Astrological Timing for Success – June 2012

The most Earth shaking events this month are the June 4 Full Moon Eclipse, the June 5-6 Venus Transit and the June 19 Solstice New Moon that aligns with Betelgeuse, the great star of transition into the New Age. June begins in an eclipse cycle that started with the May 20 Gemini solar eclipse and crests with the June 4 lunar eclipse in Gemini-Sagittarius. Something new is cooking through and there are many pleasant surprises in store for us after the June 10 Gate of Inspiration when the New Venus rises in the morning sky. All patterns of belief and being that impede the new coming through will be eclipsed in this 5/20-6/19 lunar cycle. Old patterns breaking free energy for new creation. A solar eclipse is a Super New Moon, a super new beginning that brings a great flowering when the Moon is Full. From this heavenly alignment and the June 5 Venus Transit - a Super New Venus! - the New World is born.

A New Venus happens every 19 months as Venus goes between Earth and Sun, A Venus Transit occurs when Venus crosses the face of the Sun. Venus Transits happen in pairs eight years apart about every 135 years, it is the second transit of the pair that brings great changes. The Gemini Venus Transit on 6/8/2004 marked the first point of a 5-pointed star formed in the heavens by the conjunctions of Venus and Sun. On 5-6/6/2012 Venus returned to where she began completing this heavenly star that signals the beginning of a new world. This second transit of Venus will bring great cultural, creative and spiritual changes.

New Venus brings new love, new grace, new beauty, higher truth and power to restore natural order. All illusions, trappings and attachments that keep from love and creative connection come up to be cleared June 2-9 when Venus is gone from the sky. This is the shift of the Ages, the convergence of cosmic cycles that brings global integration of consciousness and the fulfilling of prophecy, this is the time when the myths of all time come to life.

June 2-6 (exact 6/4 7:12 am) – Celebrate! Full Moon Festival of Humanity

At this Sun in Gemini Full Moon and lunar eclipse the spiritual wisdom of the 5/5 Wesak Full Moon is shared through the world. Mercury trine Saturn retrograde brings old world ways of the thinking to the fore to be eclipsed.

An eclipse is Mother Nature’s editing tool: when an eclipse occurs above, things get eclipsed below, outmoded patterns are let go. Each Full Moon is a time of revelation and opportunity for healing body, mind and soul.

June 10 (8 am 6/10 - 8 am 6/11) – Dance to Be Free Gate of Inspiration

Gates of Inspiration open every 40 days beginning with Spring Equinox.

Each Gate is the Station of a Muse. June’s Muse is “the beautiful voiced” Calliope, the muse of epic poetry. She says it’s time to speak our mind. Whatever inhibits free expression comes up before the Gate to be let go. Energy clearing is done through stretching, deep breathing and dancing (3 times clockwise opens the Gate).

June 10-12 (exact 6:40 am 6/11) – Realize Dreams 3rd Quarter Moon

This Moon cuts away all that distracts from putting dreams into action.  The 3rd Quarter integrates new ideas into creative expression; it's time to follow our bliss and do what feels good in concert with the whole.

June 14-17 – Make a Wish! Balsamic Moon

This is the best time to put wishes on the air and to bring to mind those who need healing. The deeper we feel, the more Moon magic is invoked for this new cycle. Shadows that appear before New Moon can be cleared with deep breathing while giving attention to the light within.

June 17-23 (exact 6/20 7:09 pm) Free the Soul! Summer Solstice

Solstice means “still standing Sun,” it is when the Sun rises and sets at the same place on the horizon. The Summer Solstice continues for 3-4 days culminating on Mid-Summer’s Day June 24 when the Sun begins to move southward again.

June 18-20 – Go Within Dark of Moon/New Moon

The day before the New Moon until Sunset a day after is ideal for psychic and physical house clearing to make way for the new cycle; outer activity is favored after the crescent appears. This Solstice New Moon (11:02 am 6/19) is a great cosmic spring that flows freely as we slow down.

June 21-25 – Sow Magic Seeds Crescent New Moon

This Moon tide energizes whatever it touches; it is the time to bring forward what we wish to be realized. New beginnings are well favored. Meditation now opens doorways, wishes take wing and prayers bring blessings through the harvest season.

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 elevated in plants and trees and nature spirits come out and about. Snakes shed their skins at Midsummer and we can shed old psychic skin through circle dancing and fire leaping. We

leap Mid-Summer fire 3 times (a candle will do) to shed past shadows and free the soul to be in this world. Shedding body armor this way clears inner vision so fairies become visible. Toning and chanting clear the throat and open the channel of new creation. Dancing Sunwise (clockwise) clears astral shadows that impinge on our realm, dancing widdershins (counterclockwise) then brings in the energies of the new creation.

June 25-27 (exact 11:30 pm 6/26) – Choose 1st Quarter Moon

This Moon is like a scythe cutting across the sky; it’s time to cut free the trappings of the past and affirm our purpose moving forward. Choices made now are likely to be the right ones. Breathing deeply through the light of the crown frees energy flow up and down powering our dreams to be realized.
