Intuitive Life Astrology Forecast for the Week of June 16th ~ Mercury backs into Gemini, a Volatile Mars-Uranus-Pluto T-square Peaks, and the Bright Summer Solstice Arrives

 

 Image2

 

This week, a stimulating, if potentially volatile, Mars-Uranus-Pluto T-square peaks.  This forceful grouping of Mars, Uranus and Pluto reignites the lingering energies of mid-April’s Clash-of-the-Titans-Grand-Cardinal-Cross.  The week ahead also brings us the Wounded Healer Chiron move to retrograde motion, and last but not least, the Summer Solstice, when the Sun enters nurturing Cancer…

 

On Tuesday, June 17th, retrograde Mercury swims out of the emotional waters of Cancer and back into the crisp analytical air of Gemini, one of Mercury’s “home” signs.  This will likely alleviate some of the weepy or overemotional reactions some have been experiencing while Mercury has been treading the emotional waters of Cancer.  His move into Gemini will also make unfinished communications and information more accessible.  Just remember to keep double-checking facts that may arrive and remain flexible since Mercury doesn’t return to direct motion until July 1st !

 

And on June 19th, all of those bits of information we’ve just received can come together quickly when the Sun and Mercury connect in Gemini.  We can finally feel like things are beginning to fall into place and some sort of clarity can finally reach home base.  However, once again, we will also want to hold off making any big changes or taking action on any of our new Big Bold Bright Ideas until after Mercury turns direct on July 1st!

 

Another bright spot this week takes place on Wednesday, June 18th, when Venus dances sweetly with Jupiter. Relationships, creativity, sensuality, abundance and financial blossoming are delivered to us in an almost natural benevolence.  Look for kindness and generosity in encounters with others, expanded creativity and artistic flair, along with your juicy delight of choice!

 

And, if we can, we’ll want to wallow in that juicy delight for as long as possible – because on Thursday, June 19th, we re-encounter the jangling energy of the Mars-Uranus-Pluto T-square that originally began on April 4.  Using extra caution and sidestepping avoidable conflict can soften this energy.  While stability in general may feel elusive, on the positive side, know that major breakthroughs and unbridled leaps forward can also be the result of this extreme energy dance if you’ve done your work and you’re ready for Your Big Changes.

 

And then on Friday, June 20th, Chiron begins his five-month retrograde till November 23rd.  The degrees from 18° to 13° Pisces will be offering the deepest healing opportunities, which may include recognizing or experiencing a wound ready to be released and healed.  Those degrees in any of the mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius will also be strongly affected by Chiron’s healing embrace.

 

 
Finally, a new season of life begins on Saturday, June 21st as the Sun enters the succulent sign of Cancer, and when the light, life and celebration of birth arrive with the Summer Solstice. I think we can collectively breathe of sigh of relief and be grateful that Spring 2014, which included both Saturn and Mars being retrograde, achingly difficult eclipses, as well as being overwhelmed by the energy of the life-changing (and challenging!) Grand Cardinal Cross. Fortunately, Summer brings a promise of fulfillment, abundance and joy to our doorsteps.  And I think we can all use a good dose of that!  So I would say that Saturday could be THE perfect time to give Spring 2014 a loving little grateful pat on it’s behind and open our arms wide to the new Season and Re-birth of the Light…

 

More soon,
Take good care and be happy,
Much love,

Intuitive Life Astrology Forecast for the Week of June 9th ~ Full Moon in Sagittarius and More Big Energies…

 

 

Image2

 

This week we can look forward to a Sagittarian Full Moon, Neptune turning retrograde, Mercury already retrograde in Cancer, plus we have a volatile Mars-Pluto square…

 

As we begin the month of June, Mercury is in apparent backward motion, moving through Cancer and reaching out to the past. He went retrograde at 3 degrees of Cancer on Saturday, June 7, and basically will be sitting still in the sky from June 7 to June 9. The days when he sits stationary are often the most likely times things can go haywire. And right now, as he sits in the emotional sign of Cancer, our thinking and conversation (Mercury) will likely become more emotional, as well as remembering the past. Then on June 17, Mercury backs into his own sign of Gemini where he will spend the rest of June – and the rest of this retrograde period. With Mercury retrograde in his own sign of Gemini, travel and communication could begin to move quickly but erratically. During that time, we will want to be sure that before speaking we fully engage our brains before letting words flow from our lips. It would also be a good idea to be careful before hitting “send” on our computer, smartphone or twitter. Sending the wrong message to the wrong person is a possibility! As is drunk texting!  Ack!

