Welcome to our June Monthly Horoscope 2017 For All Zodiac Signs!
Theme of the Month:
Your thoughts and words really do have the power to create your life .
Sun in Gemini has arrived, and along with it, the focus shifts from our basic survival needs to our ideas, thoughts, and communications – the stuff that creates our reality.
Gemini is ruled by or associated with the planet Mercury. Mercury is known for a few qualities – wit and intellect, mental and verbal energy, quickness and agility (of both mind and body). It is also associated with youth and early education, and considered the sign of the “student path”.
Eager to learn and impatient to know and understand, Gemini is known as the “Peter Pan” of the zodiac. If you really think of the story of Peter Pan, you recognize the story is about the eternal spirit of youth, the beauty of innocence and child-like wonder with all things around us, and the powerful belief that you can create reality out of your thoughts and words. It may remind you that your life experience is whatever you choose it to be; it is whatever you choose to think, say, and take action for it to be.
But how can that be? How can our ideas, thoughts, and words really create our reality?
The act of creation is first an idea – an inspiration, a moment of recognition. Then, if we choose to acknowledge it and hold it for a few moments longer, it becomes a thought. Once it is a thought, we then have a choice to as to whether or not we take action(s) to manifest it. That action may be physical action, or we may formulate words to communicate it to others through written or spoken language, or both. Then once we have acted and/or communicated in alignment with our thought, we’ve put that energy out into the world and given others the power to share in its manifestation. It has the opportunity to become real once we have allowed it to be revealed and released through action and communication.
That said, there is much to be learned from our thinking, saying, and acting upon our creative energy. There is knowledge to be gained, and it is important that we pay attention to how we learn what we know. It is important that we recognize that we learn what we learn and know what we know through the choices we make, the actions we take, and the ways we communicate.
For example, let’s say I get an idea to bake a cake, if I think about baking a cake, then I begin to think about how I’ll go about baking that cake. Now if I think to myself, “I’m not good at baking”, then I may stop there and not even take another step forward in the process. But if I choose to move forward, I may choose to learn how (or teach myself how) to bake and I may look up a recipe for baking a cake from scratch and buy the ingredients. That, or if I’m still thinking, “I’m not good at baking”, I may go to the store and buy a box of cake mix to make it easier to bake a cake…or I may give up altogether on baking it myself and go to the bakery section and order a cake.
It would be as easy to choose to learn how to bake a cake from scratch as it would be to choose to order a cake from the bakery. The choice is easy – the choice is not about the action – it’s about the thoughts we have about the actions and the choices we make as result of those thoughts. (If I thought it was too hard to try, I wouldn’t have chosen to learn how to bake a cake from scratch. If I had wanted the time and energy to do other things more important to me, I may have chosen to pay the money to have the bakery bake it.)
It’s the same thing with our words. Once we choose to speak something, once we’ve written something and shared it with the world, we can’t take it back. Its energy is out there in the world. Others have had the opportunity to receive it and form their own thoughts and make their own choices and take their own actions and/or communicate their own thoughts about it. For example, if I chose to say to someone, “I’m going to bake a cake”, then that person would have expected me to bake a cake. I would have created that expectation. I would have created that space for action on my part. If I had said, “I’m going to bring a cake”, all that would matter is that I brought a cake – whether I baked it or bought it would not be an issue.
I chose the cake examples to make a point – we choose what we think about! We make these choices consciously, subconsciously and sometimes even unconsciously (out of conditioned routine). Our thoughts create our reality because our thoughts influence our choices.
To revisit Peter Pan, it’s not so much the idea that we “never, ever, ever (have to) grow up” (which is often the perception of Gemini by other signs, that Gemini is the perpetual child of the Zodiac) as it is that we have the power of creation at our disposal. Creation begins with an idea, an inspiration, an imagining. We are as grown-up or mature, as smart or dumb, as confident or insecure as we choose to be and feel. Our lives are as wonderful or as miserable as we choose to perceive them and choose to act upon them to be. That is the creative power of Gemini – that is the gift of Gemini. It is the gift of the knowledge and understanding that it is our mental energy to have ideas and thoughts and to make choices based upon those ideas and thoughts to create and shape our life experiences.
Look at where Gemini falls in your astrological chart for guidance in how to utilize this energy in your personal life journey. For more information and insights, see the June 2017 Monthly Horoscope for your zodiac sign.
June Horoscope Overview
The Full Moon on June 9, 2017 at 16:09 GMT falls in the the optimistic and buoyant sign sign of Sagittarius. This Full Moon brings events and situations to a culmination from the start of its cycle at the New Moon two weeks ago. What intentions did you send to Spirit during the New Moon time?
