For the week of June 15th thru the 22nd, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
Whatever you’ve been ruminating about these past few days, will soon be lifted, allowing you the freedom to move forward with greater confidence. The world does seem weighed down by forces that just seem to be so much larger than yourself, and that draining feeling could continue to blur some of the edges with the station of Neptune next week. However, not much can keep an Aries down for long, and when your passions and desires are stirred, there is no one quite so inspired. There is something going on this week that could be associated with ‘fated’ encounters, or a meeting with destiny. Realize that even as some dreams are appearing to dissolve, you may still need to reassess your hopes and wishes over the next few months. In the mean time, channel some of that passionate nature of yours into some sort of creative venture, or put on your dancing shoes, or go for a run. Your inner daemon wants to express herself.
With Uranus traveling in your sign, you will be embarking on a new adventure in the next several years. But for now, this sense of trepidation about impending changes may have you feeling a little unsettled. Kind of like the edges are dissolving around you and from beneath. Rather than gloomily wondering what you should have or could have done, open your heart to the divine possibility that something new is needing to unfold in order to bring you to new levels of growth and self-expression. Of course, with Uranus, there’s no telling when exactly shifts will occur, but when they do, welcome them as you would a breath of fresh air. In the mean time, things could get a little heated as the week wears on. And if you don’t have an outlet for that passion and drive, you could find yourself riddled with resentment. Do pay attention to these emerging desires, but don’t necessarily act on them just yet. Realize that whatever is going on this week has a purpose, and is ultimately for the greater good.
The week may start with a pique of distraction, due to delays, and an over all negative outlook that you just can’t seem to shake. It could be a little gloomy. But be aware, that whatever vestiges are still lingering will soon shake off, and you will not only find your good humor and sense of optimism returning, but with extra perks besides. It could be that you finally finish a project that you can then put on the shelf, or you’ve finally emerged from a certain negative thought loop. Whatever it was, it will soon be time to open your heart and mind to the broader opportunities and possibilities that are unfolding before you. It might have been feeling a bit like you have had to make many sacrifices and adjustments over the past few years. But for now, this week, you are being asked to take a broader view, and be inspired to create goals and pursue activities in your life that will bring greater meaning and a sense of purpose.
If you have been feeling a little cut off from others, that will soon be rectified. Thanks to a transcendent grand trine in the water signs, you will soon find yourself in good company and well wishers. As Neptune stations this week you are being compelled to seek some sort of higher meaning in your life. This could be through some specific study or practice. But it could also come about through simply observing and getting in touch with your own inner truth, in whichever way is most meaningful to you. These are also good days to just go to the beach, be outside in nature, any venue that inspires peace and serenity, especially earlier in the week, when good humor and optimism abounds. This is also a good week to look at the bigger picture, as a larger vision is trying to make itself known to you.
The week starts on a strange note. Not necessarily in a bad way, just unusual, perhaps unexpected, and ultimately intriguing. With Venus, the planet of happiness and desire, currently traveling in your sign, you may be redefining exactly what that might be! Your heart is a little whimsical and curious, but also somewhat unreliable. Therefore enjoy any dalliances, but take these compelling attractions with a grain of salt. After the weekend, things could get a little steamy as desires take a deeper turn and passions are ignited. There could be some attractions, or even infatuations, mixed with a bit of tension. There’s also something of a fated inevitability in the contacts you are making, so you may as well go with it for now. Just don’t do anything in the heat of the moment that you would later regret. Let common sense be your guide. From Wednesday on, a sudden change could bring an exhilarating feeling of freedom and release.
Any feelings of oppression or anxiety will gradually give way to hope and anticipation over the week ahead. This does not mean that all your problems will be instantly solved, there will still be more hard work and problems to solve in the weeks ahead. But for now there is a much more hopeful and inspiring vision that is emerging that brings hope and anticipation for a vision that is trying to unfold. This can and will help to reaffirm trust in others, even those who have recently seemed distant or unfathomable. Therefore this is a good week to make those important connections with others, create a plan for the future, or embark on a journey with good friends. But also take some time for yourself. Slow down the pace, just enough to allow yourself to step back and take a good look at the vista that is opening up before you. Then rejoice.
