There is but one bit of planetary action in Sunday’s skies. The Moon spends most of the day sailing lazily toward a sextile with the Sun in Gemini. This aspect between the luminaries provides a general level of harmony and lends it a mild warmth. After completing the sextile with the Sun, the Moon goes void-of-course until its wee-hour ingress into Virgo. Start nothing which you would have make a lasting impact during these hours, but do not fear to put work in on projects already underway. As the heavens portend little during a void Moon, it sets the stage for an lazy Sunday night. Late night, we hop back into the time-stream with the Moon’s entrance into Virgo and trine with Uranus in Taurus. There is thus a bit of nervous electricity running through the night’s wiring, a boon to night owls but bane to insomniacs.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The daylit portion of Saturday is dominated by the Moon’s conjunction with Rahu, the Dragon’s Head, and in opposition to not-quite-retrograde Mars. This is an inflammatory set-up. Though that fire might be directed toward achievement, there is an inflation of ego dynamics here which may make social situations more contentious than they need to be. It is thus a most auspicious time to get into fruitless internet disputes.
Evening is considerably more mellow than the day, courtesy of the Moon’s configuration with Jupiter. Just as the big planet takes up a lot of space, it also makes space.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The Moon in sensitive Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn this Friday morning, throwing an uncomfortable pall over the early hours of the day. The tension between stony Capricorn and squishy Cancer is further echoed by Mercury and Saturn’s opposition. Obligation and deadline weigh heavy on thoughts and communications during the daylight hours. If you need to complain — do. Sometimes you need to vent a little to get it all done.
Late night has its own dynamic. The Moon enters Leo and spends the witching hours in a square with Uranus and conjunction with Venus, reactivating yesterday’s Venus-Uranus square. Emotional revolutions, breakthroughs and breakdowns haunt the night hours, seeding potent dreams and til-dawn conversations.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Thursday begins with the Moon in Cancer activating the applying opposition between sensitive Mercury in Cancer and hard Saturn in Capricorn. This opposition pulls the mind toward obstacles and conversations toward the negative. Communication may be obstructed, and transportation delayed. The Moon floats free of this configuration mid-day, seeking the flowing embrace of Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. Though the Moon will make it into a trine with both of these comforting powers during the wee hours, Venus in Leo’s square with Uranus in Taurus provides a potentially jarring emotional note. Here Uranus disrupts standard patterns of relating and enjoying, perhaps for the better, perhaps not. Though it may be a disruption, the Moon’s harmonious aspects to Jupiter and Neptune tonight will do much to make it as smooth as possible.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The Sun and Moon conjoin invisibly in the mid-day sky. The New Moon in Gemini asks us to spot and consider the many conversations we’ve had over the last few weeks, and to reflect on all of the ideas and information which the winds blew our way. Some of these missives will become key components of what comes next, while others will find themselves marked spam. Take some time to sort through them.
Almost as if to celebrate the end of one lunar month and the beginning of another, Venus changes signs today, entering Leo during the afternoon hours. Venus’ movement into Leo sees a reversal of social orientation, as while Cancer is introverted and comfort-seeking, Leo is extraverted and performative. In Leo, Venus blesses works of self-presentation, promotion, marketing, leadership and performance. Venus will be in Leo until July 9th.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
