There’s still plenty of activity this month in the sign of Gemini, the sign before your own. Gemini rules communication but more importantly thinking. You’re one of the introverted signs of the zodiac and if you know already that sometimes you lose yourself in your thoughts or you become overly worried or anxious, find ways to unhook from your mind.
Gemini rules retreat in your chart so be on your own if it’s good for you, especially if you’re studying, but don’t spend too much time alone if you’re becoming overly obsessive. This is a month when it’s important to analyse your self carefully, to recognise when solitude is good for you and when it tips into unhealthy behaviour.
One planet that is pulling you back out into the world is Mars, the action planet. Mars enters your sign of Cancer on the 4th where it remains until mid to late July. So more doing and less thinking is the way forward, or at least balance the two equally.
This should help you be more spontaneous in life and a ‘just do it’ attitude can work wonders. Mars in Cancer focuses on your personal goals so line up what you want to do and make things happen. Be an active person.
There is one area of your life where perhaps you want less excitement rather than more and this is linked to your career or vocation. There’s been a lot of quite stressful planetary activity in Aries and your career sector since the beginning of the year. This will begin to ease from the 6th when Venus, the planet of relating, leaves this part of your chart.
However, before it does so, Venus teams up with Saturn on the 1st and Uranus on the 3rd. This feels lively and spontaneous but hopefully in a good way. You might recognise who’s on your side or who you need to step away from and give yourself some space.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius might be important in this respect as it takes place on the 9th and lights up your work and lifestyle sector. This would be a good date to make some important changes that benefit your health and well-being.
If your work is stressful, put yourself first and do less rather than more. If you get a chance to take on a less responsible role, you might decide that this is right for you. The Saturn-Uranus pairing continue to play an important part in your work scenario and all year, they’re helping you find a way to balance your working life better.
It’s not necessarily about throwing in the towel but finding new ways to work smart rather than work hard. Consider your options during the Full Moon on the 9th.
The 9th is important in another respect because this is the day that big planet Jupiter turns direct after four months retrograde or on go slow. Jupiter is currently in Libra and your home and family sector and once Jupiter is back up to speed, it powers through this part of your chart for the next four months.
So this is where opportunity lies whether you want to move home, expand your family, redesign where you live or get everyone together for a big family occasion. Jupiter’s on your side from the 9th onwards so make the most of its potential.
If you want to spend more time at home or with your family or swap your busy commute for a stay-at-home role, the 9th would be an ideal date to make such a big decision.
Yet you don’t have to make any major decision on your own now as other people are there for you. The planet of relating, Venus, enters Taurus and your friendship sector on the 6th where it remains throughout the month.
So this means that friends and group get-togethers are where strength and comfort lie. If you’re typical of your sign, it will be important that you have loyal friends, people you can turn to both in times of crisis and in order to celebrate and have fun.
In fact, it’s important now that you’re around people who make you laugh and remind you of what matters in life. Be with down-to-earth types who help you make the most of what you have, especially if you’re constantly seeking something new or different. Friends are your rock now with Venus strong in this part of your chart.
Love and friendship are also linked so if you’re looking for a new relationship, look closer at someone you know already. The best dates for finding love or asking someone out are the 9th, the 20th and the 24th.
Mars in your sign will help boost your self esteem and your confidence and when you step into your power, the rewards are plentiful.
Yet the big turning point for you this month is the Solstice on the 21st. This is always an important date in the astrological calendar as this is when the Sun enters your sign of Cancer. It’s the midpoint of the year, an important date for ritual.
For you, it’s a chance to celebrate your time of year and as the Sun rules vitality, it can literally feel like an energy boost. Plus communication planet Mercury enters Cancer on the 21st and immediately connects with the Sun.
Listen out for good news, ask for what you want and make the most of this special day for a meeting or interview.
Plus three days later, it’s the annual New Moon in Cancer, an ideal date to launch a project and start something new. June has the potential to get better and better for you as the focus turns towards your sign.
There’s no point hanging around if you have something important to do when it comes to love or a close relationship. The planet of relating, Venus, has been in your fellow fire sign of Aries for most of the last four months but on the 6th, it moves on.
Before it does, however, Venus connects with Saturn on the 1st and Uranus on the 3rd and these are your partner planets. If you want to be spontaneous in love, go for it; if you’re ready for new beginnings make it happen. There’s a new story about to emerge from mid-June onward.
Certainly June is a month when people matter and it’s your interactions with others that can make the biggest difference to your life not only personally but professionally as well.
On the 6th, Venus enters Taurus and your career sector and this is prime time to schmooze people of influence and to get on the right side of the people who matter. Venus in Taurus is good news for networking, making connections and even better, meeting the person who loves what you do.
After a period when work has been something of a slog, you’re entering a purple patch. If you’ve done all that was asked of you recently, this is the time when you reap your rewards. It’s also a good month to invest money in your career, whether you’re buying a new work outfit or employing a coach or expert advice.
Make an effort to extend your network now as this is how to be successful. Up until the 21st, your ruler the Sun is in the sociable sign of Gemini ruling groups, societies and associations. Hook up with the right people and this is the way to go far.
Notice who comes into your orbit on or around the 3rd when the Sun teams up with Jupiter in your ideas sector. This combination promises opportunity and good fortune.
Alliances move up another notch once communication planet Mercury joins the Sun in Gemini on the 6th. This is a quick-thinking, fast-paced Mercury and it makes for a lively month. Line up some key meetings, interviews, even a workshop or conference. It’s a go-for-it time in many respects but more than anything, you can get ahead in your career and make some important contacts.
This is a time to remind yourself that what you do in life can be fun. The Full Moon on the 9th lights up the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac and this highlights play and good times. When you feel that you’ve found the right team or you’re part of a group that gets you and knows who you are, you boost your happiness factor.
Plus on the same day as the Full Moon, big planet Jupiter turns direct in your ideas sector and will remain in direct motion for the next four months. This is your chance to make an impact through your words, whether you’re leading a group, speaking in public or sharing your experience in writing.
