June Astrology

June 2021

Let’s See What Happens If We Do This…

We’re gonna try something different here this month, fitting given the astro-weather we are working with this June. We are mid-eclipse season Mercury is all over the place & things are a little wonky. Or downright off the chart. So we will be flexible & go with the feeling. What else can we do?

If June astro were a song…

…it would be Bohemian Rhapsody. Let’s take something traditional & turn it on its head. Then inside out. What about backwards, in a different colour? How is it looking now?

What we are looking at, feeling, hearing is…peculiar, no? Melancholy or frustration may be bubbling up from our inner bits over changes that we know, we just know, have to happen. Nervous energy, anxiety, eagerness to get going but who knows where, are shaking us to our core. This would be the two mighty celestial gods, Saturn and Uranus squaring off, again. They are mid-fight in their three bout 2021 smackdown & it is starting to feel imperative that we do SOMETHING. Disruption is necessary. The gift is knowing where the disruption will pay the greatest dividends.

Mid month we get a clear idea of where to place our bets. Mercury will step into the centre of the Sun, surely the most epic cleansing sauna ever!

Use this time to quiet the inner & outer chatter & really look at what is in your heart. Our inner truth is readily accessible at this time. Staying true to ourselves, with integrity, is never a bad move.

Communication is all over the place in June

Not only is Mercury retrograde in their home sign of Gemini until the 23rd June AEST, it is also irritated by the fog of Neptune. The Sun & Venus follow Mercury into the Neptunian mists, making the chance for miscommunications, mistakes & outright delusions very likely. Overthinking, check. Waking at 3am to overthink about something that happened two years ago & is no longer relevant to anyone but our 3am selves? Check. Again, a gentle reminder – personal integrity will make reparations to ourselves & others much more bearable once the fog clears. Neptune can bring insight, if you can keep the goals in sight. Don’t be surprised if the grind of the Saturn + Uranus square inclines one to reach for a daily nightcap or two (?!?) of relief in a glass etc until the end of the month when Mercury’s retrograde ends.

While we are drowning our sorrows sensibly imbibing & enjoying the spectacular sunsets of June, that rainbow on the horizon there?

That’s Venus and Mars moving into ever-loving Leo this month & sticking with the musical theme of this month’s astro vibe, Donna Summer’s oh so sexy ‘Love to Love You Baby’ springs to mind. If you don’t know it, you should. And when you do, you’re welcome 😉

Be well & stay stellar ✨


February 2021

February Astrology – Break on Through: Old vs New

The Major Astrological Event on everyone’s calendar this month is the looming tension between the mighty Titan, Saturn (Cronos) & his father, the Original Earth God, Uranus.

Exact on February 18th in Australia, this battle between the old ways & the inevitable new will stir up all kinds of emotions as the Moon brings up the deep feels. We know change must happen but feel restricted in our options. How to move forward through restrictions & constrictions, whether this will be external or internal will depend on how active this square is in your birth chart.

There is assistance available through the whole of February from a helpful aspect to Saturn from the centaur planetoid Chiron. When we see where we need to push through broken down structures in our life, kindly Chiron is ready to assist us in healing through educating ourselves or seeking outside counsel to shift what no longer serves us. Breakthroughs may not be gentle, but they will be just the panacea we needed. Even if we only realise in hindsight.

And there will be plenty of hindsight happening, with everyone’s favourite retrograde here again, already. Mercury will be moving backwards across the loaded Aquarian skies until 21st February. When the old Trickster goes retrograde through Air signs (Aquarius, Gemini, Libra), as it will for the next twelve months or so, we find our thoughts turning to how we communicate in our relationships – are we being heard clearly? Are we listening properly? Is there clarity in our words, our mind? Do we understand what we are being told?

Aquarius is a Fixed sign so there may be a few stubborn overgrown pathways that need to be cleared to find a less cluttered trail to walk on in our journey forward. Retrograde or not, forward is the only direction Aquarian energy is focused on. Get with the program by tearing it up & starting afresh.

After all this pondering about how we communicate, the best time to have any difficult conversations will come later in the month. By doing the work on ourselves first, we will be better equipped to deal with the outcome when we start to give voice to our new way of thinking, speaking, hearing. The future may look so bright we have to wear shades when we are in our own mind, but a gently, gently approach will work wonders in our conversations with others. If we run up against walls & boundaries at this time, then we must respect them. Not everyone will be receptive to lightening fast change.  

The end of February brings a sense of feasting & purging to heal & recoup. So much has changed in the last 12 months, more has meant less, & less is still more…the impossible happened & it’s finally feeling like the time to move forward. We have been waiting for 2021 to really begin, rather than 2020 lingering on & on.

Here is where it begins.
