AQUARIUS

LET’S TALK ABOUT YOU!

You have Mars, the planet of action and forward-motion, in your sign which sounds like a good thing. The issue is that Mars is stalling and about to go retrograde in your sign too. In other words, don’t be surprised in June feels a bit like two steps forward and one step back. The best thing you can do for yourself this month is to do whatever it takes to balance your daily life/routines.

Power date: June 26 – surrender to what is!

What goes up, must come down…

So how are you feeling? If you were strongly hit by the new ELECTRIC Uranian energy which started to pour into the planet last month then by now you could be feeling rather …. Blah!

The thing is that the new Uranus energy is WILD! However we all know that when our lives go WILD it can also be rather (excuse caps) EXHAUSTING.

It’s only been a month since Uranus, changed signs, moving from Aries into Taurus. Even if you are not Aries or Taurus (and don’t have either of these signs rising) it’s likely you are feeling a bit wired, a bit different and possible a tad discombobulated (see below).

Just to explain; this is because of the new jangly Taurus/Uranian energy which sets everyone just a bit on edge as we acclimatise to it. Even on the world stage, there are likely to be curveballs and more uproars than usual as people act out (on again off again USA/Korean summits, anyone?)

If you are a meditator, or you do yoga or you chant, it will be a good idea to up your practise this month. That will help you to ride the waves. Remember, Uranus is also the planet of madness, so when it’s triggered, we are too!

Who is most affected?

Actually we all have Uranus somewhere in our charts. See below for the quick rundown. But overall the people most affected by the move of Uranus last month fro0m Aries to Taurus are:

1. Aries and Aries Rising people (find out your rising sign here) – because you have now been divested of the energy. Life should feel a little less manic, Unless you have lots of planets in the Aries neighbour sign of Taurus, that is! (Find that here too).
2. Taurus and Taurus Rising people (find out your rising sign here) because Uranus, the planet of chaos and madness, is now directly affecting you. If you know you have planets in early degrees of Taurus, you’re also under Uranian bombardment.
3. Libra and Libra Rising people (find out your rising sign here) because you HAD the madness of Uranus affecting your relationship life for the past seven years. That’s over now so life should settle down.
4. Scorpio and Scorpio Rising people (find out your rising sign here) because you now have the planet of radical change Uranus in your Relationship Zone so expect to attract more and more weird people into your life and to have unusual relationships all around. Yep!

And everyone else?

Aries and Aries rising – see above.
Taurus and Taurus rising – see above.
Gemini and Gemini Rising people (find out your rising sign here) expect upheaval when it comes to your spiritual life. Surrender to the Divine!
Moonchildren and people with Moonchild Rising (yes, the sign formerly known as Cancer) (find out your rising sign here) – there will be changes in your friendship groups and where your goals are concerned.
Leo and Leo rising people (find out your rising sign here) – you will want to be your own boss more and more – professional changes are forecast.
Virgo and Virgo rising people (find out your rising sign here) – unexpected journeys, less and less orthodox religious views and success with online publishing are all forecast for you now.
Libra and Libra rising – see above.
Scorpio and Scorpio rising – see above.
Sagittarius and Sagittarius rising (find out your rising sign here) – expect relationship upheavals. If you’re single, the next person you really connect with could (should?) be really different to anyone you’ve been with before.
Capricorn or Capricorn rising (find out your rising sign here) – ups and downs with your kids, if you have them. Those little ones can really surprise you. Excitement romantically and/or when it comes to you expressing yourself creatively.
Aquarius or Aquarius rising (find out your rising sign here) – changes at home and to do with your family which you didn’t see coming. Restlessness.
Pisces or Pisces rising (find out your rising sign here) – quick short trips here and there, wild new ideas which have legs, amazing conversations. Meditation is recommended during this mentally mad cycle.

TOP 5 POWER DATES OF THE MONTH for all the signs

The energies on these dates will be extra intense for everyone

1. June 6 – good for love, money and communication
2. June 14 – New Moon in Gemini
3. June 16 – a good day to make a deal
4. June 27 – the urge to more forwards subsides … take a break
5. June 28 – Full Moon in Capricorn

So let’s go through the main June astro-headlines…

The very good Venus (love and abundance) juju…

Venus represents the Goddess of love Aphrodite and also all things luxurious and expensive. She starts this month in the sign of Moonchild (the sign formerly known as Cancer.) Venus here is gentle, receptive and feminine. She is soft and sweet. She loves to cook and nurture. It’s a great month to gather your family around you.

