Astrology By Dorene June 2014
From June 14-25 wewill move into the third cardinal Grand Cross, which involves Mars in Libra,Jupiter in Cancer, Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. Here again weare challenged to move out of old patterns and mindsets, especially in theareas of relationships, home/security, identity and work/life path. The more weare resistant to change, the harder our life can become during this time. This cycle begins with Mars in square to Pluto on June 14. The process oftearing down old structures can lead to renewal and a new sense of purpose.

The New Moon occurson June 27 at 5 Cancer 37. It opposes Pluto and is in a trine toNeptune. The focus will be on issues connected with home, family,security, and our emotional/feeling side. Issues around power and control inrelationships may surface at this time. This lunation also widelyactivates the cardinal Grand Cross, reminding us we are still in a period ofintense changes. The benevolent Neptune trine brings inspiration, faithand grace that is readily available. The Sabian symbol for this degree,“Game birds feathering their nests; an instinctual dedication of self to newforms of life,” suggests taking a supportive stance as we nurture new forms ofgrowth within ourselves and our relationships.
