Mercury opposite Saturn starts us off this week — and it really doesn’t want to let you off easy, I’m afraid. Mercury wants to move things along and Saturn is asking you to slow way down. The stop-and-go action of the day is enough to make you want to just go home and crawl back into bed. On top of that, Sunday’s energy is going to have you primed for negative thinking. This week is emotionally charged, and things could feel a bit volatile. The sun and Uranus are also making moves that are giving you a bit of jumpy energy. This makes it way too easy to let negative thoughts turn into paranoid action. I see you getting emotional and wanting to cut your own bangs in your bathroom Sunday night — don’t do it!
The best way to counter these effects is to slow down, be impeccable with your communication, and make choices about what you do and who you hang out with carefully. Sunday’s a good day to roll on a relaxing lavender essential oil, press play on a guided meditation in your headphones, and not respond to a text that gets under your skin. Oh — don’t text your ex, either. Wait until Monday, when we’re invited to take an active role in our own healing, to dig into your past and learn from it. Monday gives you the space to step out of a pain and grief cycle you’ve found yourself trapped in. The effects of systemic oppression or abuse won’t magically disappear, but you’ll feel the opportunity to find some release and relief. Something symbolic to mark moving on — a big haircut, a new tattoo, a powerful new lipstick shade — is a good call today.
If Monday is the day the sun shines a spotlight on our pain and asks us to imagine what justice could look like, then on Tuesday, Mercury gives us the energy and confidence to set a course for our actions. Tuesday brings excitement and ingenuity with a burst of romance, giving us something hopeful and exciting to look forward to. While the sensitivity from earlier in the week lingers, Tuesday’s more concerned with new possibilities.
The sun and Mercury join forces in Cancer on Wednesday for the summer solstice, bringing a flurry of energy to your home life. This is the day for moving furniture around, creating yourself a new vanity area, and inviting people over to toast to the sun! It’s a good time to be social if you’re looking to make some progress in your love life or do some professional networking. If you have a new project that you’re trying to launch or an idea you’d like to turn into a project, talk about it with friends on Wednesday.
The weekend brings Friday’s new moon and draws Venus close to Pluto, kicking off a month that’s bound to keep you busy examining your emotions — while also in the mood for romance. You’ll feel extra-sensual this weekend, so treat yourself to things that make you feel good in your body, whether that’s a massage, stretch session, or long bubble bath. The new moon sets the stage for long-term commitment, successful communication, and a stimulating intellectual match. Start something new. Whether that means rekindling your connection with someone you’re already seeing, diving into a new relationship, or simply updating your Bumble profile, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
June’s been a fast-paced month for you and this week is no different. You’re bursting at the seams with new ideas and the planets are giving you an ultra-strong push to make something of them. You’re the champ of turning ideas into action, and Uranus is in your sign, meaning that you’ve got energy to spare this week. This week’s warning, though, is to not become so action-oriented that you neglect yourself. Heed your emotions and boundaries, Aries — all of this action is going to have you feeling especially jumpy and a bit vulnerable. Use hydrating products infused with lavender to bring a bit of chill to your routine this week.
The week’s frenetic energy will get to you and could lead to conflict if you’re not careful and keep your temper in check, especially early in the week. You’ll be rewarded for your dedication and work ethic with energy to turn the wishes, dreams, and plans you’ve been nurturing into reality. You’ll receive clarity and guidance from your intuition and feel like you’re functioning from almost a psychic place. You’ve been feeling exceptionally social this month and this week those feelings will only intensify, especially on Wednesday. If you honor them, you’re bound to find a partner in crime who will bring some new energy to your work and help make it fun. Honor your desire for rest after the new moon this week — you’ve more than earned it.
This is a power week in your chart, Gemini, with the sun and Mercury showing you what needs to change and giving you the missive to get out and make it happen. This is especially true at the end of the week, when things take a turn for the better in your financial house. Now’s the time to make a plan to pay down your debt, save for a big goal, ask for a raise, sign up for a financial literacy class, or apply for a new job. Since you’re the great communicator of the zodiac, and your house of public recognition is also getting some play, a new opportunity to earn some cash is going to come from your ability to charm just about anyone.
Happy birthday, little crab! The sun is literally shining on you this week and it’s brought along Mars and Mercury, making this week one of your best all year. You’ve been relishing feeling on top of things this month, for the first time in awhile, and now your social life is about to be particularly bumping. Started from the bottom, now you’re here. This week could have you in your feelings a little bit, especially early in the week, but everything will come around mid-week and be completely resolved for the weekend. The new moon on Friday throws everything into overdrive — whatever you decide to focus on this week will prosper immensely, so choose wisely.
