Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are retrograde already as the month opens, and things are set to get slower still as June moves on. Neptune is due to retrograde on the 18th, and Mars, the planet of activity, stations retrograde later in the month. Mars’ retrograde begins a two month long slowdown, so if you have any critical initiations to make in the next few months, do it in the first half of June.
Venus trine Neptune
Early June is a fabulous time to be out and about socially with a partner, if you have one, and to consider taking a short trip to somewhere nearby. You could road trip with a friend if you’re single, but regardless, plan to get out and have a good time in the first few days of June.

Keep your antennae up near the 5th and 7th, though. At the 5th there’s a possibility of manipulative behavior or struggles for control involving friends, lovers, children, clubs or groups you’re involved in, or a combination of those. Then later, Neptune does his best to obfuscate partnership matters, making navigating those days something of a minefield.
Venus enters Cancer
On the 9th, Venus slips into Cancer and your 12th House of secrets, a placement sometimes associated with secret love affairs. Venus isn’t well supported as she makes her annual visit this year, so if you find yourself tempted know the chances of it ending well aren’t so good.
Mercury enters Gemini
The very next day, Mercury returns to his home sign of Gemini for a three week visit, adding to the chatter in your social sector. You could receive invitations and catch up with friends until late June, when Mercury moves on to Cancer and your privacy sector.
“Early June is a fabulous time to be out and about socially with a partner, if you have one, and to consider taking a short trip to somewhere nearby. You could road trip with a friend if you’re single, but regardless, plan to get out and have a good time in the first few days of June.”
New Moon in Taurus
Take care if you’re traveling at the June 13th new moon, dear Leo. And expect to return with stories to tell–your journey is profoundly spiritual as well.
Sun enters Gemini
Your social life is spotlighted from June 15th through mid July as the sun makes his annual tour of Gemini and your 2nd House of friendship, hopes, and dreams.
Normally this is also an excellent time to take the first steps towards an important hope or dream, however this year’s transit of the sun through Gemini coincides with Mars’ retrograde, and any major projects or big initiations you begin at the new moon in Gemini bears the very real risk of fizzling out and not going anywhere.
If you have to do something, do it, but if you have the freedom to wait there are some activities it’s just best to delay for the next few months.
Venus opposes Mars
Cooperation could be challenging to come by near the 21st, when Venus and Mars face off. A rival at work may be cause for consternation, but so close to Mars’ retrograde it may not be wise to be the aggressor or display anger.
Mercury enters Cancer
Mercury tours Cancer for three weeks beginning June 25th, and our conversations may take on a more sentimental tone during this time.
Mars stations retrograde
Expect a slowdown in work related progress during July and August while Mars is retrograde, beginning June 26th. You may be going back over and redoing previous work, possibly looking for new approaches to something that isn’t currently working.
Sun opposed Saturn retrograde
You may have made a commitment to a romantic partner or child which you haven’t fulfilled, and if so now’s the time to uphold your obligation. If you don’t, you’ll likely face Saturn’s consequences once he turns direct later this year.
