“And how will this come to pass?’ He paused and lowered his voice. ‘ In the same way all change comes to pass, I fear, And I am sorry it is so. It will come to pass by violence and upheaval, by flame and by fury, for no change comes calmly over the world.”

Walter M. Miller Jr.

The heavens are like a heavily-traveled highway today, with many celestial events impacting us in both positive and potentially negative ways.

Trustworthy and strong Saturn sextiles kind and beneficent Neptune, lending flashes of deep wisdom to brilliant ideas through the end of June. The flip side of this energy is that you will feel a strong desire to eschew your responsibilities so you can better focus on turning ideas into reality. This isn’t necessarily recommended, as it would mean that other aspects of your life will be ignored at your own peril.

This evening, Moon in Capricorn urges us to address matters of personal importance despite the conflicting energy with the Saturn-Neptune sextile. No time to play as there is work to do. You’ll have plenty of opportunities later to kick back and relax.

Mercury conjoins the planet of subtle actions and reactions tonight, in the sign of Cancer. Cancer is adept at slipping quietly sideways to hide away in a safe place. The longer you put off facing your responsibilities, the more urgent and complicated they’ll become. Your best bet is to face things directly so issues won’t come back to bite you later.

In other developments, Mercury enters the pre-shadow of its imminent retrograde phase in Leo on 20 June 2019. It stations to go retrograde on 7 July 2019 and will remain there until the end of July. It stations direct on 1 August 2019, and from there will be in its post-shadow phase. This threatens to be a volatile and emotional transit that lingers in our emotional center because the shadow phases are set to be the most unstable.

Mercury and Mars both oppose Saturn and Pluto throughout this retrograde, the once every 36-year Saturn conjunct Pluto which has been legitimately the source of all the upheaval and darkness that suddenly may have struck all of us about a month and a half ago.

If you were born with Mercury Retrograde, be especially cautious from the 20th of June until the 7th of July, and again from the 1st of August until the 15th. These may prove to be bumpier times than the actual retrograde phase. The Mercury Retrograde cycle is a good time for introspection and to become more aware of your own patterns. Mercury Rx is a wake-up call and a perfect opportunity to notice when you are caught up in the patterns of your shadow self. It is then that we tend to be less conscious, and not as aware as we could be. Moreover, when we act from this place, we set ourselves up.

Tomorrow is another story.
