I wanted to add a footnote to my entries. I include the time that a transit will be exact so that you can see when it waxes and then when it starts to wane. However, the effects are often felt sometimes even as long as a day or two. The energy is usually felt more strongly during the time leading up to the height and then it slowly starts to dissipate after. Keep in mind that Moon transits tend to last a shorter period of time than planetary transits.
(Sunday 6/6/10)- There will be a lot of planetary energy overnight. People that are sensitive to these energies may have trouble sleeping or have an active dream state tonight. After midnight, the Moon in Pisces makes an annoying quincunx to Mars in Leo (exact at 12:44am EST). Did you ever meet someone that says something that is completely different than how they actually act? For instance: you went out on a date, the person says that they had a fantastic time, and then they never called you? This type of disconnect (coming from yourself or coming from others) may be more pronounced around this time. Then the Moon will form its monthly conjunction with Jupiter both in Pisces (exact at 1:49am EST) assisting us in feeling optimistic and upbeat. This is an ideal time to work with groups of people. It also highlights/benefits: travel (especially long distance), other cultures, higher education, law, publishing, advertising, sales, horses, and spirituality. This will start a very short void-of-course Moon cycle that will last until the Moon will transitions into pioneering Aries. When the Moon makes no major planetary aspects to another planet, before it switches into the next sign, is call “void of course”. It is best to not do anything new during these times because it has a decreased chance of working or will have delays.
The big event will occur when the planet Jupiter will transition into the self-starting of Aries after being in Pisces since 1/17/10 (exact at 1:50am EST)! Jupiter (the traditional ruler of Sagittarius) rules over luck, optimism, expansiveness, religion (and spirituality), abundance, reversals in fortune, law, long distance/foreign travel, higher education, books, printing, publishing, marketing, horses, and really anything affecting the masses. Jupiter’s physical associations are: fat, tumors, pancreas, liver, plaque, cholesterol, hips, thighs, and insulin. Jupiter is considered to be the most beneficial planet in an astrological chart. However, it is also associated with over-confidence, conceit, mass epidemics, extravagance, and fanaticism. Some words/ phrases to describe Aries are: “I AM!”, Cardinal/Fire, passionate, head strong, adventurous, honest (often blunt), independent, enthusiastic, dynamic, selfish, courageous, energetic, enthusiastic, and easily bored. It rules over the head, face (not the nose), brain, eyes, upper jaw, fevers & inflammation. The metal is Iron and stones are: Amethyst, Diamond, and Bloodstone.
During the next 4 months we will be moving away from a time of focusing on passive idealism (Pisces) to forward movement and action (Aries). Aries is a highly motivated and self-starting sign that has no problem stating what is on their minds. We will crave action and adventure with heavy emphasis on the physical (like sports). Watch out “weekend warriors”!! Make sure you invest in a good protective helmet (remember Aries rules the head area). Jupiter in Aries may produce strong public opinions and a call for action. Jupiter will be joining Uranus in this sign and will be forming an exact conjunction on Tuesday 6/8. This could really be an exciting time with new ideas/solutions to old problems. Using the popular US Chart (7/4/76 at 5:10pm), both Jupiter and Uranus will be in America’s 4th house (home & domestic situations). I have been feeling that the massive Gulf oil hemorrhage will be repaired or collaborated with outside sources (possibly foreign). In fact, there could be international assistance with other US problems. Hopefully we will be open minded enough to take advantage of it when it is offered. If you look back to my notes when Jupiter entered Pisces on 1/17/10, I stated “there may be increased news about water/water conservation/pollution affecting oceans (etc), oil,….” Unfortunately, Pisces in Jupiter creates a passive atmosphere. I feel that with Aries being at the helm there may finally be aggressive movement toward a solution. If you have an interest, there is a link to an online petition to “stop America’s addiction to oil”: http://pol.moveon.org/nomoreoil/?id=20918-15161724-np5Peex&t=4
With all of Jupiter’s luck and optimism the down side to it residing in Aries may be bravado or over-confidence in abilities. Like I alluded to earlier, there will be strong opinions at this time (some may border on fanatical). Remember, Jupiter does have a tendency to go over the top. On a personal level, this would be a great time to start a new project, go for that promotion, start an exercise regime, etc. If you are normally shy or reserved, this could give you the boost that you were waiting for. Because Jupiter acts like an amplifier sometimes we could hear of wild fires, acts of aggression (either coming from or towards) leadership, war, or even possible attacks on US soil. It is important to know where Jupiter/Aries is located in your natal chart in order to know how this will affect you on a personal level. Jupiter will only be in Aries until 9/9/10 when it will return to Pisces during its Retrograde phase.
