- The Moon is in Cancer.
- The Moon is waxing and in its New phase.
- The New Moon occurred yesterday in the sign of Cancer.
Your home life is particularly busy or lively these days with Mars in your solar fourth house, dear Aries, and today, Mars is moving towards a square to Jupiter. If you feel cooped up or if you disagree with someone today, conflicts might quickly escalate. Doing something non-routine may help to keep emotional excitement levels high. Watch also for attaching yourself too tightly to your opinions. Even if you’re right, it may not be worth the effort to prove it. As well, there can be a tendency to want things to materialize right away, and if you’re shooting too high, this can lead to mistakes or unnecessary frustration. Your best bet is to try to channel excess energy into something productive. Shared activities can be particularly appropriate now.
You can be excited to take on new challenges now, dear Taurus, but there can be simply too much on your plate or scheduling problems to work around. It can be difficult to determine how much you can do or take on since your desire and ability are mismatched just for now. You can become quite worked up about a method or idea, with mental energy running particularly high these days and particularly today. Debates can quickly escalate unless you keep your emotional distance, which can be difficult to do with the Moon aligned with Mars in your communications sector. Your mind can race, and there can be lots of exciting ideas, but distractions, restlessness, or duties can keep you from fleshing them out or making them work. Do your best not to rush things — something that’s likely to be much more natural tomorrow. Today, ride instead on enthusiasm.
There can be a feeling of being rushed today, dear Gemini, which may trip you up if you’re not careful. Enthusiasm runs high, and that’s something you should capture, but plans should be rolled out rather than pushed now, even if part of you is pushing to take a gamble or risk. The temptation to borrow from your future is high with Mars in your money sector in challenging aspect to Jupiter in your risk-taking, pleasure-oriented solar fifth house. Borrowing from your future is not only about money, although it certainly covers it, but can also include jumping into new situations without considering consequences and making promises or commitments that your future self may not be able to keep. There is a tendency to burn out quickly if you start running now, so consciously slow yourself down. For some of you, conflicts today may involve possessive behavior in your relationships.
You are riding high on enthusiasm now, dear Cancer, but it’s important to avoid expecting instant results for your efforts. If they do come, they’re unlikely to satisfy. Skipping steps can lead to future problems, so try to slow yourself down while maintaining the optimism and enthusiasm you’re enjoying. The desire to push personal plans can also conflict with family pursuits or interests now. Try not to focus too hard on your ideal scenario because it takes energy away from productivity in the present. Mars is in your sign pushing you to get things done and take on challenges but with Jupiter instigating with Mars right now, you may not find much of anything satisfying, and you might feel you need to take on more things you can actually handle. Watch out for both scenarios, and create your own by releasing tension and channeling excess energy positively.
You may be feeling quite restless and wanting to do something, but uncertain about where to channel your energy today, dear Leo. Something said today might trigger hidden or suppressed anger, and a sudden conflict may result, so watch for this tendency. Strong pulls towards private or alone time are with you now, but daily business, contacts, and projects are a high draw as well, making it difficult to know where to begin. Whether or not the pace around you is hectic, you can feel a little rushed or pressured. This is an excellent day for keeping active, enjoying a new activity, or participating in something that you haven’t done in a while. You’re in a more daring mood emotionally, and sitting on that feeling might only lead to restlessness. However, don’t go so hard that you overextend yourself. After all, you have many cosmic bodies in your privacy sector, including the Moon and Mars which are in alignment today, and it’s important to focus on healing and purging activities.
This can be a loaded, animated day with friends or a busy time for being in demand, dear Virgo. You may like the attention, but you could also feel a little overwhelmed or restless. Impulsiveness and impatience can trip you up if you’re not careful. Capture the enthusiasm of the day, however, and enjoy it, but take the edge off as pressure to push something forward can lead to mistakes or you could end up feeling that you’re in over your head or you’ve taken on too much, and you feel swamped rather than inspired. You might also be spending or indulging too much as you have less concern for your “future self” and care more about the moment. There can be a disagreement with a friend, or you can feel torn between two strong desires. Moderation is the key now, although it can be difficult to practice.
Energetic Mars at the top of your solar chart forms a square with grandiose Jupiter in your sign, dear Libra, and this can point to an active, ambitious time. What you say and do today has more impact than usual, but your delivery may need some attention if you’re getting ahead of yourself. You probably don’t mean to come across as above it all, so be sure that others know where you’re coming from. If you’re acting on underlying tension or discomfort with the status quo, decisions may not be wise today. Consider winding yourself down and focusing on more productive things if you’re getting too worked up about issues that don’t truly matter in the long run. Before jumping into something too quickly, consider the options carefully. However, keep your enthusiasm — it’s golden!
