Leo - June 2018
Hey lovely lions! Venus is looking gorgeous in your sign after the 14th of June, and all will be well in Leo world! This is a fantastic time to engage in any activities which require diplomacy, mediation or a calm and sensitive approach; you will be able to easily smooth over any discord with your fair and tactful responses. Not much can go wrong with Venusian energy, although you may find it harder to tackle contentious issues, as your sensitivity to difficult atmospheres intensifies. Venus and Jupiter also form an irritating connection after the 22nd, which may create tension in your family environment, as loved ones seem unable to hold back on criticising your actions. If you are purchasing items for your home or involved in property sales during this last week of the month, tread carefully; extravagant vibrations surround you and you may end up spending a lot more than you budgeted!
This month’s Moon cycle begins with a new Moon in your friendship sector on the 13th. It’s a time for meeting new friends and making plans to socialise with the ones you already have. You may join a new club or class around this date, too. The full Moon of the 28th trines Uranus from your house of work, and an ongoing project which has caused you a fair amount of stress is likely to come to a welcome close now. Opportunities to try something very new and different in your career will arise, and you really should think seriously about what is on offer. With Saturn also around, responsibilities continue to feel burdensome in the work place, although as we reach the month end you could make the brave decision to give up some of those responsibilities in favour of a more well-balanced life.
With Mercury keeping a low profile in your house secrets during the last fortnight of the month, it will be harder to make yourself heard in everyday conversations. You may feel almost invisible when in company during this period, as though your opinions don’t count or aren’t considered valid. Don’t try too hard to get your point across, this is an introspective time which can be very useful for being alone with your thoughts and perusing your current life path. You may notice an increased interest in all things spiritual now, and your instinct for what others are thinking and feeling will be strong. Mercury and Pluto will lock horns from opposite sides of the heavens during the period of the 17th to 23rd, an aspect which might cause you some health issues, as arguments with others play on your mind and prevent you from relaxing. Physical outlets for all that intense emotional energy will help you.
Mars turns retrograde on the 27th in your house of relationships, and this is a big event, as he only changes direction once every two years. His time in reverse motion will last throughout the summer, and is likely to create some serious reflection time around your love interactions, in particular the way you deal with conflict and anger. If you have used harsh words in the past, you may be called to account for these now and have to make an apology. Venus and the Moon’s nodes will be intertwined with Mars between the 17th and 27th, a very significant time for working on past issues with loved ones and engaging in some healing. Actions taken under a Mars retrograde spell tend to come undone somehow later in the year, so this isn’t the best of times to make important decisions about a relationship. Enjoy your June!
