Some relief is coming your way from the current pressure you have been feeling. Allow this month to be one where you seek out moments of rest between intense moments of passionately working in the world. You tend to be more sensitive right now and have a greater intuitive ability for understanding the collective. Digest this information for others, then write, speak, or share on it, if that is what you are feeling called to do at this time!

Your routines related to wellness this month are important aspects for taking care of self and others.

June 2020 Monthly Horoscopes - Looking Back

June 2020 Monthly Horoscopes - Looking Back

One of the most prominent aspects of the astrological sky is the Venus retrograde taking place in Gemini this month. This energy pulls us back and almost creates a sense of nostalgia for things since passed. We should be aware of the human mind’s ability to ‘re-write’ our stories and use these energies as a reframing tool to explore in-depth how we view and why we view the past in the way that we do. Once we have gathered this information it becomes easier to understand where we are coming from in this present moment, helping us stay mindful to our ever-present unfolding.

Aries ♈︎

Old friends or relationships can resurface at this time, past relationships or people you considered not a part of your life anymore may come back into your physical or mental spaces. This can be a great time to re-work some aspects of your local community through leadership and similar qualities you naturally possess! Stay mindful of the deeper emotions, stresses, and unforeseen obstacles that might be affecting others right now. Your awareness of these energies allows you to make the best decisions for everyone involved.

Gemstone: Ruby

Taurus ♉︎

Someone may be calling into question your personal value system or ethics. You know who you are and who you want to be, stand strong and true in the knowledge. This is a great month for inviting another person into your personal spaces. Maybe sharing your thoughts, belief system, or spiritual practices with a close friend. The comrade created can feel holistic and healing, it will also provide a sense of validation in uncertain times. 

Gemstone: Amethyst

Gemini ♊︎

Spiritual and soul exploration are available to you at this time, especially in regard to how you relate to others. Love is medicine for you right now; community and being together help you maintain a sense of warmth and presence. A harmonizing of the left and right sides of the brain bring you into perfect center. Meditate on this idea and see how you feel when you focus on one hemisphere of the brain versus the other!

Gemstone: Pyrite

 

Cancer ♋︎

You are not necessarily a fighter, but neither will you take things lying down. You are a very strong zodiac sign that is able to accept and work through rather than suppress how you really feel. This type of authentic living is very strong with you this month. You will feel it in your heart, you will feel it in the way you learn, study, and mentor others. Just by being yourself you are a teacher to others and a spiritual warrior of authenticity.

Gemstone: Jade

 

Leo ♌︎

A craving for socialization is very strong this month! You want to be in the same physical presence as those you love. This may or may not be an option at the moment depending on where you live in the world. Work through this tension by meditating and exercising. Sit with the uncomfortable energy rather than denying it exists. This will help you integrate and gain mindful mastery over your emotions.

Gemstone: Opal

Virgo ♍︎

Passion is growing in your approach to relationships. You are much more vocal this month and openly intense in your partnerships, especially romantic ones. This passion and desire to live the life you want is easily communicated. Taking physical action steps towards your interests, goals, and dreams in life is recommended, especially if they are career related in some way. Good things are happening for you!

Gemstone: Rudraksha

Libra ♎︎

You invite in an expanded sense of consciousness right now and are becoming more and more comfortable with your own personal belief system. When you look at how you organize your world, you may decide there are some changes you want to make. Go with this! Restructuring a worldview can be a great challenge, but can yield incredible results that align with your inner self.

Gemstone: Rhodonite

Scorpio ♏︎

When you decide on something your mind is pretty set, unless you are presented with pretty strong facts to convince you otherwise. This month, you will be presented with some new information that illuminates an area of thinking you haven’t really given your full attention. Meditate on these new ideas, let them wash over you. Try not to overthink but instead absorb on a cellular level what is being shown to you.

Gemstone: Autumn Jasper

Sagittarius ♐︎

A soulful journey is likely beginning at this time. You are questioning things, life, how you are living and might even be motivated to make some important changes. Some inner dissatisfaction can be used to help you discover what you really want to be doing with your life. Consider and visualize being in the moment. If you don’t like circumstances as they, remember you have the power to change them!

Gemstone: Garnet

Capricorn ♑︎

Healthy living and grounding are where your attention will focus this month. You are discovering what does and does not work with your body. Spend as much time as you can grounding and practicing mindfulness. This will help you root into what you actually need to initiate change instead of just accepting things the way they are. Learning about yourself intensifies this month.

Gemstone: Tiger's Eye

Aquarius ♒︎

A close examination of your relationships is likely this month, including commitments and close ties you share with others. You might be feeling restless which gets translated into complicated created projects and interesting activities. A new person is likely to enter your life this month. Be mindful of who resonates with you and why. This is the key to unlocking that connection!

