The June 2016 horoscope shows us the presence of the Mutable Grand Cross

Hello people! What a significant month we have in our June 2016 horoscope, with a grand cross in mutable signs (involving heavyweights Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune in a configuration including a new moon [Sun conjunct moon], conjunct Venus) on the 5th. Whenever such configurations occur, you know there is a great deal of energy shifting and very significant new patterns being seeded. It is important to work consciously with the cosmic energies – not only will this be more productive for you, it will make experiences less unsettling. Working with energy, instead of against it, is one of the most important principles we encounter on the human plane – particularly if you seek to have personal mastery. Here are twelve sign readings, grounded in this aspect pattern on the 5th, to assist you in doing just that. Enjoy your June 2016 Horoscope, Alex ❦

Aries June 2016 HoroscopeARIES: “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush” isn’t a saying that we’d usually associate with Aries. We would expect instead that the spirit of adventure and your wander lust, would have you retorting that there are plenty of exciting bushes out there, within woods, forests and jungles… and you would be itching to explore them all! It feels like settling down would literally kill you off. Even when your body is tied to routines, we are likely to find your mind wandering to far off destinations, eager to explore the new and exciting possibilities waiting around the next corner. Yet there is something of an unrealistic assumption hidden within this driven nature of yours and this month you may gain some clarity on what that’s about. There are beautiful possibilities all around you – not just far away. It seems to me that the word ‘escape’ is one you should be exploring now. What feelings does that word evoke when you say it out loud? You are the possessor of a finite and limited body. You live within a neighbourhood. It is time to ask yourself whether or not your locality carries within it both the beauty and the possibilities for adventure (and surprises) that your heart so requires. This is not merely a cosmetic alteration, by the way. Your very health and daily existence will find a new expansiveness, if you can successfully re-draw your core values around what freedom actually means. Uranus in your sign continues to teach you this. Clue: replace ‘freedom from’ with ‘freedom to’.

Taurus June 2016 HoroscopeTAURUS: “Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body? I dunno.” We can thank The Smiths for that immortal line! With Venus in Mercury’s sign and Mercury in Venus’s sign (after a recent retrograde), it is a very pertinent question to ask just now. Taureans often have difficulty committing to a straightforward, embodied path. Even though you understand the indulgences of the body, wherever there is a specific decision to be made (which rules out others) and especially significant ones, you are likely to procrastinate. Your very values mean you are more concerned with actual losses than potential gains. While understandable on paper, this is a bind for you, since moving forward in the world ‘as is’ often means absorbing losses in transactions. You don’t much like loss! But you need to see that future gain (more than just materially) usually requires travelling light. Hoarding is actually a form of placing intellectual value on something that is a mere concept (or emotional indulgence), rooted in the past and lacking real value in the present. And of course, for the future to unfold, the past must slip away. This gets even more complicated when we are addressing material around shared resources and the deeper commitments they entail – reflected for you by Saturn’s retrograde motion in Sagittarius right now. A clue to sidestepping the old blocks now, is to think more in terms of adventure than careful planning – connection and beauty, more than attachment and practicality.

Gemini June 2016 HoroscopeGEMINI: “What is love? Baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more…” So sang Haddaway. it is a seemingly timeless lament. Its meaning for you, under the current astrology, feels rather like an issue of your Gemini ‘shadow’ legacy. There is always a risk with you of becoming ‘disembodied intellect’. The recent Mercury retrograde has seen you exploring issues of accessing the embodied qualities of your existence. Venus conjunct the new moon in your sign on June 5th, paints a vivid picture of a fresh cycle. Said cycle involves you experiencing your own attractiveness in a new light. The mind is busy… full of sparks and carrying an energy that applies a kind of filter to your bodily life. Sustainable attractiveness involves being at peace with yourself. Moreover, Saturn opposing the new moon suggests that you likely have seen authority and power (even dominance) as something outside of you and perhaps being imposed upon you, by partners – especially within your most intimate space. Should this have been your experience in the past, please note that the antidote is recognising your own authority – and this means facing all of your doubts about your own power. Being loved requires being sure of your own merit, owning that and attracting from embodied confidence. How you conduct your relationships within your personal space is a big part of this. When a partner comes into YOUR space, how does this feel? As calm assurance begins to replace agitation, know that you have turned a major corner.

Cancer June 2016 HoroscopeCANCER: Feelings and moods, driven by your ruler the moon, often deluge you. This can give you a restless quality – especially when the moon is prominent either in the sky, or in aspect to your birth chart. The new moon conjunct Venus, on 5th June, speaks of a balancing out of intellect and emotion. I get the feeling that when you were young, authority figures were able successfully to instil guilt within you – perhaps via religious mechanisms. Ever since, you have likely struggled with your emotions being tied explicitly to the needs of others. This can force your own feelings and needs underground. Acts of service to others can take on a devotional quality, seeming to embody a kind of spiritual virtue – without which we can feel not mere guilt, but also shame. Such can make anger about your own neglected needs, VERY difficult to access. There can be a “damned if you speak, damned if you don’t speak” feeling. Mars, having retrograded from your solar sixth to your solar fifth house (Scorpio) is now inviting you to have an honest conversation with yourself about your own needs and pleasure… and about the kinds of anger you may be harbouring about the seemingly endless sacrifices you may have made for the sake of others. Remember, vengeance can feel good, but it is no fun in reality! Consider this month, what fun may actually mean for you in the context of your current situation. Your anger is likely locked into your body. A sensual massage may help loosen it up but it’s your mind that must release it.

