Mercury goes direct on the 3rd, so we all start by taking a deep breath and experiencing some relief. We’re now free to sign leases and contracts, take the next step in our relationships, or make big purchases without any unexpected situations coming back to bite us. However, Saturn does go retrograde the following day. Those who won’t commit to a conscious internal process of reflection regarding their duties will suffer the consequences of this retrograde later.
This goes for all zodiac signs in general: prepare to be strategic in the way you communicate and the people you date. Some tricky situations regarding communication in all areas of your life and dating, both casually and within a serious relationship, will come up. They will be resolved in due course if you put your best foot forward, but prepare to leave carelessness behind.
What to Expect This Month
The month starts on a very mixed note with Mercury going direct on the 3rd, only for Saturn to go retrograde the next day. With Mercury direct, things are finally what they seem, and we can stop looking for the fine print (both literally and metaphorically). We’re finally free to act in ways that will have long-term consequences without preparing for unpleasant surprises. However, the Saturn retrograde that starts on the 4th of this month and ends on October 22nd will demand a conscious process of introspection on our part. This process regards our duties. What do we owe our family? What is expected of us to deliver our best in our careers? What are our duties to our community, especially those who are marginalised? These are all questions you should make time to reflect on. You may choose to skip this process. However, if you do so, life will strike out after the retrograde is over.
On the 10th, we have a harmonious aspect between Mercury in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury deals with communication and the mind, and Pluto deals with processes of transformation and the healing that happens after destruction. Grief is particularly relevant on this day. Circle this date as a great time to journal on traumatic things. You’re very likely to be able to articulate what you feel regarding Plutonian themes. Unexpected conversations may happen on this day regarding these topics. And even if they feel uncomfortable at the moment, embrace them as a healing opportunity. On the 11th, Uranus in Taurus conjuncts Venus in the same sign. On this day, expect the unexpected in your love life, both for the bad and the good.
This month, the Full Moon happens on the zodiac sign of Sagittarius on the 14th. This is an invitation to leave behind certain elements of political beliefs, religions, and life philosophies that may be holding you back. If you have a tendency toward fanaticism or getting overly committed to a certain line of thinking, start to question it. It’s not doing you any favours. If one of your teachers or mentors brings out the worst in you, gently let them go – or at least start being more critical of what they say. They may still have some valuable lessons for you, but not everything they say is gospel.
On the 18th, we have a more tense aspect between Saturn in Aquarius and Venus in Taurus. This can manifest in a variety of ways: conflicts of interest between yourself and a partner or potential partner, a partner’s demands or expectations getting in the way of your duties, and your own sense of value coming into conflict with your responsibilities. Be prepared to defend what’s essential.
On the 21st, the Sun enters Cancer and there’s a trine between Venus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. The focus becomes more on our emotions and our home. More importantly, there is a harmonious aspect between Venus (the planet of love, romance, aesthetics, pleasure and, most importantly, the way we assign value) and Pluto (the planet of transformation and rebirth). If you’re in any way artistically inclined, make some time on your schedule on this date to create some art, in whatever shape or form. Not only will it be a good piece of art, it will probably have healing effects on those who interact with it. You may also find some sense of healing regarding past events in your love life around this date, so don’t skip any therapy appointments – you may be on the edge of a breakthrough!
On the 23rd, Venus enters Gemini. Words and conversation suddenly become more attractive. On the 28th, Neptune goes retrograde in Pisces. We’re invited to go within and reflect on compassion, but also our own delusional tendencies and the ways we deny ourselves of the factual truth. On the same day, the New Moon in Cancer invites us to manifest a new beginning regarding our homes and our relationship with our parents (if they are not among us, remember that you can still work on your relationship with them at a soul level), expanding our families, the closest members of our support networks, and giving and receiving the emotional nourishment we need.
What This Means for Your Zodiac Sign
Affirmation: “I decide to honour my emotions, whether they are positive or negative, and make space for them.”
Last month, Jupiter, the planet of good luck and expansion, entered your zodiac sign. It will stay there until May 16th, 2023. This mostly means good news for you overall. However, on the 29th of this month, Jupiter enters into a tense aspect (a square with the Sun in Cancer). This means that your need to expand and find purpose for your actions will be in conflict with the more emotional side in your endeavours that you may be neglecting. If you’re looking to earn more, for example, you may not be tapping into repressed emotions that may be holding you back. Money vibrates in exactly the same way as trust.
