June 2018 Astrology Forecast

The day-by-day astrology forecast for June 2018

June 1: We hit an astrological bonanza today, a mother lode of good fortune. First, the way is made clear by mental Mercury’s mid-morning trine to Mars. The energizing angle clears heads and stimulates lively discussions. It also speeds travelers on their way. Emotional certainty is boosted by a water sign Grand Trine configuration. Gracious Venus is in trine to Jupiter and Neptune. Follow the mysterious, wonderful ways of your heart, listen to better angels and be led to happiness. The Capricorn Moon is a complimentary agent, supporting those who nurture and encourage less fortunate souls. The spiritually uplifting atmosphere lasts deep into the night. The late hours are a great time to contemplate the stars above, dream and receive messages from beyond.

June 2: The delicate mood of a pre-dawn reverie can linger long past rising. To begin the day the Capricorn Moon is void of course. It stays that way until evening, suggesting this is a good day to get caught up with chores and other mundane tasks. Enthusiasm may waver and concentration may fade from time to time but with persistence, progress can be made. Put off major decisions and purchases until more auspicious trends arrive later in the day. Evening sees the Moon enter Aquarius, increasing social inclinations. Previous plans may abruptly change but with the Moon nearing Mars and her own South Node, other friends are likely to come calling. Be ready to improvise. If one door closes, open another.

June 3: The socially astute Moon in Aquarius harmonizes with the chatty Sun and Mercury, conjoined in Gemini. Review messages and respond promptly to important ones. Catch up on paper work. Pick up the phone and ring an old friend. It may be fun to take a lazy Sunday drive. Homebodies could be inclined to throw a party. Keep it casual. Have the neighbors and other pals over for an impromptu barbecue or beverage. The social atmosphere is engaging and vibrant, especially this afternoon and evening. Don’t overdo it later tonight. Avoid the temptation to eat, drink or say too much. Many secrets are best kept under wraps, though some are revealed accidentally.

June 4: This may not be a truly “blue” Monday but with the Aquarius Moon floating void of course, feelings can be ambiguous. The motivation to get back to work could be more wishful thinking than reality. Take your time getting up to speed this morning. Stick to usual routines, chores and responsibilities. Defer critical decisions, meetings and purchases for another time. However, it’s fine to exercise creative muscles. Brainstorm with pals, put your networking and visualizing abilities to good use. Kick around ideas and strategies. Much is unclear this week as both the Sun and Mercury test Neptune. Fascinating concepts and possibilities may emerge from out of the fog. Mull them over, but you’ll have to wait until late in the week to reach more definitive conclusions.
Moon in Aquarius v/c 1:10AM-12:00AM.

June 5: Early this morning the Pisces Moon and Uranus bestow awareness of things to come. In contrast, past experience and tried and true values provide steady guidance throughout the day. Mundane responsibilities command respect and deserve complete attention. Mercury is conjunct the Sun in Gemini. Overactive minds are prone to racing from one interest to another. Trust your instincts and hunches. Nighttime conversations may be revealing. Venus is in a standoff with Pluto. Partnerships forged in the spirit of cooperation and service to higher ideals shine brilliantly. Other less fortunate relationships suffer from jealousy and/or control issues. Remain calm, be kind and resolute in coming up with win-win solutions.

June 6: One challenge after another is faced and resolved. Keep your faith even under the most trying circumstances. A late-morning square between Mercury and Neptune can be a harbinger of a loss, mix-up or bad weather. An ensuing midday lunar trine to Jupiter for a while clears the air of confusion as well as storm clouds. By early afternoon the stresses of the Last Quarter Moon in Pisces increase uncertainties. The Moon is conjunct nebulous Neptune and both stars are at odds with the Sun and Mercury. Confidence may be lacking. Facts could come to light late tonight and allay some fears but the risks of a misunderstanding or costly mistake remain high. Be extra careful if you are traveling or tackling mentally demanding tasks.

