AstroForecast June 2006
All times Central Time Zone
The sign of the Twins, Gemini, launches the month of June for the annual solar journey in this mentally stimulating zodiac sign. The identification of the themes of communications, information, peer relationships, negotiability, bargaining, dialogue and versatility will be brought to the fore. Fraternal love is emphasized as Gemini psychologically symbolizes lateral relationships instead of the vertical parental relationships dynamic. Issues to be addressed will be superficiality, duplicity, lying, cheating, trickery, two-facedness, scatteredness, boredom and fraud. Psychological fragmentation due to mental splits or causes of mental splits can also be associated with the Twins. "People change, and forget to tell that to other people" Lillian Hellman. Gemini's guiding angel is Ambriel and June's angel is Muriel.
Thursday the 1st witnesses two celestial aspects with the first one being the opposition of Mercury with Pluto that can symbolize the definition and clarification period of these two planets. Mercury and Pluto were last conjunct one another last December 31, 2005; so these two dates can correspond to one another. Here is a brief quote from the December AstroForecast 2005 about their conjunction then and what is being defined and clarified now: "the annual conjunction of Mercury with Pluto can symbolize discussions that are intense yet can afford a sense of renewal, rebirthing and regeneration particularly for those individuals who want to rid themselves of any stagnation. This is an excellent aspect for research, investigations of any kind as well as overall sleuthing capabilities. Piercing and penetrating insights can be made that get to the core of any and all issues."
The second aspect for this Thursday is one of adjustment involving the Sun with Jupiter that symbolizes individuals in positions of power and authority adhering to principles and ethics or lack thereof. Some fathers can experience excesses, overboard tendencies and hypocritical behaviors.
Saturday the 3rd at 6:21am is the entrance of fleet-footed Mercury into the sign of Cancer. Mercury remains in Cancer for the following two weeks and strong emphasis will be placed on family dialogue, national discussions of security, agri-business concerns and real estate negotiations to mention a few. Moodiness and emotional neediness can cloud better discernment if allowed.
Saturday the 3rd at 1:43pm is the ingress of Mars into the fiery sign of Leo that launches a 45-day journey that will emphasize assertive and aggressive action to all Leonine themes/issues. Dictators, military top brass, executives, monarchs, and presidents are either stubborn or face stubborn issues/individuals during this Martial passage of the red planet in the sign of the lion. Honor and pride can become sources of skirmishes and saber rattling. Actions centered on generosity and magnanimity are positive themes that can be emphasized. Protection of children will become focused and hotly debated. "Man considers the actions, but God weighs the intentions" Thomas à Kempis.
This same Saturday is the monthly Apogee Moon (greatest distance from the Earth) that symbolizes the ability to cultivate objectivity and impartiality with emotions/feelings. Summer colds, infections and contagion especially involving the intestinal areas, the feet and the immune system can be highlighted.
In the US Sibly chart the Solar Arc Mercury is inharmonious to the birth ascendant of our nation's chart. Espionage, intelligence, research and investigations are focused. National credit, debt and loans are also important. Waterways, ports, harbors and bridges are also in the crosshairs.
Also this Saturday is the inharmonious contact of Jupiter to Pluto in President Bush's birth chart. The first contact occurred last December 12, 2005 and now due to Jupiter's retrograde motion it is happening again. The third and final passage will be next August 8, 2006; all three of these dates can correspond to one another. Foreign policy, international trade and treaties as well as the immigration question will be very sharpened with this aspect. Foreign intrigue and intelligence are heightened.
Sunday the 4th two inharmonious aspects occur with the first one involving Venus with Saturn that can symbolize women caught up with issues of devaluation/invalidation as well as heartlessness being perpetrated. Deservedness issues can arise especially surrounding expenditures for lavish indulgences.
Mercury is inharmonious to the Lunar Nodal Axis on this Sunday that can represent fate and destiny in association with actions, national security and justice. Sensitivities are stoked especially individuals that experience or perceive issues of rejection.

Issues could arise dealing with hoarding behaviors, sarcasm, compensatory behaviors associated with binges whether eating or spending, jealousy, possessiveness as well as manipulation.
Friday the 9th is a harmonious contact of Mercury with Jupiter that is excellent for negotiations involving loans especially with real estate. This aspect is also good for restoration work, home improvement as well as plumbing. Luck with intelligence is combined in a harmonious way.
Saturday the 10th is another day of harmonious aspects with the first one being that of the Sun with Neptune that is symbolic of spirituality being communicated in simple terms. Spiritual communion is another way of looking at this. Channeling the right message happens.

