If you find yourself at an impasse or three, know that it could take a few weeks to sort this out. Spoiler: You’ll have some help getting unstuck from July’s two galvanizing eclipses. So if a clear answer doesn’t emerge, trust us—it will next month!
Your first decision-making pathway could be opened by the June 3 Gemini new moon. Get ready to write a few “pros and cons” lists. But don’t get stuck in your head about it. On June 8, social Venus will move into Gemini, a great time to explore your options through inspiring lectures and exhibits (wine and passed hors d’oeuvres a plus), or over a lively dinner with friends. Ask for recommendations and soak up advice from those who’ve “been there, done that”—whether you’re looking for the best summer travel spots, contemplating leaving your job or feeling uncertain about a relationship.
The trick is to prevent your emotions from getting the best of you. Energizer Mars is in sensitive Cancer until July 1, one of its least comfortable zodiac signs to visit, because it’s in its disempowered “detriment” here. With brusque and impatient Mars pushing our most tender buttons, egos can get bruised and people will be quick to snap.
Careful not to stuff down your feelings or numb out with food, drink and other vices. And by all means, do NOT pull the “I’m fine” card when you’re not. Otherwise, expect a Mach Three Meltdown when you reach your saturation point! Make sure you have plenty of (daily) outlets to get stuff off your chest or it could manifest in your body. We’ve seen friends with hives, rashes and ear infections since Mars entered Cancer on May 15—as though their bodies could no longer contain what they tried to keep inside.
Midmonth, an outright traffic jam will occur overhead, which could whip people into a state of analysis paralysis. Good luck getting (or giving) straight answers! The more you try, the more questions you’ll end up with now. Riding out the storm will be the best move for most of us.
Mars will lock into dueling oppositions with rigid Saturn (June 14) and shadowy Pluto (June 19), both retrograde in goal-driven Capricorn. As these planets pit you between head and heart, you’ll need to balance “following your bliss” with your most pragmatic concerns. Think long-term but don’t ignore your intuition. Ask yourself: Will I still feel the same way about this in say, six months, as I do right now?
Neither of these planets is famous for boundaries, and this is only exacerbated by the fact that they’re both in change-loving mutable signs.
With Jupiter in grass-is-greener Sagittarius and Neptune in dreamy Pisces, every option looks better than the one before it. Hopefully, the June 17 Sagittarius full moon will help illuminate the correct pathway. But if it doesn’t, just allow yourself to soul-search and contemplate the full buffet of options before choosing. There’s a big opportunity to break past a MAJOR block if you let yourself view this from as many angles as possible.
On June 21, Cancer season begins as the Sun joins Mars in the Crab’s den. Home and family take top billing now. And with spiritual Neptune turning retrograde the same day (until November 27), it’s a great time to turn your den into a sanctuary. Add sacred and soothing touches to all your spaces.
During Neptune’s annual reversal, some of the fog that’s shrouding an area of your life can actually roll back. Use the next five months to identify where you’ve slipped into denial, resistance or avoidance.
