  • Conjunct asteroid Hygiea & Chiron
  • Square Saturn & Vesta
  • Sextile Mars

Collective Energies:

Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, keeps things moving and beckons us into taking action. Invite the Aries full moon by honoring your independence and inspiration through passion projects or setting new goals. Lead with your will and this moon may serve you well.

And while all of this may sound great at first, the shadow side can be impatience, easily annoyed, or compulsive (says the natal Aries Moon). Watch out for a bit of emotional avoidance, Aries doesn’t have time to feel things. This in-charge sign activates our inner warrior and passion so be prepared for a bit of agitation or competition even if you lean towards conflict avoidance. Though my favorite Aries superpower is its ability to maintain momentum when things may feel stuck, where Saturn could be the culprit.

Perhaps the more difficult aspect of this full moon is the square with Saturn and Vesta. When Saturn hangs out with the moon we navigate themes of security, scarcity, or responsibility. Things may feel heavier than they actually are so don’t be surprised if some sadness or depression creeps in. Though the upside (even if Saturn doesn’t want one), is patience and a balancing to the extreme movement of Aries. Saturn also feels comfortable being alone and Aries loves being independent, so you may enjoy the possibility of becoming introverted to get realigned with your commitments. 

This full moon hangs out in conjunction with the healers of the solar system, Chiron and the asteroid Hygiea. When these two meet, the same degree nonetheless, we come into contact with our health and places where we crave more healing. With this aspect to the full moon we remember the restraints of our bodies and the care they need for us to reach our ultimate goals and visions.

Pay attention to where you experience momentum and excitement in your life as Aries emotions can activate ambition. Aries full moon emotions move quickly and run the gamut between feeling optimistic to easily angered. Work with this dynamism by getting courageous about your commitments. Take note, when Aries doesn’t have a mission or goal to work towards, it leans more into annoyance, and by all means give that energy something to do!

 

Everyday Ritual Recommendations:

DO // High energy exercise such as kickboxing or running, though be warned Saturn could make you feel slow! Or, find inspirational activities that keep your brain humming.

BE // Focus on some sort of practice for sitting with difficult emotions, as often Aries may want to run away from discomfort. Rose quartz, fluorite, or amethyst can be effective tools for this practice.

EAT // Anti-inflammatory foods such as turmeric and ginger may be beneficial.

WEAR // Red or orange, something with a fall feel that also adds fiery edge.

..Many will need to tune in deep, connecting with our own individual soul’s compass, letting the rest of the world’s opinions fall away. Self-righteousness, overconfidence, and racial conflict are likely to follow as a result of this Moon. But where the North node lies, social media will be ablaze with a sea of opinions, and opportunities to better understand our neighbors. This eclipse’s goal is to remind us we don’t always know everything. Acknowledging and being humbled by that is an essential part of the process. It’s not wise to assume we can comprehend or begin to understand how other people perceive the world, or what they endure. Possibly, it’s then we can start to look at and treat each other as equals, rather than threats. ...

When I think of June, karma is the word that comes to mind. Now I know that is a word that often gets thrown around a bit. In this case, astrologically speaking, karma is neutral. It's neither good nor bad. It just is. Events taking place this month will be karmic by nature. Meaning; many people will be going through something that helps us move from one lesson to the next. These "situations" are a direct result of something that may have happened in the past, be that in this lifetime or another. Consider them hoops you need to jump through to prove your commitment to getting to where you want to go. Many planets are in a combination of Water or Air signs, so naturally, there will be a lot of thought-provoking conversations, and sharing of emotions. Planets like the Sun in Cancer, or Mercury in Cancer can have us...

The New Moon makes her monthly appearance at two degrees of the mutable air sign, Gemini. Gemini is the mercurial master, the magician, negotiating deals and lending a helping hand finding the middle ground. Gemini excels in relating and often encourages us to consider various perspectives in any given situation.

Seeds planted now will begin to blossom at the end of this year. This New Moon is solid coming in at two degrees, and in harmonious aspect to Saturn.
