Astrology trends for the week of June 6
You’re likely to start this week feeling a bit frisky, when the Sun and Venus move into conjunction in Gemini on Monday evening. This is a very good aspect under which to have a flirtatious, lighthearted fling, but bear in mind that Gemini’s influence probably means it won’t turn out to be a long-term thing. You’ll be ready to move on as soon as the New Relationship Energy begins to cool. If such an affair isn’t your thing, this is a good time for social gatherings, or even a money-making business venture.
Early on Tuesday morning, both the Sun and Venus are quincunx to Pluto in Capricorn. This serves as an extra warning to keep things light and be honest about your intentions with any fling you’ve started. Possessiveness, jealousy, selfishness, or less than ethical behavior will result in some serious turmoil in your life. I’m a true advocate of the idea that consenting adults get to do what consenting adults want to do. But part of consenting is that all parties have to be fully aware of exactly what it is that they are agreeing to. If you can’t handle this rule, it would be best that you take a break from matters of the heart (or other bodily parts) to figure out what it is you truly want, and why it is you can’t be honest with everyone, including yourself, about it. And if your partner can’t play by those same rules, it is time to walk away.
Wednesday evening sees Mercury in Taurus sextile to Chiron in Pisces. Now is the time to talk it out and find some emotional resolution. If you’ve been trying to process through some emotional turmoil, such as grief or feelings of guilt, but just not getting the closure or clarity you need to move forward, this is an excellent time to start talk therapy, or at least to seek out an impartial ear to unburden yourself to. But you must make sure you listen to what is being said, both to you and by you. There are likely more lessons you need than you are anticipating. Try to put aside your fears and listen up.
Watch what you do and what you say (or at least how you say it) on Thursday. Mercury in Taurus moves into opposition of Mars in Scorpio early in the afternoon, leaving us all spoiling for a fight. Our mood is going to be touchy, argumentative, and excessively fault-finding. And we aren’t likely to sugarcoat our opinions. More likely, the sarcasm and backhanded compliments will be flying today. Do your best to keep your temper in check, as well as your comments to yourself. I’m not generally one to advocate leaving things left unsaid, but, if ever there was a day to make an old adage your mantra of the day, this is the one: If you don’t have anything nice to say, it’s best to say nothing at all.
The need to self-edit continues into Friday, when the Leo Moon squares off against Mars in Scorpio. Under this aspect, you are likely to feel the need to draw attention to yourself, making every head turn your way as you make your Grand Entrance. Remember there is a very fine line between stealing the scene and making a scene. This aspect guarantees that sarcastic tongues will be wagging, and your capital D Drama is likely to cause hurt feelings, jealousies, or lingering resentments. Today it’s best to remain one of the crowd to avoid conflicts you don’t need in your life. There will be other days, ones astrologically better suited, in which to get your attention whore needs met.
Saturday offers us a very welcome chance to change gears, in the form of the Moon and Jupiter moving into conjunction in Virgo. Here, we will be looking for the stimulation of a new challenge, especially a challenge that will stimulate our bank accounts. Your judgment and reasoning will be sound, making this an excellent day to lay out your step-by-step strategy for realizing your financial or career goals.
Late Sunday morning, Venus in Gemini is sextile to Uranus in Aries. This aspect is one that favors the risk-taker, as well as being good for business. It’s also an aspect that strengthens business relationships. This is the time to surround yourself with progressive-minded people, those who not only think outside the box, but aren’t even sure where the box is. Now is the time to break new ground if you want to reap the rewards. Sunday evening sees Mercury leave the slow and steady energy of Taurus and enter the vibrant and novelty-seeking energy of Gemini. During this time, you’re likely to be interested in accumulating facts and knowledge, at least surface knowledge, about a broad range of topics. Gemini is a fickle sign, so as soon as your new interest stops being new, you’ll be ready to move on to something else. The good news is that this is home territory for Mercury, and your ability to communicate through the spoken and written word will be very strong over the next month. You will be able to size up your audience at lightning speed, and tailor your message so that it will be best received. This is a good time for negotiating to get what you need and what you want.
I hope this helps you have a great week!
