Prince of Cups
You’ll probably be feeling quite loving today. Emotions are open and flowing and you’re getting along with everyone.
People will likely find you even more attractive than usual, and you them. But don’t confuse that with getting serious.
Emotions may have been high lately, or at least all over the place. You might find yourself thinking a lot about what in life (and love) truly makes you happy.
It’s a good time to think about it. But don’t worry, there’s no need to make any firm commitments right now. Just look around you and experience what life has to offer.
You’re in the process of building a new emotional maturity. Enjoy and play friendly.
The Moon moves into Cancer today, and stays there until Monday.
Looking at this transit through the lens of the Tarot, you might describe it as the High Priestess dressed in the clothing of the Charioteer. She’s left the safety of her pillars and veil, and has hit the road.
The Moon in Cancer, or the High Priestess dressed as the Charioteer, can be a powerful time of comfortable change and emotional resilience.
Knowledge gathered in silence has coalesced and it’s time to share without fear of being hurt.
Emotional loyalty, intuitive direction and strength of character can give you the resolve to go forward. Even into the unknown.
Try not to coddle yourself. You can only win if you have the courage to play to the end.

New energy and general enthusiasm are your gifts for today. It’s time to start moving towards your dreams.
It might be just the beginning, but you have to start somewhere and you have the energy and passion to do it right now. Why wait?
Look into your heart and see what makes it stand up and sing. That’s the sign that you’re on the right track.

Venus moves into Taurus today and will stay there until June 23rd.
If we look at this transit from a Tarot perspective, it would be like the Empress is wearing the Hierophant’s clothing. She’s moved from casual comfort to a more authoritative formal look.
Venus in Taurus, or the Empress in the Hierophant’s clothing can be a time of faith that the universe is operating exactly as it should. How could it not be? The world’s mother is in charge.
Creative energies can be contained, directed and used to exalt the lowly and the sublime. It’s a time of sensuality, but one that’s refined and under control.
Fine art, philosophy, music, and good food. Embrace it all and celebrate how amazing it is to be human.
As long as the Empress is in this outfit, the rule of the day is grace, love and beauty.
Mercury moves into Cancer today, and stays there until June 17th.

Mercury in Cancer, or the Magician wearing the Charioteer’s clothing, is an excellent time to turn your ideas into action.
Inspiration abounds, as does the strength to follow through on your commitments.
Don’t give up if the going gets tough, or communication gets murky. Just recalibrate and try again.
Clearly let others know what it is you need from them, but don’t wait around if they can’t help you.
A determined focus and the intention to move forward will get you to where you need to go.
Charge forward with faith in victory. Success is calling.

#21 – The Universe
Dance and rejoice! You deserve to celebrate after a long journey. A phase in your life is coming to a close – it’s big but not scary.
This is a good day to reflect on what’s been happening in your life over the last long while. Where were your successes and what would you rather leave behind? How did all the little stories turn into a whole big narrative?
Review, laugh and maybe even cry, but don’t carry old burdens with you going forward. Be free and open and willing to be vulnerable. You’ve done what you can. It’s time now to simply enjoy your own little slice of the universe. You’ll have plenty of time to plan your next step tomorrow.
The Moon moves into Gemini today and will stay there until Friday.
From a Tarot perspective, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Lovers’ Angel. She floats above the naked couple, blessing their sacred union.
The Moon in Gemini, or High Priestess dressed as the Lovers’ angel, can be an emotionally confusing time, one where internal conflicts arise in order to be reconciled.
But it can also be a time of clarity, honest communication and almost intuitive understanding about yourself and those around you.
Quiet faith teams up with commitment and the Angels approve of the whole thing.
Try to keep your emotions in line with your reason. Going too far either way could disturb a really nice balance.

Waiting and watching will probably be a bit of a preoccupation today. You’ve begun the process and have done all you can for the moment.
This might be a good time to review the steps you’ve taken so far. Make sure that you’ve got yourself balanced before the real journey begins.
Virtue is likely to be a key concept. Virtue here means being true to yourself within and between all your layers – mind, body and spirit.
Are your emotions in line with your thinking? Are you acting in a way that accurately reflects you’re beliefs and feelings? Explore these questions and relax. Your ship will arrive soon.
I’ve always loved the idea of Native American Dream Catchers, meant to catch your bad dreams in their web, while letting good dreams pass on through to you while you sleep.
The song itself was written by Les Hilliard, Brandon Hilliard, and Brooke Willis. I love it.
