Astrology June 2022 by Rachel Lang
A Word from Rachel
We made it through eclipse season and (almost through) Mercury retrograde, which ends on June 3. Here we are, in the calm after the storm. Venus, Mars, and Mercury will dance happily in their own signs this month, signaling a time when these personal planets are supporting us in expressing the true nature of ourselves in all areas of our lives. For some, this month brings us closer to realizing our sense of purpose and living a more mission-led life. For others, it means a welcome reprieve from hard work. It’s our astrological time-out period, and while things are moving forward fast (thanks to Mars and Jupiter in Aries), we can integrate it all more easily.
I see June as one of the more favorable months of 2022. The Sun shines in the air sign of Gemini until June 21, inspiring conversations, inquiry, and the pursuit of knowledge. Perhaps my Gemini Moon makes me slightly biased, but I love the way air sign energy brings people and ideas together. It’s a time to start our podcast, journal, or gather with friends. It tends to be a time when we want to learn or teach. We crave new experiences, which could lead to travel.
Saturn goes retrograde on June 4, and it asks us to reflect on the work we’ve done this year. Have we mastered the lessons we need to know? Have we stood by our commitments or allowed ourselves to change our minds if they didn’t align? Saturn in Aquarius shows us the groups and causes we’ve stood by, and we have to make choices about how we dedicate our time, energy, and resources. These choice points show us our limitations, but they also ask us to lean into our strengths.
Mercury enters Gemini on June 13, and we’re back on track with relationships and communication. The next day, the Sagittarius Full Moon inspires a faith-filled sense of possibility. We are dreaming bigger than we allowed ourselves to do before. This lunation features the Moon in a sextile aspect to Saturn and a square to Neptune, indicating that we want to take a risk and be bold, but we need to be mindful of potential pitfalls that could deter us from reaching our goals.
On June 15, Mars in Aries will meet up with Chiron, encouraging emotional intensity that leads to healing. Anger could surface, but it’s fuel to support you in charging forth with your grand ideas, spoken words, and inspired projects.
Venus moves through Taurus until June 22, and she aspects all the outer planets along the way. Venus conjuncts Uranus on June 11, conjuncts the North Node on June 16, squares Saturn and sextiles Neptune on June 18, and trines Pluto on June 21. Phew! That’s a lot of activity in our love lives. We explore all aspects of relationships – from our need for freedom to our desire to change how we communicate. We recommit to what we hold dear and transform ourselves through our relationships.
This month, there’s also an emphasis on finances as we look at our relationship with money amid inflation, market fluctuations, and changing interest rates. We’ll especially feel this influence on June 18.
On June 21, the Sun enters Cancer on the solstice. We feel the change of seasons, no matter the hemisphere we live in. We feel more entrepreneurial and creative with the Sun in Cancer. We feel heart-led in making decisions, especially those that influence most people we love.
On June 27, Mars sextiles Saturn and conjoins Eris, making this a day for radical conversations about change. Expect some heated discussions about social concerns, including political issues. No matter where you live or what beliefs you hold, your urge to stand up in defense of your position runs high. Gather with others who nurture your self-awareness to avoid dualistic thinking. You’re on a path to wisdom, which means reserving judgment and allowing truth to be multifaceted.
The Cancer New Moon on June 28 features a favorable sextile from Venus to Jupiter, enhancing our ability to come together in harmonious ways. It’s a lunation for tending to one another and being held in support.
Your Horoscope for June 2022
Turn up the air conditioning, Aries; the universe turns up its heat this month! Jupiter, the planet of joy, moves through your sign, spreading glitter over everything you do. Adding to that, we have Mars, your ruling planet, right at home in your sign. On a practical note, make sure you’re doing everything you can to stay cool and prevent fires, as Mars tends to bring the gas and the heat, which, if unchecked, can boil over. On a more esoteric note, fuel your heart’s desires with enthusiasm.
Mercury goes direct on June 3, and you can finally chuckle at last month’s comedy of errors. Challenges that seemed impossible are now in your rearview mirror. The Full Moon on June 14 features a favorable aspect with Saturn, helping you break ground on new projects or solidify an action plan to meet a goal.
