How's your love life going to heat up this June?
Welcome to YourTango's monthly love horoscope column from astrologer Ellen Whitehurst! Look up your astrological sign to see what love and romance June is bringing your way. Please note: the predictions provided here follow Western astrological dates.
ARIES (March to April 21): Sometimes committing feels incredibly difficult, especially with so much out in the big, wide world to conquer. Not to mention, there's so many potential playmates who won't play games with you, it's entirely understandable that you might hesitate a moment or two when it comes to giving yourself entirely. That said, this month loving Venus trines commitment crazy Saturn and that trine might actually decide that it's time to sign on the dotted line, allowing you to get swept away. If you're already attached you'll only fall deeper. Shocking, I know (but of the electrically charged kind). Now, go out there and get lit — from within.
TAURUS (April to May 21): Venus, the Goddess of All Things Love will take up real estate in the fiery and dramatic Leo, this month. Thus, activating your 4th House of home and family (meaning any and everything domestically oriented). With Leo involved, you'll see steamy passion coming your way, but the better news is that plans to spend some true time and love together will fill your heart, body and soul. Guess what else? The kids actually cooperate. So put those (Yes. More than one!) date nights on the calendar, get out your sexy red undies and have some grand old times!
GEMINI (May to June 21): Between June 6 and June 8, four planets all conspire to put you in the right place at the right time, in order to meet the right person. There's a high probability that this potential new love is long distance; and they'll do their best to convince you to relocate for them. One of the four planets is Venus, all dressed up waiting for someplace to go as she lights up your life in Leo. Just watch the propensity towards drama and, even more, keep a cool head lest you find yourself packing up and heading for the hills with the first flirt who comes along. Remember. A little flirting and canoodling can (sometimes) be just as fun as cooking a chicken with a beautiful bottle of wine.
CANCER (June to July 21): Better get out the fireproof pads because on June 24 mighty Mars will be on fire ... for you! This planet will also actively influence your 1st House of Personality and Appearance too, so look for either (or both) of them to make you the crab of the hour. In fact, for the next two months you'll be upbeat, feisty and glad to hook up (hang out) with someone who both interests and challenges you. You tend to come off overly combative and/or defensive, at times — be cautious of that. By all means keep an eye on your personal security and don't let anyone upset your apple cart. (No matter how delicious a big slice of their pie might be.)
LEO (July to August 21): Are you ready to get lucky? And I mean that literally and with tongue in cheek, as well. Well. Someone's tongue will be in your cheek as Venus, the Goddess of Love is on duty in your sign from June 5 onward. All of us will feel a little more theatrical than usual — especially when it comes to romance. With all this heat burning up the joint, it'll be up to you to temper your urges and without overdoing it. Even if you're head over heels and willing to do absolutely anything to (and for) anyone to prove so. Anyone who appreciates a quality confection will make your love life especially sweet this month. Yum.
VIRGO (August to September 21): Imaginative Neptune is taking up space in your 7th House of one-on-one relationships, Virgo; so you're probably spending tons of time with that special someone or perhaps you're ready to meet a partner who makes your head spin. But, don't get too dizzy, especially if you're still single when Neptune turns retrograde on June 12, turning you all around. You might even think about trying to make something work out with someone who you still adore. And even though you want to step lively with this significant other, you'd be much wiser to tread carefully. If this person is "the one" you'll know it soon enough.
LIBRA (September to October 21): Goddess of Love, Venus is going to set up shop in dramatic and passionate Leo this month, while activating your 11th House of friends and groups on June 5. With all the action lighting up the place it will be hard to not see yourself enjoying a bit of Leo's spotlight. And speaking of imagining ... imagine being the most popular person around, since Venus will make you magnetic while drawing some big attention your way. The best part is, you won't even have to do anything but get up in the morning and breathe. So imagine what would happen if you actually invested yourself in what will surely be a magical love life this month! Shazaam baby!
SCORPIO (October to November 21): Once Neptune turns retrograde on June 12, you might travel back in time and start thinking about the one that got away. If that's the case make sure that you don't pack one (a case that is) because those memories are only of the good times, while you forget the car that drove you apart in the first place. Put the pedal to your mettle and do the best to find someone more suited for you. Your task now is to remember why you split in the first place and don't sugarcoat the truth. The only sugar rush in your life now should truly be that sweet thing that you've had your eye on. Your existing relationship — if you have one — is going to get much more tasty. Forget what didn't work and focus on what will; put your energy and your optimism there.
SAGITTARIUS (November to December 21): A party of planets in chatty Gemini will make the month lively, loving and F-U-N! If you're currently with someone, you two should plan something adventurous together — something that both of you've been thinking about doing but haven't gotten around to. If an adventure involves raising your level of adrenaline, then you should get out and strut your stuff from June 6 through 12, because that's when life will be all cotton candy and ice cream (or fruit and veggies, if you're shedding some pounds).
Either way, you single Sagittarians should definitely be sure to get out and about (if you want to meet someone who's like-minded) or make those resos with your significant other if you're already attached.
CAPRICORN (December to January 21): Get ready Cap because on June 21 the mighty Sun, itself, will bring the heat to your 7th House of Romance and Relationships. This sizzling Sun will soon be followed by passionate Mars making his way into your bedroom — um — I mean your sign, on the 24th of this month too. This means that the two most fiery and scorching ambassadors of astrological love will be affectionately affecting ALL of your encounters, both, personal and casual. Remember that when Cupid and those two planets are shooting arrows at you, you'll be calling all the shots. That also means that you mantra this month might be, "BANG BANG" (if you get what I mean. wink, wink).
AQUARIUS (January to February 21): Open wide and say, "ahhhh" because this month you're on the receiving end of some wonderful attention that will actually last for quite a while, Aquarius. And all thanks to generous gift-giver, Jupiter's presence in your 7th House of Partners. This dramatic and limelight loving planet always comes with a parade, so believe me when I say that you won't even need to lift a finger to find attention all over the place. You'll potentially need to sign a few autographs for all of your ardent admirers and you might also have to pose for a few selfies, as you're out and about — being idolized! But things could certainly be worse now couldn't they?
PISCES (February to March 21): As they say, "if you can't be with the one you love then love the one you're with." And there'll be plenty of people this month who will want to love and be with you, whether you are single or attached. If you're not thinking seriously about settling down, Pisces — the beautiful trine between Venus, Goddess of Love — and practical Saturn, on June 6 will provide you with all the perfect partners you could hope for, and just the right questions to ask them too. Trust me when I tell you that you'll LOVE the answers. Now, perhaps there's some special question that you've been waiting to hear and it may just happen soon.
What will your answer be? There may be a co-worker of yours who really wants to know that answer too, so think about the connections that you have and see if they feel the same. Your significant other, if there is one, will want to love the one (if it's you!) that they're with too. This is a beautiful way to start a sizzling summer.
