Get ready for a zoom-zoom, June.
With all the personal planets on the move in the signs they rule, it’s time to get rolling, flirting and launching.
Keep Chance the Rapper’s 2016 “Blessings” song on repeat all summer long; “When the praises go up, the blessings come down”, and get a move on because we are going from ground to airborne in a matter of days. With a wrenching eclipse season behind us and Mercury returning to its forward motion (June 3rd), expect things to run more smoothly, as you quickly get back up to speed. In fact, all three personal planets–Mercury, Venus, and Mars move in their home (aka favorite) signs for most of the month. Mercury speeds along in Gemini, the sign of the Twins (starting on the 13th), merrily pollinating new ideas, sampling all things shiny and bright, and scattering seeds to the wind. Venus in Taurus is attracted to all the sensual beauty and enjoyment that summer promises. Meanwhile, impatient Mars in Aries desires nothing more than to take action, motivating us to get it on—right now. We’re practically breathless writing this. It’s all about fast, hot, bold motion for most of the summer, especially the second half of the month. Expansive Jupiter in the go-get-em sign of Aries (until late October) amplifies this action-packed and without a doubt, eventful summer. While the focus is on movement, both physical and mental. Ultimately, we’re all being compelled to grow. Launch that passion project, make forward strides on the job, or take your relationship to the next level, it’s go time!

If you know your rising sign, read that first; it’s often more relevant.
GEMINI (May 21–June 20) Hey Twins, where are you going? Can we come along? Truly, you’re energized with a verve and rush of fresh air as you zoom toward your next adventure. Thanks to expansive Jupiter and dynamic Mars revving their engines in your house of friends and colleagues, the energy of the group is positively contagious. This fearless crew fuels your passion, cheering you on as you take aim at your next goal. Once your co-pilot, speedy Mercury comes back on line, you’ll be ready to hit the open road. Even if you’re not yet clear on your destination, let the enthusiasm of your pit crew carry you forward. Meantime, distance yourself from naysayers; pay attention to your thinking and to your words. Take care to choose optimistic, loving language, as elevating your mental plane now becomes a kind of magic that conjures abundance. As you recast your script and tell a new story, you write your own ticket. Whatever you do, don’t travel alone. A band of plucky collaborators will not only make the trip easier, it’ll double the fun.
CANCER (June 21–July 22) You’ve weathered a lot of storms these last two-plus years, humble Crab. It’s finally your turn to scamper along into your big dream space and get after your soul’s purpose. As you come out from the crags and bask in the sunshine this summer, allow this new level of exposure to build its own momentum. With expansive Jupiter and passionate Mars on fire in your career house, you could be propelled into a new role and rapidly up the ladder, like a hurricane. Keep yourself flowing in the social currents and fully enjoy your friends, as you could make a connection that suddenly lights up your unfolding path. Seize the opportunity; invest in yourself, take a risk. When you sink your claw into a dream, you’re unstoppable. Be present every day and guard your alone time, all in the service of clearing a path toward your fabulous future. Allow space for self-love and watch how your shell softens. By the time the Sun moves into your sign at the Summer Solstice (on the 21st), you climb out of protective mode and step into the spotlight, fully exposed. As you open your heart to the world, you fall in love with the beauty of humanity, and the feeling is mutual.
LEO (July 23–Aug. 22) Don your magician’s hat and believe in the impossible for once, Lions. This summer you’ll be compelled to lean toward the horizon, tap the depths of your wisdom, and grow your consciousness. You have a history of taking the blood, sweat, and tears route but for now, at least, it’s your inner-Merlin that you need to follow. Have faith in your dreams, embrace your imagination, and release the material concerns of how you’ll pay the bills. Go ahead, book the flight, meet with that person; start acting like a magus, and you’ll become one. It’s a lot simpler than you think. You’ll have plenty of choices before you, and what you decide will direct you toward new opportunities and perhaps a windfall of abundance. You’re drawing in people, who can help; you have what you need to create what you want. Trust that divine support is available at all times. Take note of where you might restrict yourself. Acknowledge when your ego guides you to respond in a certain way and let that go. Instead, revel in the joy, passion, and love that fills your heart. As you do, you become a beacon of light for not just your loved ones but really, anyone who’s looking.
VIRGO (Aug. 23–Sept. 22) Virgins, you are placing one foot in front of the other all summer long, embracing the mystery of not knowing the full picture but dedicating yourself to the process nevertheless. While it’s all still a bit hazy, stay open to the possibilities and use this time to get creative and brainstorm. Let it fly without applying critiquing just yet. Weight your options and pay attention to the yearning that pulls at you from beneath the surface. Think about alternative ways of sharing resources, collaborating, and opening yourself up to other people with whom you might build community. As you trust the process, a new mentor could show up to guide you toward a more abundant path. Your mantra involves the words love, explore, and create. How will you plug them into the sentences that support your next breakthrough? How do you need to get out of your own way and let the energetic exchange of reciprocity in? Independent goddess that you are, there’s great healing potential for you in asking for help and trusting that you will receive it. As you allow others to share their resources and support to help you with a new endeavor, you become more available to feel secure in your own generosity. Give and ye shall receive, ten fold, Virgo.
