Astrological Almanac for Monday, June 17, 2024

(All times Eastern) Mercury enters Cancer early this morning, then conjoins Venus, making the beginning of the week more focused on intuition and emotion than on logic. It’s a good time to contact old friends or make up with someone. See the Weekly Post for more. The Moon’s opposition to Mars for most of the day may counter some of the Mercury-Venus in Cancer, since it is prone to make us combative and feisty. Others appear to be in our way. Remember that they may feel the same about you. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon Weekly Context Post: https://www.lafond.us/?p=15176 17 Jun Read more…

Astrological Context, Week of June 17, 2024

(All times Eastern) Remember that these aspects (aside from entry into new signs) will be in effect a few days before and a few days after the exact dates listed here. So keep this in mind when reading the daily updates this week. Mercury enters Cancer at 5:06am on Monday. They lose some dignity as they leave Gemini, but invite us to combine logic and emotion for a few weeks. Emotional approaches to communication and puzzles dominate now. Also on Monday morning, Mercury conjoins Venus, making the beginning of the week an excellent time to connect with friends and lovers, Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Sunday, June 16, 2024

(All times Eastern) The Venus-Neptune square tonight and the Mercury-Neptune square before dawn Monday have us fuzzy on the truth and reality all day. First with relationships, then with details. See the Weekly Post for more. Otherwise, the day is a pretty good one, with generally good energy. Before dawn Monday, Venus enters Cancer, heightening our emotional awarness around relationships for the next few weeks. At 2:37am Monday, the Moon enters Scorpio, adding to the emotional focus for a couple of days. It’s a good time to go deep with feelings, but be careful not to be possessive or jealous. Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Saturday, June 15, 2024

(All times Eastern) There are no aspects today, lunar or planetary. The Sun-Mercury conjunction is now separating, so technically, Mercury is combust, which is generally a negative. But being in their own sign, it shouldn’t be too bad. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon Weekly Context Post: https://www.lafond.us/blog/todays-astrology/astrological-context-week-of-june-10-2024/

Astrological Almanac for Friday, June 14, 2024

(All times Eastern) Mercury and the Sun conjoin today in Gemini (Mercury’s Sign). It’s an excellent day to take care of all the Mercury things, namely between about 7am and 6pm. See the Weekly Post for details. Early morning is a challenge to relationships of all sorts, and through early afternoon sensitivity may be heightened, and we may be focused more on the emotional than the rational. But it’s not the best time to trust our emotions. At 2:12pm, the Moon enters Libra, and a certain reset occurs. Most things get a little clearer, and we can take advantage of Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Thursday, June 13, 2024

(All times Eastern) The day may have a frustrating feel, and it may seem as if everyone and everything stands in our way. We may feel isolated in trying to fulfill our responsibilities. Communications can also be a challenge, so take care to go slowly and double check everythinh. The first quarter Moon is at 1:18am Friday, again calling for us to adjust and let go of something, while focusing on what’s really important. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon Weekly Context Post: https://www.lafond.us/blog/todays-astrology/astrological-context-week-of-june-10-2024/ 13 Jun 2024 16:18 Mon Opp Sat 19°Vi13′ 19°Pi13′ 13 Jun 2024 23:51 Mon Sqr Mer 22°Vi56′ 22°Ge56′ Read more…

The Conviction of Donald Trump in Transits

For the first time in history, a former US president has been convicted of a felony. Does astrology have anything to say about this? Of course it does. Let’s look at some of the transits occurring at the time. (Note: there is other stuff going on astrologically, but we’ll stick to transits for this post.) If we look at Trump’s natal chart with the current transits around it (i.e., where the planets are now compared to when he was born), we can see a couple of significant contacts. This is Trump’s birth chart (14 June 1946, 10:54am EDT, Queens NY). Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Wednesday, June 12, 2024

(All times Eastern) Early morning is energetic, and overall it’s a better day for physical energy than mental, but be careful not to go overboard, especially later. The Mercury-Saturn square is exact this morning, making Mercury things (communications, sales, study, details, etc.) a challenge. See the Weekly Post for more. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon Weekly Context Post: https://www.lafond.us/blog/todays-astrology/astrological-context-week-of-june-10-2024/ 12 Jun 2024 06:26 Mon Tri Mar 02°Vi24′ 02°Ta24′ 12 Jun 2024 06:47 Mer Sqr Sat 19°Ge10′ 19°Pi10′ 12 Jun 2024 09:49 Mon Sqr Jup 04°Vi05′ 04°Ge05′

Astrological Almanac for Tuesday, June 11, 2024

(All times Eastern) Mars squares Pluto today, which can bring high tension and possible explosive moments. Sexual tensions could also be high. See the Weekly Post for more. The Moon’s square to Uranus can also bring about sudden shifts, changes, and reversals. In all, it’s a shifting day with high energy. At 1:38am Wednesday, Luna enters Virgo, cooling off some of the fire and settling down the chaos. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon Weekly Context Post: https://www.lafond.us/blog/todays-astrology/astrological-context-week-of-june-10-2024/ 11 Jun 2024 07:57 Mon Sxt Sun 21°Le03′ 21°Ge03′ 11 Jun 2024 09:21 Mar Sqr Plu 01°Ta45′ 01°Aq45′ 11 Jun 2024 12:02 Mon Sxt Read more…
