Sun Signs for June ’18
(To see your Sun sign right away, scroll down.)
The information in this column is limited. It does not replace your seeing your astrologer. If you know the sign of your Moon and your Ascending sign, read those sections also. This information is helpful because it mentions planets passing through your sign. These do bring opportunities.
Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in June. The emphasis this month is on the signs Aquarius, Gemini, Cancer, and Leo. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Aquarius knows, Gemini communicates, Cancer feels, and Leo rules & plays. Mars is in Aquarius this month and shows stress and/or activity with humanity. Venus opposes Mars in week 3 and shows trouble between the sexes but also art stimulation. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3, and Mercury in weeks 1 and 2 are in Gemini, and add flexibility to our repertoire. The Sun in week 4, Mercury in weeks 3 and 4, and Venus in weeks 1 and 2 are in Cancer and put focus on home, family, and feeling matters. Venus in weeks 3 and 4 and Mercury from the 29th are in Leo and increase power and play in us and in the world. Jupiter continues in Scorpio and promotes intense issues like sex and money. (Look at what has happened since Weinstein, Sexual missteps by men are being exposed and judged and this may improve male female relationships in the future after a bit of tension.) Taxes and insurance will get special attention. (The tax bill has passed.) Saturn has moved into its own sign, Capricorn. It stays through 2020, and becomes very strong. Saturn here is about being practical and realistic. It represents setting and achieving goals and is climbing the mountain of accomplishment. Capricorns, Taurus, and Virgos should become more practical. Capricorns, Aries, Cancer, and Libra need to get rest, avoid overwork, and remember to seek joy. Uranus has moved from late in fire sign, Aries to early in earth sign, Taurus on May 15th. As noted in my Jan. newsletter and my 2017/2018 events piece, the shift of this unpredictable planet from fire to earth suggested volcanoes to me and that is what happened with Kiluea. As the red alert and ash developed in mid- May, there was a new Moon in Taurus and Mars formed a square to Uranus in addition to the Uranus sign shift.. For us, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius can expect the unexpected. It is important to be sensible and not live on the edge. And let’s watch out for any thing or person that is unreliable. On the plus side, new vistas can open up to these signs. And Virgo, and Capricorn can also expect new vistas to open up to them. This will end when Uranus goes back into Aries in November ’18.
A New Moon in Gemini on the 12th, and the 13th shows a new start for us in thought. A Full Moon in Capricorn on the afternoon of the 27th, 28th, and the 29th contrasts public life and private life.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Pisces on the 5th, 6th, and much of the 7th and in Virgo on the 18th, 19th, and early morning on the 20th
Israel continues in the news. In their birth chart, early Scorpio rises, a Taurus Sun is in the 7th, and Moon, Pluto, Saturn, and Mars are in Leo in the 10th. Iran has three planets in Aquarius forming a grand cross with Israel’s planets. This is a tense relationship. The U.S. Embassy moved to Jerusalem under a Taurus new moon, a new start.
The Pluto Uranus square is over. It made the extreme unpredictable and the unpredictable more extreme. When you heard about events that are unusually bad, like tornadoes ( Moore OK.) and earthquakes, Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Colorado floods, the Philippines typhoon, the Washington mudslide, the IL F4, the Ca. Drought, and the recent floods in Texas, the floods and fires in Ca. In ’17, and the hurricanes of ’17, this was one of the culprits. This aspect existed in the early 30s. I have concluded that this square also represented among other conflicts, the conflict between the left (Uranus) and the right (Capricorn). I have finally resolved it in my own mind. With so much news coverage of the conflicting positions, I see it as an opportunity to see the good that the left has to offer and to see the good that the right has to offer. I’ll be writing a paper on the Uranus/Pluto square soon and posting on facebook. Friend me. I’ll include the good things that are coming from this square like new discoveries about death and the afterlife. This long term square ended at mid-May.
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 1 , 3, 11, 18, 19, 24, & 29. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
