Weekly Weather June 22, 2015












Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you will help
them become what they are capable of becoming.

– Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Expect the first half of the week to be quite stressed and difficult with unexpected surprises, losses and difficulties.  Use Monday and Tuesday to power through your to-do list and wrap things up with projects, people and places.  Use Wednesday, Thursday and Friday Morning to partner collaboratively with your own projects and work on other people’s projects that move you toward your future. Chiron’s retrograde station combined with Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday are emotional and (perhaps) difficult or profoundly personally expressive as Scorpio Moon processes old, unfinished emotional business with every planet and links up with Saturn at the last degree of Scorpio as her closing aspect. There is a HUGE ending T-square between Saturn, Admetos and Juno marking a final and closing chapter of an important relationship in your life.

The Grand Trine in Fire between Jupiter, Uranus and Pallas Athena invites us to enter fast moving situations knowing you will have a feeling of vulnerability but excitement.

Essentially, you need to feel the fear and do it any way.

On the internet this week, NASA discovered planets and stars give off music and let us hear what it sounds like.  Of course, Music has a frequency.  Frequencies make things vibrate… hmmmm NASA MIGHT, just MIGHT have explained how astrology works.  We vibrate with the sounds of the planets… I love it.  Here’s a video with the sounds.  That whole particle/ wave theory of physics explains astrology.  We are in harmony (or disharmony) with the heavens… AS ABOVE, SO BELOW.

The changes we are working on NOW are what we are going to be living with come the Fall when the mutable t-square of JUPITER, SATURN and NEPTUNE takes over the heavens and shoots energy into the Gemini leg.  This is the action adventure movie trailer for anticipated activity in Fall 2015!

Uranus and Jupiter have a WHOOSH of fire energy when they form a trine on Monday June 22. This week Pallas Athena gets in the fire mix with them to form a Grand Trine in Fire.  Grand Trines allows you to see the approach to take. The big picture is clear!  Jupiter invites you to step forward in the area of life where you shine!!  Get busy!  Uranus urges you to break free of situations that hold you back or tie you down. Time to reach for the heavens.

Saturn and Mars have a fated, very harsh and difficult aspect this week on Tuesday so Monday and Tuesday.  It is a death, ending, psychological release energy (Scorpio type) of quincunx so expect to have folks die unexpectedly or shockingly.  Or to process and release some sort of emotional loss that ties back to December 2014 and mid-May when Mercury formed a Fated Finger of God with Jupiter and Pluto.  The results of the Finger of God from May combine energetically with the Mars and Pluto energy.  Plus Mars is out of bounds so things can spiral very quickly into a bad, bad event.  Be cautious with siblings, communications and all things ruled by Gemini.

Saturn in Scorpio wants you to wrap up unfinished psychological, merger or inheritance matters this summer.  He is going back to 28:17 Scorpio and turns direct on August 2.  He re-enters Sagittarius on September 18.  Dive back into the swamp of unfinished stuff and get it out of the door!  We are wrapping up whatever was unresolved from December 8 to 23, 2014.  There is still some unfinished business which prevents us from moving forward. We have to dig back through those last degrees of Scorpio to clear them out. Take time to deeply dedicate yourself to clearing psychological roadblocks.

Mercury clears his square to Neptune ~ part three. Notice the recurring story from May 9 at 9:30 mutable, May 29 at 9:45 mutable, and June 23 at 9:46 mutable.  Any and all deception(s) are being revealed and noticed.  Pay attention to what you heard or saw on these dates in light of what happens this week.

Into the middle of this week’s crazy energy, Chiron stations to go retrograde on Wednesday at 21:33 Pisces until November 27, 2015.  Chiron entered his shadow, 16:56 Pisces on March 2, 2015. Events that wounded your soul which occurred between the shadow point of March 2 and now are open for revision and want to be handled differently.  Look in your chart for degrees between 16:56 and 21:33 to see what Chiron activated.  Chiron in Pisces, stationing square to Pallas Athena (part of that Grand Trine in Fire) invites us to look at our soul wound in a different way.  Time to see the pattern that WE keep repeating that wounds us over and over AND OVER again.  We can’t stop the wound but we can choose to react differently to it!  And we can choose to bless it!

Finally, Mars (out of bounds until July 18) enters Cancer on Wednesday where he stays until August 8.  Every 2 ½ days, we are going to change our work and emotional focus as Mars shifts our activities according to the Moon’s changes.  MARS OUT OF BOUNDS DOES NOT FOLLOW THE RULES!!  Family matters move front and center and are absolutely CRAZY!  Your Cancer house is CRAZY.  Mars whipping through the Cancer house of your chart, with no constraints from the ego, kicks butt and takes no prisoners.  It also gets TONS of stuff done! Watch out for family drama and fights.

