Your calendar isn’t the only thing that can give you insights into the month ahead. In our monthly column, Workstrology, the expert astrologers at Sanctuary chart the energies, oppositions, and smart moves for your sign.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Under the new moon in your sign on June 3, consider the impressions you make with your personal style, and consider how you’d like to be viewed moving forward. It’s not just about dressing for the job you want; expressing yourself can help other people see you in that light before you’re officially instituted in that role. When Venus enters your sign on June 9, you’ll have increased grace and charm at your disposal. It’s a lovely time to connect with your colleagues and friends and demonstrate your personal energy. When it comes to moving up or moving on at work, avoid making decisions based on hazy or incomplete information as Neptune retrogrades in your career zone on June 21. Utilize Mercury’s and Mars’s combined impact on your financial zone from June 4 to June 27 to make smart, assertive money moves.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The collective energy in your workplace is in harmonious alignment with your sweet, protective, and nurturing vibe, Cancer, as forceful Mars and communicative Mercury spend most of June in your sign. When Cancer season (your season!) officially begins on June 21, your vitality is supercharged and the spotlight is on you! Take advantage of this energetic boost to your self-expression zone by speaking up in team meetings and taking bold steps toward your short-term career goals. It’s time to come out of your shell and go after what you want. The full moon in Sagittarius on June 17 illuminates efforts you make to fill your life with healthy and fulfilling habits. Take inventory of your successes and use this information to refine your vision for how you’d like to continue going forward. Place emphasis on personal, intellectual, and spiritual expansion as you draw up a plan for the next phase.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Vibrant Leo, for the better part of this month you’ll be focused on expanding your social network and wrapping up your solar cycle before your birthday season begins. A new moon in your collaboration zone on June 3 encourages you to develop a more streamlined way to communicate within your team. You’re tapped into the office dynamic; now you can help identify missing links and bottlenecks in your productivity. Come up with an inspired fix, and the result will pay off. On June 27, Mercury’s ingress into your sign gives you your first taste of the energetic bounty headed your way when Leo season finally arrives next month. With Mercury in your self-expression zone, you’ll be sharing your perspective with clarity and wit. Share your ideas and opinions, tell stories, and prepare to take the spotlight. You light up the world, Leo, so spread your abundant glow.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
What would you like to be recognized for, Virgo? The new moon in Gemini on June 3 offers a potent opportunity for you to set new intentions regarding your career path and public image. One way to shake up your legacy is to expand your network. New friends and associates will feel like a breath of fresh air, giving you the variety you need to move faster and more deftly in any direction you choose. Friends and colleagues can be wonderful teachers for you, and when you communicate your goals, they may also be able to help connect you to a more accomplished mentor in your field. Stay flexible and open to new influences, and keep your eye out for opportunities to strengthen the connection between yourself and others who share your interests.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This month, you’ll be focused on creating opportunities through travel, new experiences, and higher education. With Mars powering up your career zone, you’ll feel a push to action to further your professional plans. When Mercury enters your career zone on June 4, your efforts will be blessed with clearer thinking and sharp communication skills—this is the time to pitch ideas, write up proposals, or apply to a program that could take your career to the next level. On June 21, the Sun’s movement into your career zone will illuminate your contributions in the office, and you’ll receive recognition for your hard work. As Neptune retrogrades on the same day in your daily routines and schedule, you may find yourself daydreaming more than usual. Pay attention to these visions, Libra, and try to incorporate some of these details into your daily reality.
