June 2015 Astrology Forecast
The day-by-day astrology forecast for June 2015
June 1: Early birds have reason to smile as the waxing Scorpio Moon forms an uplifting trine aspect to loving Venus just as the new day gets under way. However, by 7AM the Moon begins a sluggish void of course period that persists until mid-afternoon when the Moon reaches Sagittarius. Usually, we would expect the Moon in Sagittarius to rekindle hopes and raise enthusiasm levels. However, Saturn now sits retrograde at the first degree of the Sign of the Archer. The late afternoon lunar conjunction with the dour Ringed Planet raises doubts. It may also throw up a road block or two, delaying great ambitions. With the Full Moon now less than twenty-four hours away, whatever path is taken, onward and upward!
Moon in Scorpio v/c 7:01AM-2:39PM Moon enters Sagittarius.
June 2: There are mysteries in life. Today's Full "Strawberry" Moon in philosophical Sagittarius sees the Moon in opposition to the Sun in quick-witted Gemini. Usually, the light of reason is strong and clear under such a powerful alignment but both 'lights' are at odds with Neptune, the nebulous planet of otherworldly, transcendental experiences. The Sun is also flanked by Mars and retrograde Mercury, likely making thoughts more passionate yet nuanced and subtle. Don't rush to conclusions. Some ideas may be revealed as empty and meaningless, quite separate and apart from reality. Everything is not what it seems. Exercise patience and keep your mind open to different, even revolutionary perspectives. Watch the Moonrise. A late night fire sign Grand Trine may occasion a great many belly laughs as well as breathtaking leaps in consciousness.

June 3: We're in void of course Moon mode throughout the work day, making the midweek 'hump' seem mountainous. Coming in the wake of yesterday's dramatic Full Moon, many folks will notice a steep let down. Sagging energy levels and ennui can make it seem as though little of importance is being accomplished. Outwardly, that may be true. However, inward, honest soul searching can be instructive. The Moon is in Sagittarius, the sign of knowledge, philosophy, religion and politics. The less engaging atmosphere presents an opportunity to reflect on basic beliefs and assumptions, and perhaps discard concepts that have been outgrown, no longer make sense or serve a useful purpose. The Moon reaches the more motivating environs of Capricorn after sunset. Use the evening hours to organize and prepare for tomorrow.
Moon in Sagittarius v/c 1:59AM-8:50PM Moon in Capricorn.
June 4: In the everyday world, success most often depends on a person's focus and intentions. On this day, an afternoon sextile between the industrious Capricorn Moon and mystical Neptune lets divine inspiration enter into commonplace activities. If one's heart and mind are open to the possibility, a mundane task could be a gateway to a greater, more meaningful spiritual experience. As the Zen saying goes, "Before enlightenment chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water." A single job done well or the sum total of what has been accomplished over a lifetime generates deep satisfaction tonight.
Moon in Capricorn.
June 5: Early this morning, while many folks busily prepare for the day, the Capricorn Moon squares unpredictable Uranus and then begins a lengthy void of course period. Stresses soon ease but commuters are advised to give themselves extra time getting to work. An accident or equipment failure could trigger a delay. Don't start anything new this Friday. Fulfill routine job requirements and tie up whatever loose ends you can. Resist the temptation to extend yourself financially or make a risky career move. Venus' late morning entry into passionate Leo and an energizing evening sextile between Mars and Jupiter keep moods playful and spirited, and hopes high. Enjoy the camaraderie of co-workers and friends, or the prospects of a weekend travel adventure, but stay firmly in the present moment.
Moon in Capricorn v/c 6:54AM-12:00AM, Venus enters Leo, Mars sextile Jupiter.
June 6: This morning is a good time to connect with those folks you've been meaning to contact, or get going on your "to do" list. Don't put things off. The Aquarius Moon is in a supportive angle with retrograde Mercury so it's a very favorable time to deal with anything that has been lingering or has roots in the past. It's also an opportune time to finish paper work. Along with this nod to the past, the future may also be beckoning. Aquarius is the sign most connected with planning. A network of capable friends makes reaching goals far more likely. Cultivate good relations this weekend. Be sociable. A pending aspect between the Sun and Jupiter can open hearts and minds in glorious ways.
Moon in Capricorn v/c 12:00AM-1:02AM Moon enters Aquarius, Venus trine Saturn.
