June 2012 Astrology

“In every block of marble I see a statue, see it as plainly as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls which imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to other eyes, as mine already see it.” Michelangelo

Venus continues her retrograde journey most of the month and in the first week transits across the face of the Sun forming an occultation (eclipse). This influence bodes very well for clarifying values and desires – particularly those related to love and abundance. It is a good time to empower relevant imaginings.

June is a very busy month with much activity in the excitable sign of Gemini.  Nourish the nervous system as overstimulation is likely.  Providing time to process and integrate the meaning of events will be time well spent as the pace of life can accelerate under these influences.

The Sun is now in Gemini until the Summer Solstice on the 20th when the Sun enters Cancer.

There is a Lunar eclipse June 4th on the Full Moon at 14 degrees of Sagittarius. Neptune the planet of dreams and visions will station retrograde on the day of the eclipse and Mars will be squaring Venus. It bodes well under this influence to heed inspirations or messages from dreams and intuitions but can make perception on the mundane level a tad blurry. There can be confusion surrounding relationship issues at this time.

On June 5 Venus in Gemini will occult (transit across the face of) the Sun. It bodes very well under this influence- (which is in effect for the first week of June – to empower positive desires related to bringing pleasure and abundance into our lives.  It is a time when you want to watch what you wish for because things can manifest more quickly under this influence.

From the 8th through the 16th Mercury the planet of communication will be squaring Uranus and Pluto. Under this influence communication can be testy, tempers can run high and behavior can be erratic. Best to take extra care when driving, moving around and communicating. Events and Information revealed at this time may foretell the larger significance of the Uranus/Pluto square which is exact at the end of the month.

The New Moon this month is on the 19th at 28 degrees of Gemini.

June 20th is the Summer Solstice.

June 24 the Uranus/Pluto square will be exact for the first time. There may be surprising events at this time which point the way to where transformation needs to occur – personally and globally. This effect has been widely in effect for some time and is known in Astrology as one of the 2012 aspects.

Saturn stations direct on June 25 lending a serious pragmatic tone to the end of the month.

June 29 the Sun in Cancer moves into the Pluto /Uranus square – Watch what information comes under this influence too. It is a good time to assess progress in personal transformation.
