Monthly General Horoscopes - June 2017
While the year is moving on, Venus is a bit of a throwback in that she is still in Aries. Your birthday month is long since over and Venus herself returned in early February for what should have been a 24 day visit. Venus will return to Aries during, just before or just after your birthday month, never too far away from the Sun. Venus' job is to give your heart a voice and a say in what you want from your new solar year. Venus' job is also to define your romantic and relationship expectations. Venus returned so far ahead of your birthday month that she was forced to hold back and that is what prompted her retrograde phase. Just days into your birthday month Venus retrograded back out, only to return when it was over to start over again. This year's biggest mystery is why? Why was Venus in such a hurry to get to Aries so early in the year, reluctant to leave when she got here and then when she left, in such a hurry to leave. All those questions were answered last month, when Venus moved into opposition with Jupiter in your relationship sector and the North Node returned to your romantic sector, for the first time in 17 years. Had Venus moved through as she normally does the planet of love would have been long gone by the time a lucky and 18 month romantic adventure began on the 10th May. This also meant that Venus was the last planet to move into opposition with Jupiter. When personal and/or relationship tensions came to a head last month, this time it was between the planets of love and luck. Venus will finally leave Aries on the 6th June, just four days before Jupiter turns direct in your relationship sector. Her job done and with some special times on the romantic and relationship fronts stretching out in front of you, the planet of love can move on.
Moving into June and finding Mercury still here is not that unusual, especially as he is in his final days. While your birthday month ended on the 21st May, it is common to find Mercury and/or Venus staying behind in order to help tie up loose ends. What is not the norm is to find that Venus hasn't even arrived yet. Held up by a retrograde phase, Venus will finally return to Taurus on the 6th June, a day before Mercury leaves on the 7th June. Venus wasn't here during your birthday month, wasn't here during the six weeks Mars spent fuelling your passions and fighting spirit or the three months Ceres spent getting to the heart of your real needs and priorities. However, Mercury spent time with each and in the 15 hours they will spend together, there will be an information dump taking place. All the information Mercury is holding in your head will be transferred to your heart. For the first time since your birthday month and new solar year began, your heart is finally getting its say. Not due to leave until the 5th July and with so much already set up, Venus can help you pick and choose what you want from this new solar year. In the meantime, Mercury will join the Sun in your income sector, where Mars is also spending the days of the month before leaving on the 5th June. Again, what has happened with your birthday month is happening on the income front, with Venus not returning until next month to bring the opportunities home. This will be a trouble free month for you and Venus, though financial tensions might run high at times. That will be especially so in the early days of the month, again around the time of a Full Moon on the 10th June and in the days leading up to the Sun and Mercury's departure from your income sector on the 21st June. However, this will quickly turn into motivation.
For the third time in as many years you've moved into your birthday month and new solar year with Saturn on the other side of the sky, in opposition. While you have learned to stand up for your personal needs by now, a balance between them and your relationship needs will still play out. This year you have Mars on your team, with his opposition with Saturn late last month bringing any personal and/or relationship tensions to a head. This is already easing back and apart from in the lead up to a Full Moon on the 10th June, it should be trouble free until the final days of your birthday month. However, with Saturn leaving your relationship sector in December and not returning for another three decades, this is one last push to address any balance issues. The advantage that you have this year that you haven't had in other years, is support from the communication gods. So much so that this could lead to some communication and/or relationship breakthroughs. In the meantime, June could be a lucrative month and a gateway into lucrative months that stretch out to September. The Sun's return to your income sector on the 21st June will always turn the solar spotlight onto your income situation, matters and options. However Mars' return on the 5th June will give the warrior planet of the cosmos a 16 day jump on a more objective approach to income matters. Mars arrives with a sledgehammer in one hand, a battering ram in the other. From the get go he'll declare war on glass ceilings, especially those in your own mind.
June or at least the first three weeks of June is normally a quiet point of the year for you, with the wind down of your old solar year bringing a chance to cruise in life's slow lane. There hasn't been much chance of that this year, especially with such an active professional year. With Saturn in your work sector since 2014 and Uranus in your career sector since 2010 you're used to having your work and professional hats on all year. However, apart from an active push on the job front in November and December and another on the career front in March/April, this usually eases back to a long term focus. The focus on career matters centres on the Sun's move through your career sector from around the 20th March to the 20th April, give or take a day each year. Because Venus and Mercury, who travel with the Sun, don't adhere to such a strict schedule, this can often see career matters kick off in February and continue through to April. However, this year the active push began in December and doesn't end until Venus finally leaves your career sector on the 6th June. This has made it hard to spend any time in life's slow lane, let alone find time to hear yourself think. However, you have had one champion and this is the reason for any work tension and job pressure late last month. In the final weeks of a two year Mars cycle, Mars has confronted Saturn, over in your work sector, demanding that you pace yourself. Tensions will each back when Mars leaves a nostalgic part of your chart on the 5th June, but his return to Cancer will see the pace of life in general pick up. With little time for life in the slow lane this year, heed the messages of the past few months when it comes to work/life balance and working smarter.
