This is a key month for you, Gemini, this is your birthday time of the year, and it begins astrologically with the New Moon in your sign taking place on May 30th. This New Moon highlights inner work as well as your own sign, corresponding to the identified area of your chart. With your ruler, Mercury, still in retrograde, this signals a continued time of introspective questioning of who you really are, based on an extended period of looking to the inside. Although Mercury changes direction on June 3rd, it does not escape its retrograde shadow period until the 18th, so this first half of the month will be sensitized by this introspective search for fundamental meaning. Intuition plays a huge part in this, and the willing departure on your part from your more customary logical mentation. The Sagittarius Full Moon of June 14th represents a significant juncture, seeing worldview as underlying your work in the world. Relationships are then emphasized as a useful corollary to coming to a better understanding as well of your own self-concept. You are, after all, your most important product.

The month of June begins astrologically with a New Moon in your sign from the last days of the previous month, on May 30th, kicking off the month with a bang. This New Moon is
supported by optimistic Jupiter currently transiting in Aries, which offers the perfect soil to plant your intentions. You may have felt in the dark or lacking energy in the past few weeks, especially for things that relate to your ambitions, and you may have realized that you need to slow down and focus on what matters the most to you. This refinement process may have helped you pinpoint where you are wasting too much energy and what you need at this time to feel more grounded. You may feel a certain amount of pressure coming from your work or career obligations, and it may be helpful to remember why you do what you do in the first place. Honouring your need to slow down to regroup could help bring back a sense of joy and bewilderment, especially for your dreams. You may have the opportunity to look at your ambitions with renewed enthusiasm after a period of doubt, and you could also inspire others with your energy. Jupiter in Aries is transiting in the part of your chart that relates to your community and your aspirations. Your pioneering spirit could open new doors and bring new opportunities in the following months.
During the first week of June, Mercury turns direct in the sign of Taurus just as Saturn turns retrograde in Aquarius. These planetary stations could highlight the recent tensions between your goals and your need to regroup. Releasing perceived pressure or expectations could allow a new kind of freedom to emerge, which could be more productive in the long run. It might be more efficient to take your time with something that requires all of your attention than to try to ignore it.
Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus on the 11th could highlight inner tensions and the need to address how you manage stress. Again, if you are putting too much pressure on yourself or if something is bothering you, the second weekend of June could make that clear. You may have the opportunity to implement better habits, especially those related to social media or the information you consume. Mercury re-entering Gemini on the 13th is good news, and you should start to feel a sense of cohesion and flexibility returning as Mercury progresses through your sign.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius culminates in your relationship sector on the 14th, helping you see the people there for you and who support your dreams. Mid-June could bring reconciliation or confusion depending on where and what you decide to focus on. Mars conjoining Chiron in Aries in your social sector is a powerful aspect that could bring the need to assert your individuality within a group. If you’ve felt muted or unable to stand out in some ways, you may have to work through feelings of frustration at this time. On the other hand, if you’ve been actively working through your insecurities, this time could bring healing and integration for things that relate to your place in the world. This may be a good time to acknowledge friends and partners who contribute to your success directly and indirectly.
On the 18th and 19th, Venus in Taurus comes into a square with Saturn in Aquarius while also sextile Neptune in Pisces. The third weekend of the month could therefore bring feelings of isolation or confusion regarding your aims. You may be wrestling with the same issues that came up in May, which could relate to your goals and the amount of energy you have for them. You may simultaneously feel ambitious and tired. Respecting your rhythm with things might be the only way to deal with this short-lived aspect.
The Sun enters the fertile waters of Cancer on the 21st, which signals the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun in Cancer could gradually emphasize your inner and outer resources in the following month. It should get easier to get what you want, especially as Venus, the planet of desire, enters your sign a day later. Venus will be transiting in Gemini until July 17th promising ease, pleasure, and charm in the weeks to come.
The New Moon in Cancer in your resources sector on the 28th links up with Jupiter in Aries, highlighting your goals, career, and finances. This could signal the beginning of a more productive period for you when you can go after what you want with more gusto after an extended period of reflection and realignment.
