6/5 Venus Enters Leo: The Need To Be Romantically Demonstrative
Venus will transit into Leo, allowing us to approach relationships with flare.
And one thing to note is that this planet will be in Leo for an unusually long time because Venus is going retrograde from July 22nd to September 3rd. Of course, I will keep everyone posted as we transition into this rare regressive cycle.
But for now, can we take this moment to appreciate the exhilarating energy this pairing offers us?! Our extravagant side in love, money, adventure, and our need to shine emerges when Venus traverses this sign.
We'll feel the urge to be celebratory because our need to lose ourselves in joyful antics will be potent with an energy like this.
Romance-wise, this enhances our bolder sides making it simpler to express ourselves in love-life scenarios. Therefore, it could be a period to be more demonstrative and passionate about taking action to improve our romantic situations.
Under this influence, the need to be playful, go on extraordinary dates, and infuse your relationship with more intimacy becomes enunciated during this transit.
Venus in Leo encourages us to shower ourselves in lux things, so on a financial level, we might get the urge to bask in the royal treatment. Also, we could feel motivated to pursue aspirations that help us regarding monetary gain.

6/5 Venus Oppose Pluto: Power Struggles In Relationships
Right out the gate, Venus will connect with Pluto in a way that might make us take a realistic look at relationships and finances.
Energetically, a configuration like this gives us the nudge needed to identify and eliminate the unhealthy patterns that are preventing us from achieving happiness in both our personal and professional lives.
Hence, we may learn crucial information about dishonesty with ourselves or other close relationships. For this reason, we’ll have to work on the areas where we need to address repressed situations and allow the truths that unfold to help us move forward from unconstructive unions.
Additionally, today may see a rise in control issues involving both love and money.
6/6 Sun Sesquiquadrate Pluto: How Not To Have An Ego Trip
The need for being the center of attention might become extremely pronounced with the Sun and Pluto connecting in a challenging transit.
A vibe like this tends to produce an abundant need for attention due to feeling superior and putting on a show to appear more impressive. As a result, this might cause people to try to outdo one another to draw attention to themselves leading to an excessive amount of competitive behavior.
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with wanting the spotlight; however, it becomes problematic if we’re stepping on others' toes or using it to validate our ego.
Because it has advantages, try to channel this overconfident transit properly. Exercise, housecleaning, studying subjects like psychology, or conducting research are the best ways to concentrate our energy with this alignment.
6/9 Mercury Sextile Neptune: Metaphysical Communication
Mercury and Neptune will connect in a high vibrational configuration causing mitigation with some of the week's more unpleasant energies.
Energetically, this aspect is fantastic for interacting with people appropriately and showing our sincere concern for the effects of our words on those around us.
A vibe like this is excellent for feeling inspired when they are in this aspect. We’ll crave mental stimulation and convos with others through philosophy, literature, music, art, or poetry.
Under this transit, we might feel the urge to reconnect with our high vibrational side. Therefore, it will be a day to explore ways to get back on track to return to spiritual practices.
6/10 Sun Sextile Chiron: Healing Ego Wounds
We’ll get the urge to work on our sense of self and old ego wounds with a transit between the Sun and Chiron.
One of the beneficial themes this transit brings is it helps point out ways to improve our self-esteem. So, if your confidence has been low, this is a great way to feel motivated to work on boosting your ego healthily.
With this alignment, we can rediscover skills that we may have put on hold because we felt insecure and unmotivated. Therefore, if you've been having a block with your creativity, now might be the time to feel inspired and get back in a flow state.
And we could also feel encouraged to pay it forward and assist those who might not feel good about themselves. To help your friends, family, or coworkers understand that they have value to contribute, a vibe like this is excellent for giving others a pep talk.
The 11th is an ultra-concentrated day of transits which will cause Sunday to feel more dynamic than usual. And it will be a day of mixed bag aspects causing us to feel like our moods are fluctuating.
6/11 Pluto Retrogrades Back Into Capricorn: Hitting The Rewind Button To Review The Last Year ½
Pluto did its short stint in Aquarius for 2023, and now we’re back for some of the lessons we need to wrap up in Capricorn. Because of the orbit of this celestial body, it will go in and out of Aquarius until settling fully on November 19th, 2024.
For this reason, we will review issues that need to be transformed from February 2nd, 2022.
Because of this, we will go back that far to examine the themes of Pluto reaching 27 degrees last year. This inverse cycle helps us examine our lives to determine what needs to change and how to create better-coping mechanisms.
So, situations that have accumulated concerning removing scenarios that have worn out their welcome will be our primary focus. Hence, it could be a phase to let go of situations that no longer serve us collectively and individually.
