Did I forget to mention that Moon moved into Pisces yesterday at 4:45PM ET, after a void so brief that if you blinked, you missed it? Apparently. Moon in Pisces needs to work with intangibles; working with your intuition and going with the flow can be an effective strategy during such times.
It could feel downright soupy over the next two days, as nebulous Neptune, the sign that rules Pisces, makes strong aspects to energetic Mars and life-giving Sun (both exact tomorrow during a day-long void). Watery depths increase with the Sun’s ingress into Cancer at 1:17PM ET, marking the Summer Solstice — the longest day of the year. The first two days around a Solstice or Equinox are especially charged, as these degrees of the zodiac: Zero Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn mark the beginning of a new season. Collectively these degrees are known as the Aries Point, and whenever a planet in your horoscope falls on one of these points, you can be sure it will push for prominence in your life.
Restrictive Saturn in Libra, sign of fairness, balance, judges squares Mercury (mind, communication, travel) in Cancer (women, mom, emotional security) at 2:42PM ET. An apt aspect for yesterday’s Supreme Court decision denying 1.5 million current and former Walmart employees (women) to sue their employer for sex discrimination resulting in inequitable pay and promotion? Saturn-Mercury aspects can be heavy, sometimes downright depressing. On the other hand, the serious focus can be constructive. In the case of the Walmart employees, the loss sustained by each averaged $1100, according to the New York Times. What if 1.5 million women filed a case in small claims court? Putting together a case in court isn’t brain surgery. They wouldn’t need a lawyer to file; they could name corporate officers all the way to the top of the company; and Walmart would have to pay their lawyers to respond to each case. That’s my magical thinking idee du jour, no doubt influenced by the strong influence of nebulous Neptune, leading to indulgent flights of fancy.
Get it off your desk today if you can, in preparation for tomorrow’s day-long void, which starts tonight at 10:51PM ET on a potentially indulgent square between Moon (feelings) and Venus (women, art, beauty, love).