Jupiter’s the planet linked to publishing and the media and this combination of Jupiter in your communication sector suggests that you have something to say, that other people want to hear. You might be leading workshops or talking in a public arena. You might want to be part of a group of people to share your ideas. Whatever your personal situation, this is the time to get heard.
Mid-month you could find yourself up against opposition when Saturn challenges the Sun and Mercury on the 15th and 18th respectively. Yet Saturn is no longer working alone as live-wire Uranus is in tow. If someone doesn’t get what you’re saying or doesn’t agree with you, find a new way to put your ideas across.
This is potentially an exciting combination as long as you don’t give up at the first hurdle and, if necessary, you’re willing to try and try again.
Mid-month could also be important for your 1-to-1’s and it’s important that you have clear boundaries within your close relationships. If love and friendship are intertwined, be careful otherwise someone could get hurt. You’re a big-hearted character but you can find it hard to take criticism. Look after yourself and don’t put yourself in the way of negativity.
If you’re looking for love, take note of the Full Moon in Sagittarius and your romance sector on the 9th. This is a classic symbol for enjoying yourself and meeting someone new.
Yet the pace of life has to slow down as June continues and perhaps you’re already aware that you’re running out of steam. Even the sturdiest batteries need recharging at some point and this might be true for you if you’re running heater skelter through life.
Physical planet Mars is in Cancer and the most hidden sector of your chart from the 4th so don’t take too many risks now and pace yourself, especially if you’re involved in physical or adrenalin-boosting activities.
Yet the real turning point comes for you on the day of the Solstice, the 21st. This is the midpoint of the year and it coincides with the Sun’s move into Cancer, the sign before yours. This symbolises retreat, a need to take time out, to be quiet, to recuperate.
Plus on the same day, communication planet Mercury enters Cancer so listen to your inner voice, your intuition. The New Moon in Cancer on the 24th is yet one more indicator that some quiet time is called for, perhaps seeking a spiritual path rather than material goals.
Certainly you need to find some time for you especially if you have a busy schedule. From next month onwards, the personal planets will be back in your sign of Leo so do what you need now to be fully fit and relaxed.
An idea can turn into reality early in June. As the month begins, your ruling planet Mercury is in your fellow earth sign Taurus, highlighting travel, study and new experiences. Mercury is linked to communication and the mind and it’s the ideas planet. If there’s something you want to do, explore your options in the first week.
Then on the 6th, Mercury leaves Taurus and passes the baton on to Venus, the planet of relating, which remains here until the end of the month. Venus in Taurus represents sensual experiences and it’s about living life to the full. What starts as an idea early in June can quickly become reality if you act swiftly on what you want to do.
Venus in Taurus indicates that this is a lovely month for a holiday or trip away. Even if you only have little time available, a change of scene can have a big effect on your well-being. You need beauty in your life when Venus is in Taurus, so seek out inspiration, art, nature and beautiful places.
The best weekends to take off somewhere new are the 9th-11th and the 23rd-25th. This is also a good month for a holiday romance or a romantic trip for two. In fact, it might be your partner who surprises you with a special gift this month.
The two planets connected most closely to love and relationships in your chart are Jupiter and Neptune and both of them switch direction this month. Jupiter turns direct on the 9th and Neptune turns retrograde on the 16th.
So this is about switching things up, losing the rose-coloured glasses perhaps and being positive about your relationships and the two of you together. Don’t let things slip into a rut and be bold and seek out new opportunities together.
For some, this switch in direction could mean that you’re going your separate ways or perhaps one of you is off on an adventure whilst the other stays home. Ring the changes now and have faith that some time apart will help you to reassess and review your love relationship.
For some, this might not be the best month to go away, which is why a day trip or weekend break might be best. There is strong emphasis this month on the sign of Gemini ruling your career and vocation. Action planet Mars is here until the 4th and the Sun is in Gemini until the 21st.
Most important for you however is the fact that your ruler Mercury enters Gemini on the 6th and remains here until the 21st, the same day as the Sun. Mercury is strong in your career sector so make the most of this quick whizz through Gemini to line up important meetings or interviews.
Mercury in Gemini is fast-paced and quick thinking and if you keep your wits about you, you can make great strides this month in very little time. The 9th could be an important date in this respect when the Full Moon cuts across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac lighting up your foundations.
This is when you can get the work/life balance into perspective and it’s a strong date to look at where you’re heading and why. In addition, opportunity planet Jupiter turns direct in Libra and your personal money sector on the same day.
This feels like a whoosh of positive energy surging into your work and money sectors. Look out for a lucky opportunity that comes your way or the fact that you find yourself in the right place at the right time. The 3rd and 13th are expansive dates for your work and career and a new job, position or contract could pay well.
There may be some opposition from close to home, perhaps with regard to your family. The trickiest dates to negotiate are the 15th to the 18th when taskmaster Saturn opposes the Sun and Mercury in Gemini.
This feels like someone or something holding you back, not allowing you to make progress as you would like. You might have to care for someone at home or perhaps you find that other people aren’t as convinced of your new plans or ideas as you are.
If their doubt comes from a place of fear, it’s important not to let this hold you back. However, if you do have to postpone some work commitments and there’s no way round it, then look at how you can do things differently. Money is important now and ensuring that you negotiate a good deal. Don’t undervalue your skills and put your own needs first.
Friendships are under the cosmic spotlight this month too especially once Mars enters Cancer and this sector of your chart on the 4th. Mars represents passion but also anger and this can be a tempestuous placing for the planet of action.
Try not to let this spill over into your close friendships or group activities. Yet at the same time, know that you might clash with other people so be aware of this. The best date to sort out any friendship difficulty is the 21st, the day of the Solstice.
The Solstice is the midpoint of the year and it’s also the day when both the Sun and your ruler Mercury enter Cancer and your friend and group sector. Plus the Sun and Mercury unite in this sign. Ensure you have the conversation that matters the most.
There’s also a New Moon in this same sector of your chart on the 24th, ideal for new beginnings, meeting new people, making a fresh start.
Yet, feisty Mars isn’t going away completely as you might discover on the 28th when your ruler Mercury runs into the God of War. It may take a lot of forgiveness on your part if a friendship isn’t to crash and burn.
