What do the stars hold for you this fortnight?

The Tarot is the mirror of our soul. Each card reflects what’s not only going on within us but also, symbolises our divine connection to the forces of the Universe – those which we can see and those which we cannot. The images printed on the cards are symbols that contain the keys to unravel all the mysteries of our existence. However, these images have a life of their own, and thus, they change whenever the cards are shuffled. Every shuffle infuses them and us with magic, true for the horoscope for June 2020 as well.

The following are divinely guided messages from The Universe through the medium of the Tarot, highly personalised for you. I encourage you to keep an open heart and an open mind – that way, you’ll be more receptive to magic, and find the guidance you need for the fortnight.

For those who aren’t familiar with their astrological chart, I would suggest reading the passage pertaining to their Sun Sign – i.e. the zodiac sign that the Sun was passing through at the time of your birth. For example, if you were born on August 19, the Sun was passing through the sign of Leo. Thus, you would find your divinely guided message under Leo.

For those who are familiar with their astrological chart, I would suggest reading the passage pertaining to their Sun Sign, their Moon Sign, and their Rising Sign – also known as the Ascendant or the ‘Lagna’. The combined message will be all the more powerful for your journey.

The drastically dramatic times we’re experiencing on earth is a reflection of the drastically dramatic times in the heavens above. The cosmos is undergoing a major energetic shift and its effects are rippling over to our lives. However, this is all part of a great divine plan that is essential in our evolution. We may not see it now, but soon it will all make sense.

A powerful lunar eclipse is going to occur during this fortnight. The second of the year (the first was in January). Lunar eclipses bring with them surprise beginnings and for many – a blank slate to start afresh. Eclipses also encourage us to take the path less travelled and provide chances to swim against the current. However, seeds planted along the time of eclipses (literal and metaphorical) bring with them unexpected fruits when they blossom. And so, through the Tarot, you have received this divine guidance to make the most of the upcoming eclipse.

Aries June 2020 Horoscope

Actions are needed to be taken for all things that have been pending for so long. However, these can’t be rushed because circumstances are delicate. It all needs to be handled delicately and methodically – two terms that may seem alien for some of you – but understand that rushing through things robs us of the fun of the journey.

Sometimes, the best decision is to just wait patiently and see how things unfold. That’s not being passive – oh no – that’s being self-preservative. A calm exterior will not only help you focus with a clear mind but will also throw everyone else off their game when you finally make your move. That’s how great generals win their battles – on and off the field. Prudence is a virtue best to best to be applied now.

Taurus June 2020 Horoscope

Your ruling planet, Venus, is still in retrograde, causing life to bring about quite a few interesting twists and turns. If things seem to be getting out of control, fear not, for the eclipse brings with it a chance for you to wrap up all that is pending, and start on all that’s been pushed back. You’re being called to action for many things – showing up isn’t optional.

Pay attention to signs and omens from The Universe. They can come in incredibly subtle ways. Even the most trivial anomaly can contain powerful messages that can bring about massive changes. Keep your ear to the ground and be perceptive to all the rumblings. Awareness is key during this fortnight.

Gemini June 2020 Horoscope

The eclipse will have a powerful effect on you, Gemini. There will be many times the spotlight will be put upon you – whether you like it or not. The key here is to wear your mask well. Your mask isn’t a means to fool others – oh no – it’s a means to protect yourself from massive unwanted energies that seem to wish to rob you of your light.

Fear not, for your mask has rarely ever let you down. True, keeping secrets may not be the strongest suit of yours – but you are a master in the art of ‘drip feeding’ information. A nugget here, a morsel there, a quip elsewhere — sending others on a wild goose chase. Doing so will buy you the time you need to hustle your way to better opportunities. Don’t underestimate the element of surprise.

Cancer June 2020 Horoscope

This eclipse, dear Cancer, is time for a cleanse for you. Be it a day of fasting on just liquids (non-alcoholic), or spending some time in silence, or even sage your energy field and every room of your house to exorcise all that haunts you. Sometimes even a good long cry can work wonders to relieve yourself of all that’s weighing you down. Social media cleanses would also help declutter your heart.

Emotions, when dammed up within our hearts, can turn us toxic towards others and ourselves. Give yourself the freedom to open the floodgates and let your heart pour. For only when you allow yourself to release all that’s old shall The Universe bring new blessings and opportunities your way. After all, a heart can only be filled with love when it’s open.

Leo June 2020 Horoscope

Be gentle with yourself, Leo. You’ve worked hard enough and you’ve earned every right to sit back and smell the roses. Deep in your heart, you know that there’s no point worrying about the results of your efforts. You’ve done your bit and thus need to sit back and relax and let nature take its course.

