What’s Happening this Month - June Monthly Visions
Embracing Global and Cosmic events to help Create your Reality,

1 June – Full Moon Sagittarius
This months kicks off with a full moon in Sagittarius, igniting any dormant desires for adventure and the exploration of new possibilities. If you feel like you’ve been stuck in a rut for too long you might feel like breaking free right now and unleashing your inner free spirit. This is a good time to find out the answer to the following: “If I could do anything I wanted I would ……..” While your dream may be just a dream for now, by giving it a voice and imagining it as a vision you give it life; to inspire you, guide you, or be manifested by you.
14 June – 10 July Mercury Retrograde Cancer
Mercury Mercury where art thou Mercury? Mercury doesn’t actually go anywhere least of all backwards during a retrograde, it just appears to fall behind as Earth momentarily overtakes it on the cosmic super highway. But in a prime example of the theory that perception creates reality every Mercury Retrograde triggers all kinds of communication reversals – and this isn’t a bad thing. Computers crash so that you can update them, drafts of documents are reviewed so you can improve them, relationships are revisited so that you can heal old wounds or create new healthier bonds. It’s a time of briefly going backward so that in the long-term you can go forward in a much better way, and that’s a good thing. Look to your natal chart to see where the first 11 degrees of Cancer are for you, and which house they sit in. This is the life area that will most likely be affected by this retrograde period. Go to http://www.astro.com/ for a free chart, then google the house (first house, second house etc) for more info on what that house represents.
15 June – New Moon Gemini
This will be interesting. Just as the planet of communication starts its retrograde cycle, we have a New Moon in the sign of communication . This is like a double whammy hint to get our communications with others clear. This month double check things before signing, re-read documents, and especially think before you speak. Don’t gossip about others, it will likely get back to the person you’re talking about. (This is a good piece of advice to live by anyway). You might need to repeat conversations because you were misunderstood or not heard the first time around. It’s a good time to reflect on how you are coming across when you interact with others be it with friends, colleagues or the public. Are people receiving one message while your intention is totally something different? If this is true, ask a trusted friend what they notice about you that you may not realize yourself.
24 June – 24 November Uranus Retrograde 18 degrees Pisces
Uranus is crazy and unpredictable at the best of times, let alone the moments when it turns to go retrograde or direct. If you have any planets at 18 degrees Pisces or Virgo or within a few degrees of this, hold on to your hats. Think Wizard of Oz when Dorothy’s house gets picked up by the tornado and she lands at the beginning of the yellow brick road, surrounded by munchkins. “We’re not in Kansas anymore Toto” says Dorothy. So too, you will be looking around at your life any moment now knowing exactly what she was talking about. Just like in the Wizard of Oz the whole point of Uranus turns and transits is to get you from one reality to another, so that you can follow the yellow brick road (your true path), until finally you realize that the power to go home (via clicking your red shoes) was something you always had within you. A million self-help books and workshops abound and really we can get almost all the info we need just from watching this decades old film classic. Go watch it again and you’ll see what I mean.
30 June – Full Moon Capricorn
“Blue Moon, You saw me standing alone; Without a dream in my heart, Without a love of my own. Blue Moon, You know just what I was there for, You heard me saying a prayer for, Someone I really could care for.” So sang Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Ella Fitzgerald among many, many others. This song has never faded since it was originally written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1934. (Interestingly, the Wizard of Oz was filmed in 1939. What’s with the 1930’s theme this month?!) Lots of folklore is around about where the term blue moon came from, but for now let’s stick with the idea that it represents those rare months that hold two full moons, as is the case this June. The lyrics above will have a different meaning for every person reading them this month, so just take them in, say a prayer, and see what happens.
