of the current planetary transits across the heavens from
Be sure to read for your sidereal sun and rising sign, which may be different
than the sign you’re accustomed to. Sidereal astrology is different from traditional tropical astrology, so your regular sun and rising signs may not apply in a sidereal reading or forecast.

June begins with creativity in the air, as Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune all link hands in the air signs as the month opens. Painting, writing, photography, and even music are graced with added ambiance and appeal in the days around June 1st.
If you’re an artist or creative type, plan some studio time on or near this date.
Venus steps into Cancer on the 9th of June, giving a three and a half week long window of opportunity for readers with Cancer sun or rising (especially rising) to freshen up appearances. Try out a new hairstyle or spruce up your wardrobe a bit, but give the days just after the new moon a little space. Wait until the 21st if possible.
Mercury moves into Gemini the next day, bringing news, messages and inquiries with him. The next three weeks will likely see an increase in communications of all kinds, as well as in commerce and travel.
The new moon in Taurus on the 13th brings a challenge from Uranus, triggering unpleasant surprises in the near term as well as unpredictable outcomes for initiations made at this new moon. Again, you can wait to make your initiations until the 21st and avoid Uranus’ unpredictable influence.
Sudden expenses, unpredictable partners, accidental spills on your expensive new shirt--on second thought, maybe don’t wear it near the new moon--all these things are possible and more. Watch within +/- 4 days of June 13th.
Sun enters Gemini on the 15th of June, marking the beginning of birthday month for those born under the sign of the twins. Travel and communication are highlighted, and commerce too, in the coming four weeks.
Mercury enters Cancer for three weeks beginning June 25th, and our conversations may take on a more sentimental tone during this time. Privacy and family connections take on added importance.
Neptune and Mars retrograde this month--for a grand total of 5 planets retrograde--most of which are the heavy hitting outer planets.
Expect a lot of secrets to come out between mid June and November, and expect that at least some of those secrets to be big ones.
Our lives are kind of slowing down right now, for instance many of us are entering slower summer months in N America.
Not much progress being made on many fronts and much coming back up for correction/adjustment etc. over the coming months.
Lots of what is begun during this time will change at some point in the future, so if you have major undertakings or initiations planned in the next few months be aware. Lots of transition, restructuring, changes as issues are made known, as information comes out, as resources are made available or run out--lots of adapting in the coming months in order to make progress going forward.
Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius, Scorpio, and Aries sun and rising signs are all affected more than others--with half the signs feeling slowdowns of some kind that means most people will feel a slowdown personally in some way, in July and August especially and into September and even beyond--November for Pisces sun and rising--for some folks.
Neptune will station retrograde June 18 that 6° 35’ Aquarius, followed by Mars on June 26th at 14° 13’ Capricorn. Look for planets or personal points at either of those degrees in your sidereal natal chart.
Full moon in Sagittarius is rather challenging given that Jupiter, the Great Benefic, rules from Libra, the sign of harmony and cooperation. Jupiter is catching a challenge from Mars in Capricorn at this full moon, however, and he could serve to amplify Mars’ more aggressive tendencies during a rather impulsive time.
Watch the days near month’s end for surprise news, travel difficulties, delays, or accidents to come up, as Mercury and Uranus tangle over the weekend.
