When I sit down to write the Monthly Overview each month, faced with so much information my first thought is always ‘where do I start’? Usually the answer is fairly clear, any events that alter the dynamics of the year or shift things dramatically is the best place to start. Unfortunately this doesn’t help me this month, because almost everything is important in its own right or by association.
On paper the three main events, those that will change the dynamics of the year itself are the Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 3rd June, Venus’ return to Leo on the 6th June and Saturn retrograding out of Sagittarius and back to Scorpio on the 15th June. Yet I can’t explain the significance of the Full Moon, especially as it falls just 12 days before Saturn is due to retrograde back out of Sagittarius, without also making the pressure this has been putting on the planets in Gemini a priority and I can’t do that without factoring in their partnership with the North Node in Libra and Ceres in Aquarius. There is nothing happening this month, big or small that doesn’t have an influence somewhere else, so all I can do is go through each factor one at a time, with where it falls in the paragraphs below having no indication of how important it is. By that I mean that I am usually writing about the most important things first and then go progressively down in importance, so that those I mention at the bottom are usually in the ‘and also happening this month’ category. This month you can’t assume that, for it’s all important.
Starting first are the planets in Gemini, purely because the Sun will always spend the first 3 weeks of June in Gemini and that’s as good a place to start as any, especially as there are so many links into other areas.
Yes, the Sun moves through Gemini at this time of year, shining the solar spotlight on the Gemini ruled area of your chart, for example for Cancereans this is the closing weeks of your old solar year, so is a time for reflection, for Virgo the solar spotlight is on career matters, for Sagittarians the focus is on your relationships and for Taurus the focus is on income matters and so on, but this year it’s a lot more significant.
This is where similarities with other years begin and end, because for the first time in 28 years you have Saturn moving through Sagittarius, over on the other side of the sky and in opposition. This has been responsible for a series of Saturn oppositions over recent months with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars having already all moved into opposition. While there are no more planetary oppositions, when the Full Moon on the 3rd June falls in Sagittarius, it will once more bring tensions to a head, in what by then will be a familiar theme. Expect this Full Moon to be a doozy, for while we will always have a Full Moon in Sagittarius at some point during the Sun’s month long visit to Gemini at this time each year, it’s been 28 years since Saturn has been involved and especially with things likely to still be sensitive thanks to the oppositions over recent months.
Yet before you start feeling sorry for either Saturn in the Sagittarius ruled area of your chart or the Sun, Mercury and Mars in the Gemini ruled area of your chart, you need to know that both sides are extremely well supported and just how fortuitous those wakeup calls are likely to be.
However, the 3rd June opposition between the Sun and Moon (the Full Moon) really is the last and with Saturn retrograding back out of Sagittarius on the 15th June, but Mercury remaining in Gemini all month, the Sun until the 22nd June and Mars until the 25th June, there’ll be a lot less pressure and a lot more opportunities as the month progresses.
For Saturn this Full Moon, falling just 12 days before he’s due to retrograde back out, will act as a trigger for all that he’s been working towards and coming just 3 days before Venus’ return to Leo on the 6th June, this will be a timely push. For example, if you’re a Cancer, the Full Moon will fall in your work sector, just 12 days before Saturn is due to leave and just 3 days before Venus’ return to your income sector is due to unlock the door to a huge amount of untapped potential. If you’re a Gemini the Full Moon falls in your relationship sector just 3 days before Venus’ return to your communication sector. The Monthly Horoscopes will provide some details on where this will play out for you, but the Monthly Reports will provide a lot more detail.
This is also going to give matters in the Sagittarius ruled area of your chart a push just 12 days before Saturn is due to leave, allowing you to make his final days count. It’s not just Venus’ return to Leo that will provide Saturn with so much support, but with lucky Jupiter already there this is something that was already in place.
At the same time that Saturn is likely to have benefited from the pressure from the planets moving through Gemini and will benefit from the Full Moon on the 3rd June, the planets over in Gemini are also receiving a lot of support, namely from the North Node in Libra and Ceres in Aquarius. It’s Ceres’ retrograde turn on the 3rd June, just as the Full Moon is putting pressure on the Sun, Mercury and Mars in Gemini that reveals the support in play. With Mercury in retrograde motion in Gemini until the 12th June, while Ceres will spend the next 2 months in retrograde motion in Aquarius for 9 days she’ll be supporting Mercury in his final days in retrograde motion, holding the doors open to the past and second chances on both fronts, at the same time. As an example of what I mean by this, if you’re a Taurus the doors will be open to second chances on the income and career fronts at the same time, if you’re a Sagittarian they’ll be open to second chances on the communication and relationship fronts at the same time and if you’re a Virgo they’ll be open to second chances on the work and career fronts at the same time.
