weekly astrology forecast | June 13 -19th, 2022 - Full Moon in Sag, Mercury comes home, the seductive meets the strategic, slaying the dragon to enter the castle


This is a BIG week!


We have TWO major alignments including a BIG Full Moon in Sagittarius, Mercury coming back into his own sign - prepare to be BUSY - and Mars meeting up with Chiron - OUCH.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius is on TUESDAY. Expect a BIG post! 


We have the Sag Moon (at 23 degrees, remember all those 23 degree NEW Moons last year interacting with Eris?) opposing the Gemini Sun while sextiling Saturn, squaring Neptune and trining (brakes off) ... you guessed it, Eris.

And we have Venus in her home sign of Taurus, meeting up with Pallas, crossing the North Node of Fate, then squaring Saturn and sextiling Neptune. Whew! BIG week for relationships, finances, our resources, values, self-esteem (and, of course, natal Taurus house themes).

Also, let's notice, once Mercury returns to Gemini on MONDAY, we will have FIVE planets moving through signs they rule/co-rule. This is highly unusual. Mercury in Gemini, Venus in Taurus, Mars in Aries, Saturn in Aquarius and Neptune in Pisces. This line-up,


(we also have a planetary line-up in the sky, from our view on Earth talked about HERE and a whole different thing, but maybe things are lining up or need to be)


strengthens those houses in your chart, since the natural ruler is HOME. There is no additional dispositor/planet/energy we need to be dealing with to get the house energy to its natural ruler, so  the energies can be most effectively themselves/function at their best and will make things SMOOTHER/more polished. The kings are in their castles.


This starts to unwind next week as Venus leaves Taurus and then unwinds more in early July. In the meantime - with our Gemini, Taurus, Aries, Aquarius and Pisces planets all home to their rulers right now there is not only significance to this ie a need for high functioning energies in multiple areas of life, there are surely also ways we can take advantage of this extra fire-power/wind at our backs!

Let's unpack the week.


MONDAY - Mercury enters Gemini

TUESDAY - Full Moon in Sagittarius, Venus conjunct Pallas

WEDNESDAY - Mars conjuncts Chiron

THURSDAY - Sun trine Saturn, Sun square Neptune, Venus conjunct North Node

SATURDAY - Venus square Saturn 

SUNDAY - Venus sextile Neptune

On MONDAY, Mercury returns to his/her home sign of Gemini. He first crossed into Gemini on April 29th and then again, moving backward, on May 22nd. If we have been back and forth over something - reviewing, rethinking, etc - we should have a much better/clearer idea of where this is all going and what we need to do. We are moving on.


We will feel a difference in the days ahead as information and communications switch from turtle pace (fixed earth) to rabbit (mutable air).

Increased choices, conversations and ideas will start to flow. We won't put everything to use, Gemini can be rather chatty, so some stuff will just move in and out, but the change in momentum will be noticeable, especially with the Sun in Gemini, too, so answering to a more Mercurian Mercury now. Keep in mind with Gemini there are more questions than answers and the information can sometimes be unreliable. But easy, adaptable conversations, new facts/information suitable for the moment, can pull everything forward now.


Mercury will start covering new ground in a few days and will be in Gemini until July 5th.

On TUESDAY, the Sagittarius Moon opposes the Gemini Sun at 23 degrees giving us this month's Full Moon, our annual Full Moon in Sagittarius. The Moon is sextiling stable Saturn (the Sun is trining) in Aquarius, squaring Neptune in Pisces and trining Eris in Aries. 


Expect a BIG post!


(this Moon is on the NRA's South Node 10th house, the Sun on their North Node, Jupiter on their Chiron, so let's hope some serious 'gun responsibility' legislation is in the news and not another freaking tragedy

This is also the day Venus meets up with Pallas - our traditionally feminine energy and our female warrior. Pallas's smart strategies, ability to recognize and get the most out of patterns, having the courage to fight certain battles as necessary - how to succeed/how to win - are merged with how we go about attracting what we want. This is a rather unstoppable combination, although having said that, Venus will square Saturn later in the week, so there will be stopping (the way through will be intuitive/Neptunian). Still, Venus conjunct Pallas - the seductive and the strategic - working together feels like a good thing. Stay away from anything manipulative/too complicated here, this is Taurus, keep things above board. Keep it simple. Venus/Pallas in Taurus attracts when we focus on what is best for us, what makes the most sense/cents.

