We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for June 21, 2019.

The big news of the day comes courtesy of the Summer Solstice, which marks the beginning of Cancer season. With the self-expressive Sun entering the emotional realm of Cancer later in the morning, we find our attention turning towards anything and anyone that makes us feel mushy and gooey on the inside. Cancer is the sign associated with family, food, and emotional nourishment.

With the Moon still in friendly Aquarius, the emphasis remains on connecting with our friends and community. Since the Moon will be teaming up with Venus in lighthearted Gemini and Jupiter in happy-go-lucky Sagittarius during the first portion of the day, we should find ourselves feeling good, especially when we connect with others.

Meanwhile, planet Neptune (dreams, illusion) begins its five-month retrograde in intuitive Pisces today, which could help us with clearing up any confusion around anything that we haven't been able to see realistically. At the same time, between multiple planets in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces, our intuition will be a superpower.

Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your June 2019 monthly horoscope.
