It’s now the beginning of June and I am happy to tell you that we have some good energies from the Stars that we can work with for manifestation, peace, and magick. Around the 21st of June when we celebrate Litha, or Midsummer as we say in Sweden, things are heating up. So, grab a cup of coffee or tea with me and let´s take it from the beginning.
Big Downloads of Energy
Right now we have Neptune in Pisces (intuition, psychic energy, art) in opposition to Ceres (nourishment, food, caring) in Virgo (earth, body, manifestation). The good thing about this aspect is that it helps to manifest spiritual energy in our physical world and into our bodies. The challenge may be that you can feel overwhelmed by all the energy. You may also crave special food and feel that your body has a mind and will of its own. Your ordinary rhythm of eating and sleeping (Virgo) may become disturbed. If you have a history of allergy of some kind, especially food allergy (Ceres) this could flare up. As an adult it is easier to cope with these changes, for children, teenagers, and animals it is more difficult.
The Asteroid Isis (magick, high frequency, healing) is also in Virgo (goddess, earth magick) at 5 degrees and in opposition to Saturn (manifestation, time) in Pisces (intuition). This aspect is about downloading healing, magick, and upgrading your psychic power. This aspect may also disturb your ordinary rhythm. You may even have a hard time staying awake at work because of all the energy coming through. If great ideas, music, art, or solutions comes to you in the middle of the night, go and write them down! You may not get another chance.
Ceres is in Virgo until the 24th of June. After that she enters into the sign of Libra
Ceres is in opposition to Neptune until the 5th of July
The Magickal Power Nap
My advice to manage these intense downloads of energy is to take “Magickal Power Naps” when you can: 10 to 30 minutes of sleep in the afternoon could do the trick and save your day. It is also wise to be more flexible with the routines for your family. Do what works for the family right now. If a child moves back into your bedroom for a few weeks it´s not the end of the world. Or, if your teenager looks more dead than alive, it may not just be because of late night gaming with friends. Everyone is bombarded with energy right now. Sometimes a flexible Witch is a wise Witch.
Goddess Magick and Opening the Door
Isis is the Egyptian goddess of magick, healing, and many other things. She is sometimes called “The Goddess with 10 000 names”. The asteroid Isis is not just doing what I mentioned above, she is also in a good aspect (trine) to Jupiter (expansion, growth) in Taurus (earth, manifestation, growth) and making good aspects to the moon nodes connected to our past (south node) and our potential future (north node). This could make past-life memories and talents surface. This is a great time for Goddess Magick and working with the divine Feminine. It is also good for deepening your magickal practice. Be aware of new or old interests showing up. They may be of importance and hold important keys to your future. Remember that even if Spirit gives you the Keys, it is up to you to use them and open the door.
Isis in Virgo is making a trine to Jupiter in Taurus until around the 16th of July.
Truce, Peace, or Just Biding Time?
Right now we have the Sun in Gemini (communication, understanding) joining Juno (relationships, partnerships). This can bring peace and understanding in your relationships. Someone or something that has been stressful may find some peace. It could be your relationship with a co-worker, relative, friend, partner or something bigger. This energy is strengthened by Juno making a good aspect to Chiron (healing) in Aries.
A word of warning though: If this is a bigger or more complicated situation, something that has been going on for a long time, it could be wise to not be naïve. The Sun and Juno are making a good aspect to Pallas Athena and Lilith Black Moon in Leo. Even if it is a good aspect, we know by experience that when Lilith Black Moon is involved, the whole story is not visible or out in the open yet. There´s more to come.
My recommendation is to enjoy the peace that is in the moment, accept the truce, but sleep with one eye open. At Midsummer, the 21st of June, Mars (activation) will squeeze in right between Pallas Athena and Lilith Black Moon in Leo (a fiery sign). Together they make a challenging square to Uranus and Vesta (turbulence, fire, eruption) in Taurus. At the same time the Sun (just entered Cancer) and Juno squares and challenges Ceres (relationships ) that has just entered Libra (balance, justice, relationships).
This could indicate the complicated situation becoming active again. A good thing to remember is that even if it seems and feels like the same situation all over again, good things could still have happened during the truce or pause. Good healing could have done great things, it might just not have found its conclusion yet and before that happens it is wise to use caution.
On the collective plane we may see this in the tension between countries, political parties, or in dealing with the economic situation.
If you are celebrating Midsummer, it is wise to be careful and to not forget to think about security around water, boats, fire, and so on. With many placements in Leo (Moon, Venus, Lilith Black Moon, Mars, Pallas Athena) people can easily become overconfident and accidents may occur. This is extra-strong with some of them squaring Vesta and Uranus in Taurus, mentioned above.
Other Dates to Consider
3rd of June – Full Moon in Sagittarius
4th of June – Mercury conjuncts Uranus, great for thinking. Because they meet in Taurus it is a good idea to anchor your ideas before acting on them. Especially looking at finances (Taurus) and if you have the stamina needed to finish the project. The stone fluorite may be helpful in decision-making.
5th of June – Venus enters Leo, great for romance and attraction. Venus is also making an opposition to Pluto, which can create drama and desire. The stone red jasper can help to balance the energy and to make wise decisions in life and in relationships.
11th of June – Pluto moves back into Capricorn again. Great time for working with ancestors and doing deep work. Also great for protection magick. People doing ancestor work may feel this strongly. Pluto leaves Capricorn January 21 in 2024
15th of June – Mercury squares Saturn. Get your great ideas down on paper or they may create stress. Especially if they are of a spiritual nature. Write down those recipes, formulas, and spells. Buy or start a new magickal diary or notebook (BOS)
17th of June – Saturn goes retrograde in Pisces. Finish the projects you started this Spring. Saturn goes direct again on the 4th of November.
18th of June – New Moon in Gemini. Good for working with communication, community, friends, and siblings. Start a new magickal discipline. Start reading a new magickal book.
21st of June – Midsummer, Summer Solstice. Sun enters Cancer. Longest day of the year.
26th of June – Mercury enters Cancer. Communication about family. Good for protection work around family and safe travels. Mars squares Uranus, drive carefully!
30th of June – Neptune goes retrograde. May not be felt by everyone. But people connected strongly with water beings and water magick may feel this strongly. Go to the ocean. Perform water blessings and water magick. Neptune goes direct again on December 6.
We have a lot of energy shifts this month, both high and low. As magickal people, healers, and Witches we have the power to neutralize harmful energies. We can also ground energies that are overloaded and causing turbulence and stress. This is a period when radiating peace, calmness, love, and magick can literally change the world around you. Because so much energy will pass not only through our little place in the universe, but also through ourselves, it is essential to clean, clear, and bless more than usual. This may not be the calmest of month as a Witch, but surely one of the more interesting and magickal.
