Faery Guidance for June 2021

Bright Spark





 








 

A little flash of inspiration or a bright spark is sometimes needed because it can be so difficult to figure out what's going on. Life is a total mystery. People who are close to you may seem to be speaking another language. Or you just can't understand how they could possibly do or say the things they do. So you need a key.

You need that little bit of brightness to illuminate the miasma of confusion surrounding you. Let the Bright Spark light up your life. It's only a flicker, but it's just enough to let you glimpse the direction you should take when trying to understand a seemingly incomprehensible situation. So often it only takes a tiny amount of understanding to turn a situation around, and once you can see the way ahead, you can help others to understand as well. Only one person needs to have a spark of inspiration in any given situation. Let it be you!

Celtic Tree Month June 2021

June 10th begins the month Duir (Oak) - The oak is the most revered of all Celtic trees, bestowing great power and breadth of vision. The oak engenders self-confidence and optimism, the ability to cope with danger and difficulty, and high standards of morality and the determination to tell the truth. Uncontrolled, the oak’s powerful energy can lead to being overly demanding or interested in the pursuit of glory.

Oak people are robust, courageous, strong, unrelenting, independent, sensible, do not love changes, they keep their feet on the ground, and are people of action. Their greatest personal asset is a sense of optimism and the ability to speak the truth no matter what the consequences may be. A lack of discretion can, however, be their weak point. Even when faced with overriding stressors, the oak person comes out on top better and stronger and more grounded than before. Instead of bending under stress and hurts, Oak people adapt and grow until they overcome the hurts, pains or stressors.

Void of Course Moon Schedule for June 2021

It is said that when the Moon is void of a course it can cause delays, false starts, and unexpected hassles. When the Moon is Void of Course it means that it is in the process of moving between two signs and is not quite sure how it feels yet. And since the Moon rules our emotions, we don't know how we feel either! The effects can last from a few seconds to a day or two. Energy can feel off balance and this is not a good time for making major decisions, signing contracts, or doing anything based on emotional decisions because our perceptions are a bit out of whack. The Void Moon begins at 27 degrees in one sign and ends at 3 degrees in the next sign.  Times given are for GMT.

What's New This Month 

June Blessings everyone! Hard to believe we are almost midway through 2021. We've been slowly getting back to "normal" after over a year of pandemic lockdowns and changes to how we do things day-to-day.  As usual, I will be celebrating my birthday on the 3rd and will be taking a break for the first week of June. We also celebrate Father's Day, Litha/Summer Solstice, and continue the Eclips season that started in May.

June's specials include some Faery readings, a Midsummer's Dream tarot readings, and a Summer Solstice Tarot reading to celebrate Mid Summer.  So be sure to stop by and have a look at the  Monthly Specials section.  You can have a browse through the many specialized readings I offer on the  Tarot Readings page.  Tarot's Life Path & Personal Growth section is a good place to start!  Or take a wander through the various Oracle readings on my site, like Rune, Angel, Faery and Animal Totem readings.  All of these categories can be found on the main Reading Room page.  Don't forget to check out the other areas on the Readings page, like the Oracles, Rune and Animal Medicine Cards sections.

If you have a website or blog that you need some creative content writing for, I offer my services as a freelance writer. You can check out my basic prices at Faery Scribe. I've written for several sites, such as Natural News, Jules of the Earth, Hirewriters and a number of private clients.

If you're looking for some unique handcrafted items, come visit, Faery Trinkets where I will have my Barefoot Sandals, bracelets, earrings, necklaces and crochet items on display for sale. I'll be adding some crocheted items as well soon, and you can also find these items in my Etsy shop.
 

In the Reiki/Energy Work section, you can find reiki and energy work to help give you a bit of a boost. You can find Reiki sessions, Chakra Healing and Attunements, Violet Flame healing, and the Avalon Crown of Success healing. Reiki is great for flushing out the old energies that may be lingering both in our own energetic bodies and the environment around us.

If Astrology is your cup of tea be sure to stop by my Astrology section where you can order some insightful Natal charts, Compatibility reports and Transit reports to see what will be affecting you in the months ahead. Each persons Birth Chart can show how the positions of the planets and stars at the exact time of their birth can influence their life. Learn how each planetary position has determined your physical, personal, psychic and spiritual characteristics! These charts are a great gift for birthdays or just as a special way to treat someone to a bit of astrological insight.

Come and check out my Blog that at http://earthspirittarot.com/wp/   I hope to be writing on a variety of topics from Tarot to general spirituality topics once we get into the New Year.  But for now, you can catch my weekly Astrology updates there. 

