New Moon in Gemini, Mars & Mercury Change Signs

This Weekend and Monday (June 16-18) the Moon is in Taurus, activating the May 20 Solar Eclipse point, Jupiter, Ketu, and Venus. It is an Old Moon, therefore malefic, i.e, the tendency is towards Problems, Crisis, etc. Best to stick to routine actions. Not a good time for making important decisions: Judgement (Jupiter) tends to be off.
The New Moon will be on Tuesday June 19 @ 4 deg. Gemini. This marks the beginning of the Hindu lunar month of Ashada, named for the lunar sign of the Full Moon, Purva Ashada, considered auspicious for New Beginnings, Taking a Strong Stance, Confronting Enemies, etc. but also suffering from Over Confidence.
Mars enters Virgo on Thursday, June 21. After nearly 7 and 1/2 months in Leo (since last October), Mars will finally change signs, creating a new dynamic in the Heavens. While changing signs later this week, The planet of Beginnings is Weakened, so best not to be starting anything important. The energy of Mars in Virgo is more Critical, Logical, and good for Solving Problems. But as Mars progresses through Virgo, it will come into opposition with Uranus, setting up a pattern for Violent Events later in July.
Mercury enters Cancer on Thursday, June 21. The planet of Rational Thinking doesn't do so well in an emotional water sign. Although Mercury usually gets through a sign in less than 3 weeks, its sojourn in Cancer will last 2 and 1/2 months, until the end of August, because Mercury will go through a retrograde phase while in Cancer, starting mid-July.
Since two planets are changing signs this week simultaneous with the Summer Solstice, this is not a favorable week for beginning important new endeavors.
