June’s Strawberry Full Moon comes on Friday, June 5 at 3:12 pm. There’s also a lunar eclipse and challenging aspects, which appear as part of the unusual rhythm of 2020. On the outer level, it’s easy to see patterns and rhythms of conflict and upset. On a higher level, it’s likely that we can evolve and master many of these energies on a collective level in the coming months.
Sun (life) in Gemini focuses on short range communications such as news and social media, interaction with friends and families. The air sign is represented by the twins, denoting the dual nature of life—which can be transcended through insights into the spiritual self. Moon (emotions) is placed in Sagittarius, the archer who focuses on long range goals and intentions.
Sun (life) forms a lovely conjunction (close to) Venus (love, relationships), which can amplify feelings of harmony and love. Sun squares (tension) Mars, which can ignite the will and force. It can become the powerful placement of the creative warrior and/or represent tension, anger, and rage. It can bestow achievement through increased will power and determination—at its best. Sun also squares Neptune (illusion/mysticism), and it tends to cause frustration. However, it increases creativity and desire for expression.
Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mars (action, male energy) form a T-square, which delivers the feeling of pressure in life. However, we have free will—and can focus on universal energies or frustrations. (Think of dialing into the universe for a specific, higher frequency and feeling. Stay there!)
Moon (emotions) opposes (opposite) Venus (love, relationships) increases our need for love from others when it’s probably important to love the self. Moon squares Mars (action)—an indication that our emotions can override the need to take positive action and/or lead us into the wrong action.
Mercury (communication, higher mind) sits in Cancer, a water sign, which can heighten emotion. Mercury trines (harmonious) Mars (action), meaning the higher mind can guide our actions to create positive emotions and change in life.
Venus is placed in Gemini, giving a tendency for light conversation and socialization. However, Venus is retrograde, so we feel less of her positive qualities (love, harmony) at this time. Venus squares (tension) Mars (male, action), and we’re likely to feel out of sync with the people who we love and the sweeter rhythms of life. (Venus moves direct on June 25.)
Mars sits in Pisces, a water sign represented by fishes swimming in opposite directions. Mars in Pisces tends to repress negative feeling until they surface. Mars is conjunct (close to) Neptune (illusion, mysticism). The aspect heightens sensitivity and accentuates the need for grounding and practicality.
Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) conjuncts (close to) Saturn (structure, karma) pushes our consciousness into growth and expansion. Often, it brings obstacles, but it also gives strength to overcome them. It gives recognition of limitation and a desire to overcome it.
Saturn (limitation, karma) squares Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), which limits the ability to create change in the way that we want and brings obstacles into our path. It’s best to see problems and take action—rather than dreaming big plans and making significant choices. Let the universe reveal the right path to creating a better, more positive life.
Jupiter (expansion, good luck) and Saturn (limitation, karma) conjunct Pluto (underworld, transformation). As we’ve seen the past few months, these aspects reveal the hidden crevices of lower and higher collective consciousness. The goal is creating a transformation based on higher vibrations. (We have to see the truth to change it.)
- We may feel frustration and anxiety on an emotional level, and it’s helpful to know that it’s temporary. It’s useful to notice the causes of frustration and determine if it’s the overall energy or a pertinent issue that requires a different type of action.
- Sun conjunct Venus can help in identifying with peace and love. It’s important to remember this higher part of our consciousness is always available. It’s a matter of tapping into it.
- It takes will and motivation to move into the higher side of expression with Sun, Moon, and Venus square Neptune. This aspect can give feelings of tiredness and lack of focus. However, it can also denote the ability of creative expression–if we tap into it.
- It’s not an easy chart, but the pressure will subside as we move away from the full moon. Regardless of feelings or circumstances, we have the power to see the opposite of a specific situation, find a better, higher frequency, and take the time to see the needed changes in life.
Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill
Sun is on Gemini 15, “Two Dutch Children Talking and Studying Their Lessons Together.” The symbol asks for greater understanding of other people’s point of view as well as connection and collaboration on a higher mental level. In sharing knowledge on common ground, both children profit from the endeavor.
Moon is on Sagittarius 15, “The Ground Hog Looking for Its Shadow on Ground Hog Day.” The degree depicts the desire for indication of upcoming changes and the need for a “sign” to follow in the right direction. It relates to the emotional need to find clarity in a time of confusion.
Mercury is on Cancer 9, “A Small Naked Girl Bends Over A Sparkling Pond Trying to Catch A Fish.” The symbol speaks of the naivety and innocence of childhood when we are free from societal needs. We can play in the beauty of life and ponder what lives in the sparkling pond. (It’s a much needed energy!)
Venus is placed on Gemini 13, “A World Famous Pianist Giving A Concert Performance.” The placement refers to those who have mastered their gifts and can share them with others. It suggests finding a love connection through the higher vibrations of adepts. It can also indicate a need to develop and express our individual talents.
Mars is on Pisces 16, “In a Quiet Moment, A Creative Individual Experiences The Flow of Inspiration“. When we attune with universal, higher consciousness, we find peace and answers. With Mars (action) on this degree, it’s important to move into this place of being before taking “frustrated” and/or angry action.
Jupiter sits on Capricorn 27, “A Mountain Pilgrimage”. This is a beautiful symbol that speaks of exaltation and ascension of spirit, which represents good fortune (Jupiter) in this chart. It’s a lovely placement for consciousness with an illuminated goal.