You can follow me on Facebook and keep up with the latest planetary transits: www.facebook.com/pages/Earth-Spirit-Tarot/202568966439

The Monthly Raffle is still on hold for this month. but I am aiming to add it back by July!

You see, the lightness of this month is asking us to stay focused in the here and now, but also to use it as a foundation for the future. We must all remember that everything is connected, and it is in the here and now that we create the foundation for the lives we want to live in the days and months to come. We are all being asked to let go of what is standing in the way of us claiming all the strength, all the talent, and all the connections which are out there for us. We have to gracefully surrender to that which is changing, and not let what is good stand in the way of us finding what is better, what is best for us.

This is also a time for making connections on all levels. Call upon your power allies and your totems as well as your advisers and the support of your loved ones. We are all being reminded of the vast potential and resources which are around us, if we would only reach out and make use of them. We are on our Spirit-filled paths. We are being given a chance to walk with purpose. We are on the threshold of our authenticated lives. If we would just embrace the gifts that we are being given, and go where we are being led, then we cannot help but be successful. That's what real magic is all about.

Until next month, be blessed, and don't hesitate to contact me if there is anything I can do for you. I'm here to help.

Love,

Charlie

                                                                                               
  June 2021 Celebrations


 
FATHER'S DAY - June 20th

The United States is one of the few countries in the world that has an official day on which fathers are honoured by their children. On the third Sunday in June, fathers all across the United States are given presents, treated to dinner or otherwise made to feel special.

The origin of Father's Day is not clear. Some say that it began with a church service in West Virginia in 1908. Others say the first Father's Day ceremony was held in Vancouver, Washington.

The president of the Chicago branch of the Lions' Club, Harry Meek, is said to have celebrated the first Father's Day with his organization in 1915; and the day that they chose was the third Sunday in June, the closest date to Meek's own birthday!

Be sure to let your father know how much he is loved and appreciated this Father’s Day. I would like to honour the Dad's in my life who have inspired me as well: My Dad, Tim, for his wicked sense of humour (which I have inherited), his ability to view things in a different perspective, teaching me how to never giving up, and still letting me be “Daddy’s little girl” at 40. My Step-Dad, Joe, for teaching me and getting me started on my spiritual path when I was young. My ex-Dad in law who passed from this world a few years ago – Geoff you had the patience of an angel, even if you were a bit quirky!

Litha/Mid Summers Eve (Summer Solstice) - The Solstice falls on the 21st and Litha on the 24th of June

Midsummer, or Litha as it was known by the ancient Germanic peoples, refers to the period of time centred upon the summer solstice and the religious celebrations that accompany it. Also called "Midsommar" in Swedish, Midsummer-related holidays, traditions and celebrations, many of which are non-Christian in origin (apart from the designation "St John's Day"), are particularly important in Finland and Sweden, but found also in other parts of Northern Europe, Britain and elsewhere.

Solstitial celebrations still centre upon June 24, which is no longer the longest day of the year. The difference between the Julian calendar year (365.2500 days) and the tropical year (365.2422 days) continue to move the day associated with the actual astronomical solstice forward approximately one day in approximately every seven centuries.

Star Transits For June 2021


SUN TRANSITS

The Sun has been in Gemini since May 21st    

Knowledge and diversity motivate us with the Sun in Gemini. We are more sociable, intellectual, and insatiably curious under this influence. We tend to scatter our energies as a result of this curiosity and awareness of all of our options. We are more communicative and versatile, but we can also be unreliable. Picture it as sunbeams shining in many directions at once. 

When the Sun is in Gemini, communication of all sorts becomes an effortless, instinctive and enjoyable activity, even for those of us who would usually feel reticent about speaking up or sharing our feelings. This Air Sign instils in us a restless energy and a thirst for new knowledge and experiences. Love initiated at this time will certainly be based on an intellectual connection; sparks will fly as freely as witticisms and ingenious ideas. While thoughts will flow easily, the Gemini Sun also brings with it a keen scepticism. This isn't cynical scepticism, though -- it's motivated by an urgent need to know the truth. The Gemini Twins are curious seekers. Gemini's influence also grants us some much-needed flexibility and a playfully realistic attitude about ourselves. Careful not to get irritable if everyone's not moving as quickly as you -- and watch for idle gossip! 

