Mood of the Moment
June is the month of Gemini, and this year, entirely to the Gemini’s fancy, it provides a wealth of different constellations. If you always let yourself be supported by those who are most conducive to your own enterprises, everything will be possible for you. What is being offered is inexhaustible! With this knowledge in one’s mind one can venture optimistically into the month. Enthusiasm for experimentation promises the best results in every situation; openness and flexibility are the most productive resources. All extremes, no matter in which direction, are counterproductive and therefore to be avoided.
But whosoever hangs on to the surface and declines to get involved with reality out of sheer eagerness to experiment, Saturn will cause to face facts and do something about them. Both Saturn and Lilith are in Sagittarius and form a corrective for the playful Gemini energy, by referring to their own responsibility and the larger context in which we move. However, they cannot be fobbed off with some quixotic ideas and esoteric concepts, but demand a clear reorientation and concrete steps in a better direction.
Aries: In June, it is about your independence and how to unite this with your desire for solidarity and closeness. Mars is in Cancer, the sign of the protectors and helpers. Give your full power to the care of your loved ones without neglecting your own freedom. Invent and explore new ways to realize yourself, which will also benefit others. In the second half of June, place yourself in the golden mean. If something cannot be established, let it go. No reason to fight!
Taurus: In the first half of June, a creative firework might produce a lot of changes, which you can then further develop and redesign during the month. This usually runs smoothly, even if you have to deal with resistance every now and then. Use it to crystallize more clearly what you really want. The last third of June promises profound experiences, particularly in the spiritual sphere, and you open yourself up in readiness for an unconditional surrender to something greater.
Gemini: June offers a lot of variety, but also a lot of challenges. In the first week, you tend to feel weak and subdued. Seek shelter and retreat, and devote yourself to the activities that strengthen you. From the second week onwards, your alert mind will be at its best. In the spiritual realm, however, it lacks clarity. Take the time to think issues through to the end. At the end of the month welcome everything as it is. To bulldoze your way through is now just as counterproductive as resignation.
Cancer: Mars in your sign gives you a sense of enterprising spirit and clout. It is best to put that into your own projects, because collaboration is only going to flow properly by the end of June. The Sagittarius Full Moon enjoys going on an adventurous journey, hence the more independent you are now, the better; try out new ways! In the middle of the month there might be some confusion, but that soon settles, and in the last week you can be comfortable in your own energy.
Leo: You are now prompted to expand your horizon. Preferably this should be done within, by opening yourself to ‘the world of others‘- whosoever that is to you. Take an interest in what you reject, try to understand it, even if you do not approve of it. Take on the perspective of those you criticize and look at yourself through their eyes. This could trigger a small revolution in you and bring much more compassion into your heart. At the end of June, empathy is effortless.
Virgo: Mercury is your ally – clearing your mind and enabling you to gather information to tackle situations more wisely. If you feel attacked or degraded, it is best to tune into Mercury to help you rise above such emotions by looking at the situation more objectively. Not every feeling is justified, and even if it is, it’s not always wise to pay too much attention to it. Step back, analyse the circumstances objectively and then act.
Libra: Everyone is different from everyone else, and most people get used to it somehow. Only Libras constantly struggle with themselves, because they don’t manage to remain in harmony with the whole world. And yet you are much better at it than all others! The trouble is that you always buckle a little – and who wants that? With Jupiter, you have all the chances to come into harmony with yourself, rather than with the entire world around you. Rely on the judgment of those who value you, instead on your self-doubt.
Scorpio: This month, Mars is your ally, that means your energy is increasing and you can now make a start on or end something that has long been weighing heavily on your soul. An analytical approach often leads to even more confusion now. Hence follow your intuition and do not force anything. Much falls into place if you remain sensitive to it. Working together with others works out particularly well, especially at the end of June. The more you are in harmony with your heart’s desires, the better.
Sagittarius: Pushing your requests vehemently through only provokes resistance. Stay tuned to your goals, but find your bearings with the playful ease of the Gemini energy, instead of sticking relentlessly to your ideas. With the Sagittarius Full Moon, Jupiter starts to move forward again, and everything becomes easier – especially any collaboration. A need for compromise continues, and a bit more diplomacy won’t hurt either. You don’t betray the truth just because you’re being friendly.
Capricorn: The more you flex your muscles, the stricter your standards and the more inflexible your ideas are, the harder it will be for you to prevail. Facing problems one is inclined to increase control – but this won’t work now. Rather let go! Remember your humanity or for example some holiday experiences, when things also went differently than planned – and which you experienced as exciting and inspiring. At the end of June, you can again easily sink into your heart energy and relax.
Aquarius: An exciting month with nice encounters! Your creative side is now also booming. Take a stand for all that is worthwhile to you and look for friends and supporters to help you make your ideas come true. In the second half of the month, communication is under a particularly lucky star. By timely and wise communication of your undertakings, you manage to avoid unnecessary power tussles, because in this way, misunderstandings can’t even begin to develop.
Pisces: During this month, a lot runs way different than expected. You will need a lot of talent for improvisation. At the beginning of June, you have powerful opponents, but they can also become fellow players if you let yourself be inspired by their enthusiasm and dynamism. From mid-month onwards, oversights and confusions can occur. Pay close attention to your gut feeling, which will reliably inform you when something is wrong. At the end of the month, the situation relaxes and you get going again.
