Moon Magic Monday: Lunar Cancer and Leo Will Inspire Us

Let's see what the moon has in store for us this week!

We all know how our moon placement affects our emotions. And we know how lunar transits and aspects affect our day. Let’s see how the moon is going to affect our week!

Monday, June 27


In the wee hours of the morning, the moon in Gemini forms a conjunction with Mercury, also in Gemini. At this time, Mercury feels secure and at home in this constellation. This conjunction can inspire our business sense. We are discerning, capable, and mentally aware. Now is a wonderful time to create our business plan. This preparation will lead to success in the future.

Around dinner time, the moon forms a trine with Saturn, who is happy at home in considerate Aquarius. Under this trine, we see things clearly and tackle our goals with a great level of dedication and care. We feel organized and responsible. There is a desire to sort out our space as well as our thoughts. We are setting our intentions with care and consideration. There is no immediate rush to see our plans come to fruition. We are happy to take methodical and deliberate steps in achieving our goals.

As the sun sets, the moon forms a sextile with Mars in Aries. Under this sextile, we have tremendous strength and willpower.  At this time, we are open and honest with others and we expect others to be open and honest with us.

An hour later, the moon forms a square with Neptune in Pisces. Under this placement, we are passive and anxious. We may feel hypersensitive and be easily hurt by the words and actions of those around us. This hypersensitivity can lead us to direct our insecurities inward. At times like this, self care is very important. It may help to eat your favorite meal or watch your favorite movie. Meditation may also help. It could be very tempting to get lost in wishful thinking. Some positive escapism may help take your mind off of your anxieties.

As we wake up, the moon moves into Cancer. Under this moon, we crave the simple and pleasant side of life. As the moon is at home in Cancer, we too have a desire for home. It has been a long week, and now it is time for some rest and relaxation. At this time, we value feeling emotionally secure and physically safe. Self care is important for us now. We can cook our favorite meal, read our favorite book, tidy up our living space, or just take a well-deserved nap. It is essential that we use this time to recharge our batteries.

This evening, the moon forms a square with Jupiter in Aries. Under this square, conflict may arise in many facets of our lives. We may find ourselves at odds with others and pick fights with everyone around us.  We may be careless with our resources as well as our health. Be mindful of alcohol and caffeine, because our livers are especially vulnerable.

Just a few minutes later, the sun in Gemini forms a conjunction with the moon, creating an unpredictable new moon. Under this placement, we are on edge and easily agitated. We may experience intense mood swings. This new moon may cause friction with our loved ones. Arguments with our friends and family may occur. We may feel restless, and struggle to find our peace of mind. At this time, it may be beneficial to find some quiet solitude. We may find peace in meditation. Or it may be wise to take a personal day.

Wednesday, June 29 


In the evening, the moon forms a sextile with Uranus. This sextile grants us ambition and a can-do attitude. We are more than happy to help out with projects, both at work and at home. Thanks to our pragmatic sensibilities, we are able to persuade others easily to our way of thinking. We also may have a great desire to travel at this time. We crave a bit of freedom and are curious to see what the world has to offer. It may be time to plan a small getaway or take a day trip

Thursday, June 30 


In the middle of the morning, the moon forms a trine with Neptune. Under this trine we are innovative and have a great enthusiasm for life. We have an appreciation for the beauty around us as well as within us. We feel artistic and attractive. Now is the time for us to put our imaginations to good use and pursue some creative endeavors.

Around lunchtime, the moon is square with Mars. This is a highly emotional placement, and it may make us feel like our emotions are all over the place. We may feel excitable and make hasty decisions. We may also feel combative. If we feel threatened, especially by the opposite gender, we can find ourselves in a heated argument. After being so on edge, we may feel moody and need to withdraw within ourselves. 

Later in the afternoon, the moon moves in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. This placement may cause you to feel like all your effort is not being appreciated or reciprocated. To counteract this dejected feeling you may turn to creature comforts, or you may indulge in things that bring you pleasure. It’s perfectly alright to distract yourself from the hurt every now and then. But be careful. Do not overindulge. Too much of anything is bad for you, and an over-dependence on pleasure can lead to physical, mental, and emotional illness.

As the sun sets, the moon moves into flamboyant Leo. Under this moon, we are overcome with self-confidence. We feel amorous. It is very easy to attract romantic partners at this time. We may have a casual fall “flirtationship.” At this time, we feel extremely inspired and may want to express ourselves in as many creative ways as possible. We feel very theatrical and have the desire to perform in front of others. Don’t hold back! Find a stage and demand your spotlight.

Friday, July 1


This morning, the moon forms a trine with Jupiter. Under this transit, we feel cheerful and generous. We are attracting those around us with our optimism and inspiring others with our altruistic pursuits. Now is a great time to revisit that project you have been working on. This project may help to inspire and comfort others.

This afternoon, the moon in Pisces forms a sextile with Venus in Gemini. This sextile fills our lives with love and balance. We feel safe and secure with our romantic partners. We are gracious and considerate of others. Now is a wonderful time to consider starting a family or becoming active in your community.
