A High Level of Energy
By Misty Kuceris ©2013
As the month of June begins, both Mercury and Venus are in Cancer and out-of-bounds. They will also form grand water trines with Saturn and Neptune as well as cardinal T-squares with Uranus and Pluto retrograde. All of this occurs within the first two weeks of the month giving you the feeling that a lot of energy is coming into your life and you don’t know exactly what to do with it.
When planets are out-of-bounds, they just wander around the universe hoping that you’ll pick up some unusual insights about life. With Mercury that means that you may actually come up with some new ways of looking at things. With Venus it means that you may find yourself understanding other people in a way that you didn’t know was possible.
Globally the entire month of June 2013 could be difficult. On one hand there is an opportunity to take plans and put them into action. On the other hand, there is a lot of strife between various political entities as well as individuals. Problems are really increasing in Europe between those who believe everyone in the Euro Zone needs to agree to one fiscal policy and those believing the national goals are more important. This is another time period when the Euro Zone may collapse.
Even the weather may continue to be one where unexpected storms come up one day in one part of the country while another part of the country is experiencing problems with drought. If this is the case, expect food prices to increase.
Venus enters the sign of Cancer on June 2nd and you start feeling the energy of a grand water trine and a cardinal T-square which Venus will form later in the month. With Venus being in a water sign, it means that you may not always be able to describe your feelings to other people. You may walk into a room and feel their energy, but you may not know how to interpret it. As a result, you may find yourself withdrawing in an attempt to protect yourself. Other people may not understand why you seem a bit withdrawn. And, you may not even understand it yourself.
Mercury forms a grand water trine on June 3rd when it forms a trine to Neptune in the late afternoon, EDT, and a trine to Saturn retrograde a few hours later. This trine occurs at 5 degrees which is important because Jupiter in the United States chart is at 5 degrees in Cancer. This could mean that more scandals are revealed. Or, it could mean that the country is seeking a way to form better rules and regulations.
While you may be optimistic about things today, this is not the time to sign any contracts. You just won’t get all the information that you need. Also, don’t believe everything that you hear, especially in the media. Information is being distorted to present the best possible side of any story.
June 7th is such a busy day astrologically that you may want to mark it in your calendar. Events that occur today could have an impact on plans that you want to make in your life and actions that you will need to take later in the month.
The day starts with Neptune turning stationary direct. Normally this might not be that important because you don’t always feel the energy of this motion. However, Venus will form a trine to Neptune retrograde and a trine to Saturn retrograde today creating another grand water trine at 5 degrees, the degree number of Jupiter in Cancer in the USA chart. The day will increase in intensity as Mercury forms an opposition to Pluto retrograde and Mars forms a sextile to Neptune retrograde. The opposition that Mercury forms to Pluto retrograde will be the start of a cardinal T-square which Mercury will complete on June 8th when it forms the square to Uranus.
Because the United States is seen as a savior by some countries and a devil by others, you may find that the country is being pulled into a conflict which calls for military actions. That might seem unusual for a grand water trine involving Venus, but Pluto and Mars are also involved in the mix. It could also represent some financial crisis on a global level which requires some assistance from the United States government or there could be a major oil spill on a prominent waterway.
Personally, June 7th could be very interesting. If you are a water sign, Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces, you may feel that you’ve just met the love of your life. While that may be true, be very careful with new relationships. You won’t know until next month whether this person is being truthful with you or creating an illusion in your life.
Even if you don’t meet the love of your life today, this will be a very emotional day for you. You’ll be asked to help a friend. Or, you’ll feel as if it’s time to implement some of your dreams and not let anyone else stand in the way. As a result, you may decide that it’s actually time to end some relationships.
Your physical energy may be very low with Mercury forming the opposition to Pluto retrograde and Mars forming the sextile to Neptune retrograde. It that’s the case, don’t worry. Just go with the flow. If you try to make things happen, you’ll feel frustrated.
Mars forms a quincunx to Saturn retrograde before the new Moon occurs on June 8th and Mercury forms a square to Uranus after the new Moon occurs completing the cardinal T-square that it began the day before. Both of these energies will be part of the new Moon energy. In addition, the grand water trine that occurred with Venus, Neptune retrograde, and Saturn retrograde will also be part of the new Moon energy.
This new Moon, which occurs with both the Sun and Moon in Gemini, is a time period where you need to understand your personal goals. You have dreams and they are important. At the same time, you may feel hampered by the past events or commitments. You want to break free. This is a good day to pull back and reflect on both your dreams and your commitments. Are the commitments something that you need to maintain because they involve your family and livelihood? Do these commitments involve activities which are no longer important to you? Are you maintaining these commitments because of some false sense of obligation? Or, are you maintaining these commitments because you need to?
