Venus, planet of love and relating, leaves Cancer and your opposite sign ruling relationships on the 5th.
Yet this doesn’t necessarily mean that love is absent in your life this month.
In fact, the theme of partnership is currently strong and the more you express your passionate nature, the better.
Yet, it’s when planets are in Cancer that the magic can happen in relationships and the Solstice on the 21st heralds the return of the Sun to this sector of your chart. Three days later on the 24th, Mars, the planet which rules passion and the libido, joins the Sun in Cancer.
This is an important time for you to prioritise love and relationships. You can come across as a cool character, dignified and reserved, yet the stars are urging you to express your feelings, to declare your love and to make sure that you’re getting the love you want and deserve. Be more passionate, spice up your love life and add some heat and warmth to your one-to-ones.
If you’re looking for love, turn it into a project that inspires you. Be colourful, be bold, chase after love rather than wait for it to find you. You might meet someone new through your place of work and lucky love connections are also linked to your family. Ask for an introduction and look out for a potential soulmate at a wedding or family get-together.
You’re a loyal lover, and loyalty and honesty are essential qualities in a healthy relationship. If you’re in a long-term relationship or marriage, there are two main areas of your life that are currently highlighted. One is money and being in touch with what you value highly in life, the other is emotions and being able to express what you want and need.
Venus, the planet of love and relating, enters Leo and this sector of your chart on the 5th where she remains until early October, apart from two weeks in Virgo late July. Money and emotions are now closely linked and these are the areas of your relationship to work on and to get right.
It depends on your own personal situation what this means for you but this might highlight issues around generosity, who earns the most, who pays the major share towards household costs, etc. Your partner’s financial concerns have a knock-on effect for you, whether they are paying alimony, childcare costs or whether they receive a bonus or an inheritance.
In many respects, this is potentially a successful time for you financially as after the 5th, you have both the benefics, Venus and Jupiter, in Leo and your joint money sector. This highlights shared resources, money that comes in via a partnership, a joint venture, an alliance. When you have planets in Leo, you have money matters to negotiate, whether this involves savings, investments, taxes, insurances and Venus and Jupiter together signal prosperity. Do your sums and look at ways to boost your financial situation.
On the 22nd, Jupiter in Leo is in a stunning trine aspect to Uranus in Aries, the sign down at the base of your chart. This is the third and final connection of these two mighty planets. They first met in September 2014, then again in March early this year and this is the third and most powerful aspect.
Together these two planets represent space and freedom, expansive moves, a positive date to take a risk, to play big in life. They highlight a break through or the chance to break free. This is good news for a property move, a chance to make money from the place you live or by changing your accommodation in some way. Rent out a room, upsize, downsize, seek out hidden treasure in the attic, ask a family member for financial help or advice, be open to a gift from family.
Plus this is a good month to focus on your work and health and to get your lifestyle in shape. Where you live, the people you see on a daily basis, what you do for a living, all of this has a knock-on effect on your well-being. This month there’s a run of positive aspects that help you create the changes you want and need to move forward in life.
Look out for new opportunities in the first two weeks of June and know that the turning point comes on the 11th, when Mercury, planet of communication, turns direct in the heavens in this sector of your chart. Mercury turning direct often brings new information to light or you hear the news you’ve been waiting for. It’s the planetary equivalent of a green light, the switch that flicks from off to on.
If you’re looking for work or a new job or an improvement in your health, this signals a shift in energy. Be proactive on or around this date and note that five days later there is a New Moon in Gemini and your work and well-being sector. New Moons symbolise new beginnings, the chance to start over and an excellent day to launch a project and set your intentions. It’s a positive boost of planetary energy.
The other major factor to note in June concerns your ruling planet Saturn. Saturn retreats into the sign of Scorpio on the 15th where it remains until September 18th. This three month period symbolises a return to the past in some way. Scorpio rules friendships, groups, community, wider society.
Saturn was in this sector of your chart from October 2012 until December 2014. You might be revisiting an old issue or problem relating to these areas of your life. There might be a chance to tie up loose ends, to resolve an issue or to find closure.
Again this relates to passion, a common theme for you over the next few months. Whether you’re passionate about politics, environmental or world concerns, whether you play a key role within an organisation and want to make a difference, tie your flag to your mast.
Saturn can bring an ending or a new responsibility. Either way, get busy and focus on this new deadline of mid-September. There’s a lot you can achieve when you put your mind to it.
