Month Overview:

The first few days of June should be a smooth sail thanks to Venus trine Jupiter and sun trine Saturn on June 3. Feel your way along, take advantage of good timing as best you can. June 5, Mars in Cancer surpasses an opposition with Pluto. Something has got to give – and it will. Mars/Pluto can be a push come to shove, breaking point transit. At an extreme, it can be a harsh reckoning transit, even destructive or violent. Having said that, Mercury retrograde in square aspect to Neptune can diffuse tensions. In fact, the day could bring a welcome relief in terms of a release of pressure or of getting over the hump. Covid restrictions are lifting in many places.

June 10 dishes up a solar eclipse in Gemini. The eclipse is square Neptune. Potentials are on brew, but uncertainty continues. Much is still hidden from full view or still waiting to be written. Even so, Ceres/Uranus infuses a more dynamic life force to potentials, fresh starts, new initiatives, and budding trends. Mercury is at the midpoint peak of its retrograde cycle and at the start of a new creative track with the eclipse sun. If your natal chart is aligned with this eclipse, you’ll feel a strong sense of karmic potency stoking the circumstances and choices of the moment. A strong sense of déjà vu or of catching the wave is your clue to destiny at play. Watch for the eclipse to roll out over the days that follow. Mars enters Leo on June 11. The sun squares Neptune June 13. Saturn, now travelling retrograde, squares Uranus for the second of three meetings spanning the year. Consider this Saturn/Uranus transit as the green light signal between past and future. Hopefully we will continue to see gains on the battle against the pandemic and more progress made on the social ills of the day.

The summer solstice of June 20 begins a new season and a switch track week. It’s the end of semester for some. It’s a good week to take a vacation or to move on to other things. Jupiter in Pisces begins retrograde. By the end of July, Jupiter will revisit Aquarius, a transit that will extend to the end of the year. Mercury ends retrograde on June 22, but it will continue in Gemini through July 11. It will make one more contact with Neptune, on July 6. By that point, the direction forward should become clearer. Neptune retrograde, starting June 25, is a tuning fork influence. Venus enters Leo on June 26. Mars continues in this sign for another month. Both Venus and Mars (the relationship duo) set a good backdrop for placing yourself back at your own creative center, pleasure pursuits, sharing your heart, and for enjoying more of life’s rewards.

ARIES March 19/20 – April 19

Mars in Cancer has kept the pressure on for the past several weeks. As of June 5, Mars will make an exact alignment with Pluto (by opposition.) This transit can see you over the hump or it can produce a push come to shove moment. You could face a next step, a new fight, or a new trajectory. No matter how it plays out, June 5 kicks it/kicks you into high gear. The moon in Aries teams up with Eris.  When you are hot and/or in the want, you are a dynamo in action! Something or someone can take you by surprise or by storm. Also, on this day, Mercury retrograde reconvenes with Neptune for the second of three alignments (next one is July 6). Inspiration and passion are well worth putting into action. Don’t let anger get the better of you, find a way to channel it instead.

The solar eclipse on June 10 is a mobilizing influence for all things Gemini related (talks, plans, projects, paperwork, commerce, transportation modes, information gathering, social and physical activity, etc.). You can feel a sense of heading onto a next page or fresh chapter, especially so if your birthday falls on or near April 9, 10. This eclipse is accompanied by several notable transits. Most importantly, Mercury is at the midpoint peak of its retrograde cycle (conjunct the sun). Ceres/Uranus (conjunction) infuses new life into the moment. The eclipse is square Neptune, suggesting more is on brew than is evident. All the above dial up the karmic potency of circumstances in play. These transits put an added spotlight on someone of significance to you (i.e., a friend, colleague, sibling, neighbour). Watch for things to unfold over the several days that follow. June 11 to 14 hold a string of significant transits, most notably, Mars into Leo, sun/Neptune (square), and the second installment of Saturn’s square to Uranus (a key transit that dictates the whole year).

June 20 to 26, the stars rearrange the gameboard. In addition to the kick-off with the summer solstice on June 20 (sun’s entrance into Cancer), the week warehouse several planetary transitions: Jupiter stations retrograde on June 20. Mercury ends retrograde on June 22. Neptune stations retrograde on June 25. Venus enters Leo on June 26. Take it one step at time, go by feel.

TAURUS April 19 – May 20

Did the total lunar eclipse of May 26 bring things to a head? Perhaps it has forced you to see truth for what it is rather than to skim over it or dress it up somehow, to look at your situation with fresh eyes. By June 5, Mars in Cancer reaches a critical turning point with Pluto. Mars/Pluto is a push come to shove aspect. There can be tough stuff to face. Mercury/Neptune can expose, reveal, or unleash more than you knew was there to begin with. June 10 to 14 can set the reality into play in some no turning back way. It could be through a conversation, a piece of news, a want ad, or some such. One way or another, one thing after another; it is a time to get yourself up and running, to set next steps into motion. If you haven’t quite figured it out yet, watch for circumstances to provide you with a better sense of direction.   

