The summer month of June 2017 begins with a First Quarter Moon in Virgo and two strong and promising planetary connections.
Uranus and Venus in Aries trine Saturn in Sagittarius and the Sun in Gemini trine Jupiter in Libra gives June 2017 a true boost and fiery inspiration.
A favorable and productive period for business, but also for all social connections in the world.
There is a sense of trust that makes us willing to make the most of it.
The exuberant Gemini energy colors June 2017 with a lot of motion and abundant energy.
Until July 5, 2017, the sensual energy of Venus in Taurus allows us to desire more stability, peace, luxury, comfort and beauty. A period of satisfaction, harmony and equivalence.
And Mercury enters its own sign Gemini on the 7th of June 2017.
Mercury feels completely at home here! The period until June 21, 2017 is a favorable period for the trade, travel world and all forms of communication.
The red warrior Mars will travel through Cancer from June 5, 2017. Therefore, emotions ans sentiment will play an important role in decision-making in society this month.
Until July 20, 2017, this Mars in Water focuses on home and family. A period of strong emotions in which we dare to come out for what we believe.
Mars's energy in the introspective Cancer adds enormous emotional power to this month.
The emotional power of Mars in Cancer and the mutable Sun in Gemini are the key to creativity, productivity and progress.
Due to the dualistic influence of the Sun in Gemini we are faced with contradictions in many areas this month.
The growing gap between groups in society becomes painfully clear this month.
It looks like we live at cross-purposes than live together. We talk, but don’t really say anything and talk over each other’s heads. This division undermines a sustainable and harmonious society what humanity is longing for.
The airy and rapid energy of Gemini soon changes into an excited and exaggerated atmosphere due to the Venus and Uranus conjunction in Aries. A feeling of strong desire, a tension that something is about to happen, but nobody can put the finger on it.
In addition, the strong retrograde forces can act as a brake and challenge us to work things out first.
This month, Saturn remains in retrograde in Sagittarius. Saturn "declines" from 25º33 to 23º27 in Sagittarius.
From August 25, 2017, Saturn resumes its direct orbit around the Sun.
Until then, responsibility, courage, hard work and perseverance are required to achieve our goals. Saturn in retrograde brings us back to the core of the problem.
The way we deal with problems and challenges brings insight into how we can overcome fear and setbacks. By restoring our inner strength, we find the energy to rise again and manifest our dreams.
However, social relations may come under pressure due to the influence of Saturn in retrograde in Sagittarius through idealistic and political disputes.
The dreamy Neptune in Pisces goes in retrograde from June 16th 2017 until November 21th 2017.
The beginning of Neptune's retrograde period in Pisces gives a general sense of dissatisfaction and a negative sentiment. Neptune stands still at 14º15 in Pisces and particular moment shows that nothing is what it seems.
In the media we get a distorted view of what's really going on, a totally different picture of the physical reality. A sense of uncertainty leads to fear, powerlessness and defensiveness.

June 2017 ends with a dynamic field of tension between the winged Mercury in Cancer and the transformative Pluto in Capricorn. A cosmic recipe for a dispute. This excessive power struggle can go very deep and very far. Fierce discussions lead to the disclosure of secrets. Opinions are far apart. In the mundane world we see misleading information, propaganda, internet fraud, conspiracy theories, eavesdropping scandals, intimidation and other forms of psychological abuse on the Internet or other channels. There may be obsession and an inflated sense of superiority.
This planetary aspect shows a period in which focus will be on domestic issues, family affairs, home and real estate and the upturn to a new financial crisis in America.
The direct Jupiter in Libra will navigate to the formation of a square with Pluto in Capricorn on August 4th, 2017, which will take place just before the Total Lunar Eclipse of August 7th 2017 and the Solar Eclipse of August 21th 2017.

I wish you all a beautiful June.
