Flaming June is on the way and there’s lots to look forward to in the coming month. Here are the top 5 astrological events to take note of, so you can use the astrology to better your own life.

1. Jupiter conjunct North Node Taurus – June 2, 2023

As June begins, Jupiter and the karmic North Node are side-by-side in earth sign Taurus. This combination feels lucky because Jupiter rules luck and good fortune and the North Node is linked to your destiny, your path life.

You could say this is your guardian angel watching down on you. Listen out for signs and synchronicities to see what opens up in your life at the start of the month and make a wish.

Taurus is the star sign linked to money, also value. Jupiter’s the planet of truth and justice and this combination is about finding your true value, what really matters to you. This is calling you to slow down, to stop and take notice. If a new opportunity comes your way, it may well be worth following up.

2. Sagittarius Full Moon – June 4, 2023

During the Full Moon, the light of the moon is at its peak, shining a light on your current situation. Traditionally, a Full Moon is the time to trust your intuition, make important decisions and bring matters to completion or culmination. This is the start of the waning phase of the Moon cycle, an ideal time to release and let go of what’s no longer needed in your life. 

Sagittarius is the star sign of the traveller, explorer, philosopher and teacher. An ideal Full Moon weekend to take part in a workshop or travel somewhere new.

3. Venus enters Leo – June 5, 2023

In ancient times, the planet Venus was thought to be a star as she was so bright in the night sky. Recently, we’ve been witness to Venus’ beauty as she’s been so dominant in the evening sky (look to the west).

Venus enters Leo on June 5th where she will remain until October 9th, an unusually long time. This is because Venus turns retrograde from July 23rd to September 4th, not the best time to marry, have cosmetic surgery or make a major investment. This is because Venus rules love, beauty & money.

Yet, even with Venus’ retrograde phase, this remains a summer of love. This is because Leo is the star sign linked to celebration, play and good times. With Venus in Leo throughout June, embrace your inner goddess, honour the light, energy, warmth and vitality of the sun and do more of what you love.

4. Gemini New Moon – June 18, 2023 

A New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings. Traditionally, a New Moon is the time to launch a project, begin something new and start over. This is the waxing phase of the Moon cycle, an ideal time to set your intentions for the month ahead. Make a wish when you first catch sight of the crescent Moon, a couple of days after the New Moon date.

This New Moon falls in Gemini, the sign of communication, both the written and spoken word. Write down your intentions or voice them out loud. It would be an excellent New Moon phase to line up a meeting or interview, to launch a podcast or website or to have an important conversation.

5. Solstice – June 21, 2023

June 21st is the day of the Summer or Winter Solstice depending where you live, the longest or shortest day of the year. Traditionally, this day is in honour of the Sun, whether you witness sunrise at Stonehenge or burn fires in the Sun’s honour. Many of the world’s oldest monuments are built in alignment with the Sun on the day of the Solstice. 

This may be inquisitive Gemini’s month up until June 21st, but caring Cancer gets a look in once the Sun moves into Cancer and the first water sign of the zodiac on the day of the Solstice, June 21st. 

The Solstice takes place during the crescent Moon phase when the Moon is close to both Venus and Mars in Leo. Definitely worth star-gazing and honouring the Moon as well as the Sun.

Whatever else is happening in our world, the Sun and Moon continue to rise and set with regularity, a symbol of constancy and hope. Each one of us has our destiny intertwined with the cosmic universe – look to the planets for reassurance & guidance.
