At the arrival of the solstice on June 21, what will the new season unleash on humanity?
ANSWER: Five of Rings reversed
Five of Rings reversed isn’t all bad of a solstice unleashing, but the season ahead is certainly more severe and ascetic than usual.
The sobering reality of hardship or impending destitution is hard to shake. Adversity is more of a palpable vibe or issue than it normally is.
Matters of poverty, wealth, and all things economic stirs the air. It’s a good time to start saving a penny for a rainy day, that’s for sure, because Five of Rings reversed prospects can get dire.
Get your money right; the macro pecuniary forecast is startling. It’s in for a shakeup, but if finances are in order, then of course it is survivable, with opportunities to thrive, though with Five of Rings reversed as the June banner, it’s better safe than sorry.
Help, the concept of help and the necessity of it, is also a key issue. Expect vital aid programs or systems of support to tank, sparking sadness and fear.
The shocking suicides in the early part of the month are indicative of this energy, but Five of Rings reversed extends outside of mental health into countless life areas. Many aspects of existence start to feel bankrupt, as if the value has dissipated because the tides are changing. Indeed, fortunes are shifting. What was once profitable simply is no longer that. What’s valuable in the long-term, economically and in terms of personal values, is also almost painfully acute this month. Something’s off.
Things may appear sadder than usual, more ratchet, decrepit or wretched. Something is lacking, pitiful and cruel.
Five of Rings reversed ushers in benefits as well, including the legitimate ability to improve situations. Just because something is defunct, ill, or no longer functioning well doesn’t mean all is lost. What’s apparent is the need for attention, to actually see what’s wrong. June serves as a springboard, a catalyst for later solutions. Be advised, these are not easy problems and will take a while to resolve - gotta be in it for the long haul.

June 6, 8, 13, 30 are all important days for communication around seeking aid and trade. On a personal level, speaking up and communicating is paramount, with Mercury-Chiron and Mercury-Pluto aspects peaking on the above days to spark deep dialogue. However, some of these conversations may drudge up the dirt. These talks are ultimately cathartic but sh*t-slinging or some type of pain or hardship may mark a key part of the discussions. It’s necessary to air it all out. These issues are going to take several months to resolve. Clearer pathways emerge on and after May 6, 2019, when Mercury enters Taurus.
KEY JUNE THEMES FOR EACH SUN / RISING / MOON SIGN:
Aries - Ace of Swords reversed: Ram, there are a lot of good ideas swirling around. Ace of Swords reversed suggests June is an amazing incubation period for any kind of strategy or plan. If a writing project or a contractual agreement is on the table, it’s probably brilliant, but will take a while to hatch, at least until September. Ace of Swords reversed can be unconvincing at first, by feeling like a twitch rather than a strong impulse that requires action. This is why the incubation is so important, because some of these concepts are unconvincing and need to be further fleshed out. Gestation should not be confused with procrastination in the months ahead. Second-guessing is going to happen, that’s the natural course. The strongest idea eventually becomes the most clear due to staying power. The value is obvious if it continues to prompt deep inspiration over a health span of time.
Taurus - Seven of Swords: Bull, strategize. Seven of Swords suggests a new game plan is necessary. The details aren’t the same, so don’t rush to conclusions by applying rote knowledge. Take time figuring out what to do. Rushing to validate a perception may only engender a fake world or living lie. The answers are in stillness, research and reflection. Self-sacrifice versus self-interest is another major theme in the weeks ahead, with authentic evaluations going on in the realm of personal truths. In May, the Taurus card for the month, Eight of Cups reversed, pointed to a maturation process, one that could have been deeply repressed or unavailable on the conscious plane. In June, similar matters are playing out, with circumstances presenting issues you may not be readily equipped to handle or personality facets that have not been owned up to. Instead of true cooperation, defensive mechanisms may have been steering action, prompting more conflict instead of settling the issue. Listening or taking a more passive stance is better because there’s something you’re not seeing that requires acknowledgement. Neglect or turning a blind eye only makes what’s present and wonderful wither. Pay attention.
Gemini - Ace of Cups: Twins, love is front and center as the most pertinent overarching life theme in the weeks ahead. Ace of Cups as a forecast is wonderful if love is present, but when it’s not, it aches. This reality, of love glowing or aching, may be happening simultaneously, it’s not mutually exclusive. Ace of Cups is part of a fresh realm of relating, in relationships and individually, on your own, internally, in solitude. The new you needs new ways of loving and that’s that. Caring and affection is coming through, and in most cases, this should be fun, with some kind of ebullience attached to it. It’s joyful. Follow bliss please. For too long compassion, care and romance have been sidelined.
Cancer - Ten of Wands: Cancer, the stress threshold requires evaluation. Ten of Wands is one last push toward completion that is exhausting or taxing, but is it necessary to push things this far? In June, take the time out to determine how sustainable sources of pressure are. A tremendous effort that takes up so much time and energy simply cannot be a long-term activity. It is not physically possible for a human being to run a marathon for every waking moment of life. Health is a huge component and should not be overlooked. Stress is more than a mental health phenomenon, it does physical damage too, so, is it worth it? Something needs to end. Try wrapping it up by November, Ten of Wands favors this timeline of completion.