Mars enters Leo on June 11; Venus enters Leo on June 26. Both transits can boost confidence, creativity, or a sense of “I deserve”. Both set a backdrop for an improved base of operations. June 20 – 26, three planets change direction and two change signs. Here is the list: Summer solstice/sun into Cancer and Jupiter in Pisces stations retrograde June 20, Mercury in Gemini ends retrograde June 22, Neptune in Pisces stations retrograde June 25, Venus enters Leo June 26. The week can redirect plans or make for added guesswork. Take your cue from the moment.


GEMINI May 20 – June 20

Even if things don’t go according to plan, don’t expect to be a standstill. It’s one thing after through the first half of June. June 5, Mars/Pluto can bring matters to a head. This date and the days that follow could see you surpass a block or hold up. Know also that this is a delayed reaction influence. Something you thought was a done deal could get triggered, perhaps suddenly or unexpectedly so. Noting that Mercury in Gemini continues in retrograde through June 22, you can find yourself on another go around, revisiting a conversation, etc. When Mercury is retrograde in your sign, it is a good time for a regroup or rethink. You can find yourself more introspective and intuitively aware.

If your birthday is on or near it, the solar eclipse in Gemini on June 10 can be particularly notable, event generating, or trend setting, perhaps in some exceptional way. It could be via a conversation, a piece of news, or a revisit of some sort. Watch for someone or something to launch a fresh wind. The eclipse is also a catalyst for health, social, economic, and political trends too.  Aligned with the peak of Mercury’s retrograde cycle, the solar eclipse can be a significant tide turning or page turning influence. Eclipses are important karmic catalysts. Things happen for a reason! Someone or something can burst onto the scene with a great life force. The eclipse is followed by Mars into Leo (June 11), sun/Neptune (June 13) and the second installment of Saturn/Uranus (June 14, square aspect) to mention a few! Saturn (now retrograde) and Uranus are the dominant influence for the entire year. They place us at the intersection of moving past the past and getting on board with the future.

June 20 to 26 is another week to watch. The end of the school semester is well timed. You will really feel the transition into a new season. The start of Jupiter retrograde coincides with the summer solstice June 20. Mercury ends retrograde on June 22, but it will not leave Gemini until July 11. Mercury gives you an extension of time to get yourself up and rolling. Neptune stations retrograde on June 25. Venus enters Leo on June 26. Play it either way – it’s a week time to put it on chill, or to jump on the trend and explore a fresh potential.

CANCER June 20 – July 22
Venus enters Cancer on June 2 and aligns with Jupiter on May 3. Along with the sun’s trine to Saturn, the first couple of days of June can see things fall into place well. Having said that. Mars in Cancer takes you or it to a breaking point on June 5. This is a transit that has keep you on edge for the past several weeks. No matter how it plays out for you, it sets the stage for progress. Mercury retrograde triggers Neptune on this same day. It is a “give-way” or fresh page influence. Mercury/Neptune also sets potentials or the previously hidden from view into play.

June 10 delivers a solar eclipse in Gemini. The eclipse is accompanied by several notable transits. Ceres/Uranus infuses all fresh starts, undertakings, potentials, or new trends with strong and substantial wings. Mercury is at the peak of its retrograde cycle. Watch for news, a conversation, something you read, hear, see or revisit to get the ball rolling in some notable way. Someone could act as a catalyst or messenger. Despite Mercury retrograde, this eclipse favours moving and/or launching a new venture. Know that an eclipse holds potency over a duration of time. If it doesn’t prompt a change now, it will soon! You may have to work your way though several stages, phases, or hoops before you get yourself fully repositioned. The rest of the year is set up to help you do just that. Keep exploring, stay hopeful.

Mars enters Leo on June 11. This creative enterprise transit helps you to make better use of the resources you have. Mars in Leo can help you to discover new capacities, talents, or money-making sources. The transit can brighten your mood, hopefulness, or confidence, and/or help you to gain better reward. June 13, sun squares Neptune. June 14, Saturn meets with Uranus for the second of three threshold crossing alignments. It can play out for you in subtle or obvious ways. The past is on a receding track; the future is on a gaining track.

Opening with the summer solstice and the start of Jupiter retrograde, June 20 to 26 sets up a transition week. Mercury ends retrograde on June 22. Neptune stations retrograde on June 25. Venus enters Leo on June 26. Roadblocks are moving out of the way and/or clearing up. You should start to feel that you are navigating your way perhaps even better than you envisioned.

LEO July 22 – August 22
Mars in opposition to Pluto on June 5 can see you solve a problem, perhaps even one you didn’t know you had. Whether subtle or obvious, you could stumble upon something advantageous or make a significant discovery or breakthrough. This transit can remove a block or hold up, sweep something away and/or get the ball rolling on a health matter, work situation, or a creative project. An ending and a fresh start are well timed.