Sunday the 11th at 1:03pm is the annual Sagittarius Full Moon that symbolizes the letting go, surrender and completion phase of the Moon.

Angel Bethnael is associated with this lunation. The media, schools, information, the Internet, transportation, propaganda, as well as social connections and contacts are highlighted. Keywords associated with this Sagittarius Full Moon are: As if placed in the sacred circle of Stonehenge, the individual recognizes the energetic current of ultra-dimensional spiritual selfhood. There are no barriers between spirit and soul as the marriage of heaven and earth is inevitable.

The last time the Lunar North Node was in the 3rd house of our nation's chart was approximately 19 years ago back in 1987. The media, transportation, information, trade negotiations, advertising, mercantile associations like chambers of commerce will all be the focus over the next year and a half. Primary education as well as teachers will also become a focus.
Monday the 12th is a harmonious contact of Mercury with Uranus that can truly symbolize thinking outside of the box that stimulates innovation, ingenuity, inventiveness, as well as novel approaches being applied. There is a wonderful combination of gut feeling intuition with knowingness intuition that can really be trusted. Inventors can harness water in new ways that bring about breakthroughs. Farmlands, wetlands, waterways, bridges, dams, ports and harbors can all benefit from this aspect. Discussions about ancestors can be enlightening.
President George Bush experiences an inharmonious contact of Jupiter with his natal Mercury placement this same Monday. Care needs to be taken in regards to erroneous information that can be exaggerated. Jumping to any conclusion without thorough details and facts can also be experienced. International deception, fraud, theft and misinformation can be propagated. This is the second contact of Jupiter to Mercury, due to Jupiter's current retrograde motion.

Friday the 16th is an adjustment aspect involving Mercury with Neptune that may try to correct the issues stirred from the previous day's contact of Venus with Neptune. Can sympathy be stimulated? Can commitment, trust and loyalty be instilled?
The annual opposition of the Sun with Pluto occurs this same Friday. These two planets were last conjunct one another last December 15, 2005; these two dates can correspond to one another. This is the clarification and definition period of these two planets. Problem areas can include the following: rage against authority figures, any abuse issue associated with fathers, excessive propaganda, psychological repression as well as control and manipulation.
This Friday is also the monthly Perigee Moon (closest approach of the Moon to Earth) that symbolizes strong intense emotions that can come easily to the conscious surface. This Perigee Moon can exaggerate the previous Sun - Pluto opposition.

There is a connection to the eternal Star Child associated with the Divine Feminine. Nurturing bonds are established and all life is held sacred. Bliss is bequeathed to those who hold Mother Earth as sacred and alive.
Sunday the 18th is the conjunction of Mars with Saturn that only happens once every two years approximately. Interesting that Saturn rules fathers in astrology and this happens to be Fathers Day in the United States. This is an excellent day for any type of sporting event to entertain father. Both of these planets are in the fire sign of Leo so outdoor grilling will be especially appropriate. This aspect is excellent for those individuals ready to engage new projects that require discipline, longevity and meticulous work ethics. Leos born the first week of this zodiac sign tend to do well with this aspect and Geminis celebrating a birthday this day can enjoy this energy boost too. Mars and Saturn will oppose one another next March 22, 2007; these two dates can correspond to one another.
Mars also on this Sunday opposes Chiron so care needs to be taken with accidents due to repetitive stress injuries. Speeding on highways can be particularly lethal if road rage is ignited. All these Mars contacts can be in effect a week before and after this date.
Monday the 19th at 2:40am is the station retrograde of Uranus that will last until it turns direct on November 20, 2006. This retrograde motion of Uranus symbolizes what needs to be reviewed in regards to priorities, innovation, novel approaches, invention, experimentation, team work, team efforts, team results, community, networking, humanitarian goals, legislation and legislative bodies as well as technology, science, engineering and biomedical advances? Once Uranus is in direct motion after November 2006 this degree of retrogradation in June will repeat itself next March 6, 2007. These dates may correspond to one another. This station of Uranus is concerned with the legislative and executive branches of government. There maybe abrupt and rapid accelerated changes due to the public's pressure associated with inflation and oil prices. Entrepreneurial and inventive individuals can be struck with wild ideas in regards to alternative sources of fuel. Commitment and loyalty to the public trust keep politicians' feet to the fire. Floundering focus requires diligence, discipline and initiative to restore fiscal balance. Keywords associated with this station of Uranus are: Laid out on top of the anvil are the hammered priorities of society. A mystical quality is attached to this forging of new metal. Individuals gather together to press for reforms and each individual has a unique gift to offer. A common objective: we can all work with one another when we all acknowledge our mutual diversity, unity and community.

