Thanks for joining me to prepare for an amazing month of June. If you’re a new subscriber, a special welcome to you, and thanks for joining our community.
“Hope” is the primary word that comes to me as I ponder this month’s astrology. Call me biased. As a Gemini, I do LOVE the vibes of Gemini season. There’s a spiritedness, a renewed sense of life bursting through as the spring changes to summer and the sun envelops us (in the Northern Hemisphere) in a warm hug.
This year the seasonal shift to summer coincides with a seasonal shift in our lives. THIS MONTH IS LIKELY TO BRING SOMETHING IMPORTANT YOU’VE BEEN REACHING FOR. The results of choices, changes and commitments made long ago start to surface. Imagine – for example – you made a major career decision some time ago hoping for relief or results that never really followed. By the end of June, that’s likely to change. NOW is the time we’ll begin seeing where our efforts have taken us and where we are going.
Per usual, tense alignments sprinkled over the month add spice to the landscape. Still, I believe some puzzle pieces will “click” for you over the coming weeks.
June kicks off with the most emotionally-charged energy of the month. As Venus approaches its opposition with Pluto, expect intense feelings and intense experiences. Since Venus relates to satisfaction and Pluto is extreme, one thing is for sure: You’ll be clearer than ever which things in your life you’re happy with and which things you’re not. If there truly is a “thin line between love and hate”, this first week of June emphasizes that.
Our feelings are just very pronounced when Venus, the pleasure-seeker within, connects with nuclear reactor Pluto. Sensory experiences are more powerful. On the plus side, you may find yourself entrenched in beautiful moments of passion, intimacy, connection, healing and psychological insight. The flip side of the coin is strong negativity, disappointment, disgust, and repulsion. As with any astrological alignment, I typically find myself having experiences on both ends of spectrum.
The opposition of these planets tends to shine a light on unconscious relationship dynamics too. Deep seated abandonment or attachment issues, fears of betrayal, unresolved trauma or loss, and power dynamics might surface for some of us. The great news is – what we can see, we can fix. Serious situations may call for immediate action. But in many cases, the goal is patient reflection and observing what needs to be seen. Venus’ retrograde next month is the perfect time to begin any personal or relationship work that’s needed! 😊
The middle part of June is a real sweet spot of our year. I’d call it a “double wow” with Jupiter (planet of luck, opportunity and abundance) forming alignments with Venus and Saturn. Around June 11, watch for the Venus-Jupiter alignment to manifest as fortunate opportunities, new partnerships, or big payoffs.
Jupiter and Saturn’s alignment further suggests you’re reaching a stepping stone on the path of life purpose. The Jupiter-Saturn cycle is a slow, 30-year process by which one’s wisdom, skills and life goals come into alignment. We’re hitting a mile-marker within the current 30-year cycle, meaning whatever new paths you’ve taken since December 2020 are finally taking shape up. There’s an enhanced sense of ease and flow as we build towards our goals now. And/or with fewer fires to put out, it’s prime time for rest and vacation.
What’s more, Mercury is in great position mid-June when it travels fast through home sign Gemini. The vibe is useful for socializing, making connections, adaptability, quick thinking, wheeling, dealing, communicating, and just plain fun! If you hit any speed bumps around the June 15th, that’s Mercury square Saturn. Something might demand your attention, force you to stop, perform unexpected work, or fulfill a commitment when you’d prefer playing around or doing other things.
June 18, a New Moon in Gemini in close aspect to Neptune gives us tremendous creative power in thought, communication, sales and storytelling. Mark this date on your calendar for dreaming up / beginning any projects requiring creative communication, like writing, speaking, or marketing.
This is the second volatile aspect of our month. Mars and Uranus in a tense angle signals exciting, impulsive, unpredictable and rebellious vibrations underlying our feelings, experiences, and interactions.
This combo is not just useful – but genius – when purposefully directed. The individualism, gall and ingenuity we’re given is particularly useful for inventors and entrepreneurs. The energy encourages and empowers us to do things in new ways. One might also experience a need for excitement, adventure, sudden change, independence or freedom in some area of life.
Manifesting in more difficult ways, people tend to feel anxious, nervous, distracted and accident-prone during Mars-Uranus. Take deep breaths often, visit the yoga studio, and plan an adventure to give this wound-up energy an outlet.
