With a New Moon occurring at the bottom of your solar chart tomorrow night, dear Aries, it’s important to avoid big launches and decision making today, as these endeavors have very little chance of sticking. If you need to put something behind you or clear things out to prepare for a fresh start, this is absolutely the time for it! Conserve your energy as much as possible, or invest energy in preparations or simply the moment. Tomorrow’s New Moon will provide you with reliable energy for dealing with and taking charge of domestic matters. You can be quite excited to approach your family or home life in new and improved ways. There can be a small hurdle to deal with today related to a very familiar tug of war between personal and professional responsibilities, but this is nothing you can’t handle.
Things seem to wind down under a Balsamic Moon such as the one today, dear Taurus, and this suits you well. Don’t strain yourself if you can’t accurately imagine your next move or if there is a general lack of clarity in your interactions now. Sometimes, letting go of the need to know is the best thing you can do for yourself. The New Moon tomorrow night is bound to stimulate new interests, lines of thoughts, ideas, and learning experiences in the weeks to come, but today, don’t push yourself, others, or your thoughts. New launches that you undertake today are unlikely to stick anyhow. However, it’s an excellent time for letting go of grudges and tying up loose ends, particularly related to financial matters or a business.
The Moon in its Balsamic phase today, dear Gemini, making it an excellent time for letting go of those things you no longer need–and these can be emotional, such as an attitude or attachment, or material. We more naturally let go than hold on right now, so take advantage. A New Moon will occur tomorrow night, and it’s time to think of ways to take charge of your financial life, as the New Moon will provide you with the energy to do so. However, there can be some tension related to ownership or power dynamics matters in a relationship today, and this is better off handled promptly than carrying it forward into the new cycle ahead.
Tensions related to power dynamics or control, if they exist in a close relationship, are likely to come to a head today or tomorrow, dear Cancer. Be aware of this if it’s building, but also keep in mind that today and tomorrow are important for resting, relaxing, and tying up loose ends. While the Sun and Mercury have just entered your sign, the lunar cycle is not quite there — it’s wrapping up, and you can benefit from winding down and gathering your energy. The Moon spends today and much of tomorrow in your privacy sector, pointing to the need to keep a low profile, regenerate, and renew yourself rather than pushing forward. Domestic activities can be particularly satisfying today.
While the Sun and Mercury have just moved into your privacy sector, dear Leo, the Moon is in your social sector today and much of tomorrow, stimulating the need to be around others. The Moon is Balsamic, as a New Moon will occur tomorrow night, and this suggests a need to wind down, relax, and reflect on recent events rather than begin brand new ventures. There can be some tension experienced surrounding work and service issues today, however, that relate to power and control disagreements. Agreeing with others on methods and systems of doing things can be difficult right now with people you share work or chores with, but friends are likely to come through now.
On this day before a New Moon, dear Virgo, your heart is still with your work and performance, but you’re preparing for a more sociable, personal period. If there have been tensions brewing over matters of power, control, or respect in relationships with friends, lovers, or offspring, they’re likely to emerge now. Aim for release or purging on these levels. In fact, the Moon is Balsamic today, and it’s best to wrap things up and let the negative go so that you can start fresh after the New Moon tomorrow night. You could be working hard on preparations or some form of downsizing now which can benefit you greatly with new energy and beginnings, as well as a sense of renewal, on the horizon.
Emotionally, you may be focused on life’s adventures and experiences, dear Libra, even with a period of increased visibility and responsibility right around the corner. It would be wise to enjoy yourself but also to aim to wind down, tie up loose ends, conserve energy, or partake in small preparations for the new beginnings promised by tomorrow night’s New Moon. There can be some tension experienced today related to power dynamics in your relationships with family or loved ones, likely to do with your investment in your work or worldly goals. Aim to release and then let go of negative energy if it’s been building along these lines. This way, you’ll enter the new cycle with less baggage and a clearer focus on priorities.
If you’ve been giving others the power to make you unhappy, dear Scorpio, then you’re more likely to want to correct this today, when reflection is favored over the taking of decisive action. You might consider whether emotional or power-related scorekeeping has kept you from being all that you can be. The Moon is Balsamic with a New Moon occurring tomorrow night in your adventure and spirit sector. Don’t jump to action just yet, as this is a better time for reflecting, letting go of those things that can’t (or shouldn’t) be controlled, and giving yourself up to the idea that you don’t know everything about a situation, and that’s perfectly fine for now! Tomorrow’s New Moon will point you in new directions, so rest up today.
