The month of June is sunny and sociable and famed for its weddings. The ancient Romans named this month of the year after Juno, the wife of the King of the Gods, Jupiter. Astrologically, Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter and is the sign opposite Gemini. Juno and Jupiter often had their disagreements but they remained in love with each other because each one had that special fascination and quality that the other could not live without.
So, as June is the month of brides and weddings, let’s take a look at what might help to make a romantic partnership long lasting in love and happiness for each of the sun signs with their beloved other.
May 21 – June 20
Happy birthday, Gemini! This is your time of year when you feel completely in tune with the world around you. Summer is here and it’s time to get out there and do that networking you are so famous for – bringing your friends together through barbecues on the beach or catch up evenings on the illuminated patios of your favourite city restaurants. Sun in Gemini, ruled by Mercury, you need to talk – and to talk with someone who is like minded and witty and who even likes to flirt a bit, just like you. You need good mental rapport with your beloved and, very importantly that your soul mate appreciates your need to feel free within your relationship – then life can be one long sparkling journey for you both.
Look out for a surprise windfall in the first week that will help you make those domestic changes you’ve been planning for some time. By the month’s end you will have achieved your goals and should be happy with the new home look.
The new moon in your own sign on the 3rd and Venus there from the 9th brings happiness and pleasure into your relationships during June when you could be arranging a romantic escape with your partner around the time of the full moon on the 18th – it’s a great month for love so enjoy every moment to the full.
It’s all about finding some time for rest, relaxation and a healthier way of eating for you, this month. It all kicks off with the new moon on the 3rd when a close friend may let you into a secret on how they get the most from their diet that can also help you. Pace yourself, don’t be tempted to try too hard and the results could be amazing!
Get together with your partner mid-month and plan some fun outings for your children – hunting down clues to find a secret treasure and visits to theme parks in the first two weeks will make the whole family very happy!
June 21 – July 22
At this time of year, you may often find yourself taking walks and going on outings where you can enjoy watching the birds and the insects among the flowers and the trees. As June unfolds, take advantage of the longer, brighter and warmer days and plan family gatherings in your garden.
Sun in Cancer describes you as a natural home maker and, being ruled by the moon, you are very emotional and sensitive. Similar to Taurus, you need to feel secure with a comfortable and settled family life to make your heart truly happy. So, your perfect other is one who, like you, treasures family and home as the two things that give meaning and purpose to your lives together.
You’ll be travelling more than usual during the first half of June and some of the trips could take you a long way from home. One of these journeys could find you in an idyllic location mid-month that offers you all the things that make you feel truly alive and totally delight your senses.
A new friend in your social circle during the second half of June could give you some unusual insightful advice on how to handle a disagreement in your personal life and it may lead to you taking a completely different philosophical view about the importance of love and marriage.
It may be an emotionally tense time for you around the middle of the month when you are trying to do too much to help your partner and keep all the family arrangements running smoothly. Make some time for an outing to a peaceful location, near water, if possible, and any stress will just float away.
Any surprise treats that you arrange for your brood are likely to include their friends, especially during the first week. A close friend or your partner will be there to help ensure the arrangements go well. Family is all important to you, as a Cancerian mum, and you may find yourself helping your children to create their own special Father’s Day cards with their own hand written messages to give on the 17th.
July 23 – August 22
You are fantastic at organising legendary get-togethers for all the friends who are special to you and the month of June puts an emphasis on this. Look for venues where you can have fun, laugh, relax and enjoy the amenities that are on offer and expect to organise several events like this as June unfolds.
Sun in Leo, ruled by the sun, you always seems to be at the heart of everything, including romantic relationships. When the depth of love and inspiration you can give to your beloved other and the clear message that you are always there for your partner is appreciated and returned you have found the one who is right for you throughout your life.
A female colleague in your working environment could be very helpful in providing insight and advice on how to get the most out of your professional arrangements and the resulting transformation could be both incredibly beneficial and constructive in a very long term and long lasting way.
Taking the initiative to bring out any problems between you and your partner in the second half of June will help to calm any temporarily troubled waters. Re-visiting past emotional happinesses will lead to a greater closeness and deeper understanding between you from the 27th when Mercury moves into your own sign.
Being a very dependable and conscientious person, you can sometimes accept deadlines for projects that make you push yourself very hard. Look out for the temptation to do this, mid-month, take a step back and assess the resources of your supporters then, based on what is realistically possible, make a practical and workable commitment and all should be well.
As a Leo mum, you love arranging parties for your children and this month there will be many opportunities for you to bring them together with their friends. Expect a very grand gathering in the around the time of the full moon on the 18th! Father’s Day may be a clue.
