Then from 10 am this morning to 2.30 pm she will move on to connect with the asteroid Psyche and Jupiter. It will be a productive morning and you may be able to tackle some tasks you have previously imagined to be impossible, like Psyche did to appease her jealous mother-in-law Venus! Finally from 4 pm to Midnight on Saturday its the turn of Hopi and Anubis to work with the Moon. Hopi brings us the ancestral wisdom of the Native American Indians as a guide and Anubis the Egyptian Undertaker God will help prepare you for the journey into your personal underworld to work on those repressed emotional patterns through your dreams.

July 20 Mars Conjunct South Node

This morning between 4.30 am and 8 am (AEST) the Moon in Libra was hanging out with the asteroid named for the shape shifting witch Circe from Homer’s Odyssey. I hope you didn’t feel like turning too many people into pigs! Great energy for transformation in your relationships through your dreams. The Moon moved into intense and insightful Scorpio at 11.12 am in preparation for Mars in Aquarius to make exact his conjunction with her South Node. Its time to work on those repressed emotional patterns and disassociated feelings. This is a big opportunity for significant transformation with all the Leo energy building up to support the North Node your destiny. Its going to be a huge 3 weeks or so ahead! Its time to let go of any fears associated with acting true to your beliefs and goals and not accepted by your friends or tribe. You may feel threatened by conflict or aggression and be forced to stand up for who you are! Even feel like a victim. Alternatively you may want to rebel at what you see as injustice or feel restless and irritable if you don’t! With Mars squared by Uranus you are being tested in your new way of life, often by authority figures or close relationship partners from the past. Art by Alice Popkorn

July 19 Moon with Nephthys and Medea

Another Moon Libra day of harmony and balance ahead tomorrow! The Moon will merge energy with the asteroids Nephthys and Medea between 10.30 pm and 4 pm, a time to descent down into your underworld and feel their dark influence. Nephthys was shadow sister to Egypt’s beloved Isis, mother to Anabis the Undertaker God born from her trickery of her sister’s husband Osiris, another reason for him to be murdered by their brother Set. Medea was a witch Princess of Colchis in Greece, who betrayed her home and family out of love for Jason of Argonaut fame, only to be betrayed when they returned to normality. A good time to reflect on deceit and betrayal,how they have played their part in your relationships and what your role has been in it all.

July 18 Libra Moon

The Virgo Moon will change sign to Libra at 5.42 am in the morning (AEST). Your focus will change from making things perfect to connecting with others and developing grace and harmony. From 8 pm to 4 am on Thursday morning, the Moon will merge energy with the asteroids Atlantis and Persephone. Atlantis was the perfect civilisation where everyone was treated equally and had their needs met, very Libran! Persephone was given the opportunity to become a wife and Queen in the Underworld whilst returning to spend time back with her mother on Earth every year, which also has a very balanced feel to it. How are you going to ensure that you introduce a more Libran feel into your life and your dreams.

July 17  Mercury and Medusa

July 16 Moon with Venus, Ceres, Orcus and Eos

Sadly the Moon leaves shining Leo for another month and enters Virgo at 3.30 am (AEST) in the morning! So prepare to be feeling more perfectionist and critical of your efforts as you awaken. Between 12.30 pm and 9.30 pm she will move on to connect with Venus, dwarf planets Ceres and Orcus, along with the asteroid Eos, an interesting stellium. Meanwhile at 5.55 pm Venus will perfect an awkward quincunx aspect with Mars in Aquarius. Its time to determine what you really want and not be led into doing other peoples work for them, learning to stand up for your rights and define what your responsibilities really are in relationships. Ceres will help you tune into natural justice while Orcus will enable you to connect with your ancestral line and listen to the messages you hear in your head. Eos is the Goddess of the Dawn, so she will help you bathe your relationships is a rosy pink light and be less critical of both yourself and others.

