New Segment! Celestial Oracles
June 2 - 8, 2019
Hello readers, and welcome to Celestial Oracles!
The planets are always moving, and as such, energy flows above us, oceanic, electric, in perpetuity. Connecting with planetary events can deepen our awareness to our own place in the journey of this lifetime, and can help us hold space for ourselves, and as well as each other.
Today’s trine between Venus and Pluto encourages us to find love in the underworld. Venus, goddess of surfaces and senses, harmonizes with the planet of revolution, asking us to dig deep within our hearts and psyches, and find a rooted alignment with truth and purpose. On Monday, the New Moon in Gemini initiates a new narrative for us, as we press forward on our path. Gemini is the sign of playful communication, language, learning, and reminds us of the importance of duality. Release old ways of speaking to yourself, release old hurtful patterns of self-misunderstanding. You are empowered now to write your own fresh, brilliant narrative, one which will bloom over the next six months.
Tuesday’s conjunction between the Moon and Mercury engages our communicative center, and when Mercury enters Cancer, we speak an emotional language. Mercury will be in Cancer through June 26th, reminding us of the power of speaking from the interior of the heart. Wednesday brings us a brave air, as the Moon meets up with Mars. When the Moon trines Neptune later this day, all will be awash in poetry. A powerful day to make headway on your artistic projects, my dears.
By Thursday things are a little more tense, as the Moon opposes Pluto and squares Uranus, shining a spotlight on control issues and encouraging emotional outbursts. Tread carefully, and remember to try to stay as much in the present moment as possible. Friday may be a day of explosive communication, or shocking information may be revealed, as Mercury connects with Uranus, and the gods of language and lightning collide. This is another day to move carefully. If something erupts, remember that you are being shown something important. Uranus is destructive, but moves us toward the future. Energies shift on Saturday when Venus enters Gemini, and we remember how to love on an intellectual level. Venus in Gemini is wide-eyed in love, seeing opportunity everywhere. Use this ingress to challenge your perceptions of comfort, and find something that sparks your heart anew.
