Aries

June marks the end of a difficult phase, as you decide to move ahead, leaving unpleasant experiences behind. While this transition may seem difficult, take heart that you are on the right path. June will bring you opportunities that allow your talents to shine. A new job prospect or project may come your way. Your divine message is to allow yourself to receive help. You may have felt guilty in the past while accepting help from others. However, this assistance is a part of your answered prayer. There are people willing to support you in your endeavours. You also need to believe in yourself if you want to get somewhere. Your romance message for the month is to pay attention to the red flags in your relationship. If something seems “off” about a person you just met, then this sign is a caution for you to proceed carefully. Examine any unhealthy habits and signs in your relationship that need to be addressed. It’s better to be safe than sorry!

Taurus

You have some brilliant ideas that carry great potential and need execution in June. However, watch who you share your deep, intimate secrets with, as not everyone will have your best interests in mind. It’s good to focus on your goals, but don’t ignore your other priorities at the moment. Travel brings you favourable news. You will receive the help you are seeking in the nick of time. Your divine message in June is to simplify your life. You need to de-clutter your internal and external environment. Take note of any and all activities that are unimportant at this time and are distracting you from the task at hand. Let go of habits, people, and things that are keeping you away from utilizing your time effectively. In romance, friends will play an important role in supporting you this month. You may even meet that special someone through one of your friends.

Gemini

Time to choose a new direction, Gemini. You may be lacking motivation in general and asking for meaning and excitement in your life. June brings you a fresh wave of ideas and opportunities. Say “goodbye” to the old and “hello” to the new. You may be feeling skeptical when it comes to accepting these new offers, as you ask “what next?” Too much time spent in contemplation is time lost, so be willing to act. Your finances look good in June and there may be a sudden windfall, bringing in abundance. Pay attention to the new paths that are opening for you and let your intuition guide you. In romance, you could meet “the one” this month – the person you just met and connect so deeply with could be the love of a lifetime. Existing relationships improve.

Cancer

June is a month of learning and research for Cancerians. You will spend much time in your own company and may also embark on an inner journey, looking for more meaning and wisdom. You may be sailing through emotional ups and downs, which can blur your ability to think clearly. Your message of manifestation this month is to be careful what you wish for. Your thoughts and emotions rapidly attract your desires, which also means you will attract that which you fear or don’t wish for. You are also guided to pay special attention to all forms of communication, which may unintentionally lead to misunderstandings. Your romance message for June is to learn from your mistakes and forgive. One of the main roadblocks in your romantic life has to do with releasing old hurt and healing from any past wounds. Let go of toxic energy and people, and any feelings of anger, hatred, blame and guilt, to manifest more happiness in your love life.

Leo

Not everyone is going to understand your intentions in June and this may also mean that you will gain much disapproval or opposition. What will keep you going is your sheer will power and persistence. Muster your inner strength and deal with conflicts firmly. If you are thinking of starting something new, June is an excellent month. Your message of manifestation is to stop doubting your abilities. You are ready and you have all the ingredients to concoct the recipe of success. All you need is some expert advice or a mentor, who can help you broaden your perspective and thereby, help you gain more information about a project in hand. Your Romance message of the month is to know that you are lovable and that you deserve love. Some of you may have had a recent fall out, which may have bruised your ego and self-esteem. You need a gentle reminder that you are a perfect, positive source of energy and that you deserve more. Avoid people and situations that makes you feel otherwise. 

Virgo

June brings you security and comfort. As a matter of fact, you may be too comfortable and in need of a stimulating change, which can help you learn and grow. Your message of manifestation this month is to explore your options and to push yourself out of the comfort zone. If you have been contemplating “what next?” then it is time to sink your teeth into different ventures and experiences. Forgiveness is also your key message this month. This refers to both forgiving others and yourself. A situation from your past could be holding you back from moving forward. Once you decide to release any old hurt, the doors of manifestation will miraculously open for you. Your romance message of the month suggests that soon you will be meeting “The One” or, if you have recently started dating, your partner could become the romantic lover of a lifetime. In existing relationships, it is important to remember why you and your partner came together and rekindle the missing passion.

