June is a month of making room for happiness, fulfillment, prosperity, and all that is good. Before a house can be built, the brush must be cleared away. As we continue to heal, forgive, and release what does not serve us, we open the door to opportunity and improvements in all aspects of our lives. There is so much waiting for us this month, and we are asked to clear away the debris so we can build something solid and stable that will serve us well for years to come. We are reminded this month that things can always improve for us, and we are asked to do what it takes to gain clarity and align our expectations and beliefs with all our hearts desire. We do not experience the desire for something unless it is possible for us to have it. We receive our wishes, hopes, goals, and dreams from the higher aspect of ourselves, and we receive them when we are in a state of readiness for them.

Q1: What are the overall energies of June? Queen of Wands

Fruitfulness, generosity, prosperity… This queen epitomizes abundance and security. She is a masterful artist of manifestation, ushering in her dreams and goals with efficacy, ease, and grace. Her appearance heralds energies of opportunity, happiness, and peace. This week may see us considering new options as we consider the path ahead. When the road forks, we must choose which way to go. We may be encountering happy choice points this week, and may feel guided to follow our creative inspiration when it arrives to us, without questioning or doubting. Trust is key—trusting ourselves, our new ideas, and that following them will bring us joy and fulfillment. We may also be asked to lean into trust that we have what it takes to succeed, and to make adjustments to our beliefs so that they align with our hopes.

Q2: Week 1 energies: King of Cups

The King of Cups holds emotional depth; he is a masculine energy in touch with his emotional, nurturing side. He is giving, caring, a good provider, and someone who wants to be liked and appreciated. He stands by those he cares for and wants to ensure their well-being, as he feels responsible for their emotional landscape to an extent. This may be a person who wants to make everyone happy. If a person, he may be a key figure in this week’s events. He is warm and benevolent, and he is also creative, like the Queen of Wands. The strong aspect of creativity that is coming into play this month may be guidance to get creative in our manifestations, in our emotional approach to relationships and situations, or to recalibrate our emotions in some way. Creative problem-solving is also highlighted this week.

Q3: Week 2 energies: Temperance

This week, we are supported by universal allies who guide us to consider our options before choosing, to be practical, patient, and to make wise decisions. We may feel guided to consider how we can invest in our future and plan for our happiness and success down the road. This week we may find ourselves writing intentions for our future. Where do we want to be in five years? A decade? Twenty years? We can set those intentions now and establish the momentum of energy, like a snowball rolling downhill, which gathers snow (energy) and speed as it travels. Peaceful resolutions, harmonious outcomes, and cooperation are all highlighted now, as those will prove the best and most fruitful path forward. As we grow within and as our hearts expand, we are more readily able to see the highest possible solutions and path forward in any circumstances. The more we open our hearts, the more ego falls away and we are aligned with the truth of who we are—with our divine, highest nature.

Q4: Week 3 energies: The Emperor

The Emperor is a wise leader, one who is just and fair. He has weathered battles and is still standing, successful and with strong, clear boundaries around him. His energy is grounded, stable, and protective. This week may find us grounding into strength and stability, and leaning into our wisdom as well as our practical side. Someone—a leader, perhaps an employer or patriarch—is supporting you and wants to see you succeed. It may be necessary to drop veils this week, as we may have been seeing things through clouded vision or may have misunderstood a situation. Grounding in nature can help us gain clarity and structure. This structure and support may be necessary for the stability of future endeavors. We are building what will grow; we are planting the garden of our future. As we take control of our own future, finding that balance between surrender/receiving and maneuvering the reins so that we stay on course, we are empowered for ourselves and fully grounding in our strength and highest capabilities.

Q5: Week 4 energies: Five of Cups

The Five of Cups asks us to process and clear the pains of the past so we can heal. We are asked to practice forgiveness and to look where we can bring peace to a situation, which may be within us. This week we may be guided to focus on clearing the deadwood from the heart and to look to how we can emotionally nurture ourselves. Something may be ending, reaching its natural conclusion as its purpose is served, but that doesn’t make it any less painful. Surrender feelings of loss, disappointment, betrayal, hopelessness—whether through prayer, ritual, or intention. We can write down what we wish to release on paper and burn it, sending its ashes to the wind with gratitude for the experience and the lessons we have learned. We then create peace within our hearts and make room for what is better, what is meant for us, to arrive. The peace may not come instantaneously, but may progress with time and as we gain clarity and perspective. It is time to begin to rise above and start moving forward.

Q6: Overall guidance for June: Ten of Wands reversed & Nine of Cups

The Ten of Wands reversed stands as much with the Nine of Cups to offer guidance for June as it represents the energies of the last four days of the month. The Ten of Wands reversed asks us to lay down our burdens, to focus there throughout the month, and to practice compassion and forgiveness, for ourselves and for others. We are asked to clear the past, to let go the detritus and all that does not serve so we can make room for the abundance and emotional fulfillment that awaits us, symbolized by the Nine of Cups. There is a world of joy that is ready for us to be ready for it. This month, we can welcome in abundance, new opportunities, and a joy we have never known. This month is powerfully positive. While we are all at different places on our journey, we can always open our hearts to receive the improvement that is available to us at all times. The universal energies are waiting for us to open our hearts so we can flow in all that is better.
