Happy June, dear Aquarius! At the end of May, the stars encouraged you to navigate a chaotic eclipse season by taking a break from social media. You adore technology and keeping up with the world, but sometimes even brilliant Aquariuses need to step back. When Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and abundance enters sweet Cancer and your 6th House of Help on Wednesday, June 2, continue to lay off the screentime to make room for extra sleep and sex instead. You tend to think that you're invincible and unaffected by digitally-induced stress. But, for the sake of your relationships and mental health, just take some time off to do things other than doom scroll.
Thursday, June 10 brings a dark new moon and solar eclipse in gossip-loving Gemini. Eclipses tend to cause chaos and anxiety, and Gemini's fickle nature doesn't help. This eclipse occurs in the area of your chart that rules pleasure, including romantic relationships. What do you need to do? Most importantly, resist the strong urge to pick petty fights. Sometimes you like to start fights just to show off how intelligent you are, but try to trust the stars, Aquarius. Give your relationships a chance to stay stable and healthy throughout eclipse season by not deliberately kicking the hornet's nest.
Jupiter is a lucky planet, but when it goes retrograde, we'll have to make our own good fortune.
Circle Sunday, June 20 in your calendar, because it's the busiest astrological day of the month: the Summer Solstice, which is the longest day of the year and a Midsommar-like holiday. We don't necessarily recommend you put your boyfriend inside of a bear, but you can certainly wear flowers and dance outside with your friends. Considering this date is also the start of sweet Cancer season, you may feel hungry for friendship and human connection, so celebrate the glorious sun together if you can.
Sunday, June 20 is also the first day of Jupiter retrograde, which begins in Pisces and your 2nd House of Possessions. Jupiter is a lucky planet, but when it goes retrograde, we'll have to make our own good fortune. Be mindful of your spending habits during this time, as financial responsibility may become cloudy for you. Jupiter goes direct on Sunday, October 17 in Aquarius and your 1st House of Self. During this retrograde, truth is revealed. Any lies that you've been telling yourself, such as that you're happy in a crappy relationship or don't need much sleep, come to a culmination and can knock you on your ass if you don't start listening to your intuition.
Mercury ends its retrograde on Tuesday, June 22. Technology should work better as communication flows easier, so go ahead and utilize social media in a way that feels healthy to you. A bright full moon in Capricorn falls on Thursday, June 24, asking you to turn inward. Use this powerful night to meditate on your career. June really wants you to tap into your intuition, Aquarius. Gain mental clarity and then take action to manifest your dreams into reality.
A relationship dear to your heart will become a bigger part of your life at the end of the month.
The ethereal planet Neptune also goes retrograde, in its home sign of Pisces, from Friday, June 25 to Wednesday, December 1. Echoing themes from earlier this month, when Neptune goes retrograde, it tends to reveal the naked truth. This retrograde impacts your relationship with the material world, but you may feel too dazed to remain present while enjoying earthly pleasures such as sex, food, and money. Try establishing a mediation or mindfulness practice to stay grounded.
When June comes to a close, lover planet Venus enters bold Leo and your 7th House of Partnership on Sunday, June 27. This is a very romantic transit, darling Aquarius. A relationship dear to your heart will become a bigger part of your life. Enjoy, stay safe, and see you in July!
