Eclipse season was a doozy, and we’re still reeling and recovering from the personal and collective chaos of last month. The good news is that June promises to be less emotionally intense, at least cosmically speaking. Mercury retrograde ends on June 3, so go ahead and revisit any unsigned contracts, unpolished work, and unfinished plans. The time to take action on your visionary ideas to make the world a better place comes after June 4 when Saturn — the planet of responsibility and stewardship — enters Aquarius.
Mercury returns to Gemini on June 13, making it easier to ask the questions weighing on your mind and express yourself clearly and confidently. The full moon in Sagittarius on June 14 presents the opportunity to shift your perspective and let go of your self-limiting thoughts. The summer solstice occurs on June 21, the same day the sun moves into emotional Cancer, marking the start of a deeply tender, sensitive season. When Venus moves into Gemini on June 22, a summer of adventure, conversation and fun truly begins.
The new moon in Cancer on June 28 is the perfect time to manifest authentic, intimate, and mutually-beneficial connections with new friends and lovers alike. Don’t be surprised if you shed some cathartic tears as we close out the month.

Take caution to avoid getting swept away in other people’s drama and feeling responsible for their well-being, Aries. Reconnect with the friends and family who mean the most to you, but don’t get too invested in heavy emotions that don’t belong to you. Instead, use this month’s energy to be honest with yourself and others about your emotional needs — it’ll help you let go of any confusion or sadness you’ve been hanging on to. The world is your oyster, and this is the perfect time to take a deep dive into the topics that have piqued your interest.
Time to reclaim your power, Taurus, but not in the way you might think. The false sense of security that being controlling provides is only hurting you, so consider how you can loosen up and let things flow. Take some time to do the things that make you feel most alive and joyful. You may enter a bit of a hermit phase mid-month, as you prioritize your emotional needs over meeting goals. Reflect on how you show up for yourself and know that sometimes, letting something or someone go is the best way to invite something better into your life.
You’re usually a pro at handling whatever Mercury retrograde throws your way, Gemini, but the eclipse season really made this past retrograde hit different. Oof. If you’re still reeling a little, remember you can’t pour from an empty cup. Prioritize your emotional needs over socializing. Get honest with yourself about the connections and relationships you have with others. Where can you show up as who you are? Where are you biting your tongue and neglecting your needs? Focus on yourself and by the end of the month, you’ll have some clarity about where — and with whom — you want to spend your time and energy.
Some emotional excavation is in order this month, Cancer. As past hurts and memories that have been weighing on you come to the surface, give yourself permission to let go and open your heart to healing. Step outside of your crabby shell (comfort zone) and be upfront about what you want and need from others. The end of the month presents an opportunity to reconnect with your loved ones; you’ll finally feel like people are making the effort to understand you and appreciate the ways you show up for them and the world.
If there ever was a time to make a big leap into the unknown, it is now, Leo. June presents the opportunity to summon up the courage to live out your dreams. Nothing is too big or too impossible, you just have to stay persistent. The ways you show up in relationships with others gets illuminated this month. Are you surrounding yourself with naysayers? Or people who share your vision, cheer you on and applaud your successes? It’s time to bridge the gap between the relationships you want to have and the relationships you do have.
You’ve spent a lot of time in recent weeks considering, well, everything. June most likely won’t be any different with your career progression at the forefront of your month. You’re in ‘reflection’ mode, contemplating everything from how you spend your money to how you spend your days. The good news is, luck is on your side and this is a good time to ask for what you need. The more succinct and direct you are, the better the outcome. Opportunities abound, so refine your most lofty intentions and goals with this month’s new moon in Cancer.
You’ve got a hankering to break free from something, Libra, and your perception of what is most important in life is shifting. Being vocal about what you want in the short and long-term is on the menu this June, so be sure to balance diplomacy with being honest. Your financial security and job satisfaction are on your mind, but it’s a good idea to bounce your ideas and thoughts off a best friend or trusted person before you make any life-altering decisions. Be careful not to get too wrapped up in yourself and be sure to support this person in their journey, too. If you meet someone new, keep it casual for now because big changes are coming.
It may feel like all of your hard work isn’t paying off, but if you persist it’s about to pay in dividends, Scorpio. You’re working diligently on building a solid foundation for your current and future self, and financial rewards may come by the end of the month. Your focus this June shifts to reflecting on your values and intimate relationships. Expect to initiate some conversations that have been swept under the rug for a while, and observe how your past experiences shape your reactions today. Self-sacrifice is sometimes noble, but it isn’t what you need right now.
Are you truly embracing your quirky, unique self Sagittarius? This month motivates you to reflect on how your childhood has shaped who you are. Inner child healing can help you connect with the parts of yourself that remain hidden. Reflect on the ways that the places you visit, the people you spend time with and the situations you find yourself in are holding you back. You’ve outgrown some things lately, and new adventures await. The way you communicate your thoughts and ideas with others needs some tweaking, remember that your relationships rely on some level of diplomacy and mutual understanding.
The clarity you’ve been looking for finally comes, Capricorn, but not in the way you’d pictured. You’re used to pushing through exhaustion and taking the lead on everything, but protecting your time, space and energy is the best thing you can do for yourself right now. Working through your emotional and logistical challenges on your own is where the magic truly presents itself. Stand firm in your boundaries. It may seem counterintuitive, but your personal and professional relationships will benefit when you stand your ground.
If you need space this month, Aquarius, take it. The freedom you’ve been craving is only possible when you’re truly honest about your values. Sometimes some quiet reflection is the best way to reflect on whether you’re staying true to yourself and your inner moral compass. Don’t just give the advice you think people need to hear, but truly live in a way that is authentic to what you believe. When you do spend time with others, make sure it’s with people who at least respect your values and visions and hold you accountable for the ways in which you show up.
You may prefer to dig your head in the sand and pretend that past hurts don’t have an impact on your present self, Pisces. But this month illuminates how your previous emotional experiences inform the decisions you make today. Your sense of security may shift a little, as you question what truly fills your heart and ignites passion in your soul. Give yourself permission to redefine what ‘home’ means to you. Spend your time and energy on the people and projects that make you feel most alive, but don’t expect the way forward to become clear right away.