Here’s where Venus is for you as we move into June…

Note that the part of your life that you read about here is the part of your chat where the Venus energy is for you for the first half of June when all the good stuff is going on.

Venus is now moving through your sixth house of daily work and health routines. This is perhaps the least sexy of all the Venus transits BUT before you start feeling ripped off, be glad! Someone Else can take a back seat for a while as you use the coming four weeks to work on yourself body, mind and spirit. Venus loves to be pampered so she if you can book yourself in for a massage or day spa, if you like that kind of thing. If you’d rather Do It Yourself, book yourself in a night alone where you can give yourself a candlelit bubble bath, manicure and pedicure (and NO this doesn’t apply to women only!) Venus here is also good news for you at work – you should find yourself feeling more amiable around the office, and you can pretty much expect your colleagues and clients to notice and approve, too. (And good things happen when those around us like us more than usual!) Romance-wise, this is the time to address the practical matters, rather than aiming for a love and hearts and flowers situation.

Moreover, worth mentioning is the fact that in the first half of June, all the connections Venus makes with other planets are positive and heart-warming so there are so good days for love and money ahead! And then in the second half, there are more challenges. Here is the rundown.

1. June 1 – Venus and Jupiter connect in a really healthy way. It makes the night before and this day great for any matters to do with love or abundance. PLUS Venus is also connecting with dreamy Neptune. Dreams can come true, especially dreams related to love and riches, and double-especially for anyone born in the middle of the Cancer/Moonchild period.
2. June 5 – Venus connects with powerful Pluto. Obsessions in love abound. Is it love or are you just overly infatuated? Either way, expect intensity. Could bring very powerful money negotiations. Look for a win/win outcome.
3. June 14 – note that Venus clashes with Uranus today so the mood could change and/or there could be turnarounds to do with love and money but not necessarily the ones you were expecting.
4. June 21 – Venus and Mars get together – good for canoodling, good for arguing!
5. June 25 – how much love is too much love? How much money is too much money? Those are the questions du jour!

The spotlight shifts in the second half of the month

The spotlight shifting in the second half of the month when the Sun moves into Moonchild (The sign formerly known as Cancer.) From June 1 to 21, the Sun is in the sign of Gemini.

Here’s where that puts the focus for you:

It’s all very well coasting along and hoping that life will fall into place, but as the Sun moves into your 6th house, it’s time to think about the structure of your days. What responsibilities do you have which you just can’t be lax about and is your life organised in such a way so that you can get all that you need to get done, done. Think about your routines – are they helping or hindering you. This is also the start of a four week period when you would do well to look at your health – not because you are going to get sick but because it’s the ideal moment to make sure you’re looking after yourself. Finally, it’s a month-long cycle where you need to think less about how to serve your own needs and more about how to help others.

However after that, the focus will shift. Here’s a quick rundown for all the signs; More about this next month… remember to read your rising sign if you know it!

Aries – it’s all about home and family
Taurus – focus on how well you’re communicating
Gemini – it’s all about cash, property and possessions
Moonchild – it’s all about YOU!
Leo – your fears are highlighted so you can work on them
Virgo – it’s all about your friendships and networks
Libra – it’s all about your brilliant career!
Scorpio – the focus is on travel, adventure, higher learning, the internet, publishing…
Sagittarius – it’s all about sex and money
Capricorn – it’s about your love life
Aquarius – it’s about how you spend your daily life 9-5 and at home
Pisces – the focus is on children (your own or someone else’s), creativity and kids

