Following the Moon: June 24, 2021GGAMoon

With Venus at the helm of the New Moon chart for June 10 (click here to see the article and the chart) we’ve cruised through the past two weeks on a cloud of positive feelings. COVID restrictions across the country are relaxing and people are going around with their whole face hanging out, just like in the old days (2019). Of course, there are still worries about variants of the virus and a possible resurgence of infections but, for the most part, Venus in the First House of that chart has led us to a brighter day.

Unfortunately, Venus wasn’t the only planet active in the June 10 chart. Neptune was also prominent and it brought us some variants of the conspiracy theory that’s gathered around the insurrection of Jan. 6. (Now the claim is that it was an FBI operation.) Also, the interminable “audit” that is going on in Arizona is being touted as the wedge that will overturn the November election and put Donald Trump back in the White House by August.

Along with all the Neptunian pipe dreams we had had the culmination of the Saturn to Uranus square during this lunation. Thankfully, even though the drumbeat of violence, rage and crime has gotten noticeably louder, this aspect did not coincide with a horrendous event,. I think we dodged a bullet on that one. The aspect will be exact again near the end of Dec.

The Full Moon chart for June 24 (click on Full Moon to see the chart) is different from the previous two or three lunation charts in that Neptune is not a major factor. We should get some clarity out of this chart. Of course, that doesn’t mean that everyone is going to like what comes through loud and clear.

The Sun and Moon are in the Ninth/Third House axis. This represents the relationship between “big” ideas and public policy and the everyday world of the individual citizen. In other words, politics is going to play a major role. And this isn’t just a distant, theoretical political debate. The issues that are going to be raised will impact the lives of real people in a real way.

I like the fact that Jupiter is making positive connection to both the Sun and Moon in this chart. This indicates that the impact we’re talking about will be beneficial. Republicans and Democrats are still trying to hash out a compromise on the infrastructure bill that Biden proposed months ago. These aspects could bring us some good news on that front.

The square between Saturn and Uranus is still going on, even though it is currently separating. In this Full Chart, Mars has moved into an opposition with Saturn and a square to Uranus. This could be a very explosive configuration. I’m particular concerned about the period around the Fourth of July when Mars will complete its aspects to Saturn and Uranus. Some sort of violent or destructive outburst seems likely.

Venus is prominently placed in this chart, as it was in the last New Moon chart, but this time its influence may not be so positive. In the Full Moon chart Venus is conjunct the Midheaven and opposed to Pluto. This might represent a serious hiccup in the country’s return to normal after the pandemic. It could also describe a difficult period for people in leadership positions (since Venus in in the Tenth House). Blockages, frustration or even health concerns could become a major factor. We might think of this as applying to President Biden, but it could just as easily refer to any person in high office.