Watch for over-reaching and overcommitting today, dear Scorpio, as enthusiasm can lead to overconfidence, and this may mean you think you can do more than is truly possible. Optimism is beautiful, but misjudgment is possible, so consider and be kind to your “future self” today. Restlessness is a real possibility now, but you might end the day with a sense that you may have too much on your plate or that you’ve planned poorly. Avoid making commitments until you’ve considered all variables. Routines are harder to bear than usual, and if you seek out more tasks to add to your life, you could end up quite overloaded, so aim to get rid of something before taking on something new. Or, vary your routine so that you keep levels of excitement high. With assertive Mars in your sector of beliefs in challenging aspect to Jupiter today, you may overstate your case or get completely worked up about a difference in opinion.
With Mars heating up your intimacy sector and Jupiter warming your sector of friends, dear Sagittarius, you are particularly invested in relationships of all kinds these days. Today, these planets clash, and you might swing from wanting to be close to someone and craving more independence or freedom. If you approach any problems that arise from this conflict as stimulating challenges to overcome, you’re in the right mindset to overcome them and learn from the process. Seek a middle ground, as hard as that may be at the moment. If you go to extremes, you might lose both options, but if you compromise, you’ll have a little less, but you’ll have both. Also, avoid situations that can get you into debt as much as possible today, as the tendency today is to overreach.
Other people in your life can be a little pushy right now, dear Capricorn, or a relationship can be particularly animated or active. Ego issues can emerge in your work, with those in authority, or with significant people in your life with a Mars-Jupiter challenge that seems to pit your passion for a relationship against your ambition. Avoid, if at all possible, promising action on something to a partner or employer just for the time being, as you tend to overestimate your ability to follow through on it. Keep in mind that with so much emphasis on your partnership sector these days, working out or working through relationship issues should be a priority. However, you can be a little impatient today, so keep that in mind before jumping into something you haven’t yet scoped out.
While enthusiasm runs high today, dear Aquarius, succumbing to restlessness or impatience can interfere with the fun of it. You may want to push your way through your daily routine, but others may not be moving as quickly, or you feel overextended. Tune out distractions so that you can focus on one thing at a time. Watch for a tendency to push and prod. There could be a bit of a race going on today when it comes to taking care of your daily duties and responsibilities or dealing with errands and tasks, but “haste makes waste” is a real possibility now. Your needs to get your work done and for non-routine experiences are both real and insistent, but trying to go hard with both can only lead to exhaustion.
Your desire to feel, play, and enjoy life to the hilt is strong these days, dear Pisces, with Mars in your pleasure sector. Today, Mars forms a square to Jupiter, which can point to excess. As well, you may overestimate what you can handle in a relationship, leaving you feeling regretful. Remind yourself that more is not always necessary or better! Watch also for over-the-top promises or expectations, particularly of yourself. They may be well-intentioned but could be made in the heat of the moment. There is a real tendency to take on too much and to make impulsive decisions. However, if you keep restlessness in check and focus on enjoying what you have, or aim to take on a reasonable challenge, you can more thoroughly enjoy the extra dose of enthusiasm the day supplies.

Event: Tr-Tr Nep SSq Pal
Description: Transiting Neptune SemiSquare Transiting Pallas
We may not be in strong touch with reality right now. There is a tendency to illogical, deceptive, or convoluted thinking.
Strong Signs, Elements, Modes
Nurturing, protective, tenacious, emotional sensitive, watery, strong roots. Can be overly protective, unwilling to let go, timid, reclusive.
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.
We may have a difficult time being objective or detached. We may not be especially communicative.
We are more compassionate, emotional, and intuitive than usual, and we may react emotionally to situations, possibly at the expense of logic or practicality.
BALANCE OF MODES
We are ready to take action and to take on challenges, and can become frustrated with stagnant conditions.
We may be open to change but may not have much follow-through.
We can have a hard time adapting to changes and to others’ agendas.
LUNAR PHASE: NEW MOON
Moon 0 to 45 degrees ahead of the Sun.
This is an energetic, impulsive, and subjective period of time. We are looking for new projects and opportunities.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on June 24th:
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 the Moon 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).
