Celestial Weather Bulletin for June 25th, 2017Note to Readers:
Find out how the Celestial Weather affects your chart. Book a reading with Rich.
The Celestial Weather affects us depending on the relation between our own horoscope and the positions of the planets in our sky. If your chart is connected, the weather will have a strong impact on your life and the energy will enter your life and, through you, the lives of those around you. If your chart is not connected, the weather will happen out in your world and you’ll observe the energies and be less affected. Sometimes we’re actors and other times we’re audience.

Late this week Mars is moving into an opposition to Pluto, which happens roughly every two years. These two destructive/creative energies can be hard to handle on their own; in combination, minor disputes can escalate out of proportion. Death and destruction, scary as they are, are a part of life as they create space for new growth. For example, if you need to tear down something to rebuild, you’ll have plenty of power flowing through you.
An early warning of this power surge may come on Wednesday or Thursday when Mercury aligns with Mars and then opposes Pluto. Pay attention, because you may notice signs of danger ahead.
Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday all have long VOID periods in the afternoon so get your business started early, and then maintain your process.
The week begins with Mars linked to Neptune, charging our imaginations with high goals and possibilities. Emotions easily expand, and the urge to take action to seek our ideals is a powerful pressure. This is followed on Tuesday by Mercury replicating the Mars connection to Neptune, shortly after he squares Jupiter. Mental expansion and flights of fancy are all around and within us. Artists are working with high-test fuel. The trick is to keep at least one foot on the ground. Inflation is the word of the day.
Also there’s a midday VOID on Sunday 11:44am/2:44pm to 3:06pm/6:06pm before she enters Leo. The Leo Moon continues on Monday with a sunny expansive link to Jupiter in Libra…time for some fun. After then, the tensions begin to rise.
Then Mercury moves on to align with Mars on Wednesday under a Virgo (Mercury-charged) Moon. Our language can be a power for great healing or great damage. Criticism, although well intentioned, can be more painful than expected. We have heightened power to get things done with this Virgo Moon pumping the Mercury-Mars-Pluto energy building this week. Find a healthy outlet, because if this is bottled up, it can be explosive.
Tuesday is busy before the VOID at 2:12pm/5:12pm, with Mercury square Jupiter, then Mercury connects to Neptune after the VOID ends at 5:41pm/8:41pm. Expect some problems of perspective, but also a chance to see the “big picture.”
The Virgo Moon on Wednesday makes for an effective workday. Mercury aligns with Mars in Cancer to reveal flaws and defects; avoid angry outbursts if you feel threatened. This is a chance to shore up the base.
Hard Mercury contacts on Thursday to Pluto and a Moon squaring Saturn before her VOID at 1:34pm/4:34pm make this a day for hard news. But we need to know what’s in need of repair or replacement to make progress. The death of a celebrity may express Pluto’s power.
Amid the rising energy described above, the First Quarter Libra Moon comes on Friday, posing the question of where we stand in relationships. We should work to feel safe with the people around us.
On Saturday the Libra Moon makes three hard links to Mars, Pluto, and Mercury, raising tensions during the day before wisdom appears in the evening with her last link to Saturn. Work toward being cool, calm, and collected with Mars approaching his opposition to Pluto on the morrow.
Sunday June 25, 2017 Cancer-Leo Moon
Art flourishes with Mars flowing with Neptune. Enjoy this lyrical energy through the VOID period from 11:44am/2:44pm to 3:06pm/6:06pm. After that the Leo Moon invites us to show off.
Monday June 26, 2017 Leo Moon
Continue basking and feeling large, Leo-style. A day for play.
Tuesday June 27, 2017 Leo-Virgo Moon
Mercury connects with Jupiter and then Neptune, setting off a period of head-scratching around the Moon's VOID from 2:12pm/5:12pm to 5:41pm/8:41pm, lasting until she enters Virgo.
Wednesday June 28, 2017 Virgo Moon
Get up early to make use of the hard-working link between the Cancer Sun and Virgo Moon. Mercury aligns with Cancer Mars to energize efforts to shore up the homestead.
Thursday June 29, 2017 Virgo Moon
Mercury, again, is activated, opposing Pluto in Capricorn, presenting disturbing information that can't be ignored. This comes during the Moon’s long VOID that begins at 1:34pm/4:34pm.
Friday June 30, 2017 Virgo->Libra Moon
In Libra today, the Moon’s only contact is her First Quarter late today. We're looking for solid ground.
Saturday July 1, 2017 Libra Moon
The destructive energy of Mars opposite Pluto is already rising today. Stay calm and back away from confrontation if possible.
This summer, Jupiter in Libra continues in high focus, suggesting an ongoing emphasis on international relations and legal systems. Ethics and public morality are up for review and revision, not always to a higher level. His expansive nature will inflate small issues beyond their ordinary size during this period.
On July 5th, the Sun connects with both Jupiter and Neptune in a two-hour period. Events from last week and this week will have visible consequences. The busy energy lasts through the 9th, followed by a pause until the 17th. Then both Mars and Venus are in stressful links with Uranus and Neptune, respectively. Venus gets a reality check from Saturn that brings her back to Earth on the 24th. Personal choices need to be made.
The next series of major political events comes later this summer, when the issues of this spring resurface and seek resolution. Jupiter squares Pluto (on August 4th), and then there are eclipses in August (the 7th and the 21st), followed by the tension of the final Jupiter/Uranus oppositions (September 27th). And Mercury is retrograde from August 12th through September 5th, bringing events from the past into the present.
Expect the Trump/Russia business to continue to roil the media.
Jupiter is direct in Libra.
Saturn is retrograde in Sagittarius.
Uranus is direct in Aries.
Neptune is retrograde in Pisces.
Pluto is retrograde in Capricorn.
VOID Moon Tables
(As the Moon moves through the signs of the Zodiac, there comes a time when it has made the last connection it can make while in the present sign. From that time until the Moon enters the next Zodiac sign it is said to be VOID. It means that things are "in neutral". It is a time to maintain routines but NOT a time to begin new projects. Ideas and opportunities which come up during VOID moon periods rarely amount to much. It's not a good time to schedule an important first meeting or to make decisions. This VOID time can last from a couple minutes to almost 48 hours depending on the arrangement of the planets in the signs.)
