Today’s I Ching Hexagram for June 15th is 40: Deliverance

40: Deliverance

Hexagram 40

General Meaning: After a thunderstorm, or any period of extreme tension, a period of new clarity and fresh opportunity follows. The storm has the effect of clearing the air and suddenly reducing atmospheric tension. Deliverance is at hand. In the wake of a storm on land, deliverance appears in the form of new color and life, which bursts forth in all the fields and flowers. In the wake of a storm at sea, deliverance takes the form of land itself.

In the field of human relations, the rain of forgiveness washes the human landscape clean after a period of conflict and enmity. Great clarity of purpose and renewed vigor can follow the healing of old wounds. But care must be taken not to re-open such wounds by moving too quickly. In the same way, it is important to return to normalcy before moving ahead with new plans after periods of stress.

Following the resolution of a difficult situation, your first priority, should be to return to normal conditions as quickly as possible. Breathe a sigh of relief, but don’t relax completely. It would be a mistake to re-awaken the sleeping dogs of the immediate past before the new situation has crystallized. Look ahead. Attend to any residual matters that need resolution, and do so as quickly as possible. Make a clean sweep of the past, move deliberately and the future will bring good fortune

Today’s Tarot Card for June 15th is The Hierophant

The Hierophant

This Tarot Deck: Esoterico

General Meaning: Traditionally known as the Hierophant, this card refers to a Master and the learning of practical lessons from the study of Natural Law. This energy of this card points to some agent or resource that can reveal the secrets of life, the cycles of the moon and tides, the links between human beings and the heavens.

Because monasteries were the only places a person could learn to read and write in the middle ages, a Hierophant was one to whom a student would petition for entry. He was the one to set the curriculum for the neophyte’s course of study.

Often pictured with the right hand raised in blessing, the Hierophant is linked with the ancient lineage of Melchezidek, initiator of the Hebrew priestly tradition, the one who passes on the teachings. All shamans of any tradition draw upon this archetype.


First used to repel insects, soon it was obvious that the aroma reduced depression and anxiety. Menopausal women especially notice its balancing effect. In a lotion, geranium oil has been used to reduce facial neuralgia and “traveling” rheumatic pain.

Daily Horoscopes for June 15th

A Full Moon Eclipse at 4:13 pm EDT in open-minded Sagittarius could encourage dialogue between individuals with different philosophical, political and religious points of view. Its opposition to clever Mercury in adaptable Gemini may even enable us to see how multiple perspectives can coexist without the need to force resolution. Meanwhile, Mercury’s fateful septile to stodgy Saturn indicates that suppression may still be lurking in the shadows.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You believe that you can justify almost anything you want to do today; however, your logic might not seem all that rational to someone else. Even if your motives are admirable, your impulsive behavior may not go over well with others. Be careful of your overconfidence leading you to do something you will later regret. Keep in mind that it’s wiser to heed the cautionary advice that you’re given now, even if it temporarily puts a crimp in your style.



Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You might have wonderful ideas today, but could lack a clear plan that helps you reach your goals. Although your footing can be shaky now, your sense of urgency motivates you to reach for the stars anyway. Unfortunately, this may not be the best time to start a project, yet you can’t wait for some magical moment to arrive when everything is perfect. If you encounter delays along the way, remember that they are not valid reasons to give up hope and walk away.



Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Your quick wit often helps you smooth over sketchy situations, but you may not be satisfied with this evasive strategy now. You’re not interested in hiding your feelings any longer, but facing serious underlying issues isn’t as much fun as delivering the next clever comeback. Don’t worry about stepping into unfamiliar territory; your friends and family will jump in to help when they realize that you are attempting to keep it real.



Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Today’s inspirational Full Moon Eclipse rattles your 6th House of Details, turning your attention to all the loose ends that are still left untied. But being aware of what you need to do is not the same thing as doing it. Don’t try to complete everything now; there is no need to apologize for what remains temporarily unfinished. Handling your chores one at a time will help you to concentrate your efforts and accomplish as much as possible.



Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Although you may not want to admit it, your thoughts are a bit scattered today, challenging you to follow any one idea to its logical conclusion. Thankfully, the fiery Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse activates your 5th House of Self-Expression, helping to free you from your own self-limiting beliefs. Just don’t get so carried away with all of the amazing possibilities that you turn a practical plan into an unrealistic dream.



Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You could get caught up in a struggle to balance quantity with quality today as the Full Moon Eclipse in boundless Sagittarius whets your appetite for adventure. Unfortunately, your newfound desires might be at odds with your usual preference to narrow your field of perception so you can focus your energy and be more efficient. Consider this eclipse as an opportunity to practice your powers of discrimination. Wrapping up your work early allows you to do something exciting later in the day.



Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

This is an information-rich day with the Lunar Eclipse shaking up your 3rd House of Communication. You could even become caught up in a debate without knowing which side is right. Unfortunately, you may have a strong opinion that isn’t well thought out. Ironically, withdrawing from the discussion and seeking a quiet place may be your smartest strategy now. Contemplating your own thoughts is healthier than impulsively reacting to someone else’s ideas.



Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

It’s easy to overestimate your cash flow with the optimistic Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse illuminating your 2nd House of Money today. On the other hand, you might be fully aware of your financial situation, yet still decide to take a dream vacation anyway. Either way, you could end up discouraged if your fiscal reality doesn’t measure up to your wishes. Nevertheless, fretting is a waste of time and energy; save your nickels and dimes, instead.



Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

It’s not easy to contain your dreams as today’s Full Moon Eclipse occurs in your exuberant sign. But rather than going off on your own, you’re likely to tag along with a friend or partner when the Moon opposes chatty Mercury in your 7th House of Companions. Unfortunately, you can’t rely on others for advice now because they will probably encourage your scheme, even if it’s not very practical. Wait until the Moon enters realistic Capricorn tomorrow before embarking on your next big adventure.



Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You typically handle your responsibilities early in the day so you can relax later on. But you might feel so overwhelmed by the sheer number of items on your agenda now that you don’t know where to begin. Don’t despair; instead of starting on your list right away, take time to review your priorities. Once you decide what you’re going to do first, break down the job into manageable tasks. Successful small steps assure the steadiest progress.



Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The extravagant Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse in your social 11th house tempts you to say yes to every invitation you receive today. Although interacting with others sounds like fun, you may already be overcommitted. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to enjoy yourself if you’re supposed to be somewhere else. Don’t wait until your schedule is out of control; eliminate some of the extraneous activities before you’re in over your head. Ironically, you will have more fun if you have less to do.


Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Today’s indulgent Sagittarius Full Moon activates your 10th House of Career, tempting you to set unrealistic professional goals. But it quickly becomes obvious that you cannot live up to your own exaggerated expectations. Ultimately, this Lunar Eclipse can reveal your excesses and require you to restrain your enthusiasm. Gradually apply the brakes to maintain control of your energy before things go awry.