If, due to emotional issues, you lack trust in either yourself or important players in your life that have proven to be trustworthy, this tense aspect may drive you to come to terms with it. If you hope to attract the right partner, make sure you are ready to be open and vulnerable with the people you date. Your physical energy and vitality look good throughout the month. Should you experience any medical issues this month, besides going to the doctor, consider turning to alternative practices like the bio-decoding of emotions as a complement. This alternative therapy sees physical illness as a manifestation of unresolved emotional issues.
Affirmation: “I am open to the unexpected and trust that the universe is looking out for me.”
June will be a very active month for you. Your finances overall will continue as they are, with the notable exception of the 16th, when you may find out some heartbreaking news regarding money or other assets. You will see a turning point in your love life on the 11th. Sadly, whether it’s a positive or negative turning point, we can’t tell as Uranus will take the wheels on your love life on that day. It’s wisest to expect the unexpected with that planet. The 10th is a potent day for healing any mental or physical matters. Mercury retrograde was especially affecting you. When it goes direct on the 3rd, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Your words will no longer be misunderstood, and communication will start to go as normal, without a hitch.
On the 10th, Mercury in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn. This is a beautiful day to do some healing through the use of words. If you meant to have a conversation with someone important to you to mend your bond with them, June 10th is a great day to do so. On June 11th, Venus will conjunct Uranus in your sign. This brings with it a mixed bag of possible outcomes. From meeting a partner who will challenge your way of thinking and who’s generally very innovative in your outlook to completely rethinking what you value and why due to an unfortunate incident, anything can happen. I know that, as a Taurus, you prefer more concrete predictions, but Uranus is unpredictable in nature. Expect the unexpected. On the 18th, Venus in your sign forms a tense aspect with Saturn in Aquarius. If your love life has made you neglect your career or other duties, prepare for a rude awakening.
Affirmation: “I honour my duties and do my best.”
This is a great month for love, especially after the 23rd. Your finances will stay as they are until exactly the end of the month. After June 29th, there will be movement, both positive and negative. There won’t be much movement regarding your health. If you’ve been underperforming, this may be a particularly difficult month regarding your career. On the 13th, Mercury enters Gemini. You’ll be the star of every conversation you have. If you work on communicating in some way, you may achieve some important career milestones this month.
On the 16th, the Sun in your sign enters into a tense aspect (a square) with Saturn in Aquarius. If you’ve been underperforming in your career or not paying attention to other duties (including family and your community), this will be a difficult day for you. You’ll have to face the music. But you have nothing to worry about if you’ve been doing your best in everything you absolutely have to do. On the 23rd, Venus enters Gemini. You’ll become especially magnetic to all sorts of suitors, and you may even find a new partner after this date. If you’re already in a serious relationship, be prepared for things to get spicier in the bedroom towards the end of the month.
Affirmation: “I seek what sets my soul on fire and motivates me to take action.”
For our dear crabs, June will be relatively quiet and uneventful until the 29th. As long as you get your sense of purpose sorted by this date and start taking concrete action towards achieving your goals, you can use the New Moon to manifest whatever your heart desires regarding finances, health, or love. We recommend you rest and practise self-care in advance for the events that will take place after this date. You will need all the energy you can get for when the energies change on the 29th.
It’s also advisable to talk to a therapist or trusted friend about what motivates you or gives you purpose, as well as how this sense of motivation (or lack thereof) may be affecting the way you act – or fail to act. This is so because this miraculous New Moon happens at the same time as a tense aspect (a square) between Jupiter, which is the planet of purpose (among other more well-known characteristics), which is currently transiting Aries, the zodiac sign associated with taking action.
Affirmation: “I choose the right collaborators to make my dreams come true.”
June is all about collaboration for the lions. It could be a great month for finding love or turning over a new leaf in an existing relationship. Collaboration could help you find the clue to heal existing illnesses and keep your overall health. Finding a partner in crime to launch a side business could be the clue to making some extra money this month. This is so because the climate in your zodiac sign itself is quiet. There are no transits of note affecting Leo directly. However, as Saturn – the planet of responsibility and duty – is currently placed on Aquarius (the zodiac sign that represents romantic and business partners for Leo), and Saturn has both tense and harmonious aspects with other planets this month, here’s the key to harness the current astrological climate and make it work in your favour.
