ARIES (March 21–April 19): With your ruler, Mars, hunkered down in your home zone, you might not feel like going out more than absolutely necessary. But define “necessary”! A social Gemini new moon on the 3rd could see you kicking up your heels till the wee hours. And the full moon next to global Jupiter in your travel sector on the 17th might send you down an airfare search-engine rabbit hole. Avoid confrontation on the 23rd and 24th, even if someone is gunning for a fight!
TAURUS (April 20–May 20): Your cosmic ruler, beautifying Venus, wraps up her annual visit to your sign on the 8th, so indulge in any “enhancements” or retail therapy before she moves on to activate your financial sector. For the rest of June, you’ll be focused on getting your budget back on track and watching your spending. Which isn’t to say you won’t be tempted by a few luxe pieces or epicurean meals. You’re not a Taurus for nothing!
GEMINI (May 21–June 20): When your ruling planet, mental Mercury, joins go-getter Mars in your financial sector on the 4th, your mind will be on your money: making more, saving better, and possibly finding some very fun ways to spend it. You’ll be fielding advice from all corners, which may just serve to confuse you. Trust your own gut here, Gemini. But don’t do anything rash when Mercury opposes first Saturn and then Pluto on the 16th and 19th.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): With energizing Mars in your sign all month, you should have plenty of vitality. The first week is ideal for a getaway, thanks to Venus in your community zone. Because your sign is ruled by the moon, you’re sensitive to its phases. A new moon in your introspective house on the 3rd could make you moody and wistful, but the full moon on the 17th could inspire a whole new fitness regimen. On your mark, get set, go!
LEO (July 23–August 22): Where’s the party? That might be your mantra for the first three weeks as your ruler, the radiant Sun, lights up the social and communal sector of your chart. Catching up with old friends, making new ones, meeting intriguing dating prospects (if you’re single): It’s all on your June agenda. An ideal day (and night!) for romance is the 17th, when a full moon in your zone d’amour throws another log on your personal fire pit!
VIRGO (August 23-September 22): A work or community project gets some gas when a new moon on the 3rd lights up your public zone and garners the support and recognition this thing deserves. On the 8th, creative, collaborative Venus enters that same area, making the “work” feel more like play. Some new friends could be lurking among your coworkers. There’s a lot of activity in all areas of life; the only challenge will be getting the quiet downtime you’re craving!
LIBRA (September 23–October 22): When you’re not working 24/7, you’ll be itching to get away—bonus points if you’ve got an amorous plus-one to use your companion ticket. A new moon in your travel zone on the 3rd revs your engines for two weeks and gets a turbo-charge from Venus (your ruler), who rolls in on the 8th for the rest of June. Don’t play the “too much to do” card, Libra. Bang it out asap, and when all else fails, delegate!
SCORPIO (October 23–November 21): Romance is percolating all month thanks to amorous Venus in your partnership realm. A new moon on the 3rd could bring an intriguing new prospect if you’re single (or spice things up if you’re not). Your two ruling planets (Mars and Pluto) form a rare but combative opposition on the 19th: Watch out for people trying to suck you into their dramas and conflicts. When you feel provoked, take the high road (or the nearest exit)!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21): Spoiler alert: You might find yourself negotiating the best way to balance your needs with a partner’s this month, and you will probably have to compromise some key points. But try to reframe it not as “losing” but as winning—in love or business! A new moon in your dynamic-duos realm on the 3rd could give them the upper hand, but the year’s only full moon in your sign on the 17th levels the playing field.
CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19): With your ruler, organized Saturn, retrograde till September, everything might feel like it’s “hurry up and wait.” And while certain things aren’t moving ahead the way you’d hoped, use this time to review and redo anything that isn’t up to snuff. With the year’s only Gemini new moon activating your health sector on the 3rd, it’s a perfect time to start or intensify your workout routines and green up your diet.
AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18): Come out of your cocoon, Aquarius! Comfort-loving and sensual Venus has been holed up in your domesticity center for the past month, but on June 8th, she blasts into your house of creativity, romance and risk-taking! Where are you waiting for the universe to give you a gentle nudge—or major shove—to take action? Meet it halfway by taking a baby step to test the water. Chances are you’re going to be glad you did!
PISCES (February 18–March 20): For once, you’re putting yourself first, so congrats on that! But don’t get cold feet or kowtow to a pushy manipulator just to keep the peace. On the 16th, your two rulers, Jupiter and Neptune, lock into a rare tangled angle, and how you react that day will set the tone for future interactions with this person. You don’t have to fight fire with fire; just stand your ground and honor your values!
