The main theme for June is communication and creativity. Of course, this month heralds the sign of Gemini, which rules over the Planet of expression, Mercury, but we also have a lot of watery influences within the cosmos.
The first day of June kicks off with a trine within Venus in Cancer and Jupiter in Scorpio, and another trine to Neptune in Pisces the next day on June 2nd. This is perfect for those who are looking to connect a little deeper within your relationships, or spiritual explorations. So, make plans for the first weekend in June that involve something intimate with others, or within yourself.
Things just keep getting better as well when the Gemini Sun trines the Aquarius Moon on June 3rd, making the first Monday of the month rather peaceful and laidback.
However, as the first week moves forward, we can expect deep thought-provoking ideas and a lot to think about in terms of communication and moving things around towards your preferred direction thanks to the Sun ruling Gemini which focuses on communication and. This weeks takes off with an easygoing conjunction of Aquarius that moves into a square then turns into a more intense opposition between Water and Earth.
June 6th may prove to be a rather foggy day, or a battle of what you know, and what you feel, this is not a good day to make rushed decisions or major changes – if you must, think things through and carefully weigh all your options – especially in concerns of your finances.
Mercury moves into nurturing and sensitive Cancer on June 12th. When Cancer rules over Mercury, it influences us to be a bit more self-conscious on what others think and feel about us. While this can be a bit immobilizing, it does gift us the added sixth sense when it comes to picking up things within our environment and social circle. We start to see with more than just our eyes and are more adaptive with our relationships where we can get along with just about anyone, because we are more susceptible to the energy around us. Feelings are more easily expressed as well as creative thinking.
The very next day, on June 13th we are graced with both a Gemini Super New Moon, and Venus entering the heart-centered sign of Leo. The New Moon represents taking the initiative in starting something new and setting intentions, and the focus is pushed on our relationships, socially and intimate. When the moon is in Gemini, the energy becomes more erratic but also grants us the opportunity to really say what is on our minds. Sometimes this energy can work against us when it brings about a sense of inconsistent and manipulative behaviors. While the cosmos with the two planetary shits into different signs bring this to a more emotional level, we can count on this Moon to deliver new conclusions or insights regarding relationships that may have major red flags we had avoided in addressing before.
When Venus enters Leo, love is definitely in the air and romance is favored. However, this energy isn’t always so delightful, and with having Venus turning Retrograde in July, this can be a self-indulgent and pleasure-seeking time. As Leo is an extremely loyal sign, there is no stopping outside attention that can create jealousy and possessive behavior. This is also a time of creativity and capturing the attention of any audience you are entertaining.
A few days later, on June 15th, we have a Mercury-Saturn opposition which places the need to censor ourselves, putting a dim light on the expressive energy experienced within the first few weeks of June.
Father’s Day falls on June 17th with a Leo Moon, making it the perfect energy to celebrate Dad as Leo is a masculine sign and governs the art of celebrating those we admire and love.
On June 18th, the very next day, Neptune goes Retrograde until November 24th in the sign of Pisces. Neptune is the planet of spirituality, psychic ability, and dreams. When it is direct, it helps aid in all that magic. However, when it turns retrograde it brings the harshness of reality and having to face the truths which we may have been avoiding, or oblivious of. Being in Pisces, a sign which doesn’t do well with rude awakenings or too much reality, can bring about a painful sense in facing truths, and seeing the truth as ugly. These next 6 months will be focused on relationships, just as the Gemini Super New Moon had prepared us for, as well as our financial struggles. It’s not all bad though! As this creates an opportune time to bring those dreams, or psychic realizations, into manifestation and our reality. We can finally stop dreaming, and start doing.
The sun enters Cancer on the Summer Solstice, which is June 21st. We also have a Venus-Mars opposition which puts a frontal focus on our relationships and value system. When the Sun enters Cancer, it is a wonderful time to share the love and to let others know how much you care. Cancer also rules the family, making it a valuable time to trace our genealogy, and with all of these retrogrades as well as the upcoming Capricorn Full Moon just days away, this would be a great month to cleanse ancestral karma.
On June 23rd we are graced with an intense power struggle with a Mercury-Pluto opposition, which sets the tone for Mars Retrograde which takes place on June 26th in the sign of Aquarius and ends on August 27th in the sign of Capricorn. Mars is the planet of action, passion, and aggression. When this energy-focused planet goes retrograde is makes us slow down, to consider our actions and the cause of our aggression or what may trigger our anger.
Mars Retrograde is empowered by the Capricorn Full Moon on June 28th, which is paired with a Sun-Saturn opposition making karmic debts or bills due – to witness of the full circle of our actions and evolve with an understanding of how to promote change, or to receive the rewards of our honorable deeds. Mercury also enters Leo on that same day, making communications more bold, dramatic, and passionate. We will be having another Mercury Retrograde in July, and so this energy will remain with us until the end of summer.

