This is a consequential month for you, Virgo, especially with the retrograde of Mercury, your ruler. This began last month, and has instituted a period of introspective questioning of what you are all about in terms of your outer world presence. You are also likely to see further into the transformation of your creative self-expression that has been underway for many months now, still featured in the lunations of June. The Gemini New Moon of May 30th represented a fresh start in matters of career and profession, and that combined with the ongoing retrograde indicates the potential for course adjustments based upon reconsideration of your deepest underlying motivation. You are coming to the realization that your bottom-line values must be involved in whatever it is that you do, privately as well as out in the world. Mercury changes to direct motion on June 3rd, and finally escapes its retrograde shadow period on June 18th. The Sagittarius Full Moon of June 14th is quite illuminating for you, bringing you back to the center of your psyche, to home and family concerns also, as you continue to evolve into the most authentic version of yourself that you can muster.

The month of June takes off with a New Moon in Gemini from May 30th, setting the tone for the thirty-day lunation cycle that follows. This occurred in your career sector; you could therefore have a lot to work with this month and allies who are willing to support you. Mars and Jupiter are now transiting together in Aries, which brings a powerful influence to the part of your chart that relates to shared resources and partnerships. Significant progress could be made when you team up with others, and you could benefit from the support offered to you and vice versa.
The first weekend of June comes with the need to reassess how you manage your time, as there may be a conflict between your goals and how much you can get done in one day. Mercury in Taurus stations direct on the 3rd, while squaring Saturn in Aquarius, and this may highlight an ongoing pressure you could be putting on yourself. You could feel the weight of your responsibilities more acutely, which could help you schedule your days more realistically. Staying pragmatic about what you can accomplish in one day and how you want to be spending your time could ensure your success in the long run. Saturn in Aquarius also stations retrograde on June 4th. You could gain the most traction by deliberately choosing where to focus your energies.
As June progresses, expansion and growth could be the name of your game, and your attention may be on a substantial creative goal. Mercury still in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn on the 10th, brings a supportive influence on your passions, and it may feel easier to focus on what you love.
On the 11th, Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus could bring an exciting opportunity out of the blue, especially if you've been putting yourself out there. You might have the ability to generate luck for yourself when you get out of your familiar grooves to explore new topics or expand on what you already know.
The third week of June contains significant aspects, mainly Mercury re-entering Gemini on the 13th, the Full Moon culminating in Sagittarius on the 14th, and Mars conjoining Chiron in Aries on the 15th. This sequence of aspects may highlight various parts of your life that need your attention, and you may find yourself quite busy. Mercury is transiting in Gemini until the first week of July, which may bring a fast-paced influence on all things related to your career in the following weeks.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 14th culminates in the part of your chart that relates to your home, highlighting your base of operation and your private life. The Sun and Moon square Neptune in Pisces, implying that it could feel harder to know the real intentions behind the actions of others. The Full Moon also receives a supportive sextile from Saturn in Aquarius, which means that efforts to untangle a complicated situation may be rewarded. Mars conjunct Chiron in Aries in this Full Moon could bring painful realizations or anger, but the process could be healing for you in the long run. It may feel harder to compromise with others, and you may have to work through the tension and achieve results anyway. You could have to remove a layer of deception to get to the roots of an ongoing issue, but the results could help you let go of frustrations and simply move forward.
On the 18th, Venus square Saturn can bring an incentive to commit to the things that can bring lasting satisfaction. Although there may be a sobering influence that comes with this aspect, Venus is simultaneously forming a sextile with Neptune in Pisces, which may help soften any recent difficulties you may have experienced with others. Communication should feel light and productive, especially as Mercury in Gemini sextiles Jupiter in Aries on the 20th.
The Sun enters the Cardinal Water sign of Cancer on the 21st, which signals the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun in Cancer could gradually emphasize your aspirations and dreams in the following weeks.
Venus enters Gemini a day later on the 22nd, which continues to emphasize the career sector of your chart. Much could be accomplished in tandem with your associations as a progressive influence permeates the later part of June for things that relate to your goals. Mars in Aries sextile Saturn in Aquarius on the 26th and 27th could bring the discipline you need to finish something before the end of the month.
June comes to a close on a positive note thanks to Jupiter in Aries, aspecting Venus. The New Moon in Cancer on the 28th squares Jupiter, emphasizing this pleasant aspectual connection. This could be a very social period for you when you can combine pleasure and vision toward productive aims.
