Monday is Moon Day so let’s have a listen to the State of the Moonion. If I was the type of astrolonaut to claim there are slices of the celestial cake richer than the others, I would say the Moon is currently chewing through one of the sweetest two for today the waning Crescent dances in the Sacred Hoop: the Silver Gate on the Hand of the High Man. This is the birthplace of Sol whose mysteries I decoded in my last StarryTelling Podcast to the magical music of Gemini Venus Marya Stark. Hear here if you are so inclined.
The Moon currently sings the trickster tunes of Gemini. She reminds us today that youth is truth. As She wanes through the midpoint of the Uranus/Eris – Venus/Jupiter Fire Trine, Her Gemini winds blow Aries sparks of revolution into roaring flames of Leo play and sovereign self-love. Between Sextiles to Jupiter and Venus, She and Pisces Chiron Square off for a challenging debate about suffering in the Earth Game. The Court Jester laughs as she juggles Mitres and Crowns. Ms. Gemini Moon will enjoy a few extra-trickster hours void of course before returning home to Cancer at 11:13 tonight.
On Tuesday, it’s a group hug with Mercury and Mars to remind the masculine it’s okay to voice His feelings. Mars has been Under the Beams of the Sun since April 17th and won’t rise from the Underworld until August 5th. Now, as Mars reaches Opposition to Pluto, a little love and encouragement from Mother Moon is exactly what He needs and, after all, Tuesday is His day of the week. Then… Drum roll please…. for July 15th! Before the Curtain of light sets into night, Moon and Sun align in Her favorite Sign. This Cancer New Moon in the 24th Degree will form a loose Grand Water Trine to Retrograde Pisces Chiron and Retrograde Scorpio Saturn. Get ready to open the floodgates for a moonth of community-centered self-care. Bring some tissues and please know this review of the tidal waves that have crashed upon your shores since 2012 will be a great gift to your tribe. Relax, release, let die, and be revived.
If we dive deep enough, we might just find our way to the Fires that breathe like dragons through the vents of the ocean floor. Can you hear the Lion’s roar? Moon makes Her way into Leo on Jupiter’s Day and meets with that Gas Giant Guru the next before ushering Venus into Virgo Saturday evening. We engage with a study of sovereign self-love to heal patterns that have plagued past partnerships. Moon embraces the Goddess to acknowledge the last test of her 19-month quest as She prepares to retrograde herself from West to East to be initiated into a new investigation of just what it means to serve as a righteous and honorable Queen. Will Her Grace be courageous enough to compost the throne she has earned into the soil that will host the seeds of rebirth? Relax, release, let die, and be revived. This summer’s gonna get a little hotter, but don’t sweat the burn. Have fun in Sun and love what you learn.
See you in Space!
