In this episode, I talk about the astrology of June 2021. Since this month has a lot of important astrological aspects, I’m going to go through them week by week instead of all in one go.
Here’s a summary of the first week of June astrological aspects/ingresses I talk about in the podcast:
Mercury is stationing retrograde in Gemini on May 29/30
The Sun in Gemini is conjunct the North Node on June 1
Venus ingresses into Cancer on June 2
Venus in Cancer is trine Jupiter in Pisces on June 4 – a day of good fortune!
Retrograde Mercury is square Neptune on June 5
Mars in Cancer is in opposition to Pluto on June 5
The last two aspects are happening almost simultaneously and really bring with them the potential for emotionally-motivated aggressive, or even violent acts (Mars) on a mass scale (Pluto) which may also be based or greatly influenced by confusion, unclear thinking or miscommunication (Retrograde Mercury square Neptune).

Since this aspect on June 5 is potentially challenging and explosive, I thought I’d do a reading to see if the cards had any advice.
Question: What is the best way to handle the challenges of these aspects around June 5?
I pulled the Hermit, Judgement and the Lovers and interpret the card’s advice as follows:
There may be a loud announcement, or perhaps people digging into each other even more virulently than usual on Twitter & co. (Judgement), which may make you feel like you have to choose sides (the Lovers). But don’t forget, you can always withdraw into yourself and walk away (the Hermit) – sometimes refusing to get involved is the wisest choice of all.
Considering the likely emotional volatility and unclear thinking these aspects suggest, this is very sage advice indeed.