The Sun in Gemini is a good time for:

  • Getting your point across, writing letters or speaking in public
  • Initiating flirtatious new friendships
  • Taking short trips


The Sun then moves into Cancer on June 21st  

The Sun's entry into Cancer marks the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the start of Winter south of the equator. It's a major turning point of the year in which we grow more conscious of our roots and the family patterns that continue to shape our lives. The point, however, is not to reinforce fearful habits by constructing barriers to the world. It is, rather, a reminder to give birth to ourselves, to connect the past and present and create a future appropriate for tomorrow instead of clinging to the limits of yesterday. 

When the Sun is in Cancer, things may get a little moody and emotional. While Cancer motivates us to reflect on our pasts, to draw our loved ones near to us and to nurture others without asking for nurturing in return, this Moon-ruled Water Sign can really make us grumpy. That said, Cancer could be a time of heightened emotional sensitivity, a time when the cerebral connections forged under the Gemini Sun move to a more intimate plateau. Flirtatious affections take on a greater gravity during this time as the Cancer Sun exposes our emotions and lays bare our vulnerabilities. Socializing takes a backseat to nostalgic memories and quiet nights at home. Food and family become very important at this time, as they provide us an opportunity to nurture one another and give us the most basic and unconditional of loves -- the very thing we need most right now. 

The Sun in Cancer is a good time for: 

  • Taking personal relationships to more substantial, serious levels
  • Staying in and looking through old photo albums and scrapbooks
  • Perform nurturing, domestic activities like cooking or gardening



MOON TRANSITS

On June 10th we have a New Moon in Gemini

New Moons are a time for new beginnings and in Gemini, our basic instinct is to communicate, think, and learn. We are motivated by a desire for variety and by an instinctive curiosity. The Moon in Gemini is light-hearted, breezy, and curious, but it can also be restless and fickle. 

We do tend to feel two ways at once and don't get too deep into either polarity. Habits are in a cycle of change; variety satisfies a deep inner need. Being on the go and keeping a finger to the winds of change make you feel in touch. Learning and communicating scratch an instinctive itch. But oh, how short the attention span is when the Moon is in Gemini. There's a restlessness in the air. We want to be out and about, seeing new things and socializing with new people. 

It's a great time to catch up with friends or send out lots of emails and text messages. The communication is short and fast. We meet n' greet, but aren't in the mood for anything too heavy. We are exchanging tidbits, facts, witty observations. It's a good time for tying up loose ends, as long as no serious thought is required. 

The Moon is the instinctual side of life, so when there's a lunar Gemini mood, the trickster is afoot. Humour becomes a way of defusing super serious situations. It's also a time for experimentation. You might change your outfit many times, or coax out one of your lesser-known personalities. Watch out for the appearance of the evil twin, who utters things that you don't really mean, just to say them. There may be no rhyme or reason for behaviour-thoughts-feelings today, and it's all okay. 

Things to do under a Gemini Moon:  play with children; talk with your siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins; go shopping; attend a festival of shorts (theatre, films); collect leaves or identify local mushrooms; experiment with your style; add some flair to your Facebook profile; tell some funny jokes; create a collage; go on a short trip; take a trip to the library or bookstore; flirt and smile at strangers; create an alias

On June 24th we have a Sagittarius Full Moon

Full Moon's are great times for releasing, harvesting, and letting go. The Full Moon part of the moon's cycle brings about the culmination of plans to maturity. It is also believed to be the time for ending or letting go of many situations in our lives. In this instance, we are asked to let go of old dreams before pursuing new ones.

The Moon is at her most optimistic and upbeat in Sagittarius. We are motivated by a need to seek the truth, and we are ready to pursue a new vision. We are not interested in details just now. Instead, we focus on the big picture. New experiences and adventures satisfy a deep emotional need. Spontaneity is the key. We may also be inclined toward overdoing and overstating. We don't want to plan ahead, and prefer to "wing it".


The Fiery energy of Saggitarius will give us the courage that we need, to be honest with ourselves, as well as with others. It gives us a boost of confidence that can help us face our truths head-on, and then move on from them. It helps us to let go of past trauma so that we can evolve into our true selves.
 
Things to do under a Sagittarius Moon: philosophizing with friends; making travel plans or travelling; socializing; making new friends; creative improvisation; inspiring yourself and others; watching comedies; riding horses; walking dogs; trying new exotic cuisine; working out vigorously; making love gymnastically; do some strength and endurance training

PLANETARY TRANSITS


June 2nd - Venus enters Cancer
Under the watery sign of Cancer, we find that our relationships shift to family, loved ones, and those in our support group for a bit. The love planet feels warm and caring in Cancer and we tend to feel a sense of safety in familiar places. We also tend to attract those to us who have a good deal in common with us. Our interactions will take on a quality that could seem to echo our past. So we may find ourselves wanting to connect more, or, if memories were not positive, then we could be pushed towards avoiding these things.

