The 2 of Wands appears when it’s time to plan for the future. Moon square Jupiter at 1:15 AM may make others seem egotistical and selfish.

Monday 6/14/16 6 of Pentacles
Sun Enters Cancer
Full Moon in Sagittarius 4:02 AM PST
Moon Void of Course 4:02 AM PST
Moon Enters Capricorn 4:55 AM PST
The 6 of Pentacles is a card of giving and receiving. Today is the Summer Solstice and it is the longest day of the year. Take in all the vitality and energy the Sun has to offer and give it to a good cause. Moon opposition Sun at 4:02 AM PST brings the full Moon and the climax of our intentions we set at New Moon. Looking back, what seeds did you plant and what did you grow? Mercury opposition Saturn at 7:56 AM PST could bring obsessive thinking and cause you to question your identity, especially if your intentions didn’t manifest the way you wanted them to. Mercury square Neptune at 10:11 AM PST could bring confused communication. Resist the urge to hold back what you say. You may avoid conflict for the moment but the issue has not been resolved. Moon opposition Venus at 11:51 AM PST could cause you to act like a spoiled brat so stop nitpicking at others and appreciate what they do for you instead. The Sun enters the nurturing, caring sign of Cancer today where he will stay until 7/22/16. While the Sun is in Cancer, people may appear kinder than usual. But don’t take that kindness for granted because grudges that form during Cancer are rarely resolved. The Moon is in the serious sign of Capricorn for most of the day. There’s a lot of potential for conflict today so take a practical, Capricorn stance and examine the situation with logic and reason instead of letting your emotions take control. The number of the day is 8, a number of karma.
Mantra: What goes around comes around.
Tuesday 6/15/16 Emperor
Moon in Capricorn
The Emperor appears when you need a firm, strong hand to guide you in the right direction. The Mars ruled Emperor reminds us of the importance of boundaries. He teaches us when to be silent and when to speak. He is your inner strength. Moon sextile Neptune at 3:42 AM PST will bring heightened intuition that will help you make wise judgements. If you are asleep during this transit, this energy may appear in your dreams. Moon trine Jupiter at 10:59 AM PST will bring happiness, harmony and flow to your day. Be generous and kind and the actions will be returned to you in due time. Moon conjunct Pluto at 12:16 PM PST will bring intense emotional experiences that could be overwhelming. Try not to obsess over things that you can’t control and have the confidence to be present in the now. The Moon is in the practical sign of Capricorn, teaching us that wisdom comes from trusting in yourself. The number of the day is 9, a number of endings becoming beginnings.
Mantra: I stand firmly in my own power.
Wednesday 6/16/16 Devil
Moon in Capricorn
Moon Void of Course
Moon Enters Aquarius 1:08 PM PST
The Devil appears when we are tempted to indulge in the pleasures of the senses. Sexual appetites are heightened, money is spent frivolously and people overeat under the influence of this card. But this card warns that the things that we love can make us prisoners. Moon sextile Mars at 1:03 AM PST brings bravery, leadership and courage to your early morning hours. If you’re asleep during this transit, these themes may appear in your dreams. Don’t let yourself be too easily offended during Moon square Uranus at 1:57 AM PST. This transit sometimes causes people want to cause problems for excitement’s sake. Mercury square Jupiter at 3:59 PM PST will give you the right amount of optimism to step back and see the big picture. Any epifany’s now will be met with the confidence needed to make necessary changes. The Moon is void of course in the strict teacher of Capricorn until it enters the revolutionary sign of Aquarius at 1:08 PM PST, allowing you to break free from whatever chains that bind you. The number of the day is 1, a number of new beginnings.
Mantra: Freedom is a choice.
Thursday 6/17/16 9 of Wands
Moon in Aquarius
The 9 of Wands appears when everything just seems like too much. You may feel tired, but that’s only because you’ve had to fight the same battles over and over again. Sometimes it may feel like you can never win, but know that nothing lasts forever. Moon sextile Saturn at 10:28 AM PST will find you in a reflective mood. But try not to take yourself too seriously. Moon trine Mercury at 10:48 PM PST will bring flowing conversation and creativity. The Moon is in the revolutionary sign of Aquarius, reminding you that patterns can be broken and habits overcome. The number of the day is 2, a number of balance.
Mantra: Old habits die hard.
Friday 6/18/16 9 of Pentacles
Moon in Aquarius
Moon Void of Course 8:48 AM PST
Moon Enters Pisces 7:30 PM PST
The 9 of Pentacles is a card of freedom and release. When the card appears, know that you are surrounded by abundance. Personally, this card often appears when I receive a message I’ve been waiting for. Moon square Mars at 7:26 AM PST could bring pugnacious, irritable feelings that could turn violent if not kept under control. If you feel like you’re about to explode, take a minute to be present and let the anger pass. Moon sextile Uranus at 8:48 AM PST will leave you feeling adventurous and ready to try something new. The Moon is void of course between 8:48 AM PST and 7:30 PM PST. Then She will enter the sign of Pisces. When the Moon is in Pisces, it’s best to go with the flow and resist swimming upstream. The number of the day is 3, a number of things coming together.
Mantra: I choose to fulfill my needs.
Saturday 6/25/16 High Priestess
Moon in Pisces
The High Priestess is one of the most elusive cards in the Tarot deck, not because she doesn’t give you the answer you want to hear but because she challenges you to find the truth that lies within yourself. Moon trine Sun at 3:07 AM PST brings happiness, harmony and flow to your early morning hours. Moon trine Venus at 12:58 PM PST will enhance the lingering good feelings from earlier with love and beauty. Moon square Saturn at 3:54 PM PST may bring some negative feelings due to the good energy from early fading. But nothing is actually wrong, it’s just that the intensity of the feelings earlier lasted for a while and you got used to the euphoria. The Moon is in the mysterious sign of Pisces, challenging you to dive deep into the depths of your soul and embrace what makes you happy. The number of the day is 4, reminding you that stability is a result of the firm foundation that you build for yourself.