Libra

June is a highly favorable month for Librans. There is much potential that lies ahead of you and now is the best time to make plans for the future and take active steps towards your dreams. For some of you, travel will bring good news and help you expand your horizon. Your message of manifestation is to simply make a wish and watch it come true. Of course, this also means adopting a positive outlook and asking the Universe to grant you what you want, and then remaining in that stream of positive vibration. That will help speed up the outcome. Your ability to manifest is enhanced in June, so to speak, and therefore you also need to be careful not to harbor any negative or fear based thoughts. Your romance message says that you may be meeting someone special this month. Love is in the air and you will enjoy domestic bliss and passion in June. Love is the fuel that will keep you going. Pay attention to the people who come into your life, as a chance meeting is not just a coincidence.

Scorpio

There will be times this month when you will feel like giving up or settling for something small. You may have waited long to reap the fruits of your labour and may find yourself on the verge of quitting. Your message of manifestation is to increase your standards this month and be patient. Don’t compromise. You deserve better and a promising outcome is on its way. You are much closer to your desired results than you think, even though you can’t seem to feel any changes now. Your health shows improvement as you learn to take good care of your inner and outer self. Aim for peaceful resolution and avoid stress. Your romance message of the month talks about being forgiving and learning from your mistakes. There is something from your past that is blocking your experiences in the present. Identify this block and release it, as it is contributing to stress and unpleasant outcome in your current love life. Forgive yourself and others.

Sagittarius

June brings a shift in energy as you complete one cycle and start a new one. Fortune and luck are on your side. Your circumstances are changing for good and the Universe smiles and blesses you with all the goodies you have felt the lack of in the past. Your message of manifestation is to stay optimistic and have faith. What you have asked for is coming. Stay positive and follow your divine guidance. Even if you are finding it hard to settle in with the changes in your environment, give yourself some time, as the near future has many more blessings in store for you. Do not rush and avoid being greedy. Your romance message of the month is strongly connected to your friends. Love seeks you through others. Be more willing to share your feelings with friends if you are looking for a fresh perspective and advice. Some of you will benefit from spending time with friends you have ignored for a while. There is something special about your friends this month.

Capricorn

This is a month to shine and feel your personal power, Capricorn. You will be in the public eye and many will look up to you for advice and solutions. You may also meet someone who is fiery, passionate, and full of ideas. As a matter of fact, you will meet many helpful people in June who will offer their support and assistance to you. Do not shy away or feel guilty about accepting this help. Your message of manifestation is to dream big, especially if you have harboured any negative thoughts about yourself. It is very crucial for you to remain positive this month. You are not a victim of outside circumstances, but your own mind. See yourself succeeding. Your romance tip of the month highlights a happy event. This could be an engagement or wedding. Your love life improves and commitments grow stronger. A new romance may also have the potential to end up in marriage, in the near future.

Aquarius

You will need to exercise practical thinking and intelligence with all day to day affairs in June. Examine your choices by keeping your emotions aside. You are likely to deal with some form of authority and scrutiny this month. Your message of manifestation for June is asking you to focus on your self-worth. Have you been feeling undeserving and unworthy of receiving help? If your self-esteem has taken a blow in the past, it is time to work around it and release any blocks. Trust is an important factor when it comes to manifestation, so look at yourself and your situations in a positive light. Your romance message for the month is to seek out more information about a confusing situation by talking things out with friends. Do not bottle up your feelings. Allow your near and dear ones to offer you support and guidance.

Pisces

Big changes are in store for you in June, Pisces. You are leaving behind something old and moving on to something new. This change opens the door for abundance. Situations that previously seemed stuck will be resolved. Your message of manifestation is asking you to stay open to receiving help. You will find that unexpected help comes to you in June through various means. Stop feeling guilty or ashamed in accepting this help. Some of your desires will be fully realized in the near future, so stay positive. Your romance message of the month is to spend some quality time with your beloved by getting to know each other well. Do not rush into commitments just yet, especially if you have recently started seeing someone. In existing relationships, have a heart to heart talk with your partner to open the channels of communication and get to the root of the matter.

New Study Finds Humans Can Access a Higher Level of Consciousness

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new study sheds light on the existence of a higher level of consciousness in humans that is accessible.

  • Reflect On:

    Does consciousness originate in the brain or somewhere else? What does this say about who 'we' are as humans?

Before you begin...

New research has discovered verifiable evidence of a higher level of consciousness. Researchers used brain imaging equipment to analyze the small magnetic fields created in the brain and discovered that, across three psychedelic substances, one measure of conscious level — neural signal diversity — was consistently greater.

Neuroscientists discovered a prolonged increase in neural signal diversity — a measure of the complexity of brain activity — in persons under the influence of psychedelic substances as compared to when they were awake.

