Starwheel Astrology and Healing Magazine June 2021 War of the Titans

This is part 1 of our Starwheel Astrology and Healing magazine for June 2021. To see the detail of all the other parts, go to our 2021 June page on my Starwheel Astrology website: //

June 2021 will be a stressed month, so you need to prepare for that. We each of us not only need to find the ways to avoid overwhelm, but also to find the way that the realisations can make us stronger, better focussed and better loving.

The Transit list is long, and the point is that some of the Transit energies have a totally oppositional nature to other of the Transit energies.

June will be tough, it could push you to your limits, so we each have to manage our lives carefully if we are not to be overwhelmed. We each have to face the danger of the driven, fraught, even fearful energies.

Purification, Rectification, but also Awakening, and also burning of Karmas has to be gone through, though creating Understanding.

In general, there’s a call to simplify your life in June (especially with Saturn Retrograde), to consolidate.

But to honour other energies such as Uranus, conversely you might have to ride two horses and at the same time bring in some needed revolutionary difference. And to honour Pluto you might be compelled to come more into your power.

It’s certainly a month for riding two horses simultaneously!

Also, super-importantly at this fraught time, we each have to be open to divine purpose and inspiration and big transformation, and be prepared to respond to insights and to cultivate vision openings and be prepared to rapidly change plans.

Value your family, especially, in June, with Mars transiting Cancer and receiving aspects from Saturn and Pluto.

Find your right sense of your Self at these times. Find and value your right community at these times. Value the Earth.

Here is the video Pt 1:


And see the Pt. 2. video here.

Indeed, I would say that I feel so helped by the beautiful countryside here in the West of Ireland. And I want to pay tribute to the healing dance work of Claire Louise Knifton, and share knowledge of her work which takes place both here in the West of Ireland, but also internationally online. This is her ‘transcendance dance’, which is so centering to our bodies and to our life purpose. Healing. Strengthening. Calming. Centering and inspired. Dance can make you find and express and live in the ‘true you’ and its connection to the Divine inspiration needs to be given space in these times.

Pay less attention to the stuff out there. ‘Count your Blessings’.

The key to the fraught energies of these times, and their Divine Purpose, actually lies in the chart for Winter Solstice 21.12.2020, which was a Jupiter Saturn conjunction creating a Jupiter-Saturn New Age which lasts twenty years, but this one has very rare characteristics. Se my video and broad outline presentation blog and also deeper astrological blog with charts all about this New Age which started then.

Certainly, conspiracy theory ranting destabilises, and indeed societies could fall into tumult and even violence rather than undergoing the positive change that is needed now in these times. With the Pluto Return of the USA coming to its first exact hit April 2023, change has to be handled responsibly, with shadow material being dealt with positively, rather than democracy breaking down.

Certainly, there are a number of active ‘war hotpots’ globally at this time.

Just to share what I, personally, am experiencing at these times, I am certainly getting the feeling that someone is looking after me at this time. The Light is getting through, as big challenges suddenly occur. But I feel it is turning out that the big challenges are actually turning out to be pushing me in the right direction.

Let me start by telling you about how the present fraught energies are manifesting for me. And I hope this will spur you to focus on how the present energies are manifesting for you. Then read through the list of June planet energies set out below, to take stock of how they will manifest in your birth chart and in your life. :
So, first of all, here’s my sharing of some of what’s been happening for me at the ‘event level’, and then at the ‘planet energies’ level, at this weird, pressured time. And as you read this, focus also on understanding what’s happening to you:

Someone created a situation that created fraught worry, yet it turned that opened a door to earn needed money.

Someone reneged on an agreement, but actually that created an easier situation for us to manage.

I received sudden very unusual very unexpected insights that gave me ultra-good big-scale good insights into a breakthrough revamping and rescaling of the novel I am currently writing: The Morrigan and the Dagda.

I also feel I am coming into my proper power now (Pluto is transiting square my natal Sun and smashing blocks everywhere including mine).
Good planet energies are coming through – but it’s unexpected, knife-edge, nail-biting, fear is there and pressure.

Uranus is transiting square Saturn bringing his revolution to smash Saturn’s blocks – yet Saturn is demanding needed consolidation at this time, and I am finding I have to tie up loose ends and consolidate.
Fear laden, driven Rahu is aspecting Saturn.
Neptune continues to provide insights and energies. I find I have been doing wonderful vision work every week, and working with a colleague am doing breakthrough shamanic healings.

Venus has been in a most unusual state (see below), but this has been very empowering for me.

An important energy is that both Jupiter and Saturn are sending an aspect to Vedic Libra now, and both Maggie and I have our Suns there.

