Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
June will be an important month for you because we are in eclipse season, and we will have three eclipses—two this month and one in early July. What will make this month so important to you is that the first eclipse, June 5, will fall in your opposite sign of Sagittarius at 16 degrees and will be a strong full moon lunar eclipse in your seventh house of serious, committed partnerships.
Full moon eclipses punctuate an ending, but this ending seems to bring twists and turns along with it that you will not expect. It might be an emotional time. You may be leaving a business partnership, a client, or a company you worked with closely, possibly in a joint venture. Or you might break up a romantic relationship or marriage, but if so, this was a long time coming, not something done impulsively.
Usually, an eclipse in the partnership house could indicate just the opposite, an engagement or marriage, but this seems less likely because this eclipse seems to have stressful elements—but only if you were born near June 5. If you do decide to get engaged or wed, with Neptune so strong at this eclipse, make sure you know all about your partner. You might want to slow down and get to know each other better in case you are rushing. Venus will be retrograde until June 24, so it is not an ideal time to wed.
Do your best to keep your schedule light, for this eclipse on June 5 has the Sun and Venus on one side of an imaginary seesaw, and the full moon on the other side of the seesaw, so these heavenly bodies will be in opposition. All three will send a harsh glance at Mars and Neptune, two planets orbiting together in Pisces at 16 degrees, precisely in hard angle to the full moon in Sagittarius at 16 degrees. There are various possibilities how this eclipse might affect you other than initiating a parting of ways from a long-time partner in love or business.
One way might be that a secret a partner in love or business has withheld from you will fly out suddenly, but in a casual, offhanded, or even accidental way. The information will be like a geyser forced up from under the ground. The Sun rules your writing and communications, and the moon rules your income, so if an incident should occur, it would involve a partner, money, and some sort of written or verbal communication you send out, or perhaps it will come to you. You may be a writer or editor, work in public relations, marketing, sales, do agent work, and so forth—if so, your work could also be part of the discussion.
Be careful about what you say and put in writing when eclipse season is in full swing like it is now. You need to be sure you don’t poke the hornet’s nest in social media or in other parts of life, for you can never predict how the eclipse will fall in the weeks after it has delivered its news. What you say or do, or what others say or do, will be magnified during eclipse season.
If you are leaving a marriage or a business partnership or joint venture, you may find out your partner has not been completely open and honest with you about assets. Sagittarius (the sign of this eclipse) is a sign that deals in ethics, justice, and the search for truth (versus what is imagined), so getting to the bottom of this secret could be one of your aims. Because both Mars and Neptune are in your house of career, I feel you are more likely thinking about a business collaborator or partner than a romantic partner or spouse, and as a result, be ready to end things. Still, I cannot see all the planets in your chart, so I have to add that conditionality.
Neptune is the planet of the arts, so in another manifestation of this eclipse, you may be coming to the end of a big project and also preparing to have the critics review it.
June might bring your best opportunities of the year for your career and could well turn out to be the most important month of 2020 for making impressive progress for your professional work.
Another way matters could turn out is that you may be finishing up an important, charitable event that brings you much publicity. Neptune is the planet of compassion, and if you work in a not-for-profit or for a company in any field that has been moved to help alleviate suffering brought on by the pandemic, you might join in. With Saturn in Aquarius, you will see the start of a trend that brings together ordinary people who are moved to help people who are having a hard time rather than waiting for the government to act (by 2021, the governments of the world won’t have the money to help—it will be up to each of us to pitch in).
Keep in mind that at the time of the June 5 eclipse, we’ll have most planets in what astrologers call mutable signs. Mutable signs are Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Virgo. We have the Sun and Venus in Gemini, the eclipsed moon in Sagittarius, and Mars and Neptune in Pisces. Mutable signs are flexible and highly adaptable.
Jupiter and Mercury will play leading roles in this eclipse. Jupiter will be conjunct Pluto and actually be friendly to Neptune and Mars, which is a big relief because the planets will be cooperating and not taking out their big guns at one another. Mercury is also friendly and will be harmonious to Uranus, planet of surprise, so if anyone owes you money, you may be stunned to see it delivered to you.
Overall, eclipses are enlightening because they expose a floodlight of information and truth. It is like a puzzle piece falls out of the sky, and when you place that one puzzle piece into the rest of the puzzle, the picture changes, and you have a eureka moment. Suddenly, an odd feeling or mystery is solved. Additionally, you will see yourself in a new light, and perhaps revel in your own independence.
It will be very important to keep your health strong now. Gemini’s weak point of the body is always the lungs, and this respiratory pandemic is on a mission to infect as many people as possible. Once you let down your guard and become vulnerable, it swoops in. This virus is not gone. Do not be reckless, cavalier, or have moments where you feel so strong you believe the virus cannot find you or touch you. It can. My job is to keep you healthy, so I would certainly ask you not to take risks now, not after you’ve done so well.
If your birthday falls on June 5, plus or minus five days, you will feel this lunar eclipse. If you have Gemini rising, a natal moon, or a major natal planet at 16 degrees (plus or minus five degrees) in Gemini, Pisces, Sagittarius, or Virgo, you, too, will feel this eclipse.