July 15 Leo Moon with the Asteroids

The Leo Moon will be merging energy during your dreams tonight with witchy asteroids Lilith and Hekate, between 12.30 am and 6.30 am. Hekate guards the gates between the realms as Goddess of the Crossroads and Transformation and Lilith is ever the outsider proud to maintain her feminine rights against the patriarchy. Could make for significant intuitive messages coming through! From 7 am to 4 pm in the afternoon the Moon moves on connect with Mercury plus asteroids Kassandra and Pele. The emphasis is back on thinking positively and overcoming lack od self-belief with passion as the volcano goddess erupts into the evening space. Finally from 8 pm to 11.30 pm, the storyteller Goddess Mnemosyne will be working with the Leo Moon to ensure the myths and history stay centre front and get plenty of attention. Its game on!

July 14 Moon and Iris

This morning the Moon changed sign to empowering and generous Leo, ready to shine towards reaching her purpose with her North Node and the asteroid Iris between 11 am and 5.30 pm. How perfect for my workshop on Finding Your Life Purpose. I love the archetype of Iris, she was the female equivalent to Hermes or Mercury amongst the Greek Gods, and was used whenever they had a really important message to send, as she could only speak the truth! Of course she represents our intuition, unlike tricky Hermes our rational logical mind who is not above taking us down more fearful and deceitful paths. Art by Josephine Wall

July 12 Asteroids line up for the Eclipse

Today the Luminaries will be setting up the energy for tomorrows Partial Solar Eclipse (12.47 pm AEST). Between 9.30 am and 1.00 pm the Moon will be merging energy with the asteroid Osiris archetype of Transformation and Reincarnation from Egypt. His beloved wife Isis used her magic to reassemble his severed body and bring him back to life, in order to inseminate her with their magical son Horus, the saviour God who reunited the Upper and Lower regions of the land. This is symbolic of reconnecting our upper and lower mind.

From 5.30 pm until midnight the Moon moves on to form a stellium or group of planetary bodies, with the asteroids Pythia, Apollo and Hebe. Apollo had dominion over magical oracles, where people came for answers to their questions. His high priestess called the Pythia gave them the answers in the form of a riddle after breathing in hallucinatory fumes from a crack in the Earth. So you will receive important messages this evening, but they will need to be deciphered before their meaning is clear. Hebe was Cup Bearer to the Gods keeping them in good spirits by distributing a magical nectar which some scholars believe also contained a hallucinogen.

Venus in Virgo makes exact a flowing trine aspect to Uranus in Taurus at 1.25 pm strengthening the Earth Grand Trine they form with Saturn in Capricorn. This will help you ground the emotional intensity that is building and get to the more practical meanings of the messages that come your way.

At 8.04 pm the Sun will perfect his opposition to Pluto bringing you inner power to face up to the changes you need to make whether they involve intense relationships with others or bringing your creativity out into the open through new projects and themes.

Finally the Moon will merge energy with the asteroids Isis and Kepler between 7 am and 10.30 am tomorrow morning just before she moves to partly obscure the Sun with the Partial Solar Eclipse. (We may be able to see just the tip of this in Melbourne). So Osiris and Isis, the great lovers, are very prevalent in this eclipse which fits the theme of relationship difficulties associated with the Saros Series of the eclipse.

Kepler was the father of Harmonic Astrology and originated the thinking behind Cosmobiology and the more complex aspects of the 8th Harmonic. Venus will be making a semi-square aspect (45 degrees) to the Sun and a sesquequadrate aspect (135 degrees) to Pluto at the time. This will forms a hard red triangle to the luminaries at the time of the eclipse, further emphasising that necessary changes may not appeal to our desire nature, as experienced through disruptions to our relationships.

July 13 Partial Solar Eclipse Cancer New Moon

The Cancer New Moon falls on July 13 at 12.48 pm in Melbourne (AEST), at 20 degrees and 41 minutes of Cancer, so in it’s 21st degree. The Sabian symbol is “A famous singer is proving her virtuosity during an operatic performance”, the key here is the price of success, the effort required to attain the gift through endless exercises and practice in order to pass on the mythos from the opera to the community, is it all worth it?.

