Julie Simmons’ Sun Sign Predictions – June, July, August 2021

OVERVIEW

June: A month to be playful, patient and practical. We are reminded that although we are responsible for this world the best response is to be present to what is even as it changes right before our eyes. Magic is afoot – how that magic shows itself depends on us.
New Moon: June 10. Full Moon: June 24

July: We are, each and every one of us, the hero of our own journey. July inspires us to acknowledge that today’s heroes feed the hungry and respect the limits and wisdoms of the material world, even as they push against what seems possible. The best motivation is love, for ourselves, each other and this precious planet that is our home.
New Moon: July 9. Full Moon: July 23

August: Shape-shifting and chaotic, this month brings out mixed messages that continue to trouble the minds of humans. The rules of the game are changing even as we play. Forget the game. Focus on doing what has to get done, as best you can with a big heart, a willing spirit and whatever else you have in your bag of tricks.
New Moon: August 8. Full Moon: August 22

Aries

MAR. 20 to APR. 19  

June: There are times when nothing makes sense. What else can you make if not sense? Let your New Moon intention be to make something other than sense out of the noise swirling around you. At the Full Moon let go your aspirations and observe the people and situations that depend on you and your inclination to show up – or not.

July: Does joy depend on others? Should it? Are you really as singular as they say? Let joy be about personal expression as well as social interaction. Your intention at the New Moon anchors your uniqueness in aid of a fuller expression of joy and creativity which blossoms at the Full Moon.

August: The struggle between ideal and real goes on. Use it to frame your intentions at the New Moon for greater expression of your authentic self even as you adapt that to your changing priorities. The Full Moon reminds you that life is a journey. The joy must be in the ride because no one really wants to get to the end!

Taurus

APR. 20 to MAY 20   

June: Our desires change through time, just as we do. There is no stopping this. Let your New Moon intention be an exploration of your wants, desires and values now. No expectations. Only observations. At the Full Moon seek teachings, teachers or an inner muse to learn more about desire in a changed world.

July: Aspire to learn at this New Moon. In times as unpredictable as these ‘interesting times’ we inhabit it helps to see Planet Earth as a school house. You may not be vacationing the way you used to at the Full Moon but there is lots to do and people to do it with. Be creative and willing to play.

August: Stay-cationing at the New Moon is not a problem if your intention is to inhabit a more beautiful world. So be it! You find yourself standing at a threshold or cusp at the Full Moon. Which door might you open to explore a more creative, spontaneous, and pleasurable life? Do it!

Gemini

MAY 21 to JUNE 21  

June: Memory is a sacred storehouse of great riches. Allow remembrances to surface at the New Moon and feed your earnest intention to be the truest version of yourself possible by the Full Moon the past has flown. Time to add new memories to the storehouse. Focus on pleasures which might sustain you once winter comes again.

July: All sorts of frustrations knock upon your door in early July. Set an intention at the New Moon to focus your attention on the ones that matter most. You can do this. The Full Moon brings lighter, more sociable energies your way. Play your favorite games with your favorite players. Laughter is always the best medicine.

August: Get out of your own way at the New Moon. Inspiration informs your learning teaching and writing. There is more to heaven and earth than your conscious self knows. Shocking though it may be when the light of awareness dawns, it is best to open to change. It is the only constant. S/he changes everything s/he touches.

Cancer

JUNE 21 to JULY 21   

June: Interesting times require that we investigate difficult issues. The New Moon asks you to focus on topics of greatest interest. If focus is out of reach, simply observing the river of thoughts flowing through your mind will teach you plenty. By the Full Moon your life and the people you relate to come into sharper focus.

July: Dream your way into this month and by the New Moon you can set a real world intention to do the best you can with what you’ve got and who you are. The Full Moon is time to pick and choose priorities. Let this be joyful. Waste not want not as the saying goes.

August: The notion of waste and want is the focus for your New Moon intentions. Concentrate on what matters most, even as you are aware of the unpredictability of this world. The Full Moon is a precipice on the mountain of affordability. Journey along each of the consequences that might come from your choices. Aim for the middle way.

Leo

JULY 22 to AUG. 22   

June: The New Moon follows a time of mental agitation, pulling you away from creativity. A resolution to unplug and discover the living word surrounding you would be a great help. The Full Moon exposes the inner world of your imagination. Make something, anything from these images

July: A good intention for the New Moon is to nourish your inner, private self in wholesome ways. In doing this you prepare the way so that by the Full Moon you are at the top of your game with a full and generous heart for all you encounter.

August: You cannot control the wide world any more than you can control your own microcosmic version of it. Yet you can express yourself, even in these unprecedented times. Affirm this at the New Moon. The Full Moon shows how much people matter. Your connections to others are real, true and life sustaining.

Virgo

AUG. 23 to SEPT. 22  

June: This is your planet. You live here. Don’t succumb to despair. Set your mind to focus on the real and the true which you experience when brushing your teeth, preparing a meal, or just living your life. When the Full Moon arrives be ready to dance beneath the diamond sky. Celebrate life just because you can. Your way.

July: Affirm your concern and connection to your people at the New Moon, not by placing them above or apart from others but because they are the ones whom you choose to feed and be fed by. At the Full Moon Look up. Prepare yourself for incredibly busy times. You know how to be busy but can you be busy, focused and calm?

