June Femastrology 2020
by Astrologer and Psychic, Victoria Bearden
Everything is about to change, again. And don’t assume I mean this in a bad way! 2020 is obviously a year like no other, but that also means things can change for the better in ways we can’t imagine at the moment. June is full of turn-arounds, which will shake things up and open up doorways to new solutions. But things are also coming to a head. With 2 eclipses (in a cycle of 3), a Solstice, and Mercury Retrograde on tap, things are reaching a tipping point which could lead to a much different and potentially better future. Sure, there will be some drama. So, keep yourself grounded and focus on creating with your positive thoughts and actions.
Critical Mass: The time period we are entering is reminiscent of Hexagram 28 in the I Ching: Tua Kuo, or Critical Mass. Things have reached a level of maximum saturation, therefore an adjustment is both necessary and inevitable. Before you let this symbolism take your mind in the direction of a nuclear explosions, consider this more like a situation that has finally reached a point where success is possible. Things need to change. And indeed, they must change. Tension pushes us beyond that which is known and fosters new creativity. Collectively, and individually, we have a chance to push beyond that which is limiting us. Opposites collide, and things are then elevated to a new, and more sustainable level. The challenge is to stand tall, in the face of crisis, and allow the New Vision to take form. There is reason for caution, but also for optimism, as an enormous creativity is on the verge of being born.
Astrology and Covid-19: We astrologers and metaphysicians have been holding our breath for a few years, wondering just how big the 2020 changes could be. Well, I guess now we know. But there is a story that is still unfolding, as we find our pathway into a new reality. There is still a lot of change rolling out this year, and I am sure part of it will involve some major breakthroughs regarding the pandemic. As rough as the road ahead might look, there are turning points this year that will open the doorways to progress, and some of them will open this June. Just remember, we are making up the future as we go along. Together, we can create the kind of future we want to live in. Keep putting your energy into goodness.
Mercury Retrograde, June 17, 2020, 8:18 pm PDT, 14° Cancer: Yep, we have one coming right up! Mercury, the planet of communication, will go retrograde on June 17, 2020, in watery and emotional Cancer. Mercury retrograde always has its challenges, as the Murphy’s Law effect tends to be off the charts. But since it happens 3 to 4 times a year, why fight it? Join it! This means slowing down and not pushing the river. It is not the best time to start new projects, unless you have to. Instead, tie up your loose ends and get your current affairs fixed up. Be patient and tune in to what you need to attend to in your immediate reality, rather than stressing about things that might be blocked or delayed temporarily.
The Mercury Retrograde Playlist:
1. Mercury Retrograde Shadow #1 starts on June 2, 2020: This is when things start slipping sideways. Get the big things off your “to do” ASAP.
2. Mercury Retrograde Storm # 1 starts on June 14, 2020 thru June 22, 2020: This is when you know 100% for sure that things are weird. Find your center, and maintain.
3. Mercury turn Retrograde on June 17, 2020 at 8:18 pm PDT. This is the day when it happens. Keep your wits about you. It can be stressful.
4. Mercury Retrograde Storm # 2 starts July 9, 2020 thru July 19, 2020. This is the second “spin zone,” with Mercury turning direct right in the middle of it. This can be chaotic as the energy shifts.
5. Mercury turns Direct on July 12, 2020 at 1:26 am PDT: Things start to turn around. Give it a few days.
There’s a Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse at 15° Sagittarius on June 5, 2020, at 12:12 pm PDT. With the Sun in Air Sign Gemini opposite the Full Moon in Sagittarius, the emphasis will be on communication. Gemini can serve as the messenger for the higher ideals of Sagittarius in our best-case scenario. But eclipses tend to bring things to a head, so we can expect some heated exchanges over ideological differences. Donald Trump is a Gemini, born on June 14. So is China’s leader, Xi Jinping. Both men have birthdays that will be under the influence of this eclipse, so we can expect some tense developments. Let’s hope for some breakthroughs. In our personal lives, we can use the energy of the Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse to affirm positive communication and justice. Ask your Higher Self, your guides, and your angels to inspire your ability to speak, write, and act with truth and compassion. Of course, if your birthday falls near this date, you will have a big year ahead of you.
Summer Solstice falls on June 20, 2020 at 11:41 pm PDT. Please adjust this for your time zone. Of course, this is Winter Solstice for my friends in the Southern Hemisphere. Summer begins, and the Sun goes into the Sign of Cancer, bringing our emotional reality into strong focus, including food, safety, and family. There also just so happens to be a New Moon/Solar Eclipse. Get ready for a major change of vibrational energy. This is the perfect day to do anything and everything spiritual. Join in with the spirit of people all over the world who will be celebrating. This could represent a change for the better, albeit a time of great intensity.
There’s a New Moon/Solar Eclipse at 00° Cancer on June 20, 2020 at 11:41 pm PDT. As I mentioned before, adjust for your time zone. Another major turning point arrives with this portentous Solar Eclipse. New Moons are a time when the cosmic “reset” button can be pushed. And we could all certainly use a new start in some area of our lives. Let’s pool our collective energy to create a new pathway towards positive change. Planets are just planets, my friends. It all depends on what we do with the energy. Important and fateful events will take place around the time of this eclipse, both personally, and globally. The Cancer vibration has to do with love, caring, nurturing, and responsibility. Think of a parent caring for a child, or an elder. The “flip-side” of Cancer energy is tribalism and clannishness, which isn’t helping anyone right now. Stand up for the positive energy of Cancer and show your love.
The 3rd Eclipse in the Cycle occurs on July 4, 2020, at 9:44 pm PDT. This is a Full Moon in Capricorn. I’m mentioning this in my June article because it’s part of a series of 3. This one will be an extremely big deal, particularly for the United States, as it falls on our Independence Day. I’ll write more extensively about this in my next article
Opportunity Days: June 3, 4, 5, 9, 13, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22 and 30