The Moon transitions into Aries (exact at 2:28am EST). Aries Moons are similar to New Moons. It is considered to be a favorable time to start new projects, physical activities (like sports or working out), dynamism, leadership, competition, and action. Things to avoid are being too bossy, arrogant, and insensitive during the next 2 1/2 days. Aries rules the head, so pay attention to stress; especially of you are prone to tension headaches. Next, the Moon will form its monthly conjunction with Uranus both in Aries (exact at 2:19am EST). The Uranus connection can bring us unexpected inspiration/ideas & can enhance clairvoyance & channeling. This can highlight technology, electricity, inventing, and unexpected events. If you are sleeping during this time, it may cause disruption in sleep or vivid dreams. Later in the morning, the Moon in Aries will square intense Pluto (R) in Capricorn (exact at 10:53am EST) possibly throwing a speed bump in our path. Someone could know how to push our buttons and really get under our skin. It is important to have good boundaries with others and remember not to overstep yours.
(Monday 6/7/10)- The day starts with Mars (The God of War) transitioning into the detail-oriented sign of Virgo (exact at 2:11am EST). is associated with the abdominal area, gastrointestinal system (large and small intestines), spleen, solar plexus, and lower lobes of the liver. Its metal is Mercury and Stones are: Jade, Moss Agate, and Blue Sapphire. Mars influences our actions, expression of anger, aggression, ego (both in and out of power), energy, courage, confidence, self-reliance, boldness, violence, destructiveness, cruelty, and often dictates the type of person that we will be sexually attracted to. Mars is like our engine…it makes us go, go, go! With Virgo residing in Mars, we will be focused on details and micro-managing. Our mental processes will become more serious, detail-oriented, thorough, and service minded. Sometimes this can cause analysis-paralysis. It is important that we don’t lose site of the big picture, while we are conscious of all the small details. We also may find that we become more health conscious and will be thinking more about the food & vitamins that we put into our bodies. This is a great time to start a diet or exercise plan (especially anything that will improve digestion). This is also a good time to learn something new and you will be more apt to be thorough in your studies. If you are single and meet someone new, you may be more selective with your choice. If you are in a relationship try not to nit-pick your partner too much. Virgo’s tend to show their love through criticism. They will often justify this by saying that if they didn’t care, they wouldn’t bother saying anything. Remember, anyone placed under a microscope will have faults. Lastly, Virgos are very prone to worry. I recently heard a great adage… “Worry is like praying for what you don’t want”. Hmmmm? We should be comfortable with a lot of the Mars/Virgo lessons because the planet of Saturn has been in Virgo for the last 2 ½ years. This will give us a final push in these areas….Did you learn Saturn’s lessons?? It would be important to know where Mars/Virgo falls within your chart in order to know how this will affect you on a personal level. Mars will be in Virgo until 7/29/10 when it transitions into relationship-oriented Libra.
I know I just said yesterday that Jupiter moving into Aries and the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction tomorrow were going to be a good times to start something new. That is still true, but because Mars is quincunxing both today…I will advise holding off just one more day. I don’t want to sugar coat things, today could bring frustrations and delays. I would say hang back and wait until tomorrow for the cosmos to give you the proverbial thumbs up. Mars in Virgo will make an annoying quincunx with Jupiter in Aries (exact at 10:26apm EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. Use caution with over spending, over confidence, and taking unnecessary risks with this transit. Place your energy into positive pursuits. We could have the tendency to “make mountains out of molehills” with this one. This is not a good time to rely purely on luck. Group endeavors may go poorly. Hopefully the effects of that will be softened when the Moon in Aries will positively sextile the Sun in Gemini (exact at 10:31am EST). This is an ideal time to be with friends & loved ones. This transit is conducive for feeling supported. Maybe it’s time to do something nice for your sweetheart?
