As much as you love instant results and promptness, June forces you to slow down and avoid shortcuts, Aries. With over half of the planets in retrograde, life’s pace slows to a crawl. You will need to learn the value of patience and consistent, methodical action.
You may be feeling defensive and territorial as you enter June thanks to Jupiter’s quintile to Chiron on the 1st. With Chiron in your own sign, this is a cue to do some emotional spring-cleaning and transcend all you believe makes you worthy of rejection. Jupiter expands everything it touches, so you can expect these perceived inadequacies to challenge who you think you are. The knee-jerk reaction is to shut down in the face of others’ feelings, but if you conquer the fear of abandonment, you’ll find mentors and teachers are willing to help you face your own vulnerability.
Indeed, as Pallas stations retrograde in your tenth house of career, a professional learning opportunity manifests. Keep your eyes open for an opportunity around the 2nd. With this executive ability to plan your own life direction, you can suddenly see patterns that shape your public reputation.
It’s important to get out of the house this first week of June, especially as Vesta enters your fourth house on the 3rd. This is a great time to focus on the emotional side of a situation although you may battle with choosing between your sense of duty and your longing for freedom.
The Full Moon lunar eclipse on June 5th poses a threat to harmony in relationships. Overconfidence could lead to your downfall in matters of higher education, legal disputes, or neighbors. In fellow fire sign Sagittarius, this eclipse squares your ruling planet Mars: this is not a time to act on your impulses. The tendency for arguments and rage is high, so stay calm and take a deep breath. While you’re likely to find yourself in unfamiliar territory, this is a chance to consider the bigger picture of life expand your beliefs. Your perceptions, worldview, and finances are encountering a shakeup, so invite new ways of thinking and get out of the house for a bit!
If you’re finding yourself in a bit of a rut lately, June 10th comes to your rescue. Uranus’ semi-sextile to Chiron is anything but mundane and provokes your curiosity with a lightning-strike disruption. Now is a great time to deviate from your routine and experiment with how you earn income.
Don’t run from the past though, Aries. Mercury stations retrograde in your fourth house on June 18th, bringing with it a prime opportunity to revise and reorganize old projects. The next three weeks will certainly have you rethinking your course in light of detours and delays from your sectors of home and family. Ego confrontations with family members and roommates are likely, but you can ward off the hostility by tending to your “nest.” Do your best to set aside some money though as it’s likely an unexpected house repair will need your attention soon.
When the Sun enters Cancer on June 20th, you may be feeling more sensitive and emotional than ever before. Your concerns are focused on your most intimate personal life, and you’re yearning for comfort and relaxation. With so much nostalgia in the air, you would do well to reflect and meditate on how your past experiences and childhood influence your life in the present.
The solar eclipse on June 21st brings even more tension to your home and personal life. If you aren’t careful, you could fall headfirst into a heated argument with a parental figure or someone close to you. Expect to see dramas play out in the lives of family members but be wary of the temptation to repeat the past.
It’s time to dissolve old behaviors and create something new.
You can encourage love and compassion by investing in a dream journal or other meditative exercises. Let your imagination flow onto the paper. Particularly on the 23rd, you’ll want to face your fears head-on and look squarely at where exactly you’re deluding yourself. Yes, Neptune’s retrograde in your twelfth house will test your intentions and your beliefs, but this is happening so you can trade an idealized illusion for a magical tangible reality.
Towards the end of the month, things pick up speed. Your ruling planet Mars enters Aries on the 27th and grants you the forward-looking independent energy you’ve been waiting for all year. The conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn a few days later influences you to make a passionate change of plans in business and public appearance.
As you exit June, you carry an incessant drive for success and accomplishment. Thanks to the emotional turmoil this month has dragged you through, you approach July with confidence in your ability to dart from Point A to Point B with courage and rejuvenation.
