Buckle down, Bull. June can be a productive month—and typically is—as the Sun makes its yearly visit to Gemini and your work-focused second house through June 21. Since your sign is the natural ruler of this zodiac domain, you're in your industrious element. Don't squander this no-nonsense cycle! Clarify your budget and schedule, investing your resources in top-priority items first. Do a full "Konmari" decluttering of anything that's zapping your energy or scattering your focus. Money could flow in—and fast—once you bring integrity back to your life.
Aiding your efforts, on June 9, expansive Jupiter will end a four-month retrograde in Libra and your sixth house of wellness, organization and helpful people. Since February 6, you may have drifted (albeit enjoyably) away from healthy eating and good habits, possibly picking up one of your sign's many vices. That rosemary-dusted focaccia basket or mezcal margarita was simply too good to resist! Don't beat yourself up if you're not in tiptop shape. (This Jupiter transit is notorious for adding a little padding to the waistline.) Jupiter's direct (forward) turn will inspire you to resume moderation and even get a health kick underway. Since the red-spotted planet will remain in Libra until October 10, you could be a plant-based powerhouse or boot-camp ninja by the time fall rolls around.
Jupiter visits this part of your chart every 12 years, and it's been in Libra since September 9, 2016. During that time, changes to your health or work might have cropped up. If you've been dealing with a medical issue, Jupiter retrograde may have been helpful in pinpointing the source of your condition. Over the next four months, you could explore a mind-body connection or try a holistic/naturopathic protocol along with any doctor's orders. Feeling meh about your job? Pro tip: Jupiter rules travel and higher education. This summer is an ideal time to take a workshop, online course or life-enhancing vacation. Stretch as far out of your comfort zone as you can—Jupiter is the gambler of our solar system, and it will reward you for taking a calculated risk!
Since the sixth house rules the day-to-day tasks of your work, Jupiter retrograde may have found you struggling to concentrate or trying to find inspiration in your job. Maybe you had one too many projects or just a whopper of an assignment to muscle through. Reliable assistants or service providers could have gotten sloppy with their performance, or perhaps you got a big reminder from the universe that you need to delegate. Finding the right people to hand work over to hasn't been easy, but Jupiter's course correction might just introduce you to the right-hand person of your dreams.
That same day brings the year’s only Sagittarius full moon, which will light up your eighth house of intimacy and merging. A joint venture or close relationship could reach a turning point. Perhaps you’ll receive a big payout or make a major partnership move (an engagement, pregnancy or cohabitation...or a breakup?). On this decisive day, you’re either in or you’re out. There’s no grey area now. The people in your circle will need to get on board or sashay away!
Another reason to get Team Taurus on track? From June 16 to November 22, hazy Neptune makes its annual retrograde in Pisces and your eleventh house of group activity. If you've been too starry-eyed about a friendship or collaboration, prepare for a reality check. You have some amazing people in your circle, but also a few energy vampires. Taurus, you're a natural provider, and some people will lean heavily on your strength, creating a lopsided dynamic. Ultimately, it's your responsibility—not theirs—to regulate how much you give.
Codependent Neptune is infamous for blurring boundaries, but as it recedes into retrograde, you're able to cut through the fog and see people's true intentions. Some folks simply aren't able to offer as much as they take. That doesn't mean you should stop being kind and generous. Just manage your expectations and (theirs). No, things can't be 50/50 ALL the time, but if you're constantly making the effort or lending a listening ear, dig deeper into your own motives. Perhaps it makes you feel in control to have all the answers and be the "together" one. Do any of these five motives sound familiar?
Unfortunately, it's also exhausting to maintain disproportionate relationships. And while you think you're protecting your heart, you're actually hurting yourself. Compassionate Neptune urges you to be more vulnerable in your relationships. For all you know, people are unaware that you even need support! Instead of expecting them to read your mind, make clear requests and practice the art of receiving.
Luckily, you have the perfect opportunity to start speaking up. On June 21, the Sun moves into Cancer and your third house of communication. Start spreading the news and putting yourself out there, both in real time and on social media. With el Sol in this chatty zone, new kindred spirits could crop up anywhere from the grocery line to a brunch gathering. Be open to meeting new people, especially at local events. Find your tribe through Meetups, an afternoon workshop or by schmoozing at a party. Keep a notebook or recorder app handy. This intellectually alert cycle is also great for writing, learning and brainstorming. Browse the bookstore and catch up on your favorite blogs. A life-changing read could open your eyes to an important new perspective.
The June 23 Cancer new moon could plant the seeds for an exciting project or partnership that will unfold in the coming six months. Many astrologers advise writing down your intentions at each new moon, and you might try that, or perhaps a ritual, to bring yours to life. Conversations today can move from talk to action, so be sure to follow up with an email or formal meeting. Carry business cards and RSVP "yes" to events where you can network with a like-minded tribe. Since new moons herald fresh starts, you never know where an exciting talk might lead!
Just be careful once again not to spread yourself too thin. June 25 will feature a harsh square between stressful Mars in your communication house and overconfident Jupiter. This is a day when you WILL sweat the small stuff, losing sight of what's important. You could easily bite off more than you can chew or promise more than you can humanly deliver. Take extra pains to give clear instructions to coworkers or employees. And make sure YOU are fully briefed before diving into a project and wasting hours doing it wrong. Bickering with a friend or sibling could blow up into an ugly, finger-pointing melee. Since your stubborn sign likes to be right, you may dig your heels in when you KNOW you should just call a time-out. Don't let your ego take charge. Agree to disagree, or put this conversation in the parking lot until you both cool down.
Luckily, the next day brings a soothing trine between brash Mars and compassionate Neptune, helping you focus on a common agenda. Set your pride aside and apologize if you were harsh or judgmental. Give people the benefit of the doubt and at least hear them out. An enticing offer could arrive through email or a supportive mutual friend. Check your Inbox and social media accounts! This is also a great day to reach out via DM or a thoughtful message to someone you admire. Synergy could spark, leading to a bigger opportunity.
