* Please note, the format for my horoscopes has changed. I will now be sharing in-depth monthly Horoscopes only. Thanks for following along.
June begins with a new Moon in Taurus, it's exaltation sign. Moon will be in strong degrees, in Rohini nakshatra at the time of the New Moon on June 4th. There will be confusion between inner and outer in the cycle to come, so finding balance between external needs and internal needs will be important for the first half of the month.
Mercury in Taurus
June 7th, Mercury shifts to Taurus, joining the heated dynamic of combust Venus and Sun who continue to track each other closely. Retrograde Mars and Saturn also give their gaze to these three planets, which causes heat and pressure to intensify.
Mercury in Gemini
As June closes, Mercury makes another transition, moving into Gemini- joining the combust pair Sun and Venus. Late evening on June 26th, Mercury shifts into Gemini, its own sign, marking a month long transit of mental body clean up.
Venus in Gemini
The heated war between Sun and Venus pauses as Venus shifts to Gemini on June 12th. As Venus enters a friendly sign, it separates from the fire of the Sun for a moment. Though Mars still gives his gaze to watery and creative Venus, he charges her up, rather than burns her out.
Sun in Gemini
Sun moves to Gemini, joining Venus here, continuing their heated battle between fire and water, precision and flow, human and soul needs. This cycle is a potent refinement process that will ask you to be get clear and focused about your desires.
Mars in Libra
On June 17th, retrograde Mars returns to Libra. Mars has been in retrograde motion since April 15th, transiting Scorpio with Saturn- who is also retrograde right now. Normally, Mars would be excited to transit his own, familiar territory, however, an intruder also occupies his home.
*Horoscopes are based on your Vedic (sidereal) rising sign. You can also check your Moon and Sun signs for further insight. Do the same with your Navamsa signs for further clarity. Do not use these horoscopes with your Western sign (Tropical) as there is likely no correlation. These horoscopes are meant to be used as a broad overview of the current transits and obviously do not address the specifics of an individual’s unique chart.
Aries: The past becomes present, the old comes back to the forefront. Remain present to the mirrors showing you what needs to be re-seen, re-noticed, re-evaluated- within yourself. You may gain inspiration and a new clarity about what you need and how you want it.
Taurus: The heat and passion in your head is creating steam and excess clouds. You may not be seeing clearly as a result. The tendency is to push or force outcomes and agendas rather than landing softly within. Pushing and forcing outcomes and steps doesn't guarantee a powerful outcome.
Gemini: The release process you've been going through is preparing you for the cycle to come. As Sun moves to your first house mid month, it's time to rise and shine. You'll still need to be taking extra time for meditation, pauses and rest with Mercury in your 12th house, but the tides are changing.
Cancer: Nourishment is a powerful, continuous theme that influences how you share and who you share with. Healing, change and transformation must take place in order for you to accept, invite and create space for the new. There's some resistance to the new, so be aware of where you are stuck.
Leo: Life is leaping ahead, but at what cost? Where are you present? Where are you checked-out? Relationships continue to be disconnected or more spiritually oriented. This is a time to be more focused on the self and to re-establish a new sense of Self.
Virgo: The deep transformations and release of this past month turn into wisdom and inner knowing this month. Suddenly more support and guidance arrives to help you learn and grow with new conviction and purpose. Clear away toxicity and liberate yourself from the people and things that dis-empower you.
Libra: Money, resources and nourishment seem to be challenged by lack of fluidity. Here today and gone tomorrow. This confusion with resources and comfort has been stirring the pot, increasing fear and pressure. What are these challenges teaching you about your needs?
Scorpio: The confusion comes from a restructuring of how you use your power source. You are no longer willing to force outcomes or force the process of outcome. It feels foreign, unusual, even lazy at times. But in fact, this is a vital emergence for you.
Sagittarius: Liberation is coming but not without effort and working consciously with your unconscious terrain. This becomes more necessary in the coming month so notice where you are stuck in limiting beliefs and old mental body programming.