In fact, Maggie has had to work flat-out, but advantage came through to her at this time from her current Rahu 3rd-level dasha: Jupiter-Saturn-Rahu, where her Rahu is in the 6th House of health, healing and right living, and she experienced massive breakthrough on top of her many years as a hypnotherapist.

The eclipse of 26.5.21 in her 2nd house of ‘value’ and ‘voice’ and ‘money’ lead to her launching into additional work in on-line group hypnosis.

Maggie has Amala Yoga in her Vedic birth chart, because her natal Jupiter is in Capricorn in the 10th House from Moon, and she moved into Jupiter-Saturn-Jupiter Dasha on May 21st, and had loads of breakthroughs and openings in her work. And of course, Capricorn is massively activated by Saturn transiting there, and Uranus and Rahu sending aspects to it now at this time.

All this shows the analytic vast richness that Vedic astrology can provide us with.

So, that’s how it is being for us.

How has it been for you?

I’m hoping that reading how we have been managing. Just now, is useful food for thought.

And so, in that spirit, I offer this, my Astrology energies summary for June 2021.

Read it carefully – and the big task is to see how and understand how these massive energies will manifest in your individual chart – and in your life!

So, here is the planet energies summary for June 2021:


Eclipse 10.6.2021:

2nd Eclipse of the year on 10th June 2021

This is a New Moon Eclipse in Vedic Taurus- at 25 degrees of Taurus.

It’s in Mrigashira Nakshatra which is ruled by Mars.

People with planets in Vedic Taurus and Scorpio will feel this most.

The closer your planets are to 25 deg Vedic Taurus the bigger will be the effects of this eclipse in your life.

Eclipse effects are felt for 6 mths to 1 yr, and they create a stagnant pool of energy in the heavens which later transits by malefic planets can activate for up to two and a half years.

Eclipses are about the undamming of fraught dammed up energies.

Aspects to this eclipse:
This eclipse is exactly conjunct retrograde Mercury!
It’s square Neptune!

So, this could have all the usual Mercury Retrograde challenges, but also it could feel very confusing at this time, but watch out for needed good visions to come to the rescue out of the confusion. Life can be like that.

(That’s Sun and Moon at 19 Western Tropical zodiac Gemini).

NOTE: It is important to keep life very simple and get enough rest during the period between the eclipse of 26th May and this eclipse of 10th June – but be open to the inspiration that could be pivotal in your life with Ketu in Scorpio and Neptune in PurvaBhadra.

Uranus is square Saturn

Chiron is square Venus.

Neptune is Sun, Moon and Mercury!!!
Ketu is conjunct Antares = belligerent and pugnacious, risk of war. Anger. And explosion when the Mars-Saturn opposition is taken into account with Uranus T-square that opposition!!! War.

Rahu aspecting Saturn = Fear, insecurity and driven energies. Overload.

This eclipse conjuncts Donald Trump’s natal Sun conjunct Rahu at 27 deg Taurus (which opposes his Moon conjunct Ketu at 27 deg Scorpio). So, this will result in a huge power urge in Donald Trump.

Full Moon 24.6.21:

The Moon is at 9 Vedic Sagittarius in Mula Nakshatra

Sun is at 9 Gemini in Ardra Nakshatra
(That’s Moon at 3 western Capricorn and Sun at 3 western Cancer).

Pluto is opposition Venus
Mars (In Cancer, Pushyami Nakshatra) is opposition Saturn (Sravana Nakshatra, Capricorn

Uranus is T-square Saturn opposition Mars!

Ketu and Ascendant are in Anuradha Nakshatra in Vedic Scorpio.

There’s Retrograde effect from four planets:

Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all Retrograde.

Neptune is stationing, and therefore super super powerful in his effects, preparing to turn retrograde in two days on June 26th.

The Nakshatras involved with this Full Moon both have violent potential: Ardra and Mula. Frustration, anger and imperiousness.

Fated, as Ardra is ruled by Rahu and Mula is ruled by Ketu.

Sun starts June at 17 deg Vedic Taurus conjunct Rahu.

Sun enters Gemini on 15th June to end the month of June at 15 deg Gemini.

Sun thus starts June in Rohini Nakshatra ruled by the Moon, entering Mrigashira Nakshatra ruled by Mars on 8th June.
Sun enters Ardra Nakshatra ruled by Rahu on 22nd June.

(That’s Sun transiting from 10 western Gemini to 8 western Cancer in June 2021).

Sun conjunct Rahu on June 1st can bring out of control power urges and ambitions whose drive creates dark areas.

Sun is conjunct Mercury Retrograde on June 7th.

Sun is square Neptune for many days, centering on 14th June. The downside of this is that we could be fooled by a Pied Piper. We will need to check out what is real. But positively, this will be very visionary and inspirational.

June 21st is the Summer Solstice, at 04.31 hrs here in Ireland.

