Bohemian Horoscopes: June 2020.
Aries (March 21-April 20)
June is not a particularly good month to start a romance or try to solve a major problem, as the planets play games with partnerships, scramble your communication antennae and muddle your mind. Conversing with others — in person and online — will be frustrating, so steer clear of fake news, focus on the facts and be extra careful when posting comments online. With Mercury retrograde (from June 18) and Venus reversing through your social media zone (until June 25) it will be very easy to send the wrong message to the wrong person.
Taurus (April 21-May 21)
If you are attached, things could get hot and heavy around June 5, when the fiery Full Moon eclipse stimulates your intimacy zone. Single Bulls, don’t accept second best. Have the patience and confidence to wait for your soul mate to arrive. And remember, Venus (your ruling planet) is still in retrograde mode until June 25. So when it comes to relationships and money, tread carefully. Mercury also goes retro on June 18, so when you’re communicating with others, stay on topic and avoid the tendency to get involved in pointless arguing.
Gemini (May 22-June 21)
With Venus reversing through your sign (until June 25), strive to manage misunderstandings and patch up problems in a cooperative fashion as you hold out the olive branch of peace. Attached Twins, your love life looks problematic, as you and your sweetheart seem to be heading in opposite directions. So take the time to re-connect and find some middle ground. Singles, are you sending out mixed messages? With Mercury also turning retrograde, it’s a suitable time to revise and rewrite your online dating profile.
Cancer (June 22-July 23)
The fiery Full Moon eclipse (on June 5) shines a spotlight on a professional or volunteer project, as you provide assistance to someone who is lonely, unwell or in financial trouble. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes that you’re not aware of, especially during the first three weeks of June. So do some detective work and check the facts thoroughly before you make any firm decisions. You’ll find solo pursuits — like meditating, listening to music, reading and writing — will help soothe your frustration and calm your frazzled mind.
Leo (July 24-August 23)
The lunar eclipse (on June 5) energizes your entertainment and friendship zone. So it’s time to slowly reboot your social life, as many places around the world emerge out of lockdown mode. You’re keen to pursue your ambitious goals for the future, but remember that Venus is retrograde until June 25 and Mercury starts reversing on June 18, so you need to be patient and persistent. Your motto for the month is from birthday great Marilyn Monroe (a Gemini with Leo rising), “We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.”
Virgo (August 24-September 23)
Virgos are usually methodical managers and awesome organizers, but this month Venus and your ruler Mercury both spend time in retro mode, so your managerial mojo may desert you as your confidence takes a nosedive. Don’t waste time feeling frustrated. Use the next few weeks to recharge your run-down batteries and reboot your self-belief. And don’t do everything by the book. Make sure you leave room in your strict schedule for inevitable messy mistakes and annoying delays. Amidst the chaos, try to have some fun along the way.
Libra (September 24-October 23)
Do your best to keep your famous Libran cool around June 5-6, when the lunar eclipse unsettles loved ones and inflames fiery emotions. Professional projects, educational matters or business plans won’t proceed quickly or smoothly, as retrograde Venus and retrograde Mercury slow things right down. The planetary patterns encourage you to perceive frustrating delays as opportunities to review, revise and reboot. Plus avoid posting anything online that is confusing or controversial and can be misconstrued.
Scorpio (October 24-November 22)
This month, the fiery Full Moon eclipse and buoyant Jupiter lift self-esteem and give you a confidence boost… if you let it. Don’t allow other people’s perception of who they think you should be crowd out your own vision of your authentic self and preferred future. If you are true to yourself, then success and satisfaction will gradually follow. So your motto for the moment is from singer and actress Judy Garland, “Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else.”
Sagittarius (November 23-December 21)
When it comes to a romantic, platonic or family relationship, prepare for a major reality check. Don’t accept everything they say as the gospel truth. They’re not necessarily lying, there’s just a lot more to a current situation than what they are telling you. If you’re searching for your soul mate, then take off your rose-colored glasses, get real, and give superficial suitors the flick. You need to pick a person who is prepared to commit to a serious long-term partnership. Otherwise they are just testing your patience and wasting your precious time.
Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
June will be a frustrating month, as Venus and Mercury reverse through your job and relationship zones respectively. In your impatient desire to get ahead, avoid the temptation to boss people around as it will only make matters worse. Instead, use the downtime to review your approach, revise your ideas and reassess your plans. Plus avoid putting professional success ahead of love, and work before family. As Marilyn Monroe observed, “A career is wonderful, but you can’t curl up with it on a cold night.”
Aquarius (January 21-February 19)
Many restless Aquarians are feeling frustrated and are keen to break free from rules and restrictions. But, if you want to enjoy the long-term rewards, then you’ll have to (temporarily) stop being so rebellious and learn to play by the short-term rules. When it comes to personal goals and professional ambitions, there is no substitute for thorough preparation. With Saturn in your sign, hasty half-baked plans just won’t work. So your motto is from Prince, “Sometimes it takes years for a person to become an overnight success.”
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Avoid making important decisions, especially involving family, friends or real estate, as your thoughts and feelings will fluctuate. Neptune squares the Sun on June 11, which can aggravate sensitivities or trigger allergic reactions, so steer clear of food, drink and drugs that don’t agree with you. With Mars and Neptune linking up in your sign (on June 13), strive to be proactive and intuitive. Be inspired by singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey, “No matter how many people give me advice, I do what my heart tells me to do.”
