June is a powerful month. We’re halfway through the year, and as we get ready for Summer, we look back at where we started and reflect on what’s ahead.
We start the month on a Mercury Retrograde. When this happens, we can expect some minor delays and nuisances in our day to day. Still, more importantly, it’s time to reevaluate certain aspects of our lives. This retrograde is happening in your 5th house. Your creativity could be going wild during this time. You may run through all sorts of stories in your head that are seemingly unrelated to your life. Though it may be difficult to express them due to the retrograde, make an extra effort to concretize it. Maybe you could take drawing as a hobby for the month, and let your hand do the work. Experiment with it and see if you can draw intuitively, so you can later interpret it to get clues on anything that’s been pressing you for answers. Even though Mercury is moving backwards, it’s still in its own sign (Gemini). Use these potent energies to your own benefit.
Mercury is not alone moonwalking in the heavens, though. Saturn is also in retrograde in your 1st house. This transit can make people quite anxious, as if some invisible force was coming to get you. Be attentive, and don’t let a cloud of pessimism follow you wherever you go. Try to avoid any dark themed movies or even take a break from social media for a while. The news can be one of the most significant sources of anxiety for many of us. Try to be out more and ground yourself to your reality—not that of others. Watch as the flowers finish blooming as we go into the summer. Counteracting this transit is all about finding happiness in the little things in life and looking for the silver lining in everything. While this astrological event can make things seem slow and dull at times, it’s also the calm before the “positivity storm.” Saturn gets a bad reputation because the ancients considered it a malefic planet, but that’s just a misunderstanding. The planet slows things down to give itself time to craft the most precious gifts to humanity. It builds structures and systems that are long-lasting. The wait is really worth it. Try to always remember that.
Uranus will also be square with Saturn on the 14th.
Uranus is similar to Saturn in the sense that it creates blessings out of discomfort. Yet, this rebellious planet is really not into waiting like Saturn is. It’s explosive and wants change when it wants it. Both worlds squaring each other create a little bit of a conflict of approaches toward a common goal. Uranus will be in your 4th house, symbolizing your comfort-zone and your family. This transit will likely break you out of your own shell for good. If you happen to struggle with self-doubt, Uranus is not about it anymore. Especially with the pandemic happening, many of us got used to dwelling in our own bubbles without ever having to challenge ourselves to expand our ideas of a comfort zone. This may manifest as a situation that you just have to deal with. It will test your ability to act quickly but flawlessly. Getting through it will be a great example of your capability of overcoming obstacles. Uranus sees you equipped with all the tools to chase your dreams, but if you’re worrying more than doing, he will make you get up and go.
The Lunar cycle starts on the 10th with the Moon in Gemini. This lunation will bring the mood up and will reconnect you with your inner child. Even though it’s not your season yet, you could try throwing a little party. If you are unsure what to celebrate, simply give yourself the satisfaction of being here and now. Being present is one of the most immense privileges of the universe. Reconnecting with your roots and remembering where you came from will put everything into perspective. Gemini is social and curious; take a lesson from the book of your fellow air sign.
Closing the month, the full moon in your 12th house will aid you in making sense of all the anxiety or maybe fatigue that you have been fiercely working against. Capricorn is all about overcoming significant obstacles, and you more than anyone know that this is one of them. During the full moon, our emotions are illuminated by the Sun, turning even the most repressed urges visible for us to deal with it once and for all. Capricorn is the perfect remedy for the Aquarian overthinking syndrome. It will ground you and give you tools to take with you for the long run. Watch out for any Capricornian friends or acquaintances. Reach out to them. They can have hidden gems that will provide you with the insight necessary to get past any roadblocks.
