ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19): Does life seem to be moving at a faster pace than usual? Do you sometimes have the urge to push the brake pedal and slow things down? Well, on June 26, you may get the chance because your ruling planet, Mars, starts its retrograde journey, helping you stop and reassess your goals. It’s a time to slow down and recalibrate, if necessary. Because retrogrades can lead to delays and setbacks, you might take advantage of this influence and give yourself a break from it all. Unplug and take a vacation.
Friendships could undergo shifts and changes during the retrograde, especially around the time of the Full Moon on June 27. If you encounter drama, you do not necessarily have to engage. As an Aries, you often feel a deep-seated need to defend your truth. However, choose your battles wisely.
On June 13, you might take inventory of your social media and personal brand. Are you fully expressing yourself to the world? If your image does not reflect your brilliance, make changes. You have a gift with words this month. Use them to finish writing proposals or preparing presentations. You might even be called to speak or teach as an expert in your field.
After June 21, the solstice spotlights your home and family. Consider taking mini-adventures or doing enjoyable things together to foster deeper connections. Rather than try to fix what’s not working, emphasize what is. This shift in perspective could help you accept the past and embrace the present.
TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20): The wheel of fortune is a philosophical concept held by medieval and ancient cultures that means fate can change positions randomly. The Romans believed the goddess Fortuna, the goddess of luck, fortune, and fate, spun the wheel of fortune, bestowing on some misfortunes and others great opportunities. Well, we live in a different time, one in which we consider ourselves agents, to some extent, of our destinies. However, inevitable and unexpected changes manifest in our lives that can alter the course of an afternoon or a lifetime. In those times, we have free will over our attitudes and responses to life’s events. This month, as the wheel of fortune spins for you, remember to practice gratitude, to stay creative, and to be enthusiastic about your future.
At the beginning of the month, Mars occupies your career sector, helping motivate you for success. Your ego might need a bit more fluffing than usual, and as a result, you could receive external validation for your talents and accomplishments. Then, Mars makes a shift on June 26, as it begins its retrograde journey, slowing things down to give you a chance to reassess your goals and priorities. The end of the month is an excellent time to revisit past ideas or projects. You might collaborate with others to implement a strategy for success.
The New Moon on June 13 could inspire questions about finances. At the dark of the moon, we cannot always see clearly. If you have concerns about the future, address them in a practical, balanced manner, without spiraling into anxiety, which will only cloud your thinking. You are ready to concept new revenue streams, but you will need time to implement those plans. Take a deep breath, and tap into your creative juices.
GEMINI (MAY 20 – JUNE 20): Happy birthday! Life is moving fast, and it requires your full presence and attention. If you blink this month, you could miss something. So, be here now. In the present moment, you need not worry about the future or dwell on the past. At this moment, you can relax your mind. Try this several times throughout the month to stay out of overwhelm.
Unexpected financial opportunities, like a new client or bonus, could knock on your door. Answer by following up with all leads, no matter how random they seem. Whether long-term investments or extra income in the short term, take advantage of any positive cash flow, especially after the solstice on June 21. You might also consider a new approach to investing at this time.
The Full Moon on June 27 highlights business partnerships. Though this is not the best time to sign a new contract, you can begin a building process.
The New Moon in your sign on June 13 signals a fresh beginning in your life. “Focus” is your keyword. You can direct this palpable energy. Use it to work towards achieving a long-term goal. The sky’s the limit. Develop a step-by-step process and outline your plan. Celebrate each success along the way.
Mars stations retrograde on June 26, and you might have encounters with people from your past. This influence can help you reconnect with a lover for a fresh start. Conversely, you could finally get closure from a past relationship with still unresolved questions. You are in a period of feeling and healing. On June 21, Venus opposes Mars, compounding that relationship energy. It could be intensely beautiful or confusing. If you are in a relationship, have faith and work out any trust issues. Mars in your ninth house activates your sense of adventure. You and your partner could find yourselves making last-minute travel plans this month.
CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22): On June 21, the sun moves into your sign, and we all enter into Cancer season. Your sign is one of four Cardinal signs (along with Aries, Libra, and Capricorn), and when the sun makes an ingress into a cardinal sign, we feel inspired to make something happen. Cardinal energy initiates change. In the weeks leading up to the solstice, you become more aware of what you need to let go. These realizations could be painful, but you can reframe your experience if you allow your excitement for future possibilities to exceed your regret. Once you let go, you feel liberated and ready for a new chapter in life. The New Moon on June 13 helps you compost disappointment, churning it into determination. Then, you can readily dedicate yourself to a higher calling, your purpose.
