There is a lot of focus on communication this month, with at various times throughout the month the Sun and the planets of love and communication working on this. After a lot of focus over recent months on establishing the right balance between your personal and relationship needs, this is where the relationship focus is. What you have is time to make this a priority, knowing that it is not until later in the month that new romantic developments will begin. A New Moon in your communication sector on 3rd June is a chance to commit to making communication a priority, whether you feel ready or not.
With Mercury, the planet of communication here until 5th June, he will be on hand to make this New Moon count. However, it is not until Venus, the planet of love returns on 9th June that your relationships will really start to benefit. For while the Sun and Mercury are offering communication support from the get go, their focus is on communication across the board. As the planet of love, Venus' focus is exclusively on giving your heart and your relationships a voice and here then for the rest of the month, this is when the real magic begins.
In the meantime, while the first planet to reach your romantic sector for the year doesn't return until 27th June, the Moon's visit from 7th June to 9th June will bring a taste of things to come. This makes it important to embrace these romantically charged lunar vibes and a sense of anticipation they will bring with them. While Mercury is only spending 15 days in your communication sector, once he returns to your romantic sector will spend almost two months working to give your heart a voice. Mercury's return on 27th June also opens the doors to the most romantically charged months of 2019.
Held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus was late to return to Taurus this year and this is paying dividends this month. For while your birthday month ended last month, as you move into June Venus, the planet of love is still in Taurus and she is working to make it count. It was a Full Moon in your relationship sector during Venus' early days in Taurus that has already given you a good sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. For as well as keeping the spirit of romance in play until leaving on 9th June, Venus is here to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations.
The Moon left your romantic sector just a few hours before Venus returned to Taurus last month and this month will return just a few hours before she leaves. With romantically charged lunar vibes bookending her time in Taurus. The Moon won't come full circle from last month's Full Moon in your relationship sector until after Venus leaves, with a second look at your relationship expectations able to wait. The Moon will return to your romantic sector on 9th June, just a few hours before Venus leaves on the same day. Here until 11th June, the Moon will guard against a sudden drop off in communication influence.
Meanwhile, the Moon will come full circle from last month's Full Moon in your relationship sector, from 13th June to 15th June. This is often when things that came to a head then have had a chance to settle and make sense, making these the most important days of the month for being emotionally plugged into your relationships or to your emotional responses to relationship matters, past or present. The Moon will return to find that Mars is still in your communication sector but also that Mercury, the planet of communication has returned. This time around the communication support is phenomenal.
To begin with, on both the romantic and relationship fronts the focus is exclusively on the past. You have Venus, the planet of love in a nostalgic part of your chart until 9th June, where she is taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane. Here Venus mixes fairy dust and romantic nostalgia together, in order to put rose coloured windows on the past, in an effort to both lay old ghosts to rest and to recapture the romantic spirit before new doors open. At the same time, both Ceres and Jupiter are now in their second full month in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, with this now well established.
On the relationship front, the focus will remain on the past, with Jupiter not turning direct until August. Yet it is during the later days of the month that your relationships get a real boost. Returning to your communication sector on 27th June Mercury, the planet of communication returns to bring the first real communication support since Jupiter's return to your relationship sector in November. Normally moving through in 14 to 15 days, Mercury's retrograde turn next month will keep him here for the majority of the next two months. Having Mercury on board will be an advantage during a Full Moon in your relationship sector, on 17th June.
In retrograde motion, next month will give the planet of communication a chance to work with Jupiter to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. In the meantime, a sense of romantic nostalgia is only in effect for a short time, so all the more reason to embrace this while you can. For on 9th June Venus, the planet of love will return to Gemini, where she will make it all about the future. Romantically charged lunar vibes in play from 11th June to 13th June will give this a boost. The only challenge you face, as more planets return to Gemini, is working to maintain a balance between your personal and relationship needs.
In a way, Mars' return to Cancer last month was a case of throwing the cat amongst the pigeons and as he is here for the whole of June and into early July, that will remain the case all month. Mars is an antagonist and as the warrior planet of the cosmos, he doesn't back down from a fight, perceived or otherwise. And the fight that Mars was aware of from the get go, was to push back from an overriding focus on your relationships. With the lunar nodes in Cancer and your relationship sector from November 2018 to May 2020, a balance between your personal and relationship needs is being policed all year.
The difference is that Mars doesn't tiptoe around this and rather than avoiding any balance issues, he creates opportunities to address this. This will be especially so when Mars moves into opposition with Saturn in your relationship sector on 14th/15th June and with Pluto there, from 19th June to 21st June. This will be the most challenging point of the month for you and your relationships, but this is a chance to get everything out in the open before your birthday month begins on 22nd June. Yet while this could create some relationship tension or challenges, Mercury's return on 5th June turns this into an opportunity for a breakthrough.
As the planet of communication, having Mercury in Cancer from 5th June to 27th June will put him here during this critical period. Even the best relationships might be put to the test, because with major new personal beginnings and a chance for personal growth developing, your relationships can no longer remain unbalanced. Communication will play a crucial role in maintaining a balance between your personal and relationship needs. The Moon, moving through your communication sector from 9th June to 11th June, will help with that as well. So too will romantically charged lunar vibes, in play from 13th June to 15th June.
