💖 Love Horoscope June 2017
Written originally for Glamour
March 21–April 19
Your impulses are going to be tested all throughout June, so it's important that you get your head on straight. Honor your self-care practices and your feels without asking others to validate them. Your sign loves attention, and that's OK—unless it's coming from a blindly self-preoccupied place. In that case, you're acting from a place within yourself that can't be satiated by anyone but you. Get right with your insides so that you don't ask for more from your relationships than is healthy. This month is going to bring all kinds of chaos to your love life if you're not careful, so watch what you say. You're entitled to all of the love in the world, but demanding it from others won't work out well for you. Practice having patience and self-reflection, my love.
April 20–May 20
You need your friends, Taurus. There's a singular kind of support and perspective that your platonic loves can yield, and now they need something from you: a bit of TLC. This month may have you facing some problems with your friendships, but it's nothing that you can't bring to healing with your heartfelt presence. You may need to refine your listening skills, especially around the 13th when it'll be way easier to tune out. Even when you don't see things the same way as someone else, you can always listen and be present for the other person's experience. It's OK to stand on different ground, even as you're standing with someone. Love isn't agreeing about everything; it's sticking around for the sticky stuff.
May 21–June 21
It's easy for you to get so caught up in your interests that you end up scattered and off. This month you need to make some choices so that you can be more effective with your energies, Twin Star. Whether you're off your self-care game, haven't shown your crew the love they deserve, or have forgotten to give your sweetie some much-needed attention, your work is the same: Show up. From the 12th to the 20th, you're likely to feel really messy, and that's when your relationships can fall through the cracks. If you can't be there for someone who needs you, that's OK, but don't ghost them. Own your limitations so that they don't actually limit you, my love. If you don't, it'll feel like everyone is coming for you in the last week of June. Devote yourself to the things and people that you care about, Gem.
June 22–July 22
The Moon is New in your sign but once a year, and it's happening on the 23rd, Moonchild. This is a powerful opportunity to get in touch with your innermost personal life and to take stock of what is (and isn't) working for you. There's likely to be lots of growth and opportunity for drama leading up to that event, so get ready, love. From the 2nd through the 18th, there's so much going on in the sky that it's likely to impact all of your emotional relationships. Beware of projecting your issues on everyone else, and be willing to listen without defensively planning your rebuttal. You can lie to yourself or others, but that only keeps you stagnant, and ain't nobody got time for that. Step up and confront the dank dynamics in your life this month.
July 23–August 22
Confrontation has such negative connotations, but it's a powerful tool. You've been dealing head-on with your ego in recent months, and your work isn't yet over, Leo. It's time to figure out what your boundaries are. It's easy enough to have rules: You're strong enough to hop into the ring with the best of them if you've been crossed. But how do you protect yourself and what you love without going into battle? Reconsider your fears and your worst-case scenarios, and then step forward. All you have to do is be honest, firm, and direct—no gimmicks or games needed. You can't control how others respond and you shouldn't even try. This month, you just need to keep your side of the road clean, my love.
August 23–September 22
Can you tell the difference between your anxieties and your instincts' telling you that something is wrong? The days leading up to this month's Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 9th will kick up a little bit of both, and the best way for you to handle it is with your discerning mind, Virgo. You need to manage your inner world in order to really show up in your relationships. This month may bring you some mixed messages in your love life, but that doesn't mean that things are bad. Don't assume the worst when you don't understand what's going on! Find ways to calm yourself down enough to figure out what's real and what's narrative. There's no need for you to isolate yourself as you do this, either. Reach out to your fam for some much-needed perspective this month.
September 23–October 22
Seeking the truth is a noble cause, but sometimes it's futile. While something is true for you, it may not be true for someone else. If you can't accept the very real differences between you and others, you'll feel out of balance this month—especially from the 15th onward. You are likely to be in a battle with your own anxieties, and the worst thing you can do is seek to make people agree with you in an effort to prove to yourself (or them) that your perspective is accurate. You have a right to your feels, but not to making people agree with them, Libra. For healthy and sustainable relationships, validate your own sweet self and find healthy compromises with others this month.
October 23–November 21
While everyone else is scrambling to handle the intense energies that this summer is bringing, you're in your comfort zone, Scorpio. The astrology of this month is calling you to let go, and you're an old pro at that. If you've been trying to make sense of what other people are doing (or not), then it's taken you off-course. You don't need to know what's motivating others, but you do need to understand what's driving you to stay in the dynamics you're in and handle them as you have been. Honor your feels by taking responsibility for them. Freedom comes from having options, so remember yours. You're very likely not a victim or without recourse, so even if you don't love your choices, be strong enough to make the best ones available to you.
November 22–December 21
The Moon is full in your sign but once a year, and it's always a big deal, so on the 9th you can expect to be full of feels. This whole month is going to trigger big emotions for you, as there's lots of activity in your relationship house, 'Tarius. This can be great for attracting new people into your life, but if you do, expect those new folks to play an intense role moving forward. Don't hide in your relationships, and let them be a vehicle for transformation instead. You shouldn't have to know where things are going to show all the way up. Determine how you feel and what you want, even if it feels like a huge risk, my love.
December 22–January 19
Your emotional self-care needs to be your top priority this June. No matter how compelling it may feel to take care of work or even to manage your relationships, you'll end up just tending to the presentation of your issues instead of their roots. The little day-to-day things that you do to check in with yourself and make sure that you're doing all right are really important—they are the foundation of all that you love because they dictate how much energy you have for connecting with others. This month, your inspiration should come from that image they show you on airplanes of the lady putting the oxygen mask on herself before she assists anyone else in an emergency. Love yourself and loving others becomes easier, Capricorn.
January 20–February 18
Love is a process, so let it unfold. Venus enters Taurus on the 6th, and that can be low-key annoying for you, Aquarius. This month you find yourself agitated by things people do, or the way they do them. This makes it a kind of a hard time for first dates if they're structured, but it can be great for spontaneous meetings. The trick is that you need to get out of your own way. If you're too focused on what you want, you'll see only evidence of its absence. Let your fortunes reveal themselves to you slowly, even if you find that maddening. Nothing needs to be perfect now, or even tomorrow. Learn about what makes you tick from the very things that bug you. Everything can be leveraged into a growth opportunity if you're looking to see it that way.
February 19–March 20
If you feel as if you're being pulled in so many directions that you don't know what to do, that's because you are. You need to prioritize, Pisces, and that's hard to do when everything feels equally important. This month you may have to put love on the back burner while you catch up on the rest of your life, but that can bring up its own problems. Don't ghost the people you love, because they'll come around with hurt feels that you will feel compelled to care for—even if you don't have the time or energy to do so. Let others take care of you! Ask directly for what you need, and then allow yourself to enjoy the gifts you're offered. It's not selfish to accept gifts that are freely given. Be receptive to them, sweet one.
