Forecast for June 2015
Long-Term Shifts in 2015
The Uranus-Pluto square has come to a close this year (finally! Has it really been 4 years?) but stay alert—you may find it ended in March with a bang that reverberates for the rest of the year. Changes have come on both the personal and the political levels and if you haven’t experienced a big shift, yours may be due.
Jupiter begins the year in the Fiery sign of Leo, in a fantastic trine with Uranus. This eases the chaos and disruption by suggesting ways we can use our situation for growth and personal development. Later in the year, Jupiter moves into Virgo, where it proceeds to trine Pluto and oppose Chiron. This should smooth out the highs and lows of the Uranus-Pluto square, hopefully leaving us all quite a bit wiser and more whole.
Other than these things, I’m happy to say that 2015 is a more peaceful and less chaotic year than 2014.

Oh No, It’s Mercury Retrograde Again!
With Mercury still retrograde (i.e. moving backwards), this June begins with things in disarray. When Mercury is retrograde, it’s important to move slowly, lower your expectations and add an extra dose of patience to all your task-management. Also respond with warmth and openness to those who may need to clear a miscommunication with you. Remember, you’re not the only one who’s brain isn’t up to speed right now! Check out this for a bigger understanding of how Mercury Retrograde works and what you can do about it: This Year’s Mercury Retrogrades. Mercury turns direct (forwards) on June 11. Whew!
Spring comes to a close in the sign of Gemini (May 20-June 20). Wish your Gemini friends a happy birthday in flowery terms: words, language and communication are of utmost interest to a Gemini. For some Geminis this takes the form of highly intellectual pursuits; for others it simply means they talk your ear off because they think with their mouths. Mutable Gemini loves a change of pace—take a weekend trip while the sun is still in this sign.
Through the month of Gemini, the light will grow stronger until it peaks on the first day of summer, which marks the beginning of Cancer (June 20-July 22). At summer solstice the warmth penetrates our bodies, heating and relaxing us. From here until the winter solstice the days will grow shorter as Nature brings forth her fruits, reminding us of the abundance that is our birthright on this garden planet. Slow down and relax into this delicious season.
Each lunation (new or full moon) has a feeling-state that human beings will be prone to under it, a general mood.
Full Moon in 11º Sagittarius: Tuesday, June 2, 2015
June’s Full Moon features a conjunction with Mercury and Mars in Gemini and a square to Neptune in Pisces. The mad proliferation of life is what June’s all about (flowers, fruit, saplings), and the Sagittarian Full Moon brings a mood of abundance. It’s like a whirling, swirling hurricane of details and possibilities—how to choose which direction to go? What will stick? How can you tell from here? Use meditation or sheer force of will to get into the calm in the center of this storm.
New Moon in 25º Gemini: Tuesday, June 16, 2015
Mars pokes his nose in again during June’s New Moon, but at least by mid-June Mercury is direct. Now is the time to trim down all those ideas that grabbed you early this month, by doing what grabs you in the moment. Taking action on what you feel has the sensation of rightness under this New Moon, which was made for leaping forward into a good, strong start. What is the very next action you need to take to forward this month’s projects?
June’s Full Moon is sometimes called the Strawberry Moon. Pop one in your mouth or make a pie and you’ll be part of an ancient tradition!
