Your June Love & Sex Horoscope: True Romance Vibes
Big blue skies, luminous sunshine, and breathtaking blooms—with the summer solstice in its wake, is there anything more sweet and warm than the month of June? This month’s social, party-packed, and flirtatious vibe, includes two weeks of curious, friendly Gemini season, and two weeks of romantic, family-oriented Cancer season.
This special Gemini and Cancer collaboration makes June a fertile ground for both embracing spirited and adventurous actions, and cozying up with those you love. Thus, it’s a prime time for making romantic sparks fly in your relationships.
Astrological ‘Love’ Dates to Watch for in June 2019
The month kicks off with a harmonious trine between Venus (planet of love) in Taurus and Pluto (planet of transformation) in Capricorn on June 2. This magical meet-up amplifies our desires for love, affection, intimacy, and deep connection. Because it’s happening in two earth signs, we’re more likely to seek fulfillment in pragmatic ways—showing our lovers how much we care through concrete action and down-to-earth heart-to-hearts.
Self-expression is a major theme we’ll do well to embrace, as it’s Gemini season, and this air sign is ruled by Mercury (planet of communication). This will be true especially around June 3, when the new moon falls in the sign of the Twins, and we’ll be envisioning and setting intentions and reflecting on how we share our thoughts, ideas, hopes, and dreams in order to connect with those we love.
However, Mercury will travel through Cancer from June 4-26, infusing our interactions with more emotion, sentimentality, and sensitivity. Instead of communicating for communication’s sake (the Gemini way!), we’ll be driven to speak from our hearts. That said, Venus travels through Gemini from June 8-July 3, encouraging us to approach our flirtations and romantic exchanges with a playful, light-hearted, witty vibe. This Mercury-Venus combo can fuel a craving for deep, heartfelt conversation and all different kinds of stimulation—whether that’s from different objects of affection or from a mix of varied activities you want to enjoy with your S.O.

On June 14, Mars (planet of passion) in Cancer forms a pleasurable trine to Neptune (planet of illusion) in Pisces, upping our appetites for sensual, passionate, otherworldly romance. This dreamy aspect is quickly followed, on June 17, by a fiery full moon in Sagittarius, which is sure to spur a need to shake up monotonous routines with horizon-broadening, risk-taking, and bold adventure-seeking. Even if you don’t head out on a wild road trip with your love, exploring new terrain together can make for fireworks.
From June 21-July 22, the sun moves through Cancer, encouraging us to be even more confident ~in our feelings~, and from June 21-November 27, Neptune will be retrograde in Pisces, bringing clarity to previous blind spots or areas where we’ve been all too content to rock rose-colored glasses.
The month ends on a high-note for passionate, romantic communication, thanks to Mercury’s journey through cinematic love-seeking fire sign Leo from June 26-July 19 (although it will go retrograde on July 7, so make the most of its theatrical, creative influence before then).
Here’s what each sign can expect between the sheets this June. (If you know your rising sign, you’d do well to check out that sign’s forecast, too.)

Aries (March 21–April 19)
Around June 17, the full moon in your ninth house of adventure fires up your thirst for an extraordinary experience. Whether you plan an impromptu trip with your partner or explore a whole new frontier with your wellness plan or career, you’ll be feeling more vital, curious, and ready for groundbreaking change.

