This summer’s astrology is... a lot!!! And while the movements of the planets will affect all aspects of our lives (hello, eclipse season), there is some high-key relationship drama written in the stars. With breakups, shakeups, makeups, whatever-ups, you’re basically going to be sucked into your very own rom-com. But before we take a peek into your zodiac sign’s summer storyline, let’s consult the cosmic factors setting the stage.
Eclipses = Major Changes
Get ready for some rom-com clichés because the eclipses are about to blow you away. An eclipse—whether a solar or lunar eclipse—redirects your path, speeds up your timeline, or brings unexpected changes. Eclipses often mark the OMFG moments we remember for the rest of our lives.
Summer kicks off with a lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on June 5, a highly emotional event signifying a major breakthrough or ending. Next, a solar eclipse in Cancer arrives on June 21, bringing attention to your emotional security and ushering in a new chapter. Finally, a lunar eclipse in Capricorn triggers a dramatic culmination near July 4. You’ll consider the legacy you want in your relationships. Expect to be shook to your core because by September, your love life will def look a bit different.
Venus Retrograde = The Ex Files
Still thinking about the one who got away? Yeah, you’re not alone. Venus Retrograde is adding some chaos to your summer love story, with exes and old friends popping up out of nowhere. For some, this could be a dream come true, but for others, it’s a living hell. Stuck in a time warp Insta-stalking your ex’s page? Or can’t get that lethal vampire to stop messaging you? Maybe it’s time to let it go and find closure. We began feeling the nostalgic vibes as early as mid-April, but Venus Retrograde officially began on May 13. The confusion lasts until June 25, but don’t expect to be out of the ex files completely until our goddess planet catches back up to her usual speed on July 29.
Mercury Retrograde = Mixed Messages
Big yikes. Mercury, planet of logic and communication, will be retrograde in the emotional seas of Cancer from June 18 until July 12. Expect to be lost in your feels, not knowing where you stand in your love life. This confusion will last once we get to August, when you’ll finally have more clarity.
Here’s what this all means for you:
Look who’s wearing the crown now! Whether single or attached, Aries are going to feel snatched because Mars, the planet of passion and sex, is firing up your zodiac sign from the end of June until 2021. You’re calling the shots in your relationships, and you’re going after what—and who—you want. The lunar eclipse on June 5 pushes you into new territory, and you might even go after someone who doesn’t fit your normal “type.” Then, the lunar eclipse on July 4 will give you power and prestige, so you’re def feeling yourself. You’re glowing, Aries, so go after your crush—before you know it, they could be falling for you hard.
You’re always the romantic, Taurus, but this summer it isn’t about pleasing others. It’s about pleasing yourself! In the past, you might have thought you needed an S.O. to complete you but uh, that’s the old you. Your confidence has been growing and it’s not stopping anytime soon. With Venus lighting up your income sector, you’re also feeling a bit more indulgent this summer—whether you’re single or boo’d up, you’ll be pampering yourself. With your self-worth so high, you know that a lover is an addition, not a necessity—so don’t settle for mediocre.
Prepare for the glow-up of a lifetime, Gemmy. You’re going through a radical life lesson in the love department, with Venus giving you valuable pointers. Unfortunately, some of these lessons could come as a major shock (thanks, lunar eclipses), and exes might come clamoring back into your life when you thought you’d locked and bolted the door (thanks, Venus Retrograde). With the planet of love doing a backward spiral in your zodiac sign in June, you could reconsider your beauty regimen and appearance—just don’t commit to any major changes until July.
Are you the main squeeze or the sidepiece, Cancer? That’s what’s going to be on your mind as Venus is spinning backward in your sector of privacy and secrets. Something’s not what it seems right now, and with the eclipses exposing all sorts of deets, it’s time for you to step into your personal power. If you’re in a secure relationship, this could be a time to reflect on what past loves taught you. But if you’re single and dating, consider taking it slow. Your latest right-swipe might be leaving some important info out, or you may be tempted into a relationship with someone you know you really shouldn’t pursue. However, a mega moment takes place near July 4, when you must make a pivotal decision about a relationship: Are you in or out? Taking it or leaving it? It’s now or never, Cancer, so choose wisely.
2020 will definitely be the ~summer of love~ for Leos, even with social distancing happening. I’m not talking about the “warm fuzzies” sort of feels. No, no. This is the “I think this could be the one” kind of love. Grand gestures? Running through the streets to see each other? Big posters saying, “To me, you are perfect”? Yup, all your favorite clichés could be coming your way. The lunar eclipse on June 5 ignites your heart, whether you’re single or attached, and begins a new trend of passion for the two years ahead. And with Venus dancing through your social sector for months, you’re likely to enjoy your friendships even more—or maybe realize that someone in your crew might actually be the perfect fit for you. Who doesn’t love a classic friends-to-lovers story?
