Better Yet, the PERCEPTION of Truth
The words I wrote back in October 2020 for the 2021 forecast hold true:
We’re shaken about what’s happening in the collective and can reestablish our footing by diving into our deepest wishes and desires. This is the time to set our intentions for the next 6 months based upon the theme of truth. What is true for each of us? Rely on the guideposts we’ve been planting for the first half of the year. We can combat the doubt and insecurity by focusing on our long-term goals. Also, be open and honest to avoid unnecessary squabbles and power plays.
Big Star Events (chronologically):
- Mercury still retrograde: 5/29 – 6/22
- New Moon/Eclipse: 6/10
- Saturn square Uranus: 6/14 for 2nd time this year
- Venus back in bounds 6/18
- Jupiter retrograde: 6/20 – 10/18
- Neptune retrograde: 6/25 – 12/1
Week 1: Complications
The first week of June continues the mixed bag energy of May. June begins as May ends – confusing, destabilizing and complicating, yet filled with opportunities for success. 2021 has proven to move and shake to help find footing in what’s real and not real. On one hand, you have a force pushing you toward success and recognition and on the other, it’s complicated with intense power plays and competitive forces pulling at you. In the middle, there’s a nebulous protective veil making you feel safe and secure. Mixed bag? That’s an understatement.
Week 2: Ch-ch-changes
The week begins with exciting news and you’re riding high, filled with confidence. Your mind is in full gear and wants to digest lots of information. You seek any and all activity. You desire fun and lightness after these last many months. Then as quickly as this fun bubble begins, it deflates. Your hit a low energy and it’s too much for you. You get knocked with disappointment through dishonesty or deception. What you think is true proves not to be.
Highlight: June 14th is one of the big star clangs of the year (reminiscent of February). Refer to my long post about how it affects you: https://www.kimwoods.com/2021starclang/ Change is upon you. You can’t stop it, so don’t try. These changes are for your own good. Let go of outdated patterns of behavior and take action to embrace your future. Remember, growth is unfamiliar, so your mind wants to reject it. Don’t let your mind lead. Your heart knows what’s good for you. Follow its whispers. Hint: It’s about being naturally, unapologetically and authentically you.
New Moon: Mind or Intuition?
Details: June 10 Annular Solar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini @ 6:54 am ET
The New Moon is all about the mind – how it thinks, speaks, converses, observes, perceives and intuits. It’s also about how busy it can get, tangled in confusion and playing games with you about how you use your time, focus and energy. The upcoming changes on the heels of those coming fast and furious this year, have you questioning yourself and others. Adding to the mix is an intensity about power and control over your home and work lives. You feel pushed and pulled. My ONE tip? Drop into your heart and let it guide you. You’ve heard me say this plenty of times, your heart always knows.
Week 3: Soft & Slow
The 3rd week gives you a much-needed breath. Take it slow and relax into the sweet, sensitive energies of the watery signs. You feel creative and compassionate. Let yourself fall into an easy rhythm and carve out time for self-care and tender moments. Live, laugh and love. Jupiter retrogrades on June 20th until October, giving you clarity on the ways you’re taking advantage of your gifts. Your life’s quest is under review – how are you doing against your soul mission? Are you fulfilling your heart’s desires? Will you say YES to living your life to its fullest or will you remain in the comfortable safe haven you’ve created for yourself? This is an easy time to relax and renew, and it’s also a good time to ponder your answers.
Week 4: Opportunity
June ends with opportunity. You feel good with increased enthusiasm. The prior week’s pace renews your energy and outlook. Accept growth with confidence. As the days click by, pressure intensifies and relationships become fraught with suspicions and jealousy. Don’t succumb. This is about control. Let go of control and step into influence. Your power comes from the fluidity of it, not the holding of power over another.
For those keeping track, on June 25th, Neptune joins Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in retrograde motion. The rose-colored glasses come off. You get a glimpse of clarity. You may like what you see and you may not. Try not to judge. It is what it is. Accept it, make a plan for taking strides and take action.
At the end of the month, there’s a driving force asking you to step into your future. This is more than the other energetic forces to date this year. It’s almost as if the stars are telling you – now or never. Psst…say YES.
Full Moon: Balance
Details: June 24 Cancer & Capricorn @ 3 ° at 2:40 pm ET
Balance is the goal of this Full Moon. Balance between female and male, inner and outer life, yin and yang, to be or to do. You have intellectual support from Mercury as he’s tiring of his antics and is beautifully helping you right now. Good luck, good news, good fortune is upon you. Does it feel fortunate? That’s the key question. The struggle comes from an intense battle for your right to be the central character of life. If you’ve been standing in this position for a while now, you feel fine. It’s natural for you, so you can deepen your commitment to yourself while beautifully supporting others. If this is new for you, however, you feel a power play for control. Let it go. Seriously. Let. It. Go. You gain more by embracing the nuances of balancing act required of you than you do by pushing others away.
Supportive Intuitive Tools
Tarot: Player – Child of Worlds
With the child card, you’ve mastered setbacks by seeing them as opportunities and are now ready to explore the playfulness of life. You lighten up and say YES to learning with curiosity and wonder. Love the journey by being a perpetual beginner. Be present in the journey, not the destination.
This crystal is an excellent calming and grounding stone. It assists in all spiritual connections – Akashic records, shamanic journeying, cosmic awareness and spiritual exploration. It helps process past life feelings to help remove blockages in the present. Lepidolite balances your mind-body-spirit and reminds you that you are your own soul mate.
Flower essence: Agrimony
Bach flower essence, agrimony, helps you deal with uncertainty as it aligns you with your inner truth. It allows your true feelings to come to the fore by deeming them important enough to have a voice. You’ve been pretending everything is fine, regardless of how you actually feel. Your feelings are important and pretending otherwise undermines them and you. Let agrimony assist in your alignment with your own inner truth.
Truth is a perception. What’s true for you, may or may not be true for someone else. Let your definition of truth guide you in your own life without interfering with another’s definition of truth. Let go of judgement, step into alignment with your inner wisdom and allow the opportunities to flow.
How to use this forecast: I’ve abbreviated the writing of my monthly forecasts while enhancing their practical uses. Here are my recommendations.
Quickly at the start of each month:
- Peruse the forecast to see what jumps out at you and make a note of the date(s) on your calendar.
- Go through the weekly themes and compare it to what’s on your own schedule. Make slight adjustments if there are particularly startling events on days you have major plans.
- Find intuitive tools to incorporate into your month.
- Look over the weekly themes and drill down on those jiving with what you have going on in your week.
- Include a different, lighter or deeper approach depending upon the weekly theme.
- For each lunar cycle, use the natural power of the Moon to ramp up energy for success or to release and overcome obstacles.
- At the end of the month, take a quick glance over the month to see what works and what doesn’t to make adjustments for the upcoming one.
