June 2-8 2014 Astrology Forecast: Mercury Retrograde

mercury retrograde u-turn PURPLE jpgMercury turns retrograde this week, calling for careful communication as it backpedals through Cancer and Gemini. In addition, the Sun invites cha(lle)nge by aspecting four slow planets, while Venus makes three significant aspects herself!

6/2 (Mon)

No major astrological events.

6/3 (Tue)

Make adjustments to accommodate transformation, especially in your thinking and communications, with the Geminian Sun quincunx Pluto.

6/4 (Wed)

A Venus-Neptune sextile is always good for creative inspiration, relating with the divine in others, and connecting with your own spiritual essence. With Venus in Taurus, flowing sensuality, sacred sex and Law of Attraction manifestation are also primed.

6/5 (Thu)

A magical expansion of your creativity, relating and/or finances is available with Taurean Venus quintile Jupiter.

6/6 (Fri)

Intuitive flashes may flow fast and free with the Geminian Sun sextile Uranus. This is a good time to let your freak flag fly and focus on projects requiring mental ingenuity.

6/7 (Sat)

Mercury retrograde

Mercury will turn retrograde at 7:56 AM (3°10′ Cancer), and will turn direct again on 7/1 at 8:50 AM (24°22′ Gemini). It’s best to launch big projects or make major purchases before or after these dates.

Confirm clear comprehension, double-check travel arrangements and back up critical data. Mercury retrograde is a great time for reflection, completing projects already underway and making repairs.

While Mercury backpedals in Cancer, 6/7 thru 6/17, reflection on issues relating to family, security, emotional expression and your “worry style” is emphasized. With Mercury retrograde in Gemini, 6/18 through 7/1, you may find it optimal to scrutinize how you learn and communicate.

Is relationship challenge arising with Venus quincunx Mars? See what adjustments you can make to deal with the core issue, instead of just putting a band-aid on the symptoms. With Venus in sensual Taurus and libidinous Mars in partner-focused Libra, it might also be fun to adjust your lovemaking routine to something new and exciting!

6/8 (Sun)

There’s some challenge in the air with the Geminian Sun square Chiron and quincunx Saturn. The likelihood is greater than usual that you might experience some manner of wounding or restriction. This could express itself as some authority trying to lay down the law about how you should think or communicate.

On the high side, this energy can be great for refining thoughts and words, as well as mentoring and healing.

Erotic or sensual indulgence is one way to play Taurean Venus trine Pluto. You can also focus on money matters, easier-than-usual relationship transformation, and shamanic immersion into nature’s living consciousness.

Void-of-Course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.

  • 6/3, 10:42 am – 6/4, 10:21 am (Virgo)
  • 6/6, 5:13 am – 10:02 pm (Libra)
  • 6/8, 3:47 pm – 6/9, 6:40 am (Scorpio)

Whatever your Sun Sign, Benjamin’s forecasts can help you make the best use of the current astrological energies.

All dates and times are in the U.S. eastern time zone. Events are most powerful on the dates listed, but their influence will be active for at least several days before and after.

Everyone is affected by these global transits. However, you will be most powerfully impacted when moving planets activate sensitive points in your natal chart.
