Aquarius (21 January – 18 February)
As June begins, you’re likely to be careering through life at a fast pace. This has a lot to do with the fact that you have action planet Mars in your star sign Aquarius and Mars is linked to drive and ambition, anger and passion.
Mars is a planet that wants things to happen quickly as it represents speed and an adrenalin rush. When you have Mars in your star sign, this turns you into a fighter and you want to win. In any competitive situation, you have the required grit and determination to get ahead.
Aquarius rules your personal goals and aims, your image and profile so this is about you and what you want out of life. The more you put in, the more you get back in return.
Love too is likely to be part of the picture, especially once romantic Venus moves into Leo and your relationship sector on the 13th. This is often a peak period of the year for love and romantic relationships and any romance is likely to be fired up with your current astrology.
Note, however, that Venus and Mars, the lovers of the heavens, clash on the 21st. This might only be a lover’s tiff but it is leading up to a couple of months when the eclipses kick in cutting across the Leo/Aquarius axis. These could be tempestuous times.
This is quite unusual for you if you’re a typical Aquarius. Being one of the air signs, you like to keep a cool head when it comes to your close relationships. This will certainly be evident for you in the first half of the month as other planets trip lightly through Gemini, a fellow air sign.
Communication planet Mercury is here until the 12th, a sociable placing for the talk planet. Plus, the Sun, your partner planet, is in Gemini until the 21st, the day of the Solstice. Gemini is flirtatious and likes to keep things light and this is a different feel to your astrology, than the more tumultuous Leo/Aquarius clash later in the month
It will help you to keep a sense of perspective and bring your quirky sense of humour into the mix. Hang out with people you enjoy, line up fun entertainment and be actively social. If you’re looking to meet someone new, this is an excellent month for falling in love.
Gemini rules the creative aspect of your nature, whether you’re making babies or working on your masterpiece. Whatever brings you pleasure in your life, do more of it. The Sun and Mercury unite in Gemini on the 6th and one week later there’s a stunning New Moon in Gemini on the 13th.
New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings and this is an excellent time of the month to ask someone out on a date or launch a creative project. Hang out with your kids too and learn from their playful attitude to life.
June could turn out to be an emotional month for your work and finances. It’s here where there’s a real flood of planetary energy and it starts early in June. The planet of relating, Venus, is in Cancer and your work and health sector until the 13th.
On the 1st and 2nd, Venus is caught up in a Grand Water Trine with expansive Jupiter in Scorpio and your career sector and imaginative Neptune in Pisces and your personal money sector. This presents an ideal opportunity to channel your emotions into your work and use your unique creativity to make a difference.
The more you’re in touch with your vocation in life and the more you love what you do, the better this flow of planetary energy. Communication planet Mercury picks up the Cancer baton from the 12th to the 29th and the Sun moves into Cancer on the 21st, the day of the Solstice.
Water isn’t the most comfortable element for you, so notice whether you’re feeling overwhelmed or overly emotional with regard to your work or future goals. Sometimes it’s hard to make sound decisions when everything is constantly flowing and moving, tugging at your heart strings.
Also, this month, there are key oppositions from Saturn and Pluto. Saturn is one of your ruling planets and both Saturn and Pluto can be a heavy influence. They add doubt or fear to a situation or slow you down interminably.
These oppositions kick in on the 6th, 16th, 23rd and 27th leading up to the Full Moon in Capricorn on the 28th. It is important that you don’t overdo things this month and you take good care of your health.
Notice when you need to slow down, notice when you’re giving too much at work and try and keep a healthy balance between work and play. The Full Moon is an important date to get decisive about what you need to do next, even if this means giving up a job or learning to say No.
Mars in Aquarius can make you feel as if you’re super-human but you do have to pace yourself in June so as not to reach burn out. Also, Mars turns retrograde on the 26th and will be on go slow for the following two months until August 27th.
This is another indication that you need to take care of yourself and your energy levels. Rein in your commitments and projects so you have less to do in July and August. Make time for you and use the Mars retrograde phase to review and reflect upon your current situation.
It does feel this month as if you’re running ahead fast but, if you overdo it, you might have to slam on the brakes and adjust your schedule accordingly by month’s end. You also don’t want to miss out on the lovely light and romantic astrology that’s wafting your way at certain moments throughout June.
