Your June 2020 Horoscopes
As if this year hasn’t already been a lot, June is another whirlwind. This month has us looking for clues so we can get back on the right path. On the 3rd, Venus meets the sun, marking the halfway point of the love planet’s retrograde cycle. In a muddled time, this is a moment of clarity—revealing something we need to know about our relationships, our money or our values.
Eclipse season kicks off with a lunar eclipse—an extra potent full moon—in Sagittarius on June 5. Sagittarius is a sign that’s all about adventure, philosophy and being a bit of a know-it-all. Eclipses bring endings and breakthroughs, and this one is sure to show that we have a lot left to learn.
Confusion abounds in the second half of the month as 2020’s second Mercury retrograde begins on June 18th. Retrogrades are a time to reflect and in the sign of Cancer, this one wants us to review how we care for ourselves and for our loved ones. The sun follows Mercury into Cancer on the 20th (happy birthday to our crabs!). And the total solar eclipse in Cancer on the 21st brings some encouragement to build better habits for ourselves on a foundational level.
The month ends with action planet Mars moving into its home sign of Aries on the 27th. This planetary shift is a huge energetic boost that has us going after what we want with gusto—it’s no wonder a strong leader like Queen Elizabeth was born with Mars in Aries. Mars usually stays in one sign for six weeks, but due to an upcoming retrograde, Mars remains in Aries through January 2021. There are bound to be some battles ahead, so we might as well keep calm and stay hydrated.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
This month, your ruling planet Mercury slows way down and retrogrades in the sign of Cancer. This highlights the part of your chart which represents your income, finances and values. Watch out for the lunar eclipse on the 5th which may bring an argument with your partner about shared resources. As Mercury stations retrograde on the 14th, you may be getting a lot of extra cash in, but make sure it isn’t immediately going right back out. Do you really need those clogs from an Instagram ad? If you focus on restructuring your budgets throughout the month, by the 30th, you have a clearer picture of what you have and where you’re at. These details may seem boring, but getting on top of them brings major relief.
Love Horoscope: Though Venus retrograde in your sign is helping you focus on yourself rather than others, the lunar eclipse on the 5th brings a dramatic ending or breakthrough to one of your relationships. Whether it’s a romantic proposal or a messy breakup, you’ve seen what’s coming for a long time. Your friends and your group threads are there to help you process.
Money Horoscope: You’ve got nothing but cash on your mind! The solar eclipse on the 21st may also bring either an influx of cash or an unfortunate pay cut. If you focus on savings early in the month, the shift in your income won’t be as overwhelming.
As a child of the moon, you’re especially affected by this month’s eclipses. The lunar eclipse on the 5th falls in your daily grind sector and may cause a major interruption in your workflow. Try to get your most annoying errands out of the way earlier in the week to avoid a headache later on. Your season begins on the 20th (happy birthday to you!) and the solar eclipse on the 21st leaves you feeling both inspired and self-conscious. You’re being challenged to be more vulnerable, so why not go with it?
Love Horoscope: On the 13th, as Mars meets up with illusion-master Neptune in Pisces, you are likely to get very caught up in a romantic fantasy. You’re bitter that your big trip was cancelled whether it was your honeymoon or a clandestine getaway to see a lover abroad. If you’re partnered, on the 30th, you need to make good on a promise you made to your boo back in April. Keep showing up for what matters.
Money Horoscope: Though things are mostly steady and quiet for you on the financial front this month, as Mars enters your career sector on the 27th, you get the urge to look for a new job or take the lead on a project. Try not to do too much extra work without being compensated. On the 28th, look for support from a network you’ve already built—coworkers or favorite clients—to keep moving ahead.
As June begins, you are really flexing your social skills—holding distance hangs with friends, organizing a fundraiser on Zoom and fielding phone calls from distressed coworkers who are fed up with your boss. What feels pleasant on the 3rd starts irritating you on the 6th and becomes completely unmanageable by the 11th. You’re always a charmer but you need to reclaim some of your solitude. As the sun enters Cancer and your unconscious sector on the 20th, schedule a digital detox and step away from your phone. The solar eclipse on the 21st lets you know how strong your boundaries really are.
Love Horoscope: The lunar eclipse on the 5th highlights your romance sector and may put you in the center of some drama. If you’ve been flirting with a lot of hotties on the apps during quarantine, it might be time to finally go on a social distance date…or two…or three. If you’re not looking for love, do something artistic that makes a statement on this day instead.
Money Horoscope: On the 13th, you may get approved for refinancing or have your credit card limit unexpectedly raised, but talk to the right people and read the fine print before signing off on anything. The offer you receive may actually be too good to be true.
Communicative Mercury—your ruling planet—spends the entire month of June (and all of July as well) in the sensitive sign of Cancer, highlighting your social life and networking skills. Though so much of this month is public-facing, the lunar eclipse on the 5th brings your attention home. Whether there’s escalating drama with your family or your roommates, problems come to the surface so you can set better boundaries in your private space. Mercury stations retrograde on the 14th, and you notice that many old friends and acquaintances are coming back into your life. These people are reappearing so you can connect with a forgotten dream. And by the 30th, you feel open enough to pitch one of your craziest collaborative ideas.
Love Horoscope: A passionate fight with your partner on the 13th leads to even more passionate makeup sex. If you’re taken, you are spending a lot of this month catering to your boyfriend’s needs or taking on extra responsibilities while your wife works overtime.

Money Horoscope: Work has been all over the place for the last few weeks, but on the 3rd, you may finally get a handle on all of your projects. On the 27th and 28th, as Mars moves into your shared resources sector, you start aggressively seeking new clients or a raise.
With your ruling planet Venus still retrograde in the part of your chart that represents both higher learning and foreign travel, you are likely all caught up in expanding your knowledge and skills (cause let’s face it, you’re not getting on a plane anytime soon). On the 3rd, a new idea or practice that has been alluding you finally makes sense. Mercury stations retrograde on the 14th delaying an important meeting with your boss until later in the summer. Then Cancer season begins on the 20th and the solar eclipse on the 21st marks a climax for your professional life. Are you getting published? Promoted? Whatever it is, embrace the spotlight instead of running away.

Action planet Mars—your ruling planet—is still swimming through dreamy Pisces and your creativity sector at the top of the month. But all of the energy you’re putting into your personal desires upsets your partner on the 2nd and throws things off balance at work on the 6th. How can you go after what you want without getting in everyone else’s way? This all comes to a climax on the 13th when a romantic evening leaves you more exhausted than inspired.

By later in the month, you’re definitely feeling more confident and on the 20th, you’re able to make some financial moves with the help of your family.

Money Horoscope: With Mars in your financial sector for most of the month, you may notice that all that money coming your way goes as quickly as it showed up in your bank account.
