JUNE 2017      

June is a month of adjusting. All the personal planets are direct to help you do the things you want to do. Jupiter turns direct on June 9 to help speed things along.  

June 1 – Moon in Virgo. Mercury rules both the Sun and Moon today so give him his due and use your mind. Communicate your thoughts by writing and speaking. Venus and Saturn support these efforts in expressing your verbal creativity. Look at your calendar and make a list of all that you plan to get done this month. You can make good decisions about how to spend and save your money.

June 2 – Moon in Virgo, VC from 5:28 pm until 8:04 pm when it enters Libra. It’s a good day to get a lot of work done. You have more energy to stick with the boring and detailed tasks than you will have tomorrow. You can stay organized and keep going. It will be therapeutic to write in your journal. Take your partner out on a date tonight.

June 3 – Moon in Libra. Have a great time planting flowers – from seeds, flats, and big flowering bushes. It’s a lucky day full of unexpected pleasures. Try the lottery or other games of chance. Pay attention to the thoughts that Jupiter bestows upon you and don’t dismiss them. If you want to move a relationship forward, today is the day to speak up. It’s a day to think big.

June 4 – Moon in Libra. Mars enters Cancer, a sign where he is weak in assertion but strong in nurturing. His energy helps you with domestic matters so tend to them now. Go out and see some art if you don’t want to make some. Buy a piece of art or a photo that resonates with you. Be generous with your time and money and contribute when asked.

June 5 – Moon in Scorpio.  Your view of life turns inward and you become self-absorbed. It will be hard to listen to others so try to work alone and focus on the thing you are passionate about. Try not to take everything you hear personally, though it’s a hard day to be objective. It’s one of the prime days of the month for planting.  

June 6 – Moon in Scorpio, VC 8:35 pm. It’s a day of transition with two planets changing signs, Venus enters Taurus and Mercury enters Gemini. These planets are now in their home turf and will function best. Venus helps you bring beauty into your life and also improve your financial situation. Mercury helps you gather the information you need. Do a lot of planting today as the next few days are under barren moons.

June 7 – Moon in Sagittarius. Your mind will be working overtime for the next few days. Take advantage of this to study, write out applications and proposals, make travel plans, and seek out new topics to learn about. Look for challenges to test your mental ability or play word games in competition with someone else. Stay active with sports or long hikes to burn up some of this energy.

June 8 – Moon in Sagittarius. You’ll be restless and have a hard time sticking to one thing, so keep your schedule loose and do the things that keep you moving. Vary your route to and from work. Take some time to explore a new neighborhood. It’s a day to break up your routine as much as you can. Do not plant. Skype with your friends who are in different countries.

June 9 – Moon in Sagittarius. This is a special full Moon as its ruler, Jupiter, ends his retrograde period today. You can move forward and there is no longer a hold on the growth and expansion of your life and your resources. Jupiter opens up blockages and gives you free expression to unleash your creativity.  Don’t let this enthusiasm cause you to act impulsively.

June 10 – Moon in Capricorn. It’s the day to plant root vegetables and is a prime time for grafting and pruning. You can make good changes to your landscaping and reorganize the garden. Hang out with older people and listen to what they have to teach you. Go to yard sales and flea markets to find antiques. Watch a classic black and white movie tonight.

June 11 – Moon in Capricorn. You won’t be able to resist the call to work instead of rest. You can put things in order and make a schedule for the month and fill in your calendar for the Summer. Set your goals for the next few months. Buy yourself a new clock. Try not to be too critical of the actions of those around you even though you know that they are doing things the wrong way.

June 12 – Moon in Capricorn, VC from 2:45 pm until 7:45 pm when it enters Aquarius. It’s a day to work hard and get things accomplished. You can take your ideas and put them into a usable form. Take the next step up your career ladder. Get some exercise during the VC period. Don’t plant.

June 13 – Moon in Aquarius. There’s a strong emphasis on the Air element and it’s connection to thoughts, ideas, and communication. Educate yourself on current event and be sure to read both sides of the story. Mercury plays with Jupiter and they give you a free flow of words to use. You want to write as much as you can today and leave the editing until later. Don’t plant.

June 14 – Moon in Aquarius. You’ll spend most of the day in your head. You will have the ability to see both the big and little picture of any situation. You can multi-task on verbal assignments. Take some time to envision your future and use the power of mind to help create it. Edgar Cayce taught us that “thought is the creator.” Hold off of planting, but not planning.

June 15 – Moon in Pisces. Now you can plant under this very fertile Moon. The Sun faces off with Saturn making this a serous day. Pay attention to what you say and say what you mean as people will remember these words and hold you accountable. You can’t skip any steps or do anything halfway today. Try to get some of tomorrow’s work done today.