June 7: The overnight period tantalizes restless dreamers and romantics but well before daybreak the Pisces Moon is orbiting void of course. As a result a quiet, introverted spell dominates the early morning as well as business hours. Plan accordingly. Stick to previous arrangements and handle routine obligations. Avoid beginning anything new or making important decisions and major investments. Everything feels low key and unhurried until evening when the Moon enters the energizing sign of Aries. It’s a good night to look up old friends, mingle with like-minded pals and schedule a strategic planning session.
Moon in Pisces v/c 2:35AM-5:26PM Moon enters Aries, Sun square Neptune.

June 8: Mixed celestial messages add confusion, potential delays and anxieties to the early hours of the morning. The Aries Moon is ably supporting go-go Mars yet simultaneously at odds with Saturn, the planet of obstacles. Plan your day. Pacing and just the right touch on the gas pedal are musts. By mid-morning the Moon is free of the conflicting energies and better able to support independent thinking and action. Still, it is best to seek input from partners. Take their words to heart. Timely advice can save a lot of energy and money. Tonight’s atmospherics are more than suitable for social get togethers. Harmony between the Moon and Gemini Sun puts folks at ease and helps sustain lively, cheerful ties.

June 9: The weekend arrives under an Aries Moon. An early morning lunar square to Pluto sees many folks dealing with chores. Some may resist doing the inevitable cleaning, gardening, mowing, and assorted errands but the sooner duties are dispensed with, the sooner one can have fun. Moods are noticeably brighter as noontime approaches. Early afternoon socializing and other excursions are pleasant affairs. Kick back and go with the flow as the Moon begins a void of course sojourn during the mid-afternoon. Even void of course, this Moon entices many souls to explore uncharted territory and try new things. The Moon is approaching a post-midnight conjunction with Uranus. Spend time with irreverent eccentrics, resident geniuses and masters of irony.
Moon in Aries v/c 3:37PM-12:00AM.

June 10: The waning Moon sails through Taurus. Here she promotes being physically comfortable and enjoying rich, earthly delights. A noon hour lunar trine with Saturn is a great omen for taking care of practical matters. Run an errand. Repay a debt or send a thank you note. Make a parent, elder or mentor aware of your gratitude. Stick to social norms and work to create long term security. There could be a disagreement after lunch when the Moon makes a difficult square with Mars. Tempers can flare as simmering frustrations surface, or passive aggressive behavior may be noted. Turn the focus to more hopeful topics, silver linings and the counting of blessings. Good fortune and high hopes are more apparent as the hour grows late.
Moon in Aries v/c 12:00AM-12:04AM Moon enters Taurus.

June 11: While the morning may not feel exuberant, determination is strong. The slow but steady pace of the Taurus Moon is reinforced via a gritty late morning trine with Pluto. Make demanding tasks your first order of business. Complex negotiations, effective partnering and personal growth work are all facilitated. Satisfaction is immediate. Increased self-knowledge as well as financial gains are likely. If you feel like celebrating, a late night lunar trine to Venus gives rise to a party-like atmosphere. Under these stars it won’t take much to induce a night of pleasure-seeking. Enjoy loved ones, favorite foods and other creature comforts.
Moon in Taurus v/c 11:29PM-12:00AM.

June 12: Changes are imminent. We are nearing the end of the monthly lunar cycle. Mercury leaves Gemini and transits into Cancer during the late afternoon. The Winged Messenger’s shift of signs can generate indecision and confusion. Check your bearings and know where you want to go. The balsamic Gemini Moon trines Mars at precisely the same moment Mercury enters the Sign of the Crab. A notable change of heart could occur. If so, share the news with co-workers. Bear in mind that the current lunar phase supports completing projects rather than starting them. After the lunar trine to Mars, energy levels are at a low, especially tonight. It’s normal to feel tired. Catch up on rest with the intention of getting a fresh start with tomorrow’s New Moon.
Moon in Taurus v/c 12:00Am-2:53AM Moon enters Gemini, Mercury enters Cancer.

