After all of the recent curveballs that seem to have been coming out of the blue, although admittedly May should have been an easier ride than April, you should look for a more relaxed mood as June gets under way. Venus will enter Leo, encouraging us to strut our stuff and enjoy life to the max. Get creative, love being in love, show it with grand gestures. Ok, so there are still serious matters lurking in the background, but hey, it’s summer! Let’s play a bit.
P.S. Don’t forget, your rising sign plays a big role, so check that out as well if you know it.
Your month starts on a bright note. The planets are smiling on you on the 1st, and if you use this to be positive and proactive the mood should last. A financial boost could come your way, or you could just get a kick out of blowing your entire salary on something that catches your eye. The end result is the same, instant gratification. The 6th calls for a clearheaded approach, don’t be swayed by whims or wishful thinking. Money matters are a strong theme for you in June, Gemini.
You shouldn’t really have grounds for complaint these days. Love and life both seem to be perking up, even if friends can be a bit of wet blanket when it comes to your euphoria. Be warned, however. There is a slippery slope ahead when Neptune, your planetary ruler, goes into retrograde, in your own birth sign. It is time to have your wits about you, a time to be absolutely honest with yourself and others. Any urge to see life through rose-tinted spectacles will bring you down to earth with a bump, sooner or later.
Even though you feel as though you are being pulled in several directions at once, you should be in the frame of mind to cope and juggle things with a new-found skill. Domestic life looks as though it is on the up and up, so spend time with those you love. There is plenty of activity to keep you busy, but most of the running around and communication will be pleasant and positive. There is a sensitive period between the 7th and 9th, keep a cool head and don’t be pressured into rash moves.
June ushers in a more embracing mood, you should feel that the emotional angst you have gone through has finally been recognized. Use this month to nurture yourself and communicate your feelings rather than curl up inside yourself to escape the harsh realities around you. Support and appreciation will be there once you reach out. There may be more cash available for little luxuries that you have been forgoing, so pamper yourself and those you care about.
It’s time to get out there and make sure you are being recognized in professional circles. With the Sun highlighting your career sector it is not the time to hide your light under a bushel. Social life and networking is important this June, especially as the month opens, while more personal romantic matters should be discreet and kept private. You can cover a lot of ground in personal matters around the 18th and 19th of the month, so long as you stay focused and clearheaded.
Jump on board the general good mood on the 1st and 2nd of June. Planets in Cancer are urging you to nourish yourself emotionally, in spite of duty-driven Capricorn energy still being a dominant force. Venus will soar into your solar 10th house this month, putting you in the spotlight, especially when it comes to career and outward achievements. Make sure you are looking your best, as a stylish appearance will garner extra points. The 18th and 19th could call on you to temper idealism with commonsense in a romantic situation.
Let’s face it. The weather is getting a bit hot to handle, and you aren’t really in the mood for facing some of the issues that are coming your way. Your practical nature seems to be on hold while you neatly side step things that you need to deal with, now! That includes finances, meetings with friends and chores you have been procrastinating over. The period from the 10th to the 12th could be a wake-up call and shake you into action, and then you will be able to tackle things with your usual efficiency.
Take it easy during the first couple of weeks of June; you will need the energy for making the most of Venus cruising through your sign after mid-month. You will have that special glow that everyone finds so appealing. When Leo decides to turn on the charm, nobody can resist. The only proverbial cloud to mar your upbeat mood is a probable need to attend to a health issue. It may be a chronic condition that has become more of a problem. Deal with it; it is not likely to go away by itself.
Career matters should be satisfying as the month kicks off. This builds nicely throughout June, along with a boost to your social life and networking opportunities. Your popularity is gaining momentum, maybe because you are sending out a positive, welcoming vibe. Even though domestic and family issues are dragging down your mood at times, you seem to be learning to project yourself into the world at large and show more empathy with others. There could be news from a friend from afar around the 13th.
The people closest in your life, for better or worse, can make or break your mood this month. It seems there’s not much you can do to improve your finances, so cut back where you can and explore your credit options while the climate is supportive. Try to keep your domestic life as structured as possible, Neptune will go into a retrograde phase mid-month in your Solar 4th house, making it easy to neglect family matters and sink into a careless state of mind. Keep your mood positive and upbeat, as things will get better soon, very soon.
You should have plenty of energy at your disposal, plus enough work and play to keep you fully occupied this month. Then from the 13th of June Venus will give a boost to your close relationships. It will be easier to mend broken ties, and forge new relationships as well. Those who have already tied the knot should get in now to book an idyllic getaway for Eid, romance is in the air. Your danger zone in the coming months will lie in letting finances get out of control. When you are having fun it is easy to ignore the cost!
The first day or two of June should be perfect for spending quality time with your nearest and dearest one. Forget about responsibilities, work and all that stuff. It can wait. You have had a pretty grueling few months and may have forgotten to nurture your inner child. Even when we are all grown up we need to remember that inside of us there is a need to feel loved and protected, as well as to love and protect. Tap into that energy this month.