Void Moons in the Week Ahead:  When the Moon is Void, it is wise to avoid making important decisions as they tend to be unrealistic, and subject to false starts, errors or unexpected hassles.  Avoid being concerned with things beyond your spiritual center.  It is time for subjective, spiritual and non-materialistic concerns.  Kick back, let life flow, and center yourself.  Connect into your essential oneness with the Universal Forces.

Moon is in Virgo Monday and Tuesday.

Moon day Monday June 22, 2015  Moon is in Virgo. Moon goes void Square to Mars so today and Tuesday are all about taking actions to get things accomplished and letting go of stuff (that Square clears things out!).  Mars at the last degree of Gemini forms a stressful aspect to Saturn in Scorpio.  Expect unexpected accidents, deaths and endings as the Out Of bounds nature of Mars forms a Scorpio shaped quincunx with Saturn at the last degrees of Scorpio over the next few days.  Dreams are rather potent and full of imagery.  Pallas has an aspect of brilliance to the nodes of fate so take that inspiration and act on it! Jupiter finishes his trine to Uranus at 9:46 am so fire can flare as well as inspiration!  This is the third of three trines (September 25, 2014 and March 3, 2015 were the first two).  The final trine starts the massive expansion of the Jupiter/Uranus cycle that began on January 4, 2011 when Jupiter and Uranus met at 27:02 Pisces.  You began to pursue a new creative, expansive dream then. Now Jupiter and Uranus invite you to implement the next step and take it to a new level. Moon in Virgo wants you to WORK that dream energy and provides inspiration around 6:30 pm EDT.  Go for it!

Mars’s day Tuesday June 23, 2015 Moon is in Virgo.  Moon goes void Square to Mars offering us an opportunity to take off and get things done. Mercury clears his square to Neptune making things crystal clear where before they were a bit murky!  Notice what you see!  Notice what you hear!  Reference back to the previous Mercury Neptune squares (May 9 and May 29).  A larger story underlies the energy.  Mars inconjunct to Saturn sets off a huge energy of release and endings that are singularly unexpected and Scorpionic.  Mars is out of bounds so the story can be a bit over the top and can include financing, money, inheritances, creativity and siblings. It is a fated moment too.  Be gentle with folks today as Mars wants to go for the jugular.  Sun’s quintile to Uranus invites a different approach to creativity… try new things and explore interesting ideas!  You never know where the next great thing comes from!

Wednesday Mercury’s day June 24, 2015  Moon is in Virgo. Moon goes void Square to Mars at 01:13:14 am EDT.  Moon Enters Libra at 01:41:50 am EDT. Moon goes void sextile to Jupiter.  Moon is in Libra and has easy flowing aspects with her productive, innovative and graceful working sextile to Jupiter.  Chiron stations to go retrograde so our emotional wounds can be up and singing in our ear. Notice where you might be feeling like a motherless or fatherless child.  It’s a blues kind of day.  Mars enters Cancer (still out of bounds) until August 8, 2015.  For the next 46 days, when the Moon changes signs, our desires and actions change with her.  As the Moon moves through the houses of our chart, we’ll be called to action in those areas.  Today and Thursday, you’ll find you want to take action around relationships and the Libra area of your chart. Vesta dives into the South Node of releasing so expect lots of liberation energy around your office, home and body as Vesta wants us to set our hearth’s free from what no longer works for us.  Sister energy is very stressed out too as Vesta is often the sister or hearth keeper.  Venus enters into the Grand Trine in Fire with Pallas, Jupiter and Uranus ~ whisper your heart’s desire out loud!  Mars is listening!

Jupiter’s Day Thursday June 25, 2015  Moon is in Libra. Moon goes void sextile to Jupiter 07:23:26 pm EDT.  Moon is void Thursday night and Friday morning. Today is productive and all about partnerships, relationships, writing, connecting, negotiating and getting things done. Health matters culminate in a final manner. Jupiter’s biquintile to Pluto offers us a new approach to matters involving triangles and expansion~ allow yourself to grow and evolve.  You know how to do it!  Go for the yes.  Saturn appreciates the envy involved in the situation before you around mid-day.  If it weren’t for envy, we’d have a very different world.  Use the difficult feelings to push yourself forward, in a positive way, to the next step.  Moon has numerous connections so expect a bustling busy day as she collaborates with women and relationships, argues with power and breaks free of her routines into a very creative place.  Remember Mars in Cancer is into working your Libra house as he rolls through your Cancer house ~ bringing relationships into a new or different form of nurturing (or anger). Healing is possible when you own the anger.  There can be a distinct ending today as you simply DO NOT want to participate.

