Capricorn Full Moon at 3°28′
*11:40am PDT; 12:40pm MDT; 1:40pm CDT; 2:40pm EDT
—June 24

Balances and imbalances are being both illuminated and highlighted today as a stingy, untrusting and otherly retrograded Saturnian-ruled Capricorn moon opposes a defensively guarded and slow-to-trust Cancer sun, demanding both a rigidly staunch motivation toward goals and the greedy nurturing of egoic needs.

This moon may be more significant to those of you who are not yet actively living your ideals…

You may begin to really, more honestly, understand how an edgy, existentialist out-of-place-ness might feel here in reality, especially if you’re entertaining the extremes of idealism… it is important to get a more practical grasp of what’s realistic, of what’s actually possible for you.

Perhaps you’ll tune more deeply into the actual plight of an/Other—an egoic reality other than your own, in other words—or the awkwardness or unwelcomed hindrances an/Other might take on… in an effort to realize these ideas of import?

Where do your own egoic hindrances lie?—how are they navigated, or catered to?

Are you able to align your balances of dis-ease despite any awkwardness or burden?

In what ways are your values and fundamentals evolving out from under you?—what must you abandon?

A Capricorn moon needs balance, but even more so, this Saturn-ruled moon needs to prove itself… or, rather, hold stance upon something, heavily—it will have the last word.

But you likely don’t yet have the words… or the umphf of whatever it is to move forward.

And so too, you will feel, in some capacity, that you must prove yourself in some very balancing way, or prove something to someone to achieve or obtain a sense of semblance of balance—yet, at every turn, there may be delay, frustration, or obstacle.

Pride before fall?

There is a disconnect occurring—and going inward is needed.

How awkward, indeed. There’s a discomfort occurring somewhere in your reality…

Typically, and modernly, a full moon is referred to as a climax or culmination point, with full energy at top notch—despite the very ancient symbology explicitly describing an absolute powerlessness… as Saturn has such a hold on today’s energies, this inaccurately modernly depicted climactic point may feel weighted, strained, harsh, or forced, as it does… or, entirely impotent, to the extent that it feels like a more extreme balsamic moon—surrendered.

Ultimately, a personal goal is being, or feels, thwarted—perhaps this is in an effort for you to recalibrate what’s really actually truly important to you?

Through this lowered energy it is an auspicious time, however, to go within—or to continue delving deep within, quietly and reflectively—to meditate, to embody, to contemplate, and to observe without opinion… without ego.

Make your ego porous. Will is of little importance, complaining is nothing, fame is nothing. Openness, patience, receptivity, solitude is everything.

★Wednesday Forecast

Sagittarius Gibbous Moon
—June 23

Today could present some challenges…

Details or deeper truths could be brought to light, though this may elude to a light which might be either extremely bright and hard to look at or a nice illuminating glow that enhances and entrances… either way, this could be a manifestation of Mercury stationing direct.

There’s quite possibly “something that needs to be said or announced…” and it’s also “time for a more mature attitude…” and if you speak clearly and truly your words will hold weight, and it’s also likely that a new level of wisdom will result if you’re willing to wrangle an old or emerging matter in a new way.

Today’s moon opposes this Mercurial stationing, which would suggest that whatever this circumstance is, for you, it is an opportunity for renewal in some capacity—a rebirth or revival… letting go of the old ways in an effort to embrace new beginnings. Truly, how appropriate, that a Sagittarian moon should illuminate such awakening… as such a jovial moon inspires forgiveness and faith in all future possibilities… Sagittarian energies couldn’t keep track of a grudge if it was offering reward—much too heavy to carry.

Grudges, however, could be an unfortunate default, as Venus opposes Pluto from the sensitivities of Cancer, though this would only cause pain and complication…

Today is a good day to see the present, truly, as a gift—and as the first day of a new beginning, despite it all.

‘One day…’ or Day One of your next chapter. Indeed.