June 13: Mercury’s morning sextile to Uranus points the way towards more hopeful times. Pay attention to inner guidance and psychic impressions. Optimism is subtly reinforced by this afternoon’s New Moon in Gemini. Don’t underestimate the power of positive thinking. Each thought is a seed idea. Plant them carefully as the new activity cycle begins. However, as soon as the Moon is new she begins a void of course period that lasts past midnight. The final third of the day is mellow. Venus’ early evening arrival in Leo gently sparks the young at heart. Enjoy friendly sparring with playful companions tonight but leave the heavy lifting for another day and time.

June 14: With the Moon ensconced in her own sign of Cancer, loyalties are strong and feelings keen. This morning’s lunar conjunction with Mercury suggests that logic may easily be overwhelmed by emotional sentiments. Trust the innate intelligence of your instinctive responses. If it feels right, it is. As the Moon nears a limiting early afternoon opposition with Saturn review rules, set boundaries, or just say no. Feathers may be ruffled because Venus is also in a testing angle with unpredictable Uranus. Friends could need a timeout, or even be ready to say goodbye. Kiss and make up as clocks strike midnight.
Moon in Gemini v/c 12:00AM-3:20AM Moon enters Cancer, Venus square Uranus.

June 15: Use the productive morning hours to full advantage. Some folks, gripped by competitive urges, gamely pursue ambitions. Others become more sensitive to partners. The Cancer Moon faces off with Pluto shortly after noon. Their opposition can be divisive or unifying. Cooperation rather than competition is the more fruitful option. After noon the Moon floats void of course. The morning’s passionate intensity gradually fades. Tonight’s opposition between Mercury and Saturn can spotlight doubts and regrets. On the other hand, a renewed commitment to define and overcome challenges may be made. Relax and be content with familiar faces, places, and rituals. 
Moon in Cancer v/c 12:18PM-12:00AM, Mercury opposite Saturn.

June 16: The Leo Moon, now a waxing crescent, promotes heartfelt expressions. The Moon is conjunct Venus and her own North Node. Creative and romantic passions are high. Put your talents to use. Joy and play are the pathway going forward. Reclaim your innocence. Open your imagination and be spontaneous. Put pride in your work, hobbies and other activities. A late afternoon lunar opposition with Mars fires up enthusiasm. Shared experiences are more fun! Get together with friends, co-workers or neighbors for a pleasant night of partying under the stars but if you’re a night owl, don’t overdo it.
Moon in Cancer v/c 12:00AM- 3:21AM Moon enters Leo.

June 17: A tip of the hat to all the dedicated Dads out there this Father’s Day! Love, peace and harmony have the upper hand. The Leo Moon and Gemini Sun are in an agreeable sextile alignment. Moods are upbeat and chatty. Social gatherings and celebrations honoring you know who are effervescent. Sports enthusiasts relish the competition. Because Venus is approaching an opposition to Mars, affections are passionately felt and friendships more thoroughly enjoyed. Spring will soon pass so seize the moment. Live, play hard, laugh and love fully.
Moon in Leo v/c 11:25PM-12:00AM.

June 18: Today’s stars support those “scouts” among us who prepare for every possible contingency. A waxing Virgo Moon is favorably aspected to Uranus and Saturn, creating a super productive Grand Trine in the heavens. The pragmatic configuration enables and empowers progressive as well as conservative leaning souls. An early morning hunch is on the mark. Technology helps make quick work of tedious chores. The day settles into a steady, comfortable pace by late morning. Make decisions and commitments during the fruitful afternoon. With Saturn’s approval, agreements will be enduring. Tonight sees Neptune turn retrograde in Pisces. Stay abreast of news regarding water and food supplies.
Moon in Leo v/c 12:00AM-4:40AM Moon enters Virgo, Neptune Retrograde.