Jupiter’s influence often results in the manifestation of dreams—sometimes, all at once. Think back to what was happening 12 years ago. Similar themes will be present right now.
It’s a great month for travel and social activities. On June 22, Venus enters Gemini, shining on your social life. Traveling to visit friends or loved ones could be a possibility, but so could meeting someone special.
On June 27, Mars forms a favorable aspect to Saturn, making this a time for more serious conversations in love. When the Sun enters Cancer on June 21, your thoughts turn to your home, which could mean solidifying a real estate deal or signing a lease on the spot you’ve been manifesting. The Cancer New Moon on June 28 brings a surprise and perhaps good news about a concerning situation. Thanks to Jupiter, the grass is looking greener in your yard.
Do you remember The Tortoise and the Hare, one of Aesop’s fables? The slow and steady turtle beats the trickster rabbit across the finish line. The moral? Perseverance can triumph over arrogance. Slow and steady wins the race. Let this be your mantra for the month.
Venus is shining in your sign until June 22, making it a time to enjoy a slower pace of life, even if you must shift a few priorities to do so. Last month’s eclipses and Mercury retrograde held us in a whirlwind of activity, and you need to rebalance your nervous system. What activities bring you the most peace? Allow yourself spaciousness to drink a soothing lemon balm tea, take a hot shower, and practice what brings you back to your center.
Venus forms an open trine with Pluto in Capricorn on June 21, making this a time to shine your light for others to see. Smile at strangers on your morning walk, strike up conversations, or express your true feelings with someone you love. Someone could tell you a secret or engage in a heart-to-heart talk. As the Sun enters Cancer, it kindles nostalgia, helping heal connections with family or friends.
The Full Moon on June 14 highlights finances. Don’t hesitate to reach out to others for advice or counsel. This lunation could help you see solutions if you’ve had financial setbacks. Hint: Maybe all you need is a mindset change. With finances and relationships both, keep Aesop’s fable in mind. Allow things to grow and evolve.
Your faith in other realms has expanded since Jupiter entered Aries. By the end of the month, you could reach a new level of spiritual understanding.
June will likely feel like the calm after a storm. Last month’s eclipses and Mercury retrograde sent everyone into a frenzy reconnecting with the past and setting new commitments for the future. Think of this month as a time to be truly present. It’s your birthday season, after all. It would be ideal for making this a vacation time or for putting away some time for a personal retreat. What brings you peace, Gemini? Amidst the rush of life and commitments, how can you gift yourself moments of nourishment and replenishment?
Mercury enters your sign on June 13 and ushers in a cycle of reorganization. You’re ready to declutter everything from your closets to your schedule to your rambling thoughts. With the Sun shining in your Sun until June 21, you’ll likely feel unstoppable in everything from how you pursue specific goals to how you prioritize self-care.
Venus enters your sign on June 22, and your magnetic charm makes you almost immune to criticism or negativity. Therefore, it’s a good time to prioritize tasks that require persuasive words and social engagement. This month supports activities that require a little extra courage. Have a difficult conversation, step up on stage, or submit a book proposal. Venus is asking you to step out of your comfort zone and act boldly. Make the most of this time by discerning what activities favor your grandest and wildest dreams.
The Sagittarius Full Moon on June 14. presents you with a relationship decision. Be willing to remove whatever obstacles block the flow of love in your life. Focus on the change you like to see in your relationships. You can love where you are and love what’s possible.
A common misconception about those born under the sign of Cancer is that in being a homebody, you resist change. This is far from true! Cancer is one of four cardinal signs that start the change of seasons, with Cancer starting summer in the Northern Hemisphere. Cardinal signs emphasize action, leadership, entrepreneurship, and risk-taking. Like other cardinal-sign people, you can stagnate in a period of stasis. Like the Moon, your sign’s ruling planet, you go through phases. This month, the astrological skies are clear, but this doesn’t mean you need to create turbulence for movement.
Enjoy this month by taking a vacation or spending time with friends. Gemini season is a social one. I would encourage you, though, to be selective about how you spend your time and with whom you share your energy, especially after Mercury enters Gemini on June 13. You might be more sensitive to criticism or negative vibrations during this transit.
