Full Moon in sidereal Taurus/Scorpio
“Female Mallard Preening” painting by Sharon Guenther
A day to celebrate! Jupiter turns direct on June 9, coinciding with a Full Moon. Watch for an acceleration in terms of current global dramas and for positive forward movement in regards to your life path. Summer Solstice is also happening (June 20 at 10:24 pm MST) as this current SolLunar cycle wraps up, marking the sacred turnaround of our life-giving Sun from its northernmost journey. In this time of the longest days in our Northern Hemisphere, give gratitude to chlorophyll and its many life-sustaining gifts by breathing more deeply and eating more green, live foods.
I am highlighting the paintings for my dear friend, Sharon Guenther, for this SolLunar Cycle. You can view and order her captivating artwork and products at Rosehip Design Studio. Read Sharon’s Artist Statement at the end of this post. Thank you, beloved Sharon.
It’s time for my Summer Solstice discounts (take $20 off all sidereal astrological readings) until the end of June. Thanks for considering an update of your chart or a Natal Map first time reading with me. Thank you!
ECLIPSE MINI-READINGS: Please consider my mini-Total Solar Eclipse reading for $44 (a number associated with living your Mastery on Earth) that I am offering from now until the end of August. In this short reading, I will let you know where this historic Great American Total Solar Eclipse is taking place in your personal chart, which helps identify where and how these dynamic energies are encouraging you already, NOW, to step out of one life and into the next exciting phase. Please send me an email if that interests you. Thank you!
NOTE: I post twice a month, on the New Moon (which includes the two weeks of New Moon and First Quarter Moon) and on the Full Moon (which includes the two weeks of Full Moon and Last Quarter Moon). As you work with and within the natural flow of time and supportive cosmic energies of each unique SolLunar Cycle, you will find your life flow with more ease and grace. My interpretations and predictions are based on the true sidereal astronomical alignments.

Here is a brief synopsis of the Full Moon characteristics that hold true to every Full Moon from my from my friend and sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza at Lunar Planner.
“The Full Moon marks the point of coition in the lunar cycle, the climax, the point of excitement, a time of celebration. The day just after the Full Moon is a time for the realization of the theme to emerge, of what the activities of the first half of the lunar cycle, culminating into the enthusiasm of the Full Moon, are really about. Relax and allow this realization to occur. There is no need to force it as it surfaces on its own.”

Jupiter turns direct!: Jupiter is the planetary ruler of higher wisdom, expansive vision, extraordinary energy, optimism and the faith to keep going despite all odds. Jupiter turned retrograde on February 6, so reflect back on that period and recall what new dreams or drives were launched within you. In these past months, you have been reformulating your life plan to incorporate this new wave of creation. With today’s completion of that retrograde period, events will rapidly accelerate in your favor. Lastly, another dimension to Jupiter turning direct that I have personally witnessed over the years is how it leads to life-completions, as a life spirals out of the body and back to spirit. This leads to what the Native Americans call ‘ a good death’. Something to be aware of today.
Full Moon in sidereal Taurus/Scorpio: This Full Moon occurs in astrological signs that deal with the infrastructures (Taurus) of our lives and our deepest emotional urges (Scorpio). Expect realignment, rededication, release with this determined Full Moon. Here in the Tetons, we are quite literally witnessing this event in roads being swept away or undermined by raging flood waters. As the day progresses, the Scorpio Moon aligns with serious Saturn, bringing limitation in some form, a somber mood, or a decisive clarity of heart.
Saturn retrograde returns to Scorpio: Get ready for all things political to come to a head during these summer months, especially surrounding ongoing scandals that began last fall. Things are rapidly heating up for explosive release during the Great American Total Solar Eclipse of 21 August 2017. I’ll be writing more about this historic transit in the coming months in a longer EarthSky Oracle post, so stay tuned for that.

Moon in Sagittarius opposite Mars in Gemini trine Venus in Aries: Keeping in mind that the life-shifting energies of the Full Moon are still very much at work in your life, today’s aspect turns up the heat and activism dial. Moon/Mars alignments spark tempers but also pressure us to take action in some form. The softening energy of Venus in this mix makes you a Love Warrior for all you care about, including standing up for yourSelf.

Moon/Juno/Pluto conjunction in Sagittarius: This monthly alignment brings you closer to the truth of your core relationships, probing deeper into what’s going on, or sensing a need for an impending release. A perfect day, too, for athletic, energetic events with adventurous partners.
Vesta in Cancer quincunx Neptune in Aquarius: This aspect pits the needs of your family with the pulls of your larger community beyond family, or the other way around. It’s about reorganizing your time so all can be accommodated in the overall mix of your relationships. You can also discover how sometimes your friendships reflect family dynamics you are still healing.

Moon in Capricorn trine Mercury in Taurus: This workhorse aspect leads to a productive day, good communications around problem-solving, or building something new or repairing something that’s older.
Mercury in Taurus square Neptune in Aquarius: Mercury relates to how the mind functions on any given day. With Mercury’s challenging but creative square to spacey and imaginative Neptune, you can feel you are losing a grip on your memory, or sense you are being called elsewhere to daydream. It can be a day of misplacing your belongings, too. Attempt to stay grounded on your feet while your head takes flight in the heavens.

Sun in Taurus opposite Saturn retrograde in Scorpio: Today’s aspect might have you revisiting what took shape on the recent transformative Full Moon last Friday. This aspect is decisive, helping you to release the outworn, or more confidently take the leadership of your life by trusting in your own authority. Taking charge of your finances is especially highlighted today with key decisions being made about spending or saving. Being more frugal is the natural tendency when Saturn is at work.

Sun enters sidereal Gemini: The guiding Light of our Sun enters Gemini for the coming month to cavort and play in the realms of ideas, travel, trickster energy, abundant communication especially in regards to social media. It will be a good time to update all materials related to how you are advertising yourself, your skills. It’s also a time to work on integrating the hidden, shadow aspects of yourself, finding a way to face and laugh at your folly and foibles. No hiding with Gemini, sign of journalists who always get their story out in the open.
Moon/Neptune conjunction in Aquarius: This monthly alignment is excellent for sharing creative ideas and calls forth a need to spend time with friends who inspire you to truly follow your dream and be your more forgiving self.