June 7: The early morning hours are active. Early risers feel energetic, excited and eager to take on the world. Lunar trends lend themselves to an engaging atmosphere. There's a genuinely friendly vibe. Things quiet down considerably before noon. A void of course Aquarius Moon period that continues into tomorrow morning has begun. Informal gatherings, lazy beach outings, back yard barbecues and other low key spur of the moment get togethers are a good match with the Cosmic trends. Attempt no heavy lifting, make no major purchases and put off important decisions the second half of the day. Keep life simple, unstructured and enjoyable.
Moon in Aquarius /vc 10:30AM-12:00AM.
June 8: The new work week begins with a bit of early morning trepidation. Besides being in square with Saturn and retrograde Mercury, the Pisces Moon is also conjunct confusing Neptune. All of us must contend with this tricky T-square configuration. Boundary lines are blurred, making it tough to decipher messages, see true intentions or understand who is responsible for what. Do what you can to minimize mistakes and confusion. Rather than get bogged down with worries and doubts, follow the simple sage advice of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, "Choose to be optimistic. It feels better." Upbeat friends can serve as good reminders. Positive thinking never hurts.
Moon in Aquarius v/c 12:00AM-4:16AM Moon enters Pisces, Sun sextile Jupiter.
June 9: Those who are awake before dawn's light feel well-prepared to meet the new day. However, things take a different tack by late morning. As the Pisces Moon reaches the last quarter phase, testing the Gemini Sun, many folks experience an anxious moment or two. Mental and emotional gymnastics are most intense from late morning through the early afternoon hours. That's because the Moon is also in square with fiery Mars, which is conjunct the Sun. It may seem as if nothing is going right, or that progress is not coming soon enough. Don't get hot under the collar. Take a breath. This too shall pass. By late afternoon calmer trends move in as the Moon goes void of course. Spend the rest of the day lazily chilling out.
Moon in Pisces, Last Quarter Moon in Pisces 2:08PM, Moon in Pisces v/c 2:08PM-12:00AM, Mars sextile Uranus.
June 10: After weeks of second thoughts and uncertainty, the fog is beginning to lift. The early morning entry of the Moon into fiery Aries launches a time of more determined action. Mental Mercury has again stationed in Gemini and will resume forward motion tomorrow. The Winged Messenger's morning sextile to Venus bodes well for new ventures, even if the details are not yet finalized. A dandy string of stellar alignments follows. Physical rejuvenation, mental stimulation and friendly encounters occur throughout the day. Follow your passion. Impulse and intuition are complimentary. Embrace new and different kinds of challenges. Stretch your limits. Expand your social circles. Technology proves to be a versatile tool and an incredibly useful asset.
Moon in Pisces v/c 12:00AM-7:14AM Moon enters Aries, Mercury sextile Venus, Sun sextile Uranus.
June 11: Mercury's return to forward motion is today's big news but the Aries Moon is also quite busy. A lunar square to Pluto stresses nerves early this morning and could prompt some abrasive outbursts. More upbeat influences are in play later, giving rise to a daring, freedom-loving spirit. Thanks to favorable lunar aspects with Jupiter and Mars there's plenty of good foresight as well as energy for embarking on a personal quest. Spiritual and humanitarian pursuits are favored. By early evening winged Mercury is again moving Direct in Gemini, bolstering ambitions via clearer thinking and easier communications. A void of course Moon period produces a restful atmosphere tonight. Pay attention to your dreams.
Moon in Aries v/c 7:43PM-12:00AM, Mercury Direct.
June 12: Neptune turns retrograde shortly before dawn. The mystery planet's direction shift may prompt provocative dreams, heightened spiritual awareness and self-sacrificing idealism. With the Moon traveling void of course, consciousness is more elastic and permeable than usual. Take notice of premonitions and gut feelings. By late morning the Moon is in Taurus. Steady if unspectacular progress can be made. As we are late in the lunar cycle, in the middle of several planetary sign and direction changes, and mental Mercury, just out of retrograde is at odds with Neptune, a wait and see approach is recommended. Hold off on most moves and decisions until next Tuesday's New Moon.
Moon in Aries v/c 12:00AM-10:16AM Moon enters Taurus, Neptune Retrograde.
