The Full Moon at 25°Sagittarius53’ perfects at 1:30AM PDT on Monday, June 17th. Sitting with faith-filled Jupiter, this Full Moon is the saving grace of a moment astrologer Austin Coppock has lovingly coined the “meat-grinder”. Three days before this lunation, Mars in Cancer opposes Saturn in Capricorn, initiating a tension between our compulsion to act and desperation for restraint. In the hours leading up to the Full Moon, Mercury, following close on Mars’ heels, opposes Saturn before meeting up with the warrior on Tuesday morning. Mars and the messenger continue scuttling through Cancer, opposing Pluto in Capricorn on Wednesday, June 19th, one day before Mercury enters retrograde pre-shadow and two days before the Summer Solstice and Neptune’s station retrograde. As if this weren’t intense enough, this week’s line-up of astrological action takes place conjunct the lunar nodes, indicating some serious shifts for anyone with planets or points around 18°-22° of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn).

Take this week to take care. Find faith in the space you create for yourself. Remember that whatever you cut away from your path is not intended to hurt, but to clear it. To carry on. To carve a container for more compassion. Sagittarius in its infinite potential, can sometimes be insensitive. And yet, Sagittarius is a sign of the sage. Of the hope that breeds optimism that offers utmost opportunity to evolve. Sagittarius is buoyant. Understands how to bounce back when the going gets rough. Resist the temptation to bypass this emotional moment with intellectual analysis or self-righteous sermons. Sagittarius is self-taught through experience. Honor this moon by fully embodying your present. Do not abandon yourself or your emotions. Do not ditch your community. Do not withdraw so much that you cannot find light in the dark. A Full Moon in Sagittarius is a not-so-subtle reminder that hope will always be something you can hold tight. Indulge in faith in yourself. Take a risk and speak up when you see something wrong. The archer will always shoot for the stars. Become the light you need to see.

If you know your rising sign and your sun sign, read both. If you only know your sun sign, that's okay too. If you like, you can read your moon sign for good measure. Horoscopes and forecasts are meant to be read as inspiration. The impact of planetary forces on our lives is more immense than we can see and a horoscope's level of resonance can vary from week to week.

horoscope for aries and aries rising

The limits to your success are directly correlated to how you define it. Your rising begins at the root of your beliefs. When you set out to climb a mountain, what do you expect to see at the top? As you wander up the path, break for lookouts, and approach the summit, notice how your excitement shifts. Observe how hopes and expectations change along the route. What do you believe about your power to control outcomes? What happens when you expand on the possibilities of what you are able to achieve? Find an opening, or many, in your definition of success. It is there where you can glide along the ridge-line in the company of gods, admiring how much is still unknown because you haven’t yet made it.

horoscope for taurus and taurus rising

The impulse to think as a replacement for feeling is valuable only when you understand you must use it sparingly. Situationally. Carefully. Curiosity and reflective intellect is of great value to you dear Taurus. Give yourself a container that is strong enough to hold your many questions. When you place your inquiries and doubts in this vessel - be it a person, a physical space, a journal or otherwise - the compulsive desire to know becomes bearable. Remember, you hold the authority over your beliefs. Over how much power hope has to propel you through to great feats, or to plummet when you set it higher than you know is reasonable. Hope needs a partner in action. On this Full Moon, practice receiving as a noble act. Be a watcher of words, an augur of understanding, a custodian of messages and a receptacle for hope. In this practice, you become a priceless asset to your own life.

horoscope for gemini and gemini rising

When you begin to see your home as a great resource, you can learn to come and go from it with more ease. Departing is inspired, rather than dimmed, by the intention to return. It can be comforting to see yourself as a home in motion, twin flames between which you dance incessantly, constantly carrying the message of your other self. Sometimes though, you might long for that place of stillness. For the peace that comes with silence. For the nobility that finds itself in innocence. Innocence breathes when there is no mirror to make a judgement. When you ask the universe a question, do you listen for the answer? Do you find comfort when nothing responds? When you are still, are you still seeking? Your curiosity for what is yet undecided, uncertain, unexplored, is admirable. Remember that this skill too, needs rest. Consider the place to which you intend to return. Do not judge your need for safety. An infant that is held to skin will be more capable of secure attachment. Settling in a space, even for a moment, makes setting out on an adventure a more serene affair.

