   Pain is specific. When we bump our shins or crack our elbow on a corner, we know right where it hurts. Stomach ache, headache; all pinpointed.

Difficult alignments, sometimes called hard aspects, usually flush these events. While emotionally they are often more challenging to process, they are also easier to identify celestially. As a result, astrologer's predictions can sometimes seem to focus on the dark side, isolating destruction and despair above the rest. But when attempting to interpret the chart, they are also easier to see and identify in retrospect.

   Smooth aspects, however, don't usually have the same texture, depth, or intensity as hard aspects. They provide opportunities, whether in the form of a new plan, path or pleasure. Their energy is more easily integrated and less obvious. Glowing in the warmth of the Sun can be nice, with the radiance being felt all over. However, trying to convey the power, majesty, and strength of a beautiful day loses much in translation. When sextiles, quintiles, or trines trigger the chart, there is no pitchfork at our back making us act on our plans or forcing us to pay attention to the pain. If we follow through, it works. If we let it slide, it still was a wonderful day.

   This week we have a opportunity to reach out and make some wonderful connections. Talk to folks, knock on doors, or make proposals about where your life can move and you have a better than usual chance of circumstances working out.

   There are a string of aspects which are getting ready to unleash their power, as the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter in Gemini trine Uranus in Aquarius. For those willing to open up and experiment, there is a wide range of excitement and wonder which can now unfold.

   As we begin our WEBWeek, some of these themes are already resonating. The Sun has already aligned with Jupiter, opening up excitement, ideas, and potential. Think about where you're going in life, and what you need to do to get there. Engage in new dimensions, whether through travel, a spiritual evolution, or furthering your education. These are times to expand your ideas by talking to people and gathering consensus. This week, many of these themes will continue to unfold.

   On Friday, June 15th, the Sun trines Uranus. Act on unexplored, creative endeavors, whether in a new friend, discovering a new interest, or even simply looking into yourself. Children are more easily taught, are brighter and more interested. Love discovers new ways to express itself. Liberate your heart. It will take work to implement these designs, especially later in the evening, but the extra effort and resultant fatigue should be worth it.

Sextile

   On Saturday, the Sun conjuncts Mercury and it's time to engage our ideas. Tell them what you think, make a list and get the materials you'll need, or sign contracts and make deals. Take charge, make some decisions.

   On Sunday, Mercury trines Uranus, bringing surprises and good news. On Monday Mercury conjuncts Jupiter, giving us a more positive outlook about how we feel. Then early Tuesday, Jupiter trines Uranus, and the final phase of our plans can be implemented. The New Moon is on Thursday, and you don't want to wait until it's too late in the lunar cycle to initiate new endeavors, so try to jump on this alignment earlier rather than later. Open up your eyes to the beauty that's all around this week and know now is a time to realize the vision dancing right before your eyes.