Venus’ Day Friday June 26, 2015 Moon is void in Libra Friday morning. Moon Enters Scorpio at 01:57:48 pm EDT. Moon goes void joined to Saturn. The next few days, Mars answers to Scorpio Moon so you’ll be particularly intense.  Mars will want to bring Scorpio energy to your Cancer house!  Jupiter aspects the Nodes of Destiny and encourages us to expand our concept of what can happen.  And if it DID happen, how would you feel!  It can also show up as an offer that kind of “scares you”… say yes even if you are nervous.  There is a weird opportunity to nurture someone or something you don’t ordinarily encounter.  Say yes to it!  It helps clarify the energy of the Summer.  This evening is a powerful, sexy and fun one!  Go out!

Saturn’s Day Saturday June 27, 2015 Moon is in Scorpio. Moon goes void joined to Saturn ending and clarifying all matters Scorpio.  Another intense day of energy as Mars in Cancer brings ending energy of Scorpio to your Cancer house.  Lots of potential to transform as Moon trines Neptune and sextiles Pluto forming a minor grand trine, creating fertile earth with flow, transformation and dreams.  Listen to your inner wisdom today as it is profound.  It MIGHT be a bit paranoid but that doesn’t mean you are wrong!  Dreams were full of information so note them upon awakening!  Sun’s square the Nodes of Fate invites you to make a choice.  If you meet someone new today, they can become very important to your future.  If you leave someone (or a relationship) today, it is truly finished, done and over.  Aspects of important personal planets to the Nodes of Destiny invite us to change our life!  Squares are “traffic” so it is hard to tell if someone is arriving or leaving but regardless, the SHIFT in relationship is important!  This afternoon there is a BRILLIANT approach or connection that moves you out into the world in a new way. Say yes even if you are not sure you want to… down the road the purpose will be revealed. Tonight is a great night for deep connections, conversations and idle time.

Sun’s Day Sunday June 28, 2015 Moon is in Scorpio. Moon goes void joined to Saturn at 09:51:26 pm EDT.  Moon Enters Sagittarius at 11:22:17 pm EDT.  Yet another intense day but full of energy that is fun and transformative.  People can be particularly intense.  Saturn’s opposition to Admetos brings word of an ending that needed to happen.  Let it go!  Mercury’s inconjunct to Pluto echoes the Finger of God energy when he stationed on May 18.  Time to move forward with the next stage if negotiations fail or come to a standstill.  It is now or never.  Go forward. Saturn’s square to Juno amplifies and takes action around ending a partnership that used to work for everyone. This is the LAST degree of Leo for Juno and Scorpio for Saturn. It is now or never. Juno’s square to Admetos marks a final moment as Admetos is at 29 Taurus.  That is a powerful t-square designed to transform all it touches!  Admetos opposite Saturn and both square to Juno.  Expect lots of news of divorce, endings, settlements or final moments.  Sun’s square to Vesta encourages us to change our expectations of how we are caretaking ourselves.  We are the only one who can nurture us.   Mercury’s parallel to Admetos delivers a brilliant yet sad eulogy or departure speech.   Know that you are supposed to let things go now. It is time. There is a whole new chapter awaiting you!  Let go! Take that leap of faith! Tears are distinctly possible!


Anne’s Three Radio Shows and Three Recommended Shows Recap:  Listen in to the podcasts via iTunes or by the website links.

Anne’s Weekly Weather: Beginning of the week is tough. Middle of week is easy and flowing. Back end of week is not so much fun as Moon in Scorpio makes both out of bounds Mars and Sun in Cancer honorary Scorpios.  There is a nasty T-square about releasing! Venus reaches her station degree and lays out her plan for your summer over the next few weeks.  We are all redefining love! There IS a grand trine in Fire with Jupiter/Uranus and Pallas Athena which inspires, illuminates and invites.  Accept the invitations offered even if you are not sure you want them!  You have to clear up the situation before moving forward!  Saturn is back in the swamp until mid-Sept.  Watch for the shadow to arise up!  Time to drain the swamp!  And watch out for quicksand!  And alligators and copperheads!