 

Mercury retrograde typically lasts for about three weeks and it’s just part of the natural cycle of life. And while things can break and not go as we had planned during these three weeks getting worried or upset about it won’t change anything, and likely will just add to the confusion. Being aware of potential scrambled energy is more than half the battle. The rest of it is just staying flexible and alert.

 

Also, we often reconnect with those from our past – especially with Mercury being retrograde in Cancer this time. Plus, some relationships may and others break apart. Mercury retrograde in Cancer can have a quality of fate to it. And if a relationship or a situation ends during this period, basically it’s supposed to. Do know that any endings are often final. The key is awareness and flexibility.

 

You can also read my previous post from today June 8 that covers keys to surviving a Mercury retrograde.

 

Then Monday, June 9 at 9:16am pacific, Neptune sits stationary retrograde at 7°35′ Pisces. Natal points between 4 and 11 degrees in the mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces will be most strongly affected. Depending on the aspects made, these months, from now through November 15, 2014 when he returns to direct motion, can find us turning inward and reaching new spiritual levels. If, however, challenging aspects are being made to your natal chart, there could also be deception or delusion (self or otherwise), illusion, and/or confusion in the areas of life specifically triggered by his aspects.

June’s Full Moon occurs on June 13, at 9:12pm pacific at 22 Sagittarius.

 

Sagittarius is the natural ruler of the Ninth house of the higher mind, expanding worlds, travel, education, legal and medical matters and our views and greater vision. And while the Sagittarius Full Moon can bring happiness, joy, liveliness and fun, this time the Moon will be in the midst of very challenging aspects

 

Venus will be opposing Saturn which can represent roadblocks in emotions or relationships. And at the same time Mars will be within throwing distance of squaring Pluto. These are difficult, angry, challenging and/or volatile aspects for this Full Moon – and us – to deal with. Relationships in trouble may not survive because this energy can bring hurt feelings. Also, there could be many types of endings, not just in personal relationships. However, if relationships and partnerships have essential strength, they will survive, albeit maybe a little battered and bruised. So basically, it would be advisable to pay attention and be alert for potential power struggles, and just to the side for the time being.

 

So, I would look for this to be one smashing pumpkin of a Full Moon!

 

But Saturday, June 14th, is really the day to be ready to duck and cover.
The Libra Mars squares Capricorn Pluto and bring us those potentially volatile energies that will be reigniting the revolutionary transformational energy that peaked in mid April with the Cardinal Grand Cross. Mars will once again be triggering that Cardinal grand cross energy pretty constantly over the next few weeks. And events or situations that were not completely resolved that began in mid-April may come back to haunt, especially with Mercury retrograding and emotional Cancer and then in fast moving Gemini.

 

The successful way to navigate through the mixed energy of the upcoming week is to stay calm, avoid unnecessarily treacherous, questionable or dangerous situations and/or people. Don’t bang your head into a wall that isn’t going to move, and/or avoid confrontations as much as possible. On the plus side, this powerful energy can also catapult us to incredible productive action and fearless and positive assertiveness. Relationships that are ready to move forward can also be transformed in powerful ways.

 

The bottom line is that this is definitely not the greatest couple of days to schedule important meetings or discussions. If something or someone needs to be dealt with, try to wait a few days because bridges burned now may not be able to be rebuilt.

Take good care and be happy,

A Quick Survival Guide for any Mercury Retrograde And our next Mercury Retrograde is now…June 7-July 1, 2014

Image2

 

 

 

Lots of us are already aware of what to do (or more likely what “not” to do) during a Mercury Retrograde, but here’s another quick summary of the General Rules of Mercury Retrograde Thumb :)

 

• Double-check any information received, especially any travel (Mercury) arrangements!

 

• Back up all computer data as soon as possible. Computer crashes, cable outages, electronic devices, including smartphones, often arise during a Mercury Retrograde. Also, automobile issues, breakdowns and/or repairs are common during Mercury Retrograde since Mercury also has reign over all moving parts.