June 19: The Virgo Moon has an eye for endless details. However, this morning’s lunar opposition with Neptune can befuddle even the sharpest observers. Keep close tabs on valuable items. Double-check facts and figures. In sharp contrast, Mercury’s afternoon trine with Jupiter calls attention to the big picture. The uplifting angle urges minds to consider moral principles, ideals and other inspiring concepts. Wisdom from cultures around the world may be useful. Travel is also facilitated. Combined, attention to detail and moral integrity are a powerful force for good. Diligently apply your knowledge. The benefits to all concerned will be readily apparent, validating your good intentions and efforts.
Moon in Virgo, Mercury trine Jupiter.

June 20: The early going is rugged as the stresses of the First Quarter Virgo Moon gradually give way to a mellower void of course Moon period. Be careful not to forget important items as you ready for the day. By mid-morning the Moon is in Libra. Focus sharpens but a pending lunar square to Saturn makes much of the time feel like an uphill climb. Pace yourself. Proceed slowly and deliberately. Dogged determination leads to notable accomplishments. The stars align to support a night of celebrations and enjoyments. A lunar sextile to Venus is a gift to romantics and Mercury’s midnight trine with Neptune is perfection for movie-goers, artists and visionaries. Dream on!

June 21: Salute the Sun! Summer begins this morning with the Sun’s entry into Cancer. The Northern Hemisphere’s longest daylight hours illuminate hearts and minds but challenging planetary alignments require courteous, tactful behavior. The Libra Moon makes a T-square, triggering the opposition between Mercury and Pluto. Words can be injurious, feelings easily upset. Put yourself in the other person’s shoes before making judgment. If you don’t know, ask. Late afternoon and evening discussions can be gritty. Talk about deep-seated issues delicately. Genuine caring and concern disarm defense mechanisms. With the right tone and intention, heart to heart conversations can be revelatory and clear up misunderstandings. 
Moon in Libra v/c 9:34PM-12:00AM, Sun enters Cancer 6:07AM, Summer Solstice, Venus opposite Mars.

June 22: The day is off to a slow start as the Libra Moon travels void of course. Some folks are lethargic. Attention easily wanders so if you have something important to say, make sure you’re fully understood. The lackadaisical mood lingers into the mid-afternoon hours when the Moon touches down in Scorpio. The sign change signals an energizing rebirth. A lunar trine to the Cancer Sun sharpens awareness and homing instincts but a subsequent opposition to Uranus poses potential risks. Travel with care during the evening commute. Don’t argue. Plans may fall through but second options are likely to turn out better than originally expected.
Moon in Libra v/c 12:00AM-3:11PM Moon enters Scorpio.

June 23: From the wee hours of the morning until late tonight, the stars are busy. The Sun’s sextile to Uranus keeps night owls up late, thinking profundities and dreaming about the future. As dawn breaks mental Mercury is locked in an opposition with Pluto. Where there is a desire to make things happen, there is also a path to fulfillment. However, the Scorpio Moon makes testing angles with Mars and Venus during the morning and early afternoon. A partner’s support could require excellent bargaining skills. Judge by your results. If you’re not satisfied, try a different approach. Listen and learn. Regroup and try again. Hearts and minds are more likely to harmonize late this afternoon and tonight, when the Moon activates the potentially enlightening trine between Jupiter and Neptune.

June 24: Attending Sunday services, a family get together or meet up with like-minded friends can brighten the morning hours. Taking a drive is another good option. By late morning the waxing Scorpio Moon is void of course. Life slows, which is just fine for unhurried, meandering excursions or taking time out for inner introspection. As J.R.R. Tolkien aptly put it, “Not all who wander are lost.” Interesting discoveries and reconnections are waiting to be made. Perceptive souls enjoy both private time and sharing insights with partners. Be receptive to hunches, innate curiosity and heightened powers of observation. Relaxing quiet time makes the handwriting on the wall easier to read.
Moon in Scorpio v/c 10:00AM-12:00AM.

