Here’s what’s happening in astrology this week
The astrology shaping your weekly horoscopes for June 12-18.
Review your messaging as Mercury gets checked by stern Saturn
Practice the power of the pause this Thursday, June 15, as repressive Saturn in Pisces issues a gag order to motormouth Mercury in Gemini. It’s too easy to flood people with TMI, so take a breath in between statements to give people a chance to answer any questions that you’re firing off. Mercury in Gemini makes people prone to gossip, but playing fast and loose with the tea could find YOU steeped in hot water. Err heavily on the side of being polite and “appropriate,” even if it feels awkward or formal. Not sure what someone meant? Request further explanation before you jump to conclusions.
Saturn turns retrograde in Pisces on Saturday: A 4-month “meditation retreat” begins
Inspect to protect! Cosmic auditor Saturn begins its annual four-and-a-half month retrograde today, and for the first time since the mid ‘90s, it’s backing up through Pisces, the sign of soulful and subconscious healing. If you’ve gotten a little swept away in your fantasies, this retrograde could put the kibosh on your escapism and force you to deal with reality. (Annoying, but it’s for your own good.) This entire three-year Saturn cycle is optimal for cultivating your spiritual or artistic talents. During the retrograde, take time to master the basics or polish your core skills before hanging your shingle.
Scout kindred spirits with the Gemini new moon late Saturday into early Sunday
Planetary PSA from 2023’s collaborative new moon in Gemini (12:37AM EDT Sunday, June 18): Twinning is winning! Whether you’re looking for a workout buddy or a writing partner (or whatevs!), set your dial to “discovery mode.” Your ideal other half could be hiding in plain sight (oh, hello!) or hanging in the outskirts of your social group. That’s more incentive to get out and mingle. Since Gemini rules local activities, RSVP “yes” to your neighbor’s solstice BBQ, or rally friends for al fresco drinks on that hotel roof deck. The point is to circulate because this lunar lift is sure to connect you to kindred spirits.
Footnote: With boundary-blurring Neptune squaring this new moon, reserve judgment before declaring a new acquaintance your insta-BFF. You could be easily distracted today, too—all the more reason to team up with a clever colleague or have a wingperson to go out with in case you need someone to call you an Uber.