With no planetary activity in your relationship sector, the focus remains more on matters of the heart and all things romantic, though this does make the Moon's visit more important. The Moon will make its only visit to your relationship sector this month from 20th June to 23rd June and in a month where it is all about matters of the heart, there is a need to book time to make these days a priority. Also, key to keeping your relationships on track is having the communication lines open. This makes the Moon's visit to your communication sector from 11th June to 13th June an important few days as well.
However, for the rest of the month it is all about matters of the heart, as lucky Jupiter spends his second full month in retrograde motion in your romantic sector. Not turning direct until August, Jupiter won't begin slowing down again until next month and is now far enough into his retrograde phase to have hit his stride, this is the pinnacle of this retrograde phase. Jupiter only returns to your romantic sector once every 12 years and as he will always spend his middle months in retrograde motion, this is your first chance in over a decade to take an extensive nostalgic trip down love's memory lane.
The Moon will not only move through your romantic sector from 15th June to 18th June, with romantically charged lunar vibes amplifying any romantic nostalgia, this will create a Full Moon. You will have a Full Moon in your romantic sector around this time every year, yet the Full Moon on 17th June is the first with lucky Jupiter on board in 12 years and where the doors are open to the past and second chances. There will be time in the lead up to this to embrace and ride romantically charged lunar vibes as they build towards this romantically charged Full Moon, on 17th June.
In a way, romantic forces are under attack this month, but they are more than capable of standing their ground. If anything, with Saturn and Pluto now in their second full month in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, a bit of pressure at times will guard against complacency or for matters of the heart becoming stalled. Saturn and Pluto are more than capable of standing up to whatever life throws at them and especially midmonth, there is a need to see any roadblocks as a chance to challenge old excuses. With the doors open to the past and second chances, this is an opportunity too good to ignore.
It helps that romantic forces have the support of Venus, the planet of love until she leaves an adventurous part of your chart on 9th June. Even then, a mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia will be so baked in that the remaining adventurous support is enough to keep this fuelled. If matters of the heart are under pressure at times, your relationships are experiencing the very opposite this month, with an abundance of support. In the lead up to his retrograde turn in your relationship sector on 22nd June, dreamy Neptune is both slowing down and gaining more and more support.
An alignment between Neptune and the North Node in your friendship sector, which had been building all year and finally came together last month, will remain tight into the early days of June. Yet with Mars in your friendship sector all month Mercury, the planet of communication from 5th June to 27th June and the Sun from 22nd June, support for friendship and relationship building will continue all month. Coming full circle from last month's Full Moon, the Moon's return to your communication sector from 13th June to 15th June will add to the communication support.
Things settle down on both the romantic and relationship fronts to what is the norm for this time of year. For you, the norm is no planetary activity on the romantic front at this time of year and the planets that are in your relationship sector for the long term are back on their own and more focused on the journey. It was the fact that Venus, the planet of love was held back by a retrograde phase last year that meant she was late to return and therefore late to. Venus finally left last month, allowing relationship matters to settle back.
With Chiron, the planet of healing in your relationship sector until 2027 and Eris, dwarf planet and warrior princess of the cosmos literally here for decades, it has now become more about the journey. However, not before spending months getting to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. The Moon's return to your relationship sector from 25th June to 28th June will be a valuable chance to check in. Even more important is the Moon's visit to your communication sector from 15th June to 18th June and the Full Moon this will create on 17th June.
With communication key to keeping your relationships on track, this is a Full Moon that can push through any communication barriers. In the meantime, with no planetary activity on the romantic front, the Moon's return to your romantic sector from 20th June to 23rd June is equally important. It is while these romantically charged lunar vibes are in play that you have a chance to tap into the spirit of romance and also to romantic desires and expectations Venus left you with when she left your romantic sector in late March.
While the Sun left your relationship sector last month, as is the case at this time every year, the month begins with Venus, the planet of love still here. Held back by a retrograde phase in 2018, Venus was late to arrive and is therefore late to leave and with the Sun been and gone, she is able to benefit from the relationship housekeeping already taken care of. While Mercury, the planet of communication was only here for 14 days and left the same day as the Sun, he has left you with the means to keep the communication lines open. Until she leaves on 9th June, Venus is on a mission to inject as much magic into your relationships as possible.
Venus will also be working to leave you with a confident sense of what you want from your relationships and this year, this matters. For unlike most years, when Venus leaves on 9th June she will have someone to hand the reins to. Uranus, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected returned to your relationship sector in early March and here now until 2026, your relationships are now in a whole new era , one where you don't just get support for a few months and you are then on your own. This is good news for all your relationships, past, present and future.
At the same time, there is something equally exciting developing on the romantic front. In the lead up to his retrograde turn in your romantic sector on 22nd June, dreamy Neptune has a stunning amount of support. That support is coming from Mars, who will spend the whole of June in an adventurous part of your chart and the other forces at play there. Mars will spend the whole month fuelling a passion for adventure, adding to a potent mix of romance, passion and adventure as the love gods prepare to open the doors to the past and second chances.
