A Mars-Jupiter sextile points to opportunity, enthusiasm (especially about ideas), and enterprise, and a Sun-Pluto quincunx suggests a conundrum or lingering worry. We are also moving towards a Venus-Saturn trine which is influencing the latter part of today, which can bring us down to earth in a pleasant way.
Venus enters Leo today and will transit Leo until July 18th. Venus will return to Leo again from July 31-October 8. This is due to its upcoming retrograde – Venus will enter Virgo on July 18th, not even reach the one degree mark of the sign before it turns retrograde on July 25th, and then will re-enter Leo on July 31st. Venus turns direct at just under the mid-degree of Leo on September 6th, and will complete its transit of Leo on October 8th.
- The Moon is in Capricorn all day (until Saturday, June 6th, at 1:01 AM).
- The Moon is void from 11:32 AM forward (until tomorrow at 1:01 AM).
- The Moon is waning and in its Full Moon phase.
- Venus enters Leo today (Venus transits Leo from June 5-July 18, and then from July 31-October 8).
- Mercury is retrograde. (Mercury is retrograde from May 18 to June 11 in the sign of Gemini).
Times are EDT
You could be feeling slightly off professionally, dear Aries, if you’re presented with choices and are not sure of your next step. There can be a somewhat obsessive quality to certain aspects of the day. However, you are also feeling considerably more confident about projects, creative efforts, hobbies, or romantic pursuits now. With Venus entering the sector of your chart that rules these things, you’re in a great position to benefit from these things for several weeks. Do something creative, physical, or otherwise tension-relieving. Concerns about your job can be strong on your mind today, but other areas of life, or a special experience today, are invigorating, motivating you to think in especially inventive ways and pointing you in the direction of improvement.
There can be something on your mind today, dear Taurus, involving a moral dilemma, concern (possibly financial), or uncertainty about your next step. However, there are also some wonderful opportunities now that can pull you out of a funk. You may need to make a small adjustment to get back on track. Keep an open mind. There can be great prospects involving your family or home life now, although this can be true for many weeks going forward in a general sense with Venus entering your home and family sector, encouraging more warmth and peace on the home front. It can be a time for investing in your comfort, home, and safety.
You can be quite pleasantly busy much of the day, dear Gemini, although there can be subtle problems revolving around resentments or jealousies that seem to emerge out of nowhere. If you examine the frustrations that arise, you may be able to gain some insight into what makes you feel insecure, which is the first step towards making changes. Some of you could experience a small betrayal, but for many, it’s really a trigger of an unresolved, pre-existing issue. Otherwise, you might discover wonderful opportunities now that brighten your day and fuel your ambition or enthusiasm, likely related to communications projects, learning, or transportation. Problems that previously seemed too difficult to solve now appear only as small obstacles. It’s a good day for personal appeal – you are coming across as amiably direct and confident.
Any kind of guilt or fears about past matters should be addressed these days, dear Cancer, so that they don’t undermine your confidence and decisions. Watch today for engaging in emotional games with a partner or significant someone. There can be a feeling now that you have to go around an issue instead of coming right out with it. A way to manage handle this is to take more time to get in touch with what you’re feeling. Another theme today involves a sense that you’re really moving forward on other matters, particularly financial ones. This is likely to be the case for many weeks ahead as well, with Venus beginning its transit of your finances sector today. Today, allow forgiveness and grace to reign over insecurities. Be proactive with practical matters. Towards the end of the day, you can feel clearer about work and money matters.
While there may be a physical complaint or work concern that nags at you today, dear Leo, there are also nice opportunities that should present themselves. You could feel overlooked or even slighted, but this is a small hurdle in an otherwise empowering time. New ideas and alternative methods can be inspiring now. You may feel invigorated by a challenge, and excited about a new or renewed project. Problem solving is excellent for some things today, even if a larger problem is hanging heavy. Venus enters your sign today, where it will transit for many weeks, and soon after harmonizes with Saturn, making this a good time to apply yourself to creative work. You might also benefit from others’ advice now, and more thoroughly enjoy the work you’re doing.
