Your Monthly Horoscopes: June 2022
After the tumult and chaos of April and May, we’re all ready for a cosmic cool down. Luckily, June is here to deliver just that! Usually Gemini season is a blur, but this year, it’s the comic relief that we so desperately need. Mercury ends its retrograde on the 3rd putting our communications back on track, and then on the 4th Saturn begins its own retrograde, allowing us to take a break and reflect on long-term goals.
Things are slow until mid-month when Mercury re-enters Gemini on the 13th stoking our curiosity and increasing our stamina for socializing. Then on the 14th, the full moon in Sagittarius brings us a wild and adventurous night to kick off the warmer months with a bang.
The summer solstice arrives on the 21st as the sun enters Cancer. Happy birthday to our protective and loving crabs, in good company with matriarchs like Meryl Streep and dreamy trendsetters like Lana Del Rey. Venus then leaves sensuous Taurus for witty Gemini on the 22nd, inspiring us to find summer flings who really stimulate our minds.
June ends with a highly auspicious new moon in Cancer that connects with both Venus and Jupiter. If there was ever a time to set nurturing and optimistic intentions, this is it! Neptune stations retrograde on the same day putting a dreamy filter over a once dull reality. Dream big!
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign may provide further insight.)
- Full Moon (6/14): Set off on an adventure!
- New Moon (6/28): Refresh your home
- Other Key Dates: 6/27
Conversations, community and connections are what this month is about for you, Aries. Gemini season has you stoked to come out of hibernation and get involved in all kinds of local events. You’re getting a constant stream of invites and inquiries about exciting opportunities! Whether you’re job hunting or just looking for a new hobby, this is an excellent time to learn a new skill or brush up one you already have. Your ruling planet Mars remains in your sign all month giving you a burst of energy that you won’t necessarily have access to later this summer so take advantage of the inspiration while you can. The new moon in Cancer on the 28th is one for connecting with loved ones and beautifying your home.
Love Horoscope: If you’re on the hunt for love, you might encounter someone very unexpected as Venus clashes with innovative Uranus on the 11th. This person is not in any way your usual type, but for whatever reason, you can’t get them off your mind.
Money Horoscope: Eclipse season brought a lot of shake ups to your income stream, so thankfully June is free of those fluctuations. Though you might feel more flush than usual, try to resist indulging this month and instead focus on finding the best deals. As money planet Venus squares off with frugal Saturn on the 18th, you may choose to skip plans with friends in order to save.
- Full Moon (6/14): Release debts and obligations that aren’t yours
- New Moon (6/28): Refresh your communications
- Other Key Dates: 6/11, 6/16, 6/18, 6/21, 6/22
Should you stay or should you go? The path you’re on right now has a steeper incline than you’re used to, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stay the course. Who cares if it takes longer to reach the peak? At the end of the day, you’ll get to enjoy the same view. Whether you’re considering a move, a change in your career, or a relationship commitment, your assignment this month is to prioritize your own feelings on the matter. Some of what comes up might be uncomfortable, but it’s important that you go through the ups and downs of these emotions without worrying about your effect on others. The highly fortunate new moon in Cancer on the 28th lets you get started on a few small projects that will eventually inform your next big leap.
Love Horoscope: Whether your partner is traveling, your crush isn’t showing up to the bar anymore, or you just can’t seem to click with anyone you meet on Hinge, this month finds you in a bit of a funk in the love department. Instead of going out of your way to make something work, focus on yourself instead. That said, you also might stir up a romance with someone who lives in another city. Why not improve your sexting game?
Money Horoscope: Mercury retrograde comes to an end on the 3rd and that invoice finally gets paid. After the 14th, when Mercury returns to Gemini and your money sector, you can get to organizing your budgets for the second half of the year with a better sense of your income.
- Full Moon (6/14): Claim the relationships you want to bring into your life
- New Moon (6/28): Renew your money mindset
- Other Key Dates: 6/3, 6/10, 6/13, 6/20
Last month’s eclipse season surprised you with some setbacks, and June is for slowly cleaning up the mess. Take as long as you need! Your ruling planet Mercury stations direct in your unconscious sector on the 3rd bringing a revelation about how you can shed more than a few responsibilities that aren’t yours. Mercury moving slowly for the first few weeks of the month is also a sign to keep your birthday celebrations small and manageable. Why invite everyone if there’s going to be drama? The communication planet re-enters your sign on the 14th, allowing you to pick up on work or personal projects that you abandoned at the end of May. By the new moon in Cancer on the 28th, you’re confident in what commitments are worth it.
