Starcodes: June 7-13

Starcodes reading for the week of June 7-13, 2024

This week’s astrological weather is exciting, great for exploring new terrain, but with potentially scattered focus and the occasional anxious brainstorm. With the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter all in nervy Mercury-ruled Gemini this week, our minds over-think and our words and nerves can run away with us. Thoughts act like scuttling clouds on a windy day – busy, but not going anywhere in particular – we look at them and wondered whether they herald the storm or just a moment’s shade.

While this lineup will bring some interesting interviews, too much can be said, we might not filter our comments productively. Gemini energy thinks broadly, actively, but not always deeply.

Underneath these summery Gemini breezes and behind some lovely social Geminian picnics over the weekend, we may need to honor some empowering turning point, like a graduation, or need to assess our plans for relevance as Mercury squares Saturn. Then get hints of potentially more urgent or nefarious times as motivating Mars leaves its own volatile sign of Aries and enters stubborn Taurus to form a challenging square with intense Pluto. This square creates a determined engine which could solve problems or create conflicts, depending on how we direct it. But we have to make sure we’re not worrying about something for which we have no evidence. Let’s watch what we say and do and direct that nervy energy towards wonderful possibilities.

Early next week those tense aspects can give us the energy to drive a plan forward or push for decisions ahead of their time. That Mars-Pluto engine gives us a sense that we have to do something, anything, to exert our will on the world. It could also leave us painfully aware of those who are exerting their will in the world around us. Like any combustion engine, it could take us places or it could explode. We can feel pushed to make a decision ahead of its time, or just feel difficult. If we feel uncomfortable and difficult, feel a bad mood twitching around the edges, let’s own it and not take it out on the people around us. We need to direct our drive well and work towards the benefit of all sentient beings.

Tuesday through Thursday, Venus and the Sun form a friendly sextile to the healing asteroid Chiron, and help us remember we’ve got this, we have experience from our past that can help us forward, or we know people that do and would be willing to share. Take any opportunity to share expertise, to be there for one another. Tap into the beauty and wildness of early summer and let nature be the healer.

starcodes astrology week of June 7 through 13

Friday, June 7: A potentially restless night and strange dreams this morning as the Gemini Moon sextile Mars. Our intuition is strong today, but it can be laced with anxieties and need sorting; notice where the mind rolls as Mercury squares Neptune and the Moon enters Cancer. The stars stir up both a busy mind and our sensitive heart; we could be excited by – or worried about – a coming turning point and have trouble seeing around the corner. Tonight, the energy is sweet and heartfelt, though we armor up quickly if it doesn’t feel safe to be sensitive.

Moon sextile Mars 4:21 AM, Moon square Neptune 6:15 AM, Moon enters Cancer 6:40 AM.

Saturday, June 8: We value coziness and safety this morning, but if we feel a wave of crabbiness, let’s take responsibility for our mood rather than blame others. Saturn speaks to us and asks us to assess what to take seriously, what is foundational, to notice who has been there for us and who was not, and what experiences are important versus those which might be delightful but only as a passing butterfly. In the news notice questions of home, homelessness, or concerns about interrupted family life as Venus and the Sun square structural Saturn. We might have a project or argument to complete as Mars leaves Aries and enters determined Taurus tonight; have patience and let it ripen naturally.

Venus squares Saturn 2:25 AM, Moon trine Saturn 5:07 PM, Mars enters Taurus 10:34 PM.

Sunday, June 9: We need to catch up with ourselves, rest and refill the wells; energy and stubbornness return when the Moon enters Leo this afternoon. Although we might’ve recently hit a turning point and now look to the future instead of the past, we could experience some turbulence in the adjustments as the Moon squares Mars and opposes Pluto. Hold steady if there are difficult realities to cope with or opinionated egos to wrangle, step away from any stubborn clash that holds no answers and try again as the mood softens tonight as the Moon sextiles Jupiter.

Moon sextile Uranus 3:26 AM, Sun square Saturn 4:35 AM, Moon trine Neptune 1:05 PM, Moon enters Leo 1:28 PM, Moon square Mars 2:24 PM, Moon opposes Pluto 4:50 PM, Moon sextile Jupiter 8:08 PM.

Monday, June 10: Enjoy a generally sociable day under a friendly Gemini Sun and Leo Moon- but notice undercurrents of intense activity with the potential for conflict if things trip up as Mercury forms an irritating semi-square with Mars and Mars squares Pluto overnight. Melodramatic feelings help us see some real truths underneath but need to be taken with a grain of salt. Question any compulsion to worry, argue, or dig in heels. See if that intensity and willpower can be directed towards wonderfully mutually empowering goals instead.

Moon sextile Mercury 8:34 PM, Mercury semi-square Mars 11:32 PM.

Tuesday, June 11: What do we want to launch today? The engine created as Mars squares Pluto under an expressive Leo Moon cranks up and needs to be poured into a healthy drive. Like any combustion engine without a place to go or things to push, particularly if feeling unappreciated, this aspect gets explosive, so let’s give it a worthy challenge. We may need to express ourselves, just do so with humbleness rather than act like a know it all. We may only know our own experience, but that is valuable and worth sharing.

Venus sextile Chiron 1:12 AM, Moon sextile Sun 5:57 AM, Mars square Pluto 7:21 AM, Moon sextile Venus 10:02 AM, Moon square Uranus 1:16 PM, Moon enters Virgo 11:38 PM.

Wednesday, June 12: Don’t look around for a source to blame for the day’s edginess. With five planets in Mercury-ruled signs, we can be brilliant, but our nerves can wind up and see all the possible problems. Active minds can juggle many details and map out a good plan- if we focus -as mental Mercury squares serious Saturn under a caring, persnickety Virgo Moon. Stay solution focused. In relationships-watch a tendency to focus on things we don’t like about our beloved, and instead catch them doing something right. Share praise; what we appreciate – grows.

Moon trine Mars 4:26 AM, Mercury square Saturn 4:47 AM, Moon square Jupiter 7:49 AM.

Thursday, June 13: We know what to do here, we can remember what is needed, helpful, what grows possibilities, but we have to search within our memories. The Sun and Mercury sextile Chiron and ask us to dive into our experience for what’s needed to improve the situation. And once we have that information, follow through and apply it this afternoon as the Moon opposes Saturn, even if it feels like work. We also need to remember – and actually use – what we know about self-care and follow the advice we would give others to thrive.

Sun sextile Chiron 12:24 AM, Moon opposed Saturn 2:18 PM, Mercury sextile Chiron 8:01 PM, Moon square Mercury 9:51 PM, Moon square Sun 11:18 PM.
