AstroForecast June 2007
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.
Sunday the 3rd is an adjustment aspect involving Venus with Pluto that symbolizes emotional family issues experience a degree of psychological tolerance in spite of very vocal, strong opinions from family members that would have otherwise. Long-term financial goals with real estate matters would be significant as well. The “I’m going to clobber you over the head with what I think should be your best values” syndrome can cause headaches.
Monday the 4th is a harmonious contact of Mars with Jupiter that is excellent for those individuals asserting new, pioneering directions that later will provide expansive opportunities with healthy growth for future progress. Strong leadership teamed with gung ho and can do attitudes can dazzle prospective clients. This would be an aspect that I normally term as “fortunate action”; healthy actions that lead to fortunate consequences.
Also this same Monday is the perihelion (closest approach to the Sun) of the planet Mars that will play out importantly especially for the signs of Aries and Scorpio. Mars is symbolically having a conference call with the Sun in Gemini; a flurry of telephone calls, appointments as well as presentations can be pursued in an energetic and assertive manner.
Tuesday the 5th at 12:59pm is the entrance of Venus into the sign of Leo for an approximate 28-day journey. Creative individuals do very well with this passage of Venus, due to the stimulation of the more self-expressive side of Leo. Risk-takers and gamblers can roll on the hard side and go full tilt. This is a goddess that loves to be courted and suited, so jewelry and accessories are perfect gifts to be exchanged during this Venus journey in Leo. Whatever have been flaps in relationships prior to this Leo entry of Venus, now can be smoothed as long as all is fair in romance. Leo is the astrological ruler of the heart and the following quote by Sri Ramana Maharshi best describes Venus in Leo “The whole universe is condensed in the body, and the whole body in the heart. Thus, the heart is the nucleus of the whole universe”.
Also this same Tuesday is the annual opposition of the Sun with Jupiter that is the definition and clarification period of these two planets with one another. These two planets were last conjunct one another November 21, 2006; these two dates can correspond to one another. This aspect is important for the executive branch of government and how it is detailing its foreign policy. Commerce and trade will also be important. Teenagers can consult the opinions of fathers in regards to higher educational goals and pursuits. Perhaps a review of all personal opinions associated with objective reality can also be important.
Friday the 8th is the monthly declinational shift of the Moon that symbolizes changes with meteorological, seismic and volcanic activities. A psychological evaluation of a family member may be important. Some individuals experience a general malaise with the world in general.
Saturday the 9th is an inharmonious contact of the Sun with Uranus that can witness accidents involving boating, elevators, harbors, bridges and ports. There is restlessness as well as edginess about information that some individuals harbor suspicions about the veracity of facts. Strange anomalies occur in the skies that many individuals point to “alien visitors in spaceships” have arrived.
Monday the 11th witnesses three harmonious celestial aspects starting with the Sun and Mars that is excellent for staging informative presentations that excite audiences. Inquiries do well with fact-finding missions. Appropriate humor quells any doubts and any misgivings.
The second aspect involves the Sun with Saturn that is outstanding for healthy communications with individuals in positions of power and authority. Those individuals seeking to be groomed for upper management can be persuasive in interviews. Fathers connect well with the first-born child with sage advice given with pertinent matters.
The third aspect involves Mars with Saturn that is exceptional for those individuals industrious and ambitious enough to put in long hours for personal projects that eventually harvest deferred gratification as well as deferred rewards. This aspect will work well with individuals who tend to like working alone without help from others particularly those individuals who can bring about “speedy” results. I would term this aspect the “marathon” runner who through sheer discipline and patience eventually reaches the finish line first.
Tuesday the 12th is 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 arouses the ability for certain individuals to trust their inner intuitions in a twofold manner: one trusting the “gut” instincts as well as trusting the “knowingness” intuition! This intuition can be important with financial matters.
Wednesday the 13th witnesses two harmonious celestial aspects with the first involving the Sun with Neptune that is marvelous for individuals with artistic creativity as the Muse visits these individuals. Social workers can be very insightful in regards to information involving their clients. Those individuals who are very spiritually oriented do well with meditation, contemplation, visualization, affirmation and prayer.
The second aspect involves Mars with Neptune that can be termed the “Good Samaritan” as individuals step forward and are very helpful to individuals in distress whether physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. True “heroes” emerge in the greater sense of the word. Some individuals are extremely courageous in how they stand up for the “underdogs” of society.
