Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
First of all, let me wish you a happiest birthday!! I hope your birth month is filled with miracles, surprises, and wonder.
Now I would like to discuss a few other matters. Namely, let’s talk about that feistiness that seems to be taking over your energetic system. The restlessness that’s shaking up your world is merely an indicator of major changes on the horizon. Allow your passion to guide you through the darkness of the unknown. Move with grace into unchartered territories, and then you will dance through those internal shifts that will create space for the manifestation of your goals.
Professionally, this is a dynamic, creative time for you. Even though your ruling planet (Mercury) is retrograde until June 11, you may feel inspired by new ideas. This is especially pronounced on June 10, when an “Aha” moment gives you the answer you need to move ahead with a project or proposal. Trust yourself, and try not to be dissuaded by others’ skeptical advice. On June 16, the New Moon in your sign may introduce a new client or business partner. This strategic collaboration has success written all over it.
Writing and instruction are pronounced all month. You may find yourself mentoring or guiding others. Go ahead and show off your keen intellect!
In relationships, commitment is your key word. Commit to you first, and you won’t feel the influence of any hidden fears. The Full Moon on June 2 illuminates the possibility of taking your relationship to the next level. If you are single, you may uncover a subconscious resistance that could be pulling you away from the manifestation of a romantic partnership. You are working through your emotional wounds, evolving beautifully. Let love surprise you. You might just hear back from a special someone from your past in the early part of the month, when Venus enters compatible Leo on June 5. This is a time of healing and rediscovery.
Passion is another key word, and you may have some delightful opportunities to play, especially through your travels! You’ll feel passion reach a peak on June 14. Give into the sensations. Enjoy!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22):
No one can underestimate your intuition, Cancer! This month, it will help you access the awareness you need to navigate the unpredictable terrain of your subconscious mind. With these new interior landscapes to explore, you may feel a bit introspective until the Sun enters your sign on the 21st. You are a sponge for the emotions of others, especially those closest to you, with your true gift for empathy. However, at times this month, you may feel a bit off center because of these external influences. Take time each day to check in with your feelings, and nurture yourself in whatever ways you can.
On June 5, Venus, the planet that highlights personal resources, moves into your solar second house, signaling a time of enhanced financial possibilities. This will be pronounced in the end of the month, especially June 30. New professional opportunities may open up for you during this time. If you have been thinking about making a job change, this is nicely represented from June 21 through the end of the month.
Attend to your health in the beginning of the month. You may decide to start a new diet or experiment with a new workout routine. Consider making appointments for preventative check-ups with your physician or holistic practitioner. Food allergies may be the culprit behind some of those frustrating sinus or bronchial upsets. Get tested to get to the root of any issues that arise. Also, this is a great time to switch up your supplements, especially those that affect your digestion.
In matters of the heart, Cancer, Saturn moves back into Scorpio on June 14. This is a great time to deepen your romantic commitment, and we may be hearing wedding bells in the very near future! If you are single, consider reading the book Calling in the One by Katherine Woodward Thomas to prepare yourself for a lasting relationship. All of that deep personal digging will pay off after June 24, when a spark of a connection may lead to more.
Leo (July 23 – August 22):
Luck and love are your two key words this month, Leo! Your horoscope is by far one of the most exciting this month. Doesn’t it feel great to be number one? You may receive an unexpected opportunity that thrusts you into the spotlight, especially on June 8. Any chance encounters experienced early in the month may prove to be significant door openers after June 22, your luckiest day of the month.
Deepened friendships and soulful connections inspire your creativity. You want to sing, dance, act, and express yourself! Consider taking an art class. The Full Moon on June 2 urges you out of your comfort zone. You may even explore the notion of taking an improve workshop. You may discover a hidden talent, and you’ll have fun in the process! The more joy you can bring into your life, the more you will align yourself to positive manifestations. Your dreams really can come true. Go out and play to make that happen!
This may mean taking a break from your routine. Some of you have summer travel plans. Yours is a sign ruled by the Sun, and soaking up a little Vitamin D while lounging on a sandy shore will restore your health and vitality. If you have recently experienced a lot of shifts and changes in your life, you will need a getaway.
Professionally, this month highlights networking. Call your agent or manager, and ask to schedule meetings in the beginning of the month, after June 5. However, don’t sign any new contracts or make any major career decisions until after June 11, unless you are completing negotiations that have been ongoing for several months. Observe all fine print and minute details. Launch new projects or submit proposals for new business after the extremely favorable New Moon on June 16. You’ve got a little extra energy and enthusiasm to ensure success.
