Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius, Your forecast 6/1-6/7

It is hard to find the words for this week's forecast when there is so much happening in our country and world right now.  I feel so much sadness, grief, rage, for our black communities.  Right before I moved down to the desert, the Moms 4 Housing group in Oakland was fighting for their right to affordable housing, and trying to not get evicted with their children.   The gentrification that has been happening within major cities has displaced many black families, black neighborhoods and people of color. We have not only seen the displacement of lower income black families, but we have also seen a rise in violence towards them. This is extremely unsettling and not a direction we as a country should be moving in, nor allowing to happen in our communities.  For it to even be happening in Oakland, which has been predominantly black for decades, is heartbreaking and shows a major problem happening within the country right now. 

  Astrologically we knew this year would be hard on the global economy, and that our systems would be challenged. The ways in which the dismantling of the system is happening is hard for many, but it is time we use this as an opportunity to fight against inequality and demand more from the people in power, otherwise, power should be taken away from them, for the people, by the people. 

I don’t know what to say, or when  we will wake up in a world where injustice and racism is a thing of the past. I fear that based on our history as a species, we are plagued with the inability to see passed our differences, and often incapable of choosing love over hate. But what I can say is that until there is equality for all, and that our systems stop prioritizing a white agenda, the work will never be over, and we should all rise to face injustice in whatever way we can. 

This week astrologically is another doozy. We have a hard aspect between Venus retrograde in Gemini and Mars in Pisces hitting on Tuesday. This square between our planet of love and relationships, and our planet of war, action, and drive, causes us to have tensions when it comes to our fight for peace, and gauging what proper action should be taken. Where do we compromise? Where do we push back? 

Sun conjunct Venus in Gemini on Wednesday may help to resolve some of the conflict we have had the previous day, but only if we feel who we are on a soul level is being recognized by those we are surrounded by. We may feel a need to connect with people who make us feel grounded and safe in who we are and our perceptions of self. This is a good day for reflecting on what you believe about the world and others.

Friday we have a penumbral Lunar Eclipse at 15 degrees of  Sagittarius, as well as Mercury in Cancer making a sextile to Uranus in Taurus. Lunar Eclipses are powerful portals for releasing and letting go of powerful energy that is not serving us. In Sagittarius we are being asked to question our value systems at this time. Who are we? What do we believe in? What divine truths need our attention right now at this moment? Are we living a life that is in harmony with the value systems we project outward? Do we walk the talk? These are all beneficial prompts for reflection for this week's Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius. 

While a lot of us may be fearful for what the future holds, try to find hope in our ability to persevere and change the world for the better. Sometimes the road to getting to a better world is painful, hard, and full of strife. But if we all hold the vision of a world full of equality, love, peace, justice for all, and communities where people of color, black people, women, children, can walk down the street feeling safe, the fight will have been so worth it.

Monday 6/1

Moon in Libra

Moon trine Sun in Gemini 2:28 am

Moon inconjunct Mars in Pisces 5:15 am

Moon trine Venus RX in Gemini 8:20 am

Moon inconjunct Neptune in Pisces 6:05 pm

With the Moon in Libra starting the week out, we benefit from educating ourselves on ways we can advocate for social justice. Libra represents the Justice card in the Tarot, which is a symbol of karma, and the natural laws of the universe. We experience the consequences of our actions in Libra, often mirrored by an external symbol, whether it be a person we are in a relationship with, or a situation that enables us to look in the mirror and see both sides. Gemini also possesses a quality to this, and with transits between the Moon, the Sun, and Venus, we are reflecting on the perceptions of duality, and what it means for things to truly be in harmony, balance, or equal. 

Tuesday 6/2
