The intensity many of us have been feeling this week continues into the weekend, especially as we move into Sunday as Mercury leaves it’s conjunction with Mars and opposition to Pluto just in time for Mars to get in some face time with the planet of sex, death, and transformation. Luckily, the moon in Libra this weekend mellows out the energy a bit, putting us in a more romantic and harmonious mood as we go about our holiday weekend festivities.
Friday (6/30): Today Venus in Taurus squares the lunar nodes, bringing some challenging energy into our relationships and financial matters that may feel very fated, karmic and synchronous. Whatever tension comes up to throw us off kilter in relationships this weekend is meant to deliver important insight into the ways in which our close partnerships may be preventing us from moving forward into our truest path and highest purpose. The North Node in Leo is all about having the courage to walk proudly into an authentic, heart-centered path the likes of which we’ve never dealt with before. In order to do this, the South Node in Aquarius requires us to let go of our attachment to the “hive mind,” and the fear and self-doubt we carry involving the judgments of those around us. Sharing your heart with the world can be a very difficult and vulnerable experience, but a truly deep connection with the people in our lives is what is needed at this time.
Saturday (7/1): No major planetary aspects. The moon is waxing in the beautifully balanced sign of Libra. The moon expresses itself quite harmoniously in the Venus-ruled sign of Libra. There is an emphasis on beauty and elegance, and aesthetics become more important. There is a pull toward relationships and working in harmony with others. This is a great time to sign contracts, as it is likely that agreements made will be mutually beneficial to both parties. People may become more indecisive, placing too much emphasis on fairness and equality over self-interest.
Sunday (7/2): Today we have a continuation of the Mercury/Mars/Pluto energy that has been playing out throughout the week as Mars comes into a very intense opposition with Pluto. While the combined energy of Mars and Pluto can come on a bit strong, as co-rulers of Scorpio, Mars and Pluto know how to play nice together and if used appropriately, this can be an incredibly potent energy for personal empowerment and manifestation. While this aspect has high potential for accidents and some absolutely vicious arguments (both verbal and physical), it also allows us to become extremely more strong-willed and hyper-focused on the task at hand. Our physical, psychological, and emotional endurance may increase significantly under this influence, especially for those with Aries or Scorpio Sun/Rising. Capricorn and Cancer Sun/Moon/Rising signs are also likely to feel this aspect quite strongly, as well as Libras to a lesser extent.
I hope you all have a beautiful weekend! Be sure to check back here on Sunday for the weekday forecast! :)
