June Astrology 2019
Astrologers consider the beginning of June a mutable month, as the sun is travelling through ever changing mutable sign of Gemini into the summer solstice of Cancer. This is a good time to make changes and be flexible with your daily schedule as well as more important aspects of life.
The new moon June 3rd at 6:02 am EDT is at 12 degrees of Gemini in a T square patter with Jupiter and Neptune. This is indicating that the month will resonate with feelings of hope and optimism. Underneath the vibration of the strong Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn which deals with getting rid of the old to make way for something better is the message to be mindful of your thoughts as they are the precursor of what is to come.
Both Mercury and Mars are out of bounds which indicates they are a wild card. Mercury out of bounds has the tendency to wake you up in the middle of the night with a brilliant idea that has your mind racing with all of the possibilities that comes with it. Mars, the action or warrior planet, out of bounds in Cancer is hypersensitive to insults and even real or imagined threats against home, family and or ones sense of belonging in their country and community. What does it mean for you? Be mindful of individuals around you that could take offense by invading their space, (think road rage) or unintentional comments perceived as insults.
The weeks that follow the new moon vacillate between unbridled enthusiasm to embrace all that life offers with a blur of commitments to friends, work and family. Remembering to breathe through your whirlwind is essential especially if your sleep is relegated to the bottom of your priority list.
The full moon is at 25 degrees of Sagittarius on June 17th at 4:31 am EDT. Jupiter rules this Sag moon and is in its home in Sagittarius. There is a deep desire to cut the cords that bind you and fly free under this signature. However with Mars and Mercury together in Cancer opposite Saturn and Pluto together in Capricorn the push and pull between let me free and what about xyz will test your beliefs and patience. The key is to acknowledge the supposed limitations that society, your past, and your own mind has over you. Then observe the frustration or anger that bubbles up around the circumstances that are holding you back, release the emotional charge and then be open to the messages and symbols that appear.
On June 18th Saturn in Capricorn is sextile Neptune in Pisces, for the second time this year. This is a time when focus and determination along with vision and creativity helps make our dreams a reality.
The day of the solstice, June 21st at 11:54 am EDT, Neptune stations retrograde.
This day is profoundly infused with the connection to other realms and the opportunity to go very deep into meditative states of being. Relationships, love, family, and close friends are the theme for this solstice chart. Venus in Gemini is closely connected with the Jupiter Neptune square activating the pull towards generosity and loving support to those you care about. In addition the Sun at 0 degrees of Cancer is opposite the planet Cupido (TNP from Uranian astrology) which symbolizes families, marriages, companions and partnerships. Focusing on creating caring partnerships that support each other in what is possible will reap the rewards of abiding friendships.
Mercury moves out of Cancer and into Leo on the 26th of June beginning to slow down before it makes it station retrograde in early July. The intuitive internal thinking process gives way to a stronger need to be inspired through symbols and visual cues. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, if someone doesn’t understand what you are trying to say, send them a visual.

Summer Solstice 2018 Astrology (Winter Solstice for Down Under)
The cardinal turning points, (solstices and equinoxes) are traditionally 4 of the main prediction tools ancient astrologers used, along with eclipses. How you will know what will happen in your country is to place the chart for where the leader of the country resides. Then analyze it from there. In the USA chart the summer solstice begins a few minutes after sunrise, which means the rising sign or ascending sign is also in Cancer. Having the rising sign in a cardinal sign indicates the chart will give the story of what to come until the next eclipse or equinox, whichever comes first. Mundane analysis for the USA is the president will be spending time behind the scenes as he is in that sector of the chart and opposite Lilith dealing with secret negotiations with woman who do not want to be put in their place. This could be his wife, could be tryst. Neptune is still making a major aspect in the USA chart and in this chart suggesting that the public continues to be left in the dark about what is really going on. The people, represented by the moon, are in Libra, wanting life to be fair and peaceful. Strong division in the parties continues as Venus and Mars are in an exact opposition.
On a personal level, this time represents making peace with the duality within and with significant others in your life. The polarization can be external, you and your kids, lover, boss, etc or internal between what you want and what you are willing to do to get what you want.

This lends a serious vibe to the day before and after the full moon. Since mars will be retrograde less than 2 days before, plans that you have made will have a slow down along with an urgent push to take care of obligations in order to free up time for the upcoming weekend and following week. Travel and vacation will be in full swing and delays could hamper the expected arrival time. All will be fine when you have a plan B and an extra quota of patience.

Conjunct the north node of the moon the universe is giving a shove to embrace not only the qualities of Leo, creative self-expression, open heart and playfulness, it is doing it in a Lilith way, independent of what the male patriarchy has deemed as the appropriate way for a woman to behave. So have fun, wear your wild and sexy clothes, can you say girls weekend?
Always remember that the planets don’t make something happen, it is the music of the spheres that at times is in great harmony other times with dissonance. When we listen to the messages of the universe we can have foreknowledge of how best to use the energy available. Not too much different than weather forecasting that gives you the heads up if it is a day for sunscreen or an umbrella.
At each moment the planets and how they align offer us opportunity to develop and express ourselves according to the vibrational energy of the moment. June offers many opportunities in healing, contemplation, and integration between our thoughts and feelings. The month begins with Ceres moving direct. Ceres is the principle of nurturing, ruling over food production. Be on the lookout for news about food production, prices and controversy. Mercury is either in its shadow or retrograde the whole month of June, moving from early degrees of Cancer back into the sign it rules Gemini. How we think about life, and what we want to know and learn are important key points.
Neptune moves retrograde once a year and creates a very powerful laser beam of all things Neptune at this time.

There is a deep stirring of frustration or even anger associated with the ingress chart as the Moon in Aries conjunct Eris will bring to light areas in your life that you feel you have been shut out. Sometimes it is from a promotion you deserved, other times injustice and inequality, but most of all, feeling diminished by circumstances that have blocked your ability to life the life you want. The key given from the planetary alignment is to keep reconnecting with what is most important in life. Deep below the surface, when all is said and done, what is the more important to you than anything? Connecting with that emotion and holding it deep inside and allowing it room to be and expand will change your life. The frustration will dissipate and motivation to do what is need to have what is most important in your life will replace hurt and anger.
