Astrological Insights for June:
Mindfulness is what allows us to ride these serpentine waves of change now occurring. Our agility in recognizing when to open to the new and when to let go of the old assists us on this ride. The Cosmos is sending out a call to us. Now is the time for transformation and creative collaboration, for deepening our relationship with the soul of the earth and ourselves.
In June, the Sun travels through the breezy and social sign of the Twins, Gemini. Many layers of this twinness are taking place globally and personally. The dark and the light, the eternal and the mortal, sustainable and nonsustainable, masculine and feminine, the sense of self and the projected shadow of the other, are all sets of polarities that are heightened. Situations move into extremes in times of great change. As we reflect on our own inner polarities, the possibility of bringing more harmony and integration into our lives takes place. Polarities are a fact of creative life, the potent tension to awaken us into being more than what we thought ourselves to be. We are on the edge of understanding our powers to recreate the world we live in.
In a rare event, Venus retrograde in Gemini, passes in front of the Sun on June 5th, following a Lunar eclipse ( in Sagittarius,) on the 4th. With Venus in its most powerful retrograde alignment with the heart of our Solar System, we are asked during this time to enter a personal initiation, of dropping deeper into our selves, to align with what is of greatest value in our lives. This lineup of Venus and the lunar eclipse has the potential to attune us to the powers of the feminine, to extend our senses, to listen to each other and to feel into the more subtle dimensions of being. Venus rises as a morning star on the 13th, heralding the downfall of people in power, and change in world politics. Venus leaves its retrograde motion on the 27th, allowing us to move forward with plans that gestated during the last two months.
Jupiter enters Gemini on the 11th, enhancing education, communications and the sharing of information. Watch the news for more breakthroughs and situations being revealed.
The New Moon takes place on the 19th followed by the summer Solstice, as the Sun enters Cancer on the 20th, the longest day of light during the year.
The first exact Uranus square Pluto takes place on June 24th, when Uranus, the planet of freedom, intuition and awakening activates Pluto, the planet of transformation, death and rebirth.
