I simply do not know what to tell you. This week's full Moon on June 4 in the early morning, way before I like to wake up on any given day but especially a Monday, makes your soul weep for the time when all is given. It is a womb like Moon. So guard your needs carefully. Yes, I do know what to tell you. It is up to you to decide to listen, heed or, goddess forbid, put into practice.
As a lawyer who chooses not to practice but who pays his dues to the WSBA (Washington State Bar Association) every February, truly I tell you that this weekly writing grates my nerves at times. It's especially a planetary thing. Right now, each Taurus, Libran, Pisces and, by collateral extension, Aries, Scorpio and Capricorn is being put through his or her planetary paces.
Be a cheerful giver from your heart's inner recesses or keep it to yourself. Yes, again, I do know what to tell you.
See Venus move across the Sun for the last time until 2117. Go to transitofvenus.org on Tuesday, June 5.
Gemini, May 21-June 20, adapting intellectual, the changing mind
Aquarius, January 20-February 18, concentrating intellectual
During your time of year, we all dance between what is truth? But must your dance be the tango? Is it necessary to constantly battle with what you do not agree? So if you do not express your inner conflicts, this sign of mature restraint does not mean your mind is not fraught with disagreements. And, more importantly, does not mean we do not feel your inner dissension. All that is asked is that you do not become codependent that you begin to worry about our unexpressed inner conflicts. If it ain't been communicated to you verbally and clearly, then it does not exist.
Take a note from your air sibling, Aquarius. These fine, fine souls can be the embodiment of the absent-minded professor with an incredible heart. However, do not think for a moment that you'll be forgiven for calculated pains, star child. (Oh, Gemini, know by now, I'm talking with Aquarians. Keep on reading but knock off about 40 percent.) Your mind goes and goes like the Energizer Bunny of a decade or two ago. Let your mind rest in your heart. Accept your reality. See the joy in your world. If you cannot, then begin to cultivate new connections (or re-energize old ones). Hello, fertile bunny ...
Libra, September 23-October 22, initiating intellectual
Yes, I know I skipped a step from the astrological calendar's perspective. You're the next air sign. With your ruler still sitting prettily in the evening skies and looking like she is moving backward, a skipped step makes the recovery all the more sweet. Trust me, scale bearer, your time is coming. Stay true to your ethical soul balanced with a pragmatic view of reality. You'll come out smelling sweet as a rose (and not just any rose, but one of your favorite color!). Make sure you go to transitofvenus.org to get the full understanding of what this means in your life. Here's a hint: Please become the ethical guide (aka conscience) you were born to be. Let Neptune's next 13 years in Pisces feel the soul side of your scales to be juxtaposed with a healthy and enlightened ego who stands up for social justice and all forms of equality. Praise be to the 3rd District, which held that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional!
Cancer, June 21-July 22, initiating feeling (soul)
Pisces, February 19-March 19, adapting feeling (soul)
You try working with those of the water element who believe that they are "spiritual" and "evolved" and come away feeling good. I apologize for my dry ass Scorpio ways when it comes to the initiating (but sometimes unexamined) waters of Cancer. Moon children, you must accept how vulnerable you are to every tide of feeling. This does not mean you must act out on every feeling that comes your way. This Venus transit over the Sun highlights your ability to channel and feel the divinity of love. You have an untutored capacity to give without any expectation of return, simply because you've got it like that! (Didn't know I was going to add the exclamation point until it hollered that I needed to.) Anyhow, you teach Pisces a thing or two about only sharing authentic feelings.
Understand, sign of the fishes, that you can swim with them using lead or an otherworldly substance that is still undefined. When you lose your belief in those inexplicable magical things, you lose the beauty that captivates the rest of us, the mainstream. This transit of Venus (afternoon on June 5, transitofvenus.org) accentuates your fourth house of personal history, soul and how you come home to yourself. Is it the self with a capital "S"? If not, the proverbial chickens roost in your heart of hearts around late July. The first six months of this year were made to challenge your resolve to end any and all disingenuous characteristics and antics. Drama is as drama does. However, the more real, the more love that's given.
