A heads up! This is a period of increasing tension, volatility and intensity activated by multiple important planetary alignments. First on Monday 17th there is a doozy of a Full Moon right on the Galactic Centre whose seismic window is active until the end of the week. Secondly Mercury and Mars both exactly oppose Pluto on the 19th.

Thirdly, on the 20th Mercury enters his retrograde shadow just before the Solstice when the Sun enters Cancer, activating the world axis, as Neptune slows to station retrograde. And all of it in the July eclipse wormhole! You could describe it as a perfect storm.

June 17 2019 Full Moon 25° Sagittarius

A doozy of a Full Moon as Node of Fate in Cancer conjunct Mercury/Mars opposes Pluto/Saturn/South Node and squares disruptor Eris activating the July eclipse hotspots. Pluto/Mars at max – out of bounds and out of control – on the Nodes of Fate is a predictor of volatility, violence and power grabs. Moon conjunct the Galactic Centre is a collective fate point.

The Chandra Symbol for the Full Moon SAGITTARIUS 26:

Climbing the steps of the pyramid of the sun  

“Classical Mayan civilisation re-enacted in fresh forms. Always having the Greater Sun beating down, always aware of the vaster picture. You tap a sensibility that is profound and extraordinary, the greater Gods and the human scene juxtaposed mightily. In tune with progressive evolutionary currents, you work very hard to reinstate the sacred upon the next spiral. Tuned in to what is really happening here. An expanded space for dreaming, remembering, conceiving, visualizing, and creating. Absolutely knowing that the galactic forces are integral to every breath, and moving toward true galactic citizenship with a passion.”

Neptune stationing at his most slippery right in the seismic window means miscommunication, disinformation, avoidance of truth and confusion just when the stakes are at their highest.

In your own world, physical grounding is going to be extra important. Stay right away from dramas and arguments and watch it all play out from your witness perch. Don’t make any big decisions or sign contracts -what you see is not what you get.

Aries Weekly Forecast: June 16-23, 2019

This is definitely not a week to go out all guns blazing, but to stand by with a fire extinguisher. Monday’s Full Moon falls across your communication axis whilst together Mercury and Mars mix it with Pluto, Saturn and disruptor Eris on the key angles of your chart. Both home and career are under pressure right now. If you are to avoid arguments spinning out of control with your family or tribe, you need to take a long hard look at your personal dynamics. It looks as if change with a capital C is on its way at work as you head towards a wild card solar eclipse in 2 weeks. Make sure you are in a strong negotiating position and be ready to draw a line in the sand.

Stage a tactical retreat until the storm blows over.

Taurus Weekly Forecast: June 16-23, 2019

Rarely has there been a better time to deploy your famous patience, stability and diplomacy. Take a step back from any dramas or arguments and quietly get on with your own life. Monday’s Full Moon puts your finances forefront and entre stage. With the Moon in your 8th House of shared resources, taxes and inheritance, first make sure your personal security is watertight, then with the support of your personal planet Venus, brainstorm some creative ways to increase your income streams. Double check all your texts, emails and posts for potential misunderstandings and don’t reply to anything in the heat of the moment.

This, too, will pass.

Gemini Weekly Forecast: June 16-23, 2019

Any week with so many big planetary alignments is bound to increase the chances of glitches, misunderstandings and cross purposes and on top of that, on Monday 17th the only Full Moon across your sign this year doubles down on the potential for drama. It is at odds with slippery Neptune in your 10th House of career just as Neptune slows to turn retrograde. Both Mercury and Mars are in a stand-off with Saturn and Pluto in your financial zone. All this suggests it would be wise to take stock of the bottom line, double check expenses, outgoings and contracts making sure they are watertight and hold off on any important discussions about money, until the dust has settled after July’s eclipses.

Strengthening your foundations.

Cancer Weekly Forecast: June 16-23, 2019

Knowing that it’s set to be one of those times when everyone is on edge, extra-sensitive and prone to running around like headless chickens, you can choose to quietly withdraw and retreat to your own sanctuary of choice. Monday’s Full Moon lights the blue touch paper on Mars/Mercury in a stand-off with Saturn/Pluto across your own and your opposite sign, meaning that relationships of all kinds-personal and professional- are primed to detonate without the slightest provocation. Choose instead to channel this potent energy into making some important decisions about permanently cutting out toxic alliances and cementing bonds with those who have your best interests at heart.

Discovering who is for you and who is against you.

