Mercury goes Retrograde June 7th; JUPITER becomes Exalted June 18!

June 3, 2014

The Sunshine Corner has moved to SEDONA, AZ!  This is a very beautiful, and high energy town, and I love being here.   As always, please remember that I am available for long distance readings, to serve your Vedic Astrology needs and questions. My new phone number is 928-284-4060.

Do you want the good news first, or the bad news first? Well let’s get this discussion of MERCURY RETROGRADE out of the way first.

6/07/2014 at 4:53 Pacific time, Mercury will go into retrograde motion, and it will stay in this condition until 7/01/2014 at 5:46 a.m. PDT.

One most helpful factor is that for this entire period, Mercury will be in the sign of GEMINI, which is one of its own signs. This should help keep the intellect still lively and sharp, so perhaps this will not be such an intense Mercury retrograde as some others have been.  Thus, that is a bit of good news for Virgos and Geminis, which are both ruled by Mercury.

6/11 – 6/28/2014 – Mercury will also be combust the Sun (traveling too close to the fiery orb for comfort), so we will still have to mindful of our ability to be tactful during this period, and careful to try and avoid miscommunications.

6/18/2014 – what an auspicious day!  First, at 5:27 a.m. PDT, benefic planet Venus moves into its own sign Taurus where it will be strong and in high dignity there. Taureans benefit from this transit, which lasts until 7/13/2014, when it moves to Gemini at 8:41 a.m. PDT.

Later that same day, at 8:12 p.m. PDT, benefic planet JUPITER enters its sign of Exaltation, the water sign Cancer, where it will remain for slightly over one year.  This will be of great benefit to the Cancer Rising and Moon sign people, as Jupiter brings: good luck and good fortune, wisdom, happiness, good judgment, to name a few of its wonderful qualities.  Who else will benefit?

Scorpios – Jupiter will be crossing your 9th house which is the best house of the chart and represents good fortune itself! The 9th house also signifies higher education, father, spiritual teacher, dharma, remedies, pilgrimage, philosophy and religion. Enjoy this helpful transit.

Pisces and Sagittarius are the two signs ruled by Jupiter. Pisces Rising and Moon sign folks will enjoy this 5th house transit, as it connects them to success, education, children and love affairs.  For the “Sags” of the Vedic Zodiac, well… this is in fact your 8th house (the sign of Cancer) so there will be “changes”, due to this being your house of transformation, vulnerability, knowledge of past and future. You can expect your intuition to increase, but you’ll need to think on your feet when the inevitable changes roll into view. If you go with the flow, they can be positive and beneficial, in the long run.

For other signs, please contact me for how you will be affected, as the list is too long to go through here.

The SUN moves into Gemini for one month on 6/14/2014 at 10:31 p.m. PDT. This is a helpful place for Leos, the sign ruled by the Sun, as it is your house of income and gain. This transit will also energize the Geminis, but be careful of overheating.

We will have BOTH Saturn and Jupiter exalted for some months, until Saturn finally moves into Scorpio on 11/02/2014.  For this first month or so of Jupiter’s exaltation, the 3rd planet in high dignity is Venus, in her own sign.  Thus the summer could shape up to have much positive energy and good times.  We aren’t forgetting that RAHU is still traveling with Saturn until 7/13, and that same day when Rahu backs up into Virgo, Mars will move forward and join Saturn in Libra, and it stays there until 9/04/2014.  Just a reminder, Mars and Saturn don’t like each other! So I am very sympathetic, Librans, but there is still some intense energy for you to deal with until Mars moves away from its enemy Saturn. Still an improvement over having had RAHU (north node of the Moon) there for the past 18 months anyway!

But that is a story for next month (you can look back at past posts of mine to see a more thorough explanation which I have previously gone into, about this 7/13/2014 “changing of the guard.”)

Thank you for any referrals you may send me for  a personal reading, yearly reading, couples compatibility reading or astrocartography reading,or if you would like to book an appointment for yourself, or as a gift for a family member of dear one. Please just call on me, and we can schedule a 90 minutes, taped session. From the Sunshine Corner, as ever, Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer, 928-284-4060, healingevents@yahoo.com.
