Gemini (May 20-June 20): Happy birthday! With all of your brilliant ideas, you need more than 24 hours in a day. Amiright? #geminiproblems. You are about to enter your NEW SOLAR YEAR. 2017. It’s a one year, too (2+0+1+7=1), which is all about new beginnings. With some retrogrades early in the year, you might have had to adjust your day-to-day focus because of unexpected life circumstances. You’re ready, now, to direct your total energy toward one great goal. You have tremendous manifestation mojo; use it wisely and aim high.
Magic happens when you feel your intention deep in your heart and bring divine light through your entire being. In that process, you animate desire. I repeat: Focused intention and light moving through you. Magic stops when you try to control people, places, and things. So, let go and play. It’s summer, after all, a good time to relax on the beach or lounge by the pool.
Mercury moves through your sign from June 6-21. This period is excellent for reading, writing, and preparing business presentations. Your mind functions with heightened creativity, and you can strategize any uncertain situation to work out solutions. This is also an excellent time to promote yourself or your business through social media or one-on-one networking. The Sun in your sign helps you attract new audience members and friends, especially on June 18. You might receive surprising good news about your business. After June 4, Mars helps energize your financial situation by bolstering your competitive edge.
During times of wild change, your creativity reaches a peak. Bringing beauty and order to chaos is a true Gemini talent. You might want to embark on a creative project or journey. Alternatively, a writing class would help focus your ideas.
Or feed your wanderlust. Travel to gain perspective. Although your travel plans might not manifest until later this summer, you can start prepping now.
This month’s influences highlight your independent spirit and ambition. If you are in a relationship, you will have to find creative ways to connect with your special someone. Freedom and intimacy aren’t always comfortable bedfellows, but nor are they mutually exclusive. In fact, you might deepen your commitment to your partner by expressing your needs. Your spiritual muscles can stretch and grow as you navigate ways to relate and maintain your sense of self.
Single Geminis, the Full Moon on June 9 highlights romantic possibilities. If you wholeheartedly desire love, keep yourself open and let go of any relationship stand-ins. If you find yourself saying, “I don’t think this is the one, but I’m having fun,” you may be distracting yourself from something real and lasting.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Can you imagine what a baby bird must feel like days before it breaks through its shell? Cramped? Uncomfortable? But still cozy and warm? Think of this image at the beginning of the month, especially if you feel restless or ready for a change. You could be giving life to a new idea, trying to have a baby, starting a work project, or making a significant life change. Anything “hatching” anew in your life needs a little more incubation time.
When the Sun enters your sign on June 20, at the Summer Solstice, we reach our second pivotal activity point in 2017, with the Sun’s ingress into a cardinal sign. With each Cardinal Ingress (March 20, June 20, September 22, and December 21), we receive a burst dynamic energy. We can either drive our goals to another level or course correct, turning in a different direction. By the Summer Solstice, you will be ready to rock and roll.
Mars enters your sign on June 4, animating your competitive drive and ambition. This is a great month to look for a job or secure new business clients. You might have to work at it, but your determination will pay off, especially on June 20.
Give yourself a little TLC this month, and your health will thank you. Do you need to relax and de-stress? Your body may have more sensitivities to foods and allergens than usual. Consider any ailment a temporary condition, and it may be a good time for a detox, or at the very least, a spa day.
Mars in your sign after June 4 fires up passion. If you are in a relationship, think of this as a honeymoon phase and indulge those more carnal desires. You might want to find ways to release some of that energy if you are single (with no real prospects), like dancing or socializing with friends. Venus in compatible Taurus expands your ability to meet new people, but you will have to reach beyond your comfort zone to connect.
The Full Moon on June 9 offers powerful influences for communicating heartfelt desires and fears. It is finally safe to trust.
Leo (July 23-August 22): Deep in the heart of every Leo burns a strong desire for self-expression. Whether you sing, write, paint, speak up for a cause, do hair and makeup, decorate your living room, launch a business, parent a child, act on stage, teach, etc., your soul needs creative outlets. If you deny yourself this need, you experience spiritual suffering. This month, do not start any project with outcomes in mind. Ask yourself, “What does my soul want to say?” Your soul is much more sensible than your mind, which thinks of reasons why you shouldn’t do what you want to do. (I don’t have time… It won’t make money…. Everyone else is doing it… I’m not good enough.) Stop second guessing yourself. Take a cue from Nike and just do it.
