It’s a complex month astrologically. Yet, hopefully, you have plenty to be grateful and thankful for. As June begins, the Sun is in Gemini and your home and family sector until the 20th
Plus, Venus retrograde is here too indicating a sentimental period in your life, when you’re being transported back towards your past. Or, perhaps you’ve been enjoying lockdown and spending time with loved ones.
Certainly, the Venus retrograde phase indicates a slower pace and a longing or yearning for the past and simple pleasures.
As much as you might like to give in to the slow life, the simple life, this may not be possible in the month ahead. Firstly, you have action planet Mars in your star sign Pisces until the 28th.
Mars is go-getting and passionate, feisty and furious. In your personal sector, this is about your goals and aims, your physical body and well-being. You may run into competitive situations more than usual or find yourself at odds with others. The key dates are 3rd & 6th.
Notice whether you need an outlet for your anger and strong emotions. Get physical or obsessed about a hobby or personal activity that you can lose yourself in. Neptune, your co-ruler, is also in Pisces and is dominant this month.
Neptune’s the artist and poet, the musician and muse. It’s where you find inspiration in life. It feels urgent now that you have your escape, your ‘thing’, that’s personal to you.
Mars and Neptune align on the 13th, which could be gorgeously creative or spiritual. Or, perhaps, you choose to watch Netflix all day and drink wine – your choice!
With Neptune active, notice whether it’s easy for you to tell the truth. Neptune’s a slippery influence. If you’re a true Pisces, sometimes you find it easier to live in the world of fantasy rather than harsh reality.
With so many key planets retrograde, you may want to pull back from the news or prioritise kindness. Consider how Neptune’s influence can work in your favour.
Also, this month, a new eclipse cycle begins which is significant for you. It cuts across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac and the foundations of your horoscope. The first eclipse is a Lunar or Full Moon Eclipse on the 5th. This eclipse cycle continues until December 2021.
Eclipses often coincide with significant change. For you, this is about your home and family, also your career and vocation. It’s where you come from and where you’re heading to.
Someone may be on the move during the eclipse, leaving home or transitioning to a new domestic situation. It may be a turning point for your career or future direction and eclipses often coincide with unexpected events.
There could be a clear divide between your home life and your ambition. In fact, some of you might have to forego your own career or ambition to put your family first.
The second eclipse in June is a Solar or New Moon Eclipse and this doesn’t fall in the star signs Gemini or Sagittarius. Instead, the Sun moves into Cancer, a fellow water sign on the 20th and aligns with the Moon at 0 degrees Cancer on the 21st, the day of the Solstice.
Cancer rules one of the best sectors of your horoscope. It’s where you find pleasure and enjoy yourself. This is the sector ruling your hobbies and leisure activities.
It’s about play rather than work, entertainment and good times. Therefore, it’s important in the latter half of the month that you kick back and do more of what you love.
Cancer represents children and lovers in your horoscope. You might be enjoying yourself with the kids more than usual or be in the throes of a love affair. The close connections in your life are where joy can be found. as a Sun Pisces, you generally love to connect with others.
Make a commitment on the New Moon eclipse to bring more joy into your own life and the lives of the people you love. Give birth to something new.
Also, this month, communication planet, Mercury, turns retrograde on the 18th and remains on go slow until July 12th. This indicates a time to slow down the pace and do less not more.
An ideal way of spending the Mercury retrograde phase is to retreat and wind down so you can find a new perspective. Some plans may unravel during this Mercury retrograde phase but be flexible and give other people the benefit of the doubt.
You could reconnect with someone from your past during this Mercury retrograde. A childhood sweetheart or someone who played a key role in your upbringing. Even though the future’s calling you in June, you may not heed its call until the end of the month.
Jupiter is your traditional ruler and on the 30th, there’s a Jupiter/Pluto conjunction. This power duo came together on April 5th and they reconnect on November 12th.
They are currently in Capricorn and your friendship and group sector. Capricorn also rules your hopes and wishes. This feels like a powerful turning point for your future path.
You may find yourself in a position of influence. Or, recognise that you need to step up your game. Perhaps money is the motivator. Either way, you should feel a significant shift as June turns into July.
