Welcome to June, Gemini! Last month, Mercury went retrograde. While everyone feels the effects of Mercury retrograde, it’s your ruling planet, so you tend to feel it more than others, so take the extra time to double-check emails. On Wednesday, June 2, Venus, the planet of love, money, and abundance enters sweet Cancer and your 2nd House of Possessions. While this planet is usually associated with romance, it also rules abundance, which means money. Because Cancer is all about the home, this transit indicates you may receive a raise, a nice tax return, or other financial help that may make your living situation more comfortable.
Thursday, June 10, is going to be a big day for you, charming Gemini. But big doesn’t mean party time; in fact, you will benefit from laying low. On this day, there is a new moon and solar eclipse in your sign. Eclipses are a little bit like you; they love drama! Known as the wildcards of the zodiac, they tend to put everyone on edge. You like to stir the pot on a regular day, so do everyone a favor and get a massage or find another way to chill out during this time. You can be the life of the party again once the eclipse is over.
The next day, on Friday, June 11, fighter planet Mars enters confident Leo and your 3rd House of Communication. You are one of the chattiest signs of the zodiac, but sometimes you are better at small talk than expressing your true emotions. This can limit your relationships. Yes, it can be safer to keep people at arm’s length with your charm, but a year of social distancing taught all of us the importance of intimacy. After all, absence can make the heart grow fonder. Now, get real with friends and lovers about how much they mean to you. You need strong connections during this strange time we live in.
Circle Sunday, June 20 in your calendar, because it’s another important day. Sweet Cancer season begins, which is all about summertime sadness. However, you won’t feel melancholy for long. This same date is also the Summer Solstice, an important witchy holiday that asks you to let go of the past to make room for the future. Additionally, Sunday, June 20, marks the start of Jupiter retrograde in Pisces and your 10th House of Social Status. Jupiter is a very lucky planet, but when it’s retrograde, you must roll your sleeves up and prepare to work hard. Use this time to buckle down and complete professional projects. If you give in to your ambitious nature, when the retrograde ends on Sunday, October 17 in Aquarius and your 9th House of Philosophy, you may find yourself working with people you admire. Don’t take anything for granted as dreams become reality.
Mercury retrograde ends on Tuesday, June 22, helping communication flow easier. The past few months have been about your career, Gemini. You’ve learned that overnight success doesn’t actually happen overnight, even when it appears that way. During the full moon in hardworking Capricorn on Thursday, July 24, you may see a professional culmination or success you’ve been lusting after. This may mean a book deal, a new job, a raise, or finding the courage to go back to school. Trust your instincts and don’t give up on yourself.
