The Sun whirls through your 4th house this month bringing focus on home, real estate, and home-based ventures.
The desire to spruce up or organize home may be strong at this time. Do note that this energy is great to pull through small and/or necessary projects but for big projects that will take place over time, momentum may start to wane as the month goes on and any timeline intended for completion will likely be stretched longer than expected. Contractors and other workers may be harder to get a hold of and keep to their commitments and surprises that make the project take longer and/or cost more money are more likely.
This is a fantastic month for cozying up at home. Deep cleaning, clearing clutter, and reorganizing and advancing on any minor or major home repair or other home-related projects are all great through this month.
A fun project at this time is to do some Feng Shui treatments to your home.
Since the Sun lighting up your 4th house also means your family sector is lit up, if you are traveling this month, it will likely be to visit family or to a place that was or feels like ‘home’ or you may have family come visit you.
Family fun could enter center stage. Equally as likely could be family drama. Tread lightly on trigger topics with family and feel into doing work to dissolve your own triggers.
The 4th house is also the sector of childhood psychology, so things that happened as a child that are affecting your current situation (like patterns in relationship or elsewhere, that recreate circumstances that made you feel the same way you did when you were a child). The Sun in this position can light up things that are right and can also make more clear things that need improvement. If important actions have to be made working on the inner planes, there is much support at this time. If you feel ready to stop the patterns that have been holding you back, you can find great resources and make great headway now. Inner work is awesome at any time this month and this trend will be in effect for the rest of the year.
If you have real estate investments or are wanting to sell or buy a home, this month will likely bring much activity in this sector. The whole month, especially the first half, can still carry good energy for contractual commitments, signing paperwork, and firm plans, but remember that upcoming Mars retrograde can slow down ambitions and projects.
Mars will be retrograde from June 26, 2018 ~ August 27, 2018. The pre-transit shadow period starts May 11 and the post-retrograde shadow transit runs through October 10, 2018. To understand Mars retrograde energies better as you move through the long influence of this transit, check out my video on the topic. Also, here is a blog version of my Mars Retrograde Do’s & Donts.
Follow your gut if it seems something is off or there is more not being told but in general the this time can be an amazing time to commit to sales or purchases of real estate. Great deals could be found but there is a caution for investors to not buy too high or spread themselves too thin at this time as the momentum of the project will likely shift.
When I had a real estate business for 10 years where I bought, refurbished, sold or rented out homes, I would strike up conversations with neighbors outside in the neighborhood and ask them about the house and the neighborhood. Neighbors tend to love to talk about the area and you can find many an important piece of info highly relevant to the purchase, even things that the owner may not be forthcoming with like issues to major systems of the house that the neighbors knew about. Asking people in the area directly, “What do you love about this neighborhood” and “What do you wish was different” can clue you in to the stories of the area. Even things like airplane traffic patterns that may cross over the house that may not have been apparent on your visits to the house could turn out to be something a neighbor informs you about. Asking questions like this know can help to prevent future trouble for you.
To see an extensive list of things I love for now through Mid-December 2018 when the personal planet retrogrades dominate see my blog, Maximizing Personal Planet Retrogrades.
One important note about this month is that the deepening Mars retrograde energies do not well support picking a fight or waging a war in any way. Many fights/legal instigations, etc. instigated now do not often have as much support for the initiator. If something like this has to be done, I like June 1st and 2nd the best for the whole month and even for many months to come. There are always exceptions to this tendency so follow your flow/intuition in these situations.
June 1st (and 2nd) are my favorite days in the whole month (and for a while) for taking important actions, especially that involve spending money (or anything else involving money/making important purchases or commitments, etc.), love/romance/relationships, beauty/appearance, and most other things.
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Aries Horoscope is more relevant for you.