The solar eclipse on June 10 is accompanied by several notable additions. Lighting a fresh spark, Ceres/Uranus can springboard something lucrative, beneficial, or enhancing. Mercury reaches the midpoint of its retrograde cycle (conjunct the eclipse sun). This transit ads an extra kick to the karmic nature of communications, circumstances, social interaction, potentials, and trends. A revitalizing transit, Mars enters Leo on June 11 (to stay through July 29). This is a “catch the wave” eclipse will be significant for you if it makes direct contact to your natal chart. Otherwise you’ll see it play out in indirect ways. Eclipses always hold an element of the unexpected. The eclipse is square Neptune, so know more is on brew than is readily visible. June 13, sun/Neptune can reveal or undercover more regarding the potential. June 14, Saturn (currently retrograde) meets Uranus for the second time this year. It can bring a switch track feel, like you are gaining better ground for yourself and regarding the reinvention process. Saturn retrograde moves restrictions out of the way. Hopefully, this second installment of Saturn/Uranus keeps us on the positive upswing regarding the pandemic battle too.

Coinciding with the end of the school semester and the start of summer, the week of June 20 to 26 the stars shift the momentum again. Here’s the line up: June 20, summer solstice (sun enters Cancer), Jupiter in Pisces begins retrograde; June 22, Mercury in Gemini ends retrograde; June 25, Neptune in Pisces starts retrograde; June 26, Venus enters Leo.  The week can reroute your attention. It is a good one for enjoying more of life’s simple pleasures.

VIRGO August 22 – September 22

The first couple of days of June can keep you on a good roll. Venus trine Jupiter and the sun trine Saturn on June 3 can see you making the most of it and having something good to show for it too. June 5, Mars in Cancer opposes Pluto. This can be a push come to shove transit. To the plus, it can see you surpass a restriction or hurdle, or see you make a breakthrough regarding your career, with yourself, the boss, or the powers that be.

June 10 delivers a solar eclipse in Gemini in square to Neptune. Laden with hidden potential yet to reveal itself, this eclipse sets a next phase or trend into play. The eclipse is accompanied by several notable transits. Ceres/Uranus offers a strong kick-start to new ventures (attitude included).

Mercury in Gemini is at the midpoint peak of its retrograde cycle and at the start of a new creative track with the eclipse sun. June 11, Mars enters Leo. June 13, the sun squares Neptune. The eclipse will be of greater impact for you if your birthday falls on or near Sept 13 (to 17) or if it makes significant contact to your natal chart. It suggests a new reality is in the works, that a new chapter of your life is at the starting gate. The eclipse could launch a next phase or a new trajectory regarding your career and professional life, or a new personal life (relationship, family, material) status. Don’t hesitate to get yourself bettered trained, informed, and educated, or to relocate for better prospects. Eclipses hold potency over an extended timeframe. This one could deliver the goods now, in September, at the end of the year, or in the first quarter of 2022.

The summer solstice on June 20 kicks off with Jupiter at the start of it’s four-month retrograde cycle. Mercury in Gemini ends retrograde on June 22. Neptune in Pisces begins retrograde on June 25. Venus enters Leo on June 26. In combination, these transits set up a transition week. It’s ideal for the start of a vacation or for easing up on the throttle and going with the flow.

LIBRA September 22 to October 22

Venus enters Cancer on June 2 and trines Jupiter on June 3. Along with the sun’s trine to Saturn, you should feel the month opens on a good roll, this despite Mercury’s retrograde tour. If you are feeling under pressure or forced forward, it is the energy of Mars in Cancer building to an opposition with Pluto on June 5. Sooner or later it has got to give way. Mars/Pluto is a push come to shove, or line in the sand influence. To the plus, it can set you up for a significant breakthrough, or see you surpass a hurdle or a finish line. Coinciding with Mars/Pluto, Mercury/Neptune releases or unleashes it/you. Mercury will meet with Neptune for a final time on July 6. This transit stokes potentials, but it also keeps the guesswork going.

June 10 delivers a solar eclipse in Gemini. The eclipse holds great promise for what comes next – i.e. the short-range future. Pay close attention to inner and outer messages. Today sets up tomorrow. An eclipse sets a karmic potency cycle into play. Watch the trends, ride the good wave! This eclipse is opportune for all matters to do with getting the message across to a wider audience, for writing projects, studies, teaching or other presentations, legal matters, paperwork reports or filings, permits, etc. It’s also an auspicious time to sign on with an agent, teacher, counsellor, or advisor, (or perhaps to change one). As is typical of Mercury retrograde, you could reconnect with someone you haven’t heard from in awhile, perhaps someone who lives a distance away. A sense of instant recognition is your clue to a past life recall. Watch for news or an announcement. Lastly, the eclipse favours speculative interests (stock market investments, etc.).

The summer solstice on June 20 launches a change of season and a transition week. Jupiter in Pisces begins retrograde the same day. Mercury in Gemini ends retrograde on June 22. Neptune in Pisces stations retrograde on June 25, and rounding it out, Venus enters Leo on June 26. Allow yourself extra slack. Go with the flow.

