June is for worldbuilding. Not a fantasy realm, but your ideal and attainable reality. 2023 may have started off slow in January and February, but we began a new chapter in March, faced sudden changes in April, and made some dynamic choices in May. Now we’re here! June is when we finally get to chart where we are on the map. We begin the month still in curious Gemini season, examining the details and asking questions about our options. The full moon in Sagittarius on the 3rd makes the path toward our next adventure practical and clear.
Desire bonfires blaze on the 5th when Venus joins action planet Mars in passionate Leo. Due to an upcoming retrograde, Venus remains in Leo through October 8th giving us an extended period to glam up and get what we want. Mercury enters inquisitive Gemini on the 11th increasing our powers of articulation.
Meanwhile, Pluto reverses into Capricorn on the 11th, pausing the glimpse into the future that we’ve been privy to since the power planet went into Aquarius on March 23rd. Saturn stations retrograde in Pisces on the 17th kicking off cosmic summer vacation. So much has changed this year and with this shift, it’s time to review and reflect on what’s transpired. The new moon in Gemini on the 18th is for setting intentions via journaling, curating a summer reading list and gossiping with friends.
The lush, sentimental landscapes of Cancer season touch down on the 21st. Happy solar return to our nurturing, creative and nostalgic babes like Ariana Grande, Mindy Kaling and Lana Del Rey. Some think Cancers are simply “mother types,” but the word for them is really: matriarch. Communication planet Mercury—now moving very quickly in the sky—joins the sun in Cancer on the 26th giving us words to match our creative ideas.