 

• If you don’t have to, it’s best not to purchase any big ticket items. They will often have issues or flaws not obvious at purchase. But if you absolutely, positively must purchase that computer, car or smartphone, just double and triple check all the paperwork. It’s also a good idea to get a warranty with any purchases over the Mercury period. And also be prepared for delays with any big transactions.

 

• Read and re-read all small print on all contracts that you consider signing. Don’t be shy about asking questions if you don’t understand something. Get as much information as possible prior to finalizing a deal.

 

• Finish or work on projects you’ve already begun. It’s also a great time for doing research on new projects, as well as cleaning out hidden or neglected spaces, like closets, drawers and garages. Besides, you never know what forgotten treasure you might find from the past (Mercury traveling backward and all) that regains a new life. Even “completing” or “finishing” an old relationship that’s been hanging on past its time would be healthy.

 

• Essentially it’s an excellent time for tying up any and all loose ends to better prepare for the fresh start that’s waiting in the wings after Mercury moves forward again.

 

• It’s also important to take things with a grain (or few) of salt. As much as possible recognize that the energy will be moving in a direct line again in about three weeks so just try to relax and stay flexible with scheduling and planning. Know that some confusion will likely be in the air and all energy belongs to the Trickster for a few weeks.

 

• Also, try not to take things too personally when people say amazingly arrogant, obnoxious, insensitive, offensive or unexpected things. Sometimes they really are just what they seem to be (ask me, I’ve dealt with one or two lately), but usually they mean no harm and their own thinking is just stuck on ‘pause.’ If you’re sure they’re really trueblue and not simply appallingly arrogant, do give them the benefit of the doubt. Otherwise, this is the perfect time to just cut the cord. Mercury retrograde actually presents an opportunity to dump any or all of the aforementioned insulting energies. And once again, do know that communication with the “trueblues” will improve after Mercury goes direct. Taking time to put our own brains in gear before engaging our mouths will also be to our benefit!

 

• Finally, remember to take a break (just like Mercury’s doing!). Re-connect with old friends, see the humor in life (it really is always there someplace), laugh and reminisce! And remember that Mercury retrograde often brings old friends or lovers back into our lives seemingly out of the blue, and/or you may have the urge to finally reach out to someone who has been on your mind from the past.

 

• Most importantly, allow Mercury to take you in a new or extraordinary direction. If you feel compelled for some reason to “take another road,” there’s usually a very good reason for it.

 

• And, this would be THE time to re-view, re-examine, allow, accept and then move on when Mercury moves forward again to be dazzling and new!

 

And above all, don’t leave your sense of humor behind and DO remember to use it! :) Remember, this is simply a recurring transit (Mercury retrograde happens three or four times a year for three or four weeks at a time), and it will be gone (again) before we know it!

 

I’ll be adding another post later today covering this particular Mercury retrograde, as well as the Sagittarius Full Moon coming on Thursday!

June 2014 ~ Dates of Reactivation of April’s Grand Cardinal Cross ~ Just a Heads-up!

Image2

 

 

 

 

 

The Moon will reignite mid-April’s Grand Cardinal Cross every week as she enters each Cardinal sign, i.e., Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn.

Just make a note of these dates as these days may present a few “challenges” to deal with, especially if your personal birth chart, planets, angles or sensitive points are taking any kind of “direct hit.”

You can also call the Radio Show tomorrow morning at 9am pacific if you’d like to see if your chart is impacted directly, though EVERYONE will be experiencing this energy.

Intuitive Life ~ Week of May 18th, 2014 ~ Mars (and action!) FINALLY moves forward…

Image2

 

 

 

Last week was tough.

 

Venus was getting hammered and punched around by the four cardinal cross planets and she was hurting. We may have been left feeling unappreciated, unwanted or even unloved.

 

Plus, the Scorpio full moon was also conjunct Saturn, adding a little more grimness to the whole week. Some level of depression could have been in the air, in us, or in those around us, and we may have found ourselves in a position where we had no choice but to deal with it. That would be Saturn speaking. The positive side of that energy could have brought new awareness, discipline, or a new commitment – and probably to ourselves.

 

The great news is that things should be feeling better starting now.

