Welcome to Gemini season! Geminis get a bad rap for being flighty and two-faced. But the twins are also known for tapping into moments of joy. The best version of Gemini energy is an alert, engaged mind that is always ready to play and learn. Gemini knows how to dive into the present moment and have fun doing it. In June 2020, the sun in Gemini reminds us that no matter how heavy things get, it’s important to make room for laughter. In fact, our survival depends on it.
On June 21, the new moon in Cancer will also be a solar eclipse. Eclipse season brings big bursts of energy, and it can be quite chaotic. It can also be a powerful learning experience. This eclipse in particular will show us the difference between what we want to do and what we need to do. As we learn to balance our personal freedoms with our collective responsibility, we may need to look more closely at how and when we’ve neglected our neighbors. This won’t be easy work—but it’s well worth our collective effort.
Please note: These horoscopes, like emoji, are meant to add fun and color to your month. Take what feels good to you, leave what doesn’t.
This month, Venus is stationed retrograde in your sign forming a harmonious sextile to Chiron, the ruler of our wounds. You’ll have the opportunity to heal your relationship to love and/or resources. Whether it’s your bank account or your partner, someone in your life may need a little extra TLC. Maybe that someone is you. Look for ways to be gentle and patient. Ask yourself how you can offer soothing or be soothed. Open yourself to the possibility that there are more love and money to go around than you previously thought.
Communication is key this month. You’ll want to choose your words wisely. And that’s a tall order when you’re feeling everything so deeply. Remember that your feelings are for you. They are valid, and you don’t have to share them with everyone who crosses your path in order for them to be honored. You can keep a journal or confide in a trusted friend. You deserve to be heard, so don’t seek comfort from anyone who’s walking around with their hands over their ears.
It’s time for you to explore your sensitive side, Leo. The eclipse on the 21st will bring all your feelings to the surface. In order to get your needs met, you may need to practice asking for the love and tenderness you crave. You can be quite proud, but underneath your roaring demeanor, there’s a sensitive kitten who just wants to be cuddled. Just remember, purring means come close, and hissing means stay away. If you want to be held, don’t attack your loved ones. Just ask them for a hug!
This month, you are learning to be patient with yourself and others. You tend to be a taskmaster, and you’d probably love to tick a few items off your to-do list—but now you’re at a standstill. Trust that your forward momentum is coming, and use this time to do what you do best: edit, correct, and revise. If you can be patient in this pause, you may find that you’re getting a lot more done than you would by running full speed ahead.
You may feel reflective this month as you look back at your choices and wonder if you could have taken paths that would have caused you less pain. The truth is, no matter how long you weigh your options—and you really are a pro at weighing your options—you’ll never find a “perfect” choice. The choices you’ve made were the right choices for you at the time. As for pain, everybody hurts sometimes. If you can accept and own your past choices, you’ll feel more empowered to move forward and make healthy new ones.
This month, you’ll experience some forward momentum towards your goals. That may look different from usual given the current reality, but the circumstances will give you the opportunity to be pragmatic. You like to work behind the scenes, but this month, you should be upfront. Share your concrete plans with others, work with what you have, and you’ll make strides you didn’t think were possible.
Mars forms a harmonious sextile to Jupiter this month, which may have you itching to get up and go. Apart from Aries, there’s no sign that loathes quarantine more than you. If restrictions in your area are easing, you may find your heart fluttering at the possibility of an escape. But be cautious. Your dream of what the escape will look like most likely will not match the reality. Right now, you may get more mileage out of staying home and fantasizing about vacation than you would by hitting the road.
You’re feeling extra responsible these days, Capricorn. You want to be on top of your finances, your relationships, and your creative projects, and you’ve been doing the work to see results. You can expect to see lots of progress, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be roadblocks and delays. This month reminds you that there will always be elements that are beyond your control. The solar eclipse in Cancer on June 21 will highlight what is and isn’t working in your relationships. Take responsibility for your side of the street, and let go of the rest.
Your serious side will come out this month, Aquarius, and with good reason. What the world needs now is your firm commitment to taking care of the group. You are principled and willing to consider the needs of the collective before your own. But you may feel a bit world-weary. If you want to withdraw and restore your energy, please do. You won’t be of use to anyone if you’re fully burnt out. But don’t forget to reconnect with the world once you do. Lone wolves don’t change the world. Leaders do. And others can only look to you for guidance if you show up. Retreat. Reflect. And then return with a map of what you’d like to accomplish next.
You tend to go with the flow, but you may feel more aggressive and assertive than usual this month. You’re ready to take aim and hit your marks! On June 10, chatty Mercury forms a trine to your ruler Neptune, encouraging you to speak your mind. Meanwhile, warrior planet Mars is stationed in your sign. Don’t hesitate to say what you feel. This month, you’ve got the charm and finesse to get your ideas across with style. If you’ve been wanting to write or take up an artistic pursuit, this is a perfect time to let your creativity flow.
You’re ready for your close up. So why aren’t all eyes on you? At this moment, it’s about the good of the group. But you love to shine, so that can take a toll on you. Instead of wondering how you can be the best person on your team, ask yourself how you can help your team to be the best team it can be! When you do, you’ll shine like the superstar that you truly are.
Even superheroes need days off. You have been working so hard lately and you are starting to realize that it’s not sustainable. As the days warm up, find time for a hike, a walk, or a short escape from your grind. Even if it’s only in your mind. Meditate or turn on a funny podcast. Do something that’s about doing nothing. If you don’t, you will burn out. This month doesn’t just ask you to have fun; it demands it.
