Embrace the Energy

During the month of June there are some astrological energies that you’ll feel on a psychological level. Ceres retrograde in Sagittarius, Chiron in Aries, and Uranus in Taurus are within 4º to 5º of their sign. What this can mean on a psychological level is that you are seeking to understand how new energy coming into your life affects your desire to compromise so you can find healthy solutions in your life. Also during this month, Neptune in Pisces which starts out direct and turns retrograde, Saturn retrograde in Capricorn, Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius, and the Moon’s Nodal Axis are all within 17º to 19º of their signs. Plus, Pluto is found at 22º of Capricorn. What this means is that you may need to develop a structure that enables you to understand how to take your past experiences and create a new dream for your future in a realistic manner.
When the month does begin, Venus forms a quincunx to Jupiter retrograde on June 1st. In many ways, Venus and Jupiter create a similar vibration when it comes to good luck and financial well-being. Venus, especially in Taurus, indicates that having possessions is very important. Jupiter, especially in Sagittarius, indicates that moving forward with your goals, especially your financial and career goals, can generate positive results in your life. Both planets are in the signs of their rulership. However, the fact that they are forming a quincunx indicates that you need to review your goals and make certain that you’re not taking any risks you’ll regret later. This is especially true since Jupiter is retrograde.
Move slowly today. Try to understand what’s important, especially with your career and finances. If you have to take a risk, try to make it a “calculated” risk. This means, assess the potential cost of losing and see if you can afford that loss. By doing that, you’ll determine if the risk is worth it. If it’s not, don’t take the risk.
You’ll understand financial matters on June 2nd when Venus forms a trine to Pluto retrograde. You’ll know what you need for your financial growth. You’ll understand how to budget in a way that helps you become more financially stable.
This aspect also indicates that today is a good day for relationships. You’re able to understand the needs of people you care for, just as they are able to understand your needs. You feel passionate about how you relate to others. You’re willing to give them the support they need, just as they are willing to give you the support your need.
On June 3rd, a new Moon with both the Sun and Moon in Gemini occurs. Understanding how to communicate with others becomes more important. You want to go out and socialize. But, at the same time, you feel conflicted about sharing too much intimate information with other people. The new Moon is forming an opposition to the midpoint of Ceres retrograde and Jupiter retrograde. You’re not certain if you may need to compromise in order to achieve your goals. At the same time, you don’t want other people knowing that you feel unclear about those goals.
Since the new Moon represents a time to evaluate old projects and start new ones, this is an excellent time to make a list of what’s important in your life. In that list, make a note of how you want to achieve any goals. See if you need help from other people. If you do, put the names of those individuals on your list and see if you feel comfortable discussing matters with them.
When Mercury enters the sign of Cancer on June 4th, you become more sensitive to your needs. You don’t want to share too much information with others. You’d rather spend more time with yourself than socialize. This is a good day to relax and reflect.
Ceres represents the importance of understanding your environment and when you need to compromise in order to achieve results. Chiron represents the need to heal from self-inflicted wounds. When Ceres retrograde forms a trine to Chiron on June 6th, you know how to pull back and heal your wounds. You realize that you may need to compromise. You also may need to let other people into your life so they can help you. You don’t need to do everything on your own.
June 7th is a day where Mercury is very active. It forms a sextile to Uranus, a quincunx to Ceres retrograde, and a square to Chiron. Because Mercury is very active, you’ll need to pay attention to various forms of communication: Verbal, written, and visual. What is meant by visual communications is paying attention to the body language and facial expressions of other people when you verbally communicate with them.
When Mercury forms the sextile to Uranus, you receive new information. Pay attention to this new information because it can help you solve some problems. At the same time, be cautious in your communication style. It’s more important to listen today than it is to give out information. With all the new facts entering your life, you need to take time to think about things.
As Mercury forms the quincunx to Ceres retrograde, you may find yourself in a situation where you have to change your approach. With the new information that came to you, you may need to re-evaluate things. You want to be safe in your environment. At the same time, you don’t want to say things which will lead you to making commitments that you’ll regret later.
Finally, as Mercury forms the square to Chiron, you realize that you don’t want to say anything which can hurt another individual. You want to approach situations carefully. Continue to spend more time listening to what other people have to say.
On June 8th, Ceres retrograde forms a quincunx to Uranus and Venus enters the sign of Gemini later in the day.
With Ceres retrograde forming the quincunx to Uranus, you may feel as if your day is disrupted. You thought you planned out the day, but now situations are arising that are disrupting your plans. You need to move cautiously. You need to pay attention to your environment. You don’t want to place yourself into a situation where you compromise to the point of giving away too much and not getting anything you want. You could be walking into a landmine field if you’re not careful. Do the best you can to proceed with caution.
When Venus enters the sign of Gemini, you feel as if you can resolve all problems through discussion. You value the ability to use words. Even though some people see Venus as an emotional planet, you don’t feel that emotional right now. You’d rather relate to people with logic rather than emotion.
