JUNE offers an opportunity to look within and determine where you are in life and where and how you want to move forward. There is a somber feeling globally. The search for truth, digging deep to understand, pulling back for emotional protection, focusing on studying, are a few of the ways the energy may be felt in June. It is a great study or exam month – so good luck! A sense of sadness and disappointment (or even betrayal) may be felt by leaders around the world.

Planetary Changes

VENUS enters TAURUS on the 6th: Love is sensual and demanding. Subjects involving money will require attention. Now is the time to pamper yourself with a spa day or maybe simply on a new outfit. Music is great therapy this month. The money markets may tighten up and cause anxiety, but mostly in areas where it was needed.

MARS enters CANCER on the 4th: This is great energy for CANCER sun signs as well as Scorpio and Pisces. It happens every two years. Now you are on the move. This is not a time to dawdle, but rather a time for high productivity. The energy is about movement – accomplishing – and protecting those you love. This can be an emotionally aggressive energy, so be moderate in all things.

NEPTUNE is in PISCES when it retrogrades on the 16th: Watch for major storms/flooding, problems with liquids, i.e. gas, oils and then be aware that secrets/lies may also be exposed. This energy is notable especially a few days before and after the 16th.

Daily

Jun 01 – The moon is still in Virgo. Finish up tasks, take a look around and clean up anything that may need attention, including your car! This is a caring energy but one that may appear to be criticizing. Exercise is a good remedy for all today except maybe Pisces (they may want to sit in a corner and read today!)

Jun 02 – The moon continues in Virgo with some testy energy midday. Be careful of how you interact with co-workers. Feelings are edgy today so save your “correcting” thoughts and idea for another day. Anything requiring precision would work well with this energy. The moon enters VOID at 5:48pmET until 8:04pmET when it enters Libra.

Jun 03 – The moon in Libra can be hard to maneuver emotionally. When we overthink emotions, we end up with a mess! There is a surprising element of love in the air – expect the unexpected in romance/expressions of love. Music is in the air and Aries sun signs are ready for action of any kind as they act first and ask questions second!

Jun 04 – The moon still in Libra and MARS MOVES INTO CANCER. The love energy from yesterday finds the energy of Mars in Cancer a bit challenging but yet exciting. There is a desire to make things happen, to push forward. This is also true of military activities.

Jun 05 – The moon moves out of Libra at 4:57amET until 6:46amET when it moves into deep and intuitive Scorpio. The energy is high and at cross purposes. The energy from the weekend is hard to disperse. Be quiet. Get your bearings. Patience wins today. Taurus sun signs want to sing but the energy seems daunting now.

Jun 06 – The moon in Scorpio with VENUS entering TAURUS and MERCURY entering GEMINI promotes the desire to share your feelings, to be heard, and to have fun making love. What a day! At 8:35pmET the moon will enter VOID until tomorrow evening!

Jun 07 – The moon is VOID all day until 6:59pmET when it enters Sagittarius. Expect the unexpected today. There will be delays. Appointments may be rescheduled, cancelled, or simply delayed. I like VOID moon energy. Buy a lottery ticket! Enter a raffle.

Jun 08 – The moon in Sagittarius is grand for legal eagles! Colleges, military, foreign governments, all may be in the news more than usual today. With the energy building to a peak ahead of the full moon tomorrow, be careful in conversations. Words can hurt. Use them wisely. Feelings are sensitive.

Jun 09 – FULL” STRAWBERRY” MOON in SAGITTARIUS at 18 degrees and JUPITER (ruler of Sagittarius) returns to full strength. This is good news for those born under the sign of Sagittarius as well as those who have a personal planet in Sagittarius. Many will feel like travelling under this energy. Be cautious as you might tire more easily due to the energy upload! Use caution in conversation as bluntness can create failure. Gemini sun signs might feel a bit frazzled today. It will pass quickly.

Jun 10 – The full moon in Sagittarius continues to unfold until 2:20amET when it enters VOID until 7:38amET when it moves into the cautious sign of Capricorn. This weekend, look over your bills, the budget, and even credit card accounts for any activity that looks suspicious. Enjoy the day even though midafternoon, the energy throws a curve ball of strong energy that could cause angry words. Let the afternoon slide by dispersing the full moon energy.