Leo June 2016 HoroscopeLEO: A stubborn desire to succeed drives you. Your career must be just right or you get restless – and there must be qualities of both appreciable value and beauty in it, as well as it being useful. It is amazing how much life force is taken up by the various urges which spur us on to overcome all obstacles we face. And it is equally amazing just how far being thrown continually back onto our own resourcefulness can turn us into confirmed ‘individualists’. The clear message for you this month is one about energy, blocks to energy and what makes your energy (in particular) flow efficiently and productively. You may be under the impression that technique and method, with a strong element of precision, focus and planning, are what will yield productive outcomes from your investments of time and effort. You may believe that improved discipline and better methods will be the way that you crack the nut of wastage you often experience with your time and resources. I am here to change your focus somewhat. All those things mentioned have their place, but more important for you now is a new cycle ushered in by the new moon, conjunct Venus. Collaboration is soon going to prove to be a huge turning point on your creative journey. This collaboration with peers has a pronounced local quality to it. You do not need to hunt far and wide to locate ‘co-creators’. These folk support your endeavours, not by doing anything in particular, rather just by being who they are in your life. You may come to experience them as ‘family’.

Virgo June 2016 HoroscopeVIRGO: It comes naturally for you to be ambivalent about your career. Part of you wishes for a stability and rhythmic predictability that simply allows you to put your head down and motor on with the jobs. Another part of you wishes to break out of the chains and constraints that such regularity enforces. You take pleasure in the finished outcome, the goal of your blueprint realised, but you dislike the drudgery inherent in much of the implementation. Close partners may have been urging you to break free, as they have witnessed your frustrations with workaday reality up close. Certainly, they would be in tune with the energies in the sky right now! Even if new horizons are not beckoning in your career, there is certainly an imperative to heal this ambivalence which so often tears you up inside. It may not be possible for you to drive forward career change at this particular time, Virgo. However, Venus conjunct the new moon suggests strongly that your approach has been too much tied up with frustrated life force energy in several areas. Instead, it is possible for you to have the realisation this month that you have considerable charm at your disposal… and that this charm is in fact a MUCH superior way of wielding influence from now on, within your vocational path, than worrying about the blockages that seem to be strewn along it. Virgo is a sign known for its susceptibility to being critical either of others or of itself. Venus says “live as though power were something exuding from inside yourself, not outside”.

Libra June 2016 HoroscopeLIBRA: What is your relationship to money? Or, more accurately, what has it been? Perhaps there was a time when scarcity was a religion and this led to a cautiousness, rather than expansiveness. Fear of poverty is a crushing task master, which can blight your life considerably. There seems to be some material within this equation about justice, equity and fairness. Your planetary ruler Venus, conjunct the new moon on June 5th, indicates the beginning of a different relationship to your resources – which comes directly out of a deep revision of your values around security in the material world. This question is always ultimately one about confronting our own mortality and having realisations that time and resources are precious – and cannot make the journey with us over the rainbow bridge. So, the time for enjoyment is now. The fear of anything is merely a recipe for shadow boxing with an elusive and unbeatable opponent. What makes any experience real is realising that every decision you make is important. It is crucial that you make each one count this month – especially when it comes to digging right down into the core of your deepest driving values. We rarely do this by choice. If any crisis is taking you there, remember that the karmic lessons are always there to take you to a new level of embracing the truth of your existence. That place is the one where you are truly free – where you have jettisoned all fears and decided boldly to live in the moment. Live this month, as if it were an opportunity never to be repeated!

Scorpio June 2016 HoroscopeSCORPIO: It is time to step up to the plate when it comes to your deeper commitments with the people you share your most intimate resources and infrastructure with. I think it fair to say that manipulative approaches (those you might describe as indirect, or even not exactly honest) are not well starred at this time. A new moon in your solar eight house offers the chance for you to wipe the slate clean, regarding any protracted dramas, which may have come at some cost when it comes to matters such as trust. Communicative issues of recent weeks, which may have muddied the waters while Mercury was retrograde, can now be addressed. To boot, your ruler Mars has retrograded back recently from Sagittarius into your sign. This suggests that your usual ways of driving your life forward have been coming against obstacles that have proven tough to overcome. Old ways which do not work should be discarded. Yet we know it is not quite so easy in reality. We are fond of continuing to bark up the wrong tree. How you invest your energy into life has a karmic resonance. It isn’t simply that you do something and then easily undo it. Certain words, once spoken, cannot be unspoken. Be VERY careful about the things you say in the heat of argument in the coming weeks – because it may let a genie out of the bottle that you cannot command back in, once released. Same goes for your actions. Hasty moves may come with no reverse gear possible. It is a time to seed a new way of being present in your relationships. The alternative is unsustainable.