At the beginning of the month, your social calendar fills up. Make the most of the activity, no matter how much you want to stay at home and relax. Get out and play! It’s good for your spirit. June is a great month for networking, meeting new friends, and gathering with people who support similar causes. Art and cultural events can boost your creative spark, especially around the time of the Full Moon on June 9.
On June 23, the New Moon in your fifth house is excellent for planting seeds of all kinds. If you have been trying to start a family, you could receive good news. If you have been gardening, you could see new life in your yard.
On Jun 18, you may have to make a difficult decision regarding an issue with a friend or colleague. Before jumping to conclusions, pray and meditate on the situation. You do not have to see things in black and white, try to understand all sides of the situation.
In love, this month features growth and commitment. After June 20, you might reevaluate your current relationship status. By looking at the past, you can better discern your path moving ahead for the future. You are so loyal to your loved ones, but you may have become frustrated by a seeming lack of reciprocity. Ask for what you want, and test the waters. See if things can change.
Virgo (August 23-September 22): Discernment is one of your spiritual gifts. You innately pull toward beauty and elegance, and you would never waste your time with inauthentic people. You try to avoid drama whenever possible. Even your food choices lean toward the pure and healthy. So, in those rare instances when you struggle to make a decision, your world feels off kilter. Several major changes may have happened all at one time. Or perhaps life circumstances hurried you toward a crossroad. This month, you can regain balance and stability by deepening your spiritual practice and taking time out of work to feed your creative side.
Your career endeavors present you with opportunities for visibility early this month, especially on June 4. This is an excellent time to hire someone to help you build an audience for your work or promote your business. Move through any internal resistance or fear by deepening your sense of purpose.
A few minor challenges within your home on June 9 will smooth out in time. By June 20, you will have expanded perspective. Take deep breaths, and find ways to get out into nature for grounding and relaxation. If you can, spend time by the water early in the month. Water, a conductor of electricity, enhances your creative energy.
Mars moves into compatible Cancer on June 4. This influence energizes your desire for relationships of all kinds. Soulful conversations could lead to inspired action. New friends who enter into your life at this time play important roles. If you are single and looking for love, you could connect with someone in a way that feels fated and karmic. While you might need more information about the relationship potential, this heart-opening is a sign of things to come.
For those of you in a relationship, this month’s influences strengthen your commitment. You might have to overcome some tests of faith, but if your relationship is healthy, you will experience new levels of passion.
Libra (September 23-October 22): When the cabin doors close, and the plane prepares to take off, you can’t turn around. You have committed – you’re moving toward a new destination. This month, the Summer Solstice marks the second Cardinal Ingress of the year as the Sun moves into Cancer. With each Cardinal sign ingress (March 20, June 20, September 22, and December 21), we experience movement in our lives – a turning of the wheel and the invitation to evolve. The intentions you set at the beginning of the year have momentum, and there is no turning back! Regardless of how distracted you may have become or how distant those goals seem, you started a journey, and you will arrive at a destination. Your choices this month matter; you have no time to waste. So, spend time with people who feed your spirit and engage in activities that promote your long-term goals.
Summer travel plans could lead to new adventures. If you have a journey planned, go with the flow. Relax and enjoy the experience, allowing magic to happen. Follow synchronicity, especially if you get lost.
With Jupiter in your sign, this is a time of personal expansion. The universe may have given you a test of faith, but you passed with flying colors. In fact, you might be feeling a bit more optimistic than usual, especially when it comes to your physical needs, like your diet and exercise routine. If you have postponed any health-related activities, you can get back on track this month. Find an enjoyable physical outlet, and find a workout partner to make it a social one as well, especially around June 9.
From June 20-30, you could receive recognition for professional successes. Are you ready to step up on stage and accept your award? If you’re reading this and thinking this message doesn’t apply to you, then you might consider finding ways to showcase your work to attract the right kind of attention. For example, spruce up your website or update your profile pics. Embrace your inner rock star, especially if you work independently or in a creative field. Use this month’s momentum to shine on!
Nostalgia can be intoxicating. Remember your first love? Or your first heartbreak? The past can draw you into itself like a vortex, but dwelling on bygones can hurt your current romantic outlook. It’s time to let go of the past and say goodbye to the one that got away. You can experience deep love, bur first, radically accept your past choices. Take a deep breath and truly appreciate this moment in time. Love can be complex, and all choices you made have validity, no matter the outcome.