SCORPIO October 22 to November 21

June opens on a smooth-running track, thanks to Venus in Cancer (starting June 2) in good alignment with Jupiter (trine June 3) and the sun in good alignment with Saturn (also trine on June 3). Use this day to put it out there or to take it further. Results can be significant and rewarding. Having said that, Mercury in Gemini continues in retrograde, and Mars in Cancer is on a major push with Pluto. By June 5, Mars will surpass a restriction, hold up, or pressure point. You can feel a sense of being let off the hook. Or the transit can force you to let go of an expectation or something you have considered as important. Also, on June 5, Mercury meets with Neptune for the second of three meetings spanning pre and post the retrograde cycle.  This transit can soften or diffuse the Mars/Pluto intensity. Perhaps you’ll simply find the time to relax and unwind. On another note, Mercury/Neptune continues to keep potentials on brew, but uncertainty too. The best you can do is to stay open and alert to the range of possibilities.

June 10 delivers a solar eclipse (new moon) in Gemini. The eclipse is accompanied by Ceres/Uranus (conjunction) amplifying fresh starts, ideas, new trends, and urges. Mercury reaches the midpoint peak of its retrograde cycle (conjunct the eclipse sun) and the start of a new creative track. The eclipse is also in square aspect to Neptune. This suggests more is on brew that is readily apparent. Watch the few days that follow for more rollout:  June 11, Mars enters Leo, June 13, sun squares Neptune, June 14 Saturn squares Uranus. Eclipses hold their potency over an extended length of time too. What is in the planning stage or is seeding now can reach a next phase in the fall or by the end of the year.

The summer solstice on June 21 launches a shift track week. Jupiter in Pisces begins retrograde on June 21, Mercury in Gemini ends retrograde on June 22, and Neptune in Pisces begins retrograde on June 25. Finishing out the week, Venus enters Leo on June 26. Follow the stars/the natural course. Ease up, take it as it comes.

SAGITTARIUS November 21 – December 21

June 2 is an optimum day to make it official, ask for more, try your luck, or to get a move on. Venus/Jupiter and sun/Saturn (both trines) set a good backdrop for making the most of it and for netting good results. Mars in Cancer hits a breakthrough with Pluto on June 5. Also, on this same day Mercury meets with Neptune (by square aspect) for the second of three meetings spanning pre and post Mercury retrograde. To the plus, the combo can diffuse recent tensions and provide a welcome release.

June 10 delivers a solar eclipse in Gemini. The eclipse is square Neptune which suggests more is on brew that may be readily evident. The eclipse also draws from Ceres/Uranus infusing more life-force into fresh starts (a revitalizing and reviving aspect.) Also coinciding with the eclipse, Mercury reaches the midpoint peak of its retrograde cycle (conjunct the sun) and begins a next creative development/implementation phase. Watch the few days that follow for more rollout. June 11, Mars enters Leo. June 13, the sun squares Neptune and June 14, Saturn (now retrograde) squares Uranus for the second time this year. The solar eclipse is mobilizing influence. It launches a next chapter, sets a new trend. With Covid restrictions lifting and more businesses opening, it sets an opportune backdrop for getting back to the things we usually do/that we’ve missed out on recently – i.e. socializing, connecting, and traveling more. The eclipse can be an especially influential springboard for you if you are born on or near Dec 13.

The summer solstice (June 20) is accompanied by Jupiter in Pisces stationing to retrograde. June 22, Mercury ends retrograde. June 25 Neptune begins retrograde. These planetary redirects can make for an up and down, off and on, or start/stop week. Like the ocean’s currents, allow yourself to be taken where-ever the flow goes. Venus enters Leo on June 26. Use this week to let yourself off the hook, take a vacation, or to allow inspirations of the moment to sweep you away.

CAPRICORN December 21 to January 20

June opens with sun/Saturn and Venus/Jupiter (both trine aspects) setting you on a positive upswing. June 3 is a good day to put ambition into play. You can easily reach your mark – and then some! Despite Mercury continuing in retrograde motion, things can fall into place readily and well.

June 5, Mars in Cancer surpasses an opposition with Pluto and Mercury turns a corner with Neptune (square aspect). In combination, you can feel these transits as unblocking, releasing, or diffusing. It is good to see Covid restrictions lift.

June 10 delivers a solar eclipse in Gemini. It could start you on a positive upswing regarding health and fitness regimes. A new job (or new job hunt), a new study or training program holds good promise. Accompanying the eclipse, Ceres/Uranus (conjunction) infuses added vigor into all new initiatives. In other words, it’s springboard time! The eclipse favours all fresh starts aimed toward improvement. As such it sets an auspicious backdrop for resuming projects, studies, or other good-for-you activities. Have another conversation, review steps, revise plans, seek a second opinion, hire an agent or advisor, or replace the one you have. Renewal agreements (i.e. renewing a lease, a loan, a membership, etc.), trade-ins (auto, etc.), or upgrades to equipment, technology, media, advertising, or your resume are also timely.

The summer solstice on June 20 begins a new season and a switch track week. Jupiter starts retrograde on June 20, Mercury ends retrograde on June 22, and Neptune starts retrograde on June 25. While all three can be subtle, you may find you lose interest or momentum for some things, while other things seem to pick up steam. Go with the flow! Finishing out the week, Venus enters Leo on June 26. It’s time to enjoy more, worry less.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18/19

The first few days of the month should prove to be a smooth sail, thanks to Venus, freshly into Cancer, in trine to Jupiter and the sun in trine to Saturn. As of June 5, Mars surpasses Pluto. This transit should bring the feel of being over the hump. Combined with Mercury/Neptune (also on June 5), you can feel a release or sense of relief.  On the other hand, Mercury/Neptune can trigger something unexpected.