August:  We have come to a critical mass of change from climate change to social unrest. Don’t waste time at the New Moon with pointing and blaming. Just do the best you can. It’s always good enough. Later, at the Full Moon you see how much it matters that you did what you could and how much more there is still to do. Be a blessing.

Libra

SEPT. 23 to OCT. 22   

June: Better to be a seeker than a pundit at the New Moon. Let your intention be to open to all that you don’t know, to the mystery of learning new things even if they are old wisdoms. By the Full Moon you may have met some new folks and you may find people looking to you for the kind of wisdom that comes from experience.

July: Make an intention at the New Moon to care for your people, whoever they may be. Frustrations abound this month as we see clearly what could be done to improve situations but find obstacles along the way. At the Full Moon remember this old adage: If it’s in the way, it is the way.

August: The New Moon presents you with some irrationalities of those you call friend. You, too share this trait. To be human is to have blind spots. Stay human. By the Full Moon this humbling wisdom allows for genuine connection with your most deeply loved, complex, mysterious, fun-loving folks. It’s some kind of party!

Scorpio

OCT. 23 to NOV. 21  

June: One of life’s greatest magic tricks teaches us that every ending is a new beginning. You don’t need to believe (in). It just is. This could be the underlying inspiration for your New Moon intention. At the Full Moon celebrate the journey you have undertaken in this life. Be guided by wisdom not confirmation bias.

July: In summer our journeying takes us more into the natural world which we know to be in crisis. Your honest perception of this combined with your New Moon intention to do what you can to nourish and protect is as good as it gets. By the Full Moon stand tall in awareness of what you can and can’t do. Your best is always good enough.

August: Strong and intent as you are, you cannot control the chaos unfolding around you. At the New Moon focus your will on the tasks at hand with a loving heart. This will get you where you need to go. By the Full Moon you look beyond the petty judgments of others into the soul of the world. This moment of clarity could inspire you till year’s end.

Sagittarius

NOV. 22 to DEC. 21   

June: The notion of an ideal partner who totally ‘gets’ you might be unrealistic. This New Moon asks you to listen exactly the way you would like to be heard or surrender to confusion and disappointment. By the Full Moon it’s easier to enjoy the bounty of someone you love and trust who ‘gets’ you enough and appreciates how you listened.

July: As you make your intention for the New Moon let imagination run with your favorite possibilities regarding relationships. It’s like planting a seed. The horizon calls at the Full Moon, promising adventure and possibility. If you can’t get in a vehicle and go somewhere, open your mind/heart to learning something. Skies the limit!

August: Following your star isn’t as easy as it once was. Times change. Here at the center of radical shift your intention for this the New Moon combines both the shift and the star. You were made to shoot you arrow toward the Sun. The Full moon requires you to speak truth without judgment or inflation. Use your words. Aim to hit the mark.

Capricorn

DEC. 22 to JAN. 19  

June: Time is a relative value. We move through it and it moves through us. Get metaphysical at the New Moon. Aim to learn something new rather than claim mastery over it. There are people in your life who reflect you as if they were mirrors. Don’t blame the mirror at the Full moon for what you see in it.

July: You’re very sensitive to whether you are getting what you deserve at this New Moon. Go for a walk and revel in the way Mother Nature loves us all equally. Might we do the same? Sharing from a sense of abundance whatever your resources is a celebration of life: Always a good choice for the Full Moon. Have a little fun, why don’t you?

August: Open yourself to this: We are manifestations of life. It comes through us not from us. It’s a mystery to be honored at the New Moon. By the Full Moon you might want to celebrate this life force with those you love for no reason, the eccentric misfits: the special ones. Love, like fear often is not reasonable.

Aquarius

JAN. 20 to FEB. 18   

June: So many things we thought we knew about love seem different. Actually love is constant, we have changed. What seed of love might you plant at the New Moon? By the Full Moon you are challenged in your daily life: On the job or possibly health and well-being. Act on behalf of yourself even as you consider the greater good.

July: The end does not justify the means. You have always known this. How can you live your life, moment to moment and nourish this truth? Let this be your intention at the New Moon. Full Moons are meant be celebrations. Dance in the street, for the sheer fun of it and as an expression of your full participation in this crazy human life.

August: Let others wend their way even madness and disruption. You can’t change them, only yourself. An intention at the New Moon to shift the story you tell yourself about others opens the way to the right kind of change. The Full Moon offers genuine wisdom teachings which may need to be sorted out from those that foster blame and judgment.

Pisces

FEB. 19 to MAR. 20  

June: The New Moon begs the question of where you come from, what roots you to life. Don’t overthink it. Better to stand right where you are and know it as if for the first time, as your home. The full moon reveals so much in the way of possibilities. It’s not anything that is possible, it’s something, something real and specific.

July: If you’re the spongey kind of Pisces who feels the suffering of all this New Moon suggests you channel these feelings through some kind of self-expression. Do what you love. The Full Moon encourages you to listen to the world around you, not just the words but the entire conversation: The voices of wind, fire, water and earth.

August: Chaos can be inner or outer, or both. It’s a part of life. It’s about change. This New Moon asks you to allow for a riot of changes, to stand at the center and breathe. By the full Moon you feel the shift coming through relationship with all you encounter. Practice believing in the equality of all living beings. May we be happy, safe, and at ease.