This manner of perspective could be a bit more open to actual participation, as Saturn is exactly sextile to Chiron today, which would suggest that these current underlying vibrations offer much more capacity for open-hearted self-disciplining toward an honest effort to heal… but this will demand your devotion, and of course—a very real and upfront ability to participate in your own personal accountability.

Perhaps all that’s needed to begin anew is an open heart and an open mind—and that’s what a Sagittarian moon offers.

I seek more than diminishing pain. I want to experience a splendid life, a life full of gaiety, charming people, beautiful panoramas, outstanding adventures, and sublime interpersonal experiences. In place of squandering personal resources and wasting valuable time, yearning to satisfying these improbable goals, I wish to learn from gross errors. I desire to cease castigating myself for prior mistakes. A realistic personal goal is striving to achieve presence of mind, demonstrate consistent attentiveness to the present, rather than continually worry about the past or the future.❞

★Tuesday Forecast

Sagittarius Gibbous Moon
—June 22

Reverberations of adaptation and change linger and loll today, with a sincere “spiritual courage in facing life’s deeper questions…”¹

Further, “venturing into the unknown; penetrating a mystery; blazing a new path; seeing past a series of obstacles to the realization of one’s goals; moving incessantly from the known to the unknown, and thus every increasing one’s knowledge; puncturing false assumptions; exploring new directions of inquiry opened up by new understandings; and noble but lonely quests for the truth…”¹ are being highlighted, offering endless possibilities.

These newly introduced and seemingly endless possibilities, however, will require a deeper, more intentional look…

For instance, “in the current situation you may need to be very thoughtful and cautious about the moves you make and the risks that you are prepared to take… it’s important to take into account the wider picture and all the possible outcomes of any action taken.”²

In other words, venturing into the unknown and blazing new paths will require some forward-thinking strategy and personal accountability… “take one step at a time, thinking all the while, and move with purpose and forethought.”²

Further, “you may find new responses to life coming from deep within your mind and soul… this creation of new and essential levels of awareness is part of the natural result of inner changes and growth…”² and honestly, it would be a really good day to schedule a reading with an astrologer to better strategize all these new potentials.

One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.❞

★Monday Forecast

Scorpio Gibbous Moon
—June 21

The morning begins with a potential misunderstanding, or through a confusion sourced from within…

Further, there may be “an increase in the forms of communication that you can have access to, or in the amount of communications coming to you… you may find that there has been a failure in communicating your thoughts, ideas or emotions lately—something is being (or needs to be) done or laid down, in order to solve, repair or patch up the situation.”

Further still, “there is nothing to be achieved by worrying about any recent connection failures, however something should be done to set about making or repairing the necessary lines of communication…”

Ultimately, “it’s important to listen for the real truth in the communications that are being made, not to all the faint chitchat that surrounds what’s being said.”

Really tuning into the squishy meat and hidden nuance is likely necessary today—or compellingly regarded—not only in an effort to potentially avoid further confusion, but to open yourself to new or unknown realizations or awarenesses… some of which you might not prefer or enjoy.

There could be, however, an obvious shift in frequency or vibration later in the day as the moon makes a dreamy, intuited and watery grand trine with both Venus in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces… and a personal vulnerability will become available for potential integration.

Keep in tune with your inner light.

Discern any messages or information being shared.

Really listen.

Endure the differences in between.

It is quite likely that “there may be uncomfortable and even impossible choices to be made—at this time, however, removing one’s self from the situation may not be possible… the value of this experience is to attempt to create new understandings and standards in order to turn the imbalance to everyone’s advantage in whatever way possible—it may be impossible, but it is necessary to try.”

Also note that “any symptoms of ill health, unhappiness, mood swings and temper tantrums can be an indication of an inner battle… rising to the surface and now manifesting—take some care to work with the issue, as battling it out can lead to further problems.”

