In the Stars for June
We are now halfway through this year of 2019. The transiting Sun is in the air sign Gemini and will shift into Cancer June 21. This intellectual witty air sign can lift us up and puts us in a lighter mood, more social and communications get a boost of energy this month.
Gemini people are versatile, knowledgeable and witty. They enjoy many friends, and ideas to share with others. They are always looking for a new way to see things; therefore they can be good writers, fluent speakers, promoters and artists. Mercury their ruler helps them to see the many facets of things. They rely on logic and can be both logical and skeptical until they are satisfied with the facts. They are great at seeing energy patterns, are good system analysts as they can have a broad range of interests. Loving and friendly to all, yet sometimes they remain on the surface, some may seem nervous, superficial and inconsistent with their plans or projects. Most are non-conformists who resist cumbersome regulations that constrain their individuality. Like planet Mercury, Gemini is quicksilver which has no shape of its own and can just flow through your fingers and so does elusive Gemini. They remain curious, intellectual and carefree. Happy Birthday, Gemini. Neptune in Pisces squares your Sun this year others born later in the month they will feel it in a few years. Neptune is lending subtle energies, some folks may feel lost in a sea of illusions, this can sap the vitality, a tendency towards being a dreamer, or escapist tendencies are noticed when the square is in effect. The urge is to grow spirituality other realms other possibilities.
Planetary Transits for June
The Outer Planets
Larger changes are underway as Uranus breaks up forms of security as it moves through Taurus for the next 5 years. Uranus in Taurus affects Taurus Sun signs helping them to shift, change and evolve. So expect the unexpected, yet trust that all works out and go with the flow.
Also, Saturn and Pluto both in Capricorn conjoin to bring in more tension we may feel around security systems like money and systems that govern us to ensure those securities, protection and the new governments that may be established during this 2 year as these two planets conjoin their forces. This aspect affects most Capricorn Sun Signs.
Expect more uncertainty as we look for a higher purpose in life or a cause to pursue as Neptune moves through Pisces. Look at your chart where ever that planet is in your chart it may point the way towards more impressions, creativity, and faith or you may feel lost confused and unclear about your purposes, a good time to do creative things and go with the flow, especially for Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces Sun signs. Neptune goes retrograde June 22nd; this transit further strengthens the energy for those on spiritual pursuits.
Jupiter planet of growth and expansion, in Sagittarius, helps its own sign Sagittarius Sun signs natives be more confident and urges Sag. to expand and grow. Jupiter promotes in wisdom, increases wealth, learning and knowledge. For those whose sun signs are Sagittarius, Leo, and Aries can expect a positive boost to their confidence and for some help with growth and expansion this year. These outer planets can affect us all in numerous ways, yet generally, we can see many new developments within the collective movement of consciousness as we ask for the change to come.

Mars in Cancer makes for sluggish, indecisive energy to our strategies our decisions or actions can as Mars in Cancer is in its fall, we may feel insecure this month.
