Mood of the Moment
Two different influences determine this month; the first builds up the tension and the second confuses our senses. But resources are also available to help avoid risky extremes. These extremes are linked on one hand with the power planets Mars, Uranus and Pluto, which are striving to complete the liberation process begun at the end of last year. On the other hand they are linked with retrograde Mercury that tends to delay or confuse mental and verbal analysis. Taken together they could result in ill-considered actions, impulsive promises, messed up negotiations, unnoticed misunderstandings, careless mistakes and sometimes even intentional cover-ups.
Our resources in June are primarily Venus and Chiron. Venus as a source of strength makes it easier for us to look benevolently on others and ourselves, and be open to search for solutions even in adverse circumstances. Chiron makes us human and modest without under-estimating our worth. He also gives us common sense which is vital now.
In the second half of June slow progress is better than trying to rush forward. In this way more trust and relaxation will develop.
Aries: Use the fresh energy in the first half of the month for new steps and projects. With some good will you will also succeed in taking other people’s sensitivities into account. However, in the second half of June it can get risky as on one side it feels as if you’ve fallen between the stools, and at the same time you feel under pressure to introduce deep-seated and liberating changes. Diplomacy is needed and that’s not exactly your strong point. Let others lead and act in tune with them.
Taurus: Things run smoothly especially in the first half of the month. You’re very aware of your inner strength, and your self-confidence and modesty help you easily find your way. However, in the middle of the month Saturn can strew a few obstacles in your path. See this sportively. With so many positive influences you’ll be able to think of something to change these obstructions into resources. In the last week more flexibility will be required from you. Stay alert and be aware of who you’re meeting up with.
Gemini: Cautious progress is this month’s motto. Even if in early June Uranus puts you under pressure to make innovations, you must reckon with not being able to see things clearly. Therefore it’s advisable first of all to collect all the necessary information. The opinions and insights of others can also help you see your way forward. However, you are going to need a large amount of different data, so that new steps may only be feasible in July. Starting from the end of June some things will be clarified of their own accord.
Cancer: In the first half of the month there are some tensions as you could be in conflict with your own demands. A process is now beginning in which you search for a wider and higher perspective in which seeming contradictions can resolve. Meetings with others supply only partial answers, which for the time being satisfy and make you happy, but are not lasting. Rise to a level where you have an overview of temporal limitations and discover something that transcends them.
Leo: You exude ideas and are thirsty for action! But in the second week there are problems and you are forced to hold back your horses. No one is really responsible for this period of delays and obstacles. Just put up with it and don’t exhaust yourself with hopeless battles. In the last third of the month your attitude will change. You’ll be clear headed but softer and more receptive. Open up to something greater that will allow you at last to do justice to your true longing.
Virgo: The middle part of the month is especially positive. A process is reaching a decisive turning point that has been giving you stability, strength and composure since October, and will continue into late summer. This has a renewing and stabilizing effect in affairs of the heart, and leads everything to do with sharing and learning in a more favourable direction. The beginning and end of the month, however, are more strained. You tend to feel inferior, and need patience with yourself as well as others.
Libra: The way ahead is clear until mid June, but from then onwards you’ll need to approach things with more awareness and inner composure. Take your spontaneous desires and romantic longings less seriously. They make you unhappy and divert you away from what your heart really desires. The end of this month will indicate the direction for many years ahead. New activities will begin and you’ll find new ways of employing your willpower and energy. Don’t allow your need for harmony to undermine your strength and vitality.
Scorpio: The June influences for Scorpio are best described by the word sub-optimal, whereby the first half of the month turns out to be more stuck, and the second half more confrontational where your challenges are concerned. The best thing to do is to take one step at a time without any great expectations. The powerful energy from the middle of June onwards can be used positively to initiate new projects. Plan during the time until November to bring them to a positive conclusion.
Sagittarius: Give your female side that is earthy, receptive and wants to be connected, more space. Your belief that it is not compatible with your real and higher aims is not true. Heaven and earth are one even if they appear to be opposites. On their own they remain barren; together they are love. When heaven and earth have met in you, you’ll never lack anything again. In fact the two have always been one within you; you just need to recognize this and to value it.
Capricorn: Come totally into the present and take one step after another. That way you’ll save yourself a great deal of frustration, and make faster progress than if you try to forcefully push through your projects. In the first half of the month not only do you lack the necessary luck, but your clarity, strength and perseverance are also subject to wide fluctuations. In the second half of June it’s about staying in balance. An ‘all or nothing’ mentality has the advantages of determination and courage. But important now are creativity, tact and tolerance.
Aquarius: A month that offers you a lot of new ideas, impetus and, in the second half, activities. Be creative and invent your life anew – not in all areas but there where you are beginning to get bored. It’s up to you to introduce colour and new structures. But also allow yourself to be inspired by others, especially by young people. Collect ideas. Then at the end of the month it will be time to take a radically new direction – an enterprise that’s been in your mind since the end of 2013 but is only now taking a concrete shape.
Pisces: A deep let-go and amazing change of thinking will begin now and continue till the end of July. This month it’s mainly about giving up your struggle with the unavoidable and surrendering to the process of coming home whatever that means, and wherever your home may be. Home is where your desires lose their substance and calm down. All your desires will never be fulfilled here on earth. Peace is found in the unconditional acceptance of this truth.