Events early in the month of June are important for you. This is because your ruling planet is Venus and Venus has been in your opposite sign of Aries for most of the past four months. This could indicate that there’s one specific relationship that’s taken up a lot of your time and energy and perhaps you’ve been giving more than you receive.
Potentially Venus in Aries promises passion and it may have been a fast-paced time for love and your close 1-to-1’s. Yet there can be something exhausting about this volatile scenario and you might be more than ready to slow the pace down or even move on from someone who you recognise isn’t right for you.
Yet if you want one last go at love or you keep going back to an ex, the 1st and the 3rd are pivotal dates when Venus runs into Saturn and then Uranus. Try as hard as you like, it’s going to be tricky to reach an agreement that sticks and in fact, events close to the 3rd could be the turning point that helps you realise you want to do things differently.
Then on the 6th, Venus enters Taurus, one of the earth signs where it remains throughout the rest of the month. This is sensual, slow, leisurely and luxurious and Venus is far happier in a sign that represents nature and reliability than whizzing around endlessly in fiery Aries.
So give yourself a break from any situation that’s wearing you out and consciously choose a peaceful path. Venus and Mars come together on the 9th, a day when the lovers unite and in fact, Venus remains strong throughout June so there’s plenty of potential to get a relationship and life in general back on track.
Taurus rules money in your chart and as Venus is strong in Taurus, this could mean that you’re in the money. Certainly you’ll have a taste for the high life with this combination although security matters. Treat yourself and if any extra money comes your way, plan for the long-term. This feels a steady influence after a few months of volatile planetary activity.
Hand in hand with Venus’ move into Taurus is Mars’ move into Cancer and your career sector on the 4th. Mars remains here until mid to late July and this is the time to crank up your ambition.
If work’s been in the background rather than foreground in your life, here’s your opportunity to get ahead. You might simply find that you have more motivation for your work and career once Mars adds drive and determination to your professional toolbox.
Where you’re heading in life is also highlighted this month during the Solstice on the 21st. This is the midpoint of the year and it always coincides with the Sun’s move into Cancer and your career and vocation sector.
This indicates that you’re moving up in the world and there could be a change of status or a desire to improve your reputation. On the same day, communication planet Mercury enters Cancer and the Sun and Mercury unite on the 21st.
This is an excellent date to apply for a job or ask for promotion. One way or another make the most of this cosmic energy and negotiate your way up the career ladder. Plus three days later on the 24th, there’s a New Moon in Cancer, a symbol of new beginnings.
So the end of June is an excellent time to focus on your future goals and make the most of this dynamic work and career astrology.
Before this however, you might be wise to get away or take yourself off somewhere different. Even a quick trip could be just what you need, a breath of fresh air. It will also help you to gain new perspective on events over the last few months.
The 9th is a special date in this respect when there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac and the travel and study sectors of your chart. Plus, lucky Jupiter turns direct on the same day in your sign of Libra and this is gorgeous for you, especially if your birthday falls between October 5th-7th.
Jupiter is the planet of opportunity and good fortune and after four months retrograde or on go slow, it’s back on your side. So whatever you’ve been planning, it’s an excellent time to revisit your big goals in life and to use visualisation to good effect.
Jupiter will continue its journey through Libra over the next four months so embrace freedom, travel and new experiences.
Study too is part of the current cosmic picture and in fact, it’s a positive month for taking exams, especially when clever Mercury lights up your education sector from the 6th to the 21st.
The only potentially difficulty comes mid-month when Saturn opposes the Sun and Mercury in Gemini on the 15th and 18th respectively. This might mean that someone stops you in your tracks or fear or doubt kicks in.
If you find yourself stalling or you have writer’s block, turn to someone who knows you well for fresh advice and inspiration. You’re a people person at the end of the day and if you spend too much time on your own studying or researching, being around other people is what you need.
You can also benefit by expanding your network and hanging out with people who are unique or different. This is not a month to keep life ordinary and in fact, you’ll find that more opportunities come your way if you walk the path less travelled. The more you put into your life this month, the more you get back in return.
Your ruling planet Mars is leading the way this month and changes signs on the 4th as it enters your fellow water sign of Cancer. Mars remains here until mid to late July and this lights up your travel and study sectors. You won’t be satisfied with a mundane lifestyle once Mars enters Cancer and your visionary qualities will be in full flow.
In some respects, Mars in Cancer is a weird dichotomy because Cancer is the sign that rules your home and family and yet in your chart, this is your travel sector. Perhaps this means visiting family abroad or considering a holiday home or living somewhere new.
At the very least, Mars in this part of your chart reawakens your sense of adventure and it’s a positive month to line up some new activities that boost your knowledge and satisfy your yearning nature.
Note the date of the Solstice too, which is the 21st. The Solstice is the midpoint of the year when the seasons shift due to the tilt in the earth’s axis. This always coincides with the Sun’s move into Cancer and this year the Sun is joined by Mercury, the communication planet.
In fact, the Solstice feels special this year because the Sun and Mercury unite on this day. This would be ideal for planning a holiday or trip away or taking yourself off on a personal development or life-enhancing course.
Then three days later, there’s a New Moon in Cancer on the 24th, another excellent date to broaden your horizons and to line up a new travel or study adventure.
So this is where you’re heading throughout June but you have other issues to deal with before you get there. Money remains an important factor, especially if you’re playing a waiting game. The Sun is in Gemini and your joint finance sector until the 21st but the most important transit this month is Mercury in Gemini from the 6th to the 21st.
Mercury is strong in the sign of communication and this is a key time to negotiate, to chase up money owed, to get your finances in order. You will have to move fast but it’s worth doing so, especially as there’s the potential to do well financially.
Admittedly other people hold the key and the Full Moon cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of your chart might reveal more. This takes place on the 9th and on the same day lucky Jupiter turns direct in Libra and a hidden sector of your chart.
This indicates progress, perhaps news you’ve been waiting for or success with a legal, publishing or media project. Yet Jupiter is hidden in your chart so you might have some way to go before you benefit completely from a changing situation. Jupiter will take four months to reach your sign of Scorpio on October 10th.
