See what the universe has in store for you according to the tarot.
With the Sun in Gemini before transitioning to Cancer and the full Moon in Sagittarius, June’s messages are overwhelmingly full of the emotional suit of Cups. Water, in general, is ever present in this reading. This tells us that, for many, June will be a month of navigating love, connection, and emotions with gentle adaptable ease. Go with the flow and think with your heart, but make sure you’re balancing it out with a little bit of logic. Don’t allow yourself to get carried away with the tides, but let the flood gates open when they need to. Try to channel any restless and unhelpful emotion into art, poetry, or something else creative that sparks joy.
Gemini season, the season of the twins, brings our relationships to the forefront. Especially the ones that are reflections of our inner selves. Embrace these connections with gratitude and appreciation rather than the codependency that Gemini tends to bring out. Gemini is quick witted and often very chatty. Pay attention to your words and know that they hold power. Use Gemini’s boost in communication to your advantage. Get out of the house for some healthy socialization! This season may also bring forward the people that irritate us the most – the people that ultimately remind us of ourselves. If this happens, take responsibly for your emotions and ask yourself if the things you don’t like about this person mirror the exact things you don’t like about yourself.
When the Sun transitions into Cancer on June 21, we see water making it’s presents known. The season of the crab has us feeling a little more sensitive than usual. It can often be a time for emotional release. Try to keep those emotions in check, as they may be subject to change at any given moment. You may find yourself being pulled into the emotional drama of others. It’s best to steer clear of this and worry about yourself. Inserting yourself in this drama won’t be productive for your well-being this month. Spend most of your free time at home and keep the work gossip to a minimum. If you begin to feel overwhelmed with negative self talk, remember that while our emotions and inner monologue deserve to be honored for what they are – they aren’t always based on solid facts. Forgive yourself for these feelings and thoughts. Do yourself a favor and invite your best friend over for day or night of self care.
With that fiery Sagittarius full moon on June 17th, we are prompted to look ahead for new future possibilities for growth. A Sagittarius full moon highlights the hidden yearning in our soul. The adventurer and truth seeker, Sagittarians are often free spirited, but deep people. This full moon will have you feeling the need to push against the boundaries that hold you back. Go on a small road trip on this day to feed your sense of adventure. Independent Sag will have you feeling like you need your alone time. This is also a good time to release any truths you may be holding back.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
The Moon often represents our shadow self. The inner fears that we ignore, but know are lurking within us. It shows us how our fear and anxiety are manifesting into our conscious life. A card that can often indicate post traumatic stress. Write down your fears and address them head on. Be honest with yourself so that you might work toward eliminating what holds you back. Your intuition also plays a large roll when The Moon appears. Does something seem off? Too good to be true? The Moon tells us to rid ourselves of illusions by seeking the truth. Pay close attention to the moon cycle this month for goal setting and emotional release. Ruled by the element of air, Aquarius coming together with the water powered Moon may feel like an emotional hurricane. Remember that you’ve got this. Also, know that this time is necessary for growth.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)
7 of Cups
Both Pisces and this card are ruled by water. The 7 of Cups is all about opportunity, decision, and illusion. When this card appears, it’s likely that we are being presented with a multitude of different directions that we can head in. All of which seem almost equally appealing. It can also mean that we’re being presented with one opportunity that seems to have a multitude of benefits. The 7 of Cups asks us to really do our research to make sure these opportunities and benefits are all they seem to be. This card also warns us against our own grandiose illusions. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. The grass is green where you water it. If you find yourself getting carried away with what could be, try to clear your head. If you find yourself with a ton of ideas, but no real action. This card tells you that it’s time to bring your ideas to life with a grounded and rational mind.
Aries (Mar.21 – Apr. 19)
9 of Cups
When your Aries fire combines with the water of the 9 of cups, it suggests dissatisfaction. What happens with water meets fire? You’re left with smoke. The 9 of cups is all about emotional contentment and fulfillment. It tells us to enjoy life and embrace our blessings. You may find yourself surrounded by material wealth, but still longing for something more. The 9 of Cups tells us to look inside ourselves to find happiness. Material wealth makes life easier, but gratitude makes it sweeter. Try expressing gratitude for everything you have and everything you are. If you find yourself hustling at the expense of your own mental and physical health, take breaks when you can. Don’t allow your Aries fire to burn out. The 9 of Cups also tells us to practice patience. So long as we work hard to manifest our goals, we’ll receive our wishes. We have no control over divine timing. Everything is unfolding just as it should. In the meantime, take care of yourself.