The solar eclipse in Gemini on June 10 is a trend setter or news maker influence. As Covid restrictions lift, social opportunity is on the gain. The eclipse can put added attention on a special someone. As is the nature of all eclipses, a sense of fate or destiny is at play, especially regarding the connections you make, the conversations you have, and the people you meet.  The eclipse favours moving onto something new or next. Accompanying the eclipse, Ceres/Uranus can rejuvenate and revitalize in some striking way. What is seeded now holds lucrative potential. This transit favours real estate and/or other types of investment (money and time.) A sibling, family member, renter, or roommate can claim more of your attention too. Mercury in Gemini is at the midpoint of its retrograde cycle and at the start of a new creative track. The eclipse puts an added spotlight on matters of heart, on career and creative enterprise, and on those you love. With Neptune in the mix (square the eclipse) potentials are on brew, but they may still be hidden from full view. June 11 to 14 can give you more to go on. If not sooner, then later. This eclipse will continue to hold good promise. It will continue to unfold and to reveal more through the fall and end of the year.

The summer solstice on June 21 is accompanied by Jupiter in Pisces at the start of its four-month retrograde tour. The week hosts the end of Mercury retrograde (June 22), the start of Neptune retrograde (June 25) and the start of Venus in Leo (June 26). You can feel these transits in subtle or more obvious ways. Take each day one at a time. The end of the school semester (northern hemisphere) and start of a new season is well timed.

PISCES February 18/19 to March 19/20

The transiting moon in Pisces gives you a sense of “in your element” at month’s start. Venus in Cancer (starting June 2) makes the most of it with Jupiter on June 3. The sun’s trine to Saturn also sets a backdrop for timing it just right. June 5, Mars surpasses Pluto (opposition) and Mercury surpasses Neptune (square aspect). Held up no longer, Mars/Pluto moves you past a block or a hurdle. Both transits can unleash what’s been building or get the ball up and rolling. You could feel these transits as a welcome relief, as a diffusion of recent tensions and the ability to relax more. On the other hand, it can be a force the envelop time. Either way, the transit sets a productive backdrop. The lifting of Covid restrictions comes as a welcome reprieve.

The solar eclipse in Gemini on June 10 sets you onto a next phase or chapter. The eclipse puts the focus on home, family, and real estate matters. There can be important news, perhaps a new address is the works. It’s also a time to sign on with an agent, to deal with important paperwork, negotiate terms, etc. Ceres/Uranus (conjunction) suggests something lucrative is in the works. Neptune’s square to the eclipse suggests there is more on brew than is visible. What takes place now is an unfolding process with several layers or components to sort through. Noting that Mercury retrograde also a signature of the eclipse, it is important to double-check all details, arrangements, plans, and agreements. While it is usually unwise to sign a contract during Mercury retrograde, the eclipse is the exception to the rule. That’s because Mercury is at the midpoint peak of its retrograde cycle and starting a new creative track with the sun. Proceed with confidence, but also stay open ended, allow ample margin to incorporate add-ons or changes, be prepared for circumstances to evolve and to take on a life of their own. The eclipse will be especially mobilizing for you if your birthday falls on or near March 11 or if it makes a dynamic contact to your natal chart. Watch June 10 to 14 for one thing after another. This eclipse will continue to hold potency through the fall and through the end of the year.

The summer solstice on June 20 begins a new season and a switch track week. Jupiter is a temporary visitor to your sign. Jupiter turns retrograde on June 20 and will leave Pisces by the end of July. Jupiter retrograde can see you do more questioning or second guessing. Neptune in Pisces turns retrograde on June 25. Both transits aim to get you better onto target with what’s real, to be more selective regarding who and what gets a piece of you. Mercury in Gemini ends retrograde on June 22 which gives the green light to getting the show on the road. Still, there’s plenty of uncertainty to work through or unknown factors to uncover. Mercury meets with Neptune on July 5 for a third time, completing the checkpoint it started in May.  As stated previously, the stars are taking you through work in progress. Each step of the way gives you more to go on. Follow the flow, modify as the moment dictates.

LEO July 22 – August 22

Thanks to the sun in dynamic aspect to Uranus (conjunction) and Saturn (square), the first few days of the month sets a new reality into play. You can feel a sense of turning the corner or making it over the hump with someone or something. Mercury enters Gemini on May 3; Venus enters Gemini on May 8. Both are mobilizing transits. Setting prospects (financial, social) on the upswing, they set a good backdrop for getting yourself/it to someplace good.

