In the Stars June 5-12, 2022 . . . shining light on the astrology of the week

Mercury turned direct on Friday, June 3, though it remains in its shadow until June 18, still exhibiting some of the retrograde qualities. Saturn turned retrograde on Saturday, June 4 and will spin backwards until October 22. This will give us pause to reconsider plans and projects.

Jupiter and Mars continue to travel close together in Aries, calling for adventure and expansive new beginnings. Take a leap forward. Mars and Venus are in their ruling signs, Aries and Taurus respectively, giving strength.

The Sun continues to shine in Gemini tropically, leading to the Summer Solstice on June 21. Graduation celebrations, short-distance trips, conversation, and connection call us.

Sunday’s Moon-Saturn opposition keeps us in check and tethered to our responsibilities. A testy Mercury-Moon square follows. Harness this energy to fine-tune plans or to tackle a writing project or pen a message to someone. Plan to take advantage of the efficient energy that is available the next few days by planning the week ahead.

The task-oriented Virgo Moon on Monday helps us tidy up and get organized. We can be creative and innovative in addressing the practical matters at hand.<
