It’s time to get fired. Until June 20, the Sun is blazing through Gemini and your communicative third house, adding some spice to your conversations. During this time, brainstorm ideas with colleagues, perfect your pitches or anything else to get the creative juices flowing. On June 4, when the Gemini’s new moon lights up this intellectual and witty zone of your chart is a great time to write, teach, sell or soak up new inspiration. Since this new moon is in conjunction with harmonious Venus, the atmosphere surrounding this new phase is promising—and might even include a close friend or romantic partner. However, an opposition from structured Saturn warns you not to remember to establish clear boundaries.
All month long, you'll feel the ongoing intensity of two major aspects occurring among the slower-moving outer planets. The first is a tense square between structured Saturn and boundary-blurring Neptune, which reaches its peak on June 17. Saturn is in Sagittarius and your outspoken ninth house, while Neptune is in Pisces, your secretive twelfth house. Saturn wants discipline, while Neptune wants to keep things light and loose. This could lead to hazy plans, blurred lines and an overall confusion about where you stand. You could feel overwhelmed and pulled in too many directions, unsure of where to focus. On top of that, both planets will also be retrograde when they align, which could stir up some old "stuff" that you need to clear. Neptune goes retrograde from June 13-November 19, and Saturn is already retrograde from March 25-August 13. Delve into your past to clear away the fog—it could be an old and deeply rooted pattern.
Slow and steady, Taurus. Until June 20, the Sun is marching through Gemini, your second house of work, money and security, helping you get the job done—at your own measured pace. Cut out excess distractions, like getting sucked into dramas and picking up the slack for a lazy coworker. To increase your financial and emotional bottom line, focus on your most basic responsibilities: budgeting, meeting deadlines, being a team player. When you exercise self-sufficiency, your self-esteem will soar.
On June 3, you may be tempted to lock your sign's famous horns with a friend, lover or colleague, as a four-way planetary battle—rears its ugly head. The Sun and (normally) harmonious Venus in Gemini get into a scuffle with trash-talking Jupiter, uptight Saturn, and wishy-washy Neptune. This friction-inducing formation recalls a similar Grand Cross on May 8 (Mother's Day), so look for recurring themes of stubbornness that resurface now. Try to compromise? No one around you seems to want to budge. Maybe a friend insists on dragging you into a drama you don't even have a place in. Money matters could also play into the theatrics of the day, e.g. a co-worker makes an issue about your salary at a team meeting. Don't lend money to anyone (or borrow) if you can help it, either.
It's Gemini time and you're feeling the cosmic shift! Spring got off to a sluggish start, but with the Sun heating up your star sign until June 20, your energy is restored and renewed. Set your sights on a solo venture or personal goal, and make sure to earmark enough quality time for your hot pursuits, especially a venture that could put your name in lights.
You'll get a burst of inspiration the June 4 Gemini new moon, which is also your personal new year, astrologically speaking, since it only happens once per calendar year. This new moon will kick off a fresh six-month chapter for your most cherished ambitions. If you're considering a style revamp, the new moon is ideal to dabble or make a debut, since it will travel in close proximity to beautifying Venus. Love could also be in the air now—all the more reason to make your look stand out from the crowd. This new moon will also form a close opposition to Saturn in your relationship house, however. Don't dim your light so a close person doesn't feel threatened, Gemini, but unapologetically let yourself shine! Your personal goals may also be out-of-sync with a partner or collaborator's agenda. If your life is intertwined with this person, you may need to work out some new arrangements that allow you to follow your calling while equitably dividing duties and roles.
Until June 20, the Sun is drifting through Gemini and your twelfth house of rest, closure and solitude. This is your annual existential pause—a time to sift through old, outworn situations and tie up loose ends, in preparation for your birthday season. Pass on superfluous social gatherings and take this time to dive inward instead. Surrender to your sensitivity. Self-care is your weapon of choice on June 3 when a four-way battle puts the Sun and Venus in Gemini at odds with indulgent Jupiter, harsh Saturn and deceptive Neptune. Perfectionism and a hyper-critical streak could rear up again as nothing seems to be good enough today. Do your best not to sweat the small stuff, and avoid making any binding moves when it comes to the big stuff. While this Grand Cross could push you to the breaking point, it can also force you to make a long-overdue decision. Today's conundrum could bring tomorrow's clarity.
