Emotions & Transformation
Using Vedic Astrology
May 30: Venus Enters Cancer
June 2-June 30: Venus Conjuncts Mars in Cancer
Focus will be on Family, Stability, and Security.
In its highest expression, Venus in Cancer is kind, loving, sensitive, emotionally open, and constructive in communication. Cancer is the sign, which values safety, tradition, home, and family. Venus and Mars together will be in Cancer during this time and represents being passionate about guarding personal, national, family stability and security. This transit of Mars with Venus will activate some intense reactions and concerns regarding these matters.
In its lower expression, especially when Venus conjuncts Mars, which is weak (debilitated) in Cancer, this transit can point to a tendency for emotional upheaval, quarrels, or digestive disturbances. In the world, flooding, water accidents, and issues with finances and real estate are also a possibility.

June 17—November 4: Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius
An Important Time to Reevaluate, Modify, and Refine Our Commitments
Saturn represents the focus, discipline, and determination we need to face problems and reorganize our lives in order to make improvements. As the planet of Truth, Saturn (especially when retrograde) helps us face the truth, and situations, which includes the karmic consequences of our past.
Saturn’s lessons are not always easy, but Saturn is of great benefit when we are open to learning from our mistakes, working hard, and overcoming our personal weaknesses.
June 18: New Moon in Gemini
The theme of this new Moon revolves around the search for more fulfillment. Because Neptune will square the lunation, this further suggests a time when we may need to release illusions, outworn ideas, and false expectations, and also to come to terms with disappointment or hurt about past events.
June 21: The Solstice
A Time for Spiritual Attunement and Communion with Nature
June 24 to July 8: Mercury Transit in Gemini - Challenges with Communication, Travel, and Business
Mercury will be speeding close to the Sun (combust). Mercury and the Sun will come to their exact superior conjunction (known as Cazimi) on July 1. Mercury’s combust cycle can hamper communication, the mind’s rational thought processes, travel, trading, and commerce.