You should find June a lot more manageable and also a balanced month. This is mainly because of the way the chips fall in that they are naturally arranged in a way where things are naturally balanced. For example, while Venus' return to your career sector on the 6th June will kick off what could be the most auspicious month of this professional year, not a lot of hard work will be required. A parade of planets began moving through four months earlier and for the most part all the hard work had been done. With Pluto and Juno both in retrograde motion in your work sector the pace on the job front has eased back. The reality is that Venus is not a planet that favours hard work and more likely to attract opportunities and see the things you've been working towards for months, start falling into place. June is also a naturally socially geared month or at least the first three weeks. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of June in your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking. This is in the lead up for the month long wind down of your old solar year, which begins on the 21st June. However, there is likely to be a desire to pull over into life's slow lane long before that, due to Mars' return to a nostalgic part of your chart on the 5th June. This brings the wind down of a two year Mars cycle, in the lead up to Mars' return to Leo on the 20th July. Where Mars is going to be is in the busiest part of your chart, but for the majority of the month the warrior planet of the cosmos will be putting up his feet, recharging his batteries ahead of a new Mars cycle, that begins next month.
June is always going to be a professionally focused month, due to the fact that Mars will always spend the first three weeks of June in your career sector. Apart from Mars kicking things off a month earlier, returning exactly a month before the Sun's return on the 21st May, it is the outside support that makes this visit so game changing. For the first time in 36 years Mars returned to your career sector on the 21st April to find Jupiter in your income sector. Now, as the South Node spends its first full month in your work sector in 17 years this create a pool of resources across the income, work and career fronts. Mars will leave your career sector on the 5th June and the Sun and Mercury on the 21st June. Mercury doesn't return until the 7th June, so this will be a short visit aimed at helping you make choices, decisions and plans. However, the one planet that will not only stay on all month but will still be here when Venus returns to your career sector on the 5th July is Ceres. Ceres is making her first visit to your career sector in four years and has teamed up with Mars for the first time here in 23 years. Ceres' job is to look beyond what you think you want, fostering a need for a sense of purpose, a sense of fulfilment and a need to make a difference. With so much support across the income, work and career fronts, if you are to make any major professional shifts over the coming months, this could be in a radical new direction. In the meantime, life is unlikely to be all work and no play. This is an especially fun and adventurous month, as well as an important month for home, financial and income matters.
A lot of things will start falling into place this month, but more importantly the personal and/or relationship tensions that have dogged the majority of the year are for now behind you. Yet this isn't just a case of finally waiting until they passed, with a very real chance to have achieved some breakthroughs. This all came down to last month's opposition between personal and relationship forces. This was less about the 'what' and all about the 'who'. The 'who' was Venus, who finally wraps up an epic visit to your relationship sector on the 6th June. It was Venus who moved into opposition with Jupiter last month, in the final clash between personal and relationship forces. Venus may have been advocating for your relationships and as the planet of love and guardian of your relationships this would have been a spirited defence. But at the end of the day Venus is your ruling planet and she will also back you. This means you have a horse in both races and with support from Saturn, in retrograde motion in your communication sector, a real breakthrough was finally possible. As she leaves your relationship sector on the 6th June she'll hang up her planet of love hat and done her planet of money hat, as she returns to work her magic on the financial front. Venus will return just a day before Mercury is due to leave, giving you the benefit of a smart head for money from the get go. Jupiter's direct turn on the 10th June marks an important personal turning point, with a chance to turn and face the future. This comes in a month full of adventure and even new career developments from the 5th June.
Venus' departure from your work sector on the 6th June might take your heart out of the game and bring an epic visit to a close, but this is far from the end of the story. A strong partnership of income, work and career forces have built up around Venus that leaves you with a lot of confidence. As The North Node spends its first full month in your career sector in 17 years, this has opened the door to a new 18 month period of growth and fateful developments that will take until November 2018 to run its course. With income developments continuing to unfold until December and job developments until March 2019, this has now taken on a life of its own. Yet these are major forces that are playing a long game and Venus' departure means this won't have such a narrow focus. Venus will turn her attention onto your relationships, where she has some making up for lost time. Until he leaves your relationship sector on the 7th June Mercury, planet of communication will work to ensure the communication lines are open. This will ensure that when Venus returns on the 6th June she has the best possible start. This opens the door for what is destined to be a special month for relationship matters. This comes in a month where there are some fun, playful and adventurous forces developing. With Venus gone from your work sector you might finally be able to find the right balance between work and play. You might remain just as busy, but life won't seem like the hard work that it has been over recent months.
