Jupiter stations direct in Libra on June 9th, the planet of expansion and growth has been retrograde since February 5/6th, we will be free to find balance and to move forward with our ideas and goals after this mighty planet takes his station to go direct. Neptune stations retrograde in Pisces, his own sign, on June 16th until November 22nd. We will delve deeper into our subconscious and question those beliefs that we have outgrown during this transit. Collectively we will do a lot of processing as stern Saturn and transformative Pluto remain retrograde throughout June. We feel energized and enthused as the month begins with Venus in Aries trine Saturn in Sagittarius on the 1st. The atmosphere becomes more erratic as Venus conjoins Uranus on the 3rd as the Sun trines expansive Jupiter.

Both Venus and Mercury enter their own signs, Taurus and Gemini, on the 6th grounding and stabilizing relationships. Release stern judgments and outmoded thinking as the Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 9th aligns close to Saturn. We can let go of baggage and prepare to move ahead as auspicious Jupiter stations direct and Venus sextiles Mars. We are triggered to embrace change as the sky is illuminated with a Grand fire trine between unpredictable Uranus in determined Aries, structured Saturn and the Moon in truthful Sagittarius trine the aspirational North Node of the Moon in fiery Leo.
