Today's Astrology Forecast for Creatives | Tuesday, June 23, 2020 - get your work done so you can play later, illusions start to fade, the way things are for now not forever

The Moon moves into fiery, generous and attention-seeking Leo at 8:33AM EDT. She opposes a retrograde Saturn an hour later and sextiles a retrograde Venus at 6:05PM EDT.

The Moon in Leo wants to play and maybe Saturn says there is work to do or in Aquarius he says "think about the future. think about the group.". Moon/Saturn asks us to emotionally separate from what has been previously comforting/nurturing. Saturn is cold, but builds worlds and in Aquarius he is building the future.

Lucky for us, we will feel the sweet pull of Moon/Venus as the workday starts to draw to a close. Excellent evening for socializing, creativity, making friends, love and money.

The big news today, although it is of long-term consequence and mostly felt by people with planets/points near 20 degrees Pisces (or the other mutable signs - Gemini, Virgo, Sag) is - the station of Neptune retrograde.

We talked about THAT in the weekly:

"Neptune stations retrograde at 20 degrees Pisces (he will be retrograde until November 28th, when he will station direct at 18 degrees Pisces). Yes, Neptune moves so slowly we will spend five months going back and forth over two degrees!

(the last time Neptune stationed retrograde at 20 degrees Pisces was on June 23, 1856)

Collectively a retrograde Neptune means more realism, less imagination, our illusions are highlighted and then dimmed. 

It should help. It should help us to see straight. Our blurry visions will gradually come into focus as the tide goes out. We can revise/review our dreams.

Since Neptune rules viruses we should see a further lessening of the spread of the virus now (it might appear to ramp up a bit first when Neptune is strong and still).

On the other hand if we are depending on an illusion/those rose-colored glasses to get us through something/to make life bearable - Neptune retrograde can make things almost too real/too naked/less buoyant. Because again ... the tide goes out and we can see those colorful rocks at our feet are actually plain old rocks after all.

If we are directly impacted by this retrograde (if we have planets or points in this 'red zone' of the mutable signs - Pisces, Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius) - certain situations can intensify.

If our boundaries have become too thin, if we are too pie-in-the-sky idealistic about something, if we are believing in things that have no basis in reality, if we are escaping/indulging in addictive behaviors - we won't be able to avoid the ramifications of this stuff any longer. This can also be about the theme of our Pisces natal house.

If we have drained ourselves through too much Neptune - delusion, escape, self-sacrificing, compassion fatigue, turning the other cheek - and are exhausted - we will need to figure that out. Sometimes things have to get worse before they get better. The elephant behind the sofa will be standing on the coffee table.

And with Chiron in Aries, we are the ones who will have to make things better for ourselves. 

Keep in mind as always with Neptune - there is also powerful magic here. Pray, meditate, listen to music. Neptune rules not only what we have put away, but what is behind us. Our ancestors, and every good decision we've ever made in every life we've ever lived - is lined up to assist us through these times. Just ask."

So for today, think - early day best for independent work, taking care of responsibilities (or else they will be weighing on us anyway), later day great for fun, beauty and time with other people.
