The Astrological Edge for June

This month starts out with confusion arising from a clash between our ideals and what we see unfolding around us. June should, however, end on a happy social note, as our desire to enjoy life and important relationships will begin to take center stage.

Though no longer exact and separating, the square between Uranus and Pluto continues. Because Uranus is direct and Pluto is retrograde, the former planet will have more power. Globally, then, there can be a backlash against governments or authority figures that have a track record of abusing their power, while on a personal level we will feel the urge to honor commitments we have made to ourselves. Retrograde Pluto encourages us to release limiting fears and habits that have been keeping us from taking charge of our lives.

Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth, has been retrograde since April 16 (and won’t resume direct motion again until September 25). For the duration of the retrograde, the volatility of the Uranus-Pluto square will be tempered by the realization that we need to address our past before charging forward into our future. Globally, we will have more patience to reflect on the root cause of problems. The abuse of power within government, religious groups, and corporations, especially, will come up for scrutiny.

News stories about events that have been hidden from the public eye could emerge now. On a personal level, we will be looking at those areas of our lives where we have relinquished personal power. This is a good month to get a realistic picture of how our decisions have shaped our lives. At this juncture, we need to ask ourselves, “What behaviors do we need to release in order to feel more empowered?”

Every month on the day of the NEW MOON, the energy in the atmosphere opens to receive new seeds. For centuries, farmers have used New Moon cycles for planting their crops. We can use this same potent energy for stating our dreams and goals. To use a New Moon POWER DAY, simply write down, by hand, a maximum of ten wishes or goals you would like to manifest in your life.

Because this month’s New Moon occurs in GEMINI, you may want to include wishes on your list concerning the following categories, which are especially related to that sign: writing, speaking, mental rapport, understanding different points of view, debate, sales, social skills, tact, acceptance, lighthearted approaches.

Sample wishes:
“I want to easily find myself asking the right questions that lead to me understanding how other people think”