So now’s the time to do your research and prepare yourself for the next big wave of action and transformation. As Jupiter only visits your sign of the zodiac every 12 years for approximately 13 months, it makes sense to do whatever you can to be ready for this exciting transit. Jupiter represents opportunity and good fortune, expansion and freedom.
Back to money and the trickiest period to negotiate is the 15th to the 18th when Saturn opposes the Sun and Mercury in Gemini. Saturn in Sagittarius isn’t the best news for your personal cash flow as it represents limitation, obstacles in your path and Sagittarius is your personal money sector.
Yet remember that Saturn has help at hand this year in the form of Uranus in Aries. So even if cash is tight or your money is tied up with other people, you can still reinvent yourself and find new work to help you moving forward.
Uranus rules technology and Aries represents your work and lifestyle. Put the two together and look out for a chance to get ahead, perhaps close to the Solstice on the 21st. The other key dates for your working life are the 1st and 3rd when Venus completes her epic journey through Aries and this same sector of your chart.
Take what you’ve learned and put it to good use early in the month. Look out too for a key individual who can help you get ahead.
On the 6th, Venus changes signs and enters Taurus and your relationship sector. This is a lovely placing for the planet of love and relating as Taurus is steady and sensual. This spells good news for a long-term relationship or marriage especially if you’ve been through a rocky patch of late.
It might not mean that you’re moving forward together but it’s less volatile and more settled. The best day for love in general is the 9th when the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, unite. A romantic break or trip away could quickly reignite the passion between you.
If you’re looking for love, look for someone who’s steady and reliable. This might not be your usual type, at least straightaway, but it’s what will work best now. Potential romantic dates are the 20th and 24th when Venus receives extra blessings from first Neptune and then Pluto.
If anything, you’re not the one who’s strongest once Mars enters Cancer and Venus enters Taurus. This signifies your turn to let someone else take the lead, someone whose nature is calming and grounded.
There’s no point beating around the bush this month. One date stands out for all the right reasons and that date is the 9th. This is a double whammy of astrology joy that picks you out of the pack as the one to notice.
Firstly, this is the date of your annual Full Moon, i.e. the Full Moon takes place in your sign of Sagittarius. Full Moons represent celebration, culmination and they are often a time of achievement. You see your situation clearly during the Full Moon and as your sign is something of a hedonist, at the very least line up a party or big social event.
Plus on the same date, your ruling planet Jupiter turns direct after four months retrograde or on go slow. This is a whoosh of positive Jupiter energy and feels lucky for you. Jupiter represents opportunity and good fortune, freedom and expansion and it’s 100% in line with your visionary and risk-taking nature.
Also Jupiter is currently in Libra and the part of your chart that represents your hopes and wishes. So make the most of this positive vibe and plan something special for the 9th. Look out too for a person or situation that adds the luck factor to your own life.
Yet it’s not all about you this month as the people sectors of your chart are red hot. So don’t go it alone but team up with other people who complement your set of skills. It doesn’t really matter whether you want to get ahead personally, professionally or both. It’s simply a top month to make key connections that can benefit your life in more ways than one.
Libra rules your friendships and group activities so togetherness is a buzz word moving forward. In fact, one group or association could play an important role in your life over the next four months. Be around people who inspire you and encourage you to play big in life.
This month there’s also strong emphasis on your opposite sign of Gemini. Gemini rules your close relationships, both personal and professional, and your key 1-to-1’s. The Sun is in Gemini until the 21st and sometimes you find that other people have the upper hand when the Sun opposes your sign.
The Sun represents vitality so be wary of any relationship that saps your energy and don’t give more than you receive in return.
The other key planet in Gemini is communication planet Mercury which is strong here from the 6th to the 21st. This is why you’ll benefit greatly from negotiations now, so plan an interview or meeting that can help you get ahead. The 3rd and 13th are top dates for expanding your connections and making an impact.
Saturn is in action this month too and Saturn is currently in your sign of Sagittarius. On the 15th and 18th, Saturn opposes first the Sun and then Mercury in Gemini. So you either can’t get everything your own way when it comes to love and relationships during this period or you’re the one who’s saying No.
In fact, you might decide to put new boundaries in place especially if your love life is lively to say the least. Don’t forget that love planet Venus has been in the part of your chart that rules love affairs for the majority of 2017 and it’s only on the 6th of this month that Venus moves on.
Before it does so, Venus teams up with Saturn in your sign on the 1st and unpredictable Uranus on the 3rd. So anything goes on the love front and you might discover that you’re in the thick of a swiftly-changing romantic scenario. Perhaps this is why you recognise you have to issue an ultimatum or slow things down mid-June.
Having said all of that, this is an exciting month for love and relationships. Plus your ruling planet Jupiter is strong so if you want one person in particular or you want something special to happen, there won’t be a lot stopping you going all out to get your needs met and your wishes fulfilled.
Money too is under the cosmic spotlight this month, especially once action planet Mars enters Cancer and your joint finance sector on the 4th. Mars rules drive and determination and this is an ambitious placing for Mars.
So fight for what’s rightfully yours or take an active role in your finances. This is worth doing because there’s more positive financial activity later in the month. On the day of the Solstice, the 21st, the Sun also enters Cancer and is immediately joined by communication planet Mercury.
In fact, these two planets unite in Cancer on the 21st so you might be discussing finances on this date. Perhaps an inheritance or investment, linked to property matters or your family.
In addition, there’s a New Moon in Cancer on the 24th, a symbol of new beginnings so there’s a lot going on in this part of your chart. Make the most of it especially if you have some key negotiations to handle.
Finally this month, the planet of relating Venus is the most steady influence in your chart in the sign of Taurus from the 6th. This means that it’s time to enjoy simple pleasures and take the pace slow. Prioritise your health and well-being and do what’s good for you.
It would be a good month to join a regular exercise class or to get advice about your health moving forward. Venus rules women so look out for someone who can help guide you and give you good advice.
Work matters too flourish when Venus is in Taurus, as long as whatever you do is enjoyable rather than stressful. Take life at a slow, leisurely pace and don’t rush if you don’t have to.
