Compared to May, June is less dramatic, but it doesn’t mean nothing is happening. There is a bit of redirection, using your file organizer, and the continuation and follow-through of the impulses that were planted in May. For most of June, Mars is in Aries, a space where it can direct its power. June provides the opportunity to clear the dish pile and move fast into new ground. The developments start quickly and progress far.
Mercury turns direct on the 3rd and enters Gemini on the 14th. The plans that went haywire in May, communications that were misdirected or misunderstood, and subtexts that were buried deep underground all get their space and time in June to be addressed. One would be wise to think hard about what May’s Mercury Retrograde brought to the surface. What’s not working so well? What can be left behind, and what must be detangled? These areas of life will be under deep reflection and redirection when Mars enters Gemini end of August and turns retrograde here at the end of October.
The first lunation of the month is the Sagittarius Full Moon on June 14th, the same day as Mercury’s entry into Gemini. The ruler of this full moon is Jupiter in Aries, and this moment may reveal some of the impulses that define the shift that we’ve moved in since mid-May. At the same time, the Sun in Gemini is trine Saturn and square Neptune. Potentially, this full moon could be a moment for combining the contradicting desires to set roots and to float and get lost. Because Neptune is in a tense relationship with the Sun and Moon, the full moon may be full of murkiness and stickiness, but if you do stick with it, there could be a secret hidden road where this confusion can be a helpful companion.
The other lunation is the Cancer New moon on June 29th. The sun and moon will square Jupiter in Aries. This square represents a reconciling of our passions, spontaneous desires, and ego with the part of us that may want to nest. It could be a mix of the desire to butt ahead versus paying attention to everyone’s (or even your own) feelings.
You’re spending a lot of time thinking about how you look to the world and yourself. How you express yourself. In general, your self-expression is a big emphasis this year, and how you see yourself initiating or responding to aggression is especially key.
The full moon opens a story on a relationship in the context or with the support of friendships in your life. The new moon on the other hand pulls a new seed in materiality and your belongings, bringing gifts of sweetness and safety, as long as you don’t overspend. All in all, this season circles around friendship and collectives, hopes and dreams, mood boards, and how you’re playing big and bold in that space.
What secret messages or secret enemies have been poking into the surface recently? Or maybe Mercury Retrograde has been twisting knots and leaving tracks in the space of your mental health. This month, you are finding your footing in this space.
You are also deeply considering what career growth and bravery mean for you. The new and full moons this month challenge you to see what it means to take on new challenges and grow your sense of authority in the world.
Did Mercury retrograde ruffle the space you move in collective spaces? In group chats and friendship circles? How are you seeing what you need and how you communicate in this realm? June allows you to let the water still and the dust settle. Take this space to right any wrongs and set the story straight.
Simultaneously, you are moving into new horizons through seeking growth in new learning and environments. Perhaps travel could even be in your plans this summer. The full moon wraps up a story in your creative and romantic life, and the new moon plants new seeds in the story of your mental health and space of surrender. These stories ultimately are linked to the way you seek bravery and exciting discomfort in the space of how you see the world and seek further education.
In May, you’ve been retracing steps in your work and relation to places of authority. In June, you get some space to take stock of all your growth and patch up what has been less than satisfactory.
Jupiter’s entrance into your 8th house of death, grief, and intimate entanglements, signals the possibility for healing as well as an overgrowth in intimacy. The full moon culminates an era in your life around the home space, whereas the new moon begins new friendships and collective associations. All of these moments link back to how you are exercising the brave self in vulnerability.
The tabs on your computer just keep collecting just as the books on your to-read list and travel destinations pile up. Whether it was messed up itineraries or lesson plans gone awry, June you get space to reset what has been going on and reflect on what you need before we head back into this territory last quarter of 2022.
Jupiter is now in your 7th house. This is a possible season of love. It’s not a promise of romantic love, but there is definitely a tussle and tumble with passion in partnership. The full moon culminates a cycle that has been growing in the space of your writings and communications, whereas the new moon ignites a new cycle in your career. These movements this month may highlight the important players in your life and how your interaction with them feeds you.
What secrets have you been trading and what oaths have you been swearing? Are there blood promises or rituals you run in secret? In June, you get space to clear or at least look directly in the eye, the debts and entanglements that ensnare you. The ways you handle the afterlife.
