Astrology Forecast for June 2024


June's energies are book-ended:  the first week offers the best energies of the month, with a very lovely Sun-Venus conjunction (a.k.a. Venus Starpoint). It opens the heart and is one of the best energies of the year for love, healing and acceptance.

Then, the Sun, Mercury and Venus, all in Gemini, take turns butting heads with Saturn and Neptune in Pisces.  It's the energy of confusion, lack of clarity, and frustrating obstacles and delays.

We will also feel the volatile energy of the Mars-Pluto square between June 9-11. It's a challenging energy that can bring clashes of will, escalating tempers, and anger management issues.  Many times I've noticed a violent event erupting somewhere in the world when this energy in active. 

And, Saturn will be moving very slowly, getting ready to turn retrograde on June 29.  It will spend the entire month at 18-19° Pisces. If your Sun, Moon, personal planets or angles (Ascendant, Descendant, MC or IC) are between 15-23° of Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius or Virgo, you may be dealing with some foundational matters in your life (jobs, relationships, home, responsibilities and commitments). 

Much calmer energies set in the last week of June however. Celestial peace is restored.

Here are some of the month's bigger energies to pay attention to: 

Jupiter-Pluto Trine: 

The month starts with a Jupiter-Pluto trine, which is one of the key highlights of the month. This energy tends to boost the economy, bringing financially beneficial developments. It's especially supportive of technology, communication, and transportation. 

We will feel this energy for as long as the planets stay close to one another: from mid-May to mid-June.  The energy will peak on June 2.

And, if this planetary transit hits your natal chart just right, it can bring an opportunity for wealth, increased power or influence, and future growth toward your higher purpose.

It's you if you have natal planets or angles (Ascendant, Descendant, IC or MC) between:

  • 28° Taurus - 4° Gemini.
  • 28° Virgo -  4° Libra.
  • 28° Capricorn - 4° Aquarius. 

Saturn Retrograde: June 29 - November 15 2024

When Saturn goes retrograde, it encourages us to consider how we view responsibility and commitment. Do we take on too much? Or do we shirk our share of responsibility? Are we all work and no play? Or the opposite? If there is a voice inside you that says “you should” – is it your own voice, and does the “should” have merit?  

So that's some general thoughts to ponder.  Saturn will be retrograde from June 29 to November 15 2024.

But, when Saturn connects with your natal chart, then you most certainly should pay attention!   Saturn will often connect with your natal planets three times: when it's direct, then again through its retrograde motion, and one more time when it turns direct and revisits the same degrees of the Zodiac. 

When it turns retrograde, it will revisit some of the degrees it's already visited in your natal chart in the past few months, giving you a chance to make any needed adjustments. 

A couple of years ago, I had an interesting case with a client who lost a lot of money on the stock market, on the investments she made just shortly before Saturn opposed her natal Sun.  Saturn turned retrograde several months later, and eventually opposed her natal Sun again.  The stock market went up and she was nearly back to her original investment.  Had she sold at that time, she would have recouped most of her money.  She didn't - and lost some more when Saturn turned direct and opposed her natal Sun for the third time. 

When Saturn squares or opposes your natal Sun, it usually brings a life lesson.  And, it gives you a chance to correct your course, when it turns retrograde. 

So, who should pay attention to this retrograde?

  • Pisces born March 1-11
  • Gemini born June 1-11
  • Virgo born September 3-13
  • Sagittarius born December 3-13

Or if you have natal planets or angles between 12-19° Pisces, Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius.

Now, let’s look at each week in detail.

Note that all the dates I mention are for Pacific to Eastern time.  The energies I mention peak on those dates, but we’ll feel them for 24-72 hours in advance.

I don't provide the times the Moon is void of course in my monthly forecasts - there is only so much I can cover in my monthly forecast! But, t it's an important astrological feature to pay attention to as well. There are many free web resources and apps out there.

June 1 - 9: 

The biggest and most positive energies of June arrive this week.  Jupiter trines Pluto, and the Sun makes a conjunction with Venus (a.k.a. Venus Star Point).  It's a great week for financial or business matters, and for romance -  especially after June 6. 

✨ June 2:  Jupiter trine Pluto, Mercury sextile Neptune

Jupiter (at 1° Gemini) will trine Pluto (at 1° Aquarius).  Generally, it's a very supportive energy for the economy, and we will feel it mid-May to mid-June. 

