An emotionally wrought storm over immigration policies and the respect for family and the parent-child bond whirls around with the grand–trine in water signs (emotions). The opposition aspect from the Moon to Neptune in Pisces on Tuesday elicits more responses and viewpoints. It is not only a legal situation, but also a moral issue as the outcry increases. The law’s interpretation and application is being used for political power – Mercury in Cancer is in a tight opposition aspect to the midpoint of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. The Moon in Virgo transited the sextile aspect to Mercury as Mercury is approaching the trine aspect to Jupiter. Voices become louder and louder. Neptune turns retrograde on Thursday, bringing empathy inward.
Summary of Major Aspects of the Week
Wednesday June 20th – The Moon is entering (ingress) Libra today as it is in a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to the Sun (quarter-Moon crisis) and an opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) to Chiron (inner healer) in Aries universal wisdom is conflicted. As the Sun ingress to Cancer later in the day, more direct action is considered for treatment of families along the border detention facilities. Separating children brings trauma that is threatening the continuity of parental bonds. Hopefully the children will be reunited with parents soon. The outside force that imprisons them (Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn), forcing them apart, leaves a frightening impression on the young lives. With this T-square formation it is not difficult to arrive at a solution, unless wisdom is exchanged for political leverage (Moon opposed to Chiron). Venus conjunct Rahu (north lunar node) in Leo is in an opposition aspect to Mars in Aquarius. The perception of the border patrols as evil is engrained in the minds of the families seeking protection. The Moon is trine aspect to Mars (air signs) and is inclined to see the balance (Libra) as the aggressive (Mars) view.
Thursday June 21st – As Mercury and Pluto retro are doubly approaching the opposition degree (180 deg) in cardinal signs (Cancer and Capricorn respectively), the Moon in cardinal sign Libra reaches the focal point forming a t-square configuration later in the day. It is significantly a build-up of tension in the power struggle that will reach a breaking point, or a resolution. Venus in an opposition aspect (see June 20th) to Mars reaches its partile point (exact degree) today for optimal point of distress. Official policy is aggressive (Mars in Aquarius) and attracts dissent (Mars in Aquarius) as the dual interests of citizens and citizenship is put to an extreme test. The Sun and Mercury in Cancer are disposed of by the Moon. The Moon is transiting Libra, searching for a balance, yet out of balance before reaching the square aspects to Mercury and Pluto today. A decisive point is reached in the controversy. Neptune turns retrograde in Pisces, as humanitarian concerns are focused inward.
Friday June 22nd – The Moon is in the final decant of Libra today (see above chart). We are either on the defensive or aggressive mode, for the ingress of Scorpio. With Uranus at 1 deg Taurus, the opposition aspect (180 deg, polarizing) to the Moon in Scorpio takes place in the late afternoon (EDT). At the same time, the Sun in Cancer is in a sextile aspect (60 deg, working) to the Sun and a trine aspect (120 deg, easy) to the Moon. Aggressive actions have more effect than complacency. The Moon in Scorpio is more passionate than in Libra, and disposed of by Pluto, so could also produce a correction or reiteration of the existing situation. Mercury opposition aspect to Pluto and Sun in a square aspect to Chiron are aspects pushing for a change in policy. Mercury opposition to Pluto is in full force today, as more critical points are raised.
Saturday June 23rd – The Sun is in a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Chiron while the Moon in Scorpio is in square aspects to Mars in Aquarius and Venus in Leo. While working for a compromise solution, respect for traditions and identities must be preserved. The US has absorbed large numbers of immigrants in the past, and those from our neighbors to the south should also be recognized. Demonstrating a policy of humanitarian concern (Mars in Aquarius– Venus in Leo opposition) would be consistent with tradition. As the Moon conjunction (0 deg, aspect) with Jupiter in Scorpio occurs today, true humanitarian concern is understood while the trine aspect (120 deg, easy) to Neptune retro promotes more empathy.
Sunday June 24th – The Moon in Scorpio is sextile to Pluto early today, then in a trine aspect to Mercury, bringing focus or igniting a deep-seated controversy. Official policy (Pluto in Cap) is questioned for humanitarian concerns (Cancer), perhaps new details are emerging from the hidden actions or officials due to secret alliances (Scorpio). Venus in Leo is in a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Jupiter in Scorpio, exposing secretive (Scorpio) affairs (Venus), or seductive relationships. Pleasurable experiences could be spontaneous or ill-timed. While contacts between Venus and Jupiter are almost always favorable, the aspect is harsh and could upset the anticipated result, or be in some way undesirable. The Moon ingress to Sagittarius helps to find amiable solutions.
Monday June 25th – An optimistic note begins the day, as the Moon transits Jupiter’s sign- Sagittarius. Quincunx aspects (150 deg, complex) to both Uranus in Taurus and the Sun in Cancer could allow for mediation of complex issues. Venus square aspect to Jupiter persists today, as personal chemistry (Venus–Jupiter contact) and the will to reduce conflict could overcome difficult issues of the day. The Moon moves on to a sextile aspect (60 deg, helpful) with Mars in Aquarius, clarifying goals and possible solutions as difficulties are overcome by the will (Mars) to find solutions as the Moon then is in a trine aspect to Venus in Leo.
Tuesday June 26th – The Sun in Cancer is disposited by the Moon in Sag, and in an opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) to Saturn retrograde in Capricorn. There could be a court mandated action with regard to parental rights versus government policy. The implementation of law is questioned by the interpretation of legal issues aimed to reverse government policy. The Moon’s square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Neptune is a concern for the negative effects of migrant detentions. The POTUS is likely to speak out at this time as transiting Mercury is conjunct Trump’s natal Venus in Cancer. A legal challenge is likely.
