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.
How are you? My head is spinning. The crazy just never seems to stop, and I am hanging onto the roller coaster for dear life, hoping not to fly off into oblivion. Everything seems to be chaotic, friends and family struggling, people going through massive change or meltdowns, road rage seems to escalate every month. But I am trying to remain calm by reminding myself that these ARE crazy times, the chaos will give birth to the new, so for now we have to keep on keeping on.
The reason is that the "other side" is so powerful right now. We are growing more and more dissatisfied with this world. We see the flaws, the futility, the stupidity and we're just sick and tired of it all. We must make changes to ourselves AND the world. We must give our spiritual life more importance and live as examples to others of how to incorporate our divine connection to our worldly days. And when we do that we can't help but see the wrong doing, the selfishness and the greed. It's almost nauseating. And this intolerance is what WILL change things. Neptune is helping us by fine tuning our senses so that we feel there is more to life than this.
And Mercury, about to go retrograde on the 18th in its home, Gemini, is squaring Neptune making our thinking muddled as the spiritual pushes into our lives painfully like a woman giving birth. Our mind must learn to adapt to what is not necessarily logic, what can't be explained in usual terms, but adapt a knowing of something more, something here with us, something whispering to us, and opening the light up in our eyes so we see things as they really are, not as they appear to be. These too enhance our psychic senses..hunches, premonitions, feelings....of something more, even a vision of more. Actual psychic practitioners will see their skills enhanced, and perhaps an overflowing of people contacting them with trivial crap thinking its so very important when its not.
It's time to set our priorities straight. What is important and what is crap you crave in your life that leaves you unhappy and wanting? Focus on real not on media images of real. Nothing could be further from reality than the media. They are there to SELL you stuff...products, ideas and lifestyles. I know people who "have it all" and they are miserable, because the media hoax is never going to bring you happiness. Be thankful, even for a parking place, and focus as much on the good as you can in this crazy world with so much pressure. Be thankful for that warm bed you crawl into at night, be thankful for your health, be thankful for your friends and pets, be thankful for every little thing in your life.
I've been having vivid dreams lately, of gifts coming from out of no where, surprising big changes out of the blue, and I do feel like I am on the verge of something - but timing is blurred and Neptune likes it that way. I have faith it's coming, I believe. It's all I can do. Let go and let God, while continuing to try.
Jupiter, the planet that rules spirituality, and gives us hope, is rubbing against Pluto, the ruler of the underworld who tends to see the darkness while Jupiter encourages us to see the Light. Believe that spiritual matters are taking over, and will create balance between yin-yang, positive-negative. Balance is coming for sure, but it will be a bumpy ride on the way there. Grow your faith. It will make the rise so much easier. Are you talking to your Angels, God, Guardians, Guides, Higher Self? Well do it, make it a habit. Just keep dialoguing and the connection grows and you are "help" from unseen forces that will get you through.
Saturn is also squaring Mars now. Venus just went into Cancer, a place where love matters at a core family level, and making security in love very important while it's making another adjustment to Saturn's placement, giving us few answers. Mars is in Gemini where lots of energy is available for action....but Saturn is saying slow down, not yet. And the Sun is in Taurus, where you lose that marvelous Aries energy and almost feel like just laying in bed all the time its such a change in dynamics. We're in a boxing match and we can't see or feel the punches, but they are coming at us, invisible sources of change pushing and pulling us, leaving us spent, tired, depressed, angry and mostly frustrated. Not much seems to be moving forward, set backs are common, and we have to keep trying even though a drink sounds better than trying. it is so NOT a time to indulge in drugs and alcohol too much. Neptune lures you in, to forget the problems of this world, and before you know it you can't live without it. Be strong. You have to SEE and be a part of the changes, not a time for hiding or closing your eyes.
Look within. It will help so much. Forgive yourself and start anew. Make real change and live from your heart. Release selfishness and be concerned with all of us and our future. Be kind and generous with your time and your love. Find joy in the little things. Keep trying no matter how often you fall down, you'll appreciate it so much more when you finally accomplish your goals, but they will change from your original concept to the final outcome. Think of others and fairness and decency. And love yourself, flaws and all. No such thing as perfection in this world. It's all an illusion you know.