Last week put your patience to the test and drove you inwards toward introspection. This week’s giving you a bit of a break and letting you regroup. The perspective on your emotions that last week brought you will help you handle this week’s turbulent start. The full moon lands in your house of healing, which means that things are about to get pretty real for you, emotionally speaking. You’re more than equipped to handle it, though. Your birthday month will bring about the energy and spotlight you’re used to, so embrace the work of getting yourself feeling calm, confident, and ready to shine. As you’re shedding what no longer serves your soul.
You’ve been dealing with a month of obligations, Virgo, and your to-do list has been a mile long. In true Virgo fashion, you’ve handled it with a smile on your face and with everything color-coded. This meticulousness will pay off early in the week, so don’t let anyone tell you that you’re being too uptight. You do truly enjoy working and making things happen, but embrace the bit of a break that the new moon is ushering in — your world is going to get a lot more social starting this Friday. Make some plans, throw on a face mask, and get ready to let your hair down a little bit. You’ve more than earned it!
This week is going to feel a little bit abrasive to you, dear Libra, because you’re not quite where you want to be — yet. Your whole month has been building to the energy and push this week’s new moon brings to your chart, and I know you’re impatient to see your efforts come to fruition. The new moon, along with Mars and Mercury’s position in the house that rules your public achievements, brings that big career news you’ve been waiting for. There are also favorable things afoot in your chart when it comes to partnerships and working with others, so make sure to take advantage of that. Schedule any meetings or appointments as close to the new moon as possible for maximum efficacy and planetary support.
The stale, stalled energy you were feeling towards the end of last week is just about cleared and you’ll notice the improvement in your work this week. Favourable circumstances start this Sunday and continue to ramp up toward the new moon. This new moon could be really huge for you, especially if you embrace your instinct to get out of town. If you’ve been craving a trip, schedule it for this weekend! It can be as simple as a camping trip a couple hours away, but the space away from the routine and confines of your everyday life will be revitalizing. Regardless of how far you go, pick somewhere that inspires. Chances are a great idea will fall in your lap this weekend, and a fresh setting will give you the energy to plan its execution.
Last week was probably pretty emotionally taxing as you dealt with drama and conflict in your relationships, so get excited for the new harmony this week’s planets bring. The new moon is also going to highlight a positive financial development. Whether it’s new money coming in or you finally figuring out how to invest a recent infusion of cash, this Friday’s moon will help you figure it out. Be careful, though! Even though things are looking up this week, failing to heed Saturn’s call to be precise and cautious in communication could cause your relationship troubles to come back.
This week isn’t going to be the most fun for you, Capricorn, but if you hold it down and ride it out, it will definitely leave you better off. Early in the week, the focus is all on feelings and digging into past pain. As the industrious, power-through type, this is definitely not your favorite thing to do and you probably feel like you’ve already got your coping mechanisms down. What the planets are trying to tell you this week is that maybe you don’t. The new moon is showing an extra bit of favor toward your relationships, so lean on the people closest to you this week and be a bit more open than you would be normally. Discomfort leads to growth, and squaring things away emotionally will help you in literally every other realm, too.
This month has had you feeling a little more than out of your element. Cosmic volatility last week has had you trying not to rock the boat when, really, your knack for doing so is one of your best qualities! Freedom for creativity returns this week and will actually benefit you professionally. While this week does start of asking you to be a bit more on the careful side, this weekend’s new moon is going to have you feeling so much more yourself and give you a burst of energy on top of that. Look for opportunities to release it any way you can, especially after Tuesday, when the planets are favouring love, beauty, and creativity.
This week has a lot of elements that land firmly in your wheelhouse: emotions, beauty, and love. The sun landing in fellow water sign Cancer means that you’re feeling right at home. and last week’s turbulence feels like a distant memory. Well, almost. Chiron, the wounded healer, is still in your sign all week and it’s going to be bringing things up some things for you that might be tough to deal with. Instead of feeling overwhelmed and tempted to space out and get some distance, you’re going to have the tools to do something about it. The new moon helps clear away that emotional debris and gives you a good push toward romantic success. You’ll be feeling light, free, and ready for love. After the spring you had, Pisces, I’m truly thrilled for you! You’ll be in your absolute shiniest state this week.
