Sale Ends July 6 at Midnight.
This month, Scorpio, makes for a rather intense continuation of changes that have been ongoing. Your focus now involves partnership in your life, including intimacy, and the way that you undertake communication with others around you, and, as well, with your own creative self-expression. With Venus retrograde this month, and later Mercury also, you have been operating in a mainly introspective mode with these matters. You are turning to the inside in order to better understand your interactions with others, and with hidden parts of your own psyche. Being Scorpio, you are no stranger to your depths, and this focus might seem familiar to you. The solstice eclipse and New Moon of June 20th represents a potent juncture, and gives you fresh energy for internal exploration. Your personal evolution demands that you go into core issues at this time, and take them seriously. Your communication with others around you is changing in the direction of expressing, more than your head, your heart.
The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Elodie St-Onge-Aubut of Ninth House Astrology
Venus retrograde in Gemini is bringing a lot of questions surrounding intimacy issues with partners, or any of your joint ventures. A period of reevaluation is taking place as some partnerships may have reached their end while new ones are emerging. There are a multitude of options available but it might be a question of which one is the best long-term strategy. If there is anxiety surfacing, that is your cue that adjustments are needed. The current state of the world is perhaps making you rethink what you want versus what is wise. Being reasonable has never been your forte, and your instinct is correct in telling you to keep moving towards your goals. Your collaborations are everything right now, and your intimate partnership seems more essential than ever. Contracts with others could however feel complicated. Venus moves into her inferior conjunction with the Sun – as part of her retrograde cycle – on June 3rd. An opportunity for clarity presents itself now, and there is gain possible through self-awareness and honesty. The conversations currently taking place are opening your perspective although perhaps without any clear resolution in sight.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius taking place on June 5th is the first eclipse on the Sagittarius-Gemini axis since the Nodes of the Moon have changed signs. The light of the Moon shines her light on your finances, however this is not merely a normal lunation. Rather, it is the beginning of a process that will take you all the way to the end of 2021. This process could involve themes surrounding your financial situation but also how you want to make your money. Things might not become totally visible until the solar eclipse in Sagittarius in mid-December of this year. However, a chapter is coming to a close as you prepare to reevaluate. You are adjusting your values, your worth, and what you have to offer to the world in general. Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn rules this particular lunar eclipse, which renders things a lot more complicated. Jupiter is a planet associated with potentiality but in the contractive sign of Capricorn it could feel like there are no good options available at the moment. This is visible on a bigger scale with the state of the world and the uncertainty we are all experiencing. Everyone is at the moment having a hard time conceptualizing the future. You will have to be patient with your situation, and plan accordingly so that you proceed with caution, and do not act prematurely.
The Sun squares Mars and then Neptune in Pisces during the second week of June which leads to the Last Quarter Moon in Pisces on the late evening of June 12th. You could feel pressured trying to stay in your personal creative flow while being at the mercy of other people’s expectations. You have a lot of energy right now for projects and situations that engage your imagination and your sense of wonder. Don’t try to suppress your need for joy. Create the proper space to experience the limitless flow of inspiration that wants to surface. The more you resist it the more resentful you will get.
Mercury stations retrograde in the sign of Cancer on the late evening of June 17th. Long-term goals, academia, education and traveling plans come up for revision. You will need to rethink a situation before you can move forward. If you were supposed to travel somewhere there could be issues around getting there, or in crossing borders.
The Sun enters the sign of Cancer on June 20th signalling the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. This of course also marks the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. A few hours later a solar eclipse occurs when the Moon enters Cancer and meets with the Sun. This annular solar eclipse is the last one in Cancer from a series that began in July 2018. This eclipse sits at the zero degree point of Cancer in connection with your worldview, your outlook, and philosophies of life. A cycle comes to a close, and a new one begins. You have learned many things that opened up your mind in the last two years. This Cancer season could very well be a period of integration in connection with all of the mind-expanding opportunities, and educational experiences, since 2018. Your shift of perspective will slowly trickle down in all the areas of your life allowing for a new horizon to emerge. The more receptive you are, the more obvious these new possibilities will become.
Venus in Gemini stations direct on the late evening of June 24th and slowly, your relational dynamics will start to make more sense. Your ruling planet Mars enters the sign of Aries the evening of June 27th where it will spend the next 6th months, due to his upcoming retrograde next September. This is a significant time for Mars to spend in one sign, prompting you to pay attention to your routine, your health, and your work habits. Logistics will become increasingly significant while Mars transits in Aries. If you are looking to get rid of some bad habits while implementing a better health regimen, you are in the right place. Mars here will lend its support.
Your work routine and habits are highlighted the last few days of the month as Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn conjoin for a second time on June 30th. The earlier conjunction took place on April 4th. This one is making you aware of logistical issues and how you divide your time. This might have come up before, but it now comes up again, and must finally be addressed in order to arrive at more efficient methods to streamline your workflow.