On the 4th, Saturn in Aquarius goes retrograde. Your partner may become more introspective, or you may need to do some inner digging yourself to find out what’s truly keeping you back from finding your soulmate. On the 18th, Venus in Taurus forms a tense aspect (a square) with Saturn in Aquarius. You can harness this as an opportunity to grow your career (represented by Taurus in your tenth house) by facing the opportunities for growth presented between the tension of what makes you valuable in your career and what your partner/collaborator brings to the table. The energies of this month may also translate into a relatively quiet month for you personally, but a need for you to step up for a partner or an associate who’s facing a lot of difficulties.
Affirmation: “I attract my dream career by putting myself out there.”
June is a huge month for your career, with both ups and downs. If you want to improve your finances, you will have better luck after the 23rd. If you want to take up a new healthy habit or generally improve your physical health, you can take advantage of the Full Moon this month. If you’re single, you’ll remain single. Partnered-up Virgos, on the other hand, may experience some bumps in the road towards the end of the month.
On the 13th, your ruler, Mercury, will enter Gemini on your tenth house of career. Your words acquire a new weight in your job or overall industry. This is a great time to write pieces you can publish on LinkedIn or in a well-known publication in your industry or be a guest on a relevant podcast. On the 16th, there’s tension between Mercury and Neptune in Pisces, as they will form a square. If you have a partner, there may be some bickering. Try to remain patient and don’t make any decisions too quickly. On the 23rd, you become magnetic as a professional. If you want to get a new job, start applying around this date. If you want to get a promotion in your current job, ask for it around this date.
Affirmation: “I accept my efforts take some time to pay off.”
June is all about transformation, travel, and defying your philosophy around life. None of this is easy, but it can be rewarding if you embrace the challenge. Single Libras should get lucky at any point, since last month, Jupiter – the planet of good luck – entered their seventh house of partnership. Partnered Libras may see conflict between one of their close friends and their partners, but as Libras, they are innate mediators and should be more than able to solve the situation before it escalates. The 10th is a great day for taking concrete steps for improving health, be it physical or mental. Personal finances won’t see much of a change, either positive or negative, but there may be some movement regarding either shared finances or an inheritance. On the 10th, there’s a harmonious aspect between Mercury (placed on Libra’s eighth house of transformation and shared finances) and Pluto (the planet of rebirth). This may entail an unexpected inheritance or a breakthrough regarding present healing efforts.
On the 11th, Venus and Uranus join forces again on Libra’s eighth house of transformation. Shared investments may start to bring in unexpected profit or Libras may start to heal their relationship to pleasure and the way they perceive their own self-worth – looks like that hard work in therapy is starting to finally make a difference! On the 16th, an important mentor of yours may let you down, or you will be forced to confront some of your more extreme core beliefs. Specifically, some of our Libra teachers may need to revise the way they teach and how they form relationships with their students. On the 18th, the square between Venus and Saturn will bring in more painful memories surrounding pleasure and the inner child. Look for support wherever you can. Finally, on the 23rd, Venus enters Gemini, bringing some much-needed harmony when it comes to travel plans and life philosophies.
Affirmation: “I proactively take care of those I love without losing sight of my needs.”
June is a relatively quiet month surrounding your health and finances. The one exception for your finances is the Full Moon in Sagittarius, which can help you finally get rid of either an external situation or person who’s been acting like a leech for your bank account or a negative habit that’s leading you to overspend. It will be a very hectic month in your love life, with both highs and lows.
On the 3rd, if you haven’t been able to see eye to eye with your partner or if there has been a lot of bickering due to misunderstandings or miscommunication, things will start to become smoother and more harmonious as Mercury goes direct in your seventh house of partnership. The 10th is a great day for any healing that’s needed in your relationship or, if you’re single, any of your own beliefs or attitudes that are stopping you from getting partnered up. The 18th brings with it more tense energy surrounding your love life. Your partner will be in direct conflict with one of your parents, an aspect of your home, or one of your children – and you’ll have to deal with the mess.
Affirmation: “I listen to my body and give it rest when it needs to rest.”
Your finances may see a significant improvement after the 10th. It seems some of your efforts regarding the way you manage your time or efforts towards improving one of your relationships with a client, boss, or colleague will finally pay off. You’ll reap the rewards as financial gain. Your love life is very active this month, with both highlights and rather tense situations coming up. You may experience fatigue towards the middle of the month. If you can, give your body the rest it needs.
