Astrology: Astro-Weather, Week of June 8-14, 2011
By Guy Spiro
Week of June 8-14, 2011
Wednesday, June 8—High energy from yesterday, both positive and cautionary, will remain with us through today. Reread and apply, making good use of the one and dealing carefully with the other. Another major energy today is a longer-range, outer-planet aspect adding positive energy to the ongoing changes in our society and the world at large. Some news may surface involving greater cooperation along philosophical and religious lines. Can’t we all just get along? Minor energies are mixed. Take an expansive approach, and go deep through the predawn. A communicative and disciplined approach will bring the best results from the early through mid-morning. Watch the midday through the afternoon for general irritability, argumentativeness, hard attitudes and erratic, exaggerated emotional reactions, in that order. The later evening into the late night has a period of potential for some very bad moods, so be careful in your dealings with others. Yet another day for some good choices.
Thursday, June 9—Be aware of four major energies today. The first is the more seriously cautionary. Watch for secret and coercive activities up to, and in extreme cases including, violence. A lot is likely to be going on under the surface. Keep an eye on motives—yours, as well as others’. Don’t let minor disputes escalate, and under no circumstance allow yourself to be drawn into altercations with strangers. This is not the strongest form of this energy, but deal carefully with it nonetheless. The second indicates a general shift in relationship and artistic energy toward a more communicative mode. This is Venus entering Gemini in the morning, where it remains until it enters Cancer late on July 3 or early on the Fourth in Eastern time. The third is very good for looking within, coming to greater self-understanding and initiating positive change. The fourth is also cautionary and easily brings problems to relationships, especially where recreational substances are overindulged or the otherwise out-of-it are involved. Watch for spaciness, confusion and misunderstanding. Do be aware that the moon will be void of course from 3:12 this morning until 5:30 this afternoon, when the moon enters Libra. At that point, the energy will lift noticeably, and general moods tend to become more concerned with balance, beauty and fairness.
Friday, June 10—High energy from yesterday, both positive and cautionary, will remain with us through today. Reread and apply, making good use of the one and minimizing the other. The fourth energy, having to do with confusion in relationships, peaks in today’s predawn and will be the strongest of the holdovers, but stay alert for the other cautionary energy as well. Be aware of two more major energies today. The first stimulates a great deal of activity in communication and transportation. This can be positive, but can also easily get out of hand. Watch for some people to get carried away and try to do and say too much. Be careful not to make boasts or promises that can prove difficult or impossible to deliver on. The second is related to yesterday’s relationship energy, but is much more positive. This will be an odd combination. Plan for all kinds of fun in relationship and social situations, but remember the cautions at the same time. Try to take a disciplined approach through the workday. This will be a high-energy social Friday night. Have a great time, but do so wisely.
Saturday, June 11—Late Friday-night social energy will run strongly well into today’s predawn. Good moods should be dominant well into the mid-predawn. Do be aware the moon will be void of course from 3:03 this morning until 7:33 this evening, when it enters Scorpio. At that point, the energy will lift very noticeably, and general moods tend to become more intense and passionate. Try to relax and tend to old business through the void of course, but be prepared for the big boost in energy when it ends. This will be a high-energy social Saturday night, but will not be quite as positive into tomorrow’s predawn, as last night was.
Sunday, June 12—Late Saturday-night social scenes will be highly energized well into today’s predawn. Some minor irritable energies occur through the predawn, however, and good choices will be needed. Be aware of two more major energies today. The first is a repeat, in a stronger form, of the third energy from last Thursday. Look within, come to greater self-understanding and initiate positive changes. The second is more high positive social and relationship energy. Plan for all kinds of fun, stimulating and unusual activities with those close to you. Take a novel approach in an important relationship, something surprising and outside of your normal box. Minor energies are mixed. After the predawn’s little irritations, good moods should run through the rest of the morning and the midday. A period of aggressiveness may follow that, but it will be short-lived, if it’s noticed at all. Take a cooperative approach through the rest of the afternoon. Have fun tonight.
Monday, June 13—A major energy is coming into focus through today that definitely bears watching. It is a repeat of the first energy from last Thursday. Once again, watch for secret and coercive activities up to and in extreme cases including violence. A lot is likely to be going on under the surface. Keep an eye on motives, yours as well as others’. Don’t let minor disputes escalate, and under no circumstances allow yourself to be drawn into altercations with strangers. This, again, is not the strongest form of this energy, but deal carefully with it nonetheless. Most people will not get caught up in the worst of this, but you do not want to be among those who do. Minor energies are of no help, with scattered irritability here and there throughout the day. Also be aware the moon will be void of course from 12:43 this afternoon until 9:38 tonight, when the moon enters Sagittarius. At that point, the energy will lift very noticeably, and general moods tend to become more expansive and open to a range of ideas.
Tuesday, June 14—The high cautionary energy from yesterday remains very much with us through today. Reread and apply the warnings carefully. Be aware of four more major energies today. The first is positive for communication and transportation, as well as the uses of energy and power. Make good use of this. The second is more cautionary. Watch for some people to run into restrictions, limitations and frustrations. With discipline, this can be used to get things done, but foolish acting out if things do not go well can lead to harsher and longer-lasting consequences than normal. The third is more cautionary. Watch for problems in relationships, especially where one party wants to go deeper than the other. A heavy and potentially-coercive sexuality can pop up suddenly and unexpectedly. This is a more potent form of this energy, so be especially careful in any questionable situation, and as always with this energy, protect the vulnerable. You will notice energy levels rising through today as tomorrow’s full moon rolls in. Consider today to be full moon, and remember, it will inflate and exaggerate anything that goes on. Minor energies are mixed. Good moods are there for the choosing, but the choice will have to be made.
