Polaris and Comet Lovejoy
Image Credit & Copyright: Rogelio Bernal Andreo
Explanation: One of these two bright sky objects is moving. On the right is the famous star Polaris. Although only the 45th brightest star in the sky, Polaris is famous for appearing stationary. Once you find it, it will always appear in the same direction — all night and all day — for the rest of your life. This is because the northern spin pole of the Earth — called the North Celestial Pole — points near Polaris. On the left, about ten million times closer, is Comet Lovejoy, which noticeably changes its sky position by the hour. The featured image was taken last week. Officially designated C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy), this disintegrating snowball is on a visit from the outer Solar System and will only appear near the North Star for a few more weeks. That should be long enough, however, for northerners with binoculars or a small telescope to see the greenish coma of this fleeting newcomer, perhaps with the help of a good star map.
Planet Tracker for June 2nd: Moon in Sagittarius, June 1 thru 3
Moon in Sagittarius
Jun 1, 2015 to Jun 3, 2015
Think of a horse running free. An archer’s eye trained on a distant target. A monk’s heart and mind expanding to the heavens. The Moon encourages you to reach beyond a limit today. Pick one thing (however small) that you can do in the next hour to renew your sense of adventure and love for the world. The energy of Sagittarius is expansive, free, optimistic, generous, philosophical and visionary. Quick-jot down five things you’re grateful for. Next, write down your current salary and add a couple zeros. And that fabulous thing you haven’t accomplished yet? See yourself having done it. In this expansive frame of mind, hug a know-it-all. Forgive anyone who sticks their foot in their mouth. But avoid the mall, you’ll overspend. In body matters, take a loofa to your cellulite thighs. If you go to the gym this Moontime, be cautious of upper leg strain.

Your Charm for June 2nd is The Food Charm
Your Charm for Today
Your health vibration is very high! You are energetic and feel you can accomplish anything. This aspect reflects positive vibrations due to diet. This will continue for a few weeks.
The Lamas of Tibet encourage all sorts of magic. Their religion is a form of Buddism, introduced into Tibet about 750 A.D. It is corrupted with the worship of demons, and many curious magical beliefs. The Food Charm is used to stamp the form of their god Buddha on their food for protection against the powers of evil, and for happiness, both of the physical and spiritual body. The device shows the god Buddha probably surrounded with the emblematic circle of rice, which in Tibet means the Wheel of Life, or misfortunes roll off, and good fortune rolls on.

Your Ancient Symbol Card for June 2nd is Balance
Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today
Balance denotes the benefits of keeping the use of your energies justifiably proportioned between your pursuits. The symbol Yin and Yang is used to represent the balance. Yin and Yang is possibly the most elegant and sometimes elusive definition of Balance there is. While Balance is rarely if ever perfect, being far out of Balance means that while one part of you may be thriving tremendously, another part of your life may be wilting.
As a daily card, Balance indicates a need to find and maintain a level physical and spiritual state. It suggest you may be concentrating your energy on one or a few things so much that you are neglecting other important aspects of your life. While this is often necessary to make immediate gains it can lead to missing out on the diverse richness of life in the long term.
Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for June 2nd is The Emperor
Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today
The Emperor is blessed with the skills to successfully lead others. He can turn chaos into order and provide structure to that which is unbound. He is quick of mind and confident in his power and right to rule, and does so in a just manner. Although stern by nature, he truly is the ultimate father figure. He will provide as needed, teach those with unanswered questions, protect the vulnerable, set and maintain boundaries. His perfect world runs on schedule and is free of any disturbances. What the Emperor must be wary of is setting boundaries and rules where none are needed. If he isn’t careful not to over use his powers he may well become a tyrant.

The World suggests you have found or will find your place in our Universe—that place where all is as it should be

Get A Jump On Tomorrow….
Your Horoscopes for Wednesday, June 3rd
While your focus on daily affairs may be keeping you bound to a desk or close to home these days, dear Aries, yesterday’s Full Moon has brought out a need for more adventure, a wider reach, or something non-routine. You could be coming out with a project, ready to announce something important to you, or promoting a recent project. Today, your personal appeal is strong. Avoid giving in to sudden impulses and desires, but do treat yourself to some form of light indulgence or extravagance – something that you won’t later regret. The Moon enters your career and goals sector tonight, where it will stay through to the end of Friday, and this can stimulate your ambitions.
You might be in the position to play detective today, dear Taurus, or it’s about your disposition, as you tend to be investigating, researching, and analyzing. It’s a good time for probing and looking at old problems in a new light, but do watch for false information or a tendency to latch on to “facts” that support wishful or even fearful thinking, with Neptune clouding our vision. Today, you might suddenly become obsessed with something or someone, but this is only a mask for a deeper issue. Avoid overly impulsive moves right now, but do treat yourself with a small indulgence. People are drawn to you today – you have a little extra oomph.
Today is a good time for giving your close relationships or significant people in your life their due attention, dear Gemini. Resolutions are likely now. It’s a time for showing how fair you can be. You might go so far as to people-please today, and this is just fine if you are truly feeling good about it, but know your limits on this front. Avoid going overboard to the point that you feel overloaded or put upon. Overall, the day is strong for connecting and bonding with others. The Moon moves into your solar eighth house tonight, where it will stay through to the end of Friday, and this can bring on a more introspective disposition.
