Eleanor Kibrick – Astrologer


There’s LOTS of cosmic energies affecting us right now. The Sun, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Neptune are all in Water signs – a cycle where intuition and creativity and emotional expressions are on the front burner. There is harmony between these celestial bodies – all being in the same element – creating an atmosphere of nurturing – taking steps to care for our emotional needs, as well as our personal spaces, and of our beleaguered and beloved Planet Earth. Those of you who are Water Signs – Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces – or have significant planets in Water – are “in your element!” Here are some of the details.

SUMMER SOLSTICE – June 21, 2013

Today is the longest day of the year. The Summer Solstice is celebrated by Indigenous peoples all over the world. This is the time for activity and change and awakening to embrace this healing light. It’s time to celebrate the Earth and all living things upon it. In Canada, National Aboriginal Day is celebrated on the Solstice, acknowledging and respecting and reconciling with the First Peoples.

FULL MOON in CAPRICORN – Sunday, June 23, 2013

During the Summer Solstice, the Sun will move into the Sign of Cancer and on June 23, the Moon in Capricorn will be exactly opposite the Sun – time of the Full Moon. This also happens to be the largest Full Moon of 2013. We are moving into a gentler time as the Sun in Cancer will bring in a focus for nurturing, enjoying home and moving more into heart-centered energy. During the Full Moon situations may arise that bring issues to a crisis point. There may be emotional eruptions as challenges may come to a head. It’s good to remember to take a few deep breaths before responding to another, rather that reacting quickly and say things we may regret later.


Jupiter spends one year in each sign of the Zodiac and on June 27, it will move into the Sign of Cancer and be there until July 17, 2014. Jupiter has been in the mental Sign of Gemini this past year and has stimulated much communication, spreading of ideas, and an expansion of global awareness. In Cancer, Jupiter will emphasize feeling rather than mental activities. There will be more involvement with women’s issues, with environmental concerns, with community, children, expression of emotions and so on.

MERCURY in CANCER– June 1 – August 9, 2013

Mercury, the Planet of communication, made a big shift on June 1, moving from the mental energy of Gemini into the emotional energy of Cancer. We’re now apt to think more with our right intuitive brains rather than the more rational left side. It’s important to remember to not take things personally if others disagree with our views or belief systems. We are spiritual Being living a human life. We are far greater than our opinions or belief systems!

Mercury will go Retrograde between June 16 and July 20, and then will begin “moving forward” again and transition into the sign of Leo on August 9. We’re already in that energy cycle as many can feel the retrograde energy several days before and after its cycle. It’s important to back up our computer files, double-check on things like driving directions, plane schedules etc.

VENUS in CANCER: June 4 – June 28, 2013

Venus in Cancer brings in receptive feminine energy – and a desire for security. We may find ourselves wanting to nurture others and take the time to socialize, relax with friends, have a meal together, etc. It’s also a good time to begin or continue a creative project as Venus in Cancer is in harmony with Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces – creating a Grand Trine (triangle) in water. This combination of creative energies is wonderful for dreaming, visioning and with Saturn in the mix, it’s also an excellent time to get things done. Venus will be in Cancer until June 28, when it will enter the fire sign of Leo – and the energy will shift again.

SATURN in SCORPIO: October 6, 2012 to September 19, 2015.

For those of us born with Planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, etc.) in the Fixed Signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, these can be trying times where we’re challenged at the core of our very Being – needing to do our personal work to overcome obstacles and grow and change.

Saturn in Scorpio until January 2015, is calling on us to dig deeper into our emotional foundations and explore relationships with ourselves and with others. We can come out of this cycle much stronger and steadier.

Uranus in Aries Squaring Pluto in Capricorn – 7 cycles through to March 31, 2015.

This square continues a time of breakdown of systems – personal and global – that no longer work for us. False foundations are revealed in political, social and economic patterns. When this 90 degree angle is exact – the pressure peaks. Uranus and Pluto both move very slowly. Their effects are felt for weeks before and after the exact square. As things break apart – light enters and new solutions can and are being explored. The next exact square will occur on November 1, 2013.

Schedule of Exact Squares:
June 24, 2012
September 19, 2012
May 20, 2013
November 1, 2013
