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 on 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.
Welcome to June, Virgo! Last month, Venus retrograde started and made romance and at-home makeovers a little harder to navigate. On Friday, June 5, there's a full moon in adventurous Sagittarius, as well as a lunar eclipse. You want to travel — now. While it's unlikely to expect any actual spontaneous travel on this date, the stars do align for some sparks to fly in your love life. Confess a secret fantasy or open up about your feelings. It's likely to be reciprocated.
Your ruling planet, messenger Mercury, enters its infamous retrograde from Wednesday, June 17 to Sunday, July 12 in cozy Cancer. This time, the planet makes no planetary aspect as it travels backward, but it is under the influence of the brightest star in the sky, Sirius. This shines some good luck on all of us and gives us a chance to correct past communication errors. Work misunderstandings will smooth over and it's a great time to apologize. Admit it, Virgo — there are a few people who you've been extra harsh with since the beginning of the pandemic. Express your gratitude for their patience.
Set limits on how much news you read.
Saturday, June 20, is a major day, but you should circle the whole weekend in your calendar. Cancer season begins, turning your attention to your home. Are you comfortable there? This date is also a new moon in Cancer, which signifies fresh starts, so if you need to make changes regarding your living situation, do it now. Deep clean, negotiate with your landlord about the rent, talk to your roommate about boundaries. See what you can to make things feel a little more workable.
This Saturday is also the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, and a Pagan celebration of abundance. Cook a big meal, put on comfy clothes, and relax. Lean into the self-care even more on Sunday, June 21, which is a solar eclipse. All eclipses are stressful wildcards, but this one shakes things up in society, so it's likely to be a stressful day. Stay in and take care of yourself.
Buckle up for a confusing news cycle, because from Monday, June 22, to Saturday, November 28, dreamy Neptune goes retrograde in whimsical Pisces, creating a fog. During these months, as the world negotiates a way to reopen, expect strange and contradictory information to come your way. You can't make Twitter go away, but you can take care of your beautiful brain by setting limits on how much news you read.
June ends on a positive note when Venus retrograde ends on Thursday, June 25. Even if the world is acting messy, you can take charge of embracing healthy communication in your friendships and romances. Stay safe and see you in July!
