Astrology for the week of June 27 - July 4


The Capricorn full moon wraps at 8:07pm PDT on Sunday June 27 and not one minute too early in my opinion.   I know I feel the responsibility of Capricorn and also the hard work, it can be tiring, for sure.    After the Full we move into Disseminating  where we lean into sharing our circles with others.  We share our friends, we share our groups, we share the space of common goals.   

On July 1 we can feel like goals are impossible and actions seem blunted by Mars oppose Saturn.   Timing may be such that we need to take a moment and pull back and re-evaluate.  It could also be time of super narrow focus, hard energy and striking hot iron, presents a result.    

When the Moon forms the Last Quarter phase our personal will and vision comes up for some more actions.   Self-interests,  POV and personal efforts are important in these final days of the waning moon.   This 29 day cycle of Gemini lunar moon is still speaking to us about our communication, getting knowledge on the ground, informing our beliefs and learning to pivot.   

On last quarter, with Moon in Aries it is all about making it personal.   What do I want, see, feel, believe, know?   It could get bumpy between July 1 and July 3, Mars oppose Saturn on the 1st and Mars square Uranus on the 3rd



Mars in Leo wants to be a big shot, “Here I am!”  Saturn in Aquarius is not interested in show boats and is more focused on others and community.   Uranus in Taurus is interested in ingenuity with practical applications.  It wants to build something from the ground up that is brilliant.  Mars in Leo can be too brash and explosive in temper and act rash and miss the importance of something unique or even brilliant.  Ego is up.    There will no doubt be some world events that speak to this tension but on a personal note watch your own energy and make sure your actions are thought through and are productive.   Also take care while driving during this period.  There is NO reason to speed or engage in road rage.   Take your time.     






June 27 , 2021   

8:07pm   PDT


Disseminating: Share information; find a teacher or someone who has more knowledge. Perhaps there was a big ol’ blow out on the full and one feels in need of support and help, this is the phase to reach out to one who knows more. This is when we find a rabbi or a minister or therapist who gives us more insight.   And of course, you too may be ready to teach and share your own information.  



Focus on:  How are sharing your friends?  How are you sharing the common goal you have with others?  How are you sharing your favorite organizations?  





Special focus:


7/1 Mars opposition Saturn – Frustrations of personal endeavors versus groups.  Actions in general feel restricted.  Work over play. 





Last Quarter Moon Phase

July 1, 2021

2:10pm PDT 





Last Quarter moon:  Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense.  And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action.  It is a time for living “The serenity prayer” 


God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.




Focus on:

How are your actions dependent on your personal POV?  How are you serving self in the best way possible?  How are harnessing your personal drive to take care of whatever needs fixing/improving?  



Special focus 

7/2:  Mars square Uranus.  Be careful with actions.  Tension between practicality and daring.   Find something in between.  Take care driving.  

7/4: Sun square Chiron:  Emotions versus independence.  Family versus self.  Finding the middle ground. 



Have a safe and sane 4th of July.

Capricorn Full Moon - June 24 at 11:39am PDT


Capricorn Full Moon

June 24, 2021

11:39am PDT 

3 Capricorn 28



At this full moon ask yourself some questions:

How are you spending your days? 

What is your focus? 

What do you do with every hour of your day?  

How do you spend your time? 


This is not rhetorical.    Seriously, how do you spend your time?  


In astrology, Saturn, the ruling planet of Capricorn, also has the Greek name, Cronus which means ‘Father Time”.    Saturn and Capricorn both speak to time.   Saturn asks about our time management and Capricorn who is driven by results that he/she understands can only be achieved by focused efforts over time.    If Capricorn knows anything it is about how to get results and at the full moon in Capricorn, just like the New Moon in Capricorn (January 12, 2021) we understand in our souls that we are the CEOs of our life.  Our inner CEO tells us how we use our time.  No one else but us calls the shots even if we must answer to others – our response is determined by our inner CEO.    Is our inner CEO a complainer?  Is our inner CEO a brawler filled with anger?  Is our inner CEO a peacemaker at any cost?   Is our inner CEO fear based and doubles down in worry all the time?  Is our inner CEO thin skinned and always protecting ego?  Why ask these questions now?    Well, you can’t get a full moon without the Sun opposing the Moon.  It is on the Capricorn full moon where we use the very responsive, sensitive and moody Sun in Cancer to tap our emotions and inform us if our CEO is really on the right track.    Perhaps this full moon for example, we wake up and wonder, “Do I get into brawls all the time because it makes me feel energized?  Maybe there is another way to get energized without the fighting?  Maybe I go hunting for bear because I want to feel alive?”    On the Capricorn full moon, our emotions (guided by Cancer) talk to our psyches, or our psyches talk to our emotions and both of them are wondering about our inner CEO’s job performance.  Does it need a new approach?   Are we using pragmatism to enhance our life or are we using it to marginalize our goals?   Perhaps Jupiter can help us.  


