Your Weekly Horoscopes: June 16 to 22, 2024

It's Cancer season, which means it's time to reflect

Cancer season begins on the 20th, right as we reach the bittersweet summer solstice. There’s never been more light, and yet, it only gets darker from here. Mercury (how we communicate) and Venus (how we love and connect) also leave chatty Gemini for compassionate Cancer on the 17th. Do you know why Cancer is such a nostalgic sign? It’s because they know everything is fleeting. It’s time to take a step back and admire what’s come together over the last few buzzy and exciting weeks before moving on to what’s next. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, I suggest journaling or listening to music to release the feels. 

All of this Cancer season deep sea diving is broken up by a practical full moon in Capricorn on the 21st. This lunation is a reality check: a not-so-subtle reminder that though some things are reaching their peak, others still have a long way to go before they’re in bloom. Long term visions need as much tending as short-term plans. This week is about finding the balance between what feels good right now and the tough stuff that will be rewarding in the long run.

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

You’ve been struggling to figure out what’s more important: the thing that’s right in front of you, or the big-picture plan. This week doesn’t make that tension any easier, but it does provide a different framing. Cancer season begins on the 20th and brings your focus to your home and family life. This is when you finally take that advice from your therapist (or let’s be real: that Instagram tarot reader) and make a gratitude list. It’s important to recognize the value of your foundations. Then on the 21st, the full moon in Capricorn reveals the next move for your career or overall life direction. What you initiate this week has a long term impact.

This week’s mantra: “Ground.”

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

If you haven’t gotten the memo already, the shift of your ruling planet Venus from chatty Gemini to heart-centered Cancer on the 17th makes it crystal clear who’s your real friend who’s just a person you know. Cancer season kicks off in full on the 20th ushering in the time of year when you’re most focused on your immediate environment and local community. Sometimes less really is more. The full moon on the 21st has you making a game plan for travel or study opportunities with a close friend or sibling.

This week’s mantra: “Circle.”

Cheeky illustration of identical twins with long dark hair and a statement earrings back-to-back, smirking at each other.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

The last few weeks have had you feeling both totally in your element and very overwhelmed. As Mercury, Venus and the sun all move into Cancer this week, you might be wondering about the value of all this. The full moon in Capricorn on the 21st may leave you feeling like you don’t have enough or there’s something missing. But once you get out of your head and into your body, you’ll realize you’re a lot more resourced than you think.

This week’s mantra: “Worth.”

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Time to get out of your head and back into your feelings. As your season begins on the 20th, the existential worries of the last few weeks begin to dissolve. Finally, you can focus on the reality of what’s actually in front of you! This shift helps you feel more optimistic about what’s still unknown. The full moon in Capricorn on the 21st illuminates the ways you may have neglected your closest relationships in this time of inner turmoil. As you leave your own difficult period, who needs your support?

This week’s mantra: “Positive.”

Cheeky illustration of a woman of Asian-descent wearing a sheer coral top with her hair half-up in pigtail puns, the rest down. She is hugging a lion, who is smirking.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Cancer season begins on the 20th ushering in a period of introspection and behind-the-scenes work. Now’s the time to surrender to a slower pace. The more you try to make things happen prematurely, the more frustrated you’re going to be. The full moon in Capricorn on the 21st reveals what obligations need your attention now and what can wait. If you’re struggling to prioritize, keep this koan in mind: “If you can do something about it, why worry? If you can’t do anything about it, why worry?” 

This week’s mantra: “Cocoon.”

Virgo (August 23 - September 23)

If you’ve been struggling to figure out the best place to put your energy, this week reveals a clear path to purpose. This isn’t just about your professional life but also about your closest relationships and community at large. If you work in writing or communication, this is a great week to put some of your more poetic ideas into the world and build your team and audience around that. The full moon on the 21st brings creative fuel and a reminder that success means nothing if you’re not having any fun.

This week’s mantra: “Inspire.”

Libra (September 23 - October 21)

Cancer season is the time of year that, for better or for worse, you get the most attention. There’s been a push to expand your vision and to, in service of that vision, cut down and clarify your everyday obligations. It’s been a challenge to focus your energy, but this week, you get some nourishing recognition for all of your hard work. Now that your career and overall life direction feel more purpose-filled, the full moon in Capricorn on the 21st brings your attention back to your home and family life. What steps do you need to take to ensure a more solid foundation?

This week’s mantra: “Shine.”

Scorpio (October 22 - November 21)

Cancer season is your vision board season! Identifying the places where you’ve been giving or indulging too much over the past few weeks opens the doorway for a new project, travel opportunity or education plan. Write some poetry in your manifestation journal and share it! The full moon in Capricorn on the 21st brings a reality check around the skills and connections you still need to cultivate. Doing a skill share with a friend, signing up for a community class or picking a friend’s brain all pave pathways to success.

This week’s mantra: “Vision.”

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

So far this month has been about making the right connections. Whether you’re starting a more aligned client practice, restructuring your business partnership or taking a romantic relationship to the next level, all of your focus has been on commitment. Cancer season kicks off a period focused on how you can continue to grow together via financial gains and open-hearted conversations. The full moon in Capricorn on the 21st though brings your attention back to your personal needs. Is your cup being filled? How can you build your confidence?

This week’s mantra: “Esteem.”

A cheeky image of a woman of color with dark hair holding a pink goat by the horns. The background is pink and her shirt is darker pink.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Finding more balance in your schedule and routines pays off this week as you get to enjoy more time with friends and lovers and less time at work. Cancer season is the time of year when you’re most focused on relationships and other people. If your connections are fulfilling then this feels like a celebration, but if you’re lacking strong relationships, this might feel more like compare and despair. The full moon in Capricorn on the 21st is a reminder that your most important relationship is the one with yourself.

This week’s mantra: “Love.”

Cheeky image of a Black woman with blue hair on a light blue background. She's holding blue water in her palms, which is bubbling up and taking shape as her hair.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

No matter what began for you at the new moon in Gemini on the 6th, you’re now exiting the fugue state of birth and getting into a routine. Cancer season begins on the 20th and is the time of year when you’re most focused on improving your health and routines. Take some time this week to set clear goals around fitness, nutrition and your work schedule. The full moon in Capricorn on the 21st is a reminder to take a step back and take a break. If taking a pause causes immediate anxiety, that’s also important to note.

This week’s mantra: “Evaluate.”

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

The last few weeks—literally or figuratively—uprooted you. You’re currently setting up a new home base, and as Cancer season begins on the 20th, your focus is shifting from practical needs (WiFi, bed frame, kitchen supplies) to creative nourishment (funky duvet covers, coffee table books, finding the best neighborhood bar). The full moon in Capricorn on the 21st is a reminder to take a more active role in your community, whether that’s through volunteering with a charity, joining an arts club or finally setting up that Zoom book club with your college besties.

This week’s mantra: “Mesh.”
