June 2020

This is a powerful time to share your voice or amplify others with your platform.

Welcome to Gemini season, Libra! The sun is illuminating the sector of your chart that rules travel, education, and justice—themes that are all extremely important at this time. You’re the sign of the scales, always ready to advocate for yourself and others, and this is a powerful time to share your voice or amplify others with your platform. The sun is also illuminating the sector of your chart that rules publishing, so you can spread messages very far at this time!

June opens with your ruling planet Venus retrograde in Gemini. You’ve been called indecisive by astrologers, which isn’t always fair—you often have strong boundaries and are certain in your goals and desires. However, at this time, you’re thoughtfully weighing your options and reconsidering everything from your budget to your relationship format. You’re rethinking the philosophies, ideals, and teachings you’ve modeled your life after, and you’re also tired of ultimatums. You need partners in your life who understand nuance and gray areas like you do, and you’re especially craving intellectual connection. You’re reserving your right not to make any decisions at this time, and because Gemini is the sign of curiosity, use this time to question everything!

Venus clashes with Mars in Pisces on June 2, finding you making important changes to your plans, while a key realization concerning Venusian themes (love, money, beauty, your values) takes place on June 3 as Venus meets the sun. A conversation that’s been brewing reaches a critical climax on June 5 due to the full moon, a lunar eclipse, in Sagittarius—the sign of the truth seeker. Eclipses are known to be times when the truth is revealed, but in philosophical Sagittarius, this is especially true. If you’ve been holding something back or being dishonest about something, you may not be able to stay quiet about it anymore. You may hear some shocking news, as information is being exposed. Communication planet Mercury in Cancer also connects with brilliant Uranus in Taurus on this day, so expect some conversations concerning your career or finances to take place, too. Brilliant problem-solving energy flows, so take advantage of it! Just watch out for agitation on June 6 when the sun clashes with Mars: A change in plans is likely to take place. Avoid picking arguments, as egos are especially sensitive at this time. The sun also clashes with Neptune on June 11, kicking up confusion around scheduling. Getting anything done feels especially difficult as Mars meets Neptune on June 13. A sluggish energy flows. Watch out for dishonesty: Don’t make promises you can’t keep, and don’t expect too much from others, either. Be gentle with yourself and avoid overexertion.

Mercury, the planet of communication, commerce, and commuting, begins its retrograde in Cancer on June 18, so avoid signing contracts, holding important meetings, making big purchases, and traveling, as there may be delays or miscommunications. This Mercury retrograde is especially sensitive for your career and your reputation—be smart about what you’re posting on social media and think twice before making a major move at work. This isn’t the best time to start new projects, but it’s fine to pick up something you previously had to put on the back burner. Mercury retrograde often finds us running into people from the past, and you may even receive a reward or recognition that’s been delayed but is owed to you at this time.

Also on June 18, Mars connects with power planet Pluto in Capricorn, creating a powerful energy for accomplishing goals, despite Mercury retrograde’s delays and frustrations. The productive energy continues as Mars connects with Jupiter on June 20, the same day the sun enters Cancer—happy solstice! The sun illuminating the career sector of your chart finds you squarely focused on your future goals. You’re thinking about your legacy in a deep way and an exciting new journey in your career and popularity begins with the new moon—a solar eclipse—in Cancer on June 21. Eclipses often bring shake-ups in power, and this one is no exception. Leadership at work may change and you yourself may step down from a position to begin a new adventure or perhaps you’ll be invited to step up in a major way!

Neptune begins its retrograde on June 23, creating a dreamy atmosphere. It’s a lovely time for meditation or a stroll in a garden, but you might spill coffee on your to-do list—oops! A shift in energy takes place as your ruling planet Venus ends its retrograde on June 23: You’ve learned so much about what’s important to you and you’re ready to move forward. Your partners are more confrontational as action planet Mars enters feisty fire sign Aries on June 28. Mars in Aries revs up the relationship sector of your chart, so hammering things out in your partnerships will be a big focus. Mars is all about taking action but can be quite argumentative—you might cut things off with someone or find yourself addressing a situation with a frenemy (or enemy!).

A focused, responsible atmosphere flows as Mars connects with Saturn, also on June 28, and plans for the future are being discussed. But remember that Mercury is retrograde, so while the plans made now could work out brilliantly, the timeline for things getting done may be in flux! Mercury retrograde can cause delays, but it won’t stop a good plan from ever happening.

The month wraps up with Jupiter and Pluto meeting on June 30 in a highly private, sensitive sector of your chart, marking the beginning of a new dynamic in your home and family life. You may be exploring family treasures—or secrets! New traditions are being created, and you may be moving or expanding your home or family in some way. Boundaries, privacy, and security are big themes for you right now. Also on June 30, Mercury retrograde connects with Uranus and meets the sun, finding you making an important realization about your career, as well as receiving help from unexpected places.

Good luck this month, Libra, and see you in July!
