The Planets This Month: June 2018

Following a rather heavy-going May, much of June’s planetary energy is light, creative and fun, so for many of us it’s a time to shake off the stress and to enjoy some of life’s pleasures instead. Gentle Venus kicks off proceedings on June 1st and 2nd with two lovely trines, first to Jupiter in Scorpio and then to Neptune in Pisces. This energy allows imagination to flow freely and brings a spiritual edge to everyday activity too. Venus switches to a darker mood on June 5th however, in opposition to Pluto – this is a day to be careful of dangerous liaisons, illicit love affairs and unhealthy obsessions.

Mid-June is a fun interlude with lots to offer for those who like to party. Mercury arrives in Cancer on June 12th, helping us to speak from the heart and to engage those around us with honesty and sincerity. The Gemini New Moon on June 13th is a flirtatious vibe, perfect for meeting new people, dating or attending special social events. On the same day, Venus sashays into Leo, sprinkling some showbiz glitter over affairs of the heart and reminding us all that it’s OK to be creative, generous and larger than life.

Neptune turns retrograde on June 18th, so this is a moment to watch out for fakery, scams and invasions of privacy. A combative air on June 21st comes courtesy of the Venus-Mars opposition, which stretches some relationships but adds spice to others. Once Mars turns retrograde on June 26th, however, there’s a pause in the energy. Instead of acting, think. It’s particularly important at this time to re-evaluate your approach to controversial or uncomfortable subjects. June does draw to a close on a more serious and sober note, given the Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th – but it will have been a fun ride for most of us along the way.
