strology for June 2020

Note for June: A couple of tricky squares add interest and spice to June but there are some sweet conjunctions as well. The big news for this month is the eclipses – one in Sagittarius and one in Cancer that basically bookend the month. and lead up to a third (in July) in Capricorn. Eclipses are for breaking patterns and eclipse magic is a real thing. Learn more here.

6/1: Rabbit, Rabbit!!! Happy June!

6/3: Sun conjunct Venus. This brings light and revelations to current relationships, and, since Venus is Retrograde, it has the potential to do the same for past connections as well. If relationships are not your current focus then finances may be considered.
Ask: What have my relationships taught me?

6/5: Full Moon + Lunar Eclipse at 15 degrees Sagittarius, 2:12 PM. Some ideas for how to work with the Full Moon can be found here: https://brianasaussy.com/how-to-honor-the-full-moon/ and here: https://brianasaussy.com/six-months-of-magic-every-full-moon/
Ask: What freedom am I ready to pursue?

6/5: Lunar Eclipse at 15 degrees Sagittarius at 2:12 PM
Ask: What comforts are keeping me from true freedom?

6/6: Sun square Mars. This is a day that may prove to be difficult with lots of potential for aggression and impatience. Take all of that energy and hit the gym!
Ask: Where do I need to focus my energy now?

6/11: Neptune square Sun. Confusion reigns with this square and you may experience delays or setbacks on an artistic endeavor. Do not give in to any addictive tendencies on this day and when in doubt, just let yourself rest.
Ask: How can I best rest at the moment?

6/12: Waning Quarter Moon at 22 degrees Pisces, 10:24 PM. A reminder that this is a great time to banish: https://brianasaussy.com/what-are-you-really-banishing/
Ask: What addictive thoughts, behaviors, and/or attitudes do I need to banish?

6/13: Mars conjunct Neptune. This conjunction can energize your art and spiritual life or it can leave you feeling drained and not much in between. Work with the energy to organize a creative project or put the finishing touches on one and avoid making super important decisions on this day.
Ask: Where will my art best respond to my energy?

6/17-18: Mercury Retrograde begins. Retrograde starts at 11:59 PM in Cancer and then stations direct on July 12th at 3:26 AM
Ask: What inside your home needs to be restructured?

6/20: New Moon + Solar Eclipse at 0 degrees Cancer, 1:41 AM – Summer Solstice. Here are Four Ways to Honor the New Moon just in case you missed them: https://brianasaussy.com/4-ways-honor-new-moon/
Ask: What home am I ready to create?

6/20: Sun enters Cancer 4:44 PM — Summer Solstice
Ask: What sanctuary am I ready to create?

6/21: Solar Eclipse at 0 degrees Cancer at 1:41 AM
Ask: What no longer nourishes me?

6/22: Neptune Retrograde. Retrograde starts at 11:31 PM and stations direct on November 28th at 6:36 PM.
Ask: What unfinished creative/dreamwork do I need to turn my attention to now? What unhelpful fantasy needs to be revised

6/25: Venus turns direct!

6/27: Mars moves into Aries. Mars will be in its favorite sign for the rest of 2020 due to a long retrograde period in the Autumn. Mars in Aries gives us all more energy and inspiration. This is a great time to take on or begin an audacious new endeavor.
Ask: Where am I ready to light a fire?

6/28: Waxing Quarter at 7 degrees Libra, 3:16 AM. This is the perfect time to brush up on your divination practice! https://brianasaussy.com/teaching/20-question-tarot/
Ask: What Justice am I committed to?

6/30: Jupiter and Pluto Conjunction. This pairing occurs every 13 years. It is sometimes referred to as the “mogul” pairing and carries a lot of potential for creating deep wealth and money magic.
Ask: Where am I ready to deepen my wealth and abundance?

Mercury Retrograde in Cancer: The Ties that Bind

Purification and Cleansing

M

iracles, family

When Mercury retrogrades through Cancer issues around family, tribe, and tribal identity often emerge. These can be national or global in scope – nationalism, for instance, is a shadow side of the Cancerian dedication to family and what is “one’s own” but they also show up in our personal sphere and in our own families.

Just as many of us have spent more time in our homes of late, many of us have also been around our families much more than we usually are – and during the best hours of the day. Chances are that there have already been scuffles and misunderstandings and that, by the time June rolls around and we are in Mercury RX territory you and your family members have had some hard conversations.

If you haven’t had these conversations but know that hurt feelings have been simmering in the background then do not be surprised if during this RX period it all comes out to the fore and there is a blowup. It may not be fiery (we are after all dealing with the cardinal Water sign of Cancer) but it is definitely going to be felt. It is possible that right around this Mercury retrograde we will hear calls and be given opportunities to return to the “way that things were before” the Coronavirus hit.

If this is the case then I won’t be surprised to see this Mercury RX in Cancer have us re-thinking what was normal before we had to self-isolate and quarantine with our loved ones and if that “normal” is something we want to change or adjust in various ways. This is an ideal time for peaceful homework.

While things with living family members may feel a bit tense or stressed we may also well feel pressure from the family members who have gone beyond the veil, our Ancestors.

Our Ancestors have collectively very active since the beginning of the year and their activity is only increasing. If you have not felt really connected to your Ancestors then this time of Mercury’s descent into the Underworld might have you sensing their presence in a stronger way.

As is the case with Mercury retrograde periods this is also a time to reflect on what makes your family feel most together and what does not. If there are any wounds with either immediate or extended family members then now is a wonderful time to address them and seek reconciliation and healing. If there are any big issues around the family that need to be discussed and they have not been addressed before Mercury retrogrades in Cancer, then I recommend that they are put on hold until after the retrograde has completed.

Partners who have been in a tense relationship should recognize that now is not the time to either try to “fix” things or make a final decision about the future of the relationship.
