The first Summer month of 2019 offers us an exceptional month of hope, but also of delay and contradiction.
The growing divide in society becomes painfully clear this month.
This dichotomy undermines the sustainable and harmonious society that humanity longs for.
June 2019 is characterized by two exact planetary positions that are current throughout 2019.
The healing and fruitful helping hand between Saturn and Neptune and the challenging volatile planetary tension between Jupiter square Neptune. Saturn sextile Neptune will be the planetary safety net and silver lining on this polarized society.
June 2019 opens strong with an exuberant New Moon in Gemini on June 3, 2019.
This New Moon in logical and dualistic Gemini requires clear and just choices, especially now.

Retrograde planets Jupiter in Sagittarius, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and retrograde Neptune in Pisces at the end of this month, will inhibit social processes. The present influence of the upcoming Lunar Eclipse in Cancer of July 2, 2019 also requires to let go, revise and improve collective and personal processes.
Retrograde Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn are now only 3 degrees apart, close to the South Node in Capricorn, which is our collective memory. The merging of Saturn and Pluto has the power of a Solar Eclipse. Next month on July 16, 2019 there will be a Solar Eclipse at 24º in Capricorn and this may be considered as the final rehearsal of the coming historic conjunction between Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn on January 12, 2020. From mid-September 2019, Saturn turns direct and hurries to catch up direct Pluto in Capricorn and this causes turmoil and upheaval in the world.
The Yellow Vests, Me-Too, Brexit, extreme climatic conditions, the trade war with China, the recent instability of the stock market, Venezuela, the Gulf region, North Korea, Northern Ireland and other trouble spots in the world are all harbingers of what is to come. Timing is running out.
When Saturn conjoins Pluto in Capricorn, we must face for all we have ignored or closed our eyes for. A big reality check. It is high time to take responsibility for Mother Earth of which we are all a part of.
For another three months, Uranus has been traveling through the element of Earth. The radical influence of Uranus in Taurus is already showing significant technological changes in our society. We speak of environmental awareness and sustainability. A desire to return to nature.
But will this be possible? The overwhelming message of Uranus in Taurus is the rapid decline of the natural world. Decades of over-exploitation of nature, global warming, overpopulation, over-consumption, deforestation and the extinction of species, insects and plants are having a major negative impact on our biodiversity. Only a fundamental awareness and radical economic and social changes can turn the tide.
Red warrior Mars travels through Cancer until July 1, 2019. Emotions and sentiment play an important role in decision-making in society throughout June 2019. In June 2019, the emotional power of Mars in Cancer and the objective Sun in Gemini form the keys to creativity, productivity and progress.
On her swift journey through the zodiac, Venus joins the Sun in Gemini on June 10, 2019.
With this stimulating change, we are hopeful about relationships and the economy.
A favorable period for trade, traveling and all forms of communication.
We see new opportunities on the horizon. The influence of the second exact square between Jupiter and Neptune brings new creative energy and new opportunities. However, it challenges us to reach full potential. Extreme optimism may result in loss of face, disillusion and empty promises. Mountains of gold that ultimately prove to be deep pitfalls. Well-intentioned, but unattainable, unrealistic and impracticable solutions can lead to unforeseen, unpredictable and incalculable developments in politics, science and economics. The previous planetary challenge between Jupiter and Neptune was in 2006 and the next square will be in 2025.
In addition to economic consequences, the tension square between Jupiter (large, larger, largest) and Neptune (rivers, seas and oceans) can lead to major flooding, mudslides and extreme climatic conditions.
Mercury remains in Cancer from June 5 to June 27, 2019. From June 28, 2019, Mercury enters Leo. From July 7, 2019, Mercury goes retrograde in Leo and Mercury ends up in Cancer again from July 20, 2019. Mercury will be back in Leo from August 11, 2019. Mercury’s journey back and forth from Cancer to Leo shows that the focus is on self-interest and safety until the end of August 2019.
On June 17, 2019, the Full Moon shines in Sagittarius. This Full Moon is the last Full Moon before the start of an astronomical summer and is also called the "Grass Moon".

On June 19 and June 20, 2019, a dynamic field of tension takes place between the conjunction Mercury and Mars in Cancer and retrograde Pluto in Capricorn. A cosmic recipe for controversy and explosiveness, misleading information, propaganda, internet fraud, conspiracy theories, eavesdropping scandals, intimidation and other forms of psychological abuse on the internet or other channels. This contradiction can also lead to remarkable achievements in all areas where courage and strength are required, especially with projects that started a year or two ago.
From June 21, 2019, Neptune goes retrograde in its own mystical realm of Pisces.
Neptune will remain retrograde until November 26, 2019. The beginning of retrograde Neptune in Pisces brings a general feeling of dissatisfaction and a negative sentiment, because we can be confronted with the fact that nothing is as it seems.

On June 21, 2019, the Sun reaches its highest point on the Tropic of Cancer and enters the Water Sign of Cancer. The longest day and the shortest night. It is Midsummer, the Summer Solstice or the Summer Equinox for the Northern Hemisphere. For the southern hemisphere, this magical day means the beginning of the Winter and the Winter Equinox. From this day on, the days in the Northern Hemisphere are slowly getting shorter and shorter until the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2019.
On June 25, 2019, the Moon in Aries is conjunct asteroid Chiron. Chiron in Aries shows suppressed anger, frustration and a feeling of powerlessness and the Moon in Aries reinforces all those emotions, so this may result in aggression and violence. Violence will never be the solution. It is high time that we say farewell to old thought patterns and beliefs and that we focus on our own well-being.
The second exact sextile of 2019 between Saturn and Neptune is the planetary band-aid throughout the year 2019, offering the world faith and confidence and an opportunity to build a loving world. Saturn is Karma, so the karmic nature of Saturn sextile Neptune means: “what goes around comes around”. Good things happen to those who do the right thing. Selflessness and satisfaction are rewarded through mysterious ways. In this period of retrogradation, the square Jupiter and Neptune challenges everyday life and can lead to a worldwide spiritual reconfiguration.
On their way to a higher spiritual consciousness, people go searching for the universal power and the true meaning of life, unity, connection and new grip in this polarized world through selfless service, introspection and other forms of faith.
It teaches us that we are all together and together we have to make the best of it.
Wishing you all a wonderful month of June.
