(Mercury in Cancer sextiles Uranus in Taurus, 10:16 am)

*All Times EDT

Today, we may be receiving a heavenly deposit into our “genius” bank account (Uranus in Taurus) potentially raising our personal “brilliance quotient” to record-new levels! But will it be enough to cover the rent or the mortgage? Or to put food on the table? (Typical Mercury in Cancer concerns.) Or maybe help to finance a brand new shiny Tesla? Unfortunately, only “Who” knows. And, rather predictably, “Who” is choosing to remain exasperatingly mute on the topic. Guess we will have to fashion our own ending to the story…To be continued! 🙂

Seriously, Mercury sextile Uranus can be a very cool, energizing influence for us, cognitively speaking. This planetary aspect is associated with sudden flashes of insight or intuition, ingenuity, innovation. Needless to say, a great day to jot down our ideas, even if we do not act upon them, just yet. Additionally, today may be an excellent time to seek out creative financing or funding for projects related to the home or family. Or to try out fresh new approaches with homefront issues. 

Question for Today: What is a more “off-the-wall” idea of yours that has really paid off for you in a big way?

On This Day in History: On June 7, 1965, The Supreme Court of the United States decides on Griswold v. Connecticut, effectively legalizing the use of contraception by married couples.

Regarding the astrology that day: Feminine Venus had just entered Cancer at one degree (the sign of the womb/family). The Moon had also shifted into matrimonial Libra, mid-morning. Jupiter (affiliated with judges and courts) and Mercury (decisions) were also conjunct in detached, cerebral Gemini and exactly square to change-oriented Uranus in health-related Virgo; and Saturn (convention, restrictions) in dissolving Pisces was in a close trine with accepting Neptune in sexual, reproductive rights Scorpio.

Cosmic Weather:

(Mercury enters Cancer at 4:04 pm)

*All times EDT

“It seems my heart is made of tissue paper; I wish the world would handle it more delicately.” Richelle E. Goodrich

The “Winged Messenger’s” transit through maternal Cancer (until June 26th) enhances our sensitivity to our environment and our emotions. With Mercury’s passage through the sign of the Crab, there can be more of a mental fixation with wanting to logically understand/figure out/detail what we are feeling, in the present moment, as well as wanting to chronicle what we have gone through in the past. Accordingly, this placement of Mercury is particularly excellent for studying such things as history and genealogy. (Carl Jung, b. July 26, 1875, who coined the phrase “collective unconscious” had both his Mercury and Venus conjunct in Cancer; this concept refers to the idea that our deepest unconscious mind is passed down to us, genetically, and is not based upon personal experience.)

With Cancer also being a cardinal water sign, Mercury in Cancer can impact our communication style in such a way that our emotions or private inner world are potentially more apt to bubble up and spill over into our spoken or written words now, which can result in our revealing, perhaps, on occasion, more about ourselves than maybe we had intended. On the other hand, this placement of Mercury is excellent for helping us to connect/bond with other people on an emotional level. It is also a very intuitive placement for Mercury. (*Note: Mercury will be re-entering Cancer on July 19th through August 12 due to its upcoming retrograde cycle.)

Overall, Mercury transiting through Cancer focuses our thoughts/generates news stories on home and family related matters; on antiques; women’s issues; on real estate and mortgages; on issues of patriotism, protectionism, homeland security; on agriculture, farming, or the food supply; on cooking (it is an ideal time to take cooking classes or write a cookbook); on the restaurant industry; the boating industry.

Question for Today: What part of your past do you consciously cling to the most?

Famous June 4 Birthdays: Angelina Jolie, Joyce Meyer, Michelle Phillips, Noah Wyle

“We need a backbone, not a wishbone.” Joyce Meyer

On This Day in History: On June 4, 1919, the US Congress passes the Women’s Suffrage Bill, the 19th Amendment.