LIBRA (Sept. 23–Oct. 22) While your partner may be on fire, you may be burned out trying to meet their demands. Whether that’s in the bedroom or because of the constant buzz of activity and plans, keeping up with your boo might feel like too much. To find a balance, focus on the financial rewards that can come from being in a relationship. And watch how delays around receiving that inheritance, tax refund, or dividend related to shared resources ease up this month. In fact, a financial gift or ripe opportunity to invest could pop up out of the blue. Put any unexpected windfall toward your travel plans this summer. As your ruler, lovely Venus frolics in your adventure and education house later in the month, your worldview widens, and soon you may be collaborating with a team abroad. At the same time, your mind expands, and before you know it, what you’ve written on your journal pages only recently manifests into actual, real 3-D life. As you notice how your thoughts and words become reality, be careful what you wish for. Toward the end of month, the Sun moves into Cancer, followed by a new moon (on the 29th), illuminating your career house, and you could find you’re in the spotlight. Whether this means a promotion or a new role in the community, you’re gracefully becoming the person you’re meant to be. Enjoy the feeling of being relaxed and radiant as your star rises. It’s happening.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23–Nov. 21) Get back with the program, Scorpions! Your co-ruler, gung-ho Mars has lighted a fire under your tush. With enthusiastic Jupiter fanning the flames, you’re probably going to get more done over the next few months than you have in the past six months. What ever task that needs tackling—new project at work, an exercise routine, wellness regimen—you’re tagged to git er’ done. With your tank full of high-octane fuel, you’re extra active; whether its formulating a new habit, trying out a fresh yoga practice or going vegan, your plate is jammed with activities, aimed at turning your body and MO into a turbo-powered engine. That’s the good news. The downside is whether or not your partner or friends will still be talking to you by the end of the summer. A force to be reckoned with on any given day, now you’re positively unstoppable. Thank goodness that the fallout from that dicey eclipse in your sign last month is dissipating. Now that Mercury is back on line in your relationship zone, you and your significant other should be back on the same page, or at least ready to agree to disagree, especially about long-term plans. Just when you thought things were past the expiration date; your S.O. could surprise you, as they reveal some aspect of themselves you haven’t seen before. Could be exciting—unless, you’re truly over it. Whatever you do right now, it’s all about you, and that’s alright. Cue Kendrick Lamar’s genius, “I choose me, I’m sorry, I choose me.”
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22–Dec. 21) It’s graduation time, Archers. You’re moving on, and it’s time you celebrated. With your ruler, embulient Jupiter, and randy Mars bouncing in your house of pleasure and romance, it looks like a wild summer ahead. You’re up for parties, playing with kids, and stirring your creative juices. Squeeze every bit out of your days. You should be able to wrap up work projects that have been stalled the last few weeks; and you’re willing to put in long hours if you have to so you’re free to dive into an action-packed vacation. You likely have your sites set on travelling abroad. Start packing. If you’re going solo, the cosmic omens point to you meeting someone while in transit. Should a lover or partner be joining you on your adventures, they’re in for a treat. When lovely Venus skips into your relationship house toward the later part of the month, you make an ideal traveling companion. As you keep the conversations light-hearted and good times rolling, who wouldn’t want you along? The motto ‘everything in moderation’ might come in handy around the doozy of a full moon in your sign (on the 14th), as you could risk overdoing it—big time. When the Sun creeps into sensitive Cancer and your house of mystery on the 21st, your extrovertedness may dampen somewhat, as your desire for exploration pivots to more private realms. Inspired to nourish your most intimate relationship, you may want to delve into your sexuality; and you might be feeling more emotional. A lot could be bubbling up at this time. Ask for help, when you need to; it will deepen your trust in others and belief in yourself. You’re growing, Sag. Congratulations.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Outward success is tantamount to you old Goats, but you’re determined to direct your drive closer to home. Over the summer, you may visit family you haven’t seen in awhile or plan to take a trip with a parent or close family member. You’ve been putting in long hours per usual; it’s good for you to take a break and have some fun. Now that verbose Mercury is moving forward in your house of pleasure and romance, you may have more clarity about what turns you on, and you’re able to tell your sweetie what you like. Still single? You could meet someone this month, somebody outside your usual type. Stay open. They could be just what’s needed to shake up your tidy world and stir your imagination. There’s nothing like a muse to spark your creativity. Toward the end of the month, your thoughts spin back to work. Your productivity zooms forward, as you connect more effectively with co-workers and rack up kudos for a job well done. We expected nothing less. Until the end of October your ruler, serious Saturn moves backwards in your money