June 2020 Scorpio Overview Horoscope

June is all about growth and building for you, a time to assess your “crops” and pinpoint how you can thrive, even now. Sound like an impossible mission? Think again. As a Scorpio, you’re one of the most regenerative signs of the zodiac, uniquely equipped to turn a pandemic into a huge transformation. After all, Scorpio’s highest state is symbolized by the phoenix rising from the ashes. And with two powerful eclipses touching down in your zones of money and risk-taking, luck could very well be on your side this June.
Eclipses arrive to shake up business as usual, and their impact can be felt for up to a month before and after their actual date. Every year, there are four to six eclipses coinciding with either a new moon or a full moon. Behaviorally, they act as major motivators, pushing us out of a wishy-washy state and into terrain far past our comfort zones.
While June’s eclipses will speed up the pace, there will still be obstacles to navigate. Four planets—Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto—are retrograde for nearly the whole month, a slowed-down position that can cause unforeseen delays. In the latter half of the month, communicator Mercury and hazy Neptune will join the retrograde brigade, further bottlenecking matters. But nothing will stop YOU, Scorpio!
This is all happening against the backdrop of the Sun in Gemini and your eighth house of intimacy, merging and privacy until June 20. Scorpio is the natural ruler of this zodiac zone, so you’ll be at your intense and charismatic best…at least, when you come out of your cocoon. And you may not emerge that often since you’ll be enjoying that under-the-radar time—yes, even after months of having it foisted upon you.
Gemini season helps you cultivate powerful alliances with a few key connections. Tighten your inner circle and focus on the handful of people closest to you. With Venus, the planet of love and harmony, retrograde in Gemini until June 25, you may need to work through some resentments and navigate the emotional fissures that have occurred as a result of quarantine stress. A business partnership may also be under strain, so use this time to get back on the same page.
On June 5, the Sagittarius lunar (full moon) eclipse shines its high beams into your second house of work and money. Get ready for a major career or moneymaking opportunity or a financial shift. Lunar eclipses often mark turning points—and their transitions come on abruptly. A job or client could be “eclipsed” away, clearing space for something that’s a better fit. Don’t cling to anything past its prime, especially out of fear.
This full moon is the first in a series of eclipses that will ripple across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis between now and December 2021. Major transformation is ahead with regards to money, work, property and investments—as well as your confidence and most intimate relationships. Both personal and professional alliances could change radically over the next 18 months—and that’s not necessarily a bad thing! Some Scorpios may split up, get married or make a business partnership official. You could see a deep alchemy of your closest bonds, the result of you valuing yourself and your contributions more. Learning how to share power—and handle it with grace—could be part of your eclipse curriculum. Where do you use force, manipulation or emotional blackmail to get things your way?
Starting June 20, you’ll move toward being more open and direct as the Sun starts a monthlong visit to Cancer and your expansive ninth house. As the summer solstice lets in the light, so too will you invite the illumination that comes from living your truth. Honor your desire for freedom and growth—and shake off any obligations that leave you feeling trapped.
The ninth house rules travel, and while vacation plans could still be up in the air or subject to Covid cancellations, you might actually have a chance to slip off somewhere restorative. But don’t rush to pack your suitcase TOO quickly, Scorpio. From June 18 to July 12, Mercury—the planet of technology, travel and communication—will be retrograde, a time when even the best-laid plans can be foiled. Be careful about ladling the truth serum in too heavy of a dose as well; your unfiltered feedback could create even MORE misunderstanding and strife. Choose your words with care!
Your desire to go big is amplified this year because on June 21, a potent solar (new moon) eclipse lands in Cancer, pushing you to really get your visionary ideas out there now…or to throw caution to the wind! One Scorpio we know is crafting plans to launch a savvy startup this summer; another put their home on the market after more than 20 years living in the same community.
This quest for freedom has been building since July 2018, when a two-year series of eclipses began on the Cancer/Capricorn axis, reshuffling the way you communicate, your friendships and where you live. Today marks the grand finale of that eclipse series—and you’ve come a long way, baby! Both long-distance and local matters have been on the horizon. From finding a new neighborhood to working with a far-flung client, you’ve been especially on the go. A sibling or work collaboration might have propelled this mobility.
Shifting fluidly between groups and locations isn’t always a Scorpio specialty—unless you can be incognito, coming and going as you please. Becoming a fixture of your community is probably NOT at the top of your bucket list. (Privacy, please!) But as a result of these eclipses, you’ve embraced being known by familiar faces while also opening up to new people you might not consider your “type.”
But it could be another month before this story totally wraps. This eclipse is the first of 2020’s two rare, back-to-back new moons in Cancer. The second, which isn’t an eclipse, arrives on July 20. Plans around travel, higher education or an entrepreneurial idea could take until then to gel.
Is your passion heating up…or cooling down? On June 23, foggy Neptune turns retrograde in Pisces and your fifth house of romance and creativity until November 28. During this annual five-month backspin, you might take a step back from a dramatic situation or even get a case of cold feet about a budding love affair. Had a little too much together time during the height of quarantine? Some extra breathing room could do you both a world of good. If you find yourself nitpicking or having stupid, passive-aggressive fights, step back from the petty squabbles and go do something fun for yourself—without an ounce of guilt! Couples could reconnect by returning to a nostalgic old spot (even if it’s not back in business yet) or spending time outdoors, preferably near water. If you like hot weather, find an open beach, plant yourself at safe social distance in the sand and bask in the heat.
Speaking of heat, on June 27, activator Mars will start an extended blaze through Aries and your sixth house of wellness and organization, staying through January 6. It’s time to whip Team Scorpio into shape—and to kick those self-sabotaging habits for once and for all. Be vigilant about protecting yourself from germs and keeping stress at bay. With rash Mars here, you could be prone to careless accidents or burning the candle at both ends. Slow down, Scorpio! Take the time to do things right and set up systems that help you stay organized for the long haul instead of just cleaning endless piles of junk, only to find them sprouting up somewhere else!
On June 30, the month ends with changes to your social circle and messaging. Expansive Jupiter and transformational Pluto make their second of 2020’s three rare conjunctions (meetups), which happens every 13 years. On April 4, June 30 and November 12, this potent duo unites in Capricorn and your third house of communication. In 2020, you’re taking a much deeper look at the way you express yourself, and the people you spend time around. From collaborators to kindred spirits, these eye-opening planetary meetups will have a major impact on Team Scorpio.
Got an idea for a podcast, book or media venture? The Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions can push your ideas forward. You could become the spokesperson for an important cause or a voice in your community. Both planets are retrograde this go-round, so you may hear from someone from your past with an opportunity to team up or share your message. Looking for a new place to call home? Your search for fresh terrain could see traction now, but it will likely take until the final Jupiter-Pluto conjunction on November 12 for everything to play out.
