Communications, meetings and events early June will put the wind beneath your wings - this early phase in June really will be an excellent opportunity to set sail on a positive course, so take note of key discussions, as these could be pivotal to your success. 

The Gemini New Moon on June 5 will provide the opportunity to reset your compass and to double check that you’re on the right path. The New Moon will be part of a ‘Grand Cross’ aspect* that is associated with tension and challenges in astrological terms, and yet with a dedicated approach, a Grand Cross can bring about key developments that really do spell a brighter way ahead.

This Grand Cross can signify a turning point, and will be particularly powerful for Virgos, Geminis, Sagittarians and Pisces. Figuring out how to move forward and ensuring you have all the details you need will spell success. Avoidance of nostalgia, melancholy and wistful thinking will help you to feel you’re able to make valid and empowering decisions.

Meanwhile, a beautiful ‘Grand trine’**, in Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus will provide stability for you if you tend to be comfortable with change, but may ostensibly provoke stress or tension in those people less happy to go ahead right now with considerable change in your life.

It really is a case of going into a transformative phase in life with the willingness to learn from the past while embracing the future, and keeping your feet firmly in the present. Quite a life skill; and one you can practice this month!

The Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 20th will highlight the tension around those who wish to move forward but have legitimate reason to avoid rocking the boat right now. For others, though, an agreement or news this month will highlight exactly why you will be catapulted into a fresh environment, or a relationship event; or you will at least gain deeper understanding of your circumstances then.

When decisions present themselves in June, ensure you look at events in the long-term; a Full Moon in Sagittarius will stimulate an adventurous, outgoing attitude, but care must be taken that you’re realistic in your choices now. As ever, keep your feet on the ground and reach for the stars!
