Your June forecast is here and we're talking about that 4-letter word L-O-V-E! Because let's be honest, it's "summer fling" season and we need to know whether to leave our heart at home or not. So read this with caution or with full on heart eyes, either way this will keep your eyes peeled for Cupid.

As much as you love to be part of a perfect pairing, you’ll need more “me time” this June as your independent spirit is called forward. But, absence can indeed make the heart grow fonder — and the affection hotter. As you cultivate your separate interests, you’ll bring intriguing topics of discussion to your dates and mates. Be careful not to create too much distance though, especially while Mercury is in retrograde until the 11th.
At the beginning of the month, a full moon lights up your partnership house and ensures that you don’t push true love away. Your heart will be wide open, and you could manifest someone who wants to go the distance with you. An existing connection could get a new title, too — more like “In A Relationship” than “It’s Complicated” (phew). Strict Saturn gives you some reprieve when it moves out of your partnership house from June 14 to September 17. You’ll feel like your flirty, lighthearted self again, so it’s fitting that Venus will be in your curious, experimental third house from the 5th on. Go ahead and taste the rainbow of options out there. Digital dating brings a higher click-through rate in June, too. Right swipe away! Although the peacocks and players will turn your head early this month, you’ll be ready to give the nice ones a chance after the 22nd. What seemed boring earlier in the month could be sheer heaven later on. Who wants to cuddle under the AC?
Let it go, let it go. June’s star map sounds the call for surrender. Relax, Cancer, we aren’t suggesting you dump the love of your life or walk away from a promising prospect, but maybe you’d benefit by not holding on quite so tightly. See what happens if you create a little more breathing room with your boo. Get back into your own creative passions, start meditating, or take guitar lessons. Grounding in your own self-worth is the antidote to the insecurity that inevitably bubbles up when a sensitive soul like you falls in love. Plus, being a teensy bit out of reach makes you a hundred times more desirable.
As for that negligent lover who failed to call after your awesome third date (the one that turned into an extended sleepover)? If you haven’t made amends by the new moon on the 11th, shut the door for good. A bonfire burning of the Black Keys shirt he left at your place wouldn’t hurt either — a jilted Capricorn friend may happily help you heap fuel on that fire. Saturn slips back into your romance house from June 14 to September 17. You’ll be far more discerning about who and what you’ll accept in love. You’ve learned your lessons over the years, and you won’t be making the same mistakes again. This Saturn phase could bring a solid commitment, proposal, or even a pregnancy. Or, you may be attracted to someone a little older or more mature than your usual type. Then, the heat turns up big time at the month’s end. On the 22nd, the brilliant sun enters Cancer, followed by lusty Mars. The six weeks that follow will find you totally in demand. Take the lead in love, and be more assertive about making your fantasies come true.
Get out and mingle! With a star-powered stack-up in your social 11th house, you won’t have any trouble meeting interesting people this June. So, why not find someone who shares one of your passions or interests? Group participation can bring the bonus of a love connection before the 22nd. You could meet your match through mutual friends this month, too, or reconnect with an old pal only to discover that your bond is far more than platonic this time around. The 11th house is on the tech sector of the chart, so fire up your dating apps and do some right-swiping. Amorous Venus will cruise through Leo from the 5th on, so you’ll be quite in demand. With your magnetism off the charts, clean house of anyone who doesn’t appreciate full-volume Leo. You might even take a short dating hiatus (a few days or weeks even) to regain your connection to numero uno. There’s nothing like being in love with yourself to attract a high-quality selection of admirers. Luck is on your side.
The full moon at the beginning of the month could bring a passionate connection with someone new — or an exhilarating milestone with the one you adore. This full moon falls in your fertile fifth house and could herald a pregnancy. (Double-protect all month if you’re not ready for cradle rocking.) It could also be the moment where you finally fess up to feeling the l-o-v-e. Already spoken for? It takes a village to make a relationship work — provided you have the right people on your team. This month, think about whether your friends are supportive or disruptive to the harmony of your love life. Create some space from people who are always making you second-guess your decision to commit.
Newsflash, Virgo: Organizing your dates into a spreadsheet and ranking system isn’t exactly sexy. But, you’ll be feeling rather goal-oriented about affairs of the heart this June, so you might actually go there. (Hey, whatever makes the agonizing process easier…) Getting clear about your longer-term desires would be a smart move. With the sun, Mercury, and Mars in your traditional 10th house, you’re advised to aim high. Someone you considered uptight or too mature a while back could actually be just what the love doctor ordered this month. You’ll be attracted to the power players, too — and a suit-and-tie type might just sweep you off your stilettos near the new moon on the 11th.
If you’re in a relationship, you could start a business with your sweetie or earn your reputation as the enviable power couple in your circle. Be fair warned: Talks could grow serious in June — maybe too much so. If you find yourself getting dragged down by those “Where are the two of us heading?” inquiries, take a break and do something spontaneous. You, too, can spiral out too far into the future. There’s no point in arguing over baby names if you aren’t enjoying each other’s company right here, right now. Slow down, and let things happen in due time.