Health or work matters that have been brushed aside recently are in focus now, dear Cancer, and this is a good time to give them their due attention. There can be a good feeling that comes from being productive, useful, or helpful now, although the day’s energies may seem to favor emotions and pleasures over practical activities. It might be wise to allow more time for yourself to get things done. The Moon enters your partnership zone tonight, where it will stay through to the end of Friday. This brings out your need to be with others, but most of all, with a significant someone. One-on-one seems the most appealing and beneficial during this cycle.
You may have received a cosmic push to explore your creativity or to express yourself in special ways from yesterday’s Full Moon, dear Leo. Today, take the time to tune in to your heart’s desire, as it’s an important time for realizing your needs, even if they’ve been buried for quite some time. Watch, however, for desires that seem to come on too quickly, as they may only be masks for what you truly want. The Moon enters your work and service sector tonight, where it will stay through to the end of Friday. This can stimulate an emotional need to contribute and produce. Work and health can be in stronger focus.
There can be an indulgent, passive quality to the day, dear Virgo. You are amenable and in the mood to spoil someone you care about. Family matters tend to attract your attention and thrive for you right now. Past issues can emerge, and it’s mostly a pleasant trip down memory lane. There may be a move or reorganizing of the home in the works, and new ideas about improving your home life or domestic activities. Later today, you are moving out of a domestic or withdrawn frame of mind, and could be itching to do something creative or share your ideas and feelings with others.
Teaching, authoring, and communications in general can be especially rewarding now, dear Libra. The day is more settled than it was yesterday, although you may not be certain where to direct your energies. You might find it nice to talk something through, spend time with others, and learn assorted facts. Personal magnetism is good. Later today, the Moon moves into your home and family sector for a couple of days, and this brings out the desire to surround yourself with familiar people and to stick with what you know just for the time being. Attention to personal matters is most appropriate now.
There can be special interest in, and focus on, money, possessions, valuables, and comfort today, dear Scorpio. You might want to look into ways to increase your income through networking, expanding your audience, and connecting with people far and wide. You could be looking into the past for benefits, or reviewing the past, especially with finances and close relationships now. The desire for comfort is very strong today. Tonight, the Moon moves into your communications zone where it will stay for a couple of days, stimulating your curiosity and desire for movement, learning, and connecting.
This is a day for being closer to your heart, dear Sagittarius, with the Full Moon having just occurred in your own sign. Today, there continues to be a lot of attention and focus on you. and with emotions still in the forefront but a little more settled, it’s a good time to consider what you need to feel satisfied or fulfilled. Desires can feel pressing, and you are giving off good vibes. Sometimes the Moon in our own sign can lead us to act childish or spoiled – avoid this as much as possible. It’s very appropriate to focus on your needs, but allow things and people to come to you. The Moon leaves your sign tonight, and will spend a couple of days in your values sector, prompting a stronger need to take care of what you have and own.
This is an important time for helping others, dear Capricorn, or for volunteering and performing other types of service for some of you. Others may need to go within and spend more time alone and resting with the Full Moon having just occurred in your spirituality sector and the Moon continuing to highlight this part of your chart until tonight. As much as possibly, avoid entertaining guilt about what you haven’t done. Do what you know is right at the moment and resolve to do so more often going forward. Tonight, the Moon moves into your sign, where it will spend time for a couple of days. This is a time for more emotional clarity as well as urgency, as emotional needs can feel pressing.
This can be a good time for reaching out to friends and people in your network, dear Aquarius. You may be especially aware of the need for their support, or simply the good feeling of camaraderie with others. You could be bringing something special to a group now, and deriving satisfaction from that. There may be surprises in your social life, but for some of you, there can be feelings of unrest if you are expecting more than you are getting from your friends. This is a day for being kind to yourself. The Moon enters your privacy zone tonight, where it will stay through to the end of Friday, and stirs the need for emotional renewal, rest, reflection, and healing.
There is a stronger focus on performance, career, responsibilities, and what others expect of you today, Pisces. Keep a safe distance emotionally if you need to draw conclusions or deal with important facts and figures. Otherwise, entertain your feelings about where you’re headed and why – you can learn a lot about yourself in the process. Avoid impulsive moves on the career front today, but do watch for interesting and seemingly coincidental events now. Tonight, the Moon moves into your solar eleventh house, where it will stay through to the end of Friday. This brings less emphasis on performance and more interest in socializing.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, June 2nd
Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, June 2nd
This morning, you may become aware of the need for adjustments, dear Aries. Concerns tend to be about your responsibilities and whether or not you are reaching for your goals, as you’ve been especially busy taking care of small problems and little things. If you’ve been spreading yourself too thin at the expense of your larger goals, you’ll feel the need to make changes on this front now. With a Full Moon occurring in your solar ninth house, you may be publishing or completing an important project now or in the coming weeks. For other Aries, you may have a strong urge to take off somewhere or to depart your usual routine or way of thinking in some way. This Full Moon can bring illumination to, or the culmination of, learning matters or projects. An idea that you’ve been working on might blossom now. Advertising or promotional efforts can be successful.