This Cancer New Moon is a Partial Solar Eclipse, the first of a less common scenario where three eclipses occur in a row, suggesting a longer than usual period of potential upheaval and emotional intensity. Beginning from a Cancer New Moon, there will be the opportunity to centre yourself in a feeling of security coming from whatever constitutes home and family to you, as well as your body as a container for your spirit. The eclipses in July belong to Saros Series 2 Old North which has a theme around taking action on our personal relationships, dealing with ideas of separation or the end of a union. It will be clear what action needs to be taken and the final outcomes will be positive.

An Earth Grand Trine between Saturn in Capricorn, Uranus in Taurus and Venus in Virgo will be beneficial to help you ground more deeply in a physical sense. Cancer is the sign ruled by the Moon and connects us to our watery depths, heightening our sensitivity, you may become more aware of what no longer nurtures and supports you. While Cancer is a sentimental sign which likes to cling to the past, eclipses bring to light what has been hidden so you will be challenged to stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and allow these feelings to emerge so you can purge the past by staying open to the intensity of your feelings and using them as catalysts for change.

The situation will be amplified by a tight T square formed by the luminaries opposing Pluto in Capricorn by an orb of less than one degree and making an equally close square to the asteroids Artemis and Ariadne. This will amplify the transformative effect, as King of the Underworld Pluto will reveal your shadow patterns of over-nurturing others and Artemis wills us to be true to ourselves and our own needs, regardless of whether they conform with what society expects of us or not!

Ariadne the Mistress of the Labyrinth will help us dig deep inside ourselves to find what our true needs really are. She is connected on either side to the asteroids Artemis and Diana representing the archetype of the single daughter, Mistress of the Beasts, owned by no man, free to roam the forest, unfettered and accompanied by her pack of dogs. So there is huge potential at this lunation to begin the process of transformation offered by the triple eclipses over the six week period to individuate in our own way.

With the Sun and Moon in the sign of Cancer, the more general energetic focus is on:
• Ensuring stability and safety for yourself and those you love
• Your family unit and your home environment
• Sentiment and nostalgia, remembering the past
• Avoiding conflict and change, trying to move away from challenging situations
• Worrying about the well-being of those you love
• Responding emotionally and instinctively to situations
• Looking after your mother or mothering in general
• Being sensitive to the feelings of those around you

The area most aligned with the position of the New Moon can be best gleaned from your natal horoscope chart, however if you only know your Sun Sign, then affirmations around the areas indicated on the next page are likely to be the most powerful, but some adjustment may be required to the life areas below:

Cancer New Moon

July 10 Moon in Gemini with the Egyptian Neters

The asteroids named for the Egyptian Neters are flexing their muscles with the Moon tomorrow after she enters the sign of Gemini at 2.58 am (AEST). From 5 am until 8.30 am she will be merging energy with Imhotep the Master Builder and Healer who constructed the Step pyramid complex at Sakarra in the time of the Pharoah Djoser. From 11.30 until 7 pm the Moon journeys on to connect with powerful lion-headed Goddess of War and Healing Sekhmet, who inherited Imhotep as a son when he was deified! She is in the company of Hephaestus the Greek Smith God of the Forge, so they will be able to help construct whatever you are trying to manifest at the time. From 9.30 pm to 1 am on Wednesday morning the Moon will move on to merge with Horus the Sun God and hawk-headed saviour of Egypt who united both kingdoms wresting power from the shadow God Set.

July 9 Grand Water Trine

The Sun will make exact his trine to Neptune at 0.41 am tomorrow (AEST). This is a leg of the Grand Water Trine between the Sun in Cancer, Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Scorpio, so emotions will be flowing.

