Overview: June kicks off with an active New Moon in Gemini which includes a grand cross of planets in the four mutable signs (Neptune in Pisces, Saturn in Sagittarius, Moon and Sun in Gemini, and Jupiter in Virgo). New information, new energy is circulating in our lives. Cultivate openness to outcomes, flexibility with your mindset, and double check the details if something feels off. The astrology in the sky is asking us to adapt and change our thinking, outlook, and attitude. Own your own process and see where it leads you.
6/1-2… June starts out with a strong desire to focus on our spiritual evolution. We may want to dissolve some beliefs that are no longer serving us. Be easy about it. Find new ways to be kind to yourself and accepting of your past.
6/3-4…New Moon in Gemini…One great way to utilize Gemini energy is to get curious and explore your options. As our breath brings new oxygen to our body, Gemini brings fresh thinking and perspective to any stuck/rigid places. This new moon is an especially good time to pay attention to how powerful and influential the stories we tell ourselves about our relationships can be. Experiment with a new storyline and see what shifts for you. With a grand cross of mutable energy, there will be a lot of energy and information swirling around. Don’t get swept up in the stories before double-checking the details. If you do feel overwhelmed or scattered, take a break and go outside, exercise, eat some food, whatever you can do to be grounded, in your body and in your own experience. We may need to remind ourselves that what other’s think of us is really none of our business, as we may be quick to jump to judgment or assumptions about what is going on on the surface of things when there is no way we can fully know all the context of another’s experience. Chose your conversations and sources of information wisely to help create a healing, compassionate storyline for everyone involved.
6/5-6…After the new moon, we are in the mood for comradery and conversation. Connect with like-minded souls to explore and connect.
6/7-8…Ramadan begins on 6/7, launching a month of fasting from sunset to sunrise for practicing Muslims. There are many aspects of spiritual fasting, one of which is being mindful of the kind of information we are absorbing outside of our self that informs how we feel and what we think about ourselves, others, the world, etc. If it feels good to you, give yourself permission to abstain from any news sources or conversations that don’t serve you. Or wait until later in the day to listen to the news if you don’t want to cut it out completely and watch how it changes your day and mood. Part of the final weeks of the Mars retrograde is realigning our personal energy to that which supports us in thriving and telling a powerful, healthy story about our energy and our path. Be purposeful about what information you absorb as it informs and impacts how we see ourselves and others.
6/9-10…We may need to think quickly on our feet about a situation. According to the peaceful martial art of Aikido, two of the main principles in conflict is first demonstrating victory over yourself and your impulses and second, becoming one with both sides of a situation. Remember these principles to avoid getting knocked off balance during your day.
6/11-13…This weekend, make sure to get enough sleep and plan for some naps. Neptune turns retrograde on Monday, which means it’s a good time to tune into your inner guidance, for meditation, artistic and creative endeavors. Our soul is yearning for some nonlinear, unplanned, right brain activities. This can be very renewing for our spirits. Be careful of overdoing with any drugs (alcohol or otherwise), as we are typically more sensitive and open during Neptunian times.
6/14-15…The sun makes a nice aspect to Uranus, bringing a synergy of energies/opportunities for a fresh, new approach. You may be amazed at all of the ground you covered during the past two weeks, emotionally and mentally. Take a step back to tap into the larger system you are a part of to get a new perspective.
