Mercurial Messages through the Zodiac
June begins with song; we network through sound and word, weaving our communities together. Birds serenade and cajole one another, politicians twitter news bites, and our feelings are processed in quick conversations over garden fences and through social media. Information flows; we can enjoy the song and explore possibilities but may find no true conclusions in sight.
A pleasant and flirtatious sextile between Venus and Mars runs through the first three weeks of June and encourages summer romance, creative process, and a chance to strengthen the resilience of ongoing relationships through shared experience. The first week of June sparkles with nervous energy and extraverted flirtation. The mood grows more intimate and calls us home as Mars enters sensitive Cancer on June 4 and Venus enters earthy Taurus on June 6. Families and politics grow more self-protective.
On June 9 Jupiter turns direct after a long retrograde and new opportunities begin to unfold. Mid-June brings a confusing time as Mercury squares Neptune, while Neptune retrogrades, but follows with action and decisions around June 18 as Mercury opposes Saturn. The month ends with athletic or contentious and bittersweet moments as Mars squares Jupiter. Let’s use our energy wisely to step out of contention into compassionate action.
Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Action, reaction; the month begins full tilt. Networking is your key, take every opportunity. Your energy turns inward mid-month; redefine your home but exercise patience, not protection, with family. Look for help in surprising places, spirit speaks to you through the supporting hands of community.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Early June engages you on stage, pulls you out of your shell and into socialization. Mid-month, tend to your material resources with perceptive generosity, but monitor the honesty of those you deal with. Have patience through confusion. Lend your strength, not stubbornness, through any domestic kerfuffle as June fades.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)…Scintillate, but perceptively notice when the people around you are ready to talk, ready to listen, or when they need time alone. Life speeds up after June 6; be ready to multitask, cross pollinate, and make necessary adjustments. Friends may be less available timewise, but more emotionally present. Don’t break up dogfights, but do be ready to mediate during the last week of June.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)…So much is going on inside of you, your inner world runs epic novels, but few people know what’s going on with you unless you tell your story. Mid-month, every drop of objectivity helps you stay present and in the moment, connected to your resources. After the solstice, you feel more at home, and now your leadership can help others choose healthy calm.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…Friendships and social warmth enliven early June, but your nervous system may need distressing. Be kind; unusual shyness comes mid-month. Keep a steady hand on the tiller. Notice what is lovable about yourself, and nurture it. Make difficult adjustments with grace as the month ends; people respond to your goodwill.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Converse rather than debate. Work and multi-tasking demands keep you moving as the month begins, but don’t forget to stop and connect in true soul contact. Mid-month, remember spirit works with you, as you’re not doing this alone. During the last week of June, convert temper spikes into productive action and creative solutions. Stay heart-connected.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Peace be with you. Relationships can feel rough-and-tumble, but offer an opportunity to break habits — dysfunctional interpersonal habits — and find a new, more authentic way forward. Listen deeply mid-month before jumping to conclusions. Feed collaboration, not collision, at work and in relationship to authorities as the month ends.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…Tend to health and digestion issues as the month begins, take responsibility for your moods and all the sound, experience and food you take in. Soothe rather than stress. Curiosity is peaked mid-month, but there’s more to the story. Make considered decisions in a feisty time as the month ends.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Loving, if chaotic, changes on the home front need your patience and flexibility as the month begins; tend to your nervous system and commune with nature often. Significant others, coworkers and advisers need to talk, change their minds often, and call for your goodwill. Find a healthy balance between your needs and theirs.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan.19)…Responsibilities can be sweet as the month begins, if you can find peoples’ discombobulation charming. Don’t do their work for them; do encourage them supportively. Stand firm around June 18; when in doubt, organize rather than act. Practice impulse control, and work towards the good of all, one issue at a time, in late June.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…So many words fly this month. Work your network; metaphysically work with guides, guardians and visualizations to bring in all non-corporeal allies, and back that with practicality, connect with old friends and business contacts, new leads for work, and in a mental way, with websites and tweets. Weave possibilities.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…Social life and creative exploration simmer on the front burner as the month begins. Look for opportunities to create new connections, or understand the old ones more deeply. Mid-month, look for hidden stories. Don’t absorb others’ tension towards the end of the month; instead, bring our minds back to connection and to beauty.