This is literally the "pushing one's luck" syndrome. International protests, civil disobedience as well as acts of terrorism can ignite.
An adjustment aspect also occurs on this Monday involving Venus with Pluto that can represent thwarted reconciliation attempts against strong negative judgments that can stimulate double standards and hypocrisy.
Tuesday the 20th is the third and final opposition of Saturn with Chiron. The two previous oppositions occurred February 20, 2006 and July 21, 2005; all three of these dates can correspond to one another. Here is a quote from the July AstroForecast 2005 about this alignment: "the opposition of Saturn with Chiron emphasizes clarity and definition with national resources and fiscal policies vis à vis bankruptcy tendencies. These two heavenly bodies were last conjunct one another April 12, 1966 and the chart from then was strongly oriented to the communications and pharmaceutical industries."
Wednesday the 21st at 7:26am the majestic Sun enters the sign of Cancer for its annual 30-day journey in this watery zodiac sign. This is the Summer Solstice or the pagan Litha celebration.

The creative and vital identification of all themes associated with the home, family, personal emotions and memories, imagination, dreams and sensitivity come to the fore with this solar transit. National security interests also are affected by this solar journey. Negative expressions of Cancer are hypersensitivity, over-protectiveness, sidestepping issues, burying the old ostrich head in the sand routine so as not to deal or confront a problem directly, over-emotionalism, moodiness and insecurity. Angel Muriel is the ruling angel of the sign of Cancer.
This same Wednesday is an adjustment aspect involving Mercury with Pluto that can symbolize intense emotional issues about family matters require a bit of levity as well as a more tolerant and broadminded perspective. Foreign investors can be concerned about national security, market security and agricultural security.
The Sun is also inharmonious to the Lunar Nodal Axis this same Wednesday that can strongly affect leaders, executives and fathers especially with aggressive actions or lack thereof. A partner in a relationship wants to restore balance to the relationship associated with healthier cooperation, cohesiveness, collaboration as well as compromise.
Thursday the 22nd at 6:05am is the entrance of the North Node into the sign of Pisces and will remain in this sign for the next year and half. The last time the North Node was in Pisces was approximately 19 years ago back in 1987. The chart for this Lunar Nodal ingress is strongly associated with the legislative branch of government, their leaders, leadership as well as priorities for their constituents.