Taurus (Apr. 20 – May 20th)
4 of Cups
When earth and water come together what do we see? An island? A tsunami? Healthy growing plants? It’s up to you. The 4 of cups tells us that this is a much needed time of inner reflection for you, Taurus. You may be getting presented with a new alluring opportunity. You may be feeling uninterested in the life you’re currently living. You may also be feeling shut off and shut down from new paths worth exploring based off of past experiences. Either way, the 4 of cups tells us that you need to reach inside yourself to understand how you feel about what’s currently being offered to you. Taking time to do this will welcome in a period of growth and maturity rather than self sabotage. Allow the mutable water from the 4 of cups carve new rivers of thought, expression, and experience in your mind. If the feelings brought up by this inner reflection are tough, release those tears! They’ll water your soul and allow it to grow.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Earth and air are coming together when Gemini meets The World. A card of accomplishment, travel, new beginnings. It asks us to look back on your successes with honor and pride. Whether you’ve completed your goal or are just about to – look how far you’ve come! The World tells us that it’s time to cross the T’s, dot the I’s, and look forward to the next chapter. Make sure you’re staying focused all the way to the end. If delays pop up, meet them with patience. If the closure you need is more internal, you may need to let go of the past so that you can finally move on to bigger and better things. This is also a card of travel. This Earth/air combination also suggests that you have a flight to catch, Gemini. If not already planned, consider booking a trip to expand your world view. This might be just want you need to clear your head and move on.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Two of Cups
The Sun enters your sign on June 21. The Two of Cups tells us that this will be a time focused on unity and partnerships. There’s going to be a lot of love flowing and flowering around you, Cancer. Embrace it! This love may be romantic, platonic, or even business related, but it comes with true authenticity. Water meets water with the crab and the Two of Cups, so you might as well go with the flow. This card represents a soulful connection based on mutual attraction. This card also reminds us to practice self-love. The way we feel about ourselves is often very visible to others no matter the front we put on. The Two of Cups tells us that if we want to attract the type of connection that it has to offer, we have to love ourselves enough to see it in the first place. Remember, self love can sometimes mean tough love. Be truthful with yourself by addressing old patterns that you’re responsible for accepting into your life. We don’t want to continue those mistakes if we want healthy happy relationships.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Queen of Pentacles
When the fiery Leo meets the earthy Queen of Pentacles, you have the opportunity to create powerful energy. Think volcanoes and bonfires. While this combination can be destructive, they can thrive with balance. The Queen of Pentacles tells us that you’ve either got this *$%^ handled or can most certainly get it together! She’s the ultimate working parent, partner, or friend. Balancing her abilities of practicality and nourishment. This true kween provides both financial and emotion security for herself and her loved ones. She reminds us to find a balance between our work and home lives. This card also tells us to remain compassionate and understanding with those we’re in operations with. They, too, are just people trying their best. Above all else, The Queen of Pentacles knows that she’s got to love and take care of herself first.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
8 of Cups
Earthy Virgo meets the ever moving waters of the 8 of Cups. This combination teaches us how to move from our fixed position and walk away from things that no longer serve us. While the 8 of Cups is often a card representing disappointment, it also shows growth. If you’re feeling unfulfilled, it might be better to accept that it’s time to seek better experiences, relationships, or opportunities. This card asks us to address the issues we may be avoiding. You can only make the conscious effort to walk away by acknowledging that there’s a problem in the first place. Self honestly is important here. In order to find the fulfillment your heart is yearning for, you must make some hard decisions and get to know what it is that you really need. Forget your wants. What does your soul need, Virgo? It’s possible that you just need to cut your loses so you can move on.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
King of Cups
Airy Libra meets the steady waters of the King of Cups in this combination. This card is one of ultimate emotional maturity and regularity. When the King of Cups presents itself, it’s reminds us to remain level headed and not let our emotions get the best of us. This card is asking the Libra to really utilize their scales and make sure they’re balanced. By doing so, you’ll have the ability to lead yourself and others through emotional hardship and difficult situations. Keep that good head on your shoulders. You may have more people relying on you for your advice than you realize. Remember, you can’t properly take care of others until you take care of yourself. Confront your feelings so that they have less power over you. Practice some much needed compassion for yourself for once.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Water meets water when Death meets Scorpio. Easily the most misunderstood card in the tarot, Death more often means a figurative death than literal one. Death is the harbinger of change and transformations. It’s important for you to embrace the waves of chance when Death arrives. He doesn’t play around. An ending is coming and it’s making way for a new beginning. Change is positive and needed to grow into the many different people you’ll become in your life. It’s time to sever the ties that bind you to a life or situation that you know isn’t bringing you the happiness you need. Call Marie Kondo, because it’s time to clean house. Death also reminds us to let go of unhealthy habits and attachments. Remember, when one door closes another one opens. Death helps us let go of what doesn’t serve us and glow the &%* up. Utilize that Scorpio bravery and face it all head on. You’ll be glad you did.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Three of Swords
When the airy 3 of Swords combines with fiery Sagittarius, we have a wildfire of sorrow. Depression may be a heightened theme this month, Sagittarius. Whether caused by someone else or triggered mental illness, taking care of yourself in healthy ways is vital. Sometimes that means allowing ourselves to feel the pain and release the pain. Allow yourself to cry. You don’t have to always be carefree. In fact, ignoring your own pain may have led to this build up of emotions. Honor your feelings of grief, disappointment, or sorrow in constructive ways. Call a friend. Write in a journal. Try to pay close attention to your negative self talk. It’s only making it worse. You may also find yourself feeling this way because of the negative words of others. Remember that what other people think of you is none of your business. What they think of you likely has more to do with how they feel about themselves. Be nice to yourself this month, Sag.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
When earthy and balanced Capricorn meet fiery Strength, an eruption of energy is created. This card is all about the inner strength that comes with self confidence. Be strong, Cap. It’s all going to be okay. Strength reminds us to not only stand up when we need to – but also bite our tongue. Use your natural abilities of wisdom and determination to lead both yourself and others with kind persuasion. There’s no need for earth and fire to make lava. Use this elemental combination to keep your fire burning at a gentle roar. Sometimes it takes strength and courage to control our own raw emotion. You’ll want to do that this month, Capricorn. If your feeling low energy, what are some ways you can be courageous for yourself to change that? Remember that you’re a bad*$# persistent, babe. You’ve got this. You’re in total control.
