June 2018 — Bring on the HEAT!
By Gwynne Mayer
The Month of June brings duality to the forefront. Who to believe, words don’t matter, actions do matter, double speak abounds!??? There will be many issues brought to the forefront this month, both personally and socially, all of which are food for more discussion and thought, however these issues may not be solved in any way. Actions this month are speaking loudly and clearly in every phase of life. It is time to become the ‘observer’ in your own life and clean up what you can, don’t try changing others as it just adds more stress to your life. Take quiet time on the solstice, June 21, and celebrate QUIETLY and with great contemplation. This is not a time to gossip or buy into to all the folderal around you. Try to be the objective observer and truly observe yourself and reactions to others.
The dates to look at this month are important as they relate to change and the dynamics of change that occur in the outer world and the inner world. Because of this month being in the sign of the ‘twins’ and the duality that exists in this Gemini/Sagittarius paradox, the forecast will be how each sign wrestles with this duality during the month of Gemini.

Remember to read your Ascendant (ego/physical body), Sun (Spiritual/mind) and Moon (emotional/feeling/nurturing) signs in that order when reading these monthly updates.
So let’s get started on your Sun, Ascendant and Moon for June:
Focusing on the Polarities (Shadow) of each sign will give us an idea how to work with our ‘inner awareness’.
Aries — Aries duality is one of Independence vs. Dependence and as we look at the strongest side (Independence), the weaker side of Libra would be Dependence (mostly on relationships). Aries is finding it difficult to maneuver through June without feeling alone and totally responsible which is exactly what the Aries has created. The feeling of ‘no relationship available’ is because the Aries longs for the ‘ideal relationship’ and equal partnership which is always on the verge of happening but never seems to get there! Become the friend and mate you want and all of a sudden, you will find that ‘other’.
Taurus — Taurus polarity is one of Taurus/Scorpio and deals with Sensuality vs. Sexuality. This is difficult when Taurus is not taking time to get physical sensitivities taken care of, spending some money on massage and physical health, instead of being stingy with money for self care. The duality is the sexuality arena of not paying attention to the Scorpio side of sexuality and instinct, paying attention to the instinctual senses and working with the sexual conflict within relationships. This month is a time to get in touch with that duality.
Gemini — Gemini is enjoying this month of having friends to talk to and be with, with communication going both ways instead of living in that communication gap between the Gemini/Sagittarius, Student/Teacher polarity. Gemini wrestles with being able to stand in the authority of being the ‘teacher’ and Sagittarius wrestles with the idea of being a student while in the role of the teacher. Often the Gemini gets caught up betwixt and between and confused as to what and who is someone they can learn from and then take that ‘learning’ and turn it into a ‘teaching moment’. Stand in your own authority and quit waiting for that point in time where you are validated by someone else!
Cancer — Cancer/Capricorn is the polarity and duality we are looking at with this sign; Feeling Home and Family vs. Grounded Career and Social Position. Oftentimes the Cancer is taken up by family worries and concerns, mate, children and gets overwhelmed with the duties of career and money making, not to mention the status in social position. Cancer needs to watch both family and financial concerns, instead of trying to make two ends meet. The Capricorn side is overwhelmed in that area and often very successful in business taking the Cancer away from the family….a conundrum for sure!
Leo — Leos get caught up in the strange polarity of Self-will vs. Humanitarian Friends only. The Leo is definitely watching out for self/Self and will forsake all others to go for controlling a successful outcome, while the detached part of the Leo (Aquarius) does not really relate intimately to the needs of others and finds others often too needy. This is a real battle of inner wills For a Leo to really be successful, the needs of self are of major importance and especially in the disciplines needed to take care of that self. Leos can be very lazy in this regard and totally detached from their own ‘needs.’
Virgo — Virgos are caught up in the polarity of Analytical vs. Idealism, Virgo/Pisces. The Virgo often cannot make a decision without analyzing and picking the subject matter apart to such an extent that the decision is never a ‘final one.’ On the other hand the Pisces part of the Virgo is working with the ‘ideal’ rather than the ‘reality’ and gets caught up in not seeing the whole forest but focusing on the individual trees one by one. Meditation and contemplation are a way of silencing all of this inner talk and helps the Virgo move forward for a better outcome no matter the decision!
Libra — Libra polarities are (Contemplative Indecisiveness) and Aries (Impulsive Decisiveness). Those who are in relationship with a Libra Sun, Moon or Ascendant, know how the Libra depends on you to make decisions and be the ‘initiator of any action.’ Librans are very intelligent, but also love to weigh all possibilities to the point of frustration. I call them a ‘brain storming’ sign as they want to talk everything out so that no decision will be made without all points considered and taken into account. When I am working with Libra, I only give them one choice to make and don’t present them with anything that will lead to confusion.
Scorpio — All Scorpios are wrestling with the polarity of (Intense Intimacy) compared to the opposite sign of Taurus (Possessive Intimacy) and the two seem to struggle with what ‘In-To-Me-See’ really means. Scorpios may keep their intensity to a secretive lifetime mission, but recently many Scorpios have found themselves alone and unable to meet their own needs. It might be because they are not really open with the other in their life that needs to hear what those needs really are. Scorpio needs to wake up and smell the roses and sensitize themselves to what others are also going through and then set the ‘field of action.’
Sagittarius — The polarities of Sagittarius are (Philosophical/Spiritual Conversations) and Gemini (Information and Fundamental Sharing) and one is often the ‘shadow’ of the other. These days the Sagittarius is on a quest for higher learning and spiritual development, but also needs to stay grounded in the fundamentals of what is going on around them. Get the head out of the clouds and make sure that others understand what you are saying and meaning by what you say. Often your language and wording is unclear and it is necessary for you to check that the persons you are speaking with understand you clearly. Check for understanding!
Capricorn — Capricorn’s polarities are only noticeable to them usually because they are usually coming from their own ‘authority’ and do not recognize the ambiguity in some of their actions. Cancer (concern for family matters and feelings) are often at odds with Capricorn’s (Practicality and Common Sense) even though they are great partners, one shadowing the other. It is important nowadays for Capricorn to pay attention to health and practicalities in money matters, especially when ‘family’ is involved.
Aquarius — Aquarians are having to face the ‘reality’ of being on the earth in an earth body. Their polarities are (Humanitarianism/Altruism vs. Leo Self Will/Authority). It is often an abrupt shock when something occurs that gets the attention of the Aquarian. Lately the Aquarians are feeling one shock after another about being ‘in body’, either through health issues or someone not living up to a contract, verbally or non-verbally. Check for what you understand about reality Aquarius and start disciplining yourself to the ‘real world.’ All else will fall in place and you will see what you have been missing.
Pisces — Neptune transiting your sign has also caused greater confusion than what Pisces usually goes through. However the Polarities for Pisces (Idealism/Ethereal) thinking and Virgo (Analytic/Realism) have had to balance during this time because it is no longer okay for Pisces to be idealistic about what is going on in career, relationships or health issues. Now more than ever Pisces needs help in organization, keeping tabs on day to day activities and being more of decisions that demand ‘common sense.’ A major wake up call for Pisces is NOW!
