Astrobutterfly ~ The Astrology of June 2020: Solar Eclipse in Cancer (+ My Own Notes on this Month’s Alignments)

Here’s another terrific big picture overview by Astrobutterfly. I’ll just add that in addition to what she mentions here:

June 3rd, 2020 – Venus Conjunct Sun

On June 3rd, Venus retrograde is conjunct the Sun at 13° Gemini, and a new 584-day Venus cycle begins.

This is when Venus leaves her nightgown and transforms into a morning star. Venus is still invisible, burned by the Sun. But it is in the purifying heat of the Sun where we will experience a rebirth of the heart.

Read more about this process of metamorphosis here: Venus’ Descent Into The Underworld – From Evening Star To Morning Star.

A recent dream alerted me to the importance of 13 Gemini and 13 Pisces on Monday into Tuesday, right before Venus conjuncts the Sun at 13 Gemini. It turns out this pivotal event when Venus begins her new cycle, also squares Mars and the asteroid Nessus at 13 Pisces. Astrobutterfly talks about Mars as the planet of action, but with Mars also conjunct Nessus, a centaur that can indicate “obsession” and “cycles of abuse,” we see more clearly the dynamics that this Venus reset aims to shift. Look at any relationships with cycles of abuse — whether in their own right, or in generational, ancestral and societal patterns of abuse.

As usual the alignments of June 2020 hit uncannily precise spots in my natal chart. My natal Venus is within minutes of 13 degrees Gemini, and my natal Mars is at 10 degrees 10 minutes Pisces, exactly (to the minute) conjunct my mom’s Mars. Nessus has been hanging around that area for awhile now since centaurs move slowly, but to have Nessus conjunct both transiting and my natal Mars, square Venus at the moment of a new Venus cycle — right on my own natal Venus? Wowza.

In addition to the Sun-Mars square that day, the June 5 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius conjuncts my natal Juno, an asteroid connected with relationships, especially romantic ones. Mercury will turn direct right on my natal Vesta, the keeper of the flame, vestal virgin and a different kind of relationship asteroid. When the Sun conjuncts the collective North Node on June 19, it also conjuncts David’s natal Venus and my progressed Saturn. As Astrobutterfly notes:

The Solar Eclipse in Cancer is a North Node eclipse. Unlike South Node eclipses, which have a karmic flavor, North Node eclipses are opportunities to rewrite the script of our destiny.

The North Node is like a vortex – anything is possible when we have a North Node Eclipse. But be mindful of what you do. Because there will always be a payout – usually at a future South Node eclipse. 

The Sun is conjunct the North Node once every year. This is the best day of the year to ask yourself “Who am I really?” “What is my true purpose? What is my life path?”

Notice the first answer that comes to you. Gemini has a curious, open-minded vibe. It is important that you don’t try to seek confirmations or validations to existing assumptions during this time.

Instead – be like a Gemini. Be open-minded. Welcome new perspectives. Accept that you don’t yet have all the answers. 

(Laura again): If you’ve not read my North Node Horoscopes for June, you can read Catherine’s intro and find the link to them here. I’ve shared only some of my own uncanny, personal transits this month, but make no mistake: everyone will feel at least a few of these astro events. We’re talking major shift potential. Do give some thought to any cycles of abuse that you’d like to resolve and/or release. The alignment on June 1-3 seems extra potent for both clarity and healing.

Again, you can find Astrobutterfly’s full write-up here.

June North Node Horoscopes are Up

Due to the holiday weekend, these got posted a little later than the usual 22nd, but they’re up now.

North Node June Theme!

Eclipse Season begins with a Sagittarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on June 5, followed by a Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse on June 21st, just one day after Summer Solstice. These events will affect everyone on some level. Whether or not it triggers any destiny level activity in your life depends on not only the sign but especially the degree of your North Node.

You can read the rest of the intro and find your individual North Node Horoscope by clicking here. (If you don’t know your North Node sign, Catherine Grace O’s blog has a handy chart to figure it out.)

Normally, I recommend reading both your sign and the sign associated with the house of your North Node (if you know it), but this month has such specific alignments in the sky that your North Node sign kind of trumps its house. You can read both, but the house is less involved in the predictions than it often is. For reference:

1st House North Node = Aries North Node similarities

2nd House North Node = Taurus North Node similarities

3rd House North Node = Gemini North Node similarities

4th House North Node = Cancer North Node similarities

5th House North Node = Leo North Node similarities

6th House North Node = Virgo North Node similarities

7th House North Node = Libra North Node similarities

8th House North Node = Scorpio North Node similarities

9th House North Node = Sagittarius North Node similarities

10th House North Node = Capricorn North Node similarities

11th House North Node = Aquarius North Node similarities

12th House North Node = Pisces North Node similarities

For example, if you have a Leo North Node in the 12th house, your primary North Node Horoscope would be Leo, but you’ll also find guidance in the Pisces North Node information. The beauty of North Node horoscopes is that you can usually calculate the sign without an exact birth time, and the sign is always super relevant to your life path. As with anything in astrology, though, the more exact time you have, the more subtle information you can glean.

Again, this month’s North Node Horoscopes are less house-specific and more sign-specific than usual.

Happy Eclipse Season and Venus Retrograde!