Harmony sweeps in to save the day on June 4, when the Gemini new moon lights up your twelfth house of spirituality and synchronicity. Since this new moon is also conjunct nurturing Venus, it's a great day to start a yoga or soul-centering practice, or begin to heal an old wound. However, heed caution as you clear out the cobwebs since serious Saturn forms a direct opposition to the new moon and warns you to take a rational approach. If there is someone you need to forgive or make amends with, you're being reminded to maintain your boundaries and protect your heart. Closure doesn't mean that this person has to remain in your life; you're just releasing the pain associated with this relationship.
The Sun is traveling through the relationship-centric parts of your chart all month, as it does every June. Take a pause from your usual independent focus and get in sync with others. The Sun is in Gemini and your committed partnerships house until June 20, which could bring both business and personal relationships to a turning point. You may have a million friends and associates, but those in your inner circle often get the short end of the stick. Focus on that smaller group of people this month—maybe even one in particular. The June 4 Gemini new moon could bring an enticing business offer, or a relationship could move to the next level of seriousness.
Pace yourself this month. Energizer Mars is retrograde until June 29, and it's in Scorpio, your twelfth house of rest. The Sun's presence in Gemini can also be a bit tiring for you under this influence. Gemini is your opposite sign, which means the Sun is at its farthest point away from your natal (birth chart) Sun now. At times you could feel a bit depressed or low-energy, especially if you spend too much time alone. The prescription for any bouts of the blues? Lean on others and spend time with generous, compassionate people who enrich your life. Your tolerance for "user-friendly" and shallow people will be paper-thin. This is also a good time to switch up your interactions. If you're usually the talker, ask more questions; if you're the de facto therapist among your friends, reveal more vulnerability instead of always having all the answers.
Until June 20, the Sun is bursting through Gemini and your fifth house of passion and joie de vivre, revitalizing a season that's been off to a slow start. Upgrade your wardrobe and put together a few stylish new outfits to rekindle your usual lust for life. For the next three weeks, excitement levels peak around a burgeoning creative project, as inspiration to express yourself becomes fully unleashed. A high-energy moment arrives June 4, when the Gemini new moon gives you an extra push to turn over a vibrant new leaf. Give yourself permission to play. Pick up a paintbrush, or mobilize your crew and hit a weekend-long music festival. This new moon is also conjunct amorous Venus, and could mark a fresh chapter in your love life. Harmonious as this may seem, however, the new moon also faces off with structured Saturn, reminding you to put basic boundaries in place, especially with friends and on social media.
A clash of wills could thwart your progress on June 3, when a four-way planetary battle—heightens the emotional strain for all zodiac signs. The Sun and Venus in Gemini get tangled up with arrogant Jupiter, regimented Saturn, and illusory Neptune in Pisces, touching down in the most stubborn and intractable parts of your chart. This echoes the same Grand Cross that took place on May 8 (Mother's Day), and you could see similar themes on this day. You could be at odds with everyone, from friends to lovers to coworkers alike, and reaching compromise could feel impossible. There could even be some financial friction thrown into the mix. But the best thing to do with all this drama is take a big step back and remain rational. Your signature Aquarian detachment is your secret weapon now.
With the Sun in Gemini and your eighth house of transformation until June 20, you may feel some deep emotional and internal shifts. This is the zone of the chart that rules merging—mind, body and soul—and it's the native house of Scorpio, as the eighth sign of the zodiac. So while you may be private, pensive and even a bit moody at times, you're also in your deep-feeling element. Joint business ventures and long-term finances also fall under the eighth house's domain. It's a good time to explore how to make your money and/or investments work harder for you. A five-star day arrives June 4, when the new moon in Gemini plants the seeds for greater intimacy, a powerful collaboration or a soul-stirring connection that could unfold in the coming six months. A strong sexual spark could heat up into something more. Caveat: The new moon is also opposite stern Saturn in your grounded second house, so keep your wits about you now. While your passionate emotions may tempt you to go from zero to sixty, try to take things a step at a time. Clarify boundaries and establish parameters ahead of time, be it in your personal life or a business transaction.