Your heart is open…so are your lower chakras. As a result, you may find yourself thrust into an exciting romantic adventure. Avoid unnecessary drama, though. Maintain your integrity by resisting any dalliance with an unavailable someone, as tempting as it may seem. For those of you who are involved, consider a romantic getaway in the beginning of the month, from June 5-9. It could spark dialogue about taking your relationship to the next level. I am seeing a sparkling gem in your near future, metaphorically and literally.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
In my practice, I see a curious phenomenon. Clients access true co-creative power, manifesting magic in their lives. It is awesome in the literal sense of the word. Spiritual shifts can make seemingly impossible circumstances reach fruition. Then, suddenly, fear, worry, and doubt arise from the subconscious. This leads to a cycle of expansion and contraction, bigness and smallness. Own your power, Virgo. It is your creative gift, an offering to the world, and you will make a difference in the lives of others. When fear, worry, and doubt creep into your mind, consider a playful approach. Use your imagination.
Professionally, doors are opening for you. You have been downloaded with new insights to help direct your course toward success. However, your ruling planet, Mercury, is still in retrograde until June 11. Therefore, you may feel a sense of restlessness in trying to push forward any new projects. Perhaps you are not getting prompt responses from some of your contacts. Or delays in production may lead to a revised schedule. Go with the flow. After the Summer Solstice on June 21, you will see more clearly the path you need to follow. If you’re seeking a job right now, expect good news with the Full Moon on June 2. However, that new opportunity may require you to adjust priorities. Put your future first.
Throughout the month, you might feel as if others just don’t get what you’re trying to communicate. Realize your ideas may be ahead of their time. Communication mishaps can all be smoothed out. Try to see the big picture, and let some of the details work themselves out.
You may have felt a bit romantic and dreamy lately. Your love interest feels a bit elusive, otherworldly. Stay in dreamlike wonder, and a relationship might manifest after the 24th. For those of you in relationships, some conflicts could arise throughout the month, especially on June 14. Fighting will be a futile effort. It’s best to let go of any need to be right. Look at the situation with objectivity, and be gentle with your partner. Try to see things from his or her perspective to expand your own. By June 24, you will have a renewed commitment and a passionate reconnection.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
Travel and adventure lead you out of your comfort zone this month and inspire deep spiritual exploration. Your worldview is about to change exponentially, but it requires trust. Let go of expectations, and the Universe will pleasantly surprise you. Allow others to cater to your needs, releasing any need you may have to control outcomes. Your openness will lead to new friendships, creative ideas, and maybe even a little surprise summer romance!
Writing and publishing are highlighted this month. If you are an author looking for an agent or submitting manuscripts for publishing consideration, expect good news on June 9 or 10, when a little luck helps manifest your hard-earned goal. That message is also relevant for anyone who has sales prospects, new business proposals, or other professional pursuits pending.
Mercury is the planet of communication, and you may have recently had some delayed responses you’re your contacts. After June 11, Mercury moves forward again, stationing direct. After that, the time is right for moving forward with those endeavors. Expect good news with the New Moon on June 16.
Financial matters may be up for you this month, as Saturn saunters back into Scorpio and your solar second house on June 14. You had two and a half years of intense focus on money. Then, you received a brief break. Now, you have the opportunity to revisit some of those themes. What have you learned? What changes do you still need to make?
Relationships are a bit of a whirlwind this month, Libra. Keep things light and playful under the airy influence of the Gemini Sun. On June 6, Venus, your ruling planet, moves into fiery Leo. A friendship may evolve into something deeper under this influence. Remain open to the possibilities!
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
Everyone’s playing but you this month…or so it seems. It can feel frustrating to be stuck indoors during the gorgeous days in between spring and summer. However, your professional life has so much activity right now that time off seems impossible. Make the most of the momentum. Seize the opportunities presented before you. There could be more in store for you as the summer unfolds. Your efforts now will be richly rewarded.
To be quite specific, you have reached a peak of your career. As a result, you may have been welcomed into a professional organization; might have received public recognition; or perhaps were offered a significant promotion or raise. The success led to more responsibility, though, and you did not anticipate the workload. Take one day at a time, one project at a time. Also, try to clear your schedule of any unnecessary activities.
Mercury, the planet of communication, has been in retrograde since May 18. As a result, you could have had some mishaps in your interactions with others. Yours is a fixed sign, which means you may not like to let go of your perspective in a conflictual situation. This is not ultimately a winning approach because it fosters defensiveness. Rather, try sweetness and tenderness. Draw your adversary closer through kindness, and then he or she will open to understanding your perspective.
After June 14, you may want to revisit your long-term investments and finances. Try not to make any major changes until June 22. Then, pull the trigger. You have a little luck backing those decisions. Likewise, if you are purchasing or refinancing a home, avoid making major moves until after June 16. The New Moon highlights your entire financial portfolio, and it’s a good time to make a change.