On June 1-2, Venus in your sign forms friendly aspects to Neptune and Jupiter, allowing you to discern truth from illusion in relationships. These transits could signal a turning point in your love life as you finally come to grips with what you need to have real connections. A few days later, you have the opportunity to take action, and whether you’re breaking up or making a deeper commitment, you are going through a necessary change.
At the end of the month, the sun in your sign helps you in business, especially if you are presenting information, pitching clients, starting a new project, or launching a business. You have a gift with words, and you can attract attention with the sun’s beams shining on your sign. If you have any reservations or questions about someone else’s integrity, the influence of the Full Moon in Capricorn on June 27 can help validate your intuition.
LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22): The sun is your chart’s ruler, and this month, it commands attention, inviting us all into celebration. On June 21, solstice day, the sun appears to come to a standstill at the most northern point relative to the Celestial Equator. In the Northern Hemisphere, this is the day with the most sunlight of the year. Many cultures have celebrated the sun on the solstice as it has been associated with fertility and good harvests. Take a moment and acknowledge:
This month, your ruling planet steals the show! Maybe you could take a hint from the sun and find a way to shine in the limelight, too.
Your career is in a process of transformation. You may have strong desires to start something new. Maybe you did not actively choose a new beginning, but rather, it chose you as an unexpected surprise. As a result of this cycle of transition, your inner rebel could be louder than usual. That said, this is not the best time to challenge authority or make a sudden departure. Try to keep your impulses steady, and wisely discern next moves. Consider consulting with a career coach or astrologer to glean insights about your potential.
On June 13, Venus enters your sign, and all eyes are on you. The influence of Venus could take you on a shopping spree or inspire you to make an appointment with your stylist. If you can, try to avoid elective surgeries after June 23.
Venus in your sign is also favorable for your love life. When Venus transits through your first house, you tend to feel a bit more confident, and confidence can be highly attractive. If you are single, update your dating profile or consult with a relationship coach. If you are in a relationship, you could experience some tension after Mars stations retrograde on June 26. Unresolved issues from the past could start to come up for you to work through. Remain calm and understand this is a cycle for gaining awareness and uncovering the truth. If you are single, you could reconnect with someone from your past. Remain open to all possibilities.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22): Your mind operates at turbo speed this month. Use this momentum to accomplish more than you could have imagined. You have inventions to patent, stories to tell, and projects to launch. June’s New Moon on the 13th signals a fresh start for your career. It could come in the form of an idea or through a conversation. It may be a subtle stirring from within. Keep a writing journal with you just in case. That wild notion could be something to pursue down the road. By the time the sun enters Cancer on June 21 at the solstice, you could start to see the manifestation of your brilliance.
You may encounter a few challenges with your children this month, as Saturn moves retrograde through that sector of your chart. If you do not have children, then you could encounter setbacks with projects you consider your “babies.” Remain optimistic. Saturn introduces tests and challenges, but it usually offers rewards for your dedication. Some issues could try your patience on June 27. See the growth opportunities. Namely, remember, when it comes to others, you cannot control outcomes. You can only control your attitudes, behaviors, and responses. Releasing control is often a Virgo’s growth edge.
You could encounter sweeping changes in your outlook on life this month. For example, you could meet someone from a different culture whose worldview blows your mind. This is a time to think globally, in your professional endeavors as well as your personal life. If you have ever wanted to live abroad, this could be a favorable time to enact a plan for the future.
Relationships take a more serious turn this month, and you might find yourself dwelling on the past, especially after June 18, when Neptune stations retrograde in your seventh house of partnership. Imagine composting your regrets and disappointments, letting them go completely. Then, throw in your worries about the future. As you let go of those energies, you can have space in your heart to grow seeds of possibility. You can reinvent your love life, and it can be remarkable. If you doubt that’s true, don’t be so jaded! Compost that doubt, too.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 22- OCTOBER 22): As someone born under the sign of Libra, you value your relationships. At times, you might even prioritize the needs of your special someone over your own. When this happens, you build emotional debt, as you’re spending more than receiving. The simple solution to this? Put *you first from time to time. Fill your tank before you run empty pleasing or impressing others. You can do this in simple, subtle ways. For example, you might consider starting your day on your terms. Take 20 minutes to meditate before you check your phone or email. Journal, exercise, or engage in some other form of self-care. When you can set a boundary and hold to it, you can then start to develop other habits that keep your life in balance.
