Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
If you’re dating Taurus, the first week of June looks epic for your love life. And, if you’re not into romance or sex currently (or ever), you’ll have adventures with friends that bring you closer and more thankful than ever for your chosen family. Wild times continue with friends when Saturn, the rule maker of the zodiac, goes backward, so it’s okay to stay out late this weekend for the sake of dancing or whatever your favorite form of summer fun is. Then, when Neptune also goes retrograde, you get help stating boundaries, which may include needing to stay in and rest. Read your full June horoscope here, Taurus.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Don’t cry because your season ends this month, Gemini. Smile because when the sun enters Cancer, you start a welcome new cycle regarding a relationship. The next few weeks see you finding a new best friend or reaching new levels of intimacy (and pleasure) in a romantic partnership. June asks you to look at your boundaries but remember, boundaries aren’t walls. If you keep your emotional guard up too much, you may miss out on these opportunities to develop your bonds.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Make sure your friends know your favorite type of cake, Cancer, because your season begins this month. Have you picked out your birthday hair and makeup yet? Early June is ultra-glam and encourages you to experiment with beauty routines. You’re down to start celebrating when taskmaker Saturn goes retrograde, and by the time your season begins on Wednesday, June 21, you might be ready for a nap. The only question is, can you crawl out of your crab shell and let your friends shower you with love and attention? Read your full June horoscope here, Cancer.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
All the Leos who are partnered or dating can expect a rush of pleasure and intimacy in the first week of June. Those who are just focused on themselves right now can save the time and money spent on dates to relax into a cloud of self-care. When Saturn goes retrograde, you’re curious about exploring new avenues of sensuality, from beauty routines to sex toys. Your calendar gets busy once the sun enters Cancer. Don’t forget that cats can sleep for 18 hours a day, so it’s crucial that every Leo makes time for rest. Read your full June horoscope here, Leo.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
The full moon in Sagittarius brings power struggles, so opt to lay low during the first weekend of the month, Virgo. When Saturn retrogrades in your 7th House of Partnership, you see a relationship evolving. This could mean changing a romantic relationship format or growing closer to a platonic friend. All the stars ask is that you get honest with yourself regarding what you need to be your best self in all forms of love. Cancer season brings adventures you’ll remember for a lifetime, even if you finally see someone for their true colors. Read your full June horoscope here, Virgo.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
When Pluto dips back into industrious Capricorn, all the star signs are tasked with looking at their work/life balance. But because this transit lights up your 4th House of Home and Family, this especially rings true for you, Libra. Saturn goes retrograde, and the strict planet’s backward dance asks you to get serious about allowing enough time for rest. And, when Cancer season begins this month, you’re more charming than ever. The next few weeks see you making new friends and even forging valuable professional contacts. Read your full June horoscope here, Libra.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Keep your eye on your inbox around the full moon in Sagittarius, as you may receive that email you’ve been waiting for, Scorpio. June is an excellent month for networking or forging new social connections, as your confidence and charisma are sky-high. And, while Scorpios tend to be oversexualized, if there’s ever a time to play to type and get kinky, it’s after the strict planet Saturn begins its retrograde. June ends with Neptune also going retrograde, but this backward dance asks you to rest and catch up on sleep. Read your full June horoscope here, Scorpio.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
The first weekend of June brings a chaotic full moon in your sign, Sagittarius. Not everyone can handle your energy when amplified by this powerful phase of the moon, so, as a result, there may be bickering within your social circle. This lunation is best spent with a trusted lover or friend. When Pluto retrograde dips back into Capricorn, the stars ask you to look at how your work life could be affecting your mental health. But the vibe lightens up when Cancer season begins. Just don’t forget to get enough sleep, Sag. You are too busy to deal with burnout. Read your full June horoscope here, Sagittarius.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Pluto started a new generational cycle by leaving your sign for Aquarius back in March, Capricorn. Now, the transformative planet briefly dips back into your sign, asking you to check in with your wellness and make sure that you’re not overworked and spread too thin. Plus, your ruling planet, strict Saturn, goes retrograde this month, Capricorn. During its backward dance, the stars ask you to get creative, lower walls, and freestyle with your emotions. You can be a perfectionist in your communication. While this can make for excellent grammar, sometimes it’s okay to spontaneously gush over someone. But, when dreamy Neptune also goes retrograde at the end of the month, it’s best to be as direct as possible so nothing is lost in the planet’s fog. Read your full June horoscope here, Capricorn.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
During March, the transformative planet Pluto underwent a generational shift by leaving serious Capricorn and entering your sign, Aquarius. However, this month, Pluto is retrograde and briefly goes back to its ex by dipping back into Capricorn. It will return to your sign and stay put for roughly 19 years on January 20, 2024. You’re known as the humanitarian of the zodiac. However, while Pluto is back in Cap, you must make sure that you’re not taking advantage of anyone’s time or emotional energy. But June also brings plenty of lighthearted fun, especially once the sun enters Cancer (as long as you factor in time for sleeping). Read your full June horoscope here, Aquarius.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You escaped drama last month, and to continue the tradition in June, opt for sleep over all-nighters around the full moon in Sagittarius. When Pluto retrograde moves into Capricorn, the stars task you with ensuring you’re devoting enough time to your friends. Spend time with trusted friends who lift you up when strict Saturn goes retrograde. Then, when your ruling planet, Neptune, also begins its backward dance, be prepared to say goodbye to fairweather friends and grow closer to new, cooler people.
