Full Strawberry Moon ~
Pluto YOD, Jupiter Bow, Grand Fire Trine!
Tuesday June 2 at 9:19 AM Pacific – 11 Sagittarius 49
During Mercury Retrograde, the Full Moon, Gemini/Sagittarius Strawberry Moon, is called the Festival of Humanity by some. It’s purpose is to share the Word and Teachings far and wide! Gemini gathers information and communication skills know how. Sagittarius seeks purpose, the far vision that makes it meaningful, gives focus.
♦ Mercury is Gemini’s planet! Retrograde reviews, upgrades, opens doors from opposite directions, making choices more whole and productive. On the immediate basis it can seem frustrating as things keep changing moment to moment, not settling. Fixed signs (Taurus/Scorpio, Leo/Aquarius) and orderly signs (Virgo/Capricorn) often don’t find this multitude of adjustments comfortable; they like their routines, but stay with it, the results will prove worthy though many people will opt not to sign important papers yet.
Some of those adjustments were front and center when Sun, moving forward, and Mercury in reverse, crossed on Saturday the 30th at 9:56 AM Pacific, or, they had a meeting of the minds. Though moving apart now, they have left an invisible trail of thoughts still influencing decisions.
Sun is getting excited as he approaches Mars, a super athlete combination! Running, tennis, biking may all be in the wind in short volleys. But, the Moon in Sagittarius would like to get some distance going! They want to SEE what’s out there! Mars is a Leader, first, takes the initiative! Mars is a rights fighter, in this case, the pen being mightier than the sword! Gemini/Sag is the great storyteller of a very entertaining chapter-by-chapter mythy moral tale embellished with believable facts that make it seem real. Personal new beginnings are near and dear to your heart!
The Moon is opposite Mars, so be careful of wounding words and conversations. Moon can be a tad self righteous in Sagittarius, and by nature, Mars only does what Mars thinks in a hot minute! Mars can be quick, and if the Sun is provoked in its ego, together they all may regret what can’t be taken back. Lucky for us, Moon in Sag is more forgiving. If you are hair trigger yourself, maybe lay a bit low, avoid giving or getting the bee sting. If it is needing saying, long overdue, maybe it will clear the air; change will be quick! The Sun/’Mars exact conjunction isn’t until June 14 at 8:56 AM Pacific, the day Saturn returns into Scorpio. The Full Moon may set off a situation that lasts until then and then some.
♦ The Full Moon axis is just leaving Neptune in its own sign Pisces as the point of the T Square to the axis. Neptune/Pisces is famous for sensitivity, Sun, Mars and Gemini/Sag not so much. The challenge has been to have compassion, empathy, yet with logic, not be swept into doing things that aren’t in your heart. It will still be tempting, perhaps, to run right over the shy person or push a confused person to agree with you, maybe in the interests of ‘saving time’ or getting another person on your side. But that kind of compliance usually unravels later, so take a deep breath, honor others best you can.
You yourself may have had a recent battle of confusion within you or with someone who has. You may still have doubts what to do. It goes from mystical pandemonium to whether to turn right or left! Surrender or jump on it. Get the exercise or meditate. Talk or be silent. Almost always, the answer is a bit of both. The whole function of a Full Moon is separation of opposites yet assimilation, in short, balance, equality. Having skills to do both gives you all your options!
♦ Because the Sun conjuncts Mars, the YOD with Pluto and Jupiter becomes important. Mars and Pluto are in a tight 1 minute of space inconjunct! They are close with Jupiter only a degree away, Mars quickly to sextile Jupiter exactly on the 5th at 4:38 PM Pacific. Mars and Pluto are warriors, but Mars in Gemini with words and a smile, and Pluto in Capricorn very differently with your paycheck and the law! Mars can speak fervently in Pluto’s behalf or devastate Pluto’s reputation. Pluto can fund Mars’ intentions or take it all away. Pluto in Cap has staying power, but Mars bounces back in air sign Gemini. Better to be respectful allies or just leave it alone if things aren’t working, put your energy elsewhere.
Mars sextile Jupiter in Leo is just plain fun and a wins the race! Both are leaders, Jupiter is confident. Mars in Gemini likes new and clever, while Jupiter in Leo goes for center stage and succeeds! you could be swept along with them, taken in or on a trip of a lifetime! Learning is fast and the risk quite tempting! Pluto in Cap may save you from yourself!
Jupiter inconjunct Pluto may light the fires of Hell as it recently has – Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano, Mexico’s Colima Volcano, plus Nepal’s quake! It can be the glamour story of the century, or fizzle so sadly. Jupiter may be crushed by Pluto in Cap’s skepticism, or vindicated by their recognition of the possibilities! Pluto may be annoyed by Jupiter’s endless stories, yet somehow fascinated at the insane potential and secretly astounded by the actual lucky results. Makes them a believer. Truth and consequences for better and worse.
In addition, Mars and Jupiter are both in exciting aspects to Uranus, the planet of universal change and genius! Uranus is in Mars’ sign Aries, split second fast! Jupiter enhances them both giving super lucky decisions! Mega communications, performances of magnitude. Publish, go public, have a grand opening even though Mercury is retrograde! Many successful world famous businesses have it Rx in their charts. Take the seminar; travel with friends. Get pregnant! Fame and Fortune! Mars will make the sextile with Uranus exactly on the 9th at 0:29 AM Pacific. That means the 8th is the action day unless you work at night. Puts a song in your heart! More on Jupiter super trine Uranus!