On WEDNESDAY, Pallas's brother, warrior Mars, at 15 degrees Aries meets up with wounded healer Chiron. Very old wounds are triggered around men, masculinity, our ability to take care of ourselves/to be ourselves. Painful actions might be necessary. Situations can force us to confront a wound/weakness/vulnerability. We might be pushed to assert ourselves. It won't be comfortable. We might need to find constructive ways to deal with very old anger this week. 

On THURSDAY, the Sun, at 25 degrees Gemini - this is all part of the Full Moon story - trines Saturn and squares Neptune while Venus meets up with the North Node.


Here is the Sun's exact trine and square after he is opposed by the Sag Full Moon (something coming to light/to a fullness or culmination around our personal Sag house theme or the collective themes of legal situations, foreign situations, travel, educations, media, publishing, religion, our hopes/beliefs).  The trine points us toward what is stable/can be counted on, but is also an aspect where things might move too quickly, so be a bit extra cautious with conversations with authority, for example. The square to Neptune could mean words/conversations/information is confusing, exhausting, even misleading. Everything won't be quite as it seems. Or maybe we are seeing what we want to see. Stay frosty. Serious. Big girl/boy pants ON. Double-check. Slow down.


Since the Moon is doing all this FIRST, we will talk about this in the Full Moon post.

At the same time Venus, maybe in a preview of July's Mars/Uranus/North Node - offers us a vision of the FUTURE. She squared the Nodes at the end of March from 23 degrees Aquarius - a relationship, finance, resources, values crossroad. Now, she merges with our path FORWARD, in her own sign, so at her best, via what we are attracting/attracted to. This can be subtle, so pay attention to what comes to your attention. What makes you feel good/comfortable. The North Node (path forward) is in fixed earth Taurus. This won't be some 30" puzzle with 1000 teeny-tiny pieces we are doing on a 24" table. This will be more simple/stable. There is a directional arrow here somewhere - THAT WAY. Find it. Feel it.


And remember our seductive energy (what we want/attract) is working in combination with our strategic/game-plan/courage energy (Pallas!) and there is likely a reason we need all this firepower now, things might be challenging - be brave!

Note, Venus meeting the North Node happens just before she squares Saturn (exact on SATURDAY) and sextiles Neptune (exact on SUNDAY) - the reverse of the Moon this week who is squaring Neptune and sextiling Saturn. 


What does that mean?

Well, for one thing, these are two different houses of experience - Sagittarius (which we'll talk about in the Full Moon post) and Taurus - so two DIFFERENT areas of life.

The Taurus story-line shows us a path forward BUT is challenged by reality or a limit or the group or age/resource/responsibility/authority/finances/time - some Saturnian red light. Something that feels like a "no", something we are going to need to work through, probably can't be ignored. THIS is very quickly followed by an opportunistic sextile to Neptune, the dream (and keep in mind both Saturn and Neptune are retrograde, so both the challenges and opportunities have their roots in the past). So, the way through the challenge will be through Pisces - our intuition, imagination, escape, healing. Maybe Venus/Pallas (through us) recognize what can't be changed and need time to rest/return to an old dream. After her sextile to Neptune, Venus's final aspect in her home sign will be a smooth trine to Pluto next week. 


So, something is going to end well here! 


Keep moving. Move through the challenge, be smart, use your intuition, reconnect to the dream. This will be about your Taurus house theme and the collective Taurean themes - money, resources, values, self-esteem and Venus's other traditional themes - relationships, partners, balance, fairness, women.

I hope something here is helpful. 


I think after I work out the Full Moon post, this, and the next couple weeks will all make a great deal more sense!

Back with the Full Moon in Sagittarius post next.