Leo Weekly Forecast: June 16-23, 2019

If you remember to take nothing personally in the next week, no matter what happens, it will save you arguments, heartache and broken friendships. This is a stormy time for everyone-no exceptions-when emotions hit a highwater mark yet nothing is resolved. Monday’s Full Moon falls across your angle of alliances, friendships and groups, but a volatile standoff between Mercury/Mars and Saturn/Pluto suggests confrontations, challenges and chickens coming home to roost. Do nothing to make a difficult situation worse and step right away from any dramas. With slippery Neptune slowing to turn backwards, nothing is as it seems.

Riding out the storm.

Virgo Weekly Forecast: June 16-23, 2019

If you go into the week expecting changes and disruptions to your plans or sudden reversals of long held commitments, you won’t be fazed by events. Monday’s Full Moon is like unexploded dynamite and it falls across you angles of home and career. On top of that, Mercury and Mars are in a volatile standoff with Saturn and Pluto so everyone will be both thin skinned and ready to blow without provocation. Meanwhile Neptune in your relationship zone is slowing to turn backwards at his most slippery. The upside of alignments such as this is that you may finally see someone in their true colours-always important to know.

Follow your own course and wait until it blows over.

Libra Weekly Forecast: June 16-23, 2019

You’re going to need to draw deeply on your unrivalled diplomatic and peacekeeping skills this week. Even if you’re not in the firing line, people around you will be, making them thin skinned and liable to fly off the handle at the slightest remark. The Full Moon gives you an escape route in the form of some sort of travel, even if it’s just a day away, and any quiet time you can grab will give you a bigger perspective. The most challenging areas of your life will be home and career where Mars/Mercury are in a knockout fight with Saturn and Pluto. If push comes to shove, choose truth and stop avoiding the elephant under the carpet.

A little peace and quiet goes a long way.

Scorpio Weekly Forecast: June 16-23, 2019

With both your sign rulers-Mars and Pluto-at war with each other incited by Mercury and Saturn, this is definitely not a time to issue ultimatums, seek revenge for old grudges or burn bridges behind you. If you do, there will be no going back. It’s a weirdly volatile energy cocktail with an intense Full Moon and slippery Neptune slowing right down to turn backwards. Your priority needs to be your finances, in particular shared resources, taxes and longstanding contracts. Luckily, helpful Jupiter is in this zone to support you in finding the confidence to face realities and turn setbacks into success. First, you have to accept what needs changing and then just do it.

Staying focused on what really matters.

Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: June 16-23, 2019

On Monday, the only Full Moon all year in Sagittarius ends one personal cycle and sows the seeds of another. Remember, emotions always run high when a Full Moon activates your own sign and everything feels deeply personal, so take a step back and make your mantra:” This too will pass”. Things may come to ahead financially with Mars/Mercury in conflict with reality planets Saturn and Pluto in your angle of earned income. If they do, face it head on -the truth will literally set you free. Avoid pointing the finger of blame and put your finances back on to a solid footing. Partners will be supportive as long as you keep them in the picture.

Keep calm and carry on.

Capricorn Weekly Forecast: June 16-23, 2019

There’s no sugar coating it, this is set to be a challenging week for just about everyone and that is particularly true for you as a Capricorn. Emotions will be running right from Monday’s Full Moon and intensified by Mercury/Mars opposing reality planets Saturn and Pluto in your own sign. Add into the mix slippery Neptune slowing right down to turn backwards and you have a strange cocktail of both aggression and confusion .Draw on all your natural talents of resilience, long term strategy and focus and if partners-personal or professional- oppose you, decide what is negotiable and non-negotiable and stick to it.

Trust your own judgment.

Aquarius Weekly Forecast: June 16-23, 2019

You have at least one planetary ace up your sleeve this week, Aquarius. Monday’s intense Full Moon lights up compatible air sign Gemini across your axis of creativity where expansionist Jupiter is working with you to launch something close to your heart out into the world. That said, there may be roadblocks or glitches to overcome as Mercury/Mars are in direct conflict with reality planets Saturn and Pluto in your zone of work. Take it as a sign to go back over your blueprint one more time and you may just discover innovative ways to improve it. Then wait until week beginning June 24th to seek support and backing. On the other hand, if you’re only just beginning to incubate something new, keep it under wraps until after July’s eclipses.

Everything in its own time.

Pisces Weekly Forecast: June 16-23, 2019

For you as a Pisces, this is an important week. A Full Moon on your axis of life direction only happens once each year and always signals endings and beginnings. Fortunately, you are supported by expansionist Jupiter conjunct the Sagittarius Moon on Monday lighting up your career zone. This suggests that you’re definitely on the right track, even if events conspire to make you question your own choices. Knowing in advance that others will be extra thin skinned and difficult, resolve to sidestep conflict or dramas and trust your own judgment. You can afford to, since the approaching July eclipses will see your creativity spark then catch fire.

Your instincts are your compass-trust them.
