Astrological Almanac for Wednesday, June 23, 2021

(All times Eastern) The Sun trines Jupiter in early water signs this morning, offering a nice flow of connecting energy. Jupiter is retrograde now, so it may not be the best time for getting Jupiter stuff accomplished (finances, travel, spiritual pursuits, etc.), but at least the general energetic ambiance of the day should be helped by this trine. Tonight Venus opposes Pluto, in late Cardinal signs. This could bring tension in relationships or artistic endeavors. The tension could be sexual in nature, and/or obsessive. Try to seek out positive outlets for this energy. The Moon opposes Mercury in the middle Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Tuesday, June 22, 2021

(All times Eastern) At 8:55 am today, the Moon enters Sagittarius and immediately squares its ruler, Jupiter, which just went retrograde. So while the mood may boost somewhat, it could be a bit of a confusing morning. At 6:00 pm, Mercury turns direct, though it will take a week or so for it to fully get moving. This evening, Luna flows with Mars, both in fire signs, to give a lift to physical energy and spirit. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Almanac for Monday, June 21, 2021

(All times Eastern) Venus’s trine to Neptune this morning inspires us in art and fantasy, as well as love. It’s a day to overlook the negative in these areas, and also not to make any firm decisions in them, since the escapist element could be strong. The morning has the fading Moon-Saturn square while Luna also opposes Uranus. So if the Venus vibe isn’t affecting you directly, it could be a bit of a challenging morning with the old vs. the new, traditional vs. modern, trusted vs. risky, etc., being the themes of the first part of the day. This Read more…

(All times Eastern) Today is the last day of Northern Spring, as the Sun enters Cancer, marking the Summer Solstice at 11:32 pm. Cancer is a cardinal sign, one of beginnings, and is therefore somewhat chaotic. Gemini has been variable (mutable sign), and after Cancer, Leo, a fixed sign, will be more stable as it occupies the middle of the summer season. But for now, the change to the real heat, and the bright days is upon us, and we have to adjust to that energy. In other longer-term events, Jupiter turns retrograde. He’s retrograde for an average of about Read more…