Astrologically, that day, Venus (women), Jupiter (expansion, opportunity, diversity, politics) and Pluto (reform, transformation) were all in the sign of Cancer, which is also the Sun Sign for the U.S. Pluto was also applying (one-degree) to a square to Wounded Healer Chiron, in new beginnings Aries.

“There never will be complete equality until women themselves help to make laws and elect lawmakers.” Susan B. Anthony

Today’s Astrology June 3, 2019: New Moon in Gemini

Cosmic Weather:

(New Moon in Gemini at 12 degrees, 6:01 am)

(Mercury in Gemini sextiles Vesta in Aries, 9:08 am)

*All times EDT

“The more I read, the more I acquire, the more certain I am that I know nothing.” Voltaire

Today we have a chance for a clean slate with a New Moon in “thinker” Gemini… Well, almost! Not sure if it is ever possible to wipe out all that has gone before – even though with a plethora of new, technologically-improved, enhanced cleaning products on the market, it could be that many of our more “dubious, unsanitized ideas” are likely treading on very shaky ground, at the moment…:)

Regardless, a New Moon in “cerebral” Gemini today puts a spotlight on, among other things, our thoughts and ruminations; our curiosity; our ability to learn new things, as well as gather and present information; our aptitude to be conversational, witty, humorous; to be a jack-of-all-trades, a busybody, a social media maven, a talking head.

Since the Moon in Gemini also prefers to keep a rather frenetic pace, expect to be flitting along, the next few weeks, primarily in a vertical position. This monthly lunar period celebrates/fosters a deep curiosity about our environment – and all that is in it! We are also learning to be more flexible or versatile now; less wedded to our ideas/viewpoints. In fact, the truth is, we are likely to be all over the place, for the foreseeable future. Virtual nomads! Able to make do with just the clothes on our backs – and perhaps a designer purse, or two (can’t relinquish everything that we fought so hard for during the previous Lunar cycle in “thingy” Taurus).

Mercury in Gemini is also the ruler of today’s New Moon and it is forming a sextile to Vesta in “I am” Aries. This should allow us to mentally focus quickly on matters at hand, and to take direct action, if necessary. Especially as it pertains to putting forward our own initiatives/agendas – particularly the idea of birthing something new, and personal. (Vesta reveals where we can be very purposeful or dedicated.)

Some favored activities for a New Moon in Gemini: joining a book club; taking a speed-reading course; learning a new language; writing or blogging; enjoying get-togethers with siblings, neighbors, and friends; attending lectures or seminars; going sight-seeing; taking short trips.

“You may keep wandering in life all the time but one day life will take you to the place where you are meant to be!” Avijeet Das

Question for Today: What are you most curious about? Also, on the flip side, what are you least curious about?

Famous June 3 Birthdays: Anderson Cooper, Tony Curtis, Josephine Baker, Allen Ginsburg, Jefferson Davis, Michelle Keegan.

“The tide of history only advances when people make themselves fully visible.” Anderson Cooper

On This Day in History: On June 3, 1967, Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” reaches #1.

“It’s the rough side of the mountain that’s the easiest to climb; the smooth side doesn’t have anything for you to hang on to.” Aretha Franklin

Today’s Astrology June 2, 2019: Venus Trines Pluto

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

(Venus in Taurus trines Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn)

Today’s insightful Venus-Pluto trine (11:41 pm) potentially serves to make us more aware of what it is that we genuinely value or desire in our lives. It is as if the layers are peeled back now and we are able to see what we must have – or what is non-negotiable for us – in order to feel an internal/external sense of richness/safety/security. Correspondingly, there may also be a greater focus on solidifying, strengthening, or deepening our roots/connections/attachments.

Additionally, Venus-Pluto can also ignite our passions as well as unleash or invite more healing forms of energy. Venus-Pluto is often associated with “breathing new life” into old relationships. It might also be a good time to get our finances in order, or to commune with nature.

(Balsamic Moon)

The Waning Moon is in its Balsamic (Dark) Phase, entering communicative Gemini (at 7:47 am). This Lunar period is best for wrapping up or finishing things, and for rest or renewal, in preparation for tomorrow’s New Moon in Gemini.