Jupiter shines in Aries this month, expanding your vision for what’s possible in your career. It’s a time for creative visioning and connecting with those who cheer you on and celebrate your light. Mars in Aries is the motivational force you need to take courageous steps forward in your public projects and work life.
You recalibrate during the first part of the month as Mercury goes direct on June 3. The time right before your birthday tends to be full of self-reflection. Allow yourself to go slow and continue to take inventory of your life. I would say the keyword for your month is the heart. The Sun shines in your sign after June 21, and if your heart’s not in it, don’t do it. Find a different flow if you find yourself pushing against too much resistance.
One of the glorious things about being a Leo is your gift of presence. Your sign is ruled by the Sun, the brightest luminary in our sky, and you exude charisma. Whether you like it or not, people notice you when you walk into a room. Approximately 80% of the Leos with whom I work claim to shy away from such attention. Does that sound like you? If so, it’s time to face your fears of judgment or shamefulness. Jupiter, the planet of generosity, shines in fiery Aries, which could mean a new call to adventure or spiritual undertaking. Before you accept the invitation, own your brilliance! Be the light that guides others.
Your friendships and networks have shifted with Mercury retrograde. As Mercury stations direct on June 3, it offers clarity about any misunderstandings or mishaps you’ve had in your communities. If friends from your past came back into your life, you might have a deeper awareness of the significance of those relationships. On June 13, Mercury re-enters Gemini and invites you into a celebration. Your social life could be a joy as we move into the second half of the month. Leave some time on your calendar for some extra social engagements.
Mars motivates an urge to travel, both literally and spiritually, especially if you’ve been laying low these past two years. As it meets with Chiron on June 16, it calls you to broaden your horizons. In doing so, you see beyond limitations into the realm of possibility. You can shape your perception, Leo, and the Full Moon on June 14 shows you how.
Venus shines in stable Taurus until June 22, helping you attract professional opportunities with effortless grace. You’re feeling mission-driven and ready for change. On June 16, Venus joins the North Node destiny point, and you’re willing to let go of anything out of resonance with your core self and make space for your career’s destiny to unfold. It’s hard to ignore once you know what truth feels like in your body. After June 21, the Cancer Sun shines in a way that allows you to tell the truth in spaces where you didn’t feel safe before. Bring others together in a community to share, and see what magic ensues.
Mercury retrograde cycles are like periods of profound realizations and atonement, and we start the month right before the messenger goes direct on June 3. We’ve been digging deep into our psyches, exploring the shadow aspects of ourselves. We shifted unhealthy communication patterns and deepened our self-understanding. Mythological Mercury crosses in and out of the underworld as a messenger. Astrological Mercury helps us do the same with the underworld aspects of life on earth, the sticky and the mucky. But we have to remember that Mercury retrograde is an optical illusion. What a metaphor! How many of our ghosts and goblins are illusions, too? Keep this in mind as you reflect on the weeks leading up to June 3.
The Gemini Sun inspires momentum and drive. You can focus much of this energy on passion projects you’ve had on the backburner. It could be time to gather a team of supportive thought partners and friends for brainstorming and research. Mercury moves back into Gemini on June 13, making the end of the month a perfect time to form collaborations. The Sagittarius Full Moon on the 14th fuels ambition. Take note of visions and inspiring conversations born around this lunation. By the time the Sun enters Cancer on June 21 at the solstice, you could start to see the manifestation of your brilliance. Don’t be scared of shining bright, dearest Virgo.
Saturn stations retrograde on June 4, and you may need to draw from your reserves of self-discipline for follow-through, especially regarding your health and everyday working situations. Jupiter in Aries fires up your awareness about the mind-body connection, which will help you grow beyond pain into a fuller sense of purpose.
Relationships take a more serious turn after the 21st as the Sun enters security-minded Cancer on the solstice. You might find yourself reflecting on past love, conjuring mixed emotions, especially after June 28, when Neptune stations retrograde in your seventh house of partnership. Imagine composting your regrets and disappointments and watching them decompose into the energy needed to attract more love into your life.
