June is jumpy, impatient, and restless with Sun and Retrograde Venus in Gemini. The energy is skittish, and the mood is mercurial even as we each must answer the question "Should I stay, or should I go?" for ourselves as June begins. By the month's end, the question will have answered itself.
The nervous energy of retrograde Venus in Gemini squares Mars in Pisces and conjuncts the Sun June 2–3, making us less than discriminating in our pleasure-partnership choices, especially during the Lunar Eclipse at the Full Moon in Sagittarius June 5, squaring Mars and opposite the retrograde Venus/Mars square. We may feel love's arrow has missed its intended mark, and disappointment fuels hurtful words disguised as "honesty." Passive-aggressive anger is the default response to feelings of rejection, and the temptation to drown one's sorrows in reckless excesses of fleshly pleasures is powerful, dangerous, and should be actively resisted.
Mars sextiles Pluto in Capricorn as Mercury stations retrograde in Cancer June 18, setting the stage for the Summer Solstice New Moon / Solar Eclipse in Cancer June 21. Economic anxiety, doubts about the stability of informational and educational institutions, "Homeland Security" issues, and fierce feelings of familial and tribal protectiveness are all triggered. The second of 2020's three Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions in Capricorn occurs June 30, concurrent with the Sun/Retrograde Mercury conjunction as Mercury sextiles Uranus. This is the retrograde version of the April 4 conjunction, and if we've answered "Should I stay or should I go?" incorrectly at the beginning of June, we'll find ourselves back where we were around April 4—or worse. Patience is not a virtue cultivated overnight, and those who need it most are the least likely to develop it. Pass on short-term gains in favor of long-term goals if you want to win in June.
