Weekly horoscopes: June 1 – June 7

Even when a planet goes direct, falling out of retrograde, there is still a “shadow” period before and after it, which marks similar but less intense effects.

Happy Pride Month! The new moon occurred on Monday, which means the sun and moon were in Gemini. This means interesting things in terms of duality, especially because Gemini is the sign of the twins. Also, Mercury goes direct this week! Life is about to become a whole lot clearer, and opportunities for the upcoming weeks abound.

Aries (March 20 to April 19)

What are you doing for yourself? You’re likely investing in your future right now. This is great! However, consider how well you’re coping with the rest of your life. Do you see a therapist? Even when life is good, try therapy. We can always spend time learning about ourselves and bettering our understanding of our individual psyches.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Let music inspire you. Maybe you’ve forgotten your creative outlets in pursuit of more work or more activity, and that could lead to feeling burnout or some kind of slump. If that’s the case, try reintroducing music into your life. Taureans are sensual creatures. Let the sense of sound affect your mood for the better.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Happy birth season! If you feel like you’ve fled the nest and don’t know how to safely land, that’s OK. It is OK to struggle a little bit, or even a lot! How you get back up and fix the problem is what matters. You can’t always be right about everything. Fail a few times — you’ll enjoy your successes more.

Cancer (June 21 to July 21)

Your timidity is getting in the way of your happiness. What compels you to act shy? You could be acting this way in love or at work, but you’re definitely scared of something. If you’re worried about being underestimated, don’t underestimate yourself. This will just create a vicious cycle of unfulfillment in your life.

Leo (July 22 to Aug. 22)

As a fire sign, you’re bursting with personality, but it may be time to mellow out. If you live near a body of water, take a day when it’s nice out to enjoy the view or even take a dip. It will cool your passions and help you refocus on what you truly want. Water provides a soothing and meditative effect to anyone open to experiencing it.

Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

You’re halfway through the week. Keep focusing on those little excitements, especially if life is more of a drudgery than usual in this period of time. Let the anticipatory energy of the upcoming weekend fuel you! Also, remember that you have a lot to offer to the world. Don’t sell yourself short just because you’re feeling down.

Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Give yourself permission to be wild. Make bold choices that you normally wouldn’t make. It will likely give you a little thrill to do the unexpected, and such adventures (or shenanigans) may inspire you in the future. Don’t feel confined by indecisiveness or fear of consequence. Use this summer for metaphorical character building.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

How are you feeding your intelligence? Even though it’s summer, you shouldn’t let your education go by the wayside. Commit to doing at least one thing that helps fuel your mind. It could be a daily crossword, it could be volunteering at a tutoring place for high schoolers, but if it’s affordable and accessible, it’s at least worth a shot.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 20)

Don’t be scared by new things. Usually, you like to jump at new opportunities and you put your best foot forward in these situations. At this juncture at this moment in time, though, something terrifies you. It could be participating in something new or an upcoming commitment, but whatever is going on, know that you can face it!

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 19)

Do you feel like life is awkward right now? It’s as if there’s something not wrong, but not necessarily right about the world. If you’re motivated enough, you could help make a difference in whatever small ways are available to you in your community. Even if you still feel the funk, at least you will have done some good for the world.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 17)

You are not a sacrificial lamb. Don’t do things just because others expect you to. You are your own person and you deserve better than to be treated as a doormat. Don’t wait on others, laying down your life for compensation that will never get to you. People are rude, and oftentimes childish. Stand up for yourself and your needs.

Pisces (Feb. 18 to March 19)

Don’t keep yourself a secret. Like most others under a water sign, you likely present yourself softly and with a certain quietness about you. This is all well and good most of the time, but you might eventually find this to be unfulfilling. Your time to shine is on its way. When it comes, be ready to be loud and bold.