Sedna is the Mother of the beautiful sea mammals like the whales I was trying to visit in Warrnambool this morning! Hebe is the Goddess of Youth and Fun so lets look forward to happy watery dreams.and memories

July 7-8 Wild Weekend with Uranus and the asteroids!

The asteroids take centre stage again over the weekend as the Moon in Aries merges energy with the asteroid Eris from 10 am on Saturday morning until 2 pm (AEST). Eris in Aries is spoiling for a fight and loves to stir up a bit of trouble! The weather down here is blowing a gale in anticipation! The Moon will journey on into more calm and tranquil Taurus 10.50 pm so hopefully the wind will die down too! On Sunday the Moon will connecting with Uranus and Juno between 1 am and 6 am in the morning. perhaps it had better be my peacock dress for the expo tomorrow! Some surprises may be underway in the partnership stakes seeing as Juno has dominion over marriage! Perhaps a proposal is on the cards for some unsuspecting lover? From 10.30 pm to 2 am on Monday morning the Moon will catch up with the asteroid Gaea so the wild weather looks likely to continue as Mother Earth protests at the way she is being treated!

July 6 Moon with Minerva and Adriane

The Moon in Aries, having started her new round of the Zodiac will be connecting with the asteroid Hygeia between 1 am and 4.30 am on Friday morning. So it will a good time to dream about new routines which will be beneficial for your health and well being. From 9 am to 1 pm she will move on to merge energy with asteroid Minerva the Roman Goddess of Wisdom, sharing the archetype of Pallas Athena. Some useful strategies for embedding those new habits and routines into daily life could come to light. If you come across any symbols for the owl, pay extra attention, its significant! Between 8 pm and 4 am on Saturday morning, the Moon will hook up with a stellium between asteroids Diana, Ariadne and Artemis. Diana and Artemis, who share the archetype of Maiden Goddess of the Hunt, have been travelling close together for a while. They are straddling Ariadne the Cretan Princess and Mistress of the Labyrinth, bringing her extra power to manage her realm to her own advantage rather than that of handsome heroes.

July 5  Chiron Stations Retrograde

The Pisces Moon will be merging energy with the asteroid Urania, Muse of Astronomy and Astrology tomorrow morning from 9 am to 1 pm (AEST) heralding in her change of sign to Aries at 2.49 pm just 4 minutes before Chiron will station retrograde at 2.46 pm. You may feel a little emotional and in a reflective mood as you reconsider some of the new self-confidence you have moved into since April when Chiron moved into Aries. The Moon will catch up with Chiron along with the asteroid Astraea between 5 pm and 9.30 pm. So the emphasis will be with the cycles of the stars and how you can use them to heal past wounds.

July 4 Moon and Arachne

Keep an eye out for spiders as well, because that was how she ended up! .

July 2  Moon and Venus Archetypes

Its a quieter day or so astrologically with no new planetary aspects or a couple of days. The Moon in Aquarius will merge energy with the most ancient archetype of Venus, the asteroid Astarte, between 11 am and 2.30 pm tomorrow, Monday July 2 (AEST). Astarte was the Canaanite Goddess of Love and War. a very fierce and well respected deity. She is sitting directly opposite her more modern Roman version in Venus, the archetype we use to represent what we consider beautiful, value or are attached to! So maybe it is a day to reflect on just what you are wanting to manifest into your life in the way of relationship.

July 1 Moon with South Node, Pandora and Mars

Tomorrow there is an opportunity to connect with people who will help you heal your Chiron wounds as Mercury makes exact a trine to the Wounded Healer at 2.42 am (AEST).

Mars is just beginning to move backwards making you reconsider some of the actions you took early in June.