Sartre may have said that freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you… let’s maybe take that an actionable step further into personal accountability—the illusion of freedom can be actually experienced when you finally and energetically let go of what’s been done to you and move beyond it in mind, heart, and action… if there’s a disconnect or dis-ease, there’s reason for it—and you can find the culprit within yourself, however uncomfortable that may be.

Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.❞

★Sunday Forecast

Scorpio Gibbous Moon
—June 20

Back into the depths of our own personal darkness we go, both collectively and individually… the only way around it is through.

Working on a relationship and learning more deeply about compromise could have been a recent theme, and today these reverberations sink more thoroughly into the tug of slippery quicksands… it’s best to smooth over edges and apologies earlier in the day, unless you’re truly prepared and capable of delving into the deepest of intimacies and vulnerabilities.

Today’s lunarly associated degrees involve emotional motivations toward “confronting other people’s underlying motives; unmasking deceit and half-truths; circling in on a hunch; identifying a key piece of the puzzle; getting the full scoop versus acting too quickly and making a mess of things; critically examining one’s own desires; dodging other people’s agendas and protecting one’s own interests; and learning who one’s real friends are…”

None of which are recommended for the faint of heart.

Somewhat unrelatedly but not, Jupiter is more or less stalled in its station at 2°11′ Pisces, a degree which inspires “sober reflections on the deeper meanings of life and death…” and will begin moving backward toward Aquarius, to ultimately return to the rules and regulations of what an organized ideal requires… absolute boundarilessness is not yet available after all.

And finally, the sun enters Cancer later tonight* and this would represent, despite Mars moving in Leo, a more cautious examination upon the inner workings of all things.

Again… none of today’s energies are recommended for the egoic reactionary, but the open-hearted are advised to remain open to receive.

I meant to write about death, only life came breaking in as usual.❞

★Saturday Forecast

Libra Gibbous Moon
—June 19

Today’s celestial traffic continues to set the scene with potential misunderstandings, missed alignments, and/or misunderstood intentions…

Perhaps the lines of cross-purposing are becoming crossed in and of itself?

Today offers a(n) (im)balanced mixture of “finding common ground between living things and appeals for kindness and compassion; cooperative efforts and emotional inclusiveness; getting people to open up and adapting one’s message to other people’s capacities; and dissolving the barriers between the personal and the collective…”

However, simultaneously, there is an obvious in-obviousness about seeing trees and forests alike—in appreciating the details within the overall picture of things…

Today will somewhat demand of you, however charmingly, the need to “shine a light on a situation; pointing out facts that others are trying to ignore; seeing the way out of one’s current difficulties; promoting a higher level of civilization through an imperturbable high-mindedness; trying to establish ideals of freedom, justice, and truth at the highest level…”

But because today is offering mixed reviews and imbalanced perceptions… please ask yourself: should I still be struggling with my personal ideals—are these ideals of mine realistic?—or are they tragically improbable? 

Or… it’s time to consider if you’ve done your part to fulfill your end of the deal toward your ideal.

Oscar Wilde said that if you know what you want to be, then you inevitably become it… that is your punishment, but if you never know, then you can be anything. There is a truth to that. We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not a thing… an actor, a writer… I am a person who does things… I write, I act… and I never know what I am going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun.

★Friday Forecast

Libra Gibbous Moon
—June 18

Yesterday’s—and arguably, this week’s—insight might be sinking in by now… as “information and understanding is coming to you or through you” today… further, it’s likely that this insight may have been within you all along.

Inner knowledge, or inner truth, is illuminated today: what are you learning, or what could you share that you have actual experience with?

See, your opinion isn’t necessary or worthy now—opinions don’t, and can’t, actually afford the repercussions that are intrinsically linked with expressing them—it’s your actual experience that matters… not your feelings about something, or something someone said, or did, or didn’t do, anything that happens to so lazily trigger you, to something that was expressed on the internet—but actual experiences you’ve lived, and learned from, and are able to genuinely tell.

How can you better inform others through actual experience?

How can you better inspire connection with an/Other through the intersection of action and understanding compassion for the human condition and Life itself?

