June with Jupiter is a cosmic canoodling on the divine dance floor. The softening dance from head to heart unfolds with Jupiter turning retrograde in the sign of Pisces and Aquarius. From heart to head and back again, Jupiter’s movement through the skies is a benevolent unity dance, supporting integration of our ideals of justice and community, with the spiritual qualities of compassion and kindness.
Jupiter dallying through Pisces and Aquarius has an important message for us at this time – we can only birth a new world if we learn to love humanity. We need a sense of kind humour regarding our tendency as a species towards utterly ridiculous behaviour, whilst noting our capacity for kindness, selflessness, courage and goodwill. To work towards the overcoming of ‘species self-hatred’ is a redemptive act on personal and collective levels.
It restores our self-esteem as humans and without self-esteem even well-intentioned acts tend to become self-destructive. We have to love and respect ourselves enough to believe that if we let ourselves off the hook of condemnation and judgement, we will be motivated to help and heal each other by something far greater (we might call that love). To break the cycles of harm, hate needs to evolve into compassion, and a soul-cackle inducing sense of humour is one of our most powerful allies in this task. Jupiter’s journey through this particular process will not be complete until January 2022, so we have some time to explore these teachings deeply.
In support of integration, Mercury goes direct on June 22, with the optimistic Sabian symbol of “the head of a robust youth changes into that of a mature thinker”. Humanity needs to evolve from defending opinion at any cost to the surrender into wisdom, from manipulation to facilitation of grace. May all hearts take this journey in a timely fashion for the greater good.
Divine closure to the month is the full moon in Capricorn, falling on June 24 – 25 June (depending on your time zone). Another soul-healing lunation honoured in Western Occultism, this is the spiritual festival of Guru Purnima, or the Full Moon of the Masters. This is a spiritual-radiance bearing lunation of the consciousness of the Masters.
Who are these Masters? They are the genuine gurus and teachers, the 10,000 Buddhas and the Goddess of 10,000 names, the Enlightened Ones initiated into the Universal Ageless Wisdom that transcends doctrine and boundaries of the human mind, and unites all deeply within the sacred chamber of the heart. (For our community, this celebration is of an actual spiritual event that takes place via the full moon. Full Moon in Capricorn this year is earlier than the usual July date, falling on June 25, although we understand and also take delight in the celebrations that are marked on set days in the calendar too.)
The blessing of this full moon will manifest according to your heart space. Give your heart the honour of some time to become centred, contemplative and spiritually receptive. The heart knows how to do this, you don’t have to overthink it.
A teaching to support this precious lunation is that your ancestral lines are not limited to your biology this lifetime. They are not limited to this dimension. Through literally star-dusted journeys your soul has found your way to this planet, an advanced spiritual school of Earth, to take accelerated enlightenment training. The gift of a body is coveted by many beings and the opportunities for spiritual growth in this realm are considered to be of the highest available. Being human is a precious gift worth honouring, and yet it is not all of who or what you are.
Don’t cut yourself off from the enlightened sources that speak to your heart, even if you were not born into a particular tradition. I know witches that love Jesus and Hindus that adore Mother Mary, and everything and anything in between and more. If the stars speak to you, open to their light. Be present to that which awakens the innermost truth of your heart. The spirit is wild and free and your ancestral lineages of divinity can flow freely into a heart that is able to recognise and receive divine love in its unending forms, without fear. Be open and allow the dispensation of grace from the Master or Masters that speak to your soul, to touch and awaken your heart. May all hearts receive the transmissions of light needed to awaken with joy and peace to manifest the greatest beauty of collective visioning possible at this time on Earth and beyond.