On June 12th, Venus forms an opposition to Ceres retrograde. Both planets represent aspects of the feminine. Venus represents the passionate side of femininity while Ceres retrograde represents the calculating side of femininity. When they form an opposition, you feel as if you are in a fight between your passionate and your logical natures. You don’t want to be taken advantage of, so you put up emotional barriers. At the same time you want to go out into the world and experience what life has to offer. Perhaps this is a good day to review your passions and see if some of the things you thought were important in life aren’t so important any more.
When Venus forms a sextile to Chiron on June 13th, you have a better understanding of what’s important to you. You are willing to take care of your needs. You find ways to treat yourself fairly. Today is actually a good day to relax. Maybe make it a spa day. Or, maybe take time to go somewhere that’s pleasant and doesn’t require a lot of commitments.
Mars is very active on June 14th. It forms a trine to Neptune, an opposition to Saturn retrograde, and a quincunx to Jupiter retrograde. With all this energy, it may seem counter-intuitive, but you may actually want to put off taking any action today.
When Mars forms the trine to Neptune, you may want to go after your dreams. Yet, you don’t have all the facts so you may not know which path to take.
As Mars forms the opposition to Saturn retrograde, you may actually resent any structure that is preventing you from moving forward with your dreams. You may feel that other people are confining you and you don’t like it. You may need to re-evaluate the various barriers in your life to determine who put them there: You or someone else.
When Mars forms the quincunx to Jupiter retrograde, you realize that you need to make changes to your plans. You can’t keep going forward with the direction you chose before.
With Mercury forming the conjunction to the Moon’s North Node on June 15th, it’s easier for you to come up with some future plans. You realize that it’s time to release any fears you have from your past and move on. You may be able to write in a journal to release those fears. Or, you may find someone you can talk to who helps you resolve some old problems so you can move on with your life.
Before Jupiter retrograde forms a square to Neptune on June 16th, Mercury makes three important aspects: Mercury forms a trine to Neptune, a quincunx to Jupiter retrograde, and an opposition to Saturn retrograde.
As Mercury forms the trine to Neptune, you want to understand your dreams and find ways to discuss them with other people. You are able to approach situations in a creative manner. At the same time, you may feel as if you can’t trust other people with your secrets. So, on one hand, you want to discuss matters with others. On the other hand you don’t want to tell them a thing. This is where being creative can help. You may be able to put your thoughts into some form of artistic representation and see how other people react. This could give you insight into whether they are trustable to discuss your dreams.
When Mercury forms the quincunx to Jupiter retrograde, you realize that you need to make changes to your long-term approaches. The plan of action you had may no longer work. If that’s the case, take your time to develop a new plan of action.
As you consider developing a new plan of action, you may resent any barriers in your life. This is especially true today with Mercury forming the opposition to Saturn retrograde. You may even feel that other people are preventing you from success. But, it’s important to realize who placed those barriers there: You or someone else. Once you know who, you’ll be able to move on with your life.
After Mercury makes those various aspects, Jupiter retrograde forms a square to Neptune. This is the second time this square is occurring in this triad sequence. The first time it occurred was on January 13th when both planets were direct. The third time it occurs on September 21st, Jupiter will be direct and Neptune will be retrograde.
Both Jupiter and Neptune rule the sign of Pisces. Jupiter also rules the sign of Sagittarius. Technically these planets are well placed because they are in the signs of their rulers. But this square aspect between them indicates tension. Both Jupiter and Neptune represent the desire to move beyond boundaries. Jupiter wants to push the limits and stretch the boundaries. Neptune wants to dissolve boundaries or just ignore them. The tension that you may feel at this time involves boundaries and what they mean in your life. You may feel as if you are letting too much information into your life. You may feel as if you’re doing so much that you aren’t taking enough time for yourself. You may even feel that you’re letting other people determine what you’re going to do with your life. Although these planets indicate the release of boundaries, it’s actually important that you take the time to define the boundaries you need in life so that you can thrive. If you don’t take that time now, you’ll find the same problems occurring in September when this square occurs for the third time.
When the full Moon occurs on June 17th, you feel as if you need to discuss your plans with other people in order to understand your goals. This is because the Sun is in Gemini and the Moon is in Sagittarius. Emotionally you don’t want to do things on your own. But your ego won’t let you take advice from others. It’s important to determine where you need help and what people you can trust to ask for the help. If you can do this, you’ll gain a lot from the advice of others.
When Saturn retrograde forms a sextile to Neptune on June 18th, this is the second time in this triad sequence that this aspect occurs. The first time this sextile occurred was on January 31st when both planets were direct. The last time this sextile occurs is on November 8th when Saturn is direct and Neptune is retrograde.
Saturn represents the ability to set boundaries and use past experiences to achieve your goals. Neptune represents the ability to understand situations outside the realm of possibilities and hope that your aspirations bring the results you seek. When these two planets sextile each other, you have the opportunity to realistically apply your dreams. Perhaps the first time that this aspect occurred in January you had some dreams that you wanted to achieve and you weren’t totally sure on how to begin. If that was the case, now is the time that you’ll find ways to implement your dreams realistically. Or, you may decide that you need to understand more aspects of your dreams and you’re better off waiting until November to put your plans into action.
