Angelic Astrology – June 2016
By Rev. Colleen, contributing writer for Angel Messenger
The month of June has a numerological vibration of 15/6. The 6 vibration gives us a focus on home and family, and there may be changes in this area of our life. It is also about emotions, nurturing others, responsibilities, protection, harmony and balance. And, there can also be an emphasis on creative expression and a heightening of our intuitive faculties this month.
The 15th Major Arcana in the Tarot is the Devil which focuses on the Path of Fear, and is ruled by the sign Capricorn, according to the book entitled, “Essence of the Tarot” by Megan Skinner. This card represents fears, insecurities and the shadow side of our ego. It represents the material world and our material desires, such as fame, achievement, wealth and fortune. It is important to understand that having money or being recognized for your talents is not a negative thing, but if you are fueled by these desires and it becomes an obsession, then you have crossed the boundaries into the shadow side of your nature.
The Devil Card also rules the established order, power struggles, and those who seem to be in control of our 3rd dimensional reality. The focus of this Path is about letting go of your fears, for fear is just an illusion of your own making. It is time to transmute unresolved issues and subconscious desires, and let go of judgments against yourself and/or others. Accept and love all aspects of yourself and this is how you integrate and heal the “shadow side”………Love Heals All!
The first major energy we experience this month is a New Moon at 14-15 degrees Gemini on June 4th. There are a lot of astrological aspects around the time of this lunation. The Sun, Moon and Venus in Gemini are in a challenging connection with Neptune in Pisces, Jupiter in Virgo, and Saturn in Sagittarius, bringing confusion to self-identity, relationships, and financial circumstances and situations in our life.
On June 7th Mercury in Taurus will pass the degree of its shadow period from the Mercury Retrograde we experienced at the end of April and for most of May. On the 12th, he will then move into the sign of Gemini, joining the Sun and Venus in this sign of the Twins. Mercury in Gemini is a quick thinker and is able to mentally multi-task. He is not very grounded, however, and is prone to anxiety, nervous energy, and flip-flopping from one thought or idea to another.
Neptune moves into retrograde motion at 12 degrees Pisces on June 13th, which will intensify the energies of confusion, illusion, creativity and the spiritual realm. This planet will be almost in an exact square aspect to Saturn (karma, lessons and restrictions) in Sagittarius, and within orb of an opposition to Jupiter (expansion, knowledge and belief systems) in Virgo. This is called a T-Square, a challenging energy, which we have felt building up all through the month of May. It comes to a head in mid-June and then will start to dissipate by the end of the month when Jupiter starts to pull away from this configuration.
Because all of these planets are in mutable signs it means that our thoughts, ideas, and perceptions are all over the place, and we may struggle to make sense out of what is going on in our life and in the world. What is real and what is fantasy may be up for debate. It will be important to stay balanced through meditation, exercise, and other spiritual practices during this time so that we can see and feel our truth, keep the faith, and allow blessings to manifest.
On June 17th Venus, the planet that rules women and the Divine Feminine, moves into the nurturing and sensitive sign of Cancer. She will be more comfortable here then she was in Gemini as she will be able to devote her energies to the love and attention of home and family, children, and tending to those she cares about.
We now arrive at our Full Moon for the month at 29 degrees of Sagittarius on June 20th. The last degree of a sign is considered a critical degree, emphasizing the energies of that sign….and a Full Moon is always an intensification of the energy, before a release and letting go is required. Sagittarius rules our religious and philosophical belief systems, higher knowledge and education, judgments and opinions, truth and freedom!
This lunation, like the New Moon earlier in the month, is also a busy one. We have Mercury in Gemini opposing Saturn in Sagittarius and square Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Virgo. This will be activating the T-Square energy configuration that we spoke of earlier in this article. The North Node, which is a Destiny Point, will also be connecting with Jupiter which will have a fated effect on situations and circumstances that we experience. And, the Sun will be moving into the sign of Cancer signaling the Summer Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere. This is a lot of energy so you can expect that we will feel it!
On June 26th Jupiter is creating a positive connection to transformative Pluto! This is expanding us into our sense of power. As we start to believe in ourselves, and take the next small step towards our goals, we start to understand that anything is possible!
We end the month with Mercury, the Messenger planet, moving into the sign of Cancer, and more importantly, Mars turning back to direct motion at 23 degrees of Scorpio, both on June 29th.
Mercury in the sensitive water sign Cancer will become a little more nurturing in his communication style. Thoughts may be more focused on home and family during the next few days as he travels through this emotional and intuitive placement.
The important energy that ends this month is the fact that Mars is redirecting itself to move forward once again! It will take him until mid-July to pick up speed, and until the first week in August before moving back into Sagittarius. This will be a very welcome energy as we all will be able to start implementing our plans and allow progress in the unfolding of our Paths!
