This is another month of implied transformational intent, Capricorn, with Pluto remaining active in your first, or identity sector. You could find yourself questioning aspects of your self-concept, including the extent to which inner priorities serve you in determining your pathway forward, and also the extent to which you find joy in your possibilities. With the Gemini New Moon of May 30th colouring this June month, and with also the ongoing retrograde of Mercury, you are investigating more thoroughly a service orientation that merits review and readjustment as the month continues to unfold. You might also be reconsidering aspects of your day-to-day or work-life existence, or perhaps health regimens that are ripe for a change. With your inner world fully present in these introspective imaginings, and with your self-expression also emphasized, you are in many ways revamping your approach to life over the course of this monthly cycle. The Full Moon of June 14th acts as a culmination to this arc of development, highlighting the contrast of inner and outer, self and other, and the goal of the further integration of all your parts.

June takes off astrologically with a New Moon in Gemini, from May 30th, starting the June lunation cycle and having occurred in the sector of your chart that relates to your health and your habits. Mercury, which rules the sign of Gemini, is retrograde in Taurus, which means you could be feeling pressured to organize your time better to get through everything you want to do. Thanks to Mars and Jupiter transiting together in Aries in the New Moon configuration, you are probably not lacking motivation. These two planets energize the part of your chart that has to do with your home, family, and roots, and you may be more focused than usual on domestic matters throughout this month. You could feel quite busy with an overabundance of projects, and the pressure could be on organizing your schedule in a way that can help you succeed.
Mercury in Taurus stations direct on June 3rd, and you might be able to have a good grasp of your priorities at this time after a slower period. Things may be in transition, and you may be preoccupied with finishing things up, especially in the first half of the month.
Your ruler, Saturn, has been transiting in Aquarius since the end of 2020, emphasizing the part of your chart relating to your resources and what you value. A restructuring process may be well underway, especially when it comes to your income and financial situation. Saturn turns retrograde in Aquarius on the 4th, while linked with Mercury in Taurus in your 5th house of pleasure and creativity. This could be highlighting the practical steps you may need to take to finance a passion or a hobby. The pressure might feel intimidating, although recognize that you have everything on your side to succeed when you apply due diligence to your craft.
Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus on the 11th is a creative aspect that could help you break free from your own rules. Experimenting could yield surprising outcomes, and it might be an excellent opportunity to try something new. Mercury re-enters Gemini on the 13th, retracing the territory it has already covered twice since the end of April. If you’ve had your mind set on changing a habit but couldn’t find the motivation, Mercury‘s ingress in Gemini could help you clarify the goals you want to set for yourself, especially when it comes to your health and your everyday life routine. You might feel like you need to rush through something. However, it could be the slow and deliberate actions you take at this time that gets you the lasting results you want.
The Full Moon takes place in the sign of Sagittarius on the 14th, illuminating the part of your chart that relates to your unconscious. You may be able to gain clarity on the self-defeating habits that keep you locked into a loop. The way you have been spending your time and energy could be up for review, and it’s an excellent opportunity to shed old opinions about yourself that undermine your self-confidence or your ability to take action. You can’t accomplish this in one day, but there is much healing available now, thanks to Mars and Chiron also being in conjunction in Aries in this Full Moon configuration. This period should feel quite liberating, especially if you allow yourself to fully embrace your individuality and your need for autonomy.
On the 18th and 19th, Venus in Taurus squares with Saturn in Aquarius, and sextile Neptune in Pisces, may bring up the need to assess how you spend your time, especially if you spend a lot of it on social media. It may be an excellent opportunity to reflect on your relationship with pleasure, delayed gratification, and instant rewards, especially if you have some long-term goals you are trying to prioritize.
The Sun enters the fertile waters of Cancer on the 21st, which signals the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun in Cancer is a turning point in the year as it represents precisely the halfway point until Capricorn season. The Sun in Cancer will gradually emphasize your partnerships and the critical people in your life for the next month. You may be more aware of the compromises you need to make with others to keep things in a state of balance. Thanks to Jupiter, Chiron, and Mars transiting in Aries, however, you may feel the need to also have better boundaries with others to keep your sense of autonomy. This may require some fine-tuning, and you should have plenty of opportunities to practice in the latter part of the month, thanks to Mars coming into a sextile with Saturn on the 26th and 27th.
The New Moon in Cancer on the 28th signals the beginning of a new cycle in your relationship sector. As much as you enjoy the company and support from other people, your need to follow your unique creative path without the opinions of others influencing your decisions could characterize this time.