New starts can be critical at the time of a new Moon because you have the energy of the universe supporting you. However, you need to understand why you’re taking action when the new Moon is in Gemini. You also need to get as many facts as possible. This is a time to bring heart and mind together. When you understand what you need, it will be easier to take action.
Today your family and friends may not understand why you’ve made some of the choices that you have. But they will understand on June 10th when Mercury forms a trine to Chiron. You’ll be able to explain just how healing your decisions are. You may be tempted to side step any discussions since Mercury is in Cancer. However, it’s very important that you address them with your loved ones. You don’t need to tell the entire world why you’ve made some choices, but you do need to let your family know.
Both June 11th and June 12th will be intense days. Venus creates a cardinal T-square on these two days. First Venus forms an opposition to Pluto retrograde on June 11th. Next, Venus forms a square to Uranus on June 12th. Sandwiched in between these two aspects is the trine formed by Saturn retrograde and Neptune retrograde which also occurs on June 11th.
As Venus starts the cardinal T-square on June 11th with the opposition to Pluto retrograde, it’s important that you examine your life and see if you’re doing what you want or you’re doing what other people want. You need to remove yourself from manipulating and controlling people. You also need to protect yourself financially as the stock market will be very erratic for the next two days.
When Saturn retrograde forms a trine to Neptune retrograde a little more than one hour later, you may feel that it’s important to get some form of structure in your life. Saturn represents the need to set rules while Neptune represents the need to just float through life and accept what’s happening. So the question is: Should you break the rules in order to achieve what you want? Or, do you need to create new rules in order to achieve what you want? You need to develop an understanding of what’s important in your life and set up a structure for achieving that. You may want to look back to what occurred on October 11, 2012 when this aspect occurred for the first time. You may have actually been dealing with similar issues at that time. And, it’s important to address these questions now. If you don’t, you’ll be dealing with the same matters on July 19, 2013 when the aspect occurs again.
With Venus forming the square to Uranus on June 12th, you’ll find it easier to let go of matters that are no longer important to you. That includes any relationships in your life. If people have been manipulating and controlling, you’re finally able to say “enough!” What’s important right now is that you have people in your life who share the same values and commitments to individual freedom as you do.
Mercury returns in bounds on June 13th. It went out-of-bounds on May 20, 2013. When it was out-of-bounds you may have felt that you couldn’t really focus. It that was the case, you’ll find mental clarity returning. Or, perhaps you were able to be very creative about some new concepts but you couldn’t seem to get it down in writing. You’ll be able to do that now.
June 14th could be a beautiful day as Venus forms a trine to Chiron. You feel good about yourself. You feel the love that surrounds you. If you’ve had difficulty with others, you’ll be able to resolve those problems.
It’s important to move slowly on June 15th when Mars forms a quincunx to Pluto retrograde. If you move too quickly, you may find yourself involved in power struggles. You may feel that other people are trying to take advantage of you. This is not a time to try and fight your way out of situations. Other people may enjoy the fight but they won’t be willing to find solutions. So, any fighting becomes a lose situation for everyone involved. Just walk away. You can make your point on another day.
When Chiron turns stationary retrograde on June 16th, you have the opportunity to look back at past events and see if you need to make any amends. It’s also an important time period to be very careful in your interactions with other people. They may be over sensitive and misinterpret your meanings or actions. Try to have compassion for other people even if you don’t totally understand their situation.
When Mars is forming a sextile to Uranus on June 17th, you need to be very careful. This can be a volatile aspect. It’s too easy for accidents to happen. People may want to fight because they are enjoying the game. On the other hand, you may find that you are willing to try new things which could bring some success into your life. Just don’t move too quickly because you could miss some important details.
Venus returns in bounds on June 18th. It went out-of-bounds on May 24th. You may have felt that no matter how much you tried, you just couldn’t get your financial house in order. Now you’ll be able to. You may have also felt that other people weren’t appreciating or respecting you. But now you’ll see that other people really do care.
If you took too many risks on June 17th when Mars formed a sextile to Uranus, you’ll be able to recover from any negative actions on June 19th when Mars forms a sextile to Chiron. This is a good day to just be aware of your body and what you need to do to take care of it. This is also a good time to start any type of health care program to improve your life.
When the Sun enters Cancer on June 21st, one quarter of the astrological year has concluded. In the northern hemisphere this is the time for the summer solstice, when the Sun is at its greatest length in the sky.
