Welcome to June! The landscape looks good and PS Mercury is no longer going backwards. I’ve written these Stars twice this month – that’s what you get for submitting written work on the last day of a Mercury retrograde!
However note that Mars, Saturn and Pluto are all still reversing as June dawns.
That means there is still a lot of re-do, do-over, back-to-the-past, restructure, re-envisage, re-transform energy around. The fact that we also get the second of two Sagittarius Full Moons adds weight to the feeling that we are being given a message and we need to get that message before we move on! See your Monthly Stars for more info…
Possibly the biggest news of the month for all of us, though, is that June is a month where massive changes are possible.
Jupiter and Pluto are going to be forming a rare and harmonious angle to each other. This is big new and promises the chance for big changes.
Jupiter is the planet of good luck and “lots of” (Jupiter can even be excessive), while Pluto is the planet of power and passion and profound change.
So when you put them together you get a lucky chance for “lots of” profound positive change.
To tap into this, think about where in your life you want a really big change. What would transform your life? What could you happily kick to the curb and move on from? What would give your life more meaning?
These are questions we all need to be asking ourselves.
This could be your lucky month, Virgo. You have wonderful energies for doing whatever you want. Think of the world as your oyster and enjoy yourself. And if the world doesn’t’ feel like your oyster then it’s time for you to do something about that. Widen your options. Anything to do with kids, romances and creativity is well starred now too. You really are in one of the luckiest astrological cycles that you’ll experience for some time to come. Turn your life inside out and it should still turn out ok!
The Jupiter/Pluto connection this month is the really big June picture. On a smaller scale, though, we have the Sun spending most of the month in the sign of Gemini. That puts the focus on Gemini for all of us, no matter what our sign. So it’s a very good time to think about how well we are doing with our communications, travel plans, and our interactions with neighbours and our siblings.
The great thing about having the Sun in Gemini at the time of the Jupiter/Pluto connection is that it will be easier to keep the lines of communication open as we aim for the big changes.
Whatever you are planning, be sure to keep talking or writing this month. Keep the ideas flowing throughout June, and see where it leads you. With Mercury retracing his steps now, something which happened recently could be redone or undone. Keep talking.
The Sun shines a sort of celestial spotlight on your chart. It shows you where your focus is likely to be for the coming weeks. So here is info about what the Sun in Gemini is spotlighting your chart this month:
The Sun is moving through your 10th house – that’s the part of your chart connected to your career and reputation. You can expect to start feeling a whole lot more ambitious – at the very least, you need to use the coming few weeks to think about the direction your career and/or life is headed in and if you’re happy with that. If not, then the next New Moon brings your chance for change. If you know you’re being asked to do more than you can manage at the moment, don’t be afraid to speak up. You’ll be glad you did later. Assuming you are not feeling overwhelmed, this could be the time when you get some kind of recognition or award for your hard work – lap it up!
Meanwhile, if you’re wondering about love and money, loving and abundant Venus is very active again this month, first clashing with disappointing Neptune, tough Saturn and excessive Jupiter before harmonising with Uranus Neptune.
To an astrologer, that line up sounds like:
– Dramas about not being honest
– Dramas related to feeling like there is not enough
– Upsets about going too far
– Followed by positive changes related to love and money and
– Finally soul mate connections and financial inspirations
In other words, in a nutshell; there could be some harsh realities to do with love and money to face earlier on in June but by the end of it, many of us will be happy top dream a little romance and riches dream.
Once Venus moves into Cancer mid-month, there will be changes related to love and abundance. Even relationships which felt rather cold could warm up.
Here is what you can expect from the planet of love and abundance, for your sign, once she is in Cancer.
Venus will be moving through your eleventh house of wishes and friends. This Venus cycle sprinkles some magic love dust over you and your friends. OK that might sound a bit ridiculous but watch over the next few weeks. It should start to become pretty obvious which of your friends are worth keeping for life, as your relationships grow warmer and lovelier. Anyone who makes you feel less than great about yourself could be cut off your Christmas card list now. Even if life has been tough of late, being with people you love will be extra rewarding over the next four weeks. Expect to find it easier than usual to meet new people, if you know the time has come to expand your circle. If there’s something you’re keen to accomplish now and you need a friend’s help, just ask. If you’re sexy but single and looking for love, this is the ideal time to either go to as many parties as you’re invited to, or to throw a party or dinner part of your own and see what happens. Anywhere that you have to spend time with lots of people rather than one on one is best for you over the new few weeks.
And here is a rundown of the main Venus dates for the month ahead (applicable to all the signs). Make a note of these in your diary, especially if you have love or money concerns right now. They are the peak Venus times for June.
June 3 – Venus clashes with Neptune – avoid anyone you think is spinning you a yarn re love or money
June 5 – Venus clashes with Jupiter – how much love is too much love?
June 7 – The Sun and Venus connect – focus on love today and good things can happen. Or on cash.
June 12 – Venus harmonises with Uranus – sudden reversals and positive developments re romance and riches possible
June 27 – Venus and Neptune connect – making tonight the most romantic night of the month
YOUR JUNE MINI MOONSCOPE MESSAGE
Virgo – it’s the start of a new career cycle for you and the Moon is reminding you that a work/life balance is essential
The June New Moon takes place the sign of Gemini – this means yet more Gemini energy in the air – therefore more reasons to really think about how well you’re communicating.
If you get nothing else from reading your stars this month, get that. How well you get your message across personally and professionally is well worth working on this month, no matter which sign you are!