The variety of brain impulses gives a mathematical indicator of awareness degree. People who are awake, for example, have more diversified brain activity than those who are asleep, according to this measure.

However, this is the first study to show that brain-signal diversity is more than baseline, that is, greater than in someone who is merely ‘awake and aware.’ Previous research has focused on decreased states of awareness, such as sleep, anesthesia, or the so-called vegetative state. More research utilizing complex and diverse models is required, according to the researchers, who are cautiously hopeful.

Professor Anil Seth, Co-Director of the University of Sussex’s Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science, stated:

“This discovery demonstrates that the brain on psychedelics functions quite differently than usual.”

“As evaluated by ‘global signal diversity,’ the electrical activity of the brain during the psychedelic experience is less predictable and less ‘integrated’ than during regular conscious wakefulness.”

“Since this measure has already shown its value as a measure of ‘conscious level’, we can say that the psychedelic state appears as a higher ‘level’ of consciousness than normal — but only with respect to this specific mathematical measure.”

For the study, Michael Schartner, Adam Barrett, and Professor Seth of the Sackler Centre reanalyzed data that had previously been collected by Imperial College London and the University of Cardiff in which healthy volunteers were given one of three drugs known to induce a psychedelic state: psilocybin, ketamine, and LSD.

Using brain imaging equipment, scientists examined the small magnetic fields created in the brain and discovered that, across all three medicines, this measure of conscious level — neural signal diversity — was consistently greater.

The researchers emphasize that this does not imply that the psychedelic state is a “better” or “more desirable” state of consciousness; rather, it demonstrates that the psychedelic brain state is distinct and can be related to other global changes in conscious level (e.g., sleep, anesthesia) by using a simple mathematical measure of signal diversity.

“That identical improvement in signal diversity was discovered for all three medications, despite their rather distinct pharmacology, are both quite remarkable and also encouraging that the results are robust and reproducible,” said Dr. Muthukumaraswamy, who was involved in all three original research.

The findings might help feed ongoing conversations concerning the strictly supervised medical usage of such medications, such as in the treatment of severe depression.

“Rigorous research into psychedelics is garnering greater interest, not least because of the therapeutic potential that these substances may have when taken wisely and under medical supervision,” said Dr. Robin Cahart-Harris of Imperial College London.

“The current study’s findings assist us to comprehend what happens in people’s brains when they experience psychedelic consciousness expansion. People frequently report having “insight” when using these substances, and when this occurs in a therapeutic setting, it can predict beneficial outcomes. The current discoveries may help us understand how this is possible.”

In addition to informing potential medical applications, the study contributes to developing scientific knowledge of how conscious level (how conscious one is) and conscious content (what one is conscious of) are connected.

According to Professor Seth:

“We discovered links between the intensity of subjects’ psychedelic experiences and variations in signal diversity. This shows that our metric is closely related not just to global brain alterations caused by medicines, but also to features of brain dynamics that underpin specific kinds of conscious experience.”

The study team is currently concentrating their efforts on determining how particular alterations in information flow in the brain underpin certain components of the psychedelic experience, such as hallucinations.

Does Consciousness Create Our Material Reality?

CE Staff Writer 7 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new study authored by Robert Lanza suggests observers" are responsible for determining physical reality, and that conscious observers themselves generate and create the structures of time and space.

  • Reflect On:

    We observers, people like you and I, are responsible for how consciousness forms into physical matter, what does this say about the power of our individual and collective beliefs?

Before you begin...

Where does the “physical” world come from? Matter at its smallest observable form, atoms, pop in and out of existence all the time. The idea that physical matter is birthed from a non physical realm, such as the “quantum vacuum” or the “void”, or something else we are unaware of is not novel.  Nikola Tesla himself believed that “all perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or tenuity beyond conception, filling all space, the akasha, or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life-giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never-ending cycles all things and phenomena.” (Man’s Greatest Achievement, 1907)

A paper published by Parahamsa Tewari in the journal Physics Essays explains,

“A century from now, it will be well known that: the vacuum of space which fills the universe is itself the real substratum of the universe; vacuum in a circulating state becomes matter; the electron is the fundamental particle of matter and is a vortex of vacuum with a vacuum-less void at the center and it is dynamically stable; the speed of light relative to vacuum is the maximum speed that nature has provided and is an inherent property of the vacuum; vacuum is a subtle fluid unknown in material media; vacuum is mass-less, continuous, non viscous, and incompressible and is responsible for all the properties of matter; and that vacuum has always existed and will exist forever….Then scientists, engineers and philosophers will bend their heads in shame knowing that modern science ignored the vacuum in our chase to discover reality for more than a century.”

