Up and at ’em!
No sleeping in on this Monday; the Moon is fully engaged in Aquarius, a most excellent sign for networking, especially with people you haven’t chatted with in a while (thank you, Mercury retrograde). There’s plenty of planetary drive and innovation to push you through the day, with the only caveat being a challenge to the very stubborn Moon from equally stubborn Saturn at 5:54PM ET. This can manifest as an ambitious reach for some; or a wet blanket for others. Fortunately aspects to the Moon do not last long. Next!
Planetary patterns are lighter this week. Highlights include a pleasant connection between Venus (money, women, art, social expression) and expansive Jupiter on Wednesday, followed by an idealistic hook-up between mental Mercury and the Gemini Sun — that’ll likely be reflected in communication this week. Also of note: on Saturday we’ll have the Summer Solstice — a turning point — as a change in seasons always suggests.
Moon voids are short, few and far between this week. Tuesday’s void at 2:07PM ET lasts for 19 minutest — blink and you’ll miss it. Thursday at 3:06PM ET, Moon will be void for a mere 2 hours and 20 minutes. Not until Saturday evening at 6:24 PM ET do we get a cosmic four and a half hour break.
And now, a little bit of news…
It just wouldn’t be a real Mercury retrograde if we didn’t have at least one transportation strike. In Philadelphia, President Obama has intervened in one; train travelers are not so lucky in France. Meanwhile, a freaky Mercury retrograde mix-up happened when a California jury mistakenly signed a “not guilty” verdict form, which set a burglar free. What’s freaky is that hours later, the burglar was killed. Finally, more “news from underground,” this time a “frozen underworld” beneath Greenland…
