Aries - June 2018
How are you, Aries?! Your mind will be racing with innovative thoughts in June, as Mercury hits your house of communication on the 13th! As Mercury is the planet of all things conversational and intellectual, this will be a double dose of intense mental energy; you may feel a little overwhelmed with all the ideas flying through your brain, and your desire to express them to others. You will want to talk but you could find you are talking at people rather than to them, as listening will not be a strength during this last fortnight of the month. Taking some time out to balance this mental overexertion with some physical activity is important. Mercury and the Sun link up between the 3rd and 9th, a fabulous period for arranging meetings or discussions where you need to show how intelligent and coherent you are. The new Moon on the 13th is also an excellent time to build bridges with a neighbour, in-law or sibling with whom you have not been seeing eye to eye in recent weeks.
Mars makes a rather rare direction change on the 27th in your house of friendships, which could cause a few issues around your interactions with friends in the coming weeks. As he begins to lose speed mid-month in preparation for this change, frustrating interactions with difficult people are likely to increase. This is not the best times to enter an argument with someone in your social circle; it will be necessary to take back your words or admit defeat before Mars turns direct again in September. Mars and Uranus come together in a challenging connection during the last fortnight of the month, which will create tension around financial agreements with friends or social clubs and societies. This link will play out again in early August, and it will be mid-September before it is fully resolved. Mars will also conjunct the south node throughout the month and again in early September, an unsettling combination of energies which may lead to an aggressive confrontation with a friend.
Venus lingers in your domestic area until the 13th, a positive time for making peace with unhelpful relatives, decorating your home and generally finding yourself a peaceful spot where no-one can disturb you. You may find you are more sensitive than usual now to stressful atmospheres in your home, and you will be keen to mediate between family members who are having a hard time getting along. Venus forms wonderful connections with Neptune and Jupiter during the first week of June, an excellent time for showing compassion and forgiveness in a delicate family matter. Whether or not you are looking, you could find your dream home now, you will be very spiritually in tune with your emotions and certain places will draw you. Don’t be surprised if psychic messages come through from loved ones.
Uranus is making his mark on your finances now, and you will be sure to feel his impulsive, unpredictable influence on your cash flow as we move through to the summer! This won’t be the best of times to keep track of money, although you will have some fantastic, original ideas for how to make your bank balance look healthier. It will be hard to rely on others now for financial security, you are much more likely to seek independence to spend your cash on what you please. The full Moon on the 28th will aspect Uranus and Saturn, and this is a good time to put some of those ideas into practice in your working life. Someone important is listening! Have a great month!