June 30 Moon meets Achilles

The Moon was hanging out with Black Moon Lilith while you were dreaming from 4 am to 8 am (AEST). This may have brought up memories of being repressed as a woman or for men having your intuitive feminine side held down in favour of rational logical viewpoints. She moved on to merge energy with the greatest and bravest warrior in Achilles, a Trojan Asteroid, from 12 pm until she changes sign to Aquarius at 2.36 pm. You may feel like fighting any kind of injustice in your life this afternoon! The financial year ends with Mercury in Leo making exact a square to Uranus in Taurus! Make sure there are no unexpected glitches in your accounting as you prepare to meet the Tax Man!

June 29 Moon engages with Underworld

The underworld theme from the Full Moon in Capricorn will be extended even further this morning as the Moon, still in Capricorn merges energy with the asteroid Prosperina, named for the Roman version of Persephone, from 10.30 am to 2.30 pm (AEST). What insights will you have gained around maturing you feminine side, when you emerge to integrate them into your conscious day to day life? From 4 pm to 9 pm the Moon will move on to Aphrodite (Greek Venus) conjunct with Pluto! Whoa still the feminine, desire nature this time, down with good old Hades in the Underworld! In Capricorn its a Saturnian theme! Was was left undone in a past life that needs to be understood and dealt with now? How perfect was our timing for the CIA Astro Group on Past Lives which we will be holding from 7.30 to 9.30 pm tonight!!!! Don’t you just love astrological synchronicity? Of course we do today, as Mercury changes sign to Leo at 3.16 pm allowing us to showcase what we know and share our knowledge! Art by Alice Popkorn

June 28 Capricorn Full Moon

The Capricorn Full Moon will form a dramatic turning point spotlighting how you can clarify your priorities and get back on course towards what means the most to you. The Moon is  debilitated in the sign of the Seagoat at the best of times, making it hard to connect with your feelings, as the emphasis is on completion,  responsibility, control and consequences.  This is exacerbated today as the Moon will be merging energy with Saturn, the ruler of the sign and Lord of Karma.  She will be connected in a stellium with Saturn and the asteroids Ishtar and Orpheus between 11 am and 9 pm, encompassing her opposition to the Sun in Cancer for the Full Moon, at 2.52 pm (AEST).

The Sabian Symbol for the Moon at 6 degrees and 27 minutes, the 7th degree of Capricorn, is described as ”A veiled prophet speaks seized by the power of a God” this symbolises mentorship, the ability to act as a mouthpiece for wisdom from a higher source, manifesting the power of life.  Asteroids Persephone and Atlantis form one corner point of a tight Grand Square with the luminaries. So there is a theme of journeys to the Underworld, as Ishtar, Orpheus and Persephone returned after spending time down there. The asteroid Hygeia and Chiron form the other point suggesting there will be opportunity to use this experience for healing deep seated wounds to our self-belief.

For the Sun in the 7th degrees of Cancer, there is the Sabian Symbol “Two native spirits dancing under the moonlight”, which continues the theme of creative imagination from the New Moon. It symbolises the play of invisible forces in all manifestations of life, hidden mysterious processes in nature, the astral and the etheric realms. The Sun remains within a few degrees of the asteroids Apollo and Pythia continuing the suggestion of availability of messages from spirit, should we be able to decipher them.

This Capricorn Full Moon may bring up feelings of sadness and depression as it will clarify where we have procrastinated or avoided issues which we really needed to step up and take charge of.  This brings the opportunity to trust in our power to let go of what has gone before and forge a new path forward into the future.

June 27 Mars Stations Retrograde

Today Mars retrograde in Aquarius stationed at 7.04 am (AEST) and at 9 degrees and 13 degrees of the sign.  The last time we had Mars retrograde in Aquarius was July 1971, almost exactly 47 years ago!  Very interesting to me as I emigrated to Australia from England on January 17 of that year, so huge change but very innovative change, Australia has been good to me!  The microprocessor, forerunner of the computer was invented in 1971, who could have imagined the changes that would bring to the way we live our lives?

