This Week's Intention: Begin again. Allow renewal, change and transformation to move you this week. Commit to new steps and deeper transformation. Get out of your own way.
Mercury has just moved to Gemini, joining the combust pair Sun and Venus- 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. The Moon continues to wane, inviting in depth and introspection as well as emotional body sensitivity. Mars will finally go direct late week, inviting in forward momentum with action steps, courage and inner strength. Sun continues through Rudra's nakshatra, Ardra, provoking strong and challenging emotions, immense power and determination. Stay with it and lean in to the inner messages calling to you.

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.
Late evening, Moon moves to the final nakshatra of the zodiac, Revati, ushering in the support and guidance of Pushan. He support your path with resources. What are you gathering?
Tuesday, June 28th
Moon in 9th tithi
Moon is in transition, release and seeking closure. Notice your emotional body and its need for completion and letting go right now. What are you finishing up and digesting from the previous cycle? As the Moon finalizes its passage through Pisces and Revati nakshatra today, pay special attention to endings. Tidy up loose ends and attend to any needs that will support completion. You are preparing to invite in new possibilities and potential in the coming days. Are you ready? Have you created space for the new?
Late evening, Moon steps into Aries, crossing the tumultuous gap between water (Pisces) and fire (Aries), signaling endings and beginnings. As Moon lands in the first sign of the zodiac, it sparks renewal and a shift towards openings and fresh starts. Once the lunar mirror lands in Ashwini nakshatra, rejuvenation becomes necessary. Attend to self care, health, wellness and vitality. Cut away and release that which doesn't support your inner life force energy.
Wednesday, June 29th
Moon in 10th tithi
Moon travels through Ashwini nakshatra, supporting healing and nourishment through health, wellness and creativity. The Ashvini-Kumara twins rule this constellation, guardians of Ayurveda- the oldest living health science alive. The Ashvini-Kumara twins use the arts as one of their remedies for healing and transformation as they recognize that the healing arts cover all aspects of Creative Intelligence. Allow your creativity to be awakened from within. Support your Shakti, life force energy, to enliven and flow with potent creative acts.
Early evening, Moon shifts into Bharani nakshatra, Yama's domain. The theme of creativity continues, but is intensified by Yama's transformational power. The yoni symbolizes the strength and power of the Divine Feminine and both her wisdom with birth and death- opens and closes. Vulnerability and strength
are intimately intertwined here. Ride the edge and use your vulnerability as a resource for inner change.
Thursday, June 30th
Moon in 11th tithi
Moon continues through Bharani nakshatra, requesting restraint, determination, rest and balance with physical needs. As the Moon shifts into Krittika nakshatra in the afternoon, heat and appetite increase. What are you hungry for? What needs to be purified and released? Late evening, Moon moves to its exaltation degrees in Taurus, amplifying the need for comfort, security and financial support. Emotions deepen and inner tides become stronger. How do you ride the waves?
Mars is now direct! The stuckness shall move. The action steps will come forth. The passion will rise! Mars is direct! For those signs ruled by Mars like Aries and Scorpio, life will start moving forward more ardently now. Enjoy! Now start showing up for yourself. Notice where you've been neglecting and avoiding. You say you want change, get clear on where you're in your own way. If it's not working, it's time to look in the mirror and do something differently.
Mars goes direct on June 30th and must travel back through Libra once again, covering the territory he already moved through. This will take him until July 12th when he re-enters Scorpio. As Mars moves back to Scorpio, he rejoins Saturn here, this time until September 18th. In total, Mars will march through his own sign the majority of the year. Because he must contend with Saturn as well, there is ample opportunity in the coming months to truly integrate polarities that are causing you disconnections and disassociation.

Friday, July 1st
Moon in 12th tithi
As Friday begins, the Moon shifts into its mulitrikona degrees, continuing through Taurus- the sign connected to the 2nd house of the zodiac. Mulitrikona planets function at about 75% of their energy, meaning the Moon will be feeling the impact of stronger currents. You may notice emotions are extra high or extra low, or swinging between extremes. Pay attention to these messages as the feelings emerging are important reminders about needs- needs that are getting met and needs that are not getting met. Your job is to find all the ways in which you are blocking the nourishment from your life and being.
Just after noon, Moon moves to the creative and manifestation oriented nakshatra, Rohini. Ruling power couple, Lord Brahma and Goddess Saraswati, bring creative intelligence with them. Knowing how to work with their supportive energy will help you bring forth your dreams into reality. Where are you blocking the creative flow? How is your story of scarcity, of lack, of not being enough, keeping you from aligning with your full creative potential? It's time to start changing that old story. Gather new resources and support. Stop thinking you can change this without doing something radically different!
Saturday, July 2nd
Moon in 13th tithi
Moon is waning and close to emptiness. Potential increases. New possibilities arrive. Release is taking place. How do you work with the loss, the slowness, the vulnerability arriving? How do you shape the potential, the openings being created? The first half of the day continues to activate strong creativity. Use this time for manifestation and clarifying your vision, dreams and desires. Where do you feel this landing in your body? What does your imagination stir within?
Just before noon, Moon shifts to Mrigashirsha nakshatra and a certain fickleness arrives. The deer influences the day with its flighty movements and cleaver will for nourishment. What are you moving towards? What are you moving away from? Where are you showing up for yourself and receiving the support you need? Where are you resisting and refusing to change old behaviors, beliefs and actions? Nourishment takes work and your willingness to keep moving towards this truth. The ruling planet of this constellation is Mars- currently teetering at the edge of Libra at 29 degrees. Your actions, choices and steps are not clear right now. Go slow and be very intentional with your choices. Stay in alignment and right-relationship with your inner warrior.
Sunday, July 3rd
Moon in 14th tithi
The ever changing Moon continue to move through the skillful and tender constellation Mrigashirsha. It's flighty nature mirrors the movements of a deer, while its symbol is the antler. The branching antlers symbolize the strong medicinal and aphrodisiac qualities offered by the ever growing extension of this powerful animal. Keep reaching, extending and branching out. Your ability to stay in the growth process, rather than stagnation, will keep the life force energy moving through you. Where are you resisting your inner growth process? How is this impacting your outer growth as a result?
Late evening Moon shifts into Gemini, joining Sun, Mercury and Venus there as well. The Moon steps into a conflict zone as Sun and Venus continue to track each other under less than 10 degrees apart. Your emotional body kicks in and heats up. The mind will be equally provoked. Keep landing within. Use the discomfort as a resource for change. What is not working? What is? Life is about finding the resources and working with the challenges as a resource for transformation. Ready to get to work?
Monday, July 4th
Moon in 15th tithi
New Moon is on July 4th at 05:02 am. Metaphorically this is a day of independence in the US, which suits this new Moon and waxing cycle to come very well. How much freedom will you feel? That depends on your willingness to show up for yourself and break open the shadow you are clinging to.
At the time of the New Moon, four connections to Ardra nakshatra occur. The new Moon is in Ardra as well as the Sun. The sign on the horizon is Gemini, placed acutely in Ardra. Gemini's ruling planet, Mercury is in this constellation as well. The ruling planet of this star pattern is Rahu, insuring that shadow will be encountered. Rudra owns this part of the sky and as the storm god, he is sure to deliver. He especially offers emotional outbursts connected to anger and rage. Big waves of tears, grief and pain can be moved as well, which is an important next step for all of us- after just finishing up a Mula Nakshatra waning cycle that certainly tilled the inner soil.