Jun 11 – The moon continues in Capricorn and allows us time to handle our responsibilities in a way that keeps emotions out of the mix. There is a certain “aloofness” today – almost as though we should take a walk alone or at least spend some time alone with our thoughts. Practical wins today but Cancer sun signs want more feelings to be in the mix.

Jun 12 – The moon will open today again in Capricorn but by 2:45pmET it is ready for a change as it enters VOID. At 7:45pmET it moves into the eccentric sign of Aquarius. Friend are important and tonight is a great evening to get together.

Jun 13 – The moon in Aquarius sheds a friendly light on today’s activities even though there are harsh aspects at times. Expect things to be a bit “weird” today – not following the normal routine. Changes to plans seem to come out of nowhere so be prepared! Leo sun signs do not want to share today so stay home and pout.

Jun 14 – Happy Birthday to Someone Special! The moon is in friendly Aquarius again today but with warm aspects. This is a great midweek day to get outside if weather permits. Do something off the wall. See a psychic! 😊 Enjoy the feeling of being free!

Jun 15 – The moon shifts at 1:40amET from Aquarius and at 8:17amET it enters the shy sign of Pisces. The day is quiet for the most part so enjoy it. The late afternoon has cranky energy involving egos. Be considerate of those in authority! With the ruler of Pisces, Neptune, stationing to turn direct tomorrow, it may be a troubling day when it comes to seeing things clearly. Hold off on major decisions until after the 17th.

Jun 16 – NEPTUNE turns DIRECT and the moon is in Pisces (ruled by Neptune!) This is a good day for Pisces sun signs and those with Pisces planets. Entertainers/celebrities are likely to be in the news. There is also a sense of truths being covered by a fog. No worries, the truth will be exposed soon enough! This is a great day for painters of all kinds, poets and even the oil industry. Virgos might want to take a day off as too many changes are just too much right now.

Jun 17 – The moon moves out of Pisces at 7:33amET and remains in VOID until 1:55pmET when it moves into the “hot” sign of Aries. Now is the time to slow down and think twice before acting. The morning is a bit slow to get going but the afternoon picks up steam. Just be alert to head injuries or headaches. Domestic violence seems to increase when the moon is in Aries so be considerate and calm.

Jun 18 – Happy Birthday to a very special person and Happy Father’s Day to all Dads. With the moon in Aries today, the energy can turn quickly into pushy and impulsive actions and decisions. There is calmer energy in the AM with the PM a bit cranky. Brunch might be a better option than a late afternoon lunch! Be extra careful in driving or working with anything sharp. Fires are more common and can be more dangerous when the moon is in Aries.

Jun 19 – The moon starts the day again in Aries until 3:42pmET when it enters VOID until 5:53pmET when it moves into Taurus. The morning is bumpy but will even out before midnight thanks to the calming, practical energy of Taurus. Watch your money today!! Scorpio sun signs withdraw to COUNT their money today!

Jun 20 – The moon in Taurus is excellent for the creativity. Pick up your brush or pen and allow the brainstorming to begin! This is an excellent day for singers - so sing while you work today. Be careful when you are eating or drinking under this moon as the tendency is to over indulge!

Jun 21 – Today is the SUMMER SOLSTICE. The sun moves into Cancer and Mercury joins the sun in Cancer. The moon quickly moved out of Taurus overnight after a very short stay and into VOID for all day today until 6:44pmET when it enters Gemini. Expect the unexpected today. The thoughts are of home and family, security and doing the right thing.

Jun 22 – The moon in Gemini ahead of the NEW MOON tomorrow will light up the phones, emails, text messages and good old conversations. This is a communications day with mostly good energy all day, it’s just a LOT of energy so pace yourself. Sagittarius finds the indecisiveness of Gemini “crazy” and unproductive. Oh well!

Jun 23 – NEW MOON in CANCER at 2 degrees. Talk about an emotional overload... today might have everyone trying to stay home and quiet. It is a busy energy, however, and if focused in the direction of accomplishing something, it will be a productive day. Crying may come easy so take out the tissues!

Jun 24 – The fallout from yesterday’s New Moon is felt broadly. There is a certain “sweetness” to the energy today as well as a strong focus on money. Perhaps you should hold onto your wallet today as your feelings may be compromised by the moon in Cancer. Capricorn sun signs find all the emotions just too much. Ugh.