In your love life, Scorpio, you have come to understand the word “intimacy” in whole new ways. It isn’t always easy to be vulnerable and to allow your soft underbelly to show. Just remember, your openness gives you power. It tugs at the heartstrings of your special someone, bringing you closer together. This month, your commitment deepens beyond your wildest expectations.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
Your whole life has been in flux, Sagittarius. This month signals adventure! An opportunity for a long-distance journey arises unexpectedly around June 8-10. What luck! Leap forward into adventure, just like a frog hops from one lily pad to the next. I use that metaphor specifically because frogs symbolize “flow,” and that’s going to be your key word for the next thirty days. There is little in life you can control, after all. Your strength as a mutable sign lies in your agility—your flexibility.
Journeys to visit distant relatives remind you of your history. Reconnect with your past, exploring the roots of your family tree, to foster deep ancestral healing. This will lead to significant inner growth. Clear up confusion in the beginning of the month, and you’ll gain clarity with the New Moon on June 16. You may have to do a bit of grieving, but this will only release you from the past. After all of this introspective work, you can jump into your future, unfettered by fear.
Professionally, this is a great time to forge partnerships, especially after Mercury stations direct on June 11. Wait a few days to recalibrate, and then sign those pending deals. If you work in a creative profession, this is also a great time to secure an agent or manager. Likewise, you might consider renegotiating the terms of your contract.
On June 14, you may feel a bit feisty. Restlessness is a great teacher because the discomfort can motivate change in your life. Angst alerts you to life circumstances that need to change. You do not have to cut and run. Look for the source of the stuckness, and then address those core issues.
No June gloom for you, Sagittarius. Your love life is quite steamy! This is especially true after June 5, when Venus, the planet of love, moves into compatible Leo. On June 24, its conjunction with Jupiter means fireworks in your romantic affairs. Speaking of which, you may be tempted to play with an unexpected love interest early in the month. He or she may be someone from your past. Keep in mind that you’re more free-spirited than most signs. Reinforce the notion of “play” by keeping it light and fun. Mars in Airy Gemini means go out dancing, and wait until later this summer to rent the U-Haul.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):
You possess a brilliant presence, and the world sees your light. You may have the opportunity to shine this month; so, reserve a little you time to manifest those great dreams of yours. You might have felt a bit bogged down by the details of your life recently. Your schedule has started to fill with social obligations, meetings, and events. As a result, you may have been neglecting yourself. You can’t shine as brightly as possible if you aren’t taking care of you first.
Be impeccable with your health. Nurture your body by attending to your health needs. Rest, eat well, and exercise for optimal vitality. You might also consider pursuing any preventative check-ups at this time.
Salt water is the best cure for the doldrums as well as for health ailments. Spend a little time on the sandy shores of the beach this month if you can. You may even find a little creative inspiration.
Changes to your home environment are on the horizon, and they kick off with the New Moon on June 16. Tie up loose ends and finish past projects by June 11, when Mercury stations direct. This will allow you to have the space you need to make a new beginning.
I also recommend that you take time during the beginning of the month to clean out closets and donate unused or unwanted items to charity. You may even consider hiring a Feng Shui expert to revitalize your space. It will surprise you to realize how the symbolism of your home space reflects your life circumstances; likewise, you can make subtle changes and shifts in your space to change your life.
Your love life highlights partnership. Do you and your special have any power imbalances? If so, a few counseling sessions may be just what you need to heal and reset your relationship. Foster trust and connectivity. For you single Capricorns, the end of the month, right after the Solstice on June 21, offers positive potential. Sparks will fly after June 24!
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):
Have you been thinking about your past recently? You may have suddenly become aware of the subtle influences of your family, community, and culture on your expression of self. In what ways has your life become like a performance of what others expect of you? This month fosters your individuality, as you seek to strip away the layers of obligation and externally directed expectation. Allow your true light to shine. This may take the form of a writing project or creative endeavor. For others, this will be more of an internal soul-searching process.
New professional responsibilities offer both extra duties as well as financial rewards. You have a gift with words at this time, so choose yours carefully when soliciting extra support from those with the power to hold the purse strings. Your gift for diplomacy will prove useful as you negotiate those tough deals. Finish past business by June 11, when Mercury in Retrograde highlights your need for completion. Then, you can be ready to make new beginnings.
A little luck introduces a new relationship into your life right around June 8-June 9. This spark of connection could lead to brainstorming. The two of you might just find a solution to make real change in the world. Pay attention to all connections formed during the beginning of the month. Those individuals will play significant roles in your life as we move into the autumn months.