Aug 23 – Sep 22
You’ll be looking at your home and garden in the bright warm sunny days of June and thinking about getting rid of all that stuff that you no longer need and turning your attention to reviving and redecorating your home as well as re-planting and re-landscaping your garden. It’s the perfect month to breathe new life into all your surroundings.
Sun in Virgo, ruled by Mercury, you have very high standards and so can expect a lot from your other half – who will have very high standards to reach. For you, friendship is the foundation on which you can build a lasting love and, once you have established that you work well as a couple, you will create the perfect partnership for you both.
If you are trying to balance your working life and professional commitments with your domestic and family responsibilities, Venus moving into Gemini around the time of the new moon on the 3rd will help you to achieve this. You’ll find ideas and inspiration may come via the internet and social networking and by the time of the full moon on the 18th those improved arrangements will be delivering good results.
When Mercury moves into your area of friendships and social connections on the 4th, spending time with those you love and appreciate becomes even more important to you. You’ll be pleasantly surprised around mid-month when the one you love the most is happy to help out and support you with your cherished aims and goals, and the results make everything perfect. Remember this when things get a bit hectic during the third week and you and those you love become frustrated with temporary obstacles to your progress.
Even though you make exacting demands upon yourself, you are the sign with the most common sense in the Zodiac so when things get a bit intense around the time of the full moon on the 18th, be realistic about the challenges and accept that some things just need to be allowed to run their course. In this way, you’ll minimise your stress levels and maximise your sense of well being, regardless.
After the new moon on the on the 3rd you’ll find yourself organising a family trip, possibly abroad and to places where your children have never been. You and they will enjoy all the new things that you will learn together.
Sep 23 – Oct 22
You just can’t help seeing the beautiful in everything and this time of year is a real inspiration to you. You can feel your energy rising and your creative interests taking over. You’ll find yourself using your ideas to come up with some thrilling romantic days and evenings that you and your partner will remember for the rest of the year.
Sun in Libra, ruled by Venus, seeks harmony, equality and balance in your relationships and especially in marriage. You naturally seek to be part of a long term partnership in order to feel complete in yourself and, as your natural charm is very attractive to others, your partner needs to feel confident in your love for him and comfortable with the way in which others enjoy your company.
You may be sorting out legal matters, contracts and agreements during the first half of June but be sure to read the content carefully, making sure that you are getting what you want and, in this way, any confusion or misunderstandings with people in authority around the time of the full moon on the 18th, can be minimised or even avoided altogether.
You and your beloved will be working together to transform your domestic environment making it more of a statement of your lives with each other. There may be a couple of disagreements en route in the second week but an objective expert will help resolve them and you will both be pleased with the results.
There are so many new responsibilities emerging in your life, right now, that you may feel a bit overwhelmed, especially around the middle of the month and towards the month’s end. Your home will provide you with an opportunity to escape – listening to music or making more time in your every day routine for a window of calm and tranquillity – which will be just the antidote to restore balance in your life.
If your children are more argumentative than normal around mid-month, sit down with them, talk about new goals and objectives and work out ways in which they can achieve them. Get them busy with all of this and peace will be restored in time for Father’s Day on the 16th.
Oct 23 – Nov 21
June tends to be a month for you when you take another look at how you are running your day to day interests and commitments. Thoughts may turn to getting yourself in shape for that special holiday later in the summer. Explore all avenues, gather information that you think will work for you, put a plan together and then act on it!
Sun in Scorpio, ruled by passionate and fiery Mars, loves deeply, intensely and even possessively in a very protective way. The openness and honesty of your other half, and their ability to feel comfortable sharing all the details of their life with you will create the perfect relationship for you.
You could be thinking about taking a short course to improve your skills during June and the opportunity to do this may arrive around the time of the new moon on the 3rd. Keep your expectations to a realistic level so that you don’t overburden yourself with too much new information and you’ll be able to put it to good use, professionally, by the time of the full moon on the 18th.
The emphasis is on sharing experiences with the one you love, this month. It’s a good time to make space for each other and talk about how you both feel – particularly around New Moon at the beginning of June. The revelations that you both make will increase your shared emotional happinesses, especially after Venus moves into Gemini on the 9th.
The intense atmosphere that is around you in the second half of June is nothing that your Scorpio strength and fortitude cannot cope with. However, a short break somewhere soothing and exotic makes you feel good and reinforces a sense of positivity in you, even if the journey is a bit frustrating en route.
As the school year begins to come to an end, there is a sense of excitement in your children about the coming holidays in July and August. But there is still studying to be done, in the meantime. You are one of the strongest and most resourceful mums of the zodiac and your talent for managing will resolve any pressures your offspring may feel. If they are looking for a special gift for dad on Father’s Day, a shopping trip mid-month may deliver a good result.
