Saturday, JUNE 5
Retrograde Mercury returns to a square to Neptune today, which first happened while Mercury was direct on May 22nd. There can be some tendency to overlook or misinterpret facts and instructions under this influence. We can find it hard to follow facts or directions with wandering minds.
In fact, this transit challenges us to see things differently. Consider that we may not need to know the answers now. Conversations can be confusing, evasive, or unsatisfying; or, we might enjoy sharing unusual ideas and fantasies. We could be dealing with self-deception or deception. It can be a time for letting go of strict attention to the rules, only if and where appropriate, and to entertain fantastical or unusual possibilities.
Mercury will form a square to Neptune again while direct on July 6th. Today, we could be returning to a problem or conversation that first occurred around May 22nd.
The day is complicated further by a Mars-Pluto opposition. With the Aries Moon getting between it, we’re especially emotionally invested. While tense and disruptive, it can be revealing. Pushiness tends to meet with stubborn resistance–there may be a contest of wills now. There can be a feeling that external circumstances are undermining our personal power.
As we deal with these things, we may get in touch with our internal motivations. Outside forces can remind us of our need to take better charge of our lives, but shortcuts to gaining control will not work out. This transit can bring a tricky or buried issue to a head. It would be wise to observe whatever powerful feelings that confrontations or conflicts stir under this influence, as this transit has a way of pulling out suppressed matter or emotional “slush.” All in all, there can be a lot of frustrated energy that may lead to a greater understanding if we play our cards right.
The void Moon occurs from 6:48 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a square to Mars), until the Moon enters Taurus tomorrow, Sunday, June 6th, at 1:47 AM EDT.