June 13: A relaxing morning can be a life saver. The Taurus Moon forms a late morning trine with Pluto, the planet of rebirth, recycling and transformation. Home improvement projects feel satisfying. Shoppers, especially those who enjoy a good deal, revel in hunting store aisles and tag sales. More reflective souls relish sharing intimate, thoughtful moments with close confidantes. Perceptions are wise and on point. Be out and about and on the move during the afternoon. This is a favorable time for socializing. The Moon is void of course in the early evening and the twilight hours feel mellow. Savor the simple pleasures of good friendship, tasty food and beautiful music.
Moon in Taurus v/c 6:06PM-12:00AM.
June 14: The Gemini Sun joins forces today with fiery, impetuous Mars. There is usually irrepressible energy and enthusiasm with this pairing. However, the waning Moon is void of course until just after noon when, newly arrived in Gemini, she opposes Saturn. A roadblock could suddenly appear, but it's wise to slow down anyway. This evening ringed Saturn retrogrades back into Scorpio and remains there for the summer. An unresolved issue that has been on the back burner since December could resurface. Financial matters and partnership arrangements are subject to renewed scrutiny during the coming months. It may be time to opt out of an unprofitable or uncomfortable commitment. There's lots to think about tonight. Take your time and consider all the angles.
Moon in Taurus v/c 12:00AM-1:51PM Moon enters Gemini, Sun conjunct Mars, Saturn enters Scorpio.
June 15: Lunar aspects to Venus and Neptune launch the day. Some folks are lethargic while others overcome inertia with spiritually attuned insight and deep, loving compassion. The waning Gemini Moon is at the end of her monthly cycle, marking a time of completion. Otherwise, the day is a pleasant one, dominated by tonight's lunar sextile to Jupiter. This aspect encourages spirited fun and the appreciation of life's finer amusements. Inspiration strikes. Creative projects progress nicely. Talking with good buddies is a treat. A nighttime development may prove to be an enlightening epiphany. Draw your own conclusions.
Moon in Gemini.
June 16: Early birds approach the day with gusto. This morning's New Moon in Gemini heralds the start of a fresh activity cycle. Set your intentions for the coming days. Fiery Mars joins in the monthly union of the Sun and Moon. The energetic grouping is an emphatic "go" signal from on high but be wary of false starts. This particular New Moon also marks the beginning of a lengthy void of course Moon period. From late morning until evening the Moon wanders without engaging any other planets. As a result, staying focused and attentive can be difficult. Free form improvisation on the other hand, is easy. If possible, let your mind wander. Head home tonight as the Moon arrives in Cancer and nesting instincts grow stronger.
New Moon in Gemini 10:16AM, Moon in Gemini v/c 10:16AM-6:51PM Moon enters Cancer.
June 17: Today features two different chapters. Chapter one sees the Cancer Moon forming a mellow and softly engaging trine with Neptune. There'll be many sentiments of caring, sympathy and empathy expressed. Throughout the morning love leans towards unconditional acceptance. The sweet vibrations peak during the early afternoon after which the Moon heads into an opposition with Pluto. This latter part of the day is its chapter two. Emotional volatility can quickly make generous, tolerant and forgiving moods things of the past. Some folks feel thin-skinned, others sulk under the pain of imagined rejection or criticism. If the atmosphere gets too close or angst is hard to take, come up for air. Seek a different point of view. Judgments are more likely a projection of subconscious fears, rather than reality based. Go within and practice self-love. See where love can take you!
Moon in Cancer.
June 18: Early this morning the Cancer Moon is at odds with unpredictable Uranus. The Moon in the Sign of the Crab likes nothing better than a safe bet, physical and emotional security being tops. Eccentrically visionary, rebellious, and all about evolutionary change, Uranus offers little to no security in the traditional sense. The resulting stresses could lead to a confrontation or perhaps an accident, especially if your mood doesn't jibe with your chosen responsibilities. Pay attention if you're driving or working on a computer. Control impulses. A sudden false move could lead to a loss. Life gets easier as morning gives way to afternoon. By then the Moon is harmonizing with Saturn. Maturity, discipline and commitments come more effortlessly. Make long range plans tonight.
Moon in Cancer.
