With Moon in her waxing phase, assertive Mars in communicative Gemini and ruler Mercury direct, the month begins with three propitious days for progress.
We can also thank Venus for this window. Venus, the planet of love, art and money, connects with the waning Saturn-Uranus trine, a highly constructive aspect that has characterized 2017 since its astrological beginning last Winter Solstice, became exact again in May, and will become exact once more in November.
Venus in Aries trines Saturn, and then moves to join Uranus on Saturday, June 3, when Sun also trines the other so-called benefic, Jupiter.
We can well use these days for communication, promotion, seeking contacts, and connecting with others who accept us as we are and encourage us to express our individual self. With Saturn involved, the gold of these influences comes from tending our own claim.
While the coastal fog lifts in the Summer Sun, the intuitive, surrealistic side of June begins to cloud the air on June 4, the month’s first Sunday, with a square from Sun to Neptune. We should take special care now to avoid confusion, substance abuse or potentially low-vibration interactions. Artwork, music and devotional activities are favored. With Sun in Gemini, a psychic consultation can be interesting, but avoid unknown or dubious medium situations (and of course, the Ouija).
Also on June 4, Mars enters Cancer. In Cancer, the sign of personal emotions, the planet of assertiveness becomes less agile and outgoing. It is in a more defensive mode, and prefers side-stepping. If you have natal Sun, rising or Moon in Aries, or any of these in conjunction or hard aspect to Mars, the subjective side of your warrior nature can be exacerbated.
It’s not like we’ve completely lost our assertive efficacy. For all of us, the aggressive planet’s potential for breakthrough can still be tapped if we remember to pause before acting, to think things through, to listen to our intuition, and to apply our savvy. With a sensitive and creative approach, we can fight for our country, family or a particular relative or loved one, and make significant headway in causes related to women, children, habitat, and food. Cancer also has a touch with almost any kind of business. In one or more of these areas, we can begin to pave the way for the upcoming Solstice New Moon in Cancer of June 23.
On Tuesday, June 6, Venus enters Taurus for the next four weeks, favoring all things related to the earthy side of the planet of love and fortune: art, sensuality, prosperity, and self-esteem or worthiness.
On the same day, Mercury enters Gemini, giving a boost to our communications, sales and promotional activities, short trips and travel arrangements.
On Friday, June 9, we get a Full Moon in Sagittarius in conjunction to Saturn. This puts Saturn, the worker planet, in the spotlight. It will highlight the area of our charts where the planet of work has been pushing and pressuring us toward a new level of autonomy. Some crisis may arise in relation….
