Starcodes for the week of June 17-23, 2022
Let’s make some plans in these last few days of spring under the nervy and talkative Gemini Sun and Mercury in Gemini. We can take advantage of that buzzing cross-pollinating Gemini energy and sketch in our ideas for the rest of the summer. If we don’t give it a good job, this energy can leave us discontent or nervous.
This is a week to communicate. Make plans, straighten out misunderstandings and handle logistics. We can let our point be known and write our editors and senators. With Mars still in feisty Aries our defenses kick and easily, so mediation can be tricky, but we can witness our truth. We can also hear what’s been hidden as information pours in from Senate hearings and family friends.
Mars conjuncts Chiron this week, bringing our attention to Mars wounding, hurt caused to a person or culture through the bad use of Mars, through violence, guns, misused sexuality, through self-centered willfulness. But we could also see real leadership from though affected. This aspect can also activate the best of Mars, bravery and leadership in action.
Once decisions are made, things move fast with Venus, Mars and Mercury all in the signs they rule, Mars in Aries heading towards a square in Pluto, and Jupiter in Aries. The life force is strong, bringing strong storms and big droughts. With big swings in the stock market. We tend to extremes.
Friday and early Saturday a sociable Aquarius Moon encourages us to engage the community. Perfect time for an early solstice circle. Venus squares Saturn and can make love and relationship a lot of work. Or we can show that we love through a lot of work, work together and lighten each other’s load as a sign of affection. Do the right thing in relationships rather than let it be an outlet of frustration.
The Moon heads into sensitive Pisces Saturday night through Monday. The world catches up to us; instead of feeling sorry for ourselves let’s turn that emotion into unapologetic self-care and respect for other people’s process.
Summer begins on Tuesday at 3:13 AM MDT under a strong Aries Moon. On Wednesday Venus enters Gemini and we may garden less, potentially do less, and talk more. Towards the end of the week we may feel both a lazy streak and a nervous restlessness which can either pull us in opposite directions or balance out and leave us pleasantly active.
Friday, June 17: Love doesn’t flow easily- but let’s not vent our frustrations. We need to do right by one another no matter what mood we’re in as Venus approaches a square to structural Saturn and the Sun trines the Moon and Saturn all in air signs. Bond over teamwork. Build aesthetically, help form and function, work together. Plans may need to change around dinnertime as the Moon squares Uranus, create room for spontaneity.
Moon sextile Jupiter 1:27 AM, Moon square Uranus 7:36PM, Moon sextile Mars 8:36 PM.
Saturday, June 18: It’s a good morning for the farmers’ market or a protest in the streets as that community-oriented Aquarius Moon conjuncts Saturn and Venus squares Saturn. we can express love through working for or with one another, through true helpfulness. Evening grows more tenderhearted as the moon enters Pisces and Venus sextiles Neptune. Give people room to be soft. Share a vision.

Sunday, June 19: It can be easy to drop into some form of victim mindset or feel mortality brush nearby as the Sun quincunx Pluto under a sensitive Pisces Moon. Reel in the depression cascade and stay present. Process feelings and focus on a mystery and work to solve it. Investigate.
Moon square Mercury 2:00 AM, Sun quincunx Pluto 2:04 AM, moon sextile Uranus 10:50 PM.
Monday, June 20: Listen carefully this morning to gossip, the news, all the buzz as Mercury sextile Jupiter. Listen for information on motives. True information comes through, though some of it accidentally. Early afternoon can get sleepy as the moon conjunct Neptune. Dinner time brings the potential for bonding with compassion as the moon sextiles Venus and Pluto- the energy and crankiness pick up later as the moon enters sparky Aries.

Tuesday, June 21: Enjoy this longest day, summer begins at 3:13 AM MDT. Notice a poignant activated moment as Venus trines Pluto and the moon conjuncts Jupiter in Aries and brings our minds to the deepest issues, let compassion open the heart and be kind. Liberate something that has felt stuck. Use this longest day to invoke light depth and growth.
Venus trines Moon Pluto 2:23 AM, Sun enters Cancer 3:13 AM, Moon conjunct Jupiter 9:36 AM, Moon sextiles Mercury 12:34 PM.
Wednesday, June 22: Expect some tension between the planetary demands over the next few days-One element of this astrological energy encourages a nap and the other instills an irritable impulsiveness. Breathe deeply and give those energies something to do. Venus enters Gemini tonight, words dance, the conversation picks up and we may get more nervy but less possessive.
Moon conjunct Mars 12:58 PM, Venus enters Gemini 3:04 PM, Moon sextile Saturn 8:18 PM.
Thursday, June 2: The Moon in grounded Taurus wants us to slow down and settle in, sip a mint julep in the garden, but the sun semi-squares Uranus ads an irritable, nervy restlessness and craves action. These two pulls can balance our or make us anxious- Calm the nerves and don’t let concerns read a story where there isn’t one. Stay self-responsible, make thoughtful and pragmatic progress; transplant plants or apply for a new job.
Moon square Pluto 2:02 AM, Moon enters Taurus 5:57 AM, Moon sextile Sun 10:11 AM, Sun semi-square Uranus 4:40 PM., Venus semi-square Chiron 5:47 PM.