Your ruler Saturn is in action on the 1st when it teams up with the planet of relating, Venus, in Aries and your home and family sector. This is a steady influence and it’s a chance to bring equilibrium to your current situation, especially if there have been lots of comings and goings at home or within your close family relationships.
Yet be warned that only two days later on the 3rd, Venus teams up with volatile Uranus and any good intentions could go out of the window. If someone close refuses to take your advice or isn’t ready to settle down, there’s not a lot you can do about it.
In fact, as Venus finally leaves Aries on the 6th where she’s been for most of 2017, it would make sense to stop trying to fix someone who doesn’t want to be fixed. Same goes if you’re repeatedly banging your head against a brick wall and doing the same thing doesn’t change your situation. Again take a step back and give yourself a break.
This could turn out to be a busy month too as there’s a lot of planetary activity in the air sign Gemini. Gemini rules your work and lifestyle, your health and well-being and this is where you find the Sun until the 21st and communication planet Mercury from the 6th to the 21st.
The Mercury transit in particular is fast-paced and you need to think on your feet. This would be a good period for important negotiations, to set up a meeting or interview that can help you moving forward.
Yet this is also about time management and perhaps looking at ways to delegate some of your tasks, especially if you’re super busy. Mercury in Gemini favours organisation and outsourcing some of your work or chores if your time could be better spent elsewhere.
The 9th is an especially important date in this respect when you might have a flash of insight or see your situation clearly. Firstly, there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac so work and health matters dominate.
Secondly, the big planet Jupiter turns direct on the 9th in Libra and your career sector. After four months retrograde or on go slow, Jupiter is back up to speed and the next four months are ideal for focusing on your career and vocation and where you’re heading in life.
Yet Jupiter is different to your ruler Saturn as Jupiter rules visionary goals and risk-taking. So you need to do things differently now in order to get ahead. This is the signature of the entrepreneur so look out for new opportunities which come your way or people who have a strong influence on your career path.
There’s another astrological factor later in the month which points towards you doing less not more. Think of how this can make sense to your current situation in order for you to be able to work smart rather than work hard.
This influence involves your planet Saturn and on the 15th and 18th, Saturn opposes the Sun and Mercury in Gemini. So something’s got to give during this period and it’s important that you don’t take on too much. Your health could suffer if you’re overly busy and it’s a good time to unhook yourself from a person or situation that asks too much of you.
You might have some big decisions to make in the month ahead but the right answer is going to be the one that boosts your profile and helps you move smoothly up your chosen career ladder. If you spend too much time running around doing chores and everyday work and overly giving to others, take a step back.
Focus more on what you love and your long-term goals rather than getting too caught up with what feels like a duty or obligation.
This is in line with Venus’ transit through Taurus from the 6th onwards. This is a sensual placing for the Goddess of love and it highlights enjoyment, entertainment and play. You get the most out of Venus’ loving ways by adopting a slower pace and focusing on creative and artistic activities.
Venus in Taurus is strong for your relationship with children if you’re a parent and for love affairs and new romance if you’re single. Move away from people who give off a negative vibe and surround yourself with luxury, comfort and sensual fabrics.
If you’re in a relationship or married, passion planet Mars enters Cancer and your relationship sector on the 4th where it remains until mid to late July. This is good news for your sex life although Mars rules anger as well as your libido.
Yet it gives a welcome jump-start to your 1-to-1’s and adds excitement to close relationships. Plus on the day of the Solstice, the 21st, the Sun and communication planet Mercury join Mars in your opposite sign of Cancer.
This is gorgeous for love and partnership and the 21st is a special date for connecting on a close intimate level with the one you love.
Three days later on the 24th there’s a New Moon in Cancer, so there’s a theme of fresh starts when it comes to your 1-to-1’s. This would be a good date to rekindle desire or initiate something new with your other half.
Yet it doesn’t have to be about love. In fact, it might be someone who comes into your life who makes things a lot easier. Any tricky political or social situation or clashing personalities can be sorted out swiftly towards the end of June.
It’s a lively start to the month of June as your co-rulers, Saturn and Uranus, are in action from day one. Both planets are in lively fire signs and people sectors of your chart. They are working in unison and team up on the 1st and 3rd with the planet of love and relating, Venus.
This feels exciting as if it could coincide with good news or meeting someone new who makes a big impact on you. Venus has been in Aries for a long time now and has spent almost four months in this one sector of your chart.
So something is either beginning or coming to an end but either way it feels decisive as if you finally know your own mind or you’ve met your match in a good way.
This might relate to love for you because there’s strong emphasis this month on the sign of Gemini, which rules romance and love affairs in your chart. There’s a playful quality to Gemini, that brings out the side of your nature that’s cheeky, light-hearted and ready for anything.
The Sun is in Gemini until the 21st and communication planet Mercury whizzes through Gemini from the 6th to the 21st. So don’t hang around if there’s someone you want to connect with. This is the planetary equivalent of speed-dating, jumping in feet first to introduce yourself to someone new.
There is a potential bump in the road however from the 15th to the 18th when Saturn, your traditional ruler, opposes the Sun and Mercury in Gemini. You might not be happy with the way a relationship’s developing or perhaps you revert back to the old you who doesn’t believe that things are going to work out.
Yet, as mentioned at the beginning of your monthly horoscopes, it’s not just about Saturn now as Uranus is part of the planetary picture. Uranus in Aries brings about a breakthrough, a fresh way of looking at an old problem.
Don’t let Saturn’s gloomy nature stop you if you sense that it’s only fear or doubt getting in the way. Tap into a new way of thinking, a positive mind-set and you can move mountains mid-month.
There may be some areas of your life that are a definite no-go zone and there will be certain scenarios where you have to put your foot down and say no more. If you’re a parent, for example, this might involve disciplining a child to ensure they have safe boundaries in their life.
Or perhaps you run into another scenario where you recognise that you want more commitment not less. This could also be a case of writer’s block if you’re involved in a creative project. If this is true for you, then look to the alternative viewpoint to help you find your way.
The Sun is your partner planet so mid-month could be a challenging time if you’re in a long-term relationship or married. You need to negotiate carefully, especially if you want different things.
This month is about freedom and keeping life light on the whole, which may not go down well with your other half. Yet it’s important to recognise whether this reveals more about your relationship and shows you where there are incompatibilities.