In the afternoon, Mars in Virgo will form an annoying quincunx with transiting Uranus in Aries (exact at 3:03pm EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. Time to expect the unexpected! If you are normally impulsive, then a steady approach is best during this time. If you are normally sedate or in a rut, then use innovation to jolt yourself out of it. This can be a great time for innovation and sudden breakthroughs but make sure to think things through before you act. We may encounter someone that is oddly aggressive or not acting like themselves. I would just ignore their behavior (people may be a little “off” right now). Those prone to nervous conditions and anxiety may have difficulty around this transit. Then, the Moon in Aries will square Venus in Cancer (exact at 9:44pm EST). Although we will have a drive to be with others around this time, it would be best to avoid heavy conversations pertaining to love. Sometimes the object of our affections is just out of reach (or otherwise detained) around this transit. The is not a good time to go shopping or work on beautification because what we think looks good now may seem like a bad idea at a later time.
(Tuesday 6/8/10)- I will be doing Astrological Readings at Spirit Dancer today between 2-5pm(I take my last reading at 5pm). This is a great opportunity to get an introductory reading from me at a discount. They are located at 125 S. Winooski Ave in Burlington, VT (across from the fire station). Walk-ins are welcome or you can call me for a time. The store’s number is 802-660-8060.
In the morning, Jupiter will conjunct Uranus both in Aries (exact at 7:27am EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit (possibly a couple of weeks). This one has been creating quite the buzz because this event only happens approximately every 14 years! The last time this event took place was Feb 16th 1997. As I explained on Sunday’s entry, Jupiter just entered in the sign of Aries. Jupiter is optimistic and Uranus is electrifying…some combo? Now is the time to take a risk and do something outside your usual comfort zone. This combination tends to be associated with breakthroughs, inventions, and technological advances. Time to dream big and think big. The only caveat is that we may rush in and not double check the fine details. (Aries always wants to plow straight ahead). Jupiter could give us over-confidence or bravado. In other words, as long as you use your head…follow your heart! Just after, the Moon in Aries forms an annoying quincunx with Saturn in Virgo (exact at 7:44am EST). It may be hard to complete everything on our “list” or to get organized. It’s also possible that our emotions could make it hard to work around this time. Luckily, this influence will be short… Then, the Moon in Aries forms a positive sextile to Neptune (R) in Aquarius (exact at 9:13am EST) causing our imagination/creativity to soar. This transit is also beneficial for daydreaming, idealism, intuition, romance, music, poetry, abstract ideas, mysticism, etc. It is possible to be more charming around this transit. Anyone have rose-colored glasses? If you are sleeping while this event occurs, it may be possible to have prophetic or “visitation” dreams around this time. This will start a 2+ hour void-of-course Moon cycle that will last until the Moon transitions into stabile Taurus. The Moon transitions into Taurus (exact at 11:41am EST). Positive Taurus Moon activities are: focusing on organizing your finances, clipping coupons, decorating, designing, sensuality, cooking & eating luscious foods, organizing your home, massage, singing, and comfort. Try to avoid: laziness, relaxing too much, stubbornness, obstinacy and being too stuck in your ways. These will be the lunar themes over the next 2 & 1/2 days.
In the afternoon, the Moon in Taurus forms a flowing trine with Mars in Virgo (exact at 1:06pm EST). Our actions will be in harmony with how we feel. We may crave action around this time or have more energy. People will be inclined to fight for what they believe is right. Next, the Moon in Taurus forms a positive sextile with (the “Wounded Healer”) Chiron (R) in Pisces (exact at 1:13pm EST). You may be presented with an opportunity to heal or to be healed. Holistic and alternative medicine is especially favored. Serendipitous moments abound! Then later, Mercury in Taurus will form a flowing trine with Saturn in Virgo (exact at 7:14pm EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. Sextiles usually present opportunity, but will take some work on your part to have it come to fruition. A slow and steady approach is called for. Focus on one thing at a time, otherwise there is a good chance mistakes will be made or it will need to be done over anyway. In fact, this is a good time for mental discipline. It may be possible that we are slower than normal in learning something (people with learning disabilities may have trouble around this time). Stick with the facts if you need to communicate. A great time for building foundations, goal setting, and long-term planning!! Lastly, the Moon in Taurus will form a flowing trine to Pluto (R) in Capricorn (exact at 8:08pm EST). This will greatly assist us in processing our emotions and is beneficial for all types of counseling & cathartic experiences. It will be hard to be superficial around this time. Both Taurus & Capricorn are earth signs, so this is a good time for gardening or connecting with nature. Lastly, Mars in Virgo will form a stressful opposition with (the Wounded Healer) Chiron (R) in Pisces (exact at 11:07pm EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. This will be certain to bring up old wounds and memories and our 1st emotion may be anger. However, Mars provides us with the tools to act and make things better. It would be best to face these situations directly (yet with tact) and just deal with them once and for all. The rewards will outweigh any uncertainty.