It seems like all of these retrogrades, and the Capricorn Full Moon, are going to be greatly affecting you this month, Aries. You are not one to back down from a challenge, or to allow life to push you around, but, it seems that it goes much deeper, as if fate were intervening.
June calls for a sudden change of plans, or having something stripped from you, or even your environment, and as out of the blue it may appear, it is a direct consequence from your actions in the past. There may be a tendency to dwell on the circumstances you are faced with, so it is important that you fix your gaze on your next move, as this will help you align your focus from being pessimistic, to more proactive.
The Swords energy of Tarot is also prominent in the month of June, Aries, making this a month of deep-thought and consideration in formulating a plan which to resolve long-standing issues, and to realign your focus. Plus, not only do you have your ruling planet, Mars going retrograde this month, but you also have an opposing Capricorn Full Moon to empower it. As adaptable as you may be, June asks that you slow down and consider how you plan to bounce back.

Oh, Taurus, you are not one to go with the flow, and are stubborn as a bull when fate calls for change. However, June is going to allow destiny to rock your world in pushing a change on you which leaves no choice but to move outside of your comfort zone. As immovable as you are, when disappointed, you will not stay long to deal with any nonsense.
Just as Aries, you have a lot of Swords energy for this month, but with added stress and frustration because sometimes it takes a rude awakening or a heart ache to get you to choose to make any changes. The 3 of Swords is often the most feared of Tarot because it speaks of a change in course due to disappointment and occasionally sudden loss of an attachment or commitment.
Your value system may be in question this month, concerning both your relationships and finances. What you may not like what fate weaves into your life this month, but June promises that whatever changes it brings to you, they will be what is best suited for you.

Happy Birthday Gemini! 🎈🎂🎁
While there are some factors this month which might make June a bit chaotic, or too fast paced for even a sign as malleable as you, the important thing you must remember is to remain grounded amongst it all. The influence from the element of Air seems to take center stage for many of your sibling signs, Gemini, and of course as ruler of that element, it treats you no different. However, as others are faced with changes and important choices, you are told to stand your ground and not to budge from the pressure.
You are right where you need to be, and whatever obstacles you face this month, are meant to test your strength. It’s easy to get caught up in the drama, or to allow a messy situation to influence overpowering stress and frustration, but, adopting a mind over matter mentality will save the day. Remember, you are abundant in all that you need, and with a focus on the positive, you can overpower the commotion or disorder that others bring into your life.
The Gemini Super New Moon may affect you heavily in terms of bringing sudden shifts and information your way – so keep your feet planted firmly on the ground, but also remain observant and receptive.

As your birthday month approaches, June asks you: Cancer, what do you really want?
Action is required from you, but it takes an honest assessment of where your honor and value system rests. No pressure, though 😉. While this question seems quite significant, it will not be a difficult one to consider.
This seems to be a smoother flowing month for you, which is full of much positivity, but when faced with circumstances that lead you to these inquiries, you will have to choose the more honorable path.
There may be a tendency to spread yourself too thin, or to take part in too many opportunities at once, Cancer, and this might cause a burn-out – or be the cause of the one you feel you are moving into June with.
The first part of June may be somewhat slow moving, allowing you the space to do some needed heart-pondering and soul searching. As the Summer Solstice and the sign change when the Sun moves into your domain, you will more than likely feel energized and refreshed to act upon your new understandings and push for what you desire.

VI the Lovers
June is bringing a lot of change into your World, Leo, and it is all based on the decisions you make. You are ready to grow, and to move beyond your current limitations because you feel you have much more experience, and to share, than where you currently stand now.
June asks you, are you ready to spread your wings, and fly? Or does the fear of falling keep you from reaching beyond?
You might be met with a crossroads in June - a turning point in your life that will affect not just you, but also many other aspects as well – as the remaining cards will foretell. You must be careful about your next step, because whatever you do, will pave a new path for you, and the changes cannot be undone. Your future rests in your hands this month, Leo. You are responsible to grasp onto the opportunities available which bring the happiness and abundance you desire in life.
The New & Full Moons of the month, as well as Venus and Mercury moving into your domain will have an enormous effect on you in terms of your value system. You might feel that you are being sucked into a cycle or are called to revisit old memories where you were happiest or where things were much easier for you – this isn’t anything negative, as you are gifted this time of review so to understand the correct path to choose when you encounter that fork in the road.

There is a lot going on in June, a lot of good, but sometimes you aren’t so optimistic, Virgo. There are opportunities available this month which offer you happiness and even more than you had anticipated. However, where self-worth is concerned, you might be limiting yourself from receiving all the goodness that is due, because you don’t believe you deserve it, or have what it takes to obtain it.
The Gemini Super New Moon might take you off your center and plummet you into a World of doubt, second opinions and a more pessimistic view. Where a practical approach may be taken, this time around you are asked to look deep within yourself, as the restrictive subconscious patterns that keep you limited in gaining what you desire, deserve, and where your support is. If this deep thought-provoking energy is used correctly, then come the Capricorn Full Moon, you may experience a payout in karmic rewards that change the game in how you perceive your worth, and the worth in others.
June is a good month for you, Virgo, as long as you view it that way, as your perception is what creates your reality, and your gifts of manifestation are in full-throttle this month.

