July 2016 Overview Horoscope
July 2016 is, without a doubt, a lot more relaxed than previous months.
Mars has resumed its direct motion at the end of the previous month, so energy is consumed in a more efficient manner, actions are more coherent, and initiatives are better inspired. Many of us now begin to learn from (often stressful) experiences of previous months. And many of those who have wandered or even made backward steps find their path again, the one that leads toward reaching objectives.
Mercury is close to Venus for almost all of the month. This combination of planets is excellent for socializing, communicating, and getting informed, and promises pleasant and fruitful travels too.
But don’t expect some global flawless harmony. The T-square formed by Jupiter (situated in Virgo), Saturn (in Sagittarius), and Neptune (in Pisces) is still active in the background. It can still bring out stuff that’s buried deep down (fraud, deceit, lies, and so on) and could worsen things regarding large-scale migration and religious dissent. The Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune T-square involves the mutable signs, so it tends to generate instability and change.
Then, the transit of rapid planets through Cancer leads to another T-square, formed with Uranus from Aries and Pluto from Capricorn, active during the first three weeks of July 2016, and very active for the first two. This time it’s a T-square that involves cardinal signs, so it could lead to rapid action, crisis, confusion, and even violence.
But during the whole term one mustn’t forget that anything can be negotiated: we have the Mercury-Venus conjunction on hand, and it would be a shame not to benefit from its benefic energy.
July 2016 also has other significant trump-cards:
- intuition, imagination, creativity, passion, and power of expression – gifted by the pyramid of Water signs (formed by the rapid planets from Cancer with Mars from Scorpio and Neptune from Pisces) during the first three weeks of July;
- energy, ardor, courage, and renewing initiative – gifted by the pyramid of Fire signs (formed by the rapid planets transiting Leo, with Uranus from Aries and Saturn from Sagittarius) during the second part of July 2016, particularly so during the last decan.

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.
