Vedic Astrology Report for June 2020


vedic astrology May 2015

By Debra Infante

A rare eclipse season begins in June, with three eclipses occurring in a row, two eclipses in June, and one eclipse in early July, indicating a period of revelation and great change. Mercury goes retrograde in Gemini on June 17, a time to be observant with all communications. Venus goes direct in Taurus on June 24, as we commit to more positive relationships. At the end of the month, Jupiter, and Pluto, both retrograde, will conjunct amplifying issues with finances, the economy, and politics.

On June 5, 2020, we experience a lunar eclipse at 21 degrees Scorpio in the nakshatra of Jyeshtha at 12:12 PM Arizona time (MST) which is the same as PDT. The Moon during this eclipse will be debilitated in Scorpio, affecting us on a more intimate level. This eclipse creates highly charged emotions, heightened sensitivity, along with subconscious patterns surfacing to be healed. Try to not respond too quickly to situations, but take time to stabilize the mind with meditation, yoga, or prayer.  Jyeshtha nakshtra means “the eldest” and is also called the “chief star,” indicating its connection to leadership. The deity associated with this nakshatra is Indra, the King of the Gods. On a deeper level, Jyeshtha represents listening to our own inner authority or voice for guidance. This lunar eclipse prompts us to tap into our “inner hero” to rise above problems with confidence and courage. The shadow of this eclipse could involve the misuse of power or getting even. Instead, let us generate greater empathy for others, and take action to protect those in great need in society.

The second eclipse occurs on June 20, 2020, a solar eclipse at 6 degrees Gemini in the nakshatra of Mrigashira at 11:42 PM Arizona time (MST), which is PDT. Solar eclipses tend to have a more global effect than lunar ones, and sometimes the energies can last several months. Remember eclipses are points of change, and can present opportunities for growth, transformation, and rebirth. This solar eclipse occurs in Mrigashira nakshatra, also called the “searching star” and we are motivated to find greater fulfillment in our lives. This is a changeable and impulsive nakshatra, and so we can feel more sensitive and restless during this eclipse. Be careful making decisions too quickly that you may later regret. Use patience and discernment. This nakshatra is also connected to healing ability along with the love of nature, so this eclipse could bring insight regarding the need to honor and respect the natural world in order for humanity to heal.

Finally we experience the third eclipse, a lunar one, on July 4, 2020 at 19 degrees Sagittarius in the nakshatra of Purva Ashadha at 9:44 PM Arizona time, which is PDT. This eclipse is in the sign of Sagittarius, so on the positive side, the focus is on fairness, freedom, social justice and humanitarianism. On the shadow side, we may experience bluntness, , arguments, and an inability to listen to advice. The nakshatra of Purva Ashadha connected to this eclipse reveals the need for heightened discrimination, and that ethical and moral choices are extremely important now.

In general, for eclipses to have major impact on us personally, they need to occur within a few degrees of your Ascendant, Moon, or Sun.  In Vedic astrology, eclipses are days for spiritual initiation, so this is a good time to meditate, do your sadhana, perform mantras, or go on retreat.

Mercury, planet of the information, business, and communications, goes retrograde on June 17 to July 12, 2020 in its own sign of Gemini.  During Mercury retrograde we can over think, so be extra mindful and clear in all your communications. This is a good time to finish up old business, and review or revise future projects. But do double-check travel plans and back up computers. It is usually not advised to sign documents or contracts while Mercury is retrograde.  Writing, reading, or journaling are positive activities during Mercury retrograde. Meditation and pranayama are favorable remedies.

Venus, planet of love and relationship goes direct June 24, 2020, having been retrograde since May 12. When Venus is retrograde, this is a positive time to accept your true worth and merit, letting go of any feelings of not being good enough. Don’t look for happiness outside of yourself, but create happiness within. Venus retrograde can also increase our need for creativity or beauty in our life. We re-evaluate our love relationships and work to heal those connections that are authentic and viable; otherwise we may let them go. Venus is a planet of diplomacy, so when retrograde it might be not so easy to come to agreement.  When Venus goes direct, we are able to move forward in our relationships with greater ease and enjoyment, as we want to experience deeper and more honest connections.

Jupiter, planet of spirituality and prosperity, will be exactly conjunct the outer planet Pluto, planet of intensity and transformation, at 0 degrees Capricorn from June 22 to June 28, 2020, just before both planets retrograde back into the sign of Sagittarius. These two planets will conjunct again on June 30, 2020 at 29 degrees Sagittarius. Jupiter may amplify Pluto’s need for deep change and control. We can experience power struggles or challenges connected to the economy or with our own personal values. It’s best to direct this powerful energy into healthy outlets, such as self-improvement modalities or spiritual aspirations.
