June 2019 Astrology Forecast:
There is a bit of a mixture of contradictory energies this month. Mars is in nurturing Cancer all month, and mental Mercury moves through emotional Cancer June 4-26. Mars and Mercury are not overly comfortable in emotional signs, so find a way to deal with emotional needs this month. At the same time relationship planet Venus moves through multi-tasking Gemini from June 4 to July 3. The easy way to talk about this is to ask you to get your head and heart working together. The other way to say it is that your emotions want an easy month and your intellect is too busy to slow down. On the esoteric level, Venus in Gemini has a lot to do with healing and bringing greater beauty into the world. Because this is also the month before July eclipses, expect emotions to be coming to the surface.

Thanks for your patience in longer lead times to provide your consultation.
Saturday is a relatively quiet day with nice lunar relationships all day. Moon in Taurus likes to accomplish something tangible and then get a reward for the effort. The moon enters the quiet void-of-course phase at 3:52 PM PDT, so it is best to be finished with outer world activities or important actions or purchases before then.
The week begins under a quick-paced Gemini moon. Avoid people and activities that try to bog you down now, as it is time to keep on the move. Venus makes harmony with Pluto on Sunday evening, so you can have those deep conversations about relationships and/or finances.
The Gemini New Moon is on Monday June 3 at 3:02 AM PDT (13 degrees Gemini). A sacred Sabian Symbol for this new moon is ” a famous pianist giving a concert performance.” Meditate on this symbol for personal meaning. Is it time for you to come out of hiding to show your unique talents? There are a lot of planets in adaptable signs now (Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces; with Virgo being the missing adaptable sign), so practice flexibility. At the risk of overloading you with terms, communications planet Mercury and action planet Mars are in a condition called “out of bounds.” That means you can go to extremes- too much talk and activities, changing into not wanting to talk to anyone or do anything. It is important to manage the balance between these two poles or you will find yourself bouncing around like a pinball.
On Tuesday afternoon, mental Mercury moves into emotional Cancer. Normally, this would just go on until June 26 when he moves into Leo. But Mercury turns retrograde in July and will move back into Cancer during the latter half of July and early August-an extra long time for this normally quick messenger planet. Communicate your emotional needs or listen to the feelings of others. Home and family issues come to the forefront in the weeks ahead.
The rest of the week flows smoothly. Friday morning has Mercury making harmony to freedom-loving Uranus, so you may want to take the day off, start late, have breakfast with a friend, or just let your eccentric side out. On Saturday, Venus moves into Gemini until July 3. This can be a fun and flirty energy, or leave you feeling scattered. Esoterically, Venus in Gemini is associated with healing through the Ascended Master Hilarion and Archangel Raphael. It is a good time to heal and bring greater beauty in your life in the weeks ahead. For Saturday itself, get out and play with friends.
There are some mildly challenging planetary combinations June 14-19, so don’t try to force things.
On Sunday, the moon is in Virgo and that means you want to get a lot of tasks accomplished. However, the Sun is making a challenging relationship to Neptune during the lunch hour (Pacific Time), and that can lead to not getting those tasks completed (as in, take a nap!). This continues into Monday morning when your big ideas and ambitions are influenced by a certain disconnect. Do not beat up on yourself if you are not moving as quickly as you think you should.
The rest of the week flows along smoothly, but you do want to slow down late Thursday and Friday, focusing your energy on what priorities rather than your entire “to do” list. The moon moves into Sagittarius on Saturday for a party, outdoor adventure, or philosophical pursuit.
The Summer Quarter Astromark Newsletter is now uploaded for your review.
Sunday is Father’s Day, and the afternoon is easier than the morning (unless of course you just want to sleep in and get a slow start to your Sunday). It is a generous day, but know the difference between reality and illusion.
The Full Moon is on Monday June 17 at 1:31 AM. ( 26 degrees of Sagittarius and Gemini). It is closely aligned with the Galactic Center. This center point of the Milky Way Galaxy was very important in the Mayan Calendar conversations in 2012. Although abstract, perhaps this is an opportunity to align yourself with higher purpose. It is time to take a risk on yourself to go to a higher level of self-expression, but you must open your belief system to allow the expansion that is waiting for you. Sagittarius transforms belief systems to help you open to a larger vision. There is a big challenge now in that quick Mercury and aggressive warrior Mars are opposing “let go and let God” Pluto and “slow but sure” Saturn. You do need to take action, but don’t force things or try to go too fast. (June 14-19 has a string of challenging planetary combinations, so adapt and adjust as needed).
Wednesday the 19th is a good day to keep a low profile. In other words, don’t force things and avoid angry or impatient people. Thursday and Friday are more friendly under and Aquarius moon.
Summer Solstice is a bit complicated this year. June 21 at 8:54 AM Pacific Time. Mental Mercury and assertive Mars continue to challenge Saturn and Pluto in a “hurry up and wait” pace. At the same time, nicer planets Venus, Jupiter and Neptune are in a complicated dance called a T-Square- think of the three-legged races when you were young. There are opportunities to open to new relationships and/or enhancing existing relationships. However, Neptune asks you to look for the spiritual side of people and to know the difference between fantasy and illusion. Because this energy is in the summer solstice chart, it will be with us until fall equinox.
Saturday calms down as the moon movies into Pisces, a good day to go to a watery place, meditate, or watch a good movie. Mercury is now moving into the shadow of its coming retrograde cycle, July 7-31. Pay attention to your communications, transportation and communications equipment, or other activities/schedules that will need adjustment next month. Something is going to change!
Be gentle with yourself on Sunday and daytime Monday. You are getting ready for an active mid-week as the moon moves into action sign Aries. On Wednesday evening, Mercury moves into Leo. It asks you to review where your heart is engaged in what you do, and what adjustments will be needed to spark your fun-loving and passionate side. Do something out of the ordinary on Thursday as eclectic Uranus aligns with the life-giving sun, and wants to do anything but humdrum activities. There are some mildly challenging planetary combinations July 14-19, so don’t try to force things.The moon moves into Gemini Saturday afternoon and Sunday, great for running errands and talking to a lot of people.
