This month of June is another rather intense monthly cycle for you, Pisces. Further transformation is indicated, along the lines that have already engaged you. You could be experiencing feelings of questioning your identity and current habit patterns, by turns optimistic and then not, with dark fantasies predominating at times, and then, rather suddenly substituting for these, sublime self-confidence in the face of change, ready to take on the world. Communication with your peers is similarly fluctuating, often leading you to lovely visions of a brighter future. Partners help you with all this, bringing a practical and spiritual perspective to the articulation of your own interior values. You are all the while investigating your most profound beliefs with an eye to their evolution, and this may come to a climax in the timing of the June 17th Sagittarius Full Moon. You are changing at the core, little by little, while exploring concepts of inner wounding in a new light. As they say, pain pushes until vision pulls.

This is a huge month for all of the mutable signs, but Pisceans are perhaps the stars of the month with Neptune in your home sign of Pisces acting as the focal point for a series of T-squares that are being made between planets in Gemini in your fourth house of home and family and Jupiter in Sagittarius in your tenth house of career. The other major transit of the month involves an opposition in the timing of the Sagittarius Full Moon, from Mars and Mercury in Cancer in your fifth house of creativity, good fortune, and children to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in your eleventh house of friends, allies, and groups.
The T-squares to your ruling planet begin with the New Moon in Gemini in your fourth house of home and family on June 3rd, followed by the Sun activating the T-square from Gemini on June 9th and 10th, and then the Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 17th, and then finally Venus in Gemini activating the T-square one last time on June 22nd and 24th. You are thus being hit by a series of squares, symbolizing conflicts, and yet having the potential for an optimistic resolution.
Whenever so many angular houses are activated by planetary transits, you can expect action and dynamism. This month is going to be busy. Secondly, with a New Moon in the house of home and family, you can expect that the cycle is rooted in changes and developments taking place in your private life, or in relation to home and family. However, given the benefic energy of Jupiter in Sagittarius in your tenth house of career, along with the Full Moon in Sagittarius in your career house this month, it’s likely that the developments happening at the roots will quickly blossom out into change and growth in your career. However, the most interesting part of these T-squares is the focal point of Neptune in your first house, which relates back to you, your sense of identity, life direction, and purpose, as well as your health and vitality. At best it looks like a moment of personal rebirth, redemption. You could be giving birth to a new child, a new life, a new career, or even reclaiming your health through a new diet or health regimen. On the flipside, prominent Neptune might also have you feeling lost, uncertain, or confused, even in the midst of a period of rapid growth and excitement.
As a Pisces, you are no stranger to complex emotional states, to riding the highs and lows of life thanks to an extraordinary sense of empathy, compassion, and imagination. The best advice of the month might be to embrace the paradoxes of confident uncertainty, faithful mystery, divine confusion or beautiful angst, even as you might be witnessing growth, success, or change simultaneously.
It’s also a great time to explore and examine your philosophical, religious, or political beliefs. It might be a good time to look at whether your private life and your work life are two opposing forces, and, if so, what might be done to bring the two together more closely.
The other major transit of the month is a long opposition from Mars in Cancer in your fifth house of good fortune, creativity, and children, to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in your eleventh house of friends, allies, and groups. This transit takes place between June 13th to the 21st and will likely involve a series of significant emotional conflicts or tensions that might be happening between yourself and colleagues, co-workers, or within groups you belong to, or possibly in relation to your children, or even a creative endeavor. You should be extra careful of putting yourself into emotionally volatile and competitive situations. Even if it’s “just for fun,” you may want to avoid situations where emotions could easily run high and spill over.
The oppositions from Mars to Saturn and Pluto also suggest that you could feel emotionally thwarted, drained, or conflicted, perhaps regarding different kinds of desires and responsibilities. This energy should pass by the time of the Summer Solstice, when the life giving and clarifying Sun enters watery Cancer and also moves into the fifth house, bringing some relief from the hostile tendencies of Mars.
Finally, on June 26th and 27th, the Sun in Cancer in your fifth house of creativity and good fortune will make a square to Chiron in Aries in your second house, bringing a moment of angst and yet also the potential for clarity and healing. This may be directly related to your children, your creativity, or possibly even your finances. If you are struggling with any kind of emotional self-destructiveness, the Sun’s transit to healer/sage Chiron could bring these issues to a head, and could therefore help you find the courage and emotional intelligence to move past any limiting ideas or destructive behaviors.