Financial questions could come up for you this month, and it would be helpful to consult with an advisor, especially if you have recently received an inheritance or are in the process of your own estate planning. After June 21, watch your budget. Though you’re feeling abundant and optimistic about your financial future, think more savings and less spending. Specifically, pay off debts, and invest wisely.
At the end of the month, opposing interests could leave you energetically depleted. Your career is the main focus after June 21, and the Full Moon on June 27 signals pressure from your home and family. Balance is your keyword, dear Libra. Keep your priorities in check and practice the art of saying no.
On June 13, the influence of the New Moon highlights your adventurous side. Plan a journey and allow yourself to unplug from it all, even if it’s just for a day or two. If you go with your special someone, even better. With Mars in Aquarius and your solar fifth house, you have the motivation to make relationship changes and spark romance, whether you’re single or involved. If you have been trying to conceive, Mars in your sector of children can speed up the process. The key is to relax and take it easy. Nothing allows you to do that like a vacation.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21): How much of life is fate, and how much free will do we actually have? When life circumstances change unexpectedly, you might ponder this question. The truth is: Things happen beyond our control. Political leaders you would have never elected get sworn into office. Rain falls on wedding days. Jobs become downsized and new job opportunities appear unexpectedly. Children grow up and make different choices. We cannot control the thoughts, beliefs, or actions of others. We can, though, manage our responses to external stimuli as well as our attitudes about the future. Now, your sign has a reputation for being a control freak from time to time. This month, fate might have the wheel, but you can work with it to manifest a whole new chapter.
On June 13, Venus enters your tenth house of career and reputation. This is a great time to network and connect with helpful people. If you are looking for a new opportunity or wish to start down a different career path, rely on help from others and then return the favors at the end of the year, when all of the pieces come together and fall into place.
Mars stations retrograde on June 26, and you could revisit your past. You might even plan a trip to visit your childhood home or reconnect with estranged family members. If you harbor any lingering anger, regret, or disappointment about the past, seek help from a therapist or supportive person. You have too much forward-moving energy in life to be held back by pain from the past.
Mars in retrograde could also delay home renovation projects or architectural plans. Trust in divine timing rather than yield to frustration.
Your relationships are undergoing a deep metamorphosis. Perhaps you desire more freedom now than before. You can individuate without separating. The key to relationship success is to strike a balance between your needs and those of your partners. If you are single, your relationship paradigm is changing, too, and possibly for the better. Assess your true desires and align those with actions. If you say you want love but stay home every night with your cat, you’re out of alignment. To manifest love, you need to be love for others. So, step out and connect!
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21): The next three months signal a turning point for you, Sagittarius. A new cycle is starting for you in the fall, and life could change in exciting and expansive ways in 2019. Right now, though, you are laying the groundwork for this change. Therefore, be very intentional about your thoughts, and focus your energy in specific ways. Keep your goals in mind, and avoid distractions to ensure you stay on the most expansive path possible for yourself.
On June 13, a New Moon in your seventh house of relationships could signal the start of a romance (if you are single). If you are already with a partner, you might consider making a fresh start of some kind to have a healthier, happier relationship. Perhaps you and your partner can commit to trying a new hobby together. Take a cooking class for example. After June 26, Mars in retrograde could bring up unresolved issues from the past. If your relationship has been rocky, work through your issues early in the month before this transit begins. Whether you are single or involved, with Venus moving into compatible Leo on June 13, you could have some hot summer nights late in the month.
Saturn is moving through your financial sector, and its influence can put pressure on your bank account. If you feel more stress than usual, understand it is for a bigger purpose. Saturn can help you focus on your long-term goals, including strategizing ways to bring additional income. This is an excellent time to think of creative money-making ideas but wait until after Mars stations direct again on August 28 to launch any new business. Think carefully before you spend this month, as you might want to save while you have positive influences for investing. If you are applying for a loan or other sorts of financing, your process runs smoothly after June 21, when the sun moves into Cancer.
