Astro Babble June Edition ~ Your Personal Horoscope Included!
“Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can achieve, expect for the limitation you place on your own imagination.” Anthon St. Maarten
The astro theme for June is: Getting real with your dreams! First, a retrograde update—Mercury has gone direct, but we still have Mars, Saturn, Pluto and mid month, Neptune, in retrograde motion. Retrograde planets offer a time to make sure you’re on the right track and make adjustments as you go. Patience, my friends, patience!
The big Astro news this month is the heightened planetary squares between Saturn, Neptune and Jupiter. Saturn (real-world-reality) is challenging Neptune (dreams and visions) and Jupiter (expansion) to step up to the plate and get real about making your dreams reality.
Saturn is a manifester, and if you’re willing to look at your life clearly, do the work, cut away what’s holding you back (no small thing!), this month is a powerful time to make those visions real! Perseverance, faith and discipline are key now. The signs most affected by the mutable cross/squares are: Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo and Pisces (see your individual horoscope for details.)
Summer Solstice: June 20th: The Summer Solstice is traditionally a time of celebration, of honoring the light and our connection to Father Sun and Mother Earth. Symbolically, it is a time of abundance, of basking in the warm light of the Sun, relaxing and watching the fruits of our labor ripen and grow. (I have three plum, two pear and four apple trees on my property, and I can’t wait for them to bear fruit!)
Gemini New Moon, June 4th: June’s new moon is all about communication, play, fun, socializing--basically not sitting still! This new moon offers the ultimate energy for writing, problem solving and getting new inspiration. New moons are a time of release, and this is an excellent time to write down what you want to let go off. Then, write down what you want to experience more of in your life. The Gemini new moon will help you to get clear and set new goals.
Sagittarius Full Moon, June 20th: This is the second Sagittarius Full Moon in two months, which is a rare cosmic occurrence! Think back to May 20/21st, the time of last month’s Sag Full Moon. What was your focus then, what were you thinking, feeling, wanting? The hopeful seeds of your desires planted then have the opportunity to come to fruition now. This full moon offers a sense of completion and wholeness that has been in the works since May.
Your June Horoscope
Aries: Mutable Squares? Retrograde planets? Whatever! You’re on track to get real about your life, and nothing will stop you. This month, Saturn (in retrograde) is your new best friend! Saturn is like a wise, stern but loving grandfather, the little voice in your head saying: “Stay present.” “Don’t give in.” “Be patient”. Your dreams have great potential, but there is a process ahead to ground them in reality. Stay the course! #OneStepAtATime
Taurus: What some horoscopes don’t mention about you, Taurus is that you are a deeply spiritual being. And your “church” is Mother Nature. This month, you may find yourself longing for spiritual connection and community, places and landscapes where you feel at one with your source. And if you’re worrying about how you can be spiritual and make a living—don’t. The angels have that covered! #ChoosingMyReligion
Gemini: In the immortal words of the Clash: “Should I stay, or should I go now?” June’s mutable squares are greatly affecting you, plus the new and full moons in your houses of self and other, only add to the cosmic push-pull, backwards-forward, stay-go equation. Whenever possible, seek middle ground and avoid going to extremes. This is not a time to make big decisions, instead step back and look for the organic flow. #EasyBreezy
Cancer: Anticipate emotional storms this month, Cancer. Chaotic, cosmic is energy swirling around you, and you’re the eye of the hurricane. It’s important to stay grounded, as others are looking to your for support. The new and full moons illuminate the need for balance between yourself and the needs of others. If you were in an airplane disaster (heaven forbid!), wouldn’t it be wise to grab the oxygen mask for yourself first? #QueenOfDragons
Leo: Your word this month? Perseverance! You’re receiving good cosmic juju from both the New Moon and Full Moon in Leo-friendly signs, adding fuel to your personal gas tank. Expect to be newly inspired about creative projects, but at the same time, it’s important to be discerning about what’s real, and what’s an ego-based fantasy. The difference? The real stuff happens easily, without conflict or drama. #StressFreeMagic
Virgo: This month’s mutable squares could have you feeling like the cosmic police is on your tail! No ticket, Virgo, instead just a warning--slow down and observe the rules! You like rules, so work with whatever restrictions are happening. In a weird way, your limitations are your greatest gift now. This will all make sense as you take life one step at a time. Get your proverbial ducks in a row, then expect great things! #CosmicPoPo
Libra: Transformation, baby! You’ve been kicking butt, setting boundaries and embracing your personal power. On tap for you this month is communication. The new and full moons are encouraging to speak up and put your thoughts, feelings and insight into action. You may be surprised at how much you have to express, and how much others could benefit from your wisdom. Blog in your future? #GenieInABottle
Scorpio: Your story this month is from “The Princess and the Pea”. A princess spent the night in the home of her potential prince, and had to sleep on a stack of twenty mattresses with a small pea buried beneath. If she felt the pea, she would be a “real princess”. The morale is that you may feel extra sensitive, but this is where your greatest strength and real magic lie. You are princess/prince pea-worthy! #EmbracingMyVulnerability
Sagittarius: This month, all roads lead to you and you may find yourself anchoring different realities and perspectives. Now more than ever is a time to trust yourself and your instincts. This is especially true around your relationships—work, family and romantic--as you consider how you want to step forward. Be authentic and stand in your truth. Truth is the shinning light at the end of the tunnel. #TheGospelAccordingToSag
Capricorn: Cosmic identity crisis? Your stars have you asking some important questions this month, especially around your life purpose. You could spend a lot of time ruminating on who you are, what you’re doing, etc., but at the end of the day, I want to remind you, that, yes--you do know who you are, and there’s really no great mystery to solve. Stay the course. All else is a distraction. Trust the process. Trust you. #StayGold
Aquarius: The Mars retrograde in your career house says not to expect big advances on this front. Instead, your focus is on getting creative! Time to nurture your creative process and get in touch with what inspires you. You are laying important groundwork for the future, and exploring any means of self-expression will help pave the way. Be open to new possibilities. You will be happily surprised at what comes! #FeelingInspired
Pisces: June’s mutable squares ask you to consider: What areas of your life are out of balance? Are you taking time to enjoy your life, relationships and endeavors? If not, time to make adjustments. You’re in a process of integration, where pieces of your puzzle are starting to come together. Key now is letting go of what no longer serves you. No riff-raff—this is serious business. Stand in your decisions. #FollowOrGetOutOfMyWay
