This month is a lot about introspection despite the more social energy that planets in Gemini emit. Mercury is at the peak of its retrograde, and being in at home in Gemini, its a very potent retrograde. The great part about a retrograde is that it is at its best for completion of things. Things we began a few months ago, get completed now. Its time for soul searching, thinking about your life and how you want it to be vs how it is. Its a time to "fantasize" about what could be, no matter how silly or impossible it seems at the moment. When you have that down, then think practically about how to make it so. Get off the treadmill, and make a path for yourself that leads to fulfillment and happiness. And then ask the Universe for help to make it so.....because it WANTS YOU TO BE HAPPY, and can make things happen even when you can't see how. Just believe it. Dream it. See it.
Think about this and carefully ponder it later. The PURPOSE of all this change is for us to change into HAPPIER people. Life here is hard. Too hard. Find a path to take you to a happier life...how can you change and make it so; what will you sacrifice to make it so? What is happiness and a kinder world worth to you? This whole thing is a process of figuring out the life you want (an outline is all you need, fill in the details later), then ask yourself what it would take to make that happen; and start taking steps to make it so. How can you live your life so that you can give a lot of good vibes to the energy pool, helping the transition to a new kind of consciousness where we are fair, kind, intelligent, always learning, helping others, being centered and grounded. You're not being punished, you're being asked to change so life isn't so hard for you. it's time to turn left or right...NOW.
But our brain is also feeling fried right now. Dealing with chaos, real and imagined, is a tough one. Just hang in there, June 11th it goes direct and by the 15th we should be feeling saner, and the chaos will stop in our minds at least.
Saturn is still retrograde, having just touched back into Scorpio again on June 15th. Being in aspect to Pluto will create mass consciousness shifts, and political tensions for change. Saturn is also in aspect to Jupiter, giving us the ability to complete those changes and come up with big, practical ideas. June 8th Jupiter trines the Sun in Gemini...a very good day of potential and breakthroughs. (Keep practicing that soul searching now.)
Mid June Mars and the Sun travel side by side and give a great intensity to our energy. Get stuff done quickly now, make those moves, finish a big project - the wind is at your back if you can stay grounded and use the energy vs forcing an explosion if untapped. Add to that energy is Jupiter trining Uranus on the 22nd. Expect lots of surprises, meeting foreign people, going on a learning streak with great gusto are all possible. Be lighthearted and free, and enjoy this ride of the unexpected, which may well be quite a lot of fun.
And if that wasn't enough, the New Moon in Gemini is June 16th. Begin a new project in earnest by the 20th or you miss your window of opportunity. Gemini is the sign of the twins, two directions finding harmony together, using the mind to get you there, and the heart to keep the connection to God strong and constant. Gemini opens new doors to thought, so you can do the work to find your way. It is also a social time, lots of communicating and short trips. Your mind is a wealth of information now, sit with yourself and ponder who you are, who the universe might be, and what you can do to make your life a joy everyday.
On Friday June 5th Venus enters Leo....time for big, overflowing, outrageously over the top love! Open your heart and just let those feelings loose. Share you love in every way. Open the door and let it in, it will be a roller coaster ride of peak excitement. Its also an exceptionally long Venus in Leo...usually 3 weeks is double that. This could be a "summer of love" aspect.
On June 12th Neptune goes retrograde....time for inner work, spiritual musings, and looking at past ideas about same. Soul searching is the key, so don't waste precious time not doing it. We've all got to get deeply spiritual or we're lost. The world is in chaos now, let your spirituality ground you and sustain you by anchoring yourself to the divine to get you through all the changes we are facing.
After the 21st planets start to move into quiet, home body Cancer. Enjoy the activity till then, and cuddle up in your home after that to relish your living space, your family and friends.
The time we've been waiting for is here. Face your demons and grow! The new world begins with you.