June 19: We're in the middle of a quiet astrological spell when thankfully, good things are happening. The Moon enters fun-loving Leo during the wee hours of the morning. Here she forms an engaging and uplifting sextile with Mercury. Instinct works seamlessly with intellect. Moods are relaxed. Mental agility increases. Information is processed quickly and easily. If you've been meaning to have a conversation with a friend or an associate, today is an auspicious time. Words accurately express feelings and most of us are feeling good, especially tonight as the Moon makes her way closer to loving Venus. After sunset look up into the western sky and you'll see the encouraging trio of the Moon, Venus and Jupiter. Find someone or something to celebrate. Tip your hat, raise a glass and feel the joy.
Moon in Cancer v/c 1:52AM-2:23AM Moon enters Leo.
June 20: Sparked by a giddy Leo stellium, a grouping of the Moon, Venus and Jupiter, rollicking good times continue for many folks. Pensive minds may note the passing of another spring, the Sun having reached the final degree of Gemini, but today's dominant focus is on enjoying life. Lunar conjunctions with Venus in the morning and Jupiter this afternoon encourage everyone to indulge in one pleasurable pursuit after another. Hobbies, games, sporting events as either a participant or spectator, shopping, travel and learning are all favored. The cheerful celestial trio is nicely aligned with Uranus, boosting today's social potential. Share the fun with new or old friends, the more the merrier.
Moon in Leo.
June 21: All hail, the glorious, Sun! Today is Summer Solstice. In the Northern Hemisphere this day contains the most hours of life-giving light. Just after noon the Sun enters Cancer and the new season officially begins. Breathe in the fullness. Bask in the glow. This is Father's Day, too. In astrology the Sun is thought of as a masculine archetype, sometimes literally representing the earthly patriarchs What an appropriate time to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions fathers make. The Moon is also busy, shifting from Leo to Virgo during the noon hour. An early afternoon lunar square with Saturn urges respect be given to fathers as well as other mentors while a promising sextile between the Sun and Moon bodes well for today's gatherings and the new season.
Moon in Leo v/c 12:09PM-12:59PM Moon enters Virgo, Sun enters Cancer 12:38PM EDT, Summer Solstice.
June 22: An absolutely fabulous trine between Jupiter and Uranus is a harbinger of scientific breakthroughs, revolutionary thinking and great adventures. With Jupiter in regal Leo and Uranus in trailblazing Aries, this alignment raises passions, instills wonder and quickens heartbeats. The world seems full of incredible possibilities. Translating a liberating moment of enlightenment into something enduring could require a suspension of belief and leap of faith. With the Virgo Moon testing Mercury and Neptune this morning, don't even try to explain or figure out all the angles. Just proceed where your energy and excitement lead you. Ironing out details and coordinating plans with partners is more easily done after noon.
Moon in Virgo, Jupiter trine Uranus.
June 23: The Moon continues her orbit through Virgo, fostering quiet diligence and discriminating tastes. Don't rush. Hurrying can only have a negative impact on the quality of one's work. The best of nearly everything requires an investment of time as well as talent. Mental Mercury's afternoon square with Neptune tempts some folks to look for shortcuts and easy solutions. This testing aspect may befuddle some minds so pay close attention to messages and possessions, especially communication devices. A misunderstanding or lost phone will certainly deflate altruistic dreams. More realistic thinking makes priorities clearer later in the day but astrological trends are mixed. Implementing plans will continue to require patience and perseverance.
Moon in Virgo, Mercury square Neptune.
June 24: The restless early morning hours are a prelude to the tense First Quarter phase of the Moon. Mars' late-morning arrival in emotionally sensitive Cancer sees the Red Planet team up with the Sun. Protective instincts take on new urgency. The mythic God of War in the Sign of the Crab gives moms a militant edge. Stylistic differences can be tough to resolve. However, the Moon is passing by her own North Node in Libra. Creating a peaceful family as well as beautiful home are worthy goals. Crabs walk sideways, so any forward movement may not be immediately apparent. Progress is more easily measured tonight as the Moon finds harmony with mental Mercury. Relationships are more agreeable then, too.
Moon in Virgo v/c 1:12AM-1:41AM Moon enters Libra, First Quarter Moon in Libra 7:02AM, Mars enters Cancer.
