Your Weekly Astrology Forecast for June 3–10, 2018

The Sun continues to shine in Gemini tropically, highlighting communication, community and connection. Gemini is the sign of the zodiac that bridges Spring with Summer. An intense season of eclipses lies ahead, with three eclipses on July 13, July 27 and August 11. These eclipses are engaged with the fiery planets Mars and Uranus. It is likely that a lot of aggression will be activated during this time. If you are making summer plans, consider that the energy is hot, impulsive and feisty. It is best to lie low, not take risks, and keep things simple, especially during the peak of summer through July and into the first two weeks of August.

Expect a Social Start to the Week

We are energized by an early Sunday morning Moon-Mars conjunction. Get out early and exercise vigorously. Try something new. The Sun and Moon are in a benefic trine in friendly air signs. Sunday is a social day for connection and community.

The Aquarius Moon is Void of Course (VoC) for the entire 24 hours of Monday in Pacific Daylight Time. This is not a jump-start Monday, or one for meetings or decision making. Rather, attend to routine, insignificant tasks. Aquarius symbolizes different points of view and different cultures, so choose a book or article to read that presents a different point of view from your usual or take a walk to explore a different neighborhood than where you usually go. Make a donation to one of your favorite social causes.

Passions are stirred on Tuesday, with Venus in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn. The Pisces Moon makes benefic sextiles to Uranus and Saturn. We may be open to new ideas and ground them in action.

Midweek is Action-Packed, Challenging and Dreamy

Wednesday is packed with aspects and action. Some aspects are easy, and others are challenging. The planet Neptune plays a prominent role, as it forms challenging square aspects to the Sun, Moon and Mercury. We may not be able to see the way clearly; relax into the fog. Allow your imagination to soar and create some new ideas. Paint, sing or dance. It would also be a good night to watch an imaginative movie.

Thursday is a dreamy day with the Moon VoC through 2:26pm PDT, and then it bounces into Aries, the fire sign at the beginning of the zodiac. The void period is one for routine tasks such as gardening, reading, walking or cleaning. Mars is conjunct the South Node, a fiery-hot combination. Go easy and disengage from conflict if it presents. Meetings could be productive after 2:26pm PDT, or you could lean into a new project.

A Moon-Saturn square in cardinal, action-oriented signs early Friday morning calls for engaging in productive work. Get some vigorous exercise, and then get going on your projects. Make the most of this high-energy day before the weekend sets in. The Mars-South Node conjunction is still prominent for a few more days, so be mindful of the potential for aggression and arguments, and steer away from trouble.

A Taurus Moon Over the Weekend Highlights All Things Sensual

Saturday errands and shopping should be done before 12:37pm PDT, when the Moon goes VoC. Then you could take a hike, bike ride or attend to routine tasks. Expect something surprising in the late evening hours.

Sunday the Moon is in fixed earth sign Taurus, where it is exalted. All things sensual are highlighted. The Moon trines Saturn in the morning, framing the day for work and productivity. As Taurus symbolizes gardening, plants and food, it’s a good day to plant flowers or vegetables and cook a nourishing meal. You may want to cook several things for the week ahead, and listen to music while you work. A Moon-Mars square pushes us beyond our comfort zone, and a Moon-Jupiter opposition draws us to think big and aim for the stars.

The Week in Short

Sunday: Connect with friends and community.

Monday: Moon VoC all day. Attend to routine tasks and be open to discovering something new.

Tuesday: Passionate day. Enjoy the beauty around you.

Wednesday: Imaginative day. Paint, dance or sing.

Thursday: Dreamy, undefined energy while Moon is VoC until 2:26pm PDT. Then spring into action. Aggressive energy abounds, so stay cool.

Friday: High-energy, productive day, with potential challenges.

Saturday: Do weekend errands and shopping in the morning. Moon VoC from 12:37pm–9:04pm PDT; turn to routine tasks.

Sunday: Practical, productive day.
