June 2020 Capricorn Overview Horoscope

When you’re not sure which direction to take, sometimes it’s better to pause and do nothing until a clear signal arrives. In June, conserving your energy may be the best move since pieces of the puzzle will gradually fall into place. Luckily, wise Capricorns have a lifetime of experience playing this waiting game.
This month, both expansive Jupiter and transformational Pluto are in powered-down retrograde in YOUR sign—and will be until September/October, bringing an introspective air to your summer. And at the very end of June, they’ll make their second of three rare connections in Capricorn, which will bring a major moment of self-awareness. Your ruling planet, Saturn, is ALSO retrograde until September, along with harmonizer Venus until June 25. That alone is a good reason to take your time instead of rushing or cutting corners.
You’ll want to lean into your natural tenacity as June brings two scene-changing eclipses, which will shake up business as usual. Two more planets (Mercury and Neptune) turn retrograde in the second half of the month, causing you to rethink something that seemed like a sure bet. Luckily, your analytical powers are sharp this month, thanks to the Sun moving through Gemini and your orderly sixth house until June 20. This will help you pivot if needed and process any sudden changes.
Those could arrive as soon as June 5, when a Sagittarius lunar (full moon) eclipse lands in your twelfth house of closure, healing and transitions. Has a chapter of your life come to an end—or a sudden turning point? This is like a triple shot of mojo pushing you through that door, ready or not. There’s no more holding on to something that’s passed its prime, Capricorn. Eclipses sweep in with zero advance notice, and we must do their bidding. Surprise! This supercharged full moon in your imaginative twelfth house could put one of your creative or spiritual talents into the spotlight.
This is also the inaugural eclipse in a series that will ripple across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis between now and December 2021, activating your health and healing houses. Over the next 18 months, you could transform your well-being, work and processes. The players on Team Capricorn could be reshuffled, and you could make big shifts in the way you eat, exercise and manage time. You may learn new skills, possibly technical ones—the realm of the analytical Gemini-ruled sixth house—while also diving into a spiritual practice or honing your intuitive abilities (sparked by Sagittarius eclipses in your mystical twelfth).
The second half of the month puts the focus on your closest relationships. On June 20, as the summer solstice arrives, the Sun moves into Cancer and your partnership sector for month. And this is no ordinary Cancer season! The month’s second eclipse arrives in Cancer the next day (more on that in a moment) AND Mercury—the planet of communication, technology and travel—will be retrograde in Cancer from June 18 to July 12. Translation: All your closest connections will be up for major review.
With Mercury, the ruler of information and agreements, gone rogue, you’ll want to think twice before inking any deals. Get crystal-clear on what you’re signing up for. If a business or personal relationship doesn’t feel totally mutual, now’s your time to hash it out. Better to prolong negotiations than to miss a key detail. An important person from your past, maybe even an ex, could resurface now, too.
On June 21, the Cancer solar (new moon) eclipse sends fresh-start energy rippling through your zone of companions and commitments. Is it time to take a relationship to the next level, or to embark on an entirely new dynamic-duo adventure? Ready or not, that could be coming your way.
This is also the first in a rare double-header of Cancer new moons that 2020 is serving up. Normally there’s only one new moon per zodiac sign each year, but a second one will arrive on July 20, amplifying any developments that the eclipse ignites. Events sparked near the solstice could see another wave of action a month later. If you’re not QUITE sure whether to sign on the dotted line, you could make a firm decision one way or another then. You may need to wait a month for everything to fully play out, Capricorn.
In all fairness, this isn’t exactly breaking news. The June 21 event is the grand finale of an eclipse series that’s been touching down on the Cancer/Capricorn axis since July 2018, radically resetting the balance between “me” and “we.” Your closest relationships have undergone an extreme makeover, along with your personal identity.
And they’ll continue to do so because from June 23 to November 28, nebulous Neptune will make its annual five-month retrograde, backing through Pisces and your third house of communication and kindred spirits. Even platonic bonds and casual associations are up for questioning now. Quarantines are easing in many places, but you may OPT to remain “socially distant” from certain people over the summer and fall. Neptune’s reverse commute here could find you examining your mindset and the way you express yourself. Be careful not to promise more than you can realistically deliver or to lead people on with vague speech. Better to be precise about what you do and don’t know than to leave yourself with a messy cleanup later. When in doubt, talk it out.
Home could become a heat zone on June 27, when energizer Mars blazes into Aries and your domestic zone for an extended visit, staying until January 6. This activation could ignite a home-based business idea, and for Caps of the childbearing set, a possible new addition to la familia. Mars’ restless and stressful influence can give you a wicked case of cabin fever. Tensions may rise with relatives and roommates, so you’ll need to be aware of how much space, alone-time and privacy everyone needs. And during this cycle, Capricorn, you could need a lot of it!
Your independence becomes a central matter on June 30, when supersizer Jupiter and alchemical Pluto make their second of 2020’s three rare meetups—in YOUR sign. Jupiter and Pluto only unite every 13 years, and they haven’t come together in Capricorn since the 1700s! Their first meetup was on April 4 of this year, so look back to that date. Did you have a strong need for autonomy or get a spark of inspiration around a solo venture?
Pandemic conditions may have prevented you from acting on those inclinations, but at this June 30 conjunction, the window of opportunity could reopen. This time around, both planets are retrograde, which can slow down the action but also bring back projects from the past. Blow the dust off any back-burnered April endeavors and revisit them. Make any course corrections that will set you up for success this go-round. By the time the final Jupiter-Pluto alignment arrives on November 12, you’ll be ready to spread your wings and soar!