“Rest and be thankful.” William Wordsworth

*All times EDT

Question for Today: What is something that you are “non-negotiable” about?

Famous June 2 Birthdays: Marquis de Sade, Johnny Weissmuller, Charlie Watts, Kyle Petty, Rachel Ray, Dana Garvey

“Conversation, like certain portions of the anatomy, always runs more smoothly when lubricated.” Marquis de Sade

On This Day in History: On June 2, 1875, Alexander Graham Bell (b. March 3, 1847) makes the first sound transmission. (Bell was a Scottish-born scientist, inventor, engineer, and innovator who is credited with inventing and patenting the first practical telephone. He also founded the American Telephone and Telegraph Company in 1885.)

Astrologically, on June 2, 1875, the Sun was in “communications-guru” Gemini, at 11 degrees, and exactly sextiling inventive Uranus, at 11 degrees of creative, authoritative Leo. Pioneering Mars was also retrograde in Capricorn and in a tight opposition (within one degree) to Mercury in Cancer (Mercury rules telephones and communication and the sign of Gemini).

Meanwhile, energizing Mars was also transiting Graham’s 10th house of career (on June 2nd), and also sextile (within one degree) his natal Saturn (Saturn is not only the natural ruler of the tenth house, it can also represent our individual accomplishments/contributions to the culture).

Finally, Mercury in Cancer at 4 degrees was also exactly trining Bell’s Saturn at 4 degrees of imaginative Pisces. Mercury-Saturn energy can solidify or be foundational for communications. It also can symbolize scientific breakthroughs and enhanced powers of concentration.

“Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work in hand. The Sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.”  Alexander Graham Bell

Today’s Astrology June 1, 2019: Venus Quinqunx Jupiter

Tags

, , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

(Venus in Taurus quinqunx Jupiter Retrograde in Sagittarius)

With sweet, amiable Venus still deposited in stabilizing, enduring Taurus, and just coming off of a trine (yesterday) to cautious Saturn, in strategic Capricorn, having a sense of permanence or safety in relationships/money matters/or with possessions is something that is more paramount now for the ever smooth-functioning of our groovy psyches.

That is why today may require some extra finesse/discipline/innovativeness, on our part, in being able to concoct tasty lemonade from any of the sour lemons that may criss-cross our path now. Mainly referring here to placating, ‘big hip Jupiter’ in Sadge and his sudden, lusty, disruptive desire/need/vision to ‘fly the coop,’ so to speak, and take us along as willing hostages/subjects/participants on a decadent excursion to some exotic, faraway place. Or, wherever one can go to, for that matter, in which a person can part with considerable sums of cash/money/moolah in a blink of an eye! All experiences incurred, of course, from Jupiter’s perspective, for our own edification and/or glory so that we do not become too pot bound and shrivel up and die while we still have hefty mortgages and our kids’ college tuition, to pay off! 🙂

“I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it’s very difficult to find anyone.’ 

I should think so — in these parts! We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!” J.R.R. Tolkien

Question for Today: What might tempt you to “throw caution to the wind” now – and how might it be worth it?

Famous June 1st Birthdays: Marilyn Monroe, Morgan Freeman, Heidi Klum, Brigham Young

“Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together.” – Marilyn Monroe

On This Day in History: On June 1, 1971, Ed Sullivan’s final TV show on CBS.

Astrologically, Sullivan (b. 9/28/1901) had transiting Uranus (harbinger of change) in public-arena Libra exactly square to his natal Saturn (a signifier of retirement) in the career sign of Capricorn.