The freedom theme kicks in big-time on the 9th when there’s not only a Full Moon in the sign of exploration, Sagittarius, but the freedom planet Jupiter turns direct after four months on go slow.
This is especially important for you because Jupiter is currently in Libra, a fellow air sign. So this is where you can fly high in life and it’s an exciting, big-thinking planet/sign placing. Jupiter rules vision and risk-taking and it’s about getting in touch with the bigger picture, the deeper purpose in your life.
This is an exciting time for travel and study and living life to the full. Look out for new opportunities which come your way on or near the 9th and be daring and bold. Jupiter’s change of direction can also spell good news for a legal case or a publishing or media project.
You do need to heed the everyday side of life this month and how you earn a living. Action planet Mars enters Cancer, the sign which rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health on the 4th. Mars remains here until mid to late July.
This can be a time when you have to work hard and knuckle down and get on. Yet your drive and determination will pay off as long as you don’t take on too much stress and you ensure that your physical health stays in tip top condition. Mars in Cancer is a positive transit for starting an ongoing form of exercise or training.
What you put in now, you get back in return and this may become obvious to you on or near the Solstice, on the 21st. The Solstice is the mid point of the year and it always coincides with the Sun’s move into Cancer.
This year, the Sun is joined by Mercury the planet of communication and these two planets unite on the day of the Solstice. This spells good news and it would be an ideal date to apply for a job or have an important meeting or interview.
Plus three days later on the 24th, there’s a New Moon in Cancer, a symbol of new beginnings. So the planetary energy feels fresh and exciting as the month comes to an end.
Get into a rhythm with work and team up with other people to make your life and theirs easier. The same applies if you’re training or exercising. You’ll be more focused and stay on target with a support buddy by your side.
It’s an intriguing month when your co-rulers, Jupiter and Neptune, both change direction in the zodiac. The first planet to switch direction is Jupiter on the 9th as it turns direct and begins to pick up speed after four months on go slow.
The second planet to switch direction is Neptune on the 16th but whereas Jupiter is moving forward, Neptune flicks into reverse and begins its annual retrograde phase through the zodiac.
This is interesting symbolism and it perhaps suggests that you need to hold on to trust and faith this month, to act on your beliefs. This is where Jupiter’s strength lies.
Neptune could cloud the issue or you find it hard to explain to others what you want or need. If you’re not making yourself clear, take care that you’re not falling victim to Neptune’s confusion.
Neptune can lead you down the garden path if you’re not careful, if you let indecision or unclarity reign. Be wary of escapist activities if they don’t benefit you in any way, especially on the 4th and the 14th to 16th.
Yet Jupiter is flying high this month and this is good news for you. Jupiter turns direct on the 9th in Libra, the sign that rules joint finances and shared resources. So there’s a whoosh of positive energy as Jupiter picks up speed.
You may feel positive about what lies ahead or you recognise where success lies, either financial or emotional. Jupiter turns direct on the day of a Full Moon in Sagittarius, ruling your career and vocation.
Events close to the 9th could prove pivotal for you and if a new opportunity comes your way which links work and money, don’t let it slip through your fingers. This would be a good date to show off your skills and talents and let the world see who you are and what you have to offer. Value yourself highly when Jupiter’s strong and don’t undersell your capabilities.
Home and family matters are also high priority because of key planets in Gemini and this sector of your chart. The Sun is in Gemini until the 21st and communication planet Mercury is strong in Gemini from the 6th to the 21st.
So this is a good month to focus on these areas of your life, whether you’re building strong family relationships or you’re looking for somewhere new to live. There’s a buzz about your home or family, or your past or ancestry. Who you are and where you come from could bring you fresh insight in the month ahead.
Plus there might be help at hand from someone close, either financially or emotionally, when the Sun and Mercury team up with Jupiter on the 3rd and 13th respectively. This highlights money and property, so perhaps you rent out a room or ask for a loan from someone you grew up with. Either way, the two areas come together in a positive fashion.
The trickiest period for home and family life is from the 15th to the 18th when Saturn in Sagittarius opposes the Sun and Mercury in Gemini. This feels as if something’s got to give and you may have to prioritise one end of the axis of the zodiac, i.e. work or home/family.
This could be a time when the work/life balance feels out of kilter or you recognise that your affiliation to your loved ones stops you fulfilling some of your bigger goals in life. You’d benefit from setting some clear boundaries during this period or maybe you need to find a way to look at what’s positive and remind yourself of the plusses of your current situation.
Uranus is working in tandem with Saturn and Uranus in Aries highlights your personal money sector. So put your thinking hat on and you can come up with a way of getting round an obstacle or road block. It might be worth spending money to ensure that you can have the best of both worlds; your working life/vocation and your home/family.
There’s also some slower planetary energy this month which is beneficial for you. The planet of love and relating, Venus, is in the earth sign Taurus from the 6th and this is settled and leisurely, especially against the more manic Gemini planetary energy.
You benefit from creating grounding relationships close to home with people in your community or your neighbours or siblings. This will create a supportive atmosphere in your life and someone who lives close by could be a helpful sounding board during the month ahead.
If you’re looking for love, there’s good news because Venus is strong in Taurus and this is the planetary equivalent of falling for the man or woman next door. You might not have to travel very far this month to meet someone new. So look out who you bump into close to home and have some charming introductions up your sleeve.
Another indicator that passion is on the cards is Mars’ move into your fellow water sign Cancer on the 4th where it remains until mid to late July. Cancer rules romance and love affairs in your chart and Mars promises passion.
Plus, the Sun and communication planet Mercury also enter Cancer on the day of the Solstice, the 21st. This would be an excellent day for a romantic date, as is the 24th when there’s a New Moon in Cancer, a symbol of new beginnings.
If you’re seeking love, you’re in luck. Yet Cancer doesn’t only rule romance in your chart. It also lights up your children sector, your creativity and entertainment sector. Basically it’s about enjoyment and doing more of what you love. Another excellent diversion from any area of your life that’s proving to be a challenge.
