30 May June Skies 2018
Astrology by Tiffany Harelik + Numerology by Amanda Green
June begins with two magical trines (Mercury/Mars + Venus/Jupiter), that combined with the power of Saturn in Capricorn, and a Capricorn Full Moon make it a potent time to be working on new projects that have potential to reap big financial rewards. Healing feelings, exploring the esoteric world, and breaking through shock/fears/excruciating and traumatic experiences are also deep themes this month with a Pluto/Chiron quintile.
June AstroNumerology Intention: It is my intention to effortlessly focus my attention on love, abundance and generosity while trusting in my abilities to generate an expansive reality. I will: Dream big. Think expansively. Believe in my infinite capabilities.
Two important retrogrades begin in June and we have an opportunity to repattern old energy and outdated beliefs dealing with Mars and Neptune themes: competitiveness, hesitation, aggression, anger, abuse, spiritual growth, art, and anything that makes your blood boil, cues you to seek higher ground, or to pay attention to your creative goals.
The third pass of a 5-part *Uranus/Neptune semi-square releases this month. Look out for big promises that don’t pan out as you’d thought, having some big changes of heart, and getting out of toxic relationships/environments. What pot are your stirring through May of 2019? We will continue to see the effects of the big Uranus move into Taurus through 2026: bright new traditions (the royal wedding), volatility in the stock markets (crypto), and changing weather patterns (volcanic activity in Hawaii), are a few.

In Numerology: June is the 6th month of the year, and is an *8 Universal Month. The energy of the 8 enables us to balance our material/physical world (health, wealth, environment) with our immaterial world (spiritual, mental & emotional). Of the single digits in numerology, or as I call them the ABCs/building blocks (the numbers 1-9), the number 8 is the Magic Manifester – The number of Balance & Power.
Transitioning from May, which was a 7 Universal Month of Seeking, Spirituality and Introspection, we now have the opportunity with the 8 to manifest our inner dreams and desires into reality. It’s time to see your diligence, perseverance and preparation magically materialize. Read the Full June Numerology report here.
Quick Numerology Tip: Recognize Opportunity versus Limitation. Remember, our thoughts and feelings combined generate our reality. So, whatever you focus on grows. Read the June Numerology report here.
Week 1: Have a Fun Friday, and plan a relaxing weekend to recharge your batteries.
June 1 (Friday): Magic carpet ride. As two trines complete, look for blessings, gifts, and messages around taking action, mental acuity, and financial abundance. There is good juju today for the arts, spiritual pursuits, destiny dreaming, and buying a pretty meditation cushion with a Venus/Neptune trine and Mercury/North Node sextile in the works. Pay attention; stay awake to the subtle messages.
June 2 (Saturday): Lay low. The Moon is Void of Course all day, making things foggy until 5pm. You regain clarity and energy to move forward as the Moon moves into Aquarius this evening.
June 3 (Sunday): Skies are clear for work or play, but be mindful of the bigger picture tones of the month: breaking through wounds from shock and trauma.
Week 2: Things aren’t what they seem, but you can avoid some potholes by planning ahead: (1) push important decisions, meetings, and conversations out to next week, (2) get rigorously honest with yourself, (3) use the wisdom of pausing to reassess rather than forging ahead.
June 4 (Monday): There is positive energy to get important tasks and transformative business calls done before 3p. The Sun/Mercury conjunction in Taurus and a Venus/Pluto opposition are woven into the tones of the day: place an ad with your face on it, write some powerful or persuasive sales copy, and don’t miss an opportunity that could be right in front of your face. Avoid rush hour traffic. When Luna goes Void of Course around 3pm, she stays there all night. The afternoon has scattered energy and is not a good time to start new projects nor is it an ideal time to network and meet new people. Anything you start now will likely dissipate.
June 5 (Tuesday): Strange. Grumpy. Toxic. Perhaps someone can’t be bothered with details while dreaming up the big picture. A Mercury/Neptune square is building that brings to mind the Doors lyrics, “People are strange, when you’re a stranger. Faces look ugly, when you’re alone. Women seem wicked, when you’re unwanted. Streets are uneven, when you’re down.”
June 6 (Wednesday): Disconnected. Where have you deluded yourself? Where are you disillusioned? If you’re willing to get honest, you have an opportunity to cut through your own BS today with a Sun/Neptune square that’s building.
June 7 (Thursday): More to the story. Lay low, stick to routine, and keep a simple schedule. Luna is Void of Course all day again and you’re likely to feel a little groggy. The pieces aren’t adding up to make a full picture until later in the day. The Moon then enters Aries around 4:30pm. Watch out for tempers, brutal honesty, and heat. Anything that’s been bottled up, has a tendency to burst. Stay hydrated when the Moon is in a fire sign.