There should be no problem finding a balance between work and play this month, despite the fact that what could be the best month of the year for work and job matters begins on the 6th June and runs to the 5th July. That is because much of the hard work, the setting things up and putting in the effort to get all the pieces in position, took place over the four months leading up to this. What I'm talking about is Venus' return to your work sector. Venus has managed to delay her return until after much of the hard work has been done, but in time to reap the rewards. You can expect things to flow freely on the job front and even to attract both new opportunities and some lucrative income developments. There was never any danger of playful forces going off the boil, but as the North Node spends its first full month in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery in 17 years, there is a new sense of adventure in the air. While there is the potential for travel and exciting adventures over the next 18 months, with the element of fate involved there is a need for spontaneity. Because Venus is offering much on the job front and demanding little in return, this is a month where finding the right work/life balance and a balance between work and play won't be a problem. There is one balance issue that might require more work and that's a balance between your personal and relationship needs. Fortunately the South Node is spending its first full month in your communication sector in 17 years. June is the month when the spotlight is always on your relationships, but very rarely is there any kind of communication support.
Just looking at the line up of positive influence this month begs the question, how are you going to find time for it all? Fortunately the work/life balance lessons of recent months will start to pay off. For what you have is a stunning month for matters of the heart, an important month for relationship matters and an auspicious month across the income, work and career fronts. There should be some real balance issues, but that is unlikely to be the case. When you factor in all that you have learned about work/life balance, there is no reason why you can't have it all. Even the work tension and job pressure that came to a head late last month was a call to pace yourself. Mars is part of a wave that is firing things up on the job front, at a time when Saturn is policing a need to pace yourself. This is important, for while Jupiter's direct turn in your career sector on the 10th June brings you to a major turning point in your professional year, the planet of luck and expansion has to come to a standstill in order to make that U turn. Part of the incentive to work smarter is Venus. On the 6th June Venus, planet of love will finally return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, where for the next month she will make up for lost time. This might be a breakthrough month across the job and career fronts, but Venus is also making this one of the most romantically charged months of 2017. It all comes down to knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. Just a day before Venus begins her magic on the romantic front, Mars' return to your relationship sector on the 5th June opens up an important new relationship chapter.
While you have a busy, exciting and dynamic month, home is likely to be where the heart is. This won't take away from anything else and if anything, this will make those moments when you are home all the more special. It is on the 5th June that your professional year finally fires up, with Mars' return to your work sector. This marks the start of a developing situation on the job front that will flow into some major developments on the career front in October. What you can't know in the early part of the month, is that once things start to move professionally they won't slow down for another three years. Make the most of a chance to catch your breath at the start of the month and in particular Mars' final days in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. The Sun and Mercury will continue on from where he leaves off, but with Mars returning to fire things up on the job front, this is when you'll need to get serious about a balance between work and play. Yet off on her own tangent is Venus, who finally returns to your home and family sector on the 6th June, where she'll stay until the 5th July. This is the reason why home is likely to be where the heart is this month and with life becoming a lot busier, she will spend the majority of the month turning your home and family life into your castle and your sanctuary. There is nothing more pleasurable than getting home after a busy day and relaxing into all your familiar routines and rituals. If you have enjoyed them before you'll enjoy them even more once Venus is on board and even more as life becomes busier. Jupiter's direct turn on the 10th June will also guard against life becoming all work and no play. This will take the planet of luck and expansion into his final months in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery and he'll be determined to make them count. Start the month believing you can have it all.
If things got a bit tense late last month, for the most part the professional pressures and work/life balance tensions won't follow you through. However, a need for work/life balance will remain. It was late last month that Mars, in his final days in your home and family sector, moved into opposition with Saturn in your career sector. This was an unstoppable object colliding with an immoveable object. These are not planets that compromise, unlike other conflicts between your home and professional lives this month. Yet the reason Mars wouldn't back down will become clear when he returns to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 5th June. June is a huge month across the income, work and career fronts, with forces in play that will continue to develop for months. Where Mars confronted any work/life balance issues head on late last month, he also knew it was essential if you were going to find a balance between work and play. This is the first planetary activity in this fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart since mid 2017, with Mars joined by the Sun and Mercury on the 21st June. With Mars not leaving until the 20th July and a parade of planets moving through over the coming months, this is no flash in the pan. Knowing what was coming, it's not surprising that Mars forced you to confront work/life balance issues. It starts with believing that you can have it all and that life doesn't have to be all work and no play. Mars will return to fire up your romantic and creative passions. It's time to bring the fun, colour and passion back into life.
