From an astrological point of view, May was a pretty active month with a lot of movement going on among the stars. As we stepped out of May, you may have felt a little exhausted and overwhelmed. While it was certainly a positive one for most of us, as well as full of love, romance, excitement, and creativity – the energy that May brought into our lives were fast-paced and demanding, keeping us constantly on our toes.
One of the major events during May was the transit of Uranus in Taurus, which occurred for the first time in 84 years. Kicking off the month still experiencing the energy of the Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th of April, May also included the Taurus New Moon, the transit of Uranus in Taurus, which we already mentioned, as well as the Sagittarius Full Moon. The month was profound, as well as powerful and life-altering, but after a time of such great change and growth, we are all eager for a much-needed break.
However, the month of June will bring us a lot more stable energies and things which will finally settle down permitting us to stop for a moment and take a deep breath. This will be a perfect period to sharpen our focus, as well as concentrate on the things which we need to work on.
Another aspect that the Full Moon is going to be illuminating is communication. Our deepest feelings, as well as thoughts and ideas, are going to come to the surface in the first half of June which will be later amplified by the New Moon that happened on the 13th of June in the sign of Gemini.
It is also going to bring us a sense of stability, security, and ease. We have made some solid life changes previously, and now we have the chance to sit back and just adjust to the new ‘normal’ which we have created. The New Moon always brings some fresh energy which inspires us to get up and get things moving.
The 21st of June is going to bring the first big energy shift of the month with the summer solstice, in the Northern Hemisphere. This will be the longest day of sunlight through the whole year, which will bring us a renewed energy, drawing this energy from the Sun.
However, the solstice will not be the most important event in June. Mars is going to have the honor to slow down the energies a bit by going retrograde on the 26th, and it will not be moving directly until the end of August. That will be the largest shift in energy, remaining until the 27th of August.
During this period, any attempt to start something new in your life will fall short. Some recommendations of astrologists are to avoid starting new relationships, new projects at work, as well as any major new changes in your lifestyle, such as moving to a new home.
Instead, it will be a good period to get some rest, introspect, as well as rethink the steps which we are going to take in future. Also, we may experience major changes in our points of view, so we should not be surprised if we find ourselves leaving the old patterns of thinking and acting which don’t serve any purpose anymore.
Somewhere at the end of June, we are going to have a total of 5 planets in our solar system in retrograde, including Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune, and Mars, making the energy in the cosmos very slow and deliberate. The tendency of planets going retrograde is going to continue in the next month too, and at its peak, we will have six planets moving retrograde.
So much retrograde energy can feel a little bit intense, and we may also be encouraged to focus or look at one particular area of our lives with great detail.
The month of June will come to an end with the Capricorn Full Moon on the 27th. This will be a quite powerful Full Moon, and it is going to bring about some challenging emotions which include sadness, fear, guilt, and restriction, and it will also prepare us for the Eclipses that will come in July.
You are going to find yourself face to face with the cause of these emotions, be it a toxic relationship, as well as unaddressed emotional baggage or some current negative choices which force you to acknowledge the areas that you have the power to change and address.
You should not underestimate your ability to create a better, as well as happier life.
