Gemini (21 May – 21 June)
The quicker you get things moving as June begins, the better. Although, this might depend on your current situation. Perhaps, you’ve been incredibly busy recently and you’re ready for the fast pace of life to slow down a little. The astrology suggests that you are slowing down throughout June, or at least you’re wise to as the month progresses.
This is all connected to what’s happening with your ruling planet, Mercury. As June begins, you have Mercury on your side, strong in Gemini and its sign of rulership. Mercury’s only in Gemini until the 4th, but this does coincide with a New Moon in your star sign on the 3rd.
New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings. In Gemini, this offers a chance for you to speak up, get yourself noticed, make things happen. When planets are in Gemini, this is about your image and profile, how other people see you. It’s also about your personal goals and aims. Starting a project that’s dear to your heart, for example, or implementing new ideas and fast.
The stars are on your side as June begins. Get in step with the Gemini vibes and put yourself first. Enter a competition, ask for what you want, write things down. Your star sign, Gemini, is linked to writing, so journal, get yourself published, pen a letter to your family or friends.
On the 4th, Mercury changes star sign and moves into Cancer, where it remains until the 27th. Mercury joins Mars here, so there’s a lot of dynamic planetary energy in this sector of your horoscope. Mercury rules communication and Mars rules action. This is ideal for walking your talk, especially with regard to money matters.
Cancer rules your personal money sector. It’s about your possessions and assets, your values and self-worth. You might choose to speak up about what you’re paid. Or perhaps, you’re discussing options regarding your home and what you own or earn.
This planetary activity peaks on the 18th when Mercury and Mars come together. On its own, this is great astrology for getting ahead with money matters, whether you’re in key negotiations or keen to earn more.
However, the astrology from the 14th to the 20th is challenging because Mercury and Mars run into the formidable planets, Saturn and Pluto, in Capricorn. Capricorn is your joint finance sector, so this can be about inheritance or investments, savings or debts, mortgages or taxes.
This could flag up a challenging situation as Saturn and Pluto are authority figures. When you’re aware of this astrology, you can see that this would not be the time to get embroiled in a law-suit or difficult tax situation.
You might have to justify what you’re paid or fight for what’s rightly yours. Or perhaps, it’s a time when you’re determined to pay off a debt or cut ties so you’re no longer financially dependent on a third party. Expect to negotiate hard if this is a key financial period for you.
The karmic nodes are also part of the picture and you do have the north node next to to Mars and Mercury on the 12th and 15th respectively. Therefore, if you know you’re in the right, you have the flow of destiny on your side. Watch out for a chance to turn the wheel of fortune in favour of your financial situation. You need to be bold and courageous to do so.
A much easier influence throughout June is the entry of Venus into your star sign, Gemini, on the 9th. Venus rules love and relating, also money and abundance. Venus is the planet linked to art and beauty.
This is another nod in the direction of looking good and feeling good. You may be keen to engage a personal stylist or be considering a new look. You enjoy the good things in life when you have Venus in your star sign.
This could also be a peak month for love and relationships. In fact, there’s a lot happening in this sector of your horoscope. Venus is lighting up your attractiveness and popularity sector. Plus, your partner planet, Jupiter, is currently in Sagittarius and your relationship sector.
Jupiter’s here for most of 2019, encouraging you to prioritise and create the relationships you want in your life. This might mean breaking free from a relationship that’s not working out or chasing across the world to declare your love for someone in your heart.
Romance & The Full Moon
The key date for love this month is the 17th when there’s a Full Moon in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s star sign. Full Moons promise completion, a culmination and they shine a light on your current situation. This would be a gorgeous date for a proposal or wedding or to meet someone for the first time. If you’re in a relationship or married, prioritise love and declare your affections.
Romance is in the air mid-month because of the Jupiter-Neptune square on the 16th. These two major planets met on January 13, 2019 and meet again on September 21, 2019. This month is their second meeting.
Wherever you find this pair in your horoscope is where dreams can fly high, where you can take a leap of faith. Plus, Neptune is the romance planet. It’s compelling symbolism for embracing love.
It’s not only about love and personal relationships, however, because Neptune is in Pisces and your career sector. Therefore, this is about business partnerships too or an opportunity to fulfil your career dreams and chase after your true vocation.
In fact, this is a key month to get carried away, especially if you have been feeling disillusioned of late. Neptune’s the veil which sometimes distort reality. Plus, there is a financial factor here too as Saturn in Capricorn is pulled into the mix. On the 18th, Saturn and Neptune connect and on the 21st, Neptune turns retrograde.
Put all this together and you have to do the sums, work out the financial reality of a big goal or dream. Some of you may choose to chase the money or do the right thing financially. Or perhaps, you find yourself in the right place at the right time to let go of the ties that bind and fly free. See what occurs and notice when and where you’re in flow with life.
Finally, your planet Mercury moves into Leo and your communication sector on the 27th. It won’t be long, however, before Mercury turns retrograde and retreats its steps through the zodiac. June starts quickly but by the end of the month you’re slowing down. Get in step with the universe and maximise your chances of success.
