This is an exciting month for you Gemini, when you are entering into a new phase. Unexpected realizations that contribute to your understanding of your own identity are plentiful, and your sense of self can no longer be attributed to your work in the world, as opposed to more private conceptions. You are intuitionally attuned to hidden layers of your psyche, and inner wounding could arise for greater integration and healing. Your career sector is subject to idealization and illusion, which could mightily affect the way that you visualize future plans. This is a topsy-turvy month for you in many ways, especially after the 17th and the retrograde, in Cancer, of your ruler, Mercury, joining that of relationship-oriented Venus through your sign. You might as well just go with it. The Solstice eclipse and New Moon of June 20th is another significant juncture when intimations from beyond the physical mingle with a very practical intention to take seriously the massive shift in values within you that has been a long time coming.

The Sun and Venus currently transiting together in Gemini brings attention on to how you feel in your body. Physical exercise and healthy habits will be easier to implement right now as the Sun with Venus carries momentum for these matters to be implemented in your life. It’s an excellent time to assess how your physical well being is influencing your overall ability to get things done. Uranus in Taurus is carrying a certain level of unseen tension in your life like a stressor that is hard to pinpoint. Attending to your physical body will reduce the anxiety you feel around things that escape you.
Venus retrograde joins the Sun in Gemini on June 3rd which should bring some clarity surrounding your desires. The priority needs to be on yourself but that is easier said than done. Self-esteem and self-care are closely related, and this month it’s all about you. Venus currently moving retrograde through your sign is giving you the opportunity to reflect on your sense of self-worth, and how this is reflected in your choice of partners. Ultimately, no one is in a better position to know what you want. You can’t expect the people in your life to know. You have asked for what you need and this is a work in progress. More extensively, Venus retrograde is making you aware of the place of pleasure in your life. It’s becoming obvious that your priorities will need adjustment. All work and no play makes a Gemini way too serious!
The Full Moon in Sagittarius taking place on June 5th is the first eclipse on the Sagittarius-Gemini axis since the Nodes of the Moon have changed signs. This penumbral lunar eclipse takes place in your house of partnerships. Giving and receiving has been a big theme and you are reaching the end of what you are able to give. A convoluted situation in connection with a business or intimate partnership could come to the forefront. This eclipse could also bring up a financial situation that binds you with someone else. Mars squaring the Moon at the time of the eclipse in your vocational sector could also carry tension into your workplace. It's not a great day to negotiate important decisions as you could feel more emotional than usual. Conversations taking place now will be coloured by personal moods. The opportunity for catharsis is here. However you might want to select where and with whom you engage on the first weekend of June.
The Last Quarter Moon in Pisces on the late evening of June 12th highlights tension between your career and your personal needs. If you are giving too much at work, it will become increasingly evident that you need better boundaries. You are forced to make a choice between pursuing a goal or prioritize your well being. Not an easy decision but your body might decide for you if you don’t make the call. Your ruling planet Mercury stations retrograde in Cancer on the late evening of June 17th until July 12th. This period will be excellent for re-evaluating your financial situation.
The second half of June will bring ample opportunities to rethink your finances. The Sun enters the sign of Cancer on June 20th signalling the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. A few hours later a solar eclipse occurs when the Moon enters Cancer and meets with the Sun. This annular solar eclipse is the last one in Cancer from a series that began in July 2018. This solar eclipse is particularly potent as it sits at the zero degree point that marks the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. A cycle comes to a close, and a new one begins in connection with your financial situation, the way you make money, and new ideas emerging around possible revenue streams.
Venus stations direct in your sign on June 25th easing off on the recent self-analysis in connection with your body. You should feel better equipped to understand your needs and desires and to start integrating the revelations of the last month.
Mars enters Aries on June 7th where it will be for the next six months. Mars in Aries will increase your interactions and your desire to socialize.
Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn conjoin for a second time at the end of the month. Their first conjunction on April 4th, initiated a new cycle of growth in connection with an intimate partnership or a financial collaboration. This second conjunction could bring up issues that need to be addressed before you can move on. Unresolved emotions could surface in connection with what binds you intimately with others. The last conjunction here will take place mid-November but for now you might have to talk things through. Mercury in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus on the same day will support you in expressing yourself and your needs genuinely.
