Energies and Astrology for week of June 23

This past week the sun entered Cancer which signaled the summer solstice. The energy of this new phase lingers as the sun shines on and illuminates the shadows (or what is going on in the shadows collectively).

On June 23 (today), a T-square is formed between Venus (in Gemini), Jupiter (in Sagittarius), and Neptune (in Pisces). A square aspect involves two planets in conflict with each other and results in energy to trigger us to take action to resolve what ever challenge is at hand. A T-square involves three planets and can represent a more difficult influence or challenge for which we are energized to resolve. This T-square lasts the entire week. It will end on June 29.

So what does this particular aspect involving Venus, Jupiter and Neptune mean?

Venus and Jupiter are the benefic planets -- bringing us love, rewards, accolades and success. The energy will be one of wanting to live "the good life." This week enjoy good food and drink, treat yourself to a massage or facial. Do something that makes you feel like you are living in luxury. Soak your feet and eat your favorite ice cream. BUT don't overdo it, especially if your bank account can't handle a luxe lifestyle. Everything is wonderful in moderation. For couples, this would be a good week to plan a date night. For you singles, gather some friends together for dinner at home or out at your favorite eatery.

The Venus and Neptune part of this T-square is a little more serious. The conflict between these two planets may trigger self-doubt or questions of self-worth. Neptune rules the imagination and perception of truth/illusions. Don't let your fears take over this week. If you have mental health issues like bi-polar or paranoia, please take your meds and see your counselor. The key to getting through this energy is to stay grounded! If you do a review of the recent past year, then focus on the positive things you have experienced or accomplished!

I repeat this T-square lasts the entire week. It will end on June 29.

On June 24, Mercury (in Cancer) squares Uranus (in Taurus). This aspects lasts through June 30th. Mercury rules how we express ourselves and the conflict with Uranus may make our communication opinionated, brusque, and insensitive. It may, in connection with the aspects described above, result in our expression being very emotional and conveying our self-doubt and skepticism onto others. Be mindful and temper what you are thinking and what you are saying (or writing or tweeting)!

I have begun to look ahead at July and plan to write another blog post mid-week to talk about the solar eclipse on July 2 and  Mercury going retrograde on July 7. I have a feeling July is going to be an incredible month!

Have a magical week, take care of yourself and stay grounded.

Astrology for the week of June 10, 2019

Neptune, Mars, and Mercury are all very active this week. Energies of psychic activation, challenging judgmental tendencies, and the fog of confusion or the clarity of creating your own reality are in the mix.

On Monday, June 10, the Sun (which is still stationed in Gemini) is in opposition to Jupiter (retrograde and in Sagittarius). Don't go to excess under Jupiter's influence today. Jupiter likes to expand, increase, blow-up everything it touches that can be both good or bad. Everything in moderation today and with the Sun in Gemini, a very communicative sign, moderate your expressions, opinions, and judgement.

On Thursday and Friday, June 13-14, Mars, (stationed in Cancer)  is making a positive connection with (trines) Neptune (transiting its home sign Pisces). Mars is about action and movement forward. The positive connection with Neptune may mean that psychic and spiritual senses are activated or heightened. Your dreams may be very interesting so be sure to keep a dream journal by your bed.

However at the same time Mars is opposing Saturn (in Capricorn) and Saturn likes to restrict movement forward. Saturn wants to make sure you have learned all your lessons and done all your work. That hard work pays off if you are working on your spiritual gifts, but don't be discouraged if it slows down.

On Saturday and Sunday, June 15-16, Mercury connects with (trines) Neptune; is in opposition to Saturn and Pluto; and is conjunct with Mars!  He is enjoying a very busy weekend.
When one planet trines another, they are working in harmony, so Mercury the communication planet will work harmoniously with the energy of Neptune communicating and expressing the psyche. Mercury and Mars in a conjunction means that they are infusing their individual energies into a more intense and powerful experience. Communication & Action joined together. They could really blow themselves out of proportion, but they won't because the opposition to Saturn and Pluto will have a grounding effect. I would still expect a lot of social energy and the psychic senses to really be activated regardless.

