This Week's Intention: Activate your full creative potential with slow, attentive steps.
Be mindful of burnout and misusing your life force energy. Channel your creativity consciously- in order to maximize your manifestation magic!
The new Moon in Taurus and Rohini nakshatra behind us, a creative and passionate cycle begins. As the Moon continues to wax, manifestation comes to the forefront. Needs increase, as well as the awareness of what your needs are. It's time to create what you want and get results! But be sure to start this process by first honoring the the seeds you're planting with tenderness and presence. Sun and Venus in combustion continue to heat things up this week. Mercury joins this steamy dynamic on Tuesday, amplifying mental body tenacity. Rahu and Jupiter move closer together, causing confusion and overwhelm with power, authority and the masculine, as well as intense desire. Mars moves to the edge of Scorpio, preparing to land back in Libra next week. Seek resolution with your actions.

Moon in 2nd tithi
The week begins with the intense energy of Ardra just as Moon begins its waxing cycle. The emotional body is still fragile, inward and sensitive. Moon moves through Gemini, while its ruling planet Mercury moves to the edge of Aries. The mind and emotions are delicate today and Ardra's ferocity may provoke unpredictable emotional outbursts from you and from others. Passions are high, confusion is strong, overwhelm is present. Do you choose to land in the storm or in the eye of it. You get to use your power with freewill. How do you use your inner strength? Before midnight, Moon shifts to Aditi's domain- offering nourishment, resources and softer, gentler steps. Where do you feel this sense of support in your body. Keep landing back here again and again.
Tuesday, June 7th
Moon in 3rd tithi
As Moon continues through Punarvasu today, allow your steps to soften. What are you learning about your needs? What resources feel out of reach? What are you calling in for the cycle to come? Drop into your inner wisdom and allow Aditi's expansive awareness and unifying clarity to help you align with deeper presence. Early afternoon, Moon shifts to its own sign, Cancer, bringing more feeling to the heart center. Without the gaze of the other planets, the Moon will be able to experience more purity in the coming days. Late evening, Moon moves into Pushya nakshatra, the nourishing star. Keep landing in the sensation of being full, taken care of, comforted and well fed by life. Where do you feel this in your body? Allow your breath to bring you back to the now.
June 7th, Mercury shifts to Taurus, joining the heated dynamic of combust Venus and Sun who continue to track each other closely. Retrograde Mars and Saturn also give their gaze to these three planets, which causes heat and pressure to intensify. The mind heats up in this transit and may feel extra sensitive, vulnerable and charged as a result. This cycle will provoke inner excavation and transformation within the mental body. Explore places where you are stuck, resistant or refusing to make change. There is liberation possible for those who directly face bad habits, inner conflicts and the opposing forces within. Relationships will prove to be a profound mirror for this change process. Notice where you are rejecting the very nourishment you crave.

Moon in 4th tithi
Moon continues through Pushya today. Your job is to keep landing in the sensation of nourishment within. Where does this feeling arrive in your body? As challenges and conflicts pull you out of this sweet, solid center, use this feeling as a mantra, as a tuning fork continually. This essence is your reminder of who you truly are. You can keep landing back in this place of comfort over and over again. You will likely need extra reminders today, so give your self sacred pauses consistently. Late evening, Moon shifts to Ashlesha nakshatra and Sarpa's energy of illusion and confusion sets in. The mental body will be in a quandary. Try not to loose sleep over this.
Thursday, June 9th
Moon in 5th tithi
Ashlesha's quality of transformation is enlivened today, but not without heating up the mental body. As a Mercury ruled nakshatra, the mind is intimately connected with the flavors of this star. Mercury is now moving through Taurus with combust Venus and Sun. This steam is clouding the mind and may cause excess heat as a result. Making big decisions right now is not ideal. Watch out for rash choices and making decisions in an aggravated or extreme state. You may also feel uncertain about what to say yes to and what to say no to. Pause and align with your inner knowing before making any decisions. Late evening, Moon leaps into Leo, a tricky gandanta (gap) between water and fire signs. Sudden change arrives as sparks fly. Moon will be amplifying the challenging combination of Jupiter and Rahu in the coming days. Be mindful about how you use your energy and power.
Friday, June 10th
Moon in 6th tithi
Ketu and Saturn give their gaze to the Moon over the next two days as Moon moves through fire sign Leo. Moon also conjuncts the powerful combination of Rahu and Jupiter who are currently only a couple degrees apart. Jupiter symbolizes purity of knowledge and wisdom as well as spirituality, while Rahu is notoriously connected to the opposite- impurity, confusion and strong worldly desires. The Moon will be mirroring these parts of your inner landscape and personal mythology very acutely at this time. What do you need to identify about your relationship with power and authority? Who and what is keeping you from stepping into your full body yes?! Where are your human and spiritual parts in conflict? Call in your ancestors today for guidance and support as Magha nakshatra is illuminated. Late evening, Moon shifts to the fertile and creative nakshatra, Purvaphalguni. Create something.
Saturday, June 11th
Moon in 7th tithi
Purvaphalguni epitomizes creativity, fertility and the act of creation. Put your Creative Intelligence to good use today by planting your seeds of desires with consciousness and clarity. Manifestation is a strong theme this waxing cycle and today is a powerful day to support this process. Be aware of where you are forcing or pushing for outcome. Where are you resisting full abundance and all possibilities? Be clear about your needs, but let the Universe organize intelligently for you. Keep your vision alive through painting, drawing, dancing, singing and creative acts! Where do you feel your abundance within? Where does this wisdom land in your body? Use this feeling to create and inspire more. Be very cautious today and tomorrow of burning up your Shakti, life force energy. Less is more. Venus is at the edge of Taurus now. Your feelings and creative resources are fragile and vulnerable in the coming days. Be attentive to your inner waters.
Sunday, June 12th
Moon in 8th tithi
Minutes after Sunday begins, Moon shifts to the latter half of the Phalguni constellation, Uttaraphalguni- ruled by the Sun, shifting into Virgo mid morning. The ancestors love your consistent, thoughtful steps. Actions that align with integrity, legacy and lineage. Yesterday brought strong desires, today will ask you to be present to your long term stability and need for sustainability. Part of you is pushing too hard right now and forcing outcomes. Are these really the steps that will bring the most fruitful harvest? Be very attentive to your choices, energy use and what you give and share. Less is more on every level right now. It's way too easy to burn out and misuse your life force energy. Go slow, even if your tendency is to speed ahead.
The heated war between Sun and Venus pauses as Venus shifts to Gemini on June 12th. As Venus enters a friendly sign, it separates from the fire of the Sun for a moment. Though Mars still gives his gaze to watery and creative Venus, he charges her up, rather than burns her out. This is a very powerful cycle for creativity and potent manifestation. The previous weeks have purified, clarified and helped you simplify life, relationships and needs. This trend continues once Sun hops into Gemini on the 14th. Once again, watery Venus will be closely conjunct fiery Sun, causing a heated combustion to take place. This war story continues for the coming months- on again and off again. You may notice relationships, money matters, self worth and power issues to be flaring up as a result of this dynamic.

Moon in 9th tithi
The mental body is activated today as Moon moves through Mercury's sign, Virgo. Just as Monday begins, Moon shifts to Hasta nakshatra- insight and awakening arrive.

Today, the vision will be bright, your sight will be illuminated. Pay attention and move towards the light. Clarify and activate your inner truth. Your inner knowing will be strong so listen carefully.
