Your month in a nutshell

Get out and about and have a good time in the first three weeks of the month. By June 21, you’re likely to want to retreat to your lair for a bit. Sexually, a little bit of imagination will go a long way this month (just saying). At work, the more inspired you are, the more cash you will attract.

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 in the sign of Moonchild 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)

It’s so hard when someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer. But if it happens to you in the coming weeks, try answering with a mysterious “Why do you want to know?” Mercury, the planet of the mind, is going through your secret 12th house. You may decide you want to stay schtum, even if you’re usually the type to be an open book. And guess what? Keeping your ideas to yourself could be the best thing you can do – so that when you do decide to talk eventually, your opinions will be fully formulated. The other possible effect of this transit of Mercury is that you are going to get the chance to see how your secret fears and unconscious beliefs are somehow sabotaging you. If you know you’ve been the source of your own undoing lately, have a think about what’s driving you. You might be amazed at how a little quite contemplating reveals to you parts of your personality which you usually keep hidden. And then you might be even more amazed at what you can do with this information, as you Get To Know Thyself. PS Going on some kind of retreat is an excellent idea now, the quieter the better. PPS If you have a secret you’re very keen to keep quiet, good luck! It might be possible for only a few more weeks, so be prepared!

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 eleventh house of wishes and friends. This Venus cycle sprinkles some magic love dust over you and your friends. OK that might sound a bit ridiculous but watch over the next few weeks. It should start to become pretty obvious which of your friends are worth keeping for life, as your relationships grow warmer and lovelier. Anyone who makes you feel less than great about yourself could be cut off your Christmas card list now. Even if life has been tough of late, being with people you love will be extra rewarding over the next four weeks. Expect to find it easier than usual to meet new people, if you know the time has come to expand your circle. If there’s something you’re keen to accomplish now and you need a friend’s help, just ask. If you’re sexy but single and looking for love, this is the ideal time to either go to as many parties as you’re invited to, or to throw a party or dinner part of your own and see what happens. Anywhere that you have to spend time with lots of people rather than one on one is best for you over the new few weeks.

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…

The Sun is now moving into your 11th house, the part of your chart known as your Wishing Zone. That means that you need to be extra careful of what you wish for over the coming four weeks. According to expert astrologer Jan Spiller, the wishes we make while the Sun is in our 11th house are a lot more likely to come true. All this is leading up to the next New Moon – keep an eye on these pages because when that happens, that’s the hottest wishing moment of the entire year. It’s also the time to look at the groups you belong to – are you happy with them? If not, it’s the perfect time to meet new people.

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 the New Moon is for you

The New Moon is taking place this month in your 11th House which is the part of your chart which relates to your friends and the things you’re wishing for. In a nutshell, having the New Moon here is very auspicious for two reasons. For one, it means you’re in a cycle over the coming four weeks when you can meet new people and sometimes, that’s the exact tonic we need. Be open to having new friends in your life. For another, though, it’s a hugely important time for manifesting.

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

There’s a whole lot of emotion going on in your chart now and therefore most probably your life! The Full Moon is taking place in your 5th House of Self-Expression. For some, it’s all about pouring your heart out – perhaps because you’re sad, perhaps just because you have a lot of emotions to download! For others, it’s about the joy that a child (your own or someone else’s) brings you. And for others, it’s about pouring emotion into a creative project you’re working on. And between all this, you need to find a balance between your Self and your friends. Don’t neglect them totally! This is your challenge for the coming month.

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?
