This is a month, Sagittarius, of partnership considerations coming to the fore. This relationship focus is indicated by the May 30th Gemini New Moon in your opposite sign, which colours the June month. As you reach for a fresh start in relationship matters, you are also questioning many factors of this area of your life, as indicated by the ongoing retrograde of Mercury which began last month in the same sign of Gemini. Your creative self-expression is active this month as well and partakes of inner realities along with outer. Mercury finally straightens out, escaping its retrograde shadow, by June 18th. The Full Moon of June 14th in your sign once more emphasizes concerns of self and others and additionally highlights the way that the feedback of key partners contributes to your own deep-seated personal evolution. You are this entire month exploring interior realms, with particular attention being paid to inner wounding in the days surrounding this Full Moon. You win by making friends with the hurt places within you, allowing them a seat at the table. The integration of outer and inner is your ultimate goal.

The month of June takes off following a New Moon in Gemini, which characterizes the next thirty days, and brings a fresh cycle in the part of your chart that relates to your partnerships. If you’ve been feeling unsupported, you may recently have had the opportunity to reassess why that might be the case. Mercury has been retrograding in both Taurus and Gemini for the last three weeks linking the part of your chart that relates to your routine with the part of your chart that relates to other people in your life. In general, you may like to do things by yourself because you know that no one else can do it as well as you. Your high standards also mean that it is hard for you to ask for help, and you might often prefer to take on the burden instead of delegating what you can do better. This also means that you could end up with much less time to focus on what you love, and you may be spending a lot of your energy on troubleshooting or doing things that could get done by someone else. All you have to do is ask for help, and you may be coming to grasp that concept authentically as June arrives.
Mercury turns direct in Taurus on the 3rd just as Saturn in Aquarius stations retrograde, emphasizing logistical and scheduling issues that may need to address. This could be a hectic time of the year for you, and the secret to having more time may lie in your ability to offload tasks to someone else.
Mercury in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn on the 10th, which is an aspect that has already occurred twice since April. Mercury and Pluto link your chart’s two sectors that relate to your daily routine and your resources. If you’re looking to make more money, it may be a question of logistics, and this could become clearer by the second weekend of the month. Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus on the 11th could highlight all the volatile factors you must contend with that may be out of your control. Even when you have a game plan, there seems to be a curveball that forces you to improvise on the spot, but the accumulated tension could feel stressful.
The Full Moon culminates in your sign on the 14th, shining a light on your overall well-being and how you take care of yourself. Jupiter is now transiting in Aries, which brings a supportive influence in the part of your chart that relates to pleasure, and you may be aware of your need for a vacation to spend more time doing what you love. This could come down again to delegating or reassessing how much time you spend working versus how much time you spend having fun. Your time and energy should be your priority, and it’s a good idea to heed your body’s signals to take a breather if you’ve been feeling overworked.
Mid-month also, the Sun in Gemini comes into a supportive aspect with Saturn in Aquarius, which may be your opportunity to ask for help or assess who is willing to support you. You may have some unfinished projects at home that require attention, and getting someone there to help you finish them could make a big difference. If you have too many projects on the go, it will become apparent, and you might need to focus on simplifying what has become overly complicated in the weeks ahead.
Your partnerships continue to be an essential focus point throughout June, perhaps calling you to reassess your commitments. On the one hand, you may have to fulfil your end of a bargain, but on the other hand, you might be itching to branch out and do your own thing. Your desire to go out and have fun is not entirely incompatible with your pre-existing partnerships, but you may have to express more openly what you need at this time. You may have a lot more affection to give, and you may be expecting the same in return. Either way, this time can bring significant progress in your relationships as long as you stay honest about your need for autonomy.
The Sun enters the sensitive waters of Cancer on June 21st, which signals the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun in Cancer continues to shine a light on business and intimate partnerships in the month ahead, and so does Venus entering Gemini on the 22nd, highlighting contracts and agreements. It may be your opportunity to adjust your stance as communication with others should feel fluid and productive.
The end of June may bring a few challenges which could mainly relate to your pre-existing commitments. The New Moon in Cancer on the 28th signals that you could have a lot of energy for a relationship, although the Sun and Moon squaring Jupiter in Aries speaks of having to keep a sense of perspective when it comes to the potential of something either romantic, creative, or business-related.
You can work the energy by staying pragmatic about what you or someone else offers while still making space for pleasure and adventure to infuse your connections.
