ASTROLOGY FORECAST (June 16-22)
There is a rather rare alignment of the first five planets in our Solar system in the early morning sky the rest of this month, Mercury becoming more easily visible later in the month. (This omits the Earth since we are the observers.) Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are lined up in their natural order along a curved line, the ecliptic, from low on the eastern horizon stretching at an upward angle from the horizon toward the south. This was last visible in Dec 2004 and will not return again until 2040.
I have received a message to pass on to you concerning this alignment. (The energy feels like a friendly group personality.) The planetary alignment came into my mind's eye, and then almost immediately was present in my Heart Center along with this message:
"You have often yearned and attempted, consciously or unconsciously, to COME HOME while you live your Earthly existence. That is entirely understandable. We do, however, remind you of the one common mission each of you always hopes to accomplish every time you incarnate. That is to bring as much of your Soul self, and the greatest part of what you commonly think of as the Heavenly Realm, to Earth. How that looks for each of you is different, which is the absolute beauty, and richness of this Cosmic endeavor that you brave, wonderful souls volunteer for in each life. The vast array of individual experience is how each of you adds to the Akashic records.
We do love you so dearly! We know full well that when you are pushed to your limits, when the pressure of your amazing creativity builds, that you begin to yearn for "home." That is when a mantra of "Heaven on Earth" may assist in grounding all of your magnificence into your energy field and the planet, and to buffer the polarity in your 3rd dimension.
Do you see the exquisite richness of such a world? "Heaven on Earth" is a different experience for each of you, and to the extent that your version does no harm, you add glory to the lives of all others with your most heartfelt desires. Your JOY seeds the Universe.
The planets, stars, asteroids, and the regions of space they inhabit offer you the energies of your Archetypes. You concentrate on specific ones during each life, but as you advance along your path of Soul growth you are better able to activate the best expressions of many of them at once.
This month the planets offer you a lovely gift if you will accept it; The very best energies of all the personal planets, Mercury, Venus, and Mars, all in the signs they rule, along with the great good luck and abundant generosity of Jupiter. Finally, an invitation to overlight all of that with the guidance of a favorite teacher or mentor in the form of Saturn.
Take this love into your Heart Center if you wish.
We would have you remember, when you look toward the stars and the zodiacal regions of space, you are looking at a beautiful reflection of yourselves and your expanded Cosmic family, and you are embodying a greater portion of the LOVE of "All that is", and of YOU."
Consider this a parade in your honor. Open to receive a message from your Soul self, Angels, and Guide teams."
SIGN CHANGES THIS WEEK:
SUN into Cancer on the 21st - A feminine water sign. Home, Family, Loyalty, and Emotion are all important to this archetype. Cancer's ability to manage emotions and sensitivity is increasingly valuable now.
SUMMER SOLSTICE on June 21st - This would normally be the time of the year for action and building. In light of current conditions, rather than racing back into the old activities, perhaps, decide what holds real value to you now.
VENUS into Gemini on the 22nd - Friendship and widened social horizons are prominent with this placement, adding Venus' grace and beauty to all. You may find yourself more interested in a wide range of people and topics.
The planets have been in a close bowl formation for much of the last 7 months. It has offered a chance to experience several archetype energies. The Moon will be in conjunction with all of the planets over a 13 day span. Remember that conjunctions are the strongest aspects and are usually a beneficial blending of the energies of the planets involved. Starting on June 16th and going through the 29th the Moon will be conjunct with every planet. These will overlap, blending the effects a great deal. The order and predominant energies of each conjunction are:
6/16- Pluto - Intensity, Changes
6/18- Saturn - Hard work, Practically
6/20 - Neptune- Psychic, Arts, Prophesy
6/21 - Jupiter- Generosity, Trustworthiness
6/22 - Mars - Emotional tendency. Guard against anger.
6/24 - Uranus - Sudden developments, Psychic ability
6/26 - Venus - Cheerful, Optimistic, Talents in the Arts
6/27 - Mercury - Great mental energy and power.
