Caution flags are flying this month for two reasons. First, Mercury remains in the confusing Retrograde cycle until June 22. And remember this one is in Gemini, one of Mercury’s home signs. That means this one is likely to be more difficult than other Rx cycles and is more likely to give us problems with all the machines we use to travel and communicate with. Tow truck owners are likely to be busy while Mercury backs up on the bases.
A bigger problem this month is a big time square between dependable Saturn and irresponsible Uranus on June 14. Squares are powerful aspects in the Skywatch and this one is extremely stressful as these two planets rule Aquarius, the sign that Saturn is in right now. Saturn is the tester and Uranus rules unexpected events/changes. Cars and electrical devices are ruled by Uranus. All are more subject to malfunction in June, especially with Mercury Rx at the same time. How things go in your life this month depends on how you handle this extra load of stress. With perseverance and determination many people will grow stronger by overcoming difficulties and holding tight to their path and responsibilities. You will also see other folks overcome by unusual emotional tensions and strains who give up, rebel and engage in acts of violence. We all have a choice as to how we handle all the elements, good and bad, in the Skywatch. Best then to keep your schedule as clear as possible the first two weeks of June as the square begins to power up. Capricorn and Aquarius birth signs especially.
The Retrograde lineup continues to grow. Saturn and Pluto are both Rx as we begin the month. Jupiter joins the list turning Rx on June 20. Neptune will also Retrograde beginning on June 25. Rx planets bring a time to review your plans and thinking looking for ways to improve both. They also generally slow down the pace of events in our lives, especially Jupiter who rules the process of expansion.
More sign changes bring new energy to the heavens. Venus enters homey Cancer on June 2 setting up a stellar three-week period for family reunions, fixing up your home and cooking something marvelous. Venus enters playful Leo on June 26 turning on the party lights. She is joined by eager Mars who begins the month in Cancer and enters romantic and fiery Leo on June 11. Leo energy is creative and fires up the child inside all of us to come out and play. Fire signs Aries and Sagittarius will probably be leaders of the pack with this much Leo energy drifting through the heavens.
