Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn has aligned with the North Node in Virgo, showing that we took the necessary steps to improve our future prospects over the course of the last few days through the successful management of our affairs – whether that concerned personal matters or business affairs. Another trine from retrograde Pluto-ruled Mars in Scorpio to Chiron in Pisces indicates that this involved reversing our course of action after a review of intentions and the results they yielded from which healing or problem solving might now ensue. However, we have received mixed messages or have even been provoked or dared by others repeatedly, which requires from us to adjust our values, priorities and communication style in a way that not only suits on own best interests, but also our interactions with important others we want to get to cooperate with us. Therefore, at this First Quarter square in the Gemini lunation cycle, we’re challenged to overcome our prejudices and differences in order to be able to get on the same page instead of going back and forth over the same things time and again. This means we have to sort and work out our issues in a reasonable and objective manner without ‘selling ourselves short’. After Mercury’s ingress to Gemini, one of his home signs, tonight, where he will be traversing until June 29, will we be more inclined toward looking at both sides of an issue, addressing or dealing with several things at once, focusing on facts and gathering information as well as adapting our viewpoint and talking things out. Moreover, we will also be more open towards meeting new people or making new connections, while seeking to get around and keep ourselves busy and mobile. Once the Moon has moved to Libra tonight, it’ll be easier for us to feel at peace and just relax, letting all the worries be removed from our mind.


My close surroundings here really portray the current astrological climate well: There’s been such a commotion between cats, squirrels and birds since the early morning hours that I was unable to sleep in. They’re fighting over their territory and they’re very expressive about it. The same is true about the situation I had to deal with at work these last few days. No matter what we communicated, asked or confronted the other party with, it kept going on in the same manner every single day – the test of limits and faith exemplified in the Saturn-Neptune square that emphasizes the difficulties and seemingly insurmountable obstacles thrown in our way, which prevent us from achieving our long-term goals and vision or ideals.

Tarot card of the day is the “9 of Swords”, suggesting that is important to maintain trust and faith instead of letting negative thoughts, worries and concerns are getting the best of us. We need to be patient as better things or opportunities might come along soon. There is no need to put ourselves down or get overwhelmed or anxious. Circumstances are just unfortunate momentarily and the overall situation is rather complex.
