Venus enters Leo in June while Mercury’s retrograde phase comes to an end, just as Neptune’s begins. Saturn, meanwhile, began retracing steps through the zodiac back in March – and as these continue in June, they take it out of Sagittarius and into Scorpio to the respective delight and dismay of these two signs. But none of these celestial situations are permanent. We can all expect challenges of one kind or another to emerge in June but we can all expect to see solutions too, even in areas where we have been recently more inclined to steel ourselves for trouble.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Is there such a thing as a non-negotiable position? Can anyone ever say that here is a line they will not cross? What if they were to be offered loads of money? Or, what if they were to feel threatened? If they remained resolute on a point of principle, what if some respected authority were to reassure them that a rather different principle could be applied in this instance? In June, you will discover that it is possible to budge something that you thought could never be budged. This will be to your great benefit.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
‘It’s very nice to go traveling, but it’s so much nicer to come home…’ Frank Sinatra sang these words, Sammy Cahn wrote them and this month, who will actually be living out the spirit of the song? The person now reading this very zodiac forecast! What do I mean you are coming home? Aren’t you at home already? The word ‘home’ can have a broad meaning. It can mean, ‘connecting with your destiny’ or ‘finding yourself in your element.’ Your astrological outlook this month, implies both such favourable outcomes – and more.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, rushes like a rocket, zipping through each sign in little more than the time it takes to go on holiday or keep a ready meal fresh in a fridge. Yet this year, it stays right with you from May till July. That is enough time to change a lifestyle, break a habit and leave some unwanted aspect of the past far behind. The extended visit is due to a retrograde phase, which might also imply you spending much of this month reviewing old beliefs and recognizing new possibilities. Positive change is on the way.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
Have you ever thought about becoming President? Of where? I suspect there is not a land in the world that wouldn’t bend its rules in return for a chance to elect you as its leader. Assuming, that is, you didn’t get head-hunted on your way to that high office by a multinational looking for a new CEO. You aren’t entertaining such ambitions this month? You may be by the time that June is over. You will be taking charge of something – or someone. You will do an excellent job of knocking a situation into shape.
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
‘Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is fairest of them all?’ So says the wicked queen as she gazes at her reflection in a thousand famous fairytales. We all know what happens next, don’t we boys and girls? The magic mirror says what she doesn’t want to hear and a drama unfolds. I must warn you that, this month, if anyone needs to beware a huntsman offering a trip to the forest, it is you! Someone, somewhere, thinks you almost dangerously attractive. Rest assured, in June, you will have far more friends than enemies.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Why are there so many rules and regulations at work? All those protocols and precedents? So many legal limitations? Are they truly all required to keep the human race in check? Or do they simply exist for the benefit of lawyers to tie each other up in knots and keep their annual golf club membership fees paid up? An agreement, this month, appears to be turning into a disagreement. Resolving this matter, won’t involve clarifying the letter of the law, it will involve embracing the spirit of the law. Be kind and fair and all will be well.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
Librans are creative characters. They don’t all paint, write or make music but even the less artistic born under your sign, have an uncanny way of seeing inventive solutions to the problems that many others tend to view as tediously inescapable. With just a little flash of insight here or a spark of inspiration there, you can bring light to even the gloomiest situation, leaving others slightly dazzled and bewildered by your brilliance. Even if you currently feel daunted by an issue this month, you will yet gracefully rise above it.
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
We all have special ways to make ourselves feel good. We mop our own fevered brows and foster the idea that things are not as bad as once we might have feared. When we find that we are on the hook, we can wriggle off it by deciding that the trouble is someone else’s fault. Is it wrong to be our own best friend? Well, it is surely better than to be our own worst enemy and punish ourselves unnecessarily, with guilt and pessimism. In June, you will turn a tricky situation round with the sheer strength of your own self-belief.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
All year, so far, Saturn has been in your sign. As an ebullient Sagittarian, you have rather resented its endless insistence on the need for realism. Perhaps it is your own sheer force of will that has caused it to return for a while to its previous celestial home. You will certainly feel soon, as if a great weight has been lifted from your shoulders and that life feels much easier to enjoy in June. To turn this temporary advantage into a permanent one, make a resolution now to see more light and less gloom.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
In the past, you have had more resources available. There have been people that you felt you were able to count on and situations from which you could more easily gain support. Then, somehow, things started to change. What once seemed solid became fluid or nebulous. What should have been a source of help became a hindrance. Wouldn’t it be nice if things could go back to how they used to be? It turns out that, this month, that is all more feasible than you might have thought. June’s change will please you.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
What are you hoping to find in this forecast? An insight into your future! But then, isn’t that what you keep on looking for everywhere at the moment? Aren’t you perpetually in search of a more reassuring understanding about some seemingly unnerving situation that could potentially get worse? Might it even be that it is your very nervousness that is contributing to an inability to turn things around? You would love to believe in a hopeful idea but what if it turns out that you are wrong? This month brings you your confidence back.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
When people don’t see eye to eye, it is often because they are not communicating mouth to ear. They may be talking but are they listening? It is easy to assume an accord and it is often only when this comes under pressure that we discover how out of alignment our ideas have been. Recrimination is pointless, as is regret or resentment. This month, don’t waste time asking, ‘what has gone wrong?’ Ask instead, ‘what is it not too late to set right?’ You can heal a rift, build a bridge and claim a brighter future soon.
