Mercury is in retrograde motion for most of June – he begins moving backwards on June 7 and stays that way until July 1. He will travel from 3 degrees of Cancer back to 24 degrees of Gemini. Where those degrees fall in your chart is the area of life that need revising and review. Summer Solstice is on June. 21. The fact that the season starts with Mercury retrograde adds twists and turns to your expectations for this summer. You need to stay flexible and jump at any opportunities that present themselves. Both Neptune and Chiron turn retrograde during June and set a theme for the summer that requires you to depend on you right brain for answers and directions.
Monday, June 16 – Moon in Aquarius. This is the last day for a few months when the element of Air is strong, which makes it easy to access thoughts and be objective about them.
