June 2019 Horoscopes
Our shared planetary picture
We have a chirpy start to the month with New Moon in Gemini on 3rd, followed by Venus gliding through Gemini from 9th. This is generally good for light communications, short journeys and catching up with others.
A build-up of planets in Cancer are taking a much more serious view though, especially from 11th – 20th when Mercury and Mars run up against the heavy-weights: Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. This is not an easy dynamic for any of us, especially Arians, Cancerians, Libran and Capricorns. The themes of frustration, force and resistance could be around and possibly a collective reminder of how power should not be used.
Ironically, later in the month the benefics Venus and Jupiter create confusion too when they oppose each other and square up to Neptune around 23rd – 24th. This can result in self-over-indulgence, killing others with kindness and generally well-meant but misleading behaviour. Be aware that some may speak with forked tongue. And try not to let your unconscious take over completely…
On a more concrete note, the 21st is the Summer Solstice (at 16.55 BST). This is the first day of summer when the Sun moves into Cancer and we experience either the longest or shortest day of the year, depending on which hemi-sphere of the world we live in.
The Sun squares Chiron, also on 27th, reminding us that just as we have wounds, so does everyone else. And that we all have a better chance of healing them if we open them to the light, rather than keeping them hidden.
So what will this mean for us all?
Read the horoscope for your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign if you know it.
Aries: Powerful forces are at play in your 10th House of father, career and social status, especially at the beginning of the month from 1st – 3rd, when Venus meets Pluto and people in authority could help you a great deal. If you happen to be such a person yourself, use your influence in the best way possible.
New Moon is also on 3rd in your communications zone. If you have been thinking about a new idea for a project, this could be the perfect time to put it into action (trading, dealing with the general public, studying and sharing your skills with others included).
Your ruling planet Mars continues to energise your 4th House of mother and home. This is good for taking action and getting things done but it can also heat things up in dealings with mother figures and in domestic relations.
Mars also runs up against a strong challenge between 11th and 20th. But what is life without a challenge? If someone else resorts to ruthlessness, do not follow suit. Communications could be a bit loaded between 15th – 19th. Be very clear in what you say. And make sure you mean it!
Taurus: Your ruling planet Venus remains in your sign until 9th, heightening your charms and attracting others to you even more than usual. Venus then glides into your 2nd House, helping your finances to look rosier. New Moon on 3rd marks a new phase here too and is the perfect time to draw up a new budget.
Take this opportunity to look at ways of increasing your sense of security (which may not be about money at all). This could be to do with creativity or a value system that gives a deeper sense of security. When Venus opposes Jupiter and squares Neptune from 23rd – 24th, you may be called upon to help others (friends, groups or charities), possibly financially.
You are mentally active all month and possibly more assertive than usual. Neighbours or siblings may be the first to become aware of this… Standing up for your principles could also be important but try not to enter into battles of will, especially around 11th – 20th when others may be doing just that.
You may find yourself wanting to talk to mother-in-law’s from 27th. Guests or creative ideas about home could arrive too. Be ready to receive, enjoy and run with them.
Gemini: The Sun ball remains in your court this month until 21st, radiating warmth, optimism and freer self-expression. New Moon on 3rd is in your sign too and marks the beginning of your personal New Year. Make resolutions that will help you to meet your emotional needs in the month and year ahead!
New Moon on 3rd is also in your sign which marks the beginning of your personal new year too. Focus on what you hope to find in your emotional life in the month and year ahead. Harmony (and even romance) may be easier to find after 9th when Venus glides into your sign, adding to your sparkle. Gifted with a silver tongue anyway, others should be on their guard!
Mars continues in your finance zone all month, making you even more entrepreneurial than usual. Your go-getting skills will be running on all four cylinders. You could even generate a new stream of income. Forge ahead up to 9th and then push forward again after 20th. (Planetary oppositions get in the way of all of us trying to make headway mid-month).
Full Moon on 17th falls in your opposite sign, when relationships and partnerships get emotionally charged. The Sun and Venus get caught up with Jupiter and Neptune too from 10th – 11th and 23rd – 24th with unclear outcomes. You have the ability to please others but do not put yourself on the wrong side of honesty in doing so…
Cancer: The month before your birthday you are often at low ebb as the Sun has been away from you for the longest time. The good news is the Sun is bringing fresh energy and a sense of renewal to you from 21st!
