Morning Star: Astrology for the weekend of June 3 to June 4, 2017

Saturday, June 3, 2017

Very early this morning, Venus met Uranus by conjunction (3:32 AM) at just past 27 degrees Aries. The Sabian for this conjunction reads as follows: A crowd applauds a man who shattered a dear illusion. Per Rudhyar's delineation: A new light is shed upon cherished ideas. Fearless constructive and public facing of facts of existence. Adjustment.


Rudhyar specifically mentions this occurs publicly. Perhaps there is an issue that needs clarification or even funds. An unexpected benefactor steps in to aid and clarify. Mainly, Venus conjunct Uranus calls for financial independence, collaborative efforts aimed at meeting a goal of a social agenda and freedom of self-expression within relationships met with acceptance. Of course, Venus/Uranus can have unusual tastes. She can be the brainy lady who forges her way in the fields of science and technology. She can be an inventor or pioneer across any field. Someone who may break ground for others to follow. She is also very independent and can be quite cool in matters of relationship. If a relationship is oppressive or folks feel as if they are not allowed to be themselves in personal interactions, break-ups can surely occur. Yet, the main call is independence, blessings brought to groups with a high-minded social agenda and breakthroughs that lead to more authenticity within an relationship itself. This energy is also good for just breaking out in dance for no reason at all. There is an assured “beat” and it has a rather tribal feel. With Saturn retrograde, you can set the tempo to your own unique rhythm.


This all bodes well as the Moon traverses Libra, a Venus ruled signed. Sometimes, Libra can place too much emphasis on the opinions of others. Venus/Uranus helps us to be less beholden to that and encourages us to lean into loving our own quirks and realizing that we are still singular and independent entities even when in relationship. Plus, Libra can be dependent on the low end. This helps break the shackles of that creating more freedom in that regard.
And, once Venus is free, the Libra Moon dances rather joyfully for most of the day. Our chatty Gemini Sun meets with Jupiter by trine at 12:13 which is a great set up for social gatherings and just good times in general. The Moon sways into this trine at nightfall which sets the night up for dancing, leisure and enjoyment.
This is the day to let your Venus run wild and take your buddies with you. Monopolize on the breezy and free flying feel of the day.

Sunday, June 4, 2017

This morning begins significantly more dreary than yesterday. We begin with the Moon in Libra under pressure from a square to Pluto (8:53 AM). Given the Venus/Uranus conjunction from yesterday and the potential for break-ups, this square can denote someone resorting to emotionally manipulative control efforts to lure folks back into the web. This can also denote power plays and on the lowest possible extreme, abuse within relationships. To use this aspect to its highest, check yourself and deeply inspect the reasons why you feel you have the right to own or manipulate the other person. Assess relationship fears, tendencies toward codependency and why it is you fear being alone. In that instance, the problem is more likely with the person who is jealous, abusive or manipulative more so than with “the other.”

Meanwhile, the Sun waxes into square with Neptune. On the high end this gives us access to a tremendous amount of empathy and creative power. It softens the ego in such a way that we melt in response to the plight of others and may be driven toward humanitarian or charitable efforts. On the lowest end, someone may be veiling their identity or pretending to be something/someone they are not. The high end allows us to take a multi-media approach to artistic ventures, lures us to artistic, musical and even poetic venues. It is great for efforts taken in creative writing given the Sun is in Gemini. Just make sure you are creating fiction for fun not in an effort to fool folks in a subservient way. The tone may be relaxed and even sleepy. Another low end expression is using drugs/alcohol or other means as an escape or presenting yourself falsely with a subservient agenda. That being said, the energy is ripe to fly under the radar and nab some quiet time.
Shortly after the perfection of this square, Mars leaves Gemini and enters Cancer (12:17 PM) . This changes physicality to a degree. We go from acting on information to responding to intuition. Ambitions become more subdued and physical action is aimed at nurturing efforts and supporting both personal growth and the growth of others. This is Diana as the hunter and provider. The stay at home dad. The warrior whose main job is to secure the home front and protect those who are unable to defend themselves. It is not direct but approaches to the side and knows when to skitter away from danger instinctively. On the low end, it can be likened to the result of raging hormones and disagreements on the home front itself.



Following this mornings potential for shadiness, the mood does settle down a bit as night falls. The Moon meets Saturn by sextile which likely means things stabilize a bit. For a moment, at least. Overnight the Moon will oppose Uranus, inconjunct Chiron and oppose Venus before sunrise. There could be some discomfort, anxiety and elusive fears to deal with that come in over night. Sometimes, when you break restrictive chains, the sense of freedom it brings can feel like uncertain weightlessness. This can, at first, feel quite uneasy and uncertain. If you left a bad relationship, you really don't want to backslide here. Instead, keep your self-confidence up and remind yourself that you are now free to make friends/acquaintances that support and love you as you are. If you still feel trapped either romantically or financially, look for solutions in regard to how to change that instead of wringing your hands over it.
Following the opposition with Venus, the Moon is Void until plunging into Scorpio bright and early Monday morning (6:47 AM).