Early day tensions might revolve around money, a possible purchase, or a need to get away that seems difficult to pull off, dear Taurus. If you’re feeling indecisive, try putting out your feelers for information. Advice doesn’t have to be taken, but may very well get your own thinking processes working in reaction. A Full Moon occurs in your intimacy sector today, and tends to bring matters to fruition or illuminate matters. Finances or shared resources can be a topic now, but for others, it’s about an intimate relationship or personal matter. While there could be some drama with regards to money, it might be a time for settling debts or collecting on money owed. There can be new insight into a relationship or a psychological matter. Emotions are important now, but can cloud over logic, so feel them but wait for big decision making.
With Mars in your sign, recently you’ve been more assertive, courageous, and possibly hasty, dear Gemini. Today, with Mars in difficult aspect with Pluto, displaced anger might be driving some of your actions or reactions if you’re not aware of it. Try to examine immediate reactions, as they can be quite revealing of problem areas. A Full Moon today occurs in your opposite sign (Sagittarius). This can bring relationship matters to light, or could indicate an important epiphany or turning point. Something about you could be revealed. Sudden awareness of a pre-existing situation can figure strongly today, especially regarding a significant other in your life.
A relationship or a personal problem can be weighing heavily on your brain this morning, dear Cancer. A decision may not be necessary, so take the pressure off yourself. Perhaps the conundrum should simply be felt now and the problem solved at a later date. A Full Moon occurs today, and can bring a service-related, work, health, or private matter to light. Some of you could be dealing with deadlines, or a sudden reveal of flaws to a plan that need management. There could be a new development, fruition of a project, or turning point that you’re dealing with now and in the coming weeks. It’s a wake-up call, but you can handle this onward thrust, and be happy for it. Emotions run high right now, so take things in before making important decisions.
You might experience some tension early today, dear Leo, as your desire to unwind and relax may be challenged. Power games might occur in your work, or pressures to get things done can weigh heavily on you. If someone’s methods grate on your nerves, try to dismiss them. Stay centered and keep things simple for best results right now. The Full Moon today occurs in your celebratory, creative solar fifth house, and this brings emotions to the surface and illumination to a social or romantic matter. This can be a time of epiphanies, breakthroughs, turning points, and sudden awareness. Unrecognized feelings might be expressed now. A project might be completed or announced. This is a time for listening to your heart, but it’s also important to take things in before making critical decisions.
Fears of expressing yourself creatively or speaking out on a matter can prevent you from going forward with plans this morning, dear Virgo. However, even if insecurities or frustrations are holding you back, it’s best to present your more competent and professional side to the world, and perhaps wait for a better day for pushing forward with something entirely new. A Full moon occurs today, and can prompt a need to move around your priorities, particularly if you’ve been too heavily focused on your outside responsibilities or work. Home, family, or a personal matter can grab your attention now, and the need to bring your life back into balance becomes evident now. Areas of life that are stirred up now are in flux for good reason – to bring your attention to imbalances and to unrecognized emotions.
Concerns about matters on the home front can be undermining your confidence this morning, Libra, and the desire to flee and escape your responsibilities can be strong. Restlessness is the likely result. Take a deep breath and find a balance. Avoid dwelling on matters that you can’t change, and instead work on things that you can. A Full Moon occurs midday, and with any Full Moon, there can be illumination of a matter, epiphany, or culmination. This lunation occurs in your communications and immediate environment sector, and it can stimulate quite a bit of flux and activity. There could be things to do, deadlines to meet, a culmination of a project or study, or news of a travel or educational matter. While it’s important to take in what’s happening now, keep in mind that all may not be as it seems. Wait and see before making major moves.
Try not to read too much into others’ actions and words this morning, Scorpio. The tendency to dwell on past conversations and interactions with others that bothered you is strong with Mars in awkward aspect with Pluto. Avoid alienating people you care about, and be kind to yourself by attempting to let go of frustrations rather than dwell on them. A Full Moon occurs midday in your finance and values sector, and this can bring an important breakthrough, new information, or the fruition of a matter surrounding business or finances. This lunation falls along an axis that also has to do with talents and resources, as well as sexual and intimate relationships, so new feelings or discoveries may revolve around these things. Because what we see today may be a little overblown by emotions, it’s best to take things in, digest, and process before making big moves or decisions.
Angers and frustrations can be operating very close to the surface in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius, but can be difficult to express directly. Differences in opinions now may very well boil down to issues surrounding basic values. It will be important not to dwell on the negative because it’s not likely to get you to a better place. Find ways to loosen up and relax. A Full Moon midday tends to define the rest of it, and it’s in your sign. This can bring a lot of activity and attention your way, and sudden emotions or epiphanies to your life. A personal revelation can occur now, or if you’ve been focusing so much on others and their agendas, you can have a sudden need to attend to your own plans and needs or a burst of independence. Pay close attention to what emerges today – listen to your heart! Take things in rather than acting upon emotions just yet.
Insecurities or worries could be an issue in the first half of the day, dear Capricorn, or you could be feeling a little under the weather, as recent imbalances may begin to spill over and affect you in various ways, possibly indirect ones. Make it your aim to keep stress under control by identifying those things that have you feeling off your game and working on eliminating them. You can handle a lot, but you may overestimate what your system can take, and going easy on yourself is important – something you may easily forget to do. A Full Moon occurs midday in your privacy sector, and this is wonderfully timed, as you are reminded to get extra rest. It might bring a work or health matter to light, but it’s most likely to stimulate a sudden and important desire to heal, rest, replenish, and self-nurture. Buried feelings can come to light, including things that may have hurt you in the past but that you’ve brushed to the side, and of course, getting in touch with these things is the first step to healing. Take time for yourself and steps towards a stronger feeling of well-being.