Ready to live your favorite sitcom fantasy, Virgo? Yep, you’re going to be surrounded by your own clique. Single Virgos could be on the prowl, ready to hunt down some new options with their pals. Committed Virgos will definitely see their social lives heat up—even if it’s just hearing tons of juicy gossip on your latest Zoom happy hour. But the best new addition to your summer is likely at least one new BFF who joins your life. There could be a falling out with a close friend at the end of June or early July, but if that’s the case, shake it off. Some Virgos may also find themselves meeting romantic options through work, so keep your eyes peeled, but stay profesh. The lunar eclipse on July 4 is guaranteed to light up your love life, so don’t hide away.
The stars have ~passion~ written all over the sky for you, Libra. Mars, planet of S-E-X, roars into your partnership sector at the end of June for a solid six-month stay. This is tremendously unusual because Mars typically stays in one area of the sky for just over a month—yet you, Libra, get a whole six-month romp. This may manifest in a few different ways, depending on your present circumstances. On one hand, this could lead to a “hate at first sight” cliché that leads you down a warpath—with so much passion and heat, you might wonder if you actually like each other, or is the sex just that good? This is also a fab time to be on the hunt for someone with LTR-potential, but make sure they actually deserve your time.
Scorpios can expect to spend a great deal of their summer learning how to be vulnerable, open up, and heal from past relationships. You’ve been burned before, and it left scars on your heart. And you, more than any other zodiac sign, do not forgive and forget. But with Mars, planet of sex and passion, heating up your romance sector for all of June, you’re on the hunt to find someone new. If you’re already boo’d up, it’s time to spice it up. If you’re single, do your best to keep your heart open—a new crush isn’t your ex, after all.
You’re never afraid of a little drama, Sag, and you can expect plenty of it this summer! The stars are turning all eyes on you, especially during the June 5 lunar eclipse in your sign—you’re beginning an important climb to greater heights over the two years ahead. However, June will have you re-evaluating your relationship if you’re taken. You might be dealing with unexpected drama or even feeling like the spark is fading. Whether single or boo’d up, you might be missing an ex. And with this all this astro-weather in your partnership sector, ruled by the Twins, you could even be caught between two people at this time! Mars, planet of passion and sex, will bring the zest to your romantic life from the end of June until 2021—so whether you’re single or attached, expect to see a huge focus on ~love!~. If you’re single, take the initiative and go after someone. FYI, though, the solar eclipse on June 21 will activate your intimacy sector, which could bring you closer with a boo—or incinerate the connection once and for all. Choose carefully.
For many Capricorns, you’ve had a rough few years, but the stars are finally smiling on you. Some committed Caps could be at a crossroads—are you “happy enough” in your relationship, or do you want to grow with them even more? Whether you’re boo’d up or single, you’ll spend a tremendous amount of time focusing on what you want and deserve in relationships this summer—you’re not settling for “good enough.” Some Caps may even realize they’ve been stuck in a “to be continued” situation with someone—a missed connection, FWB, or ex—and realize that something needs to change. With a solar eclipse in your marriage zone on June 21, followed by a New Moon in this same sector on July 20, the Universe is incredibly set on you being with someone with long-term potential—not just someone for “right now.”
Venus, planet of pleasure and attraction, will be spinning backward in your romantic zone throughout June and still moving quite slowly in July. This means you’re likely seeing your love life through rose-colored glasses. If single, you may be sucked into the past and thinking a certain ex “could’ve been the one.” And you know what? It’s actually possible they were! During this time, you may align and start back up. However, rather than waiting for them to come to you, use Venus Retrograde to your advantage. Reach out and reignite that whirlwind romance—or finally let it go so you can clear space for someone new. Venus’s dance through your love zone will bless single or attached Aquarius alike, so devote your summer to loving purely, fully, and deeply—as if you’ve never been hurt before.
Dreamy Pisces often get lost in a romantic fantasy, and if there isn’t at least a little bit of drama, they can lose interest and swim onto their next crush. The stars are filled to the brim with cosmic ~romance~ for all Pisces this summer, so make it a priority! Many of the planets are doing a mating dance in your love sector, promising new options if you’re looking, or the ability to bring more zest into your relationship if coupled up. A solar eclipse on June 21 has soulmate potential, so be open to the possibility of a new connection if you’re single. It could truly be destiny! However, you may actually be overlooking someone who’s already in your social network. A powerful eclipse in your friendship zone on July 4 could bring exciting news about your social life. You might meet someone new through your friends, or you might realize the “right” person has always been in front of you.
