June 1, 2017 (Julian 152) Venus Trine Saturn
Moon in Virgo forms sesquiquadrates to Venus then Uranus in the morning in the Western hemisphere and afternoon / early evening in UK / EU. We feel a sense of urgency, and this is amplified by Moon (Virgo) square Sun (Gemini) as the second quarter begins, indicating that the Full Moon is a week away. You should be “getting things done” this week. Some people, places, and things continue to be dangerous, so certainly be careful, but do not hide your head in the sand. This is a time when you need to push to “get things done,” and this is especially true if you are Virgo or Aries and maybe for Earth (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo) and Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) in general.
Venus in Aries trines Saturn in Sagittarius. If you count the North Node in Leo, and many do, this gives a Grand Fire Trine. Tara Green has discussed this at length. Pluto in Capricorn, Mercury in Taurus, and Moon in Virgo form a Grand Earth Trine, also strong for accomplishment even though Taurus is not a great placement for Mercury and Moon in Virgo not particularly strong either. Even so, chances are good some people can make significant accomplishments or breakthroughs today.
Mars continues to be active all week; today is no exception. A sextile to the North Node is “karmic” and that might be dangerous for people who do not “pay it forward.” Mars also perfects a semi-sextile to the “White Moon,” But, what does that mean?
One source says this: “Astrologers still argue about the nature of this astrological point, which should express a man’s possibility to leave the time circle of karma and enter the eternity, the eternal world of the spirit.” What does that mean in a “practical” sense? Maybe nothing. But, again, we think today could be very significant, maybe dangerous, for some people. After all, leaving the ‘time circle of karma” sounds a bit like what other people call “death.”
Summary: this is a great day for productivity, but the weeklong risk of danger continues. Be careful to avoid dangerous people, places, and things.
