JUNE: as summer beckons, so does opportunity, which blossoms like a tropical flower after a rainstorm.

space




s 

June is busting out all over, so if you haven’t already got things underway to take advantage of continuing fair skies, time to get on with it. Blossoms are blooming and blooms are blossoming, wherever buds had been hibernating through a cold spring (symbolically speaking, as astrologically it’s the same down under, despite reversal of weather seasons).  There are multiple trines and grand trines daily to tie your ambitions to, so the chances of a good outcome are high, even if you’re not doing the actual choosing first-hand. The afflictions of the last year are for the moment dispersed, and future ones are yet to threaten, so embrace the smiling heavens and let them enfold you with their potential.

The only caveat in the midst of all this vernal glory is to keep a steady hand on the wheel, even as you relax into the pace. It’s very easy to go faster than you intend and wind up overshooting the mark or spinning off the road even on a gentle curve. When the wind is at your back, you can get swept along to situations you may not be able to sustain when the weather gets more unstable. Enjoy the experience and take on as much as you can, just not more than you can handle later.
