We can enjoy our politics or we can feel frustrated by it, but as June begins we’re sensitive to the interpersonal dynamics in our families, circles and communities, thoroughly aware of politics in our social network and our national and international relations as Jupiter forms a challenging square to Saturn.
Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, symbolizes the liberal desire to generously give, to be free and expand our worldview, but it can create codependence. Saturn’s defining ring symbolizes the conservative, traditional, disciplined approach, which can slip into contractive restrictions. When they square off like this, we notice the tension between these principles, both in life and in politics, but it’s an illusion to think we can expand without discipline, or cut back without hope. We need both Saturn and Jupiter.
Neptune squares Saturn on June 17 and asks us to take the ideal high road, and the Summer Solstice on June 20 begins the harvest for fruit and karma. Our job is to meditate on a fair and healthy balance between discipline and exploration, and envision cooperation, in work, love, spiritual practice and community relations. Use this new stability to stay kindly centered around June 29 as Mars turns direct and releases blocked energies.
Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Although you are usually confident, some recent uncertainty may have unsettled your way of operating.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Notice how your family’s attitude towards money and resources helps or hinders you, and choose to take a creative approach to free this pattern.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…So many people want something from you that you may feel stretched thin as the month begins.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Express yourself!
