This is another significant month for you, Scorpio, with continued changes taking place within you affecting your inner understanding of your deep psych, creative self-expression, and partnership dynamics. It is a time for the recognition of issues of self and other, and of the contributions that relationship in your life makes to your connections to family members, any children you may have, creative projects, and your general well-being. With Mercury in retrograde since the middle of last month, to mid-June, you are in an introspective mode, looking more deeply into all these areas, particularly your key relationships. This is in many ways a season of service to others, with the implicit realization that by taking care of other people, you are simultaneously taking care of yourself. This also gives you the blessing of expansion of your life purpose, whatever the details of that might be. You have the sense that you are setting your feet more firmly on your intended path. It is vital now that you cultivate trust in your process, and in your inner moral compass that steers you truly, as you can allow it to.

The Gemini New Moon that just occurred on May 30th, in the part of your chart that relates to shared resources and intimate partnerships, colours most of the month of June. This New Moon took place in a sector also related to depth explorations of your own inner nature. A solution to an ongoing dilemma may come through the help someone is willing to offer you at this time. There might also be a fresh incentive to team up with others this month to benefit from what they bring to your table. You may feel more inclined to invest your energy in those partnerships that have proven themselves through the test of time instead of taking a risk with people who are only half invested. Loyalty and consistency are essential for a Scorpio, and you may have recently realized who is willing to stick around when the going gets more challenging. Taking care of your needs could mean choosing to surround yourself with the right people versus letting anyone transgress your boundaries. However, you may also realize that people can only meet you where you are willing to meet them yourself. You must be able to offer the same guarantees in return; otherwise, you are expecting something you can’t deliver.
Even though you may have a solid inclination to merge with others, Mars and Jupiter conjoined in Aries in the timing of this New Moon could also bring an exaggerated sense of autonomy that sends mixed signals to the people close to you.
During the first week of June, on the 3rd, Mercury turns direct in the sign of Taurus just as Saturn turns retrograde in Aquarius. These two planetary stations could highlight your need for security and stability at this time. You may approach your relationships with more pragmatism expecting only what they can deliver. However, the Gods might have other plans, and it may get progressively harder to stick to your resolutions.
Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus on the 11th could bring exciting yet unpredictable energy. You may quickly realize how futile it is to pretend that you can stick to the tried and the true, as Uranus in Taurus brings a revolutionary influence looking to break the status quo. How you have related to others in the past is undergoing significant changes, and what you need from your partnerships could also be changing at this time. Even though you are looking for stability, another part of you may need to evolve out of stagnating patterns.
Mercury re-enters Gemini on the 13th, bringing more fluidity, yet Mercury in Gemini could also bring uncertainty, especially in your intimate partnerships. You could tend to overthink a situation, and it might be best to let sleeping dogs lie at this time if you are unsure of how someone feels towards you.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 14th is an ambiguous one that may illuminate how you have relinquished your autonomy for something that ended up being quite elusive. You may have been dedicating a lot of your energy to a project or a scenario that revealed itself to be hollow in the long run, and you may now be realizing the futility of the chase. The Full Moon squares Neptune in Pisces, and this could highlight a creative or romantic pursuit built on shaky grounds. However, the Full Moon also receives a supportive sextile from Saturn in Aquarius, which means that you may be able to rely on your pre-existing foundations for support. Mars conjoined with Chiron in Aries at the time of the Full Moon speaks of wounded autonomy, and you may come to grasp the implications of your recent energy investments. You may have to remove a layer of deception to get to the roots of what you need right now, but the results could help you move forward with renewed integrity and the financial or emotional autonomy you crave.
On June 18th and 19th, Venus in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius is a critical aspect that highlights the needs you may have for commitment and security. However, Venus also comes into a sextile with Neptune in Pisces almost simultaneously, which may bring romantic longing into the mix. You may need one thing and its opposite, and it may be more challenging to stay honest with yourself or with others about your contradictory desires at this time.
The Sun enters the magical waters of Cancer on the 21st, signalling the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun in Cancer could bring much-needed perspective and a renewed sense of adventure in the coming weeks. However, Mars and Jupiter transiting in Aries could mean that you are on a tight schedule. You might need to focus on the tasks at hand before you can go out and play, but it may also seem like your work is never done.
Venus entering Gemini on June 22nd continues to bring attention to your intimate and business partnerships until mid-July. Welcomed support could come from your close allies, so don’t be shy to ask for help if you feel overwhelmed. Mars in Aries sextile Saturn in Aquarius may highlight time constraints, but this productive aspect towards the end of June could help you get things done more efficiently.
The month of June ends on an optimistic note, with the New Moon in Cancer on the 28th receiving a square from Jupiter in Aries. This influence could make you feel confident and determined, but it may be wise to keep a sense of perspective. The exaggerated influences coming from Jupiter may require moderation. Focusing your energy on simplifying things will help. Venus in Gemini also sextiles Jupiter, which may add fuel to the fire. Staying out of trouble at this time might require a quality of discernment.