6/29 - Sun - Mixed energies combining concentration and impulsiveness.
The visual effect of this will be quite interesting. The waning Moon will sweep backward along the line of the planets discussed above. Enjoy June's Planetary Parade of Honor!
The traditional attributes assigned to Zodiac sign Cancer are; love of home and family, protective of the same, and also of the self, quiet, private, nurturing feminine qualities, camouflaged, sensitive, and emotional.
Let's add to the above stated qualities in an expanded way by examining the qualities of the crab that is the symbol of this zodiac sign.
The crab has soft tissue surrounded by a hard, protective carapace. The archetype of Cancer is a potent ally in the times of rising feminine energy. It is available to you even if you have no planets in Cancer. The firm structural framework is ideal to contain the ever increasing memories of your full Soul capacity.
The Ascension is taking place ONE PERSON AT A TIME. It is a very personal experience. As that is the case, each of you may find the need to protect your newly expanded understanding of the self, your world, and your greater reality beyond the physical. The Cancer archetype is ideal for this purpose. You know what you know, but cannot "prove it" to anyone, particularly not to someone who is skeptical. Invoke the outer protective shielding if needed. Be quietly respectful of your memory and instinctual knowledge.
Furthermore, the crab has an interesting locomotive pattern, comfortable lateral movement. That is also useful in this time we find ourselves in. When we are living in the cusp years at the end of one age and the beginning of another, this may require a great deal of shuffling and adjustments. We will have times when the only way out is through, requiring forward movement. There may also be circumstances where going around impediments, be they strong cultural opinions, opposition from friends and family, or your own doubts and fears, is ultimately the best choice. In these circumstances lateral movement may become the wisest option. The Cancer crab can help you use your imagination to achieve this.
I mentioned Lilith energies in Cancer two weeks ago. The much maligned expression of the primordial, powerful feminine is overdue for a rebranding! She is guiding us in Cancer until early next year.
She is the perfect partner. Stand in your sovereignty, be assured that you have your piece of the puzzle and your place in the Ascension. Lilith reminds me of the statue, "Fearless Girl," standing firm and defiant, hands on hips. She is meant to stand for the global women's movement. The rise of the feminine principles into equality is essential to us all, male and female alike. Let Lilith help you guard your inner flame. That flame is your birthright. It is why you are here. Balance in all expressions, with rich emotion as a guiding light, is how we ascend. You cannot go into multidimensionality with the mind and intellect alone. The heart must come along as an equal partner. Invoke Lilith to help that reality ground into the Earth.
UPCOMING PLANETARY EVENTS:
NEPTUNE goes retrograde on the 29th, joining Saturn and Pluto. Neptune is a fantastical, psychic energy that aids your mind and imagination to dream and explore. If that happens to go too far, the retrograde motion helps you check your experiences. Are they still valid? Do they need further analysis?
NEW MOON on 28th in Cancer.
The star chart for this New Moon has some interesting features. The challenging parts first. There are 5 squares on this day. This creates potential obstacles for you. "Clean up on Aisle 1!" This is a day that may present you with some things you would like to see in the rearview mirror. So stay calm and take a look at whatever it is that may show up. The squares are:
SUN, MOON, URANUS are square Saturn - Obstacles, pessimism, and bullying behavior are all spotlighted.
MERCURY Square NEPTUNE
This aspect can interfere with Mercury's normal keen intellect and communication skills.
MARS Square JUPITER - This is a potential reckoning for warmongers, fanatics, and zealots who use violence as a solution. (This may be quite revealing considering current events.)
Fortunately, there are some TRINES to balance out the squares.
PLUTO trine the North Node of the Moon helps the planet's entire population use their inherent gifts and knowledge.
The more hopeful detail reveals itself in the overall shape of the planetary lineup. Look at the chalice shape when all the aspects are drawn in. The watery, feminine archetype will be aided with this imaginary container to hold all the best we can all create.
Have faith. Believe the growing light can help you find your Godspeed!
