So many choices, so much to do. June brings us quickly changing energy and many facets of experience. This month this focus is on Gemini until summer solstice June 21st, and then the focus shifts to homey Cancer. For the first part of the month you get a chance to explore the environs of your own mind. You get to see inside your own head and marvel.
Things start off on solid ground when the Moon connects with warm Venus, both in earthy Taurus. This bodes well for a month filled with energy. June 2nd Venus connects in a loving way with powerful Pluto lending depth to your values.
The Gemini New Moon early on June 3rd (4:00 AM MT) brings a rush of ideas and stimulation your way. There are so many possibilities! Keep your focus on what means the most as the very next day, June 4th, little Mercury leaves Gemini for loving Cancer. It’s highly likely that whatever seeds you plant will be invested in your homelife in some way. This shift brings a new level of emotionality to the foreground and communications become kinder and more heart centered.
The week unfolds in a measured way until Venus makes a move on the 8th by entering Gemini (Venus is Gemini’s ancient ruling planet). This lifts our spirits and makes adventure enticing.
Don’t get too carried away though as on the 9th the Sun, Moon and Neptune square one another bringing a sense of lethargy or even illness. Keep your immune system strong and rest if you can.
Things feel over the top on the 10th when the Sun opposes abundant Jupiter. Take smaller bites!
The 11th through the 13th forgiveness and grace occur as Mars trines Neptune. Suddenly all those dreams seem doable.
Reality hits the 14th – 16th when Mars opposes hard-headed Saturn reminding you that there are limitations. Work toward your goal patiently to avoid frustration. But things don’t stop there – Mars continues on to oppose powerful Pluto from the 16th to the 20th giving you plenty of energy and will power to move forward on projects. Mercury jumps into the mix on the 18th suggesting aggressive talk and/or diplomacy based on nationalism.
Father’s Day and things are a little fuzzy as Jupiter and Neptune square one another. Ask yourself how much is enough? This is excellent for setting lofty goals and making inspiring plans.
The Sagittarian Full Moon early on the 17th (2 AM MT) can bring hard news. Chatty Mercury opposes shadowy Pluto. This is great for digging out poison but hard on a relationship. As they say in the South, “no need to dig up snakes just to kill them. Pretty soon they slither out on their own.” Besides, with Neptune involved, no one knows what’s true anyway. Again, keep that immune system strong.
Mars and Pluto face off on the 18th through the 19th involving both Mercury and the Moon. This allows for a natural excavation of those deeper levels and hopefully doesn’t mean hard aggressive talk between nations or family members. This best thing you can do now is be kind and work hard. You’ll get a lot done.
Summer solstice on the 21st, the longest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere, and the Sun’s move into gentle Cancer (10 AM MT). Also today, Neptune retrogrades turning your dreamworld into a haven. The next four months offer you a rich inner landscape.
Venus opposes abundant Jupiter on the 23rd and both square dreamy Neptune. Another over-the-top energy transit. If there were ever a day for double dessert – this is it! Watch out for careless spending. This energy lingers for the next few days making life fun and full.
On the 26th Mercury leaves Cancer for creative Leo where it will retrograde July 7th to July 31st traveling back from Leo into Cancer. But, for now, we’ve in the clear to move forward on plans.
The month ends with a party atmosphere as Mars prepares to enter Leo to join Mercury. Still, let’s not forget, with the Sun in Cancer now the focus is on those we love.
July brings us Mercury retrograde and an eclipse. Enjoy the last month of spring, the mercurial energy of the young child Gemini and the loving mother Cancer.