For you as a Virgo this New Moon is all about career
Let’s hope you’re feeling revved up about your career or studies because the New Moon taking place this month is flooding your professional life or your student life with potential and ambition. If you’re already on the right path in your working life, this lunation here can really amp things up. However, if you’re struggling professionally and not quite sure where to turn, use this New Moon as a marker. Over the coming four weeks, you need to really put yourself out there in terms of talking to experts who can help you get where you want to be career wise, and also in terms of very basic things like research your job market.

A note for all the signs: If you’re a Moon follower you might realise that this is the second Sagittarius Full Moon in a row! This is not known as a Blue Moon (see below for that!) Rather it means that it really, really is time to say good bye to someone or something. Don’t panic. It could be a bad habit you decide to let go of. It could be bitterness, anger or resentment (now there’s a good idea!) Or if you know one relationship set-up or situation really has reached its Best Before date, then let it go…

Also, note that throughout June, Mars will still be reversing. It has now crossed back over into the sign of Scorpio. This rare retrograde is the reason that many people are feeling a little stuck in the mud of life! Mars is the forwards-moving, energised planet without which nothing much would happen! And yet here he is, retrograding. The retrograde ends on June 30.
Here’s a reminder of where he’s going backwards for all the signs
Aries – because you’re ruled by Mars, in fact this cycle affects your whole life – be patient!
Taurus – your love life may feel on hold – or your whole life may feel on hold!
Gemini – the Mars reverse cycle can make your daily life feel like wading through treacle
Cancer – issues related to romance, kids (your own or someone else’s) or creativity may feel stalled
Leo – family matters and issues on the home front may not be moving forwards as fast as you’d like
Virgo – Mars reversing in your Mind Zone is showing you the value of keeping your cool
Libra – delays and frustrations related to money are possible – retain your self-worth!
Scorpio – Mars is reversing in Scorpio! Slow things down or risk serious vexation
Sagittarius – if worries are keeping you up at night, it’s time to face up to your fears
Capricorn – friends may not be as warm and fuzzy as you’d like. Wishes coming true may be delayed
Aquarius – Mars is reversing in your career zone –holdups at work are annoying but temporary
Pisces – it’s a good time for you to slow things down a little. Delays re study and travel are possible.
This is a really good year to be a Virgo. Doesn’t feel like it yet? Be sure you’re not falling victim to ye age old Virgo habit of worrying about things which might never happen. If you focus on your concerns it’s much harder to realise how lucky you are. Count your blessings.
