At long last, it’s officially June, which means summer may be occupying some amount of your headspace. And to maximize your summer-loving efforts, it’s wise to turn to the cosmos in this first edition of your summer love horoscope 2019. This month, Mars is in Cancer, meaning your desires are best expressed through deep nurturing. Now’s the time to be extra-sensitive to a partner’s (or potential partner’s) needs, tending carefully to any emotions that seem right beneath the surface.
Venus leaves super-sensual Taurus for talkative Gemini on the 8th, so you can express your thirst with words. Translation: This is the hottest sexting month of the year, according to the stars. In addition to stockpiling digital messages to send in the coming weeks, bookmark the following romantically significant dates this month:
June 2: Venus trine Pluto (meaning the two planets align at a soft angle). The deepest depths of love can be revealed if you dare to look at the shadows of your relationship.
June 14: Mars trine Neptune and opposite Saturn. Projection clashes with reality, and the truth could make you angry (or just randy). Either way, work out that conflict in bed.
June 19: Mercury opposite Pluto. Your words could be cutting, so make sure you don’t ruin things by being critical of a new lover.
June 23: Venus opposite Jupiter. Too much is never enough, which means you might fall head over heels and then spend the rest of the summer wondering what the heck even happened.
With your calendar marked with those important dates and a backlog of sexts ready to send the object(s) of your desire, you’re ready to take June by romantic storm. Below, check out what’s in store for your zodiac sign.
You’re not always super cuddly, but June’s stars insist that you nest with the best of ’em. Your ruler, Mars, wants you to ramp up your desire, let go of your usual “I’M BORED!” mantra, and chill at home—even if doing so feels unnatural and uncomfortable at first. Slow down long enough to make your partner a smoothie; if you’re single, say yes to scrolling and swiping in your pajamas instead of dressing up and heading to the bar—just for now, though. After Venus jumps into Gemini on the 8th, you’re good to slide into your crush’s DMs because your literary charms are off the hook. The full moon in Sagittarius is perfect for steamy rendezvous, so book a jaunt on the weekend of the 15th.
Revel in the glorious sensual vibes of the first week of June, Taurus, because aside from gifting you a glow usually provided by your stylist, Venus makes you a magnet for romance.
