Monday 18th June
Moon in Gemini – The Moon passes a quick kiss to Venus in the early hours before turning on her to mutter some nasty words out of earshot whilst squaring Chiron. Meanwhile Uranus makes a conjunction to asteroid Echo which trips off wails of me, me, me and no one seems to want to listen to anyone else. And if that wasn’t enough, Mars makes an irritated quincunx to Eris and consequently she’s in the mood to bang everyone’s heads together!

Be careful that what you say doesn’t come back to haunt you today – especially gossip. If you are on the receiving end of Chinese whispers, bow out gracefully until the heat passes. It’s a three wise monkey day – See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

Tuesday 19th June
New Moon in Gemini on the Sabian Symbol “The First Mockingbird Of Spring. “The forward momentum of the world hinges on our ability to be like the mocking bird – to weave together what we have learned from others and translate it into something of our own. It’s about letting your originality shine through, daring to show a little piece of your soul even if it makes you feel a little vulnerable…”

Wednesday 20th June
Blessings for the Summer Solstice! The Sun enters Cancer at 23:08 UT time. A few hours earlier, Mercury forms a square to Saturn putting you in a serious frame of mind. You may be plagued by doubts, wondering if you did the right thing, dredging up old memories and fretting over times gone. Stop. You did the best that you could with the information available and the level of growth you had achieved back then. Time has moved on. Life is too short for regrets. The Summer Solstice marks the longest day. Celebrate the light! Let yourself remember the good times, the high points in your life. Let them bathe you in warmth and lighten your heart.

Thursday 21st June
Venus sextile Uranus, quincunx Pluto. In matters of love and money, in order to take up on new opportunities or follow flashes of intuition, there’s a need let go of something else: therein lies the rub. You may feel like you can see the way ahead but until you change something, its all just academic. Dig deep down into your core to discover what really matters.

Mercury sextile Mars later in the day may motivate you to start talking over what needs to be done. Choose someone with a sympathetic ear who has a practical edge. A objective opinion may be all that’s needed.

Friday 22nd June
Moon in Leo, Mercury conjunct asteroid Eurydice. Sometimes it’s necessary to depend on others, to trust that they will follow your lead. Sometimes it’s hard to be the one that people look to for answers. Your self-belief will inspire them. Keep your eyes focused on the goal.

Saturday 23rd June
Ceres enters Gemini – Nurture others by talking with them; listen to them. Read to your children or even your partner. Do you remember how comforting it was to have someone read to you when you were a child? Pass the time of day with a stranger, engage in conversation with a colleague you don’t know well. Sow the seeds of friendship. Buy a new journal and write down your thoughts. These are the seeds of the future.

Sunday 24th June
Sun trine Neptune, Uranus square Pluto. The big day is here! Intuitively feel your way ahead. With Uranus square Pluto, massive change is occurring, structures are shifting into new forms. The landscape may seem unrecognisable, the future unknown. Tune into the vibe around you, tune out negativity. Use your imagination to visualise the future you want to see.
