Scorpio (24 October – 22 November)
As June begins, your ruling planet Mars is moving forward in Aquarius, the star sign at the base of your horoscope. Aquarius rules your home and family, your past and where you come from and it’s important to get things moving in these areas of your life sooner rather than later.
Money too is part of the picture because key planets are now in Gemini and your joint finance sector. Communication planet Mercury is here until the 12th and the Sun remains in Gemini until the 21st, the day of the Solstice.
Gemini rules joint finances and shared resources in your horoscope, all forms of money transactions and financial deals. This includes mortgages, savings and debt, inheritance, investments, bonuses and any other form of money transactions you can think of.
The 1st is a key date in this respect when Mercury and Mars align. This is an excellent date to sign a contract and put your money where your mouth is. The 6th is also notable, when the Sun and Mercury unite in Gemini, a great day for a meeting with a financial adviser or mortgage broker, for example.
Plus, the New Moon in Gemini on the 13th highlights this same sector of your horoscope and the New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings. It’s an excellent date to pay off a debt, open a savings account or line up any other form of financial negotiation that is relevant to you and your current situation.
You might be helping out a member of your family deal with their finances or perhaps asking people close to you for their advice or support. Negotiate well and work together to ease your financial situation.
This is particularly important because, on the 26th, your ruling planet Mars turns retrograde, i.e. it will be on go slow for the following two months until August 27th. Mars in retreat isn’t a time when you can get ahead, so you might be playing a waiting game or have to change your plans in some way.
Your attention often turns inwards and rather than chasing ahead, you have to review or reflect on your situation. Bear this in mind and sign and seal any important documents or contracts, especially around family or property matters, before the end of the month.
June is also a month when faraway places waft their magic. You might have a holiday planned and, even if you don’t, it’s a good month to consider travel and look at ways of expanding your horizons.
Lovely Venus is in Cancer and your travel and study sector until the 13th. Plus, on the 1st and 2nd of the month, Venus is caught up in a Grand Water Trine with expansive Jupiter in your star sign Scorpio and romantic Neptune in creative Pisces.
Put all this together and you might be swept away on a wave of love or perhaps you’re feeling the lure of the exotic and want to embrace adventure and live life on the edge. Notice who comes into your life at the start of the month as Venus is your partner planet. This is when a significant individual could play an influential role and inspire you to live vibrantly.
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. So this emphasis on travel and study, in order to find meaning and purpose in your life, continues throughout June.
Being one of the water signs, you need inspiration in your life to live well. Mercury in Cancer also creates a Grand Water Trine on the 19th to the 21st and Uranus in Taurus and your relationship sector kicks in on the 13th and 23rd.
Be open to other people now, especially alternative types or people you wouldn’t normally hang out with. The more you step out of your comfort zone and experiment with all things new and alternative, the better. You need to find your dream world now, as this is what will inspire you moving forward.
There is one proviso, however, and this is the fact that you have the power duo, Saturn and Pluto in Cancer’s opposite star sign, Capricorn. So there will be some opposition to your plans or perhaps you find yourself attached to the past, unable to move on.
These two planets kick in on the 6th, 16th, 23rd and 27th leading up to the Full Moon in Capricorn on the 28th. As Capricorn is your communication sector, notice whether you’re around negative people on the dates mentioned or whether it’s what other people say or do that affects you.
The other alternative is that you’re the one giving yourself a hard time and, if you’re a typical Scorpio, you may already know that you can spiral down into a negative whirl of energy. This is when you need people around you who bring light, humour and fun to the mix and take you back up to the light.
Be careful what you say this month as your words will have consequences, both spoken and written. Plus, if you have any hassles with bureaucracy or legal affairs, take the pace slow and be patient.
You will come up against roadblocks and you’re going to have find resilience to keep moving forward. Look for alternatives. Here too, find the person who knows the tricks to open any closed doors.
Finally, this month, Venus moves into Leo and your career sector on the 13th and this too flags up the need to get the right people on your side. People of influence can open doors for you and this will be important moving forward.
We’re entering into eclipse season in July and August when change is on the cards. Keep reinventing yourself and be a savvy Scorpio at work and at play throughout June.