During this time any new and different experiences will feel less appealing. Our sensitivity increases where getting our emotional needs met is concerned. Some interactions could bring out a deep need to belong and bond on a personal level. 

We want to feel secure and this need could manifest in many ways now. Directly it comes through as feeling vulnerable, and indirectly we can feel defensive. We also become protective of what is close to us and what makes us feel secure, such as finances, possessions, and resources. One thing to be aware of is the need to be able to be kind but not clingy. 

June 2nd - Sun sextile Chiron (Sun in Gemini, Chiron in Aries)
Today the Sun is in a harmonious transit with Chiron, the planet of wounding and healing. Wherever Chiron falls in our natal chart will show us where we have been wounded and the key to healing. Having the Sun shed its light on those wounds can lead to a release from our bonds to our past bringing healing and wisdom.

Look at the chronic struggles you have had going on in your life. This transit can help you to find new inspiration, motivation, or the confidence to rejuvenate our waning enthusiasm. While this may be a gentler aspect, we still will have to make the effort to bring it all together. One of the positive effects of this transit is that it can bring us the opportunity to walk on our own path but in a new way. It also could allow us to take a deeper look at our worries and discouragements to bring new insight into how we may be sabotaging our conscious efforts on a subconscious level.

Of course, this means having to face our fear of failure and low self-esteem before we are able to move past those feelings. The thing to remember with this transit is that we are not tapping into its benefits because we are failing in our life. It’s the new potential that becomes available under this transit that brings a response to these new concerns that are rising to the surface.


June 3rd - Sun trine Saturn (Sun in Gemini, Saturn in Aquarius)

The Sun is energy and Saturn is discipline, and the Trine is the most supportive transit of them all. We tend to feel more up to the challenge of tackling projects that require real discipline and organization. And our hard work can really pay off now! Keep in mind that we are still in Mercury retrograde though and this can cause some obstacles. Try not to give up at the first sign of resistance!

This can be a really down-to-earth transit. It brings us back into contact with ourselves and helps us to get to know ourselves through our relationship with, and our effect on, our environment. This is a time to examine your habits, your home situation, your work, and everything else that is important to you. Determine how they work on a practical level. Begin organizing your life and making an overall plan. Even your relationships should be supportive now.

June 3rd - Venus trine Jupiter (Venus in Cancer, Jupiter in Pisces)
The love and money planet, Venus, is trine Neptune today which can bring about a time of romance, creativity, and feeling a sense of oneness with the beauty of nature. This can be great socially and intimately because things tend to run more smoothly as well as adding a touch of magic to the pot. It’s important however to be very clear about what we truly want!

With romance planet Venus mingling with Neptune, we find that we are more intuitive when it comes to dealing with others around us now. It's like we can instinctively read the mood of an individual or a situation, which can help us to detect any signs of dishonesty. We also tend to feel more inclined to think about the welfare of others more, putting friends and loved ones first when they need some comfort.

Where money and material things are concerned, this can be a time of abundance and blessings for many. Opportunities could seem to come from nowhere (Ace Of Pentacles comes to mind with the hand coming from out of the clouds). Since Venus rules over love and money, our intuition could pay off in making decisions in these areas too, although those of us who are more idealistic could get pulled into projects that seem worthwhile, sound great, but promise unrealistic or impractical rewards. It may be a good idea to get a second opinion if you feel uncertain. Many see this as a time of abundant blessings and resources may seem to come out of nowhere. BUT…yes there is always a but….it can also be a time of overindulging and over-spending then leaving us to ponder where the money went. So try to keep it balanced! It's ok to treat yourself to something nice but don’t go on a wild spending spree.

Our creativity gets a boost as well with this transit, allowing it to flow freely. This can make it hard to focus on those technical details right now though. It's a good transit for letting go of worries and allowing ourselves to really feel the connections we have to life and to others. It's a transit that makes happiness infectious-especially with people we enjoy being around.

Being a time of creativity, romance, and a sense of our oneness with the natural beauty we find all around us can make this a very positive time for social and intimate times. Another positive aspect of this transit is that it allows our natural and unique beauty to shine through. So go on and take a peek from behind that façade of mystery and illusion you may have created. This is a time when we can see the very best in others, and they in you as well. It’s a great time for negotiations, interactions, attractions which all seem to flow effortlessly.