♦ The Jupiter Bow pattern with the Full Moon axis is the whipped cream for the strawberries! The Gemini Sun, as well as Mars, is sextile Jupiter. Sun is the Light, Jupiter theWayshower. Both like to share and teach, strut and play. It’s lucky to be who you are! And Jupiter is Sag’s planet, the sign the Moon is in. It’s a traveling party – on the boat, by train, a caravan. Or it’s a race you will never forget! Moon in Sag ishappy go lucky, knows where to go and when. Bring the whole family! Let go the doubts; go for the good.
♦ By a Horary astrology term, Translation of Light, there is a Grand FIRE Trine too! This combination is not nearly in as close in degrees as the Bow, but still a blessing, blessings to come as the planets unfurl like a flower into exact connection with each other! Fire is Spirit personified! Uranus is in first Sign, first Fire sign Aries of Initiation; Jupiter is in Leo, fire sign of the Heart and Love; the Full Moon in Sagittarius is in the sign of the Seer, the great Prophets, the Path. The delight of a new Path with new friends in a new community may fill your Soul.
New Moon ~
Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter Super Trine!
Tuesday June 16 at 7:05 AM Pacific – 25 Gemini 07
Johnny is a June 9, 1963 Gemini and has Mercury conjunct Venus. No surprise he is often quoted and this is one of his quotes. See his Chart!
Sun and Moon join, Sun infusing Moon with energy, Light, Moon relaying it on to Earth and us. At one degree opposite the Galactic Center, 26 Sagittarius, the messages will be profound! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Gemini is considered the sign of the Word of Spirit, the Breath of Life. Sun is all powerful, Moon has her way, sometimes gentling Sun, giving a feminine blend. Things culminate and are celebrated as the cycle ends, a new one begins. At a tipping point, we are deep in shadow, but invested with potential, seeds of renewal, an innocent child quality. This late degree New Moon forms the last aspect while the Moon is in Gemini, leaving us in a Void of Course period, unfettered, clear, concentrated, centered. Take some moments to rest, steep in the brew. Be thankful for your breath. Prepare to speak from your Heart.
♦ Speedy Mars figures strongly in the Gemini NEW Moon as it did at the Full Moon! The Sun conjuncted Mars Sunday the 14th at 8:56 AM Pacific, and the Moon is exactly with Mars just an hour before the New Moon at 6:06 AM! Mars is an action planet where Gemini is more the thinker. Mars wants to do more than talk! Mars is a champion of the Word, and a superbly quick writer in Gemini. Talent is in the hands and eye! They are observant and the bringer of News and what’s new. They boldly poke about, leafing through anything and everything, discovery at their fingertips. They gather the data to back up what they say, and lead the way to new thinking, so right for a New Moon! Unasked, they are local adventurers, weaving their intelligence through neighborhoods and families. Independent thinking creates a wave of ideas for sweeping change, yet Mars is off on another tack as soon as a seed has taken hold!
♦ Mercury, Gemini’s planet, squares Neptune in it’s own sign Pisces the third and last time. Until it makes the exact aspect, June 23 at 11:09 AM Pacific, and maybe another three days or so, hold off on important irrevocable decisions or ones you can’t afford to have to change later. Mercury is logical, while Neptune goes by insight, spiritual guidance, empathy. Both are good, but they arrive at conclusions differently. Too compassionate and we may be taken advantage of, suffer sadness. Too logical and we may neglect kindness, cause delay as we think things through. Spiritually we may know what we want, and Mercury helps us get there in the real world by telling others about our dreams so others can know how to help us. Confusion and longing make us crazy, but they are natural stages that keep doors open while we are undecided and keep us going even when we don’t know how! See Mercury Retrograde!
♦ Mercury sextiles Venus in Leo. It will hold this aspect until exact for many days since Mercury is moving slowly after turning Direct June 11. The exact aspect won’t be made until July 5 at 1:19 AM Pacific. So research what you will do, but wait to make a decision until a few days after June 23, after the square with Neptune is over. Otherwise, the sweetest loving communications are intended. Appreciation, affection, gifts are given. Time to make pretty. Great design ideas, color choices, lovely remodeling, getting becoming hairstyles. You might pay a little more, but it’s worth it, makes you feel great! Let the breath flow….
Mercury is closely coming trine with the North Node in Libra! Libra is the next air sign, this one of relationships. How we say what’s up makes all the difference. The North Node is where we are a bit shy, still learning to balance with the opposite sign, in this case independent Aries. We need to know the good ways to be independent within relationships, to be ok with difference, be true to ourselves and let others be true to themselves. Trines usually are successful. At worst they are lazy and take things for granted and nothing happens at all. Sigh. Be conscious and take advantage of your opportunity to offer someone your regard.
♦♦ Jupiter and Uranus are now in the same degree! It is seven-days-close to the final exact super trine with Uranus June 22!!! We have been in it for months. The first was Sep 25, the second March 3. Jupiter enhances, is known for huge growth, expansion, wisdom, seeing the trends of time. Uranus is strange change, enlightened genius, explosions (like volcanoes and lightening), world community, computers and the internet, everything electric, wind turbine energy generators, flight! This is a classic fame & fortune combination. Publishing goes out to the multitudes. Grants and investors can be amazingly generous. Travel is easy and extraordinary at the same time. Research reveals some brilliant cures or incredible information long awaited. Make hay!
The next Full Moon, the Cancer/Capricorn Buck Moon, is July 1, 7:20 PM Pacific, at 9 Capricorn 55.