This non-physical “field” may also be dark energy, we don’t really know or understand it quite well, but we know it exists. A declassified Defense Intelligence Agency document touches on this,

“We do not understand why it exists or how it is created; we simply know it provides an ever-present force on spacetime, causing the universe to expand. Indeed, recent high-precision experimental observations indicate dark energy may be a cosmological vacuum energy.”

So, if our material world is birthed from this non material “stuff”, does consciousness play a factor? It’s interesting to contemplate, especially given the fact that consciousness is not a physical thing, nor is it the result of any known physical process or biology. You cannot pinpoint or find the source of consciousness within the brain. Even at the quantum level, factors associated with consciousness have been known to change the behavior of matter, like photons, suggesting that matter itself may be a conscious perceiving thing.

Does this mean that all “physical” things possess some type of consciousness? Photons don’t have a brain, do they? What about plants? There is a growing amount of evidence suggesting that plants act and behave in ways suggesting that they are a thinking things, capable of feelings, emotions, perceptions and thoughts.

If consciousness can have such an influence over matter, and is a non physical property that exists within all physical things, could it somehow be responsible for the creation of reality? This has been a common theme discussed within the realms of quantum physics for quite some time. In fact, the discussion of “ether”, this non physical, indescribable “stuff” has been the subject of contemplation for thousands of years. Plato wrote about the ether  in his work Phaedo, and explained how life exists within it. He believed what air is to us, the ether is to them. Is the ether alive? Is the universe itself, which could be primarily made up of this non-physical stuff, a conscious living entity?

You cannot explain consciousness in terms of the existing fundamentals like space, time, mass,  and charge. As a result, the logical thing to do is postulate whether consciousness itself is something fundamental to the existence of reality, to view consciousness itself as one of these fundamentals.

“Why do you insist the universe is not a conscious intelligence, when it gives birth to conscious intelligences?” Cicero, c. 44 BCE 

A New Paper

Another paper has emerged claiming that “observers” are responsible for determining physical reality, and that conscious observers themselves generate and create the structures of time and space.

What’s interesting to contemplate here is that, if this is true, it would include all “observers” within the universe itself, not just human observers. It reminds me of the double slit experiment, where tiny bits of matter are shot through a slit forming what’s called a wave pattern of probabilities and possibilities, but when an observer is introduced the wave function collapses.

One of the authors of the paper, Robert Lanza, told Big Think that observers can dramatically affect the “behavior of observable quantities” both at a microscopic and massive spatiotemporal scales. In fact, a “profound shift in our ordinary everyday worldview” is necessary. The world is not something that is formed outside of us, simply existing on its own. “Observers ultimately define the structure of physical reality itself.”

How does this work? Lanza contends that a network of observers is necessary and is “inherent to the structure of reality.” As he explains, observers — you, me, and anyone else — live in a quantum gravitational universe and come up with “a globally agreed-upon cognitive model” of reality by exchanging information about the properties of spacetime. “For, once you measure something,” Lanza writes, “the wave of probability to measure the same value of the already probed physical quantity becomes ‘localized’ or simply ‘collapses.'” That’s how reality comes to be consistently real to us all. Once you keep measuring a quantity over and over, knowing the result of the first measurement, you will see the outcome to be the same

The implications of this are and have always been quite large. The idea that consciousness itself is fundamental to reality suggests that it must have played an integral part in the creation of reality, that consciousness itself had to exist prior to the birth of physical material reality. One could go on and on contemplating things like: if consciousness is fundamental to the creation of physical matter, then what created consciousness itself? Where does consciousness itself originate from? Does existence itself even have a beginning? Can the future change the past, can the past change the future?

Who knows, but the most important point to takeaway here is that consciousness itself is fundamental to the creation of our physical experience. If we want to change the world, ultimately we have to change the way we think, feel and perceive. This is a key factor that is directly intertwined with the type human experience we create for ourselves.

This is why, perhaps, sometimes it seems that the greatest resource for powerful people, politicians and corporations is human consciousness itself.  If we ourselves determine what direction humanity heads simply by what we think and feel, just imagine what somebody could do if they could manipulate that aspect within us? The state of the world today, some might say, is chaotic, and that could be a direct result of the fact that the collective mind and heart is not in a state of coherence.

