MOONCHILD

Your month in a nutshell

There are three main themes for you this month. 1. You could feel like keeping a low profile for most of June and frankly, that sounds like a plan. You need downtime. 2. There could be tempers flaring around June 20. If you’re working on staying calm, practise then! 3. Your love life could make you swoon, despite everything else.

So what is up in the skies?

Mercury is on the move… When the planet of communications, Mercury, moves signs, it turns our minds to other things. In June we have Mercury into your sign Moonchild (aka Cancer) for most of the month.

So what does that mean for you?

(Remember to read your Rising Sign of you know it for an even more accurate reading. If you don’t know your Rising Sign but you wish you did, see www.moonmessages.com/freechart)

You’ve probably heard the one about the person who says “But enough about me. What do YOU think of me?” The passage of Mercury into your sign means you officially have The Gift Of The Gab now and over the next few weeks – make sure you don’t use it JUST to talk about yourself! You want to talk a lot and lot of what you want to talk about will be YOU. And there is nothing wrong with that – you have ideas and you need to express them and quite honestly, you shouldn’t let anyone stop you. This is actually a very positive cycle – there will be trips, news, comings and goings and plenty of very interesting people who are drawn to you now, be it for a quick chat or a long and in-depth discussion. If you’ve been hoping and praying to find the right words to express what you want , those words will come soon. It’s also an excellent time for writing – creative or otherwise.

June standout dates for Mercury for all the signs

The thing with Mercury is that it sets the tone for the way we are communicating. So if Mercury is clashing, we get a day when people are more prone to argue. And when it’s harmonising, you guessed it, we get a day when people are more likely to get along. Here’s a rundown of the Mercury dates for 2019. Please note that these events don’t turn on and off like a light switch. You will feel them a little in the lead up and also in the aftermath.

5 June 2019 – Mercury moves into Cancer. There’s a bit less chatter.
8 June 2019 – a great day to say something which surprises everyone. Ideas are flowing.
8 June 2019 – that said, there could also be some harsh words being bandied around. Don’t be the person who upsets someone else!
16 June 2019 – today there is a sense that the thing which needs to be said will finally be said.
16 June 2019 – a day to dream and to write down your dreams and daydreams. Meditate and contemplate.
17 June 2019 – don’t let a mean person get you down. A good day for mental discipline but some people are also in a plain bad mood.
19 June 2019 – things could get fiery in the communication stakes today. Watch out!
19 June 2019 – adding this to the mix makes June 19 a day to really avoid getting into power struggles or arguments which devolve into something toxic.
27 June 2019 – Mercury moves into Leo

What about the love and abundance plane Venus?

So that’s the planet of communications, Mercury. What about the planet of love and abundance Venus?

She is also in the move this month. On June 9, she moves into the sign of Gemini where she stays unto until July. Venus in Gemini is flirty and lots of fun, so the vibe should be quite good.

Here’s what it means for you.

Venus is now moving through your twelfth house of secrets and sleep. If you find yourself being required to make some sacrifices for someone you love at any point over the next few weeks, do it with pleasure, if you can. This Venus cycle is partly about putting someone else’s needs before your own. You might not get instant thanks for what you do, but the good karma will eventually find its way back to you. On the other hand, be very careful to avoid bad karma now. Especially be careful if you’re thinking about getting involved with someone who is not really available to you. Quell any desires to get involved in any love triangles. Let me put it bluntly: take care before you either have an affair or seduce someone who’s attached elsewhere. You have been warned! Similarly, be careful if you feel like you’re giving or getting mixed messages romantically now – sometimes during this cycle it’s impossible to be CLEAR. Confused by love? Far better to be patient. Being in this cycle means the next Venus cycle sees the love planet in your own sign. And if you think that sounds good, you’re right.

June standout dates for Venus for all the signs

They are also going to be lots of clicks and clashes with other planets as Venus moves through Gemini. Here’s a rundown of the standout dates.

2 June 2019 – it’s a day of deep and exciting love, profound connection and maybe a bit of obsession too.
13 June 2019 – if you have been hurt in love, this can be a day of healing. Also a good day to make up with a friend.
23 June 2019 – how much love is too much love? That is the question today as Venus connects with OTT Jupiter. Don’t smother someone and don’t spend too much either!
24 June 2019 – if you’re worried that your beloved is not to be trusted to 1. Ask yourself why you’re with them and 2. Take care today as deception is in the air!

Follow the Sun

Meanwhile the Sun spends June 1 to 22 in the sign of Gemini. Wherever the Sun goes in your chart is where the “focus” is for that four-week cycle. If you follow the Sun around your chart over the course of a year and work on the part of your life that the Sun is highlighting, you will work on every single part of your life. Check back here each month for info about where the Sun is for you…

The Sun for you in June…

As the Sun slips into your 12th house, you get to slip into the Twilight Zone. Well, sort of. The Sun goes through this part of your chart once a year. As it does so, you can expect to feel a little more like staying at home and contemplating either your navel, or your life, or both. And that is just fine. Take it easy on yourself today and over the next four weeks. It’s an excellent time to get some rest, explore the esoteric and listen to your dreams. Also see if there are events from your past which have created patterns which are now dictating how you react to events in the present… is it time to break with the past?