One of the month's most challenging days arrives on June 3, when the planets lock into a four-way cosmic struggle. This showdown involves the bold Sun and Venus, expansive Jupiter, serious Saturn, and illusory Neptune. Translation: You're being pulled in WAY too many directions. Under this particular aspect, you could encounter stubbornness, outsized egos and power plays. You may be guilty of waging some of these yourself! This alignment echoes the one that happened on May 8 (Mother's Day), and you may find that similar themes arise, so look back to that date. A conflict might erupt with a friend over money or you may feel pressured to spend money in an effort to keep up with the Joneses. Easy does it. Don't rush into any binding—or costly—decisions on this date.
The Sun is making its annual visit to Gemini and your eleventh house of teamwork and technology until June 20. It's time to get your big ideas out there, both virtually and in-person. With lucky Jupiter rocketing through your financial sector until September 9, you can monetize your visionary plans or even fund a world-changing venture.
The June 4 Gemini new moon is the perfect day to gather with kindred spirits or put something out into the technosphere. This moon will travel in tandem with social Venus, so say yes to a party or event where you can people who match your vibe. An image revamp—to your own appearance, your social profiles or branding (new logo and headshots, perhaps?) will help you stand out. Just keep it classy: This new moon will oppose restrained Saturn in your dramatic fifth house, indicating that a touch of added finesse will be more than enough. You want to attract attention, sure…but not the kind that alienates people and prevents them from actually hearing what you have to say. You also want to choose the groups you hang around with extra care, making sure that the time spent together will move your goals forward rather than waste your time.
This new moon will also arrive in the tailwinds of a tough day. Watch your back on June 3, when the Sun, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune lock into a tense four-way cosmic showdown—pulling you in way too many directions. This could either stir up conflict, or it could just make you feel exhausted and adrift, not sure of where to focus. Page back to May 8 (Mother's Day), when a similar planetary formation occurred. You could be pulled between your intense, wild and rebellious desires and your more conservative or detached side. Motivation and energy could also be low, and you might just have a feeling of "why bother?" Try not to invest too much emotion into these feelings or to elevate them into an existential crisis. Use this time as an opportunity to seek balance between parts of your life that may feel contradictory now.
The Sun is in Gemini and your take-charge tenth house until June 20, putting the spotlight on your career and loftiest ambitions. You've been working hard to reinvent yourself this year, thanks to expansive Jupiter visiting your sign—a once every 12 years event—from August 11, 2015 until September 9, 2016. With three months left to make your mark, this is not the summer to squander your productive hours. The June 4 Gemini new moon puts extra fuel in your tank, setting off a fresh six-month professional cycle. Plant the seeds around a big goal, apply for a new job or promotion, tell the universe (and your network) what you're really going after. With charming and social Venus traveling next to this new moon, your friends and even significant other could champion your ideas or open doors. One caveat: stern Saturn in your home and family sector will be stand opposite this new moon. You may need to set boundaries with loved ones or settle your living situation in order to really launch into this next-level stratosphere. Is it time to set up a home office or a quiet workspace for yourself/
Watch for stress on June 3, which could be one of the month's toughest days. A Grand Mutable Cross—four-way battle—erupts between the Sun, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, which are all vying for your attention from the most crucial zones of your chart. You could feel stretched thin between demands of career, relationships, home and personal goals, pushed to the brink of your (considerable) patience. Honor your limits and don't offer to take on too much. Go easy on yourself and others, and avoid making major life decisions. Extreme tolerance could be called for now. Do your best NOT to spend time around people who trigger you—although that could be a mighty long list today.
The bold Sun is in Gemini and your ninth house of freedom and expansion, urging you to exit your comfort zone and try something new. Your desire to travel is stoked by this solar phase, so sign up for fare alerts or start planning your next trip. Stroll through an unfamiliar part of town, sign up for a workshop, delve into a metaphysical book. Indulge your senses in global flavors with a change of palate. Your best day to spread your metaphorical wings arrives June 4, when the Gemini new moon sets this curious and courageous zone of your chart ablaze. The new moon is also conjunct to charming Venus, adding a harmonious aspect as you map out your worldly trajectory. But with the moon forming a near-exact opposition to serious Saturn in Sagittarius which is in your mindful third house, you'll want to proceed with caution. If you're trying to orchestrate a sabbatical abroad a la "Eat Pray Love," do your research and budget accordingly, rather than packing your bags on a whim and telling yourself everything will work out. Be extra careful when you make promises—you could easily be tempted to overcommit or take on more than you can handle. Make expectations clear and don't veer from any responsible course of action. Get all the facts upfront, and don't rush takeoff until you're crystal clear to launch.
