This month is a rather amazing one for you Pisces, especially if you favor the mystical side of your existence (and you do). With Mercury retrograding all month long through your home and family sector, also corresponding to the psychological roots of your being, you will remain most effective by adopting an intuitional and an introspective mode of inquiry, looking into the heart of the matter at hand while trying to avoind applying too much abstract logic to your situation. Your family, dwelling, and your very identity is up for questioning as well as inner investigation in this topsy-turvy monthly cycle. As your traditional ruler, Jupiter, stations to retrograde motion in your sign on June 20th, matching Mercury’s movement through Gemini, you might feel an extra turn or two of the intuitional wheel. You have been considering, among other things, who you want to be when you grow up, as you enter your next stage, and the way that future plans, outer world presence, and your career choices interact with the deep dive to the inside of your psyche that you are currently engaged in.

Things are in a state of flux at the beginning of the month but this may feel like a comfortable mode for you. The New Moon in Taurus which occurred mid-May could have brought much-needed traction for your ideas and the momentum to set some of your plans in motion. Jupiter transiting in Pisces until the end of July could increase your propensity to say yes to new opportunities but you may also have to make a greater effort to stay on track. The propensity to scatter yourself could be an issue especially if you say yes to more than you can handle. Jupiter in your sign for the next eight weeks is an overall positive influence but with Gemini season in full swing, it could feel like a hectic time with a lot of various surprises coming out of the blue.
Mercury is retrograding through Gemini all month long, stationing to direct motion on the 22nd, and then continuing to recover its lost zodiacal longitude, considered its “retrograde shadow” period, until the first full week of July. With Mercury moving backward though the sector of your chart associated with home and family, and, additionally, your psychological roots, you are thinking long and hard about this important area of your life. You might find yourself re-doing your dwelling space in some way, or more metaphorically, your immediate family relationships or connections with your family of origin. In any case it will be a month of new realizations, the more so the more you can trust your intuition to tell you true about what is really going on for you in the depths of your psyche.
Venus enters Cancer on the 2nd coming into a supportive trine with Jupiter in Pisces which should help to slow down for a few days. You may feel a lack of clarity in matters of the heart while also experiencing stronger empathy or longings. Venus will be in Cancer until the end of the month emphasizing creativity, pleasure, romance, and your children if you have any.
Power struggles or intense passions are possible on the 4th and 5th when Mars in Cancer comes into an opposition with Pluto in Capricorn. You could meet resistance in the pursuits of your goals but you may also have tremendous motivation to succeed. It really depends on the outlets you have available to transform the willful energy of Mars and Pluto into the fuel needed to get things done.
On June 10th a Solar Eclipse takes place in the sign of Gemini while Mercury Retrograde conjunct the Sun. This is a powerful marker in the month that could highlight a situation at home or with your family and could bring into focus something you’ve been thinking about for a while. The Sun in Gemini squaring Neptune in Pisces on the 13th may find you oscillating between letting things flow or making an executive decision. You could feel like turning a blind eye on something that is bothering you but the issue may be persisting.
Saturn in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus all month long, exact for a second time on June 14th, highlighting a possible tension between your inner life and how you express yourself. There may be a disconnect between how you feel and how other people perceive you. The first of these exact squares occurred on February 17th and the final one will be on December 24th. Saturn in Aquarius may bring a new level of understanding in connection with your sense of autonomy and more extensively the ability you have to assert your personal boundaries with others. However, putting these realizations into practice could be more than half the battle.
A considerable change of pace occurs towards the 20th of June when Jupiter stations retrograde in Pisces just as Mercury stations direct in Gemini on the 22nd. Mercury wobbles a bit longer though, through to past the end of the month. Jupiter is concerned with broad concepts and long-term visions while Mercury’s specialty lies in quick synapses which links apparently separate elements together. You may be so busy that it could be preventing you from taking stock of your overall direction. While Jupiter remains in Pisces until the end of July, its station retrograde may force you to revise some of your goals.
On the late evening of the 20th, the Sun enters the sign of Cancer – inaugurating Summer in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun in the sign of Cancer should bring ease and a flow in the following weeks and increase your desire for pleasure. Your creative urges or your need for pleasure may get triggered as Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn and you may have to deal with intensifying desires in the days leading to the Full Moon.
On the 24th, the Full Moon culminates in the sign of Capricorn which for you highlights your community, your aspirations, and your place in the world. You may gain a lot from spending time with like-minded folks and participating in group activities. You may come to realize the important place your friends play in your life and the support that comes from your social circle.