Thursday the 14th at 10:14pm is the annual Gemini New Moon launching the new beginnings/new initiatives phase of the Moon for the following 2 weeks. The following areas will be appropriate for this lunation: electronics, all instructional classes especially those that improve skills, talents and natural genius, computer courses, calligraphy, improved communications, Internet website launches, journals, diaries, magazine subscriptions, bookstores and libraries, as well as discussion groups. Angel Schliel is this lunation’s celestial helper to invoke if assistance is required. Executives, leaders, fathers, celebrities, as well as royalty are newsmakers with this lunation. There can also be scandals involving the pharmaceutical industries. The executive and legislative branches of government are at loggerheads with one another especially in regards to foreign policies. This lunation is excellent for family vacations. Keywords associated with this Gemini lunation are: The ability to make universal connections comes alive and is heightened with vibrant energy. Multi-functionality and multi-dimensionality cohesively work with one another in a stream of consciousness sort of way. A variety of perspectives and communications intermingle effortlessly. A nexus is created so future opportunities for true brotherhood and sisterhood can be established.

Friday the 15th at 6:40pm is the station retrograde of Mercury launching the classic Mercury retrograde Murphy’s Law associated with snags, snafus and snits about schedules, delivery systems, transportation, mechanical breakdowns and computer viruses or dysfunctions over the next three weeks. The classic Mercury retrograde is also a time period to review, reevaluate, reanalyze or reassess documents, contracts, important signatures, learning or teaching materials, and important communications. Be sure to back up all important computer related materials before this retrograde of Mercury by at least a week. Those individuals born the following dates in order listed will be strongly sensitized to this Mercury retrograde: June 4th – July 3rd, December 24th – January 2nd, September 25th – October 4th, and March 23rd – April 1st. This retrograde of Mercury is strongly oriented to emotional dynamics in partnerships of all kinds. An enormous amount of adjustments are necessary if excesses, exaggerations and overboard tendencies to be hypocritical, judgmental and negative opinions dominate. Strong arousals of suspicions especially with jealousy and betrayal issues arise. Double standards of any kind won’t cut the mustard. Lack of commitment by any partner can ignite vindictive and retaliatory behaviors. This is the proverbial “payback is a bitch” syndrome. Injustices of any kind will ignite a firestorm. Keywords for this Mercury station are: Cold-hearted intellect collides with human sentimentality. Who yields? Who wields? Who shields? Driving courses teach the vehicle that is already on the road has the right of way. Power is wielded whether intellectual or emotional. All shields are about protection. In other words, whoever is on the roadway of life already has the power, whether intellectual or emotional, to serve a future protection.
Tuesday the 19th is the annual opposition of the Sun with Pluto that symbolizes the desires of the individual to define and clarify future aspirations in regards to learning and/or teaching experiences, worldly perspectives and individual psychology. Fathers play a significant role defining morals, ethics and principles for teenagers. Paradoxes abound in discussions, arguments and discourses.
Also this same Tuesday is a harmonious contact of Venus with Jupiter that can witness compensatory behaviors particularly with shopping and eating binges. Acquisitions of high dollar purchases such as jewelry can increase. Precious metals can witness increases in prices.
Thursday the 21st at 1:06pm 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. Angel Tubiel is associated with the Summer Solstice. 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.
Also this same Thursday is a harmonious contact of Mars with Jupiter that is excellent for competitive sporting events that draw a lot of attention. This aspect can be likened to the “bulldozer” effect as ambitious and willful individuals persist against enormous odds to pull off a “miracle”. International fame can be bestowed to this individual.
There is a declinational shift of the Moon that symbolizes changes with meteorological, seismic and volcanic activities also on this same Thursday. Another bout of issues can arise involving grains that are contaminated such as those that affected pet foods; human food can also be affected that can cause intestinal distress. Confidences involving secrets can be breached.
Friday the 22nd is the final third conjunction of transiting Saturn to President George W. Bush’s birth Venus; the previous conjunction occurred last February 12, 2007 as well as October 2, 2006 with all three of these dates corresponding to one another. Here is a quote from the October AstroForecast 2006 about this conjunction: “This is a very sobering alignment associated with peace processes, diplomatic compromises, financial resolutions, global partnerships, mutual values, legal matters, good counsel, as well as parity. The positive side of this conjunction is Saturn’s orientation to responsibility, accountability, reliability, pragmatism, discipline, wisdom, as well as adequacy. The negative side can be associated with the following: fear, pessimism, denial, stuck in the mud mentality, rigidity, inflexibility, excessive control mechanisms, melancholy, sadness, as well as isolation. Due to Saturn’s slow motion a month before and after these listed dates can apply. There can also be sabotage, secret enemies, negative media reports that have been previously hidden as well as scandal associated with the military, civil service and/or worker anger over compensations.”
