Welcome to June, Taurus! Last month brought the beginning of Mercury retrograde, but thankfully, you’re a pro at handling those by now. Just double-check your emails, build in extra time for potential travel delays, and be skeptical of texts from exes. June begins with your ruling planet, romantic Venus, entering creative Cancer and your 3rd House of Communication on Wednesday, June 2. Most misunderstandings in love are due to simple miscommunication. Yes, Mercury may be retrograde, but this transit asks you to get real with your crush or partner. It’s time to stop dancing around the point and say exactly what you mean.
One of the most important dates of the month is Thursday, June 10. There is a new moon and solar eclipse in busy-body Gemini. Use this date to lean into your Taurus nature. Relax as much as you want, make a snack tray, and watch TV or read. Avoid any and all chaos, and if it feels right and you’re able to, turn off your phone for the evening.
The next day, on Friday, June 11, fighter planet Mars enters confident Leo and your 4th House of Home and Family. This transit encourages you to stand up for yourself. Perhaps you have a relationship with a family member that has started to feel toxic, or maybe your partner is dragging their feet about a major question you’ve asked for clarity about. Either way, no more gritting your teeth through it. You deserve respect and to get what you want, so get ready to set firm boundaries regarding matters of the home and heart.
Perhaps the most important day of the month is Sunday, June 20. To start, Cancer season begins, which means you may start to feel a bit more in touch with your emotions. It’s also the Summer Solstice, an important witchy day that marks new beginnings. The powerful fire of the sun burns away lingering residue from the past so you may start new adventures.
However, Sunday, June 20 is also when the lucky planet Jupiter goes retrograde in Pisces and your 11th House of Friendship. Jupiter is a generous and fortuitous planet that usually makes good things happen. But when this planet goes retrograde, arguments surrounding politics may take center stage. Because this transit begins in Pisces and your 11th House of Friendship, you may get into these sorts of disagreements with friends. While you shouldn’t throw a friendship out over a minor disagreement, you may find yourself wanting to make new friends whose visions better align with yours. Jupiter retrograde ends on Sunday, October 17 in Aquarius and your 10th House of Social Status. Trust that if your social circle looks differently by the end of Jupiter retrograde, it’s absolutely for the best. It’s OK to have our friends change as we grow.