June brings the solstice. Click here for the times around the world.

Down Under, it’s the winter solstice and in the northern hemisphere it’s the summer solstice. For Aussies, then, this June solstice is the shortest day of the year in terms of daylight. In the north, it’s the longest.

A solstice occurs when the sun is at its furthest point from the equator (at the equinox, it’s at the closest distance from the equator.).
So what to do? Wherever you are at the time of the solstice, honour the light in your life – since the solstice is about the Sun.

A little ritual for the solstice… from my Moonology Diary (click here to pre-order the 2020 version!)

As you enjoy the solstice, take a moment to think about what is coming up in the months ahead.

Down Under, of course, it’s about being half-way through the depths of winter. In the northern hemisphere, it’s all about the height of summer.

One thing this June solstice has in common, wherever you may be in the world, is that a candle can work as a symbol of the celebration.

In the southern hemisphere, the same coloured candle symbolise the warmth of hearth and home as winter peaks, and also reminds us of the coming of the light at the end of the coldest months.

In the northern climes, an orange, red or yellow candle (which you can poke into an actual orange!) symbolises the Sun burning brightly for summer. It’s said to leave the candle burning all day long (though careful not to burn your house down!)

The June hotspots

Regardless of your star sign of Rising Sign, there are some days which are more intense than others and affect us all in a similar way though the specifics of how they manifest will vary.

Here are the hot June dates

14 June 2019 – today could be annoying and frustrating as we move towards a Mars/Saturn clash which is all about trying to get somewhere and spinning your wheels. Patience is the only sane answer.
16 June 2019 – today is a really big day because we get the latest Jupiter/Neptune clash. Note that this year, Jupiter and Neptune are actually clashing repeatedly. Every time that happens, it’s going to bring up a lot of confusion. Expect weirdness.
18 June 2019 – counter-balancing the weirdness above we get a lovely link between Saturn and Neptune. So whatever was so weird a few days ago can start to make more sense now.
20 June 2019 – another high energy day as Mars makes its once-every-two-years clash with Pluto. If you have a short fuse or your dealing with someone who has one, watch out today!

Where’s the Moon?

Where the New Moon is for you

You’re in a slightly strange cycle – can you feel it?! This month, the New Moon is taking place in your 12th House which is the part of your chart where you keep All Matters Hidden and Spiritual. On the one hand, this can be a time when you just want to withdraw from the world, full stop. On the other, if you are into growing and evolving as your walk the spiritual path, this can be a time when you take time out from the madness to meditate and contemplate, knowing that the Universe will deliver to you the messages you need to hear.

On the night of the New Moon… a little ritual for all the signs:

1. Make a list of what you want to manifest in your life

2. Cross off anything which you already suspect you are never going to manage to manifest

3. From your list, chose the number 1 thing you really want in your life

4. Write a list of the steps that you would realistically have to take to make this dream real

5. Write an affirmation about this dream – as though it’s already happened eg “I love my new job – I just LOVE it!” Commit to saying it out loud over and over every day for the month ahead. Put a reminder in your phone so that do don’t forget! Write it out, too, and as you write it, imagine you’re writing to a friend to tell them the good news about your new job. You can also write it as an email or text message which you never send. The secret is to feel the feeling of the wish fulfilled as you do this. See it as real as you do it, too. This is all crucial.

6. Make a list of inspired action you can take to make your dream come true. Because when you manifest, you have to balance the magic with the practical.

7. Pay attention to signs that your dream is manifesting. For example, say you want to work for a particular company, see if you start to see ads for them. That’s a sign your dream is manifesting

8. And most important of all, do it with a spirit of surrender. Be grateful for all the good in your life as you do these exercises, and once they’re done, say “For the good of all or not at all!” out loud with a lot of energy. Because the Universe knows what’s best.
If you do this, you will start to see how manifesting really does work.

The Full Moon is in Sagittarius

Where the Full Moon is for you

If you’re one of the lucky ones, this is the Full Moon when you see yourself for who you REALLY are and therefore see your good points as well as your flaws – and you decide to do something about your flaws. This is all about the daily life you lead. Are you living in a healthy fashion? Are you getting out and about to exercise? Have you long ago given up the bad habits like smoking and partying too much? If not, then this Full Moon is your annual chance to start again when it comes to taking care of yourself body, mind and spirit. Routines are your friend now. At work, go slow and steady.

Here are the top 5 questions to ask yourself under the Sagittarius Full Moon

1. Have I been too flippant, or carefree to the point of being careless, irresponsible, even?

2. Have I been letting myself down by allowing myself to get distracted and bored?

3. Have I been overconfident to the point of arrogance, or too preachy?

4. Have I been a commitment-phobe, to my own detriment?

5. Have I been seeing the bigger picture?
