Sunday, June 20 is also the start of Jupiter retrograde, which will last until Sunday, October 17. The retrograde begins in Pisces and your 7th House of Partnership. Following themes above, this retrograde leaves no stone unturned. Jupiter is a very lucky planet, but when it goes retrograde, it reveals things for what they are. So, once again, if a relationship is becoming more boring than bran cereal, please kindly put things to an end so that the both of you can find someone who makes you feel joyful and passionate. Jupiter retrograde ends in Aquarius and your House of Sex, Death, and Transformation. Needless to say, your love life will look different by October than it does now, but trust the stars, it’s for the better! Butterflies and orgasms are on their way.
Mercury ends its retrograde on Tuesday, June 22. If you’ve been holding off on travel for fear of those Mercury RX delays, you can now book a ticket (considering pandemic safety, of course), and communication gets easier, as well. Use this time to express your boundaries and develop a safe word, because Thursday, June 24 brings a full moon in disciplined Capricorn and your 5th House of Pleasure. Strict Capricorn is ruled by the Devil card in the tarot, which is a misunderstood card. Don’t be frightened; this lunation simply suggests you might have a night of hot sex and BDSM, which is a very powerful way to spend a full moon. Of course, you might want to read up on how to practice safe kink first.
The ethereal planet Neptune also goes retrograde this month in its home sign of Pisces and your 7th House of Partnership on Friday, June 25. This retrograde will come to a close later in the year on Wednesday, December 1, but your task, for now, is pretty straightforward, Virgo: Allow relationships to reveal themselves for what they are so that better ones can take their place. Of course, if you’re happily partnered, this can refer to personal work both your partner and you must do to keep your relationship healthy. Neptune is a fun, glamorous planet, but when it appears to move backward in the sky, it’s as if it it’s taken off all its fancy clothes to kick back in comfy grey sweatpants. There’s nothing wrong with this change of pace, but as we’ve learned over the past year, it’s important to be with someone you feel comfortable being vulnerable with.
