As June begins, communication glitches and delays will ease with Mercury turning direct on June 3rd. This is a good period for thoughtful, well-considered plans.
However, no sooner does one retrograde end than another begins – Saturn turns retrograde the following day, pushing us to think more carefully about the level of personal freedom we demand.
A more adventurous, curious vibe arrives mid-month, starting when Mercury moves into its home zodiac sign of Gemini on June 13th, bringing a rush of intellectual stimulation, bright ideas, and lively chatter.
The following day, the Sagittarius Full Moon is packed with exuberance and joy, with energy that urges us to explore and push the boundaries of what we think we know.
On June 21st, the Solstice marks the arrival of the Sun in Cancer. This is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and the shortest in the Southern Hemisphere.
Symbolically, this change of seasons is felt as a desire to protect progress made so far and protect loved ones and values, which is typical of the solar Cancerian energy.
With Venus moving into Gemini the following day, however, there’s a flirtatious edge here too. It’s not a time for taking life too seriously, and the final week of June is likely to have its fair share of frivolous, frothy, fun-filled moments.
As the month winds down, the Cancer New Moon on June 28th is ideal for gratitude and positive manifestation.
Financial clarity is welcome as June begins. Mercury turns direct in the money zone of your natal birth chart, ending a period of confusion and uncertainty.
The following day, Saturn turns retrograde in your social zone, however, so you are likely to feel less sociable and more self-reliant than usual.
Mercury moves into your communication zone on June 13th, but this doesn’t have to be face-to-face communication. Make the most of this energy to text, call or write to long-distant friends and extended family members. In this day and age, there’s no reason to feel lonely or cut off.
The Full Moon on June 14th inspires you to research your next travel destination, only this time you’d like to travel with a purpose. Think about volunteering overseas if you’re up for a challenge!
The Solstice energies of June 21st are always focused on the home and family for you, and this year you’re also thinking about your past and your roots. New discoveries in your family history may be eye-opening around this time.
Once Venus arrives in your communication zone on June 22nd, your charm will go off the scale. This final week of June is an excellent time for getting people on your side, whether in business or your personal life.
Look to the New Moon on June 28th for progress in domestic and real estate issues, ending the month on a highly positive note.