And then Mars stalls…

The action planet Mars will stall in the sign of Aquarius (remember we all have Aquarius in our chart somewhere!) This is ahead of a retrograde cycle. Mars only retrogrades about once every two year. Mars is the masculine planet of desire and moving forwards. Mars is about Getting Things Done. So when he stalls, it’s a time to breathe. Don’t try and move forwards too fast, you will just be frustrated! So here is where Mars is reversing for you.
Mars going backwards in your sign is mega news for you. Not only doesn’t this happen every day, it doesn’t happen even every decade. Mars is the planet of action, drive and determination and there are two schools of thought re what his reverse cycle through your sign will mean to you. On the one hand, we know that’s it’s Mars that fires us up and sends us soaring like a rocket towards success. Just say you’ve been feeling a little lazy, Mars is the impetus you need to Get Back Into It – at work and at home. Now, when Mars reverses, there’s an argument to say that his powers are diminished – though some very well respected astrologers I know claim that no such thing is true. They would tell you that you simply have More Mars in your chart for longer – in other words, since Mars goes backwards, he effectively lengthens his stay in your sign, therefore you have access for longer to his powers of drive, determination and self-assertion.

Where’s the Moon?

This month brings the New Moon in Gemini and the Full Moon in Capricorn.

New Moon in Gemini…

How well are you expressing yourself? That is the question to ask yourself this month as the New Moon takes place in the very communicative sign of Gemini. Gemini is the sign of talking, thinking, writing, or orators and communicators in all their forms. The Gemini New Moon happens once a year around this time and is the ideal moment of the year to make sure you’re letting others know how you feel. Got a tricky conversation you want to have with someone? Tell them or write it down for them. Let them know what you want, too. If you don’t ask people for what you want, you are way less likely to get it, have you noticed? Over and again, communicating is the key to solving problems, be they personal or professional. So on June 14, make a list of the people you need to speak to and what you need to speak to them about.

Here’s where the New Moon is taking place for you and what it means:

Welcome to the House of Fun! Have you been having a bit of that lately? If not, then the skies are strongly suggesting to you that it’s time to get out and do a little bit of what you fancy! There’s a new start possible for you now re romance, creativity and kids. Could any of those parts of your life do with a sort of restart? Identify which one(s) you want to work on and draw up an action plan. What could you do to inch closer to what you want? Remember, the law of attraction means we can’t get what we want until we know what we want.

Plus the Full Moon is in Capricorn …

This is the time to think about your working life, where you are going with it and if there is something in your career that you need to leave behind. The Full Moon in Capricorn is associated with the planet Saturn anyway, and in the case of the 2018 Full Moon in Capricorn, it’s actually taking place at the same place on the zodiac. So endings are going to loom large now, especially but not only when it comes to work projects. If something you’re working on is coming to an end now, it’s almost certainly the right time for it. Most of us fear change but Saturn and Capricorn are the planet and sign that deal with fear. So work through any doubts you have about change being a good thing. We have to keep moving forwards, or we stagnate. Agreed? It’s quite obvious but the Full Moon in Capricorn is the ideal time to consider such questions.

And here’s what it means for YOU:

The emphasis has been on the Everyday – the routines in your life, your daily work and health schedules, what you do for others. The click click click of life. The Full Moon suggests though that it’s time for you to think less about that and more about the hidden parts of life. Spare a moment for the esoteric. Spend some time alone in quiet contemplation rather than throwing yourself onto an endless treadmill of life where you don’t get a chance to think about anything much. There is a lot which has been swirling beneath the surface – and it’s time to allow it up for air.

And now for something different…

This month I would like to finish with something a bit different. I drew a card for all of the four astrological elements. Think of it as this month’s advice for you from the heavens. If you think of a question before you read the information for your sign, the answer will be even more accurate!

Fire (If you’re Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): Whatever you are currently working on, the KNIGHT OF COINS says “keep at it!” This applies to a relationship but also to a financial venture/job.

Earth (If you’re Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn). Your card is the HIGH PRIESTESS so whatever you’re aiming for, push less, and trust your intuition more. Attract rather than chase.

Air (If you’re Gemini, Libra, Aquarius). The MOON card suggests that there is more to the story you’re enquiring about than meets the eye. Wait for more information before acting.

Water (If you’re Moonchild, Scorpio, Pisces). Whatever it is that you’re working towards, the EIGHT OF COINS suggests you can succeed as long – as you keep making a serious effort.

The last word…

You need to watch your temper and keep a lid on it, as Mars reverses through your sign this month. We are talking “least said, soonest mended” so take a breath if and when you feel your displeasure rising and the temptation to let rip at someone starts to feel a bit overwhelming. This is about you learning to manage anger.
