Mood of the Moment
Two major astrological events – as well as several smaller ones – shape the month of June. On the 11th, Jupiter moves into Gemini: thinking, speaking, learning and communicating will from now on serve in the expansion of consciousness. We can see how our mind’s activities can help in our spiritual development. Gone are the days of gullible sympathetic vibration when concepts just ‘somehow feel good’. For one year from now it is about healthy scepticism, and especially so in the esoteric-spiritual realm.
A square between Uranus and Pluto has been forming since 2011 and is now precise; it will be repeated seven times over the next 4 years. These unsettling powers – both of which are ruthless in nature, taboo breaking, and transformative – challenge our thinking, feeling and actions so that we develop an entirely new perspective.
The process starting now uproots fixations and dependencies and leads to a mighty clash between the powerful and powerless. This happens both internally and externally, materially and emotionally, as well as mentally and spiritually. Similarly, shadow issues become obvious individually and collectively and require thorough and far reaching processing. Changes often occur at lightning speed and are always surprising. A breakdown always has to happen first in order for something new to sprout.
This newness is a continuation of processes that began during the mid-sixties. It was mentioned in the horoscope for 2012 and in future horoscopes this constellation will be referred to again and again.
Aries: You’ll be highly charged for the entire month; keep moving, yet pay attention to your body’s signals and don’t overtax it. In order for you to live out your potential of being free and unique, during the next few years Pluto will present you with critical situations and sometimes cause a sudden change. He challenges you to leave behind constricting structures. The restlessness you are experiencing is hard to endure. In spite of that take your time, but prepare for changes and don’t fight against them.
Taurus: The first half of June brings pleasant things and enjoyable moments; celebrate them with those close to your heart. In partnerships there may be tensions but they can be solved through honest sharing and reflecting on common values. Also during the second half of the month all runs smoothly, yet don’t expect the humanly impossible and remain open to new ideas. Be flexible. Communication continues to be most important; clear your path of any misunderstandings.
Gemini: During the first third of June it’s about surrender: surrender to life, to love, to everyday routine, to truth. In the second third of the month, Jupiter and the tension between Uranus and Pluto create innumerable interesting possibilities and innumerable exciting challenges. Now you absolutely need Saturn to centre you and Chiron to make you aware that not everything is possible. The over-brimming energy continues to increase in the final third of the month. Yoga, mantra chanting, or Osho’s Nadabrahma meditation support you.
Cancer: Pluto and Uranus first put your mind in turmoil, and then your whole life. It is important to remind yourself again and again that both only want to liberate you from stifling shackles. That they don’t go about that in a delicate fashion is justified by the fact that you perceive certain restrictions more keenly. After all, it’s about your own vitality. Over the next 5 years emotional entanglements that have kept you imprisoned long enough will be swept out of the way.
Leo: Above all, the first three weeks are all about love. Actually, you lack nothing for happiness: you have zest, optimism, sincerity and devotion; you are equally playful as well as realistic and caring. Give your heart to people, animals, the sun and the wind! For end of June prepare yourself for a formidable cyclone. Muster courage and go right into the midst of it – with a clear head and sensitivity. Communication is very important now; share your experiences with others.
Virgo: In the first week your high ideals could make life difficult for you. Stop fighting – with yourself, others, life. In the second half of June you begin to relax gradually with things as they are, just as they happen to be at the moment. Now give yourself and others time to feel, and the space to truly meet in conversation. Find the situations in which you can dare to be just who you are – and the people you can accept, even if they reveal their shortcomings. Protect yourself and others.
Libra: Talking is on. You don’t need to act yet, but speak out specifically and directly about what you are really occupied with. This month’s positive climax comes in the second week. You are both open and centred. The third week requires your imagination, because irrevocable circumstances and power issues need to be dealt with. In the fourth week there’s a turning point; you will have time until October to clean up ambiguous and niggling conditions. You can only do that by looking things squarely in the eye.
Scorpio: Now starts a challenging time requiring unusual steps with which you will leave many of your ingrained behaviorial patterns behind. As a Scorpio you don’t fear challenges, but loss of control appears as a major threat. Over the coming years, however, you will experience again and again that, without much warning, the reins are taken out of your hands and your time-honoured control patterns no longer work. In fact, Uranus will liberate you from the fear behind your need to control.
Sagittarius: Jupiter moves into Gemini, and your basic mood changes. Everything becomes easier, you are more flexible, more open to all sorts of ideas, different views, new contacts. The coming twelve months are appropriate for learning something and being on the road a lot. Discover the joy of understanding something through inquiry. In the last third of June be alert, for you tend to be easily taken in. Although now your horizon can expand enormously, you may also fall victim to your own fantasies.
Capricorn: Rethinking is on – and this month is just the beginning of a process that will last for many years. In the first half of June it is relatively easy for you to remain relaxed even in the most gruelling situations; stay with the facts instead of hopping onto your mind’s merry-go-round. In the second half, Uranus is shaking your throne. Something within you or in your surroundings is rebelling against the status quo that you have settled with. Be assured: it has no chance of remaining as it is. Be open to change!
Aquarius: The increased energy that has permeated your life since 2011 intensifies with the Uranus Pluto square. You now get to places you have avoided until now: intense emotions, border and shadow areas, passions and depths in which ‘I and you’ dissolve. Engage yourself with the impending transformation – it can take many years and will totally change your experience of reality. What helps you is mental flexibility, lateral thinking and the willingness to see with the heart.
Pisces: Slow down your pace and turn increasingly within. Particularly in the first half of the month, don’t rely on mutuality and friendly companionship. The others haven’t got the answers now that you are looking for. You will find those within your own self or with people and powers that are somewhat ahead of you and support you in your process of realization. In the last week of June there is a danger of lethargy – now look for challenges and goals in order to put your insights to the test.
