First of all, I'm not sure what you mean by "clear" a chapter 7 bankruptcy.   Assuming you mean "discharge your debts", you cannot file and receive your discharge in the same month, so your facts are impossible.

If you filed a Chapter 7 case in June 2005, and ultimately received a discharge, you can file a Chapter 13 case now, or another Chapter 7 case after June of 2013 (assuming you are otherwise eligible for either of those chapters).
