Aquarius Moon ~ 19–22 June 2019

The Moon travels into Aquarius and the 2nd House of possessions, property, money, and self-worth at 7:01 PM PDT on 19 June 2019 until it enters Pisces at 7:02 AM PDT on the 22nd. Intellect is favored over emotions over the next lunar period and may prove to be the stabilizing force should issues over material security arise, particularly if we derive emotional security from possessions. Common sense may need to prevail here if finances aren’t there for any emotional shopping we might feel compelled to do. The chart is below:

Chart Information

  • Mode/Quality — Cardinal (6), Fixed (4), Mutable (16); our focus may be off and we might procrastinate over the next few days. Flexibility is required.
  • Elements — Fire (7), Earth (6), Air (8), Water (5); elements are in relative balance with Water (emotions) in a weakened state reinforcing the need for flexibility.
  • Rays — the 5th Ray of Concrete Knowledge/Science and the 6th Ray of Devotion/Idealism provide the strongest Ray influences creating the space for higher knowledge and idealism.
  • Signs — Sister signs Gemini and Sagittarius provide the strongest sign influences suggesting a lack of restraint may occur.
  • Houses — 1st (identity), 2nd (resources, self-worth), 7th (partnerships), and 8th (support from others) Houses provide the strongest influence
  • Quadrants/Hemispheres — 1st (independent/organized) and 3rd (relationships based on societal involvement) quadrants; Hemispheres are in balance

Aspect Influences

Self-expression may be affected as we attempt to balance will with emotions. Decisions may be difficult as well and self-doubt may result. Because of a need to either stand apart or for attention, we may be given to expressions of drama and mundane activities may take a back seat to something more immediately satisfying.

Vesta, Juno, and Ceres are each in aspect with the Moon and we may seek comfort and nurture from the female friends and family in our lives. Ritual and self-care activities including meditation and visualization may assist us in balancing will with emotions over this lunar period. Although we may experience some limitation over the next few days, if we remain flexible, we should do fine.

Magickal Workings

Representing the power To Know, Wednesday’s workings may involve communication and revelation. The direction is East, the Element is Air, and the energy is masculine or projective. Agate, emerald, and fluorite are useful on the altar as are purple and yellow candles. Herb magick can be used and herbs such as marjoram or lavender may be burned in a cauldron allowing their essence to rise to the collective consciousness.

Thursday’s workings can take an inner focus, considering Jupiter’s continued retrograde, surrounding our goals and desires. Again, the power To Know corresponds with this Jovian planet’s influence, sharing other correspondences with Wednesday’s workings. Blue, however, is Thursday’s color with sapphire and lapis lazuli options for crystals on the altar. Basil or mint might also be used to either burn in a cauldron or sprinkle or rolled on oiled candles to add an extra measure of herb magick to the working.

Friday is the Summer Solstice in the Earth’s northern hemisphere, the time when “the Sun reaches both its highest and northernmost points in the sky.” ( Farmers Almanac). It also the longest day of the year and it signals the beginning of Summer. Plan a barbeque or simply sit out with someone special, embrace some Venus energy, and look at the stars. Barring clouds, the Moon should still be shining brightly and it’s nice to observe the change between Spring and Summer.

Final Thoughts

Aquarians can have a revolutionary approach to life. They’re eccentric and unique individuals and seem to embody the essence of the current Human Design/I Ching influences. With the transformative energy to meet society’s needs, and with our will in balance with our emotions, we instinctively understand when change is necessary. The 6th Ray of Devotion/Idealism fosters an activist or idealist approach.

Until next time…

Lunar Blessings!