Nov 22 – Dec 21
It is so easy to get out and about and meet people in June, which can often be a month for you when your activities and interests generate new friends with lasting bonds. You may find yourself drawn to events and people who are not part of your usual circle but you are likely to be intrigued and delighted with what you discover.
Sun in Sagittarius, ruled by freedom loving Jupiter, needs a partner who thinks you are the most wonderful person in the world but also accepts that you need quite a lot of space and freedom in which to pursue your adventures in the big wide world. Your partner, though, should be able to hold their own within your relationship so that you can be together and independent, all at the same time!
Property – your home or an investment – could provide a pleasant financial return in the second half of the month. Resist an urge to take action when you feel that a money related issue has ground to a halt and any gains you have made will be protected.
Your partner will be in a romantic and loving mood in June and will come up with some new ways for you to enjoy the life that you share together. The grand gestures may seem to be more than you feel you should have but accept them, enjoy them and revel in the attention you receive.
The new moon on the 3rd heralds a new cycle for you where you can re-visit your values and resources to change the way you currently organise your daily health regime. New ways of utilising old structures will totally transform how you feel and all for the better!
You’ll be surprised at your partner’s enthusiasm for being with the children during this month. There is plenty of fun for them at home and your children will love the ideas that their dad comes up with for them. An outing for dad on Father’s Day may involve a trip on water!
Dec 22 – Jan 19
If you have not yet got your life together and your daily commitments sorted out by this time of the year, take some time out in June to shrug your shoulders and take life as it comes. You are resourceful and good at thinking on your feet, even if you prefer not to do that so embrace the whimsical nature of this month and resign yourself to just having fun.
Sun in Capricorn is ruled by the cautious and careful planet Saturn, so you will go steadily and carefully when you first enter into the most important relationship in your life. A partner who values tradition, conventionality and financial security and sets out to keep these qualities safe and treasured for you both will bring you much happiness together.
An invitation you receive in the second half of the month may not be exactly what you think so talk to the person in charge in order to get a completely clear picture before you accept the offer. The importance of this will become known and fully understood by the time of the full moon on the 18th.
You may feel that you need to take on more responsibility within your close personal relationship because you genuinely want to help your partner share the load in your journey through life together. Just be aware, particularly in the second week, that your partner may feel they don’t need so much help and support. A sensitive approach will help your partner to value the help that you offer.
Venus moves into Gemini on the 9th June and brings harmony, tranquillity, beauty and calmness into the area of your life that is linked to your sense of well being. It all feels so good, it’s hard to believe it’s true. Avoid the temptation to over-indulge in the last week and by the end of the month, you’ll feel the best you have felt all year.
You and your partner will be planning some unusual activities for your children in the first week of June where a trip to the seaside could turn them into beachcombers who bring back discoveries that could transform the family home!
Jan 20 – Feb 18
June is a time of year when you feel you have, at last, got enough spare time to enjoy some creative time with people who mean a great deal to you. You are the kind of person everyone wants to have on their team because you put your heart and soul into any group endeavour that you love. This month you will have more opportunities and more resources at your command for all of this so just take a big jump and go for it!
Sun in Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, planet of the new, different and original and signifying your great talent for being at ease with anyone from any level of society or cultural background. You are a visionary and a humanitarian and your perfect partner in life is the one who can share these qualities and who, as both friend and lover, provides enthusiasm, understanding and practical support throughout your lives together.
Aquarians love anything that is unusual and novel and this goes for people, places, possessions and experiences. Any interest you take up, any work you take on has to have these qualities to keep you fascinated. Around the time of the new moon on the 3rd, a visitor to your home may have you intrigued with the stories they have to tell about things that are normally never spoken about inspiring you to think along new lines where your career interests are concerned.
Around the middle of the month, feelings could run high and a competitive and argumentative atmosphere could put the links between you under some pressure. Your logical and ingenious approach to problem solving will sort it all out by the time of the full moon on the 18th.
Some information you may come across during the first week may set you thinking about revising your existing health routine. You are likely to be tackling this mid-month – getting rid of those unnecessary burdens that seemed to have been following you around for years. By the month’s end, when Mercury moves out of your area of health, you’ll be very satisfied with the improvements you’ve made.
As an Aquarian mum you enjoy going to events to watch your children take part in team efforts, making new friends and strengthening existing friendships as they go. You’ll find that you are supporting them often in this way during June and especially around the time of the full moon mid-month, when something you and they have been working towards as a joint project with friends, is finally achieved.
February 19 – March 20
Your home is your first sanctuary and if you can’t be at home you will easily create a sanctuary wherever you need to be. This month, though, with the brighter days and the long evenings you will find it easy to share the peaceful and supportive environment that you naturally create around yourself, and you’ll feel inspired and uplifted by how much your friends and family appreciate it.
