This week is set to bring plenty of astro- action that will culminate in a New Moon. Where possible, finish lingering projects that you’ve been procrastinating on, or, start a to-do list that will help organise and refine your most important goals and intentions. Where possible, stop, rest and reflect before rushing into to anything. After the New Moon is the best time to put your plans into action.
Mercury will make his third and final supportive link to Pluto since mid April. Lingering issues from the recent retrograde can be expected to reveal themselves, especially surrounding themes of money, material security and financial matters in general.
An uncomfortable conversation or confronting an issue you may have been avoiding could go down better than you expect.
Conversations that cleared the air yesterday may lead to insights or previews into the future. Take note of all forms of communication today, be it electronic or spoken, or even the more subtle messages that keep repeating themselves. Mercury is making his third of three recent trines to the fated North Node, the first being April 22 and the second May 8. The information, data or connections you need to help you actualise growth and development will be available.
The feeling of being pulled in several directions, having to choose between a selection of seemingly unworkable options, or simply the inability to make a decision is likely to permeate the majority of the week.
The Sun and Venus together in Gemini will set off a chain reaction between Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune- all in double bodied signs, known as a mutable grand cross.
A hallmark of a mutable grand cross is that of progress and change due to the signs aligning with the end of the seasons. The mutable signs correspond to the in The mutable signs symbolise
Gemini- the end of Spring and the beginning of Summer. The gathering of information we need to enter the new cycle.
Virgo-The end of Summer and the beginning of Autumn. The celebration of the harvest as sewn seeds manifest
Sagittarius – the end of Autumn and the beginning of Winter. The exploration of new horizons, ideas and experiences
Pisces- Then end of Winter and the beginning of Spring. The ending of the cycle and the reunion with the divine.
This cross will activate 4 specific areas of your birth chart and life. Where things are feeling the most extreme or uncertain now are most likely where this 4 planet combination is located.
The planets most closely implicated in this cross are the Sun and Venus in Gemini facing off with Saturn in Sagittarius.
Uncertainty, indecision or disappointment surrounding Venusian themes such as love, fun and pleasure will offer a reality check. What seemed a sure thing may be clouded in doubt or bring about closure. This alignment may also deliver a new sense of personal responsibility, maturity and clear cut boundaries. Endings always produce new beginnings.
One of the main issues with planets that fall in the signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces is that of the constant need for movement and change. Boredom and restlessness can set in if it appears an area of life is moving too slow. The challenge this week is to slow down yet remain flexible and avoid distractions or diversions. Consider all options and if you’re unable to make a choice, then leave things open ended.
As the Moon continues to lose light before she makes her monthly meeting with the Sun, this week isn’t ideal of making major decisions or embarking on new initiatives. Take your time, reflect and process and let go.
The New Moon on Sunday June 5 (12:59pm AEST) will bring back a sparkier lunar vibe in Gemini. With Venus in a super tight conjunction, new beginnings are highlighted in love and your relationship to luxury, pleasure and all the good things life has to offer.