June 8 (Friday): Skies are clear.
June 9 (Saturday): Get out of the house Saturday morning and a breath of fresh air or picnic in the Great Outdoors. The Moon goes Void of Course in the afternoon around 2:30pm and stays that way until late night.
June 10 (Sunday): Plan a family reunion or get together for late June. With Mercury and the Sun moving into Cancer, later this month, you’ll be feeling equally sentimental and ready for a beach vacation.
Week 3 – The week starts out strong and ends a little rocky. If you’re feeling a disturbance in the force it’s likely due to a 5-part Uranus/Neptune semi-square. This energy has been in effect since August of 2017 and lasts through May 2019, but we get a pulse this week which gives us some insight around these themes: excitement, dreams, spiritual pursuits, and shocking change. Look out for big promises that don’t pan out as you’d thought, having some big changes of heart, and getting out of toxic relationships/environments. What pot are your stirring through May of 2019?
June 11 (Monday): Skies are clear for work or play.
June 12 (Tuesday): Homeward Bound. Mercury moves into water-sign Cancer for a few weeks and your mind (Mercury) aligns with your mood (Cancer). Protective/moody feelings may surface, thoughts may turn to home and family, and you’re likely feeling more sentimental in general. The next few weeks are a good time to make memories, establish traditions, and get together for a family reunion at the lake/beach. There’s a secondary wave of energy today that brings some excitement and bright ideas (Mercury/Uranus sextile). If old wounds around your life path are bubbling up for release, make time to feel the pain and work through it; a Mercury/Chiron square and Mars/South Node conjunction has been brewing and will release tomorrow.
June 13 (Wednesday): With the Moon Void of Course starting at 2:43pm and lasting into the wee hours, get all chores, errands and meetings done before the afternoon lull hits. But hey! There’s also a New Moon in Gemini revving up engines. Governed by Mercury, Gemini rules social events, communication, and siblings. Variety and spontaneity are themes for this Moon. In health, Gemini rules the hands, arms, shoulders, lungs, and nervous system. Here’s some wisdom from Molly on the Gemini New Moon:
- “What do you want to learn, know, talk more about?
- Where do you want to travel in the future?
- What are your options?
- Who do you want to meet?”
Stones associated with Gemini include Petoskey Stone, Red Agate, Watermelon Tourmaline, Augite, Limestone, Smoky Quartz, and Flint. Herbs for the Gemini Moon: Lavender, Dill, Caraway, Parsley, and Basil. Oils for the Gemini Moon: Lavender, Peppermint, and Lemongrass. The fifth chakra is associated with Gemini – where you can focus on how you want to illustrate your self-expression through the mental realm. What you think is important. When this chakra is not spinning, or if it is blocked or unbalanced, you may experience (or create) mental chaos. Clear this chakra with meditation, yoga, and thoughtful writing exercises.
Mrrrreowww… Venus enters Leo today offering big, passionate and loyal love energy. The process of courting, looking fabulous, and increasing your self-worth are important vibes for the next month.
June 14 (Thursday): A Venus/Chiron trine and Mercury/Saturn opposition are brewing in the heavens: this is a good day for healing and love, and less optimal for money. In terms of business: the devil is the details: review business plans, consider the minutia, and make sure your daily actions are reflective of your long-term goals. The best use of the energy today is to focus on the subtle messages of love all around you. Spend some time in nature to reconnect with your Source energy. Power up your love magnet and be the person you want to attract.
June 15 (Friday): Low-tide. A Void of Course Moon starting around 11am puts a damper on the day. It would be easier to plan a day of leisure than to try to knock out a big to do list.
June 16 (Saturday): Uranus semi-square Neptune has colored the Skies with a series of semi-squares since August 11th, 2017. The third of five passes completes today in 1-Taurus, and the series ends May 1, 2019. Check the **chart at the end of the forecast for the full list of dates – it may be interesting to take a look back and see if you notice any patterns around those dates. Themes for the Uranus/Neptune semi-square include getting lost in crazy goals or pursuits that don’t pan out, having some big changes of heart, or getting out of toxic relationships/environments. Key words are: shock, excitement, dreams, plans, spiritual pursuits, tension, and change. What pot are your stirring through May of 2019?
June 17 (Sunday): Happy Father’s Day! Skies are clear to celebrate dear old Dad, or to honor the Divine masculine in your life.
Week 4 Neptune retrograde in Pisces is the main theme of the week that will continue to weave the energies of redefining our spirituality and repurposing our art through November. This retrograde is cosmically blessed, as Neptune is forming a grand trine with Mercury and Jupiter. This energy offers new ways to connect with important resources and communities. Get creative, where can you expand your horizons? What masterpiece are you working on editing through November? Consider too, how great this energy is to work with while wounded healer Chiron is in fiery Aries, offering extra energy for self-help, DIY projects, and new perspectives.