What comes to mind when you think of the warrior archetype? As a Libra, a sign known for its need for balance and harmony, I’ve worked closely with diplomats, mediators, and peace activists. I’ve seen the warrior inside of every peacemaker— unshakable in their resolve for justice. Mythologically, Mars, the god of war, was also the guardian of agriculture. He protected valuable resources, ironically, to keep the peace. This month, Mars moves through Aries, fueling your urge to protect what you most hold dear. With such a heavy-hitter in your opposite sign, you may feel more defensive or easily triggered. When Mars is active, we feel full of restless energy – we want to MOVE! I encourage you to do the same.
On June 11, Venus conjoins Uranus, making freedom one of the keywords of your month. After all, as a Libra, you are consistently learning lessons about integrating autonomy and interdependence.
You could have some tests of faith this month. The Full Moon on June 14 invites you to change your mind, which could result in an overall life change. I know it’s a Libra stereotype to ruminate over decisions, but I give you full permission to revisit a past decision and see if you can create a different outcome.
The Sun enters Cancer on June 21, shining a spotlight on career decisions. If you have wanted to make a career change or have been in negotiations for a new opportunity, expect to receive more information with the Solstice on June 21, which ushers in the start of a new season of life. After last month’s eclipses, you are finishing past business and manifesting intentions. As Mercury retrograde ends on June 3, you’re ready to shoot forward again in all ways.
How much free will do we have? When you navigate swift changes, you might ponder this question. The truth is: Things happen beyond our control in all areas of our lives, from the weather to the Supreme Court rulings. We cannot control the thoughts, beliefs, or actions of others. (Those of you with children especially understand what I mean!) However, we can manage our responses to external stimuli and our attitudes about the future. This month, allow the spiritual forces of the universe– or as I like to say, the forces of magic– to take the wheel.
On June 21, the Sun enters Cancer, making it a great time to network and connect with helpful people. If you are looking for a new opportunity or wish to follow a different career path, rely on help from others. Mars and Jupiter shine in motivational Aries, firing up your ambition and drive.
Work is busy, and you’re ready for a vacation. If last month’s stressors caught up with you, give yourself a break. Press the pause button in small ways throughout the month, especially on June 14, when the Sagittarius Full Moon activates a polarity between independence and interdependence. Eliminating judgment can help you access more wisdom.
On June 28, the Cancer New Moon promises a gift of faith. Be mindful of your thoughts at the end of the month; you’ve got more manifestation power. As Neptune goes retrograde that day, it reminds you that relaxation is an antidote to anxiety, but it needs to be true self-care. What is the most loving thing you can do for yourself? If you ask yourself that question each day, you’ll strengthen your acceptance of yourself and your life situations. When you do this, you move away from control and toward wholeness.
Your ruling planet Jupiter is moving through fiery Aries, and it’s a motivational force in your life. For the next year, you’re moving along an open road without any obstacles. It’s an exciting time! What will you create? What will you use your fire to give birth to? Let yourself revel in the possibilities, staying open to mystery and magic.
On June 3, Mercury goes direct, and you exit the comedy of errors that has played out in your one-on-one relationships. Over the past three weeks, you’ve had the chance to tell the truth. You’ve become more honest with yourself, too. It’s been intense, right? In shining a light on your shadows, you’ve set yourself free. So, you’ll be happy to hear your communication flows in a steady rhythm after June 13 – less intense and more amusing. You can laugh again.
Speaking of fun, Venus enters Gemini on June 13, and love feels playful and free, a vibe that can help alleviate commitment fears. Any time spent alone will seem more like a gift than an invitation to loneliness. Some might say you’re practicing self-love, but I say you’re spoiling your inner child in the best way possible.
The Sagittarius Full Moon on June 14 invites you on a journey, which could mean an inward-oriented spiritual expedition or flying to a new destination. Either way, delight in the discoveries you make.
This month, even finances feel more manageable. You may consider finding new ways to invest your resources after the solstice on June 21. As we close the month, the Cancer New Moon on June 28 is best for dealing with debt and balancing your budget. Issues of self-worth may underlie current financial concerns. (See the line about the inner child for the antidote.)
