Get ready for feelings!
During most of June, Channels from the emotional Center are activated, letting us all experience the ups and downs of our feeling world. Jupiter is in Gate 55, of abundant emotion, all month, while Saturn enters Gate 19, Sensitivity, on the 11th. What to do when feelings come up? They can be overwhelming. Repressing them means you push them back into your body, which is not good for your health. Letting them spill over into the neighborhood makes for bad relations. So here’s a piece of advice: express your feelings without directing them to someone. Move your body, sing, shout out in your car, do some gardening. You can be creative in your expression. And while you express, stay alert and mindful. There is a deeper layer to your feelings, they are emanations from Spirit. If you can trace the path backwards to that source, you can access sacred, mysterious, archetypal spaces. Not only your physical, also your emotional body can be your temple. At the core of it is a singing silence, or however it manifests for you.
Feeling in the material world
Being intimate with your own feeling world helps in the practical, material world too. Most of us live in the assumption that we can take rational decisions, weighing the pros and contras until we arrive at a balanced, reasonable outcome. It doesn’t work that way. Just like the continents drift on a layer of molten rock, our mental concepts are conditioned by deep-held emotions and beliefs. In essence these are collective, although each of us expresses an individual variation of them. Neptune is one of the planets that connects with these transpersonal influences. This month it stands in Gate 36, Crisis Resolution. It activates Channel 35-36, Transitoriness, twice this month : from June 2 – 7 with the Sun, and June 18 – 27 with Mercury. This Channel goads us to have new experiences at any price. It is evolutionary : when humanity enters new fields of experience, the collective progresses. The consequences for us as individuals are not its concern. People with this Channel in their Charts often find themselves kind of helplessly drifting into new undertakings, affairs, and crisis situations in general.
Making clear decisions about money
To take decisions on the spur of the moment, under the influence of this Channel, is not a good idea. It’s wise to wait until emotional clarity arrives. In the current planetary environment, these decisions have to do with the material world and with our role in the community. From June 7 – 17 and June 28 – July 5 Mercury activates the Channel of Money (12-45) with Chiron.
There is a potential of becoming more clear about how we like to deal with money and possessions. How much do we want or need for ourselves, what do we wish to share with our community? June 7 – 17 is a good time to consider these questions, without taking immediate action. Mercury is still going retrograde, causing confusion in communication and monetary matters. Simultaneously Channel 39-55, Emoting, between Venus and Jupiter from June 10 – 14, can give rise to strong emotional waves. Welcome and watch whatever feelings come until June 27. From June 23 Mercury runs direct again, and on the 28th it reactivates the Money Channel with Chiron. On the base of renewed clarity, you can take steps to materialize your ideas.
The Sacred Spirit is feminine
Uranus, planet of new ideas and pioneering visions, puts an ingredient in the pot too : on June 18 it moves into Gate 2, Orientation, and stays there until Oct 24. This is the most receptive hexagram in the I Ching, which makes it paradoxically one of the most powerful. Isn’t the womb the source of our existence here? Here Uranus’ sometimes feverish energy can slow down, tune in to the heartbeat of the Earth and let itself be inspired be feminine wisdom. It is another expression of the same energy that gives rise to our waves of feeling. The Sacred Spirit is feminine, and for the next five months, Uranus can put its ear on her breast and listen to her heartbeat. In June, this gives us the possibility to integrate respect for the Earth into our decision-making process on the material plane.
To our good health, individual and on a planetary level!
