensitive approach is recommended. 

We also have an opportunity to connect to our values and gifts from intuition, and use our imagination to attract what we want: When you daydream, what would you like to experience? How would it feel?

Remember: opportunities are openings; they aren't necessarily handed to us -- we have to "take" them and make something of them.

Do you have your Ascendent, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 12-16 degrees of Taurus, Pisces, Capricorn or Cancer? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity.This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Pisces (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Neptune rules Pisces).

Tuesday morning, an opportune Mercury/Uranus aspectbecomes exact at 5:30am EDT. We started feeling this aspect build from Monday early morning on; it will be strong until Wednesday. This is an opportunity to connect our thinking and communication to a brighter, more collaborative vision for the future.
 
It also brings an opportunity for insight, novelty and some really unusual conversations. Remember: an opportunity is not automatically given to us; we have to realize it. 

This aspect also brings an opportunity to view things from a different perspective, or put a new spin on "old" thinking. We like to connect in unusual ways; any group activities or brainstorming with like-minded people could generate amazing insights -- this might be a busy time. As best as you can, or want to... stay open to other dimensions ;-) 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 26-29 degrees of Gemini, Aries, Aquarius, Leo or 0 degrees of Cancer, Taurus, Pisces or Virgo? If so, you will be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Virgo, Gemini or Aquarius (Mercury is the ruler of Virgo and Gemini; Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius)

Tuesday early evening, a challenging Mercury/Chiron aspectbecomes exact at 5:01pm EDT. We started feeling this aspect build from Monday early morning on; it will be strong until Thursday. This combination might bring up some insecurities in our verbal, in-person or email interactions. 

That said, this could also be an opportunity for healing; we are energized to move past harsh criticism of ourselves or others, towards more loving and compassionate structures for thinking and communicating. As best as you can, stretch yourself -- and be open to bringing love and understanding to it all (and that includes you) :-) 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point or any personal planets in the following: 26-29 degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or 0-2 degrees of Cancer, Aries, Libra or Capricorn? If so, you are more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo).

Tuesday late evening, the Balsamic Moon phase begins -- when the Moon reaches 17 degrees of Taurus. This lasts until Friday late evening, when the New Moon in Cancer becomes exact (for those of you who are impatiently waiting for my New Moon video, click here). We are being asked to slow down and get quiet, so we can listen to our intuition. 

For some of us, this might be a stretch. As best as you can: stay grounded, take a deep breath and exhale any tensions. Rather than starting something brand-new, put all that energy into completing existing projects or processes. This is also a great time for letting go of whatever no longer serves us. What if you could hear the voice of your inner wisdom? What might it be saying?

Wednesday (June 21st): the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus until 6:44pm EDT (see Monday early evening for details). 

Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning at 12:24am EDT, the Sun changes signs from busy, versatile Gemini to protective, sensitive Cancer. This marks the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere: The Solstices are important turning points twice a year, as they are energetic gateways for the summer or winter season to come through. 
 
The Sun will journey through the sign of Canceruntil July 22nd. With the Sun in Cancer, we look for quality and safety in terms of what we want to create, and what we want to surround ourselves with. We experience life on a deeper, more instinctive level now. We have less interest in what is universal, and more interest in what affects us personally (and what affects the people we care for and love). 

Our being is colored by our emotions, so it might be more challenging to be objective. Family, home and our inner world becomes our focus for the next 30 days.

All this is especially true if you are a Leo or Cancer Sun-sign or Rising-sign. As a Cancer, you will feel a good dose of confidence and playfulness in the next four weeks; as a Leo your energy will move more inwards, focusing on family or your home.

Two minutes after the Sun changes signs, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that last a little over 18.5 hours, until 6:44pm EDT. This is an intuitive time -- use it to transform long-term goals and make realistic financial plans. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Wednesday Day ahead of time ;-)

Wednesday morning at 5:57am EDT, Mercury moves from curious, quick-witted Gemini into protective, nurturing Cancer. It will journey there until July 5th. During this cycle, we are more sensitive to our surroundings, especially when listening and taking in information. 

We also have more sympathy towards the suffering of others. On the other hand, we have less objectivity, as emotions are always involved in our interactions with others; this could also mean we end up taking things more personally than we really need to -- perhaps even to the extent that we start feeling sorry for ourselves. As best as you can, remember to ask yourself: Is this really about me? 

This is particularly true if you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo. You will feel a stronger need to connect to family or the people  in your life that feel familiar and safe. You may also feel the need to talk about the past and work through past conditionings. If you are a Cancer Sun-sign or Rising-sign, you will be more chatty for the next 2 weeks.

