"UP A LAZY RIVER" ... if only we could just float serenely this week! With the Jupiter-Neptune square perfecting next Sunday (June 16), that kind of tranquility is exactly what we need right now, especially since motivation to do practical tasks can be hard to come by.
We might be feeling disillusioned right now, or be easily distracted, or simply be longing for peace and calm amidst the dramas of life. Some may find that their faith is being sorely tested. Or, we could be experiencing an odd sort of limbo, feeling between worlds and not really able to connect with either realm. Another manifestation of this Jupiter-Neptune square is difficulty being able to tell fact from fiction. It's not a particularly good time to make important decisions, or to blindly accept the truth of what we are told, or to fall under the spell of the newest fad or the most glamorous belief system or guru.
As we deal with the tension of the square, we learn to question long-held beliefs, and to ask questions—especially when intuition is telling us that something doesn't feel quite right. We are compelled to seek a new level of truth within us, learning to rely on that inner knowing when all around us seems to be smoke and mirrors. We are moving beyond wishful thinking, finding our way into a new balance between idealism and realism, between faith and discernment.
SETTING ASIDE this Jupiter-Neptune influence for a moment, we're still looking at a very busy week! The list of planetary aspects is lengthy, and so varied in expression, it's hard to bring it all together in a meaningful way.
So, let's just look at some of the most compelling aspects:
ON MONDAY, the Gemini Sun opposes Jupiter in Sagittarius, already having exactly squared Neptune the day before. In essence, the Sun is activating the energy of the Jupiter-Neptune square, increasing that spaciness and inertia we've already been feeling. The three planets are also forming a mutable T-square that is in effect for a few days, which can increase mental confusion and a lack of willpower, especially when we're under stress. 
At the same time, the Sun is also in hard aspect to both Saturn (on Monday) and Uranus (on Tuesday). These aspects add both a seriousness and a restlessness to the already complicated mix of energies.
STARTING MIDWEEK, Mars moves into action. The Red Planet conjoins the North Node on Wednesday, with the elevated purpose of helping us recalibrate our inner magnetic compass so that it points toward our own True North—in other words, helping us align our personal will with Divine Will.
The Mars-Neptune trine that perfects on Thursday assists in this lofty objective, softening the ego's need to figure it out, and increasing our willingness to allow our intuition guide us.
Our forward motion, however, catches the attention of Saturn, who has set up camp with the South Node and is determined that we follow the old rules and obey the voice of the powers-that-be in the "real world." This draws battle lines between patterns of the past and our highest intentions going forward.
The Mars-Saturn opposition is just one of the challenges we face on Friday—we also have hard aspects between Mars and Ceres, and Mars and Jupiter, both of which bring up resistance from old mindsets and beliefs, especially those that were (are) held by our families and ancestors.
NEXT SATURDAY, Mars hands the baton to Mercury—the Messenger Planet is traveling just a couple of degrees behind Mars, and over the course of the weekend, it forms all of the same aspects Mars formed earlier in the week. The process starts with Mercury's conjunction with the Cancer North Node on Saturday. This alignment should help us focus our minds and our intuition on those higher-path concerns, and enable us to better align our minds with our hearts.
On Sunday, Mercury is in harmonious trine aspect to Neptune, but also in hard aspect to both Jupiter (quincunx) and Saturn (opposition). This makes for very uncertain footing, as we're not sure whether to be optimistic or pessimistic, and whether to trust our intuition or question it. And, with the Jupiter-Neptune square also exact on Sunday, confusion and ambiguity are heightened.
Our psychic and emotional sensitivity next Sunday is also elevated due to the Full Moon, which perfects just after midnight (1:30 a.m. PDT on Monday, June 17). As this lunation occurs, the Moon aligns with the Galactic Center—a black hole that Paul O. Hewitt calls "a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration," and which has "other worldly psychological impact."
More on this profound New Moon in next week's Journal, of course!
A SPECIAL NOTE: If you, like me, are a fan of The Mountain Astrologer, you are no doubt familiar with the name of Tem Tarriktar—the magazine's founder, publisher, contributing writer, and fearless leader. Tem is currently facing a health crisis, and his friends and family are asking for assistance. If you would like to help, or want more information, please send me an email ([email protected]). Thank you for your caring and support for this lovely man.
IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: Your cosmic antennae are being recalibrated this year, as is your self-concept. You are entering a phase of life when you may question many of your previous ideas and perceptions of reality. As your mind adapts to embrace a new vision, you may feel periodically off balance and ungrounded, perhaps even confused or dizzy. Give yourself the gift of deep breaths on a regular basis, and imagine yourself sinking into the lower half of your body. This will help calm the nervous mental energy. Also be sure to drink plenty of water and connect with the natural world as much as possible, to enable this upgrade to proceed in a manageable way. (Solar Return Sun square Neptune, opposite Jupiter, quincunx Saturn, semisquare Uranus, quincunx Pluto)