Capricorn: Being dramatic with your cutting and clearing process is how you are creating a new baseline of stability and support for yourself. This doesn't come without pain and sadness, grief and loss. But in the long run, your awakening core wisdom is the catalyst for monumental change- inner and outer.
Aquarius: The refinement continues. Clearing away that which doesn't serve your highest good can be painful, especially when there's strong attachment. Your head is hot and getting hotter. Some relief comes early in the month once Mars returns to Libra. He won't be giving his gaze directly to your head.
Pisces: You are learning how to lose and let go, although reluctantly. It's vital that you clear up your gut and inner guidance system. Part of you is still not listening to this inner intelligence. It's time to sift your your unconscious terrain and re-pattern the places within you that keep going back to the conflict.

This Week's Intention: Start something and go for the gold!
On Monday, the week begins with four planets in Aries, just after the new Moon. Aries helps us usher in newness and beginnings as well as fresh starts. Moon transits Krittika nakshatra, offering purification and transformation. What are you starting and what are you leaving behind? Moon is now waxing, helping us to ripen the potency of this time so it can be illuminated in the coming cycle.
As Moon shifts into Taurus (joining Venus here) mid morning, it becomes exalted- in it's most expansive and expressive placement. Monday and Tuesday are extremely potent!
Akshaya Tritiya, the day of lasting achievement, begins late evening on Monday, April 20th and continues through Tuesday morning, April 21st. It is the only day of the year where the Sun and Moon are both exalted while Moon is in Rohini nakshatra and in the third tithi, tritiya. This is an excellent time to start something new and take a powerful action step forward! In the Vedic tradition, it is said that all actions will be fruitful on this day.
Wednesday begins with the Moon moving through the final portion of Taurus in Mrigashirsha nakshatra. Our creativity and nourishment begins to branch out. Expand your reach, connect and create in order to thrive more fully. Your action steps will determine the outcome of this. As Moon shifts into Gemini midday, communication and imagination are vital resources.

Power and potency arrive Thursday morning. Are you cultivating presence with your emotions or getting knocked down by them? As Moon moves through Ardra nakshatra today, it is important to work consciously with the emotional body- especially anger. Can you find the passion without getting burned by the flames?
Nourishment, support and increased knowledge come with Punarvasu nakshatra and its ruling deity, Aditi, on Friday. The Mother of all Goodness arrives with awakening and unification if we choose to accept her benevolence and expansion. To soften our experience, Moon shifts into its own sign Cancer, joining exalted Jupiter here, early in the evening. This theme of nourishment and support carries us through the weekend. Tend to your heart, home and emotional wisdom, let in the good feelings and let go of the discomfort.
Just as Saturday arrives, Moon shifts into Pushya nakshatra and the theme of nourishment intensifies. How are you getting your needs met? What is working? What isn't? Make sure self care is a top priority today. Spend time with water, earth and give special attention to you heart and home.
Early morning Sunday, Moon enters Ashlesha nakshatra and conjuncts Jupiter closely. This nakshatra is ruled by Sarpa, the mystical serpent, as well as the planet Mercury. Our mental body may spark extra emotions today so navigate your inner waters consciously. As Mercury becomes sandhi and nears the edge of Aries, extra attention to the mental/emotional balance is paramount.
Mercury moves to Taurus at 23:15 PDT, April 26th, joining Venus here in its own sign. Imaginal Mercury and Creative Venus do quite well together and invite inspiration and increased ideas to appear. We don't have to act upon every idea, but pay special attention in the coming weeks to those ideas that are worth activating. Once Venus moves to Gemini on May 2nd, these transits offer an exchange of signs (Venus rules Taurus and Mercury rules Gemini). Extra creativity is available to us and our relationships will be an important part of the creative process. Collaborate, co-create and communicate effectively what you need. Once Mars moves into Taurus on May 3rd, action steps become more important. Use this time to manifest your desires and put action behind them. Get what you want by saying what you mean and meaning what you say; then take it forth.