“Tonight, we have a really big show for you…” – Ed Sullivan (b. 9/28/1901)

Today’s Astrology May 31, 2019: Venus Trines Saturn

Cosmic Weather:

“It is quality rather than quantity that matters.” Seneca

In a culture that is often obsessed with having more, more, more, it can sometimes be very challenging or uncomfortable for us to wrap our arms around the idea of less, less, less! Even though we may, conceivably, be forfeiting quality for quantity, in the process. But today, buckaroos, this may not exactly be the case because material girl Venus in sensual, bullish Taurus is forming a flowing trine to lean and mean Saturn (11:26 am), which is retrograde in utilitarian, pro-business mentality Capricorn. Meaning, or suggesting, Venus is more receptive now to ‘doing more with less’ if traveling lighter helps to solidify her queenly position on the throne of the highly coveted mountaintop in her particular locale. Yes, “giving up to move up!” could well be our noble battle cry for today.

Overall, Venus-Saturn energy tends to make us more cautious, reliable, and responsible in monetary matters as well as affairs of the heart. We are more value-minded or value-driven and thinking more in terms of longevity and endurability, instead of being appeased by quick fixes. It could also be that we derive more personal fulfillment or enjoyment now from immersion into our work/duties/craft/art. Too, because Saturn is retrograde, it’s possible that we are re-visiting or returning to something perceived to be more anchoring from the past now – may be a former relationship or a prior financial situation/scenario – with shining hopes, that by doing so, we will be creating more of a sense of security or stability for ourselves, in our present-day world. We also may be able to recognize or spot, now, the value, or the gift of something from our past/past experiences that we maybe did not fully appreciate or understand, until today. Thinking here, too, this could possibly relate to some previous advice or mentoring from someone we looked up to/or maybe still look up to (a Saturnian authority figure/parental figure).

Later this evening, intellectual Mercury in Gemini is also forming an awkward quinqunx aspect to obsessive, investigative Pluto, retrograde in Capricorn (11:13 pm), which could orient us to becoming more mentally fixated on certain events of our past, especially on those things which, perhaps, have never really been resolved or settled fully to our satisfaction. Although, ruminating upon those sorts of things now could also be a bit tricky or problematic, in terms of being able to positively add to our sense of well-being, as it may be harder for us to put a more objective or neutral face or spin on things now. This is partly because Mercury-Pluto energy tends to want to hone in on whatever is broken, taboo, or forbidden instead of on what is right and/or working in our lives. In other words, there is often more of a suspicious vibe at play when these two cosmic characters pair up.

“To find out if she really loved me, I hooked her up to a lie detector. And just as I suspected, my machine was broken.

Today’s Astrology May 21, 2019: Sun and Mercury Enter Gemini

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

“When the trust account is high, communication is easy, instant, and effective.” Stephen R. Covey

Both the Sun (will) and Mercury (thinking) leave slow-moving, plodding Taurus, this morning, and enter breezy, cerebral Gemini, the communication sign, and the sign of the Twins. This sign is also ruled by Mercury so the ‘Winged Messenger’ feels right at home here.

For the next few weeks, with the Sun and Mercury in Gemini, we get to passionately, and independently, channel our inner reporter and astutely relay all the news/gossip/goings-on in our neck of the woods – whether it’s fit to print or not! 🙂

Gemini relishes making observations, drawing comparisons, taking notes, gathering/imparting/receiving information. It’s very social energy, yet emotionally detached, at the same time, which might be a very good thing now since assertive Mars is moving through feelings-oriented, reactive Cancer. The Gemini vibe here sort of balancing out the Cancer moodiness, self-protectiveness. Too, with both the Sun and Mercury deposited in articulate Gemini, there’s a better chance for us to be able to outwardly voice/write/express what’s going on inside of us, on an emotional level.

Meanwhile, Gemini also rules transportation and travel (especially trips of shorter duration), so we may find ourselves being a lot more mobile, over the next month or so. It might also be a time when we may think about getting a new car or be attending to vehicle-related matters.

Additionally today, the Sun and Mercury are in superior conjunction at 0 degrees of Gemini (9:06 am). A superior conjunction is the equivalent, so to speak, of a Full Moon, which means there’s an increased likelihood that we could experience sudden moments/flashes of greater clarity/brilliance now, including receiving answers/solutions to problems, or come across information/teachings/the right questions that greatly expand/fuel our awareness. We may also be more effective at communicating our thoughts and ideas now.

