Mercury will soon complete its retrograde cycle, turning direct June 11. Some of the problems and challenges that have accumulated and impeded our lives may start to resolve toward the end of the week. This is also the last call of the retrograde cycle to re-think, review, re-vision, revise, and reframe. This is a week colored with possibility. Uranus and Jupiter are in a close trine all week—and throughout the month, a fortunate, expansive aspect. The Gemini Sun sextiles Uranus and Jupiter, which adds energy and optimism to an already golden combination.
Sunday the Moon is in progressive, observant, inventive Aquarius, VoC all day, so just do a few routine tasks or just take it easy and enjoy the day.
Monday and Tuesday are days for dreaming, with the Moon in Pisces. Mars sextiles Uranus these two days, giving surprising, creative possibilities. The Sun-Jupiter sextile offers optimism and opportunities. Take advantage of these two exuberant, generous days. The Moon is Void-of-Course Tuesday all afternoon and evening after 11:08 AM Pacific Time. It’s best not to schedule meetings or activities requiring decisions. Just let your imagination soar.
A new lunar month begins Wednesday when the Moon moves into Aries tropically. An early morning lunar trine to Saturn enables us to bounce out of bed early and get some vigorous exercise. This could be a good day to start a more rigorous exercise regime. This is another day that sparkles with possibility. Mercury, the communication planet, is strong in stationary motion just before it turns retrograde the next day, and makes beautiful, opportunistic sextiles to the Moon and Venus. It’s a day for dazzling conversations, but with the Mercury retrograde station there could be confusion.
Thursday is a cosmic whopper of a day! The Aries Moon shines its light on the powerful, revolutionary Uranus-Pluto square, pushing an agenda of change. Mercury is stationary direct, now moving forward. Insights, revisions, and new directions may emerge. Wrap up the day’s work as the Moon goes VoC at 4:43 PM Pacific Time, and enjoy a brilliant evening. The aspects of the day and evening embrace a sure-to-be-joyful CIIS (California Institute of Integral Studies—where I graduated) alumni event celebrating the opening of CIIS’ new art gallery.
Get out your paints or your musical instrument on Friday. Draw on the abundant inspiration of the day and create something beautiful. Neptune, the divine planet of inspiration and imagination is stationary, going retrograde for the next five months. The planet’s symbolism is magnified when it is changing direction.The Taurus Moon emphasizes all things sensual.
Saturday is a powerful, pleasant, and productive day until the Moon goes VoC at 3:06 PM. It couldn’t be a better day for attending the annual San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival, which I intend to do. The day calls for feasting on beauty for the eyes and inspiring music for the ears. Enjoy delicious food, and the special gifts of this day. When the Moon goes VoC, cap the work day and dance the night away.
Sunday is a high-energy day with the Sun and Mars blazing in a hot conjunction. Get moving and befriend discipline. Later in the morning the Moon moves into curious Gemini, lightening the heaviness of Saturn’s retrograde and opposition to the Moon. Usually the Moon in Gemini makes us chatty and social; however, the Moon is in its balsamic phase just before the New Moon on Tuesday, so rather than being in gregarious social scenes, you’ll want to use it more quietly. Make a friendly phone call to someone who matters to you.
The Week in Short:
Sunday: Just simply enjoy the day and relax.
Monday: Open up to surprising, creative possibilities.
Tuesday: Inspiring, generous day. Moon VoC in the afternoon and evening so steer clear of activities calling for decisions.
Wednesday: Start a more rigorous exercise regime. Make it a day of dazzling conversations.
Thursday: Cosmic whopper pushing change! Mercury goes direct. Insights and new directions.
Friday: Create something beautiful. All things sensual highlighted.
Saturday: Powerful, pleasant and productive until the Moon goes VoC at 3:06 PDT. Have a lovely, languorous evening.
Sunday: High energy day. Befriend discipline. Call a sibling or relative.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet and before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. You will more easily get lost or meander if you’re trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.
