June brings a break from the non-stop intensity of 2014. The Mercury retrograde from the 7th through the 30th urges us to slow down, look within, and integrate the emotional and mental shifts we’ve made this year.
Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Write a short novella or rambling pamphlet about your parents from the point of view and in the language of your 8-year-old self. This will free your mind in ways you can’t imagine. When we finally allow our inner children to tell their unedited stories — and we actually listen to them — they no longer need to sabotage our adult relationships.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Acknowledge your insecurities this month. All of them, especially the ones you try so hard never to think about. Say ’em out loud, or write them down. You’re beautiful, you’re talented, and you work harder than the rest of us combined. If you’d just accept yourself completely as you are, you could have almost anything you want.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)…Use the Mercury Retrograde to discover where you need more self-esteem. Then allow yourself to utilize your curiosity to find the esteem-building program or method that will work for you personally. You could make a whole lot more money from this point forward, but you have to understand and align with your true worth.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)…The New Moon in your sign on the 27th is a chance to remake yourself into who you want to be. To maximize this opportunity, you need to de-focus from the workaday world and let yourself dream. Talk to the people inside your head and actually listen to what they’re saying. Seeing how you constantly project your past onto your present is the key to your personal renaissance.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…Look back over your life and identify the most consistent pattern of self-sabotage. You could transcend that pattern now, but you’ve got to look at it unflinchingly and with self-compassion. Acknowledge how your self-negating behavior represented an attempt to keep yourself safe. Then focus your mind on a commitment to giving your sweet self what he or she really deserves.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Your expenses may be much higher than normal, but so is your earning potential. To unlock the latter, you need to get real about what you really, really want from life. Then dedicate yourself to that goal with the same diligence, constancy and integrity you consistently apply when serving others.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…By the end of the month, you’re tuning in to a new vision of what you can do in the world. The problem up until now is that you haven’t really believed that what you want is possible — or permissible. Once you uncover and challenge the core belief that keeps you playing small, you’ll find doors magically opening where before there were only walls.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…The belief that it’s not safe to trust people is based in legitimate experiences. But it’s also self-perpetuating and it blocks you from the abundance you could be enjoying. June challenges you to discover this unconscious belief system and bring compassion to the wounded part of you that clings so tightly to it. Are you ready to come out of your mine and be loved and supported?
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Look honestly at the places in your relationships where you either hold on for fear of losing security or just let things slide because you don’t want to have to say no. You’re a shining star! You could probably have your cake and eat it, too — once you learn how to communicate your feelings as information, not evidence.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…The best work experiences for you are the ones where you get to play with information, using your mind to solve puzzles and find workable systems. Treat your most important relationship (the one you have or the one you want) like that kind of job this month. Whenever you feel stuck, engage your curiosity — and remember that a relationship is a job, a puzzle and a game all rolled into one.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…When your mind is always a step or three ahead of the rest of the world, it’s easy to develop the habit of holding yourself back. Your job this month is to uncover the core belief about life that blocks you from bringing your boundless mental creativity into everything you do. Let yourself flow and life will flow to you.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…There’s a tape loop playing in your subconscious that says unbounded creativity and security — be it financial, emotional or psychological — cannot coexist. This belief was modeled or imparted by a parent, so it seems true to your inner child. But the truth is the more you surrender to your creative genius, the more secure you feel, no matter what your circumstances. It’s time to live in truth.