If you can, give yourself a vacation and unplug from it all at the end of the month. The Full Moon on June 27 could turn your attention inward. You might be more reflective and introspective. When you break free from the routine, you can tune into the voice of your intuition and hear all of the answers to life’s biggest questions.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19): When you set your mind to something, you can make it happen. While you are normally cautious and careful with your tasks, this month, you need to multi-task more than usual, especially before June 20. You are motivated to move mountains, and you will.
If you feel scattered, simplify your life by decluttering. A clean space can lead to a clear head. This goes for your physical body, too. You might want to detox and attend to your health before the New Moon on June 13.
The internal voice that drives you to achieve might take on a critical tone from time to time. If you find yourself succumbing to negativity this month, stop and adjust your thinking. You need confidence to meet your goals.
Professionally, you are motivated by money this month. However, Mars is stationing retrograde on June 26, which could delay projects or plans. If you are self-employed, you might want to revisit your business plan and develop other marketing ideas in case you run into obstacles. Business partnerships are an emphasis late in the month, after the solstice on June 21. This is an excellent time to network and collaborate. If you have conflicts with colleagues on June 27, try to keep the long-term vision in focus.
Venus moves through your seventh house until June 13, shining her light on your relationships. Romantic interests could pique your curiosity early in the month. Shifts are happening with the way you express yourself in relationships. You might find you’re bolder, saying things you may never have said in the past. This is part of a bigger chapter that has just begun for you.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18): You are turbo-charged this month and ready to make things happen in your life and in the world. What is your biggest dream? Pursue that aim with determined effort, and you will succeed. Mars in your sign fuels your drive and motivates you to take action on behalf of who or what you love. For some of you, that might mean organizing a charitable event in your community. For some, it may entail saying, “I do.” For others, that could mean saying yes to your child’s Disney cruise vacation plea. Whatever actions you take could have lasting effects. Therefore, be bold and be conscious.
Professionally, how far you expand your career depends on how you engage with your imagination. Albert Einstein said, “Your imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” Your horoscope reflects change and opportunities. Even seeming setbacks can turn out to be blessings. Therefore, adjust your attitude and keep a positive mindset.
The New Moon on June 13 is a favorable influence if you have been trying to start a family or conceive a child. Likewise, it could also be a positive influence on your relationships with your children if you’re already a parent. The first part of the month, you might have to adjust to new schedules or routines with your little ones. Enjoy them as much as possible. If you don’t have children, this could apply to your pets or your passion projects that feel like your babies. Fertility and creativity are keywords for you this month.
Mars stations retrograde on June 26, and you could reconnect with an ex late in the month. During planetary retrogrades of the relationship planets, Venus and Mars, we all get opportunities to revisit past romantic decisions, including regrets. From time to time, we might even get a second chance. Since this is in your sign, you will feel this more than others. Try to stay in the present. On June 21, Venus in your seventh house of partnerships could help spark a connection. If you are single, this could be a favorable time to meet someone new.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20): Astrologer and host of the Visionary Activist Show Caroline Casey often says, “Magic is cooperating with everything.” As the mystic of the Zodiac, you were born with a natural proclivity for magic. How can you experience more magic in your life? Follow synchronicity. For example, if you keep noticing 11:11 or any other number sequences, you are in the flow. That’s synchronicity. If you find symbols and signs in your environment, you are in communication (and cooperation) with nature about something magical manifesting in your life. Perhaps you have lost faith and don’t feel very connected. If so, you could experience a shift around June 1-2, when Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune aspect one another in harmonious ways.
New life abounds. It’s everywhere. You can see it in nature and maybe even in your life. If you have been trying to conceive a child or thinking about adopting a pet, you might consider starting the process this month before July’s New Moon in your sector of children. Prepare yourself and your home this New Moon, June 13.
Professionally, this month offers opportunities for teaching, writing, speaking, and travel. They may not manifest until later in the year, but you could hear some favorable news. Creative ideas abound, especially after June 12. You are entering a prolific period.
Mars stations retrograde on June 26, and you could grow nostalgic about past relationships. Before you call your ex to reconnect, stop and take inventory of the reasons why the relationship did not work out in the first place. Ask yourself if you really want to go back, and if your heart says an emphatic yes, then place that call. As Venus moves through your romance sector at the beginning of the month, you might attract a new love interest (if you’re single). The solstice on June 21 ushers in a period of heightened romance. That said, with all of your relationships, keep this in mind: The brighter you shine your light, the less you ever have to stand in someone else’s shadow.