(Wednesday 6/9/10)- The only transit that will occur today will be early when, Mercury in Taurus will form an uncomfortable square with Neptune (R) in Aquarius (exact at 6:39am EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. Be very careful (especially) with business dealings today. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is! Review all fine print closely and if possible put off signing any contracts. We will want to idealize people/situations around this time. To put it bluntly, we could be more susceptible to manipulation or someone fibbing to get their way. On the positive side: creativity, intuition, and imagination will be increased too. The remainder of the day will be under the influence of the Taurus Moon…
(Thursday 6/10/10)- I will be doing Astrology Readings at Candles & Creations today between 3:30pm-5:30pm (I will take my last reading at 5:30pm). They are located at 150 Dorset St, Suite 301 South Burlington, VT (in the Blue Mall across from the University Mall). Walk-ins are welcome or you can call #802-660-8021 to ensure a time. Check out their link: http://www.candlesandcreations.net
Gemini and Mercury are dominant players today. Mercury will be aspecting the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction that occurred on Tuesday; this time throwing communication and travel into the mix. There will be 8 Moon transits; 5 out of the 8 will be positive. Keep in mind that Lunar transits are shorter in duration than planetary transits. With this much planetary energy, it would be a good idea to work on grounding and trying to remain balanced. Try to fit some form of physical exercise or gardening into your day. Meditation or yoga would be good also.
Another big planetary event this week will be when Mercury (the God of communication & transportation) will transition into its native sign of Gemini (exact at 1:41am EST). Words and phrases to describe Gemini are: “I Think!”, Mutable/Air, communication, writing, media, talking, duality (the twins), diversified interests, “jack of all trades”, travel, shallowness, witty, quick, intellect, multi-tasker, gossip, designer, nervousness, moodiness and chatty. The body parts it’s associated with are: hands, arms, shoulders, nervous system and lungs. We are moving away from a time of good solid planning and methodology and entering a hyper-mental state that will increase multi-tasking. Anyone with air signs in their natal charts (especially) will feel like they are buzzing and may get an extra boost of energy. If you feel a little over stimulated with this shift, try to get grounded in the physical through exercise or gardening. Faxing, emailing, texting, Skyping, Tweeting, FaceBooking, phoning,…ANY form of communication will increase over the next two weeks. This is a great time if you need to juggle multiple things and progress could be made. However, Gemini doesn’t have a lot of staying power, so it may be hard to finish those things. Travel may be on the mind and this would be a great time to take or plan a trip. In fact other cultures could prove fascinating. Maybe it is time to finally learn another language? Manual dexterity and hand/eye coordination skills will be sharp. Time to tackle that project or hobby…maybe even build a bird house? The down side is that obviously being overly scattered is a real danger during this time. Fickle emotions and changing tastes are also an issue. Try not to indulge in mean or hurtful gossip. During this time period, it is likely that the story had been passed between 10 people and doesn’t even resemble the truth by this point. It depends on where Mercury/Gemini falls within your natal birth chart in order to know how this will affect you on a personal level. Mercury will transition into Cancer on June 25th!
