Hello there Cancer! Prepare yourself for some exciting conversations in June, as Mercury arrives in your sign on the 13th, with his incisive wit and versatile mind! Mundane chatter about everyday hum drum will not interest you now, you will seek others who are intelligent, humorous and different. You may feel more restless and changeable in opinion and mood under Mercury’s influence, and it will be harder to focus on tasks which require mental concentration. A wonderful chain of aspects between Mercury, Jupiter and Neptune between the 1st and 7th will enhance your creative skills and nudge you towards a new artistic or spiritual project. This is a time for using your unique talents to entertain or support others in some way. Working and communicating with children and young people will also be very beneficial at this time; your natural nurturing talents and spontaneity will encourage them to express themselves.
Love partnerships continue to weigh heavily on your mind this month, as Saturn and Pluto exert their potent influences on this part of your life. Pluto and Lilith are also conjunct here until the end of June, and this is a very passionate, determined aspect which could land you in hot water with a loved one, as your desire to be yourself at all costs puts their needs on hold. New relationships begun under this heady Pluto/Lilith interaction are likely to be obsessive, possessive and compulsive. Tread carefully, such passionate unions will seem exciting, but the feelings generated will not be healthy ones to base a new love on. Saturn looms over the full Moon of the 28th, pushing you to confront commitment issues in existing partnerships. If you are feeling oppressed by demanding partners, this is the time to release yourself from these burdens and think about yourself. The Sun opposing Saturn after the 23rd will help you to affirm your personal desires.
Neptune turns retrograde on the 19th in your house of learning and life experiences, offering you a chance to finally see the way forward if you have been stalling on your educational journey. Don’t settle for second best now, if you sense the time is right to retrain or enhance your education in some way, go for it. If your knowledge about a particular subject is shaky, you will no longer be able to get by without being exposed; it’s not the best of times therefore for throwing yourself into situations where you are required to have in depth knowledge, until you have done your homework. New friendships will arise when Mercury connects to Uranus between the 13th and 18th, and these friends will be quirky and original, taking you out of your comfort zone with their controversial opinions.
June’s new Moon affects your psychic side on the 13th; if life has been intense during the first fortnight of the month, this is the day to take some time out, before you become weighed down with other people’s stresses and problems. You could feel a sudden need to be alone now, which is perfectly natural and even preferable, in order that you can reset your energy levels. Health wise, watch out for minor health worries becoming more irritating than usual; problems with hormones, depression or anxiety could also be exacerbated when Neptune squares the Sun from the 2nd to 12th. The Sun and Mercury form an electric conjunction between the 3rd and 9th which will up your extra-sensory perception to its limit. Events are likely to arise now which will allow you to gain a much deeper insight into your spiritual motivations and priorities. Have a great month!