Famous May 21 Birthdays: Raymond Burr, Andrei Sakharov, Al Franken, Mr. T

On This Day in History: On May 21, 1881, the American Red Cross is founded by Clara Barton, a pioneering nurse and humanitarian.

The Astrology that day: The Moon was in sympathetic/empathic Pisces, the sign of self-sacrifice and service to others. There was also a stellium of five planets and Chiron in anchoring, earthy Taurus, the sign in which our intentions are made manifest, including Venus (love) and Saturn (duty and responsibility), which were exactly conjunct in Taurus at 5 degrees; Jupiter (goodwill ambassador, philanthropist) was also at 9 degrees of Taurus and exactly trining Uranus (humanitarian, innovator) in healing Virgo.

“I have an almost complete disregard of precedent and a faith in the possibility of something better. It irritates me to be told how things always have been done… I defy the tyranny of precedent. I cannot afford the luxury of a closed mind. I go for anything new that might improve the past.” Clara Barton

Cosmic Weather:

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.” J.M. Barrie

We kick off the work week laden with a fair measure of wanderlust in our sneakers with the waning Moon in “let me gallop alone in the rat race” Sagittarius.

The Moon makes an early morning square to “beam me up” Neptune in transcendental Pisces (6:31 am). Then around lunchtime (1:04 pm), Luna merges with oversizing Jupiter (potentially a headache for the kitchen staff as all the offerings at the buffet bar, no doubt, will suddenly disappear).

Anyway, this theme of excess, pretty much pervades the rest of the day, as self-indulgent Venus in throaty Taurus also forms a sesquiquadrate aspect (11:19 pm) to jolly Jupiter. Of course, this day can also have a lot of positivity to it as Venus-Jupiter together can make us feel more optimistic and playful.

The Moon also goes VOC after its midday conjunction with Jupiter so it’s best to put the finishing touches on your magnifico creations instead of birthing anything new. The Nightime Goddess enters lean, mean Capricorn, early tomorrow morning (3:56 am), when it will be time, again, to crack the whip!

The Sun is also spending its last full day in builder/banker Taurus today, for the year, so there could be a final push to “get ‘er done,” especially good for attending to stuff that will make us feel more anchored in the world.

*All times EDT

On This Day in History: On May 20, 1873, Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis patent the first blue jeans with copper rivets.

The astrology that day: Contractually-minded Mercury was separating from an exact conjunction to Fashionista Venus in form-fitting Taurus. Pioneering Mars was also in design-oriented Libra and forming an exact quinqunx to the empowering Sun in “let’s make some money, honey” Taurus.

Today’s Astrology May 18, 2019: Full Moon in Mysterious Scorpio

Tags

, , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

“Every single cell in the human body replaces itself over a period of seven years. That means there’s not even the smallest part of you now that was part of you seven years ago.” Steven Hall

It is a perplexing mystery how we often feel that we are basically the same person, day after day. Yet, in reality, for all practical purposes, we are in a continuous state of death and renewal while we are breathing, hanging out on the earth plane. At least, this is the case from the standpoint of our physical being. On the other hand, it is the persistent sense of our own seemingly unchanging ‘inner essence’ which most likely provides us with the notion we are more of an immutable force to be reckoned with! But even then, the idea of an enduring ‘inner essence’ is also a bit weird and baffling, when you think about it, because how does this ‘inner essence’ manage to keep itself glued together, in one piece, to begin with, when everything around it keeps wanting to turn into mush and or wither away? Maybe even more importantly, how does it manage to keep its hair perfectly coiffed, in all instances? That is the real 64-thousand dollar question! 🙂