Now if that is not enough, the biggest energy of the week occurs on Sunday, June 16 with Jupiter challenging or in a square aspect to Neptune. This is the second time this year these two planets have squared off and a third time will occur in September. Square aspects mean conflict that results in action to resolve the conflict. Jupiter, the good luck planet, is at home in Sagittarius, but also retrograde. Jupiter rules knowledge, higher learning, honesty, a willingness to try new experiences. Jupiter wants to expand your knowledge and your zest for life. Neptune is the planet of mystery, imagination, and illusion. So get ready for a clash between fact and fiction, reality and fantasy. Be discerning as you proceed through this energy.

May you have an awesome week!

Astrology for the week of June 3-9

We have  great energies to harness this week with the opportunity to set big intentions into motion. Don't hesitate to dream big!!!

To start the week, there is a new Moon in Gemini on June 3. It is a chance for us to set new intentions on the mental level. Gemini rules the mental realm, learning, and communication. The new moon and new start begins in the mind. Every action we take begins with a thought. Powerful new intentions can be made this month, but it all starts with our thoughts.

This is important because the new Moon (in Gemini) is in opposition to Jupiter (transiting Sagittarius) which means the energy is pushing us to review and evaluate our long held beliefs. Are those beliefs still true and for our highest good at this time?

To further complicate matters, the Moon is also square to Neptune (in Pisces). Neptune likes to cloud up the thinking. Aspects that square two heavenly bodies against each other mean that there is a conflict which will force us to take action. If you have doubts about what intention to set, listen to your deep intuitive voice. The positive factor in this aspect is that there is an opportunity to create our own realities. Our imaginations will get a boost from Neptune. Big dreams can be set into motion with this new Moon. 

On June 4, Mercury, the planet that rules Gemini, moves from Gemini into Cancer and stays there until June 26. The mental focus and energy shifts to family and home. Communication may be more emotional under the water sign of Cancer.

On June 8, Venus moves from Taurus into Gemini where she can be extra flirty. As if Gemini's need that boost!  She will be in Gemini until July 3 and this is your opportunity to generate new ideas around money and finance.

Starting on June 9 and going into June 10, the Sun squares Neptune as well bring confusing energy to the collective.

Have an awesome and magical week!

Astrology for the week of May 27 - June 2, 2019

If I was writing your horoscope for this week it would say:

Be careful of what you say in conversation or what you share/retweet in social media this week. Be present in all conversations and actively listen. Sharing incorrect information could go viral in a very bad way. Use your best judgement. There is also great potential to connect with someone on a karmic or soul level. Be social, but not gossipy. 

The reason for the alert in the above "horoscope" is that on May 29,  Mercury, who is now in Gemini squares (opposes) Neptune, Mercury also squares Jupiter, making a T-square in which Jupiter and Neptune have already been and remain in opposition. 

So this means Mercury, the planet of communication is in conflict with Neptune, the planet of mystery and illusion and both are in conflict with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, optimism, and joy. The information you read and hear may be unclear or inaccurate under Neptune's influence, and Mercury wants to communicate accurately and clearly. That is going to be a challenge this week under these energies. In addition be careful what you say as the listener may misunderstand your message. Jupiter's influence on all of this is that he likes to expand whatever he touches and miscommunication and misunderstandings could get out of control.

I realize that no one can get through a day without communicating with family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and clients, whether it is in person, on the phone or online. The best advice I can give is be present in all conversations, actively listen, verify facts before passing them along and don't give into gossip.

At the end of the week (May 31 & June 2), Venus trines (makes a positive connection) to Saturn and Pluto respectively. Venus, who is in her home sign of Taurus, will help ground the energies of the week in reality. Venus rules relationships and money. Under the influence of Saturn the planet of life lessons/Karma, and Pluto, the planet of transformation, an opportunity at the end of the week to manifest a positive (and possibly karmic) financial situation or new relationship may materialize. This could come from a random conversation! 

While it may be tempting to retreat from the world completely because of the Mercury-Neptune-Jupiter energies, don't! Conversations at the end of the week may lead to a relationship or financial opportunity with lasting impact. 

Wishing you a wonderful week of discernment!

Astrology for Week of May 20, 2019

It is a slow week for the cosmos with only a few astrological aspects, but there is good energy to grab and work to your advantage.

On Tuesday, May 21, 2019 both the Sun and Mercury move from the zodiac sign of Taurus and into the sign of Gemini. Mercury is the planetary rule of Gemini and feels right at home in the sign. It will be in its home sign for the next three weeks. 