The desire to express yourself uniquely and creatively is very strong these days, dear Aquarius, although you could be wrestling with something from the past or insecurities that undermine your “performance” today. As such, you may not be coming across as smoothly as you would like, just for the moment. It’s appropriate now to examine your fears, but not to dwell on them. The Full Moon midday favors being around people, socializing, and expressing feelings. A friendship or romantic matter may be illuminated now, and epiphanies are quite possible. There may be a sudden demand for your company, invitations can come in, a romantic revelation, or an announcement can be made by a friend or lover – even a child. A pleasant feeling of being needed and needing others can be experienced now.
Try to find a better balance between home and outside responsibilities, dear Pisces. Difficulties with friends or associates may be affecting your home life, and you don’t need the added stress. Resentments or unresolved problems can have a way of emerging in erratic ways early today. The Moon is Full midday, influencing your public sector. This can bring you into the spotlight, and increases your visibility in general. What you have and haven’t done may seem to be everybody’s business now, and whether you’re feeling comfortable with it or not, put on your best show! Paying closer attention to the rules is important now. It’s another reminder to better manage your time and attention, keeping your personal and professional or public lives separate and neither one left neglected or overdone.

a message from Sarah-Jane Grace
For more of Sarah-Jane’s insight, visit her website, Sarah-Jane Grace
Watching a tree change from season to season can invoke a plethora of different emotions from a sense of new life in the spring when leaves grow and buds form, to a quietening down after the leaves have fallen and the trees go into their wintry slumber. Animals, plants and trees move from season to season with an acceptance of the cycle of life: they adapt and they often find new ways of thriving even when they face adversity and hard times.
Human beings tend to create blocks in the natural flow by living in tree-less cities where an awareness of the natural cycles fades into the background. We are an adaptable species and find new ways of living and being as life goes on but there is a deeper sense of disconnection forging in the hearts and souls of so many as we break away from the natural cycles and flows of life. In this interconnected, 24/7, virtually driven world, there is a sense of constant stimulation and busy-ness with little time to notice the leaves on the trees changing or the majestic forests whispering in the moonlight. At the same time, human beings try to outsmart and outwit the natural cycles with technology and science, a great deal of which makes life a better experience but it often sits juxtaposed with the natural flow of things.
Living out of kilter with the rest of life feeds this deeper disconnection and it can be hard to feel like an integral part of the whole. Yet, we are. It’s easy to feel isolated from life and from the world in which we live when that world is concrete based, where life often feels more valid in a virtual world than the real world. People seek retreat in technology to distract themselves from life but distract themselves from themselves in the process. With so many souls retreating from the world there is a sense of a need for others to push in the other direction and reassert their connection to one another, earth and all who dwell on her. June looks set to be a month where this movement of ‘reconnection’ surges forwards inspiring many of us to stand up, be authentic and to reconnect fully to the universe. Although none of us can truly know what this will lead to, in a way, this doesn’t matter as it is the motivation to try that makes a difference.
The ripples of change are creating new patterns and shapes now, and there is a sense of a need to be more aware of these in order to become one with them. Life is changing whether we want it to or not: change is constant. It seems important to re-awaken fully over the days and weeks ahead as we begin to breathe more deeply into life and into ourselves once again. In a way there is no ‘do’ here, just a willingness to be authentic and to step fully into each and every moment. It is this willingness that creates a kind of osmosis effect which filters out and, like a leaf in the wind, is carried across time and space before it is breathed in again somewhere else; this is a constant force and it’s growing now as we all begin to reclaim a truer sense of balance within ourselves and with the true cycle and flow of life…
You would be forgiven for feeling as though your life has been on fast forward recently as you have barely had time to take a breath as there has been so much to do, lots of people to see as well as a plethora of places to be. Although you usually thrive under pressure, you are wilting slightly at the moment. As a result, it seems you have lost sight of the bigger picture of your life and many goals and dreams are gathering dust on the shelf, and many of your usual priorities have slipped by the wayside as you have focused on the business of keeping on keeping on, trying not to buckle under all of those things to do, people to see and places to go. Top this with a pile of ought’s, must’s, and should’s as well as a good few ought not’s, should not’s and must not’s, and it’s easy to see why you are struggling!
June brings you an opportunity to reset the balance and reconnect to your true priorities in life. Whilst you may love to be the glue that holds everything and everyone else together, perhaps the time has come for you to be your own glue for a while? Taking care of your own needs from eating well, looking after your body, using your time wisely and balancing your energy all matter. This isn’t to say that you should drop everything and run for the hills, but maybe it’s time now to stop trying to be superhuman and instead try to be you? Love yourself for all that you are and know you are a vibrant, compassionate and passionate soul…
The concept of breathing space looks set to continue to take centre stage in your life throughout June as you begin to find new ways to simplify your life. Although you are not one to deliberately over-complicate your life, it’s easy to get tied up in knots as you try to juggle all of your many responsibilities and duties, leaving you feeling somewhat bewildered in the spin of activity even though much, if not most, of it is not actually of your making. Of course, you are a giving soul and you love to help and support everyone around you. A result of such a choice (although it doesn’t always feel like a choice!) is an increasing sense of burden in your soul as you struggle to find the room to take a big, deep breath of air.
