June 2023 Astrological Overview

June begins on a hopeful note, as the full moon in Sagittarius takes place on June 3. Taking place in a mutable fire sign, June’s full moon (aka Strawberry Moon) seeks to broaden your horizons and allow you to envision what’s possible when you allow yourself to think bigger. Ruled by Jupiter, this lunation is about amplifying your dreams and aspirations, and illuminating your desire for liberation. Starting the month on an adventurous note is the perfect time to take risks. Sometimes life’s best moments happen outside of your comfort zone.

Saturn will station retrograde in Pisces on June 17, the same day the sun and moon conjoin in the socially curious sign of Gemini. This retrograde marks Saturn’s first in Pisces in about 30 years, marking a period of important revisions to your current boundaries and structures from now until Nov. 4. In Pisces, Saturn tends to struggle clearly defining where to draw the line; when retrograde, it can become even more difficult. As a result, this four-month period may be a time when you’re reconsidering the systems, rules, and structures that need to be in place in your Pisces-ruled house. Since a new moon will also take place on this day, it marks a moment of renewal for ideas, concepts, and opinions that could ultimately offer some assistance with the cloudiness and uncertainty that may also be present.

The sun shifts into the cardinal water sign of Cancer on June 21, marking the beginning of the summer solstice. As the moon-ruled sign of the zodiac, Cancer season is all about prioritizing your emotional needs, no matter how fleeting they may seem. This is a time to trust your gut and lead with feelings rather than rationality. Intuition tends to be stronger than ever this time of year, making it a fortunate time to make decisions that benefit from listening to your instincts. Allow yourself to feel things out. Your emotions are more trustworthy than you may think.
