Aquarius - June 2018
Hello there Aquarius! Energy levels will feel precarious in June, as Mars prepares to turn retrograde in your sign on the 27th! As we reach the middle of the month, he will start to lose speed and this will take its toll on your general vitality levels and your ability to express feelings of frustration and anger. The next couple of months for water carriers could be a little difficult, as temper finds an outlet in sudden outbursts, if at all. Hasty decisions about personal problems are not advised, as you may be forced to backtrack on those choices when Mars turns direct again in the autumn. If your birthday is in January, you will be especially susceptible to the tension Mars is creating now, and may encounter health problems relating to headaches, high temperatures or infected wounds. Mars conjuncts the Moon’s south node throughout the month and again in mid-July, so disagreements which you have with friends or family members now are likely to persist until early September.
Mercury is flying through your house of love and leisure for the first fortnight of the month, and new potential love partners need to be interesting and intelligent now, or you simply won’t be attracted to them! Having fun during this period has to have a reason, it won’t satisfy you to simply float along engaging in social interactions, without there being something meaningful behind them. Mercury conjuncts the Sun between the 3rd and 9th, a time of fantastic creative ideas; you will meet like-minded others during this period who want you to get involved in new projects involving art, drama or music. Hobbies will involve mental concentration and lots of conversation now. The new Moon on the 13th is an especially good time for starting such a project, or looking into a new and exciting leisure activity.
The Moon will be full on the 28th in your house of secrets, and this last week of June is a winding down time, as you feel a strong urge to shut yourself away from the universe and have some time alone. The world might just seem like too much now, as everyday tasks which you can usually complete without thinking, suddenly become difficult and emotionally testing. Anxiety and depression can be exacerbated by this transit, so if you suffer from these conditions, pay extra attention to your mood. Spiritual encounters are more likely as your psychic sense is greatly enhanced. This may be a time when private information about you is revealed in a public way, and this situation might leave you feeling a little exposed and vulnerable. With Uranus contacting the Moon here from your domestic area, family revelations are also likely, but these experiences can be used in a positive way as they offer a chance to reconnect with distant family members.
Neptune turns retrograde on the 17th in your financial sector, and over the next two months he will offer you a chance to face the reality of your money situation, as the veil of cloud and confusion is suddenly lifted. Neptune’s aim is to pretty everything up so that it all looks wonderful and happy, but when he is moving in reverse he finds it much harder to keep up this charade. The positive news here is that you can finally get back on track with your accounts and tackle any issues which you have been ignoring. Neptune’s fabulous connections with Jupiter and Mercury between the 17th and 23rd will send you a once in a lifetime career opportunity which will have very fortunate financial rewards attached. Enjoy your month!
