Coming off the back of the late May Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) and heading for the Solar Eclipse (New Moon) in Gemini on the 10th, there will be a mood of heightened anticipation and perhaps trepidation. Eclipses point to challenges which individuals face in order to develop their lives. A challenge ducked can lead to a crisis down the road which could have been avoided (See under Eclipses for the effect on star signs.)
The June Eclipse is in a brighter Saros series so there will be some cheer around. Though the month starts on a grindingly slow Mars opposition Pluto which will require care and precautions. Being confrontational won’t work. Patience and perseverance will. The chatty Gemini Sun for three weeks will bring fun chats and encounters, a scattered schedule and plenty of variety.
Mars zipping into flamboyant Leo from the 11th for six weeks will add a further dynamic drive to activities with attention-seeking behaviour, plenty of entertainment and added noise.
Towards midmonth a dithering Neptune square to the Sun will slow proceedings and another of the year’s signature Saturn square Uranus aspects will add an erratic, unpredictable, stop-start mood. Saturn is restrictive and Uranus is rebellious so it’s an oil and water mix.
Into the final 10 days a home-loving though also creative and ambitious Cancer Sun will be morale-boosted by Jupiter so there should be luck around. Venus, having been in family-oriented Cancer all month will flit happily into sociable Leo on the 27th.
2: Venus into Cancer till be 27th – a time to enjoy the company of loved ones, snuggle down at home, consider redecorating. Can be emotionally moody and over-sensitive.

Sun square Neptune – vague, low energy, drifting, evasive.
14: Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus – tense, irritable, clashing agendas, erratic, inconsistent.
20: Jupiter retrograde in Pisces until mid October – a subtle shift. Need to find meaning and purpose at an inner level.
21: Sun into Cancer for four weeks – home and family matters will take priority, also creative and ambitious, emotionally moody.
Venus trine Neptune -kind, romantic, not practical.

In Pisces from May 13 to July 28 and again in early 2022 – kind, compassionate, generous, mystical, spiritual and creative.
Saturn: In Aquarius from December 17th 2020 till early 2023 – cool emotionally, curious, good for scientific advances.
Uranus: From March 2019 for seven years in Taurus – changing attitudes to handling of money, possessions and resources especially in agriculture and our attitude to nature.
Neptune: In Pisces from February 2012 for thirteen years – religious, spiritual, has resonances with Muslim history.
Pluto: In Capricorn for sixteen years from Nov 2008 till 2024 = complete deconstruction and reconstruction of global economic and commercial structures and systems, as well as major changes in way in which governments work. In past times of Pluto in Capricorn (approximately every 250 years) there was territorial domination on a grand scale by charismatic leaders and ultimately a time of culture, learning, justice and prosperity.
