Jupiter’s entry into Cancer ushers in a phase that is about coming home – in the deepest, but also in the most superficial sense. This means for one year now it is about finding inner and outer peace, mainly concerning our emotional side and feminine archetype needs.

Mood of the Moment
The aftermaths of the Uranus-Pluto conjunction keep shaking us up. This applies particularly to the first half of June while the Saturn-Neptune-Trine supports us throughout the month. The latter has been with us since last autumn and has the effect of making heaven and earth meet, i.e. the world of physical needs and affairs falling in tune with the world of highest spiritual insights. These two apparently contradicting spheres are beginning to harmonize now. The longing for something higher and for more, integrates with the factual situation instead of excluding it. This process keeps unfolding well into late summer.
The second half of June prods us to pay more attention to our ‘gut needs’ and allow for human warmth, emotional sharing, tenderness and sensual pleasure in our lives. Intimate talks with those we love will show the way. Jupiter’s entry into Cancer ushers in a phase that is about coming home – in the deepest, but also in the most superficial sense. This means for one year now it is about finding inner and outer peace, mainly concerning our emotional side and feminine archetype needs.
Aries: The robust energy of last month is getting much more fickle in June, while still pressing for activity and radical changes. But decisions are not that easy now. You are not yet aligned with yourself and sometimes feel imprisoned by inner and outer circumstances. Nor can you as yet clearly see where you are going. Most of all, experiment with different viewpoints and attitudes in your relationships. This will most likely result in new and inspiring objectives.
Taurus: The first third of June will be harmonious, things are in a flow and at the same time healthily grounded. For the exciting second third, remember: you are supported by Chiron – even though not everything runs according to plan now and the tails of the Uranus-Pluto conjunction affect you too. Chiron helps you to keep a relaxed and accepting attitude. In the last third, the mood improves, with emotional sharing and spiritual stimulation affording you the fullness of life. Shed your warmth and generosity.
Gemini: Your acumen and your interest in the diversity of life are gaining ground. At the same time, you rise high above mere curiosity and enter realms that cannot be put into words. Remain in this knowing calm without wanting to add anything to it. With New Moon, an enormous energy wave pressing for change will seize you, even though not much may come of it. Only from the 17th onwards will things get easier, and you experience support and cooperation. From the end of June onwards, it is about coping with the past.
Cancer: All in all this will be an extremely positive month with plenty of gifts, possibilities and pleasant encounters. Only the second week may bring challenges – requiring you to commit yourself, to take a stand, to make your weight felt. For nine months from now, Lilith will buttress your independence. In the third week of June, it is about meetings of the heart; have the guts to speak your soul’s truth. Some may not understand you, but most will go along with you.
Leo: There is change in the air, which will be increasingly easy to integrate into your life over the month. With the New Moon come manifold possibilities. Dare to trust that everything will be for the best. Your concept of the world and of yourself will expand immensely now. This may be confusing at times but Saturn gives you enough realism to be able to establish clarity. Chances are that Saturn with its sense of order enters your life through others. Accept their help. By the end of the month, open up to loving and being loved.
Virgo: There are snares as well as resources in June. Do not try to put your foot down or to try to win through emotional blackmail. Things are much easier when you turn to others out of friendly interest. Perhaps it is too early for mutual action, but seek to communicate and share. Try to understand the other’s viewpoint by understanding his/her background and include the emotional side as well, instead of brushing it aside as a disturbance. It, too, is now a resource.
Libra: This month has three parts. At first great fulfillment, a feeling of having arrived – Saturn anchors you reliably in worldly affairs, while Neptune raises you far beyond. By mid-June, the other side of the coin comes into effect and may draw you into power struggles. You will now wise up to wanting to be completely strong and free. By the end of June, the energy softens again. Now it is possible to come close to others via communication, while remaining in your power.
Scorpio: The energy is slowly mounting and reaches its climax in the second week of June. Once and for all, ban the question ‘Who is right?’ from your mind. It springs from the idea that you have got to fight for your position, as it differs from other people’s. If you really stand by yourself, your ability to take others just the way they are will increase. Stay with your truth and let them have theirs. By the end of the month you can easily open yourself to a bigger context and a wider perspective.
Sagittarius: One whole year with Jupiter in Gemini has helped you to free yourself from one-dimensionality and to see things from various perspectives. Your mind, having overcome its fixation with the one and only truth, has opened up to all sorts of fields and has become more carefree. But now the time is ripe to collect your energies again and heed your personal needs. Your focus is now shifting from thinking to feeling: What do you need? What nourishes you on an emotional and sensual level?
Capricorn: With Uranus-Pluto you are going through intense processes of change – what’s new? They affect everything, but particularly the way you relate. Again – what’s new? Perhaps you are less aware of the beneficial influence of Neptune escorting you. He broadens your awareness and dissolves fixations on unhelpful thought and behaviour patterns – and he now sets off for his final spurt, which is completed by the end of July. Meanwhile meditate, do Yoga, get enough sleep, retreat to a lonely island or high up into the mountains…
Aquarius: At the moment, your active side performs better than the domains of mind or heart. It looks as if you have to come clean with others in some respects. But first of all coming to terms with yourself takes top priority. Just brooding about it and feeling things out won’t necessarily get you anywhere. What you need, is a totally new approach. It will unfold in the stillness of your heart. This may happen while meditating or amidst other activities, as long as you are inwardly tuned to receiving a solution.
Pisces: Finding a clear orientation continues to be difficult – and this is painful at times. Yet underneath, a powerful process of integration is going on, helping you to be considerably more grounded. It already started in October 2012 and reaches its climax in July. An important reorientation is now at hand; although it starts from within, it will soon become manifest in the outer world. Your main support during this time are your relationships – even those that do not comply to your dreams.