horoscope for cancer and cancer rising

The art of visibility does not have moral implications. To be unseen is not to be bad. Likewise, prominence is not always a sign of integrity. Today is not a time to soak in limelight dear Cancer, but it is a momentary gift to reflect on how you like to be witnessed. What are the routines that breed integrity with your truth? What are the noble questions you need to ask no-one but you? Tension in your partnerships can reveal much about your own progress. When you are able to receive another’s actions or words without attaching yourself to them, you will know you are healing. When you are healing, you are able to feel and root in the sturdy weight of your own relevance. Be honest with yourself and humble with your truth. To be humble is not not to be self-deprecating. Remember you can be modest and remarkable all at once. This work begins with respect for your body and reverence for your suffering. When you hold these aspects in balance, you begin to draw from a deep well of compassion.

horoscope for leo and leo rising

The extent of the superficial cannot be determined without something deep to which you can compare it. The current astrology is not entirely kind to your health. Might be asking you to cut away at antagonistic ailments. Remember Leo, you are a sign of incredible life-force. Of infinite vigor. Of enduring energy. But even a welcoming bonfire can escape containment. Take the time you need to tend yourself, especially when in a state of embers. Find joy in the softer quality of warmth that this slow healing process brings. Look to your children for truth. To your creations for hope in hard moments. To your community for a mirror in which to witness yourself. A flame that grows steady and slow has a different skill-set than a wild and unruly mane. Devote yourself to learning about this new kind of fire you are discovering. This is not about preventing burnout. It’s about learning how to hold yourself up in the light, regardless of its potence from moment to moment. It’s about seeing how you thrive still when habitual abilities are removed. How naturally you find new skills to shine.

horoscope for virgo and virgo rising

What to do when adventure feels like the most natural kind of home? How do you hold yourself in the truth of each ever-shifting moment? Devotion to one idea of home can become a cage if you’re not careful. Instead, set out on a quest for noble truths you’d like your home to hold. How can you carry these truths without demanding others do exactly the same? Are you willing to find comfort in something that is solely true for you? This practice unearths ease when you don’t require others to understand but instead focus on understanding yourself. As this astrology uproots old love affairs and offers obstacles in creative ventures, remember your ability to seek inwards for the love you do not yet know. There is sweetness in celibacy for the sake of the thing for which you wait. Take solace in the art of seeking. Of ripening into your own power. Within this process, put out a call to community, the ultimate kind of healer. The conditions and relationships in a community can crush or carry you. Find community that demonstrates your truths. Hold yourself accountable to trusting them.

horoscope for libra and libra rising

Unparalleled social graces are a natural talent you are always fine-tuning. Libra, sign of consciousness, how do your visions find their focus in another’s eyes? Step out for a moment, of the vantage point of the individual. Watch yourself connect as if from a galaxy’s distance. Celebrate the enigma you become at this place far beyond self and other; where you get to be held in a hammock woven with possibility. Tucked away from your social strata, unseen obstacles at home work through you as much as you work on them. You are naturally inclined to rule over any place in which you reside but you are being challenged to learn to rule with rather than over. To be a queen with kindness and care. You cannot force family - chosen or of origin - to face themselves. Your sensation of confidence at home ultimately arises from your inner authority. This faith shows itself in balance when your public expression is not a mask but a mirror to what happens in private. Release the belief “I need to control this thing so I can rest.” Replace it with “rest first; in this I will find my resilience.”


