June Monthly Update
June will be quite an active month with lots of planets entering their Retrograde cycles. This is going to really slow things down folks. First, off Mars, the planet that helps motivate us goes Retro on the 26th, and both Jupiter and Saturn are already in their Retrograde cycles, therefore change is a strong factor in the June Forecast.
Also, Neptune, the planet of spirit and dreams is starting to slow down as it gets ready for its Retrograde cycle on June 18th, this can be a wake-up call, where we have an opportunity to see where reality has been distorted by our own ideals. The truth of what’s really been going on just might surprise you.
On June 13th, the New Moon in curious Gemini give us a chance to plant some seeds of change, and this puts our focus more so on how the power of our thoughts, words, and ideas shape our reality! This energy can help teach you that the way to shift your circumstances is to view your problems from a new or different perspective. Under this Gemini energy, we get the opportunity to see just how this works! We have a chance to use these Gemini energies to view many different perspectives all at one time and gain a greater understanding of how we think or view our lives and situations.
If you feel like you are in a rut or stuck in some way in your life, you can allow this New Moon energy to help you, by taking some time to pause and reflect on your thoughts about what’s been happening and to make necessary changes to your life. Maybe these actions will lead to new and improved outcomes.
On June 15th we will have to deal with mental Mercury’s opposition or connection to Saturn, this means we may have to make some sort of new commitment towards our responsibilities, or an important decision will need to be made at this time around what we are supposed to be doing. With Mercury in the sign of the crab, Cancer, many of you will have to make these decisions around your family or other close relations, home, or real estate. Actually, this Mercury/Saturn energy can help us think much more realistically about our current circumstances. But it also can cause some of you to feel extremely negative or overly critical, cynical, or judgemental in your thinking. It will be important during this time to make sure and not react without really thinking things through first.
The Sun will shift from chatty Gemini, the information collector of the Zodiac, into more withdrawn Cancer on the 21st, which also marks the Summer Solstice. This symbolizes our need to plant roots and to figure out just where we belong in this world, but the Cosmos may not be as cooperative as we would like, and we can feel moody and pensive during this time.
There also is an opposition between the “Cosmic Lovers” of the Zodiac, Venus, and Mars at this time. This energy can churn up our emotional state around what we desire or what we feel we are lacking in our lives, and this is mainly in our intimate relationships. This can cause your resentments to rear their ugly head, but that just means to watch how you treat your partners, loved ones, and close friends. Watch also for a lack of appreciation around what you have to do in life. Be grateful!
The Full Moon on June 27th can be a very strong dramatic turning point for us, as it is in Capricorn, the sign of completion and consequences, and is ruled by rule-maker Saturn. This Moon is closely joining Saturn the “Lord of Karma” during this time, and this can mean this lunation can have a strong sobering tone to it, so many folks might not feel quite like celebrating like usual under the Full Moon energy. But I say CELEBRATE anyway, there are many other Cosmic Connections happening which we can feel grateful for. This energy can help us gain clarity on our priorities and helps us realign with the energies of what is most meaningful to us in life. Which in turn, can help us focus on our jobs, relationships, and other pressing issues that need our attention.
All in all, June seems to be shaping up to help us see what we are supposed to be working towards, while we gain a very realistic view around the things we are doing in life. This can help us get ourselves more organized and right with what matters, and even though it may not be the most fun month of 2018, it can help us concentrate just enough on our responsibilities so we can play and enjoy our lives more so in the months to come.
Have A Good Month, Folks!
