Happy Solstice! As energies slow down, it’s an excellent day to focus on securing your inner foundation.

Today is marked as the first day of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the South as the Sun positions itself in Cancer late tonight Jupiter also stations retrograde in Pisces at 3:05pm UTC until October 17, making FIVE planets retrograde. Jupiter will retrograde back into Aquarius July 28. Today, the waxing Libra Moon trines the Gemini Sun… and then we have a Scorpio Moon, which will trine Jupiter Rx and square Mars.

Opportunities for change and new adventures start to fade out and actions may significantly slow down or be delayed. There may be an inclination to pull back or pull within for “self-protection,” or fall back on securities of the past, such as family comforts or a dead routine. You might feel more apprehensive to express yourself due to self-doubt. Maybe you’d rather hide away or get lost in fantasies of the future.

Otherwise, life begins to lighten up. This is especially the case for people who were able to release the past, make life changes, and embrace the new. Although mental fog continues, intuition is clear and inspired. You can trust that to build your new foundation and continue to embrace new possibilities.

Stress, nervousness, anxiety, and mindless accidents may finally smooth out after Mercury exits its retrograde shadow early July.

Keep an eye on physical and emotional health if you don’t have a solid health routine.

For those unable to make the shift, we have more shakeups after Mercury stations direct June 22, the Sun is in Leo July 22, and through the end of the year with Saturn Uranus square. Securities of the past may not be so secure after all. What is true family to you? Look closer at habits and patterns to find out why you’re stuck. This is the year of change in the Cosmos, and it’s a good idea to change with it.


Alternating Emotions

June 21 – June 27, 2021

  • Monday, June 21: Venus trine Neptune, Waxing Gibbous Moon in Scorpio
  • Tuesday, June 22: Mercury stations Direct, Waxing Moon in Sagittarius
  • Wednesday, June 23: Sun trine Jupiter Rx
  • Thursday, June 24: Venus opposite Pluto, Saturn Rx sextile Chiron, Full Moon in Capricorn
  • Friday, June 25: Neptune stations retrograde
  • Saturday, June 26: Waning Moon in Aquarius
  • Sunday, June 27: Venus in Leo

Welcome to the emotional season of Cancer, five planets retrograde, and a Full Moon in Capricorn! As emotions alternate, you might change your mind about what you thought you wanted… and then change your mind again! This could rock the boat in relationships, but it’s an excellent week to accept ignored feelings and align accordingly.

Slower energy this week may feel unsettling unless you can stay steady with work and completing tasks. However, if you use busy work to avoid feelings, you run the risk of unwanted outcomes.

Emotional reactions and sensitivity may be heightened this week. You might experience an abrupt and complete change in your feelings. It’s okay to allow emotions to flow as they rock back and forth because it’s a sign of inner shifts occurring, especially if you still need to release the past.

When emotions are allowed to flow – rather than stay stuck – you have an opportunity to get in touch with your life passion. You need ALL of your emotions on board in order to keep going through challenges and ACHIEVE your life passion.

However, if there’s an emotional clog, it may be difficult to get out of bed. Or, your life dream may not be exactly what you think.

Clarity begins with information and communications when Mercury stations on Tuesday and even moreso when Neptune stations retrograde on Friday, just after the illuminating Full Moon on Thursday. You may get a reality check or disillusionment late this month if expectations were too high, or if you were lost in idealism.

But if your actions are grounded and you stay committed, your relationship or life passion can evolve.

You know you’re emotionally clear if you feel light, confident, and focused on RIGHT ACTION.


June 2021

Make The Shift

The month of June finds itself right smack in the middle of eclipse retrograde season with a powerful Saturn Uranus square mid month.

It’s an excellent month to make a final break from the past, or finally break free from a dead routine, traditional structure, or cheap desires and illusions that make you suffer.

The first half of the month may be challenging with plenty of stress, confusion, and/or conflict unless you can relax and CHANGE right along with life. Stay grounded and make a final release of the past and life will be much easier for you. The second half of the month will lighten up but opportunities to make an important life shift may also dissolve.

How do you know what life shift to make?

Look at the Aquarius and Taurus Houses in your birth chart, and especially houses with planets at early to mid degrees in Fixed signs. This year’s Saturn Uranus square is triggering these life areas which are trying to shift from an old structure to a new, INSPIRED structure. Or, if you find yourself flip-flopping between two extremes in a life area, break free from the bipolar cycle by establishing and committing to a new habit, pattern, routine… that you honestly ENJOY. This is how you can avoid the tough challenges this month and this year.

With Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces along with Mercury Rx making significant aspects, watch for using someone as a savior to avoid making a necessary life shift. That person will eventually get crucified when they don’t live up to expectations.

Only YOU can make the changes necessary to look, feel, and experience your best.

Generally, during the month of June, people will either be lost in the clouds, in conflict with others, or transcending to a new dimension of consciousness. May you have the courage to experience the latter.



Conscious Choices and Life Changes

After the year 2020 uprooted foundations and outdated material securities, 2021 is the year for exciting change, especially as it might concern your career or relocating to a new home. Multiple new beginnings and new cycles present opportunities for major structural change.

Final choices made by the end of the year establishes new life experiences for the long term – so choose wisely. You might not know exactly what’s ahead but that’s okay. Dare to follow your true heart and enjoy exciting new opportunities that come your way.
