Happy Birthday, Gemini friends!! This month brings a massive amount of energy for you to use however you want! With the Sun lighting up your 1st house, and in your own sign, the awesome possibilities burn bright. This is a time for rebirth and you can maximize your new chapters by taking the time to go within and figure out what you really want. Birthday wishes are real and you get 10 of them! Write them down, say them out loud, and most importantly, FEEL them as if they have already come true. You can phrase them something like this: I am so grateful that my desire for …… has been fulfilled in a magical way! This method employs the energy of desire that is true to the transit and focuses on the fulfillment, not the lack of, which is the absolute key to manifestation. You can see more about this in my video, Making Wishes Come True Using Astrological Power Periods.
The 1st house that is highlighted for you now is all about what you put out into the world/how the world sees you. Are you doing things that match how you want to be received? If not, how can you change aspects of your life where there is a disconnect to create coherence between what you want to be seen as and how you are showing up.
Often the Sun’s movement through this house brings attention to you. It could throw you into the limelight bringing in recognition and/or an increase in awareness of you and your work or other projects.
This house also rules your physical body so getting into or back into a daily physical routine is imperative. Balancing mental activity with physical movement is an important way to open up to inspiration and keep yourself healthy and mentally and emotionally clear.
At the same time as daily movement (walking, yoga, tai chi, etc.) is helpful for focus and reaching goals. Complementary stillness of mind and body through meditation is helps to use your actions most efficiently.
Even something simple like 20 minutes of physical exercise and 5-10 minutes of daily meditation can do a world of wondrous good 🙂
If you have physical ailments, the Sun’s placement in the 1st house could bring new insights. Feelings not felt, expressed with spiritual accountability, and cleared, turn into physical pain in your body. Finding the balance between getting things out that you are feeling, without talking too much about the same thing over and over or participating in avoidance behaviors is your mission 🙂 Symptoms from the past may resurface for further attention.
Having a daily way to cleanse your emotional field from things you tend to try to ‘work away’ is critical for your happiness and health. I love Marriage of Spirit by Leslie Temple Thurston exercises in Section 2 of the book for this (see below).
I also really love barefoot walking (which is also amazing for detoxifying) or holding your third eye and hands up on a tree (in colder weather that isn’t conducive to being barefoot) to help clear your field and balance your energy field. You will be surprised at the wonders this simple practice could bring when done consistently. The Earth frequency is very balancing to the human energy field and has been mitigated in more modern times because of the plastic and rubber shoe bottoms which block the energy from permeating the energy field in deeper ways.
Getting back to focusing on your breath will be another big piece for your best, happiest, and healthiest life 🙂
June brings a “Quadruple Boom” with 4 major factors making this one of the most astrologically busy months of the whole year of 2021.
~ Mercury Retrograde in native sign of Gemini
~ Solar Eclipse in Gemini
~ Jupiter Retrograde
~ 2nd of 3 connections of mega-powerful outer planets through a Saturn/Uranus Square
In June through around July 7, we descend into Mercury retrograde energies which bring us more inward and backward. Things that seemed certain like plans and agreements, are more likely to get called into question as the month progresses. Things planned could still work out, but usually tests or uncertainty will come first. Adopting an attitude of flexibility and commitment to going along for the ride, can make for some surprisingly great experience or fun splashing in the puddles of rain that may fall on your planned parade.
June continues our time in the heat of eclipse season, which is known for radical changes, dramatic endings, and brilliant new beginnings. Eclipses in the Sagittarius/Gemini polarity, as we have in May with a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius at 5°, and this month, June 10 a Solar Eclipse at 19° of Gemini, tend to activate travel, move along publishing projects, bring focus to transportation and communication (and their devices or modes), and highlight topics of teaching and learning methods and plans of education. I will give you more details about the changes to expect for each sign in my Youtube videos and Astro Kisses with Annie Botticelli podcasts for May and June 2021. The effects of the May eclipse will still be potent in June, as well.
The planet of benevolence, luck and optimism moves backwards for 4 months starting in June, changing perspectives and bringing all things ruled by Jupiter into question or more in the backdrop to work with. Jupiter retrograde helps us to fine-tune and streamline our efforts showing us how to work less and have those efforts reach further. This transit could test optimism but through this process, shoring up unavoidable realistic details for visionary projects and other big life dreams.
Saturn and Uranus have been bringing major weather, earth, political, and other events since early in 2021. These themes remain in effect for all of 2021 with hotspots occurring during each of the 3 exact connections, the second of which is this month. See my video on the topic for more details.
