June starts out with an intense New Moon in Gemini on 6/3. The Sun and Moon are conjunct in Gemini, with the Moon opposing Jupiter in Sagittarius, and square to Neptune in Pisces. This is a cosmic invitation to overextend yourself. Decline the invitation. Neptune in a square aspect represents illusion, denial, confusion, deceit. Avoid substances. Don’t allow your empathy to hijack you. Strengthen your faith and your boundaries.
6/4 and 6/5 have the Moon in Cancer, the nurturing sign. The Moon conjuncts Mercury, the planet of communications, on 6/4, as Mercury moves into Cancer. This is an excellent aspect of self care. 6/9 is also good, a day of inspiration and insights, and a willingness to move forward.
June 10th is complicated, with the Moon at the end of Virgo forming two powerful trines, one to Pluto in Capricorn, and the other to Saturn, also in Capricorn. This strengthens the will, held in the Kidneys, in Chinese medicine, and gives patience and tenacity. This time, the Moon opposes Neptune in Pisces, rather than the opposition it made to Jupiter on the New Moon. It’s going to square Jupiter in Sagittarius now. This is somewhat similar to the dynamics of 6/3. The opposition to Neptune indicates a lot of spin doctoring going on in the world. This may trigger people who grew up with a family of origin where denial, substances, lying, or evasion of personal responsibility played a role. The two trines offset this, giving the grit and determination to get to the truth. For me, lying is a dealbreaker. Honor and integrity mean everything, love and lies cannot coexist. If you choose to live from love, dishonesty is not a part of your journey. This aspect reveals and exposes lies. Good.
June 14th is fabulous. The Moon in Scorpio is doing the happy dance, trining Neptune, trining Mercury, trining Mars, and sextiles both Saturn and Pluto. Wow. Inspiration, grace, wisdom, and alchemy. It doesn’t get any better than this.
The Full Moon is on 6/17. It isn’t as powerful as the New Moon, but it does offer a Trine to Uranus, the planet of genius, originality, and eccentricity. Be as eccentric as possible.
Okay, a heads-up for 6/19. The Moon conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. That, in and of itself, is fine. Intense, but that happens every month. This month, Mars joins the party, opposing both of them. Here’s what that could look like. Mars is the planet that rules a lot of things, fire, weapons, passion, anger, fighting. Pluto rules the subconscious mind, the will, force, bullying, coercion. On a global level, this is not a warm, fuzzy group of aspects. Especially with the demon currently occupying the Oval Office. His corruption is being exposed. That can make a malignant narcissist totally lose their shit. This is a volatile cluster of aspects. On a personal level, don’t engage with narcissists. Avoid drama. Lay low. Monitor your Throat Chakra. Do boundary work with abusive people, but only to the degree necessary. Things escalate quickly with these planets. People with hidden rage issues come out of the woodwork with this grouping. This is not the day to flip people off on the road. Trust me.
6/21 is the Summer Solstice, where the Sun enters Cancer, and summer officially begins. The 21st and 22nd are lovely. What a relief after 6/19. The month closes out with some lovely aspects on 6/27,6/28, and 6/29.
Things are blooming, things are blossoming. The hummingbirds are enjoying my feeders. Here in the mountains, life is magical, the streams are flowing, the sounds of the peepers fill the evenings. The bears are wandering around, so no bird feeders for us. Not unless we want bears on our deck again. May this month bring you fun, laughter, cookouts, barbecues, the joys of nature, good friends, and most of all, love. Blessings, Judith