 

On May 20th the sun enters bright and cheerful Gemini and brings us into the fresh air. Plus, we’re moving away from that stinky Cardinal grand cross, and Mars in Libra is FINALLY direct. Gemini is an air sign and sometimes light as a feather. And after the last couple of months of discord, that will be a very welcome energy for most of us. We move from earthy Taurus and watery Scorpio to cerebral air and receive the gift that we need to look at the last couple of months from a new perspec..tive, and pause while we plan our next moves. This week, both the Sun and Mercury are dancing in Gemini. We are SO ready for lighthearted conversation and humor after the heaviness of last week, and last month. We will feel more curious and maybe a new restlessness. Be ready to respond to phone calls, emails and messages that will begin probably with a flurry. Laughter will be coming easier starting this week.

 

Mars finally stations direct on May 20th. Now, that doesn’t mean that everything moves forward at once – although I DO think we’ll feel it as a rush of forward energy this week. Mars’ retrograde shadow period (which is the time it takes to reach the exact same degree his retrograde began) will continue until July 21st. So this week, Mars will actually be sitting dead still in the sky, hovering there while he gets some legs under him and can FINALLY (am I shouting?) start moving forward again sometime next week.

 

Mars has been in Libra since December 8th – and let me tell you Mars is not happy in Libra, called the sign of his “detriment” – which means he is really REALLY uncomfortable. And by the time it’s all said and done, Mars will have traveled through Libra for about eight months until July 26th, when he moves into deep, passionate Scorpio. But more about that one later! Mars in Libra has been bringing us lessons about relationships and partnerships. We may have felt like we were hit with a board on the side of our head. And now that he’s moving forward, hopefully we got whatever message he had for us. But the worst is behind us now and our time of extreme testing is fading and coming to an end. Any feelings of frustration will also be dissolving over these next few weeks.

 

More good news for this week is that benevolent Jupiter will form a flowing trine aspect of ease with the builder Saturn. And now we can see real solutions growing and manifesting. Discipline will be helping our visions become reality. We will feel grounded today with a new confidence and dignity. Using enthusiasm and determination, great success can be ours. Wonderfulness (yes, that’s a word, I just made it up) can begin now.

 

As a final quick-grand-cross-pattern comment, pay attention when the Moon (or any planet) moves through the middle degrees of any cardinal sign (Aries, Libra, cancer, or Capricorn) and hits the grand cross planets. Tension can arise and reignite April’s energy. And on that note, be alert on May 23rd as the Aries Moon puts a match to the grand cross. On that date, she will conjunct Uranus, oppose Mars, square Pluto, and square Jupiter. Just make a note of the day – and duck if you need to.

 

After all the forward movement and good news of the week, I almost hate to mention it but there is a Mercury Retrograde period approaching beginning on June 7th at 3° Cancer and lasting until July 1st. Mercury will back up and return to Gemini on June 17th, just in time to dance with the Sun on June 19th before the Summer Solstice on June 21st. Expect Mercury’s retrograde in Gemini to bring out the trickster element even stronger than usual. Since Mercury rules Gemini, this will be like having a double Mercury retrograde. And because of that, NOW would be THE time to begin doing computer and data backups, having vehicles checked out, etc. – and doing anything BEFORE the Mercury retrograde period begins that you wouldn’t want to do DURING the upcoming Mercury retrograde period! More on this shortly!

Astro Week of May 11th, 2014 ~ get ready for a rock-em-sock-em kind of week ~ Intense Scorpio Full Moon

Image2

 

 

 

This week has a go-for-broke energy with the full Moon in Scorpio, along with Venus squaring Scorpio’s ruler Pluto on the same day – and making a conjunction with Uranus the following day. And only a few hours before the Moon opposes the Taurus Sun, she will pass over retrograde Saturn adding boundaries and/or fear to the mix. The aspects will add intensity and surprises to the already extreme Scorpio Full Moon.

 

We’ll have to deal with it no matter what. There’s nowhere to run.

 

the coming week has a rock-em-sock-em-time-to-duck kind of energy. You may have already felt it begin over this past weekend. (See previous blog: “Weekend Alert”)

 

What the week ahead holds for us is a re-ignition by Venus of that very much still-present Cardinal Grand Cross acting with the Full Moon in Scorpio at 23 degrees, both taking place on May 14th.