The gist: You’re going to want to step up your sexting game.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
On June 2, Venus in your sign harmonizes with Pluto in your ninth house of adventure; sharing an unusual, eye-opening experience with your partner can feel positively transformative. Around June 17, the full moon lands in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. Because of this, you’ll be meditating on the ways your current relationship is fulfilling your desires—or not. Even if you’re not in a relationship, making moves that reflect your deepest desires (like investing in a non-Tinder dating app geared toward more serious relationship-seekers) can offer peace of mind.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Around June 3, the new moon in your sign kickstarts new outlooks that can set powerful intentions related to personal growth. You’ll be reflecting on the ways your current relationship or single status supports your goals. Embracing your discoveries puts you in a more empowering position going forward. With the full moon in your seventh house of partnership around June 17, you may find it’s time to have a straightforward, possibly even blunt discussion with your S.O. or someone you’ve been seeing. Getting real about your past, present, and future together may be daunting—but necessary.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Around June 3, the new moon in your twelfth house of spirituality has you reflecting on ways you can bring a little “me time” into the picture. You may even need a bit of solo time away from your partner or socializing in general—a self-care must for all Cancers. Recharging now allows you to be even more present moving forward. From June 21 to July 22, the sun in your sign gives you a burst of confidence to get after all your dreams—including your most romantic fantasies. Whatever you want is within reach.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Around June 17, the full moon in your fifth house of romance could inspire you to feel an intense need to express your feelings to someone special. You’ll do best to follow your intuition on this. If it feels good in your gut, it’s likely the right move. From June 26 to July 7, Mercury will move forward through your sign, adding even more power than usual to your ability to speak up for what you need. Having heart-to-hearts with your partner or a potential S.O. feels empowering and helps you navigate down a healing path.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Around June 17, the full moon in your fourth house of home life has you craving more quiet downtime. You might even want to be taken care of by a partner or a lover (though, as any Virgo knows, you'll loath to admit it!). Think: a home-cooked meal, massage, weekend morning spent sleeping in, etc. Now is a time to own your needs and enjoy the calming activities (or lack thereof!). From June 21 to November 27, as Neptune turns retrograde in your seventh house of partnership, you might want to unearth relationship issues you’ve been happy to gloss over lately. This reality check may not be comfortable, but it’s crucial for you to embrace in order to move forward in the healthiest, happiest way.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Around June 3, the new moon in your ninth house of adventure lights up your desire to broaden your horizons and get out of your comfort zone. If you’re a single Libra, meeting new people and having extraordinary experiences (perhaps while traveling) could set the stage for romance. If you’re attached, consider shaking up your routine with your sweetheart by hitting the road or taking a class together, which could set a sexy new tone for your bond. Around June 17, the full moon in your third house of communication could have you feeling overwhelmed with tons of plans, texts, calls, emails, etc. You’ll do well to assert your need for balance and chill time with your partner or a potential S.O.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Around June 3, the new moon in your eighth house of sexual intimacy fuels your curiosity and inspires you to explore new ways to connect with a lover. If you’ve been wanting to experiment with a certain fetish or share how you feel in a more raw, vulnerable way, go for it Scorpio. This move could do wonders for deepening your bond. From June 21 to November 27, Neptune is retrograde in your fifth house of romance, requiring you to look more realistically at the ways you’ve been relating to the object of your affection. You may be refusing to see the truth of the situation, simply because you’re in love with the idea of being in love. Now’s a crucial time to gain clarity.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
While Venus moves through your seventh house of partnership from June 8 to July 3, you’re more likely to prioritize quality one-on-one time with your mate or a potential lover. The more you feel like you’re working toward a common goal, the more connected you’ll feel. Around June 17, when the full moon is in your sign, you may be a bit frustrated if you’re not getting the amount or type of attention you want from your partner. Your emotions are more raw and sensitive now, to boot. The best way to manage this will be asserting how you feel and what you need. (Maybe even make some moon water to help you out.)

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Around June 17, the full moon in your twelfth house of spirituality will have you reflecting on all the ways you want to step up your self-care. You might even need to put plans with your sweetheart on the backburner, so you can finally use that CBD bath bomb, binge a Netflix show, and get snuggly under your weighted blanket. Ideally, your love will be super-supportive of you taking this much-deserved downtime. Then, from June 26 to July 7, Mercury moves through your eighth house of sexual intimacy, inspiring you to be more vocal about your hottest desires. Even a casual conversation can turn into a steamy encounter.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Around June 3, the new moon in your fifth house of romance arouses your thirst for a playful, joyful, flirtatious encounter with a new love or S.O. The more spontaneous you can be now Aquarius, the more satisfying the outcome will be. From June 26 to July 7, Mercury moves through your seventh house of partnership, and you have the wind in your sails if you’re motivated to join forces with your S.O. or a potential lover on a major project. Teamwork leads to success—and bolsters your bond.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Around June 3, the new moon is in your fourth house of home life, and you’ll be even more aware of and in touch with your heart’s deepest desires. It’s a powerful time for intention-setting, so you’ll do well to have those intimate conversations with loved ones and your partner about what you’re feeling and where you want to go from here. While the sun moves through your fifth house of romance from June 21 to July 22, lighthearted fun with your partner or a potential S.O. is even easier to come by. Being open to seeing where the vibe of the moment takes you could lead to a surprisingly blissful, memorable time.