We have another eclipse, a new moon solar eclipse, on June 21 in Cancer at zero degrees lighting your financial second house. Zero degrees is considered very powerful, and I feel most Geminis will like the opportunity this June 21 eclipse will bring. It will likely offer news of an opportunity you can investigate to make money.
A new moon solar eclipse (June 21) usually generates a happier event than a full moon lunar eclipse (June 5) because solar eclipses bring starts, and lunar eclipses bring endings. I don’t know about you, but I get sentimental at endings. You will find that eclipses tend to be dramatic—they have weight and importance that normal new and full moons can’t match. It seems nothing ordinary happens at eclipse time—this is true even if you can’t see the truth of this immediately. You will understand this point later. Eclipses, if they touch the degrees of one or two planets in your natal chart, can mark major events in your lifetime.
Jupiter in your eighth house of other people’s money orbiting in conjunction with powerhouse Pluto will protect and encourage the growth of your finances. Both Jupiter and Pluto will be in friendly contact with Mars in your tenth house of fame and honors, indicating the money I feel you’ll see will be based on your fine performance.
It looks like the June 21 solar eclipse will bring a bundle of money as a one-time payment (not salary). At the same time, Venus, now in Gemini, albeit in retrograde, will receive golden beams from Saturn, which rules your eighth house of other people’s money—another signal that money is coming to you. You may owe taxes, so the money could come in and go out, but at least you will have the money you need. I think you will have more than enough—some for you to keep.
For the past two years, you’ve had eclipses in Cancer-Capricorn, and next month, on July 4-5, we have one more eclipse in that series, in Capricorn, which will also hit a financial house, your eighth house of other people’s money. It will mark the last eclipse in this series, which means your financial picture is about to stabilize.
It is not usual to have three eclipses in a row, each two weeks apart, but they happen whenever one family of eclipses is ending, and a new family is starting up. This month is a perfect example. We are finishing the long series of Cancer-Capricorn eclipses that brought changes and sometimes adjustments to your financial picture since July 2018. Now, we will move into Gemini-Sagittarius with great focus on how you see yourself, but also how you relate to associations and partnerships. The Gemini and Sagittarius eclipses will continue in 2020, 2021, and 2022, each approximately six months apart. The last one in this family of signs will arrive on May 2023.
An eclipse will often point out a vulnerability you have and show it to you so you can strengthen that situation. Sometimes, an eclipse will bring near-miraculous, happy news. An eclipse in your own sign, Gemini, which is coming November 30, will help you see yourself in a new light, and the December 14 eclipse in Sagittarius will put focus on important collaborations and partnerships. An eclipse will often clean up a situation and root out the debris you never knew was there, and it also will bring fresh opportunity that seems heaven sent.
If you would like to learn more about eclipses, I have written an essay that many readers find helpful. You might want to read it or re-read it now. It’s called All About Eclipses: A Guide for Coping with Them on my site, Astrology Zone. Click here: http://bit.ly/2ffYjjk
The same essay is on the premium version of my app with a shorter name, How to Deal with Eclipses, under the Life + Love section on the menu, and once inside, go to Susan’s Essays.
The name of my app is “Daily Horoscope Astrology Zone + More by Susan Miller” on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. The premium version costs $4.99 a month, and Apple and Google take 30% of the subscription as my retailer. (That’s standard and fair.) I have a free version too, which you certainly should get, for reading my monthly is a lot easier on the app. The free version does not have my extra essays, however. Just so you know, using an app to read an online site is more secure and sleeker and easier on the eyes than going on the Internet on Safari or other browser on your phone to read my report.
Now, let’s talk about Mars in Pisces, which officially makes June your most important month for professional success in 2020. Mars visits any one area of your chart for six weeks, so Mars will leave June 27 and not return for two years. You are in the process of setting the tone for a new two-year cycle in your career.
Professionally, your profile is high, and you will be able to garner help from influential people. If you are looking for a job or trying to generate new business, you will be successful, but you have to prepare to work hard. Having Mars in your tenth house of fame and honors might bring you positive publicity and a higher profile in your industry. Mars is moving with Neptune, the planet ruling the silver image, and these days, that image could be yours in the press, or if you are an actor, on TV or in the movies. No matter what you do for a living, I feel there will be a buzz about you in June.
You will do well to contact people you used to work with or those you had hoped to work with but for some reason didn’t—you have a good chance of regenerating that opportunity now. Why am I putting up an arrow to go back to past contacts rather than encourage you to develop new clients and associations? I will explain.
Mercury will be retrograde from June 17 to July 12, and you will feel Mercury’s impending slowdown much sooner than June 17. If you need a new computer or smartphone, get it today—hurry! The longer you wait, the unhappier you will be with your new electronic item. You are running out of time! If you have to sign papers, move those talks along too, as it would not be wise to make any promises during the retrograde. Keep a space of days from the date Mercury goes retrograde—and direct, too.
