May 28 – June 3, 2023
This is bound to be a week that takes us through some ringers of tension and emotion, but there is a blazing beacon of glorious joy and fun awaiting us at the end. We just have to muster the strength and determination to humble ourselves before the almighty legions of celestial influences surrounding this bright blue ball spinning spinning free. We must not be afraid to open ourselves up to the emotional experiences that will unfold on Friday. There is so much growth and wisdom sleeping within our souls that can awaken to abundant joy and love.

The experience of facing our conscience that quietly notices the boundaries we should not have crossed could surface in conversation today. While the conversations themselves may not directly involve whatever unethical or amoral paths we might have chosen, they can trigger and alert us to those paths, thus instilling important lessons upon us. Taking these revelations to heart and reassessing the damages or infractions caused by our miscalculations or ill will imposed upon someone can teach us how to be better human beings.
Later in the day, the Virgo Moon helps align us more succinctly with any pragmatic ideals we have been striving for and wanting to implement in ways that help cleanse and refine how we manage our lives. It is an apropos afternoon to notice how well we can enrich our lives with less clutter and more functionality. Look to the sudden grounding glimpses of practicality and clarity that could very well appear out of nowhere.

After an early morning opposition between Moon and Neptune, exposing the stark contrast between our dreamworld and waking existence, we are faced with further integration of the shifts that occurred last week. Depending upon our natal astrology, these shifts may have created massive changes in our lives that require significant integration and adaptation. Today, we might notice how those shifts are affecting our personal and intimate relationships in ways that require tremendous personal strength and commitment to see them through to their flowering stage.
The hard lessons lurking in the shadows of our struggles can impose challenges in our lives we may not have been expecting or wanting, but the long game promises those lessons will bear fruit we never even knew existed or could taste so divine. Today may show us these struggles, so if we can see through them into the lessons we can smile and know our journey is worth taking.

Moon in Libra inconjunct Mercury in Taurus
While there are no major aspects between planets today, this minor aspect could entice us to relish the sweet nectar of beauty and abundance in our lives. While inconjunct aspects can reveal unfamiliar territory, Moon and Mercury in the two signs ruled by Venus encourages a tension that feeds our desires to experience more relatability and understanding of others in our lives. We might find ourselves in conversations that focus on the sustainability of our relationships and their capacity to endure the test of time. This might entail effort on both parties to work harder to understand one another in order to assure that endurance. Maybe we just want to soak up the niceties, but conversations are bound to reveal facets of others that can enhance our lives if we take the time and energy to understand how.

Moon in Libra square Venus in Cancer
This mutual reception (when each planet is in the other’s sign) is fed by yesterday’s episodes of learning more about how others think and process their experiences in life. While we might find ourselves at odds with the emotional stresses inherent in our relationships, there are always lessons hiding in the woodwork. It is important to notice how these stresses affect us and where they come from so that we can get to work on remedying them with healthy boundaries, compassionate acceptance, and empathy.
The sources of sorrow are often rooted in thought processes that went awry somewhere in our past after some form of pain or trauma. Reeling them in to analyze and compassionately understand them better helps alleviate that sorrow. The point is to be there for not just someone else, but also for ourselves.

Moon’s depth of recognition today can show us how vital it is to keep our egos in check. The stubborn protracted claws that grasp desperately to our past identity could lose their hold on whatever beams of pride they are holding onto and plunge us into behaviors that are attributed to humility. One of the beauties of astrology is knowing the potentials that lie ahead, and today we are asked to take a step back and witness who we are through a new lens of exposure and forgiveness.
Today’s coach is none other than a mutably elusive teacher subtly signaling for us to let go and trust in the graces of Earth’s wisdom and bounty. As we journey through our days and months and years, the trials we face help nudge us back onto the tracks where we belong. These alignments help refocus our destination, even if that destination shifts a bit each time we get waylaid. Taking stock of what we have, what we need, and how make it all happen is upon us.
Jupiter’s crossing of Moon’s North Node can impart revelations that point the way towards our destination in life. While anxiety and fear can cripple us into hanging on to who and where we have been, there is a beacon blazing in the distance for us to follow. These are the tense and glorious chords that could very well be chiming through the villages of our hearts and souls today.

Yesterday’s egoic castles made of sand fall in the sea eventually today. Those castles washing away first imparts an intimate clarity of our necessities and resources, including what we may require of others to help us on our path, then to an evening of emotional expansion and contraction that may ebb and flow like tides we have never seen before.
The tension and stress, and shortness of breath associated with both, fall away today into deep luxurious breaths of relief and release, though not without an emotional outpouring of any myriad of feelings. Sadness, joy, grief, love, regret, and gratitude might all swarm around us like the churning swells of the high seas. It would be very helpful to engage in meaningful conversation to help express and relieve any pressure caused by these swelling tides within. And we must always be vigilant for what we discover on our own personal odyssey.
Saturday, June 3, 2023
Our creativity and passionate desire for self-expression abound throughout the day, culminating in a sincerely ripe party of excitement and fun. All the roller coasters we rode in this week’s amusement parks have shaken our bones and whirled our equilibrium into psychedelic clouds of disarray, but today engages our inner fire with a passionate zest to let it all go and delight in the enormity of possibility and potential latent in what lies ahead.
We all have likely felt driven to seek a greater understanding of the more esoteric and philosophical aspects of life. And this has likely come and gone from time to time throughout our lives, sometimes leaving us wondering where we went astray. But this Full Moon in Sagittarius, fueled by a trine to Mars in Leo hours beforehand, promises a new match in our box of tricks to strike and set ablaze that once lost zealousness for knowledge, growth, and wisdom. Letting go of our stresses and worries with faith and determination to glow and shine through the darkness bound to threaten our path ahead will certainly promise abundant joy and fervor for all the days left in our lives.
This week may be an emotional ride, but there is a party at the end for us to lay down our burdens and dance the night away with all our loved ones. What we find along the way is ours for the keeping to ponder and learn from, hopefully proving to be feathers in the hats of our seeking souls. May we don those hats with renewed humility, faith, and excitement for our shared futures together.