Something may continue to weigh on you as you begin the week. Perhaps you are missing someone, or feeling nostalgic for what once was. Take that rumination and apply it to something positive and useful. Any lingering despondency does not last, and will give way to larger and grander possibilities by the time the week is out. Therefore look optimistically to the future, and a vision that is trying to make itself known. Dare to take a few chances over the weekend. You just may surprise yourself. Being willing to take a few risks, could help to realign you on to the path that you were meant to travel on, understanding that deeper connections can be made with others by accepting and appreciating their differences, and what you can learn from each other. Things could get a little heated up after the weekend, as Venus and Mars get tangled up in the Nodes of the Moon. This could be an indicator of ‘fated’ encounters. Just don’t do something in the heat of the moment that you might later regret. Realize that whatever may be transpiring this week has a purpose, and is ultimately for the greater good.
As Neptune stations this week it is compelling you to open your heart in some way. This may be to a loved one, a child, someone who stirs your heart strings, but it could also be about opening your heart to your own inner muse. Through this Neptunian window, you can be filled with inspiration for a vision that is trying to unfold, and open you up to a higher purpose. Something that brings greater meaning into your life. But also a sense of optimism, good humor and cheer. Thanks to a Grand Trine in Water, you could receive blessings from a number of quarters. This is a great week to travel, explore new vistas, or embark on a journey. Whether you travel by land, or within your own mind, the grander possibilities are trying to make themselves known. Things could get a little heated up over the week ahead, as desires and passions are being ignited. This could be for a person, or some other sort of passion. Let wisdom be your guide in the choices you are making.
This is an ideal time to visualize in your mind what you would really like your ideal home or living situation to be, and then dare to explore and wee what is feasible for you to do within your reach, in order to make that a closer possibility. It doesn’t necessarily have to do with home, it could have to do with community and relating, and gathering the tribe. It could be about creating a space in your life that brings you a sense of peace and tranquility. Peace just doesn’t happen, you have to be open to it, and you have to make space for it. If you are willing to do so this week, you may be pleasantly surprised. Among other things this is also a good week to mend bridges and bring offerings of peace. Greater wholeness can be achieved when you come to appreciate the differences that others can bring to the table.
Perhaps it’s all the activity of the previous week, or perhaps you’re just exhausted from having to watch what you say and who you are saying it to. Either way, you need to catch up on your sleep and get a bit of a break. It’s not easy carrying all the weight of the world on your shoulders. It can be exhausting. And always being serious could distract you from other things that are going on, perhaps right in your own backyard, or within your own mind. As Neptune stations this week, everyone is being asked to let some spiritual inspiration enter their lives. Even you. This can be as simple as taking that yoga class, or just sitting and being present with yourself. In the moment. Not thinking about tomorrow, or the next thing you need to do. Just being. You might even want to make it something of a regular routine. You’d be surprised by the results.
When you recognize that it’s the differences between the two of you that make things so fascinating, then you can totally go with it. There is something rather fated about all the contacts you are making this week. Even the strange ones. Greater wholeness can be achieved when you can accept the differences in each other, and know that that’s precisely what you are needing right now. Something different this way comes. And as Neptune stations this week it can help to get you more in alignment with your true priorities. What are the things that make your life more meaningful, and how can you make these a closer reality in your life? Whether it’s personal satisfaction, inner fulfillment, or greater financial stability, knowing what you really want and/or need is half the battle. The rest is trying to figure out how to make that happen.
As Neptune is stationing retrograde in your sign this week, this is an excellent time to embrace and develop the positive qualities of Neptune in your life. Seek solace, peace and serenity, in whichever way that works for you. Reacquaint yourself with your own inner truths, and fill your days with meaning and wonder. It may be that you decide to return to a spiritual practice that you had been neglecting, or create an environment that is conducive to wonder, inspiration and cultivating a more meaningful lifestyle. Whatever efforts you make in this direction are only going to grow exponentially, and bring greater rewards in the end. So do not worry if it feels as if you have been too idealistic. A larger vision is trying to make itself known. This is a good week to travel, to go on a journey, to read a really really good book, to go on a hike, or to canoodle with loved ones. Actually it’s a pretty good week for just about anything.
