Unusually there are 2 full moons this month, at the beginning, this Wed 1st or Thurs 2nd depending on where you are located in the world and July 30th/31st in Aquarius. The waxing full Moon this week will be in 9 degrees in Capricorn an industrious, serious earth sign ruled by Saturn. As glorious as the weather is some people may feel increased emotions that could be serious, pessimistic, fatalistic, ambitious or focus on matters of responsibility. This Full Moon is conjunct (within ten degrees) of Pluto, an intense combination. As the Full Moon is always opposite the Sun and this Cancerian Sun is conjunct Mars, the Moon in opposition to Mars may well be felt as extremist, volatile, competitive, sexual, angry or impulsive. It really depends on which houses these planets are passing through in your personal natal chart. The Full Moon conjunct Pluto in opposition to Mars/Sun may also be felt as an extreme need to act 'now or never.' I would say hold your horses if possible and make sure you feel the same way after the Moon starts to wane again (i.e. 4 days after) so from Sunday. Fools rush in and may regret the consequences. On a more calmer, positive note there is a wonderful fortuitous conjunction between Venus and Jupiter at the same time. The power of Venus (the planet of love, harmony, creativity and money) is amplified with Jupiter the planet of expansion. So feelings of warmth, attractive and love may be felt more strongly along with feelings of bonhomie and positivity. It could be a lucky time for some but it depends on one's individual astrology chart.

Happy Summer Solstice and Happy Father's Day to all. Today the 21st June the longest day in the year is full of light, abundance and heralds the soon to be Sun's movement into Cancer, a sign linked to family, the home and nourishment and nurturance. Solstice in Latin means the Sun (sol) stands still (sistere) and this is considered to give much power to the Sun which represents the self. So it can be a positive time to do a ritual to manifest what one desires even if you just burn a candle and say a little prayer. The Moon's movement into Leo square Saturn reminds us of respect for our fathers, elders or mentors which is pertinent for today.

Yesterday 16th June 2015 there was a New Moon in Gemini conjunct Mars equals all systems go! If you've been rushing around and multi tasking, don't be surprised. It's a time of busy, busy but anything you decided you want to begin yesterday could be good. Maybe wisest to wait until any Mercury Retrograde residues have properly dissipated. It's generally a week of erratic energy with the Moon in opposition to Pluto today, an emotionally volatile or intense influence plus the Moon in Cancer on Thursday at odds with Uranus. Try to control impulses and be aware judgements may be a projection. A cluster (stellium) of planets in Leo from Saturday will shift this energy with the Moon, Venus and Jupiter in sunny Leo and the Sun soon in Cancer. A much more cheerful time especially with other positive influences next week.

If you've been having weird dreams in the last several days it may be because the Moon has been waxing towards a Full Moon which culminates today in the fire sign of Sagittarius. The Full Moon's general effects i.e. increased sensitivity, heightened emotions or just feeling crazier or more restless, can be felt for four days after also. The Full Moon in Sagittarius can be felt as a need for freedom or expansion, of broadening one's horizons, a hunger for more knowledge or travelling. The 9th house or house of Sagittarius in astrology is known as the house of dreams, spirituality, religion and is the eternal student sign. Whenever there is a Full Moon it means the Moon is in opposition to the Sun which is in Gemini at present. So there may be a polarity between intuition and faith (Sagittarius) and logic and reason (Gemini). As this Gemini Sun is close or conjunct to Mars and Mercury (Retrograde) both in Gemini and this Full Moon is also in challenging square to Neptune it is important to be aware that confusion, misunderstandings and misinformation are likely. So, what may be felt or revealed as fact may not really be the truth or may have been misunderstood or misrepresented. Knowledge is power so take care not to act or say things based on what you believe is fact until you are clear or sure. IF in doubt wait until things have calmed down, especially as Mercury retrograde can cause confusion. Gossip may also be rife at present. Not nearly as full on as some full moons though in other signs. Mercury goes direct on 12th June so from around 18th June expect technical or machinery blips to settle down if it's been acting weirdly.