Anyway… Today’s Full Moon in ‘life and death’ Scorpio, at 27 degrees of the sign, seemingly invites us to humbly bask in the full awareness of the infinite, deeper mysteries of life that perennially surround us, engulf us, maybe even haunt us, at times. So many things can potentially ‘spook us out’ on a daily basis, if we let them, especially in this age of 24/7 news coverage. Although, with the Full Moon in investigative Scorpio it could be that we possess the proper amount of emotional fortitude, unflappable courage, and perceptual curiosity now to want to willingly visit those dicey places/areas/dramas that tend to otherwise make us want to naturally recoil out of fear or trepidation. It is like we know now that we must move through, or go beyond, all the scary stuff to get to the ‘other side.’ The seemingly ‘safe side’ where all the monsters are benevolently slewed, our spouses are fairly subdued and obedient – for the most part – and all is right (healed) with the world! At least, for a little while. Till the next domino falls…

Scorpio is also the sign in which we take the trash or garbage out, both literally and symbolically. In the body, it is associated with the rectum and bladder, the two workhorses of elimination. What goes in (Sun in Taurus), must come out (Moon in Scorpio), at the risk of sounding crude. Interesting, too, isn’t it, how there is often so much shame, embarrassment, including yes, even mystery, associated with this particular, and much-needed body function. So hopefully Luna now, deposited in her full-figure form in seductive Scorpio, the premier snakeskin shedding energy, will inspire those of us, who are so inclined, to pitch/purge/recycle whatever is redundant/outworn in our lives, in order to make room for the new/nurturing/tantalizing ingredients that will, ideally, keep us standing upright and moving vigorously forward, a while longer.

As luck would have it, too, the passionate, intense Scorpio Moon is also occurring on the same day that lovable Venus is conjunct wild and wacky Uranus in hedonistic Taurus, an astrologically rebellious/liberating influence that poises us/tempts us to want to temporarily break with convention/tradition/our mates in order to pursue out of the ordinary worldly pleasures/values. To decadently indulge in new sensations/social/romantic experiences that likely move us outside of our rigid/stuffy comfort zones and straight into the dog house!

Thinker and orator Mercury is also exactly trining insightful, dark horse Pluto today, Scorpio’s modern-day ruler. So we are also possibly able to seduce/influence/persuade others now with our power thoughts, ideas, and spoken/written words in a non-threatening, yet formidable manner. This is also an excellent intellectual aspect for solving puzzles, riddles.

On This Day in History: On May 18, 1897 “Dracula” by Irish author Bram Stoker is published by Archibald Constable and Company in London.

The astrology that day: The illuminating Sun in sensual, neck-ruling Taurus was exactly opposite maverick Uranus and authoritative Saturn. Both of these planets were also exactly conjunct in ‘mistress/master of the night’ Scorpio!

Cosmic Weather:

“He who thinks little errs much…” Leonardo da Vinci

Thinker Mercury in practical Taurus is forming an awkward aspect (quinqunx) to philosophical Jupiter (retrograde) in enthusiastic Sagittarius today (5:48 pm EDT) so there may be a tendency to gloss over pivotal details in a bid to view things from a larger, big-picture lens. While this aspect can help put us in touch with our revered hopes or dreams for the future, we are also potentially more likely to discount or override good old-fashioned common-sense now. Since Jupiter is also retrograde, it could be that we are revisiting a tantalizing situation from the past now. Still trying to ‘bring it down from the clouds.’ However, it’s probably not going to be happening, just yet, again, as, more than likely, more flesh still needs to be applied to the demanding Saturnian bones for this delicate thing to fly on its own. A good question, maybe, to ask ourselves today, is, “What am I not seeing here that could be a game changer?”

Famous May 17 Birthdays: Dennis Hopper, Sugar Ray Leonard

On This Day in History: On May 17, 1900, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” is first published by L. Frank Baum with illustrations by William Wallace Denslow in Chicago. The astrology that day: Jupiter, Uranus, and the North Node were conjunct in story-telling Sagittarius and initiating Mars had just entered 0 degrees of manifesting Taurus. Communicator Mercury was also in Taurus and separating from a sextile to artistic Venus in “there’s no place like home” Cancer.

Hope you enjoy your Friday!
