Astrological Almanac for Saturday, June 19, 2021

(All times Eastern) The Moon flows nicely with Mercury this morning, and though the latter is still retrograde, it’s about to turn around and go direct. With both of these in air signs, social contacts may become prominent today, and clear communications may start to feel possible again. Luna faces off with Venus this evening, making the second half of the day more challenging with relationships, as well as with issues of self-esteem, beauty, art, etc. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Almanac for Friday, June 18, 2021

(All times Eastern) The Libra Moon has a bit of a relaxing day, sextiling Mars around mid-day and then trining Saturn overnight into tomorrow. This should give a bit of boost in energy and focus (in that order), especially in social situations. Take advantage of a calmer beginning to the weekend. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Almanac for Thursday, June 17, 2021

(All times Eastern) The Virgo Moon makes a number of aspects today that make logic a bit… weird. She squares Mercury early and opposes Neptune in the late afternoon. These both go toward favoring non-linear, non-rational thinking and communicating. So it’s not the best day to send the important emails or other communications. Later, Luna squares the Sun for the First Quarter, encouraging us to let go a little bit of small things. At 4:53 tomorrow, the Moon enters Libra, where she lightens up a bit for the next few days. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Almanac for Tuesday, June 15, 2021

(All times Eastern) The Moon flows nicely with the Sun today, starting to ease some of the tension that’s been around. At 11:02 pm, the Moon enters discriminating Virgo and immediately opposes Jupiter, potentially pointing us in the direction of being super-critical and overdoing a lot of things. Try to relax and take things in stride. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Context, Week of June 14-21

(All times Eastern) This week has only a couple of events that are not lunar. One is the Sun’s entrance into Cancer late on Sunday, June 20. Look to Sunday’s post for details. The other is Jupiter’s turning retrograde on the same day. Jupiter spends about 4 months per year retrograde, so this isn’t quite as big a deal as one of the inner planets turning retrograde. Still, Jupiter has been in Pisces for about a month, and now moves back toward Aquarius, which he’ll reach by the end of July and remain there for the rest of the year. Read more…
