Planetary Cycles
for June 2010

Gemini brings delightful social interaction

The sun entered Gemini, the sign of the Twins, on May 21/22. Those of us born with the sun, moon, or rising sign in Gemini connect people, events and knowledge for everyone’s benefit, and they do so with an engaging wit that endears them to all. Gemini’s are intelligent, entertaining people with diverse interests, making them excellent story-tellers, teachers or writers. While the sun is in the mutable air sign of Gemini, activity increases, new friendships are made, our social calendars fill up and exciting new information is shared.

Springtime energies express new changes

New energies begun at the Spring Equinox find full expression in Gemini. Every spring, the astrological New Year begins in March when the sun enters Aries, the sign of new beginnings. The sun progresses to Taurus, where we ground and stabilize our new vision, bringing it into form, and then the sun moves into Gemini, where the new form gets communicated and distributed. During the time the sun transits Gemini, from late May until June 21, we will experience some interesting twists and turns and we may make important, life-changing decisions!

Wide-scale social changes begin to unfold

It seems apparent that we are experiencing remarkable times in our planetary evolution. This June, we enter a transition that will shape the quality of experience on planet Earth for a generation to come. Several unique planetary alignments mark this passage for humanity. Uranus, the planet known for bringing change and revolution on a world-wide scale, entered the sign of Aries. The last time it did this was at the beginning of the Great Depression in America in the late 1920s. This may not be an exact repeat of the past, but we are certainly in for some wide-scale social changes fueled by an unprecedented world-wide financial meltdown. Exactly how our lives will change becomes more apparent as we enter the coming summer months and over the next two years, but for now, be extraordinarily clear about your values and stay true to the wisdom of your Spirit.

Chiron in Pisces calls for a mass awakening of souls

Chiron, the tiny planet with a wide, elliptical 51-year orbit between Saturn and Uranus, just entered Pisces. Chiron symbolizes the human capacity for healing and rejuvenation when higher principles are honored. The last time Chiron was in Pisces was in the early to late 1960s during one of the most remarkable eras in humanity’s evolution in which we had a full-scale social revolution ignited by an unjust war and fueled by the volatile mixture of drugs, spiritual awakening, emerging women’s rights, and sexual freedom. As Chiron again moves into the mystical waters of Pisces, we will experience a deep desire for spiritual awakening. This time the entire world will participate in an unprecedented outpouring of love, healing and peaceful interactions that guide us into the coming Age of Light.

A new season of unprecedented
social change begins

On June 12, we have a new moon in Gemini, starting a new, month-long cycle imbued with inner spiritual longing. The season of big social change is fast approaching and we are encouraged with this new moon to clear any remaining unwanted patterns of thinking and communicating. Goals that uplift our world are being supported energetically by the universal wisdom that guides humanity. We are filled with Light and a high frequency of unconditional love at the same time that much of the world is reeling from unprecedented changes bringing unforeseen challenges. New patterns of being and relating are gestating now within the heart of humanity.

Lunar Eclipse initiates a powerful
turning point for humanity

The sun completes its transit through Gemini, entering the sign of Cancer at the Summer Solstice on June 21. This stimulates a longing for the simple values of love, home and family, but current planetary alignments continually bring our awareness to the billions of brothers and sisters on our planet without adequate food, clean water and other necessities. One of the most powerful planetary indicators of the year occurs with the lunar eclipse in Capricorn on June 26. This eclipse brings the potential for huge changes and profound transformation of consciousness touching all of humanity. With the powerful planetary configurations happening at this time, we collectively enter a point of no return with upcoming global changes; we have reached a “tipping point” after which we must live differently, choose more wisely and humanely, and experience our essential oneness with all of humanity.

“Best Days”

Although every day is full of opportunities, some days are more conducive to beginning or advancing our goals. Brand new projects have the best opportunity for success when initiated on the following dates: June 12 and 14. Other good dates are June 4, 5, 11 and 28. The following days, although not great for starting brand new projects, are good days in which we may expect positive outcomes with existing projects: June 1-3, 7, 17, 18, 21-22 and 29. The rest of the days in June are best spent visioning, refining and improving, or redefining what is already in motion.