You may be managing insecurities today, dear Virgo, but this is not a setback – in fact, it’s a necessary process. Deal with fears of not meeting your responsibilities or living up to others’ standards. This will help you to better take advantage of the opportunities of the day, which can be plenty. Today, there may be a part of you that enjoys a challenge, or intuitively understands that challenges are sometimes necessary in order to pull you out of ruts. There can be a sense that you can take on a lot on a professional level, or breakthrough thinking that stimulates your ambition and enthusiasm. Organizing or other “work” related to home and family can actually be comforting and enjoyable later today.
You might be hungry for more knowledge, experience, or variety in your life these days, dear Libra, but you may not always have the time and energy to feed these needs. Concerns or difficult decisions revolving around your personal or home life can weigh you down a little today, but you are also bound to stumble upon some nice opportunities to enjoy yourself. Certain news or experiences can be inspiring and motivating. Others seem to be more helpful with you and willing to get things done. Shared activities can be especially fun or productive. There can be special enjoyment of reading, learning, or studying now as well. People are seeing you as reliable and valuable, even if you are dealing with some insecurities on the inside today.
With the Sun, Mercury, and Mars currently transiting your solar eighth house, dear Scorpio, you tend to be observing more than participating, and this can be advantageous to you if you use this time for building life strategies and learning more about your own motivations and those of others. However, when the Sun forms difficult aspects, as it does today, you could be analyzing things too much. Try to give your mind a break from over-thinking. It’s time for setting things straight or for correcting errors. You get a lot of help today from supportive aspects. There can be renewed energy for research and projects. As well, good energy is with you for setting things right with money. You are projecting your value and worth in favorable ways to those in authority or to associates. This can be a very nice day for personal appeal and matters of the heart, if you allow yourself to enjoy the good vibes.
The day is filled with possibilities and opportunities, dear Sagittarius, but there is a little hurdle to get over as well. There could be mind games, worry about money or resources, or news that you have to put more resources into something that you thought was complete. Charm levels are strong however, especially if you let things flow naturally and let go of problems and errors. Focusing on positive, productive tasks helps you take advantage of the day’s energies that support new thinking, creative enterprise, and collaboration. You are courageous and forthright. Love and partnership benefits from more patience and acceptance. People are drawn to you now, and appreciate your realism.
You could have a difficult time coming across as approachable today, dear Capricorn, or you may be feeling under the weather with Pluto in your sign in awkward angle to the Sun in your work and health sector. You may be looking too earnestly for an answer and could touch a nerve with someone as a result. Alternatives can be introduced now that lead you to rethink old problems and concerns. There may be a need to accommodate or make adjustments for others. However, there is very flowing energy associated with the day, some of which involves your ruler, Saturn, and lovely Venus. You can feel strongly motivated and have much enthusiasm for research or projects now. People are intrigued with you and drawn to you. Someone might entrust you with a secret or show their trust in other ways.
There are definite opportunities to the day, dear Aquarius, but also a tendency to hold yourself back due to fear of change. Watch for compulsive behavior. Going over the same issues repeatedly won’t necessarily solve problems – you need to approach them differently, and it’s time to make adjustments. Let go of suspicion and negative thinking, and approach the day with energy, verve, and power. You are especially attractive now, drawing others’ attention with your actions. Venus moves into your partnership zone, where she will transit for many weeks, and today, moves into harmony with stable Saturn. You could be touched by a theme of faithfulness in love and friendship. Showing affection through practical support is beneficial now.
Circumstances are such that adjustments and refinements to your plans need to be made, dear Pisces. It’s a time for laying something to rest or altering a goal/approach. There may be mind or power games emerging that are frustrating. Look for underlying motives and try to remain detached. You don’t have to solve everyone’s problems. However, there is strong energy for family affairs and putting energy into home or domestic activities. Work matters can thrive, and you could be feeling especially interested in tackling ambitious projects or working on health goals. There can be pleasure derived from doing a job well, or a sense of accomplishment after taking care of important details.

LUNAR PHASE: FULL MOON
Moon 180 to 135 degrees behind the Sun.
We are concerned mainly with the nature of relationships and are made aware of recent imbalances. Something can come to fruition. Our concern is not limited to personal relationships, but relationships of all kinds. Our cards are on the table.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on June 5th:
Note that when an aspect is applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).