Another warning here as well! This can open us up to seeing wonderful traits in a person that are not really there. It can be helpful to get a second opinion from a trusted friend or family member though. So allow your inner warmth and beauty to radiate under this transit. You may even see some wonderful qualities in others that you haven’t noticed before. Make sure that you are being clear about what it is you truly want though and with any important choices, be sure you use a good dose of reality.

June 5th - Mercury square Neptune (Mercury in Gemini, Neptune in Pisces)
Under this transit, our mental focus can feel a bit clouded, confused or lethargic. Our mind struggles with trying to tackle and understand the limitless expanse of the Universe we live in along with what is formless and shifting. We can experience some disillusionment or disappointment in our observations or communication with others.

This is an important time, however, to break through old and rigid expectations that may be blocking our ability to see the bigger picture. We find that what flows beneath the surface of the events in our life needs to break down the thin barrier of our old expectations which are barring the path and view of a truth that is greater.

Many of us may feel a bit out of whack and off-balance. We'll need to balance our left-brain analytical side with our intuitive right-brain thinking by being less rigid and more open to a new perspective. Otherwise, we will find the left-brained analytical side a bit hard to work with right now. Listening more and talking less will help our inner sensitivity to be more receptive to what is being said. Sometimes it requires us to let go of what we think we know and understand about the situations in our lives in order to make ourselves more open to new perspectives that can change how we have been dealing with things.

June 5th - Mars opposite Pluto (Mars in Cancer, Pluto in Capricorn)
The intense energy continues as Mars challenges "burn your bridges behind you" Pluto. Avoid obsessive-compulsive people, or at least give them extra space so they don't go off on you. Mars and Pluto doing battle in the skies can create a very intense showdown! This is a time when tempers can flare, power struggles can emerge, and aggressive action could seem like the only way to handle a conflict. If you feel yourself becoming entangled in a mounting tension with someone, you might do well to back off a bit to let the adrenaline subside on both sides.

The upside here is that this is a time when we are challenged to assert ourselves and strengthen our spirit, which can often be brought on by confrontation. This is the kind of atmosphere where our interactions with others can bring out deeply hidden and intense feelings inside us, which long to be expressed but are usually suppressed instead. This is an opportunity to observe what gets triggered inside of us and what kind of interaction triggers those feelings. It can be valuable to use the experience as a way to vent old frustration, work through unresolved anger, and ultimately heal our deeper wounds by letting go of whatever holds us back. Sexual energy can run very high under this transit, so handle it wisely.
 
June 10th - Sun Conjunct Mercury (Both in Gemini)
We tend to have a lot to say when the Sun conjuncts Mercury. We are compelled to communicate; letters, memos, phone calls, texts...messages of all kinds have a stronger impact under this aspect than usual. We may find that we acquire and distribute information quite accurately. Some may choose to take some short trips now to keep themselves, and their minds, busy. However, because of the varied interests we have right now, we may find it hard to rest, or find the time to do it!

Many may find that they express their confidence through their plans and ideas now. We may choose to initiate new activities that involve sharing our ideas, teaching others, or writing. Whatever information comes our way at this time, we will surely be physically up for the challenge of sorting through it all.

June 11th - Mars enters Leo
Fire meets fire today as Mars moves into Leo. Our fiery Mars feels right at home in Leo where creativity, confidence and charisma flourish. Sometimes these positive attributes can come at a price though. We may see or experience excessive pride or conceit which can turn every act into a performance where spontaneity is inhibited by a hunger for approval. Innocently enjoying self-expression with art, romance, fun and games can really balance the ego’s constant need for attention. Remember, Leo is our inner child and children often cry out for attention...so make sure you are paying attention to yours.

Emotional and physical energy can run high right now so this transit is a great time for any work that requires drama, courage, creativity, and confidence. However, this also means that you are unlikely to get motivated for those things you should do, but really do not want to do. Put your energy into those activities that call to you on a heart level.

It is also a playful energy that can lead us to throw off our inhibitions to express that brilliant part of ourselves that wants to shine. We need to take care though as anger and aggression can be brought to the surface under this mix. If emotions are based on a sense of defensiveness, lack of self-confidence and self-esteem, or just a knee jerk reaction to unconscious assumptions, we could be seen as being overly dramatic or downright arrogant. On the other hand, if you are one who usually blends into the woodwork and finds it hard to express yourself openly, then this energy can give you that boost of courage, motivation, and inspiration you need to break free of whatever holds you back.

