Astrology for June 2017




In General: June begins with Venus in Aries Trine Saturn in Sagittarius, encouraging us to make firm decisions about career, relationships and life in general! On June 9th, Jupiter ends its retrograde journey, moving direct in Libra and thus helping us to increase harmony in our relationships and life in general. Mars enters Cancer on June 4th and, on 21st June, Sun and Mercury also enter Cancer, making this a month where emotions have a more important role than usual in our decision making. There is definitely a danger of being over sensitive and its up to us to breathe, take a step back and try to look at things from a more grounded perspective. The key is to respond not to react! With Mars in Cancer emotions around home and family are particularly intensified. There is a lovely Sagittarius Full Moon on he 9th encouraging us to embrace our more spiritual selves, transcending our everyday sense perceptions. It's a good time to see things from the big picture perspective! On the 21st Both Mercury and the Sun enter Cancer once again bringing our thoughts to home, nurturing, family and the hearth! A New Moon on the 23rd in Cancer can give us sudden insights in our personal healing journeys! If you are celebrating a birthday this month then it's a year ahead filled with family celebrations and perhaps a relationship commitment or home buying of your own. On the world scene issues around family life will dominate, also duty of care and community based matters. Locally it's a great time to give some extra attention to those you love!


Quote of the month: Having a place to go — is a home. Having someone to love — is a family. Having both — is a blessing. ~Donna Hedges

Aries

Early June is a positively proactive time to initiate new projects in love, work and life in general. Mid month can be quite unsettled and busy. Do something that relaxes you! Use the end of the month to take care of home and health and get organized generally!

Taurus

It's a month where you are feeling great, more confident and looking successful to boot! Do take a little time to think about your work/life balance, especially mid-month! Something may need to change.

Gemini

Early in the month there may be some miscommunications within relationships but this is more than made up for late month with some lovely energy promoting romance and warmth! Late month is also awesome for networking!


Cancer

Slow down and try not to rush things this month! Why not stop and smell the roses, take time to breathe, enjoy your life. The first week of June is excellent for learning of any kind but particularly for embracing the new and untried!

Leo

It’s been a hectic time for Leo and this month may just be the time to rest and rejuvenate. Creativity is high now too and new and innovative ideas come thick and fast. Once you hit the 30th of the month though its tie for action again!!

Virgo

Romance and travel are highlighted for Virgo and it's a wonderful opportunity to get closer to someone you love. On a practical note looking after general aches and pains is a priority now. Book in a massage.

Libra

The first few days of this month are high energy and you are a shining light for others as well! The month in general is about learning, writing, getting in touch with your inner purpose and beginning to understand hidden aspects of yourself.

Scorpio

What a wonderful month for career and life decisions! Success really is easy to come by now! Relationships can suddenly arise too or if already in a relationship new depths of feeling and new and exciting discoveries are likely!

Sagittarius

As the month starts you’re deep in one of your philosophic moods. The Sun’s message is to re-focus your efforts to heal past pains and to break down barriers to good communication! It’s through listening that we get to know what another is feeling.

Capricorn

You’re feeling nice and grounded as the month begins. You’re in a great place to observe the comings and goings of the people around you, and to get a good insight into what makes them tick. Your communication skills shine at work or in career this month!

Aquarius

Aquarius, your career really takes center stage for you now! You’ll have some very satisfying answers to life’s gnarly questions by mid-month. You appear to be in the middle of a potentially life-altering transformative time!

Pisces

You need to be vigilant when it comes to your health this month, you really need it in order to do your best work, and a lot is expected of you now. week one of this month will be an excellent time for getting a lot of work done!

Astral meditations:  Meditations you can do at work!!

Releasing stress at work can be an important part of doing your best work!!

Stress relief
1  Start by taking a few deep breaths then bring your awareness to whatever is causing you stress.
2  As you become aware of what’s bothering you say, “I’m willing to move forward and see this differently.”
3  Then take a few deep breaths, using the exhalation to just sigh a big sigh and release the tension.
4  Once you’ve done this, shake it out and move your body, visualizing your stress being shaken away. Do this for as long as you need.
5   
Finger Tap
1  Place your hands on your lap.
2  Starting with your pinky fingers, tap one finger of each hand at a time (synchronizing your left and right hands) and move through each finger to your thumbs.
3  As you tap, recite one word in a five-word mantra for every tap. My favorites include, “I always have enough time,” “I am one with time,” and “ I am capable and calm.” Or you can create your own!


Astral meanders: Astrology terms for beginners!

aspect: The angle planets make with each other, creating a certain type of relationship or connection.
Birth chart: A diagram that represents the position of planets the moment a person was born. The planet's positioning is said to hold important information about a person's life. This is also referred to as a "natal chart." 
Cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. These signs are associated with the start of a new season—spring, summer, fall and winter, respectively—and therefore signify new beginnings.
Configuration: A certain way planets are positioned that has a significant meaning. One example is the T-square configuration, which is when three planets form a right triangle shape in the sky. It indicates a struggle in life, but also creates a stronger drive to achieve. 
Houses: A birth chart is divided into 12 discrete sections, called houses. However, there are conflicting views on on how these divisions should be made. Each house represents a different experience or energy. The planets' locations in the houses on a birth chart reveals how certain experiences will affect a person's life to what extent.
Planetary return: When a planet in transit returns to the position it was at when a person was born.
Retrograde: When a planet appears to be moving backwards in the sky. If a planet is in retrograde on your birth chart, that means you'll feel the energy portrayed by that planet in a deeper, more internal way. 
Transit: The study of where planets will be in the future and what events or energies their eventual positions will cause. Since planets are always in motion, astrologers pay close attention as they change sign, house and aspect as they travel. 
Zodiac: A division of the ecliptic (the path of the sun) into twelve 30-degree segments we call "signs," each with its own set of characteristics, also known as sun sign.

Celebrating the old way....

May 1st Samhain Southern hemisphere

To follow the older traditional ways and work with nature we must recognize the seasons and our celebrations and practices must mirror this if they are to be alive and not merely dogmatic procedure.
Samhain is the beginning of the Celtic New Year. At this time all the harvest is gathered in, for come winter, the faeries will blast every growing plant with their breath, damaging any nuts and berries remaining on the hedgerows. In the old days peat and wood for winter fires were stacked high by the hearth. It was a joyous time of family reunion, when all members of the household worked together baking, salting meat, and making preserves for the winter feasts to come. The old year had passed, and the leaves fallen from the trees.
Today in our lives this is a good time to look at wrapping up the old and preparing for the new, to face old fears and surmount them, to understand our shadow and begin to live in harmony with ourselves. Think about the things you did in the last twelve months. Have you left anything unresolved? If so, now is the time to get those things in order. Once you’ve gotten all that incomplete matter resolved, then you can begin looking towards the next year. You can spend this ‘darker ‘time of the year meditating on your inner wisdoms and tilling the soil for new seeds to sow just before spring. Samhain is a good time to do a psychological housecleaning. On a slip of paper, write whatever you want to leave behind when the old year dies — fear, self-limiting attitudes, bad habits, and so on. Then burn the paper in a ritual fire. For many Pagan and Wiccan traditions, Samhain is a time to reconnect with our ancestors, and honor those who have died. This is the time when the veil between our world and the spirit realm is thin.
Samhain literally means “summer's end.” In Scotland and Ireland, Halloween is known as Oíche Shamhna, while in Wales it is Nos Calan Gaeaf. With the rise of Christianity, Samhain was changed to Hallowmas, or All Saints' Day, to commemorate the souls of the blessed dead who had been canonized that year, so the night before became popularly known as Halloween.
