June 16th’sGemini New Moon will conjunct Mars (aggression, initiative) triggering competition and abrupt conversations/ideas. This Moon will square Chiron (Wounded Healer) in Pisces and Black Moon Lilith (BML) in Virgo. BML is the energy of the angry outsider; the uncomfortable, disruptive power that comes from being rejected. This is raw, female energy (the anti-mother or the dangerous woman) but BML can be felt by anyone who experiences sexual politics or rejection because of their refusal to submit. When Mars, Chiron and Black Moon Lilith challenge each other, there is potential for hurtful truths, uncomfortable revelations and victimization. This is also a tremendously powerful New Moon, and those who are not afraid to stand up for themselves (or for another) can make good use of it. But BML can trigger rage, and the desire for vengeance. There is nothing detached about this energy (especially when Chiron is involved). Events will feel extremely personal; the best defence is Gemini's logic and intellect.
June 21st brings us to the Summer Solstice, as the Sun enters Cancer and lights the fire of the longest day. Solar energy will be at its peak, as will the power to celebrate an area 0f your life that you’ve been nurturing. A few hours before the Sun enters Cancer, it will inconjunct Saturn Rx in Scorpio. This pinch will be a reminder of a limit or commitment that needs to be revisited (or reworked). Before you celebrate, check-your foundations and boundaries. Are they still intact? Are you still committed?
The New Moon activates your communication sector, squaring Chiron (in your hidden sector) and BML (in your sector of routine). Watch for arguments, hurtful statements or abrupt announcements that are connected to hidden sensitivities. What you can’t see will cause difficulties, so try addressing the elephant in the room. Dynamics involving an unconventional or unaccepted way of performing routines or service-based duties may come into play. Harassment in the workplace could also be an issue.
The Sun in your communication sector inconjuncts Saturn Rx (in your sector of shared resources) drawing attention to a hidden/ignored restriction involving finances or intimacy. As the Sun enters your domestic sector and kicks off the Solstice, know that there’s more work to be done on the uncomfortable areas. Home finances and intimacy in a domestic partnership may be hi-lighted. Giving these problems another shot can help solidify your home base.
- New beginnings: addressing secrets, discussions with siblings, uncomfortable discussions involving workplace sexual dynamics/harassment, arguing about one thing when the real topic is beneath the surface
- Use the Solstice to celebrate: family bonds, a domestic partnership, home business, where you go to feel safe
The New Moon and Mars in your sector of personal resources square Chiron (in your social sector) and BML (in your sector of self-expression). New ideas/information may clash with what others think, or what they feel you’re entitled to. Jealousy and competition can spur you to pursue a financial or emotional objective. This can up your ambition, and there may be dividends, but use caution if you’re dealing with a romantic attraction. BML can stir up significant chemistry mixed with anger (and the fear of rejection).
The Sun in your sector of personal resources inconjuncts Saturn Rx (in your relationship sector) continuing the theme of limits/fears in your love life.

Focus on what’s happening right now, which includes the potential to make a significant statement, reach out to someone, or shine a light on crucial information.

- Use the Solstice to celebrate: your words/ideas, sibling relationships
The New Moon and Mars in your sign squares Chiron (in your career sector) and BML (in your domestic sector). You may be ambitious, assertive or ready to fight. Developments at work and/or home can push your buttons, reminding you of how you don’t fit in, where you’ve been repressed, or who has the power. Family history can stir up some painful reminders. This can be a powerful jumping-off point for a new career goal, but use caution, as your professional image may take a hit if you react without thinking.
The Sun in your sign inconjuncts Saturn Rx (in your sector of routine) prodding you with a reminder to take care of your physical health, or attend to an obligation that you’ve let slide.

A background/still developing potential can leave you feeling ultra sensitive and bit frightened. The unknown can be overwhelming. BML can bring forbidden or “dangerous” words into play, as someone speaks the truth that no one else wants to hear. Too, you may become aware of the tension between what you want to say versus the fear of what those words may reveal.
The Sun in your hidden sector inconjuncts Saturn Rx (in your sector of self-expression) revisiting some awkward restrictions around an attraction, creative project or issue involving children/pregnancy. But as the Sun enters your sign and heralds the Solstice, you should see a breakthrough, or at least a light at the end of the tunnel. Saturn Rx means extra effort (one last tim) to manifest the thing that’s precious to you. If it’s not for you, this will be a reminder that you need to shut and lock the door behind you. Either way, the Solstice is your power time - the moment when the spotlight is on you and you can move forward knowing that you’ve got maximum solar power ushering you into the next chapter.

A social statement or turning point can quickly accelerate into an issue of self-worth. Standing up for who you are/ your personal values will be essential, and you may feel challenged or marginalized, simply for following your instincts. What you’re willing to do for financial or emotional security may also come into play.

There may be fears of rejection on a personal and professional level, and others may project their fears and anger onto you. Sexual politics and professional reputation may be issues. Know that BML’s anger can bite the hand that feeds her, if you blindly strike out (or, alternatively, allow yourself to be victimized).