Mars retrograde can involve retracing the actions we have taken in the past and problem solving them, coming up with better solutions.  Aquarius is the higher octave of the mind and ruled by Uranus so about electrifying and unexpected ways of thinking about things in order to change them.  Mars was in the sign of Aquarius late in 1905 when Einstein was getting many of his downloads that helped him understand how universal energy was working, and pave the way for today’s quantum physics! What can we expect this time with Uranus in Taurus making a square to Mars for the entire time he is retrograde and on until October 9?

The Sabian Symbol for the 10th degree of Aquarius is “A man who had for a time become the embodiment of a popular ideal, is made to realise that as a person he is not this ideal”.  This speaks of moving away from projections and undertaking self-reevaluation on a personal level.

It will be hard to get any traction on projects from today until August 28 (or from May 13 to October 9 if you take his shadow retrograde energy into account).  While Mars in Aquarius brings creativity in finding innovative ways to push your agenda, you will become obstinate and wilful rebelling against authority if boxed in or contained.  You could resort yo a scattered shotgun effect and can be quite unpredictable, you will be able to detach and be quite superior in the way you approach things.

Mars has been squaring Uranus since April 26, which continues on until October 9 due to their both entering retrograde cycles.  This is challenging you to be true to yourself and testing you to be true to any new behaviours you adopt as your own creative response.  You will feel impulsive, restless and want to remove any restraint, easily angered you can explode quite easily but the challenges you face will require new solutions.  Most likely opposition will come from authority figures or partners from close relations, often from the past.  People may appear very angry, assertive and egotistical but best results can come from collaborative efforts.

The other factor involving Mars and Uranus over the period will be their connection to Eclipses and the Lunar Nodes.  Mars has been involved in a close dance with the South Node since early June and forming exact conjunctions on June 8, July 21 and 26 September.  At these times you have an opportunity to work on any repressed emotional patterns that have been hard to shift. this could involve being forced to fire up and stand up for what you believe in as an individual.  This may involve overcoming fears of being rejected by your tribe or the community around you and feelings of being threatened , being a victim and having to face up to conflicts you would prefer to avoid.

The last time we had Mars retrograde in Aquarius there was also a triple eclipse season during late July and August, involving the same signs of the Zodiac, the Saros Series of the eclipses were however quite different.  Both suggest extended times of emotional upset.  In 1971 Uranus was not part of the equation, however this time he will be closely squaring the Nodes for the Cancer New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipse on July 13 and more closely squaring  the Luminaries, the Nodes and Mars at the time of the Total Lunar Eclipse on July 28.  So watch out for some unexpected changes and possibly more signs that Mother Earth is not happy with her treatment by humanity in more earthquakes and volcanic eruptions!

June 23 Moon with Asclepius

The Moon will change sign from Libra to deep and intense Scorpio at 5.10 am tomorrow morning (AEST). From 8 am to midday the Moon will merge energy with the asteroid Asclepius God of Healing by cutting out what is making you sick through your dreams. So consider what your dreams are bringing to the surface? The Sun will perfect a productive sextile to Uranus at 3.57 pm, what new ideas and changes bringing additional safety and security can the pair bring about in your material world? Then at 7.26 pm Mercury will make exact his opposition to Pluto, great energy for getting to the bottom of any problems between you and any significant others. Be careful that there isn’t any conflicts of wills or power plays involved over different points of view. Its good for exposing anything that is hidden or secret but be careful you don’t get obsessed with any ideas that come your way.

