#167 June 19 - 25: The Sun in Cancer

Greetings,


Scott discusses a new class he is teaching this Saturday, called the Basics of Astrology.


Ingrid shares the uncovering of her family dynamics, which is perfect for Cancer season, surrounding her Mom’s broken arm, and her Father’s shortness of breath.


There is certainly a lot happening this week astrologically between the Sun beginning it’s transit through Cancer, Venus entering it’s retrograde shadow in Leo, and the height of a two week alignment between Jupiter and Saturn. Mercury in Gemini and Mars in Leo are also making their share of noise this week.


Put it all together and you are being pushed to reflect upon your values, your inner world, the nature of your heart, and where this all stems from in the origin of your story.


Ask questions of yourself, and of those around you in order to receiver greater insight into who you are, why you are here, and what you want to manifest for your life.


Check out the podcast through the link below...


The Weekly Transit Astrology Podcast

The themes this week are…

1. Origins

2. Values

3. Consciousness

The Sun begins transit in Cancer this week, bringing light, life, and vitality to the Sign that represents the origins of your existence on Earth. Delve into your past, your roots, your childhood, for insight into your present reality.

Taurus is represented every day this week with either Jupiter, Uranus, or the North Node making an appearance each day, and bringing attention to your values.

The tension between your conscious and unconscious minds is strained this week, as Mercury in Gemini, the Sign of the Conscious, and Saturn and Neptune in Pisces, the Sign of the Unconscious each play major roles this week.

Not to mention, Venus slides into its retrograde shadow this week, urging you to open your heart in your relationships.


If you are curious how these, or any other transits are affecting you directly, I encourage you to reach out to me for a reading.


Wishing you all the best through the week, as you ride the planetary waves!



MONDAY, June 19

The Moon in Capricorn Trine the North Node Retrograde in Taurus

Jupiter in Taurus Sextile Saturn Retrograde in Pisces

Jupiter is the god of thunder, lord of justice, planet of luck and expansion, and the Planetary Ruler of Pisces.

Saturn is the god of wealth and time, planet of authority, restriction and mastery.

Symbolized by the Bull, the Fixed Earth sign of Taurus represents all material matters, including art, culture, food, and finance.

Symbolized by the Fish and ruled by Jupiter, the Mutable Water sign of Pisces represents intuition, compassion, dreams and the unconscious.

Together, Jupiter and Saturn form a Sextile, which is harmonious. The alignment is harmonious because it is between two heavenly bodies that connect through two Elements that are different, but complementary, such as Earth and Water. Earth gives Water form while Water nurtures the Earth.

The aspect between Jupiter in Taurus and Saturn in Pisces has been strong since June 14, but it intensifies today. Setting the tone for the week this aspect brings you an opportunity to manifest your dreams into reality.

We will cover this in greater detail in the days ahead.


When: June 14 - 24

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, and Aquarius.

°°°

Venus in Leo Enters its Retrograde Shadow

Venus is lady luck, the goddess of love and beauty, planet of relationships.

Symbolized by the Lion, the Fixed Fire sign of Leo represents bold, confident sovereignty.

Leo rules the Heart, the most important organ in the body. The heart is the first organ that is developed in utero.

The Sun is the center of the solar system, without there is no life on Earth.

The Lion is the King of the Jungle. Its roar can be heard from miles away. It is the creature that most people want to see whether they are going to the zoo or on Safari in Africa.

Typically, Venus spends about three and half to four weeks in a Sign, but since it will be retrograde its stay in Leo will last four months.

This extended stay of Venus in Leo is gearing you to open your heart in your close, personal relationships.

Think about where you want to be in these relationships by early October. Between now and then, think of this as your opportunity to play in your relationships.

Shine bright like a star.

Express yourself dramatically if need be.

Now is the time to play.

Take some time to connect with those you are in relationship with, your lovers, friends, and business partners. Make them aware of the energy at hand, so you can let loose and express your heart fully.

On the flip side, give your partners the space to express themselves boldly.

By creating a safe place for yourself and those you are in a relationship with, you have the opportunity to break down the barriers of your heart, to express, and explore your desires.
