Weekly Astrology Forecast – June 27 – July 3, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon – There are no major aspects on July 1, but July 2 makes up for it with a stormy square between Mars and Pluto. This aspect brings with it a tendency to go off on the deep end, to explode or implode when things don’t go our way. We’re angry because there are situations that are not in our control. We’re infuriated that there’s something in the way of what we want. Mars kicks out and Pluto smacks down twice as hard. The problem is that Mars won’t give up, so we end up fighting a losing battle. But it is just this trait that can also help us if we turn it to our favour. We need to admit where we don’t have control, take action where we can, look to what can be released instead of fighting over, pick our battles carefully. *******************************************...

The Astrology of Kate Bush and Stranger Things

When I say I am a massive fan of Kate Bush, I mean I am a MASSIVE fan of Kate Bush. Some people remember exactly where they were when Kennedy was shot or Elvis died. I remember exactly the moment I first heard Kate. I was nine years old, sat on the backseat of my Dad’s old car. I was squinting my eyes at the clouds in the distance because it would make them look like mountains and make me feel like I was going somewhere majestic and interesting. And then all of a sudden, Wuthering Heights came on the radio. Bam – shot by Cupid, right there! My heart did a little skip. I stopped squinting, dropped my gaze, let the music wash into me. It did something…indescribable. As an adult now with a command of words, I can look back and say, in that moment, Kate spoke to a part of me that had been igno...

New Moon in Cancer June 2022

The New Moon in Cancer occurs at 03:52 (BST) on June 29, 2022 at 07CAN22. The Moon and Sun are conjunct Black Moon Lilith, square Jupiter and trine Vesta. The Sabian symbol of this lunation is A Group Of Rabbits Dressed In Human Clothes, Walk As If On Parade. Vulnerability arises with this symbol. It’s as if the rabbits are on constant alert that they are going to be found out. They may be dressed up as humans and walk as if on parade, but they are still fluffy bunny rabbits! It makes me think about imposter syndrome. It’s an insidious condition. It’s the feeling that in some way, you’re a fraud and it doesn’t matter what you do, what you’ve learned, what you’ve done or how much experience you have. Somehow, someone, somewhere, is one day going to ...

Weekly Astrology Forecast June 20 – 26, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon – The Sun then leaves Gemini and enters Cancer on June 21, signalling a seasonal shift as we arrive at summer solstice. This is the beginning of astronomical summer in the northern hemisphere and winter in the southern hemisphere. Here in the North, the Sun reaches its maximum declination, the Oak King is at his greatest power, the Sun God is brilliant and bountiful. Our star brings us light and life, sending rays of gold down to tickle the Goddess beneath. In turn she swells into greens and blossoms, giving off the heady, heavy scents of summer blossom which attracts bees and other insects to pollinate. During summer, the trees are heavy in leaf and fruits grow rapidly. At summer solstice, we celebrate the abundance of nature and honour our star. I have made a v...

Full Moon in Sagittarius June 2022

The Full Moon occurs at 12:51 (BST) on June 14, 2022, at 23°Sa25′. Edited excerpt from my Patreon Full Moon Global Astro-Tarot reading :- The Sabian symbol of this lunation is ‘A Blue Bird Perched On the Gate of a Cottage’. It’s a beautiful symbol with an animated, cartoon-like quality to it. Here we have the idea of perfect happiness – the white picket fence, all is well in the world. And I guess that’s what we’re all searching for in happy-go-lucky Sagittarius. The gate in the symbol represents a gateway between here and there, where you are and where you want to be. The fact that the bird is perched on the gate tells us that we need to look to the bird itself for clues as to how we can gain access to the beautiful vision we aspire to create. I think of bird...

Weekly Astrology Forecast – June 13 – 19, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon – June 17 sees us begin to revisit the square between Saturn and Uranus. Whilst this aspect will not be exact again, the two will draw closer and closer together until at the beginning of October, they will be in the same degree (18 degrees of each sign). We could anticipate then that the issues they relate to will be most prominent around that time. Saturn square Uranus has been an ongoing tussle between freedom and restriction, rules and liberty, young and old, old and new, convention versus alternatives. The tension has been palpable and now again it feels like we are redrawing the map, breaking walls, changing barriers, reshaping, upgrading. And whilst Saturn may well feel like we are being held back at times, in truth, he’s just insisting on slow progress. B...

Fraud Alert: I’ve been impersonated on Instagram

I’m writing to you all as some of our readers have been scammed by fraudulent Instagram accounts pretending to be me. Please be careful of this and online scammers in general. I have put together the below to detail this particular Instagram fraud scheme, with some more general information to help you stay safe. Fraud alert: I’ve been impersonated on Instagram In light of the upcoming Full Moon in Sagittarius square Neptune, I’d like to talk about a sensitive topic: online scammers.  It’s not only Astro Butterfly’s Instagram account that has been impersonated. Almost all astrologers have impersonators, i.e. fake copycat accounts on Instagram. If you received DMs from an Astro Butterfly account, please ignore, do not engage, and do not send private information or money. I will NEVER se...

Weekly Astrology Forecast June 6 – 12, 2022

IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ If you are on Instagram, please remember that I will NEVER message you asking if you want a reading, or ask you about your ‘zodiac sign’, ask for donations or financial help or ask for help getting into my account – and neither will any other professional reader on IG. Professional readers will not solicit for readings. Always triple check that the account you are following is the correct one. A lot of people, particularly youngsters, are getting caught out by these scammers so we need to keep spreading the message far and wide so that eventually everyone is aware of these scams. Impersonation accounts are rife. Sadly, last week, FOUR impersonation accounts of my profile were set up (yes, Mercury retrograde and stationing in my 10th house!) and one of my Insta...

The Astrology Of June 2022

June 2022 is a “make it happen” (Taurus) “fast” (Gemini) month. If at the end of last month Mars and Jupiter have “lit a fire” inside us, in June we’re asked to do something about it.  Let’s take a look at the most important transits of the month:  June 3rd, 2022 – Mercury Goes Direct On June 3rd, 2022, Mercury goes direct at 26° Taurus. YES! Mercury direct will bring back our focus, mental clarity, and sense of direction. In the past 3 weeks, Mercury retrograde gave us the opportunity to address those areas of our life that were up for review. Now that we’ve done the work, we’re ready to move on with a new sense of purpose. Full steam ahead!  June 5th, 2022 – Saturn Goes Retrograde On June 5th, 2022 Saturn goes retrograde, drawing our attention to themes of responsibilit...
