Mercurial Messages through the Zodiac
We may feel like pollen blowing on the summer breeze as June begins. The Sun and Mercury in mutable Gemini help us adapt to new situations, meet new people, be flexible and adjust to changing schedules. Our feelings are deep and generally stable as Venus in earthy Taurus trines Pluto June 2.
Our thoughts join our feelings in the depths and our memories sit with us after June 4 as Mercury enters oceanic Cancer on June 4. Make plans for the summer with chosen or biological family around June 7, as Mercury sextiles Uranus. Summer romances and interesting new connections began to blossom as Venus enters Gemini June 8 and Mars trines Neptune June 14. Stay alert for important new connections.
Mid-June helps us feel excited to tackle real work but also potential cranky frustration as Mars and Mercury, both now in self-protective Cancer, oppose serious Saturn. We may feel pulled between our responsibilities and summer joy, and need to find a balance between obligation and what feeds our life force. These issues can intensify and stimulate confrontations, which echo in the headlines June 18-20 as Mercury and Mars conjunct in Cancer and opposed Pluto. Step beyond the confrontation and find the creative solution.
Summer begins on June 21 as the Sun enters Cancer. Let dinner-time conversations become an enjoyable performance art after Mercury enters Leo on June 26.
