Planetary Illuminations: June forecast is posted

June astrology forecast

You can read the entire article here.  If you’d like to receive a monthy summary translated into language that is easy to understand, sign up for my newsletter in the sidebar.

Meanwhile, here is the introduction to the June forecast:

As June begins two planets are retrograde, meaning they appear to move backwards.  Three planets turn retrograde during the month of June, so by the end of the month five planets will be in retrograde.  For more about what that means you will want to review this discussion about the June retrogrades, but also be prepared for a great deal of looking back into the past and some difficulty in pushing our lives forward.

Mercury will turn retrograde on June 7th.  Mercury is in Cancer at the point where it retrogrades but will move into mutable Gemini, Mercury’s own sign, by the 17th and remain there until after it turns direct again on July 1.  In Gemini Mercury can easily adapt to changes of direction which will help to lubricate any changes required as we turn to the past to revisit old decisions that may need to be revised, or to remodel our house or reassess our future plans.

Most of the planetary interactions in June are smaller and faster moving, so we will be seeing less of the dramatic shifts and strange patterns of the past few months.  The only exception is the conclusion of the harmonious grand trine with the last exact trine aspect between Saturn and Chiron (read more about that supportive process here).

Sunday inspiration: Jupiter trine Saturn

10336740_10154218834010393_6500362005937514528_nThis week marks the final phase of the trine formation between Jupiter and Saturn that began in July 2013, peaked in December 2013, and is now waning and will soon disappear.

Throughout most of 2013 Jupiter (in Cancer) and Saturn (in Scorpio) were part of a Grand Trine in water planets that included Neptune in Pisces.  The trine formation looks like a big triangle and is considered one of the softer aspects which provide support and harmony, something which has been much needed in the midst of the stressful pressures of Uranus and Pluto, the planets of radical change and deep transformation.

Jupiter inspires us to expand and experience confidence – to reach beyond the limits of that which we think is possible.  Saturn sets those limits and encourages us to set goals for ourselves and strive for certain objectives which will help us to achieve success in mastering the material world.  When these two planets align in harmony there is literally nothing that we cannot do.

Over the next week as this alignment peaks in its power, work with your creative self to sharpen your image of how you would like your life to unfold.  Then use the faith and confidence of Jupiter and Saturn’s discipline and focus to take the steps required to lead you into this emboldened future.

In which Mars changes course and healing is possible

Mars has been traveling retrograde since March 1st, and on the 17th it will change direction again.  Planets don’t really orbit backwards, but astrologers observe the motion of the planets from our perspective on earth and watch as they periodically APPEAR to move backwards.  A retrograde planet works underground, causing us to look backwards and repair the past – retrogrades offer us a Mulligan – a do-over if you will.

Mars will turn direct on May 19th, and for the past week or two it has been at a virtual standstill.  We call this “stationary,” and when a plant appears stationary in the sky its influence is at a peak.  Mars energizes us and motivates us to follow our dreams and desires – when thwarted it turns that energy into anger and ultimately rage.  When Mars is stationary it can be difficult to motivate ourselves and we may feel that we are stuck.  Just be patient: in another week the wheels will begin rolling again and forward movement will become easier.

At the same time we have a Grand Trine of planets that smooths all of the rough edges and assists us as we find our ways out of the difficult waters of the past few months.  Jupiter (abundance and opportunity) is exactly trine Chiron, opening pathways to the healing process which ultimate liberates us from the bondage of our wounds (Chiron) and helps us to gain greater realization and wisdom.   Later in the month, Jupiter will trine Saturn, forging stability and linking an optimistic viewpoint (Jupiter) with the ability to work hard and create solid structures (Saturn) – a combination that is the key to successfully navigating life’s joys and challenges.

Unfortunately, supportive planetary events don’t do all […]

Grand Cross News Roundup

tornadoThe planets have calmed down now, with Mercury moving into grounded Taurus and the Taurus New Moon tomorrow.  But the past few weeks have been a doozy.

  • I counted five stabbings in US high schools: Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Houston, Utah, Fort Lauderdale.
  • Tornadoes whipped through central and southern US states with several different outbreaks over the weekend with more coming today.
  • Mars (rage, impulsive behavior) setting off Uranus (recklessness, surprise) and Pluto (death and destruction) created havoc and an increase in accidents:
    • In Saudi Arabia there were the highest number of recorded accidents in a single day.
    • A ferry in South Korea capsized and the crew escaped, leaving passengers to die.
    • Sixteen sherpas, climbing accidents, were killed in an avalanche on Mount Everest.
    • There was a higher than normal number of plane, motorcycle and automobile crashes.

But the worst is behind us now, and just like the way the air is cleaner after a storm, once the debris from the past few weeks has settled and can be cleared away we will be left with a fresh start.

Who will care for the poor in the Aquarian Age?

Aquarian AgeNo one can really tell when the Age of Aquarius begins.  This is a 2160 year cycle, and it doesn’t begin or end on a particular date.  But I believe that we are in the transition period between the Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius.

The spread of Christianity dominated the Age of Pisces, and while there have been some horrific consequences as a result (think the brutality of the Crusades, the annihilation of Native Americans and other indigenous groups, etc.) it has primarily been Christian and other religious groups that have cared for the poor.

One of the rulers of Pisces is Jupiter, and Jupiter rules religion, the construct of meaning that we create for ourselves and share with others.  During the Age of Pisces the ideology of shared ideas has prevailed, and for a person to be without religion was unthinkable.

As we move into the age of Aquarius, ruled by Saturn traditionally and Uranus as modern ruler, there is more of a focus on individual rights and liberties and perhaps less compassion that is one of the higher manifestations of the Piscean archetype.  While Aquarius is all about fairness and justice for everyone, there is less of a sense of empathy and more of a fervor for liberty which we can certainly observe in today’s political landscape.  Aquarius loves mankind in general but finds it more difficult to be emotionally connected, hence the image I chose for this article.

Two years ago I wrote an article entitled “Will religion survive the Aquarian Age?”

There is no doubt that the presence of religion in our lives is changing, especially in the United States which, with Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius rising and Jupiter conjunct the Sun in the […]