New Moons and Full Moons are cosmic portals which pierce through the veil of time and space allowing us to expand our perception beyond the constraints of material 3D reality. The three days prior and three days after a Full Moon are especially potent times for releasing physical, mental and emotional blockages.
Sagittarius is a fire sign and symbolizes Man’s spontaneous quest for knowledge; the spirit of Prometheus stealing fire from the gods in order to enlighten humanity. The sign Sagittarius governs our personal belief systems, our philosophy of life, our spiritual search for the meaning of life…..How do we perceive God and/ or the “God particle”? Is there life on Mars? If so, do they have “souls”?
During any Full Moon, the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs. This month, Sun is in the Air sign, Gemini, and the Moon is in the Fire, sign, Sagittarius. The Fire/Air polarity has a tendency to “speak first and think later”, but this could also trigger the response for a much needed action. Sagittarius tends to be optimistic, adventurous, and good humored most of the time, but can become a vehement opponent when personal beliefs, political beliefs, and religious beliefs are at stake. Sagittarius asks: “Can you walk your talk without forcing others to see it your way?” The shadow side of Sagittarius is fanaticism and dogma.
All this intense planetary energy focused around such an expansive Full Moon makes it perfect for a celebration: gather friends together and have a fire ceremony (bon-fire); share experiences of other cultures and faraway places. This is a great night to deepen wisdom though meditation, chanting, and prayer. Have your group “moon-gaze” under the vast ocean of stars above us. This is the time to step up to the plate not just as a global, but as a “cosmic citizen”.
Once again, remember what you asked to have “seeded” into action on the Gemini New Moon. The Full Moon usually bears results.
New Moon in Cancer
This month we have a New Moon in Cancer on June 24, 2017 at 05.30 GMT.
New Moons are the optimal times to set new intentions. Cancer is the sign of the Great Mother, the feminine archetype par excellence- the primal water sign in charge of the birthing process (including labor pains), the nurturer of family, children, community and country (Even Homeland Security).
Since the birth chart of the U.S. has a Cancerian Sun sign (born on the 4th of July), money, as well as domestic, home and family issues will be a big concern, as both the Sun and Moon will pull this into sharp focus. The U.S. housing “crisis”, as well as the banking and monetary system will be addressed one way or the other…there is no escaping this one.
The Summer Solstice occurs on June 20, 2017, in the Northern Hemisphere. Cancer is the primordial water sign and during this time we are subject to more intense emotions, unconscious projections and psychic phenomenon.
At the Summer Solstice the forms we have manifested since the Winter Solstice in December must now be nourished and provided with supportive structures. In the Great Wheel of the Year, the Summer Solstice celebrates the abundance and fertility of our Mother Earth. It is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere with the most sunlight available. It is a time to enjoy life and celebrate our true lineage as Sons and Daughters of the Light. In the ancient religions as well as indigenous cultures around the globe, the Summer Solstice (Midsummer’s Eve) is regarded as time to pay homage to the God (the sun) in his role as consort to the Great Mother ( the Earth).
The essence of the Cancerian archetype is the Great Mother, the Grail, the “container” of both spiritual and physical growth. The sign of Cancer has long been associated with the Goddess in all her myriad forms of creation, the Moon, the unconscious, the emotional body and the astral/psychic worlds.
Whether you inhabit a male or female body, whether you have a family, or live as a solitary being, you have a connection to the Great Mother. Get in touch with Her through the Earth. This month is the perfect time to spend some time meditating in nature. Take your crystals into the sunlight and listen to them speak. Smell the green grass and feel the strength of a tree against your back. Listen to the songs of the birds- their sounds hold many codes to expand consciousness. If you have a loved one, invite them to a picnic. Sit on the earth and feel Her energy move through you, as you partake of Her bounty. If you are not in relationship, invite friends, or treat yourself. Give thanks for what you have in your life at this moment, and prepare the way for “the new” to come in.
The New Moon is always a “seeding “time. What would you like to manifest over the next 2 weeks….emotionally? Psychically? Materially? How can you best midwife your own creativity? Are you truly expressing your heart in your most significant relationships? Are you in a satisfied relationship with yourself? Where do you need to release old programming around the feminine? All issues having to do with birth/death, male/female relationships, children and home/security will come up in the news over the next 2 weeks and probably become much more heated before they become resolved: same sex marriage, stem cell research, “octo-moms”, missing/abused children ….
The New Moon being in Cancer means that people with Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) featured in their birth charts are more likely to be affected. Also, if your birthdate falls on or near of the New Moon date, you can expect major changes in the area where is falls in your chart (the house).
