Spiritual advisors and astrologers ‘round the world have told us that 2020 will be a big year full of change. The planets don’t lie; we’re undergoing massive transformation, and right now we’re in the thick of it, friends. June brings with it eclipse season, kicking it off with a lunar eclipse on the 5th and a solar eclipse on the 20th. Emotions will run high — individually and collectively. And if that’s not enough, Mercury goes retrograde on the 18th, bringing its usual antics: misunderstandings, miscommunication, and possible missed connections. Finally, on the 25th, Venus ends its retrograde, but that means June will continue to bring our relationship issues to the forefront of our awareness. Now’s the time to review your needs, desires, and work on improving your relationship issues and patterns and strive to change them if they’re not serving you in a healthy way.
Buckle up! This is a big month. And not just because there will be virtual Pride events for all of us to partake in! Stand together with your fellow queers, particularly those who need solidarity and support now more than ever. Life is tough right now, loves, but together, we’re tougher.
It’s not necessarily the most comfortable thing for you to do, but you’re going to be all up in your feelings this month. You’ll be feeling particularly compassionate for others, but it’s up to you which direction you want to take all of these feels, dear Aries. Listen to your heart. Sometimes the sticking points that keep coming up are exactly what you need to work on. Where do you feel stuck? Resentful? Worried? Channel your energy that you’d usually use giving advice to others to nourish yourself right now, as much as you do them. Keep in mind: Boundaries are important. Look at where it’s time to make changes, and then take the baby steps to do exactly that to create a balanced emotional life for yourself.
Your authenticity and wisdom are needed more than ever, Taurus. This month brings with it the opportunity to deepen your most meaningful relationships and increase the intimacy with the ones you care about most. Express yourself in ways that stretch you out of your comfort zone and allow yourself to be vulnerable, even when it’s hard. Honour yourself and your truth, and don’t push off the difficult conversations you need to have. Now is not the time to be holding back or stifling yourself. Identify the ways in which you can develop this emotional closeness with your loved ones and start focusing your energy on taking action to do so.
It’s all too easy for you to say “yes” to everything you’re invited to, dear Gemini, but now is not the time. This is your month to take inventory on what you expect from yourself and the people in your life. The Mercury retrograde is a perfect opportunity for you to better understand yourself and what you want out of life and the relationships you have with others. Don’t bite off more than you can chew this month. It’s okay to say “no” sometimes, so you don’t then have to flake out on plans or promises. Clarity about what and who is most important to you is on the horizon. What are you doing that you know isn’t good for you, but you consistently do it anyway? Time to cut it out and say no when you need to.
The whole foundation that you’ve rested your laurels on may feel like it’s shaking this month, Cancer. With so much change going on in the world, you might be wondering how much more you can take. Well, buckle up, love. Your old ideals of what a ‘good life’ was for you will likely be rocked a little this month. If you find yourself looking for a new challenge or a new goal to set your sights on, go for it! You’re allowed to dream and dream big. Don’t put limitations on your dreams and goals. Think about the new foundation you want to lay in your life and then plan how you can spend your summer to start building it.
Be mindful of how you’re communicating with others this month, Leo. Be as direct and as honest as possible and ask the same of others. Mixed messages and crossed wires may cause some communication snafus, so it’s important to be clear. Your written word, in particular, may be misunderstood, so be neutral and a good listener rather than always doling out your advice & wisdom. Move conversations to in-person or on the phone whenever possible. Set a goal to have a drama-free month, because emotions are going to be running high, and overreactions are almost promised. Give yourself time to really think about things before you respond to anyone.
If you’re feeling out of sorts this month, Virgo, know you are not alone. In fact, know that it is written in the stars for this to happen this month. There are huge cosmic shifts underway, and you and your place in this world are a part of it. You might feel a hot mess one moment and wholly peaceful the next. You’re outgrowing some of your insecurities and stepping into a stronger, happier version of yourself. That doesn’t come without its fair share of growing pains, of course. Build a strong relationship with yourself right now. Ask yourself what you really want, and go for it.
Your intuition is the bomb this month, Libra! Don’t overthink things and don’t consult your group text when you’re doubting your gut feeling — just stay clear enough to receive the message your body is giving you. It’s always good to weigh your options but don’t over analyze every detail. Spontaneity is important, too. What makes you hesitate? Why do you always seek the advice and approval of others? What does outside validation really get you? It’s time to start stepping into your own power and trusting yourself. Getting advice from others is valuable at times, absolutely, but it isn’t always necessary. Trust yourself. You’re wise and resilient and wonderful.
Emotions are going to run a little deeper for you this month, Scorpio. The usual steely exterior you have may be thinned a bit. It’s okay to lean on the people you’re closest to. Showing vulnerability is a sign of strength, after all, so let your guard down and open up to someone you trust. This month will be one that provides plenty of opportunity for slower moments where you can go within to do some soul-searching. You’ve been pushing yourself for long enough; let yourself rest. Make an effort to do something each day for no other reason than it brings you joy. Reach for your creature comforts. Take a day that walks you down memory lane. And for heaven’s sake, go easy on yourself.
Your life is changing, Sagittarius, and it comes at a perfect time as you’re hankering for some fresh energy and a faster pace. But the tough thing is, this change can’t be controlled. You’ve gotta go with the flow of what life brings you this month. There’s a lot going on behind the planetary scenes that are making way for a big transformation in your life. Surrender to the unknown and stay positive. You’re naturally great at seeing the big picture. Trust that whatever changes come your way are your next big adventure. If you struggle to surrender, do something each day to let yourself sit with that discomfort: meditation, talking to a friend, and journaling are all good outlets.
Change is afoot, but these are not overnight, quick changes. They’re a slow slog and can sometimes feel overwhelming, even for a hard worker like you, Capricorn. There are no shortcuts to be made, no matter how much you may wish for them. Let go of things that no longer serve you, including your own habits that are holding you back. Let go of analyzing absolutely everything others do and focus on yourself. Where do you need to practice patience in your life? This month may be a big test of your patience, so don’t forget to extend grace to yourself and others, even when you feel like blowing your top. The planets promise the changes coming are all for the best for you; it’s just going to take time.
Take a look back at how far you’ve come, Aquarius. This month is all about reflecting on your past so you can look ahead. You have the opportunity to look at how much growth you’ve experienced over the past year while also looking ahead to what the future will bring. Dig deep and really reflect on all of your inner growth. Now would be a great time for a bullet journal for reflecting. What can you learn from your past that will help you be the person you want to be tomorrow? What would you say to your younger self if you could? Spend some time giving attention to your inner child. She could use the healing, and it’ll help lift you up for a brighter tomorrow.
Life can feel particularly heavy right now, and you’re probably yearning to escape reality more than ever, sweet Pisces. Just be careful not to forget about your responsibilities. Self-care is important, but too much “self-care” in the form of escapism can be dangerous in and of itself. Look for order in the chaos that is life right now. Pay attention to the details so that the path ahead becomes clearer. The thing is, you’re going to have to dig deep for motivation to get things done, but you will not regret it when you do! Make time in your daily schedule to do the tasks you’ve been avoiding. Reward yourself if you have to but actually do it! One day at a time.
