Jupiter turns retrograde on June 15 until October 12 between 27º01’ and 26º40’ Aquarius.
These 2 degrees are symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by “a tree felled and sawed to ensure a supply of wood for the winter” and “ an ancient pottery bowl filled with fresh violets”. Our ideals and visions for the future carry a simple magic and a humble beauty. As we tap further into our inner wisdom gathered throughout the ages and initiations in past civilizations, we find within ourselves the resources that carry us through the challenges to come.
Neptune continues being retrograde this whole month at 26º28’-26º13’ Aquarius.
This is the same degree as Jupiter’s: “an ancient pottery bowl filled with fresh violets”. It reinforces that meditation and the dreams we have at night replenish and refresh our deepest knowingness. Our visions effortlessly inform our reality. Simplicity and humility are the emotions through which we naturally tap into the unknown and become the masters of our own destiny.
Pluto remains retrograde this whole month between 2º32’ and 1º48’ Capricorn.
The images corresponding to those 2 degrees are: “a human soul, in its eagerness for new experiences, seeks embodiment” and “three rose windows in a gothic church, one damaged by war”. This is a time of very deep renewal. No matter what our wounds are or our past “mistakes”, we can recreate a whole new dynamic in our lives. Through a different perception and a positive attitude, we can make much that went wrong, right again. As we refocus our thoughts, we manifest a different reality for ourselves and thus for others around us.

Our Intentional Meditation
Our intentional meditation begins on Sunday 6/7
Take as many blank sheets as you will have intentions and place them out (on a balcony, near a window or in a garden) to be charged by the Full Moon in Sagittarius at 11:12 AM. Once that exact moment has passed, gather your sheets and place them in a folder until the next New Moon.
On Monday 6/22 at 12:35 PM
Take out your Full Moon charged papers and write one intention per sheet, making sure it is positive and concise. Place your papers out to be activated by the New Moon in Cancer. Once that exact moment has passed, staple your sheets together, write the date and put them away, expecting a miracle.
Tuesday 6/2: Venus Sextile Neptune (8:55 AM), Venus Sextile Jupiter (4:40 PM)
Our emotions are enhanced today. We are positive, enthusiastic and idealistic. Our faith in the goodness of others and life attract many wonderful experiences to us. We feel happier than usual and more open to others. Our social circle is likely to expand in a way that creates new horizons in our lives. The people we meet today are either from foreign countries, well traveled, educated or of the same soul family. An excellent transit for artists who could be very inspired and are rewarded financially for their works.
Wednesday 6/3: Mars Trine Pluto (9:34 PM)
Excellent for athletes and the fulfillment of our ambitions. Leadership is now within reach through hard work, focused energy and much willpower. Our charisma, self-confidence and courage are enhanced by this transit. Our convictions impress others enabling our ideas to manifest into concrete reality.
Friday 6/5: Sun Square Saturn (12:11 PM)
We could feel a little “down” today. Best to focus our energy on organizing our papers and clearing our closets. A great day to restructure our goals and be clear on what in our environment still serves us and what doesn’t. It is important that we view ourselves and those close to us realistically. Changing what we can and accepting what we cannot, is a very positive use of today’s energy.
Saturday 6/6: Venus enters Taurus (2:07 AM till July 5)
During the next month, we are drawn to esthetics, peace and harmony. We are likely to want flowers in our home and if we have a garden, tend to its beauty. Nature replenishes our soul. Our senses are enhanced. We need the calm of soft music, the healing energy of loving touch and the soothing feel of nice fabric and perfumes. Massage, aromatherapy, sound and colors are appealing to us during this time. Money, in that it affords us luxuries, gives us a sense of security. A great period for a make-over and to renew our wardrobe.
