It’s the 25th week of the year and the card of the week is the Page of Swords. It’s also Litha this week and the year is half over. The Sun now begins his journey away from us and the days will get shorter from here on out. The card of the week is the Page of Swords, encouraging us to take a detached view and look back on the first half of the year. What did you accomplish, what did you fall short on? You still have time to turn things around. Use your head and point yourself in the direction you want to go. There are a lot of repeat cards this week so the lessons we will be asked to learn are lessons that need to be revisted
Mantra: Get smart, get ahead.

Monday 6/19/17 The Emperor
Moon in Aries
Moon Void of Course 12:42 PM PST
Moon Enters Taurus 2:53 PM PST
The Emperor has become one of my favorite cards in the deck. If you get to know the Emperor, you will know stability, strength and wisdom. Be present in all that you say and do today. Be conscious of your actions. And you will come to understand the lessons the Emperor has to teach you. Moon trine Saturn at 5:07 AM PST is a transit of accepting what you must and working with what you’ve got. Moon trine Mercury at 8:20 AM PST is a sign of flowing communication. It should be a good morning for negotiations. Moon conjunct Uranus at 11:05 AM PST is a transit of impulsive acting out. Moon trine Sun at 12:42 PM PST is a tranist of happiness, harmony and flow. If you follow the movement of the stars, should be very happy with the way things are going by the end of the day. Moon is the sign of Aries at the start of the day, the same sign that the Emperor rules. You’ll start the day off with the energy to get whatever you set out to do done and you’ll have the wisdom to relax into the flow of the day by the time the Moon goes void of course at 12:42 PM PST. The Moon then enters, Taurus, the sign of the Emperor’s lover, the Empress. I take this to mean that there are blessings in the stars for true love today. The number of the day is 8, a number of karma.
Mantra: Don’t fight the future.
Tuesday 6/20/17 Moon
Summer Solstice (Litha)
Moon in Taurus
Moon Void of Course 9:25 PM PST
The Moon is a card that appears when things aren’t what they seem. It’s a card of mystery but also chastity and purity, like Diana, the Moon goddess. Follow your heart but only if your intentions are pure in love. It’s Litha, the celebration of the God and Goddess’ relationship. They reign surpreme and the earth is full of the bounty of their love. This is a celebration of cumulation and it has a romantic air due to the transits today. Venus sextile Neptune is a transit of day dreams and fantasies, just like the meaning of the Moon card. Mercury sextile Uranus at 2:30 AM PST is an inspiring transit that expands your imagination and ability to communicate. Moon sextile Mars at 8:21 AM PST is a transit of bravery and leadership. Take control and you’ll find your way. Moon sextile Neptune at 2:25 PM PST is an empathetic, psychic transit. Moon conjunct Venus at 3:24 PM PST is a transit of fun and socialization. Enjoy your afternoon. Soft on the inside, hard on the outside, the Sun enters the sensitive sign of Cancer today where He will stay until July 7/20/17. While the Sun is in Cancer, it is very easy to fall in love but it’s also very easy to piss someone off. Sensitives run high and feels run deep. Moon trine Pluto at 9:25 PM PST will kick those sensitives up even higher just as the Summer Solstice approaches. This is also a sexual transit so find someone to love, even if that person is yourself. The Moon is in the sexy, romantic, indulgent sign of Taurus but she does go void of course at 9:25 PM PST. The number of the day is 9, a number of near completion. The bonds made during this time are the last steps to making this karmic situation that has followed you through lifetimes right.
