Happy June and welcome to Gemini season, Stargazers! We’re changing plans, going with the flow, and treating our problems like a fun breakout room puzzle that needs to be solved.
Warm, clear summer nights are here — the perfect occasion to ponder the stars, life, the meaning of the universe. Unless that sort of thing makes you break out into a cold sweat, in which case just stick to enjoying the stars.
The month starts off with a blessed occasion, Mercury returns to direct motion in Taurus on June 3. Can you feel the balance returning to your weary soul? Good. The month continues on with the Summer Solstice on June 21, and a new moon in Cancer on June 28.

Your June horoscope
Happy Birthday, you Gorgeous Gems! This is your month to do absolutely zero people pleasing. You are under no obligation to make anyone other than yourself a priority this June (unless you are literally in charge of keeping pets or babies alive, be sure to make space for that). On June 3, Mercury goes direct and we can all lower our shoulders and take a beat to reflect.
This is especially important for you, a sign ruled by Mercury. If your home looks like it was hit by gale-force winds, take some time to make it habitable for yourself. If your personal life is in equally dire straits after that retrograde, make time to journal and rebuild any important bonds that might have gotten a little frayed at the edges.
The Summer Solstice on June 21 will bring warm summer nights and plenty of chances to do some star-gazing. There is a new moon in Cancer on June 28. A moonless sky is the perfect reflecting surface. If you look into it hard enough, you might be able to reveal what you really want for yourself in this next year of life. Be gentle with yourself, but more importantly — let loose! You earned your time to dance.

In better news, your ruler, the moon, will be full in Sagittarius on June 14. This is a pairing that encourages us to be playful and warm with those we love.
On June 28, there is a new moon in your sign. Take time to appreciate the blank canvas this presents. If it’s in your control and you want to change it, change it!