Saturday the 23rd is the station retrograde of Uranus that will last until it stations direct on November 24, 2007. 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? This station of Uranus is concerned with partnerships of all kinds. Marriages, particularly those who have been teeter tottering as well as one partner stifled by another’s intransigence, are more than likely heading to divorce. Questionable sales of real estate especially to foreign interest groups can raise ire. Outsourcing of labor to foreign lands can ignite political debate. Fickle behaviors can also appear. Innovative strategies and tactics merit attention. Keywords associated with this station of Uranus are: Enmeshment is a word to consider; how does any individual merge with another? It is through the soul and emotions as confusing as they appear on the surface. Yet inwardly deep compassion and forgiveness grant everyone an oasis of respite. This is healing and regenerative.
Sunday the 24th at 4:27pm is the entrance of fiery Mars into earthy Taurus for an approximate 45-day period. The arousal of sensual desires and passionate earthly delights will be ignited. Whatever initiatives were begun over the last 45-days when Mars was in Aries will now be consolidated and given concrete form. This is a follow-up time period to put into action personal resources and finances to gain productive profitability. William James made an appropriate quote that plugs into this earthy action energy “The great use of a life is to spend it for something that outlasts it”. The drawback to this astrological passage of Mars in Taurus is a childish temperamentality of possessiveness that reflects the “It’s MINE!” syndrome. Be patient and considerate of other individuals’ “territoriality”.
Also this same Sunday is the Apogee Moon (greatest distance from the Earth) that symbolizes the ability to cultivate objectivity and impartiality with emotions/feelings. Sincere reconciliations can sink deep roots that can bring about lasting forgiveness.
Monday the 25th is the final third opposition of Saturn with Neptune; previous opposition dates were February 28, 2007 and August 31, 2006 with all three of these dates corresponding to one another. Here is a quote from the August AstroForecast 2006 about this opposition: “Sobering realities confront delusional, escapist and over idealistic tendencies. Health care, hospitals, politicians, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, the arts, psychics, charitable organizations, as well as workers pensions are under intense scrutiny. A practical and more pragmatic approach desires to be employed in regards to resolutions, definitions and clarifications. Certain sectors of the economy can experience deflation/inflation tendencies as surprising as that combo sounds. A big pinprick is about to pop an unreal bubble in the economy. Is this the beginning of an economic depression or slowdown?”
Tuesday the 26th is an adjustment aspect involving Venus with Uranus that can witness a partner exhibiting the “prima donna” syndrome. Another attention getting syndrome can experience the “weird and bizarre goofball” partner. Domineering behaviors that subject a partner to humiliation and cruelty can also be perpetrated.
Thursday the 28th is a conjunction of retrograde Mercury with the Sun that symbolizes a reevaluation, reanalysis and reassessment of family matters, domestic affairs as well as the emotional well-being of a parent. Care should be taken in regards to property deeds and titles. Water sources and supplies will be important to watch.
Saturday the 30th at 8:50am is the annual Capricorn Full Moon that symbolizes the completion/surrender/let go phase of the Moon. All issues involving career, status, success, authority, hierarchy or issues of insecurity, instability, fear, inadequacy, pessimism, control and limitations come to the fore with this lunation. Angel Geliel is associated with this Capricorn lunation if you want assistance. This Full Moon focuses on themes/issues of the executive branch of government, the legislative branch, speakers of political parties, secretaries, employees, farmers, women bankers, foreign policies, support groups and summer school camps. Keywords associated with this Capricorn lunation are: An inner light glows unabatedly particularly for those individuals industrious and earnest enough to harness their patience and perseverance to be productive in the outer world. Rewards are incentives for ambitions and goals that are harbored deep within the soul. A mountain top view is guaranteed.
The A*C*G Map of this Capricorn lunation sensitizes the following US locations: Hawaii, Nome, Kodiak, the Alaska Peninsula and Fairbanks Alaska, Marquette and Kalamazoo Michigan, Minneapolis-St Paul Minnesota, Gary, Muncie, Terre Haute, Elkhart and South Bend Indiana, Cincinnati Ohio, Des Moines Iowa, Springfield Missouri, Lexington Kentucky, Knoxville and Nashville Tennessee, North and South Carolina, Hot Springs Arkansas, Shreveport Louisiana, Tuscaloosa Alabama, Augusta Georgia, as well as Daytona Beach, Pensacola, Fort Lauderdale and Miami Florida.

Also this same Saturday is the annual opposition of Venus with Neptune that is the definition and clarification period of these two planets with one another. Venus and Neptune were last conjunct one another January 18, 2007; these two dates can correspond to one another. Partners caught up in escapist behaviors can create disillusionment, despondency and discouragement. Care should be taken with false charity appeals that fleece individuals’ pockets. Bizarre mishaps involving the spinal column and/or spinal cord can occur. Adults can exhibit childish temper tantrums that demand constant attention.
