The Week Ahead 21-27 June
Updated: Jun 25
Welcome Summer! Welcome Cancer Season!
Here’s a quick overview of the week ahead:
Today Venus in Cancer is trine Neptune in Pisces.
22 June: Mercury stations direct.
23 June: Sun trine Jupiter.
24 June: Venus- Pluto opposition. Full Moon in Capricorn.
25 June: Neptune stations retrograde.
27 June: Venus ingress into Leo.
If you follow me on social media I will elaborate more on each of the above aspects as they happen but here is brief overview of what we can expect.
Today’s Venus trine Neptune speaks of enchantment. It asks us to give in to the powerful pull of fantasy, emotion, magick and memory (specifically memories of our childhood). This is an aspect that asks us to fall in love with life itself. It’s easy to get bogged down by everyday responsibilities, to lose sight of our blessings and to despair about problems that feel insurmountable...this aspect encourages us to cultivate our love of life in dancing, music, gardening, painting etc.
Mercury stations direct on the 22nd and while we should notice an immediate improvement in work related matters or anything to do with official paperwork, Mercury will only leave their post-retrograde shadow on July 7th. If you are wondering if you should buy a new car now for example I recommend waiting until the week of July 7th if you can. Neptune’s station will bring much needed clarity regarding a person or situation. Chances are you were either being deceived during this retrograde or you deceived yourself into thinking a person was right for you or a situation was going to improve. Trust your gut.
On June 24th, the Moon is Full in pragmatic Capricorn. The Moon struggles in Capricorn as Capricorn is the sign opposite Cancer, the sign of her rulership. The Moon will also find herself between Mars and Saturn - in what is referred to as a malefic enclosure. Full Moons bring clarity and closure. There’s a good chance you are near completion of a project that commenced in January around the time of the New Moon in Capricorn or you have come to the end of a cycle. Capricorn is also a sign associated with the Collective and esoterically, with the soul and ancestral heritage. I wouldn’t be surprised if more shocking news comes to light this week regarding mass grave sites at residential schools etc. It’s also worth mentioning that the Moon will be conjunct the centaur, Phollus. Phollus is said to be associated with selflessness, awakening and release.
What must be released this week?
What act of selflessness is asked of you now that will help those you care about at this time?

On June 27th, Venus enters Leo and we will seek showy, public acts of adoration. This is an excellent time to make new friends and to work on creative projects.
