June is going to be a rather intense month in terms of dealing with massive shifts that come out of nowhere. The Retrograde and Eclipse season is upon us, and with it comes internal change that will eventually manifest into our environment. This is a month of great work that leads to even greater rewards.
The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on the 5th kicks off June with a bang as we are graced with a very powerfully charged influence that gives us a greater vision of what lies beyond all of this great work we are having to put in during this retrograde season. This is a time of completion, in seeing the results from the trials and tribulations we have endured since the prior Solar Eclipse in December of last year. When the Moon is in Sagittarius, it asks us to refocus our goals, and to revamp our goals and dreams, so to make diamonds from the lumps of coal we were once handed.
On the 18th we are put through the ringer as Mercury goes retrograde, joining Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn. When Mercury is in retrograde is slows things down and stirs up the past, allowing for us to bring to completion old projects that were didn’t complete, or to revamp something to make it even better than it was before. Being in Gemini, this signals a time of miscommunication and also issues with travel or technology, and so it is extremely important to read through your texts, emails, and even think before you speak, as you could spike up some conflict over something not being put in the right context. Also, back up all of your important work, as you don’t want to deal with a faulty computer and losing everything you have been working so hard on for a very long time.
The Sun moves into nurturing Cancer on the 21st, which is a time of taking care of others and ourselves, in being motherly and tending to our emotions in ways that bring comfort. This is also a time of high sensitivity, and so it is vital that Mercury’s retrograde in Gemini is not taken lightly, but seriously, as emotions are bound to be extreme during this time.
Also, on June 21st there is a New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Cancer, which really brings Cancer season on the forefront taking better care of our emotional bodies, and also placing a major importance on childhood wounds, or even taking better care of our own children. This is where major internal work starts to take place, and while it might not be easy, we can count on Cancer’s loving influence to help soothe what hurts.
A few days later Neptune joins the retrograde season, this makes FIVE planets all in retrograde for the majority of June. When Neptune goes retrograde is when illusions are easily seen as reality, especially with Mercury in retrograde as well, our senses are not that reliable. This is also a time of wanting to run from reality, and so taking part in mind-altering substances can be an issue when the urge to run away is acted upon. Being in Pisces, where Neptune is home, this is also a time of psychic downloads and falling more heavily into meditative trances, and so when this time is used for the purpose of spiritual exploration, it can be extremely beneficial in that sense.
On the 25th, we move back to only four planets being in retrograde as Venus finally goes direct. The inner focus on relationship dynamics isn’t completely put to rest, but we don’t want to focus so much on that value system and dealing with hard issues that had stirred up during the retrograde. Venus is still in Gemini as well, and so with it being direct we can enjoy that light-hearted fun that we were graced with before it had gone retrograde.
The final cosmic shift of the month is Mars moving into Aries on the 27th. This is where Mars is at home and thrives. It was heavily watered down in Pisces and its action-oriented influence was tempered down with more dreaming than doing. Now, we have the energy and drive to act upon those dreams Pisces had inspired it with. This is also where tempers can flare, but as soon as they do and that release is granted, they calm right down. Mars in Aries is the perfect time to get to work on your aspirations, but, it is also incredibly impatient which can be a bad thing while Mercury is in retrograde, which causes many delays and roadblocks along the way.

June bestows a different perspective for you that inspires goals, possibly even a revised 5-year plan, in which you are focused on building towards. While you are more for instant gratification and prefer goals that yield quick results – this is something that is too promising to not work for. You don’t mind putting in that extra mile and learning something valuable that you can take with you far into the future.
This is a month to be respective, because you are working towards is going to teach you things which are far more rewarding that just the rewards alone. Determination and a willingness to learn are your vital keys to making June a very successful month that signals the start of something positive and that will continue to bestow rewards all along the way to completion, as well as far after you have realized your efforts.
While Mercury does go retrograde this month and so signing contracts or making deals is not favored – it does seem that you are going to be planning something that allows for you to do this in the near-future. With so many planets going retrograde, it may be best to hold off on pushing something into completion, and taking your time on it – perhaps the 5-Year plan can be translated into taking your time on something that sets the tone for the future.