Jun 25 – The moon continues in Cancer until 2:44pmET when it enters VOID until 6:06pmET. It will then move into the spotlight loving Leo. Watch for leaders- from team leaders to world leaders – to start stepping on stage. There is a tendency to embellish the truth many times under this energy so check things out before you decide.

Jun 26 – The moon in Leo offers an opportunity for fun and sports. This energy could have started last night! Now is the time for generosity or donating to your favorite charity. Hug your children and your pets today! Laugh out loud, be funny, bask in the sun if you can. Enjoy the fact that you are admired!!

Jun 27 – The moon is in Leo all day until 5:12pmET when it enters VOID for a couple hours. At 8:41pmET it will move into Virgo. The evening commute may cause delays but the energy is dreamy so allow your thoughts to wander to peaceful scenes and loving people. Once it enters Virgo the focus will shift! Once in Virgo, Pisces should pull back and hum a song. ;-)

Jun 28 – The moon in Virgo is always a great time to clean house, car, have a mani/pedi, get a haircut, or go over in detail any reports or statistics that need your attention. If you feel the urge to help others, volunteering is a great way to spend the day today.

Jun 29 – The moon continues in Virgo but adds a bit of disruptive energy that might cause verbal snipping. Speak softly and without criticism and the day will be a joy. The evening does present tense conversation possibilities. Since the moon moved into VOID at 4:34pmET this may be a better “early to bed, early to rise” night.

Jun 30 – The moon shifts from VOID into Libra early at 3:02amET. Now the mind quickens and the desire to understand why things are happening the way they are. Watch over analyzing today. Keep the thoughts open to all possibilities. Using this energy for a creative project would be an excellent way to offset any overthinking! Aries sun signs just have issues with the energy today, so lay low.

Noon Cycles including Void of Course Moons (VOC or VOID)

New Moon: A new moon initiates energy that is very strong for four weeks or one lunar cycle but influences the year until another new moon occurs in that same sign - usually a year later. What that energy involves is indicated by the sign in which the new moon occurs and personally, which house/aspects etc are activated in your astrological chart. If the new moon is an eclipse the energy is tripled.

Full Moon: The full moon that follows two weeks after the new moon brings the energy of the new moon out into the open, or to a peak. It continues to unfold energy for two more weeks until the next new moon when the cycle begins all over again highlighting a different area of our lives. Those emotional influences can last a year.

Void Moon: When the transiting moon makes no aspect to a transiting planet, it is considered to be VOID. During these void periods - which can last a few minutes or a few days - it is best to avoid signing sign contracts, interviewing for jobs, or setting important appointments. Why? Because appointments are usually delayed or rescheduled altogether or they do not turn out as expected. Contracts have delays or have to be re-negotiated, etc. Job interviews turn out to be non-productive or empty promises are made. If, for instance, a first interview does occur and appears positive, you may be asked to start ASAP or have to interview with additional people. Individually, if you are under excellent aspects from transiting planets, this will then be a good time to proceed even though the moon is void.

I find that during void moon energy, solutions to problems can be found. Therefore, it is an excellent time for lawyers to find loopholes in cases or uncover evidence that will turn a case in their favor. Lost items are found or returned during this energy at a higher percentage than when the moon is not void. Any computer glitches that have evaded solution can suddenly be resolved. You can be lucky and win a lottery or raffle. Keep in mind that during a VOID MOON, any activities undertaken usually take TWICE as long to accomplish!!! There is an element of LUCK associated with VOID energy. Use it wisely! :-)

One thing is for certain -- always expect the unexpected during the time of a VOID of COURSE MOON and be prepared for delays or cancellations or a surprising turn of events. This can be felt as positive or negative!

Retrograde Planets in 2017

When a planet is retrograde, its energy is weakened, misunderstood or projected in an unclear manner. The sun signs, industries, activities and so forth ruled by the retrograde planet, will feel held back, restricted, misunderstood or weakened. This is also a time when you are given an opportunity to re-do, re-evaluate these areas. Many times it brings about a better solution or happier direction.

