The pace picks up in June, and things get flirty. Mercury is officially out of retrograde, so communication and business endeavors are now moving full steam ahead. While new and full moons happen each month, June is the time where they'll make an impact. The new moons are about rebirth—making wishes, setting goals, and thinking about what you want to experience more of in your life. Full moons are metaphorical deaths—they're about letting go to make way for something new. The new moon this month will be on June 4 in Gemini, the gregarious sign, which means that everyone should focus on strengthening their communication skills. The full moon on June 20 (also the summer solstice) will be the second moon in the sign Sagittarius (the first on May 21, and the second this month on June 20). This new moon carries a weighted message of consequence: knowing when to act, when not to act, when to listen, when to surrender, and when to speak up. You're still learning, but hang in there—your communication skills are on the verge of dramatically improving.
The majority of the month will be quick-paced and sociable, with flirtatious tendencies. The end of the month will slow down a little, and you'll crave more low-key activities, more sensuality, and feel the need to retreat to get in tune with your inner dialogue. See what's in store for you this month and pick up your power product to help you make the most of it.
"Mind over matter" is your motto this month. Finding common ground with others becomes your focus, especially when it comes to love. June is about connecting with others on an intellectual level and refining your own communication skills. You love when things are immediate, but this month work on being more patient towards people around you and you'll find yourself becoming a better listener.
The second half of the month will be about reconnecting with your home and making it reflect your personality. You'll need a place you can retreat to when you need it. Your wallet may not be as full as it was last month, but your heart and mind will make up for it. Focus on making real connections with others instead of hopping from one social event to the next. Look out for extra special days on June 4 and 8, and hold off until June 27 to 29 for big purchases.

You're basically a money magnet this month. In May, you focused on looking and feeling better; June is about using your resources, putting yourself out there, and reaping the rewards. You’ll be focused on making more money during the first half of the month, and great news: it will come easily to you. The second half will be about shameless self-promotion. Take advantage of your magnetic power to push your career forward. If you're dreaming of a big promotion, this month would be a great time to ask, but wait until after June 12.

Happy birthday! This is your month, Gemini. You've focused so much on your career and on others for the first half of the year that it’s time to make this month all about you. Be confident that you've done all that you can to push your career forward, and focus on your inner life for a little while. Take care of yourself, reconnect with the people you miss, and think about all the ways in which you can become more lucrative. June 5 and 12 will be extra sweet—tap into your best assets, mental prowess, and wit to win others over. You're magnetic this month, and others will want to know what you know. Sharing is caring.

You're in a spiritual upswing. This is not the time to focus on the extraneous—instead, try developing a richer inner life and enhancing the connection to your higher self. Astrology is all about timing: If you focus on what's in front of you, you'll feel that things are flowing without much resistance.
The sun will be in your sign on June 21, along with Venus on June 18, so until then, meditate, go on a retreat, and nurture yourself. You’ll then step into the limelight glowing from the inside out. Pay attention to your dreams this month; they hold the answers to your wishes.

It's important to remember that you are where you need to be. Life sometimes throws us a curveball, and if we keep pushing forward, we are likely to encounter some backlash. So your motto for June is “easy does it.” Think strategically, but go easy on yourself. You've done quite a bit for your career; now the focus should be more on thinking outside of the box. Spend the first couple of weeks connecting with people you haven't seen in awhile, and then shift your focus elsewhere. After June 18, don't push for anything. Instead, let things fall as they may. The more you release, the more will return to you.

Focus on your career this month, Virgo. If you're not where you want to be yet, being seen and standing out will be important in June. You’re used to being overqualified in everything that you do, but this month will require you to make some decisions, put yourself out there, and take risks—June 10 to June 18 will be the best week for that. Remember to focus on your health after June 21, because this will be a busy month for you. Take especially good care of your nervous system: Hold back on that second coffee, and make sure that you're getting adequate rest. There isn't anything to worry about—just enjoy this career boost, and take care of yourself.

You're in an intellectual upswing, all the while remaining integral and witty in June. You're craving more cerebral stimulation, and you'll get it. It may be a trip that you're in need of, in which case take one. If you’ve been thinking of taking an online course to get your fix, do it—it will give you an added dose of confidence! Just remember to feed your mind this month, especially on June 4. June 23 and 29 are ideal for staying in and catching up on some R&R. June 18 will be your luckiest day, so plan something special and put the career plan you’ve been scheming into motion.

While you’re always in search of a deeper meaning, Scorpio, this month is about embracing your love of intellectual eroticism, or at the very least, exploring your connection to things beyond this realm, mainly the cycle of life. You may have felt that you're supporting everyone around you, but after June 21, things will shift and give you more clarity. For now, focus on connecting more deeply with your sensual self, allowing the pieces of you that you no longer identify with to melt away. The new moon on June 5 is ideal for setting some goals—make them all about you. Focus on where you're going, not where you've been.

This month is all about relationships for you, Sagittarius. As a reminder, things are starting to ease up, but you'll need to embrace all your flaws and love yourself even more if you want to build strong and healthy relationships. Be patient—the right person will be there to support you. If you're already in a committed relationship, things will feel lighter and more loving. Just remember that "everyone is a reflection of you." The new moon on June 5 will give you an opportunity to improve your relationships—be flexible and stay positive. The full moon on June 20 is about recharging, so lay low as much as you can until July—you’ll need the extra energy.

Focus on embracing your more sensitive side, Capricorn. In order to do this, you'll need to open up a little and get comfortable with feeling vulnerable. The new moon on June 5 is an ideal time to start working out or kick-start a new health regimen. This will help you feel more confident, especially since your head hasn't quite been in the dating game. If you're in a relationship, chances are you've been more focused on other things. After June 18, you'll be more ready and willing to focus on your relationships, and not just romantically, but business-wise, too—so do the legwork, and focus on yourself first.

Last month, when Mars went into retrograde, you had a moment of contemplation related to most aspects of your life, from love to business relationships. The reason for this pause was so that you could recalibrate and move in a slightly different direction. Love is still on the forefront, but hold off until June 18 when you have support from Venus, gifting you with more charm and grace. The first half of June will feel like you're finally fitting all the pieces together. Stay in and play a game of chess—you'll feel like it.
Your June power product: A chess board. It's symbolic of your life this month.
Just like last month, the first half of June is all about balancing your work and home life. If you didn't feel totally run down from the stress last month, that means you have been taking care of yourself. However, if you did feel overwhelmed, then know that you needed to purge whatever was lingering. Things will ease up after June 18, but on June 5, you'll want to make sure to clean things up at home and make your space is more tranquil. On June 21, things will get a lot busier and a lot more fun. Hold off until June 26 to July 3 to make big investments; you'll have extra intuition around those dates.
