Skymates, it’s almost the midpoint of the month, and I’m just now writing KTZ’s general monthly overview. This is very much on brand, because we currently have six planets retrograde right now, slowing down our momentum. And we also had a Pisces Full Moon on the 9th, which led to culminations in our personal and professional lives that we’re still taking time to unpack. Virgo Season has also increased our perfectionism and self-critical attitudes, but Mars’ presence in Gemini until March 2023 reminds us that it’s absolutely normal to make mistakes, to re-reroute, to be confused, to contradict ourselves, and to change our minds. That’s what’s likely to happen this September 2022, skymates. We’re going to think we know what we want, and then the next day we may want the opposite of what we thought we wanted. It’s once Mercury gets out of its shadow period in October that we’ll truly have clarity, and because Pluto and Saturn both end their retrogrades next month (on the 8th and 23rd respectively), we’re going through major cosmic turning points in September. Pay attention to the signs and synchronicities taking place, particularly around the Libra New Moon on the 25th…
Skymates, take a deep breath as July begins. The planetary square between Mars in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn can be making the collective energy feel antsy and slightly distressed, but once Mars shifts into Taurus on the 5th we’re going to start stabilizing ourselves, and our lives, from the inside out. At the end of this month, Jupiter shifts retrograde in Aries for the first time in 11 years. Jupiter Retrograde’s pre-shadow period will be felt in the first few days of the month, and when you combine it with the lingering energy of the Cancer New Moon, many of us are likely to feel sentimental and nostalgic about life this month. But that doesn’t mean we need to get stuck in the past, or in our feelings.
Moving our body, spending time in nature, and slowing down to enjoy life’s simple pleasures: that’s big Mars in Taurus energy. With Venus, the Planet of Love, spending time in Gemini, and then Cancer, our social lives may have both an introverted and extroverted flair to them. Honor the moments when all you want to do is chill in bed with yourself and your favorite book, and honor the moments when you want to feel consumed with someone who makes you smile, laugh, feel safe, and climax. You deserve love from yourself, and from others, and this will particularly become clear once Leo Season begins on the 22nd. Our collective desire to feel seen, celebrated, and adored will be felt, and the Leo New Moon on the 28th can help us live life in a way that makes our inner child feel free. Because life truly is as simple as we choose to view, and make it, skymates.
Let’s choose to create a reality that liberates us from our fears, or from oppressive systems. It won’t happen overnight, but trust that it’s already happening, breath by breath. By the time Saturn ends its final retrograde in Aquarius (for the next 29 years) in 3.5 months, you’ll see why doing the shadow work and facing our own inhibitions, personally and collectively, is truly paying off. Stay focused on the new consciousness we’re co-creating, and make this month a brilliantly awakening, and healing, experience.
Welcome to June, skymates! Mercury shifts direct on the 3rd, and then Saturn, the Planet of Challenge, begins its 4.5 month retrograde on the 4th. Start the month of with the spirit of setting Gemini New Moon intentions — all signs would benefit from infusing more fun, playfulness, and light-heartedness into their lives. But Gemini energy is also about exploring and acknowledging one’s shadows, contradictions, and inconsistencies… Perhaps there’s an inner twin in all of us that wants to be validated, and that wants to be trusted. That inner twin may feel like doing something completely different this month, and radically transforming, metamorphosing, and letting go of what and who you once were. Go for it, skymate! It’s your life, your movie, your roles to try on and experiment with. The Sag Full Moon on the 14th is likely to help all skymates dream more optimistically, but we’d benefit from using the reflective energy of Saturn Retrograde to make sure we’re not leaping without we look — there may be some blind spots and repeating mistakes that occur this month, but if we’re present and not distracted by everything happening around us, we’ll catch the cues before anything catastrophic or devastating occurs. It’s a relatively chill post-eclipse month, especially once the Sun shifts into Cancer on the 21st, encouraging us to slow down, meditate, and strengthen our relationship with our third eye and intuition. Flow with the wisdom that’s always existed within you, skymate… Read more in your KTZ Monthly Scopes below. Have a great month of June!
It’s eclipse season, skymates. We’re going through a cosmic passage, one where one consciousness is left behind, with love, but also with mourning. And a new one is entered. Jupiter, the Planet of Expansion, shifts into Aries on May 10, for the first time in 11 years. Whew. A major shift awaits us this month, and the Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on the 16th is the highlight of it all. The Moon may be in its fall in Scorpio, but Scorpio has no issue with falling, because they often rise even more beautifully than ever before. With the second Mercury Retrograde of the year beginning on the same day as Jupiter’s entrance into Aries, this portal is guaranteed to feel trippy and somewhat all-over-the-place. But Taurus Season’s energy can still ground us in moments when it feels like we’re either taking flight or propelling ourselves up into space, like a rocket ship. Ultimately, we’re here. On Earth. Breathing our way through life and figuring it out day by day. Lunar and solar eclipses have happened before and they will continue to occur. So we’re here to ride through the waves, and accept what we’re feeling in the process. And now, Jupiter, Venus, and Chiron, all in Aries, want you to actually do something about what you’re feeling. That’s where the magic resides. In the intentional, bold, passionate action. Ready, set? The world is ready for you.
Pisces, with so much energy focused on your sign, you’re feeling like you can flow more easily, and love more openly. Enjoy this! On Wednesday, the Moon in Sag comes into an uplifting connection with Saturn, and then clashes with Neptune and Jupiter. If you feel the need to take things slow at work, do so as much as your work environment allows it. If a coworker offers a hand, allow yourself to be pampered in this way. As the day comes to an end, the Moon will enter Capricorn and you’ll be feeling more social. On Thursday morning, social media and the online world might hog all of your attention. If this is the case, at least make sure to do something productive out of it. Don’t spend the whole day checking on likes and comments, find a balance between the virtual world and real life. If it gets hard to do, you can turn off your phone for an hour or two.
Aquarius, if you’re not tending to your pleasure, it’s time to stop what you’re doing, and connect with your senses and earthly needs. On Wednesday, the Moon in Sag comes into an uplifting connection with Saturn, and then clashes with Neptune and Jupiter. You’ve been really learning about your boundaries these past months, and right now people may try to test them. Don’t give more of what you want to give in the places where you perceive a lack of respect. As the day comes to an end, the Moon will enter Capricorn, and you may feel the need to retreat. I know it isn’t always easy to find the space to be alone, or to feel safe. If you can’t create this space for yourself on Thursday, at least make sure not to doubt what you know you need. The space within yourself is your sovereign land, and nobody can tell you how to be and to feel within your own body.
Capricorn, are you allowing yourself to speak from the heart? On Wednesday, the Moon in Sag comes into an uplifting connection with Saturn, and then clashes with Neptune and Jupiter. If you’re feeling blue today, give yourself a gift. Is there a place you’ve been meaning to visit? Something you’ve been meaning to buy for yourself? Any little pleasure can go a long way. As the day comes to an end, the Moon will enter your sign and you’ll feel more in your element. On Thursday, you’ll start the day with a lot of energy. If you feel like trying new things, go for it. Just make sure to treat yourself kindly, softly, and with care. Go slow or you might risk using up all of your energy. You may get a rush of inspiration as the day dwindles down, if you feel like doing something with it, don’t hold back!
