June 2016 Overview Horoscope
June 2016 is a highly unstable and turbulent month. The planets that transit Gemini (the Sun, Venus, and Mercury) form a cross in the mutable signs, together with Jupiter (situated in Virgo), Saturn (in Sagittarius), and Neptune (in Pisces).
The cosmic cross is the configuration that gathers most of the tense aspects: two oppositions and four squares. In this case, we’re dealing with: the Jupiter-Neptune opposition (active beginning last year), the opposition between Saturn and the planets in Gemini, the squares between Saturn-Neptune, Jupiter-Saturn, Neptune-planets in Gemini, and Jupiter-planets in Gemini.
Moving rapidly and entering in aspects with each of the three slow-moving planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune), the planets that transit Gemini play the role of activating the cosmic cross and triggering significant, impressive, bewildering events.
On a macro scale, the cosmic cross of June 2016 could come with rebellions and very meaningful events regarding transportation, communication, and information, but also in areas which Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune have started to affect ever since last year: justice, religion, learning, culture, medicine, migration, frontiers, strangers and far-away lands, and so on.
Like in all cases when dealing with a cosmic cross, we can also expect dramatic events, conflicts, and catastrophes. Events become more intense in June 2016, considering the fact that on June 18 the square between Saturn and Neptune is perfected.
Neptune seems to play a particularly significant role during June 2016, because throughout the month it’s in retrograde station, remaining almost motionless at an approximate 12° Pisces (it starts the retrograde motion on June 13). Neptune has to do with idealism, creativity, imagination, intuition, mercy and dedication, but also with lies, fraud, deceit, dubious or criminal circles, illusions, ambiguity, chaos and disarray, estrangement, exile, deception.
On the other hand, June 2016 could also bring reforms, transformations, constructive developments, and getting back on the right track – more visible during the second part of the month, because two more “heavy-weights” form an exact aspect, this time a harmonious one: on June 26 the Jupiter-Pluto trine is perfected.
Another significant astrological event of June 2016: Mercury ends its retrograde cycle in Taurus – a more than 2-month-long cycle, that must’ve lead to analysis, reconsidering, and clarifying certain aspects from one or another areas of each of our lives. It’s precisely in this area that the Mercury-Mars opposition from June 9 could bring precipitated events, conclusions, and decisions during the first half of the month.
Last but not least, big news: on June 30 2016 Mars resumes its direct motion, after two and a half months of being retrograde. Situated in a direct station, Mars is strong and positive, even more so when it’s at home in Scorpio. So barriers are lifted, goals become clear, while actions and initiatives begin to have more coherence and bigger chances of success.

May 2016 Overview Horoscope
Even if it comes with its own set of issues, May 2016 is a lot more forgiving than previous months. It’s actually heartening, in more ways than one.
During the first two decans of May 2016 the fortunate relations between Jupiter (the Greater Benefic), situated in Virgo, and the planets that transit Taurus (the Sun, Venus, and Mercury) create a wave of enthusiasm and optimism. Everything goes smoothly, and if there are some mix-ups or obstacles, we approach them in a relaxed manner and find solutions. The way things go changes, how one looks at things changes.
Mercury is retrograde until May 22 2016, when it resumes its direct motion. But this time Mercury retrogrades in a more favorable astral context, that emphasizes the positive aspects of retrograding: greater ability to analyze situations in depth, to reconsider some things in a constructive manner. It’s a good time to rethink a strategy, to fix some errors, to resume a discussion, presenting arguments in a new light, to reconsider, renegotiate.
Jupiter resumes its direct motion too, on May 9 2016, which greatly increases your strength.
Jupiter’s positive power is backed up by positive aspects with the rapid planets that transit Taurus, but also by the old trine with Pluto, that is on its way to being perfected (it will be perfected in June).
But Jupiter also has a force that disturbs, aided by negative aspects with Saturn, Neptune, and Mars. This disturbing force could cause disarray in some areas of personal life for each of us.
On a macro scale of things, Jupiter’s disturbing force sets in strong motion things related to borders, migration, and international business, to fraud and grand-scale deceit (the Wolkswagen and Panama Files scandals are just two examples, that show what Jupiter is capable of when disturbed by the square with Saturn and by the opposition with Neptune), complications that have to do with legislation, education, religion or culture, and health (the wave of illnesses like Zyka and such is also related to the T square between Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune, particularly through zodiac signs in which the three planets are situated). It can even be part of setting in motion destructive natural phenomena.
In any of the areas mentioned above, things could take a turn for the worse during May 2016, but more so after the 20th, when rapid planets (the Sun, then Venus) transition Gemini, from where they make dissonant aspects with Jupiter (situated in Virgo), Saturn and Mars (both in Sagittarius), and Neptune (in Pisces).
Finally, Mars continues to be retrograde. The road through Sagittarius is the most dangerous, because it ties it in an unwanted manner to the Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune combo, and, during the third week of the month, to the Sun and Venus. On May 27 2016 Mars re-enters Scorpio in retrograde motion, where it feels more comfortable.
In short, May 2016 is a very interesting and stimulating month, that offers many opportunities, particularly during the first two decans. But it also has a risky side, troubling or destabilizing, active particularly during the last decan, mostly between 20 and 27.