From June 19-24, you will have the clarity to make major relationship decisions. Until then, journal any thoughts and feelings that come up for you.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): With summer in full gear, you may have a bit of wanderlust this month, Scorpio. If you can’t feasibly get out and travel, then at least allow your mind wander. Do you have unfulfilled dreams? Creative ideas to explore? Books you’d like to read? Sometimes, a lack of focus isn’t a sign of slacking so much as it is your soul’s call for relaxation. When you still your mind, you can allow events to unfold as part of a co-creative process. If you can’t concentrate on work because you want to lie on the beach, then give into the urge long enough to relax. That’s when the magic happens; when you create internal space, you can hear divine wisdom and inspiration. You hear answers and gain perspective about your life. Invite a little magic in this month, especially at the Full Moon on June 9.
If you can take an adventure, you can plan a getaway for some time after June 21. Your soul will thank you for the opportunity to see new landscapes and explore a different terrain. If financial concerns deter you from making the commitment to go, find creative ways to restructure your budget or ideas for how to earn more money. Of all the signs of the Zodiac, yours is perhaps the best at manifesting money from out of thin air. Use your intuition to lead you in discovering income sources you never imagined possible.
Powerful spiritual awakenings can happen in your everyday life. You do not need to go on retreat or sit in a lotus position until your legs fall asleep. Some of your greatest aha moments probably happened in the shower or driving to work. The voice of the divine can communicate in subtle ways, like through dreams, intuitive hits, or even through signs and symbols in your environment. To catch those messages, attune yourself through daily practice. Even if you start your day with a simple intention, like:
I allow myself to receive guidance in both subtle and obvious ways all day long.
Then, at the end of the day, write down three specific signs or messages you received. For example, let’s say you are online and you see an ad pop up to the left of your screen for a book you’ve heard about from friends. That’s a sign. Or maybe you see a penny on the sidewalk, and you had been thinking about a loved one who has passed in spirit. That penny could be a sign that your loved one is with you. When something grabs your attention like that, pause and listen to your intuition.
Romance is a definite highlight of your month. Venus shines her light on your relationship. If you are single, you might have a chance encounter when you least expect it. Listen to the stirrings of your heart for clues. You are moving in the right direction toward real, lasting love. If you are involved in a relationship, find time to connect with your partner. Passion is at an all-time high, and this month could feel like a total honeymoon.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): I’m not going to beat around the bush, Sagittarius. June is a big month for you. Like huge. Like “it’s time to carpe diem and live your life NOW”…big. If you aren’t living your authentic purpose or you’ve been too comfortable in your life to make changes, you could get a Divine wake-up call.
Each year, we start a new cycle at our birthdays. That moment when the sun returns to the same astrological degree it was at the time of your birth is called a Solar Return. At the half-year mark, the Universe shines a light on the biggest themes of your year. Your solar cycle reaches a culmination point this month, and the universe could offer new information about your life path. Here’s what’s cool: You don’t have to do anything special or go out of your way to seek a spiritual guru to get direction. It’s all within yourself. Everything you’re looking for is already within you. Your intuition will guide you. You just need to find ways to deepen your connection and then trust its delivery of truth.
For many Sagittarians, nature provides the sanctuary needed to connect within. Your version of meditation may be hiking up a rocky hillside, as opposed to sitting in lotus position on a pillow. Give into it. There is no wrong way to connect with source energy. You’re a fire sign, after all. So, if you want to carpe diem and live this month to the fullest, take a hike, spend time on the water in a boat, camp underneath the stars, work in your garden, and unplug from technology.
Take advantage of the energy of this month and promote your business. This is an excellent time to recruit new employees (if you are in a hiring position) or develop professional alliances. You might have to work harder than you want during summertime, but it will pay off in the end. Keep focused on your long-term goals. Keep reaching new heights.
Now, let’s talk about your love life, a positive feature for June. You may have opposing wants when it comes to relationships. The desire for passionate connection might conflict with the craving for freedom. This contrast could pull you in different directions: Towards and away from love at the same time. This is especially pronounced when on a family vacation or when your relationship is about to move to a new level of commitment, like moving in together or becoming engaged. If your inner voice tries to talk you out of stepping all in, find ways to heal from the past. Negotiate with your fears, and do not let them win! If you are single and looking for love, reach out to friends and ask this question: “Tell me honestly, do you think I am 100% open to being in love?” Your best friends will tell you the truth. Take it in as guidance for how to do things better.
