This week’s main astrology offers a useful reminder: reconciliation begins with your own inner contradictions, extends into your most immediate, intimate one-on-one relationships, and opens the way for growth and healthy change. Amanda Painter considers the Gemini New Moon in the context of the concurrent square between Venus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn.

Everywhere you go, gravity and water are part of life. Len Wallick sees gravity and water working together to convey something about life (and your place in it) in relation to Thursday’s Gemini New Moon. In the face of recent tragedy, you still possess the power to choose life, and to make it better for those around you.

We have entered a season of scholastic graduations. What was for many a normal existence of a student in school is now about to become a new life. Len Wallick sees a parallel in the astrology at this time, and offers some implicit options for you to co-create the new normal.

An Invitation to Something New

Do you feel ready for something new? Although that feeling could come from being exhausted with something, Amanda Painter notes that the urge for something new can also emerge from a palpable sense of growing creative energy that needs an outlet. With Venus opposing Jupiter tomorrow and the Sun entering Gemini on Saturday, consider moving forward to meet that new thing.

The Sun, Mercury and Venus are all now moving towards emblematic refreshment — in the form of changing sign (the Sun) or entering a new section of zodiac post-retrograde (Mercury and Venus). If you could use some refreshment yourself, Len Wallick today proposes a simple and practical way to get some.

Steve Guettermann suggests we live in a quandary: we are to care for our planet and one another, yet lack the mental capacity to know why. Conscious human evolution is the tool we have to unlock the secrets of life and release ourselves from this bind. Steve contemplates these ideas and more after a post-rainstorm walk, the Earth’s sweet smell filling him with joy and gratitude.

Synchronization, Symmetry, Exchange and You

The term “day and night” is often used to express things with nothing in common. As Len Wallick reads the current astrology, that’s a misleading perception. In truth, the greater contrast is to be found in a choice: that between looking up or down.

No Easy Way, Just Another Growth Opportunity

You might still be feeling some ripples (or navigating some rapids) after last night’s Scorpio Full Moon. Did you receive some “surprise news” this week? Sometimes a little framing after the fact can be very helpful in getting grounded enough to meet what’s next on the horizon, especially when that is Mars square Neptune.

Ways Of Digging

Part of life on solid ground eventually includes some digging, but dirt is not always involved. Today, Len Wallick compares various types of (and reasons for) digging — in the light of tomorrow’s Scorpio Full Moon, and also Mercury retracing ground it has twice trod already.

Light Over Heat

There is light, and there is heat. Often, the two occur together. Yet, sometimes, it’s better to either convey or perceive one in favor of the other. As Len Wallick interprets the astrology going into next week’s Full Moon, the patient portrayal or perception of light will be the better emphasis.

What I Noticed As Mercury Prepared to Station Direct

Yesterday Mercury stationed direct while tucked into the Uranus-Eris conjunction in Aries. It’s an amazing opportunity to observe for yourself what Uranus-Eris means in terms of our collective consciousness. Amanda Painter found her attention drawn to an unexpected, but timely and apropos, topic.