horoscope for scorpio and scorpio rising

The practice is to be a basin of faith. When you are fully embodied, you receive and reflect the hopes of people back out to them. Surface like smooth glass, shining as it shows off others’ visions. When you are willing to tend this task, your basin will never be empty, for spirits who need to be seen, will find you whether or not they know they are seeking. This ability to hold hope up to the light - to illustrate how it refracts out from a prism, offering infinite possibility of intention - this is a magnificent asset Scorpio. You are learning how to help others build a bridge from profound questions to plainer answers. You are also learning how this bridge supports you as you traverse your own many realms. Be not only the container but also the thing that fills it. Be the water that runs beneath the wheel, purifying, cleansing yourself in the process.


horoscope for sagittarius and sagittarius rising

The quality of buoyancy is difficult to learn. More likely, it is inborn. Toss a rock in a river and it will sink. Throw something hollow and it will float. When you find space inside yourself, you will survive. When you see emptiness as a symbol of possibility, you can stop compulsively trying to fill it. Let spirit take you for a float down its river. Continue to fling open-ended questions at the world. This instinctive gift of yours creates portals through which you naturally expand Sagittarius. The universe might be asking you to work overtime for your resources right now. Might seem to throw up obstacles in your struggle for substance. You are not the sum of what you own. Wealth in the realm of matter is easily washed away. Money cannot buy the care you want to give and receive. Luckily too, lack of it cannot stop you from creating community that will embrace you. When you are floating, you don’t have to rush or restrain yourself. You just have to let the river carry you.

horoscope for capricorn and capricorn rising

When you feel yourself slipping away, are you grasping at something that doesn’t have gravity? Something that doesn’t actually work at the depths you need to feed yourself? In a world that is so intensely disassociated, you Capricorn, are still skilled at puncturing through to what is real. When you are frustrated by superficial routines, find comfort in careful preparation for the journey you are already on. Perform your daily rituals with the intention to reach through and far beyond this moment. Each of these is a ceremony, a celebration of the wisdom that fuels your vigor. Still, no matter how many layers of paint you apply to the future, it will not erase your present. If the coat is thin but careful, it is less likely to peel. Wabi-sabi, the elegance of natural withering, symbol of sage and time, is a quality you embody. Is beauty at the edge of nothingness. The infinite virtue of your shadow-work, the stuff of your dreams, is often so subtle you might be inclined to overlook it. Embrace the part of you that is both delicate and deep. The strength you are summoning is that of a seer whose splendid task is practice.

horoscope for aquarius and aquarius rising

Community comes in phases. Like a car on a train that witnesses many scenes. Rattles its way over countrysides, winds through mountains and river-valleys while people wander up and down the moving hall, knocking on compartment doors, saying hello or goodbye or something in between. Sometimes they come to stay; offer support. Introductions are of course, occasionally, a frustration. Still in other moments, an interruption is the answer. No matter where it goes or who you meet on this moving machine, the train will carry you. Revel in the friends with whom you share the same destination. Similar beliefs. Like styles of travel. The routine care you require can be found in those who are operating closest to you. When your kind of weird gets too dark, look to the ones creating interim homes for the strange. When your body is tired, find a temporary shelter. You may cycle through the cars, thinking the train will never stop but this journey too, will one day arrive at its station. When it does, you will hoist what you can on your back and depend on your legs. So, while you may, let yourself be carried and enjoy the fleeting view.

horoscope for pisces and pisces rising

What if your presentation isn’t destined to plummet? What if your proposals are priceless? You weren’t necessarily born to dream big but you were born to dream. This isn’t about being the best in your school of fish. It’s about creating a school that’s teaching something you want to learn. It’s remembering that comparing won’t make you any keener when you one day deliver your keynote. Can you imagine a community that supports your career because they have confidence in you? That promotes what you’re making because they think you’re magnificent? You set the standard for your own production. It is as malleable and fluid as you are. Your art thrives on natural cycles but your community has staying power through countless phases. Wavering faith often arises when we place trust in perfection rather than people. You don’t need to push yourself beyond the limits of your own patience to impress anyone Pisces. Remember how much you love your creative endeavors and learn to let go of what you don’t love. You can redefine your favorable outcome at any moment. Most good stories involve not getting it right the first time. Failing and succeeding are both opportunities to expand.