Now, for the juicy part. Passion. The Full Moon on June 9 highlights all kinds of romantic possibilities. Let your inner judge have the night off and play!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Life changes fast, doesn’t it? You think things are going one way, and then life throws you a curveball! You weren’t expecting that, were you? Perhaps you have just encountered one of these instances. Or maybe sudden change is your biggest fear. (Yikes!) With Saturn as your ruling planet, you need stability in your life and could choose security over passion when making decisions. If you do this too much, though, you eventually feel stuck (thank you, Saturn). This month, you can fix any stuckness, especially on June 20, when the summer solstice launches a new cardinal phase of astrological activity. Any cardinal ingress (March 20, June 20, September 22, December 21), invites us to initiate change in our lives, either to start a new beginning or to course correct an existing path. Up to that point, you have time to figure out the details of any change you want to make. You can assess your life circumstances and make plans for the future.
Work hard and play hard. With Jupiter shining in your career sector, you have opportunities for recognition and reward. Are you up for a promotion? You might receive good news early in the month, especially around June 3. After June 9, you could hear back from unresponsive business associates and clients. Wait until after June 20 to nudge anyone about pending deals or sales.
If you feel restless in your current job and want to make a career change, think creatively. You have more options than you even considered. A life coach could help you strategize your overall mission; an agent can open doors. Why not invest in your future?
Summer schedules lighten up, and you might plan travels with loved ones. After June 21, your focus shifts from tasks and to-do lists to your personal life. You’re going to want to connect. June is an excellent month to get away with your special someone, and preferably somewhere you can unplug and relax.
If you are single, Venus in complimentary Taurus shines her light in your direction after June 6. Under this influence, you feel sexier, more attractive. (It’s a good time to update your look, too, by the way.) When you feel good about yourself, you magnetize attention from others. So, yeah, you could meet someone special. On June 23, the New Moon in Cancer highlights romance and passion. If you are in a relationship, the planetary heat from Mars, the Sun, and Moon fire up your sex life.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): Beach towel? Check. Cold beverage? Check. Summer reading? Check. Good friends for conversation? Check. What more do you need, Aquarius? Before you start creating a list in your head, stop! If you want to maximize your creative energy, give your mind a break. Give yourSELF a break. Even if it’s just one day off, indulge. And I only write this because you have so much creative energy right now- the kind that inspires masterpiece paintings, bestselling novels, innovative tech products, and grassroots advocacy campaigns. There is nothing you can’t dream and do right now.
On June 6, Mercury, the planet of ideas and thoughts, moves into friendly Gemini, inspiring you with new ideas for how to solve complicated problems or work challenges. Your mind stretches open to new levels. So, this is an excellent time to learn a new skill or take a certification course, but be wise with how you spend your time and energy. Balance the activities that foster your professional life with those that feed your soul. Focus on activities that support your long-term goals and personal passions.
If you are fortunate enough to have children in your life, you can find fun and creative ways to connect with them this month. Activities like science classes, art camps, picnics, or sports events, create lasting memories and deep, loving connections. This is especially true on June 9, when the Full Moon highlights your playful side. Don’t you need to have fun now that the hectic schedule has slowed down? Of course! So, make enjoyment your keyword all month long.
Now, let’s talk about your love life. Are you married? Or involved in a committed relationship? If so, you might have to think outside the box to keep the romance alive from time to time. Break free from routine; plan a spontaneous getaway to a remote destination. Though you might favor your intellectual, mental side, you still have a soft spot for romance. If you are single, good for you! Relax and enjoy your solo time. In a few months, that could all change (wink, wink).
Pisces (February 19-March 20):
“I’m in the mood for love
Simply because you’re near me.
Funny, but when you’re near me
I’m in the mood for love.”
If you don’t know this song, do yourself a favor and google Julie London’s version of “I’m in the Mood for Love.” If you do know the song, then maybe it’s playing in your head as you read this horoscope. (I hope so!) Make it your theme song for the month. This month, you feel warm, gooey, sentimental, sweet, and relaxed, Pisces. Love big this month; give generously to those people who mean the most to you. Open and expand your heart, releasing fear and anxiety. All that love will come back to you tenfold.
