Hey everyone welcome to this weekly city of astrology forecast for the week of June 26th through the 2nd of July 2023., all right, so quite a busy week, astrologically.

First of all, we do have a full moon, which will be technically early Monday of next week, but it is certainly worth noting that this week is a gaining of energy and especially once we get to the weekend a shift of perspective and likely shifts along our life Journey.

Now we do have some squares this week with both Venus and Mars, who are quite close to each other in Leo they're, going to be squaring up to erratic Uranus this week.

So it's Mars early on Monday with this and so any kind of maybe impulsivity or rationess.

We might be feeling finding the constructive way of implementing that assertiveness that action.

That initiative is great, then, at the very end of the week on Sunday, it's Venus's turn to square Uranus, and so there may be in those relationships and what we're enjoying in life finding a little bit of balance there as well with that erratic Uranus can be fantastic.

We do have the sun in Mercury conjoining this week around the weekend on Saturday.

This is the halfway point of the Sun Mercury cycle.

If you will- and so maybe some New Perspectives again over the weekend, especially with that full moon but uh, both of these planets are going to be trining Saturn here this week, which does give a bit of a groundingness to how we're expressing ourselves and perhaps also communicating or even learning, things can be quite constructive during this week as well and then, lastly, with the most important thing, uh Neptune is going retrograde and so around the Friday time period, just slowly, starting to notice probably into the coming weeks.

Maybe there's some things we can reflect on a little bit regarding spirituality and how we can bring a little bit more peace into our life for about the next six months or a year.


So let's go and take a look at all of this here in more detail when we return alrighty.

So here is the sky for this week.

We're going to look at this for each day of the week, starting first with Monday, June 26th and, as you can see here, we are using the visible sky on this channel, which is very different from mainstream astrology.

You will notice a lot of the sign placements are different, and so, if you do notice that, like, for example, maybe you're expecting Jupiter beat to be in Taurus uh, maybe you're expecting uh the sun to be going into cancer shortly.

So if you do notice, the signs are different.

Different, definitely check out that link down below for more information all right.

So a quick recap here, no main sign changes, except for the fact that mercury is just coming into Gemini early in the week.

So that is a shift for more grounding tourists.

We don't have any major planets in Taurus at the moment, so things are definitely more on the Yang side of things.

So the Sun and mercury and Gemini is this side.

That's about learning being inquisitive and developing things like Communications, and so this is likely to continue to be the case uh this week and probably more emphasize this week than weeks prior now that mercury is making his way into that constellation.

But what's also Yang is Venus and Mars in expressive, Leo, the fire sign of Leo, and so it's great to be enjoying life and especially in those relationships in a way, that's a bit playful fun, expressive, Hobbies interests or a little bit more of this passion and Creative Energy.

It's great to be.

You know connecting in that way enjoying things in life, even if it is outside of relationships, but both of these plants are quite interpersonal, and so it does emphasize a bit of that all right, so quite straightforward there with the fast movers so starting first here with Monday the 26th.

That is when we do have that Marge scoring up to that erratic Uranus, and so we'll likely be feeling this coming into the week probably previous weekend.

But this is where Mars the planet of our needs and our drives is in a clash with the part of ourselves that wants freedom and change, and so it can sometimes be a bit of that bottlenecking energy, where we do want to break free with some things.

Maybe we're not feeling like we're able to express ourselves in a way that is true to what we want and who we are on a on a deeper level and so uh feeling that energy of, maybe that part of our self that wants to make some changes, wants to have more freedom and find a constructive way of doing that right being Mindful and intentional is always a great way of working with the squares and then in this way is very constructive, because then we can Channel this energy into things that, yes, do, give us a healthy sense of Freedom, healthy change and speak more to our true self.

When it's intentional, when it's you know conscious, like that so great way of working with the week, and we can likely notice, perhaps some nice steps in the right direction.

Regarding more of that freedom, initiative.

Um, you know experimenting getting outside of our comfort zone a little bit kind of energy.

At the beginning of the week there all right so um so that'll definitely be the most important thing here, um around Monday, but the moon will be in Virgo here for the early part of the week.

So the moon will be here all the way from Monday until Wednesday, the 28th and so just a good early part of the week, for maybe some improvements and refinement striving towards a little bit of perfection.

If you will seeing how things can be fixed and improved with ourselves or our lives can be a great way of working with that early part, and this will be the first quarter moon.

So it is good to still challenge ourselves a little bit uh this early part of the week to move any any energy forward from the New Beginnings that we experienced about a week ago, when we had that last New Moon all right and then once we do get to about the Wednesday time period.

We start to come into some of these new aspects.

Definitely easing up off of that square with Uranus by this point and uh here is really the sun starting to try and Saturn, so I think there's going to be a nice groundedness around Wednesday, maybe with how we're expressing ourselves, maybe just feeling a bit productive or disciplined or responsible and channeling that into anything that does require that sort of long-term View is always fantastic.

As we start to get to the Thursday time, Venus will be trining Chiron, maybe there's some healing energy to come through in those relationships or on just the enjoyments of life.

So nothing really strong here with this one, but just nice to notice that anything.

