ASTROLOGICAL FORECAST FOR

             June 2020

June is a much brighter energy astrologically as a full Moon lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on June 5th at 15 degrees conjuncts the U.S.A rising sign at 12 degrees (3:12PM EDT).

If you have Sun, Moon, rising or other planets in Sagittarius, you want to increase your knowledge by going back to classes online. Sagittarius rules higher education and many Sagittarians have college degrees.

If they do not, they are always wanting to digest knowledge in their own chosen area of interest.

The full Moon lunar eclipse chart has a Gemini signature. Gemini is the opposite of Sagittarius. Gemini energy started to take off around May 20th and left behind a six-week sluggish energy ruled by Pisces, Taurus, and Scorpio from the middle of March till the end of April.

As the Moon is waxing towards this full Moon lunar eclipse, we have massive protesting going on as a police officer kills ANOTHER black man out in the open daylight. I think the Jupiter retrograde, which will only be 1 and a half degrees away from Pluto on the full Moon Lunar eclipse day of June 5th, is creating large (Jupiter) groups of people to transform (Pluto) the criminal justice system.

This could end up on the White House lawn IF it is not addressed by President Trump.

The full Moon in Sagittarius focuses on ethical laws as Sagittarius rules the 9th house of higher laws created by the Supreme Court. The 3 T-squares points to an intense confrontation with Jupiter only aspect is an approaching conjunction with Pluto by the end of June. Unaspected Jupiter is not good for controlling this situation. 


Pluto represents issues that have been SLOWLY building over time that remained hidden from view but eventually errupt like a violent volcano when triggered by karma that has been ignored. This is what we are seeing with the violence against law enforecment for the mistreatment and murder of black men in all parts of America. 

Let us see what happens by June 5th as eclipses, especially full Moon lunar eclipses, involves lots of emotions and lots of energy from the collective voice as Sagittarius is known to say whatever they feel.

This new energy of Sagittarius is wonderful for getting out and going to social events as we continue to practice social distancing, hopefully, and get out in the warmer temperatures. Sunshine can do wonders for those feeling depressed and add some needed vitamin D therapy.

This full Moon lunar eclipse starts America off with better health as the rising sign rules the physical body and U.S.A chart has Sagittarius rising at 12 degrees. Lunar eclipses set up a new 6-month energy and the eclipses create a stronger gravitational pull on the Earth.

The full Moon chart has 3 T-squares with a Mars and Neptune in Pisces conjunction at the center of these squares. All in mutable signs which create flexibility. Flexibility along with a slow approach is the motto till the new Moon solar eclipse kicks in on June 21st.

Sagittarius, Gemini, and Pisces are experiencing a need to clarify their goals this month. They may feel obstacles are in their way over the next six months and want to practice flexibility as they navigate through their daily lives. Seek out friends and family members born under the sign of Virgo to help you create a practical plan as Virgo fills in the missing leg of the T-square’s.

Sagittarius, however, brings good fortune to all the retrograde planets currently in motion. We have Pluto, Jupiter, Saturn, and Venus all retrograde in this full Moon chart.


Go inside and listen to that small still voice that can be overshadowed by all the media noise and information overload.

We are being forced to turn within regardless of what Zodiac signs influence your profile. This is a great time to relax and meditate. Just rest more. For whatever reasons, mother nature is asking us to rest and take it easy.


Move slowly through your daily life. Rushing around gets you more in trouble or having a temper tantrum which could happen to the mutable signs mentioned when they are stressed.

Mercury turns retrograde on June 18th at 14 degrees of Cancer. Now we add Mercury to all the retrograde planets mentioned earlier in this article. The sign of Cancer is feeling like they are stuck in the ocean waters. The beach just may be their only salvation to get their mind and heart off family worries and if they have children, take them to the beach and just have some fun with them.

The sign of Cancer is about family, mother, patriotism, cook outs, restaurant, and hotel businesses, traveling by boat and feeling sensitive to life’s up’s and downs.

