We look to astrology to provide hope and insight during difficult times. It has its limits; the best astrologers are the first to tell you that it's not a science. If it were, then horoscopes would have predicted the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting effects on your personal and professional lives. During this time, when self-care and social distancing are a priority, we won't try to predict what will happen in your career or love life because we're all at the whim of a world beyond our control. However, we will continue to share astrology to help provide guidance and magic during this unprecedented time.
Let's not mince words — June is going to be a bit of a roller coaster. The weather is getting warmer and some stay-at-home orders are being lifted, but this month is astrologically stressful. There are two eclipses, one on Friday, June 5, and another on Sunday, June 21. The first affects romantic relationships and the second brings some misinformation and political conflict. The advice for eclipses remains as it always does: Stay at home. Engage in self-care. Avoid drama.
Declutter your space, light some sage, and make your room cozy.
June also brings Mercury retrograde starting Thursday, June 18, but due to the influence of sparkly star Sirius, this one can actually help your relationships. Mercury rules communication, and all retrogrades give you a chance to correct past mistakes. If the stress of stay-at-home orders lead you to lash out at anybody, now is a wonderful time to make amends and apologize.
It's the start of Cancer season on Saturday, June 20, which turns our focus to the home. Most of us are spending more time there than ever before, so it's welcome energy. Declutter your space, light some candles, and make your room cozy. It's also the Summer Solstice, which brings an opportunity to celebrate the future. The next day, Sunday, June 21, is a bit more stressful. It's a solar eclipse which stirs up political conflict. Debates over how to handle COVID-19 will likely heat up and social media will be a nightmare. Skip the drama and have a self-care Sunday.
On Monday, June 22, the news cycle becomes even more confusing and contradictory. Dreamy Neptune goes retrograde in whimsical Pisces until Saturday, November 28. As the world figures out what's next, make sure to implement social media boundaries and self-care so you don't get lost in fear. Venus retrograde, which has been wreaking havoc on our love life, finally comes to an end on Thursday, June 25. Relationships should flow just a little bit more smoothly as new romances arise. Have fun, keep flirting, and see you in July!
