★Wednesday Forecast

Pisces/Aries Disseminating Moon
—June 30

Today presents opportunity to acknowledge, claim, own, and reflect your truth and your ideals…

If you’re failing to ‘walk your talk’ in any way—this could come to your attention now, however abrasively… and depending upon how you respond—or react—this could invite or perpetuate a vulnerability you’ve been ignoring, avoiding, or denying, and could even dramatize or exploit it.

More simply, today could illuminate an inner, or more subconscious, truth that you cling to or allow too much room for, especially if this truth is not true, or is not yours… today offers a way to revive your truths or purify your truths—truths that are struggling.

Further, it would be humbling to reflect or meditate upon who you are and who you’re working to become, and consider all the powers and limitations alike that will naturally come with and through this process of personal evolution.

Is there a version of yourself that you continue to honor?—or fail to honor?

Is there a version of yourself that you are more comfortable with, or less so? How so…

What version of yourself would you want most to share with an/Other consistently and honestly and vulnerably?

Keep your heart open to this version of yourself, whether it’s who you currently reflect, or are living and learning toward, through this week and beyond…

We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.

★Tuesday Forecast

Pisces Disseminating Moon
—June 29

Temperatures—and, potentially, tempers—are truly beginning to rise, especially underneath it all, building to a boil, as malefic Mars moves to apply both an opposition to a retrograded malefic Saturn (exact July 1st at 12°22′) and a square to erratic Uranus (exact July 3rd at 13°55′)…

This week will be memorable, for better or worse.

And an all-absorbing, all-embodying, all-inclusive Piscean moon may be feeling it all along the way…

The opportunity here lies within the inner and personally authentic understanding toward that which is seemingly liberating and that which is seemingly secure, and the (re)aligning of natural balance thereof and thereby.

Ultimately—what are the best, and most constructive, ways for pent up energies to be released?

In what ways is your reality reflecting your ideals? Or not…

In what ways are you participating in the giving and receiving necessary to manifest your ideals into your reality?

The boiling point of water is straightfoward, but the boiling point of societies is mysterious.❞

★Monday Forecast

Pisces Disseminating Moon
—June 28

Faith is restored from within as your new desires connect more appropriately and authentically with your ideals… in fact, there is a good possibility that this good feeling could go to your head entirely—try to maintain your balance and alignment.

Several factors indicate a fair likelihood that any sensation of ease could go further and easily out of realistic proportion… 

To blend and balance… or break through boundaries?

If you’re not experiencing ease—perhaps you’re feeling called to assert your will upon something needing your attention and focus first, before feeling the satisfaction of something completed?

Finding a sense or semblance of balance and alignment within this precious place of pause, or ease, or overall delight would behoove you now.

There is, however, hope for any person who wants to remain an individual—he can assert himself and refuse to conform. He’ll be on his own, that’s true, but while he will not have the security enjoyed by those who do conform, there will be no limits to what he may achieve.❞

★Sunday Forecast

Aquarius Disseminating Moon
—June 27

Continued dismay, disillusionment, or disheartened perspectives could color today’s hours… or simply a loaded weight to be experienced somewhat energetically.

Or… depending upon how you’re embracing recent changes and adaptations, today could offer opportunities for you to feel through your potentials—though, nevertheless, a certain amount of weight remains.

Today, obviously, either way, illuminates a recent trigger point, or ultimate burden—try to breathe through it with an open heart and an open mind.

If you’re dedicated to change, let it cost you something.❞

★Saturday Forecast

Aquarius Disseminating Moon
—June 26

The moon freshly opposes Venus, now in Leo, upon the zero point degree, and then later in the day opposes Mars, illuminating this Venusian chase toward raw motivations and courageous stances…

Basically, essentially, and really quite simply: are you *actually* living your ideals?

Has your ideal changed, or altered itself?

It’s important now to not become disheartened, or disillusioned by what may or may not be real… “consider ways to restore faith; staying true to your own ideals is the aim here… on a personal level there can be periods of feeling worthless, unloved, and falling into depression with feelings of failure and despair—however, there are often wonderful opportunities for self-disclosure here.”

The bolder challenges of today involve owning up to your ideals in more honest ways, adapting to these ideals as you would a new relationship, or toward a new evolution within an established relationship—ideals evolve, too, and this is a really good thing, as it represents growth and maturity.

Today is emergence may feel threatening, or abrasive… but do try to embrace it, as you’ll come to learn that this is where the ideal meets the real in entirely new ways.

Most misunderstandings in the world could be avoided if people would simply take the time to ask, ‘What else could this mean?’

★Friday Forecast

Capricorn Disseminating Moon
—June 25

Continued imbalances could be met with struggle again today, furthering stress or upset, or even more conflicting dis-ease.

It’s important that you focus only on the facts, or the truth of a matter—as it continues to emerge—the rational reasoning rather than the feelings… and it may be helpful to you now to remain reflective and observing, however the emotionality of a circumstance is very likely a potential for distraction.

Remaining open from your heart space, too, would be beneficial, though this could be extremely easier said than done… looking through the heart of things toward the heart of things is really what today is about—and the breaking through of guarded walls to do so.

This breakthrough will be worth the struggle.

There could be some egoically justified fight to cling to something now—a person, an actual thing, or simply an idea, or behavior toward something… try to not appease this irrational need. Rather, try to strategize—manifesting what you want and need…

Clinging is desperate—manifesting is personally accountable authority.

Nobody sees anybody truly but all through the flaws of their own egos. That is the way we all see… Vanity, fear, desire, competition—all such distortions within our own egos—condition our vision of those in relation to us. Add to those distortions to our own egos the corresponding distortions in the egos of others, and you see how cloudy the glass must become through which we look at each other. That’s how it is in all living relationships except when there is that rare case of two people who love intensely enough to burn through all those layers of opacity and see each other’s naked hearts.❞

•●Thursday Forecast★

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.❞
