Welcome June! We move from a Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 3 to a New Moon in Gemini on June 18 – let’s feel the flow:
Picture the beginning of the month as blossoming with expansive ideas and how to structure them. We are encouraged to blend our vision with practicality as we assimilate all that has been asked of us since May 19.
Then mid-month offers a pause as major forces create a much-needed slow-down around the time of the New Moon. We may seek and share information at this time but may wish to refrain from rushing into new beginnings. Can we allow reflection to be our guide?
The summer solstice on June 21 offers us all a shining day of light, no matter what the weather! Take a moment to pause. Cosmic forces pulsate on this day, showering us with an energetic alignment, if only we are Present to receive it.
Make the most of June!
You have all worked so hard and now school is out!
To celebrate their graduation, my Level 2 students had fun in their final class crafting Sun sign columns for the month. Working as a team to write the 12 signs, we concluded that there really is something to the art of Sun sign astrology – enjoy!

Ten o’clock: the broken moon
Hangs not yet a half hour high,
Yellow as a shield of brass,
In the dewy air of June,
Poised between the vaulted sky
And the ocean’s liquid glass.
—Emma Lazarus, American poet, 1849-1887
