What with yesterday’s Gemini New Moon and today as Summer Solstice (read our ritual and psychic self-protection suggestions related to this holiday on our sister blog), we are definitely at a turning point for the year. You may not feel it this week because of the square between Mercury (communication) and Saturn (delays and obstacles but also maturity and structure), but things should definitely move into a different gear by next week if not sooner.

Today’s major aspects are a bit contradictory. On the one hand, there’s a sensitive, intuitive trine between Mercury in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces. This makes us want to communicate deeply, sharing feelings and dreams as well as creating an opening for psychic perceptions. On the other hand, the Sun in Gemini squares Mars in Virgo which may result in friction. With the Moon in Aquarius, things could go either way today. Try to use the Aquarian Moon’s energy for looking forward, past minor squabbles.
