Order in the Capricorn court! Early summer gets off to a healthy, can-do start as the Sun makes its annual sojourn through Gemini until June 21, heating up your systematic sixth house. Whether you're cutting back on sugar, finally building those bookshelves or calling the plumber for that leaky faucet, it's cleanup time at Capricorn HQ. Tackle a few practical and detailed projects that have piled up on your to-do list—then get outside! For earth-sign you, spending time in nature revives your soul. Swap your Netflix nights for evening bike rides. Meet friends for al fresco drinks and dinner instead of huddling, hygge-style, at your cozy local bar.
You'll definitely crave fresh air and sunshine starting June 9, when abundant Jupiter ends a four-month retrograde in Libra and your ambitious, career-driven tenth house. Professional matters take front-burner status, and you could have a full plate of projects, including ones that stalled since Jupiter kicked off its U-turn on February 6. Your workdays could stretch until the wee hours, but with inspiring Jupiter here, that should be time well spent. Pour yourself into ventures that raise your profile and boost you to influencer/VIP status.
To put this in perspective, Jupiter only visits this zone of your chart every 12 years, so don't squander it! The red-spotted planet is in Libra from September 9, 2016, to October 10, 2017, and it's been bringing major growth to your career since last fall. During that time, you may have risen to a leadership role, launched a business or dramatically changed your path. If you haven't—or if those plans got sidelined—now's your time to strike. For the next four months, lean ALL the way in and pursue your professional dreams.
Jupiter last visited Libra from September 2004 to September 2005. Reflect on what you were doing professionally (if anything) back then. That era may be coming to a close, priming you for a new 12-year chapter. Or maybe you're just ready for the next iteration. For example, if you've worked as a digital marketing planner, maybe you're ready to open your own consulting agency or step into an executive position. If the role you're in no longer fulfills you, Jupiter invites you to make a big, soul-driven change.
Lucky Jupiter might just drop an opportunity in your lap: an unexpected promotion, a chance to travel for work, a job offer with a sweet relocation package (Jupiter rules long-distance connections). A client in another country or time zone could hand you a big account, or you might contract, say, coders in Argentina or Poland to design your app idea. You could go back to school for a short certification stint that positions you in a higher earning bracket. In case you're curious, these are the best-paying jobs of 2017. As it turns out, most are in the health and technology sectors, but as a sign that skews practical, you might be intrigued by this list.
Stepping into your greatness might also require you to let something go. June 9 also brings the year’s only full moon in Sagittarius and your twelfth house of closure, healing and transitions. What (or whom) is energetically weighing you down? Disentangle yourself from any codependent or draining situations now. You might see someone’s true colors, which, while shocking, will certainly make it easy to choose a clear path going forward. Today could also bring a wave of forgiveness, possibly toward your father or a significant man. This full moon reminds you to add some soul to your goals. What path (career and otherwise) would be the most fulfilling to you on a deep level?
The message is clear, Capricorn: June is your time to FOCUS. And that might mean weeding out a few time-sucking energy vampires or draining commitments. From June 16 to November 22, boundary-blurring Neptune makes its annual retrograde in Pisces and your communicative third house. Are there people in your life who simply won't take no for an answer? Friends who take WAY more than they give? It's okay to step back from these relationships, even if it's temporary. Maybe hearing a dramatic friend's sordid tales distracted you from your own worries. Now that you're on a mission, you'll find the interruption more irritating than amusing. Don't feel guilty about establishing some distance from that one-too-many-margaritas friend who gets sloppy drunk at every party or the person who only calls you when they need advice. Since retrogrades rule the past, you might reconnect with a supportive old friend. This summer is a great time to take a class or return to a hobby you put on the back burner. Activities that use your hands—playing an instrument, knitting, DIY projects—can be especially soothing.
On June 21, the Sun moves into Cancer and your seventh house of partnerships, ramping up the need to be selective about the company you keep. Bring balance back to your closest bonds. A budding romance could turn serious, moving into official terrain. Maybe you'll be ready to sign on the dotted line for a joint business venture. The June 23 Cancer new moon is a perfect date for launching these discussions, as it kicks off a six-month cycle of growth. Between now and the Cancer full moon on January 1, 2018, pour some extra energy into the relationships that are mutually fulfilling.
With intense Mars also in Cancer from June 4 to July 20, you may need to hash out the terms of your union directly. There could be a heated discussion or two, but sometimes it takes an argument to really clear the air. When Mars butts heads with outspoken Jupiter on June 25, residual anger could flare up, especially around your long-term goals. Are you on the same page for the future? Your fast-paced work demands could be cutting into quality together-time, driving resentment to the breaking point.
Take a deep breath, because the next day, June 26, Mars will form a healing trine with compassionate Neptune, helping you talk through any hurt feelings or misunderstandings. Give people the benefit of the doubt—and if you're going through a tough time, reach out for support. People aren't mind readers, so if you don't tell them that you're struggling, how will they know? That said, if you get an intuitive hit that a friend could use a sturdy shoulder to lean on, get in touch. You could make a huge difference for someone just by listening without judgment.