Sun in Pisces, ruled by Neptune, you are very much in love with love and, from being small, fairy tale romances that end happily ever after will have tugged at your heart strings. Now, it’s all about getting that emotional bond strengthened and creating an empathic and intuitive understanding between you both because this loving link is essential to your mutual happiness. A partner who is strong and practical but touchingly caring and romantic is the perfect one for you.
Your social circle is set to expand during June as new people move into your community who may transform the way you shape and pursue your goals in life and the kind of friendships you make. Life will become busier, consequently, so you may find it difficult to fit all the new arrangements in by the month’s end. Your ruler, Neptune, turns retrograde in your sign on the 21st giving you time and space to reflect on all this new activity and work out how it has fundamentally transformed your life for the better.
The second half of June is a key romantic time for you and your beloved other. Arrange some romantic evenings out, especially mid-month, and you’ll be amazed at the passionate conversation and loving affection that goes with it, not just from your partner to you but from you to your partner, too.
A surprising opportunity to take up a new pastime or interest may present itself during the first week and you may join a local group that focuses on making the most of your skills and talents. This is great for your sense of well being and self-esteem and the knowledge you gain may lead to surprisingly beneficial changes after Mercury moves into Leo on the 27th.
Your children will seem to have more energy than usual, this month, so finding ways to help them channel it will be your major concern. Going boating or on a river trip, mid-month, and re-visiting the arrangements after the full moon on the 18th, will turn out to be the perfect way to keep them busy, happy and pleased with their experiences.
March 21 – April 19
You are one of the most energetic of all the zodiac signs and you can also be one of the most competitive. While you will put your whole self into any activity, indoors or out, at heart you are an outdoors person so you love this month because it’s fresh and vibrant feel means that it’s easy for you to get everyone together for some healthy team exercise, whether it’s in the local park, your garden or just a local run to raise funds for community projects.
Sun in Aries, as you’d expect, you tend to fall wholeheartedly in love, being ruled, of course, by passionate Mars. Your special someone is supportive but decisive, like you, and, like you, hates boredom and monotonous repetition. Planning for the future and building a happy life around your family together is at the heart of a happy relationship for you.
You are naturally competitive and you will feel the need to push forward in your career interests, this month – particularly around the middle of June and during the last week. It’s hard for your enthusiastic and outgoing sign to be patient in the face of delays but if you can do this you will actually reach your goals faster and with minimum opposition.
You are probably the best sign in the Zodiac for making your desires known and clearly felt. You’re courageous and ardent in your love for that special person in your life and don’t let any disagreements or misunderstandings undermine your loyalty and passion for the one you love. After Venus enters your area of communication on the 9th, all that loving understanding will be even more appreciated and returned!
Mid- month onwards you realise that it is time to look at all the responsibilities and commitments you have and how they may be holding you back. Taking action on the home front, re- organising domestic routines and working schedules will provide you with more freedom so that by the month’s end, you feel re-vitalised and re-energised, taking charge of your life direction, once more.
Your children are likely to be busy with end of school year work during June so you can use this time to plan for a special trip or outing for them all, after Mercury moves into Leo on the 27th. As an Aries, you love excitement, adventure and even a bit of drama so a trip to an outstanding theme park is a good way to reward them for all the hard work they’ve put in during the school year.
April 20 – May 20
Your sign is naturally associated with food – growing it, cooking it, eating it – and, perhaps at this time of year more than at others, the markets and the stores are full of wonderful vegetables and fruits that make shopping for suppers in your garden and picnics in the countryside with friends and family so deeply rewarding and delightful.
Sun in Taurus, you are loyal, loving and sensuous, being ruled by the planet Venus. Creature comforts are all important to you to make sure that love is truly real and forever as far as you are concerned. Security in an emotionally fulfilling relationship works perfectly for you.
From the 4th, when Mercury moves into your area of communication, you’ll be tweeting and texting when the ideas start to flow from the end of the first week onwards. You may find yourself drawn into some heated discussions around ideals and philosophy but your inspired and intuitive views will gain you new friends and new admiration.
It’s up to you, Taurus, to organise some special time for you and your beloved to get together in a romantic setting sharing and enjoying new experiences in new places. Your sign is not noted for its love of change but the planet Uranus, now in Taurus, provides you with some ideas that surprise your partner during the first week of June, so take the reins and the results will leave you feeling wonderful.
June is a positive month for you, Taurus. You love this time of year and it really delights your senses and relaxes you. The only possible snag is that you are more tempted to eat out and eat deliciously – speciality ice creams on the beach, wonderful meals at favourite restaurants on these long summer evenings. Going for long walks in the countryside is the perfect way to burn off all those extra calories!
A get together with friends and their children during the second week of June turns into a really happy social occasion for all of you but you may be feeling particularly extravagant so keep an eye on expenditure and all will be well!
