2020 as the year of change continues with the month of June containing three solar eclipses within 30 days, three planetary stations, and the conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto at the very end.
As my article on the police brutality riots sparked in Minneapolis and spreading to other cities as of this writing in late May/early June shows, a lot of things are coming together.
In my experience, intense astrology hardly ever turns out as worse as we might fear, things falls somewhere in the middle. However, with the Covid-19 pandemic and now the riots stemming from the police brutality incident resulting in the death of George Lloyd in Minneapolis, we might expect and intensification of the “storm” of energies perhaps peaking somewhat after the thirteenth of June, or so.
But there are many peaks occurring throughout June 2020, which may drag things on.
- June 5-6, Lunar Eclipse square Mars and semisquare Saturn: this looks like a potential peak of the current crisis involving police brutality in the US currently, which could mean some sort of crackdown or extreme measures put into place, which not everyone may be happy with.
- June 13, Mars conjunct Neptune: energy, motivation and actions may be very dysfunctional. Energy and spirits may be low.
- June 17, Mercury stationary retrograde: we may see some glimmers of light here, but words, thoughts and resultant actions may not go as they were intended to be.
- June 20, Summer Solstice: the longest day of the year for the Northern Hemisphere; for the Southern Hemisphere the shortest. It’s the turning of the seasons.
- June 21, Solar Eclipse square Mars: added emphasis on anger, use of force and/or intimidation, hurt-offense of a dysfunctional ego. Loss of strength, deceits.
- June 22, Neptune stationary retrograde: so close to the eclipse, very disorienting and confusing. Loss of will, dysfunctional behaviors. Delusion and illusion.
- June 25, Venus stationary direct: experience of love and beauty, new developments in relationships, hope.
- June 30, Jupiter conjunct Pluto: high risk/reward actions; ideals, philosophy or religion as a strategy; extreme arrogance and daring of initiatives, but can be very ethically questionable.
As you can see, the current run of situations, from the coronavirus pandemic, to the George Lloyd death, to developing rifts between the US and China; many of these could ride the wave, so to speak, of the energies and catapult society into new directions.
