Summer is here, Stargazers! The long, cold nights of winter are drifting further into the rearview mirror, and the night skies have a lot to offer in this glorious month of June and Gemini season.
Things kick off with Venus entering into Cancer on June 2. Mars enters Leo on June 11 for a hefty dose of charisma and energy (especially for you Fire signs). The real MVP of the month though is, of course, the Summer solstice on June 20. As with starting any new season, this is the perfect time to evaluate the material objects you’ve accumulated in the last year (or maybe just the stuff you treated yourself to during Taurus season). Welcome in the summer by exuding warmth and sunshine whenever you can, to whomever may need it.
