Feeling Tangled Up? June 2022 Astrology Should Help Detangle and Defrizz
I don’t know about you, but May was a wild month full of overwhelming energies. I’ve just uprooted my life entirely, moving from East Coast to West, planning a mini-wedding, and preparing to start a new role. All while watching the New Mexico fires reach record sizes, reading in horror about the Uvalde mass shooting (and the 10+ mass shootings that happened on Memorial Day alone), and tracking the advancing war in Ukraine.
It was a month of contradictions. Of holding the threads of multiple realties and trying to weave them into some semblance of order and rationality. Though, in reality, there is little rationality in much of this.
As we move into June, the threads feel less chaotic and more aligned. The month feels like a plateau after a winding mountain drive. Though there will be a major peak (bookended by two deep valleys) mid-month.

June Astrological Topography
As you can see, this month is much more stable, minus the pretty conspicuous valleys and peaks in the middle of the road there. This will give us a chance to get back on track, get our heads on straight, and find new ways to blaze a more sustainable (and healthy) path into the future.
And if we look closer, planet by planet, we can see how Venus is sending us on a little bit of a rollercoaster ride, though much of it for our benefit. She’ll be helping us find love and pleasure in the simple things…mostly. Sometimes she’ll lose her head and become insatiable, overindulgent, and probably jealous. Basically, that feels to me like eating too much junk food and then wondering why I have indigestion.
The Highs and Lows of June 2022 Astrology
The Best Days: June 20th, June 21st, and June 29th. Many of the planets are in places they feel happy and seen, giving you a boost as a result. Plus, Venus gets empowered by Pluto on 6/21, and there’s a ton of astrological activity on 6/29 that makes it feel especially activated. See below for more details, or subscribe to my free calendar to keep up with the movement of the planets.
The Worst Day: June 12th. With the moon in moody Scorpio and Venus Conjunct Uranus, we will be really feeling the emo and angsty on this day. It feels like a call to look deeply at the way in which we engage with (and treat) our earth. We may be noticing our own faults, which is always uncomfortable.
June Astrology, Transit by Transit
6/1 - 6/4: Mercury in Taurus Square Saturn: Thinking and rethinking when faced with our collective systems and limitations.
6/1 - 6/5: Mercury in Taurus Sextile Neptune: Intuitive undercurrents give rise to new ideas and conversations
6/9 - 6/11: Mercury in Taurus Trine Pluto: The inevitable cycle of life and our transitory nature sheds light on the power of small words of kindness and gratitude.
6/11 - 6/12: Venus Conjunct Uranus: Earthy surprises abound. Our indulgences may be confronted by the reality of our Earth in this present moment. How can we live with our planet in a more reciprocal relationship?
6/13 - 7/4: Mercury in Gemini: Getting your thoughts back in order, and at a more manageable pace, after an overwhelming Mercury Retrograde. A fresh start for you mind, which has been tilled and weeded for the past month.
6/14: Full Moon in Sagittarius: Embracing the culmination of an intellectual (or material) adventure. What have you learned and embodied over the past six months, and how has that lesson changed you?
6/14 - 6/15: Venus Conjunct the North Node: An insatiable need for the pleasures of life. Overconsumption, almost out of fear that we'll never be able to indulge in this way again. The overlap of pleasure and scarcity.
6/14 - 6/16: Mars in Aries Conjunct Chiron: An old pain or trauma feels especially present today. Be gentle with yourself, though everything in you may be calling for you to ignore the pain and push ahead. Trust what your body is trying to tell you. It is wiser than your plan.
6/15 - 6/16: Sun in Gemini Trine Saturn in Aquarius: Our slow evolution into a new age sparks a new idea within you.
6/16 - 6/17: Sun Square Neptune: There is tension between what we dream of being real and what is actually real. This feels like misinformation gone viral. Sometimes it's easier to believe the lie than confront the truth.
6/18 - 6/19: Venus Square Saturn + Venus Sextile Neptune: The way you love and relax into the essential pleasure of life faces up against the limitations your society has placed up us. Look to your dreams and trust your gut today to find small ways to escape the systems designed to keep us in our place.
6/19 - 6/20: Mercury in Gemini Sextile Jupiter in Aries: Living with courage helps you think fast. The fire of life is setting your synapses alight. This feels like adventure and the intersection of boldness and cleverness.
6/21: Venus in Taurus Trine Pluto RX in Capricorn: As we contemplate the failures of our current society, we find peace and pleasure in helping others seek a new way.
6/21 - 7/20: Sun In Cancer: The first days of summer are upon us. This is a slow warming, a soothing of the soul as we gently nurture the plants in our gardens and the people in our lives.
6/23 - 7/17: Venus in Gemini: There is a lightness and flirtation to this season. Venus in Gemini doesn't take much seriously. The planet of love and pleasure flits about, curious to experience new things, people, and places. Nothing holds her in place for too long right now.
6/27 - 6/28: Mars in Aries Sextile Saturn in Aquarius: Your power and energy is well aligned with the systems that surround you, giving you a boost in using power that serves the whole. Light the way into the future for anybody who may follow the path you are blazing today.
6/28 - 6/29: Sun in Cancer Square Jupiter in Aries: There is a tension between the ways in which we feel nurtured and protected (or nurture and protect others) and the ways in which we want to claim what is ours and expand into the boldest version of ourselves. A clash of egos.
6/28 - 6/29: Venus in Gemini Sextile Jupiter in Aries: Be bold when communicating your loves and desires to each other and to the world. This is a moment to expand into the ideas that fill your heart with gladness.
6/29: New Moon in Cancer: You're seeking love and validation in a new way. This feels like a warm hug after a long day, or the feel of the sun on your eyelids as you tilt your face toward the sky. A breath of relief.
June sends us on less of a wild goose chase than May. But there is still truth to be confronted, and pleasures and pains to be navigated. But, with more of a balance between the elements, it feels like we’re more able to be ourselves as we do it, as opposed to be extremely activated in just one aspect.
