Well, we got through the Memorial Day hell with Mercury and Neptune switching directions, and June looks a little nicer. June will begin nicely, and it will end nicely, but there may be a few problems in the middle.
Mercury will be firmly embedded on his retrograde path as the month begins, and we may find ourselves talking with past over loved ones, or perhaps going back and visiting our hometown. Mercury's retrograde can also bring old friends out of the woodwork, so maybe we should get out our address books and see who we want to lookup.
The Gemini New Moon will be on Tuesday, June 3rd, and the Sun and Mars will be giving us an added boost of energy. Venus and Mercury will push in to take the Sun's place with Mars by the weekend, and we may be ready to party! Its going to be a great weekend for social events and there could be some extra romance in the air through Monday, June 9th.
There could be some shocking family or money problems from Wednesday, June 11th through Friday as Venus and the Sun pick a fight with the electric planet, Uranus. But, our dreams will reappear on Friday, and our spiritual values will increase as Venus and the Sun move to flatter Neptune through Fathers' Day weekend. If we do find ourselves dealing with some kind of loss mid week, we will have lots of moral support to help us get through it.
The Sagittarius Full Moon on June 18th will be absolutely mad. In fact the drama could even begin a day or two before the event, and it will definitely go on for a few days after. Venus will be crossing into Cancer on the day of the Full Moon, and when planets change signs, there is usually a shift in attitude. But, Pluto is guarding this crossing and exacting tolls from all the planets that cross. Venus will be paying her toll on the Full Moon, and that can mean all kinds of relationship and money problems. You may be tempted to cheat on your partner, or you may find that you've overdrawn your checking account. Watch out for jealousy all through the end of the week.
Mercury turns direct the day after the Full Moon, Thursday, June 18th. That means transportation and communication problems. And, the Sun will be paying his toll to Pluto to cross into Cancer and enter the Summer Solstice on Friday. Some of our secrets may get exposed. There could be misunderstandings and explosive emotional reactions through the weekend. Some of us may become "heroes" and rescue a few people during this crisis, because Venus will be winking at Saturn. But, others will just stay drunk with Mars out of balance with Neptune.
We should all breathe a sigh of relief by Monday, June 23rd. There won't be any major negative planetary aspects again until July 4th weekend. The Sun will be winking at Saturn on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 24th and 25th, and that could be good for business. It could be an excellent time to do some investing. As June reaches it's end, Mars and Pluto will be singing in harmony, and we should find our energy is strong, and we may be ready to clear away some clutter in our lives.
July looks like a good month to make some progress with our lives, And, we will probably want to get busy, because the eclipses are coming the first of August. Check back next month to find out more.
