With the Mercury Retrograde happening this month, you may be challenged on all your “certainties.” Especially for a Fixed Sign such as yourself, going at your own pace may just not be possible at the moment. This will be an excellent exercise for flexibility, and that should be celebrated. If you are one of those Taurus who would firmly adhere to the “it’s my way or the highway” motto this month, this kind of attitude just isn’t going to cut it. Look for alternative ways of thinking and different routes to take action. You don’t have to decide everything on a whim. Still, you shouldn’t get too fixated on only one idea either, or else Mercury will come to challenge your know-it-all attitude. It’s always good to have a plan B. Be open to listening more this month, and you might just make new discoveries that will help you in the long run.
While Mercury is in your 2nd house, you may also be called to pay more attention to how attached you are to your things. Venus-ruled Taurus has a tendency to be materialistic. This month you are challenged to redefine yourself by the things you know instead of what you have. June will be an auspicious month for the collection of intellectual properties. Ask yourself, “what can I learn this month?” It doesn’t have to be anything academic and pompous. Even diving deeper into a subject that you are already interested in can prove to give you a boost in confidence. The theme of this retrograde is learning to let go of the material and inviting the ethereal. After all, what you know can never be lost.
Saturn is also another significant retrograde for the month. This happens in your 10th house, and it’s all about how you present yourself to others. Saturn, even when direct, has a tendency to slow things down. In this transit, the planet will be in its domicile (Aquarius), which means its effects are more potent than ever. Going slow with the flow is rarely ever a problem for Taurus, but this transit is not so much about the pace. Even though you can keep up with Saturn’s speed, here the planet is giving you a chance to take a second look at how you are taking care of yourself. Have you perhaps been sloppy and lazy lately? If so, take advantage of this retrograde to get your self-care game on again. Especially when it comes to your reputation, you don’t want others to see you as someone who isn’t dressed for the part they want to play.
While this retrograde is happening, Saturn will also be square Uranus who is in your first house. We have briefly mentioned the concept of reinvention earlier, but this is the aspect that will really push you to take a second look at yourself. This transit is making a square with your 1st and 10th house. This is about who you are and what you do, and with Uranus, in the equation, you may be in for a little bit of an identity crisis. This will be a time to shed the old skin and say hello to a new you fresh out of the oven. Take this time to envision where you want to be better and do better without any sense of restrictions. Uranus is here to break all of the boundaries created by Saturn, so let your imagination go wild. Who would you be if you had the opportunity to rebuild yourself from the ground up? Get thinking of an answer because this opportunity is coming.
The Lunar cycle of the month starts on the 10th with the New Moon in Gemini. This may get you in a spending mood so watch out for that. Especially with the indecisive Gemini energy, it would be a good practice to just put things on your wishlist for a week or so until you are sure you really need it. Mercury will still be retrograde at this time, so remember what we went over earlier. On the positive side, though, this is a good moon to practice some money and abundance affirmations since it is happening in your 2nd house of possessions.
The Full Moon will be happening in your fellow earth sign Capricorn. At this time, Mercury will have stationed direct, so you may feel extra positive and energetic during this day. Capricorn is all about resilience and overcoming obstacles, bringing the month to an effortless close. Since it’s happening in your 9th house, you may experience some vivid dreams during that night, and it would be wise to keep a dream journal by your bedside so you can look up what it means later. It could bring some powerful insights into any major plans you are currently pondering on in your life, particularly travel plans. Let the Capricorn energy take you beyond your imagination.
