Leading up to the full moon in Sagittarius on Friday, June 9 at 7:10 AM MDT we have a couple other sign changes that in my mind are quite helpful! Let’s jump right in!
Earlier today (Tuesday, June 6 at 1:27 AM MDT) lovely Venus entered her home sign of Taurus. Venus in Taurus luxuriates in nature. There is something vibrant and verdant here, yet also something graceful and languorous. Since Venus rules the sign of Taurus this is excellent energy to invest in all things Venus … love, money, beauty, art, gardening and more. Personally I think I will schedule a pedicure as that is something that makes me feel positively beautiful! If you have been wanting a massage or spa treatment this is a great time! Venus will spend about a month in Taurus so we do have some time to enjoy this placement!
Later today (Tuesday, June 6 at 4:15 PM MDT) curious Mercury will move into his home sign of Gemini. While the energy of Venus in Taurus is elegant, peaceful and poised … Mercury in Gemini is quick, curious and adventurous! Mercury loves to explore and that can include ideas, neighborhoods, people and more! This is a great time to be more social … if you have been wanting to get out more use this energy as a push for you to become that social butterfly! If you have been wanting to learn more about something this is also a great time to look into a subject or join a group that explores a topic in which you are interested.
Having planets in the signs of their rulership is good for all of us, no matter what signs we have in our natal charts. Planets function their best in the home signs and this gives a sense of comfort and familiarity that helps us to accomplish what we are working towards. It also gives us a sense of peace and ease. We just feel like we are wearing, for example, clothes that fit instead of clothes that don’t feel right on our bodies.
If these two positive changes aren’t enough we also have magnificent Jupiter stationing direct just after the full moon on Friday. More on the full moon in a later post! But on Friday, June 9 at 8:04 AM MDT Jupiter stations direct and once again starts moving forward. This is great for those of us who feel that some of our problems have blown up and now seem out of proportion to the rest of our lives. Now we have the chance to put things right. We see what is out of balance and we can work toward implementing new and better techniques in handling what has not been working in our lives.
Using this relatively positive astrological time to further your personal goals and just to relax and have fun for a change is highly recommended. Hey, it isn’t often that we have the chance to promote harmony, beauty and inner peace in our lives with support of the stars. Often we must push through obstacles and challenges in order to grasp at a sense of peace and balance. Consciously embracing this energy and making the most of it is the way to go. It is all too easy to just set ourselves on cruise until the next major kerfuffle or snafu comes along in our live. Don’t worry, the full moon will bring some excitement to the mix as well as bring up some of our responsibilities, but all in all the energy here is a small reprieve before we get into eclipse season in August.