Your birthday whether this month or next is your personal new year and a more meaningful time to make resolutions for the year ahead than January 1st. Many Happy Solar Returns! It is also the perfect time to explore your planets for the year ahead with a good astrologer.
Your determination remains high all month as Mars continues to forge through your sign. You may be more assertive too. Your efforts may be blocked around 11th – 14th thoigh, when Mars opposes Saturn. This is frustrating but use this time for reflecting on how you have asserted yourself in the past and how you want to assert yourself in the future. By 12th you can apply your conclusions.
Partners or adversaries may not like the outcome of this review however, especially around 16th – 20th. And you could have the challenge of how to best deal with this, without backing down. Could it be that they feel threatened? If they have been making themselves too comfortable, then they may…
Leo: The first nine days of June, Venus helps you to get support for your ambitions whether these are to do with career or social status. Venus then glides into your 11th House of friends, groups, communities and humanitarian ideals. New Moon on 3rd marks a new phase in one or more of these areas of life too. Is there a group you would like to join or even form? Venus could even stir up romance here if you are open to it.
Your ruling planet the Sun runs up against Jupiter and Neptune around 10th – 11th when you need to make sure any plans for expansion are not going to be to your detriment – i.e. not over-expansion. This is a good planetary line-up for creativity though (but watch out for excessive drinking etc).
Full Moon on 17th falls in your romance, children and creativity zone. There are lots of other planetary dynamics going on around 15th – 20th too on an unconscious level and in your work, health and services to others axis. Is your daily routine getting in the way of creativity? Or is your unconscious interfering with your well-being in some way?
The Sun squares up to Chiron around 27th. This is an opportunity to illuminate any flaws in your studies, world view, belief system or legal position. The Sun is your ruling planet. Let its light shine in.
Virgo: New Moon on 3rd marks a new phase in your career, ambitions or social status. Venus joins in too from 9th which inclines people in positions of power to view you warmly. If you need their help, just ask. Try not to do this though around 23rd – 24th when Venus gets caught up in a confusing planetary line-up with Jupiter and Neptune.
There is an uncomfortable dynamic for us all from 11th – 20th this month, when Mercury and Mars oppose Saturn and Pluto. For Virgos this looks like possible conflict between individual and group demands. This could be regarding creativity, dealings with children or a dilemma between friendship and romance. Full Moon on 17th in your mother and home zone falls right in the middle of this too. Make sure you manage to look after yourself amidst any dramas that crop up.
Neptune goes retrograde on 21st in your 7th House of relationships and partnerships. Something here needs looking at again. This could be whether the dream has lived up to expectations or whether your expectations need to be reviewed. And things get even more confusing around 23rd – 24th when attempts to please others give unfathomable results. Could you have been over-idealising a certain someone? Or under-valuing yourself?
Libra: New Moon on 3rd is a good point to take a fresh look at the world. Is there somewhere you have always wanted to visit? This could be the time to make future plans or to even go now. Exploring different cultures, philosophies and spiritual practicex can be done closer to home. Take physical or meta-physical steps to make your world wider.
Your ruling planet Venus has an interesting day then too as it joins power-wielding Pluto. Sudden obsessions could occur, as could a new awareness of the power patterns you tend to fall into in relationships, especially at home and with mother-figures (or with your children if you are a mother). Try to keep an objective eye on this (although that. might not be easy at present).
You may be wanting to push ahead with ambitions but unresolved matters in your roots and foundations are not co-operating. 11th – 20th could be especially difficult. Could it be time to explore some of this early material with the support of a counsellor or therapist?
The lure of different countries and cultures gets stronger from 9th. Meeting people with different belief systems and viewpoints could bring pleasure too. Now where might you find some?
Scorpio: Venus continues to smooth relationships and partnerships until 9th. Communications are satisfying and deep too. Venus then glides into your 8th House of joint funds which is usually helpful but watch out for miscommunications around 23rd – 24th when you may lose your sense of perspective. Direct any excess energy then, into creative projects if you can.
New Moon on 3rd marks a new phase in joint funds, sharing and intimacy. Discussions around these are helpful. You can also take this opportunity to come to joint decisions on future direction and plans.
Your ruling planet Pluto runs into opposition from Mars (from 16th – 20th) and Mercury (from 18th – 19th). Try not to impose your will and ideas on others. Dialogue is fine. Just make sure it is two-way.
