It’s looking to be a busy week! We kick off our Monday morning with the Moon waxing in fiery Leo, giving us an extra-fresh start this week as we come out of the relatively mellow energy of the New Moon in Cancer, which kicked off our weekend on Friday night. Mercury will be making many connections throughout the week as well, indicating that time will likely fly by us rather quickly and our minds will be busy with lots of planning, strategizing and office chatter. Mid-week things heat up a bit with Mercury coming into a dynamic conjunction with Mars, the planet of action and war, followed by an opposition to Pluto, the planet of intensity, death and rebirth. At the very least, your work week should be anything but boring. ;)
Monday (6/26): No major planetary aspects today. The Moon is waxing in the expressive, heart-centered sign of Leo.
Tuesday (6/27): Mercury in Cancer makes a challenging aspect to Jupiter, indicating a clash between our inner dialogue and our more expansive beliefs. Today we may be more inclined to allow our emotions to cloud our thinking and too much focus on the details can cause us to lose sight of the bigger picture. On the flip side, some of us may become overly optimistic causing us to go “all in” without thinking things through.
Exaggerated optimism is even more likely to be the case with Mercury coming into a harmonious trine with idealistic Neptune, causing us to feel much more loving and compassionate with the potential for delusional thinking and detachment from what’s real. While this aspect can feel quite pleasant and give us a much-needed break from the harsh effects of reality, it is important to remain grounded and realistic as much as possible, especially when it comes to making important decisions at the start of this week.
Wednesday (6/28): We have some very intense energy brewing today with Mercury conjunct Mars in Cancer! This energy brings mental frustration and intense, emotionally charged communications. People will be more inclined to speak and act more impulsively today, without fully thinking things through. The combination of Mercury and Mars may increase our risk of accidents and makes people more prone to violent thoughts and angry outbursts! This is especially true for Mercury and Mars ruled signs (Aries, Gemini, Virgo, and Scorpio) as well as for those of us with a lot of Cancer energy in our charts. On the positive side, this energy is excellent for motivating us to initiate new things and is great for kick-starting new projects of any kind! Our minds can become much sharper under this influence and, in the sign of Cancer, our thoughts can become more connected to our intuitive processes as well!
Thursday (6/29): Mercury in watery, emotional Cancer begins to come off of its conjunction with fiery and willful Mars and into opposition with deeply transformative Pluto. Mercury in opposition to Pluto brings an extra layer of intensity to our thoughts and communications. Our words can become more focused and intense, and our minds allow us to see through many veils. It becomes much harder to be deceived under this influence, as Pluto is well known for cutting through the BS and taking us straight to the Truth that lies at its core. Our thoughts may become more obsessive and serious under this influence, and we can become much more secretive and protective over information that holds personal importance. This is an excellent influence for research and focused work of any kind.
Thank you all for your love and support! Be sure to check back on Thursday for the weekend forecast. Have a wonderful week! ☺