There is a theme to the solidarity and support that retrograding planets will play this month, with Neptune turning retrograde in Pisces on the 12th June, just 3 days before Saturn is due to retrograde back into Scorpio on the 15th June. If you’re a Cancerean this will hold the doors open to second chances on the romantic and adventurous fronts at the same time, a nice distraction from the busy start to the month.
The month will start with three planets in retrograde motion, Mercury in Gemini, Saturn first in Sagittarius and then in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn, but while Mercury will turn direct on the 12th June the number of planets in retrograde motion will increase throughout the month, starting with Ceres’ retrograde turn on the 3rd June, Neptune’s on the 12th June and Chiron’s retrograde turn on the 24th June.
Yet as much focus as this puts on the past there is just as much focus on new beginnings, with Mercury’s direct turn on the 12th June and a New Moon in Gemini on the 17th June not only giving matters there the go ahead, but celebrating the fact that with Saturn no longer in opposition things are likely to flow much more smoothly across the board.
Saturn will remain back in Scorpio until the 18th September and with Neptune and Chiron both turning retrograde in Pisces this month, the Sun returning to Cancer on the 22nd June and Mars on the 25th June, the middle months of 2015 will be dominated by this triad of support between the three Water signs. Again, the Monthly Horoscopes will provide some details on where this will play out for you, but the Monthly Reports will provide a lot more detail.
What is impossible to underestimate is the impact of Venus’ return to Leo on the 6th June, for this really is game changing. Lucky Jupiter has been in Leo since July 2014, but in retrograde motion from the 9th December 2014 to the 9th April 2015 he went into a review phase and for the last few months has been slowly gaining speed, but for the most part staying in the background, knowing that his final months here would be the most important. Jupiter is due to leave on the 11th August, with Venus’ return the trigger that Jupiter and forces building behind the scenes since as far back as last July have been waiting for. If this had been a typical visit from the planet of love, desire and attraction then this would still have been a major trigger, but it’s anything but a typical visit.
Normally here for as little as 24 days, Venus will return on the 6th June and therefore should be gone by the end of the month or the early days of July at the latest. However, she’ll not only stay, by the time she eventually leaves on the 19th July she’ll not only have been here for just over 6 weeks, but she’ll barely be moving at a crawl and on the 25th July, just 6 days after leaving will retrograde back for a double dip visit, this time from the 1st August to the 9th October. With Jupiter leaving on the 11th August, the Sun returning on the 23rd July, Mercury on the 24th July and Mars on the 9th August, she will become part of a mass coming together of forces that will make Jupiter’s final days count, but will also stay on to milk every possible advantage once he’s gone. Venus’ return on the 6th June is the start of an incredible association that Venus will have with Jupiter over the next 2 months and also in what will play out later. Jupiter’s final months in an area of your chart will always be the luckiest and most auspicious, but Venus is leaving no room for doubt.
The 6th June is the earliest in the year that Venus can return to Leo, something that will happen once every 8 years. Jupiter has a cycle of 12 years and once every 24 years their 8 and 12 year cycles become in synch, creating the situation we have this year, which is the two not only meeting up together in Leo, but for several months.
While you’ve had lucky Jupiter in the Leo ruled area of your chart since last July, for the most part and especially since last December he’s been working behind the scenes, slowly building potential and building towards a time when he had the support to bring things home and make things happen. Venus’ return to Leo on the 6th June is that trigger and if I had to put my finger on the one event that was truly game changing, then this is it. Again, the Monthly Horoscopes will provide some details on where this will play out for you, but the Monthly Reports will provide a lot more detail but also the Roadmap to 2016 Reports, available from the 1st July (I’m currently writing them) and which will come free with our annual Mid Year Personal Chart special, will speak in depth about what this will mean for you and where it will play out.
All the very best for the coming month.
