With the 2 of Wands, June is a great month to take an overview. Whether its relationships, career, finances or familial situations there’s a strong potential that in a short amount of time, they could take a turn for the better. Much better!
So prior to moving forward it’s good to consolidate the growth, to see where you’ve been, what you’ve learned and what it means to you.
Then make a plan. A sustainable, enjoyable, abundant personal and professional plan.
What has meaning for you? What do you feel deeply in your heart? What speaks to your Soul? Include that in your plan.
The reason we say overview is because the 2 of Wands usually indicates someone standing in a higher place such as a rooftop, mountaintop or treetop. Elton John wrote beautiful songs on the rooftop and Neil Peart, formerly of the band Rush, tapped into his wisdom as he hiked to the mountaintops walking off his grief after the loss of his beloveds.
When we can see further down the road we feel empowered about going there, about moving forward, about moving on. So making decisions to remove obstacles, such as wounds that need to be healed or behaviors that need to be corrected, really does put us on the right path. Compassionately confronting ourselves first means that thorny challenges get worked out internally, we don’t blame others and we begin to make progress.
Pain and fear have less of a hold on us and relief is in sight.
If we choose to avoid and run it only serves to increase the size of the obstacle or fear and can leave us vulnerable and in a disempowered mood. That’s the 2 of Wands reversed.
Look squarely at what bothers you, holds you back or otherwise causes problems and then solutions will begin to appear. You may find with the 2 of Wands that the obstacles may not truly exist now but simply be a by-product of the trauma of the past.
If there are obstacles, dealing with them clearly and directly will lead to satisfying resolutions. The Universe truly does have your back and that begins by your having your own back, in a simple and mature way.
All that’s required is that we be willing to raise our vibe and move toward a satisfying and fulfilling conclusion.
The worst that happens is that we forego our almighty ego for the blessings and gifts of a loving and true Spirit. Then you really can feel that the world is in the palm of your hands and you’ll be encouraged to leave the safety of the comfort zone for the open road of adventure. Spirit will not encourage that until your ready, so get ready.
Now on with the astrology for the month:
June 3rd - Full Moon in Sagittarius
Full moons tend to emphasize what’s meaningful for us and Sagittarius represents freedom, universal values and spiritual growth. The positive, is the freedom loving vibe of Sag, so you may have new visions of what really sets you free and a true desire to soar to the heights. The negative of our beloved Sag, is the tendency to avoid pain missing out on the rewards of real growth. Face the pain, it’ll be brief and the joy that follows will flow even more powerfully, than the river of tears you’ve cried.
June 11th - Pluto moves back into Capricorn until January 2024 (Then moves into Aquarius for about 20 years)
For the next 6 months, we’ll revisit the issues of the past 15 years with a deeper and truer desire for resolution. You can only rehash the argument so many times until it eventually dawns on us that no-one really wins an argument. However, because of the argument itself, we’re all lifted to a higher level of awareness and insight.
With Pluto, if you don’t gain the insight, especially about yourself, you lose the battle. The answer to this ‘final’ is that change is the only constant in life and that things won’t and can’t stay the same. It’s not, do you want to progress and move forward, it’s how, you progress and move forward. In this day and age of constant doing and egoic striving that’s a challenging one to figure out, so we want to share that pearl with you.
June 17th - Saturn Goes Retrograde
Saturn is the task-master, the teacher, the tough-lesson giver so this going retro until November 4th to me means revisiting our responsibilities and over-hauling how we handle them. You may find that you’re not responsible for things you previously thought, can release those burdens and new projects and challenges appear.
In short, work smarter not harder is the motto here. Learn, grow, be happy. Your responsibilities will match your capabilities perfectly. You won’t be given something that you can’t handle. You could also be wrapping up long cycles of hardship and this is the test to see if your willing to set yourself free or stay shackled to the suffering.
June 18th - New Moon in Gemini
My intuitive feeling is that this will be a beautiful new moon. There’s always a chance in our day and age that complications could occur but there seems to be a just a touch of intelligent magic happening here. Like the blending of ideas for better outcomes. I’m imagining the caduceus, the healing symbol of two snakes moving upward to balance the opposites. Ideas for healing will be pronounced and this is a perfect day for setting new exercise routines, sustainable and practical diets and overall improving your skill sets. If you’re looking for a magic carpet to ride upon this could be the day/days you find it. Intend to do more yoga and put yourself in the spiritual flow. Yes, that’s a shameless plug for Yoga Flow (not intended by them), but after all they are the best.
June 30th - Neptune Goes Retrograde until December 6th
Now, Neptune is the planet of spiritual awareness and awakening. Psychic visions could be very pronounced and you could feel compelled to connect with the cosmic consciousness for an extended period of time. This is lovely, beautiful and powerful. Commit to your meditations, write down your intuitions, ideas and visions for your personal inner work and don’t look to the approval of others. They won’t know either.
The word of caution is to not mistake your psychic leanings for truth before you’ve explored them. Neptune is also elusive, crafty and confusing. You could pick up on other lifetime experiences and project misgivings that aren’t accurate for the time, otherwise known as ‘bleed-throughs’ from other timelines being experienced by the over-soul. Practical plans could go awry so being fluid, flexible and patient will win you rewards. You won’t be needing psychedelics for this, that will feeling will flow naturally.
So to sum it up, Empowerment comes when we learn to deal with obstacles from a higher perspective with resolution being the goal. This liberates the energy that’s wrapped up in fear for psycho-spiriutal evolution through new visions of healing, responsibilities we feel capable of handling and actually feeling excited about opportunities and new beginnings. It might just all seem so simple after so many years of hard work.