In the morning, Mercury in Gemini forms a positive sextile to Uranus in Aries (exact at 6:28am EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. This will set the stage for surprising insights and ideas on new ways to do things. If this event occurs while you are sleeping, pay careful attention to the dreams that you have on this night. They could be prophetic or contain some information that you may find helpful. This transit increases clairvoyance and channeling. Exchange of thoughts and information may come at lightning speed around this time. You may not need much caffeine in the morning to feel awake! In fact, I would use caution with all stimulants around this time (and that includes sugar)….as we could be feeling downright jittery without much assistance! Then, Mercury in Gemini will form a positive sextile with Jupiter in Aries (exact at 9:42am EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. This may be a time that you are thinking of traveling or are in contact with people located a long distance away from you. This transit is beneficial for interest and/or dealings with other cultures, philosophy, higher education, continuing education, religion, and law or legal issues. We may be feeling expansive and wish to feed our intellect. This transit is ideal if you have wanted to learn a foreign language or to cook an exotic meal. Go ahead and be adventurous; now is the time!! The Moon in Taurus will form a positive sextile with Venus in Cancer (exact at 10:21am EST). It is likely that we could receive compliments on how we look or dress. It will be easy to interact with others. This transit is positive for both relationships/love and finances.
In the afternoon, the Moon in Taurus will make a flowing trine to Saturn in Virgo (exact at 2:32pm EST). This is a great time for organization, house cleaning, filing, recycling, and being disciplined. This is also beneficial for starting a diet or health regimen (like quitting smoking). Sometimes others will ask for help around this transit, but it won’t be burdensome, we will be happy to assist! Then, Mercury in Gemini will square the “Wounded Healer” Chiron (R) in Pisces (exact at 3:26pm EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. Past memories may come flooding in around this time. Forgiveness (or the need to forgive) often accompanies this transit. Next, the Moon in Taurus forms an uncomfortable square with Neptune (R) in Aquarius (exact at 3:50pm) telling us to not believe everything we are told. Illusion, escapism and deception will be prevalent. On the positive side, creativity will be high around this transit. This will start a 2+ void-of-course Moon cycle that will last until the Moon transitions into chatty Gemini (exact at 6:11pm EST). Good Gemini Moon activities are: communication (including talking, emailing, faxing, writing, etc), working with your hands, interaction with others (especially siblings and teachers), learning something new, diversified interests, mental agility, inquisitiveness, travel, and reading. Things to avoid are: fickleness, information overload, starting too many things & not being able to finish them, hyper activity, talking too much, and indecisiveness. These are all themes that will last the next 2 ½ days. Between 6:47pm-8:31pm EST the Moon will aspect Uranus/Jupiter/Mercury/Chiron just re-enforcing the transits that occurred earlier today. Lastly, the Moon in Gemini will form an uncomfortable square with Mars in Virgo (exact at 9:42pm EST). As with all Mars transits, I recommend doing something physical or exercising around this time (gardening, housework, working on the car, etc. all count!). Did you ever have a moment where circumstances seem like they are conspiring against you? Often, this transit results in a culmination of things that can be annoying. Sometimes small irritations or quarrels can result.
(Friday 6/11/10)- Overnight, the Moon in Gemini will make an annoying quincunx with powerful Pluto (R) in Capricorn (exact at 2:03am EST). Certainly this can bring up jealousy issues, power struggles, hidden fears, and obsessions. It is best to keep things a little superficial. This transit could cause frustrations on blending work and family time (especially if you have children). If you are sleeping while this event occurs your dream state may be intense. Then, Mercury in Gemini will form an uncomfortable square with Mars in Virgo (exact at 9:27am EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. Wow! Mercury has been very active since yesterday. Mercury is the natural ruler of both Gemini and Virgo, so this will be a strong square. Think before you speak! We may have difficulty putting our thoughts/ideas into action. This may cause us to feel restless (attention those with hyperactivity, ADD or ADHD). Children (and adults) may be irritable. There can be issues with mechanical failures, travel plans, arguments, technology, communication, etc. This transit may affect relationships and domestic fronts the most. Remember, if someone doesn’t understand what you are saying, don’t push the issue (wait until another day). Try not to let the morning routine breakdown…allow enough time to get ready this morning! The remainder of the day will be under the influence of the Gemini Moon….
(Saturday 6/12/10)- I will be doing Astrological Readings at Spirit Dancer today between 2-5pm(I take my last reading at 5pm). This is a great opportunity to get an introductory reading from me at a discount. They are located at 125 S. Winooski Ave in Burlington, VT (across from the fire station). Walk-ins are welcome or you can call me for a time. The store’s number is 802-660-8060.
