This Week's Intention: Your emotional body may be charged and the waves extra choppy. How do you use this potent inner strength mindfully? Do you channel it consciously and move towards your goals with purpose, or do you let this strength burn you up? Be attentive and notice how you use your power.
A tempestuous full Moon jump starts the week. Be very attentive to your steps. Go slow, pause and listen deep within. Chaotic energies will be high on and around the full Moon, so take this into consideration when making plans, traveling and moving your body. Partly it is because you are less grounded and less attentive- and partly it is due to what is influencing you cosmically. This is an opportunity to go slow and listen to your inner needs very carefully. Whatever is coming to the surface, give it your presence. You are being cracked open right now in new ways, powerful ways- in order for you to bring the light to the parts of you that have been hidden and neglected. It's time to awaken and burst forth! Find your grounding chord and hold on!

Moon in 15th to 1st tithi
Purnima to Pratipad
The June full Moon is on Monday the 20th at 05:02 am Mountain Daylight time. Moon will be transiting Sagittarius and Mula nakshatra at the time of the full Moon. Rahu gives his shadowy gaze to the Moon, as well as the tempestuous pair, Sun and Venus, currently combust in Gemini. The heat and uncertainty will be palpable in the cycle to come, increasing overwhelm and confusion. The necessity for uprooting, creating change and moving into right-relationship with the chaos principle, will be imperative.
Movement, change and momentum will increase through branching out, reaching and extending. Imagine it, then create it. Explore new possibilities, try new resources, ask for support in new ways. Communicate your needs and reach towards that which will increase your nourishment. Many will feel stuck in the chaos and unable to see past the turmoil, undermining your ability to create and manifest. This cycle is an opportunity to work with the chaos, to use it as a resource for deep transformation and change.
It is also Summer Solstice for the Northern Hemisphere today. The light, inner and outer, is at its peak.

As evening arrives, Moon shifts into the second constellation of Sagittarius, PurvaAshada. Let the water flow. Allow the wisdom of Apas, the water goddess, to support the movement and flow of your inner ocean.

Moon in 1st and 2nd tithi
Pratipad to Dvitiya
The majority of the day, Moon moves through the watery, second constellation of Sagittarius, PurvaAshada. Ruling planet Venus will request attention to your life force energy, while the deity Apas will support the flow. Venus, however, is currently in a heated battle with the Sun, combust and burning. Life force energy, Shakti, is fragile. Pushing, forcing or over-doing it, will not serve you. Notice where you are depleting your self, your inner awareness, and going against your divine feminine wisdom. The antidote to the heat is slow, steady and attentive steps that bring you into sacred pause. Listen carefully to your needs and cool down. Listen to all four bodies equally.
Late evening the Sun energy takes over as Moon shifts into UttaraAshada. Sun has just shifted into Ardra nakshatra, moving through Gemini. The forces within are intensifying. The heat is on. Stay out of the fire.
Wednesday, June 22nd
Moon in 3rd tithi
Just after Wednesday begins, Moon moves to Capricorn. Saturn and Mars both give their drishti. As rulers of Capricorn they request an integration between action and inaction, while the emotional body will likely feel the heat and the pressure of this. The Vishva Devas bring their principles of righteousness and inner intelligence with them today. They rule the domain of UttaraAshada nakshatra, enforcing the Laws of Nature and that which aligns with dharma. Going against ones dharma has dire effects on success and one's evolution. Sun rules this constellation as a planetary energetic guide. Currently in battle with creative planet Venus, he is scorching the life force energy within. Purification is high and the heat is turned up!
Late afternoon, Moon shifts into the sacred portal between constellations, known as Abhijit. Also called the 28th nakshatra, this star is a place of sanctuary, a place to land within. Use this time to set intentions, quiet the mind, pause and check the four bodies. Meditate, get embodied, spend time with the Divine Mother in nature. Listen and awaken your receptivity. What do you hear? This gap is open until midnight so plan your action steps accordingly.
Thursday, June 23rd
Moon in 4th tithi
Moon continues to move through Capricorn and enters Sravana as the day begins. Sun and Venus are now in the extreme and often brutal nakshatra, Ardra. The challenges with their battle may intensify in the coming days, heating the emotional body especially. Sravana is ruled by the Moon, so expect your emotion body to need extra attention today. The drishti of Saturn and Mars increase the pressure and fire. Forcing or pushing actions and desires will result in disappointment, frustration and rage. Where can you surrender, pause and make adjustments that create more space between you and your story? How is your personal mythology impacting your choices and agenda right now? Do you have the support you need to weather this storm? Gather resources and guidance.
Late Thursday evening, Moon moves to the Mars ruled nakshatra, Dhanishata. The Vasu Devas collide with your inner light and support your illumination. You may try to force this process, but it won't work. Your ripening is unique and extraordinary. Let go of your time frame and surrender.
Friday, June 24th
Moon in 5th tithi
Moon transits Capricorn and Dhanishta nakshatra, receiving gaze from Mars and Saturn. Pressure and heat effect the emotional body. Strategies, set goals and clarify your intentions- but know when to surrender and find ease. Just before noon, Moon moves to Aquarius, joining the spiritual planet Ketu. Notorious for disconnecting, the emotional body will be extra fragile and sensitive in the coming days. Jupiter and Rahu give their gaze- currently in exact degrees. The dance between human and spiritual needs intensifies. Notice where the lack of clarity is keeping you from making empowered choices. As Moon continues through Dhanishta, the light within intensifies. The Vasu Devas support shining and being seen. Frustrations may arrive for those who are not feeling seen, heard or acknowledged. What do you need? Who and what do you need for greater support?
Late night, Moon moves to Satabisha nakshatra, provoking healing and insight. Attend to self care tonight and avoid choices that take you off your path. Mind your health.
The exact conjunction of Rahu and Jupiter instigates a fierce battle between polarities. Rahu is the demon self, or human self, while Jupiter represents the spiritual self. Who will win? This collision of Jupiter and Rahu in Leo will provoke an interesting dance between the god-self and human-self. Saturn gives his stern, forceful gaze to these two planets from his perch in Scorpio. This focused energy will add an extra layer of intensity to the already powerful force of Jupiter and Rahu. When the energy of Rahu and Saturn conjoin, a Rudra effect is stirred. This can bring power, potency and intense movement as well as quick changes. This combination increases the theme of working with power authentically and carefully which will intensify after Jupiter moves to Virgo in August.
Rahu and Jupiter invite an integration of opposing forces. This is a time for your inner god to meet your inner demon, your light to meet your darkness. These forces are at play within each one of us. What is your relationship with your darkness? With your light? This will be an opportunity to get more intimate with your modes of operation. Wherever you've been neglecting your darkness, spiritually by-passing, or avoiding it unconsciously, it will show up to test you and your power at this time.
Normally, Jupiter is a comfort and a support, yet the relationship between Jupiter and Rahu is contradictory. Your demon and god qualities will be forced to face each other in the first six months of this cycle. How can both get their needs met, in order for greater harmony within? Where have you been avoiding this integration of your human and god qualities? This is a great time to be aware of where you may be refusing to look at your human parts with authenticity. Simultaneously, spirit is a great ally and a wonderful resource for extra support. However, even spirit wants you to evolve as a human being. It's time to be a fully integrated human. Gather the resources you need for this process.

