Hidden Insights observes a number of dramatic changes in the heavens as Neptune is highlighted for a second week in a row. The planet of spiritual fog and delusions is hit by both Jupiter and Saturn before turning retrograde at the end of the week. There is also a particularly stunning Full Moon, as well as a harsh opposition between Mars and Pluto. It is the challenge of the week to find order in a sea of uncertainty.
The week begins with Jupiter forming a rare square with Neptune. This aspect forces individuals around the world to face their fears. Here we are able to confront unhealthy patterns in our lives.
As the Moon turns full in Sagittarius on Monday, 17 June it aligns with the fixed star Alculeus. Medieval astrologers observed that this star cause blindness. With the Neptune’s fog, we can expect be unable to see the truth right now even with the clarity of Saturn making a sextile to Neptune on Tuesday, 18 June.
As Mars moves into an opposition with Pluto on Wednesday, 19 June the world divides itself into two forms of expression. Half of the population will argue with everyone in an overly emotional way, while the other half will be inspired to ruthlessly win at any cost.
Neptune stationing retrograde on Friday, 21 June is this week’s biggest event and will remain in a backwards motion until Wednesday, 27 November 2019. This five-month period marks a time where creativity is more easily accessed. Spirituality and fantasy become more important than the typical drudge of the real world. Compassion for others will also be magnified as the desire to nurture the world takes over societies harsher realities.
The world is often obsessed with or places too much emphasis on personal success, physical fitness, and financial stability. As Neptune is activated this week, it is time to focus on one’s emotional and spiritual wellness. Spend time taking stock of your mental wellbeing, and strengthen your spiritual body. There is a great capacity to overcome fear and to break free from negative thought patterns.
This is also a great time to begin therapeutic work with a professional. Even if you don’t enroll in therapy, find new ways to take care of your soul. Spend less time in front of a screen, read about and practice mindfulness, and spend more time in reflective prayer or meditation.

A struggle between your personal and professional lives comes to a head midweek, and you may find it difficult to balance the two. Now is the time for personal sacrifice, as Pluto is about to change the way you earn money. If there is discord in your home, assure those you love that your current workload is only a temporary situation.

Lending money to friends is never a good idea, Aquarius, and especially right now. A person who you feel you can trust may be looking for a personal loan, and your good nature wants to help.

Fortunately, these feelings will not last long, and your relationship will return to its former dynamic fairly quickly. Pets become a central focus midweek, and for those who have animal companions, an increase in aggression may be seen.