An emotional dilemma that seemed too difficult to solve in the past might now suddenly appear to have an easy solution, dear Sagittarius. You’re looking at partnerships in a different light these days, and now you’re getting ready to dig a little deeper. Alternatively, this can be about your projects as you’re beginning to see where you want to invest your energies and where you might be wasting your time. The Moon is in its Balsamic phase today as we prepare for the New Moon occurring tomorrow night. The dynamic energy of the New Moon happening in your intimacy sector is sure to shift your major focus, but for now, during the transition, it’s better to reflect than take action. With the dark Moon, you may not be seeing your next move for the time being, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Focus on releasing, letting go, and winding down today for best results.
Today is excellent for letting go of grudges, releasing tension, and finishing up the details of a plan or project, dear Capricorn. Complex problems have a way of seeming far less convoluted, and you might put something frustrating behind you now. However, relationships can be a little tense if there have been problems brewing related to power and control. With a Balsamic Moon today, you need to take a break from demanding situations and competitive energies. Conserving your energy makes the most sense now. Take a walk, think about recent events, and let your mind wander if you have the chance. Reflecting on the latest developments in your work or with your health is especially appropriate now as you wind down after a busy details-focused period and embark on a more sociable calling. A New Moon will occur tomorrow night, and it’s likely to bring new information and possibly a new focus into your life. There can be a new direction in the works related to a relationship, whether friend or foe!
The Moon spends the day in your playful solar fifth house, dear Aquarius, and this can be particularly helpful with today’s Balsamic Moon and the need to wind down and reflect. This way, you won’t as easily take on new projects which are not advised now. It’s a good day for preparations or refinements and endings rather than new beginnings. If you’ve been feeling especially put upon recently, this problem might reach a head today and tomorrow. Your best bet is to clear the air and put the matter behind you rather than keep things to yourself and suffer through it. This is, in fact, a great day for putting things to rest. Aim to regret nothing going into the new cycle beginning tomorrow night when a New Moon occurs, motivating you to start fresh with work, habits, and health.
If you’ve been having problems with control or power dynamics in your social life recently, dear Pisces, you’re likely to feel the tension rather strongly now. You’ll be in the best shape if you aim to confront problems so that you can put them behind you with a Balsamic Moon today that favors endings, winding down, letting go, and releasing rather than beginning or building anew. The New Moon occurring tomorrow night is a particularly pleasant one for you, and it’s set to bring fresh energy into your romantic or social life and creative world. Today, avoid sweeping decisions, launching new projects, or starting a relationship that you want to last. Signs point to the need to slow down, take stock, and reflect.

Date & Time: Jun 22 2017 4:27 pm
Event: Tr-Tr Mon SSq Pal
Description: Transiting Moon SemiSquare Transiting Pallas
We may be concerned about what others are thinking of us now and can be sensitive to negativity and criticism, or what we perceive as such. We might not understand one another, and can be at odds with one another on a mental or intellectual level. Someone’s belief or idea can make us feel insecure or out of sorts, or otherwise rub us the wrong way.
Date & Time: Jun 22 2017 5:18 pm
Event: Tr-Tr Mon Sqr Nep
Description: Transiting Moon Square Transiting Neptune
There can be confusion, misunderstanding, or some level of chaos and uncertainty. Avoid money transactions or new business initiatives – it can be difficult to think clearly. There may be deception or self-deception to deal with. We might have an emotional urge to escape. Feeling out of sorts and don’t know why? Relax and listen to some inspirational music. Honor your need to feed your more refined or spiritual side, and the difficult feelings will soon fade away.
Strong Signs, Elements, Modes
Agile, versatile, inquisitive, flowing, conversational, airy, many ideas. Can be volatile, superficial, changeable, restless and inconsistent.
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 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.
LUNAR PHASE: BALSAMIC
Moon less than 45 degrees behind the Sun.
Time to tie up loose ends, review, reflect, let go, and edit.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on June 22nd:
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).
