Your June Horoscope: Summer Love and Yet Another Retrograde
This is it: Summer is finally here! As we move from lively Gemini season into homey and smooth Cancer season, we’re bound to see a shift happen from introspective, to emotional and “lovey dovey.” (But it’s not just sensitive Cancer that brings those feels though, numerology corroborates the shift this year too.) While the beginning of the month will be much slower, allowing for self-perception, the end of the month kicks things up with some major planetary shifts (including a retrograde!).

June starts us off with a new moon on June 3, in inquisitive Gemini. Channeling Gemini’s natural curiosity and propensity to ask grand “life questions,” this moon will likely have you thinking about the big picture. As this sign is all about groups, we’ve got the perfect group candle ritual to help you out.
Later in the month, on June 17, a full moon rises in the sky—taking on Sagittarius’s quest for process as opposed to quick and dirty success. This, unfortunately, will bring some issues to a few signs in particular. In order to ground your energy and manifest what you want, check out our crystal ritual for this full moon.
All this seems pretty manageable, right? Just wait. June 21 is when everything hits the fan. Not only is it the day the sun moves into sweet Cancer, it’s also the day of the summer solstice (woohoo, summer!), and the day Neptune turns retrograde.
With all of this happening at once, life can start to get a bit cray for the next couple months. That’s why we asked a tarot reader to pull a card for every sign to focus on this summer. Side note: If you still need more help, you can always ask a tarot reader for a personal reading.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Mars, Aries’s ruling planet, runs through Cancer this month, so you’ll likely be focused on matters of the home and the heart.

Overall, get ready to leave the past behind you.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
It’s time to embrace your potential in June, Taurus—something the new moon can help you do. In the beginning of the month, talk yourself up, bring in some self-care, pay attention to your needs.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Get ready for an emotional month as the full moon travels through your sign.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
As a structured Capricorn, it can sometimes be hard for you to let go and relax. Thankfully, the new moon in playful Gemini helps you prioritize your emotional wellbeing. And when Venus enters this sign on the eighth, you’ll get even more into the romantic and self-love vibes. And that’s a good thing, because once the sun enters Cancer, your relationships are going to become ever important.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