June 25: Today's Libra Moon faces her challenges, reviving the still lingering, disruptive square between Pluto and Uranus. Early morning unease is due to a lunar square with Pluto. Be quick to compromise with a partner or turn the other cheek if it helps keep relations on an even keel. Fortunately, the Moon is also advantageously aligned with Venus and Jupiter in Leo, astrology's two prospering planets. The cheerful twosome enable and empower peacemakers as well as creative types. Generosity of spirit, kindness and encouragement provide the most wonderful feelings of satisfaction. These same forgiving qualities also help offset the possible shock of an unplanned schedule change this afternoon. Keep your options open and a smile on your face. Tonight is more relaxed.
Moon in Libra v/c 7:22PM-12:00AM.
June 26: The morning hours, with a void of course Libra Moon, move slowly. Thoughts may be difficult to control and focus hard to maintain. Subconscious co-dependent tendencies can surface but, as often happens under during a the void of course Moon period, physical initiative wavers. Events lack staying power. During the early afternoon an energizing change occurs. The Moon reaches Scorpio where she forms angles of compatibility with Mars and the Sun in Cancer. This latter part of the day feels very different. Energy, emotional strength and a sense of balance return. Ambitions revive, if only to get away to a park or the seashore and feel refreshed or draw closer to friends and other loved ones. We are in touch with our deepest instincts and needs tonight, and ably supported by partners.
Moon in Libra v/c 12:00AM-1:57PM Moon enters Scorpio.
June 27: Scorpio Moon days can see a good many folks turn inward, reflecting on their own emotions. This is the sign of life's death and rebirth cycles. Empowering moments as well as old grudges may be noted. However painful, memories have to fade through forgiveness and letting go in order to truly put them in the past and open up to receive new experiences. In today's planetary tapestry, the Moon aligns with Neptune and Pluto, two planets that aid in transformational processes. Hobbies and creative outlets, Mother Nature, as well as selfless acts of service are catalysts for emotional and spiritual growth this morning. After noon Pluto challenges us to put reputation, wealth, and heart into facilitating deeper intimacy and trust, first with ourselves and then with our partners. Love in moderation conquers all tonight.
Moon in Scorpio.
June 28: Early birds may note expansive, perhaps restless urges. A day trip or other outing is one way to honor these longings. Another option is taking a journey of the mind. Catch up on reading. Check out what's happening in the world, on line, or by perusing a current magazine. Stimulating companions are yet another way of nurturing a wider world view During the afternoon the waxing Moon draws closer to dour Saturn, now slowly retrograding at the last degree of Scorpio. Renegotiate a financial agreement or try to resolve a partnership issue that may have first arisen last fall. Friends and colleagues offer refreshingly different perspectives. With Venus fast approaching a trine to Uranus, love at first sight stories will make the rounds.
Moon in Scorpio v/c 9:50PM-11:21PM Moon enters Sagittarius.
June 29: During the night loving Venus forms an exact trine with Uranus, the planet of surprises, epiphanies and liberation. If you dreamed of the winning lottery numbers, or imagined meeting the perfect man or woman, or some other happy event, carry the thrill with you into the new day. There is magic in those memories! The waxing Moon is in adventure loving Sagittarius. A world of high hopes and golden possibility awaits. The only trouble on the horizon is a late afternoon lunar square with Neptune. Explorers can lose their bearings. Intrepid individuals may gloss over the weaknesses and worries of others, leaving sensitive souls adrift, searching for understanding and empathy. Double-check your bearings, then forge ahead but be sure to offer reassuring words of encouragement to less confident companions.
Moon in Sagittarius, Venus trine Uranus.
June 30: The waxing Moon in Sagittarius stands unflinching, part of a highly auspicious fire sign Grand Trine, along with Uranus in Aries and Venus and Jupiter in Leo. Wonderful, magical currents are sweeping the Earth. The Cancer Sun is nearing an exact trine with mystical Neptune. A combination of spiritual connection, accurate intuition, and plainly spoken truth telling is delightfully infectious and empowering. Friendships blossom. Networking is favored. Minds embrace new and in many cases revolutionary ways of thinking. Just be sure to hold important meetings and make key decisions before mid-afternoon when the Moon makes a final trine with Jupiter. She then travels void of course until daybreak tomorrow. With Full Moon Fever again on the rise, it's best to relax, have fun and be sociable during the latter part of the day.
Moon in Sagittarius v/c 2:18PM-12:00AM.