June 12th - Venus square Chiron (Venus in Cancer, Chiron in Aries)
With Venus in a challenging Square to the Wounded Healer, Chiron, we may find that we are forced to make some adjustments in our relationships or finances. We may find that these areas are not balancing out and coming together as we would want them. That feeling of “cant’ win for losing” could be a familiar one under this transit as we find the more we try, the more we feel we are going round in circles.

So, healing in relationships and balancing our finances may seem difficult to obtain as our efforts feel blocked right now. That doesn’t mean you should give up or stop trying though! Because under this challenging transit we may find a way to push past issues and find a solution that will work, even if it is not necessarily what we hoped for or expected at this time.

One of the things I have noticed with this transit is that we may find we are dealing with others who are doubting our character, so we feel forced to have to “prove” ourselves. But this is not the way to go because it can be misinterpreted as weakness and make things worse. What is needed is to stand up for ourselves by not falling into a pattern of sucking up to people who we love, and who are supposed to love us back. While just giving in may seem the easier route, it won’t get past the core issues.

June 13th - Venus sextile Uranus (Venus in Cancer, Uranus in Taurus)
This is an unpredictable transit and can feel quite exciting for the social aspects of our lives. We may find that enjoyment pops up where we least expect it. Anything that breaks away from our routines will feel like a very welcome change. We want to interact with others who are offbeat, interesting and just plain different from what we usually are attracted to. This is also a good time for standing apart from the crowd if you want to attract the types of people you wish to be around. Highlight your unique qualities and let them shine now. Oh, and do be careful that you don't allow boredom to push you towards doing anything too reckless.

June 13th - Sun square Neptune (Sun in Gemini, Neptune in Pisces)
The Moon went into its Void of Course this morning which will add to this “lost in space” feeling of the Sun Square Neptune energy. This is a transit that can bring confusion our way with a bit of turmoil that can lead to self-doubt. We may find that objects, people, names, and directions get lost, forgotten, or misplaced. Our hopes, ideals, and wishful thinking tend to be inflated to the point of causing disillusionment and disappointments. In some cases, we may want a dream to happen so badly that we disconnect ourselves from any reality that seems to stand in our way. However, we may soon come to discover that the “obstacle” in question really had a positive purpose in the end.

Our imagination is extremely active under this transit and may feel out of balance and out of control. It’s a time where we may feel that our hold on life is being undermined and many may feel drawn to escaping the chaos. However, we would do better to accept that chaos rather than trying to run away or avoid it. Accepting it will help to reduce or eliminate the distortion of whatever reality we are dealing with.

For some, energy levels may feel a bit low and some may experience disappointment or feel unusually discouraged by any obstacles that pop up now. Distinguishing between what is fact and what is fiction can be a real challenge so make sure that if you agree to anything at this time, you are doing so with your eyes wide open.

It isn’t all bad though. This can be a very creative time for those who are able to harness their imagination and direct it towards something productive. Our longings run especially close to the surface now too which can bring a chance for us to learn a bit more about the hidden forces which drive us. On a spiritual level, this could be a time when we discover that our yearning for enlightenment isn’t so straight forward as we thought. However, the path can be just as valuable to us through discovering what “isn’t” the best path forward. There really is a tremendous opportunity for spiritual, creative, and healing to be discovered.

On an emotional level, we may feel discouraged and overwhelmed by this energy. But we also get a chance to examine our inner depths, those which tend to be camouflaged by our day to day life. It’s ok for some harmless escaping such as going to a movie or enjoying something distracting. But we need to make sure we avoid being totally irresponsible too. Some may feel their imagination is being stimulated but when it comes time to actualise those ideas they become stuck. Another thing to watch for is deceiving others in an attempt to avoid confrontation. Too often those white lies will be revealed when we least expect them to. Try to avoid wallowing in regret and guilt over what you feel are “inadequacies” at this time too. Focus on things that can help boost your self-confidence and work positively on the things we feel we are lacking now.

June 14th - Saturn square Uranus (Saturn in Aquarius, Uranus in Taurus)
With Saturn forming a square to Uranus, there can be tension experienced as our needs for freedom and spontaneity seem to clash with a need for structure and stability. Ideally, we can find creative ways to satisfy these diverging needs, perhaps by giving form to our ideals and quest for progress.

Rules and limitations can feel more challenging to tolerate, but without some lines drawn, life feels too chaotic. Attempts to assert our individuality, freedom, and originality tend to undermine our feeling of groundedness and security. Yet, we are not satisfied when we conform. There may be sudden and unexpected twists that force us to do something different or free ourselves from old habits.

