Welcome to June, fiery Leo! During May, you processed a lot of changes as many people started to fill their social calendars again thanks to the vaccine and warmer weather. Social distancing is very hard for a fire sign like you, and you've likely been eager to get back out there and strut your stuff. However, it's normal to feel a little anxiety about "returning to normal," even if you are a fabulous Leo with perfect hair.
On Wednesday, June 2, Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and abundance enters caring Cancer and your 12th House of the Unconscious. This mysterious sector of our chart rules karma and secrets. Prepare for big revelations in your love life. If you shacked up with someone during the pandemic you only feel so-so about, then it's time to say bye-bye. Be brave, Leo, and get honest with your lovers and crushes before the stars do it for you.
One of your major themes for June is to (kindly) let go of relationships that no longer serve you.
Thursday, June 10, brings a chaotic new moon and solar eclipse in Gemini and your 11th House of Friendship. Solar eclipses can turn the whole world into a casino; you never know if you're going to win big or go home empty. Because you're ruled by the sun, you're extra affected by such events. Tense conversations may erupt, or if you've been hanging on to a friendship that's past its due date, it may be time to let it go. Echoing sentiments from your romantic life above, one of your major themes for June is to (kindly) let go of relationships that no longer serve you to make room for healthier new ones.
Thankfully, when fighter planet Mars enters your sign on Tuesday, May 11, you'll be feeling stronger and more confident than ever. Perhaps once upon a time you'd put up with someone ignoring boundaries and blowing up your phone after you told them to keep a distance, but not now. Hold your ground and roar back at negative people like the powerful lion that you are.
It's the Summer Solstice, which is a great excuse to put flowers in your hair and watch the sunset.
Circle Sunday, June 20th, in your calendar, because it's one of the biggest astrological days of the month. To start, it's the Summer Solstice, which the longest day of the year. This is a great excuse to put flowers in your hair and watch the sunset. It's also a holiday for fresh starts, so breathe out all the negativity you've gone through over the past year with an extra meditation today. This date is also the start of warm and beautiful (if not a bit melancholy) Cancer season. Try to plan an affordable weekend getaway with friends, family, or a lover to celebrate the beauty of summer.
Finally, Sunday, June 20, also marks the start of Jupiter retrograde, which will last until Sunday, October 17. When the retrograde begins, Jupiter is in emotional Pisces and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Transformation. Let's be honest, Leo, did you really let go of your lukewarm COVID-19 romance? Jupiter is a lucky planet, but when it goes retrograde it reads your life and throws out any illusions. If you haven't already had a firm conversation with anyone who has been dragging you down, then Jupiter will help.
The planet goes direct in Aquarius and your 9th House of Partnership on Sunday, October 17. This is truly fantastic news; the other signs only wish this was how their Jupiter retrograde was going to play out. This ending indicates you will clear your life of anyone who has been making you feel "less than" and end up with someone sexy, intelligent, and supportive by the end of the retrograde. If you are partnered, it could indicate that your love may finally start listening to what you need from them.
You're too hot not to feel your best, Leo.
Speaking of Mercury retrograde, it finally ends on Tuesday, June 22. Communication flows easier and travel becomes less stressful. However, don't neglect your own well-being. During the full moon in Capricorn and your 6th House of Health on Thursday, June 24, you may feel as if you've been spread too thin lately. Yes, it's been daunting to go to the doctor during the pandemic, but it's still important to stay on top of your regular check-ups. Go to your therapy appointments, eat things that make you feel good, and get plenty of sleep. You're too hot not to feel your best, Leo.
There is one more retrograde you must get through this month. Dreamy planet Neptune also starts its retrograde this month in its home sign of Pisces, and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Transformation on Friday, June 25. It stays in that sign until its retrograde ends on Wednesday, December 1. Neptune is glamourous and ethereal. Its influence can make your life feel like a fairy tale. However, when it goes retrograde, it strips away illusions, such as idealizing a partner. As the risk of sounding like a broken record, you must see relationships for what they are and only nurture those which bring joy to your life.
June brought a lot of change to your relationships, and soon, it ends on a very sexy note. Lover planet Venus enters your sign, Leo, on Thursday, December 27, pumping your love and sex life full of glitter and orgasms. This indicates a new romantic partner, crush, or gifts of affection from your current partner. Enjoy every minute of it and see you next month!
