Astrology Forecast for Creatives | Week of June 24th - too much of a good thing, disappearing love and money, hitting a limit, dropping an anchor, take care of your health, a need to adjust, speaking from our hearts and wanting an audience, change is good

SUNDAY - Venus opposes Jupiter and inconjuncts Saturn
MONDAY - Venus squares Neptune
TUESDAY - 3rd Quarter Moon Aries (Moon square Sun)
WEDNESDAY - Mercury enters Leo
THURSDAY - Sun squares Chiron and sextiles Uranus, Venus inconjuncts Pluto

On SUNDAY - and this will impact the first couple days of the work-week, we have Venus (in "I want a little of this and a little of that" Gemini) opposing "I want it all" Jupiter and inconjuncting - that rock a hard place - Saturn. With Saturn and Jupiter both retrograde this is an old situation we are working with. We could be facing some kind of temptation to take something too far and it is not compatible with the rules/boundaries. This would not be a good time to buy something if we can't afford it for example. There is some kind of reality check here (Saturn) that could keep us from over-doing the Venus/Jupiter, which is a wonderful aspect of love and abundance, but could take things too far. There is some kind of limit/anchor that slows down the hope/opportunity.

EXAMPLE FOR Scorpio/Scorpio Rising - Venus is in your 8th house of other people's resources, other people's values, intimacy, other people's money, spouse's income, loans, debts, taxes, inheritance, death, rebirth, sex, reproduction. Jupiter is in your 2nd house and Saturn in your 3rd. Venus/Jupiter could create a tendency to spend too much money, expect too much of a payout from something or give too much in an intimate relationship or take too much from someone else. Saturn in your 3rd house of communication is giving you a "no", a limit, a deadline, a contractual obligation - something that turns Venus in Gemini's temptation to choose into something that is outside your control. A reality check. This will not be an entirely new situation. I know a Scorpio rising whose tax return was never received by the IRS (he mailed a paper return) and now has lost his health insurance subsidy (and so his health insurance) due to a missed deadline. This is a kind of 2nd/3rd/8th house mash-up.

On MONDAY, Venus (in Gemini) will square Neptune at home in Pisces. Venus rules our money, love, relationships, values, resources and self-esteem. With Venus in Gemini challenged by dreamy, foggy Neptune things could be CONFUSING. Watch your benjamins.

What looks at first like a smorgasbord of fancy lunch options (that Venus/Jupiter!) could turn out to be a choice between a baloney sandwich that's been pulled out from the couch cushions and a ham sandwich that's been rolled around on the sidewalk. Just how hungry are we exactly?

DOUBLE CHECK everything. That too good to be true thing could just drift away.

What are the actual facts around what you WANT? What do you really know? Who/what do you really trust?

Keep assumptions to a minimum. We could come to regret the things we jump into, so take your time. Boundaries are blurry. Answers only bring more questions. Avoid alcohol and drugs under this aspect - the effects will be magnified.

By TUESDAY we are dealing with the Moon (in Aries) squaring the Sun (in Cancer). Aries is teaching us to stand on our own two feet (stop smothering me Cancer, you wimp!) and Cancer is teaching us to gather people closer to us for our mutual security and protection (stop being so selfish Aries, you asshole!).

We need some kind of balance between independence/courage and cooperation/caring now.

Maybe between home - that home/family/home business/family business/real estate/relocation/renovation/mother/vulnerability thing, I keep going on and on about - and independent (or new/brave) ACTION. Maybe we need to appear strong, but a weakness/vulnerability is out in the open, too. This is tension/crisis - the need to adjust. 

On WEDNESDAY - Mercury (communications, information, our mental processes, siblings, local community, commerce, transportation) says hasta-la-vista to watery Cancer and moves into fiery LEO (until his/her upcoming retrograde brings us back to Cancer - don't toss those tissues just yet people!). 

Leo is the space we carry what 'makes us special'.

With Mercury (communication, intellect) here it will be easier to put our 'special' into words and to connect with the ideas and conversations that will push forward whatever we are most passionate about.

We will want our words to be heard and appreciated now. So will other people. Even the most reticent among us will want an audience. Our thinking/ideas (Mercury) can catch fire now (Leo).

Speaking from our hearts will connect us to other people's hearts. Encouraging words will matter.

This is very powerful energy. Leo is our superpower and should be used wisely. People will hear us with their heart and well as their head.

This gives the potential for hearts to expand as well as to be broken into little, tiny pieces. Keep this in mind.

Leo is a fixed fire sign, so words can burn now and words can dig us even more rigidly into our positions.  

With Leo there is great opportunity for win-win and also for 'nobody wins'. 

The energy right now is excellent for teaching us how we express what we are passionate about. It's very supportive of 'top of the mountain' heart-filled type of proclamations and proposals. Do people listen to us? Does what we say matter? We will care about this kind of stuff now.

Keep in mind with Mercury going to go retrograde over whatever we have going on now - we are going to be re-vising re-viewing, re-working this Leo situation - what our heart wants, what makes us special, what we are proud of, the situation with children and creative projects in July.

The Moon in Aries is running into trouble today so give yourself and everyone else a break. Good for independent work.

On THURSDAY, the Sun will square Chiron and sextile Uranus as Venus inconjuncts Pluto. This looks dicey. Venus/Pluto looks like an adjustment is needed around our money and their money, an intimacy issue, sex, bigger financial issues - bend, so we don't break. The Sun square Chiron speaks of tension/crisis - something painful - maybe around that home/family/mother, etc situation or maybe family/independence issues whatever this is - and the pain will trigger fears and insecurity - the solution is that Uranus sextile - a light is shined on something different, something unexpected and forward leaning - lean THAT way.

This is a very up and down week. Health issues should be attended to promptly.

We don't have the day-long void Moons like last week - thank goodness and some of last week's power struggles are starting to unwind (although keep in mind they are eclipse trigger points, so we aren't done with them).

Next week we move into eclipse season.

For now the Moon is waning - release, let things go, finish stuff up. 

xo all

Note - last week we had that Mars/Pluto/Saturn (potential war) opposition and then when Neptune stationed retrograde and changed directions (escape, live to fight another day), Trump - who is probably more than a little bit psychic (and not fully tethered to any mental dock) - and whose natal  Neptune squares Mercury (his thinking) - changed his mind - he also changed his mind about a major ICE initiative. This seems to bode well for the July eclipses since last week's Mars/Mercury activity was a kind of preview and trigger point. The story isn't over, but maybe we can ESCAPE THE PAST (this energy is connected to 9/11) and do things differently this time. This applies to our personal situations, too - is there an escape hatch/clause/cushier landing than we expected, in here somewhere?

I think rather than do the dailies this week  I am going to work on some bigger, longer-term posts - let's see if we can put some puzzle pieces together if we step back a bit - including a post for July and finally get that Saturn/Pluto stuff up. Stay tuned!