Leo - Santa Muerte: Lion, this is a huge transformational period that won’t kick off in full gear until November 8, 2018, when Jupiter transits into Sagittarius. Right now is the difficult part, waiting and watching the defunct die hard. Since this is a major life change, sorting through every facet is advantageous. Santa Muerte descends to make this move almost karmic. You have not been spared from catharsis in recent months and the trend continues. If given multiple options, the best one is to wait. Waiting it out allows for these deep emotions, intuitions and everything else to get sorted out before the big event goes down.
Virgo - Five of Swords: Virgin, the battlefield is raging again. Five of Swords is a warring type of card, filled with headaches and fatigue. Any conflicts can be resolved, but you need a team. Enlisting assistants may not be as difficult as imagined because there are people out there who want to help. Watch out for headaches and mind fatigue too. It’s important to find resolution, at least the very least to ease pressure and enhance your mental state by lessening worry.
Libra - Four of Wands reversed: Scales, where you are basing your future is of principal concern. Domestic issues are likely to emerge with Four of Wands reversed, not necessarily in a bad way, but loads of concerns around home make it important to map out a different approach to where or how you live. Connections are everything; this will be resolved through who you know. Whether it is a realtor, caretaker, dog walker, in-home nurse, cleaner, interior designer or roommate, networks within the community are essential. Wait for this to become comfortable and settled by April 20, 2019, when Venus is in Aries.
Scorpio - Nine of Cups reversed: Scorpion, things are really on the up. Nine of Cups reversed suggests an ideal may be corrupted by solemnity though. The dream, the vision… something still needs maturing; an emotional reality continues to unfold into a large, sweeping landscape. Taking stock of growth and fulfillment is a necessary step in June, to see where else to expand in the world of your desires.
Sagittarius - The Moon reversed: Centaur, you may be unable to see what the issue is. The Moon reversed inhabits the deepest, darkest recesses of the soul and irrationality is likely to be peaking. This card is rarely easy, upright or in its reversal position, because heavy emotions are attached to it, it’s weighted and not fun. The feelings are way in your face, but the answers are far, far away. Nothing makes sense and there are few, if any, explanations as to why it is going down like this. The best way to deal with this energy is to relax and allow all of these intense emotions to flow through; they are informing you of something that will become clear later. This is a period of hardcore spiritual learning where core truths cannot be ignored or avoided. Tap into emotional depths to comprehend what is really going on. Get all the gunk out to clear out the way on a future path.
Capricorn - Six of Swords reversed: Goat, the path is blocked. It may suddenly feel like you don’t know where to go or how to get there. Six of Swords reversed suggests something is stalled in June. Although it may occur like a nightmare, it’s in fact the beginning of a very exciting series of unexpected next steps. Transformation is afoot, the game plan needs to alter. Whether this is a business strategy, a life circumstance, or whatever, it wasn’t planned for, so it’s not part of an ongoing outline. This is the universe providing you with a shakeup that will ultimately benefit everything. Believe that you will reach new shores because of this.
Aquarius - Five of Pentacles: Water Bearer, a miserable situation has become a mire and seeking help is the only solution. Five of Pentacles is a card that suggests asking for assistance is hard, but without it survival is on the line in some fashion, this has reached peak destitution. Deep soul searching may have awakened the awareness other, more base, impulses are affecting this situation. This could apply to yourself, or to another party in your orbit, such as a person or community. Try to get the problem under control as much as best you can, because it will only grow more burdensome without some type of expedient intervention. Improvement is not impossible.
Pisces - Five of Cups reversed: School of Fish, emotional sensitivity is high. Painful relationship dynamics or inscrutable, hard to get a hang on matters of the heart, may be sparking major grief. Five of Cups reversed indicates sadness and loss. It’s easy to become entangled in an emotional mess, because the heartache or distress over the loss is still lingering. The best way to approach the situation is with hope and the willingness to feel what needs to be felt. Also, this is a two’s company, three’s a crowd scenario. Wherever you are on the scale, a certain level of faithfulness is required in partnerships, otherwise it’s better to go it alone. Anything less than full emotional support constitutes a betrayal in this climate, so being around people who share your devotion is good on the soul, at least in June. Fidelity and commitment to emotional wellness is the name of the game. Give space to fully resolve this issue by October or November, during Scorpio season.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
- Hard times are coming or have already arrived. The economy is changing. There may be bad financial news on the way. A bleak forecast for finances macroeconomically. The world seems poorer, with more problems than solutions. Thank goodness this will pass, but these are real problems.
- Save. Definitely think about long-term financial plans and future security in general.
- The sobering weight of life is palpable. There is a gravity attached to events that is austere and sometimes even depressing.
- Ask for help. Things that once mattered don’t anymore. It may be important to find an ally who can walk you through why.
- Health breakthroughs are likely to occur throughout the month medically and through conservation efforts. Scientists will find something that boosts well-being and immunity. On a personal level, an initially unpropitious matter can lead to an eventual health or life improvement. It’ll just take time to manifest the positive results.
- Get healthy. Wherever there is unhealthiness, be it literally in the body or related to something external, like finances, start to focus on getting well.
- Internment matters. Jail, be it literal or psychological, and other issues of confinement emerge.
- Renew. A broad purge is occurring leading ultimately to renewal. It can be sad to watch though and unstable.
- This isn’t the end of the world. Sometimes times get rough, it’s nature. Totally keep the faith, it’ll all work out, but in some cases, it may feel like it’s getting way worse before it gets better. Let’s be real and acknowledge the dismal truth, then grow from it.