Love Horoscope: Back in May, a friend introduced you to someone who really caught your attention, but between communication mishaps and *gestures wildly at everything*, you two have yet to meet up. But when Mercury connects with Jupiter on the 20th (for the third and final time this spring), you two finally get to have your date and the sparks fly. Don’t give up just because it hasn’t happened yet!
Money Horoscope: Cancer season (from the 21st) is the optimal time of the year for you to ask yourself what it is that you need. The new moon in Cancer on the 28th is an especially auspicious opportunity to ask for a raise, invest in a wardrobe update or buy that Vitamix of your dreams.
- Full Moon (6/14): Release fear over looming responsibilities
- New Moon (6/28): Refresh your image and self care
- Other Key Dates: 6/21
Gemini season is always the most introspective time of year for you. Though career and leadership opportunities are also coming your way in droves, as the month begins, you’re not ready to make a big announcement about any of your success. You’re more concerned with staying hydrated, taking your daily walk and lounging on the couch with your pup. Take as much time as you need in solitude because once the sun enters your sign on the 21st, you’re getting tons of extra attention. Celebrate the new moon in Cancer on the 28th as your personal new year with a wardrobe upgrade, manicure or perhaps a wild (yet wholesome) night of karaoke with your friends.
Love Horoscope: Last month’s eclipse season cleared out your romantic roster, and though it feels good to be free of draining bonds, you do miss the affection that came with them. Love planet Venus connects with Pluto on the 21st unearthing some big feels and tempting you to booty call your ex. Consider if it’s worth the hassle to bring this ghost back from the dead.
Money Horoscope: Though the first few weeks of the month might be slow socially, you’re spending a lot of money on things that boost your quality of life. Instead of that expensive group dinner, you’re upgrading your apartment sound system and repotting all your houseplants in the most beautiful ceramics. Just be careful not to go too overboard or prepare for the shock when your credit card bill arrives at the end of the month.
- Full Moon (6/14): Go after the love you crave
- New Moon (6/28): Take a moment of peace
- Other Key Dates: 6/16, 6/21
Though you’re never one to be shy, this month is for pushing your limits when it comes to networking and making social connections, at least for the first few weeks. You’re facing some huge decisions regarding both your career and your home, and the best way for you to make a decision is to bounce your ideas off friends, coworkers and honestly, anyone willing to listen. Once Cancer season begins on the 21st, you’re keen to take some time off the grid to relax and restore after a busy spring. The new moon in Cancer on the 28th is an especially fortunate moment to take a retreat by yourself or with someone you love. Deepening your relationship with meditation or spirituality, or taking a break from social media should be your top priority as summer begins.
Love Horoscope: If you’re looking for love, you might get lucky around the full moon in Sagittarius on the 14th. The best part is that you don’t have to go far to find this person: They’re a friend of a friend! Though your summer love affairs of 2020 and 2021 were a bit tempestuous, this one is simple and sweet. Just what you’ve been craving.
Money Horoscope: As Mercury stations direct on June 3rd, you finally get all the details re: a career or leadership opportunity that was first offered to you back in late April. Let’s put it this way: This offer comes with compelling compensation so leave the imposter syndrome behind and go for it!
- Full Moon (6/14): Take charge of home and family matters
- New Moon (6/28): Revitalize your friendships and social life
- Other Key Dates: 6/3, 6/10, 6/13, 6/20
After a spring filled with delays, glitches, and canceled travel plans, things get less hectic as Mercury stations direct on the 3rd. It's time to return to goals and vision that you abandoned in late April. Though you’re back in your element and calendar-ing up a storm, you’re also feeling pulled in many directions as both family and work obligations pick up. This leaves you little room for relaxation or self-care. The new moon in Cancer on the 28th is a perfect moment to seek advice from friends, and to lean harder into the support they have to offer. Why burn yourself out when so many people who love you are willing to help?
