June 2020 Horoscopes
Our shared planetary picture
There are three changes of direction this month as Mercury and Neptune go retrograde (on 18th and 23rd) and Venus goes direct on 25th. A direct Venus helps harmony along but as Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter were already moving retrograde as June began, we have on average half the planets retrograde all month. So here we are reviewing and reviewing again, many areas of life (different for each astrological sign).
Two of these retrograde (appearing to move backwards) planets are in Capricorn, so collectively we are still reviewing our governments and structures that we have arranged our world and countries around. Jupiter moves back to meet Pluto once again at the end of the month which was one of the markers that led us to our present situation during the second half of March. Changes that took places then, need reviewing.
Saturn is also retrograde in Aquarius which examines how we live together and arrange and run our societies nationally and internationally. This started on March 22nd and we now have the last stretch of its three-month stay in Aquarius until it returns full-time in December (for over two years).
Our summer solstice on 20th involves a solar eclipse too, belonging to an eclipse family that carries the difficult themes of restrictions, illusions and difficulty assessing situations… Does that remind you of anything? (The impact of an eclipse is felt a few months before and a few months after it actually occurs).
Mars leaps into its own sign Aries on 28th for a 6-month stay. This is three times longer than its usual stay in a sign. But we may need Mars in decisive, action-packed Aries to get the ball rolling and sort us all out!
So what will this mean for us all?
Read the horoscope for your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign if you know it.
Aries: Your ruling planet Mars meets up with Neptune this month in your 12th House of the unconscious. This means activity behind the scenes. And could include: taking action on the charitable front or doing much soul-searching or even hitting the bottle (or whatever your favourite means of escape is) and escape will look like a very attractive option. Dreams and visions will be strong and at best, you could give birth to something creative.
The eclipse on the solstice falls in your 4th House of mother and home, self-nurture and personal development. This is an area of life where we expect to find comfort but comfort may be harder to find. Make sure at least that you are seeing to the basics I.e. eating helpful food.
Mercury goes retrograde in this same area of your solar chart from 18th. So one, some or all of these matters require more thought. Dealings with mother-figures may be trickier than usual too. Be as clear as you can be to avoid misunderstandings.
As the month draws to an end, Jupiter rejoins Pluto in your father, career and social status zone. Could that be another crunch coming up? Thank goodness Arians have enough initiative to deal with almost anything and when Mars enters your sign on 28th, little can stop you!
Taurus: Finances continue to look confusing as the Sun squares Mars and then Neptune during the first half of the month. Any friends, collectives or organisations you have financial links with may be hard to read too. At least your ruling planet Venus goes direct on 25th in your income zone which should bring some benefit, even if only clarity as to the real situation.
Mercury planet of communication goes retrograde in your solar House of communications on 18th so if you have any important correspondence to see to, make sure it arrives before then. Neptune goes retrograde too from 23rd which may call for you to review your beliefs about the current collective situation.
New Moon and the solar eclipse on 20th also fall in your communications zone. You may experience waves in your way of thinking and have emotional dealings with neighbours or siblings. Physical movement and agility may come to your attention too. And creative works may be more emotional in terms of subject matter or you may invest more of yourself emotionally when giving birth to them. Keep your mind positive and be sure to get plenty of exercise.
Jupiter and Pluto are once again within range of each other this month and actually meet at the very end of the month but this time retrograde. Whatever changes have been taking place for you on the travel front or in your world view, including your beliefs: it is time to take a second look…
Gemini: The Sun ball remains in your court this month until 20th, radiating warmth, optimism and freer self-expression. Venus remains retrograde in your sign though, urging you to review your relationships, creativity and values. But on 25th it happily goes direct once again.
Finances may seem problematic, especially after your ruling planet Mercury goes retrograde on 18th, followed by New Moon and the solar eclipse on 20th. This is usually a good time to make an audit or draw up a budget that will help you to navigate the days ahead but all of this may seem hard to decipher. Do your best regardless.
Joint funds do not look any easier either as both Jupiter and Pluto move backwards through your 8th House of taxes, debts and inhertances. Birth, sex and death are also represented by this house, symbolising deep transformation.
Jupiter and Pluto meet for the second time at the end of the month which is an opportunity to review the changes you put in place during their first meeting in late March. Do you need to make further changes or put to one side the measures you have put in place over the last few months?
Mars zaps up dealings with friends, groups, community and organisations from 28th. You will find new stores of energy to apply to any or all of these. You may become more politically active too. Viva la revolution!