Wednesday late morning, a Sun/Mercury alignment in 0 degrees of Cancer becomes exact at 10:14am EDT. We started feeling this aspect build from Monday early morning on; it will be strong until Friday. This aspect indicates a confident mind and an analytical approach to life. Intelligence and communication abilities are strong at this time; however, we may not listen as well as the other speaks -- we might be too busy thinking about what to say next. 

As this alignment takes place in Cancer, we may be particularly sentimental, but it may not always serve us to refer back to the past -- especially the distant past.

We want an active role in communications -- it's very hard for us to passively listen and absorb information right now. What we say or write now has impact, so as best as you can, choose your words wisely. If people hung on your every word, what would you say then? What would you hold back from saying?

Our opinions are strong and our thinking independent -- and we're proud of both -- our egos may therefore get bruised if we don't feel "heard". As best as you can, express yourself fully, knowing that others may have different opinion and that's ok. 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 27-29 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces, Virgo, or 0-3 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries or Libra? If so, you will be more affected by this alignment. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo, Gemini or Virgo (the Sun rules Leo; Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo)

Wednesday at 6:44pm EDT, the Moon moves into chatty, versatile Gemini, where it will be until Friday evening. For the next two days, we like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible. "Busy" feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way... The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead :-) 

Thursday (June 22nd): Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini all day (see Wednesday evening for details). 

Thursday afternoon, comes with a mix of energies. One the one hand, we feel enthusiastic and social, and seek connection on a mental level. On the other hand, we might feel tired or overwhelmed by all the hassle and bustle... As best as you can, give yourself time to rest and do something "non-linear" or creative. 

Thursday is also the last day before the New Moon in Cancer becomes exact, this is a great day to let go of what no longer serves us. As best as you can, avoid jumping the gun: Rather than launching into brand-new endeavors or connections, wait until a couple of days have passed after the New Moon. 

Some of us might feel a little anxious or nervous today: As best as you can, get quiet and go within… Listen to the silence between the sounds… trust... and find peace in the connection with your innermost and truest Self.

Friday (June 23rd): Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini until 6:07pm EDT (see Wednesday evening for details). 

Friday at 2:45pm EDT, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that last almost 6.5 hours, until 6:07pm EDT. If you are awake during this intuitive time, use it as an opportunity to connect with others, exchange information, and move personal projects forward. 

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Friday afternoon/early evening ahead of time ;-)

Friday at 6:07pm EDT, the Moon moves into protective, nurturing Cancer, where it will journey until Sunday evening. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say and therefore our feelings are more easily hurt -- so be kind to yourself and others. Self-Care is key for the next two and half days ;-)

Emotional safety is important to us as well; we like connecting to the familiar and we enjoy nurturing ourselves and others -- home and family call to us, for instance. Make sure though, that your glass is filled before letting others drink from it, otherwise you might start to feel drained and resentful. 

On Friday at 10:31pm EDT, the New Moon becomes exact in almost 3 degree of Cancer; this is the beginning of a new Moon cycle. That this New Moon happens only a few days after the Summer Solstice on June 20th/21st makes it an extra-powerful one for initiating new beginnings that honor our deepest needs and truest selves. Feel free to watch my New Moon video on the subject 

Now, this particular New Moon is also special, because the Moon is at its closest point to the Earth, making this a so-called "SuperMoon".

SuperMoons intensify electromagnetic and gravitational effects (causing higher tides, among other things), and likewise affect our perception of reality. Cancer is the first water sign of the zodiac, as such, it relates to the development of the “emotional body” -- so this Moon cycle will amplify feelings, instincts and needs. 

Our feeling nature has been denied and suppressed for millennia, but we have begun to embrace it more fully -- feelings are an essential source of information about our true needs -- they are a dashboard that tells us what is healthy for us. When we don’t heed the information, we become dependent on others for validation and direction, or get lost in addictions and distractions.

With this New Moon occurring in protective, introverted Cancer, we'll seek to surround ourselves with quality and safety; we can expect anything connected to home, family, real-estate or childhood issues to be heightened in our awareness for the next four weeks.

Ask yourself: What does emotional maturity mean to me? How would I know if I had it? 

Mercury and Mars align with the New Moon in Cancer. This underscores the message of greater connection to our feelings, needs, and sense of inner safety (i.e. to our foundations). We need to develop a better mental understanding of those needs and feelings and take actions that are in alignment with them.

Feelings also give us information about our level of connection to ourselves and others; they show us how aligned (or misaligned) we are with ourselves and our world. Feeling our feelings, honoring them and being with them in a gentle, nurturing way strengthens our relationship with ourselves and ultimately with the outside world.

