This is another interesting month for you, Cancer, a chance to have a look inside. The Gemini New Moon that began the June cycle took place in your sector of unconscious process and inner work. June is also the month of the Sun’s Cancer ingress – the Solstice – when the Sun enters your sign, signifying an increased concentration on your outer persona that meets the world. The progress of your personal evolution this month is therefore defined by this contrast of outer and inner concerns. Your changing ideas regarding your societal contribution reflect both types of development. The Quarter Moon lunation of June 7th marks one important juncture, when prospective plans reflect your changes and intuition predominates, while the Sagittarius Full Moon of June 14th represents another, when concepts of service to others may take centre stage. Your friendships and plans are still morphing, as your beliefs and values come more fully into focus. With the Cancer Solstice of June 21st, an Aries stellium indicates that career choices and professional concerns are emphasized. This latter timing reflects developmental shifts in your internal moral compass that have long been percolating within you.

The Gemini New Moon of May 30th astrologically defines the first 28 days of the June month occurring in the chart sector that relates to your unconscious patterns, signalling the beginning of a new phase pertaining to the most hidden parts of yourself. You could get tons of information now from your dreams, and it might be an excellent stretch of time for journaling. You might find that things you used to take for granted are not accurate anymore, which may trigger profound yet subtle changes within you. This month you may have the opportunity to finally let go of old programming while inviting new experiences into your life. Some things you thought you wanted might be obsolete now that your perspective is changing, and you may feel ready to let life surprise you with her blessings.
Mercury stations direct in Taurus at the beginning of June in the sector of your chart relating to your community and aspirations. There is a strong emphasis on the sign of Taurus these days, and for you, it may come in the form of connecting your dreams with a community of people who can support them. You may find that changing your internal dialogue also shifts your ability to show up in the world. There may be a connection between the parts of you who usually stay hidden and your desires to progress in your chosen direction. You may realize that you often can appear non-threatening and hide your game under an innocent smile that gets you ahead in the world. However, it could be more difficult than usual to hide your ambitious side from others and even yourself this month.
There could be a strong emphasis on your various roles at work, relationships, and in your community during the first week of June. However, Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus on the 11th is looking to break from the norm and experiment. There may be exciting opportunities to participate in activities with a group of people who differ from your usual crowd. You may be more inclined to get off the beaten path, and it’s an excellent time to explore your social ideals and communities that carry progressive agendas that align with your visions. You may be pleasantly surprised by what’s out there and what people do to make the world a better place.
Mercury re-enters Gemini on the 13th, where it was in late April before turning retrograde. Things that may have seemed overly complicated could start to make sense now that Mercury is moving direct again, and you may be able to make sense of things that seemed excessively complex just a few weeks ago.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius culminates on the 14th in your sector of health and routines, and this may also highlight logistical issues, especially if you’ve been spreading yourself too thin recently. It could feel harder to know what to prioritize, or you may have to decide on something without having all the information. The Full Moon squares Neptune could mean some confusing factors, and it may be wise to take a moment to regroup if you are feeling frazzled around the middle of the month. Mars joining Chiron in Aries at the top of your chart may offer a key to insecurity you may have been having related to your autonomy and personal choices outside of familial and social expectations. You may have the opportunity to shed old ideas about success to make space for your version of what it means to be successful.
The Sun enters your sign on the 21st, which signals the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun transiting in Cancer for the next month should help you clarify things that have become muddled, and you may find that you have more energy. It’s an excellent time to focus on your personal goals, direction, and what you want. You may find that things start flowing better, and it might feel easier to know what you want in the latter part of June.
Venus enters Gemini on the 22nd joining Mercury and also transiting in Gemini, which continues to emphasize some of the reflective or contemplative influences that may have permeated the last few months. You may feel the need to balance your social life with periods of tranquillity to hear yourself think better and reflect on your goals for the second half of the year.
The month closes with a New Moon in your sign on June 28th which officially signals the beginning of a fresh cycle for how you show up in the world, and for determining more fully what you want. There is a tremendous focus on career and professional life for you at this time as well. The seeds planted at this month’s end may relate to what you feel you need at this time to embody the most genuine version of yourself.