At the same time, you’re fighting for your life with bravery and tenacity. You’re checking all the boxes and sorting away all the goods. Be it labor or health or the daily ritual of building and tearing down the physical realm, this intensity comes with a flurry of activity. The full moon illuminates the ways your physical realm, be it money or possessions, is loosening while also taking form. The new moon plants new seeds in new horizons, new books to swim through, and new places to explore. All of these changes are grounded in the deep ways you are taking care of yourself. These forms of care show you what is possible when you are deeply invested and yet not threatened by the question of your survival.
What has been going on in your relationships? Have your conversations been twisted and turned inside out? Have things been clear one day and foggy the next? Whatever has been running you in circles in the last month gives you a break in June to clear the air.
The real matter of this time is that you are deep in the heart of your creative passion and it is building pleasure anew for you. This pleasure is raucous and rapacious. You’re here this summer to tear through bodices, corsets, metaphysical, literal, etc. The full moon reveals how you’ve been changing, both by losing yourself and by building yourself. The new moon plants new seeds in intimacy, entanglement, and the observance of life and death. All of these movements at this moment ask you to recognize how your passion and bravery for pleasure, romance, love, and the continuation of life are the necessary ground for your life.
Many things are brewing in the space of your health and your general survival skills and mechanisms. It may be concerning your body, daily rituals, workspace, labor arrangements, cleaning up, clearing space, or setting paperwork aright. The work you have ahead of you may not be so easily resolved or so carelessly tossed ahead. It’s not fun and could be a very mindless feeling, but in June, you have lots of ability to zoom ahead. Just make sure to keep the receipts and file things away where you can find them easily.
Similarly, this period brings a lot for making home feel right to you. This could look like home decoration, moving, or the entrance of something/someone new into your home that brings a lot of joy. It could mean moving around and connecting with the firecracker within. The full moon has you looking at some of the secrets percolating – which may very much be related to the story of home and heritage. The new moon brings a new cycle to the fore – one around partnership that is energized by the changes you have around home, as well. So all in all, this month as well as the rest of the summer is a great time to buy furniture, redecorate, as well as host home parties and visit your family.
May asked you to release so much about how you see yourself in the world and how you build your career and your legacy. Additionally, you also had to juggle many new balls in the court of your romantic and creative life. In June, you get more easy flow in this area of your life.
Jupiter’s entry into Aries on the other hand has you writing new passions and desires into reality. The way you move about in the space around you also gets some spice and flare, urging you to jump into new adventures. The full moon is a culminating moment in the world of your friendships and the groups you associate with, while the new moon whispers new beginnings in health and the care routines that are essential for your survival. These all seek for you to see how you build and nurture community, and how you see yourself as an essential part of any organizing body.
Home, family, housing: these themes have popped up as new problems that seek your attention. The dynamics of this may need you to be creative in your problem-solving or juggle lots of incoming information. In June, you find the ability to address these with the full set of information. The rest of the year, you’ll have more opportunities to find the best approach, so no rush.
Jupiter’s entry into Aries has brought in an influx in your income and/or spending. June’s full moon shines a harvest moment in your career, while the new moon plants new seeds in the space of creativity and a more personal form of pleasure. All of these movements highlight how the true joy at this moment comes from an unapologetic recognition of your worth and value.
What have you been writing? What lingers in the text messages that go unanswered? Your communications are filled with subtext and hidden messages. Or ideas that go uncaptured. June gives you some space to catch them and tie them down… or watch them float away in peace.
You are in the spotlight this summer. You have the power to bring the changes and to start the party, spontaneously, wherever you go. You find yourself leaning more easily in basking in abundance, richness, and satiety. The full moon reveals what you’ve been learning and expanding towards, whereas the new moon is planting a feeling of sweet rootedness. All these expansions and rooting-downs have to do with configuring the regaining of faith in yourself and your power. This time isn’t just for building up yourself, but for seeing yourself as the source of abundance and faith in the world as well.
Since the beginning of May, a variety of events has caused you to reconsider your self-worth and where you place your value. There may have even been some misplaced, lost, or broken items. In June, you get space to decompress from that pressure and confusion.
Additionally, this moment is deeply calling on you to pull into yourself, especially into your private space and the dreams that haunt you during the day. The full moon reveals something that has been percolating in the space of grief, loss, and entanglement, and the new moon seeks for you to rebuild communications and community. These movements ultimately want you to anchor into a fire within, that burns in denial of a world that denies your anger and passion.
