Gemini season is one of the most intense times of the year for you for multiple reasons, Virgo. It’s the sign at the highest point of your chart — this placement signifies what you’re best known for and the legacy that you will leave behind on the world. Thus, when the sun is in Gemini, your public presence becomes more prominent.
The sun meets the moon for a new moon in Gemini on Monday, June 3. This lunation gives you a refreshed perspective on what you are meant to do in this lifetime. However, the definition of this is flexible — there are dozens of recipes for blueberry pie, so to speak. Use this time to take the first step toward your major career goals.
You are in high demand this month, receiving invitations to parties as word of how brilliant you are starts to travel. Pay attention to the invites you’re getting when your planetary ruler, Mercury, enters Cancer on Tuesday, June 4. While Gemini is the part of your chart concerning public reputation, Cancer dominates the part of your chart that takes care of your community.
You can make yourself much more attractive to people in positions of authority as Venus, the planet of beauty, moves into Gemini on Saturday, June 8. You’re practically magnetic right now.
Check in on the progress of the work you’ve been doing on your career during the Sagittarius full moon on Monday, June 17. Full moons are a time of clear visibility, and this one, in particular, will allow you to see how far you’ve come. It’s an emotionally energetic moment, and you might experience some pretty overwhelming feelings (including nostalgia) as you reminisce about the road you’ve taken to get here.
You should always try to stay out of drama online, but especially when your planetary ruler, Mercury, meets aggressive Mars on Tuesday, June 18. This transit will find people in your social networks acting especially temperamental. You will likely benefit from taking out your aggression in a way that is intellectually stimulating rather than harmful, like writing in a journal. You can also take this time as a learning opportunity, and start to do some research on a project that you’ve been putting off for far too long.
You should be used to Mercury retrogrades by now, as they are simply a regular fact of astrological life. It’s time to get ready for next month’s retrograde, the shadow period, which begins on Thursday, June 20.
The planet of confusion, Neptune, begins its apparent retrograde on Friday, June 21, in your house of partnerships. Neptune is slowing down for retrograde all month, but in particular, you should pay attention to how your beliefs or ideals around relationships hit a wall on this date. This is the same day that Cancer season begins, highlighting your house of social networking.
Mercury enters Leo on Wednesday, June 26, which will put you in a quieter and more reserved state of mind while you’re out showing face and rubbing shoulders during Cancer season. You’ll find that keeping your opinions mostly to yourself will pay off. Something else that always pays off in the long run? Taking off your makeup at night. Kate Somerville’s Cold Cream Moisturizing Cleanser and Makeup Remover swipes away dirt and makeup at the same time, giving you more bang for your buck and leaving your skin soft as ever. Add it to your daily routine.
