Also read the NEW June 2021 Monthly Astrology Horoscope Overview here.
This week starts out with Mercury Retrograde in Gemini since May 29, 2021. With Mercury now in Trickster mode we can expect miscommunications to contend with for the next few weeks. For more details, I’ve already talked a lot about Mercury Retrograde last week, and Mercury Retrograde in Gemini here. Mercury will be Retrograde in Gemini until June 22, 2021.
It’s interesting that we are seeing a lot of tables turning on information recently, and a lot of backtracking. Exposure of what the media and social media have selectively chosen to hide for political purposes, is getting hotter. What could have come out much earlier, but was intentionally silenced and covered up due to bias and “debunked by fact checkers,” is now being revealed to actually be the case.
To start this week, Mars in Cancer connects with Neptune in fellow water sign Pisces on May 31, 2021 at 1:15 am ET. And then in a few days on June 5, 2021 Mars is going to be in opposition to Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn at 3:44 pm ET. This week could be a big deal. Emotional reactions can lead to strong, karmic outcomes. Confusion and miscommunications thanks to Mercury Retrograde now too can lead to some challenges, especially over contradictions of thoughts, opinions, facts, misinformation and beliefs.
Especially with Mars the warrior in opposition to Pluto this week, we can expect strong tension of opposition between those in powerful positions of authority in politics and business in contrast to people’s personal lives and goals. The protective, defensive quality of Mars in Cancer can get heated against the overbearing complications, power plays and rules imposed by the ego-driven decisions of those in powerful, authoritative positions with Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn. Tensions between bosses and employees could be more notable, and those working from home could feel more pressure now. In personal situations, if things get heated, the best solutions can be found when compassion and empathy are priorities.
The symbolism of Mars in Cancer in opposition to Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn could also be like a nuclear submarine.
Also on May 31st, The Sun meets the Destiny Point in Gemini at 8:11 pm ET indicating a major opportunity for an increase in awareness, with the potential for many epiphanies and revelations. We could certainly seem some big news this week that wakes a lot of people up. It would be wise to take special note of messages and information that shows up for you personally now. Awareness of how propaganda and deception operates in our world to sway opinions toward an intended larger goal is also of key importance now.
The Destiny Point in Gemini reminds us that it is wise to pay attention to what happens in the tech and communications sector these days because it has a significant influence on our future. To create a more positive future, this is the time to put extra effort in to know the truth because our decisions based on information we are exposed to has a direct influence on the future we are creating. With Mercury Retrograde now we could have mixed messages and confusion, so through it all, it will take effort to focus on the positive vision for the future.
The Sun also connects with Chiron in Aries on June 2, 2021 at 7:22 am ET which is a positive indication of healing, or at least admitting, old wounds from the past now. Communicating truth and dealing with the ego are of key importance to healing this week. Mercury Retrograde also adds a reminder that dealing with the past is indicated, but finding the right words and getting your message across clearly can be challenging.
Also on June 2nd, we have Venus entering Cancer at 9:18 am ET. Venus brings our attention to what we really value most, and in Cancer (along with Mars in Cancer now too) it enhances the protective quality of the home, family and your body. Venus in Cancer wants to feel good, comfortable and loved by those most important. The bonds between mothers and their children can be especially notable now with a desire for closer, emotional connections. This is a good time to take care of your body and your garden. Prioritizing your nutrition and well being and spending time in nature enjoying the beauty and fragrance of flowers is definitely recommended. Venus will be in Cancer until June 27, 2021.
On June 3rd Venus in Cancer connects with Jupiter in fellow water sign Pisces at 7:32 pm ET. Compassion, caring and comfort create closer bonds in relationships, especially family. Enjoying a picnic by the ocean would be quite nice. This would be a great time to appreciate art. Self care, like a wonderful bath or relaxing by the beach is recommended. Learning a lot of information this week could feel like floodgates are opening.
Also on June 3rd we have the Sun in Gemini connecting with Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius at 3:05 pm ET. We could see significant revelations this week about people in authority, especially in the tech-social sector. We could see truth revealed about what’s going on behind the scenes that wakes people up. Changes in restrictions to people’s social lives can get attention.
On June 5th we have Mercury Retrograde in Gemini in a difficult aspect to Neptune in Pisces at 3:03 pm ET. Miscommunications and information that is not clear can create much turbulence and instability. We could see more cyber issues this week. Learning of deceptions can be a real eye opener.
And, as mentioned earlier, we have Mars in Cancer in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn to finish off the week on June 5, 2021 at 3:44 pm ET.