You might say “we are all over the place.” We’re separated by our beliefs and unable to come together in understanding and harmony. This collective state of being in turn will create a physical experience that reflects that, which is exactly what we are seeing today and have seen throughout human history.

Below is a great little documentary from a colleague of mine, it’s based off an essay he wrote for his philosophy master’s degree. It dives a bit deeper into this discussion.

‘Ring Of Fire’ Solar Eclipse In Gemini: A Shift In Mindset

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

We are having a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini on June 10th which peaks at 10:42am Universal Time. It will be an annular eclipse which is when the Moon almost completely blocks out the Sun with the exception of its outer edges. It appears like this because the Moon is near its apogee, which is its furthest distance from the Earth. This type of eclipse is also referred to as a ‘Ring of Fire’ due to it appearing this way.

The full annular eclipse will only be visible from parts of Northern Ontario (Canada), parts of Northern Quebec (Canada), parts of Nunavut (Canada) as well as Northwestern Greenland and a portion of Eastern Russia. It will be seen as a partial eclipse throughout most of Canada (with the exception of Southwestern part), the Northern half of Alaska, most of Eastern USA, parts of North Central USA, Greenland, most of Russia, most of Europe, and parts of Asia closer to Russia. However, from some of these locations the Sun will be barely eclipsed and with a shorter window to see it.

A Solar Eclipse is a much more significant type of New Moon which influences a longer term period then a regular one. This is when it occurs near the Lunar Nodes, which is where the path of the Sun and Moon intersect from our perspective on Earth. This happens every six months, along with Full Moon Lunar Eclipses happening prior or following. In this specific case we had a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius two weeks before this one. You can read more about that one here.

Both Solar and Lunar Eclipses reflect changes and shifts which affect the following six months and could also influence up to six weeks prior. You may or may not see the effects of it around the time it occurs, but you may feel it and then see it play out in the weeks or months afterwards.

Eclipses are always part of a series that occur in the same opposing signs for 1.5 to 2 years which is where the Lunar Nodes are for most of that period. The positions of the Eclipses and the Lunar Nodes reflect an evolutionary process in how we work with the energies of these signs and pertaining to the areas of our lives being affected (based on our astrological blueprint at the specific time of each of our birth). What results from a series of eclipses in the same signs over these approximately 1.5  to 2 year periods may have longer-term effects beyond the window in which they occur.

North Node Solar Eclipse In Gemini

The shifts reflected by this eclipse are connected to Gemini themes and areas of life, ultimately leading to a revision in how its energies are expressed. It is near the Lunar North Node which in many cases could also indicate changes that have an increasing effect on Gemini expressions.

This process is something that began a year ago and will play out until the end of the year. However, this energy will be the most prominent now, from late Spring to Early Summer. This is because it will be the only Solar Eclipse in Gemini (in this eclipse series) along with its ruler Mercury being retrograde here as well.

Gemini belongs to the Air element which is socially and intellectually oriented. As a Mercurial sign, it is associated with the mind, communication, information, words, writing, facts, curiosity, and commuting. Gemini energy is adaptable, dualistic, agile, versatile, rational, and quick witted yet can also be restless, scattered, duplicitous, overly talkative, and superficial.

Gemini correlates with our local/immediate environment, neighborhood, neighbors, siblings/cousins, communication devices/computers, childhood education, vehicles, and friends/acquaintances from earlier years. Gemini energy is also associated with LGBTQ+ matters as well the different expressions and orientations under that umbrella.

Solar Eclipse Conjunct Mercury Retrograde, Applying Square To Neptune

As mentioned above, Gemini’s ruler Mercury is also retrograde in its own sign of Gemini. What is very interesting is that the halfway point of this (three and a half week) retrograde process will occur hours after this eclipse. This is when Mercury is aligned with the Sun (and the Moon in this case), known as its ‘inferior conjunction’, and is a very significant period of the entire retrograde.

The ‘inferior conjunction’ is a time in which Mercury passes through the heart of the Sun  (from a geocentric perspective) and is symbolically seen as a ‘purification’. In our real world experience, it can be a time of ridding ourselves of certain thoughts, ideas, perceptions, old interests, expectations, or other things that are not serving us while the potential for new ones may be seeded. We may experience important insights that can contribute to this process. Although this technically occurs on June 10th/11th, these themes can also play out in the days surrounding this period.