Jupiter Retrograde February 6, 2017 - June 9, 2017, in Libra
Jupiter will pull back from 23 degrees LIBRA to 13 LIBRA. If you have planets or your Ascendant, Jupiter will touch those planets again. Jupiter is the planet known for being kind and generous. It offers a certain amount of protection in the area of your life (astrological chart) it is touching. While it is retrograde, it loses some of its strength. Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius. Jupiter is a benefic planet bringing a cushion in times of falls, luck in times unexpected. It is like having an angel on your shoulder when it is in your sun sign. Jupiter can also bring pending legal matters to resolution or bring in new law/legal issues. Religions, higher institutions of learning, foreign places and people, judges and court rulings are all ruled by Jupiter. When it is retrograde, it is active just not as strong. If you are involved in any of the above-mentioned subjects, be aware these could slow down or be put on hold until Jupiter returns to full power in June. This slowdown allows time for review of what has already occurred. The sign of Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter. If you are born under this sign, you may feel as though you are a little slower than usual during this retrograde period. Use the time wisely to “catch up” and be ready to push forward once the retrograde period is over.

Saturn Retrograde April 6, 2017 - August 25, 2017, in Sagittarius
Saturn rules the sign of Capricorn. It also rules the activities involved with government, authority figures, responsibilities and the elderly. Now is the time to think about your budget, commitments, etc that started back in Sep 2015. Are there any changes you want to make? Double check all credit card balances, bank accounts, and any legal papers you may have signed. This is a really positive time review your budget for beneficial changes. Now is not the time for committing to a relationship or additional responsibilities. Slow down. Review. If you are having any major dental surgery done during this retrograde, it would be wise to find the best energy day possible before you do it. Remember when a planet if retrograde, it is weak. Saturn rules the teeth!

Pluto Retrograde April 20, 2017 - September 28, 2017, in Capricorn
Pluto takes many, many years to transit a sign (planet or not!). The transit of it through a sign will create an impact that affect generations. It is considered to be a heavy weight when it comes to banking or financial institutions. Having Pluto retrograde also pulls back some of its great influence from Scorpio sun signs and Scorpio ascendants as it is the ruler of Scorpio. Pluto gets along really well with Jupiter. By the end of April, both planets will be retrograde. This could create challenges with foreign interests or countries, money, executive/legislative branches, banks, educational institutions and even pipelines! Reassessment of pipelines, tunnels, hoses, caves, etc makes good use of this retrograde energy. Scorpio sun signs and Scorpio ascendants may not have the gusto you crave, but you can still get a lot accomplished.

Transiting Planets in 2017

If a slower moving planet connects with one of your personal planets such as your Sun, Venus, Mercury or Mars, it will initiate a reaction or event regarding the planet that is touched. Example: transiting Jupiter connects with your Venus. You could simply have a wonderful couple of "feeling good" days while this is active or maybe win a lottery, fall in love with someone or something, have a face-lift, settle a legal case, or set up a new banking account. It is helpful to know if this will be happening so you can plan better and be prepared to make it a good "connection". Here are the slower moving planets and the signs they will be travelling through in 2017:

Jupiter in Libra until October 2017. Jupiter is the fastest moving of the slower planets, staying approximately one year in each sign. It takes approximately 12 years for Jupiter to travel through all 12 signs. The first, the Libra sun signs will have this “guardian angel” energy for a full year. Until October 2017, Jupiter sends positive energy to the arts, music, relationships, agreements, and even make-overs. Because LIBRA is a cardinal sign, those born under the sign of Capricorn, Aries and Cancer or who have planets in these signs, will experience the effects of this transit at some point as Jupiter contacts your sun sign. The effects could be pleasant with opportunities knocking at your door or you can be feel frustrated or irritated. The choice is really yours. Use the energy in a positive way! In October, Jupiter will quietly move into Scorpio to finish the rest of 2017. Watch for more on this change of energies in the coming October’s forecast!