Gemini is an air sign and rules the mental realm. Gemini's are curious, idea generators, and communicative. They like to explore new places and ideas, make new friends, and are very social. Chatty is definitely a quality. However their moods are changeable and can go up or down with the energy. The symbol of Gemini is the twins.

So with Mercury being in its home for three weeks, it will be a busy time in that house of the zodiac. It will feel like things are moving in all directions. Mercury will give full power to a focus on studying, communication, and decision-making.

Let's not forget the Sun, which will conjunct with Mercury, intensifying each other's power. The light of the Sun will bring clarity to the ability to communicate and make decisions based on clear information. There will be a lighter playful energy to the mental space. This will be a good time for brain-storming as ideas and lots of them may flow.

A positive aspect for 3 weeks.

Wednesday, May 22, 2019
The planet Mars is in Sextile to Uranus. Sextile means both planets are at a 60 degree angle to each other signifying that they are in harmony and stable.  However, both planets are action oriented, which means the opportunity (or pressure) to take action to change something that needs to change about your life, behaviors, or beliefs is doubled. Ultimately it is up to you whether or not you take advantage of this energy.

At the time of this Sextile, Mars is in the sign of Cancer where the water sign is dampening its fire. Uranus is in the sign of Taurus, an earth sign that grounds Uranus's air energy also toning down its power.  Normally a planet of fire and a planet of air would surely create something out of control, but the power of both planets are reigned due to their placements in the zodiac. Their energies won't go to extreme. Another positive factor is that the signs of Cancer and Taurus are very compatible ensuring that change you wish to enact in your life will go relatively smoothly!  Complicated but positive aspect.

Wishing you a week of magic and peace,

Astrology & Reading for the week of May 13, 2019

Take the initiative with the energies this week. You will have the opportunity to take action on your desires and dreams, but it will mean that you need to explore and let go of the obstacle that prevents your deepest desires from manifesting. Often we get in our own way.

Monday, May 13, 2019 The Sun is in a Trine with Pluto, shining a light on what you need to transform and Pluto, the planet of transformation is ready to help the transformation along. It is your opportunity to grab.

Tuesday, May 14, 2019 The energy heats up the passions with a sextile between Venus and Mars. Grab that zest for life. In Greek and Roman mythology, Venus and Mars, as the gods for Love & War, they were in a long-term love relationship. This sextile will influence relationships and money, but it is all good. Mars wants you to take action. It is up to you.

Wednesday, May 15, 2019 Venus & Mars activated again. On this day, Venus moves into Taurus, one of her home signs on the zodiac wheel (the other is Libra). Venus is benefic and loves being home. She is in her full power. Sensuousness abounds, but be careful of over doing it on the food and spending.

Mars moves into Cancer, a water sign. When fire meets water, fire usually doesn't win. So the action planet Mars is tamped down and you'll feel that too. The action that you will need to take is indirect.

Thursday, May 16, 2019 Mercury trines both Pluto and Saturn. Mercury is all about communication and our mental energy. Both Saturn and Pluto are retrograde and this influence will ground Mercury. It is a good time to review past decisions and plans. Do you need to go back and talk with people? Do you need to communicate something that was missed?

Saturday, May 18, 2019 Get ready for the full moon in Scorpio. Scorpio is about the deep desires inside of you and at the full moon you can take advantage of the energy to remove the obstacle that prevents those desires to manifest. The full moon wants you to acknowledge the obstacle and reflect on how to remove it. What is standing in your way? Clear it out.

Wishing you the best week possible.

Card for Sunday, April 21, 2019

The card for today is Action: "I step into my glorious future with determination and power."

After many months of astrological signs that promised us a new start as long as we let go of the old, now is the time for action. The sun moves into Taurus so our actions are more than thoughts, but real steps in determination of reaching our goals. I am also drawn to the flowing river over which this woman stands. A couple of different meanings come to my mind, but it can be that your actions have consequences (both positive and negative) or the other meaning may be that if you are not ready to act on your thoughts and ideas, you still have time because of the ebb and flow of life. Just writing out a To-Do list is an action.

The woman in the card is also pointing her arrow at a specific target. It is thoughtful and with intention.

Sending you Love and Blessings,
Joanie Barnes
