A Slice of Expectancy – Full moon: 19’ Sagittarius
Your June 10th full moon experience was brought to you courtesy of Jupiter and the sector of your personality that is indulgent, most at ease with expansion, needs little prompting to step into new frontiers. For everyone I spoke with, this full moon felt like a rising-to-brimming-over during the days it was growing to fullness, palpable even if there was no singular culmination/revelation event. Somewhat more unusual, though in the text books, a few experienced their FM moment two or three days later.
For those with notable, even significant happenings, the phrase ‘break though’ fit well. It also means that they have birth chart placements within a few degrees of influential resonance to the Sun in Gemini and/or the moon and Saturn rx in Sagittarius and/or stationing Jupiter in Libra. Yes, the taskmaster, Saturn, was on the scene, but he certainly didn’t steal the show.
Sizzle and Steam
Mars is now half way through the first decan of Cancer and this is Action Fire in Action Water: not always such a great match here on planet Earth. The warrior likes to advance directly and the crab prefers to side-step. But let’s say you have a situation where it’s best to side-step, take the long way ‘round, acquiesce to an Other’s timetable. If so, know that this combo is on tap for all of us.
The shadow side of Mars in Cancer is passive aggressiveness, irritability, stewing in your own juices – creating an atmosphere that makes scoring anything approaching a cuddle quite difficult. We note that Mars will square Jupiter from the 21st of June, oppose Pluto from June 28th (accompanied at this point by Mercury and within days, joined by the Sun. See new moon note below.) and square Uranus from the 14th of July. The lessons we have learned about our finite energy and how to best use it for getting what we want will be put to real-life testing during this span of time – and there is no need for concern if we remember to FLOW with what feels rational (yes, i am joining these two words here; Cancer can actually do this very well. During this time frame, try it!) and not presuppose a need to defend the ego.
The other two personal archetypes – Venus and Mercury – are back at home in Taurus and Gemini. This means that, for all of us, the ways in which we most naturally use our skills in evaluating and relating, in reflection and communicating, are getting a natural lift. Any behavioral changes and project modifications we are trying to implement also get a helpful boost. Need a house/car/art appraisal? Get it now. Planning to polish up the CV and hit the pavement? No time like the present.
At this writing, Mercury is squaring Neptune and that might raise a yellow flag or two. If you are in a position to be duped, you need to hold off but not for long…by the 16th, a hazy perspective is in the rear view mirror. In fact, by the 17th, what we are talking about/promoting/attempting to convert into action meets a response that can’t be charmed or lost in your ‘fine print’ (particularly if you have been doing the duping). There’s an entity or issue that must be satisfied and, as always, it’s not fun but it is definitely in your long-term best interest to have this experience now. Keep this in mind as you consider how to decompress upon arriving back home at day’s end
New Moon : 2 Cancer 47
On the 24th of June, we have a new moon in Cancer – mind/body/spirit all settling in for a spell of hibernation…sort of. The Warrior has been banging around in some of the rooms here already and the Trickster/Chatterbox archetype should fully dissolve. Now we are in the mood for far more discreet, selective and meaning-full encounters. The Cancer/Capricorn axis is all about the inner-outer balance of a lifespan: you can’t perform well out there if you don’t refresh and recharge in personal space. This is a universal LAW. Break it at your own risk.
Destiny trines Taskmaster Saturn: perform your skillset/protect your genius in ways the School of Life has taught you with greater ease at this time. Implementing these upgrades will exponentially increase your output. Ignoring these lessons will get you the same old – same old. Who wants that? Take Courage and Go Forth (after a bubble bath and a nap).
Mars’ square to Neptune is full on at this new moon time and will be until the 30th of June. Action that doesn’t support All-One ethics may be rising…Those with mid-degree Scorpio markers (and those of us aware that this transit is flowing) can find themselves in a situation that enables them to operate a version of metaphor akin to the command post on a stealth submarine ship. Very Cool! But what glides into view in the deep murk… appearing through the thick glass, behold Pluto: your worst enemy or healing release (and often both, in a 1-2-punch style). In these times it is more apparent than ever that the winner in these encounters is often still about ‘might equals right.’

There is always a flip side for the aware amongst us. Let’s say we want to plant a seed that does lift all boats. Let’s say our Warrior is on fire for a Service-oriented cause. Perhaps we want something that would benefit whoever might move into our Tribe or Clan, like the launch of a new, better fitting and more appropriate system or tradition. Let’s say we want to rebirth an important relationship in fresh soil. Maybe it has become clear that Self-care is the root of all evolution. Yes, this would also be a most excellent time for initiating healing, restitution, a healthier lifestyle, a deeper commitment.
The quantum factor between these opposing scenarios is your motivation. Even be it tiny as a mustard seed.