You often feel as though you are living in a breath-hold of epic proportions as you focus on keeping on keeping on, trying to do your best to keep all of those batons of responsibility up in the air. Yet slowly turning blue in the face really isn’t a good look for you and it certainly doesn’t seem to allow you the opportunity to thrive and blossom. Although you intuitively know it’s time to breathe, at some level you are still fighting it as you don’t want to feel as though you are letting anyone down by saying no or stepping back. You are not an insignificant piece of this puzzle: you matter! So, stop, breathe and allow your lungs to re-fill with life-affirming and life-giving sustenance as you simplify your life and smile…
There are times in life for everything: moments or fragments in time to experience the infinite spectrum of emotions and thoughts, and to make choices and decisions in the blink of an eye. Life is a continuous rollercoaster of change and there are times when it feels as though all of those moments crash in on themselves in one big life changing bang which is so monumental, it can take your breath away. Although, thankfully, such moments are rare, there is a sense that you have been building up to something of a ‘crescendo of moments’ recently as you have pushed on and pushed ahead with vim, vigour and steely determination but the cost of this has been a disconnection from your emotional and spiritual roots.
You are a vibrant, inspirational and intuitive soul, and these gifts help you to ride the waves of life with wisdom so don’t ignore them by trying to ignore change: welcome it and know that the more consciously you ride with the waves, the more of an opportunity of a lifetime the forthcoming crescendo will prove to be. In many ways, life is as you make it and although embracing a ‘crescendo of moments’ will likely cause powerful ripples in the pool of your soul, there is a sense of optimism and hope that this is an opportunity to seize as it looks set to transport you towards a stronger sense of acceptance, hope and contentment than you have ever experienced before. June looks set to be a pivotal and liberating month for you, so take a deep breath and enjoy the ride…
June is a special month, not least because it brings the summer solstice and the onset of ‘your time’ of the year. Yet this year it looks even more significant for you as there is a powerful sense of release in the air: a sense that you are preparing to consciously let go of the past, a willingness to stop chasing the future and a fuller awareness of where you are now. The release is connected to feeling your feet in the here and now rather than spending your time looking back at the path you’ve already walked and ahead at the path you hope to walk. Although both are important, neither are as significant as to where you are now as the present is the only truly defining moment anyone can ever have.
Of course, this is not a new concept to you, but understanding a concept and actually living it are not the same thing! You have a tendency to judge yourself on past choices and berate yourself for not being further ahead than where you are: you look to where you think you need to be instead of looking to where you are now, seeing a gap or a fault rather than feeling gratitude for all that you’ve already achieved. Being in the here and now doesn’t mean you should give up on dreams or goals! June looks set to be a month where opportunity flows freely in the here and now. Yesterday is behind you, tomorrow hasn’t happened yet; so take a deep breath and smile…
Breakthrough looks set to be a central theme in your life throughout June as you begin to shift your perspective towards your true priorities and goals in life. A time of breakthrough suggests a period of change and shift as you step from one chapter of your life to another, and you seem ready for this now. However, there is also a sense you are aware of a twist and a lurch in your solar plexus as you are not, as yet, clear as to what this change actually involves; you want it, need it and welcome it, but you are apprehensive all the same because you cannot see it, feel it or touch it. Yet, despite this uncertainty, there is a feeling of inevitability that change is coming anyway and your inner fighting spirit is preparing itself ‘just in case’ you need to resist the process.
However, take a breath and you will realise that the only fight is the one between you and, well, you, as this is your time to shine and your time to re-shape and re-define your life. Nothing in life is guaranteed or set in stone, and whilst this puts those butterflies in your solar plexus into a furious flutter, this is a good thing as it means you are not being complacent and you are also taking this important turning point in your life seriously. It’s easy to say ‘your life is in your hands’ as it can feel flippant, but feel the power in these words and trust that your life is in your hands. This period of breakthrough looks set to bring you an incredible opportunity to grab hold of life and to breathe deeply into each and every moment…
June looks set to be a time for regaining the central ground of your life when it comes to your dreams, your beliefs and your thoughts. Although you are quite a balanced individual, recently there has been a sense of inner divide as you have split yourself into many different directions trying to be everything to everyone. As a result, you have lost your sure-footed stance in the central landscape of your inner world as you have oscillated between being there, here and over there. Trying to please all of the people all of the time rarely works especially when you forget to include yourself in the equation. You can rush around until you’re blue in the face trying to ‘get life right’ by doing or saying the right thing or chasing perfectionism, but unless this drive comes from the core of your being, it is likely to lead you further off balance as it is likely being driven by ‘ought’s’ and guilt rather than by compassion or that incredible inner sense of knowing you have.
You frequently forget you are the wisest person you know and acknowledging such a thing isn’t an act of big-headedness but an acceptance of your own gifts. Being you is an amazing gift and the more you embrace your wisdom, the more you will realise there really is no need to rush around from here, to there and back to here again in an attempt to be everything to everyone. In fact, you will realise that being here is really the only place you can ever truly be, so by being here consciously and willingly, you can begin to reclaim the central ground within and find a new level of balance and harmony in all areas of your life…
As you continue to find peace with your true nature and wholeheartedly accept your natural state of being is one of an active mind and an expansive, ever-evolving soul, there is a sense you are beginning to find a deeper sense of inner knowing as you stop trying to be the person you think you ought to be and instead focus on being the person you truly are. Authenticity brings you the opportunity to step from the shadows in order to experience the rising sun over a new dawn in your life. Being you is an art, it may be an easy concept to grasp but understanding the concept and actually living, breathing and doing it is very different. Being you means allowing your vibrancy and creativity to shine. Being you means not trying to be the person you think you ought to be any longer and having the courage to be the person you really are.
