Starcodes: June 14-20


Starcodes reading for the week of June 14-20, 2024

Sunlight peaks these next two weeks as the earth hits its maximum tilt, summer is almost upon us in the northern hemisphere. Right now, Venus, Mercury, the Sun, and Jupiter are now buzzy, exploratory, scattered and occasionally anxious Gemini – but a change is coming.

Enjoy that Gemini buzz this weekend; go meet new people and talk things out with old friends under this Gemini lineup and while the Moon is in friendly, socially responsible Libra. Explore the neighborhood and local events. Tend relationships and work things out while people are in a relatively open mood.

Because the energy begins to shift on Monday; we turn inwards, grow more introspective and self- protective as both Mercury and Venus enter Cancer under a moody Scorpio Moon. We could see storms in the new or in the heart. The Sun follows into Cancer on the summer solstice on Thursday. Think of Cancer’s symbol of the crab, a versatile survivor that lives both in the water and on land, can dive deep and crawl up on the rocks; even though it’s sweet and squishy on the inside, it’s well defended with a hard shell and claws on the outside.

This line-up in Cancer brings an emotionally complex, comfort-loving, roots-centered, if occasionally nationalistic vibe. We may want to improve our home and homeland, appreciate or angst about our family. Our hearts can hurt for those that are unhoused or feel unsafe, or growl at those that armor up and snap at us. It’s a good time to ponder what helps us feel safe and secure enough to feel deeply. It is also a time to cook good food, Cancer rules our stomach and makes food a love language. Make grandma’s potato salad, share, and offer a bit of that comfort.

After some tough or intriguing adjustments early in the week, the Moon enters Sagittarius on Wednesday and brings back our resilience and the desire to explore the world around us. People will seem more flexible and curious.

The summer solstice can be magical this Thursday, the longest day, as the Sun squares Neptune then enters Cancer. It can be a challenging day to deal with practicalities or make long-term plans for our relationships, but it can be a beautiful day for ceremony and to honor the cycles of the season. Just let everyone find their own way to acknowledge the moment and watch out for any judgment around the right or wrong way, as that will only bring out our inner crab.

starcodes astrology week of June 14 through 20

Friday, June 14: After a fuzzyheaded or confusing morning, engage busy, buzzy, connected day as Mercury conjuncts the Sun in Gemini. Look for strokes of genius and important long-term announcements as the Libra moon, Jupiter in Gemini, and Pluto in Aquarius all form a grand trine, though we might need to let the dust settle before deciding what’s actually practical. Midday it can be hard to stay on track and we might have to wrestle with some mechanical irritations or pragmatic limitations as Mars semi-squares Saturn. Evening returns us to a more expansive mindset.

Moon trine Uranus 1:50 AM, Moon square Venus 5:13 AM, the sun conjunct Mercury 10:32 AM, Moon opposed Neptune 11:53 AM, Moon enters Libra 12:12 PM, Moon trine Pluto 3:39 PM, Mars semi-squares Saturn 4:10 PM, Moon trine Jupiter 9:43 PM.

Saturday, June 15: A day to drift, putter, visit at the farmers market. We can feel open and sociable, but maybe not organized, our attention can scatter. Engage lots of different conversations, enjoy the connection but don’t expect the conversations to really get anywhere. Let this be a day to catch up with ourselves. The present moment can be beautiful, but the future foggy – make sure the situation is clear before making future plans.

No major aspects today.

Sunday, June 16: Engage creative ideas and dive into the arts supplies as Venus squares Neptune. Dream and imagine, step into spirit, but let’s be humble about practical matters. It can be easy to trip or spill, but hard to see what’s going on in the heart realm and this can complicate relationships; make no assumptions, stay in the present, and just shine from the heart.

Moon trine Sun 5:14 PM, Venus square Neptune 9:46 PM.

Monday, June 17: The winds change, our perspective shifts in the world’s woes can weigh heavily on us; be patient and take new bearings for this next season. The Welsh word Hiraeth speaks of an existential longing for a home we’ve never known, a bittersweet sadness over lost culture or dream for the future, nostalgia for something safe and wonderful that existed only in our imagination. But this longing can help us work towards a safer, more comfortable future for all as Venus and Mercury enter Cancer under a moody Scorpio Moon and as Mercury squares Neptune and quincunx Pluto. Take care one another.

Moon trine Mercury 12:05 AM, Venus enters Cancer 12:20 AM, Moon enters Scorpio 12:37 AM, Moon trines Venus 12:39 AM, Mercury square Neptune 1:40 AM, Mercury enters Cancer 3:06 AM, Moon squares Pluto 3:54 AM, Mercury conjunct Venus 6:42 AM, Moon opposes Mars 1:10 PM, Mercury quincunx Pluto 9:13 PM.

Tuesday, June 18: Our hearts can ache with a certain existential discontent as Venus quincunx Pluto, but it helps to have a proactive rather than passive response. Our mood swings may be because we compare our existence to an ideal, our home to what we’d like, our relationship to something imaginarily perfect, and use that as an excuse to not do the work needed to step in the right direction. What we pay attention to grows, shall it be our discontent or our vision? Practicalities, even a simple neighborhood walk, can help us get more grounded later on as Moon trine Saturn.

Venus quincunx Pluto 8:12 AM, Moon trine Saturn 2:18 PM.

Wednesday, June 19: Morning could bring crabbiness and competence, good for quietly completing projects. Let people have their coffee and watch them come around by midday as the Moon enters more upbeat Sagittarius. Our concentration can go out the window. Afternoon brings a good time to travel, be outside and talk to strangers, garden, or play with the dogs in the evening light. Tonight, we may be tempted to overdo or over speak as the Moon opposes Jupiter, but can hit just the right note to take a minute to think of consequences.

Moon opposed Uranus 1:22 AM, Moon trine Neptune 10:19 AM, Moon enters Sagittarius 10:31 AM, Moon sextiles Pluto 1:32 PM, Moon opposed Jupiter 9:21 PM.

Thursday, June 20: Magic abounds today, practicality does not. This longest can be magical as the Sun squares Neptune then enters Cancer. Imagination and cavorting about in the sunshine, divination, and celebration, it’s a wonderful day. The moment is beautiful, but we can’t see far ahead, Hazel uncertainty as the sun squares Neptune, and watch out for the big people who have too many beers at the cell at the picnic and try to drive home.

Sun square Neptune 12:12 PM, Sun enters Cancer 2:50 PM, Moon trine Saturn 10:07 PM.
