This month is all about joy, love, union, imagination, and inner peace, all of which we can achieve by taking responsibility for our choices and our energy. So as we welcome a new season, breathe joy and life into your passions so you can bring them into union with yourself, become more in sync with your body, and elevate your energy. There may be moments when you feel you are just going through the motions and completely forget what your physical body is doing to support you in the moment. When that happens, take some time to connect with your heart and breathe from your soul.
This month our lunar energy will take things up a notch. We will take the steps that our soul and our heart have been asking for. As this month is the halfway point of 2021, it is a good time to ask yourself where you have been and where you are going. This reflection can help us set goals for ourselves and allow for a mini check-in with mind, body, and soul. Magic is ours for the taking this month, and it is up to us to decide if we are going to claim it.
Summer is officially starting this month. Hold onto your hats and sunglasses, folks, because we are in full retrograde season. Jupiter joins the retrograde party on June 20th and meets with Saturn and Pluto already in retrograde until October 2021. Mercury is in retrograde in Gemini until June 22nd. Keep in mind that the post-shadow phase of Mercury retrograde will be felt until July 7th.
Here are some other essential things to be on the lookout for this month:
June 10th—New Moon in Gemini: The Moon will be located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere. Gemini is referred to as the sign of the twins, and on this New Moon, Spirit shows us the opportunity to transfigure ourselves, to merge with our higher self and become one in mind, body, and soul.
June 10th—Annular Solar Eclipse in Gemini: An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon is too far away from the Earth to completely cover the Sun. This results in a ring of light around the darkened Moon. The Sun’s corona is not visible during an annular eclipse. The path of this eclipse will be confined to extreme eastern Russia, the Arctic Ocean, western Greenland, and Canada. A partial eclipse will be visible in the northeastern United States, Europe, and most of Russia. This is a special eclipse, as it is in the sign that the North Node is currently transiting. Spirit highlights that Mercury retrograde is also going to play an extra special role with this astrological event. The Sun and the Moon conjunct at 19 degrees, and Mercury in retrograde sits at 20 degrees. Even though it’s not an exact conjunction, it will be significant. Be extra gentle with yourself on this day and be sure to drink extra water.
June 21st—Summer Solstice: We welcome back the light! The North Pole of the earth will be tilted toward the Sun, which will have reached its northernmost position in the sky and will be directly over the Tropic of Cancer. This is the first day of summer (Summer Solstice) in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of winter (winter solstice) in the Southern Hemisphere. As the weather becomes warmer, what will you do when the waters of the Earth whisper your name for adventure to begin? Here is the link for more on the Summer Solstice.
June 24th—Full Moon, Supermoon in Capricorn: The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated. This Full Moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Strawberry Moon because it signaled the time of year to gather ripening fruit. This Moon has also been known as the Rose Moon and the Honey Moon. This is the last of three supermoons for 2021. The Moon will be near its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual. Spirit tells me that for those who are called for dramatic change, this is a great day to change up your hairstyle or get a fun wig and rock it. Also, make yourself a nice bath with your favorite relaxing things.
Remember when you were a child and it felt like summer lasted forever? Spirit would like to challenge you to do one thing this month that brings you joy and reconnects you with your inner child while doing it. Camping, watching a classic summer movie, or whatever that one thing may be for you, Spirit says just do it because you will thank yourself for it later.
