GALACTICLY SPEAKING By Craig Pace The Sun is out, it is warm, and the changeable, carefree
By Craig Pace
The Sun is out, it is warm, and the changeable, carefree time of Gemimi
has arrived once again. One particular note of variety that will keep us
flexible this June, is a set of eclipses. The Lunar eclipse will be on
Sunday the 14th at 24 degrees of Sagittarius, while the Solar counterpart
will be Tuesday the 30th at 9 degrees of Cancer. If you would like to watch
them, the peak shadowing of the Moon will be 9:50 pm PDT and the Sun's
dissapearing act will be most prominant at 5:18 am PDT of their respective
days. Their interpretations will, of course have a lot to do with each
person's particular house and planetary placements, but as always, some
things can be generalized.
These eclipses will probably have at least some identifyable
interpretation for everyone. However, this time the Moon's eclipse will be
the the most directly relevant to Sagittarians, Geminis, Virgoans and
Pisceans. Look for challenging and decisive times revolving around home and
family issues having to do with travel, philosophy/metaphysics, legal
affairs, or college. The Solar eclipse will probably be a little less
unruly. Those most likely to have events at this time will be Cancerians,
Librans, Capricornians, and Arians. Interpretations will be more direct in
this month's specifics, but generally events at the time of the Sun's
eclipse will include; the beginning of a family project or cycle, a
decision having to do with something that began two weeks ago at the Lunar
eclipse, or the creative resolution of a dissagreement.
This is going to be an exciting month because there are lots of other
event indicators happening in our solar system also. To start with, for
practically all of June, Venus is running conjunct to the Sun. From June 1
through about the 27th, gals should expect their guys to want to keep them
on the go. Even still ladies, there will be several opportunities for your
girl's night(s) out. Also ('lest we forget) financial indications continue
to be strong all through June especially for Aquarians, Librans, Geminis,
Virgoans, Pisceans and Sagittarians.
Mars is still in Aries until about mid-month, so there is still time to
get that new idea off the drawing board and into action. By June 15
however, lethargy may weight your pioneering spirit down as Mars enters
Taurus. Mars is not in its most natural way in Taurus, apparently the scene
of Ferdinand complacently laying in a field chewing his cud and smelling
flowers all day just doesn't jibe with Mars's fiery zest and zeal.
Reguardless, because of other factors, things will not slow down too much
after mid-month. Mars in Taurus can be real outdoorsy, especially men will
want to be working on something they can appreciate. This marks a good time
for gardening and going fishing.
Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, all indicating major life issues,
have gone retrograge. Scenarios they describe will be a little more low
key, at least until this fall when they turn direct again. Many of us are
involved in transformations, internal and external revolutions, and
profound self discovery and actualization right now, so it isn't that we
don't want to do these things, but since they are so heavy, a short respite
is welcome. After we've become more comfortable with recent gains we have
made, and had a moment to look around and see where we are, we will be back
to the forward thrust this fall. Some of us, in backing off now, may
discover some important thing(s) that had been overlooked.
The wake-up call for earth sign people who are in the prime time I spoke
of last month are; Virgoans born between August 29th through September the
2nd, Taureans from April 25th through the 30th, and Capricornians born from
December 27th through the 31st. If you are an earth sign person or have a
lot of earth in your chart, but do not fall between these dates, don't feel
left out in the cold. This may not be your most fortuitous time, but all
this summer will be good for you. As we go along from month to month, I'll
point out who will be at the best advantage, at the appropriate times.
If you are Libra born from the 8th to the 14th of October, or Gemini born
between the 5th and the 11th of June, or Aquarius born between the 4th and
10th of February, expect to have some especially productive days around the
8th and 9th this month. This aspect is not limited to, but is especially
good for financial matters.
For Cancerians born July 5th through the 12th, around the 18th and 19th
of June, you have entered a time when social and/or relationship issues
have become quite complex. Near the 18th someone will be either lying to
you or trying to hide behind a smoke screen. Talking sincerely and
straight-forwardly to that person may not bring positive results. By the
20th you may be in a position if force his/her hand, but up-front, honesty
is not intended by them. As an alternate solution, you may have to find
someone else to give you accurate information. Expect finalization of
issues by the Solar eclipse on the 30th.
Sagittarians born from December 13th through the 19th, the Lunar eclipse
on the 14th of June is going to conjunct your natal Sun. You can be sure
there will be an event on this one. Communication and sensitivity will be
keys to success for you. Someone you love needs you to hear and understand
him/her. If you just react, you will have overlooked something important.
It will then become a loss that you will feel badly about later.
Arians born from the 10th through the 17 of April and Leoans born between
the 13th and the 28th of August, you may or may not have a clearly
discernable event from the eclipse on the 14th. You will however, have at
least a generally positive time. The picture will have to do with travel to
visit family (or distant family members comming to see you). Not everything
will necessarily be happy, as there may be some disheartening family news.
If you are Gemimi born from the 12th to the 19th of June (happy
birthday), the eclipse time marks for you a reprise from what had been the
financial doldurms. It doesn't look like you are going to win the lottery,
but things are definately on the upswing.
For Pisceans, if you are having a happy, prosperous, interesting and
rewarding life right now, it is not from what can be interpreted by looking
at transit aspects to your natal Sun. (Which is all that can be seen
without actually looking at your chart.) I keep waiting for some positive
news for you, and ... Well, I'm still waiting. If you were born between the
24th of February and the 1st of March, Jupiter is squareing your natal Sun
from Virgo. This marks a time when your long range planning will be a
little out of focus, you are inclined to overreact and gain weight.
Everything seems to be out of whack and needing improvement or repair. As
if that weren't enough, you are having to put in a lot of long hours, you
are aware that you are working too hard, but it seems necessary. If you
were born March the 8th through the 14th, the news is a little better, and
will be better still next month. For now however, it is just a
generalization that you are feeling quite able to tackle the challenges in
front of you. You are of a mind to pull something apart and put it back
together in an altogether different way. But here again, it will probably
be July before you do it.
If you are Capricorn born December 28 through January 15, the Solar
eclipse at the end of the month will mark an event time for you. Since
Uranous and Neptune are still conjuncting your natal Sun, (and will
continue to for another two years) life still remains full of surprises and
complexity. This time look for fun and excitement, travel, and the
unexpected. This will be a light, fun time that will provide you with a
much needed break from long-term, ongoing challenges at work.