What have I learned about my relationship to the emotional body? Where could I go even deeper? Where could I be more present, listen more intently? What's my relationship to my feminine, receptive energies? Is there room for more integration? What baby steps could I take to make this happen?

Neptune in Pisces is still stationing -- though now retrograde -- and thus exalted in this New Moon chart, in which it trines Mars in Cancer. 

This combo invites us to trust the energy currents and flow with them, rather than struggle against them. We are invited to release past memories, behaviors or conditioning that no longer serve us -- this in turn provides the opportunity to go from a lower to a higher vibrational place. 

This is an "inside job" -- we must tap into our divine nature from the inside out. For the next four weeks, ask yourself: 

How might intuition stir action and inform my sense of direction? What actions could I take, that would support my deepest desires for a healthy foundation in my life?

How well do I care for my body, mind and Soul? What percentage of my day or week goes towards nurturing myself and my Soul? What might be possible if I spent 5% more time on self-care? What if I spent just 5 minutes connecting to my intuitive knowingness every day?

And of course, if we are to hear the quiet, subtle voice of intuition, we must slow down and cultivate inner peace... It's worth it: that inner compass will never steer us wrong once we know how to read it. 

What is a single, really simple baby-step that I could take towards being a better reader of my inner compass?

Chiron in Pisces is also stationing, in preparation for the retrograde phase that begins on July 1st; it is thus also exalted as it makes a Square to the New Moon. 

This invites us to focus on our personal and collective healing process, as we become more open to feeling our feelings, and begin accepting them for what they are: messengers that help us understand our own motivations better: How could my feelings show me what I am most motivated by?

Stuff may get stirred up in the next four weeks in regards to past wounding, emotional and spiritual insecurities, or childhood traumas. If this is so for you, be kind and compassionate with your shamed inner wounded child, take ownership of those inner childhood wounds. In other words, be a healthy parent to those parts of yourself, and forgive yourself for your triggers and reactivity. 

Ask yourself: If "Love" was the most powerful remedy, how could I give that medicine to myself when I encounter my own wounding/triggers or insecurities? What could an extra dose of compassion and forgiveness toward my flaws and sensitivities do for me?

Feel free to also watch the mp4-video presentation of our last Forecasting Forum. We talked about the Neptune & Chiron station in relationship to our own Birth charts. If you want to know how these planetary movements are impacting you personally, click here and add the Monthly Forecasting Forum to your cart ;-)

Pluto in Capricorn opposes Mars in Cancer -- and they both square Jupiter in Libra, forming a T-square that gives us the message that we must dig deeper into our feeling body and allow "old" fears and suppressed feelings to come to the surface. If we are able to do this, we have the chance to deal with them consciously and embrace them fully -- especially feelings of anger and frustration.

This "content" might show up in interactions with others; if so, do your best to see this as a gift to you -- if nothing else, this may finally have you looking at something that you haven't dealt with for a long time, perhaps ever.

Ask yourself: What is draining my life-force because I'm afraid to embrace it or face it? What drains me in defending against it?

This also challenges us to assert ourselves and communicate our needs and desires from a place of open-hearted vulnerability and honesty. The better we can do this, the better our chance of creating win-win situations -- this is only possible when we honor others without neglecting our own selves.

True empowerment comes from being emotionally authentic and passionate about who we are and what we do. How else could we achieve this without being willing to feel all our feelings while keeping our hearts wide open -- in particular the "uncomfortable" feelings! It can be so easy to project these onto others through blaming, accusing, etc... But this just hands our power over to others -- and imagine the impact of that over the long-term! 

As best as you can, also be aware of impulsive actions/reactions -- those will not make the feelings go away, but simply fuel the fire -- instead, take the time to process your feelings before taking actions.

On the flip side, much the same can be said of refusing to feel our feelings at all, or trying to intellectualize them away (which is the next best thing to not feeling them). The messages we received at an early age can tell us a lot about how we deal with our feelings now. 

Ask yourself: How am I handling my feelings? My needs? Am I honest about my feelings and needs? How does family play into this? For the next four weeks, observe what feels empowering (uplifting) and disempowering (draining). 

To sum it all up: For the next four weeks, this New Moon will be reminding us that to be fully alive, we must stretch and grow. This can be temporarily scary and uncomfortable, even when the “familiar” we are letting go of is mostly old belief systems that are keeping us small and less alive. 

