Sun Conjunct Mercury in Gemini
The June 5th superior conjunction between the Gemini Sun and Mercury makes an incompatible inconjunct to Jupiter Rx in Scorpio. In the Sun/Mercury cycle, this is a "Full Moon" aspect - it’s a result connected to the last Sun/Mercury conjunction (on April 1st when Mercury was Rx in Aries). This conjunction in Gemini suggests an illumination of key details or choices, but the tense aspect to Jupiter suggests discord between these details versus the enthusiastic exposure of deep truths. There needs to be an adjustment between depth and flexibility, illumination and secrets.
As Sun/Mercury go on to square Neptune from June 6th to 7th, the challenge will be to find the missing info, identify valid choices (some of them will be false) and be aware of deceit. This could be someone else’s lies or your own airbrushing of the truth.
From June 8th to 11th, the Sun and Mercury will makes inconjuncts to Pluto Rx in Capricorn, adding in suspicions and hints of covert power plays.

Venus Opposite Pluto
Also on June 5th, Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto Rx in Capricorn. The most sensitive cravings (for love, security, food or comfort) will be intensified and challenged. Pluto presses the finger on what you feel you must have while triggering anxieties that it will be taken away. This peak/result/ending can be compulsive and overwhelmingly intense, so it’s helpful to realize that oppositions always involve projection. Consider if the object of your desire actually reflects what you have within you.
Mars Conjunct the South Node
On June 8th, Mars in Aquarius makes the first of three conjunctions to the South Node.

At the same time, it will be crucial that you keep an eye out for missing details - keep your story straight and be aware that others might try to manipulate.