Whilst you may carry a modicum of doubt within you connected to being unsure if you actually know who the real you is, when you take a deep breath, you know and it becomes clear. You have spent a long time on the side lines of life trying to get life ‘right’ and waiting for the right moment to let your inner light shine brightly. June looks set to bring you such a moment and inspire you to have the courage and self-belief to be you, only you and truly you. Part of being human involves game playing, acting and hiding behind facades; everyone does it to some extent. However, for you the days of smoke and mirrors are over as you take a deep breath and shine…
You know only too well that trying to blend in isn’t possible when your uniqueness stands out. Trying not to get noticed when your soul illuminates the world is something of a thankless task as the harder you try to blend in, the more you stand out! Being you isn’t the easiest role to have in life but you thrive on the uncertainty and you blossom in the vibrancy and uniqueness as you simply love being you. Yet, there is a sense that you often curse such a role as it ‘gets in the way’ and creates minor and not-so-minor irritations in your life as you want to be you but you also want to be the you that others want you to be, the you that you think you should be and the you that you believe you need to be.
With so many versions of ‘you’ floating around, it’s perhaps not surprising you can feel a tad overwhelmed and confused as to whom exactly you are and which ‘you’ is you! You are a complex soul and an easy answer to this conundrum would likely prove unsatisfactory to you as you thrive on riddles and questions within questions. A straightforward answer would likely feel boring as it would mean you would no longer be trying to find the real you, you would actually be the real you instead. It seems the chase of the quest is far more exciting than the reality! The journey/quest brings you opportunity, adventure and uncertainty; the destination seemingly doesn’t. You feel you need to get to your destination but, at the same time, you don’t really want to. So, why not make the destination the journey and find new ways of living, breathing and being you…
June looks set to be a month for continuing to lighten the load of your life as you begin to find new ways of living your life that feel both liberating and invigorating. There is one thing guaranteed to stoke the fires of your soul, even when the going feels tough, and that’s a tingle of adventure. You are a free spirit at heart and even though life often sees you sacrificing this in order to get on with the business of life, it’s hard for you to deny your true essence indefinitely as your free spirit finds ways to seep out and break free. In a way it takes far more effort to contain your free spirit and push ahead with life than it would to let your free spirit dance and find a new way of living and being. Of course, it’s easy to make such an observation but actually doing it may feel somewhat more challenging as it involves having complete faith in yourself and actually believing you have what it takes.
Although you say you know you have what it takes, wholeheartedly believing this takes courage as it means stepping beyond the safety net of your life and taking a leap into the vast unknown. It’s choosing to live your life fully, vibrantly and making the most of each and every moment. You long for your free spirit to soar into the sky once again as your creativity flows free and your sense of self expands beyond anything you thought possible. Yet, the only obstacle keeping you away from this is your own belief. You already are that free spirit, remember that and let the fire within you illuminate your soul…
June looks set to inspire you to breathe more deeply into the nooks and crannies within as you continue to create more space in your life, letting go of ‘stuff’ of all kinds and on all levels. Having a ‘spring clean’ of such epic proportions can invoke a great many emotions from sadness to letting go of stuff which has an emotional or sentimental attachment (from memories and beliefs to possessions and beyond) to a sense of liberation at the freedom created by lessening the load. You seem highly motivated now to continue this process in earnest as the more you let go of, the lighter and more energized you feel! As a result, there could be a tendency to get a bit ‘gung ho’ and over keen, so it’s important to think before you act, but, at the same time, too much procrastination can stifle and choke the process.
You have spent a long time carrying quite a burden in life due to the many duties and responsibilities you bear. At the same time, the natural human tendency to accumulate ‘stuff’ of all types builds up slowly over time and it can be hard to notice this until everything feels stagnant and stuck. This can lead to everything feeling even more cumbersome and heavy, leaving you feeling even more over-burdened, so it’s important to make the most of opportunities for a spring clean as the breathing space they create is precious. Yet, don’t feel you have to fill the spaces with other stuff; let them breathe and rest, like a field left fallow to recover where, in time, wild flowers flourish as new life appears. Spaces are a precious opportunity to rest in the moment and to keep life in balance, so savour them, treasure them and feel blessed to have them…
As you continue to embrace the philosophy of acceptance in your life, it seems you are beginning to feel a sense of peace growing within as you let go of your in-built tendency to push yourself hard in order to get from here to where you feel you need to be. You will always have aspirations of course as these inspire you to expand your boundaries and evolve, but it seems you are ready now to focus less on the gap between where you are and where you want to be as you are beginning to fully appreciate the value of the here and now. It’s easy to get caught up in an ever-growing spiral of chasing horizons and, over time, the pressure and frustration grows as the horizon never gets closer and goals ebb and flow with the passing of time.