Jupiter is pronounced in this full moon chart with a sextile to the Moon in Capricorn and a trine to Sun in Cancer.    Jupiter brings opportunities and, in this case, Jupiter is in Pisces tapping into something bigger and mysterious. Synchronistic events or moments will have opportunities baked into them.    Jupiter in Pisces sextile Moon in Capricorn speaks to something practical but can be joyful.  It could be a super smart idea or new approach.  Or we have a success that has taken a long time in the making that shows up.    It could just be a belief system that is injected with new vision.    The Sun in Cancer has a strong gut and can coax the moon, like a good partner,  ‘Hey, let’s go for it, let’s embrace this opportunity”   It is also possible that what comes up will not have fruition during the three day full moon window but it could lay the ground work for a later success.     Remember, with Capricorn or Father Time nothing is ever wasted.   


Amplifying the unworldliness to this full moon three-day phase is Neptune stationing retrograde on the 25th.  Dreams and daydreams could take us to places that we have forgotten or have yet to experience.   Neptune always encourages a deep dive even if we think we are just going to _(blank)___ for a quick second or moment and then we realize it’s hours later and we are in Alice’s rabbit hole.   Between Jupiter and Neptune and the pronounced Pisces, there is a journey in this Capricorn full moon even if we don’t leave our backyard.    


As you wonder about your adventure there is one last thing to consider on the Capricorn full moon 


“No one on his deathbed ever said, ‘I wish I had spent more time on my business.’”  - Arnold Zack



Happy traveling.

This Week in Astrology. June 19-26


We continue the waxing moon.  First quarter moon started on 6/17 and wraps on 6/21.   How are you pivoting when you feel pinched?  How is your communication when you are trying to get informed?  How are your managing your schedule when you are dealing with a lot of details?   Do you know how to duck and sway when receiving incoming? 


We have a lot of planetary action,  Jupiter retrogradeMercury direct and Neptune retrograde on the 20th,  22nd and 25th and Sun enter Cancer on 20th.     Jupiter in Pisces and Neptune in Pisces poke in our emotions and our psyches—our emotions keying into things we might not understand but vibing something might need our attention.  Mercury direct in Gemini is a mental relief.  Sun in Cancer activates our family, roots and just a desire to get cozy.  Capricorn full moon brings out responsibilities.   We may like the focus of those responsibilities as it helps ground us, even if it means drudge work.   

First Quarter Moon 

June 17,  2021 




Focus on:  What actions are you taking that super detailed?  What actions are you taking that speak to the facts?   What actions are you taking that are driven by precise information?

6/23: Venus oppose Pluto.  Money. Love. Values feel tweaked and parts are ready for an overhaul. 





Full Moon Phase –  

3 Capricorn 48 

June 24 

11:39am PDT 




Full Moon:  We make the needed adjustments on the things we planted. Usually, emotions are up and running and for those people who perhaps did not utilize the new moon and the rest of the waxing moon, this is when emotions can get the better of us.  There can often be a big emotional break, for no other reason than to get back on track.   Some partnership will offer up some balance.  The moon is bright and full and there is no room for shadows, what is reflecting on you?  


Capricorn Full Moon Post to come 



Special focus 

 6/25: Neptune station retrograde (separate post)

6/26: Venus enters Leo   

Neptune station retrograde June 25 23 Pisces 12




June 25 Neptune station retrograde 23 Pisces 12 

Dec 2 Neptune station direct 20 Pisces 24 

2025 – Neptune enters Aries for six months.   

