Only a couple of days till Summer! As we move forward in the sky, the second half of June is looking a bit stressful. On June 18th Mercury and Saturn are not playing nice. It’s fathers day and could be that Dad is a little cranky or too authoritarian for you liking. Try to be nice, it’s his day, and the planets are messing with everyone. Maybe now would be a good time to have a quiet chat with Dad about how you’re an adult now and he needs to see you as an equal, not a minion. But use your good judgement to determine if you should go there. Evening would be better than mid day. There comes a time in everyone’s life when parents become your equals, your friends. Reach for that goal. Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sag will be especially affected by this energy. Work with spirituality and you will find some helpful answers.
June 19 – Hard Work Will Pay Off
June 19th is a “hard work will show great results” day. Pallas joins Uranus and ideas with a genius quality abound. Also Venus is trine Juno, so love is in the air. On the 20th Neptune furthers romantic love and dreaminess. Take advantage as the tides will turn at the end of the month.
On the 20th a Mars T-Square to Neptune and Pluto begins (the asteroid Juno is here too). Much stress fills the air or the psyche. Our focus becomes heavier and more contentious as the month comes to a close.
June 21 – Sun Into Cancer Making Emotions The Focus
June 21st the Sun moves into Cancer, the Moon child. Emotions, family involvement and home gatherings become the focus now. Emotions are on display a lot more than usual, and be sure to be kind because Moon people are quite sensitive (even if they seem to be able to dish out some cutting comments themselves. Its just the crab shell protecting hurt feelings that were not dealt with, and they may have gotten stuck in anger). Sugar coat your speech and be kind. Mercury moves here too today, so wow what a pack of emotions we’re dealing with. And it’s the first day of Summer. Put your feet up and have a lemonade, because from here on out, the stars are going into serious stress mode. Now all this means is that we need to look within and see/find our part in the stress. How can we change? How can we respond to stress differently? There is a lot of anger out there, how do we NOT get on that train and be an example to others of how to stay calm and move slowly but surely through the craziness?
June 23 – Cancer New Moon Brings Up Past Feelings
June 23rd is a New Moon in Cancer opposing the late Saturn placement in Sagittarius, and squaring Chiron bringing up old hurts. Feelings will run high and much crying could be involved, but its also trine Uranus, which might give you sudden insights into issues you’re wrestling with. The Universe wants us to release our baggage and become free. You can’t change the past, so why not look it in the eye, forgive yourself and everyone else involved, and move on. Letting go is key to being happier, and the experiences hopefully made you wiser and less gullible so you got something good out the pain too. Love yourself and give yourself the gift of forgiveness.
June 25 – Warning: Emotions, Moodiness, And Frustrations Ahead
By the 25th Mercury is in Cancer, Sun in Cancer, Mars in Cancer – we’re in an emotional soup, stressed by Mars who really hates being in Cancer. So we’re emotional and moody. And on this day Mars squares Jupiter – big frustrations day. On the 27th and 28th Mercury joins the T-Square, so expect harsh words to fall out of your mouth or others and land with a bang.
June 29 – Frustration, Ego & Power Take Hold
On the evening of June 29th Mercury, your mind, is opposite Pluto, ego and power. It is a of frustration, even jealousy or envy by you or from others. The next morning the Moon moves into harmonious Libra. A little peace should enter the picture after a few days of stress. It’s time for the 4th of July celebration. Let go of anxiety and have some fun, relax, play and just enjoy being with friends and family.
See you next month. Best to you all, Yvonne