He knoweth the universe, and himself knoweth not.❞
——Jean de la Fontaine

•●Thursday Forecast★

Virgo 1st Quarter Moon at 27°09′
*8:53pm PDT; 9:53pm MDT; 10:53pm CDT; 11:53pm EDT
—June 17

Oracular omens suggest that today “may be the time to seize power and to push forward with decisions that need to be realized and grounded… to take a stand and direct the course of action.”

Further, “it is most likely by force of will that the best solution will be found, but one must be careful to temper the situation, as strong displays of masculinity could get out of hand very quickly.”

Overreactions are likely. Pressures are rising. Explosive reactions—inevitable. Temperance must be practiced…

Is love guiding your motivations to act? Or fear?

Is your ego running the show, or your soul?

In some way, either collectively or in your individual reality, there is a likelihood of being confronted, or somewhat forced to acknowledge the dark side of something—something you believed to be another way than it actually is.

Today is about the actual details of a thing, a matter.

Handling things in a manner that’s always been used will no longer be effective—this is yet another opportunity to rise… to understand the details within the circumstances differently.

This is an opportunity to go more thoroughly into a matter then you’ve ever prepared yourself toward… this is an opportunity to practice, in action, what you yourself preach through your own living reality.

Though, quite possibly, here’s the trick: underneath all the action necessary now, this action must be reasonable, rational, peaceful, refined, and inclusive—not egoic, reactive, or defensive.

One of the greatest handicaps is to fear a mistake. You have stopped yourself. You have to move freely into the arena, not just to wait for the perfect situation, the perfect moment… If you have to make a mistake, it’s better to make a mistake of action than one of inaction.

★Wednesday Forecast

Virgo Crescent Moon
—June 16

It’s really no wonder that the past continues to be dredged up meticulously and unapologetically—as Jupiter stations for retrograde upon the second degree of Pisces, a degree which associates itself toward the “need to retrieve, sort through, or go over records from the past in some way…”

It might be appropriate to ask yourself if “the situation facing you struck in time without a clear understanding of how to proceed…”

So what now? What adjustments are needed? Where is your participation most valuable?

It might also be worth one’s time to remember that the past has largely been recorded inaccurately, mistranslated—quite literally, maybe—disregarded over and over in accordance to only the elites agenda or overall plan… books and entire libraries have been burned, and truths have been kept secret—our true lineage, seemingly erased and manipulated for the sake of a status quo rationed upon the actual livelihoods of others.

I wouldn’t be surprised, either, should some of these associations be manifesting in the most metaphorical or symbolic of ways rather than so seriously or figuratively.

How are you able to improve upon your own inaccuracies?—and tidy up mistranslations?

In what ways are you able to open yourself to new understanding?

This degree, nevertheless, promises that “new life can be found as long as one is willing to look…”

Further, this degree divulges that “the achievements of life do not necessarily disappear when we move on… things continue to exist.”

There is no cancelling what hits too confrontationally.

When we start raising different inconsistent truths, life may tip into bewilderment and the brain may go haywire. The confrontation between what is, not is, and maybe is, might embed an enduring showdown, harboring an intense apprehension, and bring us sometimes unwittingly to our knees.

★Tuesday Forecast

Leo/Virgo Crescent Moon
—June 15

Continued potentials for heat, hostility, hyper heartbeat, and/or heartache… with an added insult to injury—the human need to understand it all when none of it is even easy to swallow, much less process.

Also frustrating—there could be a need to remain silent, or still, or to slow your movements entirely… be mindful of your words, specifically, as well as any action you take, as these could be used against you later on… or maybe they’ll set you free.

Ever and again, our mind may become befuddled when we have to find out what is heads or tails. Ever and again, bewilderment may strike our brain when we have to interpret the contrasts between the dark and the bright sides of things when we have got to read complex cases and assess the divergences between the iridescent outward appearances and the grisly undercurrents of particulars…