2026 Enters Aries for 15 years.  



Neptune spends half of the year going backwards which suits him fine since everything is fuzzy for him even on good days.   Outer planets like Neptune, Uranus or Pluto in retrograde are not nearly as problematic as the inner planets such as Mercury, Venus or Mars (who was part of the problem that made 2020 so awful last year).   Now Neptune is in the last decan (10 degrees) of Pisces and so we are in the final five years of this journey that started in 2012 and ends in 2025/26. 


The last time it was in Pisces was between 1847 and 1862 which was the run up of and the beginning of the American Civil War.   Seeds are planted during Neptune’s trek in Pisces.  During that Neptune in Pisces, young artists in France were being drawn together in art schools and salons. Friendships were being formed between Monet and Pissaro, Renoir and Sisley, Manet and Cezanne and by 1864 when Neptune had moved into the independent sign of Aries a new art movement was formed- Impressionism.     Things that we might not understand percolate during Neptune in Pisces.  Deep underneath the surface things are forming whether it is a confederacy or a style of painting seeds are being planted and germinating.  


We may not know precisely the things that are being formed but something is going on.  During this Neptune retrograde consider what is percolating in you.   What compass heading are you finding?   You may not launch now but do not underestimate how spirit (a Neptune word)  may be fine tuning information and giving you your own message.   See where you find yourself December 2 when Neptune stations direct.  You may have hints of something important in your psyche, just where Neptune likes it! 

Mercury Station Direct June 22



Important dates 

May 14 – Mercury shadow 

May 29 – Mercury station retrograde (24 Gemini 43)@3:34pm PDT

June 22 – Mercury station direct (16 Gemini 08) @3:00pm PDT 

July 07 – Mercury shadow ends 


The complete utter confusion around facts, communication, mess ups with people, troubled schedules, problematic emails, broken technology, etc, the whole mess should lighten up with Mercury stationing direct on the 22nd.  Unfortunately, it is not totally cleared up because between June 5 and July 6 there are two squares of Mercury with, hold for it--- Neptune.   It is not that we should all wait for the other shoe to drop even after Mercury stations direct,  but we should not be surprised if there is still some confusion. We would be well served to continue to double check everything important to us that needs addressing.   Once we clear July 7 and exit the shadow, we should be good until the next Mercury retrograde in late September.  




Jupiter Station Retrograde June 20, 2021 2 Pisces 11



May 13, Jupiter enters Pisces 

June 20, 8:04am PDT  Jupiter Station Retrograde 2 Pisces 11

July 28  Jupiter re-enters Aquarius 

October 17, 10:39pm PDT station direct 22 Aquarius 20 

Dec 29  Jupiter re-enters Pisces.  


Every year Jupiter is retrograde for about four months.   It’s always thrills and spills when the biggest planet goes back to see what large mess it left in its wake or what it missed.  In this case, Jupiter only got to 2 degrees of Pisces where it got a taste of faith, spirituality and perhaps a little metaphysics  and now it must return to Aquarius with the knowledge that there may actually be something bigger than the human experience at play.  Is it god?  Is it faith?    Jupiter rules higher education and interesting to note that when Jupiter was in its home sign (also ruler of higher education), Sagittarius, the college scandal broke, rife with bribes from mega wealthy and celebrities.  It was a big story.   When Jupiter was in Capricorn, the sign of infrastructure and economy and businesses, the Covid virus spread with a speed and depth not seen in a hundred years impacting every business on earth and challenging infrastructures within governments.    At the end of 2020 Jupiter moved into Aquarius and the vaccine for covid started to bring relief to humanity, an Aquarian word, but when it moved into Pisces a month ago the “haves’ versus the “have nots” with vaccines, became so apparent and painful.  Countries like India and Argentina need help and Jupiter in Pisces speaks to the volume of help they need.  Pisces is unworldly but compassionate.     Jupiter has a strong inner compass focused on the righteous fight, and our humanitarian love is for all of us to see and process.   Love of spouse or family is easy but with Jupiter in Pisces we are moved to love the icky side of our loved ones and more to the point, the stranger.  We will learn more about those other humans on earth as Jupiter moves back into Aquarius July 28.   Jupiter will retrograde all the way back to 22 degrees of Aquarius then on October 17th it stations direct, chugs through the sign and then returns to Pisces December 29 and begins that year journey again.  See what comes up for you between now and October 17th.  Can you appreciate your fellow human?   Can your fellow human appreciate you?   Lots to learn, ah, a Jupiter word.
