The New Moon in Gemini on the 10th of June will bring this year’s first solar eclipse. The Sun, Moon and Earth will align and create the “Ring of Fire” annual eclipse. Five planets will be in mutable signs, and this will create destabilising energy. This shape-shifting vibration will bring change, and as this is in Gemini, it will be about communication, social media, media and our thinking.
There will also be five planets in retrograde: Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and Neptune. Mercury’s retrograde will have the most impact, as Mercury, together with Gemini, will affect all types of communication. Day to day activities such as travel, technology, social media, transportation and transactions will become challenged. You may find that completing tasks and communicating effectively will be more challenging in June. So think twice before you speak or send that email or text message!!
Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto retrogrades will have a lesser impact as they are slower moving, and this will provide plenty of time to ponder and re-assess our lives, mindsets, and thinking.
The Four of Cups in week 1 indicates the discontent that most of us in Melbourne are feeling as we work through Lock down #4!! You may be feeling bored, distracted, or disappointed with the way things have turned out. June is a time to look at things from a different perspective and ask ourselves – “What do I really want?”. If you lack motivation or have lost interest in something or someone, decide whether to let it go or put effort into rejuvenating your enthusiasm again.
Success, recognition and acclaim appear with the Six of Wands in week 2! Pat yourself on the back for what you have already achieved. Don’t be afraid to step into the limelight and feel proud as others recognise your hard work and dedication. Your star is rising, and others will acknowledge your efforts. Appreciate how far you have come and the success that you have achieved. Feel confident and worthy; you deserve it! Victory is here, and you will come out on top.
If you have been through tough times or hit rock bottom recently, you will now get on top of things now and start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Seeking out like-minded people and finding your tribe is also on the agenda.
Week 3 brings the second phase of reassessment when the Seven of Pentacles sees you evaluating your current status and taking stock. You need to know where you stand so that you can determine where it is you want to go next. You may be thinking of making a change, considering a new direction or questioning your choices. Is the situation – whether it is a relationship, career or lifestyle, worth investing more time and energy, or is it time to move on to something different? Where do I put my focus and energy as I move forward?
There will be feeling strength, optimism and empowerment towards the end of June. The King of Wands fills you with courage, passion, energy and motivation to gets things done. You will feel inspired and confident, eager for a fresh new start, and setting new goals and dreams. It is time for passion and new adventures. This King encourages you to be brave, bold and courageous. Don’t be afraid to explore new ventures and adopt a different mindset.
“Slow and Steady” encourages us to take life at a slower pace and savour the moments. Enjoy relaxing in front of an open fire, reading a book or watching a movie. Laze on the beach, go for a walk or just enjoy the sun. Just be. Remember that you are a human being, not a human doing!
“Chop Wood” encourages you to stop obsessing about your goals. Take time to retreat and tend to simple, mundane chores. You have put your intention out to Spirit, so let go and allow Universe to do its thing.
The “Rabbit” reminds us of the cycles in nature and life – birth, death, rebirth and the seasons. The Rabbit’s energy is gentle and feminine in nature, and naturally associated with the Moon. It also suggests power, abundance and good luck!!
