Note: Due to a technical problem with Internet service, this post is 18 hours late.


The New Moon on Sunday at 26 deg 43’ in the sign of Gemini is square aspect to Neptune in Pisces. We are on the way to transforming the way we communicate. With Mercury the ruler of Gemini also in this mutable -air sign, sextile aspect to Venus in Leo at the New Moon, we could feel playful, as we search for the desired avenue of expression. We could be creative in this new cycle, as we search for a kernel of truth. Saturn is stationary turning retro on Sunday, less than two hours after the partile New Moon. This is a pivotal week in the annals of history, with the indictments concerning actions of the former president. By the end of August, six planets will have made a retrograde turn, leading deeper into a reassessment and possible reorientation of our relationship to eternity. With a counteroffensive underway, Ukraine gradually reverses the tides of war. The legal process in the US will turn the perception of the nation’s path. The Moon ingress to Gemini on Thursday night US time zones (1:47 UT). The Sun makes the ingress to Cancer at the Summer Solstice on the 21st (14:59 UT).

Markets are stimulated as well as people. Ceres in Virgo is separating from the opposition aspect to Neptune in Pisces, as some attachments dissolve, and some employees migrate to better working conditions.

Saturn’s influence grows as its transit now appears to be in reverse motion, magnified by Jupiter and with some tease from Venus, we prefer to leave behind processes that are destructive or non-operational.

Thursday June 15th — The overnight transit of the Moon in Taurus to the conjunction aspect with Uranus, Uranus posited at 21st degree of Taurus, happens in the afternoon hours for Europe and the Mideast, as a rapid shift takes place in strategic position. There may be revelations that realign the basis of future negotiations in the UK and Israel. The Moon, with a sextile aspect to Neptune and quincunx aspect to Ceres, could indicate a change that undermines proposals for relief programs and finally a trine aspect to Pluto in Capricorn as economic leverage is reformed. The Moon ingress to Gemini for greater mobility.