Restlessness may stir within you. Travel is a great way to quell the internal tension. Find a way to get out of town, even if it’s just for a day or two. A trip to the water will help you relieve stress from recent work pressures. Bring a special someone for a romantic adventure unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
Romance is a definite highlight for you this month. It’s time to reintroduce play into your partnership, especially if you both have felt stuck in routines or if your relationship has felt like all business. Be spontaneous, surprising your special someone with gifts, love letters, or date nights. This will help revive any relationship slump you may have felt. If you’re single, this is an excellent month to start a summer fling. At the New Moon on June 16, you’ll know for sure if it could lead to more. Just remain light, playful, and curious.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
In the beginning of the month, sudden and unexpected changes may lead you to move in new directions. Tides have turned, and you wouldn’t want to swim upstream. You are the most flexible and flowing of all the signs, and you have the agility to move in new directions when the Universe asks. This is a gift you possess, and unlike some of your fixed-sign friends (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius), you know how to let go with grace and ease. A new adventure is about to begin for you.
This month, you may want to attend to practical matters. Finish business, complete projects, and manage finances. Look at the structural systems of your life. Ensure that you have all details organized and arranged. In your professional life, any new systems of organization you implement (i.e. accounting systems, client management protocols, calendar apps, etc.) will help future business growth. That message comes with an important underlying message: You are stepping up the stairway to success, and you need to prepare for this growth by the Summer Solstice on June 21.
With all of the emphasis you have placed on business matters recently, your home and family may need a bit more attention than usual. Have you been avoiding intense conversations? If so, consider having those long talks after June 14, when things will feel lighter, calmer. That inner turbulence will have subsided, and you can find common ground. In the meantime, practice compassion in your relationships. You have a huge generous heart, and your goodness is contagious.
This is a highly romantic month for you, whether you’re single or involved. You and your special someone may want to take an escape in the beginning of the month, right after the Full Moon on June 2. This is a time to deepen any existing connection or maybe even spark a new one if you’re single. First, your heart chakra opens…and then the others will follow. Expect passion after June 24, when Mars enters the compatible sign of Cancer, signaling a steamy hot summer.
Aries (March 21 – April 19):
Mercury, the planet of communication, is retrograde up to June 11. Under normal circumstances, you have no trouble expressing yourself. You are self-assured, certain, and decisive in your speech. However, your usual courage of communication may be met with a little backlash during this retrograde period. People may not entirely understand what you have to say. Alternatively, you may be quick to speak without having the necessary facts to back up your claims. My advice to you this month: Listen more than you speak, and be gentle with your words.
Your home life is a source of joy and comfort in the beginning of the month, especially with the Full Moon on June 2. You may consider making some changes to your interior space after June 24. Add elements of color to symbolize the welcoming of more beauty in every aspect of your life. Family connections may also warm your heart. It’s a great month to strengthen some of those relationships. Make time to engage in long visits with your loved ones, especially the little ones in your life. This is especially true after June 21.
In business, this is a great month to practice a little self-promotion. Hire a social media manager or work on new messaging for any advertising you plan to do. After the 14th, you will attract an audience. On June 16, the New Moon highlights your public presence. This is especially beneficial for those of you who work in publishing, writing, film production, or other creative fields. On June 22, expect good news that may seem like the answer to a prayer or request you’ve made to the Universe.
Your romantic life is quite steamy this month! You may be surprised by unexpected passionate encounters. There may even be a special someone coming back into your life from the past. Allow your hearts to rekindle the bond you shared. You’ll know by June 24 whether or not it will last. For those of you who are in a relationship, take a romantic getaway in the beginning of the month. The Full Moon on June 2 stirs your sense of adventure.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20):
I’m going to put this bluntly, Taurus. You need to prioritize your budget and discern how to best spend the resources that are coming in at this time. You may have more abundance than usual, but that excess comes with responsibility. Consult with an accountant or financial planner to maximize all returns and keep your budget on track. Resist making any major purchases until after the New Moon on June 16.
Business ventures that have been on the backburner now receive the energetic green light. You may have felt unable to move forward with any new endeavor because of unfinished duties and obligations. Do yourself a favor and work hard for the next few weeks so that you’re ready for those new beginnings that will start to happen after the June 14. By August, you want to be prepared, as the doors of opportunity swing open for you.
You may have recently attracted a new group of friends into your life. These eccentric, creative individuals could inspire you to engage in your own creative work. Have you been writing or playing music? Have you wanted to paint or draw? If you’ve been feeling a creative slump, consider taking a class or workshop to stimulate some of those creative juices. The creative process is actually a highly spiritual one, and you may need to create something beautiful in order to reach a new stage of personal growth. This is especially true in the beginning of the month, around June 5.
In love, Saturn, the planet of commitment, is retrograde and moving back into your opposite sign of Scorpio on June 14. This may bring completion to a relationship that needs some sort of a finale. Have you been holding on to the past? If so, consider what you may be preventing from manifesting in your future. It’s time to let go, with grace and ease, and open your heart to new possibilities. For those of you in relationships, this is a great time to assess the state of your commitment. Do you want to take your partnership to the next level? If so, determine what fears may be delaying that commitment. This introspective exercise will help you clear any resistance and allow you to move forward into a new chapter of your connection.