Because Pluto governs things that happen underneath the surface, we may also deal with complex problems swept under the rug and resolve issues we have neglected. To put it another way, things like repressed emotions, control issues, compulsions, and letting go of destructive patterns will come up to be resolved.
Also, this celestial body went into its retrograde shadow on January 7th, 2023, so circumstances from that timeline will also be up for review. Pluto has long regressive periods because it is a far-off planet; it turns direct on October 11 and leaves post-shadow RX on January 29, 2024.
The cardinal modality, which includes Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, will be most affected by this retrograde between 27 and 29 degrees of these signs.
The inverse phase will also impact the zodiac signs at the start of the fixed modality. Therefore, those with Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius placements between 0 and 2 degrees of these signs will feel this transit more strongly.
The Pluto In and Out Of Aquarius dates:
- Enters Aquarius March 23, 2023
- Retrogrades Out of Aquarius June 11th, 2023
- Re-enters Aquarius on January 20th, 2024
- Retrogrades Out September 1st, 2024
- Forward in Aquarius November 19th, 2024 and stays entirely in Aquarius until May 8th, 2043
6/11 Mercury Trine Pluto: Intriguing Thoughts And Convos
Right before Mercury finally leaves Taurus after an extended stint, it will make a constructive transit with Pluto.
A vibe like this is excellent for finishing tasks we started but couldn’t complete due to feeling scattered. So, if we need help focusing, this is excellent for being detailed oriented and paying attention. With this configuration, we feel more pressure to work on letting go of negative thoughts from our minds, developing coping skills, and realizing the value of speaking up when necessary.
An alignment like this is ideal for effective interpersonal communication.
Therefore, we might feel more receptive to in-depth discussions, have the urge to connect with others on a soul level, and are less likely to talk over people under this transit. And this is great for finding out information, understanding the truth, and learning interesting but profound aspects of life.
6/11 Mercury Enters Gemini: Seeking Mentally Stimulating Chats
Mercury will shift out of Taurus and enter its home sign of Gemini, the twins allowing us to double our fun and pleasure.
A pairing like this shifts the tenor of thought and communication while it is in Gemini. For this reason, we will feel more open to new ideas and need constant stimulation, primarily intellectual but also playful. Another significant theme will be our capacity for flexibility in our opinions because Gemini is all about objectivity.
There will be a strong urge to mingle with those you haven't spoken to in a while to catch up due to the social nature of this pairing. Getting out and having a good time will be important because this transit has a fun and gregarious nature, which is one of its appealing qualities.
6/11 Mars Sesquiquadrate Neptune: Unexplained Irritability
The rest of Sunday is jammed packed with transits with a plethora of planets connecting in complex forms.
Mars and Neptune are in a problematic transit that could have us feeling more irritable than usual due to the edgy tone of this configuration. One of the themes that come up is feeling frustrated because we’re experiencing sluggishness and temperament fluctuations. Also, we might feel too foggy to take action due to the impairing nature of this alignment.
6/11 Sun Semisextile Uranus: A Sudden Shift In Confidence
Some of the other energies of the day could cause us to go from drained one moment to on pins and needles the next.
Due to the Sun's semisquare to Uranus, there may be a sense of nervousness and self-consciousness.
Because we worry that others won't understand us, a transit like this can also make us uneasy around people. As a result, we might have a sudden shift in confidence and have a hard time expressing ourselves.
6/11 The Sun and Venus making alignments Jupiter: Expressing A Lot Of Hot Air
The Sun and Venus will make complex transits to Jupiter, causing us to act over the top.
These connections to Jupiter contrast the Mars and Uranus configurations, so on the one hand, it could mitigate the uncertainty from those alignments. On the other hand, we could vacillate from self-conscious to grandiose.
With these connections, we could feel in a celebratory mood causing us to seek adventurous activities. We could also be in the mood to have a get-together or attend parties because it promotes participating in social plus feel-good activities.
However, these planets connected to Jupiter in this way could cause us to go overboard in love life, finances, and our ego. So, we must be mindful of overindulging with food or drink, spending more than we should, and grandiose behavior.
Vibes For The Week
This week's vibes reflect the mixed-bagged transits we’ll experience over the next 7 days.
Solitude begins on Monday, along with mental energy, which will peak and valley through the week. While this vibe occurs, it will intersect emotional sensitivity and romance on the 6th. For this reason, the first two days of the week could have moments of flirtiness but also an uneasy feeling that causes us to need space from others.
By the 9th to the 11, mental vibes will intersect with imagination and confusion, psychic energy, and social, and family and friends. The weekend has a potent amount of transits causing us to feel like our moods are fluctuating. For this reason, we could feel like we’re on a high one moment but then on a low the next, then back to feeling euphoric.