Sun is at 6 deg Vedic Gemini in Mrigashira Nakshatra.

Moon is at 15 deg Libra opposition Uranus in Aries, T-square Saturn in Capricorn

Venus in Cancer is opposition Pluto in Capricorn.

Saturn is opposition Mars in Cancer.

Mercury Retrogrades from May 30th to June 22nd.

There will be all the usual postage and IT challenges, and how bad these will be will depend on the Mercury issues of your own birth chart.

But an increasing twist to the Mercury Retrograde tale in these times is of course the Cyber-hacking. Ireland is in a terrible mess, as its HSE records have all been hacked. The hackers will now begin selling off everybody’s patient data. Hospital appointments and administration is in a terrible mess.

Mercury retrogrades from the first degree of Vedic Gemini entering back into Vedic Taurus on June 3rd, then turning Direct from June 22nd at 22 deg Taurus.

(That’s Mercury transiting from 24 to 18 deg Western Gemini in June 2021).

Mercury Retrograde squares Neptune on June 5th!

Venus energies are interesting, unusual and very important to grasp.

It was a horrible time for some, when Venus was transiting conjunct Rahu North Node, exact on May 18th, where Rahu gave a driven  and even dark energy to Venus.

But Venus continues strong though, as the planet is ‘out of bounds’ until June 23rd.  out of bounds means that the planet is out of the bounds of the latitude degree of the Sun (more than 23 degrees North or South of the Equator), thus the energy of the planet is that of the rebel or unpredictable, spontaneous, with no boundaries. Could be romantic, artistic, extravagant or hedonistic.

Mercury, Mars, Venus, and the Moon were all out of bounds in May, and this was exceptional and the matrix for very unusual things to happen.  Now Venus has joined the out of bounds energies, and until June 2nd, there’s a record number of 3 out of bounds planets.

From these various unusual excesses of Venus energy, various big important lessons could come through for people with a strong Venus in their birth chart (for example, in a Venus-ruled Nakshatra, or in Taurus or Libra).

Jupiter trines Venus, exact June 3rd. this is fortunate and lucky if you have planets around 7 deg Gemini. I have natal Uranus at 7 Gemini!!!

Venus transits from 4 deg Vedic Gemini on 1st June, entering Vedic Cancer on 22nd June, and ending June at 10 deg Vedic Cancer.
Venus starts June in Mrigashira Nakshatra (ruled by Mars), entering Ardra Nakshatra (ruled by Rahu) on 3rd June, entering Punarvasu Nakshatra (ruled by Jupiter on 14th June, entering Pushyami Nakshatra (ruled by Saturn) on 25th June.

Around the time of June 12th, Venus is the apex planet of a Yod, with the base of the Yod being Ketu sextile Saturn, with Ketu and Saturn both in inconjunct aspects to Venus.

This will add to the strain that Venus is under. So, we need to turn this energy into a strengthening of our expression of and our connection to our Venus.

And do note that Venus is square Chiron in the heavens at this time!!!

Mars enters Vedic Cancer from 2nd June.

Mars transits from 29 Vedic Gemini, entering Vedic Cancer on 2nd June and ending June at 17 Cancer.

(That’s 23 Cancer to 11 deg Leo in Western tropical Zodiac).

Mars is debilitated in Cancer, and expresses his energy in a more muddled and hurt, angry, frustrated, emotional way.

The Saturn opposition to Mars will make the frustration and anger much worse.

The fact that Uranus squares both Saturn in Capricorn and Mars in Cancer will be revolutionary and with risk of war.

Cancer is the 8th House of the chart of the USA. There will be bad times in USA mounting steadily to July – and with the underlying Pluto Return of the USA also at this time.

This continues until July 20th when Mars crosses the Gandanta and enters Vedic Leo.

This will not be an easy month for Cancer natives, with Mars transiting Cancer and with Pluto and Saturn opposite, in Capricorn, casting an aspect to Cancer. Families should be careful to preserve harmony.

There could be explosive events.

Pluto is opposition Mars on June 5th!!!

So, Mars starts June in Punarvasu Nakshatra, entering Pushyami on 8th June, and entering Ashlesha on 29th June.

Mercury, Mars and Venus are all in Vedic Gemini at the start of June.

But Mars enters Cancer on June 2nd.

And Mercury retrogrades into Taurus on June 3rd.

Jupiter is Retrograde from June 20th to October 18th.

Jupiter spends June at 7 to 8 degrees Aquarius. Jupiter starts June at 7 Aquarius, turning retrograde at 8 Aquarius on 20th June and ending June still retrograde at 7 Aquarius.

(That’s 1 to 2 deg Western Aquarius).

Jupiter is in Shatabishak Nakshatra in June.

Jupiter casts an aspect on Libra at this time.