Happy Solar Return, Gemini!
Your ruling planet goes retrograde this month, but in your sister-sign, Cancer. This means that the water-works are bound to happen and your mental-focused approach to things may become a bit softener and focused more on the heart. You are the sign of the intellectual, Gemini, and you don’t do so well with emotions because your mind tends to overanalyze your feelings, and so this could prove to be a rather difficult month for you when it comes to changing emotions about certain things you may have laid to rest in the past. Yes, that’s right, that one ex might be resurfacing and you are considering giving it a go again, or that one job opportunity you had thought was over and done with in the past makes a reappearance. While this is a lot to take in this month, it might not necessarily be such a bad thing, depending on your approach.
The key this month is to consider your experience – not to sugar-coat your trials and tribulations, or to overlook the successes – but to see things for as they were, so you know how to make the most of it in the present and into the future. You are incredibly optimistic and are willing to roll with whatever may come your way – however – it is important to listen to your feelings this time and allow your heart to guide you on what truly feels right. Don’t get lost in your feelings about the past either, as a tendency you might come across this month is reliving the past, or getting stuck in overanalyzing what could have been said, done, or considered, but to instead understand that you have that chance now.

Happy Solar Return, Cancer!
June is a month of activation – activating you onto a higher plane so to allow for you to feel comfortable within your environment, your place within the world, and also focused onto what the future may bring. If you have been wanting some sort of sign or confirmation that you are on the right path, then this month you are going to receive it, which will ignite a fire under you that pushes you to succeed and reach for those treasured goals.
You also find that you work well with others this month – so these goals may be something that you are working on with your significant other, or your close friends and family. This is something of a group effort, and not only does it allow for these goals to become more easily obtained, but for you to also feel more connected and at peace with your connections with others.
If this is something that has only been an idea, and not acted upon, then you may find that the ground is most fertile this month to reach out and make magic happen.

The first part of the year has been quite kind to you, and so it seems that since balance is all, June is going to be a bit difficult. You may suffer a loss this month, of something or someone that you were quite attached to, and so it is going to be rather heartbreaking to have to cut ties and let them go. This may also happen unexpectedly and so that could make it even more difficult to endure as the shock hits you like a ton of bricks. Avoiding the truth or what has come out, or resisting the changes that are bound to take place could prove to do more harm than good. You cannot run away from this and there is no way to change things around. You have to accept this and move forward, considering an ulterior route than you had first been committed to.
The 5 of Cups does promise a silver lining – or for a gift to come from the trouble it brings. While you are faced to deal with difficult circumstances this month, you will also be released from a struggle that you have grown so accustomed to dealing with, that you haven’t realized the peace it had taken from you. Not to mention, you may receive the gift of release in terms of having that good cry you had needed, allowing stagnate and pent-up energy to be removed from your energetic body, welcoming in new energy, and the dawn of a new day. As they say, you can’t have rainbows without rainstorms.

June might be a month full of hard work, but, it does seem that you have the right mindset to get the job done. You will have to put in double time, and might even feel that every where you turn, you are putting out fire after fire. You could be growing tired of all of this, feeling that you are putting in more effort than the rewards that are worth – but if you keep pushing forward, you will find that you are so close to the finish line, and the rewards are greater than you had previously imagined.
The key here is to remain focused on the bigger picture. This is all for something, and this something is very important to you. So as much as you might fantasize about throwing in the towel and calling it quits, or that everything you’re working towards isn’t worth it, you will find very soon that it really is. What might be really bugging you is seeing everyone around you enjoying the fruits of your labor while your crop hasn’t bloomed just yet. Everything takes time, and nothing is on the same schedule as everything else, so you have to be patient.
There is also a need not to obsess over the details – while that is something that you have a difficult time with. You will soon be able to reap the rewards for your hard efforts.

Right when you thought you were in the clear to venture towards greener pastures, something from the past comes in and puts a huge roadblock in place. You can dwell about this all you want, and curse the cosmos, but, you may soon realize that this is all due from procrastination – when you place that pot on the back burner, it will boil over and now you are left with the mess to clean up. Get to work, Libra, and clear this out of the way. Once you do, it will not come back around, sit in the back of the head when you just want to be clear from regret or worry, and it will no longer come to rain on your parade.
You might feel that there is just too much to do this month and are not sure where to start, but that is because your perspective is looking at the whole picture, where it instead needs to chop it up in smaller parts – as when you do that, you will find that when you get to each step, in the long run you will make strides rather than jumping into the mess and potentially making an even bigger one.
There are good things to come from all the hard work, Libra, so do not lose faith!