Monday 6/8: Venus Trine Pluto (12:20 PM)
A very good day for financial transactions leading to increased security. Our intuition leads us to good investments. Spiritual regeneration inspires artists to deeper works. We are likely to be drawn to luxury and maybe even emotional excess today. Love is passionate. A romantic relationship started today is very transformative. It feels destined and enables us to reach a level of intimacy we may have never experienced before. In an existing relationship, there is a deeper commitment and renewed desire. Great for a memorable date.
Tuesday 6/9: Mercury Sextile Uranus (2:45 PM), Mercury Square Neptune (2:54 PM)
We could experience much loss of focus today either through impatience or day-dreaming. Best to beware of spiritual imagination. Channeled information should be treated with much discernment. Messages tend to be confusing and unclear. Misunderstandings could occur. Best to avoid jumping into conclusions without sufficient data. Not a good day for traveling, operating motor vehicles or anything involving communication.
Wednesday 6/10: Mercury Square Jupiter (8:34 AM)
We could be prone to exaggeration today. Scattered thoughts and impracticality create confusion. Our perception of reality may not be in alignment with the way things actually are. It is important to remain positive without overlooking any fact. Not the best day to travel. Best to postpone any legal transaction. Be particularly careful when driving.
Saturday 6/13: Mercury enters Gemini (7:47 PM) till July 3
During the next 3 weeks, we should feel more restless and curious than usual. We are eager to learn new things and immerse ourselves in varied topics of interest. Our social life could become more active and we are drawn to exciting, fun loving, positive, light people. Great for writing or lecturing. Wonderful for traveling.
Monday 6/15: Jupiter turns retrograde (0:51 AM) till October 12
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.
Wednesday 6/17: Sun Trine Neptune (3:47 AM), Sun Square Uranus (7:57 AM), Sun Trine Jupiter (7:29 PM)
A very interesting day. We could feel enthusiastic and inspired by spiritual visions, yet be too impatient to see things through the finish line. Because we lack staying power today, manifesting our dreams into reality could be a bit of a challenge. A wonderful day to dream big and open new spaces in our lives. Traveling could prove very inspiring as it expands our horizons in unusual ways.
Saturday 6/20: Sun enters Cancer (10:46 PM, Summer Solstice) till July 22
During the next month, we may feel more family-oriented and wish to stay home more. A great period in time to invite our friends over for dinner, to have home-based activities and to enjoy deeper relationships with children. We may want to start or take a cooking, photography or drawing class. We become more aware of what makes us feel nurtured as well as what brings us a sense of comfort and security. The past comes to the forefront.
Sunday 6/21: Venus conjunct Mars (6:10 AM), Venus trine Saturn (11:31 PM)
A great day to consolidate an existing romantic relationship. Fabulous to get engaged or enter a deeper sense of commitment. There is a good balance within and without between the feminine and masculine energies. We feel in harmony with the one we love. Those who are single, have a greater chance today of attracting a significant partner with whom they can look forward to building a solid future.
Monday 6/22: Mars Trine Saturn (7:45 AM)
Our energy is focused and grounded. Athletic endeavors are rewarding. Our physical endurance sees us through the finish line. Our ambitions are solid and structured. Today, our discipline is as powerful as our determination. We are particularly resourceful in achieving our goals and thus make significant progress in our career goals. Any project involving construction is very much favored by this transit.
Tuesday 6/23: Sun Opposition Pluto (0:39 AM)
Best to stay away from power struggles. Self-improvement is in the cards today. Many great accomplishments are likely to result from the willingness to cooperate with others. Egotistical tendencies as well as insensitivity to the needs of others should be watched for as they could lead to hurtful and mostly avoidable relationship break-ups. Not a good day for financial transactions involving other people.
Friday 6/26: Mercury Square Saturn (1:32 AM)
Delays in communication are likely today. Do your best to avoid depressing thoughts which would block your progress. Important to get sufficient rest and avoid falling into negative attitudes. A good day to restructure our work and reassess our short and long term career goals.
Wishing you all the best.
In Loving Light.
