The start of June
June commences with four trines, favorable aspects and interactions that will pave the way for opportunities and open doors. However, be careful not to think too long about your life choices, with two emotional water trines, it is best to follow your sensitivity of your heart as well as your logical senses. The combination of your common sense and intuition is a winning formula always, especially right now.
Week one – June 04-10
Venus is in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn, and this opposition between cardinal signs can spark activity and provide the energy for chance meetings. However, with the Sun and Mercury interactions and both squaring with Neptune, it’s a message not to jump to conclusions. Find out the facts before you agree or disagree to anything. This is a week to certainly be open to the options that may be available to you but not to jump into anything too fast, or with blind optimism.
Week Two – June 11-17
Mercury makes his move to water sign Cancer on the 12th, prompting you to get in touch with your emotions and express them to those closest. The next day on the 13th, the Gemini new Moon, a powerful super-moon, keeps everything fun and light rather than heavy and intense. Later this day, Venus moves to Leo, a social, generous and uplifting placement. However, on the 14th, Venus will square Uranus, a challenging interaction in fixed signs, that can literally force you to move to new ground and leave your past baggage behind. And an opposition between Mercury and Saturn can help you deal with the past and say what’s on your mind to clear the air.
As the Moon moves to Leo to finish this week off, it concludes with a bright happy note that saves you from getting stuck in the emotional shift that has taken place. It would be wise to shake off any unsettled energy and move forward in a more positive and confident place and with a manner of certainty.
Week Three – June 18-24
Neptune goes retrograde on the 18th through to November and on the 19th, Mercury in Cancer will have a favorable interaction with abundant Jupiter in Scorpio. This water trine can expand your thinking in an enlightened way. On the 20th, communication planet Mercury will trine Neptune, another water trine, which future sparks your imagination and creativity.
The 21st, the Sun moves to Cancer, and this also signifies the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere, the beginning of summer, and the longest day of the year. This same day, Venus in Leo is opposite Mars in Aquarius, sparking passion on a personal note and competitiveness where business is concerned. At the end of the week, on the 23rd, Mercury in Cancer, opposite Pluto in Capricorn, is a message to be true to yourself and not to do anything you don’t feel comfortable about.
Week Four – June 25-30
Venus in Leo squares Jupiter in Scorpio on the 25th and this fixed sign challenging aspect can cause you or others to be idealistic and inflexible with your approach and ideas. Mars goes retrograde in Aquarius on the 26th and will stay in this backward motion through to the end of summer giving you a chance to think how you want your life to be and for some, to reinvent yourself.
The full Moon in Capricorn, 27-28th, as well as an opposition between the Sun and Saturn can provide the energy to bring a situation full circle and provide a karmic close. Mercury moves to Leo on the 28th, and will go retrograde next month, July 25th, so these next four weeks are a good time to get organized and move forward with projects and situations, business and personal. The month closes on the 30th with a Mercury Uranus square, which can push you right out of your comfort zone – exhilarating if you embrace it, challenging if not
The next month will commences with three astral trine aspects, including a Sun moon water trine, which will help to settle the energy and provide insights as why your life is like it is.