After Saturn retrograde forms a sextile to Neptune, Mercury forms a conjunction to Mars. While this normally indicates that you feel impatient with what others have to say, it isn’t always that important. However, this conjunction is a precursor to the energy you’ll feel tomorrow. Therefore, pay attention to how you communicate with others. Try not to get into any arguments, if at all possible. And don’t be too aggressive in your interactions with others.
On June 19th, both Mercury and Mars form oppositions to Pluto retrograde. This is because Mercury and Mars formed a conjunction to each other the day before.
When Mercury forms the opposition to Pluto retrograde, you feel as if other people are trying to manipulate you. You don’t feel as if anyone is willing to hear what you have to say. You want to get your way, but it’s not happening.
It’s also important to note that the Moon in Capricorn is forming a conjunction to Pluto retrograde and an opposition to both Mercury and Mars at the time that Mercury is forming the opposition to Pluto. This indicates that there is a lot of emotion circling around your need to discuss situations with others. You feel as if you need to clarify matters, but no one wants to listen. You feel as if you need to set things right, but other people don’t care. This can be a very alienating time period is you try to push your communications.
As Mars forms the opposition to Pluto retrograde you are very frustrated, perhaps even angry. No one is listening to you today. You aren’t getting help from anyone. Now you feel as if you need to do everything on your own if you want to get things done. The key is to move slowly. Don’t push yourself into situations. Try to understand the other person’s point of view. However, if that other person is trying to run a power trip on you, get out of the situation. If you can’t get out of the situation because this other individual is in a power position, keep your mouth shut and remove yourself from that individual’s space as soon as possible.
Neptune in Pisces turns retrograde on June 21st. It will remain retrograde until November 27th. A little more than one hour after Neptune turns retrograde the Sun enters Cancer and the Summer Solstice begins in the Northern Hemisphere.
You may not feel the retrograde motion of Neptune. When planets turn retrograde, it means that the energy needs to be internalized before you can utilize it in the mundane world. With Neptune you are already in a state of reflection. There is no desire to go out into the world and announce your presence. With Neptune in retrograde motion, you may find yourself becoming more reflective. You may also gain a deeper spiritual understanding of your goals in life.
When the Sun enters Cancer on June 21st, you want to spend time nurturing yourself. You want to improve your relationship with your family. Or, you want to find a tribe – a group of people you can relate to. This need to be part of a group is emphasized by the Mars/Mercury conjunction in Cancer which occurred on June 18th.
With Venus approaching an opposition to Jupiter retrograde and a square to Neptune retrograde you feel the energy of a mutable T-square. You’re concerned about your finances. You want to make certain that you’re safe and secure. This is not a time to take any financial risks. Rather create a budget and stick to it. Do the best you can not to make any major purchases that involve signing a contract because you won’t have all the information you need.
Venus forms an opposition to Jupiter retrograde and a quincunx to Saturn retrograde on June 23rd.
With Venus and Jupiter both representing matters that deal with finances, you need to be very careful with your financial situation right now. This is not the time to take financial risks. You don’t want to make any major investments right now. You also don’t want to make any major purchases that involve legal contracts.
This is a good time to review your financial and legal obligations to see if you need to make any changes once Jupiter goes direct in August 2019.
When Venus forms the quincunx to Saturn retrograde, you want to continue making changes to your budget. You want to see how you approach financial matters in your life.
If you feel other people are criticizing you, make certain that your feelings are valid. Sometimes you feel other people are criticizing you and in actuality they are trying to help you. This may be because you’re feeling insecure about your current situation. The key is to be gentle with yourself right now and just listen to what they have to say. You don’t need to take their advice if you feel it’s not valid.
Be very cautious with your financial situation on June 24th as Venus forms a square to Neptune. You don’t want to make any major purchases today. You don’t have all the facts. People are either lying to you outright, or withholding important information that you need in order to make an informed decision.
Also be very careful in your relationships with other people. Again, they are not being as honest as you need them to be. You may think that you’ve met your soulmate, but what you think is there is an illusion.
When Mercury enters the sign of Leo on June 26th, you feel more optimistic about life. You want to go out and play. You don’t want to take anything too seriously. This is a good day for helping your friends or getting help from friends. This is also a good day to play rather than taking yourself too seriously.
You may feel power struggles on June 27th when Venus forms a quincunx to Pluto retrograde. You may even feel that someone is trying to take something important away from you. Be very cautious around other people. Don’t let them suck you into their dramas or traumas. Pay attention to your own needs and make certain they are met.
On June 29th, Mercury forms a trine to Ceres retrograde. This is the first trine in this triad sequence. The second time this trine occurs is on July 18th when Mercury is retrograde and Ceres is direct. The last time this trine occurs is on August 13th, Mercury and Ceres are both direct.
When Mercury forms the trine to Ceres retrograde, you’re interested in how you can improve your environment. You don’t want to take life too seriously. At the same time, you want to bring special people into your life. You don’t want to do things alone. You want to share your life. You also want to embrace your spiritual aspects and those of your family and friends.
