Astrology for June 2018

Emotional energy is ripe for alteration during the month; several challenging configurations show changes in the way we relate to each other.  Mercurial (mental) imagery is strong showing a clarification and rectification of our way of gathering information. So, our mental life is stimulated and our emotional life is a little stunted.  We can get some new ideas about how to live together. Uranus Semi-squares Neptune on the 16th and will be well within orb all month.  This shows a change in the marketplace as Uranus is in Taurus (sign of money) and Neptune is in Pisces (sign of universality). We can expect innovation and changes affecting everyone in all aspects of communication and commerce. From June 26th to August 27th Mars is Retrograde.  This can be an extended time of violence and upheaval.   We grow in important ways if we learn to correct our most basic impulses.
The New Moon is on the 13th at 3:43 PM EDT on the 22nd degree of Gemini.  Mercury (planet of thinking) is in Mutual Reception with the Moon (emotional processing), Opposite Saturn (boundaries), and Sextile Uranus (infinite intelligence).   We can expect to find our plans inhibited, but as this is a time of renewal and setting intentions, we can opt to take a new path, or at least edit our thinking.  If we are not too stuck on a direction and a point of view, now is a great time to change course.  With Venus (love and beauty) on the 29th degree of Cancer making a Square to Uranus, we may be very surprised by other people’s response to our current situation.  This may be a time of ending or reforming a long standing relationship.  To make the most of this New Moon, we must check to make sure that any changes we make really seem right both mentally and emotionally.
The Full Moon arrives on the 28th at 12:52 AM EDT, on the 6th degree of Cancer/Capricorn. Full Moons are always a time of culmination, finishing up, and releasing.  With the Moon Conjunct Saturn in Capricorn, we may feel somewhat insecure and worried.  Release from the self-imposed prison of the emotional past is possible if we have the strength and fortitude to alter our key relationships.  Jupiter is at the base of a T-square with the Venus/Mars Opposition.  This occurs in fixed signs so movement is difficult; finding the emotional flexibility to deal with our relationship changes requires effort.  The payoff is that we can take a giant step forward in dealing with requirements that confront us.  We can choose to respond joyfully and learn something new.
The Sun enters Cancer for the Summer Solstice on the 21st at 6:07 AM EDT.   With the Sun Opposite Saturn we have reached an important limit to growth in one direction. However, the Sun is also Sextile Uranus which promises there will be options to continue our forward progress, if we are willing to change our tactics.  Venus Conjunct the North Node of the Moon in Leo Opposes Mars Conjunct the South Node.  The Moon is applying to the Square to Pluto; Mars and Pluto are challenging the two female deities (Venus, Moon).  Male/female issues will take a turn.  There has been (and will continue to be) a strong resurgence of feminine energy which is changing every aspect of life, work place, home, religious life, and our collective belief systems.  The Grand Water Trine between Neptune in Pisces, Jupiter in Scorpio, and Mercury in Cancer gives us a higher path to truth by moving beyond our normal reasoning abilities to employing our inspiration and creativity.