It seems that events are going to happen rather fast this month, Scorpio – good or bad, you better try your best to keep up with it all. It is also important to know that whatever does cross your path this month, that you have all that it takes to handle it. No obstacle is too difficult for you to overcome, as long as you have the right mindset and remain focused on your destination.
Your mentality is the key to making this month successful. You can easily wallow in despair about certain events not going your way, but if you allow that to take power over your mindset, then you would surely fail. You need to pick yourself up and remind yourself that as the sign of Transformation – you can turn any mountain into a mole hill and easily surpass whatever comes your way.
June is going to be a very significant month for you, in playing out how the future is going to unfold in concerns to your treasured goals and aspirations. Remain positive and remind yourself that you can do anything you put your mind to.

Well, Sagittarius, it seems that this month is going to stir up a lot of trouble for you. This might come around the beginning of the month, during the Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse which is within your sign. Something may trigger you, or perhaps you feel that you have to stand on guard because of disappointing circumstances that take place within your social life, relationships, or your career. This is all happening because you are in desperate need of a shift – you cannot go about the same way you have before and things need to change, and they may be changing in ways that are not favorable, but it is all for the sake of shaking the ground so that you move towards a better path, or make the changes needed to improve the path that you are on.
When conflict occurs this month, you would be better off not stooping to the level that is instigating the fight, as two wrongs will not make anything right, and you could end up making things much worse if you fight fire with fire. You will need to stand your ground, but also take in the changing tides to help wash away what no longer works for you.
This may also be something stemming from the past – perhaps an old flame comes back around but not in the best way, or an old situation strikes back up for resolution and you have no choice but to get to work.

Even though you aren’t in the spotlight as you were in the past, Capricorn, since many of the planets have left your sign, it does seem that you are still going through a karmic cycle. However, this month you are going to receive more rewards than lessons. This is a good thing, especially if you have put in the work, as it signals a time of leveling up and setting your sights on broader goals and dreams. The sky was once a limit for you, but now you are looking beyond that and seeing there is even more to reach for.
You are going to receive a gift this month from an unlikely source, and there will be no strings attached either, which might feel a bit off to you because you know that nothing is given to you for free. However, the gift has been earned, and so know that when it comes, it is something that you have already put in the work for. This is your karmic reward. This is also a gift that is to be put to good use towards your new aspirations and dreams, and so be sure that you use it wisely and gain even more than you had first imagined you could.
Likewise, you may be in the giving spirit as well. So, when that urge strikes and you want to take part on a good deed, then do it. Karma works in many ways, and sometimes we are the catalyst for it to use in order to reach to others in need.

Just like your neighboring sign, Aquarius, you are in store for a karmic month just as Capricorn is. This is partly because as Capricorn was in the spotlight, and still is, within many of the karmic and power-hungry planets, you are now on center stage. However, this is more than just karmic gifts which have been earned through your own soul’s evolutionary path, but from your ancestral patterns as well. You will be receiving a gift, or karmic rewards, that have been earned through bypassing and working through the karmic cycles that your ancestors had passed down to you. This may manifest through receiving material gifts from family members, or even through receiving spiritual downloads that promote golden ideas.
There is also something traditional this month as well – such as a celebration, family get-together, or something within that nature which is expected to happen yearly. You might be reconnecting with family members that you haven’t spoken to in the past as well, creating peace where there was conflict and restoring your sense of family all together.
All in all, June is going to be a very good month for you in terms of reconnection and revisioning your future.

Things might not be the best this month, but in the end, you have to consider the positives amongst it all. You have had a great past few months, and so it does seem that as many signs have to deal with a massive shift, you are no different. The things which are crumbling in your life had not been working, and so it is necessary to let go of old patterns of thinking or even behaving. This month you are gifted fresh new ground, but first you have to experience the burning affect of what no longer serves you to be scorched in the fire of change.
You may find that you have to say goodbye to certain influences in your life which have not been the best for you, and while you did not see it at first, you will soon see that this is all for your benefit, and for your future success as well.
It is important to run with the flow rather than resisting it, and try to remain present amongst it all. Count on those good friends and positive social influences in your life to lift you up, as when you need a friend, you will find that you are met with the support you need to raise your frequency in seeing the positives that are all around you.
