We begin the month of June with Mercury retrograde in Gemini and the Last Quarter Phase Moon in Pisces on Wednesday, June 2nd. Clarity continues to be elusive even as Venus enters the sign of Cancer also on June 2nd. Perhaps it will be better to give our logical mind a vacation and focus on trusting our intuition and spiritual guidance. Clarity is likely to return as the Sun trines Saturn on Thursday afternoon June 3rd.
Favorable aspects from the Moon in Aries to Saturn and the Sun indicate ample opportunity to be productive in accomplishing practical tasks on Friday, June 4th. The tide goes out again on Saturday, June 5th as Mercury squares Neptune. Challenging aspects from Mars, the Moon and Pluto also on Saturday suggest potential conflicts and reactionary behavior.
Things quiet down as the Moon enters Taurus and forms positive aspects to Jupiter and Venus on Sunday, June 6th. Jupiter in Pisces invites us to seek spiritual guidance and travel destinations that are relaxing and close to water.
A New Moon/Solar Eclipse occurs in Gemini on Thursday, June 10th. This Solar Eclipse symbolizes an opportunity to improve all forms of dialogue and communication for the next six months. Catching up on paperwork and re-reading our journals could prove beneficial as long as Mercury continues its transit in the sign of Gemini. Mars enters the sign of Leo on Friday, June 11th. Our desire for activities that involve creative self-expression, fun and matters of the heart are enhanced while Mars is in the sign of Leo.
A First Quarter Phase Moon occurs in Virgo on Thursday evening, June 17th. Our awareness of our health, daily routine and work situation may require additional focus and consideration.
Jupiter goes retrograde in the sign of Pisces and the Sun enters the sign of Cancer on Sunday, June 20th. This event symbolizes the beginning of the Summer season and also corresponds with Father’s Day. Family celebrations are obviously encouraged. Mercury goes direct on Tuesday, June 22nd. Full clarity may not be completely available until Mercury moves out of the “shadow” of the retrograde period on July 7th.
A Full Moon occurs in the sign of Capricorn on Thursday, June 24th. An awareness of our goals and objectives for success in career and business ventures is now at hand. Neptune goes retrograde in Pisces on Friday, June 25th. This change in direction indicates the importance of checking in with our spiritual guidance before taking action on our plans for the future. Venus enters Leo on Saturday, June 26th. Our joy will be enhanced through relationships with children and loved ones.
