Get ready to celebrate—it's Gemini time! The Sun is making its annual visit to your sign until June 21, feting your birthday season. This is your moment for grand debuts and prioritizing personal projects that have your unique stamp all over them. The May 25 Gemini new moon might have catalyzed quite a few fresh ideas. Use the first three weeks of June to explore those (and others) in more depth.
Your creative wheels really start spinning on June 9, when expansive Jupiter ends a four-month retrograde in Libra and your passionate, playful fifth house. Jupiter is traveling through this outspoken (and romantic!) zone of your chart from September 9, 2016, until October 10, 2017, blessing you with 13 months to live out loud. But your roar may have been muffled a bit since the red-spotted planet took a U-turn on February 6. Now you can barrel full steam ahead with a sizzling love affair or an artistic venture. Baby plans could ratchet up—ready or not—since the fifth house rules fertility. If you've been biting your tongue, speak up!
That same day brings the year’s only full moon in Sagittarius and your seventh house of committed relationships. Coupled with fast-moving Jupiter, you’ll be in high demand! A romantic situation that you thought was just for fun could move swiftly into official territory. Full moons can bring turning points, so if you’re not getting your needs met—and don’t think you ever will—this could be your cue to move on.
Are you on your path? From June 16 to November 22, soul searcher Neptune makes its annual retrograde U-turn in Pisces and your tenth house of career. Reflect on your long-term goals and professional trajectory. If you're feeling uncertain or disenchanted, this Neptune backspin can help you slow down and connect to your intuitive guidance. It's possible that you're ready for a bigger change, though you may simply crave more creativity in your daily work. Could that happen in your current role? Explore your emotions and take time for meditation, creative visualization and right-brain meanderings. Listen to music while you move through your tasks. This would be an excellent time to pick up Julia Cameron's self-study guide The Artist's Way. Hello, summer reading!
With compassionate Neptune in this contemplative pose, you may yearn for work that makes a difference. You don't HAVE to quit your corporate gig and go teach abroad (though you could…). Just look for ways you can be of service right here at home. This can happen after hours through volunteering or joining the board of a nonprofit that reflects your most cherished values. Put your consummate social skills to work and plan a benefit fundraiser. This is a great time to learn from a master or work with a coach in your field. Just know that Neptune is the planet of illusions. If an opportunity seems too good to be true, conduct your due diligence before you dive in!
Grounding energy arrives on June 21, when the Sun leaves your sign and moves into Cancer, activating your stable second house of work and money. Roll up your sleeves and get busy! This is your cue to take those grand ideas and start building them into something concrete. While others dash off on their summer vacations, you can use the next four weeks productively, making major headway on goals. The June 23 Cancer new moon could bring a job or moneymaking offer, along with fresh insights about your career path. Your confidence also gets a boost, and this surge in self-worth may coincide with an uptick in your net worth.
Don't let drama derail you just as you're finding your footing. On June 25, intense Mars, which is also in Cancer, forms a harsh square to overblown Jupiter in your outspoken fifth house. While it's important to express yourself, wearing your heart on your sleeve isn't always the best way to do it. Keep your ego in check and don't get sucked into a colleague's diva antics. Temper those knee-jerk reactions because you could come across as arrogant and disrespectful, even if you think you're just "speaking up for your beliefs."
Luckily, Mars will form a helpful trine to Neptune the next day, June 26, a much more favorable time to address work-related conflicts or pitch a visionary idea. An influential person could cross your path, possibly championing your work or introducing you to a decision maker. You'll be SO glad you didn't burn a bridge or get stuck in a low-vibe power struggle. Save your energy for creating and manifesting opportunities that are aligned with your highest path. Take a softer, compassionate touch if you're the one in charge. You'll win admirers and loyal fans by treating others with respect.