Jupiter is not in strong dignity at this time (dignity = 0 points, whereas Saturn’s dignity = 3 points).

Note that the time of the Jupiter Station around 20th June at 8 deg Aquarius, brings fortune and luck to you if you have a planet up to 3 deg orb either side of that degree, or if you have a planet in that degree range that Jupiter casts an aspect to: either in Leo (opposite) or in Gemini or Libra.

When Jupiter is Retrograde, we have to make a special effort to maintain our connection to blessing, insight and sense of purpose.

At the same time we will be called to examine our beliefs, and review whether some of the spiritual systems we have bought into are really correct for us still.

Recession: But note that when Jupiter returns to Vedic Capricorn from 14.9.21. to  when Jupiter re-enters Aquarius on 20.11.21, this should tip the world economies into Recession. When Jupiter transited Vedic Capricorn last, in 2008, 12 years ago, there was the collapse of the Celtic Tiger Bubble, and Recession worldwide. Jupiter so Fallen in Saturn’s sign of Capricorn brings recession.

In Ireland, in 2008, the unemployment went to 15% and the Celtic Tiger Mick Mansions still stand half built all around us.

In December 2020, with Coronavirus (and Jupiter transiting Capricorn, then), it was 19.4% unemployed in Ireland.

Jupiter transits into Shatabhishak Nakshatra on May 21st,  and stays there until late July, returning to Shatabishak on Jan. 1st after its retrograde from June 20-Oct. 17th, 2021. Jupiter thus amplifies the healing and metaphysical energies of Shatabishak at this time, operating within the rather weird special sometime enclosed world that characterises Shatabishak. This could be a beneficial energy, because at its highest, Shatabishak is all about developing healer energies.

Saturn spends June at 19 to 18 degrees Capricorn.

Saturn Retrograde all the month of June, being Retrograde from May 23rd to October 17th.

Saturn transits from 19 to 18 deg Vedic Capricorn in June 2021

(That’s 13 and 12 deg Western Aquarius).

Saturn is in Sravana Nakshatra in June.

Saturn casts an aspect on Libra at this time.

Saturn and Jupiter:
1. Saturn and Jupiter are both casting an aspect on Vedic Libra. This should be a time of fortune and consolidation for those with major planets in Vedic Libra.

Of course, Uranus is also casting an opposition aspect on Libra from 18 Aries, spawning revolutionary change there. Tension and friction: see below.

Uranus casting a square aspect to Saturn in Vedic Capricorn: People with planets in Vedic Aries and Capricorn will feel this most.

Uranus at 18 deg Aries, Saturn at 19 deg Capricorn.

Uranus is the energy of Revolution, and he is pitting himself against Saturn, which is the planet of restrictions, structures, blocks.

The tension, friction and irritation may feel awful.

But Uranus is the planet of revolutionary answers, so examine your consciousness, feelings and events carefully, and identify what difference you MUST bring in .

The last time Uranus was transiting here in Vedic Aries saw the rise to power of Adolf Hitler and the bringing in of World War 2.

Uranus is in Bharani Nakshatra in June.

(That’s 12 to 13 Taurus, Western)

Uranus is square Saturn in Capricorn exact on June 15th.

Uranus opposes Mars in the chart of President Biden, and at this time Uranus in the heavens is squaring Saturn in Capricorn and Mars in Cancer. A Grand Cross is therefore created focussed on President Biden’s Mars.

Neptune transits from 28 to 29 deg Vedic Aquarius in June 2021, turning Retrograde on 25th June at 29 Vedic Aquarius.
Neptune is in PurvaBhadra Nakshatra in June.
that’s 22 to 23 degrees western Pisces.

Pluto is Retrograde at 2 deg Capricorn all month.

That’s 26 deg western Capricorn.

Pluto is in UttaraAshadha Nakshatra in June.

Ever since Pluto’s entry into Vedic Capricorn on 31.12.2020, Pluto has been smashing against the structures and constraints of Saturn in our life and in our society.

And Pluto is opposition Mars on June 5th!!!

(As Uranus is square Saturn!!!)

Pluto will be calling you to go into your power if this transit creates a Pluto aspect to one of your natal planets (Pluto is square my Sun!)

Chiron is at 18 to 19 deg Vedic Pisces.

Chiron is in Revati Nakshatra.
That’s 12 to 13 deg western Aries

Rahu North Node

Rahu transits from 16 to 15 deg Taurus in June.

This is Rahu in Rohini Nakshatra.
Rahu casts an aspect to Retrograde Saturn in Capricorn. This is an energy of fear and great tension and an extremely driven nature – but confusion.

Ketu South Node

Ketu transits from 16 to 15 degrees Taurus in June.

This is Ketu transiting in Jyestha Nakshatra.
