June 11 – 17
What to expect: Fun and adventure
What to watch out for: Escaping responsibilities
What will it affect? Work, communication, family talks
On June 11th the Sun in Gemini will sextile Juno in Aries. To be satisfying, our relationships will need to be filled with adventure, communication, and even sport. Doing activities together will be enjoyable, but they may also be distracting. Sometimes distractions are good and sometimes they lead to other problems. This is particularly the case if you have responsibilities to keep.
June 12th Mercury will enter Cancer and then oppose Vesta. Communication shifts to talks about real estate, family and possibly also a family business. The problem is, the opposition to Vesta may make us all talk no action. We talk a big talk without having any real intentions of following through. This is a time to temper your words and not make promises you can’t or won’t deliver on.
Why? Sun Sextile Juno, Mercury Entering Cancer, Mercury Opposition Vesta
Spreading Our Wings
What to expect: Opportunities to fly
What to watch out for: Lack of confidence
What will it affect? Projects, communication, relationships, self-confidence
The Full Moon on June 13th is at 22 degrees of Gemini. The Sabian symbol for this degree is “Three fledglings in a nest high in a tree”. These baby birds may be safe and sound high up in the trees, but at some point, they will have to leave the nest. The only way is to spread their wings and fly. The good news is that they have the ability to hardwired in them. It’s innate! But that’s not to say that they don’t first have to be ready, and second, that the first flight won’t be scary and a bit awkward. Those are both true. At this New Moon, we can set intentions for making our way out into the word. The New Moon is ruled by Mercury and on the same day, Mercury is sextile to Uranus, giving us impulse to spread our wings and fly. The only problem is that Mercury is also square to Chiron making us indecisive and unsure of ourselves. This second aspect is making us want to hold on to the nest! Two things are true. We will never truly be “ready” and so it will behoove you to head the advice “start before your ready”. The second is that we learn from our mistakes. So even if our first flight is a bit uncomfortable, we are sure to build confidence from taking that step. We may even fail, but failure will help us to learn a thing or two about how we will do it better next time!
On the same day, Venus will enter into Leo making it a good time for praise and accolades. Recognition and self-expression will be valued. So if you see someone trying out their wings… give them the fanfare that will help lift their confidence. They will appreciate it. If we don’t get what we need… well Mars will also oppose the North Node, giving us the energy to break free. If mama is holding us in the nest, we rebel. If friends are holding us back, we break away. We get clear about the groups of people who are for us and who are against us and make decisions about their value in our lives. With Venus in Leo squaring Uranus in Taurus the following day, we may literally or figuratively sell all of our belongings and run off with the circus!
Why? New Moon at 22°Gemini, Mercury Sextile Uranus, Mercury Square Chiron, Venus Entering Leo, Mars Opposition Transiting North Node, Venus Square Uranus
Building our Self Confidence
What to expect: Deep intuition
What to watch out for: Pessimistic attitudes
What will it affect? Thinking patterns, wounds, relationships, nurturing.
On June 14th Jupiter in Scorpio will trine Pallas in Cancer and we can connect deeply to our emotions and intuition. These two are still in close proximity to Neptune and form a water grand trine. If we can key into this energy we are able to connect with something both deep within ourselves and on a higher level, something greater than ourselves. From this connection, we can find spiritual wisdom and guidance. This will be particularly important as on June 15th Mercury in Cancer will oppose Saturn in Capricorn. This brings in a pessimistic energy that can make us over emotional, gloom and doom and overly self-protective. Venus in Leo will trine Chiron in Aries bringing up a relationship issue or possibility and issue with money. Its an issue if worked through can help to build our self-esteem and confidence.
On June 16th the Sun will sextile Ceres. Give a little praise and recognition and not only will it make you feel good, it will also likely be returned to you making you feel even better!