That is a form of connection, whether it's with ourself and others, whether it's with ourself and ourselves and ourself or our environment, can actually be quite healing and quite therapeutic, so great way of working with that Thursday time period, and this is where the moon starts to shift into Libra.

So Thursday the theme will likely be around bringing a little more balance to our life anyways and maybe some of those interpersonal relationships like doing what's fair right and just as Libra often symbolizes their uh there on Thursday.

Then, as we do start to get into the Friday time, then the Mercury will Trine up to Saturn, and so here's where we might get a bit of groundedness with our mind and our Communications and so anything again, productive or learning based can be fantastic there with that Saturn in good Harmony to the Sun Mercury here this week, and this is where we will start to feel a bit of the well not on this day specifically, but as we do get to really the coming weeks, we'll notice this uh Neptune going retrograde.

It's usually very subtle.

It's usually very slow, as this is a very slow moving Planet.

But it's nice to see that over about the next six months, it's good to maybe turn a little more inward in the sense of what is really important to us on a soul level.

And how can we bring a little bit more peace and tranquility and acceptance into our lives right? This happens once a year, but it's always a great time of the year to do that and we'll likely know it's a bit of a shift to start to connect a little bit more with our soul.

I feel like over the next six months, and this is good because again we have a lot of Yang energy in the sky, even with the fact that Jupiter is now expanding, Aries there's a lot of that fire um.

You know in the in the sky and so nice to have this now time to maybe reconnect with that spiritual or inner or soul-guided side of ourselves, all right, so that's Friday and then Friday.

We do get a bit of this uh deeper energy, because the moon will start to shift into Scorpio around this time, probably more so later, um, Friday and really over the weekend, I would say: Saturday and Sunday we'll have the moon in Scorpio and a fucus.

It's a great time to really reconnect with our deeper selves and our deeper values of life, and again maybe do some of that deep, diving with ourselves or some healing, which can be great likely once we do get to that full moon, which will be again early Monday of next week.

We should be feeling actually quite healed and transformed, because the full moon will be in Sagittarius on Monday of next week, and that is the really post transformation.

That's coming out of the deeper energies of Scorpion of fucus and maybe feeling quite healed and transformed, and then with the full moon, seeing how we can shift perspectives in our life.

Maybe shift our life path a little bit to have a little more of this open-mindedness and free-spirited nature.

That Sagittarius is all about and again we'll likely still feel some of that full moon energy early.

But it is worth noticing noting here that the moon will be in a fucus really leading up to that.

For that um.

You know post-transformation afterwards, all right so over the weekend here as well.

The Sun Mercury conjunction, we have is just the halfway point of the Sun Mercury cycle, so sometimes this can be some New Perspectives and some new Awareness on life, but this can also be read as a bit of combust energy, where it's a bit difficult, because the sun is drowning out the Mercury energy.

So even though we do have that groundedness and support this week with the trines to Saturn, it's worth noticing that maybe around late Friday and early Saturday, if there is a bit of the um I, don't know buzzing and a bit of maybe difficulty to perceive things or think about things.

Or maybe you know too much in that communication realm, where it's almost unconscious again.

Mercury is being drowned out by the fire of the Sun.

So anything that brings extra attention to what we're communicating to our minds to our thoughts during this time can be great and that just facilitates more of a healthy New, Perspective or new shift.

That again, we often do experience during that combust energy with the sun and Mercury there, and it's nice to see, though, that they are going to be sex.

Styling Jupiter, while they do this, and so there is again that Sagittarius energy definitely available over the weekend.

Jupiter is also about being open-minded being a bit jovial with things and all those sextiles.

Aren't that strong, it's nice to see that we do have a bit of that top-down view or open-minded view.

That certainly is available there again over the weekend, all right and then lastly, Venus will be the last one here, with the Mars and Venus uh being close together to square up to erratic Uranus.

So Venus deals specifically with relationships and our values and our enjoyments of life.

So again, if there is a bit of an Impulse or rationess to you know make some, you know, do some sudden things there, it's good again to listen to the true self.

Listen to that.

You know calling to listen to our excitement.

Listen to that excitement and then perhaps Implement that constructively connecting in our relationships in a different way.

That's maybe healthfully outside of our comfort zone, maybe connecting with different people.

We normally don't maybe enjoying things in life they're a little bit more spontaneous and experimenting can always be great with this as well.

So again with that intention, it could be.

You know great way of working with this.

It can be a very constructive aspect of again bringing in a little bit more of that change and freedom into our life in this case, maybe particularly with our values, enjoyments and relationships all right, and then, of course, that full moon early next week, so that's the week in a nutshell, quite a bit going on, but just to simplify it here.

It is the increasing energy throughout the week, as we do approach that full moon, which will be early next week and um yeah and around the weekend, perhaps a bit of a shift of perspective both with the sun and Mercury conjunction, the full moon and uh, and all this really being involving Jupiter and Sagittarius really gives us this higher perspective on things.

The challenges this week are very early and very late, so on Monday, very early just a bit of that fire energy and you know our needs asserting ourself in constructive ways and then over the weekend with those enjoyments values and relationships.

But it's nice to see that this week we do have a nice groundingness with Saturn keeping things, probably quite stable, um and Neptune's starting to go retrograde, maybe starting to turn a little bit more inward in regards to what's important to us on a soul level.
