June 2014 Tarotscope

thesunJune, the first month of that sweet, but all too short season, Summer, marks the halfway point in the year. Three important things to remember about this month; 1- Play and relax more, (it is Summer, after all!), 2- On June 7th, our old friend, Mercury, the god of communication, will once again go retrograde for three weeks. Since Mercury rules communication, transportation and contracts, when it’s retrograde, all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can occur.  If you can, hold off on buying (or leasing) any big ticket items.  It’s also a good idea to triple check any and all plans you make.  This is an excellent time for introspection and research, as those things that are usually hidden from view, show themselves more easily during a Mercury Retrograde period.  Wait until Mercury goes direct before making any big decisions and 3- the Summer Solstice on June 21st, marks the beginning of a very fruitful time. Make wishes and attend to them like precious seeds in an orchard. The resulting bountiful harvest in the Fall will validate the time and energy you put into bringing your heart’s desire to fruition.

Your message this month comes in the form of a quote or affirmation.  Write or print it out, put it on your bathroom mirror, refrigerator and/or the dashboard of your car.  Be conscious of and contemplate its message and meaning to you as you enter into this very prolific season.
