This week we get a once-a-year phenomenon: a pre-summer solstice waxing moon. With the next full moon happening on June 17 and the upcoming solstice on June 21, a double dose of high-vibe cosmic voltage permeates life. The long days and moonlit nights ask you to experience the vibrant yang energy available. Expect to feel creative surges and explicit knowledge regarding what you want to accomplish.
In the words of Queen Bey, “Okay ladies, now get into formation.” The week ahead offers the capacity to slay. Simultaneously, it also asks you to stay mindful and conscientious, too.

The week kicks off on Monday with a waxing quarter moon—which marks the halfway point between last week’s new moon and the upcoming full moon—in Virgo. This particular waxing quarter moon happens way early in the morning on Monday or Sunday night, depending on your whereabouts in the world. And it forms a grand mutable cross with the sun in Gemini, and Jupiter in Sagittarius (which oppose one another), while the moon in Virgo opposes Neptune. (Neptune simultaneously squares the sun and Jupiter, too. Hence, the grand mutable cross.)
Translation? This waxing quarter moon asks you to not just focus on the details, but to center yourself on your spiritual purpose. You could wake up feeling behind, not enough, or just straight-up nervous. If so, trust that this too shall pass while staying service-driven and kind to yourself.
More importantly, do not skip your morning meditation practice. Waking up, slamming coffee, and getting straight to work, is guaranteed to leave you feeling frazzled. Instead, sit on your meditation pillow and om before getting after the day. It’s the perfect way to set the tone for the week ahead.
Plus: Mars in Cancer amps up the go-get-’em vibes
With the waxing moon moving into the sign of Libra on Tuesday and Wednesday, tune into your desires. Simultaneously, Mars in Cancer conjoins the north node of fate and destiny, amplifying ambition, drive, and determination. When it comes to going after what you want, you can sustain the effort required of you now.
You’ve worked so hard to be where you are right now in your psychological and emotional development. Keep going.

On a deeper psychological level, Mars on the north node of fate and destiny can activate intense emotions. So stay aware of what’s emerging for you, and keep guiding yourself toward your highest good. Remember the wise words of Michelle Obama this week: “When they go low, we go high.” Make a commitment to taking the high road this week—no matter what!
