The first day of the new lunar cycle makes the emotional challenges it will bring clear. The Moon conjoins Mars in Cancer mid-day, just as Mars perfects a square to Jupiter in Libra. The game here is to keep troubled emotions and connections from ruining the positive potentials offered by Jupiter. One of the difficulties here is that whatever anger or hurt Mars in Cancer brings up tends to be the kind held close to the vest, or perhaps inside it, making it difficult to get at and remediate the source of pain or unhappiness. Be patient with others’ moods, and try to extend the same favor to yourself.

Friday plays host to the New Moon in Cancer. Unwind a bit— make enough space for your feelings, as it will be the intimacies etched into their fabric which will characterize the coming weeks. The Mercury-Mars configurations during the rest of June and in early July will act as emotional purgatives, and the less poison you have in your system, the less likely that you’ll find yourself possessed by violent heaves.
In addition to washing out the toxic, make time to think about heals you, nurtures you, feeds you. Check your umbilical connection to that source, and make sure it’s in good working order.

A very-waning Moon in Gemini trines Jupiter, then squares Neptune today. Thursday afternoon is thus subject to jollity, followed by a touch of confusion or fogginess. It is a pleasant enough day, but may be lacking in energy due to the phase of the Moon, which will not rise tonight.

Wednesday begins with the conjunction of Mercury and the Sun. This moment, the superior conjunction, sees Mercury in line with the Earth, but on the far side of the Sun. Here the swift planet acts like a telescope, extending the mind’s reach outward, to the edges of mental space. The breadth of this vision provides an opportunity for reflection and insight.
This key moment in Mercury’s cycle just so happens to occur on the day of Mercury, and furthermore, the Moon shifts into Mercury-ruled Gemini during the afternoon, lending further support to this type of telescope-gazing. You would be remiss to not reserve a little time to consider and converse on this rather significant alignment.

Tuesday begins with the waning Moon in Taurus’ sextile with Mars in Cancer. Some irritations may come with this morning aspect, but those are likely to be quickly washed away by the Moon’s subsequent sextile with Neptune in Pisces. Things improve further with the Moon’s lovely afternoon conjunction with Venus in Taurus, a jewel of good fortune set into the gold of the day.
Tuesday evening has the honor of hosting the Sun’s annual ingress into Cancer, which marks the solstice. In Cancer, the Sun’s rays fall upon the tender, intimate and emotional, and illuminate the dynamics by which all created things are nurtured. The Sun will be in Cancer until July 22nd.
Mercury cross the same boundary only hours later, entering the Crab’s sign during the wee hours of night. Mercury will shift communications and cogitations toward the tender territory of the Crab’s interior until its ingress into the Lion’s sign on July 5th.
