June will be a very dynamic month as the planetary aspects between Mars and the North node opposing Saturn and the South Node have potential for conflict and negativity. We start off on June 3rd with a new Moon at 12 degrees of Gemini opposite a retrograde Jupiter in Sagittarius. This could mean things get exaggerated with communication regarding an international situation. Religious zealotry could also be extreme and in focus at this time.
Venus is still in the sign of Taurus, her domicile, until the 10th so a lot of the negativity will be tampered by this. However, June 6th could be difficult as Venus will occupy the same degree as the fixed star Algol, a malefic energy that has a connotation of beheading, mob violence, extreme sickness. Sounds kind of nasty doesn’t it! The ancient astrologer’s descriptions of certain stars’ energies have quite a bit of this kind of language.
Then Mars, at 17 degrees of Cancer, gets revved up with a conjunction to the north Node on the 12th which feels like some kind of threat is exaggerated and this energy continues through the 14th as Mars opposes Saturn in Capricorn and the south Node. Mars has a warlike energy and is currently “out of bounds” meaning it is traveling beyond its normal declination in its ecliptic, which brings big bursts of energy. Mars occupying the sign of Cancer also brings extremes in water, heavy rains, flooding and higher than normal tides. Mars opposite Saturn in earthy Capricorn can also trigger earth changes or volcanic eruptions. In short, there’s a lot going on in the middle of the month! Saturn in opposition to Mars wants to suppress and curb the energy but is capable of harsh punitive actions as well.
Mercury joins Mars from the 16th through the 18th so the expression of aggression gets triggered again. The full Moon on the 17th feels like a relief as the Moon is conjunct Jupiter at first but the next day it then passes over the combined forces of Saturn, the south Node and Pluto. People with planets in the middle degrees of the cardinal signs (16-23) will feel this most intensely.
This energy is particularly heavy on the 18th and 19th as this lunar occultation with Saturn and Pluto will take place each month for the next 10 months so it would be wise to be kind to yourself and others as we go through this transformation period which continues to intensity through the March of 2020. Take it easy and avoid difficult people or situation if at all possible.
Developing some kind of spiritual practice will help you navigate the difficulties ahead, even if it is just reciting a simple mantra to keep you centered. Breathe in and breathe out consciously. Neptune goes retrograde at 18 degrees of Pisces on the 21st which will bring the oceans, water purity and availability issues to the forefront over the next 5 months.
This is where we are at, folks, kind of a breaking point in the frustrating energies of 2019 but remember love is greater than fear, always.