The planet of relating, Venus, has been in your sign of Aries for the majority of the last four months but on the 6th, Venus switches signs. Before it does so however it runs into the planet of spontaneity, Uranus, on the 3rd. If you’re ready for one last blast of action or love adventure, here’s your opportunity.
Venus in Aries is self-centred and this can be a good thing depending on your current situation. Yet once Venus moves into sensual Taurus on the 6th, this is less about independence and more about creature comforts and compromise.
This is confirmed because of what’s happening to Mars, your ruling planet. Mars is also on the move early in the month as it leaves chatty Gemini and enters caring Cancer on the 4th. Mars will remain here until July 20th.
This indicates a slower pace of life and the 9th is an important date for your 1-to-1’s. Venus and Mars unite on this day and work together, hand in hand. It’s time to think of others or at least ensure that your close relationships are based on equality. You can’t have everything your own way, especially when it comes to love and partnership.
Mars in Cancer is leading the way for another important event this month, the Solstice. The midpoint of the year, the Solstice takes place on the 21st, the day the Sun moves into Cancer. So home and family matters are going to dominate now for one reason or another.
You might be thinking about moving home, getting in the builders and your home or family life could be noisier and livelier than usual. The Solstice is an important time to communicate with the ones you love as talk planet Mercury also enters Cancer on the 21st.
Traditionally the Solstice is an important time for ritual, meditation, honouring the Sun. Yet this time around, listen out for important news or make a decision to speak up, to reconnect with loved ones. The Sun and Mercury come together on the day of the Solstice, a powerful time to gather the clans and to prioritise family affairs.
Three days after the Solstice on the 24th, the New Moon takes place also in Cancer and this is a symbol of new beginnings, the chance to make a fresh start. It would be an excellent weekend for a family get-together or being with the people you love the most. This is a positive date to look for somewhere new to live or to put your home on the market.
Venus in Taurus is in sync with Mars in Cancer as it rules money, objects, possessions. You may find you’re more attracted to beauty whilst Venus is in the artistic sign of Taurus and you want to treat yourself and the ones you love. June would be a perfect month for you to redecorate or bring more beauty into your home.
There’s still a strong emphasis on the sign of Gemini throughout June, so although Venus in Taurus and Mars in Cancer call for a slower, more luxurious way of life, you’re not stopping altogether. Gemini rules all forms of communication, including the written and spoken word and it’s linked to study and learning.
Mercury is Gemini’s planet and from the 6th to the 21st, Mercury is strong in its own sign. Make the most of this whether you’re taking exams or there’s a lot you want to say. Set up an important meeting or interview and get involved with your local community. This is a top month for trade, selling, wheeling and dealing.
Gemini rules short trips, how you get from A to B and how you communicate. This is a good time to ensure that everything’s working well, transport, technology, etc. and in the best condition possible. This is important because Saturn in Sagittarius opposes both the Sun and Mercury in Gemini on the 15th and 18th respectively.
Saturn is the cosmic equivalent of a road-block and you may have to come up with new ways of getting from A to B whilst Saturn’s energy is strong. Uranus, the inventor planet, is still active in your sign of Aries, however, so if anyone can be innovative and versatile, it’s you.
The absolute best date for travelling or booking a trip, holiday or course is June 9th. This is when there’s not only a gorgeous Full Moon in the sign of exploration, Sagittarius, but Sagittarius’ ruling planet Jupiter turns direct.
This is sky-high flying potential as Jupiter represents luck and good fortune, new opportunities and risk-taking. Look out for someone who comes into your life close to this date offering you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Jupiter is in your opposite sign of Libra ruling partnership and although Jupiter’s been retrograde, i.e. on go slow since early February, it’s now moving forward in positive fashion for the next four months.
So you may run into some difficulties this month but this is more likely to be when Saturn dominates from the 15th to the 18th. This could be someone saying No to you or finding that a dear teacher or guide is retiring or no longer available to you.
Don’t give up on your hopes and dreams and know that June is a positive month for you on the whole. Freedom is strong in your chart but at the same time pay attention to loved ones and know that you can’t have everything your own way.
That doesn’t mean you’re going to be sitting at home twiddling your thumbs and doing nothing. June most definitely has other plans, especially close to the 9th.
This month your ruling planet Venus moves out of Aries, your previous sign, where it’s been for most of the time since early February. Before it does so, however, Venus teams up with the powerful Saturn-Uranus pair, a key feature in this year’s astrology.
You may have learnt something amazing over the last few months and understand more about what freedom means to you or how you benefit from time spent alone. The 1st and 3rd are key dates this month to gain self-insight and understanding. Look deep within and know where and why you’re ready to cut ties or break loose.
Once Venus leaves Aries on the 6th, it enters your sign of Taurus and remains here until early July. This is gorgeous for you to have your ruling planet in your sign and strong. So make the most of it. Do more of what you love, be sensual, be wholly Taurus. Yours is a down-to-earth sign that enjoys life’s luxuries and natural pleasures.
If you’ve spent most of this year so far feeling as if you’re running on empty or chasing to catch up, it’s time to slow down the pace and make the most of what you have. Venus in Taurus only receives positive planetary aspects this month which suggests that other people are on your side and your persuasive skills are top-notch.
Plus, this isn’t about doing things on your own which may have been a key feature of the last few months. Instead, support and advice is there if you’re willing to ask for it and teaming up with other people to brainstorm and share ideas could prove highly beneficial.
One of the best dates this month is the 9th and it starts for you with an easy connection between Venus, your ruler, and Mars, your partner planet. Mars enters Cancer and your communication sector on the 4th where it remains until mid-July so reach out to others now. This is a symbol of team-work, togetherness, community and companionship.
Cancer rules activities close to home so explore your local community and see what’s happening close to where you live. This isn’t the time to hide away but to extend beyond your own personal world and start to do things differently.
Cancer rules your siblings and neighbours so be sociable and make a point of connecting with others. Sometimes all it takes is a smile or a simple question to start the ball rolling.
Money too is a key feature of June’s astrology as there’s plenty going on in the sign of Gemini ruling your personal money, your values and possessions. The Sun is here until the 21st and communication planet Mercury is strong in Gemini from the 6th to the 21st.
