The astrology and horoscope forecast for the week of June 21, 2021 – June 27, 2021, features one of the most positive aspects of the year, Venus moving into Leo and Mercury finally turning direct in Gemini.
Can I get an AMEN?
Let’s begin with the cosmic weather event that occurred late on Sunday (in North America): The Sun moved out of Gemini and into Cancer and marked the official beginning of summer in the North Hemisphere and winter in the Southern Hemisphere.
As we move through Cancer season, we leave the airy mental heights of Gemini and dive into the waters of the sign of the crab. In astrology, water signs are nurturing, compassionate, empathic, craves connections and emotional reliability. So, Cancer season is about finding the emotional sustenance that we need, connecting with those we care about and building emotional reliability through those connections. Also, in the mystical kabbalah, Cancer is the sign associated with healing and removing disease (dis-ease) by clearing negative behavior patterns that may be blocking us from living the life we want to live.
Now, there is good news this Cancer season. Jupiter will be in the sign of Pisces and forms a sign-based trine to the Sun. Last year, during Cancer season, there was an aura of uncertainty, confusion, isolation, and despair hovering over everything during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year this has changed (even though we are still in the pandemic), and we will go through Cancer season looking forward to all the potentials and possibilities we can create in the future.
Now, on with the forecast…
Mercury Turns Direct in Gemini
Although Mercury turning direct in Gemini is not the best news of the week, it is right up there with it as Mercury changes course on June 22nd. During the first part of the week, expect another onslaught of communications problems, electronic devices acting up, and plans to go awry. However, as the week goes on, Mercury will slowly move forward. It’s a great time to clear up any communication problems, disagreements and attempt to repair any damage caused during the retrograde. You are also free to make plans and decisions once again.
Sun in Cancer trine Jupiter in Pisces
In astrology, the Sun trine Jupiter is one of the most favorable days of the year, so positive that it should provide somewhat of a protective shield from the worst of Venus oppose Pluto (although Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn may feel the effects of Venus square Pluto stronger).
The Sun and Jupiter are both fiery planets, and even though they are both in water signs, there is still a feeling of optimism, and our focus will be on future potentials and possibilities. Sun trine Jupiter is hopeful, which will be a pretty different attitude than the last couple of years when Saturn was in Capricorn and opposing the Sun, which can be a big downer. Also, this aspect augurs a time when you can take a risk or a gamble on pursuing new opportunities in your life. If you have been waiting for a great window of time to start something new, now is the time to act.
Full Moon in Capricorn
This week we have a Full Moon in earthy Capricorn, and we officially end eclipse season. Now, in astrology, the sign of Capricorn is not as glamorous as Leo or Sagittarius, nor is it as people-oriented as Libra or Aquarius.
Capricorn is an earth sign that is concerned with practical realities. So, during this Full Moon cycle, issues surrounding duties, obligations, and responsibilities will surface. The Capricorn Full Moon instructs us to look at how we utilize our practical resources (most importantly time and money) and look at whether our choices and decisions are adding to our lives or subtracting from it. Since Saturn rules Capricorn, you may need to look at your boundaries and limits and decide whether they are too rigid or too malleable. But mainly, this Full Moon cycle is about letting go of everything that is not adding to your successes in life.
Venus in Leo
Finally, on Saturday, Venus moves out of emotional Cancer and into fiery Leo.
One of my favorite moves is Grease with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, not because the movie was popular, but because the character of Sandy makes choices about love and pleasure.
In the movie, Sandy wants a serious relationship with Danny, the rebel hero of the film. Danny is part of the T-Birds, a group of oversexualized grease balls that shy away from commitment and responsibility and instead thrives on fun and sexual pleasures.
Sandy spends most of the movie trying to be acknowledged and respected by Danny but fails until she understands her desires, wants and needs, and can express her expectations. Once she discovers her value, she transforms into a siren with the powers to lure Danny and convince him (through song) to give her what she wants.
Sandy is a perfect image of Venus in Leo. While Venus is in Leo, we should focus on our wants and desires, our expectations of love relationships, and the value of being respected and acknowledged for who we are. After all, every queen (or king) deserves the best, and that includes you!
