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. In this June 2020 Monthly horoscope, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, the founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening this month that will affect every sign.
June begins with a game-changing Lunar Eclipse in philosophical and adventurous Sagittarius (June 5), which pushes us to let go of outdated or counterproductive beliefs, thinking, and habits (especially where love and relationships are concerned). This eclipse will also demand that we improve our fact-checking abilities, and focus on small, incremental goal setting.
Fact-checking and keeping things simple will be particularly important when communicative Mercury goes retrograde in intuitive Cancer on the 18th. As Mercury retrograde periods are better for tying up loose ends rather than beginning new projects, Mercury retrograde in Cancer will also make it difficult to remain objective; making it a better time for sorting out emotional entanglements or matters relating to home and family finances.
By the 20th, the summer officially kicks off, bringing Cancer season along with it, putting the focus on our emotional security and nourishment, especially with the Solar Eclipse in Cancer on June 21. Under this eclipse we can expect emotions to be running high, making self-care and tenderness important. Additionally, this eclipse will push us to focus on things that bring internal reward rather than external.
On the 23rd, dreamy Neptune in Pisces goes retrograde, heightening the confusion in the air, and making it even more necessary to stay focused.
When Venus retrograde ends on the 25th, we get back on track with romance and relationships. Though when aggressive Mars moves home to Aries on June 27, staying there for the next six months, we may need to be mindful of flaring tempers and self-centered behavior. However, if any of us have been feeling a lack of motivation, energy, or confidence, Mars in Aries gives us the fuel needed.
Happy Birthday, Cancer!
