On Sunday, June 18th, Mercury in Gemini opposes Saturn rx in Sagittarius at 3:07pm EST. Decision making will be key over the next two days or so, and Saturn is demanding that you choose wisely. Don’t sweat this transit too much, since Mercury in Gemini is well-armed with facts and opinions, but it’s possible you might feel pigeonholed into having to choose between options you don’t like. The energy from this transit can be used to get things organized and grab ahold of your ambition, just be discerning about where you place your mental energy.
The Sun enters Cancer on Wednesday, June 21st at 12:24am EST. The Sun’s movement into cardinal Cancer marks the summer solstice in which the Sun is at its highest peak and will continue to decline until it enters Capricorn for the winter solstice in December. In Cancer, the Sun sheds light on our emotional well-being, home, and family life. It embodies the feminine divine that we all have, and it rules our intuitive sensing. Over the next month or so, you may feel emphasis that the Sun has in these aspects of your life depending on where Cancer falls in your natal chart.
Mercury is not too far behind the Sun, and changes from Gemini to Cancer shortly thereafter at 5:57am EST. Mercury is out of bounds at this point, high above the Sun’s orbit. In Gemini, it is able to look out objectively, but as it transitions into Cancer and embarks on its descent closer to the Sun’s orbit, communications become more instinctual and intuitive with a sense of urgency to get things done. Your gut responses may feel strong following this change of sign, so know that they are in tune with your inner energy.
A Full Moon in Cancer takes place Friday, June 23rd at 10:31pm EST. The Moon is the ruler of Cancer and therefore is in essential dignity. During this Full Moon phase, it is able to function to the best of its abilities. The Full Moon in Cancer instinctually sends us back to our home or a place where we feel secure and comforted. Those who are Cancer or water dominant may feel great pleasure in being a homebody and sprucing up their personal space. Emotional connections will take precedence during this Full Moon, so don’t be surprised if you feel compelled to reach out to loved ones or those who are important to you during this time.
Venus in Taurus trines Pluto rx in Capricorn for the first time in 2017 on Saturday, June 24th. With the trine energy, these two planets will work together. Venus in Taurus is in essential dignity and at the height of her feminine and sexual expression. With a trine to Pluto, a planet notorious for the darker side of sexual pursuits, Venus is set up for some serious attraction and lust today, but know that any trysts that come of this trine may not necessarily stand the test of time, as Pluto loves to break things down in order to start something new. Enjoy the energy and sexual release if this transit finds you today. This is also a fantastic transit for business and leadership endeavors, just know that they may eventually morph into something very different from what they first started out as.

Mars enters Cancer on Sunday, June 4th at 12:16pm EST, heightening emotional awareness and tendencies to react instead of initiate. Fiery Mars is in Fall in watery, protective Cancer, so it is challenged to perform at its best. The take-no-prisoners attitude of Mars is watered down by this transit. While this can result in some softening of harder characteristics, it also can result in feeling insecure or weak. The upside is that Mars in Cancer also compels us to take care of business related to our homes and families. Don’t be surprised if over the next 6 weeks you embark on some home improvement projects or are extra involved with family activities.
Tuesday, June 6th is charged with super powerful and positive energy as Venus moves into its home in Taurus at 3:27am EST and Mercury moves into Gemini at 6:15pm EST. Both planets will be in essential dignity, so they are empowered to perform to the best of their abilities as long as you let them. Venus in Taurus helps facilitate smooth relationship interactions, business transactions, and positive self-image and self-esteem. Mercury in Gemini gets our mind running with sharp quips, quick decision-making skills, the ability to analyze, and smooth communication. The combined energies of these two planets in dignity complement one another quite well, so enjoy!
On Friday, June 9th the Full Moon in Gemini occurs at 9:10am EST. With malefic Saturn rx only about 5° from the Moon in Sagittarius, this Full Moon is bound to feel more intense and serious than usual. Luckily, Jupiter rx in Libra moves direct shortly after the Full Moon at 10:03am after about 4 months of being retrograde. This direct movement lays a blanket of positivity over the Moon and Saturn in Sagittarius since Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sag. Thus, realizations you have during this Full Moon period may be hard or uncomfortable lessons to learn, but coming out of them you have the ability that they are for your betterment.
