It’s the 23rd week of the year which adds up to 5 in numerology. 5 is a number that’s all about victory, action and overcoming adversary. This theme comes to light in the image on the 7 of wands, our card for the week, which shows a man ready to fight at the top of a hill. All his opponents are running at him but he has the advantage and knocks them down, the hill one by one. Interestingly enough, Mercury goes direct on Thursday, ending the most intense Mercury retrograde we’ve dealt with in recent years. A large part of why this Mercury retrograde was so intense was because Mercury went retrograde in Gemini and the aspects formed with Neptune during this period played off each other to make things muddled and confused. In this way, it was like the Universe blindfolded us and literally yanked away things we didn’t need while we were too confused to know what was happening. When Mercury retrograde ends, we’ll see what we’re left with, the lesson of 7, which is letting go of what we don’t need.

Sunday 6/7/15 The Magician
Moon Void of Course at 10:30 AM EST
The card of the day is the Magician, reminding you that even though you’ve lost a lot during this Mercury Retrograde and you’ve felt very confused, as long as you’ve kept your intention focused on your vision, it is yours to have and hold. The Moon goes void of course at 10:30 AM EST so it’s not a good day to take action. Rather, know that the intentions you set are in the works of becoming a reality. The Moon makes a trine with the Sun, shinning down on your power and potential. The Moon also makes a sextile with Unanus and a trine with Mars, brining energy and empowerment. But don’t let these feelings of confidence go to your head. You may be tempted to make unwise decisions with money due to the Moon making an opposite with Jupiter. The numerology of the day is 3, symbolizing things coming together.
Mantra: Whatever I desire is mine.
Monday 6/8/15 The Devil
Moon Enters Pisces at 4:16 AM EST
The Devil is a card of bondage and excess. As Mercury Retrograde draws to a close, you may be tempted to cling to the things that the Universe has taken away from you. Know that you’re just grasping at wisps of what was and look to the future for what could be. The Moon enters Pisces at 4:16 AM, amplifying your emotions. We have the Moon in Pisces, ruled by Neptune teaming up again with Mercury Retrograde and the Moon also makes a square with Gemini (ruled by Mercury) so things may seem really confusing today. It may feel like you’re swimming in deep, dark, murky waters due to the Moon’s square with Mercury that will make it hard to focus. The Moon also makes a square with Saturn, bringing depression along with the confusion. There is a light shining through though. The Sun makes a sextile to Jupiter, encouraging you to shine in the darkness. Be joyful and full of light and you will break the chains that bind you. The numerology of the day is 4, signaling that the root of your confusion is your quest of stability. Just because something is familiar and comfortable does not mean that it makes you stable. As Mercury Retrograde draws to a close, get rid of those final things that bind and chain you.
Mantra: There’s no use in collecting garbage. Kick it to the curb.
Tuesday 6/9/15 Queen of Pentacles
Moon Void of Course at 2:08 PM EST
The card of the day is the Queen of Pentacles. Beautiful, stable, fertile and nurturing, the Queen is the feminine ruler of abundance and prosperity. The Moon enters last quarter and rebirth is just around the corner as the moon cycle is ending. Prepare for labor and although it may be painful, especially in Mercury Retrograde, know that you can’t it with you into the next cycle. If you want to become the Queen of Pentacles, you have to move on. The aspects of the day all have similar attributes that signal to the refusal to let go of things that Mercury Retrograde is forcing you to end: The Moon makes a trine to Pluto and a She squares Mars, as you kick and scream to hold on. The Moon squares the Sun, magnifying your conflicted desires because you know you need to let go but you don’t want to. You could also project your feelings of discontent onto other people as Mars makes a trine with Uranus, making you feel despondent and judgmental. The number of the day is 5, the same number of the week. It symbolizes victory, power and overcoming obstacles. Remember that abundance can be yours.
Mantra: My only limitation is myself.
