A complex, emotional eclipse season has commenced, and all of a sudden, June comes in, and there is stillness. This month may seem tame in contrast to what has passed, but that impression may be deceiving, dear reader. Although often the case, loudness might not necessarily equate to complexity, for silence offers potions that are equally if not exceedingly as potent.
Early this month, Saturn turns retrograde for the last time, before finally stepping out from its airy kingdom of Aquarius, early next year. Saturn’s (reality, integrity, discipline) annual retrograde last for around 4 and a half months, a period in the year where we are called upon to do inner work, to walk with our shadows, so we can learn how to overcome them. We become introspective, and we become familiar with our weaknesses, close enough so we can understand why we allow them to limit us and our growth. We are faced with hard-to-swallow truths, and we are forced to look into our circumstances through the lens of reality, no matter how painful reality may be. We are reminded that integrity matters. Character matters. Standing for the truth and doing what is right, no matter how difficult, matters.
The month passes by, exciting at some points, but pensive at the most, only to close with energy that will almost feel like a litmus test. Neptune, the planet of illusion, delusion, imagination, and creativity, stations retrograde, for its annual 6-month retrograde cycle, further adding to the internal complications that Saturn is trying to save us from. Neptune is whimsical and unbound to reality. Neptune is daydreams and confusion and irrational decisions. But it is also dreams, aspirations, and endless possibilities. Planetary stations are when retrograde manifestations are strongest, and with Neptune stationing at the end of the month, we may feel limitless and magical almost. Saturn demands to stay put, and Neptune says no, it’s time to fly! … Or fall? The outcome is up to you!
For really specific details on how this month’s Cosmic Weather may affect you, you will need your exact birth time, birth place, and a competent astrologer who can compute and interpret your charts. However, even without these, knowing the general energies at play can greatly assist in planning ahead. You know the drill!
