All aboard for the summer signs: This month Gemini segues us into Summer as  Cancer and next month Leo bring warmth and lazy days to the Northern Hemisphere. June begins with a Gemini Sun paired with a Taurus Mercury and Gemini Venus. Communications and business connections are featured. Mars still Retrograde in Scorpio, goes direct on the 29th of June. Action rather than reaction then prevails. Mercury speeds along all month, joining the Sun in Gemini on the 12th, and in Cancer on the 29th. Venus enters Cancer the 17th, preceding the Summer Solstice Cancer Sun at the 20th midpoint of the Solar year.

Jupiter continues the month in Virgo, enhancing the fortunes and smoothing the paths of those with Virgo Sun and Virgo Rising as well as Taurus and Capricorn Sun and Ascendant. Saturn continues to be retrograde in Sagittarius. Those with that sign or with it rising can employ that energy to resolve stumbling blocks, and turn them into stepping stones. This will be true for most of the Summer until Saturn goes Direct in mid August. Uranus continues in Aries, Neptune in Pisces turns retrograde mid month, and Pluto is retrograde in Capricorn until late September, with lots of political skullduggery yet to emerge.

The New Moon on the 4th in Gemini suggests we focus for the following two weeks on building and enhancing communication. Get to know your neighbors, connect to siblings, pick out new fiction to read or explore a new neighborhood, whether mental or physical. The Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 20th makes for an even more powerful Solstice energy. Plan to do something adventurous or philanthropic over the three days, the 19th, 20th, and 21st of this Full Moon period. Something significant for the USA may blossom at that time, though it could create confusion at first, or else some earlier chicanery could come to light.

June 1st, a Sun/Neptune square might indicate a confusing day. The 2nd and 3rd with a Venus/Neptune square and a Sun Saturn opposition could extend that. Look carefully into any proposals or bargains, and examine whatever responsibilities you are asked to take on. A Venus/Saturn opposition on the 3rd continues this cautionary note. The New Moon on the 4th with a Sun/Jupiter square and a Venus /Jupiter square temps us to "let it all hang out" and overindulge, so be mindful of consequences and go slow if you can. The 6th brings a lovely Sun/Venus conjunction and everyone feels good now. The  9th Mercury/Mars opposition could indicate a climate for quarrels--think peace.

Sun/Uranus sextile the 13 and 14 suggests inventive innovations and resolutions. The  Saturn/Neptune 17th square indicates deception or confusion. The 20th Full Moon is bracketed by Mercury/Saturn opposition, and a Mercury /Neptune square punctuated by the Solstice. This powerful day may well indicate some newsworthy event, of either a revealing or concealing nature, affecting this country in some way. A Mercury/Jupiter square on the 22nd suggests examining communications carefully for exaggeration or hyperbole, the 26th Jupiter/Pluto trine could bring a benefit or energize one. Mars stationary energy on the 29th can be useful to start or promote a project. Use the 30th Venus/Pluto opposition to make a helpful choice regarding change.