Cancer: Energy levels may have been low recently but that is about to change. The month before your birthday you may sometimes feel 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 20th 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.
The summer solstice is when the Sun moves into Cancer but this year it happens to also be New Moon, the start of your emotional new year. Make resolutions that will help to meet your emotional needs in the month and year ahead! This New Moon also happens to be a solar eclipse, that you may feel more than most, as it falls in your 1st House of identity.
Mercury goes retrograde in your sign too on 18th which calls for a re-think about your identity too. Which version of ‘you’ do you want to carry forward (on July 12th) when Mercury goes direct?
Jupiter rejoins Pluto in your partnerships zone towards the end of the month. This time they are both retrograde which marks another big review in relationships and partnerships (including business).
Then on 28th dynamic Mars leaps into your father, career and social status zone. Prepare for massive action!
Leo: Your ruling planet the Sun is squaring up to Mars and Neptune during the first half of the month which makes joint finances hard to fathom. Taxes, debts, inheritances and ‘the money of others’ may need sorting out and good luck!
Mercury, planet of communication goes retrograde on 18th and the New Moon and solar eclipse follow two days later, all in the same area of your solar chart – your 12th House. This may bring up waves of emotion (seemingly from nowhere) and repressed memories. You will be strongly aware of the suffering of others and also perhaps of your own suffering. Make time for rest and healing. The emotions which come up can help you to develop spiritually and creatively but if it all becomes too much, reach out for help.
Venus goes direct on 25th in your friends, groups and community zone which helps your social life along. You will also feel more adventurous when Mars leaps into your 9th House of exploration on 28th. Even if travel is not so possible, exploring different cultures and travelling in the mind still is.
Jupiter and Pluto are retrograde all month, moving ever closer to eachother in your 6th House of work, health and service to others. Many changes have already taken place since these two met for the first time in late March. Now it is time to review how you have handled these changes and whether adjustments or further major changes need to be made…
Virgo: There seems to be some conflict between partners and career or father-figures during the first half of the month as the Sun squares up to Mars and then Neptune but when Venus goes direct from 25th, authority figures are once again on your side.
Your ruling planet Mercury goes retrograde from 18th in your 11th House of friends, groups, community and organisations. New Moon and the solar eclipse on 20th, mark a fresh start in some respect but the way ahead is hard to make out just now. Your family of friends, community or movements you are involved with may feel this eclipse strongly. And you may find yourself being more political too.
Jupiter and Pluto, two planetary heavy-weights are once again close together and actually meet at the end of the month in your 5th House of love affairs, children and creativity. Whatever changes you made in late March need looking at again, especially in relation to these areas of life.
Mars leaps into your joint funds, sharing and intimacy zone on 28th. And it is in for an unusually long stay. If taxes, debts or inheritances need attending to, here is your cue. Equally if it is your emotional or sexual life that needs your time and attention, make space for that too.
Libra: Mars and Neptune meet up in your 6th House of work, health and service to others from 9th – 13th and you may find yourself busy volunteering or helping others along in some way. Your regime or daily routine may be up for scrutiny too as you try to apply mindful practices to enhance your well-being or move closer to the ‘ideal you’ physically. (Pets could feature as part of the ideal picture too this month).
Your ruling planet Venus has been reviewing your higher mind, looking at beliefs, your understanding of the world and principles. She goes direct on 25th, allowing you to start putting your conclusions into action. This would normally be a green light for travel but as that is so difficult at present, covering terrain in your mind could be a good alternative. A course of study could be one way of doing this. Is there anything that you feel drawn to learn more about?
The solar eclipse falls in your 10th House of father, career and social status. Ambitions may be hard to achieve during this period but that need not stop you doing the groundwork and making preparations. Mercury goes retrograde here too from 18th which carries the danger of misunderstandings, so be extra-clear in all of your professional communications and with father-figures.
Jupiter rejoins Pluto towards the me of the month in your 4th House of mother and home. These two are strong planets planets which in combination have the potential to go over the top in some way. They are both moving retrograde though which could indicate a review of your earlier stance or actions. Mars leaps into your partnership s zone on 28th, so lots of heat here – passion or conflict both possible…
Scorpio: Joint finances may feel a bit tricky this month, particularly in relation to your love-life or with children or your creative projects. Things may improve from 25th though when Venus goes direct and you may even benefit from any of the above or ‘the money of others’.