June 22 Venus opposite Mars

Sexual and creative energy is stimulated today as Venus in Leo made exact her opposition to Mars in Aquarius at 2.53 am (AEST) bringing an erotic flavour to your dreams. Venus is very powerful at the moment, just 2 days away from merging energy with the North Node and just recently parting from a sextile to the Moon in Libra a sign Venus rules. In contrast Mars is finding life rather frustrating, he has slowed almost to a standstill in preparation for his station retrograde next Wednesday, July 26. He is also still enthralled in a tight square with Uranus the planet who rules Mars current domicile of Aquarius. The pair will be connected like this through to October due to their respective retrograde cycles which is very frustrating for Mars, he would feel trapped and irritated not able to run his own race and spoiling for a fight! His best bet is to work with his Aquarian energy and join up with others in group initiatives for the good of the community, then he may get some traction. The opposition will make you attracted to the other sex but it will be hard to make this go anywhere, love energy is strong but sadly it is far more likely to end in conflict! From 12 pm to 4 pm the Moon in Libra will connect with the asteroid Circe, shape shifting witch from the Odyssey. You may feel like following her example and being able to turn certain people in your life into pigs lol.

June 21 Cancer Solstice

The emphasis will be on your relationships, as the Sun moves into position for the Cancer Solstice June 21 at 8.08 pm (AEST).  Venus will be opposite Mars as the pair move to connect with the Nodal Axis, so sexual and creative energy will be stimulated and it will become clear whether your needs are getting the attention they deserve. Make sure you take the appropriate action because remember energy for the next 3 months is being generated at this time!

The Sun will be opposite a powerful Saturn in his rulership of Capricorn, enforcing the karmic consequences and making it clear how your current situation results from your past activity or procrastination. It’s time to restructure and deal with any emotional issues which are holding you back from manifesting your dreams.

Saturn will also be involved in a tight quincunx or “stone in your shoe” aspect to Venus and the North Node in Leo, who will be trying to do their best at shining brightly! There may need to be some adjustments to their strategies to make them more effective.  Perhaps you need to focus on expressing the real you, rather than the sanitised version that you feel may be more likely to put you in a desirable light.

The Sun will be forming a tight square to Chiron and sextile to Uranus, which will be a common occurrence as they connect with other planetary points while they continue to remain in a 30 degree, semi-sextile aspect, to each other.

You will experience setbacks to your self-confidence and self-belief, thanks to the Sun-Chiron-Saturn T-Square, but Uranus may help you find innovative new ways to change the way you look at yourself.

Cancer Solstice

The ongoing trine between Jupiter and Neptune will make a brief Water Grand Trine with Mercury, so a more spiritual (positive), or confused (negative) way of thinking and feeling about the situation could arise. Make sure you are pro-active and try to use these energies in the most productive manner before they affect you in ways that aren’t on your current wish list!

Happy Cancer Solstice everyone!

June 20 Mercury trine Jupiter

Mercury in Cancer will make an exact harmonious trine to Jupiter in Scorpio at 5.42 am in the morning (AEST). This is great energy for planning, business and communication, as your mind will be sharp and open to seeing all the possibilities. You will be fascinated by new information and will be able to think positively and be optimistic about the opportunities that come your way.

June 16-17 Moon in Leo with Venus

Venus perfected a trine to Chiron at 6.23 am (AEST) helping you to love yourself more and open up to accepting love from others through relationship. More opportunities for connection were likely to have occurred in the day before and after this exact connection. Mercury made exact his opposition to Saturn at 11.46 am, you will be able to see things on their reality but possibly also from a rather negative outlook. You may find you are in a serious mood, thinking about thing rather deeply, don’t let this drag you down some positive thinking won’t go astray. The Moon’s move into Leo at 5.20 pm could be just the kind of lift you are looking for especially merging energy with Lilith and Venus until around midnight, Try to get out and have a peek at the Moon and Venus in the sky between 8 and 12 pm they will be showing off next to each other in Leo, shining brightly, if we get a break in the rain clouds! From 2 am until 9.30 am the Moon will journey on to find her own North Node close to the magical asteroid Hekate, followed by Kassandra and Pele the volcano Goddess, hope this won’t bring on more activity in Hawaii! These are very powerful female archetype over the night sky in the powerful Sun ruled sign of Leo, so expect fireworks in your dreams. Finally tomorrow evening the Moon will meet the asteroid Mnemosyne keeper of the myths and memories of the Gods and Mother to the 9 muses who inspire the creatives to ensure they are remembered. .

