The Sun moves into Cancer on the 21st at almost 6AM. Gone are the social days of Gemini and now its time for "nesting". Be with good friends and family. Share. Be emotional and expressive. Be Thankful. Wrap yourself in the love of your friends and family. Bond with BBQ's, picnics and parties.
On Monday the 23rd (till July 17), Venus the planet of Love, leaves its home in Taurus and moves into Gemini. Meet the love of your life at a lecture, in line for a movie, in a bookstore, at a concert. Spice up an existing relationship by taking a weekend trip to some place you'd never been before. It's a time for lighter love, fun, laughter, shared experiences. It will offset the deep emotionalism of Cancer Sun right now, but not completely. One foot in two worlds for a few weeks.
Retrograde Mercury is now back in Gemini, Venus in Gemini and Gemini moon the 24th and 25th. Someone from the past may show up. Wait until July 2 when Mercury has gone direct to make judgements when your mind is more clear. This final week of Mercury Retrograde is always a mess, esp in its own sign, so buckle up and be ready for lots of frustration. Breathe and try to relax. You can't fight the elements right now, so better to surrender for a while.
June 25-26 Mars opposes Uranus. This is danger time for social unrest and violence. Could be severe lightening storms too thanks to Uranus. Just lay low if you can. Don't pick a fight. People are on edge big time. Protest with caution as the push back could be quite fierce.
Friday the 27th has a morning and mid-day Mars Inconjunct (an adjustment is needed) to Saturn. Steady and determined, not fast or angry, will get you where you want to go. New Moon in Cancer that same day is good for Cancers to start their new year now and make changes to make your life happier. Reconcile with friends and family on this day and give each other a fresh start.
Sunday June 29th, Venus in Gemini is Square(stressful) to Neptune in Pisces. Don't be a victim, or fool yourself. You just aren't seeing things as they are. And Mercury is still retrograde. Make no decisions if you can help it. Mercury goes direct on the 1st, but give yourself a couple of days to be thinking clearly again.
I was going to talk about money manifesting after so many people sent comments. But I had an interesting week I thought I'd share. We'll talk money next week.
I had a birthday, which was mostly a week of being ill. I got an infection and was bed ridden for several days. I am not a good patient. I get bored, restless and feel trapped. I spent a lot of time thanking my body for being so strong most of the time.
But I also know that getting bed-ridden is the Universe forcing you to face yourself, to examine and explore. And so I did. I met parts of me I don't like to see; parts of me that embarrass me; parts of me I completely avoid. I watched a lot of old movies and cried a lot. It felt great. Release that pain. There is nothing like a good cry. Its an emotional cleanse. It also releases stress. Include forgiving yourself in those cries.
For several months I have been pushing myself to the limits, and completely crashed from not taking care of me. This time of illness has renewed me in some ways; it has given me new insights, new goals, the desire to set new patterns, and to let go of the past and really start anew. And its also time to start to love myself more. I am such a harsh critic of myself, and find myself sorely lacking in so many ways. I don't know why we find it so hard to love ourselves, see our greatness, our growth and our connection to Spirit. Each one of us is part of, literally, the Creator. How can we be lacking? Make a list of everything about you that you really like, and turn that into love. When someone compliments you, take it in and hold it close and let it touch you. Allow yourself to be vulnerable enough to be loved on every level of life. You ARE worthy. Let the good stuff in. It won't come if we fear. Fear is the great blocker of EVERYTHING. Focus on the good, the positive, the best in the world, and we manifest the best around us in our daily lives, and also change the world, one drop at a time.
Now go look in the mirror and say out loud to yourself, "I love you so much. You are amazing!!"
It's summer now, enjoy!
