The astrology of June features Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Neptune and Pluto. With Mercury Retrograde for the past two weeks, from the time of the recent mid-May New Moon, we are seeing the world around us through a lens of introspection and serious purpose. This is especially so, since Saturn is also prominent in this month's astrology, being then opposed by the Sun and Moon, and by also Mars. The symbolism of Jupiter, bringing his positive and expansive vibration, is invoked in this cycle as well, because at that timing Jupiter closely aspected transformative Pluto and was in exact bi-quintile to Chiron, the Wounded Healer. This indicates that when we look inside, and sincerely try to understand our innermost motivation, the rewards are available in terms of discovering where we have suffered trauma in the past, and may yet heal. By removing obstacles to growth in this way we release stuck psychic energy and free ourselves up for moving ahead along the arc of development that we have always, at soul-level, intended. Thus we can finally accomplish getting to where we have always needed to go, if only our fears did not hold us back.
Mercury is still retrograde at the beginning of the month, in its own sign, stemming from just one day past the recent New Moon of two weeks past, so that this entire lunation cycle, culminating in the first two weeks of June, is characterized by the reflective nature of this time. During this period, we are not only more internal in our thoughts, and in the way that we communicate to our peers, but we are also concerned in a very fundamental way with addressing the issue of our values; we might want to reflect on the question of those aspects of our lives that we believe to be basic, and cherish most deeply. Mercury stations to direct motion on Thursday, June 11th, and does not escape its retrograde shadow until June 26th.
Because this month has so much emphasis on Neptune, there is a spiritual quality to these investigations, and also a feeling of oneness and compassion that is palpable. Everyone is also subject to some degree of confusion and illusion at this time, because Neptune's etheric energy does not blend easily into the exigencies of earl-world activities. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, highlighted in this month's configurations, is along with Neptune also located in mystical Pisces. This is an indication of the spiritual connection that we must now make to the cosmos above us, and to our own deeper nature that we can find deep within ourselves, if we want to make progress on our own healing and on that of the world.
The seriousness and slowing down of Saturn in the early degrees of Sagittarius that also strongly characterizes this timeframe implies that while you might encounter great difficulty in getting done what you want to accomplish, the lessons involved will be longer lasting. Saturn in early Sagittarius is about to cross backward, on the evening of June 14th, into Scorpio, indicating a distinct shift in the energy to be expansive and in touch with the desires of the cosmos for you to grow. This is followed by the dynamic late Gemini New Moon, leading to an exciting final two weeks of June, full of powerful positivity and soul growth, as well as new ideas for getting on with the arc of your individual development.
With the massive changes that are happening now, I highly recommend that folks get a transit report tailored specifically to their chart for the most accurate description of what's in store for you in the months ahead.