Jupiter dips into Pisces from May 13 to July 28. This transit can be subtle, it may even go unnoticed. If you are sensitive to this transit, you’ll clue into more than you may have words for. Jupiter in Pisces stirs hidden or latent potentials and buried emotions. It also escalates the yearning for more peace and quiet, for more spiritual, emotional, or material fulfillment. Volunteer activities can be rewarding. (Perhaps someone you know/love needs a gentle touch, more kindness or guidance, or even some rescuing). Jupiter in Pisces can help you to relinquish, surrender and ease up on it more, to let go of something that you have struggled with. To the plus, Jupiter in Pisces can stimulate creativity or romance. Trust the wisdom of your intuition.

May 22 onward, the stars move onto a next page or wave. Something moves out of the way, is unblocked or surpassed. Mercury/Neptune (May 22) and Saturn retrograde (starting May 23) can act as preliminary triggers for the super full moon/total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26. Also contributing to this very potent eclipse: Venus/Neptune (square May 27), Venus/Mercury (new cycle May 27), and Mercury retrograde (starting May 29). It’s one thing after another. All three keep the action rolling along a fluid track. The eclipse can springboard you or jettison you to someplace good. Once the spark is lit and/or it gets off the ground, it will take on a dynamic life of its own. Overall, this eclipse can be fortuitous for your sign. You can feel fate or destiny in play in some major way. As is typical of Mercury retrograde, expect to re-meet, revisit, repeat or revise. You could resume something that has been recently waylaid (a plan, project, a trip, a move, a new financial or romantic adventure).

VIRGO August 22 – September 22
May is front-loaded and end-loaded, but in differing ways. The sun, Mercury and Venus set a productive backdrop over the first week of the month. You should feel a sense of getting over the hump and that generally, you are hitting a good stride regarding activities, communications, and relationships. Mercury enters Gemini on May 3 and Venus enters Gemini on May 8. Moving from trines to Pluto in the first half of the month and to trines to Saturn in mid month (May 12, May 19), both Mercury and Venus set a lucrative backdrop for making the most of it. More things to do, more places to go, more things to think about and more people to interface with – each day is full to the brim.

Jupiter takes a brief dip into Pisces from May 13 to July 28. This transit can draw added attention to what’s missing, to the blank spaces. There is plus side to that. Jupiter in Pisces can prompt you to go in search for more – more personal or material reward, more love, more peace of mind, more sustenance for the soul. Jupiter in Pisces wants you to dream it bigger, aspire higher. Create the room for it, stay confident and hopeful, and there is a better possibility to attract it. Consider this temporary Jupiter transit as a tap on the shoulder (or rather the heart), as preview for the future (2022 and beyond).

The super full moon/total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26 can springboard a new self-discovery process, a next personal life chapter, or career direction. It could prompt new address or family circumstance (perhaps a new addition to the family?), a return to school, to a place you have visited or once lived. Venus and Mercury begin a new cycle just one day before Mercury turns retrograde. You could reconnect with someone from your past, whether actually or through karmic destiny (a twist of fate or déjà vu provides your clue). You may re-meet with the past, but it is never the same twice!

Mercury’s retrograde tour in Gemini can change your plans, your mind, or the way you observe your reality. A friend or sibling can draw you into a (karmic) revisit too. You can find yourself in transition, or “betwixt and between”. If so, this a time of flux is temporary. Take it one step at a time, deal with the demand of the moment as it arises, think/act in terms of today for tomorrow’s gain (short term or temporary), and allow for circumstances to play themselves out.

LIBRA September 22 to October 22

You can make good headway in the first few days of the month, perhaps unexpectedly so. The sun on trigger with Uranus and Saturn dish up positive assistance. It is a time when you can more easily build on your successes. Sun/Saturn (May 3) can jettison you past a roadblock and/or see you make a significant break-through regarding something that has been in works for awhile.

Mercury leaves Taurus for Gemini on May 3. Venus leaves Taurus for Gemini on May 8. Making good connections to Pluto and Saturn along the way, both transits provide good assistance through May 19. You should gain a good feel for what will provide you with the most bang for your buck; for what and who is most worthy of your time and attention. Both Mercury and Venus increase your intuitive awareness. Trust your instincts!

Jupiter’s transit through Aquarius is one of your best, especially in terms of personal reawakening, creative enterprise, and matters of heart.  As of May 13, Jupiter begins a skinny dip in Pisces. You may or may not notice its influence, but no matter how subtle, the transit holds plenty of sway. If/when/as best you can, gift yourself with extra time to heal, to relax, to feel your way along and to catch up with yourself. Potentials are on brew, but they can be easily missed when you are stressed, distracted, or run ragged.

May 22 Mercury squares Neptune. May 23, Saturn in Aquarius begins retrograde. Something could be uncovered, exposed, or give way. Mercury/Neptune can be a mixed message, watered down message, blurred lines, or confusion transit. Don’t take it at face value, don’t jump to conclusions. You could find yourself on an energy drain or second-guess yourself. On the other hand, both transits clear the clutter and set the stage for the super full moon/total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26.