So line up some important meetings and make a conscious effort to sort out your finances, to negotiate, to talk money. If you’re a typical Taurus who loves trade, wheeling and dealing, this is prime time to harness your inner Del Boy and make some money in the process.
The Full Moon on the 9th takes place in Sagittarius and cuts across the financial axis of your chart. On the same day, lucky planet Jupiter turns direct in Libra and your work sector. Put the two together and this could be a turn-around date for your financial good fortune.
Network your socks off, put in an application, ask for a promotion. It’s an excellent date for taking a risk and playing big. The cosmic line-up is quite extraordinary on the 9th so ensure you’re in the thick of the action.
You haven’t quite got rid of Saturn however, the responsible planet that’s been slowing down your joint finance potential for some time. Saturn’s in action on the 15th and 18th as it opposes first the Sun and then Mercury in Gemini.
This isn’t quite so smooth as Saturn often represents an obstacle or road-block. You’ll have to come up with new ways of getting around an old problem or negative energy but don’t give up. Venus, your ruler, is in persuasive form on the 20th and 24th. Talk to your friends for inspiration or advice and if necessary get legal advice if you need it.
The Solstice promises good news, an important meeting or interview. This takes place on the 21st, the day when the ‘sun stands still’, the meaning of the word Sol-stice. It’s the midpoint of the year when an important shift takes place as the earth tilts on its axis. Long days will grow shorter or short days will grow longer depending where you live.
On the day of the Solstice, the Sun enters Cancer and your communication sector but it’s not alone. The Sun is quickly joined by communication planet Mercury and they make a powerful conjunction on the same day.
This is brilliant for ideas, meetings, plans. Get talking and you can swiftly find a way to turn a No into a Yes. Plus three days later on the 24th, there’s a New Moon in Cancer, a symbol of new beginnings.
This is an excellent date to initiate an important conversation or to ask for what you want. Bear in mind that June’s theme is about togetherness for you, working alongside other people to fulfil your own and their needs.
You need to ensure that you can get from A to B quickly and it’s a good date to update your transport, change your commute or invest in new technology. Other people will want to hear what you have to say and will appreciate your willingness to be flexible.
You may find that more than one person in your life turns to you this month for help or inspiration. Be their sounding board and the rewards will swiftly follow.
It’s your birthday month and it’s quite a month for you. The Sun is in Gemini until the 21st but the most important planetary shift is your ruling planet Mercury also in Gemini from the 6th to the 21st.
Mercury is the messenger in astrology and your sign rules communication. So get things moving this month, expect to be busy and use this lively astrology to come up with new ideas, have fun and dash through your ‘to do’ list.
For the last few months, your ruler Mercury has been dithering, sometimes going crazy and other times wanting to retreat. Yet the 6th is a key turning point for you when there’s no reason to hold back or not speak up.
Your sign is linked to the media so brush off your public speaking skills and your ability to talk to anyone who will listen. Whether you’re writing your memoirs or blogging on a website, make sure that your voice is heard.
There will be a couple of occasions when you’re up against opposition but that’s not to say you should let someone stop you in your tracks. Yes, Saturn opposes the Sun and Mercury in Gemini on the 15th and 18th respectively but if anything, you’ll enjoy the banter and being able to push forward your own opinions.
The only area where you might need to temper what you say is at work or in your career. Neptune remains in Pisces and this sector of your chart and on the 16th, Neptune turns retrograde. So not everyone will want to hear what you have to say and if you sense that you’re only speaking up to be controversial, weigh up the pros and cons carefully.
If you’re disillusioned with your current place of work, you may see no option but to voice your concerns. Yet know too that rocking the boat will have consequences, especially if your boss/employer/opposition doesn’t want change or new ideas.
Money matters are dominant too as ambitious Mars enters Cancer and your personal money sector on the 4th where it remains until mid to late July. So this might be another way out of a role that’s holding you back.
Look at new ways of earning money and use your wheeler dealer, trading skills to enliven your finances. The 21st, the day of the Solstice, is especially powerful for you. The Solstice represents the midpoint of the year and on this date, the Sun always enters Cancer and your money and values sector.
This year it’s joined by your ruling planet Mercury and the Sun and Mercury come together on this very important day. This is perfect for a meeting with your bank manager or coming up with new ways of improving your finances.
Plus three days later on the 24th there’s a New Moon in Cancer so there’s a real sense of taking the initiative now with regard to money and launching a new money-making project. This isn’t about other people’s finances, it’s about your own money and being independent.
One area that’s particularly interesting this month is your love life and your close relationships. There was a buzz last month about romance and meeting new people but events in June conspire to bring something extra special your way. You’re the butterfly of the zodiac but this isn’t a time when you can flit through life.
Instead, notice where you’re at on or close to the 9th, a special date in the astrological calendar. On this day, there’s a Full Moon in Sagittarius, your opposite sign. So this highlights relationships, your 1-to-1’s, both personal and professional. Full Moons often reveal the truth of a situation or bring matters to completion.
In addition, Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, your partner planet and on the same day the 9th, Jupiter turns direct in the relationship sign of Libra after four months on go slow. This is a whoosh of positive energy and if you’re in a relationship or married, it could spell celebration for your partner or an exciting announcement.
In fact, it would be a wonderful day to marry or have an engagement party. Libra rules romance in your chart so everything’s coming together for a perfect coupling. It is your partner however who seems to be the one instigating events and Jupiter rules freedom. So for some, this might be a time when you’re breaking free or a relationship enters a new stage.
Either way, there’s plenty going on and with love planet Venus in Taurus and the most hidden sector of your chart from the 6th, a secret love affair could be your passion. You might take a risk when you enter into a new relationship but this month’s astrology suggests ‘nothing risked, nothing gained’.
The 9th is not only about a love relationship but could indicate a powerful partnership elsewhere in your life. Look out for other people who inspire you or seek out a role model. Having someone around who you can learn from could make all the difference now.
This is one of the most exciting months of the year for you so embrace whoever or whatever comes your way and follow where your free spirit leads you.
You’re the joker of the zodiac and right now, your ability to look on the bright side of life will be a joy and inspiration to others and your personal calling card that can open doors.
