Welcome to June 2024. Who's ready for Cancer season, a Capricorn full moon, and Saturn retrograde? Mercury comes home to Gemini, infusing a flirty confidence into all of our interactions. A full moon in the social sign of Gemini on Thursday, June 6 offers an opportunity to re-do a conversation that could have gone better. You'll have to remind yourself to practice patience when the fighter Mars moves into Taurus on Saturday, June 8. With the aggressive planet in the laid-back earth sign, you'll be asked to recognize results take time—a tough (but worthy) assignment.

When Venus enters Cancer, on Father’s Day, the mood is a little emotional, which is heightened when Mercury moves into Cancer as well. When Vesta, an astrologically significant asteroid associated with sacred sexuality, moves into bold Leo, everyone becomes a little bit more assured of themselves. Three-quarters of the way into the month, Cancer season begins, making everyone feel laid-back but perhaps a little bit nostalgic. An ambitious Capricorn full moon wakes you up and could lead to welcome career news but may also leave you feeling drained. The month starts to wrap up with strict Saturn going retrograde, meaning that cosmically, school is out, and it's time to enjoy the summer.

June 2024 Horoscope Overview

Welcome to June 2024, star signs. This month brings Cancer season (plus a witchy holiday to celebrate the Summer Solstice), an abundant full moon, and Saturn's retrograde. The first major astrological event of the month arrives on Monday, June 3, when the divine messenger Mercury enters its home sign Gemini. This transit is generally good for communication, making the first half of June ideal for any challenging conversations. But the vibe isn't heavy. It's witty, sharp, and perhaps a little bit flirty.

There’s a new moon in Gemini on Thursday, June 6, which, as the mysterious dark sky represents, is a time for fresh starts. If you feel like you could have handled a recent conversation better, whether that was a silly argument with friends, a work meeting, or something romantic, the Gemini new moon gives you a chance for a do-over. It's also a wonderful date to launch a creative project, whether you're getting into poetry, experimenting with cooking, or starting a band.

The fighter planet Mars enters earth sign Taurus on Saturday, June 8. With rash Mars in grounded Taurus, we might feel a little impatient, like little kids throwing temper tantrums and stomping our feet to get what we want. It's a transit that calls for patience. Remember that anything worthwhile takes time. You've probably made lots of progress that you never even congratulated yourself for.

When loving Venus enters water sign Cancer on Sunday, June 16, everyone might feel a bit sentimental. It makes sense that this day is Father’s Day. Call your dad, if that's applicable to you. If this day brings up weird feelings, remember that you're certainly not alone. Spend this weekend with friends and engage in self-soothing activities if old trauma or grief surfaces.

Chatty Mercury leaves Gemini and moves into Cancer on Monday, June 17. With divine Mercury in moody Cancer, you may find yourself feeling nostalgic and reminiscing about the past. While it's healthy to work through your trauma and integrate previous experiences into your life, getting bogged down in memories can prevent you from being fully present. Don't let old memories get in the way of you having an awesome summer.

Vesta, the astrologically significant asteroid associated with sacred sexuality, enters bold Leo on Wednesday, June 19, helping us feel confident when it comes to sex. Yes, that could mean feeling like a god in bed, but if you're happily abstinent or experiencing low libido, this alignment also helps you find well-deserved self-acceptance.

With the planet of discipline and restriction enjoying a backward dance, it's like school let out for summer. The teacher is out of office.

The sun moves into Cancer, kicking off Cancer season, on Thursday, June 20. The next few weeks are ideal for lounging around with friends and enjoying the summertime. But feelings of nostalgia may be amplified. The vibe is very Summertime Sadness, and yes, Lana is a Cancer. Thursday, June 20 is also the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, and the witchy holiday Litha (also known as Midsummer). Rock a flower crown and leave out sweet treats for the fairies who are said to enter the human realm around this date.

The sky goes bright with a full moon in ambitious Capricorn on Friday, June 21. While this lunation could bring welcome career news, many will also feel on edge and burnt out. You might want to circle this date in your calendar and opt for a chill weekend. And then, the following week, Capricorn's ruling planet, strict Saturn, goes retrograde in dreamy Pisces on Saturday, June 29. With the planet of discipline and restriction enjoying a backward dance, it's like school let out for summer. The teacher is out of the office. Let go of the rules and enjoy a laid-back and relaxing summer, with your biggest threat being nostalgia. Keep reading to learn how this directly impacts your sign.

Be on the lookout for welcome professional news during the full moon in ambitious Capricorn. Lastly, Saturn goes retrograde in Pisces, signaling a time for connecting with the divine and reflecting on your spiritual journey.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You're the sign of transformation, so while change can be daunting for everyone, you're actually quite good at it.

One of your ruling planets, fighter Mars, moves into your 7th House of Partnership this month. This brings passion to your relationships, but without keeping your cool, it could lead to fights. And while everyone thinks that summer is such a cute time of year, know that you might be a little bit prone to melancholia.