Adjusting our plans may be in order, and striking a balance between convention and innovation is the challenge. Setbacks tend to be temporary and often lead to new, more creative paths or solutions. While this aspect is active, however, we can feel some real frustration.

There can be elevated frustrations related to differences in opinion that feel more problematic than usual, blocking progress or leading to delays. People we relied on may seem less reliable at this time.

Regarding this specific aspect today, we have an unusual situation in which Saturn, the conservative planet, is in a progressive sign, Aquarius, while Uranus, the progressive planet, is in a conservative sign, Taurus. At times, these energies can feel oppressive and we might feel that we’re often at cross-purposes, even when the end game is similar.

June 20th - Jupiter goes Retrograde in Pisces
A retrograde Jupiter brings with it the deep desire to gain insight through an inwardly directed search for truth and spiritual principles. This means that your answers to philosophical, moral and spiritual questions are more likely to be based on intuitive realisations than on the tenets and dogma of organized religion.

But this also means that you can be at odds with the commonly held ideas of this culture, where material acquisition matters more than and the riches and abundance that may be found within.

When Jupiter goes retrograde it changes our perceptions and perspectives. It allows us to gain a new level of enlightenment because we can go deeper within ourselves. It's a great time for improving ourselves and preparing for when Jupiter moves forward again, bringing bigger and better things our way. 

June 21st - Venus trine Neptune (Venus in Cancer, Neptune in Pisces) 
The love and money planet, Venus, is trine Neptune today which can bring about a time of romance, creativity, and feeling a sense of oneness with the beauty of nature. This can be great socially and intimately because things tend to run more smoothly as well as adding a touch of magic to the pot. It’s important however to be very clear about what we truly want!

With romance planet Venus mingling with Neptune, we find that we are more intuitive when it comes to dealing with others around us now. It's like we can instinctively read the mood of an individual or a situation, which can help us to detect any signs of dishonesty. We also tend to feel more inclined to think about the welfare of others more, putting friends and loved ones first when they need some comfort.

Where money and material things are concerned, this can be a time of abundance and blessings for many. Opportunities could seem to come from nowhere (Ace Of Pentacles comes to mind with the hand coming from out of the clouds). Since Venus rules over love and money, our intuition could pay off in making decisions in these areas too, although those of us who are more idealistic could get pulled into projects that seem worthwhile, sound great, but promise unrealistic or impractical rewards. It may be a good idea to get a second opinion if you feel uncertain. Many see this as a time of abundant blessings and resources may seem to come out of nowhere. BUT…yes there is always a but….it can also be a time of overindulging and over-spending then leaving us to ponder where the money went. So try to keep it balanced! It's ok to treat yourself to something nice but don’t go on a wild spending spree.

Our creativity gets a boost as well with this transit, allowing it to flow freely. This can make it hard to focus on those technical details right now though. It's a good transit for letting go of worries and allowing ourselves to really feel the connections we have to life and to others. It's a transit that makes happiness infectious-especially with people we enjoy being around.

Being a time of creativity, romance, and a sense of our oneness with the natural beauty we find all around us can make this a very positive time for social and intimate times. Another positive aspect of this transit is that it allows our natural and unique beauty to shine through. So go on and take a peek from behind that façade of mystery and illusion you may have created. This is a time when we can see the very best in others, and they in you as well. It’s a great time for negotiations, interactions, attractions which all seem to flow effortlessly. 

June 22nd - Mercury turns Direct in Gemini
Today is the day we have been waiting for when Mercury finally starts its journey forward. Keep in mind that situations will still feel a bit slow going until Mercury has picked up speed and resumes its normal momentum. It's akin to feeling like we are coming out of a fog in some instances. From this point onward we may feel a bit of confusion, mental intensity, some miscommunication and possible an overall change in our outlook.

While Mercury was in Retrograde in Gemini we were challenged to rehash, revise and rethink things that needed a bit of tweaking and fine-tuning. Now that Mercury is direct we begin to form clearer decisions that emerge as a result of those struggles and issues. In some cases, we will have a complete turnaround in our perspective that lets us look at those situations with fresh eyes. Just remember that it will take a couple of weeks for Mercury to be back in full swing, and for things to fall into place and sync up.


June 23rd - Sun trine Jupiter (Sun in Cancer, Jupiter in Pisces)
Today the Sun moves into a supportive trine aspect with Jupiter. According to the ancients, this is one of the most positive transits. With the Sun and Jupiter working together we are able to work in harmony with our environment radiating warmth and generosity to those around us. It is a time when our understanding of the great Big Picture clears and we start to understand just how we fit into it all. As a result of this, our self-esteem and confidence soar. We start to see new possibilities and opportunities, to the point where we feel we have a bit of luck on our side.

