Aries Sun/Rising, June is all about self-love and shadow-work! Aries, the retrograde season can be draining as retrogrades have the ability to uncover all the nitty-gritty in life. Throughout the month of June, you’re going to have to do some heavy introspection as to what you can heal, where you can forgive, and how to move on. On June 5th, the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius will call your attention to your spiritual and educational journey. This is the time to reflect on your progress. Little by little, one travels far! Revel in your journey, and feel pride in the hard work you have done. By the middle of June, your family and home will become a huge focus. Between the 18th and the 21st, the Sun will move into Cancer, Mercury will station Retrograde in Cancer, and there will be a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer. As the Sun and New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer are highlighting your home and family, this is a great time to begin setting new intentions. Can you improve or repair any familial relationships? Is this the time to begin researching your ancestry? Are you content in your current home? What can be improved in your current home? Mercury Retrograde in Cancer implies that much needed conversations may be happening over the next month about your home and family. Be gentle, as Mercury Retrograde can be difficult to navigate. Since the next month will be about improving your home and family, part of this may also be contingent on healing yourself. As Neptune stations retrograde in Pisces, this will be affecting your subconscious over the next few months. You may feel called to do some shadow-work over the next few months. Shadow-work implies that you’re facing your shadow self, or the parts of yourself that need to be healed. This may be easy to get into when Mars moves into Aries, as you’re going to feel the innate drive to improve yourself. Don’t be afraid to rely on long-time friends to help you during this time. By the end of June, there will be a push to let go of something that’s been holding you back from shadow-work. This could be holding onto a job that is no longer working for you, holding onto your idea of your reputation, or holding onto an immature mindset. Whatever it may be, just know that letting go of this stagnant aspect of yourself will significantly impact your ability to heal and grow as a person over the next few months.
Taurus Sun/Rising Taurus, your next month is going to be about accepting change as it is. Scary stuff for a fixed sign, such as yourself! The retrograde and eclipse season is about reflection. Essentially, what needs to change and what needs to be let go. When the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius occurs on the 5th, your hidden self will become exposed. This is the ideal time to take your mask off. You are a fixed, earth sign so essentially, you may resist letting people into your life. This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is going to ask you to be a little bit more open. Remember that there is strength in vulnerability! There will be a bit of a lull between the 5th to the 18th. From the 18th to the 21st, the Sun will move into Cancer, Mercury will station retrograde in Cancer, and there will be a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer. When the Sun and New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer occurs, this will be a moment to reflect on how your vulnerability has served you in the last two weeks. What did you do, and what where the outcomes? Did this affect your life positively or negatively? Whatever the case may be, it wouldn’t be surprising if you felt the need to retreat, especially with Mercury Retrograde in Cancer affecting your communication. However, the over-arching lesson of the next month with Cancerian transits is to know when to come forward and when to retreat. This will be a balancing act of raw vulnerability and silence. You may feel like you can’t communicate what you want or need properly during this time. But part of learning is taking each mistake in stride. If you fumble, just know you’re not going to fall. If you are feeling frustrated or angered, be mindful in how you choose to express it. Mars will be in Aries, which will light a fire on your subconscious. You may be more easily annoyed or angered over the next month than usual. If this is the case, then be vulnerable with how you feel. If you let your anger fester, you will end up having grudges or grievances that will hinder your progress in your relationships.
Gemini Sun/Rising, Welcome to your season, Gemini! While the Sun and Venus are in your sign, you’re likely exploring variations of yourself right now. Who do you want to become?

This could be a time where you may gain one thing, but at the cost of something else. Your emotions may also sway your attitude regarding your finances. Try to hold back from making emotional purchases, or emotional investments. When Neptune stations retrograde in Pisces, this will be casting a haze over your career, maturity, and recognition. The next few months may be unpredictable, especially if you’re unsure of your footing at work and in your communities. It may be time to start making new connections while keeping up with current connections. You’ll be surprised what your connections can bring you! Your communities may help your position with your status, or even open up a new avenue with your career. All in all, keep an open mind, but don’t readily commit.

This may be the time when you’re able to talk about the family secrets in a productive manner that helps you move on. June can be a time where you and your family heals.

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius will highlight your subconscious. This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse will call your journey into question. Where are you going, Capricorn?

When the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, and New Moon Solar Eclipse are all in Cancer, your relationships are going to be highlighted. These transits will put what you want in your relationships into focus.

If not, ask yourself if this is because you don’t feel recognized or appreciated at your current workplace. As the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, and New Moon Solar Eclipse station in Cancer during mid-June, this will light up your creativity, but also drama. You’re going to find inner happiness from altruistic and/or compassionate activities. This could be spending time with family, volunteering, and even fostering a pet. However, Mercury Retrograde is also lighting up your zone of drama, so be wary of what you say, how you say it, and when you say it. Sometimes innocuous comments can come back to bite you in the butt. This may be difficult as Mars in Aries is sparking your stability and finances. So, you may find that drama is brewing if you spout off in a moment of frustration, or say something impulsively in a blunt manner. This could be especially true if you’re voicing frustrations over a lack of stability in the workplace. It may be difficult to gauge how you’re acting or being perceived because Neptune Retrograde will be occurring in your sign. June looks like a month of instability, mainly because you may have a difficult time perceiving a situation accurately and others may have a difficult time perceiving you accurately. Since you’ll be wearing the rose-colored glasses, try your best to disengage from any drama that’s already been brewing. There’s no need to throw more fuel on a fire!
