Desires can be misleading today, dear Aries. Aim to be more self-aware today rather than chase a sudden impulse or desire. The tendency towards impatience is very strong right now. There can be a series of minor problems that result from timing that is off, and although they’re small inconveniences, they can add up. Avoid overloading your schedule today. You might also want to avoid bringing up tricky topics, as any debates started today can easily escalate into arguments. Avoid letting your own insecurities cloud your vision of someone else. Consider that you may not be seeing people and possibly even things for their true value.
People may seem to be blocking you today, dear Taurus, whether it’s due to their mood swings or a sense that they’re disapproving. There is strong potential for small matters to escalate into full-blown dramas, as people around you can be especially sensitive. If you’re looking for straightforward answers, you’re unlikely to get them right now, but this is not necessarily because people are withholding, and more likely because we have a difficult time being in touch with what it is we truly want today. Timing can be off in small ways, so consider taking care of important business another day. Decision making about purchases and relationships should probably wait as well.
Venus in your sign tends to put you in a good light, dear Gemini. However, today you could find that there are misunderstandings or your timing is off. Some awkwardness in social situations is possible as a result. Expressing your desires or frustrations can come across the wrong way at the moment. Slight tweaks and adjustments may be necessary if you’re looking to get something you want. Avoid pushing things. Professional plans may not work out smoothly just for now, and for some, there can be rumors circulating that frustrate you. Avoid the temptation to over-explain and let your actions do the most talking. Later today, there can be some seriousness on a mental level, but your openness to making improvements can take you places.
You are more sensitive to rhythms that are off, poor timing, and subtle changes, dear Cancer, perhaps reading a little too much into what others are saying or presumably thinking. With a tendency to become aggravated by little things today, you’ll want to avoid taking it out indirectly on the innocent! It may be difficult to pinpoint the reason for discontent. Old issues that you thought you had buried might emerge and occupy your mind. There can be a feeling of being out of sync, and it can be hard to go after what you want either because you’re not certain about your desires or because circumstances seem to prevent a clear-cut and direct path to your goals. Indecision is perhaps a good thing because decisions made now tend to be half-baked. Part of you wants to get involved, and another part doesn’t. Wait things out if you can.
Relationships today may be a little tricky today, dear Leo, and it’s a toss-up whether they need extra attention in order to keep them running smoothly, or giving people space and avoiding overthinking problems. Friendly gestures may be taken the wrong way, something that’s said can be misinterpreted, and other such minor social hiccups. Try not to take these things to heart. While listening to your “inner voice” is generally a good idea, if it’s laden with guilt, fear, or worry, then it’s only going to stir up trouble. The rumor mill is busy right now, and it would be wise not to get caught up in the commotion. As the day advances, however, you’re in a great position to move forward and shine as you do so.
People tend to require more care and sensitivity today, dear Virgo, and there is a strong inclination for misunderstandings and resulting hurt feelings. You have a lot of energy for anything to do with learning and the mind, and the best way to use this positively is to throw yourself into a pet project. However, there can be some irritability as things may not go as planned and you might have some troubles getting others on board or understanding your point of view and plans. If you do put your foot in your mouth, simply take it out without much further ado. Keep apologies short, if necessary. Today’s Neptune station can cast a veil over things, and particularly on a partnership as well as others’ motives.
Tensions, both internal and with others, are likely today, dear Libra. Watch for a sudden desire to one-up someone. As well, be careful with how you word your opinions, which might feel like an attack on someone’s values, even if it’s not what you intend. Tensions over money can also surface today if you haven’t been on top of your affairs recently. There can be a strong desire to get out and about but an equally compelling need to stick to what you know today. There can be misunderstandings. Avoid explaining yourself to people who are being narrow-minded but take the time to make things right with those who deserve your attention. Dissatisfaction might only resolve given a little time. The Moon in your sign harmonizes with Saturn and Vesta later today, and this can point to nice release from tension through work, productivity, organization, and attention to your responsibilities.