The total lunar eclipse sets the future into play in a take flight or big picture way. There’s significant opportunity for the taking. Your intuition can speak volumes. Trust your instincts! You can have a message to deliver and an audience to play to. Put yourself out there, speak your truth, give a presentation or workshop, attend a conference, write your book, exhibit your talents, or pitch your product/project. This eclipse is also opportune for moving, travel, higher education pursuits, speculative venture, or a spiritual quest. The eclipse is followed by a Venus/Neptune square (May 27) which is good for aspiring, creativity and indulging yourself, but not necessary for the practical end, or for keeping it real. May 28, Venus, and Mercury begin a new cycle. Double check with yourself or another, make sure you have all your facts and figures straight and that you have all that you need to put the show on the road. Even so, keep open ended and put added flexibility in your plans. A revision, repeat, backtrack, or add-on is likely. Mercury in Gemini begins a retrograde tour on May 29.

SCORPIO October 22 to November 21
Sun/Uranus supplies you with a revitalizing boost at month’s start.  You should have no trouble getting yourself or it up and rolling. At peak through the first week of the month, intuition helps you to see with fresh eyes and to evaluate in a new way.  In turn, you’ll start to consider options and spot opportunities that could have easily been overlooked. Mercury and Venus assist you to navigate and negotiate with great skill, especially May 2 and 6. Both planets set a lucrative backdrop, especially May 12 and 19.

Jupiter dips a toe into Pisces from May 13 to July 28. It could be a subtle influence. It could even go unnoticed as it will not take a full dive until the start of 2022. Even so, know Jupiter in Pisces dishes up ample opportunity. The transit can diffuse tension and make it easier to go with the flow, to create and/or net gain. Relax more. That’s when the healing begins, inspiration comes naturally, and when your creativity does its best conjuring. This Jupiter transit can stimulate romance or call you to the spiritual side of life.

Mercury squares Neptune on May 22. Saturn turns retrograde on May 23. Combined, they could pull back a curtain or unleash something that’s been on brew. To the plus they can clear a pathway or clear away what’s been getting the better of you.

May 26 delivers a total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius. It is also a super full moon. This high tide eclipse gets it off the ground, exposes it, or cuts to the chase in some big step way. One way or another, truth is revealed.  Opportunity can come knocking, but make sure to see things for what they are, not for what you want to see. Once set it motion, it will run the full course. Venus and Mercury move to a new phase on May 28. On May 29, Mercury begins retrograde. You might be on a new page, but revisits and revisions are a natural part of the process. A second chance can be too. The eclipse can prompt you to retrace your steps, renegotiate a contract, to have another conversation, or to give it another try.

SAGITTARIUS November 21 – December 21

Over the first few days of the month, the sun hits it fresh with Uranus and gets over the hump with Saturn. Just before Mercury and Venus leave Taurus, (May 3, May 8) they form productive alignments with Pluto. Soon after they begin their individual tours of Gemini, they form productive alignments with Saturn (May 12 and 19). What does that all mean? For the most part, you should find that you are making good inroads and that things fall into place naturally and well.

May 13 to July 28, Jupiter takes a brief dip in Pisces. The transit can be subtle in effect. Despite Mercury and Venus on tour in social Gemini, Jupiter in Pisces can find you craving more time to yourself. You can find yourself saying less but observing more. Jupiter makes you even more attuned to environments and to the moods and feelings of those around you. You’ll find inspiration in quiet moments, in poetry or music, etc. Perhaps there is something or someone to let go of. Set yourself free too. Allow yourself more time to relax, heal, to dream, to imagine, to feel what your soul wants you to feel. Jupiter in Pisces also draws attention to the spiritual side of life.

Take full advantage of the month ahead while the stars keep the dial on smooth going. By the weekend of May 22, the momentum can shift. Mercury/Neptune (square, May 22) and the start of Saturn retrograde (May 23) and the total lunar eclipse (also a super full moon) in Sagittarius on May 26 can take the lid off whatever has been on brew but has not yet seen the full light of day. You will feel the fullest effect of this eclipse if your birthday is on or near November 28. Venus and Mercury begin a new cycle on May 28. The very next day, Mercury begins a three-week retrograde tour. As soon as you get it launched, it can shift direction. You are likely to feel a sense of déjà vu or destiny in play. As is typical of the retrograde cycle, expect to re-meet, repeat, or revisit. There are more conversations to have, more options to explore, more leg work to do, or another round to go.

CAPRICORN December 21 to January 20
Start of the month smooths out rough edges. The sun and Mercury/Pluto (trine May 2) loans you a fresh pair of eyes, Venus/Pluto (trine May 6) gives you a better feel. You should find that you get good value out of your time, conversations, and expenditures.

The sun in Taurus (to April20) enhances opportunity, reward, and creative potential. The sun assists you to pace it right and to make most of what you there is work with. Mercury enters Gemini on May 3. Venus enters Gemini on May 8. Fresh air, more walking, more exercise; both transits keep your body moving and your days full to the brim with one thing after another. Mercury trine Saturn (May 12) is a good day to handle the official stuff, to interview for a job, talk it out, solidify plans and/or get it up and rolling. Venus trine Saturn (May 19) is also favourable for money transactions, making a commitment or for netting good results.