The best way to attract love is to be love— to exude that frequency. The more anxious you feel about not having love, the more you separate yourself from the very thing you want. So, be love, love big, and spend time with people you love. If you are in a relationship, take a vacation from your worries. Relationships are fluid, after all, and people do change. Focus on all the positive aspects of your partner. If your romance has been a bit rocky, use this month to keep working on yourself. Through your growth and personal evolution, your relationship will organically shift. Give it time, and you will soon gain the wisdom needed to discern next steps. You don’t have to have all the answers at this moment.
Being a water sign, you will want to spend as much time enjoying the pool, beach, or lake, this month. Bask in the sun and play near the water. Relaxation inspires creativity, which you’ll need to solve problems, personally and professionally. After June 20, your creativity skyrockets to new levels. This is a favorable time to take up a passion project or launch a new enterprise. On June 23, the New Moon signifies a major turning point and propels you into a highly fertile period, where anything could happen. If you have been thinking about starting a family, consider this a message of Divine support for your dreams.
Your home and family need your full attention and presence this month. On a spiritual level, acts of service can help your heart’s expansion process, which will deepen your intuitive connection to the divine. Love the little, the big, and even the 4-legged ones in your life.
Aries (March 21-April 19): If your month were a book, it would have two distinct chapters: June 1-20 and June 20-30.
Chapter 1: Summertime Fun
Your schedule eases up a little, and you can breathe a sigh of relief as life calms down. Relaxation is your absolute need, especially if the past few months have been hectic. (Your horoscope suggests they have been action-packed.) You might want to catch up on some summer reading or take a vacation. Visit distant family or friends early in the month, when the astrological influences favor travel. Your plans can come together seamlessly. Allow yourself to go with the flow. Ahh…fun. You might even pick up a light summer read to enjoy in your downtime. (I recommend something slightly risqué to speed up your heart rate and pique your imagination.)
You will want to make the most of this relaxed time early in the month because, after June 20, everything changes.
Chapter 2: Change in the Air
After June 20, your life circumstances could pull you in different directions. Don’t worry; it’s all for the greater good! You love your family, but they might need more of your time and energy. Also, home-related projects could take longer than expected, pulling you away from work. The New Moon on June 23 signifies a new beginning for you, like a move or home renovation project. While this is exciting, the changes could stir up some stress at home.
If you feel any frustration throughout this month, try to see the bigger picture. Your life advances and evolves powerfully at this time, and you gain clarity about your spiritual/soul purpose.
You have taken giant steps forward on your path. Pat yourself on the back for your accomplishments! You’ve juggled work projects, supported your loved ones, learned new skills, experienced critical milestones, and moved mountains with your faith alone.
Now, your soul craves emotional connection. Love passionately, boldly, and willingly, Aries. Let past hurts and heartbreaks heal. You have entered a whole new phase of life, and you no longer have to struggle for love. You can finally receive its goodness.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Do you have travel plans this month? If not, you might want to pack a bag, load up the car, and head off for an adventure. Nothing stimulates your mind or soothes your spirit like beauty and sensual delights of sight, smell, sound, taste, and touch. With trees and flowers in full bloom, lush landscapes inspire your inner artist. If you go, make the journey your destination, and experience the magic of the natural world.
Your creative energy reaches a new height this month, and you might take a painting class or find a workshop to help you express your deeper voice. After June 20, your mind easily opens to mastering new skills.
You might have opportunities for professional advancement early in the month. Access courage and ask for a raise or promotion. Finances favor prominently in your horoscope, and you could consider making a real estate or other investment. Consult with your advisors to understand the possibilities. For extra inspiration, you might want to read author Pam Grout’s book, “Thank & Grow Rich: A 30-Day Experiment in Shameless Gratitude and Unabashed Joy,” and do each of the exercises to generate some positive law-of-attraction vibes. The Full Moon on June 9 illuminates your earning potential. Think creatively about your finances, and you could come up with a million-dollar idea.
Venus enters your sign on June 6, and you will be looking good! This influence is favorable for receiving a makeover or undergoing a cosmetic procedure. When you feel good about yourself, you exude beauty.
Venus in your sign also shines some light on your love life. Venus’s deeper themes emphasize personal value and self-worth. Boost your confidence to attract the love you want. This planet of love is your planetary ruler; you were not meant to have unfulfilling relationships. Therefore, let go of any disappointing or unsatisfying attractions. Wait for one who makes you feel like a king or queen. If your person gives you that attention, then repay the favor this month. The passion between you will be off the charts.