Love Horoscope: Whether you’re single or partnered, you’ve been having trouble getting together with the most important people in your life. But as Mercury connects with Jupiter on the 20th (for the third and final time this spring), you’re finally in the right mindset—and also in the same place at the same time—to have a heart to heart that takes your relationship to the next level.
Money Horoscope: Money planet Venus glides into your career and public image sector on the 22nd marking an ideal time for you to ask for a raise or promotion, launch your side hustle or renegotiate the terms of a loan with the powers that be. Take control of your own abundance.
- Full Moon (6/14): A great night for a party in your neighborhood with close friends
- New Moon (6/28): Set intentions for career and public image
- Other Key Dates: 6/11, 6/16, 6/18, 6/21, 6/22, 6/28
Whether you’re settling into a new job, relationship or parenting responsibilities, your task this month is to settle into a routine. What’s most challenging about this isn’t the commitment, it’s having to give up some of your vices—i.e. you can’t keep fantasizing about your ex if you want your current relationship to thrive. Set up a reward system for yourself that encourages building good habits. Then on the 28th, the new moon in Cancer brings exciting news for your career or public image, especially if you’ve been working on a project in partnership or on a team. Celebrate by grabbing a glass of wine and planning your next vacation or adventure.
Love Horoscope: Relationships have been your focus for the last few months which has kept you in crush mode aka your element. As mentioned though, this month is less about the chase, and more about stabilizing what you’re building together. If you’re still on the hunt for love, you might meet someone special in class or on a trip after Venus glides into Gemini on the 22nd. Flirt with your knowledge!
Money Horoscope: With your ruling planet Venus spending most of the month in Taurus and your shared resources sector, this is a great time to sort out lingering debts, apply for loans or refinance monthly expenses. Though you might run into a few roadblocks or unexpected costs along the way, there will also be alternative solutions as people are more willing than usual to cut you a deal.
- Full Moon (6/14): Mind your spending
- New Moon (6/28): Set intentions for travel and education
- Other Key Dates: 6/27
June allows for recovery and recalibration as you acclimate to yet another new normal—something your fixed self is not always keen to do. To find some much needed stability, you’re going hard at your fitness classes, cooking more often, and leaning into a morning routine. It’s also important for you to focus on streamlining both your finances and your energy this month. How much time do you really need to spend with that draining group of friends? Also, why are you paying for so many streaming services when you only watch reruns of Gilmore Girls? Shedding a few of these costs and obligations now will make your life easier later this year when Mars goes retrograde in your shared resources sector in October. This upcoming transit serves as an audit for your financial and emotional health so get ahead of it now.
Love Horoscope: Love planet Venus spends most of the month in your partnership sector so if you’ve been searching for a new lover, business partner or BFF, you have plenty of opportunities to make connections. This is especially true on the 11th when Venus meets up with innovative Uranus bringing someone delightfully unexpected into your world.
Money Horoscope: The full moon in Sagittarius on the 14th falls in your money sector and finds you tempted to make a major purchase. Though it might seem like this shiny new thing is going to change your life for the better, this desire may end up being a flight of fancy. If you still want that blender or the Peloton next month then so be it. For now though, wait it out.
- Full Moon (6/14): Celebrate yourself, your image and your identity
- New Moon (6/28): Set intentions for shared resources
- Other Key Dates: 6/13, 6/28
June is for getting back to life’s simple pleasures and doing only the things that you want to do. The vibes are indulgent—get into it! Mercury retrograde has put you back in touch with an intriguing former lover, business partner or friend. As the communication planet stations direct on the 3rd though, it’s time to decide if this person is meant to be a fixture in your present life, or if it’s better for everyone if they remain in the past. With the full moon in Sagittarius on the 14th making you especially loud and vibrant, it’s easy to see who encourages you to take up space versus who only makes sense when you’re in the dark. Partner with those who want to see you shine.
Love Horoscope: Love and romance are your absolute top priority this month. You can sense that the lovers coming into your life right now are more than just flings, and are meant to be real commitments. As Mercury re-enters your partnership sector on the 13th and connects with buoyant Jupiter on the 20th, you’re inspired to initiate the “what are we?” conversation and maybe put a ring on it.
