June 2016 could be a hectic month for everyone as Sun, Moon, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune form a Mutable grand cross on the New Moon chart, even though this Grand Cross will disappear after one week, its influence, like a solid imprint on the ground, will last for the whole month (lunar cycle). The New Moon chart gives astrologers an idea of what is going to happen this coming lunar cycle. In one way we can predict what type events are going to happen, and what we will experience. In another way we can adapt and prepare for what is coming up.
Moon Wobble and Neptune Mars stationary: An unstable situation
As the Sun squares the Nodal axis at the moment, it is Moon wobble time between 24th May to 14th June and globally we usually see a more than usual amount of disasters occurring during this time. Serious losses happen if there are other astrological indications that add to the instability during the Moon Wobble, such as outer planets becoming stationary. Neptune will turn retrograde in June and will be stationary between the 11th – 16th June at 12 degrees of Pisces. These days could be crucial times, important events and disasters are more likely to happen during this period. Neptune rules the Sea, Fog, Smog, Gas, water, what is in the Air, pollution, viruses, epidemics, chemistry and drugs. It is also related to the film industry and the the ups and downs in financial markets.
Mars will also turn direct at 23 degrees Scorpio by the end of June. It will appear stationary between 18 June to 11th of July. Mars represents dry and hot climates, heatwaves , fires or explosions, which may cause problems. Mars also represents riots, robbery, violence and War. As Mars is trine the centaur Chiron our symbol for wounds and healing in the New Moon chart and suggests more Mars-type events occurring during these dates.
Between the 13th and 30th of June Venus will also cross the boundary of the Zodiac to become out of bounds. When a planet is out of bounds, this suggests something related to this planet could become out of control and completely surprise us. We usually observe crazy trading with artistic commodities and products during Venus out of bound times, as Venus represents what we value and Art. Surprising news may come from the Art investment world.
Mutable Grand Cross in June 2016
Sun, Moon, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune form a Mutable Grand cross in the new moon chart.
A mutable grand cross suggests a highly unstable and uncertain time, like being at a crossroad and now knowing which way to go. There are so many choices to make, possible roads and rumours, lies and gossip to sort through. US presidential candidates Donald Trump campaign is a great example, it does not matter whether you like him or hate him, he is a greta example of this changeable energy, as he changes his mind quickly to adapt to a any situation and say what people want to hear. One moment he can support Transgender rights, the next moment, when facing a Christian run state, he will tell you that one should go to the toilet according their biological sexual identity. His idea to build a wall between the US and Mexico and kick out all illegal migrants who originate from Latin America, and then goes ahead and tweets that he “Love Taco’s “. His Sun and Moon are both in the Mutable sign of Gemini and Sagittarius and was born on a day of a Lunar Eclipse, highlighting his rise to fame in this political race. I am not predicting whether he is going to win the election or not, just want to point out how he represents and even embodies the craziness current outer planet configuration in the mutable cross.
If we examine the planets involved in this grand cross we can better understand the areas where we should be most careful. The Sun in mundane Astrology represents leaders and celebrities. During this time they are representing the future that we are choosing, if we like it or not. What kind of society do you want to live in, for example in US: Neanderthal Trump style; Socialist Sanders style; or the ruling elite Clinton style. While in the UK there is a referendum for staying in or leaving the EU an d Australia prepares for another election on July 2nd. Neptune represents fame, popularity and celebrity, and shows more sor how we could be more confused and mislead by our leaders and become victims of what they stand for.
The Moon represents the common people, those who will be forced to choose sides. The Moon also represents females (together with Venus) suggesting a female person could become a scapegoat during this lunar cycle. The Moon represents agriculture and both the Moon and Neptune also rule the tides and the ocean. Agriculture and fishery businesses could also face huge challenges. Jupiter represents higher education and airlines where we can also expect downturns, closure and confusion in these areas. The Jupiter Saturn aspect suggests we are at the turning point of social developments as Venus, Jupiter and Neptune all bring a dose of generosity, and ask for us to work together during these critical economic conditions? How do we share limited resource in this world? Social benefit policies, wealth inequality, migrant and refugee issues will be focussed on by the media during this month.
