Happy June, dear Capricorn. Last month, you survived a chaotic eclipse and ended the month craving intimacy and sweetness within your romantic relationships. Now, when the communication planet Mercury ends its retrograde and goes direct in Taurus on Friday, June 3, love flows even more smoothly. You’ve lost the Mercury retrograde induced urge to slide into a former flame’s DMs and find yourself grounded in the present, whether that’s savoring single life or giving your partner the attention they deserve.
When your ruling planet, strict Saturn, goes retrograde in Aquarius starting on Saturday, June 4, for roughly four and a half months, you’re asked to implement boundaries. As the disciplinarian of the zodiac yourself, Capricorn, you feel the effects of this retrograde more than others. The hardest part is that no one else can tell you how much time to take off work, what exes to cut off, or how to maintain your independence while enjoying long-term love. These are all boundaries that you must create on your own. So, don’t be surprised if you feel more reflective than average during Saturn retrograde, as you listen to your needs and then implement them.
When messenger Mercury enters its home sign of Gemini on Monday, June 13, you begin to rethink how you communicate. Like you ruling planet, you can be strict yourself. Even when you are head over heels in love, you often come off as severe and business-mannered, appearing too detached for love interests (especially water signs) that crave more romance. If you feel you’re not adequately expressing your feelings, consider reading up on attachment styles to learn about how others react in love or working with a therapist. Even if you appear cool as a cucumber, you are rich with feelings. Share them.
One day where you should be as selfish as possible is Tuesday, June 14. A dramatic full moon in loud Sagittarius brings a forecast of drama, so save the happy hour for another night. Instead, catch up on your favorite TV show, organize your home, or however your Capricorn heart likes to unwind. When Tuesday, June 21, brings the start of caring Cancer season (and the Summer Solstice, which is the longest day of the year), romance becomes the central theme in your life. For you, it’s the summer of love, Cancer. Depending on your relationship status, this could mean beach weddings, summer flings, or moving in with a partner. So make sure to enjoy the alone time when you can.