If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Cancer, you want to get plenty of rest but getting out in the Sun and feeding your mind, body and soul with solar rays can get you out of a depressive state and carry you through the Mercury retrograde period which ends on July 12th, 2020. It will not leave its shadow till July 26th, however.

As the Sun moves into the sign of Cancer on June 20th, we start the summer solstice at 5:44PM EDT. If that is not enough of the crab’s energy taking over, we have a new Moon solar eclipse in the sign of Cancer at 0 degrees on June 21st (2:41AM EDT). Happy Birthday to the sign of Cancer.

This is a new beginning for family and Father’s Day is on the 21st. Happy Father’s Day.

America is born under the sign of Cancer. This marks a new beginning of hope and encouragement for the families of America. This new Moon solar eclipse conjuncts U.S.A ‘s natal Venus in the 7th house which is trine to the Moon in Aquarius.

This is particularly good for improved teamwork and the voices of Americans being heard. The tensions that started off the month on June 5th find more balance with this new Moon.

If you have planets in Cancer, you are starting a new life with this new Moon solar eclipse. New ways of integrating family life with work life. Family is everything and being proud of your country and what it stands for are 2 major themes over the next 6 months.

Getting to emotional and clinging onto the past can be the downfall of those influenced by the sign of Cancer in their personal charts. During the next 6 months, you can balance your emotional nature with your desires in life. You can use your nurturing abilities to benefit in any service-oriented way such as feeding others.

Cancer is the sign of feeding the world and feeling the needs of others when they are in tough situations. We should see an improvement in the way the government is handling the restaurant, hotel, and travel industry. With 40% of restaurants closing their doors forever, this is not good for many families in America and it is not good when its only 5 months away from a Presidential election year.

With Neptune going retrograde on June 23rd, we now have Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and Neptune in retrograde motion. This is an internal pressure cooker. Where is the release?

Look to this time for Americans to voice the lessons they are learning about how their medical organizations and economic organizations have not been on the same page to please the American people.

Retrogrades are about research and as of today, May 25th when I am writing this article, medical laboratories are scrambling for that magic vaccine to profit on this whole virus pandemic. Since the full and new Moon eclipse energies are active for 6 months, look for a vaccine to be ready by the end of this year.

This astrological eclipse time agrees with the target dates mentioned by President Trump who is a Gemini with Moon in Sagittarius. President Trump will turn 74 years old on June 17th.

And remember, holistic healthcare strengthens the immune system. There are many therapies under the umbrella of holistic healthcare such as Yoga, deep meditation to release stress, high quality vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements, message therapy just to name a few to strengthen the immune system.

Whatever we put our attention on grows. Our spirituality is a huge focus now that the world is unplugging from the money game. Some of the positive outcomes are less air pollution, fewer car accidents, people helping each other more than ever and more quiet time for spiritual practices.

Retrograde planets help us to stop and think things over. When Venus turn’s direct on June 25th, we start to climb out of the deep thinking and express new ideas (Gemini) about the medical and economic world that we live in.

For now, the signs of Sagittarius, Cancer, Pisces, and Gemini are taking us forward from our inward journey. We may feel stuck still in the month of June, but the weather is nice and new ideas will surface over the next 6 months on exactly what direction America wants to take.

How about the 8 major families that started the international banking system forgive all debts until the virus is under control? Keep business and families alive. Or, maybe if Americans have had enough, they may start a whole new way of doing business in the future based on small family groups taking care of each other.

Pluto, Jupiter, and Saturn all in Capricorn have been showing us that big business and big government can not be dependable in pandemic situations. Many people still have not received unemployment or stimulus. Testing is still struggling along.

Many questions will continue through the summer months until planets turn direct again. Patience is a virtue. Enjoy this time with family and friends as we all work together to find answers within ourselves, we cannot find in our institutions.
