Mood of the Moment
A particularly special and positive energy pervades this month, opening hearts and senses to new possibilities of expression. The inner ‘heart horizon’ expands, encompassing people and situations, which had been previously excluded. Now things that ordinarily nobody had taken into consideration can be tried out playfully and full of confidence. This is true in matters large and small, in public as in private spheres. Saturn helps to remain realistic, but with retrograde Mercury there are blind spots, and Neptune does not exactly provide for a sober look. Therefore, it is better not to make any far-reaching decisions during the first half of June and rather verify one’s analyses one more time than not enough. Just because something feels consentaneous, it doesn’t mean for it to be true or realistic.
Saturn, moving back into Scorpio mid-June, points at certain emotionally reactive patterns, which have had us in a vice since eternity and ought to be resolved during the next 3 months. This can be quite unsettling because even though they were obstructive we got used to them and so far know no better attitude. But attitudes can be changed, and only without such identifications can life progress again.
Aries: After the minor slow-down end of May you rapidly become buoyant again, starting off into June with verve and ingenuity. Around the middle of the month it is advisable to keep an eye on your health, because the body is now less resilient. Quite possibly there are health issues of someone else that occupy you, and it will help you and them if you offer your support. In the last third of the month your protective side intensifies anyway, while your independence remains intact.
Taurus: You’re headed a little squeamish into June, but not weak. Your strength will increase with Venus’ entry into Leo and also Saturn will add to stability. In the second half of the month it is about withstanding a certain tension. There’s no need to probe the reason and there’s little you can do about it. In fact it is better to do nothing and wait until the tension dissipates. Surprisingly this could already be the case in late June. Venture into the unknown!
Gemini: A textbook example of a Gemini month: inspirational, rich in contacts, with a lot of communication and new experiences. But it can also lead to misunderstandings or delusive statements if you fall into the trap. In all this hustle and bustle it’s best if you look time and again for hideaways. Allow yourself some rest in order to observe the situation with detachment and inspect it in close detail. This is particularly indispensable if you experience a lot of uncongenial surprises because you tend to be rash in word and deed.
Cancer: The first half of June demands that you focus on what goes on beyond your daily life and personal affairs. Questions of meaning, the search for contexts, contents and substance, the essence of ‘all’ becomes important. Take your time and space to pursue these issues, because they are becoming increasingly important in the course of life. In the second half of the month it’s again about practical matters and more about the ‘how’ than the ’why’. Now is the time to creatively shape mutuality with your loved ones.
Leo: It’s as good as it gets! Jupiter, in astrology the planet of ‘greater fortune’, and Venus, the ‘lesser fortune’ pair up in Leo in early June, supported by Saturn’s grounding energy and boosted by Uranus from the end of June onwards. He bestows lightness and originality: whatever may strike a chord in your heart – love it with all your heart, no matter whether it fits established standards, no matter what your conditioning says, regardless of merit. Love makes you free if you love unconditionally.
Virgo: You are striving for a balance between courage and humility. Both are valuable, both can be destructive in the extreme – to yourself or to others. At one point the brave, powerful and mighty seem to be pitted against you, while humility, surrender, or even sacrifice are demanded from you. Then again, you belong to the gentle and good – in the service of the big picture, while others ruthlessly care alone for their own good. No matter where you stand, always put yourself into the shoes of the opposing party.
Libra: A beautiful June, balanced without being dull, inspiring without being exhausting. But in the second half of the month an inner restlessness might come up which is difficult to pinpoint. Neither letting go and relaxation, nor effort and commitment seem to produce a satisfying result – this means for a Libra that the scales keep on moving up and down and don’t come to rest. Don’t bother about it, rather pay attention to the more pleasant things this month.
Scorpio: Saturn and Pluto bring disagreements on the table, calling for clarification and solutions, yet that is still unlikely for this month; after all these are issues with a long history. Simply examine them from all sides, without aspiring to bring them to a close straight away. The more honest you are about it, the better. Some things, of course, will be resolved without much involvement from your side – simply because now the time is ripe.
Sagittarius: Just as with the Leos, June looks really good for you. Generally the tension is higher, but this can be very inspiring. In any case, Saturn will spend summer in Scorpio and not in Sagittarius and you can get quite a lot of things off the ground now. Also, all matters of the heart are under an extra lucky star – which means not only love affairs but just everything that matters to your heart. In this summer, get all those things moving for which later on strength and vigour could be lacking.
Capricorn: The positive connection of the heart planet Venus with your own planet Saturn is a highlight in the first half of June. Recharge your batteries with friends and rejoice with all that is beautiful in life. Inner work is called for in the second half of the month. You could have the impression that nothing matches up to anything and you feel as if you were standing with your back to the wall. No need to worry, this won’t go on forever but you will have to endure it for these two weeks. While this is going on do not look too far ahead, but take one small step at a time.
Aquarius: Male energy dominates at the beginning of the month, enabling you to implement what you want without much effort. Because of your ideas and alliances you have good chances to accomplish your goals. Trust your energy, it will carry you. End of June, Aquarians will also benefit from the soothing connection of Venus with Jupiter and Uranus which will keep on making an impact throughout July, making life more pleasant and harmonious. They will particularly benefit your friendships.
Pisces: How to reconcile assertiveness and willpower with the fundamental vulnerability of human existence? Anybody who hasn’t found a satisfying solution in this respect becomes much too often victim of circumstances or presses ahead too forcefully. This month experiment by swinging from pillar to post, between intentional action and impartial let-go, between “I want and I act,” and “I accept that everything is okay as it is.” What counts is not to prefer or deny any of these positions compulsively.