We start the astrological day with the height of the New Moon occurring in the sign of Gemini (exact at 7:15am EST). The New Moon is considered to be highly auspicious times for starting new things, new ideas, new projects, and manifesting. All of Gemini Moon themes will be highlighted/amplified. I personally, like to do space clearing and meditating around this time. The New Moon is always accompanied by a conjunction with the Sun (also in Gemini). This usually makes us feel connected & supported by loved ones. It’s easier to talk about our emotions during this transit. Just use caution however, because there may be so much energy that we could encounter stubbornness or possibly greed. It depends on where the Moon/Sun/Gemini are located in your chart in order to know how this will affect you on a personal level. Then, Venus in Cancer positively sextiles Saturn in Virgo (exact at 7:15am EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. Discipline and organization are required. These transits will be permeated by seriousness. This probably won’t be a time of busy social activities. But the invites that you do get, will most likely be from your oldest and dearest friends. Any delays that are experienced will be for the better (but you might not feel that way at the time). This is an auspicious time for finances, business endeavors, strategizing, etc. This may be a good time to sit down with your partner to discuss long-term goals. If you are single and meet someone during this transit, the new romance may have promise of being long-term. This will also be a beneficial day to garden, cook, and/or do work around the house!
In the afternoon, Mercury in Gemini will form an annoying quincunx with Pluto (R) in Capricorn (exact at 3:05pm EST). Remember, this is a planetary transit and its effects will be felt much longer than a Moon transit. Quincunxes usually will manifest in the form of a block or obstacle. It may be harder to access deeper thoughts around this time. This is actually a better time for superficial activities. Keep things light! Not a good time to do research or to “dig below the surface”. Outside influences could affect you and present situations beyond our control. Then, the Moon in Gemini will form an uncomfortable square with Saturn in Virgo (exact at 6:25pm EST). Luckily the duration of this event is short. Sometimes this can give us a feeling of loneliness or isolation. We may feel passed over or possibly not getting the recognition that we deserve. It is better to work on organization around this time. Next, the Moon in Gemini will form a flowing trine to Neptune in Aquarius (exact at 7:35pm EST) causing our imagination/creativity to soar. This transit is also beneficial for daydreaming, idealism, intuition, romance, music, poetry, abstract ideas, mysticism, etc. It is possible to be more charming (or to meet charming people) around this transit. (I wouldn’t make a big decision around this time). This will begin a 2+ hour void-of-course Moon cycle that will last until the Moon transitions into domestic Cancer. When the Moon makes no major planetary aspects to another planet, before it switches into the next sign, is call “void of course”. It is best to not do anything new during these times because it has a decreased chance of working or will have delays. The Moon will transition into Cancer (exact at 9:50pm EST). Good Cancer Moon activities are: anything to do with home and family, cooking, maternal/mothering, being emotional, crafts, sensitivity, empathy, finances, savings, and care-taking. Things to avoid are: holding grudges, feeling slighted (possibly with little or no cause), over sensitivity, emotional eating, stubbornness, and being grumpy. All of these themes will be highlighted over the next 2 ½ days. Later, the Moon will aspect the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction. The Moon in Cancer uncomfortably squares Uranus in Aries (exact at 10:29pm EST). This is a time where someone around you may challenge tradition. You may also want to buck the system. An unexpected event or surprise could catch you off-guard. It is possible to experience issues with technology or mechanical issues. Then, the Moon in Cancer will form an uncomfortable square with Jupiter in Aries (exact at 11:19pm EST). Someone could challenge your beliefs at this time. It’s possible that you could find out someone within your group has been acting behind your back or is at odds with the greater good. Dealings with groups of people or legal matters are unfavorable around this time. Lastly, the Moon in Cancer will form a flowing trine with (the “Wounded Healer”) Chiron in Pisces (exact at 11:27pm EST). You may be presented with an opportunity to heal or to be healed. Holistic and alternative medicine is especially favored. Serendipitous moments abound! Wow! What a week?
Mark your calendars Venus moves into Leo on Monday 6/14!
(This is also the night of my class at “The Living Room” in Colchester on 6/14/10 6:30-8:30pm-see above).
The above transits are often felt collectively but you would need to know where within your chart that they would fall. As always, I am available for a professional astrological reading. I now have a variety of charts to choose from (relationship, life path, time-line, etc). I can do readings in-person or over the phone. Or if you’re not into having a reading I can just supply a chart. Please feel free to contact me for more information! Have a great week! Bye for now……
