We know there's so much going on in the world. Many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. And though the stars don't have answers to the multitude of questions running through our minds, there's nothing wrong with finding solace and comfort in astrology, beauty, or any of your interests, for that matter. To learn more about how we're approaching COVID-19 at Allure, see this letter from our editors, or check out this month's full list of horoscopes for a note from our astrologer on how she's using her craft to cope.
Happy June, intense Scorpio. May asked you to come up with creative ways to stay connected with lovers. But now Venus is currently retrograde and your love life feels a little unstable. During the Sagittarius full moon on Friday, June 5, you may feel as though your emotional needs are amplified. You want attention and affection — and you want it now. This date is also a lunar eclipse, which accounts for some of the intensity. To diffuse it do an at-home workout, reach out to your therapist, or try some breathwork or meditation. If you feel the desire to act impulsively, look for healthy channels for your energy instead.
Mercury goes retrograde in cozy Cancer from__Wednesday, June 17__ to Sunday, July 12. This unique retrograde makes no planetary aspects but is influenced by the big, bright, beautiful star Sirius. It'll actually be a fairly easy retrograde for us all and will offer up a few opportunities to smooth over any past communication mishaps with friends or partners. Due to Venus retrograde and stay-at-home orders, many of us have been acting a bit over the top and Scorpios have a tendency to lash out at times like these. Apologize and show your softer side.
Encourage yourself to get excited about the future.
A cosmically big weekend begins on Saturday, June 20. It's the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, and a Pagan celebration that looks to the future. If you can safely take a walk with PPE and social distancing, try to get out of the house for a stroll to catch some sunlight. Encourage yourself to get excited about the future. It's also the first day of Cancer season, which will allow you to turn your attention to home and family. You may desperately miss loved ones, so make sure to send a text or set up a virtual hang. Saturday is also a new moon in Cancer, making it the perfect day to tend to your home environment.
The next day, Sunday, June 21, is a messy solar eclipse. Eclipses are always a little funky, but this one may highlight power struggles, which are stressful enough without a cosmic boost. If you are politically active and working for change keep fighting the good fight, but remember that it's okay to stay low-key and stick with self-care. Eclipses are unpredictable, and it may be better to wait it out until the dust settles.
Scorpios can be obsessive about details and we're in for a confusing few months. Dreamy planet Neptune goes retrograde in whimsical Pisces starting Monday, June 22, and ending Saturday, November 28. During this time, we're all going to receive conflicting and frustrating messages in the news as our society tries to get itself together. Set up some social media boundaries for yourself so you can stay calm.
Yes, June is a hectic month, but it does end on a positive note. Venus retrograde ends on Thursday, June 25, so your love and sex life should become more joyful. Stay strong and see you in July!