If this planetary transit hits your natal chart just right, it can bring an opportunity for wealth, increased power or influence, and future growth toward your higher purpose.

    With Mercury sextile Neptune, June 2 is also a good day for creative writing, and for marketing campaigns for charities. 

    ✨  June 3 5:38 a.m. to June 6 5:38 a.m. PDT:  Balsamic Moon

    This is one of those times in the Lunar Cycle when starting anything new is not to your advantage. 

    The Balsamic Moon is our time to tie up loose ends for the month, in preparation to plant seeds for new beginnings on the upcoming New Moon.  Get an extra hour of rest if you can.  Smudge your place to get rid of the unwanted energetic residue (we all accumulate it over time, from negative interactions or emotionally draining people in our environment). 

    And if you just can't sit still, declutter instead! It's an excellent time to purge your closet, organize your files, and clean your home.  

    ✨ June 3:  Mercury moves into Gemini and trines Pluto

    Mercury will stay in Gemini until June 17.  When Mercury is in Gemini, expect the communication pace to pick up! Watch out for mental overload. Try to shut off your electronic devices at least an hour before bedtime in the next few days. And not every text needs to be answered right away, either.

    Now, Mercury trine Pluto is quite lovely. It's a great day to start cognitive therapy, because big breakthroughs are possible!  The Moon is Balsamic today, so it will help you clear out deep-seated beliefs that no longer serve you. 

    It's also a great day to work with turquoise. Turquoise can help you find your inner voice and express your truth.  It's also great if you tend to get tongue-tied in important meetings at work!

    I used to charge a turquoise ring when Mercury made particularly good planetary connections (such as today), or on a New Moon in Gemini, and wear it when I needed to facilitate a meeting.  

    ✨  June 4: Mercury trine Jupiter; the Sun conjunct Venus

    Ahhh! How nice!  A good day for signing important contracts or publishing that important blog - but only if it's been in the works for a while.  The Moon is now Balsamic, which is not the greatest for NEW beginnings.

    And, a great day for relationship matters, especially if you're already hitched. If you're still single, the Moon is Balsamic today, so it's a good day to look for a short-term but satisfying fling - but, not for a long-term relationship.

    Now, if your birthday is 3 days before or after June 4, these lovely energies will get locked in your Solar Return chart, colouring your 12 months ahead.  Relationships will be highlighted for you big time. You may be interested in a Solar Return report. 

    ✨  June 6 5:38 a.m. PDT:  New Moon at 16° Gemini 

    This New Moon is THE day of the year to set intentions for improved communication or writing with ease; improved relationship with siblings or neighbours; increased social circle, and - for all of us anxious drivers out there - reduced stress when driving! 

    And, this year, the Sun and Moon are conjunct Venus on the day of this New Moon.  If you're single and ready for a relationship, set intentions for a happy, healthy relationship to come into your life! 

    You're not limited to what I mention here. Setting intentions for anything you want to bring into your life is a fair game on any New Moon! 

    ✨  June 7 5:41 a.m. to June 9 12:05 p.m. PDT.  A nice and looooong Opportunity Period! 

    Opportunity periods are the times when the planets align just right, aiding specific undertakings. This one, on a waxing Moon in Cancer, is great for connecting with your family members, expressing your emotions, and dealing with home or property matters. 

    ✨  June 8 : Venus square Saturn; Mars enters Taurus

    NOT a good day for a first date, approaching an interesting prospect on a dating site, or for major financial investments.

    In other news, Mars in Taurus can help you invest some energy into financial matters.  If you're a Taurus, you might feel a boost of energy (how nice).  Mars will stay in Taurus until July 21. 

    ✨  June 9: the Sun square Saturn

    NOT an auspicious energy.  Don't initiative anything new - it's likely to run into some speed bumps.

    If you feel down today, or let down by important people in your life, wait for a couple of days, and the energy will pass.

    June 10-16: 

    This is one of the grumpier weeks of the year. Stay away from angry people and dark places early in the week.  Invest your energy into building a healthy routine, or into organizing your home or office. 

    Don't schedule any difficult conversation this week, if you can. But, by the end of the week, we'll be heading into a nice long opportunity period - great for networking and spending a pleasant time with others.  How perfect for Father's Day!