As with the Spring equinox chart on March 20, 2013, the Ascendant in the chart set up for Washington, DC is in Pisces. This means that a lot of information is still not being revealed to the mass public. Now Neptune, which rules the Ascendant, is retrograde indicating that even more information is not being revealed. Perhaps you have a sense of déjà vu: Things are repeating themselves.
Jupiter, the other ruler of Pisces, is found on the nadir in this chart. People need to focus on things at home. That’s true for you personally as well as for the United States as a whole.
While the trine between Saturn retrograde and Neptune retrograde is separating, the energy of this trine is still in effect. It’s time to rethink the rules. What worked in the past isn’t working now. New rules need to be developed.
The energy of the cardinal T-square created by Mercury and Venus are moving into the past as well. So, there could be a sense of calmness. However, the Sun will create its own cardinal T-square with Pluto retrograde and Uranus so you still need to be careful that you’re not just reacting to information. You need to have some sort of plan if you want to succeed. That’s true for the country as well. It needs to have a plan that incorporates new ideas in alignment with old concepts.
Venus and Mercury just separated from a conjunction and this can bode well for people being willing to communicate. While there is some strive in this chart, there is also a gentleness that can bring some hope for the future.
When Ceres enters the sign of Leo on June 22nd, women want to roar. They want to stand up for their rights. They don’t want to be told what to do. They want to be the leaders. This is a time period when you need to tune into the warrior aspect of your personality. This is not the time to be shy even if you feel a little uncomfortable standing up for your rights.
When the full Moon occurs on June 23rd, it is the closest to the earth during this year. The tides will rise higher and emotions may be more stressed. You’ll feel the energy of the cardinal T-square since the Sun is in Cancer and the Moon in Capricorn. At the same time, the Sun will also create a grand water trine with Saturn retrograde and Neptune retrograde. This can be a period of initiation for you where you consider what’s important in your life and move forward with your plans. Plus some of those plans may mean leaving things behind or throwing out what is no longer needed. The key to success with your plans is to balance your work and family lives.
Jupiter enters the sign of Cancer on June 25th and will remain in Cancer until July 16, 2014. This is a cycle that occurs approximately every 12 years and lasts for about 13 months.
When Jupiter enters the sign of Cancer home becomes more important. This will be good for the housing market which will improve. At the same time, people become more conservative. They want to have a secure environment. They don’t like all the changes that are occurring in the world. They would rather things stay the same.
Jupiter entering the sign of Cancer is very important for several other reasons: It will create a cardinal T-square with Uranus and Pluto which culminates in April 2014. It will create a grand water trine with Saturn and Neptune which will occur in July 2013. Finally, Jupiter is in Cancer in the United States chart which means the United States will experience a Jupiter return in the early part of July 2013.
It’s very important that you establish close relationships with your family, friends, and neighbors. This is not the time for isolation. Community is important. Even the community formed by social media becomes more important. Because family becomes more important when Jupiter enters Cancer, you may be more concerned about your security and safety. That’s why it’s so important to know your community. If you don’t know the people around you, you may become fearful.
Your work environment also tends to become an extension of your family when Jupiter is in Cancer. You may find that you expect too much from people you work with. Or, you may find that your employer does become more concerned for your personal welfare. The other thing that you’ll find is that more people are concerned about their privacy. While data mining continues on the internet and through social media, there are also more laws which seek to protect you from the information that is out there. Pay attention to these laws so you can make certain you are protecting your privacy from public invasion.
Mercury turns stationary retrograde on June 26th and will remain retrograde until July 20, 2013. Mercury isn’t usually comfortable in the sign of Cancer because it emphasizes the importance of listening. However, when Mercury is retrograde, listening is one of the most important things to do. Also, you want to understand not only what people are saying but the feelings behind their words. With Mercury retrograde in Cancer you’ll be able to do that.
Secrets will also become very important with Mercury retrograde in Cancer. Privacy will be important. Perhaps some new laws regarding the protection of your privacy will be passed or at least considered.
Venus enters the sign of Leo on June 27th. This is where you need to learn how to announce yourself. It’s important to let other people know about the good things that you’re doing in life. It’s also important to let other people do special things for you. While some people may think that the diva is coming out, maybe it’s time you let it. This is especially true since Venus will form a conjunction to Ceres on June 30th. When Venus and Ceres form a conjunction, especially in Leo, it’s all about understanding how to celebrate life and have fun. It’s also about understanding the feminine side of your personality and how you can pull more relationships into your life.