Principles and ethics grow in importance as the month progresses. Your curiosity may also lead you to explore different cultures and belief systems either through physical, inter-cultural or meta-physical travel. We all belong to a big, wide world.
Sagittarius: New Moon on 3rd is in your opposite sign which marks a new phase in relationships or partnerships. Venus glides in to smooth things along too from 9th, although it runs into some opposition around 23rd – 24th. If something seems too good to be true then, it probably is… Be aware of how far you go in pleasing others too. It could be misleading as they may expect it to continue and for you this may just be a passing phase (which is fine if you make it clear).
Finances continue to look gritty as Saturn and Pluto get closer to each other. Minimalism could be one answer. Pushy financial or intimate demands from others (or yourself) could cause all sorts of dilemmas and crash straight into your bank balance, sense of security or values, especially between 11th – 20th. Full Moon in your sign on 17th (09.32 BST), in the middle of all of this, adds to the raised temperature too.
Neptune goes retrograde on 21st, indicating that your dream home, dealings with mother figures or your nurturing style (including self-nurture) may need reassessing. And it may take some months of reflection before you feel you know how to proceed.
Lighter relief comes in the form of Mercury from 27th, beckoning you on to distant horizons. Time for a trip, a new course of study or cultural exploration?
Capricorn: Good times continue during the first nine days of June as Venus glides through your 5th House of romance, children and creativity. And New Moon on 3rd marks a fresh start in your working life, health or daily routine. Could it be time for a new job or health regime? And what about devoting some of your time to being of service to others? These areas of life are central to your well-being. Take a fresh look at some or all of them.
Venus brings pleasurable from 9th onwards in one or more of these areas of life too. Relations with colleagues and daily companions go well. Romance could even be in the air. And attending to your daily rituals can be a source of pleasure and comfort too.
Planetarily it is looking like partners may not agree with you on a number of matters this month, especially from 11th – 20th. Keep communications civil and make room for both points of view to be heard. Your survival does not depend on being ‘right’. And listening to others will not diminish you. You might even learn something. Others will also listen to you better, if they can see you are listening to them.
The Sun and Chiron may bring up childhood wounds around 27th. Take this opportunity to make time and lend an ear to your inner-child.
Aquarius: Harmony at home continues for the first nine days of June, then Venus glides into your 5th House of romance, children and creativity. Make time to enjoy some or all of these. New Moon on 3rd marks a new phase here too. The only danger is over-indulging around 23rd – 24th. Watch spending then as you might be more susceptible to sales pitches and Neptune could confuse the rational eye…
There is lots going on in your 6th House of work, health and service to others too. Mars valiantly presses forward in its mission to find new work or a healthier regime. Mercury keeps your mind busy with communications and new ideas. And the Sun provides fresh light from 21st onwards.
Saturn and Pluto operating from your unconscious, may get in the way of work or health goals around 11th – 20th though. Rather than force things, take this time to reflect, review and fine-tune your plans and intentions. Look at ways of getting your unconscious on board too (hypnosis, affirmations, therapy or meditation perhaps?).
On 27th the Sun brings to light aspects of your conscious mind or communications that do not serve you well. Thoughts and ideas around partnerships begin to emerge then too. Notice what they tell you.
Pisces: New Moon on 3rd marks a fresh start in your mother and home zone. Are there any changes you would like like to make? Venus joins in too from 9th and stays all month. This usually creates pleasure in the home. You may beautify your home or want to share is pleasures with others by entertaining. Dealings with mother figures usually go well too. If making special plans, it might be a good idea to avoid 23rd – 24th though, when Venus and Jupiter square up to Neptune, creating possible confusion.
Your 5th House of romance, children and creativity is busy all month with Mars determined to push things forward but it runs into opposition around 11th – 20th from Saturn and Pluto in the form of friends, groups, community or humanitarian ideals? Or are you pushing for a friendship to be more? Or is a friend pushing you?
Your ruling planet Neptune goes retrograde on 21st in your sign. And it is time for another deep review of your identity, how it should be expressed and outlets for that expression. This is not a quick process as Neptune stays retrograde until late November. Your ‘current self’ and ‘ideal self’ may seem far apart. The challenge is to either move them closer together or to embrace and accept that gap. Feed this inner process over the coming months, with your love and attention.