Wednesday 6/10/15 Justice
Moon enters Aries at 7:14 AM EST
Justice is the card that appears when the situation at hand will be addressed fairly. This does not always mean that there will be a ruling in your favor, especially if you haven’t been honest. However, in this case, justice is not blind and sees all. Mercury makes a trine with Venus, so if you’ve been shady, you won’t be able to hide your lies for much longer. It could bring a sudden flash of inspiration that could lead to your web of lies being destroyed. For those who are honest, the case you’ve presented will be ruled in your favor and your efforts will not go unnoticed. With the Moon in Aries, the enthusiasm you exude will be enough to make you stand out. The Moon makes a sextile with Mercury, heralding good news is at hand. The Moon makes a trine with Venus, bringing pleasant dispositions and friendly attitudes. The sun will also make a sextile with Uranus, allowing you to express yourself and shine brightly. But for the most part, because the number of the day is 6, there will be much harmony and joy.
Mantra: I get what I deserve.
Thursday 6/11/15 5 of Pentacles
Moon Void of Course 7:43 PM EST
Mercury goes direct 6:33 PM
The card of the day is the five of pentacles. With Mercury about to go direct again, this card warns you to avoid lamenting your losses you experienced during Mercury Retrograde. The whole period may have left you feeling impoverished and left out in the cold. But this isolation made you confront difficult questions that you had about your life. But all of this happened to show you that things you do not appreciate will be taken from you. The Moon squares Pluto, tempting you to distort your view of reality. But the Moon’s trine with Jupiter will give you a boost of confidence that will assure you that you are secure in your home and finances and it’s not as bad as it seems. Mercury finally goes direct at 6:33 PM EST. You’ll have a small window where you can take action on plans you’ve been waiting to start between 6:33 PM EST and 7:43 PM EST when the Moon goes void of course. So even though Mercury Retrograde is over, you’ll have to wait for the Moon to enter Taurus tomorrow before you take any serious action. You’ve waited long enough, you can still be passive for one more day. The number of the day is 7, appropriately a number of reassessment and re-evaluation. What did you learn during Mercury Retrograde about yourself? What are you left with when the fog clears?
Mantra: My glass is half full.
Friday 6/12/15 King of Cups
Moon enters Taurus 10:16 AM
Mercury retrograde is over and the Moon enters Taurus at 10:16 AM. Horray! Time to start new projects, especially ones that involve love and beauty. The King of Cups is a peaceful, loving soul; emotionally balanced and full of good advice regarding love and relationships. The Moon is also in Venus ruled Taurus, bringing appreciation for the arts, nature and beauty. Neptune goes retrograde today at 5:09 AM and won’t be direct again until November 18th. Interestingly enough, the water ruled King appears on the day when Neptune goes retrograde, signaling a big boost in intuition and psychic power. In fact, this entire period between now and Noveber 18th will be like this so it’s a good time to begin divination and occult studies. However, be balanced, like the king, or you could overwhelm yourself. If you’re having difficulty expressing yourself because of the Moon will square Venus, try doing something creative just for yourself like painting a picture, writing a story or visiting an art gallery. If the weather is nice, get outside and enjoy nature to get your self-expression flowing. The number of the day is 8, the number of infinity.
Mantra: Learn to swim.
Saturday 6/13/15 4 of Cups
Moon Void of Course 6:06 PM
It’s a day where you may be too focused on your own internal problems to see what’s being offered to you and really, that’s kind of been the theme for the week. Leave the past in the past and move forward! The Moon makes a trine with Neptune, which could cause your imagination to tell yourself some melancholy stories. The Moon also makes a trine with Pluto, bringing about emotional outbursts. The Moon also squares Jupiter, which could tempt you to do some emotional spending. In all, it’s best to stay close to home and reflect on the positive things in life. Reach for the cup being offered to you. It could be a new love interest you haven’t noticed, a job opportunity or something else just waiting for you. The Moon goes Void of Course at 6:06 PM so get off your butt and take action early day so you don’t miss out on opportunities that could bode well for you. The number of the day is 9, signaling endings and new beginnings.
Mantra: I choose to see the success is at hand.
