Taurus (20 April – 20 May)
As June begins, it’s a good time to focus on finances as both the Sun and communication planet, Mercury, are in Gemini and your personal money sector. Gemini is a lively sign, so think of ways you can use Gemini’s quick-thinking nature to boost your earning potential and make sound financial moves.
The Sun and Mercury unite in Gemini on the 6th and there’s a New Moon in Gemini on the 13th, a symbol of new beginnings. This is always an excellent time in the month to set your intentions and take the initiative to get things moving.
Mercury is aligned with the lunar energy as it entered Gemini on the same day as the Full Moon on May 29th and it leaves Gemini just before this month’s New Moon on June 12th. As both lunar events reflect the financial axis of your horoscope, this is relevant. What you say or write or think could make a huge difference now, so work with the lunar energy to positively boost your prospects.
Also, this month action planet Mars is in Aquarius and your career and vocation sector, which means that work and money matters go hand in hand. Notice what happens on or near the 1st when Mercury and Mars connect in the air signs Gemini and Aquarius, an excellent day to walk (Mars) your talk (Mercury).
Mars in Aquarius is great for an online business and using technology to benefit your current work situation. If you’re looking for a job, get online and get internet savvy. Use online groups and forums to extend your reach.
It’s also a good time to think about updating your skills and how new technology can help you. Aquarius is an original and innovative star sign, the inventor of the zodiac. This is not a conventional career path by any means. Instead, walk your own path and be true to who you are. Future trends are a key part of your career success.
Note, however, that on the 26th, Mars turns retrograde in Aquarius and remains on go slow for two months until August 27th. Use this timing carefully because, once Mars is in retreat, it’s not the best time to push forward.
Mars rules your get-up-and-go and likes to move at a fast pace. This means that June is great for getting ahead but you need to think about adopting a different pace in July and August. With Mars in retreat, it’s a good time to review and reflect upon your situation. You may choose to take time out, go on a sabbatical or rethink where you’re heading and why. You may also work in a field where everything slows down in July and August.
This month isn’t all about getting ahead financially and professionally because of the movement of your ruling planet Venus. Up until the 13th, Venus is in the emotional water sign Cancer and on the 1st and 2nd, Venus makes a stunning Grand Water trine with Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces.
Water signs are about people in your horoscope and your connections. This feels loving and giving and it’s gorgeous for getting together with other people for a spiritual purpose or to celebrate and have fun.
This combination plays out again on the 19th and 21st, this time with communication planet Mercury in Cancer. Your social and romantic connections can be especially meaningful during these dates. Whether you’re reaching out to others for love and support or you’re giving of yourself, make the most of this flowing energy.
Uranus too plays its part here and as you’ll know, if you read last month’s horoscope, Uranus is significant for you because it’s now in your star sign Taurus. Uranus is the planet of change but also the planet that’s linked to the collective and your extended networks. Uranus teams up with key planets in Cancer on the 13th and 23rd.
This is ideal for being spontaneous, making new friends and being pro-active in your local community. Cancer rules siblings and neighbours in your horoscope and this is a good time to heal any rifts or establish close relationships.
Don’t let things drift, instead reach out and say what you need or write a heart-felt letter. It would be easy to allow distance to be a factor that comes between you and someone close, but don’t live with regret. Make a decisive move in June.
The Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac is about learning and teaching for you and there are some key oppositions this month highlighting these two star signs. The dates to note are the 6th, 16th, 23rd and 27th. You might be under pressure to perform or pass an exam or perhaps you realise that one area of learning is no longer a joy but an obligation.
Be realistic about what you can and can’t achieve but, at the same time, reassess what gives you pleasure and what’s become a chore. The Solstice on the 21st coincides with the Sun’s move into Cancer and one week later on the 28th the Full Moon aligns with Saturn in Capricorn.
This is the time to consider what you’re trying to achieve and why, especially when it comes to learning and education. If you fail an exam, do you want to retake? If it’s important to you, how can you rework your schedule to make time for a major commitment?
Finally, this month your ruler Venus enters Leo and your home and family sector on the 13th where it remains into July. This is a wonderful time to beautify your surroundings and enjoy family get-togethers. Don’t let work get in the way of close relationships, especially around the 21st. Keep a sense of balance in your life and get in touch with your ‘earth mother’ loving and nurturing ways.
