As my beloved late husband used to say: “The greatest expense in life is failure to pay attention.” You’d do well to remember that as you traverse this most beautiful of early summer months. June holds a solar eclipse, Mercury retrograde and Summer Solstice. That’s a lot of cosmic energy — and a lot of Gemini energy in particular. Gemini’s job is to connect the dots and to communicate ideas clearly. With Mercury retrograde that could be problematic. The best way to navigate this month is to set your intention.
Mercury is retrograde in Gemini as the month begins and stays that way until June 22, just after Summer Solstice.
On the 2nd, think “Home Sweet Home” when loving Venus enters Cancer.
Mark your calendars in red June 3rd to June 7th (possibly even as long as June 14) when feisty Mars opposes transformative Pluto. This could be a dangerous time as the energy is immense, and it could also be a period of great progress. Set your intention.
In the middle of this volatile period is a solar eclipse. June 10 is a New Moon, solar eclipse at 19 degrees of Gemini. Mars is poised to change signs immediately after this celestial event and dreamy Neptune squares the lunation. This a rich time full of potential that brings delayed results and could be subject to confusion. Be very clear with your intention and recognize that not all the details are in. Don’t rush off half-cocked, keep your head screwed on and yet listen in. Yes, you’ve got mail! There’s an important message for you in your inner-box. Meditate, pray, make art, write poetry, do all the things you know to do to access your inner wisdom. It wants to guide you. Let it.
The very next day on June 11th, fiery Mars enters bold Leo. Watch your confidence increase! Keep your intention pure as your will power strengthens.
June 12th through the 17th rules and regulations continue to undergo massive change. Earth changes in the form of storms and earthquakes are likely as Saturn and Uranus square each other. Remember, this is a major theme of this year as political, social and environmental issues rise up for acknowledgement and healing.
Late on Sunday June 20th, the Sun enters Cancer at Summer Solstice lengthening the days and bringing our attention to those we love.
On the 22nd Mercury turns direct. It’s okay to plan ahead.
June 23rd to 24th Venus and Pluto oppose one another. This is a good time to check that your lifestyle is in alignment with your values.
Capricorn Full Moon on June 24th reminds you that you can only do so much, and that you have responsibilities.
Things lighten on the 26th when Venus enters Leo to join her boyfriend Mars. Party time!
The month ends as Mercury reaches the eclipse point. Those delayed seeds are starting to show themselves. Mars opposes Saturn, pace yourself. You will get there and yes, there are consequences for your actions.
That’s it folks, thanks for reading.
Remember: you matter, we’re all connected, Earth is our home and love is our destination.