Moon in 6th tithi
Moon moves through Satabisha today- Varuna's constellation. He sees all and is notorious for a highly critical response to his "all seeing" vision. His ability to notice everything and see with his thousands of eyes, means that nothing gets past his gaze. Taking care of your health and healing practices during Satabisha transits is especially vital, as he will punish those who go against Natural Laws. Cut, clear and sever that which does not serve your health and wellness- physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Clean up your life and notice where you are complicating things with lack of attention and intention.
Late evening, Moon moves into Purvabhadrapada nakshatra and the need for balance- inner and outer- increases. How can you honor the needs of your human self and spiritual self?
Sunday, June 26th
Moon in 7th tithi
Balance and integration are powerful themes today as Moon continues through Aquarius the sign of integration of opposing forces. Ketu's conjunction with the Moon insures there will be a release process- either forced or obliged. The drishti of Rahu and Jupiter on the Moon will invite in an extra necessity for balance and harmony between opposites. As Moon moves through Purvabhadra, Ajaikapada forces the issue of inner and outer balance. He dances between worlds- insisting you step into a more harmonious dance with all your different parts. What polarities are in conflict within you? Part of you wants something new and different, yet another part of you resists the change. Be honest about these needs and stabilize within your body for more integration. The physical is the only things that's real- right now. Stay connected. Moon shifts into Pisces late afternoon, stirring endings and final release. Late Sunday evening, the Moon arrives into Uttarabhadrapada nakshatra and your depths are stirred.
As June closes, Mercury makes another transition, moving into Gemini- joining the combust pair Sun and Venus. Late evening on June 26th, Mercury shifts into Gemini, its own sign, marking a month long transit of mental body clean up. The mental body likes this thought provoking, creative sign, but will meet some heat and conflict with the tumult of Sun and Venus during this transit. This trio will continue to track each other closely through the end of July, so be mindful of the heat and keep your mind cool. The burning heat of the Sun provokes a purification process, this time influencing the mental body. However it may not be comfortable or even effective during the transit.

Moon in 8th tithi
Monday begins with Moon transiting the final sign of the zodiac as the emotional body continues to wane. Endings increase. Let go and release. Where are you clinging or holding on, unable to surrender? As Moon continues through Uttarabhadrapada, connect with your depths and inner wisdom. Dive deep within and find your inner knowing. There is potent transformation available to those who are committed to the exploration of their unconscious territory. Your willingness will take you far. Let your body wisdom be the catalyst for deeper exploration. Where do you feel the challenges you face- within your body? What does this part of your body have to share with you? Listen carefully for the messages and the needs arriving. Your presence alone can be a healing resource.
* Timing given is Mountain Daylight time.
