Reconnect with relatives or friends who feel like family as a source of foundational strength. Home, family and comfort will remain your focus June 1st-5th so host a dinner party for loved ones, decorate your residence or put aside funds for future domestic endeavors. On a spiritual level, this is an excellent time to create a meditative space in your home to do your craft. What ‘craft’ do you do which in its own way reconnects you to Source? Purchase a desk for writing or drawing, a corner with a mat designated for yoga, an outdoor chair and table which makes tending your garden more pleasurable. Whatever is your go-to activity for rejuvenation should receive special attention at the beginning of the month. Later, you will revert to these activities to meet tender emotional needs when the rest of you returns from asserting in society.
Moon, the ruler of Cancer, will be in your sign on June 17th-18th making those days of personal power.

Or, perhaps, there is an important expenditure you’ve set your sights on such as a home or safer vehicle? Don’t be afraid to ask the Universe for what you want, and if it takes too long then just go get it yourself!
In health matters, Mars transits are usually a surge of physical energy. If you have been wanting to ramp up your workout routine or are planning any activity which requires notable stamina, then plan for the end of June.