People tend to be very indirect in their approach to getting what they want today, dear Scorpio, and it can be difficult for you to find natural or easy outlets for your desires as well. A sense that you might stir the pot too much if you ask for something directly is with you. People can easily feel slighted, and maybe it’s better to avoid drama right now, which can very easily escalate today. While you may be drawing up plans now, you may lose interest in them later. It may be best to take more time to understand what it is you truly want. Trying to explain your way out of something is likely to be a waste of time today. Rhythms in relationships can be off temporarily, but don’t let this define your next move. The Moon is in your privacy sector all day, signalling a need for more rest and time for reflection than usual.
It can be difficult to read or understand people around you today, dear Sagittarius, and they are unlikely to “get” what you want either, unless you spell it out for them. However, you’re unlikely to do so at the moment. Wants and needs seem to be at cross-purposes to one another. Focusing on the past or responding habitually in ways that didn’t bring you success in the past are both to be avoided, but they are also strong tendencies now. Save very important discussions for a time when people are less confused and when you’re clearer as well. Some introspection now can do wonders to help you to center yourself and to get in touch with your heart’s desire as the appropriate channels for releasing energy may not be available to you temporarily.
It can be difficult to feel in sync today, dear Capricorn, both on the inside as desires seem to conflict with one another, and externally with others. This makes it hard to make satisfying decisions or plans without some feeling that you may be missing out elsewhere. Others’ responses can be confusing. You might also be wrestling with issues of trust, but do consider that some of these feelings could be stemming from insecurities. Wait it out, as it’s temporary. There can be some feelings of resentment stirred today if you feel taken for granted. Do your share of the work, and avoid worrying about what others are or aren’t doing.
Inner conflicts can stimulate restlessness today, dear Aquarius, as it can be difficult to make solid decisions that you can completely get behind. As well, you may not feel that you’re in sync with others on key issues today. People around you can be blowing hot and cold. Try not to take this personally, as it’s likely they are just as undecided as you are. Tensions in your career or regarding your duties are minor, but they can dampen your enthusiasm nevertheless. There is a tendency today to either neglect to see the value of valuable people and things, or to over-value something that doesn’t deserve the attention – watch for this! While it’s not the best time for presenting ideas or going forward with a plan, you can have great results with personal interests and projects, and a partner is likely to see past the social fumbling of the day.
Frustrated plans can interfere with your mood today, dear Pisces, but only if you allow this to happen. Avoid pushing your agenda and wait for a more pleasant day when others tend to want to cooperate for important talks or interviews. The problem now is that you may be meeting with people who either won’t budge on an issue, or who are wavering, lacking the confidence or presence of mind to make a firm decision. There can be an inner conflict between a desire to get out and about and a need to stick with familiar people and situations. Avoid flip decisions and try to stay in the moment.

Agile, versatile, inquisitive, flowing, conversational, airy, many ideas. Can be volatile, superficial, changeable, restless and inconsistent.
Even-handed, harmonious, artistic, diplomatic, balancing, strong sense of fairness. Can be over- compromising, appeasing, judgmental.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
We are not very goal-oriented right now, or motivation to pursue our goals may be waning/lacking. Changes feel overwhelming. Enthusiasm may be low, we argue less, and we think more than we take action.
There can be a lack of desire, interest, or skills regarding practical affairs. We may not be very much in touch with reality. Difficulties concentrating, grounding ourselves.
We tend to favor rational, objective thought over emotions, impulses, and feelings at this time. We are more intellectual, fair-minded, and logical in our approach, Ideas flow easily and quickly, we are more communicative and guided by principles, and also somewhat dispassionate or impersonal.
BALANCE OF MODES
We may be open to change but may not have much follow-through.
We are flexible, adaptable, willing, open to change, and possibly flighty or nervous.
LUNAR PHASE: FIRST QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 135 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are motivated to take action, perhaps due to a clash, conflict, or stress, as we are more aware of problems and differences now. Plans are beginning to take off or turn a corner. We should watch for pushing too hard.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on June 13th:
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 involving inner planets 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 lifetime).