Your ruling planet Pluto has Jupiter within range of it once again and they actually meet for a second time this year (the first time was late-March) but this time both are retrograde. This is happening in your 3rd House of thinking, communications, short journeys, trading, physical mobility and dealings with siblings and neighbours. Time for a deep second look at one or more of these.
Mercury, planet of communication goes retrograde for us all on 18th, followed by the New Moon and solar eclipse on 20th. These all fall in your 9th House of exploration. This creates waves in how you cover terrain, be that the great outdoors, cultural studies, your world-view or how you seek the truth. Courses of deep study come into this too.
Mars leaps into your 6th House of work, health and service to others on 28th. Time to shake up your regime or find new work or new ways of doing things. Or have you thought of volunteering your sklls to help others in some way? Mars provides all the energy and resolve to get the show on the road. Fasten your seatbelt!
Sagittarius: Your ruling planet Jupiter is retrograde all month, heading towards extremist Pluto (which is also heading backwards). This falls very heavily in your 2nd House of money, possessions, security and values… These two planets joined forces for the first time the second half of March and whatever changes were brought about then, need to be reviewed. This is extreme measures part two…
The Sun in your partnerships zone is squaring Mars and then Neptune in your 4th House of mother and home during the first half of the month. This may highlight differences of approach between partners and you about the home, parenting, dealings with mother-figures, food or personal development. But for those two weeks, talking about it may not solve the problem.
On 18th Mercury goes retrograde in your joint funds zone (which includes taxes, debts, inheritances and ‘the money of others’. New Moon on 20th here calls for new measures but the solar eclipse may make that more difficult in some way. The need for intimacy arises too, both emotionally and sexually.
Dynamic Mars leaps into your 9th House of exploration on 28th where it will stay for almost six month (more on this next month). There will be much new terrain to explore which is just how you like it.
Capricorn: Well-being is high on the list as the month begins and you may find yourself wanting to do something about communications when Mars joins Neptune from 9th – 13th. Your way of thinking could be the place to start or how you communicate with siblings or neighbours. Equally, taking action on a business idea could fit the bill or perhaps putting pen to paper in a burst of creativity.
Mercury goes retrograde on 18th in your 7th House of relationships and partnerships, so a review of communications is needed here too and New Moon including a solar eclipse on 20th also highlights partnership matters. Give them your full attention.
Venus goes direct on 25th in your work, health and service to others zone which helps you to move forwards with your daily regime and perhaps work schedule. Jupiter meets Pluto in your sign too for a second time this spring but this time retrograde. This is an opportunity to review your use of power and how you have been progressing in terms of personal development. Have you been trying to change everyone else, instead of yourself?
On 28th Mars leaps into your 4th House. Time for action on the home front and time to be decisive about mother-figures and your own nurture-style if you are a mother-figure yourself. Remember self-nurture comes into this too!
Aquarius: Saturn spends its last month in your sign for the moment, requiring you to review your identity. It will be returning in December for a much longer stay but the theme of reinventing yourself remains insistent all month. Your ruling planet Uranus in your career and social standing zone agrees. What will you do next?
Finances are highlighted this month by the Sun squaring Mars and Neptune in your income zone. But try as you may, it is very difficult to get a clear picture of what is happening (or is going to happen) with your income and future security.
Mercury planet of communication goes retrograde on 18th and the New Moon and solar eclipse follow two days later, all in your 6th House of work. health and service to others. Changes need to be made here too but with a solar eclipse, seeing the way ahead is obscured. One thing very clearly in your own hands though is attending to your health, well-being and daily routine. Just do it! And if work is hard to find, how about volunteering in the area you would like to move into?
Jupiter and Pluto continue to rumble in the background as your inner-workings undergo their long and deep transformation. Repressed memories and realisations can be unearthed and your awareness of pain and suffering in the world. If it all feels too much, ask for help. This can also be a spriritually and creatively rich time.
Pisces: The Sun spends the first half of the month squaring Mars and then Neptune in your sign which indicates conflict between what is required of you career-wise and what your dreams of your ideal-self are. And when Mars meets Neptune from 9th -13th, you will hang on to your inner-resolve for dear life The demands of the world may feel harsh and reality too real. But thicken your skin as best you can and aim for the best possible outcome.
Mercury goes retrograde on 18th and the New Moon and solar eclipse on 20th all fall in your 5th House of love affairs, children and creativity. Be as clear as you can be in your communications and expect emotional waves in one or more f these areas of life.
Jupiter and Pluto are retrograde and close together all month in your 11th House of friends, groups, community, organisations and humanitarian ideals.