You might want to hide under the covers on June 3, when a four-way cosmic battle—rears its ugly head. The bold Sun and Venus (your ruler) are both in Gemini and at odds with indulgent Jupiter, restrictive Saturn and confusing Neptune. While your overactive mind tries to stay on top of your mounting to-do list, don't lose sight of the big picture. Balancing your scales might seem impossible, but make your best attempts by delegating and setting reasonable expectations for what you can take on. Exercise and meditation can also help you stay sane now.
The Sun is making its annual trip through Gemini and your healthy, organized sixth house. While that might not sound like the sexiest news, you may welcome the opportunity to get your well-being and administrative affairs in order. Planting your life on terra firma helps your earthy, grounded sign feel secure—and ready to tackle your bigger goals and dreams. Since the sixth house rules service, you might enrich your lifestyle with some volunteer work or seek rewarding ways you can make a difference. Connecting to nature can also be helpful now. Pinpoint some goals and intentions, mapping out the action steps you could take to get there by the holidays. Since this new moon will travel alongside harmonious Venus, you could invite friends or your S.O. to join your efforts. Turn your clean eating mission into a social thing by organizing healthy potlucks. Or, mobilize group hikes or bike rides. Set up a swap for clothes, furniture, etc. Just edit your guest list carefully and leave the energy vampires off. Imagine the vitality you'll regain in the process, which can be redirected toward yourself.
In fact, the day before the new moon brings one of the year's tensest moments, as the Sun, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune lock into a four-way showdown—pulling you in far too many directions. Making a decision could prove impossible. Conversations could be laden with guilt trips, emotional blackmail and plenty of hot air. Reschedule any important talks or meetings if you can…and don't expect to get much accomplished if you do convene. If anything, this is a good day to get all the contrasting agendas out on the table. But reaching consensus will be nearly impossible now, so take a time-out if the atmosphere gets heated. This day could also find you lost up in your head, stuck in analysis-paralysis. Even well-meaning friends won't be able to supply much useful advice—and even if they do, you probably won't be able to hear it.
The Sun is making its annual visit to Gemini and your domestic fourth house until June 20, putting you in sensitive spirits. Use the first three weeks of the month to nest, rest and catch up with loved ones—while making plenty of time to nurture yourself. The June 4 Gemini new moon puts home and family in the forefront, and thanks to loving Venus' close proximity, you could turn over a new leaf with a relative, beautify your home, or even decide to move. This is also a good day to check: How's your work-life balance going? Since the new moon will oppose regimented Saturn in your career house, you may need to set boundaries with demanding relatives—or clients and bosses—so you get adequate personal AND work time. This will be tested on June 3, when the Sun and Venus in Gemini lock into a Grand Mutable Cross with expansive Jupiter, restrictive Saturn and your ruler, foggy Neptune. These planets will also touch the most important parts of your life, pulling you between dueling demands from family, work, a relationship and your personal projects. A relative or disapproving female could throw cold water on your dreams, especially around a relationship. Don't let this person's negativity bring you down. This Grand Cross echoes a similar four-way planetary battle that occurred on May 8 (Mother's Day), so you could see a resurgence of stress or drama that flared up then. Either way, setting boundaries will be necessary—you'll likely be susceptible to guilt trips and emotional blackmail on this day. When in doubt, wait it out: Refuse to commit to anything until you're 100 percent clear.
This June, two major aspects (angles) occur among the slower-moving outer planets, and their influence will be felt all month long. The first involves your celestial guardian Neptune (in Pisces), which is embroiled in a tricky square with Saturn in Sagittarius and your career house. Saturn is all about rigid boundaries, while Neptune is famous for blurring those lines—and their tug o' war can be trying. Neptune tempts you to escape into your own world, where you can zone out, lose track of time and follow your whims. It's time to step up and take ownership of your life. Saturn wants goals, plans and timelines…not to mention concrete results. Such a harsh dose of reality can really kill your creative buzz, Pisces, but it can also give your dreams tangible form. Strike a balance between the dreamy reverie that most Pisces prefer, and also getting s*** done.
