The Sun moved into the constellation of Orion, the warrior of the winter sky, on June 8th and stays there until June 21st  (Taurus 23.20-Gemini 6.40). Its symbol is the deer. Mrigashira is formed by three faint stars at the head of the constellation of Orion. The constellation is very spiritual and promotes moksha and spiritual liberation that inspires people to study religion and philosophy. The Shakti of Mrigashira is the “power to give fulfillment” so a good time to rub your genie’s lamp and ask for a boon.   If your Sun, Moon, or rising sign is in this constellation, it gives you a deep yearning for something greater in your life. The deity of the constellation is Soma, connected to the Moon and the life and vital subtle forces that are created to manifest the physiological components of enlightenment.   Mars is fairly happy in the constellation of Purvabhadrapada (Aquarius 20-Cancer 3.20) until June 16th and so the connection is good but turns a bit weaker as Mars gets into weakness in the 4th pada (Pisces 0-3.20) until June 23rd.

Problematically it also moves toward conjunction with Rahu into June 20th. The Sun has the most difficult journey in the constellation of Ardra (Gemini 6.40-20) June 22 – July 6th as it is channeling Rahu’s energy and this constellation can bring storms and deep suffering and teardrops in the quest to shed old pattern. Use this transit for transformation.  Problems with tornados and hurricanes can increase with too many planets in Ardra and we have Sun and then Mercury after June 23rd.  Anger will get stirred up and we do not need more of that.

With the conjunction of Rahu on June 20th in the true node system, and having a strong influence June 17-June 23rd, and also with the June 21st solar eclipse, there can be an identity crisis for Leos. The Rahu/Sun combination can create strong power, success, and social achievement but this can lead to falls from power and status also if you strive too high. Scandal is possible and intrigue with foreigners is very possible. Even when there is a success, Rahu is never satisfied and there is often inner dissatisfaction. The key is to be happy with where you are.

The best part of the transit is a wave of relief as the Sun gets more connected to Jupiter July 6-20th. Jupiter’s energy in the constellation of Purnavasu (Gemini 20-Cancer 3.20), is a positive place where there is a deep connection with one’s soul purpose through spiritual initiation and this can come up.  Still, with Jupiter weak and closely conjunct Pluto into June 3oth, the Sun’s transit here can be complicated and lead to false optimism or intense forcing of beliefs on others.

Leo rising will most feel this transit but in Gemini, it is an eleventh house transit and will bring gains after struggle and fights due to Rahu. Cancer rising will have the most trouble with this transit as it 12 houses from home and the Sun will disappear from the horizon and fail to shine. For now, enjoy the quest for Truth and something higher in this very pure constellation and my favorite of all, Orion, the spiritual warrior until June 21st.
