This is your chance to get things right and move things on considerably in one or more of these areas. In fact, this is something that’s been building since last summer when Jupiter, planet of opportunity, entered Gemini and this same sector of your chart.
This is another chance to make things happen in a big way with your friends or a group of people. This may involve social media or your involvement in a club, group or society. It may be about planning a school reunion or getting together with your friends to either have the holiday of a lifetime or create a business together.
Where in your life would creating your own tribe or group benefit you? What can you and your friends pull off together that you can’t do on your own? Depending on your situation, this may involve, work, childcare, pleasure or support. It’s about a project that can be inspirational and impressive when it has significant backing, because it’s about the power of the people.
The key dates are the 8th when there’s a New Moon in Gemini, brilliant for new beginnings or launching a new project. As it’s a Saturday, this is also a great day to be sociable and hang out with new and old friends alike. The really fantabulous date this month, however, is the 19th when your ruler the Sun makes its annual connection with Jupiter, the luckiest planet in the heavens.
This has got to bring opportunity your way and the possibility of joining together with others to complete what you began 12 months ago. This is the culmination of Jupiter’s time in Gemini and your friendship sector and it suggests a celebration but also a chance for freedom. Jupiter doesn’t like to be tied down but wants life to be expansive enough to soar free.
The summer solstice on the 21st is the start of a significant turning point although you’ll have inklings before then that a shift is taking place. The 21st is the day that the Sun moves into Cancer, the sign before yours in the zodiac, the sector of your chart that rules what’s hidden, secrets and retreat.
On the 26th, Jupiter joins the Sun in Cancer and more importantly will reign supreme in this sector of your chart for the next 12 months. For some, this is the start of a spiritual search; for others, a need to slow down and take things easy. You’re dealing with what’s unconscious rather than conscious and what’s hidden rather than obvious. It may be a slow process of discovery and you will find yourself drawn more to the past and letting go.
This all coincides with a powerful triangle of planets in the heavens. This month, it involves the personal planets but next month it will involve Jupiter in a grand trine that’s both emotional and sentimental. The two planets that are the key to the grand trine are Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces and together they can turn dreams into reality and allow your imagination and fantasies to take shape and form.
This is the positive aspect to this planetary combination but it may also be a confusing or unsettling time. A lot depends on your past actions as there’s a karmic feel to this grand trine that links your past and where you come from with your life in the here and now.
As you have the taskmaster of the heavens, Saturn down at the base of your chart, you are tied to your past in some way or other and where family’s concerned your fate is more closely connected with them. This could play out in a myriad of ways but either emotionally or financially you’re interlinked or connected with your family or your past.
Trust your intuition and do what feels right rather than what you think is right. It’s also important that you take your time and don’t let yourself be rushed into making a big decision. Mercury, the planet of communication, turns retrograde on the 26th in Cancer and it’s only when Mercury turns direct in mid-July that you will have all the information you need in order to decide what next.
Same goes if you’re involved in an affair or a secret liaison. Venus enters your sign of Leo on the 27th which is glorious for love but with Mercury on go slow, there are some bits of the puzzle that are missing and again it won’t be until mid-July that you feel sure of your next steps. Enjoy life’s simple pleasures and remember to stop and smell the flowers. The big changes are taking place within yourself and it will take time before you understand what’s happening more fully.