    One interesting note about this week:  Saturday is one of those rare days completely devoid of any astrological transits, so life is literally what you make it! 

    ✨  June 11: Mars square Pluto

    Stay away from angry people and don't lash out yourself. Mars square Pluto is a volatile energy and can turn violent. 

    ✨  June 12-13: Waxing Moon in Virgo

    A great couple of days to make changes to your routine, especially if they are health-oriented.  If you're thinking of starting a new fitness routine or making a healthy change to your diet, now is the time.

    ✨  June 13: Mercury square Saturn

    June 12-13 are NOT a good time for signing important contracts, or for important presentations at work.  Save them for June 14! 

    ✨  June 14: the Sun conjunct Mercury; a nice and loooong Opportunity Period - from June 14 11:12 a.m. to June 16 11:05 p.m. PDT!

    A great day for signing contracts, networking, and all kinds of communication. And don't miss this nice and long Opportunity Period!  It's great for connecting and collaborating with others. 

    ✨  June 16:  Venus square Neptune.

    NOT a good day for meeting a new romantic prospect (reschedule that first date) or for financial matters.  It's difficult to see things clearly today. 

    But, how lovely that we have a relationship-oriented Opportunity Period on Father's Day!  Wonderful for connecting with your loved ones.


    June 17-23: 

    This week brings a number of dissonate aspects to Neptune. Keep your feet on the ground and don't fall prey to shady characters, or a more innocent version of tough Neptune connections: misunderstandings. 

    On the plus side, the Full Moon in Capricorn this week is great for career-oriented intentions.

    ✨ June 17: Venus and Mercury enter Cancer; Mercury conjunct Venus; Mercury square Neptune

    It's an action-packed day in the skies! Right before it moves into Cancer, Mercury squares Neptune. There is a high chance of misunderstandings and miscommunication today.  Be as clear as you can.  If in doubt, clarify the other person's intent. 

    Mercury and Venus both enter family-oriented Cancer, making it easier to express your emotions.  But, the crabby and clingy energy - the darker side of Cancer - also goes up a couple of notches. 

    Mercury will stay in Cancer until July 2; and Venus until July 11.

    ✨ June 20: The Sun square Neptune; the Sun enters Cancer.
    A low energy day.  Don't plan anything too ambitious 🙂 Sensitivity to alcohol and drugs (including prescription drugs) can be heightened.  Don't overdo.

    And just a couple of hours after it square Neptune, the Sun enters Cancer. Happy Birthday to all my Cancer readers! 

    ✨ June 21 6:08 p.m. PDT: Full Moon at 1° Capricorn, Mercury sextile Mars.

    This Full Moon, in career-oriented, ambitious Capricorn, is a great time to set intentions to balance work and family, to release fears of incompetence, especially at work, and the fear of getting older.

    And, with Mercury supported by Mars, it's also a good day for negotiations and work or business-related presentations.  

    June 24 - 30: 

    After two slightly challenging weeks, good vibes return once more.  The week starts with chill vibes, boosting spiritual, artistic and charitable pursuits.  If you're planning a hot date, schedule it for Wednesday or Thursday! 

    But, the biggest news of the week is Saturn turning retrograde... on the back burner, there is a simmering need to figure out if you've stepped up enough in life. Don't ignore commitments or responsibilities. It will just come back to bite you later. 

     June 25 11:08 p.m. PDT to June 29 1:52 a.m. PDT:   Waning Moon in Pisces

    It's a great couple of days for writers, artists, and those working with charities.

    And, even better, the planets align into an Opportunity Period! It lasts from June 27 7:57 a.m. to June 28 1:45 a.m. PDT. 

    Imagination and intuition are high, especially on June 27.  It's also a good couple of days for spiritual pursuits and emotional healing. 

    Book a Tarot reading. Work with crystals. Meditate. Or just relax and get an extra hour of sleep if you can! 💤

    ✨June 28:  Venus sextile Mars

    Ooh la la! A great day for a hot date 😉 Venus is in Cancer and Mars is in Taurus, so you might feel both passionate AND cuddly. 

    ✨ June 29: Saturn turns Retrograde; Mercury sextile Uranus

    Have a brainstorming session.  Watch for unexpected flashes of insight.

    So there you have it!  Have a wonderful June.
