Profound Lessons at the Full Moon — June 8-15 2022


This week events are building up for the full Moon in Sagittarius on June 14th.  The battle in Ukraine and the battle for gun control in the US are running in parallel. It is in both cases an uphill battle against impossible odds. A grand-trine configuration in earth signs on June 8th implies the easy movement of materials, as a purposeful transfer of goods and munitions is under way. This, of course, applies to all activities, and a personal advantage, if the aspects are good in a personal chart. Care for the earth, harvests and other earth-bound activities, financial transactions are also favored on Wednesday this week. The Moon in Libra is opposition to Jupiter, Mars and Chiron in Aries on Thursday with Venus in a conjunction aspect to Uranus in Taurus is likely to be explosive.  The Moon in a trine aspect to Neptune and square aspect to Saturn on Sunday could trigger abuse of power. Mercury direct in Taurus is trine aspect to Pluto in Capricorn until Monday, when Mercury transits into Gemini. Communication becomes clear, as the powerful entities challenge one another. So as Putin downsized his goals to conquer Ukraine, the US Congress has downsized the prospects of passing into law gun restrictions.
