We ended the month of May in a place of Duality as the New Moon transpired in the sign of Gemini (May 25). Many people were feeling like they were stuck between two places. Now, the energy has moved away, but I believe it is due to the fact that most of us are simply accepting that sometimes you need to just sit on the fence with one leg on either side. I call this feeling one of being in suspension, like you are hovering between two realities or states of being waiting for the universal clues as to the direction it is asking you to move in.
As we move into June, the energy is changing. The duality may still exist as the Sun continues its Journey through the sign of Gemini (until June 21). Where the options are the choice to love (unite) or the choice to fear (separate). Do you find yourself bouncing back and forth between love and fear? It may be very evident in your life, a situation in which there are both feelings being triggered. Personally, I am focusing on the love dynamic as it feels so much better. How does one choose their focus? it is simply a matter of WILL. Every time the fear rises into your being, simply state to yourself that you are safe and are choosing the path of love. Use your will and power of thought to change your focus consciously. I am not saying ignore the undesirable feelings, but simply try flip them into what you love or desire. This is a muscle that one must keep working on with in their mind, and eventually that muscle has strength and the power to shift your response to what is transpiring.
On June 9th we experience the Full Moon in Sagittarius (at 9:09 AM EST). This particular Full Moon is asking everyone to look at their need for survival. Saturn is conjunct the Moon, opposite the Sun and one may feel the restrictions of Saturn in Sagittarius, but one interesting thing to note, is on that day, Jupiter (Sagittarius Ruling planet) will station Direct (at 10:02 AM EST).
I find it rather significant that this is happening on the same day. Jupiter stationed retrograde on February 6th and as it did, it brought with it a symbol of “spiritual rebirth”. A part of the self was required to be transformed on some level and during its retrograde phase and people were transforming at unprecedented levels. While Jupiter transits the sign of Libra, the focus is on balance, harmony, and relationships. Can you see how your relationships have shifted since then? Can you identify with how you have evolved in your relationship sector of life? Jupiter is the planet of luck, abundance, and grandiose experiences. Hopefully, as he stations direct one can feel the abundance of the Universe working with them. One can see in their life how the growth that Jupiter brings has assisted them with their own internal and spiritual growth process. Of course, after a period of growth comes rest. The need to relax becomes heightened as this planet moves forward. Remember this was a period of internal growth (not necessarily external growth, which is what most people desire to see in their life.)
Then there is a pause, not a lot of astrological energy is taking place (outside of the inner planets, Mercury, Venus and Mars doing their day to day stuff).
The Sun will shift into the Sign of Cancer on June 21st, shifting our focus to our foundations in life. The need for emotional security kicks into gear as the Summer begins! The New Moon in Cancer takes place on June 23rd (at 10:30 PM EST). This is always somewhat of a powerful New Moon as it is in its ruling sign of Cancer. One may feel tested at this time, but it is my suggestion not to force anything into being, rather allow the creative process to unfold naturally. This is the time to tap into the Creative Mind and allow yourself to explore the reigns of uncharted consciousness as you embrace new responsibilities that appear upon the path you are on!