Venus is currently retrograde (until June 24), so starting a new relationship now would not be ideal. Be content to stay home and read (or write) a good book. You are the zodiac’s scribe after all, the most talented sign at writing. If you fear you will be cheated out of your time with Venus in Gemini, actually, no, you will have a decent length of time after Venus goes direct on June 24, for Venus will remain in Gemini until August 7.
I would say start dating after the eclipse of July 4-5, leaving a space of days for best luck. Eclipses kick up so much cosmic dust, it’s hard to see the road ahead. You will have to separate fact from fiction—not an easy task. We all tend to fill in the blanks when meeting someone new, but sometimes, that person doesn’t quite deserve those glowing attributes we assign them.
While on the topic of retrogrades, Neptune will go retrograde from June 22 to November 28. Neptune is the natural ruler of your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement and also the planet that happens to be transiting in that same house for years, giving Neptune double strength. It’s clear that Neptune holds sway over your career, but once any planet goes retrograde, you have to expect a slowdown in progress. That’s another reason to hit the ground running at the start of June if you want a new job or want to develop more clients for you own business.
Aside from Venus, Mercury, and Neptune retrograde, we have other planets retrograde, too:
Pluto, which turned on April 25 and will continue retrograding until October 4.
Jupiter turned retrograde on May 14 and will go direct on September 12
Saturn turned retrograde on May 10 and will go direct on September 28.
As you see, we have Mercury (about to retrograde), Venus (will turn direct on June 24), Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune (starting June 22) and Pluto retrograde, so that’s six out of eight planets. This is why I want you to go back to the past to look for people who always believed in you, who enjoyed working with you, and who admired your performance. Go back—revisit, reassess, readdress, reexamine, recontact, and have fun connecting. The people you call will be happy to hear from you. They are your best chance at finding career success. Is there someone influential you’ve overlooked? I believe so—think!
More than most signs, you are being applauded for your vision and creative approach to your work lately, for Mars has journeyed to the top of your chart, bringing you and your work greater than usual attention. June might bring your best opportunities of the year for your career and could well turn out to be the most important month of 2020 for making impressive progress for your professional work.
You may assume it will be impossible to get a new position or promotion because the pandemic has caused an avalanche of unemployment—and that’s true. Still, you are among the few who are holding all aces. Your ability to communicate clearly and effectively will be prized, so emphasize your skills along with other assets you’ve developed over time. All that you did 18 months ago will now come into play, and if you worked hard then, this will be the time of reward. That is not to say you won’t have competition—you will—and you might see this to be true near the lunar eclipse, June 5, in your opposite sign of Sagittarius.
If you have been dating a long time, you could be anxious to get married. However, Venus in Gemini is retrograde, so wait, for it’s not a favorable time—plan your wedding for 2021. Besides, it appears that you may be hesitant about the entire idea of promising your love forever, so you might be surer about how you feel until much after Venus goes direct, June 24. You have time to think through your feelings.
In case you needed another reason to be patient, Mercury will retrograde from June 17 to July 12. Mercury is your ruler, so it is likely you will face delays and do-overs during that phase. You may change your mind several times this month, and that’s okay because it shows you are thinking matters through thoroughly.
Later this year, Mars will retrograde too, from September 9 to November 13, so not only is Venus retrograde, indicating now would be a bad time to tie the knot, but Mars, Venus’ mythological lover, will soon be retrograde and emphasize it’s not a good time to wed. (Mars rules sex, and it becomes non-existent or completely dull in short time when Mars is retrograde.) Mars retrogrades every two years, so you have 2021 as a good year to plan. I list Mercury retrograde periods for each year until 2030 on the front page of my website. See the Table of Mercury Retrograde Dates on the lower-left side of the screen. I post that so you can plan.
The June 5 full moon lunar eclipse in Sagittarius might be a drain on your health, so take no chances. Keep up social distancing, eat nutritiously, and get enough sleep. If you do and are well rested, you will deal with decision-making more effectively.
The June 5 eclipse in Sagittarius will bring news regarding several parts of your life—your career, income, savings and expenses, and the possibility that a competitor might aim to impede your professional progress. However, the most important focus will be on your close, committed relationship with your spouse, serious live-in sweetheart, or important one-on-one collaborator in business. You may discover a piece of news that knocks you sideways that you will have to think about.
By a stroke of luck, on the June 5 eclipse, Mercury, your ruler, and Uranus, planet of innovation, will be in sync. This suggests the answer you come up with will be genius and likely to come out of left field, and because Mercury will soon retrograde, they will again form a positive aspect on June 30. You have several good surprises coming.
A fine financial opportunity tied to your career will likely surface after the new moon solar eclipse on June 21 appears, so keep alert. This is money you will earn, not win, but it could also come from the outside, such as through an insurance payout, commission due, severance, government stimulus program, court settlement, or other source. This eclipse is working with the one due next month, the July 4-5 lunar eclipse.
Be optimistic, for the June 21 new moon solar eclipse will have the power to bring a bonanza to you. Your reputation and career accomplishments of the past 18 months will be under discussion, and if you’ve worked hard, Jupiter and Pluto will see to it that you get substantial material rewards.
