Has Mercury retrograde been grating on your nerves? Are you ready to let go of the stress and upsets of the last month and start anew? Then this is the week for you, as the stars above are bringing us some relief from frustration coupled with a chance to let go and release any negativity.
We’ve got a few major transits this week, starting on June 22nd when Mercury goes direct in the sign of Gemini. Mercury is the planet of communication, information, and short-distance travel – and it’s been retrograde since May 29th – bringing frazzled energy and mishaps.
Now that it’s going direct in the sign, it rules over, and you can expect smoother sailing when it comes to conversations, technology, and travel.
Next up, we’ve got a Full Moon in Capricorn on June 24th. The Full Moon is a time of release, a time to let go of the grudges, upsets, or hurt feelings of the past lunar cycle.
This is an opportunity to rid your body and your energy of negativity, making room for the blessings and abundance to come in the next lunar cycle. It symbolizes the end of a cycle, a time to finish up one chapter and move onto something new and exciting.
On June 25th, Neptune – the planet of illusions, mysticism, and dreams – goes retrograde. While Mercury retrograde is typically associated with frustration, Neptune retrograde can actually bring clarity and understanding, as the illusory fog that Neptune can bring on tends to lighten up.
In other words, Neptune can place a veil over our eyes when it’s moving at full speed, but that veil is pulled back when it’s moving retrograde.
And finally, Venus – the planet of love and beauty – moves into fiery Leo on June 27th, helping you feel more enthusiastic when it comes to romance. If you’ve been looking to manifest love or meet someone new, this energy will give you the confidence you need to go after what you want!
With Mercury moving direct and strengthening communication, the Full Moon bringing a sense of release, Neptune encouraging more mental clarity, and Venus amplifying your confidence, this is a great week to consider your goals and how to move towards them.
June 21 – June 27 is a Week to Let Go & Move Forward
The tension of Mercury retrograde is gone, and the Full Moon helps you let go of negativity and frustration. These elements, coupled with the lucidity that Neptune retrograde brings and the optimistic energy of Venus in Leo, make this the perfect week to move on from stagnant energy and start advancing towards your goals and dreams.
The clarity and relief flowing your way set the foundation for making moves and moving forward. If you’ve been stuck on negative thoughts or emotions, this week’s astrological energy will help set you free.
If you feel disconnected from your dreams and desires, a personalized astrological reading can bring you back to your center.
