As we enter the month of June, it’s hard to believe that the year is halfway over! We’re picking up the pace as we wrap up Gemini season, the last sign of springtime, and move forward into the summer. Mars begins retrograde on June 27th until August 27th, turning our anger, ambition and drive inward. Despite the high volatility of this month, don’t forget what makes you shine by staying true to yourself! To get an in-depth look at your sign for June, read on.
Gemini: May 21 to June 20
The month of June presents you with a unique set of challenges, which makes it hard for you to be understood. Be mindful of how you present yourself and your thoughts, as a lack of honesty will get you in trouble and hurt your reputation. If you’ve been feeling lost or rootless, quiet your mind and listen to what your heart is asking for. Activities like meditation, writing, dancing, or listening to music will be helpful during this period.
Cancer: June 21 to July 22
June demands that you firm up, Cancer. The first half will allow you to reflect on what fears and insecurities get the better of you. Growth demands that you leave the safety of your shell and move out of your comfort zone, even if life feels particularly confusing and chaotic. Mercury moving into your sign during the middle of the month will encourage you to speak up for yourself and your needs, a skill which will come in handy as the month unfolds. Until then, pamper yourself, be kind, and try not to focus on the worst possible outcomes of situations.
Leo: July 23 to August 22
The month of June may compel you to seek out a way to change your reputation for the better. Try broadening your circle of support to include friends and associates who share your vision for the future, and will support you through thick and thin. Mars’ presence will push you to be more direct with others, but do your best to keep your ego in check. Around the same time, Venus will be moving into your house of self, which means that it’s time to make an impression on a potential bae or convince your friends to see your side of an issue.
Virgo: August 23 to September 22
June is the month of creative culmination for you Virgo. Your hard work is finally being seen and recognized, so give yourself a pat on the back for sticking it out and having faith in your talents. With Mars entering retrograde near the end of the month, you may notice a slowdown in productivity. That doesn’t have to be a negative thing, however, since you’ve been charging ahead the rest of the month. Use this downtime to take extra care of yourself and keep your pent-up energy from burning you out later on.
Libra: September 23 to October 22
June is a month of learning and applying that knowledge for you Libra. Think about the bigger picture by adopting new ideas and concepts that may come in handy for your career. If you haven’t already, you might find yourself starting a new hobby soon enough. Be open to opportunities that will introduce different viewpoints, enhance your skill set, or allow you to travel. You can have it all if you give yourself room to grow beyond your expectations.
Scorpio: October 23 to November 21
For you Scorpio, June will allow you to track your progress and become an authority on what you know and teach. Take stock of what you’ve learned and imparted to others; which parts of this story should you end, and which need another chapter or two? As Mars enjoys an extended stay in your house of home, old memories could be awoken and feelings of anger might arise. Pay attention to what comes up, for it could give you clues on how to transform those painful experiences into lessons that you can use to heal yourself and others.
Sagittarius: November 22 to December 21
June will remind you that you are not alone in the world, Sagittarius. It might feel like you’re the only one struggling to get your creative projects off the ground, but you’ve got company. Move over and allow others to join the ride, as the new moon on the 13th will ask you to consult partners who could offer a different perspective. These characters might come in the form of interested friends or lovers, who will remind you that you don’t have to go at things alone just to prove yourself, for there are many ways to get what you want and plenty of people willing to pitch in to help.
Capricorn: December 22 to January 19
Having fun is good for you, Capricorn, but like anything else too much of a good thing can easily turn bad. If you’ve been overindulging in the sweet life or staying up til all hours, be sure to commit to a new health regimen when the new moon arrives on the 13th. When Mercury enters your house around the same time, stay open to flirtation. If you’re already partnered up, expect to see extra attentiveness from your boo. Be aware and open to the actions and interactions of those around you, for you never know where they may lead.
Aquarius: January 20 to February 18
Just when you thought you were ready to roll, things might take unexpected turns this month. These pauses are not necessarily bad, for they will give you time to get your act together and let go of some of your more unhealthy habits. With the arrival of the new moon on the 13th, your fortunes may turn as your creations manifest into collaborations, or even romantic flings. Until then, be mindful of how you pursue your desires and whether or not you can commit fully to expressing your passion. There is light at the end of this long tunnel!
Pisces: February 19 to March 20
During this month, you may need to spend some time alone to get a clear idea of what you’d like to do next. You’re coming to the halfway point of work that you’ve started, and you may need to take your hopes and wishes more seriously. Consider whether your long-term goals need new imagining, or if you truly like the group of friends that you’ve been surrounding yourself with. Pay attention to your dreams during the next few weeks, and clean up your space. Make home a refuge where you can think about and plan what you’d like to achieve next. Don’t be afraid to follow your intuition and embark on whatever idea you come up with next.
Aries: March 21 to April 19
June will urge you to reflect on your thought patterns and ideas, as you may feel a sudden desire to stay closer to home. Invite close friends over and consider taking a break from the wider world just to get your bearings again. If you’re paying too much attention to the thoughts and opinions of others, you might have become disconnected from your own creativity. By taking time to focus on yourself, you’ll feel freer to indulge in things just for fun instead of charging ahead to achieve your goals. Take care of yourself now so you can be ready to spring into action when the time comes.
Taurus: April 20 to May 20
June will pull your attention to the main structures of your life, Taurus. The new moon will bring with if familial memories to be cherished and will give you the opportunity to find a balance between what you’re driven to do and what you need to feel. Since the middle of May, you’ve been asserting yourself and tapping into your drive to achieve your goals. However, with Mars turning into retrograde, your energy and focus may take a dip, causing you to reevaluate your course of action altogether. If you find yourself losing sight of the big picture, it’s a good idea to go home and recenter yourself. The love you find there will help you reclaim your passion, even when it seems like the wind has gone from your sails.
Be sure to make the most of opportunities this month, and don’t let Mars’ retrograde get you down!
