A Busy Week In the Starry Heavens

“Puzzlement is the beginning of wisdom.” Erich Fromm

“Atoms arrange themselves into complicated structures from stars to snowflakes almost as if the particles were obeying a hidden yearning for organization and order.” Mitchell Waldrop

This week’s planetary activity may indeed lead to a  yearning for organization and order.  Jupiter will turn retrograde Sunday, the Sun will enter the sign of Cancer, also on Sunday, marking the time of the Summer Solstice. Mercury will station direct on Tuesday at 16  degrees of Pisces. Venus will oppose Pluto on Wednesday,  the Moon is full on Capricorn on Thursday. Neptune stations retrograde on Friday. This is a bit like being at a busy intersection with the traffic lights out of service.

On the Solstice the Sun will make a favorable aspect to Jupiter indicating that the time from now through the Fall Equinox is an excellent time to move in a direction of more inner growth and wisdom.

The Mercury retrograde period will end Tuesday but Mercury will continue to make a challenging aspect to Neptune until July 9.  It’s best under this influence to make an extra effort to keep thinking and communications very clear and to double check the details.

Venus will be opposing Pluto this week which can bring up financial concerns or issues having to do with loss or the loss of love. Pluto offers and opportunity for transformation if so.

Neptune will station retrograde Friday at 23 degrees of Pisces.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is.”In a quiet moment a creative individual experiences the flow of inspiration.”
