This weekend we’re coming off of the bright and fiery Summer Solstice energy and into the subjective, emotional waters of Friday’s New Moon in Cancer. We also have some positive intensity and sexual tension building in our relationships this weekend with sensual Venus in harmonious aspect with the planetary ruler of sex, death and transformation. After that we’ll round out the weekend with a loving and compassionate mindset thanks to the deep, intuitive and emotionally vulnerable communications brought on by Mercury in Cancer as the messenger planet comes into a harmonious trine with mystical Neptune.
Friday (6/23): The New Moon in Cancer comes exact tonight at 7:31pm MST. T he New Moon is the time each month when the Sun and Moon come into alignment in an exact conjunction. This unification of the two luminaries marks a point in time in which our subjective experience merges with our physical reality, producing an energy ripe for intention setting and manifestation. On Friday night, the New Moon in Cancer will give us a chance for a fresh start and new beginnings as we reflect upon our own personal comfort zones.
Saturday (6/24): Venus in its earthy, sensual home sign of Taurus will be making a harmonious trine over to Pluto in Capricorn, bringing about positive intensity and transformation in our most intimate relationships. This is a highly sexual energy and is excellent for a romantic night in with a lover or spouse. Venus and Pluto are both planets that have influence over our finances, especially in the signs of luxury and capitalism, indicating that today may bring about an easement of tense financial situations, especially those involving debt or joint finances with a partner.
Sunday (6/25): Mars in Cancer comes into a tense aspect with Jupiter in Libra today, indicating the potential for emotionally-charged arguments or actions born out of negative emotions that disrupt our ability to expand on beauty, balance and harmony in the Libra area of our lives and charts (click here to learn about the influence of Jupiter in Libra in your personal chart!).
Mercury in Cancer comes into a beautiful and harmonious trine with Neptune in Pisces today, bringing deep, emotionally charged communications that help move us into a more compassionate mindset for the week ahead. This aspect helps us to see more clearly behind the veil of illusion to understand our own unconscious motivations as well as the subjective experience of those around us. This is an excellent energy for connecting with people we love, writing creatively, or simply spending time in blissful solitude and contemplation.
That’s all for this week! Be sure to check back on Sunday for the weekday forecast. Have a beautiful weekend! ☺