Scorpio, October 23-November 21, concentrating feeling (soul)
Read the other two water signs first. Like pork being advertised as "the other white meat," just what are you advertising? It is not as if I am talking about your asking for an assault, but you must take responsibility for your provocative ways. Like the movie The Sixth Sense, where the child saw dead people, you can see unevolved people. It is not your responsibility to help them transform. When they ask, pay, beg or confront, oh, hell-to-the-yeah, evolve their soon-to-be-sorry asses! However, until June 27, hold off on any rampages of appointing yourself the head person in charge regarding another's growth. Be a pre-Darwin soul; you've heard nothing of the origin or evolution of species (although you've just vacationed on Galapagos Isle, OK?
Leo, July 23-August 22, concentrating spiritual (building your identity)
Try as I might, I learn to enjoy adoring you. When you speak unabashedly from your heart's desire, you are ir-fucking-resistible. This Venus retrograde has all the markings of your turning a dance into a romance. Dances turned romantic (props to the late Whitney Houston's "I Want to Dance With Somebody Who Loves Me") are what these next two months are about for you. If there's no real love around you, check yourself. Explore the narrative of what you tell yourself about love. I'll help you. This is what Scorpios (psychologically healthy ones) were born to do for you. I had this story that I could be friends with everyone on the planet if I decided that is what I wanted to be. But who'd love me, for me? I possess strong Leo, too (surprise, surprise, props to the late Jim Nabors of Gomer Pyle fame). What story have you been telling yourself repeatedly about the intersection of erotic and friendship love? You may not be on the right side of your own history, huh?
Sagittarius, November 22-December 21, adapting spirituality, wise adviser
Aries, March 20-April 19, initiating spiritual (fire, visionary)
It is rumored that Jupiter and Juno fought like cats and dogs (or when thunder is explained by the Devil beating his wife ... ). With Jupiter in Taurus and Mars in Virgo, you two fire signs are being taken to task about how you go about manifesting what you visualize. It is not OK to request to be forgiven when you have grown to a clear point of maturity. Sag, you have until June 11 to purify, purify, purify. Act as if your soul were a restaurant and it must be located on the precise spot to bring the best mates to you. Aries, the past year has been about your ability to man up (you female warrior Aries, too). You've had to manage the largesse, the abundances that have been blithely placed in your lap. We trust you, Aries. Do not abuse it, please.
For both assertive fire signs, Juno asks from the sign of Scorpio that you elevate your game on a psychological level. In other words, take the time to at least envision what it is like to walk a city block in 4-inch stilettos. If male, then imagine what it would be like to wear his jockstrap (of course, it is clean). But when the soul is ruling, gender is irrelevant. Your relationships must be on an equal footing or they will not last. That's what Juno moving through the sign of Scorpio means to balance on a soul level. You know equality through give-and-take. Listening rules, much like you use mouthwash after a heavily spiced lunch.
Virgo, August 23-September 22, adapting earth (physical)
Capricorn, December 22-January 20, initiating earth (physical)
Taurus, April 20-May 20, concentrating earth (physical)
Like a lover leaning toward more girth or larger breasts, earth signs desire more from their mates. It is not that the other three elements don't like more [fill in the blank]; it is only that earth enjoys the physicality of lovemaking.
Virgo, of course, you lean toward the lean and the perfect physique. And you have paid (or are paying?) the price for these demands. You can easily be repenting your choice in close mates. They can be picking up on noticing your imperfections like your most critical parent. If not, oh, happy day. No, really, oh, happy day. You dodged a planetary bullet, as it were. This upcoming Full Moon on June 4 at 614a CDT has the fundamental stuff to flood your consciousness with memories from early childhood and high school. Like music, let your frustrations take center stage because, in this way, you can release what needs to. Get on with the business of living the life you have now, not the one you could have had if only more folks had believed in you. Change your perceptions, change your path.
Capricorn and Taurus, you were made to work together on bringing much needed nonjudgmental fun and pleasure into this world. Taurus, you can love yourself a bit too much, but there's nothing wrong with your sense of entitlement at present. This Full Moon brings a challenging aspect between the assertive and receptive sides of your nature. Let your open heart win the day, love or prospect for better employment. Showing your gratitude to someone in a creative and supportive way can make all the difference. Take a lesson from Capricorn's playbook: Reach within first before expecting support.
You early-winter mountain goats know that slow and steady wins not only the race but also the hearts of others. Clear and concise communication draws anyone you desire to be near, near. If someone is putting up barriers, refuse to take it personally. You know what you've done to open your heart and energy fields. A warm and open heart heals all wounds.
The Rising Sign, aka Ascendant, represents your approach to life and the mask you wear. Read that sign as well to get additional information on what is in store this week.
