This is another important month for you, Leo, with plenty of featured outer planet archetypes in key sectors of your solar chart, indicating the change. Also, with Mercury Retrograde in your career sector as the month begins, you are looking more deeply into all aspects of your outer world presentation including the extent that this depends on private, internal principles. The Gemini New Moon that kicked off the current lunation cycle also emphasized friendships, group affiliations, and your societal contribution, so is a fitting combination with your career considerations. All through the month, you are investigating, and likely articulating, aspects of your internal moral code that represents a bottom-line value for what you are up to. It could be that you are seeking a more complete match between this and what you act upon in terms of your work in the world and your professional stance. The Sagittarius Full Moon of June 14th represents an important juncture when you will be considering the way that your creative self-expression contributes to the world and to the society that surrounds you, while also seeking greater partnership commitment as a significant component of your ongoing personal evolution.

June begins on a bold note with the Gemini New Moon from May 30th, lighting up your sector of societal contribution, friendships, and future plans for the next thirty days, and indicating a new cycle relating to your dreams and aspirations. This could be a somewhat loaded topic as the recent Mercury Retrograde may have brought the need to reassess where to invest your focus in bringing about the most successful outcome. Your collaborations could sometimes feel like a double-edged sword that can offer some opportunities at the cost of your autonomy. You may feel conflicted between your need for support and your desire to have the space you need to do whatever you want. You may not be able to branch out entirely independently so that you could continue to benefit from your collaborations this month.
Mercury turns direct in Taurus on the 3rd, which could bring significant traction for career-related matters, especially if you are willing to put in the efforts, while Saturn turning retrograde in Aquarius a day later might be your cue to reassess how much time and energy you are ready to invest on other people. The success you are looking for may lie in your ability to team up with others in a way that still respects your personal goals.
The second weekend of June could bring an unpredictable situation at home or in your career, and you might have to improvise. Mercury in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn can help you prioritize your needs and organize something more efficiently. However, Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus on the 11th could create enough restlessness to derail your success if you are not paying attention. You may feel more moody and introspective, but this is a short-lived aspect so try not to draw hard conclusions if you are not feeling great.
The Full Moon taking place in Sagittarius on the 14th brings your creative self-expression into prominence. The Full Moon illuminates your chart’s creative and romantic sector, making this time particularly fertile. Jupiter is now moving through Aries, which means that it may feel easier to get in touch with your passions and your sense of adventure at this time. You may be able to brush off any disappointment you may have experienced more recently to make space for new things to emerge. You may still feel confused about what you want, and it may be an excellent time to assess your overall framework concerning what you think is possible. Mars and Chiron conjoining in Aries in this Full Moon configuration, representing the vision sector of your chart, could symbolize reflections on internal wounding, and perhaps an opportunity to remove your blinders and to let yourself understand more about something of your inner workings. You may have a chance to let go of a stale framework, and although this could potentially feel strange or vulnerable, the results could be highly clarifying in the long run. Although this mid-June lunation feels progressive, you are still fully aware of your commitments thanks to Venus in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius. Your desire for stability could therefore be strong at this time, and you may feel like prioritizing predictable situations instead of taking a leap of faith. There is no need to pressure yourself into something that doesn’t feel secure if you are not feeling it.
The Sun enters the empathetic waters of Cancer on the 21st, which signals the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere. We are now exactly one month away from Leo season, and with the Sun in your twelfth solar house, you might spend this period reflecting and taking stock before he enters Leo in mid-July. Respecting the ebb and flows of your body and your emotions could feel somewhat challenging with so many planets transiting in Aries. You could feel compelled to move around and explore while also needing downtime to recharge your batteries.
The end of June comes with two very different influences thanks to the Cancer New Moon taking place on the 28th while the Sun and Moon are square Jupiter in Aries. This is a bright mixture of Fire and Water, and you might have to be more deliberate about your energy investments at this time to ensure a good balance between rest and play.
