Welcome to your June 2022 horoscope! And it's finally good news: this new month brings the challenging astrology of May to a halt (phew!). As we enter June, we are in Gemini season, a zodiac sign whose main talent is to embrace curiosity and change, which is exactly what we need right now.
On June 3, the second Mercury retrograde of 2022 ends, after three weeks of deep introspection. The first days of the month are ideal to go back to the notes and ideas that came to you during the retrograde. Begin putting any changes in motion after June 11, which is when Mercury begins to move at its normal speed (don't forget about that little thing called Mercury retroshade).
June 4 is another big day, because there will be another entrance to the list of planets in retrograde: Saturn. Although the first week of Saturn retrograde could bring a good deal of obstacles with authority figures, slowly but surely, these will begin to fade. Until October 22, Saturn will lose its power, giving some of us a well-deserved break from demanding and stressful situations.
The next big astrological event arrives on June 14, when the luminaries align to create this month’s full moon. Happening in philosophical Sagittarius, this lunation’s cosmic job is to challenge us to see and think about things from a different perspective. Heed the universe’s call—however, don’t make any rushed decisions around this time, as Neptune’s fog could make things confusing around this time.
A big shift in energy occurs when the Sun begins to illuminate the deep waters of Cancer on June 21, heralding the arrival of the Summer Solstice. This is a special moment in time, so make sure to spend it thinking about your goals for the coming quarter.
By the time this month’s new moon arrives on June 28, be ready to plant the seed of intentions. This lunation will light up our inner fire—and if we manage to stay realistic and grounded, we can use this lunar event as fuel to manifest our deepest dreams.