June 16 – Moon in Pisces. Neptune begins his yearly retrograde period today. This brings confusion to the day and a feeling that your boundaries are dissolving. You’ll feel spaced out and easily distracted so don’t try to do anything of great importance. You’ll do best outdoors planting and tending to your yard and garden. It’s a powerful day for mediation and spiritual pursuits.

June 17 – Moon VC Pisces, enters Aries 1:55 pm. Do the planting in the morning and then let it be for the rest of the weekend. You need to be active in the afternoon and move without feeling limited. Avoid places where you see a sign that says “NO…”. You’ll feel fine being on your own as it’s a day for moving at your own pace.

June 18 – Moon in Aries. Cancel any plans that you’ve made that you don’t want to do. It’s a day to challenge yourself and go outside your comfort zone. You need excitement today and can have a lot of fun. It’s good energy for doing research and for editing your work. You can be curt and to the point when you talk and will have no patience for people who babble on. No planting today.

June 19 – Moon in Aries, VC from 3:42 pm until 5:53 pm when it enters Taurus. Use the VC period to do some contemplation and introspection on how you can change your attitudes to affect healing of physical problems. Discard old mental tapes, the thoughts that loop around and go nowhere. It’s a good day to finish your spring cleaning and get rid of clutter.

June 20 – Moon in Taurus. Today is the last day of Gemini and the last day of Spring. It’s a fertile day to plant. Browse the nurseries and see which plants inspire you to create a new landscaping design. You’ll move slowly today and will feel like you need to catch up on your rest and restore your energy. Forget the diet and mix in some gourmet food along with freshly picked vegetables.

June 21 – Moon VC Taurus, enters Gemini 6: 44 pm. The Sun enters Cancer at 00:24 am to begin Summer of 2017. Mercury follows along into Cancer and offers new ideas on how to nurture yourself and your family. It’s time to think from your imagination. It’s a day when the energy changes and since the Moon is VC all day so you can take a nap.

June 22 – Moon in Gemini. Start the new season with a good attitude and a lively spirit. It’s a day to stay out of the garden but a great time to mow the lawn and get rid of weeds. Get your errands done. Clean out your inbox and return phone calls both for business and friendship. Tonight is the dark of the moon. Stay outside until it gets dark and find a way to honor the season.

June 23 – Moon in Gemini, VC from 2:45 pm until 6:07 pm when it enters Cancer. Start your weekend early. You can multitask and get twice as much done as you usually do in a day. This new Moon in Cancer ushers in summer. The nature spirits are active and if you are still enough you can feel them. Meditate on the growth of a seed into a beautiful plant.

June 24 – Moon in Cancer. Today and tomorrow are a wonderful, fertile days to plant. Let the plants tell you where they want to be placed. Venus and Pluto show you ways to make some permanent changes in your life. Use your intuition to see where you need to evolve in terms of your love life and your finances. Invite family and friends for dinner.

June 25 – Moon in Cancer, VC from 2:44 pm until 6:06 pm when it enters Leo. Mars activates Jupiter and they tell you to put some time and effort towards an ongoing project. Think about it while you plant, and then record your thoughts by writing or speaking them. Take yourself to a body of water and enjoy the cleansing aura it provides.

June 26 – Moon in Leo. Let your artistic side run the day. Your creative juices are moving with good energy and it’s best to express yourself even if it means leaving some work for another day. Write down last night’s dreams and use the images to make a story or a picture. Do something special with the kids to celebrate the end of the school year. No planting.

June 27 – Moon in Leo, VC from 5:12 pm until 8:41 pm when it enters Virgo. Mercury spends the day chatting with Jupiter and Neptune and they say they’ll help you find the right words for your creative project. Leave the boring stuff for tomorrow. It’s more fun to write your memoir or even a long letter, or email, to a friend. No planting today. Be generous with smiles, hugs, and kisses.

June 28 – Moon in Virgo. Mercury is still busy and visits with Mars today. They take you back into your past and pull up cherished memories. Today and tomorrow are the days to catch up on your work and take care of the details and little odds and ends that need to be finished up. Sort through your paperwork and pay the bills. It’s not a good day to plant or transplant.

June 29 – Moon in Virgo, VC 4:34 pm. Mercury is having a busy week and today he meets with Pluto. They help you to uncover any secrets you need to know and to speak out about what you see and know. They urge you to be like the little boy in the fable The Emperor’s New Clothes. Avoid arguments as neither side will back down. Finish up the week’s work before you leave.

June 30 – Moon in Libra. Start the weekend with some social events. Have meals with co-workers and friends. Have a potluck dinner party tonight. You can put your cares and worries aside for a few days and just enjoy the company of friends. Do something special with your partner and shower him/her with flowers.