Sagittarius June 2016 HoroscopeSAGITTARIUS: Peeling back an onion’s layers, we get to its core eventually. Often, on a journey of growth, we find ourselves embarking on such a stripping back and it CAN make our eyes water! Sometimes we must pause, so our eyes get chance to adjust. We simply can’t see straight with eyes streaming. Now may be such a time. There appear to be very deep lessons of patience for you on the table right now. You are usually driven to get out there into the world and make your mark. You aim for your target and go for it. The message you are being confronted with this June seems to be one about the differences between striving for the things which you desire and allowing those things to come to you. The latter is a form of magic which most people simply do not have access to. The principles in play are much like those which underpin Taoism. The master resides at the centre of the wheel… and allows everything to be as it is. This isn’t mere passivity. It is known as the doctrine of Wu Wei (‘doing by not doing’). I’d recommend you alter it slightly to reflect June 5th’s major astrological influences (Saturn, Mars, Sun, moon and Venus) to ‘being by not doing’. As you feel your way into this, you might find a significant application to your relationships – noticing that in the past you may have been too forceful, or overpowering, to keep the magic alive. In turn, your peeling back process may reveal the joy of balanced giving and receiving. Receiving is allowing. What has stopped you allowing in the past?

Capricorn June 2016 HoroscopeCAPRICORN: When we are little, our parents are very much like the gods – only they are MUCH more present. Some may even argue that the gods are simply formalised parental projections. Certainly, the authority they carry in our lives (which translates to power when we are small) is something which can imprint itself deeply upon our psyche. It is only when we try to take up our own authority that we encounter some of our deepest complexes. Make no mistake, these can become health issues very easily, ones which dog our day-to- day experience and hold us back. It would appear that a creative breakthrough is being heralded in your life that is closely associated with a mental clearing of this inner space. Your ideals are now taking on the shape of concrete plans and your creative vision is finally manifesting in your immediate world of connections. It is safe to say that you have, at last, outgrown your old limits – imposed by the parental gods. This is akin to when the koi carp outgrows its nursery pool. As the limits of the pool are increased into a pond, the carp grows to match the new dimensions. This metaphor is your clear message in June. You’ve made huge progress through no longer being defined by your perceived limits – as you approach the pinnacle of recognition, stay vigilant. Last minute doubts WILL arise… we call those dregs! Remember, this is about true health and vitality and it is about transcending your karma. Look around. It is exhilarating on the mountain top, is it not?

Aquarius June 2016 HoroscopeAQUARIUS: You have a considerable level of expertise when it comes to human nature. This has perhaps come at a cost of significant personal pain. You are a sensitive soul and so you mostly avoid the rough and tumble of human interactions. Still, you have a vision (a passion actually), for a more just society – one where everybody can find a home. You are well suited to serve in a leadership position, based on your considerable understanding of many aspects of society. My feeling is that your sense of vocation is undergoing extensive revision right now. Just because you are good at something, does not mean you should pursue it, though. At this time, it is important for you to move forward in reconceiving the space you call home. There are going to be changes coming thick and fast, over the next few months – and it looks as though you have been doing your preparation for this in recent weeks, by reconceiving your needs and values regarding those who are your true kin. Now, all this can be very heavy going. June heralds a time of new beginnings in that regard. This may come in the form of artistic departures, carefree romantic fun, or even preparation for the coming of new arrivals, or a fresh sense of joy in the children you already have. It’s important that you get the balance right between planning and really enjoying your core experiences. Down time is crucial this summer… and let me assure you that you richly deserve it – having laid your foundations diligently. Make ‘celebration’ your mantra.

Pisces June 2016 HoroscopePISCES: The details of a relationship may well be coming into sharper focus around now. These details would appear to offer some very favourable omens when it comes to offering foundations for a deeper commitment in the future. For now, simply go with the flow. Allow your relationship experiences – and how you engage with partners at this time to undo some of the expectations you have carried in the past… as well as the ways you may have conducted yourself in relationships in the past. What you believe is less important than what you do. When it comes to that, the skies point to promising possibilities for moving forward with plans around co-habiting. Venus conjunct the new moon in your solar fourth house, suggests that now is a moment to be bold in putting your intentions out into the universe and seeing what comes back. The 5th of June offers a power date for you to consider discussing with a partner your options of taking your relationship onto a different footing. Venus gives assurance of cosmic blessing in this. Maybe you’d been thinking about the neighbourhood in which you live these past few weeks anyhow… It is very important to you that your neighbourhood is exactly right for you and so there’s a strong chance that any partnership moves could involve you physically relocating to a new neighbourhood. I’d recommend (as an experiment) walking around both your current neighbourhood and that of any partner who may live elsewhere. When you compare both locations, how do you feel? What makes you feel truly comfortable?