Not everything you hear, is true. You may come across some information in June that isn’t very reliable, however the source is someone you have felt you could trust, and so you may be in for a time of indecision – which happens to be one of your most famous characteristics. You can hear information from more than one source, and outweigh fact from fiction all you want, but the truth lies in what you feel.
You will be called to do your own research, and not to discredit the information you come across, but to gain your own validity and to go from there.
This may be an opportunity that seems paved in gold and leaping before you look may cause you to regret it – but with your own groundwork and even applying a different method could make it more than you were promised.
The Gemini Super New Moon may bring about a messenger who this all stems from, and the Capricorn Full Moon may bring about the result of the decision you make.

The month of June invites you to ’get away from it all’’, Scorpio. As we enter the months of summer, you should consider taking a trip or small vacation. Not only is it a tradition to do so around this time of year, but it will also do you some good. You need to take a break from stressful situations, so you can come back with the vitality and refreshed state of mind to accomplish what you need to.
While May had offered you magic and fulfillment, it seems that June not only offers a rest from all that activity, but also a little drama to push you into taking a break. However, peace is assured, so don’t fret, Scorpio, while you are a master-problem-solver, you will be gifted some downtime because after all, you are only human and need to respect your energetic limitations. The first part of June brings magic into your World, sealing May on it’s high note that you left you on, but, what goes up must come down.
You might feel tested in certain areas of your life this month, Scorpio, but there are also other areas that have you feeling that you are on the right track.

Are you ready for good things, Sagittarius? June is going to be quite magical for you. Not all is paved in gold, though, and so while you are called to follow your heart – you must take your brain with you!
The Sagittarius Full Moon from the last week of May is going to carry its good charm into June as well, there’s just something about the magic a fresh start brings which has you sitting on top of cloud 9. June asks for you to be creative, and to trust in where your intuition guides you, as something wonderful is emerging but you have to be heart-focused in order to discover what it is.
June is going to make you feel that you are on the right path as a new opportunity comes through to signify this. You may have been anticipating this for some time now, or it’s been a dream that is beginning to manifest itself into your reality. It is important to stay grounded, and to not bulldoze so quickly onto new pathways without first formulating a plan that allows you to take it all – you don’t want to miss out on anything this month, Sagittarius, just when you think you’ve struck gold, you need to dig a little deeper because there is so much more to uncover!

You are dedicated and committed to your goals and dreams in June, Capricorn. The cosmos are heavily influenced by your sign, and so with that comes an array of energy to support your ambitions.
You’re working hard at making your dreams come true, and nothing stands in your way – well other areas in your life as the cards foretell might be a bit difficult, but its nothing you can’t handle. You are one to have a strong tunnel vision when you’re focused on your goals, but fortunately June offers many opportunities to also relax a bit and have fun – that is of course when it comes to raking in the fruits of your labor and basking in the feeling of accomplishment.
June also brings with it a very significant opportunity that will be too good to turn down. Even when you feel that your hands are full, with a little time management and organization – one of your strongest characteristics – you will be just fine to take it on.
The Capricorn Full Moon brings karmic rewards near the end of the month – so it may take a while for this opportunity to present itself, but rest assured, it is coming.

Your strongest form of support lies in your family connections and sticking to tradition, Aquarius. You are typically the odd-ball, or the black sheep, and so your family relationships are most likely far and few between. However, June shows you that you are truly loved, and supported in the ways you need it the most.
You may also be considering moving back home, which isn’t an easy decision because you’re self-sufficient and independent. However, there is something you need help with this month, so remember that there is no shame in asking for what you need and allowing others to step in.
An opportunity is emerging in June as well that could help secure your future with more stability and also promotes further growth in areas that you want to expand on. It is important that before taking on anything, you consider how it will affect the future before blindly walking into it.
Also, where family is concerned, there may be something you do not agree upon because of traditions sake – being an unconventional sign, this doesn’t really seem to phase you, but it could cause more drama to prove your point than it would to simply agree to disagree.

Queen of Wands
Passion, creativity, and grace are the frontal focus of June. In May you had felt alive with energy and drawn to something new which seems to be taking place for you in June, as well as certain consequences to actions which you may soon regret this month – but you are still rather optimistic about the future regardless.
The name and game of this month is cause and effect.
You are rather busy this month, Pisces, in both the social sense and in other areas of your life. While you are rather adaptable, too much activity can easily over stimulate you, and so do not forget to put up boundaries when self-care is concerned.
There is also a push for freedom – you cannot bare to feel caged in this month because there is so much to do and experience. You are loyal to the bone, Pisces, but you cannot conform to something that eats at your spirit or freedom of expression. Being such a selfless sign, being selfish in choosing yourself might seem a bit foreign to you, but this month calls for you to consider your desires, needs, and wants before submitting to someone else’s.