Saturn in Sagittarius until December 2017. The last time Saturn was in Sagittarius was late 1985 into early 1988. It takes about 2.5 years to transit one sign. It is now Sagittarius’ turn to feel the structuring, disciplining and in some cases restricting energy of this transit. November born Sagittarius have this transit in their rear view mirror now. Yay! Those born December 10 – 22 (and those with any planets in Sagittarius 21 degrees and higher) will at some point during 2017, feel this transit. By the end of this year Saturn will complete its transit of Sagittarius and move into the sign of Capricorn in December. Saturn’s energy helps us better manage our talents and urges. It can bring unexpected responsibilities or even health issues that require discipline and focus to overcome. Commitments made during a transit of Saturn to a personal planet (sun, moon, mercury, venus, mars) have endurance energy/longevity. Negatively, they can feel like heavy responsibilities! But it is not a bad energy for a good marriage or business partnership if all other aspects are supportive. This is the time to stay current with your medical exams especially if you are born under the sign of Sagittarius, have personal planets in Sagittarius, have Sagittarius rising, have Sagittarius on your work/health house (6th). If you have planets in the sign of Gemini at 21 degrees or higher, Saturn will, at some point, create an opposing energy. This can bring limitations (including medical conditions) or simply push you to organize and discipline your activities. It CAN, at times, feel really burdensome – even depressing - having Saturn in your sun sign (or opposing it. Given the ability to focus and accomplish now, use Saturn’s positive side to finish up projects or goals that have been set aside. Take on any added responsibilities as a learning experience that will benefit you. Hard work is usually required when Saturn is in your sign so be prepared to work hard and be rewarded accordingly. Remember, work smarter not harder.

Uranus, in Aries until 2018, will continue transiting the sign of Aries moving from 20 degrees to 28 degrees Aries. It will retrograde back to 24 degrees by the end of 2017. If you have a planet in your astro chart at 20 - 28 degrees Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn, Uranus will energize that planet sometime in 2017. Libra sun signs born Oct 10 - 23 will feel this energy as an opposing force. It is challenging but not as aggressively challenging as those born in the sign of Aries will feel. You could suddenly decide to quit a job, seek a divorce, change your hair style, or even relocate when this happens. The energy of freedom loving Uranus is not predictable except to say it is unpredictable. Sudden changes, accidents, changes in beliefs, strong desire to be free, etc can all be part of this energy. Be careful in your desire to feel free, to break the rules, to make radical changes, especially if you are aged 41-43. Remember, once the transit completes, you will be living with the consequences of your actions and decisions! Uranus is sending kind vibes to Aquarius and Gemini but challenges Libra, Cancer, Capricorn, and of course, Aries.

Neptune, in Pisces until 2025, will move from 9 degrees to 14 degrees Pisces but during the year it retrogrades ending 2017 direct at 11 degrees. It is very slow moving. Be cautious in business dealings and LOVE as Neptune energy can be evasive and deceiving you before you know it. Neptune has a strong spiritual side and connects to the higher realms. It also rules all liquids and the oceans, water, floods, drugs, hospitals, jails, bodily fluids including perspiration! Perhaps if your planets are contacted by this transiting Neptune, you will find yourself returning to church, restoring your faith, being drawn to the beach, or finding that true love! Watch out, though! Make sure you remove your rose colored glasses before making major decisions. Virgo sun signs may find themselves working with Pisces sun signs or changing careers to work in a Pisces industry i.e., oil, ink, ocean liners, entertainment, singing, children, any music or acting, etc. Virgo sun signs will feel the opposing energy creating feelings of vagueness and mystery. Enjoy this opportunity to not only dream but to also see your dreams come true.

Pluto, in Capricorn, will transit 16, 17, 18, 19 degrees of Capricorn in 2017. Those born Jan 6-11, Apr 5-10, Jul 8-12 and Oct 9-12 will most likely feel this transit more directly. In an astrological chart if you have personal planets at 16-19 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer or Libra, you will feel the transformative power of Pluto as it interacts with that planet. It can involve corruption, drugs, sexual desires, skin and teeth issues, government planning, the disciplining parent, deaths, and big business to name a few. Pluto in Capricorn helps define economic changes that will be beneficial and strong. Capricorn rules big business and government and government officials. In 2017, Pluto in Capricorn will provide the impetus to release or destroy anything that has served its purpose in our lives. The changes being made will be long lasting ones as Capricorn is cautious, practical and very responsible. A positive use of the energy would be to take the initiative and change areas of your life that need improvement – before it is done for you! Emotionally you could embark on a new way of looking at life. A word to the wise should be sufficient. Virgo and Taurus – fellow earth signs of Capricorn – should find the transformations and changes, very positive and easier to integrate than other sun signs.

May the force remain strong with you throughout 2017!
