Overview  

A busy week, as the landscape shifts once again. 

June 26th sees a lucrative trine between Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto Rx in Capricorn. Power and optimism are expanded. There’s significant opportunity to build on improvements or implement solutions. Jupiter gives you more to work with, but the key word is “work.” 

Also on June 26th, Venus in Cancer will make an inconjunct to Saturn Rx, and Mercury in Gemini will make an inconjunct to Mars Rx. Venus/Saturn hi-lights an area of lack, while Mercury/Mars triggers a mismatch between words and actions. On June 27th, Venus will get some breathing room, as her trine to Neptune reveals a workaround or reason to hope. But Mercury’s square to Chiron will continue to make communication/decision-making tricky. Old sensitivities, wounds or fears can be stirred up, and Chiron stationing Rx will enhance one, particular sore spot. Mercury will point the finger at what must be discussed or understood, no matter how uncomfortable. 

Things start to improve on June 29th, as Mercury moves into Cancer and Mars stations direct. Watch for a marked energetic shift - feelings/instincts can be communicated more easily, and scenarios that have been simmering or delayed since April 17th or May 27th, will move forward. 

The week ends on a high note. Venus opposes Pluto Rx and favourably aspects the Nodes, on June 30th. Venus also moves towards a sextile with Jupiter, exact on July 1st. This takes us back to the Jupiter/Pluto trine, and it looks good. Venus opposite Pluto can be intense, as desires are given exaggerated value. This can drive you towards an achievement (getting what you want no matter what) or an ending.

An ending will occur if a relationship, self-esteem or financial goal is out of step with your external environment. This opposition demands that you put what you want into the correct context. How do you relate to others, how do you express your needs and personal power? Venus in Cancer can be particularly needy and demanding when activated by Pluto. But Venus’ aspects to Jupiter and the Nodes says that this is a beneficial aspect. An achievement or ending will orient you in the right direction, as momentum from the past (South Node) ushers you towards the future (North Node). Getting what you want will empower you, and you'll move forward. Losing something (the end of an obsession) will clear the decks, giving you room to move forward.
