Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
June is always a month of two halves for you, for this is the month when one solar year comes to an end and another begins. The closer you get to the Sun's return to Cancer on 22nd June, the more likely you are to find that the lines between the past, present and future become blurred. For while the Sun returns to Cancer at the same time each year Mercury and Venus, who travel with the Sun can arrive earlier. This creates a situation where you have planets in Cancer, opening new doors while your old solar year is still playing out. Yet while Mercury will return to Cancer on 5th June, it will be to find that Mars is already here. Mars has already spent nearly seven weeks in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, so a lot of the navel gazing and the recharging of batteries that takes place at this time of year, has already been done. Mars returned to Cancer five days before the month long wind down of this old solar year began, so the lines between the past, present and future have been blurred from the get go. What you will find, is that while there is still a need for time to hear yourself think, you won't be as exhausted as you often are at this time of year. A big feature this month is a need for balance and due to the fact that until 22nd June this is still your old solar year, one of the main areas is knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. Yet another important area where balance is a priority is on the personal and relationship fronts. Mars has returned to Cancer to find a lot of planetary activity on the relationship front and he will confront those planets midmonth. As your personal and relationship needs clash there could be some tension. Yet at the same time that it is all about balance, it is also all about having the communication lines open. Fortunately, you have Mercury, the planet of communication in Cancer from 5th June to 27th June.
Week beginning Monday 24th of June 2019
What a difference a few days can make. It was only over the weekend that Mars, now in his last full week in Cancer, emerged on the other side of what had been a tense 10 day period. During that time both Mercury and Mars found themselves on the receiving end of pressure from both Saturn and Pluto. Yet this was running its course just as the Sun returned to Cancer over the weekend, to begin your birthday month and new solar year. Mars mission to see you fight to take your personal power back was ending its most challenging phase, just as your birthday month and new solar year began. In the lead up to next week's solar eclipse and a chance for major new beginnings, this has been a chance to expose anything that is holding you back. At the same time that tensions dial back there are some exciting new developments across the income, work and career fronts that are set to gather momentum over the coming weeks.
Monday 24th of June 2019
A week on from a Full Moon that saw the Sun and Moon clash as a Full Moon that saw busy lunar and reflective solar vibes clash there is one last clash here and the timing couldn't be better. Venus is the last planet to move through a reflective part of your chart this year and to oppose Jupiter in your work sector. Their opposition today is a chance to put knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off to the test. With things taking off across the income, work and career fronts, the timing couldn't be better.
