Your Weekly Horoscopes: June 18 to 24, 2023

Still from the Mindy Project with Mindy Kaling and a puppet.

Happy new moon in Gemini! Because it goes exact as the sun squares off with hazy Neptune on the 18th, this new moon is all about embracing the dreamiest of possibilities. Take it slow and don’t rush into anything. As the moon begins waxing, it goes void-of-course (basically on Do Not Disturb mode) for 2.5 days giving us lots of space to float and dream. Let your mind wander!

Things pick up rapidly on the 21st when the sun enters Cancer, and we celebrate the Summer Solstice! Cancer gets written off as the “mom” type, but this is a cardinal sign, meaning this season is meant for taking initiative even as we work through big emotions. (Think: the relentless work ethic of Mindy Kaling). Mercury connects with Mars on the same day bringing quick decisions and enthusiastic support. This is a great day to sit down with a journal and write out those new moon intentions!

There’s also an important collective transit this week as Jupiter sextiles Saturn retrograde on the 19th. Back on December 21, 2020, Jupiter and Saturn met in Aquarius for the Great Conjunction—a once-in-20-year alignment of the two social planets that resets cultural cycles. This week is the first time these two have come into contact since then; it’s a checkpoint for each of our personal visions and projects that kicked off back at the end of 2020. With Saturn in big-picture Pisces and Jupiter in solid Taurus, what felt like a far-off idea back then is becoming a tangible reality.

The new moon in Gemini is for getting lost in a good book, going down a research rabbit hole, or finally catching up on all those French films on your Criterion queue.