Think you have a type, Libra? Guess again. June’s star map is sure to broaden your horizons, proving that you can’t judge a book by its cover. With planets in your global ninth house for much of the month, you could fall head over Dr. Martens for a cutie from another culture. Signed up for summer school? A workshop or seminar could unearth a brainy hottie who loves a good intellectual chat as much as you do. Now’s also the time to post some new pics to your online profile — Venus will tour your tech sector from the 5th on, bringing some promising prospects from the digital realm.
This is the month for a couple’s getaway, so if you’re already spoken for, reserve that double room and get your passports out of storage. One caveat: You might want to wait until Mercury snaps out of retrograde on the 11th to take your sexy sojourn. Whether on vacay or in your home city, get out and socialize more as a pair. This is a fabulous month to co-host a soiree and introduce all your friends to one another. The sun and motivator Mars move into your traditional 10th house for the last week of June. Have “the talk” about your shared future — or ditch the players and save your final rose for someone who can actually go the distance.
Now they see you, now they don’t. With an assembly of stars in your enigmatic eighth house, your mysterious allure is fully deployed. You’re down for the cat-and-mouse games and the drawn-out seductive dance, just don’t be so hard to get that the pursuer gets thrown off your trail. While you’re at it, keep your radar on for power players — a sexy suit could enchant you after the 5th. Truthfully, you’re also jonesing for an intense and passionate connection. But, you’ll need your alone time in between the proverbial “Red Room” romps, thanks to stoic Saturn’s retreat to Scorpio from June 14 to September 17. A little extreme? Yes, but ‘tis the Scorpio way. Be honest about wanting time to focus on numero uno, so your love doesn’t think you’ve pulled a disappearing act.
Coupled Scorpios could feel that urge to merge in more meaningful ways. When Mercury ends its retrograde on the 11th, ring shopping or apartment hunting plans could be underway. The last week of June will be much lighter as the sun and Mars head into your jet-setting ninth house. Book the couple’s getaway or take your sexy single self to a festival, glamp-out, or far-flung city full of attractive strangers.
Feel like you keep taking two steps forward, one step back? With communication planet Mercury in retrograde in your relationship house until the 11th, June could be off to a confusing start. Ride the wave, Sagittarius, and expect a series of highs and lows. If you stay steady — despite your love interest’s wavering desires and needs — you’ll come through with your heart (and relationship) intact. Don’t spend early June obsessively checking for you-know-who’s texts! With the annual full moon in Sagittarius lighting up the skies, it’s time to pursue your solo passions and interests. Absence most definitely will make the heart grow fonder.
You’re attracted to a wide spectrum of types this month, and with Venus nearby, a cross-cultural romance will simmer with extra spice. Vacationing could bring a bonus perk of romance — don’t rule out the long-distance relationship. After the 24th, the sun and Mars connect in your playing-for-keeps eighth house. If you’re not exclusive (or even putting a ring on it) by then, you’ll be ready to deliver the ultimatum, “Commit to me, or I’m moving on.”
Gym buddy by day, bedroom buddy by night. With a posse of planets assembled in your well-being sector this June, you’re taking “healthy relationship” to a whole new level. Sharing morning smoothies, TRX workouts, and, er, Iron Mans between the sheets will certainly ignite your lit-from-within glow. Just be careful not to overschedule your sweetie or get super rigid about time. Spontaneity is the essence of romance, after all. Single Caps could feel the sparks with the cutie on the adjacent elliptical. Keep those earbuds cranked to a respectable volume so as not to miss that opening line.
Is the ghost of a lover past still haunting you? The full moon at the beginning of the month helps you mourn and release. You might even do a ceremonial purging under this moon. Gather up those birthday gifts, photos, and tattered tees (that still smell faintly of Acqua Di Parma), and let them be the tinder for a beach bonfire. Attracting new love — or stirring up the magic with your amour du jour — will be a snap as Venus slips into your sexy, magnetic eighth house from June 5 on. Keep those little black dresses at the front of your closet, and treat yourself to some new lingerie. This Venus phase makes you a total night owl. Coupled Caps, get your post-workout disco naps in so you can enjoy evenings out, too. The sun and passionate Mars will both be in your relationship sector at the beginning of the month, and things could get serious. Save the talks about the future until June’s final quarter, though — you’ll have a clearer idea of what you want from relationships.
Cupid is most definitely in your corner this June, as the sun, lusty Mars, flirty Mercury, and a new moon all ping your fifth house of true love. Let your low-key, “it’s all good” MO fly out the window. Your desires are bolder and more complex this month — and that’s a good thing. Besides, if anyone could afford to be a little more diva-like, it’s you. Spell out your wishes, both in and out of the bedroom. When you’re clear about your wants and needs, you have a far better chance of getting them met. The new moon on June 11 could bring a promising prospect — or a blast from the past. Mercury will be in retrograde until that same day, which might just lure an old flame back into your orbit. Don’t rush to reconcile or be too quick to say no. Give yourself until the month’s end to see how it all pans out.