 

The Scorpio Full Moon can be obsessive and emotional. And since this lunation is closely conjunct stern Saturn in Scorpio, control issues and/or fears and anxiety can rear their pointy little heads for us to deal with. Read this one as difficult or clearing, whichever works best for you. And read it as possible endings. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and brings transformation. Whether we want it or not.

 

The Venus square to Pluto brings up deep, and even hidden, relationship issues. So, expect that all relationships and personal interactions will be unusually intense this week. Venus’ involvement also speaks to our finances and resources, so those issues will also come up for deep examination and change.

 

This week can also hold envy or jealousy, especially if we feel we deserve something someone else got, or that we’ve been overlooked or ignored. Our relationships are ready to transform. And especially if we’ve been boiling over with any of these issues for very long, things may have a tendency to erupt like a pressure cooker.

 

Then when Venus meets up with Uranus on May 15th, drama and excitement may reach into our relationships. If a relationship is on the block for ending, this may be the week. On the other hand, singles who are hoping to return to the relationship market may find that interesting new people show up unexpectedly. And since Mercury will also be having a dance with the coupling Venus and Uranus, communication can be quite flirtatious, if not dependable! So, do expect the unexpected if you’re out there and available!

 

Also on May 14th, expansive Jupiter will form a flowing trine aspect to Chiron, often called the “Wounded Healer.” This aspect can have the effect of easing the discordant energies or amplifying them, since Jupiter often simply “makes things bigger.” So any “woundedness” we carry might be magnified now. Doing something that nurtures our bodies or souls and nourishes our lives will help move the energies in a more positive way.

 

But May really is highlighted by Mars in Libra turning direct next week on May 19th at 9 degrees Libra. We’re already in this energy – and can feel it now. Shortly we’ll be able to move forward with any projects that have gotten intercepted since Mars’ retrograde period began on March 1st. I’ll be writing more about this shortly.

 

Then next month, from June 7th to July 1st, Mercury will be retrograde, so anytime after Mars turns direct on May 19th would be a great time to begin any and all Mercury Rx Preps, like computer backups and vehicle maintenance.

The good news is that the intense and clearing energy of this week will be allowing (or forcing) challenging or problem areas to surface to be seen clearly and unmistakably so they can be healed, released and cleared. More transformation for us… that’s a good thing.

Weekend alert! Two oppositions and a square…may be ouchy.

Image2

 

Over the next few days we’ll be experiencing two very critical oppositions. First, the Sun will oppose Saturn on Saturday, May 10th and then Venus in Aries will oppose still retrograde Mars on Sunday, May 11th. Plus, also on May 11th, Mercury will square off with Neptune.  By the end of the weekend, there’s a possibility for hurt feelings (ours or someone near us) and feeling unappreciated (us or someone near us!).  Walk softly!

 

Between the Sun opposing Saturn and Venus opposing Mars, we’ve got a potentially challenging and difficult weekend. Throw in the aspect of Mercury scuffling with bewildering Neptune, at the very least our energy will be low, maybe angry or depressed. We may feel “wronged” somehow. We might feel down and we, or someone nearby, may be acting cold and/or stubborn. Responsibility and obligation will surround relationships. This weekend could also see weak or conflicted relationships ending. In fact, anything that’s run its course will be in the process of falling away. And maybe harshly. Those with sensitive points in their charts between 18-23 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius will feel this energy the strongest and will be more seriously impacted. On the positive side, all oppositions offer us the gift of being able to see both sides of an issue and reach balance and/or compromise. If that’s what we want. The choice will decidedly be ours.

 

And also on Sunday, Mothers’ Day, the aspect of Mercury squaring Neptune can add to the confusion and low energy. Misunderstandings, uncertainty, and things “not being as they appear, will be the order of the day. Be careful with words and all communication. If possible, listening rather than talking might be the wise choice since words can come back to haunt at a later time – with serious conflict or a nasty challenging clarification required.

 

However, on a positive note, Sunday would be an excellent day for spiritual or creative matters. Just be prepared and know that this weekend, especially Sunday, Mothers’ Day, could be emotional and knee-deep in misunderstandings – so walk softly! Otherwise there could be conflict, or hurt feelings and endings, especially in strained relationships of all kinds.

 More later,

Much love,

Skye
