Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, June 26- Sunday, July 2
We’ve just had the shift from communicative Gemini to sensitive Cancer sun cycle, and the new moon in Cancer initiated a new moon cycle for us to manifest and activate new intentions. This week is quieter than last week when it comes to major movements, but there are some interesting aspects in play. We’re certainly still under the influence of so much Cancer energy and the sensitivity, moodiness and empathy that brings. The main shift this week will be Chiron, the wounded and healed healer, turning retrograde on Friday night in Pisces. Chiron will be retrograde until December. When a planet (or planetoid) stations (the day it turns direct or retrograde), it can be disorienting or discombobulating, as though that planet’s energies are all exposed, erratic and wild… these days are pivotal and often set in motion some changes. If this year marks your 50th birthday, you’re having your Chiron return (sometimes it happens at 49 or 51). It’s a notable milestone, and just like your Saturn return at age 29ish, the more self-awareness and sensitivity you have going in, the more ease and capacity you’ll have while moving through this rite of passage. I like Chiron’s complexity as an archetype and value the insight he brings. This transit does unearth our oldest and deepest wounds, as Chiron represents in our chart where we feel fundamentally wounded, but there are intelligent and productive ways to work with it.
The moon is waxing and moves through Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio this week. And there will be a Mars/Pluto opposition that I’m paying attention to, a Mercury/Pluto opposition, and Mercury will trine Neptune and square Jupiter.
*If you’re having your Chiron return this year, I’m offering a Chiron Return Special ($44) to assist you during this transformative milestone. Email email@example.com with the subject "Chiron rx" in the subject line to sign up.
