But if you open your mind to new ways of doing, you will eventually find a workaround trine Neptune. The future is for those who dare. Neptune is the planet that dissolves everything it touches. So at first, Neptune will dissolve your beliefs so you can find a higher meaning, a higher order, a higher purpose for your life. Jupiter square Neptune will ultimately challenge those beliefs that are outdated and dogmatic.
This is the 2nd Jupiter-Neptune square the 1st one was in January, and the 3rd and last one will be in September. This is a turning point.
You will reflect on what happened in the last months, and you will make a decision. The outcome of this decision will come in September. The downside of this exuberant Full Moon can be exaggeration and impulsivity. Mars and Mercury opposite Pluto can make us lose our heads and act from our most primal self. This in combination with a Full Moon can make us become fanatical about our beliefs, especially if we are prone to be impulsive or forceful with our opinions.
If on the contrary, you find it difficult to voice your beliefs and act from your integrity, this Full Moon will help you get in touch with what really matters, with those things that are really important to you, so that you can learn how to survive and thrive in any crisis.
Mercury is the planet of the mind and Mars is the planet of action. When the two planets meet in conjunction, our mind is aligned with our actions.

No matter what, take action. June is the month of action. This is one of the most important transits of because it engages two slow-moving planets.
Neptune and Saturn are very different. Neptune is all about spirituality, the law of attraction, dreams and living in other realms. On the other hand, Saturn is the planet of maturity, responsibility, hard work and discipline. Neptune without Saturn gets stuck in a fantasy world and accomplishes nothing, while Saturn without Neptune has nothing to aspire to, and gets depressed and cynical. The sextile is a supportive aspect but requires a bit of work. How many times have you missed great opportunities in your life?
With Saturn sextile Neptune, you want to pay attention to where these opportunities may lay, and do that extra bit of work to take advantage of them. You feel that nothing can defeat you. The only villain out there is you. When a slow-moving planet like Neptune changes direction, we feel its energy more intensely. When Neptune changes direction, we can feel a deep longing to re-connect with the Source. How do we do that? By fantasizing, daydreaming, falling in love, or by escaping reality with drugs and alcohol.
You can make the best out of Neptune stationary if you connect with your imagination. Get a pen and paper and write. Or get a pen and paper and draw something. Let your imagination guide you. Neptune will help you find connections that are otherwise inaccessible to your objective, Mercurial mind. On June 21st, Sun enters Cancer. Happy birthday to all Cancers out there!

The more we understand where we come from, the better we know ourselves. This is a very optimistic, flamboyant transit so make sure you take advantage of it and do something that brings you pleasure and enjoyment. Venus square Neptune can confuse you at first. Venus is about what you want and value.
Neptune can make you doubt that. You may question your relationship. You may question your values, or how you feel about a particular situation. Instead of trying to numb down these feelings, listen to what they are really trying to tell you. What it really means is that you are now ready to make some adjustments, that will help your relationship grow even further.
