Happy June, charming Libra! At the end of May, you leaned into self-care to minimize stress. Keep this trend up. When planet Venus, the goddess of love, beauty, and abundance (which happens to be your ruling planet) enters emotional Cancer and your 1st House of Self on Wednesday, June 2, you’ll look at the ways in which you are neglected. When was the last time you took a bath in rose petals or let someone cook for you? This transit reminds you of the importance of receiving. Venus is such a hot goddess that she just expects everyone to pamper her, so stop working so hard and take a page from this planet’s book.
Thursday, June 10, brings a chaotic solar eclipse and new moon in Gemini and your 9th House of Philosophy. First things first: eclipses can be stressful and unpredictable. As a general rule, it’s a good idea to chill out during an eclipse. They can bring drama even without us provoking any, so keep your chaotic side at bay.
New moons mark new beginnings, and because this day also lights up the philosophical piece of your chart under the influence of undecisive Gemini, expect new information that has the power to change your perspective. You’re the sign of justice, Libra, as represented by the scales. You consider yourself a fair person and usually, you are. But in such politically charged times, everyone has to be open to change and expansion. You may read an article that reframes how you see part of the world or use this day to catch up on news from publications other than your usual go-to.
The next day, on Friday, June 11, Mars, the planet of fighting and fucking, enters proud Leo and your 11th House of Friendship. This transit will give you the strength to stand up to anyone or anything that’s been making you feel less than. Remember how powerful you are, and if you need a little extra help, look to those who love you for a boost of confidence.
The most powerful day of the month is Sunday, June 20. Sweet Cancer season begins, which is all about relaxing days at the beach, nostalgia, and listening to love songs while eating popsicles. It’s also the Summer Solstice, which marks the longest day of the year and is a fun witchy excuse to have a picnic or BBQ with your friends. Wear floral prints.
Sunday, June 20 also marks the start of Jupiter retrograde, which begins in dreamy Pisces and your 6th House of Health. Echoing themes from earlier in the month, this retrograde reminds you to put your own mask on first. Before you start spending your emotional labor on others, make sure your own needs are cared for. Jupiter is the planet of luck, and when it goes retrograde, we must acknowledge what really makes us feel lucky, and that starts with self-care. When the retrograde ends on Sunday, October 17, in Aquarius and your 5th House of Pleasure. That’s as good as it sounds. If you treat yourself right during Jupiter retrograde, it will pay off majorly later on.