To counter the scary and uncomfortable parts, do your best to nurture yourself every single day! Be the healthy parent to your inner baby (i.e. your pre-verbal self). The world actually needs people that know how to nurture themselves, people who honor their feeling-body, people with a healthy center who follow their inner compass! Also feel free to watch my New Moon video on the subject 

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 1-5 degrees of Cancer, Aries, Libra or Capricorn? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month's Moon cycle. Intentions are best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact -- and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase. So this month, the best time to set intentions would be any time between 10:31pm EDT on Friday evening (June 23rd) until 2:44pm EDT on Sunday afternoon (June 25th); and then again from 6:06pm EDT until 10:31pm EDT, also on Sunday.

Saturday (June 24th): the Moon remains in protective, nurturing Cancer all day (see Friday evening for more details). 

Saturday morning, a harmonious Venus/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 4:59am EDT. We started feeling this aspect build from Wednesday morning on; it will be strong until next week Monday night (June 26th). This aspect brings a fruitful and rewarding period in our lives. We experience new depths of intimacy (with an existing or new partner), we learn to appreciate the important people in our lives, and our value system transforms and evolves. 

This is likely an excellent period for finances as well. Work we've done might pay off, and we are able to manage our finances better, with more attention to detail, planning and strategy -- as well as the elimination of anything that no longer serves us. We might renew a commitment, or bring new, deeper and more intimate energy into a relationship under the influence of this aspect. 

Our sexual lives might get a real boost now, as we tend to want to connect on a deeper level. We might find ourselves strongly attracted to someone, almost to the point of obsession. If this aspect connects with any of your personal planets, you might just meet the "love of your life".  

One thing is for sure -- relationships experienced now are bound to be unforgettable. While this transit tends to signal new or strengthened relationships, any relationship that ends during this cycle may leave us feeling liberated. What are you feeling drawn to on a deep instinctual level? What deep desires are surfacing? What values can you no longer compromise on?

Those of us who have their Ascendent (or personal planets) in 15-22 degrees of Taurus, Capricorn or Virgo will be most blessed by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Scorpio (Venus being the ruler of Taurus and Libra, while Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio)

Sunday (June 25th): the Moon remains in protective, nurturing Cancer until 6:06pm EDT (see Friday evening for more details). 

Sunday very early morning, a challenging Mars/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 2:07am EDT. We started feeling this aspect build from Tuesday on; it will be strong until next week Thursday (June 29th). This aspect is an opportunity to grow by stretching between two poles: 

On the one hand, an emotional impulse draws us to connect to (or protect) what is near and dear to us....

On the other hand, we also feel drawn to partnerships and what we could learn from them -- but we want to find win-win scenarios before we make a move.
 
Here's the question: How might protecting the familiar actually help us expand our relationships?  

We seek excitement and growth; we may not be satisfied with how things are -- we feel an inner restlessness which demands freedom and "space" but doesn't necessarily return the favor.
 
With this position, we never feel that we have enough experiences, knowledge, connections, etc. -- it's difficult knowing when to stop. If you can, pause and reflect: this will help with that feeling that you can't get enough, no matter what you do. If we're going to get tripped up here, it would be because we don't know when to stop (or say no).

That said: we needn't expect to feel tormented -- in fact, this is usually a playful and humorous time -- lots of joking around (including practical jokes) smiles, laughter. The key to this aspect is to connect our desire for more emotional safety or a stronger foundation, to our quest for truthful yet harmonious partnerships, and a balanced way of life...
 
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 10-17 degrees of  Cancer, Libra, Aries or Capricorn ? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries or Sagittarius  (Mars is the ruler of Aries, Jupiter of Sagittarius).

Sunday at 2:44pm EDT, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that last almost 6.5 hours, until 6:06pm EDT. Use this intuitive time to make adjustments and (as best as you can) find creative solutions to seemingly insoluble situations. Make space both for going after personal projects that you feel passionate about and for taking care of emotional or family issues. 
 
 As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Sunday afternoon/early evening ahead of time ;-)

Sunday at 6:06pm EDT, the Moon moves into fun and attention-loving Leo, where it will journey until Tuesday evening. We may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising. We all love to be admired -- or at the very least acknowledged -- for our greatness :-) 

So hand out some compliments -- let people know how proud you are of them, tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things... be honest and authentic, as best you can. Fun, games and romance are a big part of this energy as well. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones. 

If there are no "outer children" around, how about getting in touch with your "inner child" -- it's definitely easier for the next two days. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you let out a tiny squeak, just thinking of it? 

A head's up for next Monday (June 26th): the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo all day (see Sunday evening for details). Very early morning, a harmonious Mars/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 2:18am EDT. We started feeling this aspect build from Wednesday on; it will be strong until next week Friday. More about all the details in next week’s forecast ;-) 

One More Announcement:
