“It’s time to speak of roses and pomegranates, and of the ocean where pearls are made. Of language and vision, and of the invisible ladders, which are different for each person, that lead to the infinite place where trees murmur and whisper among themselves ‘What a fine stretch this is in the air today.’’ Rumi
Happy Summer! The Summer Solstice on June 20th signals a shift in earth’s energies: From an active, rebirthing, go-for-it spring vibration, into a more mellow, enjoy-the-moment, summer vacation state-of-mind. Spring carries a male-yang, warrior vibration, and summer is more yin-feminine, goddess energy. Time to put aside the whirling dervishes of the world, and take a moment to smell your lovely roses. Life can be beautiful, if you are willing to see the light in all the cosmic cracks.
The big Astro news this month is that Jupiter, after five months in retrograde, goes forward in the sign of Libra. Jupiter is a powerful cosmic force shaping the social, political and global landscape--and how we relate to it. Libra is the diplomat of the zodiac, with the ability to see both sides of the equation. Jupiter in Libra’s message is one of balance, finding middle ground, and embracing the truth.
Your June Horoscope:
Aries: Consider June a “regroup” month, Aries. You’ve had so much going on of late, you need time to chill and integrate. The Sag Full Moon may have you itching to get out of town—which could be a great way to air out your “feathers”. Don’t ignore your relationships in the process. They need some attention and TLC. Perhaps, a certain someone would make a great traveling companion? #SmellingTheRoses
Taurus: What’s on your mind, Taurus? With planetary action in your house of the mind and intellect--what I call the “I think therefore I am” house--you may find yourself in a mental swirl of new ideas. The key is to not get overwhelmed by your inspirations! You’ll want to balance your adventurous thinking, with intuitive insight. A marriage between your rational mind and intuitive mind is what’s called for now. #Don’tOverThinkIt
Gemini: Your stars are inner-focused this month, as you consider deep and probing questions, like: What’s my raison detre—reason for being? A grand and worthy inquiry this may be, but at the same time, your answers may be simpler than you think. Here’s a clue--you are who you are, and the more you own it, the more you’ll experience your true self and existence. No need to reinvent the wheel, grasshopper. #NotComplicated
Cancer: New Moon, new beginnings! The Moon is your ruling orb—and when she illuminates your sign this month, opportunities for renewal are magical and powerful. Take advantage! Do some energetic clearing, release the past and what no longer serves you. I suggest a New Moon ritual on the 23rd, to set intentions for what you want to experience next. Don’t forget, you are always the: #SupremeGoddessOfMagicAndAllGoodThings

Leo: De-ja vu: “The feeling of having previously experienced something actually being encountered for the first time.” Everything old is new again, as your stars configure in your house of the past. This is an opportunity to see the past with different eyes, embrace your old stories and then shapeshift into a new reality. You are learning that your past is just a touchstone, and doesn’t define your future. #BackToTheFuture
Virgo: New groove, Virgo! After five months of retrograde motion, Jupiter, the planet of opportunities and good fortune is moving forward in your house of money and security. This means endeavors, previously stalled or delayed, along with financial gain, can be propelled forward, towards manifestation and completion. Embrace the lessons of the past, and let them guide you to a prosperous future. #IAmSuccessful
Libra: It’s all about Jupiter! Jupiter, in ancient Roman mythology was considered the King of Gods, and the God of the Sky and Thunder. As a planet, Jupiter is known for its beneficial energy, bringing new opportunities. Jupiter has been retrograde in your sign for five months, and goes direct this month. Grab your thunder bolts, rattle some cages, and step into a more expansive future, ‘cause #TheThunderGodHasYourBack
Scorpio: Major planetary action in your house of higher learning, travel and adventures, has you feeling restless and oh-so-bored with your current day-to-day reality—no matter how lovely it may be. You need something new, something wonderful and stimulating. Time to go outside your comfort zones and do something completely and utterly outside of your “normal” reality. Inspiration awaits. #TheRoadLessTraveled
Sagittarius: Your June Fairytale. Once upon a time there was a princess traveling through the countryside. Tired and weary from her journey, she finds herself at a castle. The queen of the castle invites her in, and to test whether she is a real princess, puts a small pea beneath a stack of mattress that are her bed. The princess awakes the next morning, black and blue. The message Sag, is, it’s time to: #EmbraceYourSensitiveNature
Capricorn: What do you value? This is the question of the month, as you dig deeper into your very personal relationship with money and security. A reminder that money is energy (you know this), and the more that you value you—your gifts and inner-resources--the more you will attract the abundance and prosperity you deserve. Forget the outward climb. Look within. Student becomes teacher. #FromAmbitionToMeaning
Aquarius: Your stars encourage you to: Get practical! I know it doesn’t sound very glamorous or exciting, but if we reframe the word “practical” to its root meaning, it becomes: “accomplished”, “knowledgeable” and “capable”. Sound better? Time to reinvest in your day-to-day life, by being more pro-active about the mundane details. If anyone can make mundane interesting and sexy—it’s you! #SexyBack
Pisces: Good news; not so good news. The good stuff: Mars and the New Moon are in water friendly Cancer, giving a boost to your creative spirit and passion, (i.e. expect new inspirations!) The sticky stuff: Saturn and Jupiter are challenging you to keep it real (i.e. no coloring outside the lines!) Solution: Grab ahold of your creativity and ride the wave of inspiration, while still being true and authentic to you. #IGotThis