house. Don’t freak out; this doesn’t mean your income will suffer. In fact, as you step back your build, build, build attitude toward wealth, you can focus on sorting out your finances, reviewing your budget, and reassessing your financial goals. Examine any fears you might have around money. We all have them. And work on unclogging any stagnation, be it an old pattern within yourself or in how your family relates to resources. If you’re holding onto something, now is the time to release it. As you do, a lot can become possible very quickly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20–Feb. 18) Your mind is on fire, Waterbearers. With red-hot Mars and gigantic Jupiter in your communication and commerce house, you’re motivated to get the word out. Connecting with the right people at the right time and presenting your ideas to key players, helps you get closer to what you really want. Your powers of persuasion heightened, you can convince just about anybody to buy just about anything. If you can tone down the force with which you deliver your pitch just a smidge, you’ll be remembered for your savvy instead of anything more obnoxious. Mid-month, put your ideas in writing. Chances are, if you go for broke with any backburner writing projects, the pages will come so fast and the words so frank, you could have a bestseller by the Fall. All that high-speed mental activity can wear a body down. Heed caution, as Saturn reverses course in your sign on the 4th. An old injury or ailment may require attention. This is second chance territory, an opportunity to perhaps face an old fear, and get it right this time. Make sure to be open to others who want to be supportive of you now, especially around the supermoon on the 14th. In collaborating with resourceful and skillful partners, you’ll be able to create something bigger than you could on your own. Toward the end of the month, you’ll be ready to kick back and have some fun. Brainiac that you are, you’ll want to stuff your bag full of summer reading and discuss everything under the sun with friends and even a new love interest. While we don’t advocate that old 80s adage of working hard and playing hard, you’ll likely do it anyway.
PISCES (Feb. 19–March 20) Bask in the sweetest pools this summer, Fishes. Let loose and play, relish your time swirling in the gentle currents. Allow yourself to feel good and if things start to feel bad, just keep swimming. Don’t worry about arriving at any particular place, instead, practice trying on what resonates most deeply with your soul. Meanwhile, you have plenty of possibilities to consider, regarding your next big passion project. Your mind’s abuzz, which is why just being in the moment is important now. As you clear psychic space, you allow your instincts to take the wheel and faith to buoy you. Shedding some old scales in the form of an outworn belief or viewpoint will help you to receive new information and float fresh ideas. Write them down. Any abundance coming your way is absolutely due to your talents attracting wealth and good fortune. Embrace the materializing of those dreams. This really is all of your own making. Well done, you!
ARIES (March 21–April 19) As we head into the summer (and the next two years), you’re the one to watch, Rams. With expansive Jupiter trekking through your sign, joined by your ruler, firebrand Mars, you’re coming back to yourself with an ebullience you’ve not felt in quite some time. Huzzah! Truly the protagonist in this next episode, you’re setting the tone, if not the pace, for the rest of us. While you’re probably chomping at the bit, do take care to keep your stride steady. Adrenaline surges can easily spin you straight into burnout, not to mention find you hanging on the cliff’s edge of prideful over-confidence. Take a cue from slow-moving Taurus, where speedy Mercury continues to chill until mid-month. A little preparation and clarity of intent, particularly regarding finances, goes a long way. As you consciously choose where to direct your energy and take aim at the future, you’ll make meaningful progress and your mark. Refreshed, you’re a force to be reckoned with and a leader worth following. Destiny awaits. Go get it!
TAURUS (April 20–May 20) It’s time for a reinvention, Bulls and a radical makeover requires some self reflection. As your ruler, gentle Venus encounters Uranus, the planet of upheaval and the destiny point in your sign this month, sudden realizations about yourself will abound. New insights necessitate internal adjustments. Characteristic stubbornness and aversion to change aside, when you do make big changes, the effects are substantial. It’s truly about transformation. As the atmosphere around you speeds up and everyone starts to move fast, you’ll fare best to slow down. Use your body to ground the wild energy surging through you by making time to clear your mind. While you’re at it, get curious about the new you that is forming. When Venus meets Uranus mid-month, feel the electric excitement crackling in and all around you. Whether it’s a lightbulb moment or a chance conversation with someone, it could well be the catalyst that illuminates a major direction change in your life. With your patron goddess, attractive Venus gracing your sign for most of the month, you can draw whatever it is you want to you. No need for any gauche groping or grasping. Toward the end of the month, you may feel the need to sequester yourself as the Sun moves into reclusive Cancer. While the process becomes more private, it should be quite creative. Whether you’re making art or writing a memoir, you’re finally expressing yourself authentically. We know that you will conceive of something remarkably beautiful.
