Your June 2021 Horoscope

Here’s what’s written in the stars for you this month.

What’s in store for you in June? Gritty Pretty’s resident astrologer Emma Vidgen reveals all…

  

ARIES

It could feel like your mouth is moving but you’re speaking a foreign language—without subtitles—as Mercury retrograde messes with communications, especially the first 10 days of the month. Take extra care with your devices—do a password audit, back things up and make Grammarly your new best friend. The eclipse on the 10th marks a reset around self-expression, while the solstice (21 June) heralds a shift in focus towards home and family. On a broader scale, the collective angst will be a lot, especially from 11 June onwards. With Venus in your fourth house, prettying up your bedroom will be a welcome distraction from the craziness.

Tip: Redo your bedroom with new sheets, scents and lighting

TAURUS

If you had an official currency, what would it be? Diptyque candles? Natural wine? Organic sourdough? No, seriously, though, thinking about how you share your personal resources—both emotional and financial—is your most important homework during this Mercury retrograde. Where are you giving too much away? Where could you give more? The eclipse (10 June) marks a new chapter on this very topic. Remember this isn’t a month to action anything, just pause and notice what comes up. Escaping into a good book, will be a welcome comfort if things get bumpy, especially the second half of the month.

Tip: Stack your bedside high with books and fall in love with reading again

GEMINI

This month holds major potential for intuitive downloads. All you need to do to tap in is do less and “be” more. Easier said than done, especially for a Gemini in Gemini season. Your sixth sense, especially around work and matters of the heart will be bang-on so don’t be afraid to turn your Notes app into a live stream of random thoughts. Putting some extra cash aside for a rainy day might be a simple way to feel a sense of control, especially mid-month. Remember this twilight zone is temporary, so surrender and have faith you’ll feel a little less haywire once Mercury goes direct on 23 June.

Tip: Boost your sense of security by starting a rainy day fund

CANCER

When things get rough, you’re often the first person on speed dial. This is both flattering and exhausting, but this month it’s time to take a step back and distance yourself from other people’s chaos. Go to ground, book annual leave, pop your phone on Do Not Disturb—or all of the above. With all that extra time, do yourself a favour and invest in something that makes you feel special. If your health is feeling compromised, splurge on a 10-pack of PT sessions, or if you just need to chill, treat yourself to a facial, a massage, a pedi…whatever fills your cup. Replenishing your personal capital is essential homework for Cancerians while Venus is moving through your home sign. 

Tip: Treat yourself to some just-because pampering

LEO

Little known fact: Leos are some of the most reliable signs of the zodiac. So when friends bail, it can cut you to the core. This month crossed wires and cancelled plans are highly likely. How you react is up to you. An attitude of cool non-attachment is essential to navigating the surreal haze that is June. The first six months of this year may have already felt like three years for Leos, so take a minute to relax and loosen up. When things go awry, shake it off. Extra points if you can laugh about it! If you’re still feeling frustrated, cardio will help you let off steam, especially from 11 June onwards as Mars enters your home sign. 

Tip: Make cardio your go-to stress management

VIRGO

No one takes work more seriously than Virgo, but this month it’s time to acknowledge you can’t fix everything (despite your best efforts!). The first 10 days could be especially disorganised. The secret to shimmying through unscathed is to relinquish control and let your intuition guide you. Ask yourself not what you “should do” but what “feels” right. Virgo rules the gut, and you’ll almost always get a solid yes/no vibe if you can learn to quiet your mind and tune in. As tensions mount from 11 onwards (more on a collective scale, rather than personally) soothe frayed nerves with lots of girlfriend time.

Tip: Calm your nervous system with girlfriend time

LIBRA

Making sense of things is what you do best, but there are moments in life when you just don’t have all the facts in front of you. The first few weeks of June are one of those times. Resisting the urge to overthink pretty much everything this month will be your greatest challenge. Schedule self-care rituals—time in nature, meditation, whatever helps you get out of your head. With Venus in Cancer, finding camaraderie at work could also be a huge source of support. Look for ways to bring a sense of connection and meaning to your job. Look into joining a mentoring program, organising a social club or giving back to your team in some way. 

Tip: Look for ways to make work more meaningful

SCORPIO

A little bit of psychic chaos never scared a Scorpio. As productivity bottoms out most of the month, especially until 23 June, use the twilight zone to delve deep into your own mind. With Neptune’s influence over this Mercury retrograde, you’ve got a direct line to your subconscious. Therapeutic practices like journaling, inner child work, RTT hypnosis or even past life regression could bring big rewards under these surreal skies. The second half of June looks tense on a collective level, so make self-care a priority to help manage the uncertainty. Get out of your head and into your body with practices that combine self-care with spirituality.

Tip: Manage over-thinking with yoga, meditation and reiki

SAGITTARIUS

We become a combination of the people you spend the most time with, and this month there’ll be major introspection about your top five. Lovers, best friends, business partners – who are the people who define you? What do they say about you? Are you on the same page? These are just a few of the questions up for consideration. The eclipse (10 June) marks the beginning of a new chapter and the opportunity for deep, soulful conversations, but as Venus moves through Cancer (2 – 27 June) don’t be weirded out if you feel like you need some space. A little solitude could be just the thing to clear your mind and ground you in the midst of this month’s big feelings.

Tip: Make time for D&Ms with your partner or best mate

CAPRICORN

As Mercury goes retrograde in the part of your chart ruling your daily routine, the propensity for missed appointments, traffic jams and unexpected delays is major. It’s not the end of the world, but for a sign who likes things organised and on track, it could feel quite unsettling. Building in extra time to get things done and making sure you aren’t leaving things until the last minute will help you navigate the confusion. Much will be beyond your control, so make downtime with your favourite people a priority to help process the frustration. With Venus in Cancer, the skies are primed for romantic nights in. Escape the irritation of day-to-day mix-ups by scheduling lots of cosy nights in with Netflix and your main squeeze.

Tip: Dissolve stress with plenty of Netflix and quiet nights in

AQUARIUS

Creativity is the salve your soul needs to navigate the murky waters this month. It’s a heady mix of confusion and skittishness that could leave Aquarians feeling burned out. Pick up a long-forgotten instrument, commit to The Artist’s Way or do a dance class rather than your regular brunch catch-up on the weekend. Making space for something artistic will be a welcome distraction as pressure builds in the back half of the month. Fur babies will also be a big comfort, so make walkies (or cat snuggles) a part of your daily routine. If you don’t have a pet, consider volunteering as a short-term foster parent or meet your dog-mama mates at the off-lead park.

Tip: Prioritise quality time with your favourite fur baby

PISCES

No sign will manage the ethereal haze of Mercury retrograde as gracefully as Pisces people. Your biggest bummer will be avoiding the psychic energy of other signs who aren’t coping so well. Brace yourself for a little bit of empathetic stress and focus your energies on your home life. It’s a perfect time for deep and meaningful conversations with family, especially your parents. Make it your mission to learn something new about them—their hopes, dreams or childhood. As the collective pressure builds from 11 June onwards, losing yourself in nostalgia will be a huge comfort. Revisit your favourite childhood movies, organise old photos or crank up your favourite high school playlist.

Tip: Decompress with a throwback playlist 

Hot tip: try reading these horoscopes for your rising sign as well as your sun sign. You can check the Co-Star app or have your charts read by an astrologist to see what your rising sign is.