June 18 (Monday): Make a list. The Moon is in Virgo today – making it a great day to knock a bunch of stuff off your to-do list. Also note in the bigger picture pattern that Neptune officially goes retrograde today at 16 Pisces through November 24 at 13 Pisces. What masterpiece are you working on editing through November?
June 19 (Tuesday): Sweet dreams are made of these. A Venus/North Node conjunction is brewing, offering you a time to tap into the biggest love of your life, a financial quest, and pursuing passions of all kinds.
June 20 (Wednesday): Lusty angst. Venus/Mars opposition stirs up sexual energy and tension today. Your sensual side needs some attention and direction.
June 21 (Thursday): Happy Summer Solstice! Beach trip! The Sun enters water-sign Cancer for a month. This is a great time to splash in the pool, swim in the lake, or head to the ocean. When the Sun is in Cancer, emotional bonding is important. Consider reconnecting with your near and dear ones. Be sure to read the June Numerology report for extra advice on how to work with the energy.
June 22 (Friday): Look for the Silver lining. There are some opportunities to get real with yourself and have a pinnacle “aha” moment. If you’re having an issue with someone else, it’s more likely that you’re seeing something in yourself that you don’t like. to (Sun/Uranus sextile + Sun/Chiron square + Mercury/Pluto opposition). Avoid starting new projects over the lunch hour; the Moon is Void of Course from 12p-2p.
June 23 (Saturday): Skies are clear to enjoy your weekend. Consider the themes of a retrograde Neptune – you may want to explore a new place to worship, read a sacred text you haven’t picked up in awhile, or paint over an old masterpiece with some new colors.
June 24 (Sunday): Slow your roll. Beware of tendencies to overspend, overeat, and over-indulge. Don’t bet the farm while a Venus/Jupiter square is in the works. Early to bed. Luna goes Void of Course around 6pm and your energy may drop a little. Put anything you didn’t accomplish by 6p down on a little piece of paper to get it out of your head, and tackle it next week.
Week 5: It’s time to seal the deal. The Full Moon this week offers completion energy for those of you who want to get real with your finances and your relationships.
June 25 (Monday): Hard work pays off. A Mars/Saturn parallel this week offers a permanent coming together at work. It’s a good time to work hard, strengthen new partnerships, and put in the sweat-equity.
June 26 (Tuesday): Mars goes retrograde every two years, and does so today at 9 degrees of Aquarius and ends August 27 at 28 degrees of Capricorn. During this period, the underdogs win. You have time to review any negative aspects of Mars energy in your nature such as: competitiveness, hesitation, inability to start things, aggression, anger, sexual abuse, and anything that makes your blood boil.
A major Pluto/Chiron quintile releases today. Check in and acknowledge any wounds or fears around death, endings, traumas and excruciating experiences you’ve been going through the last several months. Where are you willing to heal? If that doesn’t resonate… does your inner-witch want to come out and play or learn something new? Pluto rules the other side, and all things unknown.
A Sun/Saturn opposition brewing in the Skies puts up a red flag for self-flagellation in business today. You may also want to prepare for criticism to come at all angles – will you use it constructively or destructively? For that matter, does something need to be deconstructed to build something new? Consider beliefs, patterns, and actual physical structures.
June 27 (Wednesday): A Full Moon at 6 Capricorn, 11:52pm calls attention to our ambitions/goals, promises, and stabilizing our futures. Harness the AstroMagic of the Capricorn Full Moon energy:
- Putting your finances in order: get a budget app, set up a spreadsheet, get clarity.
- Host a progressive dinner with people you want to seal deals with.
- Invite your team from work over for a strategic-planning.

June 28 (Thursday): Easy does it. Skies are clear but have a low-energy tone.
June 29 (Friday): Hurry up and wait. Restless and frustrated energy permeates the airwaves as Mercury enters courageous Leo while the Moon is Void of course all day. Move important calls, plans, and decisions to next month. The answer can’t be known at this time: a Mercury/Chiron trine and Mercury/Uranus square adds some agitation to the day.
June 30 (Saturday): Take it easy. Skies are clear but have a low-energy tone.

Astrologer’s note from Tiffany: Astrology is a cosmic tapestry that is being woven while the planets are spinning. It’s an ever-changing love story of time, fate, and free will. The faster moving planets affect the details of our daily lives. They “trigger into action the great fields of potential created by the theme-generating outer planets.” (Steven Forrest). While the slower moving planets have more time to build complexity into broader themes in our lives. “Above all, remember this: The astrological symbols, in and of themselves, are powerless. They are only symbols. The are only the weather report. You – magician, life master, time shaper – are the weather.” (Steven Forrest).
