"Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave and grow old wanting to get back to," wrote Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist John Edward Pearce. No matter what your age, Pisces, this month could be steeped in nostalgia and a desire to reconnect with your roots. For this, you can tip your hat to the Sun, which is making its annual sojourn through Gemini and your domestic fourth house until June 21. Let yourself linger a little longer with loved ones. Plan a visit, or at least a video chat, with relatives you've been missing. Women play an especially powerful role now. Connect with the ladies in your life!
Your bonds deepen even more on June 9, when expansive Jupiter ends a four-month retrograde slowdown in Libra and your intimate eighth house. Jupiter is making a 13-month trek through this intense zone of your chart from September 9, 2016, until October 10, 2017—a cycle that only comes around every 12 years. With abundant Jupiter here, the spotlight is on ALL the ways your life is entwined with another person or entity. From romance to finance, credit cards to cubicle space, we are always "sharing energy" with other people. Jupiter may have brought some exciting new opportunities to partner up, ones that pushed you to grow and stretch beyond your comfort zone. For some Pisces this meant an engagement, cohabitation or expanding your family. Since the eighth house rules long-term finances, you may have rolled the dice on a joint venture, real estate sale or an investment.
While Jupiter's been retrograde since February 6, some of these ambitious plans may have stalled or hit a bumpy patch. Perhaps you had second thoughts about a relationship or questioned someone's trustworthiness. A financial venture might have fizzled or demanded more due diligence. Optimistic Jupiter tempts us to leap without looking, and most of the time, the planetary patron of luck rewards our risk-taking. But Jupiter's U-turn was NOT the time to rush into anything binding. Now that you've had a pause to sort things out, you've got the next four months to go full speed ahead with your grand plans. A sexy and prosperous summer awaits!
June 9 also brings the year's only full moon in Sagittarius and your ambitious tenth house of career and success. A project you've been toiling away at since December 2016 could come together with a flourish now. This full moon could bring a promotion, a leadership opportunity or a long-overdue recognition for your hard work. Since full moons can bring turning points, you might leave one professional path to pursue an exciting new opportunity.
Just don't overload yourself, Pisces. With Jupiter in his reflective zone, you'll still crave privacy and need to tune out distractions. Deep-dive into a project that requires your uninterrupted focus. Go off the grid on vacation—the less cell phone reception, the better! This is also a powerful summer for emotional healing and spiritual work. In the fall, when Jupiter sails into your live-out-loud ninth house, you'll be ready to emerge into the public eye…with a vengeance!
Another reason to slip off the radar: From June 16 to November 22, your co-ruler Neptune makes its annual retrograde in Pisces. This could bring on a small identity crisis or a stunning moment of clarity around who you want to be in the world. Soul-searching may top your summer agenda, and you might be inspired to explore existential questions through art, therapy or a healing modality. If you've been hiding in the spiritual closet, come out! There's no shame in your woo-woo game, Pisces, so fly your crystal-collecting, altar-building, Tarot-pulling flag at full mast.
Once the Sun moves into Cancer and your flamboyant fifth house for a month on June 21, you'll turn up the dial on your self-expression. Craving a summer romance? The cosmos delivers! With el Sol in this passionate and flirty sector, turning heads could become your new hobby. Pump up the glamour and don't play TOO coy—if you're interested, let 'em know. The June 23 Cancer new moon kicks off a fresh six-month cycle for sexytime, and since the fifth house rules fertility, some Fish could soon have, er, a guppie in the oven. Your creativity is also at a vibrant high, so make time for artistic and DIY projects. And speak up! With assertive Mars also in Cancer from June 4 to July 20, the squeaky wheel gets ALL the premium-grade oil.
There's one day to apply filters, though, and that's June 25, when Mars provokes a heated battle with intense Jupiter. Lovers' quarrels could leave you both singed, especially if you broadcast the drama. A budding romance might need to stay under wraps. While impatient Mars wants to put all your business on the streets, Jupiter in this private zone says keep it between the sheets! Don't go changing your Facebook status just yet. A power struggle could ensue, and fights could break out over shared financial matters, especially if one of you is putting in more sweat equity or funding than the other. Your best bet? Lay a few cards on the table, then step back. Don't show your whole hand until someone's earned the right to see it.
The next day could be one for the history books, when Mars embraces enchanting Neptune (in Pisces), sharing their sultry superpowers in a golden trine. The stars hand you the megaphone, so express a heartfelt message with your trademark glamour and style. Who says you can't look like a million bucks while changing the world? And if you don't feel so rich on the inside, heed the words of fellow Pisces Elizabeth Taylor: "Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together." One well-shod step outside your doorstep will remind you that you haven't lost an ounce of your magic. In fact, your charms are ready to work overtime for you today, so make the most of them in every part of your life!
