In April we saw the grand cross that brought about many events in the world and situations, endings and complexities in our own lives. It was a month packed with so many incidents it was hard to keep up with all that was going on.
Uranus and Pluto continue to be in a square to each other that continues into 2016. You don't have to be an astrologer to be aware of the negative energy that heats up in the world at times and see the overall anger and angry talking heads when you turn on the news as these planets are set off.
This is the result of the Uranus-Pluto square which is an intense and stressful planetary configuration, that will ultimately bring permanent changes to the world and in many of our lives. Events around the world will heat up now, and changes will occur in our lives if this is aspecting your personal chart.
As of this writing Uranus and Pluto have separated by three degrees but are well within orb of each other for events to occur, and they will.
It only takes a third planet to set off this configuration and this month it will be Mars in Libra.
June's full moon occurs Friday, June 13 at 22 degrees of Sagittarius. On this day Venus opposes Saturn at 17 degrees in Taurus/Scorpio and Mars squares Pluto, amping up the energy of this moon.
Mars /Pluto will set off the Uranus-Pluto square along with the full moon.
The Sagittarius full moon is the natural ruler of the ninth house of foreign matters, travel, education and world view. This is a powerful full moon!
Venus opposing Saturn will end some situations and relationships and could also relate to financial matters. There could be news about women.
Mars square Pluto is a volatile transit that will bring out the bullies in many forms in our lives and on a larger scale. This is an angry transit and we will see angry and volatile events on a personal level and in the world.
The Uranus-Pluto square has bought about violent incidents over the past several years and as this post is being written another school shooting has just occurred near Portland, Ore. which is becoming a common theme. According to reports the shooter has been killed.
Another news report is stating Iraq is in a state of emergency and a civil war may be looming.
The energy of this full moon/transit has already begun at the time of this post and the full moon shows us ninth house incidents-education, schools and foreign affairs.
The energy of a full moon generally begins 5-7 days before and after the full moon.
Mercury is retrograde in Cancer during this period and we will see events we have dealt with before occurring again in the world and our lives.
June 25, Mars opposes Uranus and this is another volatile and explosive incident and will bring events some of them unexpected and shocking. We will start to see the energy of this transit the week of June 22.
These transits will affect your chart personally if you have a Sun sign between 12-18 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries or Libra or any other planet in Cardinal signs at these degrees.
You will be affected by the full moon if you have cardinal planets at these degrees or Fixed planets (Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio, Taurus) around 16-19 degrees.
Otherwise, you will see and feel this energy play out in the world and in those around you, but unless something else is aspecting your chart you may not experience and jolting changes.
My advice is to take the generally positive theme of Sagittarius and look for ways to express it-expanding your world views, ideas and thoughts and see where they take you. You could be considering travel or education in some form. And a full moon in Sagittarius can always bring out the arm chair travelers! Go toward the expansive, rather than negative in some form.
If you are being aspected stay calm and do not play into the angry energy. Now is not the time for confrontations or battles unless someone else starts them. Even still, choose your battles carefully.
And lastly, remember like all things, this time too shall soon pass.