June’s stars could also bring a rush of baby fever, even a pregnancy if you’re ready to rock the cradle. Ardent Venus camps out in your commitment zone from the 5th on, so make sure anyone you open your heart to is looking for something more than a spicy summer fling. With stern Saturn slipping back into your ambitious 10th house from June 14 to September 17, finding the balance between work and love could get dicey. And, while you love a big project, if it causes stress in your personal life, scale back, or save it until you’re more prepared to handle the time and expense required. On the 24th, capricious Jupiter forms a lucky triangle with your ruling planet, unconventional Uranus. The element of surprise will work in your favor, so do something unexpected to woo your boo.
Let’s hear it for your girls! This June, having a solid sisterly crew could be the very best thing for your love life. Find the Bella to your Gigi or the Marnie to your Hannah. Your friends will bolster your confidence, keep you in the reality zone, and provide a welcome distraction when you start obsessing over your latest crush or romantic drama. In between girls’ nights out, you could be prepping for your first home visit with your latest love interest or even scoping out apartments for your future cohabitation station. If you’re single, give the nice guys a shot this month. Also, consider creating a blank space in your home to attract a mate. Leave a few empty hangers in the closet and even work a little feng shui magic. Make sure your bed is accessible from both sides, and place pairs of objects around your home to symbolize the power of two.
Meeting the parents could go really well after Mercury ends its retrograde on the 11th. The sun and red-hot Mars zip into your flamboyant fifth house in the last quarter of June, ensuring that your nurturing nature doesn’t take you from hot mama to mommy dearest. Kick off the flip-flops, slip on the Loubs, and go enjoy some sultry date nights on the town. Single Pisces, expect to meet your mate at an upscale event, party, or concert after the 24th.
Flirt alert! You want to be noticed this June, and you’re willing to make the extra effort in the name of turning heads. Venus spends most of the month in Leo and your fifth house of passion, glamour, and flamboyant style. Dress up and paint the town crimson — whether you’re stepping out solo or with some enviable arm candy. The full moon at the beginning of the month could bring a cross-cultural click or a vacation romance for rams on summer holiday, so keep your ears perked for sexy accents. But, beware: Attracting admirers is the easy part this June. Figuring out which one you like best, however, may leave you feeling like the bachelorette at her first rose ceremony. On the 14th, serious Saturn backs into Scorpio and your playing-for-keeps eighth house. You could have misgivings about a 2014 breakup or not giving a good prospect a chance. Extend the olive branch, and see what can be done to repair the rift.
In a relationship? That doesn’t mean you have to dim your bright lights. Witty banter with handsome strangers makes you feel attractive — and you can bring that mojo back home to enjoy with your mate. This three-month Saturn cycle could bring up some pretty deep discussions with your S.O. about what the future holds. Everything from your romantic fantasies to how you divide the household bills will be on the table. Bottom line: Lust and trust must go hand in hand after the 14th. From the 22nd on, your nesting instincts will come out in full force. Start shopping around for that cute two-bedroom or summer share with your boo. Single Aries, invite your crush for a home-cooked dinner, and watch the romance bloom.
June is off to a sultry and intense start for you, Taurus, as a full moon in your eighth house of permabonding brings a relationship to a make-it-or-break-it point. There’s no room for gray here (unless it’s the Fifty Shades variety). Decide for yourself or deliver an ultimatum: Are you in or are you out? The full moon may also herald a more exclusive label for casual connections or a marriage proposal for the coupled Taurus. Follow your urge to merge — or your intuition’s SOS cry to bounce from a bad romance. Thankfully, the rest of the month won’t be so extreme. With a cluster of planets in your grounded second house, you’ll enjoy some delicious courtship rituals and clear signals from the one you adore. Set your Spotify to a slow-jam station — holding hands and cuddling on the couch can be a totally sensual experience. If that pace is too agonizing, don’t worry. It’ll pick up when Mercury ends its retrograde on the 11th.
Coupled bulls will find themselves stressing over money matters early this month. Keep things fair with clear spending agreements, and make sure you aren’t living beyond your shared means. Meanwhile, structure-hound Saturn slips back into your partnership house from June 14 until September 17, making you a lot more serious about the parameters of love. A recurring issue — the one you always seem to fight about — demands real solutions this time. Figuring out a compromise doesn’t necessarily mean splitting things 50/50. Sure, you need your relationship to be fair, but play to your individual strengths, and consider outsourcing some of the things you both hate doing. In the last quarter of June, your flirty nature will come out full force. Whether you’re planning adventurous playdates or Tinder-ing away, variety will be the spice of your love life.
