June Monthly Horoscope - Cancer
Dear Cancer, it’s almost your month! The Sun, Mercury and Venus dance through your 12th house of solitude and introspection, your 1st house of self-image and personality and your 2nd house of money and values. These are the areas of personal focus for you this month, while on the other side of the zodiac, your 7th house of partnerships and relationships and your 8th house of shared possessions, crisis and transformation can give you quite some challenges! The Gemini New Moon on the 13th is a time when you might feel ungrounded, yet simultaneously more open to spiritual insight. You might be confused about what you believe in or how you can best assist and soothe others- for now, just set your best intentions forward and trust that the Universe will help you out to gather more useful info in these domains. On the 18th, Neptune starts retrograding in your 9th house- until this November, you’re supported to find your beliefs, intuitively serve your ideals and expand your heart. Be careful not to fall into the trap of false progress or be drawn by beliefs that don’t truly serve you.
On the 26th, Mars joins the retrograde squad in your 8th house- shared finances, debts, loans, sexuality and personal transformation through crisis are now under the magnifying glass, and this is an area where you can notice some patterns that keep repeating themselves. You might feel temporarily blocked or restricted in these domains or you might harbour repressed anger or energy. See what you can improve or re-do if you’re not satisfied, but better wait until the end of August to take any decisive action. You might feel like it’s difficult to let go of control in these areas, and this can be linked to some deeply rooted insecurities. Now you’ve got the opportunity to do self-work and bring those subconscious fears to light through shifting your perspective. On the 28th, the Capricorn Full Moon brings to light issues regarding relationships and partnerships that started this January- especially with Saturn there, it might not be easy. Keep your patience and cultivate a responsible approach, remembering that responsibility is a virtue that you have to develop in yourself, not expect from others. If you feel restricted by them in any way, maybe it’s linked to how you’re still learning to be your own inner authority. Starting from the 21st, the Sun enters your sign, so make sure the world knows how beautifully (and tenderly) you can shine ☺
Watch, Wait, Access, Act:
New Moon: 6/13
Full Moon: 6/28
Dear readers, June brings us a mix of air (Gemini and Aquarius) and water (Cancer) energy, topped by Venus and Mercury’s ingresses into fiery Leo. The first part of the month is a time to learn, make new contacts and come up with original ideas, while in the second part we slowly enter Summer’s domain and enjoy spending time with loved ones, being creative and having fun!
The month starts with a Grand Water trine on the 1st and 2nd as Venus collaborates with both Jupiter and Neptune. It’s a lovely time for empathic, heart-to-heart connection with close ones and the time is auspicious for a new romantic connection that might just be what you’ve been dreaming of all along! With the Capricorn Moon as the tip of a Kite involving the three planets, we can use this opening up of emotional gates to deepen commitment and establish a healthy discipline that nurtures the inner child. On the 5th, the Sun-Mercury conjunction in Gemini amplifies intellectual curiosity and logical thinking, though Neptune squaring this airy pair in the following days alerts us to avoid disillusionment, manipulation, rationalization or any other kind of information misuse, be it from others or even from ourselves. Sometimes solutions can come from surprising places, if we listen to our intuition instead of being caught in the same old mental chatter.
For this, we’re supported when flighty Mercury ingresses into Cancer on the 12th, marking the start of a time when our minds and our words become softer and quality (intimacy, tenderness, intuition) replaces quantity. As Mercury opposes Saturn, remember that your emotions are valid and deserve to be heard even though some unwritten social rules might say otherwise. These days might feel very emotional and uncertain, as they’re also leading up to the New Moon on the 13th. In the sign of Gemini, she suspends judgement for a moment and shows us a canvas of vast intellectual and social potential- bear with this uncertainty and only then decide on a goal, trying not to lie to yourself (too much) about what you really want. Remember your intuition! This same day is marked by Venus entering Leo. In conjunction with the North Node and in opposition with Mars in Aquarius, she emphasizes implication and passion in our hobbies and our work, a dedication that stems from social awareness and desire to contribute. Now is the time to shine on your stage of choice!
On the 18th, Neptune starts its apparent backward movement across the sky. This retrogradation lasts until November and marks a time of introspection, spirituality and heightened awareness. This can go both ways, so we can feel tempted to escape our daily life through daydreaming or addictions- it’s best if you look inside and find healthy ways to satisfy your hunger for a deeper connection with reality. Around the 19th and 20th, it’s Mercury’s turn to form a Grand Water Trine with Jupiter and Neptune (now both retrograde!), encouraging divergent, creative thinking and compassionate relating to others. This watery atmosphere is completed by the Sun entering Cancer on the 21st- summer is finally here!
On the 26th, Mars starts its retrograde motion lasting until the end of August. In these couple of months, energy might be low and it might be more difficult than usual to take initiative, start new projects or manifest yourself fully. It could feel like you’re being blocked from being original, innovative and from taking action with your group or for the larger good. It’s better to take care of projects you’ve already started and postpone major new ventures, turning inwards and analyzing your options instead. The Sun-Saturn opposition on the 27th might add to this feeling of restriction and the Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th will make it clear where you’re standing, showing you how you’ve been progressing in your career and in your personal efforts since this January. What has come to fruition since then? What hasn’t, and what can you do about it? Since the Moon conjuncts Saturn, you might go through a rougher wake-up call if your daily life is miles away from your potential. Stay patient and remember- Rome wasn’t built in a day!
On the 29th, Mercury joins Venus in fiery Leo. It’s time to make yourself heard, loud, clear and from the heart! With both Jupiter and Uranus sending squares towards these two planets, keep in mind that humility is also a virtue.
We leave June with 5 retrograde planets and strong fixed and cardinal energy in all four elements. We’re oscillating between inertia and change, as strong mental, emotional and behavioral patterns from the past threaten to pull us back. To overcome them, you have to know them first, and this is exactly what this abundance of retrogrades advises: slow down, reflect, redo and act when necessary.