The biggest day of the month for you is the 14th. The Full Moon will hit you, hard. This can manifest as physical exhaustion. However, if you’ve been doing your homework, this can be a great opportunity to get rid of any idea you have of yourself that’s been holding you back. Regarding your love life, on the 16th, some lies your partner may have told you may come up, or you’ll have to comfort them after someone important to them lets them down. On the 23rd, opportunities for new love will start to flourish. Take advantage of them.
Affirmation: “I do my best and trust the universe with the rest.”
Your love life will stay as-is throughout June, with a promising new beginning starting to manifest around the 29th. Your health will also be stable throughout the month, with the 10th offering some harmonious energies that are ideal for conceiving or getting a diagnosis related to the heart or the circulatory system. The area with the most movement in June will definitely be your finances. On the 4th, Saturn will go retrograde in your second house of personal assets and money. Constraints that seemed to be on the outside regarding your money will let up a bit. Work on some limiting beliefs during this time, and you’ll manifest abundance. On the 10th, there’s a harmonious aspect between Mercury in your fifth house of children, self-expression, and casual romance, and Pluto in your first house.
This date is a great time to conceive. If you’ve been experiencing symptoms related to your blood, circulatory system, or heart, the healthcare professionals you see around this time will be aided by the astrological energy to diagnose you correctly or show you a more effective treatment. On the 16th, there’s some harmonious energy between the Sun in your sixth house of the workplace and daily habits and Saturn in your second house of finances and assets. Your previous efforts to be on top of the details and have a good relationship with bosses and colleagues will pay off in more money coming your way. There’s a more tense energy surrounding your finances on the 18th, when Venus in Taurus will square Saturn in Aquarius. Your need to assert yourself in some way will ruffle a few feathers, and it may cost you. The New Moon on the 29th happens in your seventh house of committed partnership. This is a great time to manifest a new companion.
Affirmation: “I love, embrace and listen to my inner child – especially about what she has to say about mother and father.”
Your love life will stay more or less stable. Your finances may suffer on the 16th. Your children, inner child, or a casual lover may raise up an unexpected bill that you’ll have to take care of. Your own health has been very demanding. Since Saturn entered your sign in April after a retrograde period in which it came back to Capricorn for a spell, you’ve been asked to pull up your socks and make some extra effort in all areas of life. On the 4th, Saturn goes retrograde until October. Its effects will still be there, but they will be far more subtle and mostly manifest as an inner process that you can choose to nurture or ignore. The choice you make now will have an impact later when it comes direct in October. If you’ve come to peace with your inner sense of duty, you will be rewarded by outside forces in October.
This is something that isn’t said enough of Saturn: it does reward honest hard work. If you choose to ignore it, you will feel relief in the short-term, but prepare for October. The good news is you have a choice. On the 16th, there is a beautiful trine between the Sun in your fifth house of self-expression and Saturn in your first house. Make some art and show people who you are. It can bring in a positive outcome. On the 18th, there’s a more tense energy between Venus in your fourth house of home, family, and parents, and Saturn in your first. You’ll be confronted with some issues related to the place you live or some unresolved issues with your parents. It can be painful, but take it as an opportunity for growth. Step up your game if you haven’t been helping out your ailing parents enough, and try to let go of any anger you may still carry towards them.
Affirmation: “I am prepared to face the truth about my family, and I acknowledge my inner child as a member of said family.”
June will be a relatively quiet month for your love life, and we see no reason for you to be concerned about your health (if you do or your GP does, please don’t ignore your own instinct or their professional advice). There will be some movement regarding your finances that have been looking good since Jupiter – the planet of expansion and good luck – moved to your second house of assets and finances last month. However, watch out for the square between this planet and the Sun in Cancer on your house of self-expression and children on the 29th.
If you’re trying for a child, fertility treatments may end up costing a pretty penny, or you will have unexpected bills for your child. Your inner child can act up and do some damage to your bank account, too. The 29th is also a beautiful day to conceive or make art. All of you Pisceans are fond of some sort of artistic medium, so don’t miss out on giving yourself the gift of making time for art. Other dates to watch out for relate to Neptune’s transit in your sign. Neptune will have a tense aspect with the Sun in Gemini on the 16th. Some truths may be revealed regarding your parents, your family history, or your home – and they will be painful to hear. This planet will go retrograde on the 28th. Beware of self-delusion from this day on.
