5/28 :: Sun (essential Self) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility):
With this energy, it is best to understand that you will have two distinct pulls within – obligation to others versus responsibility to Self. It’s not nearly as bad as it feels, however, it does bring up something we all work really hard to balance to some degree or another – SELF & OTHERS. How much do you owe your Self and how much are you obligated to others? Balance and reciprocity come to mind as guides. One of the challenges of this influence is making negative assumptions that there is no support for you when in truth, you haven’t asked for any and *help must be invited*. Saturn brings up our relationship to Time, and some people may feel restricted, as if life/other/outer is all too demanding and there’s never any time just for the individual. This activation is a push to grow. It’s time to hold your own structure in some way and reclaim your Inner Authority (also Saturn’s domain) in order to direct your own life. Others may find their lives falling apart because they have avoided responsibility for so long and now there’s no more “wiggle room”. Rather than have a meltdown, take a nap and resolve to wake up with a plan, a strategy for taking the next step, even if that means simply asking for help or guidance from someone older and wiser. It’s time to deepen your dedication and commit to your Self in a whole new way. Recognize any current limitations and work with the resources at hand for now. The Sun usually illuminates the core essential nature or Self, so see where you may be stuck and need to break out of a rut of some sort and trust that taking charge and making a decision or choosing a direction is *inviting help* from the Universe to support your forward motion.
6/2 :: Venus (values & priorities) ~trine~ Neptune (faith & spirituality):
This is a very supportive energy for dreaming your world into being! Allow your imagination some latitude to wander and see where it leads. Play with “what if” scenarios. For example, “what if” all your material needs & desires were taken care of, what would you dedicate your time, energy & resources to? You may be very empathic and connected to others and what they are going through at this time, so maintain adequate boundaries for you. Neptune can activate a very spiritual encounter with another human being (friend, family or lover) but only time will tell if it is Neptune playing tricks on you or if it is truly a spiritual connection.
6/3 :: SAGITTARIUS Full Moon:
Essentially, we are supported to do some process, assimilation & elimination exercises. Now it’s time for you to integrate what you’ve experienced as a true knowing and earned wisdom. If you do not integrate the changes that you’ve been through, the choices you’ve made, the knowledge you’ve learned & the wisdom you’ve earned, then they never convert from ideas-to-bricks in the Base that supports you, that foundation of your own creation. Many will stay in ‘overwhelm’ or go even deeper at this point because this much information, that does NOT get filed or deleted, WILL overwhelm the system. Gemini Time (May/June every year) is a good time to review & explore the ideas, concepts & perceptions that have been revealed over the last 3-6-9-12 months. It’s good to note that next month (Cancer Time-July/Aug) the ‘fundamentals’ will be UP again. You are supported to review which of the ideas that come up now will actually nourish, support & protect you going forward. Choose ideas that have life & vitality, choose ideas that *feel* right from your Heart-Center, choose ideas that expand your life, rather than limit, pressure or violate it. Simplify, prioritize, RE-allocate your resources and RE-direct your energy, consciously, so that you are not a victim of the energies swirling around you.
I would add that we are being pushed to complete something and sometimes, that can activate a test of faith on one or many levels. What do you truly believe in your heart and soul? It seems that we *Seeded* some aspect of the Garden in early May, and now in early June, we have to surrender & trust that Great Spirit will breathe life into the seeds that got planted. What *seeds* have you been sowing & cultivating? Keep in mind the intense Water/Feeling Energy, as well as the Taurus/Scorpio energy that preceded Gemini/Sag now, because power & practicality continue to leap to mind, as does ‘willing sacrifice’ (for the greater good of all involved). What belief or thought can you release so that something of greater value can be Lived ~ Experienced and Expressed!?!
The energies of this Summer are giving us an opportunity to clarify our thoughts, explore the new ideas bubbling and dream up new ways of expressing ourselves as individuals going forward. But pace yourself, this is only the first baby-step on a major New Path!! We will be expressing some new ideas & thinking (thanks to the recent Mercury Retro), and this Full Moon can help us release anything no longer *true* or no longer part of the New Story that you want to tell going forward. Try to schedule some down-time in June/July & August if/when possible, even one day can feel like a week’s vacation if you really give your mind and body a rest in favor of pampering your heart and nurturing your soul. You’ll feel *loved* by YOU if/when you do this kind of self-care focus. Remember, everything is a response to the last thing and preparation for the next thing. Taurus/Scorpio activated the new power, values & priorities and Gemini/Sag will activate the new ideas, choices and Story, which will lead to renewing the fundamentals that Cancer/Capricorn bring around home & work or our public & private selves. The more consciously you navigate this period, the more fruitful your Fall Harvest will be this year.