Therefore having a clear and fixed goal is not always wise as it leaves little leeway for you to breathe, expand or change course, and it’s hard not to feel frustrated or disappointed if things don’t turn out quite as planned. June looks set to be a month of soul-searching as you seem ready to further expand your boundaries in life and allow yourself to grow ever more fluid in order to become one with the flow of life. Not like a piece of driftwood though, but like a champion surfer riding the crest of the waves; just as a surfer becomes one with the wave, it’s time now for you to become one with the true ebb and flow of life. Acceptance is a willingness to live more consciously in each and every moment; it is a willingness to breathe fully into life…
June looks set to be a month of magic and sparkle as you sense a new stirring deep within you which fills you with tingles of excitement and anticipation. Life has felt undeniably heavy recently as you have focused most, if not all, of your energy towards the business of keeping on keeping on. Getting things done has been necessary but there has been little room for creativity or breathing space which has left you out of kilter and off balance. Although you are skilled at the art of balancing on one leg or juggling many batons at any one time, doing so constantly can become tiring as well as rather dull. You need the room to stretch, to wiggle, to wriggle and to be you as confinement or containment stifles your spirit and makes it hard for you to feel interconnected and an integral part of life.
You are a vibrant and passionate soul, and although you would do just about anything for anyone, the cost is an increasing disconnection from yourself as your essence starts to wither through lack of wiggle room. It can be hard being you as you often feel an intense wave of guilt within if you say no to someone or prioritise your own needs, but unless you do, the lack of space and movement will lead to cramps and discomfort. So, it seems you need to strike a new balance in yourself between balancing on one leg (or ideally striking a new pose) and taking some wiggle time for yourself. Wiggle time does not have to be an activity, it can simply be resting in stillness in the moment, but it needs to be something that nourishes you from the inside, out…

June Energy Report 2015
June Energy Report 2015
a message from Jennifer Hoffman
To read more of Jennifer’s insight, visit her website, Enlightening Life
May was a tough month that had very little to do with Mercury retrograde, although it was a factor. I wrote in the May Energy Report that it was a month for ‘taking action’ and it was, but action involves a lot of things besides jumping in the car and taking off. A lot of planning and preparation has to be done that leads up to the action and that’s what May was for. While I was ready to launch my rocket into the stratosphere, I hadn’t check to see whether it was at the launch pad yet, with ‘all systems go’. In May, every attempted step forward brought up something else for clearing and that was necessary so we can be aligned with and integrate what we are ready to do in June. In June we have some challenges, the biggest ones being stepping out after a very long period of feeling a lack of mobility and freedom, and allowing ourselves to dream really big.
After the first five months of 2015 June may feel like an easy ride but that will be the surface view. Remember the ducks that glide so effortlessly across the water? We don’t see their little feet paddling furiously beneath the surface. Flowing with grace and ease is accompanied by a lot of consistent effort, commitment, and intentional focus. Last month I wrote about separating the ‘wheat from the chaff’, and this is what we’ll see. Who is ready for change and who isn’t? We find out this month and it’s time to walk the talk.
This month starts with a full moon and lots of Gemini action. I have always viewed Gemini as the house of karma and it is highly underrated by the astrology community. But with the Sun, Mars, Mercury, and Saturn, and the new and full moon activity highlighting this house, expect some reminders of karmic cycles, soul groups, soul mates, and the like, especially since Mercury is in some aspect of its retrograde cycle all month. It’s a good idea to double check your communications, leave a little extra time cushion when traveling, and don’t leave details up to chance during this period.
The bigger action this month is all about the energy, as we can now start working with the energy expansion we have created with all of our prior healing and release work. At some point the release and healing must stop, and we have to start taking action. It’s like spending hours cooking a meal that you eventually have to put on the table and eat. It’s now dinner time. But this is also choice and decision time and we’ll now get to see who is ready for action and who isn’t, because while everyone can take action, when faced with that choice, they won’t all choose it. Any fears around change and transformation, around leaving a comfort zone, no matter how stagnant or uncomfortable it is, will come to the surface now.
On a very positive note, the Venus and Jupiter conjunction in Leo gives this a ‘dreams can come true’ ‘month, be sure to dream big and expect big rewards and outcomes. This is an expansive aspect that can bring out the best in everything. It can also bring out the most in everything, so what works will work very well, and what doesn’t work could be very obviously awful. At the end of the month it joins Uranus, so we can expect some surprises and unexpected outcomes.
That offsets Saturn retrograde going back into Scorpio for the last time, a final connection with a cycle that began in late 1985. This aspect lasts until mid-September, so be aware of any ‘blasts from the past’ that arise for you, especially things that happened thirty years ago and are coming around again. What are you going to do differently this time? You can repeat the cycle or create a new path, the choice is always available.
Another big item this month is the ongoing Mercury square Neptune, which doesn’t look like much but it is highly important. It’s the missing piece that allows us to see the complete big picture, to see the truth beyond the ‘truth’, to remove the veil of deception that we sometimes like to hide behind. Mercury represents the important detail that derails the entire process, Neptune is where we can fool ourselves or be fooled, which is another aspect of fooling ourselves.
For example, you are ready to go on a road trip and your car’s engine burns up after the first 50 miles because you put off getting the oil changed for months. Or you are waiting for an important phone call and your phone dies just as the call comes through because you forgot to charge it. There is a lot of deception around us, much of it disguised to appear as truth. This is also the month the Jade Helm military exercise begins in the US, a highly publicized and suspiciously regarded event. With Mercury square Neptune at the same time we have the Venus/Jupiter conjunction, trine Uranus, the truth about it may be revealed in ways that no one can ignore. And since Jade Helm is starting with Mercury stationary retrograde, opposite Saturn and square Neptune, its prospects for hiding the truth and deception don’t look very good. If our eyes are open, we will see very clearly.
