Starwise Forecast for June 2015

I am working on finishing up the Gemini 2015/16 Astrology Reports and should be announcing their availability soon.

Compared to recent months this month of June looks to be pretty harmonious on the whole. There will be lots of Gemini, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius harmonious aspects going on.

Although we do enter June on the day before the Full Moon on the 2nd.

2 – The Sun in Gemini/Moon in Sagittarius Full Moon Opposition. Gemini is ruled by Mercury and related to mental, intellectual pursuits. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter and related to the ‘Higher Mind,’ i.e. long journeys, philosophy and education. They can mutually stimulate each other, positively or negatively.

They also aren’t always easy to integrate. Gemini can attune to intellectual details and intelligent communication, which in this case is the conscious Solar energy. And Sagittarius wants to expand the bigger picture beyond limits, whether through travel, philosophy, or large parties, which in this case is the Lunar unconscious energies. Getting them to integrate and serve each other is the order of the day.

5 – Venus goes from watery Cancer into fiery Leo, until July 19.
Mars sextiles, harmonizes with, Jupiter in Leo. Power in communications inspired by creative, altruistic, optimism and confidence.

6 – Venus in Leo trines Saturn in Sagittarius. A fiery Leo/Aries harmony connecting Venusian emotional feelings with Saturnian positive qualities of commitment, dedication, and loyalty. This responsible/emotional dedication can help to manifest Sagittarian beliefs and Leonine romantic, creative aspirations.

8 – Sun in Gemini sextiles, harmonizes with, Jupiter in Leo. Some more Leo harmonious support. This time for the positive conscious intellectual, mental qualities of the Sun in Gemini.

9 – Mars in Gemini sextiles, harmonizes with, Uranus in Aries. Mars in Gemini, a powerful mental, intellectual expression. Uranus in Aries, courage to be different and to fight for new freedoms from old patterns that have outlived their purpose. Here they can mutually support and benefit from each other.

10 – Mercury in Gemini sextiles, harmonizes with, Venus in Leo. A good time to communicate those heartfelt idealistic romantic notions.
Later in the day the Sun in Gemini harmonizes with Uranus in Aries.
Similar to the Mars/Uranus sextiles on the 9th. This time it brings in a conscious Solar awareness to the intellectual expression and new freedom.

11 – Mercury stops moving retrograde and goes direct.

12 – Neptune goes retrograde, moving backwards, until November 19th.

14 – The Sun in Gemini conjuncts Mars in Gemini. A very powerful time for mental expressions that require intelligence and courage.

Later Saturn goes from Sagittarius back into Scorpio, until September 18th.

21 – The Sun enters the month of Cancer with the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. It also happens to be Father’s Day in the U.S. Cancer being the Archetypal sign of the Mother there is perhaps the potential of a ‘Divine Marriage’ on this day.

22 – Jupiter in Leo trines, harmonizes with, Uranus in Leo. This is a really positive period, harmoniously uniting Jupiterian enthusiasm engaged in Leo creative, leadership and/or romantic ideals; with Uranian freedom, intuition, and capacity for unconventional surprises blessed with fiery Aries energies of courage and dynamism.

23 – Mercury squares Neptune, yet again, as it did on the 29th and 9th of May at which time I said:

Mercury in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces. Mercury likes being in Gemini, and Neptune likes being in Pisces. But this strong Mercurial mental energy squaring this strong Neptunian spiritual/emotional energy can bring out the worst in each. Mercury in Gemini can be critical or unfocused, and Neptune can be out of touch with reality or identify with the victim or martyr.

This is the last time for about 6 months that we will have to deal with this kind of Mercury/Neptune tension.

24 – Mars goes from airy Gemini into watery Cancer until August 9th.

29 – Venus in Leo trines, harmonizes with, Uranus in Aries. Uranus with Venus always creates an ‘unconventional approach to affection.’ In Leo, Venus is very romantically idealistic. With this positive Uranus in Aries freedom and quirkiness available, it can allow that Leo idealism to find the surprise, unique expression you would normally never think of. Or be surprised by how your ideals can still happen.