June 25: Venus, now making her way through the dramatic sign of Leo, is at odds with Jupiter today. Extravagance is one temptation. Appetites may be insatiable. Incredible acts of generosity are another likelihood. Whatever the attraction, avoid undermining your financial solvency or dignity. The Sagittarius Moon elevates moods and encourages hearty participation in all activities. Learning is favored. The bonds of friendship grow stronger with the Moon’s evening sextile to Mars in Aquarius. A sacrifice made in support of team or community spirit feels natural. Loving impulses grow stronger as midnight nears. Be creative in how you say it but let your significant other, children and pets know you care.
Moon in Scorpio v/c 12:00AM-12:29AM Moon enters Sagittarius, Venus square Jupiter.

June 26: The early morning is one of those times when intense feelings of affection may lead to confusion and bittersweet consequences. The Sagittarius Moon is engaged with both Venus and Neptune. Hearts can soar and ache simultaneously. By mid-morning the Moon is void of course and remains that way until well after midnight. This long void of course Moon period, coming less than two days before the waxing Moon is full, can be deceptive. Matters are complicated by Mars’ retrograde turn late this afternoon. Progress may seem to be at a halt. Some souls long to be free, but what is freedom? The best answer I’ve come across to this important question was from Swami Satchidananda, who said, “True freedom lies on the other side of commitment.” With the Sun about to oppose Saturn, choices must be made. 
Moon in Sagittarius v/c 8:54AM-12:00AM, Mars Retrograde 5:05PM.

June 27: The Sun opposes Saturn this morning as the nearly full Sagittarius Moon ambles void of course. Limitations are on many minds. Necessity dictates priorities and these essentials must be addressed. Successful partnering requires good communications, discipline and mutual respect. By noon the Moon is in Capricorn where she promptly forms a trine to inventive Uranus. Values are changing. With an eye on actual costs and benefits, there is clarity about who and what is supportive and beneficial. Reality can’t be denied, especially tonight when the Moon, just hours away from being full, conjuncts Saturn. Karmic bills come due. Where rules and sacred trusts have been broken, there is a price to pay.
Moon in Sagittarius v/c 12:00AM-11:52AM Moon enters Capricorn.

June 28: Less than an hour after midnight, the Moon in Capricorn, closely conjunct Saturn, is full. The bright moonlight keeps many folks awake until all hours of the night. If you have wrestled with a tough decision, a clear answer may at last be at hand. By morning the Moon is moving into a constructive sextile to Jupiter. Partners and power brokers are ready to make deals. Shared interests are easily identified and agreed upon. Two heads are better than one under the heavenly auspices but because Mercury stands at the last degree of Cancer, there may be second thoughts and last minute revisions. Don’t fret. Changes are likely to improve agreements. A soothing lunar sextile to Neptune caps off the busy day. Get off your feet and relax.
Full Moon in Capricorn 12:53AM.

June 29: Mercury’s post-midnight arrival in Leo fires up creative imaginations. If a bright idea appears as you’re drifting off to sleep, jot it down. It could be the seed of a transformative future enterprise. Shortly before dawn the Capricorn Moon conjuncts Pluto and then begins a void of course period that lasts until midnight. Friday and low key void of course Moon periods are a tough combination for those who have to work. On the other hand, people who are able to improvise and amble down paths of their choosing find the unfocused energy much to their liking. Put off new projects, costly purchases and investment decisions for another day. Brainstorming sessions can be useful, as long as action is taken at a future date. Stick to routines and make your night a mellow and relaxing one.
Moon in Capricorn v/c 4:57AM-12:00AM, Mercury enters Leo.

June 30: The Moon enters visionary Aquarius just after midnight. Here she joins forces with retrograding Mars and tests Mercury and Uranus. The resulting T-square configuration also involves the lunar Nodes. A veritable kitchen sink of unexpected events is likely to interrupt plans and one way or another, change thinking. Keep your mind open. Slow down. Breathe deeply. Welcome differences of opinion. Take in and learn about other points of view. Rushing to judgment may be tempting, but it isn’t wise. Information overload can lead tempers to flare this evening or set adventurous folks on an ambitious humanitarian mission. 
Moon in Capricorn v/c 12:00AM-12:37AM Moon enters Aquarius, Mercury square Uranus.
