The Moon in Virgo trine Uranus in Taurus at exactly 2:16 AM EDT. Lunar aspects have an 'orb of influence' of 12 to 14 hours 'before' and 'after' their exactness.
The Moon in Virgo sextile Mercury in Cancer at exactly 7:33 AM EDT. Lunar aspects have an 'orb of influence' of 12 to 14 hours 'before' and 'after' their exactness.
The Sun in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces at exactly 3:34 PM EDT where it began in applying degrees on June 1, 2019, it is exact today, and will last in separating degrees until June 18, 2019.
The Moon in Virgo sextile Mars in Cancer at exactly 8:45 PM EDT. Lunar aspects have an 'orb of influence' of 12 to 14 hours 'before' and 'after' their exactness.
The BIG NEWS today is the Sun in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces. You can tell what this aspect is about looking at the Astro Meme. It completes deceives itself. Since Neptune stays in a sign for 13-1/2 to 14 years. Neptune moved into Pisces back on February 3, 2012 and it will last until March 30, 2025, so we are right at about the half-way mark of Neptune's transit through the sign of Pisces.
Since this aspect is a 'square' then that means it is a challenge, which doesn't feel Good. Think of a square as a box (because it's square) with one of those sharp corners poking into your side. Neptune is spiritual, dreamy, and imaginative and has escapist tendencies. Neptune dives into the world of fantasy, illusion, dreams and the invisible realm. The Sun rules the identity, the ego, individuality, power and pride. Now look at the Astro Meme again. Get the picture? This square sees what it wants to see. This aspect is the epitome of 'self-deception'. It doesn't mean to, it just sees what it sees and believes what it believes. The person trying to get in those pants does not see the 'muffin top' which will be the result when they button those pants. They only see that they got into a size 10 when they probably need a 14 to fit comfortably. Hey, I'm not poking fun here, I'm just saying, that is exactly what this aspect is like. It sees what it wants to see, not what really is. This aspect is all about self-deception with the ego heavily involved. The Sun is after all a huge and heavy star, it's not really a planet, it's a STAR.
This aspect can make you think that you are the spiritual master or guru or the vessel who is the one to deliver the message to God's people. People under the influence of this aspect or one similar to it will always say, "I am just the vessel delivering a message." Certainly, we are all vessels, but this aspect causes one to think of oneself as 'the important one' who has been 'chosen' and it makes one want to be seen as important. So when this aspect flies over the rest of us (who do not have this aspect in the natal chart) then we might be thinking along these same lines.
This aspect began in applying degrees on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 5:15 AM EDT, it is EXACT today and it will last in separating degrees until June 18, 2019 at 1:25 AM EDT. The further away the date from today, like June 1st and June 18th, the less of an impact this aspect has. It's the closer to this date (today) that has the most influence. So if I wrote your Solar Return and your birthday is today or super-close to this date, then you will be impacted 'the most' by this aspect, and its a tough one because it is likely you will gain weight and not be able to see it. And it's likely, because of the ego (Sun), you won't be able to handle someone telling you that you have gained weight.
Now let's think about this aspect for a minute. Neptune can only square two (2) signs during its transit in Pisces and those two signs are Gemini and Sagittarius. We are in the Sun in Gemini right now, so Neptune in Pisces is squaring the Sun in Gemini. A square is when you see two signs separated by two signs. The two signs in this scenario are Pisces and Gemini. The two signs separating these two signs are Aries and Taurus. There are ALWAYS two signs, between two signs, that make a squaring angle. Cool huh? So on the other side of Pisces the square is to Sagittarius because Aquarius and Capricorn separate Pisces and Sagittarius. Interestingly enough, Gemini and Sagittarius are oppositions. This creates a T-Square. If I wrote your natal chart, then you know when you have a T-Square you focus on the opposite side of where the apex is located. The apex of the T-Square is at Neptune in Pisces, so the opposite side would be focusing on Pisces opposite sign, which would be Virgo. Well son-of-a-biscuit-eater. Pisces is mental health and Virgo is physical health. So my suggestion to you during this aspect, and especially if it impacts your Solar Return, then get back into your physical health and exercise and eat right so you will not be attempting to squeeze into pants that are two sizes too small. Again, the closer your birthday to June 1st or June 18th and not close to today June 9th, then this aspect will impact you less, but it is still there. The closer your birthday to this date the more you will be impacted by this aspect.
Every single person needs to check themselves constantly while this aspect is occurring (June 1st to June 18th) so that the ego does not become inflated or disillusioned with grandeur. This could easily turn into self-ingratiating actions. You must continue to accept spiritual responsibility with clarity, humility and grace. Grace is unearned favor. In other words, you did nothing, absolutely nothing to receive God's favor. He favored you just because He Loves you. Just because He wanted to and not for anything you or we did. This is very important to remember under this aspect. In order to calm down and to keep from getting too big in the head, Mercury or Saturn need to be embraced in order to enact some common sense, mental clarity, responsibility, groundedness and self-discipline.
If you do not get ahold of yourself and check your ego, then this aspect can easily turn into over-the-top Love where romance soars off the charts, so much so that romance can turn into something morbid and ugly, such as debasing and debauchery, not to mention you could be overweight acting out in that way. You might do things for Love sexually that you would otherwise have the common sense not to do. This is because Neptune is the higher octave of Venus. This leaves scandal, affairs and secrecy in its wake. Love can be confused, weak, drunk, pornographic and unfulfilled. Self-destruction and self-undoing can easily take over with this aspect. So you can see how this could affect you? Neptune naturally rules Pisces and the 12th house of self-undoing and weakness, but also remember that our greatest weakness is also our greatest strength. Again, the closer your birthday to June 1st or June 18th and not close to today June 9th, then this aspect will impact you less, but it is still there. The closer your birthday to this date the more you will be impacted by this aspect.
Keep in mind this aspect will continue to occur when the Sun is in Gemini and when the Sun is in Sagittarius. The next date will be on December 8, 2019 when the Sun in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces, and birth dates within about 9 days on either side of that date will be impacted. If I wrote your Solar Return, that information is in there. [Keep reading . . .]
The other tendency with this aspect is to find a way of escape (nature of the Pisces fish) to dart off in another direction. This could lead to drugs, alcohol, sex, etc., in order to dive into illusion and escape reality. A well-developed Mercury and especially Saturn will help keep you from diving into that cesspool.
Another route of escapism might be into a cult or some form of mysticism that robs you of the self, rather than helping you discover more about yourself. Certainly having a well-developed (or structured) spiritual or religious backbone will help you from falling into some sort of ego-trip-vessel persona. Again, we are all vessels, of course but the vessel accompanied with such a large ego is not the vessel we should seek.
This is also not an aspect that you should engage in speculation, gambling or financial risk. The mind is not right with this aspect and you could easily bet the ranch and lose.
When you have ahold of your Mercury and Saturn placements, then this aspect can serve you well by being empathetic to others suffering, while being able to help without over-doing it or helping due to guilt or just trying to make yourself look Good. Empathy and suffering can be overwhelming with this aspect so you have to have your head screwed on straight.
This aspect can be very helpful if you have artistic, musical or creative talents. That is where this energy should be directed.