Jupiter dips into Pisces from May 13 to July 28. A subtle influence, this brief transit can go unnoticed. To the plus, Jupiter in Pisces can be a stress diffuser. You can find it easier to deal with uncertainty, to better relax, unwind, and go with the flow. When you are at ease, you’ll find inspiration filters in more naturally. Allow yourself to lose track of time. Put worry on vacation (it doesn’t take you anywhere). Chill out, play music, watch movies, get more sleep, aim for more romance, dive into a creative project.

You could feel a yourself on a switch track or have a sense of a significant turn of the tides as of May 22. Mercury square Neptune (May 22) and the start of Saturn retrograde (May 23) precede the super full moon/total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26. Laden with opportunity, the eclipse warehouses significant hidden/untapped potential. Coinciding with the eclipse, Venus and Mercury begin a new cycle on May 28. Mercury in Gemini begins a three-week retrograde tour on May 29. If this eclipse makes contact to your natal chart, you’ll feel a sense of fate or destiny in play. Whether of direct or indirect influence, both Venus and Mercury put an added spotlight on someone important to you. Work and health are also a feature. Mercury retrograde can take you through another round, but it is never the same thing twice.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18/19

The sun has signed you up for something new. Look to the sun, Venus, and Mercury in Taurus keep you well grounded while moving forward. All three assist you to make good use of the resources you have (time and heart included). Mercury advances into Gemini on May 3. Venus advances into Gemini on May 8. Both are mobilizing transits. The momentum is good and mostly smooth running for most of the month ahead. Put your time to good use. Between May 12 and 19 you should feel you have accomplished well, that you have reached a productive level, an important goalpost or finish-line.

Spanning the year, Jupiter in Aquarius lights a fresh spark and points you in a new direction. It’s a “go the distance”, future bound influence. Think back 12 years. That was the last time Jupiter transited your sign. What new track did you find yourself on? Perhaps there’s something coming full circle or something similar building for you now. Don’t discount those new instincts, impulses, and fresh downloads, explore them instead. They are important clues to assist you to stay a good step ahead.

Jupiter takes a brief exit out of Aquarius and into Pisces from May 13 – July 28.  This transit assists you to take a deeper dive, to synchronize with yourself and your evolving reality, to tap the creative wellspring that’s inside of you. Immerse yourself right where you are. There is no need to struggle or force what isn’t coming naturally. There is no place better to be than “at one” with the moment.

Mercury/Neptune (square) on May 22 and the start of Saturn retrograde on May 23 shift the focus and/or momentum. It can be time to put one thing aside for another, perhaps to go onto something a temporary or short-term. Both transits clear the pathway for the total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius of May 26 (it is also a super full moon). The temporary or short term sets the long range/term into play. If the eclipse makes a direct contact to your natal chart, it can set the future in motion in some bigger format, overtaking, and destiny-making way. Venus and Mercury in start a new cycle on May 28. They suggest the ability to relate, communicate, team-up, meet, greet, or market in some “ready, set, go” way. Mercury stations retrograde on May 29. You may be into something entirely fresh, but with a strong sense of déjà vu or a karmic destiny in play. Such is the nature of an eclipse, especially one aligned so closely with Venus and Mercury retrograde.

PISCES February 18/19 to March 19/20

The start of May brings a sense of having made it over the hump, especially so as of May 3 when the sun turns a corner with Saturn. Making trines to Pluto, both Mercury (May 2) and Venus (May 6) are on a lucrative track over this first week. You should feel you are investing well (re time, money, goals, and intentions).

Mercury enters Gemini on May 3. Venus enters Gemini on May 8. For the most part, both planets keep your day to day activities running along a smooth development track. More physical and social activity is good for the soul. Get out, enjoy some fresh air and company.  Both Mercury and Venus form trines to Saturn (May 12, May 19). You should feel that things are falling into place and shaping up well. Use May 12 and May 19 to solidify plans, talk, meet, interview for a job, sign a contract, take charge, make a purchase, cash in; to launch it or put the finishing touch on it.

As of the weekend of May 22, 23, it is time to shift gears. Don’t force what isn’t coming naturally. It’s a weekend to relinquish and relax. Have no expectations, take it play by play. Mercury square Neptune (May 22) and the start of Saturn retrograde (May 23) will clear away that which blocks the view. They set the stage for the total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius (also a super full moon) on May 26. You’ll feel the strongest impact of this super lunar eclipse if your birthday is on or close to February 5, or if the eclipse makes direct contact to planets in your natal chart. A next chapter is soon underway (perhaps you’ll experience it as fast-moving train.) The eclipse can se up a cash-in or a cash-out-and-go time – both are reward based. The eclipse can be fortuitous (catapulting for some) for career matters (a career high perhaps!), reputation building, promotional activities, teaching, lecturing, performing, higher education, mentorship programs. Travel or a move could also be in the works. Lastly, the eclipse could produce a departure or bring something or someone back into your life. You could re-meet with your recent or distant past (even the past of another lifetime). Remember if the eclipse makes a direct contact to the personal planets in your natal chart, it will jettison you over a significant karmic threshold. There’s more in the mix. Venus and Mercury begin a new cycle on May 28. Mercury in Gemini begins a three-week retrograde cycle on May 29. Present, past, and future are intertwined.