We have a big choice to make this month, one that we have already made on many levels, and now it’s a matter of integrating it into our daily lives. Remember that ‘creating heaven on earth’ is an integration, not a takeover. I have been writing about the ‘Christed Consciousness’, which we embody as the divine human, rather than the ‘Christ Consciousness’ that is the martyred or wounded healer, since 2011. Are we ready to embrace our power to integrate our divinity into our humanity? Can we release our polarized beliefs that spirit is ‘good’ and human is ‘bad’? Any polarization is not helpful, we can’t be too spiritual or too human, and duality is the new keyword for us. No more either/or, we are now in the ‘both’ space or better yet, as our multi-dimensional capability increases, in the space of ‘many’.
At some point we have to stop doing healing work and act on what we have learned. Are we afraid of repeating the past? That is one choice, along with the choice to use our new awareness and understanding to create new pathways for energy to follow. We create the realities of the new paradigms and we have a lot of support to get started now. But it’s a combination of aiming our
In light of everything that is happening in June, Mercury retrograde takes a back seat but in Gemini, opposing the Saturn retrograde and square Neptune, you can probably expect some insights around karma, soul contracts and connections, soul mates and help you create closure where it is needed and/or long overdue. And the truth will be dangled around this month quite a bit, the truths we know, those we don’t know, the ones we don’t want to know, as well as those that we need to face up to. It all gets revealed in the end.
Here are some questions to consider for this month:
Do you have unconscious habits that could use an overhaul, including how you view the truth?
Are there truths, in the form of beliefs, that you need to change now, or to allow a new level of awareness to become true for you?
Have your connections become attachments and is your service to others being delivered as a servant, instead of as a master?
Can you self-ishly set new intentions for your life so you are operating at your highest potential vibration and setting your most expanded intentions?
What does Christed Consciousness mean to you and are you ready to stop being the Martyred Healer and consider what it means to live from a more powerful, self-focused perspective?
We have amazing support to dream really big this month and then be prepared to take focused action to make those dreams part of our reality, keeping in mind that taking action includes planning and preparation. We have to aim our energy in the direction we want it to flow before it creates the intended outcomes. You may be ready to launch your rocket into the stratosphere but first make sure it is on the launch pad, the gas tank is full, and it’s pointing in the right direction.
Have a great month.

Navigate Emotional Tides during Full Moon
Navigate Emotional Tides during Full Moon
a message from Selacia
To read more of Selacia’s insight, visit her website, Selacia and The Council of Twelve
We have a powerful full moon this week, June 2 in adventuresome Sagittarius, setting the stage for some unpredictable emotional undercurrents arising in your life. Relationships will be front and center, emotional tides swirling and getting your attention. In this article I give some tips for navigating these energies and keeping things in perspective.
This will help you begin June in a positive and powerful way, reducing the likelihood of re-dos and fixes. In my 2015 Predictions article I described the need this year to update the status quo in your life. This includes relationships, so vital to your progress and enlightenment. I’m mentioning this now because this week’s full moon is likely to shine the light on imbalances in your relationships – to yourself, to others, and to spirit.
Benefits of Knowing Ahead
When you are about to have a challenging energy cycle, there are benefits of knowing ahead and also reminding yourself during the cycle so you can stay present. Knowing what you are dealing with can add peace to your day, helping you to have a bigger picture.
Remember, too, that no cycle is all good or all bad. When there is a ripple on the water, it doesn’t mean a tidal wave is approaching. Don’t let fear color your experiences, preventing you from enjoying your day. Opportunities and benevolent situations will exist alongside challenges.
Tips for this Full Moon Week
The following are some suggestions to make the most of this week’s energies.
First – Ground yourself more regularly than usual now. You will need to be fully present and connected to your heart, and you can only do that to the extent you are grounded. Being grounded will help you avoid enlarging on issues that get illuminated by the full moon.
Second – Since emotions may be amplified, when the negative ones like anger arise, deal with them within yourself before you take actions or communicate with others. Use times like this to become more skilled managing your emotions. This is a vital key to good relationships.
Third – Full moons tend to bring to light what you couldn’t see before. Some of what you discover will trigger emotions – happy, sad, and everything in between. Do your best to stay neutral as new information is revealed. Even the things that really are personal to you are better viewed from the higher perspective of spirit. Invite that view so you can respond appropriately.
Fourth – This particular cycle may trigger some deep inner questions – about where you are really going and why you are living your life as you are. When these arise, don’t simply dismiss them or treat them like a repeat that has no resolution. Go deeper within yourself and contemplate these questions in a new way, asking spirit for a fresh approach.
Fifth – Right now is a beneficial time to update your view of how you express your soul purpose. The current energies support your receiving a new sense of clarity about your path. Therefore, be open to new information. It’s possible you could have overlooked a key activity or even a certain relationship crucial to your next steps.
You are a divine changemaker, here now to be at the forefront of creating a brand-new type of world. Deep within your bones, you know the merits of what you are doing and being. Remind yourself daily that you do not walk alone. You are surrounded and supported by countless beings who share your light-filled vision. Even if you sometimes can’t feel this, trust that the support is there.