Considering that this significant astronomical event is occurring in the hours following the eclipse, this can suggest that the Mercury retrograde effect of re-calibrating our minds and perception can also be a major part of a longer term astrological backdrop over this following six months that is under the influence of this eclipse. This is a rare occurrence to have both of these happening at the same time, and its even more rare and interesting that it is all happening in a sign that Mercury rules.

The Sun and Moon in this Solar Eclipse are also moving towards a square with Neptune in Pisces. This can add to the scattering and lack of focus reflective of Gemini and the Sagittarian energy of the previous Lunar eclipse in the same nodal polarity. This can also bring confusion, uncertainty, and deception.

Facts, details, and rational thinking can be in conflict with illusions, fantasy, escapism, and ideals. Issues around lack of boundaries may also be a theme over the coming months. This energy can be good for creative efforts that are mentally or communication oriented, or spiritual practices that involve air such as breathwork and meditation. Some of this can play out around June 13th/14th when the Sun makes an exact square with Neptune.

Saturn In Aquarius Square Uranus In Taurus

This month Saturn in Aquarius is currently in its 2nd exact square with Uranus in Taurus which I have mentioned in previous articles. This started in February when the first square occurred and is present all of this year and somewhat next year. This month, especially from June 8th-20th, will be one of the stronger periods of this energy especially when it peaks around June 14th/15th.

This reflects tension and challenges between Saturn and Uranus themes or expressions. Saturn is traditional, conservative, serious, rational, and cautious. It rules commitments, maturity, responsibilities, limitations, restrictions, the status quo, the established order,  and structures. It is about patience, practicality, discipline, and boundaries.

Uranus is freedom seeking, detached, revolutionary, radical, rebellious, progressive, reforming, idealistic, unconventional, inventive, innovative, futuristic, and scientific. It represents new technology, discoveries, surprises, disruptions, and separations.

This configuration can play out as ‘old versus new’, ‘restrictions versus freedom’, ‘the status quo versus revolution’, ‘commitments/responsibilities versus liberation’, ‘elder versus youth’, ‘progressiveness versus tradition’ and so forth. This can also be a time of integrating Saturn and Uranus such as applying new, technological, scientific, or metaphysical approaches to help us with our work.

In some cases we can express a certain mix of combined Saturn-Uranus themes and be at odds with a different mix of these energies. Depending on the variables, this can potentially lead to contradictions or hypocrisy.

Venus ‘Out Of Bounds’, Square Chiron & Sextile Uranus

Venus, the planet of love, relationships, friends, social life, values, money, beauty, art, and aesthetics, went ‘out of bounds’ on May 23/24th which will last until June 17th/18th. This when a planet moves outside of the boundaries in the sky which the Sun travels from our perspective on Earth. This is about exploring new territory as well as going outside of our usual limitations and conventional ways of doing things in regards to how we approach Venus areas of life. This can also reflect seeing things objectively and from a different perspective.

At the time of this eclipse, Venus in Cancer is moving towards a square with Chiron in Aries which will be exact on June 12th/13th. This can bring up wounds, blockages, negative patterns, or can reflect themes around healing, holistic perception, or perhaps solutions when it comes to love, friendships, pleasures, values, or monetary issues. In some cases these themes may be tied into family matters, security, or emotional needs being at odds with our individuality and personal needs.

Venus is also in a sextile with Uranus in Taurus which can bring a new, stimulating, unusual, exciting, inspiring, liberating, unexpected, or unique energy around our relations with others.  This can also reflect surprises, positive changes, or freeing type of developments around financial matters.

In some cases it can be good for exploring new ways of making money that can be innovative, online, metaphysical, or technologically oriented. This will be strongest on June 13th/14th but it’s possible that our experiences of both this Venus-Uranus configuration and the Venus-Chiron one mentioned above may be intertwined.

Things To Consider

Is there something that you need to shift when it comes to your mindset? Do any of your perceptions, thoughts, ideas, or approaches to communication need to be revised? What has been coming up for you that can be contributing to this process? Is there anything that you need to change or adjust when it comes to your relationship with neighbors, close friends, siblings, or extended family? Are your sources of information reliable, factual, and rational? Do you need to look at things more objectively?

These are just some examples of themes that could come up during this period and over the coming months; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out as well.  This isn’t a time to necessarily set intentions but instead to embrace the evolutionary process that eclipses facilitate. It will peak and reach its maximum eclipse at 10:42am Universal Time on June 10th while it will begin and finish approximately two and a half hours before and after.