This same Thursday is an inharmonious contact of Jupiter with Saturn. This is the second inharmonious alignment of these two planets. The first contact was last December 16, 2005 and the third and final aspect will occur next October 25, 2006; all three of these dates can correspond to one another. Here is a quote from the December AstroForecast 2005 about this Jupiter - Saturn alignment: "In the Washington DC chart of this alignment these two planets are in financial houses and Saturn is also particularly in the house involving the people as a collective group experiencing restrictions and limitations especially from what may be perceived as draconian measures relating to legislative acts. Jupiter in the house of financial resources principally dealing with taxes, insurance and possible bankruptcies don't quite fit well with Jupiter's more expansive and aggrandizing modalities. Jupiter's challenges involve the exorbitant excesses famous to this planet and Saturn's challenges are pessimism, fear and inadequacy. Corporations bloated with excesses in all fields will be pared down and/or knocked out of business. Fledgling businesses are challenged to remain disciplined, organized and patient through what may be a storm period. Another consideration will be worker's compensation, benefits and pension packages and how they will fare through what maybe a tumultuous business climate over the next year. Personally individuals can be challenged with tendencies to objectify individuals as if they were property/chattel with the "I paid for your debts, gifts, belongings so therefore I own you lock, stock and barrel"! Friendships can be challenged with morose, melancholic individuals caught up with personal limitations that drag the friendship into the ground. Old, brittle friendships begin to fall apart and some individuals experience sudden losses whether financial and/or through even death of friends. The more important orientation is what do we, as individuals really want to commit to in regards to life, love, dignity and ultimately respect? Can we grant and bestow those ideals to one another? We strengthen one another through these commitments and eventually reap the rewards of what we truly cherish, treasure and value for each other."
Friday the 23rd at 7:31pm is the entrance of Venus into the communicative sign of Gemini for an approximate 28-day journey. Grace and diplomacy will be important in all communications. Can we forgive the trespasses of others and learn how to be civil to one another? Light-hearted social activities are excellent with this journey of Venus in Gemini. Variety is truly the spice of life in all social interchanges.
Sunday the 25th at 11:06am is the annual Cancer New Moon symbolizing the new beginnings/new initiatives phase of the Moon. Positive themes to cultivate are unconditional love, nurturance, improving family ties, foster parenthood, sympathy, homage to ancestors and genealogy. Domestic themes of feathering the nest include furnishings, décor and food preparations like canning and preserves do well with the early summer crops. Real estate and agri-business have a new focus with this New Moon. This lunation's angel is Amnediel if you require any assistance. This Cancer New Moon can be very beneficial for the executive branch of government with new initiatives of leadership that want to define and clarify national debt. New strategies dealing with national security can also emerge. Investors sell for profit. Inflationary economic trends spook the markets. Some new health insurance trends can be supported. Customs, tariffs and ports are important to observe. Keywords associated with this Cancer lunation are: Spiritual ancestors gather for the sake of a family member. All human ancestors gather for the sake of Mother Earth. Strong links to the past exist so that a legacy is bequeathed to the future. The common bond between all these ancestors gathered: love, eternally now and in the future.
The A*C*G Map for this Cancer lunation sensitizes the following US geographical locations: Barrow and Juneau Alaska, Hawaii, Eugene and Pendleton Oregon, Spokane Washington, Boise Idaho, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, El Paso Texas, as well as San Juan Puerto Rico.

Tuesday the 27th is an adjustment aspect involving Mars with Uranus that can get the startle and shock reflexes launched. Victimization can run rampant. Dictatorial behaviors can go unchecked.
This same Tuesday is the third and final conjunction of Saturn with President Bush's birth Mercury. The two previous alignment dates were last January 2, 2006 and October 12, 2005; all three of these dates can correspond to one another. Here is a quote from the January AstroForecast 2006 about this aspect: "Saturn is conjunct President Bush's birth Mercury that can symbolize serious, somber as well as disciplined thoughts, communications, ideas, concepts, connections as well as contacts. The negative side of this aspect is that archconservative fears, knee-jerk mental reactions, pessimism and "caught between a rock and hard place" syndrome can manifest."
Wednesday the 28th at 2:57pm is the annual ingress of Mercury into majestic Leo. Due to Mercury's upcoming retrograde in early July this is a very brief passage of Mercury in Leo as it will retrograde back into the sign of Cancer on July 10, 2006. Mercury will re-enter Leo on August 10, 2006. This date in June can correspond to the August date. Creative communications will be a highlight with this passage of Mercury in Leo. Executives and authorities dictate new policies for the masses. Stubbornness and willfulness can be problematic with this Leonine transit of Mercury. Individuals who have strong hunches about risk-taking or speculation do well as long as there is confidence to replace what may be temporarily lost. Global entertainment and the world media romance one another.
Friday the 30th is a harmonious contact of the Sun with Jupiter that symbolizes great confidence coupled with playful creativity lead to growth, expansion and promotion. Benevolent generosity is fostered and identified. Cancers celebrating a birthday on this day can, in general, be quite "lucky" for their entire birthday year ahead! What is important is for these Cancers to recognize, seize and develop opportunities. This is an aspect symbolic of identifying personal faith and beliefs; they can be religious and spiritual yet the most significant meaning of them all is ultimately for the individual to have faith and believe in oneself. This leads the individual to Divine Providence; the principle that God only provides to those who know how to provide for themselves.
"Everything in this world has a hidden meaning...
People, animals, trees, stars are all like hieroglyphics...
We think they are really only people, animals, trees, stars.
It is only years later...
That some of us understand."
"Never mistake thinking for doing or knowledge for wisdom;
one helps you make a living,
the other helps you make a life".