This time-out is essential for your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. After all, mighty lions indulge in their cat naps so that they can rule their jungles effectively with all the gregarious glamour of their charm. So own your time alone, and make ‘self-care’ your mantra. Of course, too much of it can become ‘self-indulgence’. However, heavy is the head that wears the crown. Thus, you truly do deserve the ‘royal treatment’ – and rightfully so!

Virgo June 2020 Horoscope

Despite all our efforts to scrub down every corner – life can get quite messy. In our quest to have control over everything on the outside and manage every minor detail, meticulously – life throws us a curveball and it all comes falling like a house of cards. That’s a good thing because it’s The Universe’s way of teaching you the lesson of adaptability – especially when not in our comfort zone.

After all, a spine is only healthy when it’s able to bend, twist, and turn in every direction possible. Stiffening the spine is akin to paralysing oneself (literal and metaphorical). Thus, when things seem to be going out of your control – that’s the time to take a large cleansing breath and take a moment to just ‘be’ instead of ‘do’. Nothing is beyond salvage – even your own anxious nerves.

Libra June 2020 Horoscope

As Venus enjoys her mighty retrograde, she needs you to choose the path of peace. Indecision is often the bane of many a Libra-soul – even if it’s something like figuring out what to wear today – or balancing the intricate diplomacies of social politics, office drama, family feuds, and even whether to text someone who keeps you up at night. And so, Venus wants you – at least for this fortnight – to choose the path of least resistance.

That can be hard for you, for you do love a good fight. Not because you’re martial, but because you do love the drama that comes along with mental gymnastics. However, this eclipse brings with it the chance of being ‘blindsided’ during conflicts. Thus, for your sake, let peace guide you in all decisions – however boring they may be.

Scorpio June 2020 Horoscope

Some bridges are meant to be burned so that new ones can be crossed. Breaking free from negative patterns of the past is part of the transformative journey. However, it’s important we don’t get burned or broken in the process. Fire destroys, but it also heals and creates the path for new life to grow. Fire is always handled with care and responsibility.

There’s no going back, all systems need to go full speed ahead. There is new ground for you to cover, new worlds for you to discover, and new goals for you to conquer. Expand your horizons and allow yourself to take ownership of your power. You are blessed with the strongest will of the zodiac – use it wisely.

Sagittarius June 2020 Horoscope

You always mean well and have the best intentions for everyone. However, in the process of helping everyone else, we get tangled within their drama. Sometimes their web is so tricky, that it seems impossible to escape. Know that you have the power to be free from it. Understand that your freedom and peace of mind is entirely in your hands.

As good and noble it is to be a source of strength and support to others, you have to take care of yourself. Solving everyone else’s life makes us ignore our own. There’s a big difference in being a source of support and a crutch for parasitic energies. Draw your boundaries well for freedom comes when we learn to let go and say no.

Capricorn June 2020 Horoscope

Hope is a beautiful thing, for it’ll enable you to not only stay afloat during these times, but it’ll spark new inspiration for innovative new beginnings. Things that are hidden to most will be unveiled to you. Things that others ignore will be of great use to you. This is the time to come out from behind all your fears and take on the world.

Know that you’re going through a powerful alchemical journey from within. The journey may make you face your inner darkness, but it’ll also help you discover your inner light, and how to allow it to shine. The light within you is so powerful that it can provide a ray of hope for many – and blind the naysayers and disbelievers. Do not be afraid of it. Let it shine with pride.

Aquarius June 2020 Horoscope

Find moments to celebrate life. Times may be dark and morbid, but that shouldn’t stop you from finding goodness within. After all, even the darkest cloud comes with a silver lining. Celebrating even minor moments of life will not only elevate the mood and energy of those around you – but they’ll open channels of abundance and prosperity for The Universe to bless you.

This is also the best time to rekindle old friendships and strengthen bonds that have weakened. Allow bygones to be bygones and bury all the hatchets that have been out far too long. Remember that forgiveness is not about absolving the other – it’s about allowing yourself to be at peace. Besides, isn’t it about time you had a little fun without any trace of guilt?

Pisces June 2020 Horoscope

Sometimes it’s okay to be the bad guy. Sometimes it’s the only way to achieve the best possible outcome in the situation at hand. Of course, you don’t have to be a jerk about it. Making unpopular decisions may not win you many friends in the short run – but when others see how your actions have actually been good for the collective as a whole – they will understand. Times forgives and forgets all unpopular moments.

Compassion doesn’t mean being everyone else’s emotional doormat. By protecting your emotions, you’re allowing yourself to be a much better friend, colleague, lover, child, parent, spouse etc. If you do not protect yourself – you’re doing a great disservice to yourself and to them. Hold your ground firmly whilst making those ‘unpopular decisions’. Just remember to do so with love and compassion.