It’s a really good energy for situations where we need to present an idea or project and need to get other people on board. Our own sense of confidence and optimism can more easily sway others to see our view of things. Public speaking gets a boost here, as well as writing because we feel we can express ourselves easily. Our minds turn to philosophical and idealistic subject matters and our physical energy gets a boost too.

Our insight into our lives becomes a bit brighter, inspired, and optimistic and some may feel very connected to spiritual energy right now. This can help us to find new meaning for ourselves and the world around us. Some may feel inspired to fight for a cause or some justice they feel passionate about.

One thing to watch for is allowing our sense of “knowing” and self-assurance go overboard, leading us to be too overly confident or overindulgent. We need to make sure that we are grounded in humility and realistic views to make it all work well.

June 23rd - Venus opposition Pluto (Venus in Cancer, Pluto in Capricorn)
Today we have an opposition between a protective Venus in Cancer and a disruptive Pluto in Cancer (and a side of Uranus thrown in there for good measure) going on that can work by pulling us apart in order to allow a transformation within our value system. Use this energy to look at who and what is supportive of you at this time and release what needs releasing. We could see power struggles being provoked as well as spur of the moment surprises

With these two planets in play, we could experience challenges or feelings of great intensity for those areas mentioned above. Now is the time to dive deep into those personal issues that are associated to our values, finances, resources and relationships. However, doing so means that you will have to delve beneath the surface of those issues in order to discover any patterns that you may not have noticed before. Such patterns can be an indication that we need to acknowledge and come to grips with our shadow shelves such as obsessions, hidden agendas and our most secret desires. This gives us a chance to learn how we project our shadow selves onto other people via the way we interact, our expectations, fears and hopes.

June 25th - Neptune goes Retrograde in Pisces
Neptune turns retrograde in its home sign of Pisces, a mutable water sign, and won’t move direct until December 1st.  In astrology, Neptune, the mythical ruler of the sea, is associated with fantasy, illusion, escape, creativity, and dreams. When retrograde, the Neptunian fog is lifted, and you have the ability to see past the illusions that have been holding you back. This will allow us to manifest hopes and dreams that align with our new reality.

June 27th - Venus enters Leo
Love is magnificent and grand. We take pride in love, and we are generous with our money as well. This is a warmhearted, teasing, expressive, proud, and extravagant placement for Venus. Love is a bit of a game--a game that is perpetual, as Venus in Leo is forever stuck in the romance stage of a relationship. We feed on attention, acknowledgement, validation, and adoration. Venus in Leo loves to be adored, pampered, and admired. Pride and passion are hallmarks of this cycle. We have a strong ego investment in our love lives during this period. The negative expression of this placement is overstating our feelings, simply for the effect, as well as extravagance.  

This can be a very creative time, as Venus' love of beauty combines with Leo's creative flair for the dramatic. Find ways to feel good by making your surroundings and yourself beautiful and reflective of your inner spirit! High fashion and vogue style are "in," and crudeness and ordinariness are out...unless you want to turn them into a fashion statement. ;-) However, it's probably wise not to become so identified with the outer appearance of yourself or others that you lose sight of the person, situation or context that it's all happening in. The aim is to pamper yourself with pleasures that enhance your quality of life, without inflating your ego with synthetic self-esteem and glamour without substance. Relationships, interaction, finances, values and resources all need to include ways to express your identity, valour and "heart." Some light-hearted fun and play can be a good place to start. 

June 28th - Mars sextile North Lunar Node (Mars in Leo, North Node in Gemini)
For a couple of days prior to and after today, it can be a time when opportunities seem to just come our way. And taking action could bring results or implications that reach much further than we expect. Some may notice they feel more energetic, passionate or motivated than usual, therefore making them find it easier to get moving on those projects and plans they've had on the back burner. Others may find that, if they take those steps and move their bodies towards what they want, the incentive and energy may propel you to keep going with it.

Bear in mind that, this energy could come in any form, not just positive energy.  It can come as anger, vindictiveness, hostility and rejection as well. So use this opportunity wisely!

What to watch for in July 2021!

Pallas and Chiron go Retrograde, Vesta moves into Libra, Ceres moves into Gemini, Mercury moves into Cancer at the start of the month and Leo towards the end, Venus and Mars come together in Virgo, and Jupiter moves into Aquarius.
