Astrological Timing for Success – June 2009

This month begins with the Sun and Moon in friendly flowing trine while Venus shines brilliantly in the evening sky. Evening Star Venus is in full power sailing high Out of Bounds North aligned with Sirius, the brightest and most powerful star in the heavens. Venus is now empowered to restore natural law and divine order on Earth.

In the first half of June she presides over the death, rebirth and healing of the king and the order of things in the world. After this (beginning June 15) she emerges as the radiant, benevolent goddess of love. Businesses and organizations are successfully organized / reorganized in the first half of June, relationships flourish in the last half of this month.

The joining of Jupiter (the King) and Uranus (Prometheus) in the first degree of Aries on June 8 signals a revolution in consciousness and the emergence of soulful leadership moving toward a great social renaissance in the months to come. Directly opposite Jupiter/Uranus, Saturn is now moving forward building new systems and organizations in harmony with the newly emerging Aquarian consciousness.

By the Summer Solstice/ Mid-Summer/ Full Moon June 20-26, all the bars will be down and the way clear moving forward. This is the time to leap Mid-Summer fire to shed shadows of the past and free the soul to be fully embodied in this wonderful world.

June 6 – Creative Manifestation

Lucky Dream Moon

Morning Moon close by Jupiter and Uranus (visible with binoculars) brings super magic possibilities portended in dreams. The Wheel of Fortune turns and all the planets align toward a positive outcome. Take a chance!

June 8-10 – Put Wishes on the Air

Balsamic Moon

Needs felt now invoke Moon Magic from the new lunar cycle. Also called Witches Moon, it is when wise women healers bring those who need healing to mind. Empathic feeling invokes healing.

June 10-11 (8:20 pm - 8:20 pm), Open to Receive

Gate of Inspiration

A Gate of Inspiration opens every 40 days beginning with Spring Equinox. Before each Gate, shadows arise to be dispelled. Breathe deeply and move freely to release body tensions that hold outmoded ways of thinking and feeling. As the Gate opens, new light pours through with new possibilities charged with creative energy.

June 10-13 (4:28 pm 6/10 - 12:39 pm 6/13) More Freedom & Imagination

Moon Out of Bounds North

This time is ideal for new business ventures or for special social gatherings. Share opportunities, make announcements, do a promotion or bring a new discovery to light. Breakthroughs occur Friday evening as the Moon sails high over Orion.

June 11-13 – Time to Look Within

Dark of the Moon

While unfavorable for most outward activities, this time is ideal for our inner work and house cleaning/clearing for the new lunar cycle. The ‘Out of Bounds’ New Moon (7:15 am June 12) seeds Magic through the lunar cycle June 12 - July 11.

June 13-17 – A Time to Sow

Crescent New Moon

The New Moon tide energizes whatever it touches; this is a time to bring forward what we wish to be realized. Anything is possible now. Moon magic is strongest between Sunset and Moonset when the Moon shines through the 7th House. Venus with the Crescent Moon is a boon for Love.

June 18 (9:07 am)-Cosmic Balance Time

Moon at the Equator / Lunar Zero Point South

0 South is good for surrendering to spirit before entering the under world in quest for vision. The magic portal opens for two hours 8:07– 10:07 am.

June 18-19 – Let Go of the Old, Power the New

1st Quarter Moon

This Moon is like a scythe cutting across the sky signaling a time for decision, a time to cut free of the past and affirm a new life direction. Choices made now favor success in all quarters.

June 21 (exact 7:30 am) Free the Soul!

Summer Solstice

Solstice means “still standing Sun.” The Summer Solstice continues for 3-4 days culminating Mid-Summer’s Day June 24 when the Sun begins to move southward again. The key rituals of Summer Solstice are fire leaping and freeform dance. We jump a small fire (a candle will do) three times to release whatever you want to let go. Dancing clockwise around fire can clear astral shadows impinging on our realm.

June 23-24 Celebrate, Dance to the Music

Mid-Summer’s Eve / Day

Midsummer is the peak of the year "when magic is most potent and fairies become visible." Vital energy is most elevated in plants and trees and devas are more apt to be out and about. Snakes shed their skins at Midsummer and so can we by leaping fire and doing the dance.

June 23-26 (12:12 pm 6/23 – 3:17 pm 6/26) Renovate Your Inner World

Moon Out of Bounds South

Go beneath the surface and change habits. The best opportunity comes Friday evening as the Moon sails near the brilliant star Antares. This is a time to eliminate inhibiting beliefs and open our hearts for new light to enter. It is a time to awaken the inner child and set the soul free.

June 26 (exact 7:30 am) – Illumination

Mid-Summer Full Moon

Every Full Moon is a time of revelation. Meditation, deep breathing, music and dance help open to receive blessings. Spiritual energies flow through the three days following the Full Moon. Revelations come in dreams, chance encounters, and flashes of inspiration. In a year of great change, this Solstice / Mid-Summer is one of our best opportunities to bring the changes we wish/intend. It’s Moon Magic time!