Gemstone: Chrysocolla

Pisces ♓︎

The spirit of the musician is strong with you at this time. As you find your voice, you notice it comes from that deep place within at the center, up from the root and the belly. You have more passion right now and higher expectations for yourself and others. Expect this time to be intensely productive for you! Ensure you balance the increased activity with adequate rest.

Gemstone: African Turquoise

Meet Mala's Astrologer, Emma!

Meet Mala's Astrologer, Emma!

If you're part of our Mala Collective community, you know that at the end of each month we create and send out monthly horoscopes. These horoscopes have become a company ritual that we all look forward to each and every month. 

With that being said, we wanted to let you know that we have an actual Astrologer write and create these horoscopes each month. She is amazing and today we want to share her with you. Get ready to meet the incredible, Emma!

Who is Emma?

Emma is an astrologer that has been studying and practicing astrology for the past 10 years. She attended Portland School of Astrology in 2013 shortly after moving to Portland, Oregon which gave her a solid foundation of astrological training. Emma loves to attend astrology conferences and workshops in order to connect with other astrologers in the community. She would describe her astrological style as casual, earthy, and intuitive.

Emma began freelance writing in 2016, finding her niche on websites related to spirituality, astrology, and the occult. Her horoscopes, articles, and other work can be found across different platforms on applications, blogs, and websites. She also has her own online home at mysticaastrology.com—where she offers readings, articles, and learning.

Emma has a mostly animist worldview and sees herself, others, and nature as an interweaving of divine, spiritual energy. She is inspired by art, soulful music, deep study, looking at the night sky, seeking personal gnosis, beauty, herbalism, hospice work, being in the woods, and all the experiential and sensuous aspects of being human.

We decided to get to know Emma a little more, so here's a short + sweet Q&A we did with her:

How do you practice mindfulness?

Mindfulness is something I need to constantly remind myself to practice, it doesn’t come easily to me. Often times, I feel my mind running far ahead of me and I have to gently bring myself back into the present moment. If I start my day off with a mindfulness meditation, I notice it is much easier to access that energy later in the day when I encounter something that feels off or uncomfortable. I also like to get to places or events early, so I can kind of mindfully tune in with myself, breath, relax, or whatever is needed prior to engaging with others.

What is your daily meditation practice?

I wake up early, around 5 or 6 in the morning every day to make time for my daily spiritual practice. I realize this very quiet space in the morning is when I get the most out of my meditations. My daily practice is a sort of sitting practice. I take long deep breaths until I feel myself as a sort of receiver for the energy around me. I don’t tend to do a lot of visualizations or prompts for myself, but settle into the silence and receptivity; listening to what I consider my soul.

What are your favorite gemstones?

Moldavite is by far my favorite gemstone, it feels like an old friend and I wear a big chunk of it on a ring that I rarely ever take off. I also really enjoy the gentle energies of emerald and selenite, but prefer the slightly more intense feelings I get from azurite, kyanite, and black tourmaline—at least for me this is how it feels!

How do you ground yourself?

Grounding is so, so important to me. I like to lay on the actual ground, in the grass, or outside somewhere. I am a floor dweller for sure. Other things I do to stay centered are carry snacks, water, and a small chunk of black tourmaline in my bag. If needed, I also do a meditation visualizing myself as roots that reach deep into the earth. I have tried a lot of things over the years, but these tend to be the ones that have stayed the most constant for me.

What led you to astrology?

I was always drawn towards the expansive beauty of the night sky. I am also a painter and discovered my passion for painting images of the Sun, Moon, and stars when I was young, always kind of attracted to the cyclical nature of the world and the changing seasons—which the practice of astrology easily roots into. 

As a teenager I really just began structuring my world view around people’s signs, To be honest I became pretty obsessive about it, like so many of us astrology enthusiasts tend to do! It was hard even to interact with people without knowing their sign for a while. I have become much more realistic about the limits of astrology or any system really if we get to narrowly focused in one lane.

My brain took a while to get into the nitty gritty details of astrology. Once I started attending the school in Portland, I kind of “accelerated” my learning and consumed as much information as I could. I didn’t really discover that I wanted to write or that I could even write about astrology until I started my blog in 2015. I practice an earth-based spirituality and have started plans for a book that explores the Earth within the context of astrology.

What is your sign?

I am a Capricorn Sun, Aries Moon, and Taurus Rising.

The Sun in my chart is right between Saturn and Neptune, which could be interpreted as a constant tension to find the center within the dreamy, mystical and the earthy, practical. Which from the outside, describes me pretty accurately!