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of June in your relationship sector, the focus is always on your relationships at this time of year. However, there are two factors that make this year different to most and make this anything but just another run around the block. The first is that Mars wrapped up a nearly seven week visit just five days before the Sun and Mercury, the planet of communication returned last month. As the warrior planet of the cosmos, Mars has already fired things up, revealed any landmines and as he doesn't shy away from challenges, has left you with a clear sense of what you are fighting for.
The second factor that makes this anything but a rerun of other years, is that for the first time in 12 years you have Jupiter, in opposition in Sagittarius. This means that no planet can move through your relationship sector without moving into opposition and in the process highlight any balance issues between your personal and relationship needs. Here you have the benefit of hindsight to draw on, both because Mars has already flushed out any landmines and when you reflect back over recent years. With Saturn in Sagittarius from October 2014 to December 2017. This is something you experienced in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
It was in 2018 that you had a break from this, with Jupiter both a return to what has been familiar in the past, but with a chance to this time crack the code. Jupiter is the planet of luck, so wants you to achieve the right balance. Saturn is the hard taskmaster of the cosmos and he demanded that you continued to face challenges until you learned from them. Fortunately, you have Mercury, the planet of communication in your communication sector until 5th June and Venus, the planet of love from 9th June. This is a chance to enrich and empower your relationships.
While the conditions on the romantic and relationship fronts are very different, there are exciting developments on both fronts. On the romantic front, things are a lot less complicated and you are enjoying some bonus days. Late to return to your romantic sector because of a retrograde phase in 2018 Venus, the planet of love is therefore late to leave. The Sun and Mercury both left your romantic sector on 21st May, just days after Venus returned. Not due to leave until 9th June, Venus is enjoying a chance to extend the romantic influence that usually ends in May, into the first nine days of June.
However, with Uranus in the early months of a journey that won't end until 2026, Venus leaves behind a guardian for all things romantic. With no planets in opposition, so therefore no challenges, this is a pure bonus gift from the love gods. As Venus works through the laws of attraction and Uranus through the laws of synchronicity, they are both at work at the start of the month. Things are more complicated but just as exciting on the relationship front. Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos is spending the whole month in your relationship sector, firing things up.
Yet it is Mars opposition with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn midmonth that could exacerbate an ongoing policing of a need for balance between your personal and relationship needs. This might create some relationship tension midmonth but with Mercury, the planet of communication in your relationship sector from 5th June to 27th June, he's on hand to turn this into an opportunity for a breakthrough. It is the Sun's return on 22nd June that sets the wheels in motion for a total solar eclipse here early next month, with this month all about getting to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
The solar spotlight is always on matters of the heart and all things romantic at this time of year, but this year you have both a head start and an extension on the other side. Mars only left your romantic sector five days before the Sun returned to your romantic sector on 21st May, giving them a head start. When you have Mars having just spent nearly seven weeks fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit before the solar spotlight shifted onto matters of the heart, this is going to reveal the head start this has created.
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of June in your romantic sector, but it is rare to have this kind of a head start. Because Mercury returned on the same day and the planet of communication will be here until 5th June, you also have the support now to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. While you do have Jupiter in opposition all month, but as the planet of luck, this is more a chance to challenge old excuses and keep up the pressure to make the most of this romantic influence while it lasts. With Mercury leaving on 5th June and the Sun on 22nd June, this should be an end to all romantic focus for the year.
However, held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus is late to return and therefore late to leave. Venus will return on 9th June and is then here for the rest of the month, with the planet of love bringing the most romantically charged weeks of the year into play. In the meantime, while Mercury, the planet of communication won't return to your relationship sector until 27th June, this is the start of a parade of planetary support, through the middle months of the year.
Because the Sun will always return to your romantic sector on the solstice whether you are consciously aware of it or not, your heart knows no matter what, this is the month that at some point matters of the heart will have their turn. Except you not only don't have to wait, the lead up to a total solar eclipse in your romantic sector early next month, has already begun. That solar eclipse is only possible because the North Node has been here since last November, quietly drawing your heart's focus in the right direction, all the while preparing for next month's eclipse.
However, things became a lot more real when Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos returned last month and not leaving until the day before next month's eclipse, is here all month. This is Mars' first visit in nearly two years and the timing couldn't be better. As well as spending the whole of June fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit, Mars will also be working to expose landmines and barriers, real or imagined. Mars knows what next month's total solar eclipse is capable of, so is taking his job of clearing a path for what the love gods have planned seriously.
Mars will be joined by Mercury on 5th June, with the planet of communication working until leaving on 27th June to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. Yet this is not the last you will see of Mercury, for he will retrograde back in for a double dip visit early next month, just days after the solar eclipse. By the time the Sun returns on 22nd June, something that happens at this time every year, it will be to highlight the journey already underway. Venus, the planet of love is running late after a retrograde phase last year but will return in time to exploit next month's solar eclipse. In any other year, this would make June the most romantically charged month of the year, but this is just preparation for next month.
