Astrological Almanac for Wednesday, June 22, 2022

(All times Eastern) Much of the day is likely to be high-energy, with the Moon conjoining Mars in his own sign of Aries this afternoon. It’s a good time to get things done and channel your work. At 8:34pm, Venus enters Gemini, bringing a light-hearted touch to our social and aesthetic lives. See the Weekly Post for more. The evening is a bit more sedate, and is a good time to ground the energy of the day, especially if it felt like a lot. Late night will probably feel intense if you are awake; if asleep, dreams could be interesting. Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Tuesday, June 21, 2022

(All times Eastern) The first half of the day should have an optimistic feel to it, and generally go smoothly. The rest of the day is also pretty nice looking, too, but there may also be a sensation of having come over a crest and sort of coasting now. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon Weekly Context Post: https://www.lafond.us/blog/todays-astrology/astrological-context-week-of-june-20-2022/ 21 Jun 2022 11:36 Mon Cnj Jup 06°Ar33′ 06°Ar33′ 21 Jun 2022 14:34 Mon Sxt Mer 08°Ar09′ 08°Ge09′

Astrological Almanac for Monday, June 20, 2022

(All times Eastern) Early tomorrow, Venus trines Pluto exactly. See the Weekly Post for details. The Moon is super active today and overnight. Most of the daylight hours may feel somewhat hazy, confused, or dreamy. It might be a perfect summer Monday, where details just don’t matter much. The evening flows nicely into some nice relationship time, augmented by the Venus-Pluto trine. Late night has the last quarter Moon at 11:10pm, so don’t get hung up on what needs to flow away, as the Moon is in the last degree of Pisces for this. At 11:37pm, Luna leaps into Aries, Read more…

Astrological Context, Week of June 20, 2022

(All times Eastern) On Tuesday, Venus trines Pluto, triggering a potential release of passions and desires that may have been a long time in coming. It can be a deeply romantic time, but also one where impulses are quite strong, regardless of underlying emotion and commitment. This aspect will be felt for much of the week. On Tuesday at 5:13, the Sun enters Cancer, marking the Summer Solstice in the north. This is the longest day of the year, and though the days start to shorten, the heat will grow for a while, as summer is in full swing. The Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Sunday, June 19, 2022

(All times Eastern) Mercury sextiles Jupiter in the wee hours tomorrow, so today we may feel a nice confluence of the details and the big picture, the specifics and the general. It’s a good day to read and relax, or engage in study or spiritual pursuits. The Moon’s only aspect is just after midnight, as she sextiles Uranus. This may give a gentle push toward expressing our uniqueness, but nothing that will rock the boat. Tomorrow, the Venus-Pluto trine is heating up, though this may feel like a nice release after the Venus-Saturn square. This is the chance to let Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Saturday, June 18, 2022

(All times Eastern) The morning has some potential tension baked into it: the Venus-Saturn square is exact today, and the Moon conjoins Saturn this morning, and by definition, also squares Venus. We may feel the clash between rules, boundaries, obligations, restrictions, etc., on the one hand, and our relationships and aesthetic selves on the other. Both planets are in their own signs, which are fixed ones (Venus in Taurus, Saturn in Aquarius), so the conflict may be quite intense. Saturn has the upper hand here, so the first part of the day might be somewhat strict. Though the Venus-Saturn square Read more…
