This is an important month for you and as June begins there is strong focus on your opposite sign of Gemini.
Gemini is the sign that rules your relationships, both personal and professional and whether you’re taking advice from others, giving advice or teaming up with others in joint ventures and close partnerships, it’s a big month for your one-to-ones.
One of the planets in Gemini as June begins is Venus, the planet of love and relating and Venus remains in this sector of your chart until June 17th. This is always an important time of year for your love life when Venus blesses your relationship sector.
However, Venus isn’t sailing through Gemini all on her own and in fact, Venus is part of a dynamic Grand Cross pattern in the skies. This means that when it comes to love, nothing is straightforward.
This Grand Cross indicates tension, conflict or opposition. Whatever changes you make or initiatives you begin this month, everything is connected and, therefore, has a knock-on effect in other areas of your life.
You might be in a relationship or marriage and changes in your own life or your partner’s life necessitate a rethink, a reshuffle of priorities. You might not have a safe base at the moment, a place you call home and changes with regard to your family affect you personally or your relationship.
It depends on your current situation what this means for you but the time you will first notice any tension or conflict is at the New Moon on June 5th. The New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings, a chance to start over, a good date to set new intentions and take the initiative.
This New Moon falls in Gemini and your relationship sector but it is opposed by Saturn in your own sign of Sagittarius and square to Neptune in Pisces, your home and family sector, and Jupiter in Virgo, your career sector. Therefore this Grand Cross is pivotal to your foundations.
What’s important to know with this Grand Cross is that all the planets involved are in the four mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. You are a mutable sign and mutable signs are flexible, willing to change, experts at exploring all the options available.
So wherever you find yourself in a stuck or impossible situation and whenever fear or doubt kicks in, you know what to do. Shift things around, play around with different possibilities and most importantly, know where your priorities lie.
It’s also important to discern between reality and fantasy, to notice where your limitations are real and where you’re able to shift the boundaries. This will become evident to you during the Saturn-Neptune square which takes place on 18th of June.
This powerful clash of planetary energies first took place in November 2015 and there will be one more connection between these two planets in September 2016. This is the middle transit and it’s part of an important backdrop or theme to your life.
Saturn in Sagittarius is rarely an easy energy and it can coincide with ill-health, hardship, or represent a time when duty and responsibility dominate your life. In fact, it’s even more important now to hold on to your famous optimism and remember that fear and faith cannot co-exist easily.
Look honestly at your current situation and see whether it would serve you to give in to a struggle and let go in some way. If something hasn’t worked out, now might be the time to change direction and focus your attention elsewhere. Don’t give up completely however because if Saturn teaches you one thing, it’s that long-term efforts are rewarded. Whether you change your mindset or explore new options, change is on the cards.
It’s also important to recognise that this isn’t a time when you can get ahead easily. Action planet Mars remains retrograde or on go slow in the most hidden sector of your chart until June 29th. Then Mars picks up speed ready to return to your sign of Sagittarius early August 2016. Whatever you’re involved in now is sowing the seeds, preparing yourself for a period of action and endeavour later in the year.
This is also a pivotal month for your work and career and you might be wrapping up a project that began some time ago or bringing a position of responsibility to completion. Until June 12th, communication planet Mercury is in the earth sign Taurus ruling your work and your health and more importantly, Jupiter, your ruling planet and the planet of opportunity and growth, is in Virgo and your career sector.
On June 26th, Jupiter teams up in a stunning trine aspect with Pluto in Capricorn and your personal money sector. So the earth signs are loaded this month and in a positive way. Earth signs rule stability, productivity and they’re linked to money and business.
The end of June would be an excellent time to sell a business or profit from a venture that began in October 2015. The Jupiter- Pluto connection is powerful for you because it involves your ruling planet Jupiter and two days before on June 24th, Jupiter teams up with the North Node in Virgo, the point of destiny in astrology.
This feels karmic, so look out for synchronicity, a chance to turn your fortunes around for the better. You might be saying Yes to work or moving on. Whatever you do personally, trust your intuition and follow wherever life guides you.
It’s not the easiest months of the year but love can be a shining beacon and and either one person or other people in your life will show their love in a special way. Jupiter too is strong, your ruling planet, so follow wherever Jupiter leads you, even if it’s down a completely new path in your life.