Money Horoscope: Cancer season begins on the 21st and, for you, this time of year is all about shared resources. How can you reduce your debt and share what you have more generously? The new moon in Cancer on the 28th is an ideal time to refinance, apply for loans or make a major purchase with a partner.
- Full Moon (6/14): Put on “do not disturb” and take some time away
- New Moon (6/28): A fresh start for important relationships
- Other Key Dates: 6/4, 6/16, 6/27
Though it’s hard to step away from a group chat, friendship or industry that you’ve outgrown, knowing where you don’t belong gives you the freedom to do more of what you love. June is all about pleasure, romance and play. When was the last time you went to a baseball game? Or lounged by the pool all day with a good book? Or worked on a crochet project with no expectations or perfectionism? There’s so much freedom in not caring what anyone else thinks. You’re also given some financial relief this month which allows for some much needed retail therapy. By the new moon in Cancer on the 28th, you’re also excited to form closer bonds with your ride-or-die friends and lovers. Keep the real ones close!
Love Horoscope: If you’re single, the new moon in Cancer on the 28th is an auspicious moment to put yourself out there in search of new love. Though the apps are still the worst, you have luck finding a special someone through family or a close friend. Let everyone know you’re looking and see who shows up.
Money Horoscope: Your ruling planet Saturn stations retrograde in your money sector on the 4th, easing some of the financial stress that you’ve felt since late last year. As you take a moment to update your budgets, you might realize that you’ve actually had a much more lucrative year than you previously thought.
- Full Moon (6/14): Put yourself out there to make new friends and form community
- New Moon (6/28): Refresh your fitness, health and workflow
- Other Key Dates: 6/4, 6/16, 6/27
Last month’s eclipse season was stressful not only because of major shifts in both your career and home life, but also because you were stuck handling so many of these problems without support. People you thought you could rely on were constantly letting you down. June is all about releasing that pressure and maybe even…having some fun? Do you even remember how to do that? The full moon in Sagittarius on the 14th is an especially ideal night for getting carried away. Once Cancer season begins on the 21st, you shift your focus to getting back into fitness and other healthy routines. The new moon on the 28th is perfect for renewing your gym membership, trying out sobriety or experimenting with healthy recipes at home.
Love Horoscope: Things take a turn for the super flirtatious when Venus enters Gemini and your pleasure sector on the 22nd. Your best connections right now are with long distance partners, and this transit lets you flex your love letter and sexting game for the next few weeks.
Money Horoscope: If you’re self-employed or on a job hunt, it’s time to delegate more, or to streamline tasks so you’re doing the right amount of work for what you’re getting paid. The new moon in Cancer on the 28th is a particularly great time for refreshing your workflow. You may also want to pick up extra shifts or launch a side hustle. Remember to work smarter, not harder.
- Full Moon (6/14): A breakthrough in your career or public image
- New Moon (6/28): Open your heart to new romance or creative endeavors
- Other Key Dates: 6/13, 6/20
Whether you’re searching for a new home, hosting family from out of town or just finally settling into the apartment you’ve lived in for years, the month begins with you getting back in touch with your roots and foundation. That being said, the full moon in Sagittarius on the 14th interrupts this hibernation period with an exciting career opportunity that you can’t refuse. Though all the details aren’t clear, this offer is leading you in a positive direction, and helping you realize that all the professional pruning you did in 2020 and 2021 was worth it. The overall goal this month is to find satisfaction in both your public and private life. What if you didn’t have to keep searching for something outside yourself and instead felt happiness with what you already have?
Love Horoscope: Cancer season (from the 21st) is always your most romantic time of year, and by the end of the month, you might have more than a few suitors vying for your affections. The new moon in Cancer on the 28th is a particularly auspicious day to have a first date with your summer fling.
Money Horoscope: With both Mars and Jupiter in your money sector all month, you have lots of extra cash coming in, but you’re also spending it as fast as it hits your bank account. With all the focus on home, you’re particularly tempted to spend on improving your space. Thankfully as Mars connects with Saturn on the 27th, you’re able to reign it in and start saving again.