Venus in Leo will perfect a square connection to Uranus in Taurus at 1.32 pm, you will crave excitement within your relationships, maybe even start a fight to achieve it. Whatever the case you will want to avoid any form of containment and you could bring some important issues out in the open, even resolve them. From 3 pm to 6 pm the Moon will journey on to connect with strategic and wise asteroid Pallas Athena so the perfect solutions may present themselves.

June 14 Gemini New Moon

By the time of the Gemini New Moon your heart and mind will have a common purpose, as Mercury will have moved into Cancer forming a Mutual Reception with the Moon in Gemini, imagination and ideas will abound. The New Moon on June 14 will be at 5.43 am in Melbourne (AEST), at 22 degrees and 44 minutes of Gemini, so in it’s 23rd degree.

The Sabian symbol is “Three fledglings in a nest high in a tree”, and it speaks of the spiritually creative process and how it can expand and grow in a relatively integrated mind, so it refers to our creative imagination. This theme is consistent for a longer period, carrying through to the symbol for the Cancer Sun in the Capricorn Full Moon, which follows at the end of the month.

The Sun and Moon will have recently overtaken the asteroids Apollo and Osiris and remain within a 2 degree orb at the time of their conjunction. As the Greek Sun God Apollo included creativity in his dominion this fits right in with the theme of creative imagination. He also brings the brilliant vitality and optimism that the Sun radiates so vital for our ongoing well being.

Venus will be poised in the last minutes of the chaotic last degree of Cancer ready to burst into Leo, the sign the Sun rules, two hours later. The Egyptian Sun God Horus will similarly be in the last degree of Taurus ready to join the asteroid Merlin in the first degree of Gemini on the following day. Merlin was the chief druid and advisor to the court in Arthur’s ancient Britain.

A further magical archetype, the asteroid Circe in Libra, forms a tight harmonious trine to Apollo and the luminaries at the time of the lunation. Circe was the shape-shifting witch from Homer’s tale of the Odyssey. The asteroid Astarte will make up the third corner of an Air Grand Trine from the same point in Aquarius. Astarte was the oldest archetype with the nature of a very powerful Venus in the Canaanite culture.

So the Gemini New Moon will be able to connect us to truly powerful and magical knowledge and insights. The Sun and Moon will also form an awkward quincunx aspect to the mid-point of the conjunction between Pluto and Black Moon Lilith. So there are strong themes of optimism, vitality, magic and transformation surrounding our creative imagination at this time. Used wisely we will be able to better inform our view of the world and just what is possible, if we apply all our gifts to moving forward.

As usual with a Gemini New Moon, the basic energy focus is on:

• Being curious, approaching new experiences with child-like enthusiasm
• Collecting data and information and communicating it to those around us
• Networking, meeting new people and making useful connections
• Being changeable and restless, multi-tasking, taking on many different activities
• Learning, finding new teachers and sources of information
• Acquiring new technology and learning how to use it
• Being social, expressing ourselves and sharing what we are learning
• Trying to rationalise or think our emotions instead of feeling them

The area most aligned with the position of the New Moon can be best gleaned from your natal horoscope chart, however if you only know your Sun Sign, then affirmations around the areas indicated on the next page are likely to be the most powerful, but some adjustment may be required to the life areas below:

    Hey Sara,
    As someone whose natal Sun is conjunct Pandora and the Great Attractor (lol, square Pluto in Virgo exact) it’s cool to read your take on Pandora. Makes me feel better about who I am – she who tends to take the lid off or asks why no one else will confront the goddam elephant in the room. Oh yes, and there was that time when I was 8 when I was in bed, pointed up to the stars through the ope curtains, and told my mum I wanted to go home…but no doubt, that is a Great Attractor rather than a Pandora thing!
    In general, just love your work and look forward to every new Moon Myth post.
