* 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.

All three planets receive direct gaze from retrograde Saturn and Mars, adding pressure and heat to the mix.

Monday begins with a waning Moon in the eighth tithi (lunar phase) and transits Dhanishta nakshatra, the domain of the Vasu Devas. As Moon moves into Aquarius late morning, it moves out of the gaze of the other planets, a welcome pause from the previous days. The Vasu Devas bring their light, their desire and willingness to help us shine and be seen. How can you step out of your shadows and into the light?
Late evening Moon moves to Satabisha nakshatra and continues through this constellation on Tuesday. Varuna and Rahu are the rulers of Satabisha and though deep healing is possible here, it is usually a result of great difficulty, turmoil and challenge. Varuna brings a heightened awareness, which often translates as an intense critic. Be mindful of how your critic shows up today and what your relationship with it is. How can your critic help you identify your needs?
As Moon shifts into Purvabhadra nakshatra late Tuesday evening, our dance with balance becomes vital. This theme carries us through Wednesday as Ajaikapada helps us find a new sense of balance. Just after noon, Moon shifts into water sign, Pisces, joining moksha planet, Ketu here. Both receive the gaze of Rahu and Jupiter. Ajaikapada steps intentionally- one foot grounded and rooted, the other poised for change, transformation and the next step. Movement is an essential part of life. What are you moving towards? What are you moving away from?
Early Wednesday evening, the Moon shifts to Uttarabhadra nakshatra, forming a close conjunction with Ketu. Uttarabhadra and this close conjunction of Moon and Ketu carries us through the greater part of Thursday. Symbolized by the back legs of a funeral cot, Uttarabhadra offers us a strong connection of release, endings and letting go. Ruling deity Ahirbudhinya helps us to surf the depths of our inner tides. It's time to rip away the veils of illusion and dive deep. What are you learning about your inner currents?
Late afternoon on Thursday, Moon moves to Revati nakshatra, the final lunar constellation of the zodiac, with Sun poised at the edge of its exaltation sign, Aries. Sun jumps into Taurus at 21:43 PDT, joining Mars and Mercury here as well. A new cycle of Sun energy begins! All three planets receive gaze from Rahu and Saturn, adding stormy weather and the propensity for swift change and transformation in the coming days. This cycle of Sun offers us deeper grounding and support. Stability will be a top priority, while communication and expression will be vital to receive the nourishment we desire. Stand in your power, take your space, root and ground. Let your desires be known and ask for what you want. Be open to receive. How are you inviting in the abundance of life energy?
As Friday begins, Moon continues to move through Revati, Pushan's domain. He insures that our journey will be safe and fruitful, while offering us nourishment and support along the way. How can you invite in deeper fulfillment, vitality and assimilation of life? Late afternoon, Moon moves from the end of the zodiac, to the beginning, jumping into Ashwini nakshatra. Healing and rejuvenation are afoot. Let your evening be healing and creative.
The first half of Saturday is ruled by Ashwini and the Asvini-Kumara twins who provide health and well being through the creative arts and the healing arts. We can increase our life force energy through both of these resources. Rejuvenate and heal through creative acts. As Moon shifts into Bharani nakshatra just after noon, Yama offers us transformation in a different way. Restraint, restrictions and death are Yama's way of keeping us true to our dharma, our path. What do you need to cut out of your life in order to get closer to your truth? What essential ingredients do you need for a pure life?
As Sunday arrives, Moon continues through Bharani nakshatra, enlivening the themes associated with Yama. Late morning, Moon moves into Krittika nakshatra and the edge of Aries. Moon is in the final phase of the waning cycle, the 15th tithi. Agni is enlivened and the potential for transformation deepens. Are you allowing in change or resisting it?
Moon becomes exalted just before the new Moon and this swell of the emotional body carries us through Monday.
New Moon is Sunday, May 17 at 23:13 CDT while in Taurus and Krittika Nakshatra. New Moon in Taurus invites us to deepen our capacity to feel, to sense and to create from this depth of feeling. Moon exalted in Krittika nakshatra at the time of the new Moon intensifies this ability to sense and feel with razor sharp exactness. There is some emotional cutting taking place, a removal happening, a deep transformation within you. Pay attention to what needs to be removed and what you are inviting in.

Moon Mind :::
Moon in Taurus (its mulitrikona sign) and transits Rohini nakshatra the majority of the day. Ruled by the creator god, Brahma, Rohini exemplifies creativity and creative energy. Expect changes today- notice where you can make adjustments, re-create and restructure. Use your creative intelligence to find solutions. Think big. Moon moves to Mrigashirsha nakshatra at 21:20 CDT. The changes and flux continue- especially on the mental level.
Watch for creative frustrations and shifts today. When things don't seem to be going your way, see if there's a message that you are missing. Do you need to find a different way? Are you overlooking something? Don't push too hard, instead re-calibrate your efforts. Go for the nourishment and find the source of your creative energy. Soma rules the day, don't burn it up.

Tuesday 24th, Wednesday 25th
Moon transits its exaltation and mulitrikona sign, Taurus, on Tuesday and is in Rohini nakshatra. Rohini, is ruled by Lord Brahma (the creator god in the trinity of gods) who created the universe. Through his force and creative energy, creation continues. Your creativity may be at an all time high today or it could get swept away with "too much to do". Make it a point to use your artistic and creative skills today and channel the creative forces effectively. You may be feeling a sense of urgency or irritation with relationships- business and personal. Watch communication. Mercury is sandhi (in the gap) and moves to Libra at 19:47 CDT today.
On Wednesday, Moon moves to Mrgashiras ruled by Soma, the divine nectar of life. Let this week's theme of clearing and cleaning by the "winds of change" be activated with this nourishing star. Don't be surprised if it comes in the form of tears and emotional release. Channel anger so that it doesn't destroy you or someone else. The heart is especially involved with today's experience. Nurture and protect it.