The Sagittarius Full Moon on June 14 invites you on a journey, which could mean a spiritual expedition or flying to a new destination. Either way, delight in the discoveries you make.
What makes you laugh, Capricorn? Cue up your favorite funny movies and keep your most lighthearted friends on call. We want to infuse comedy into your month to counterbalance some of life’s recent intensity. I have a collection of comedies ready to watch at any time when I start to feel bogged down by work and commitments, and I encourage you to do the same! Yes, there are serious events in your life and the world, but the Gemini Sun urges us to play, especially on June 14 when the Sagittarius Full Moon invites you to laughter as an act of radical healing.
With Mars and Jupiter in Aries, you could feel fired up about unfair situations. Let this passion fuel your resolve to implement healthy changes in your relationships and work. On June 21, the Sun moves into Cancer, and you’ll want to look at the ways you siphon off your own joy. Have you internalized the limiting voices of your parents, teachers, or strict bosses? If so, the Cancer New Moon on June 28 could be a turning point directing you to more freedom.
If you need a mental reset, declutter your space. On June 7, the Virgo Moon shines her light on the messy places in your home and life, so you can see what needs your attention. Look at the feng shui of your home’s wealth sector for extra credit.
Venus moves through commitment-oriented Taurus until June 13, shining her light on your romantic relationships and creative projects. You have more courage to assert yourself with your partners and lovers and express what you want. Notice what you tend to avoid, and track the underlying fears associated with those patterns. Love without resentment is playful and free.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18):
Cue What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong, and let it be the theme song for your month.
I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world!
After last month’s intensity, you’re ready for a break and maybe a vacation. So, as things relax this month, you can better relish the world’s beauty and appreciate the wonderful aspects of your life.
Travel is a possibility with Mars motivating you to follow your curiosity, and you could discover a new perspective by changing your view of the horizon line. Your inner child wants to play under the Gemini Sun, but Saturn’s held you in a tight grip this year as it moves through your sign. Can your superconscious inner authority parent relax, too? The Full Moon on June 14 gives you a chance to practice integrating both parts to become more balanced.
The Gemini Sun brings you a muse for all your passion projects, and as Mercury enters Gemini on June 13, your creative imaginings take form. With Jupiter and Mars in fiery Aries, you are turbo-charged and ready to take any action steps needed to fulfill your goals. Work priorities center on communication, public relations, and marketing. In business, think local but dream global. Get creative with your words and use them with precision.
The Sun enters Cancer on June 21, and the Cancer New Moon on the 28th marks the beginning of a health commitment. What small changes can you make to support your wellbeing? Think of health in terms of wholeness – body, mind, spirit, relationships, community, and contribution to the world. Strive for optimum balance this month, and let that be your primary goal.
Have you been noticing number sequences lately? As if each time you look at the clock, it’s 11:11 or 2:22? Or perhaps you’ve had other signs and synchronicities. In Man and His Symbols, Carl Jung writes about synchronistic events:
“…too often they pass unnoticed, because the individual has not learned to watch for such coincidences and to make them meaningful in relation to the symbolism of his dreams.”
Pay attention and notice what meaningful encounters and mystical phenomena that ensue this month. Synchronicity reminds us we are in communication (and cooperation) with our spiritual helpers and the forces of magic at all times. Perhaps you have lost faith and don’t feel very connected. If so, you could experience a shift around June 3 when Mercury stations direct, bringing us all back online.
Saturn goes retrograde on June 4, inviting you to explore aspects of family life that may have been hidden before. With Mercury in Gemini after June 13, you could dig up family archives or take a trip back to your hometown. You’re less nostalgic than last month, and you’re more interested in discovering the truth.
Jupiter in fiery fire-sign Aries feels like money burning a hole in your pocket. Before you go on a spending spree, be mindful of the long-term picture. While you can dream of and manifest abundance, that doesn’t necessarily mean funds are available for spending on your big-ticket item today. Mars in Aries can mean acting on an impulse, and that could be fun if you feel secure about your finances.
Professionally, this month offers opportunities for expressing your creative genius, especially with the Full Moon on June 14. As the Sun enters Cancer on June 21, you’re ready to change the rhythm of your daily life to allow for more creative time and space.
