Today's Horoscope This week This month
Leo horoscope for June 2023
While the Sun won't return to Leo to begin your birthday month and new solar year until later next month, there are already new doors opening and things are about to become a lot more exciting than they already are. Unlike the Sun, who returns to Leo at the same time each year Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos follows his own rules, with his return to your sign last month bringing you to the start of a new two year Mars cycle. What will make this even more exciting is Venus' return on 6th June, something that will have implications. There is only so far ahead of the Sun that Venus can get without having to wait and this is as early as it gets.
This means that Venus will be forced to wait, with a retrograde turn next month keeping the planet of money, love, desire and attraction here until October. This will be Venus' longest visit to Leo in our lifetime, with a chance to work her magic right through the middle months of the year. Both Venus and Mars will have a lot to do with the planets still in an adventurous part of your chart after Jupiter left last month while just Mars will be here to benefit directly from a Full Moon in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part on 4th June.
Meanwhile, like Mars, Venus will find herself in opposition with Pluto in your relationship sector when she returns on 6th June, something that is a brand new experience. Yet with Pluto retrograding back out on 11th June, as your personal and relationship needs clash the planet of love can use this to better understand what you want from your relationships and what they need from you and to get the most out of his remaining days. Meanwhile, with Jupiter in his first full month in your career sector having Pluto retrograde back into your work sector on 11th June is the start of a partnership that will remain tight for the rest of the year. Pluto will also return in time to capture the dwarf planet Ceres' final 10 days in your income sector.
Love & RomanceLove is in the air this month and while this is only set to increase, a focus on your relationships is coming to an end or at least for now. Coming to an end is Pluto's short visit to your relationship sector, when less than three months after returning he will retrograde back out on 11th June. This was only ever meant to be a brief look behind the veil or a preview of the 20 years that he will eventually spend here, returning again in January to start over and this time not leaving until 2044. Pluto returned just days after Saturn's three year visit so this was both a continuation and a chance to shift the focus to one where it is more about change and transformation.
It was Mars' return to Leo last month that has already seen him clash with Pluto, which Venus will also do when she returns on 6th June. This might create some personal and/or relationship tension at the time, but just days before Pluto leaves this will once again flush out any balance issues between your personal and relationship needs. This time, just as Venus has returned to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for your new solar year, which doesn't even begin until later next month. This is early in the year for Venus to return and in fact so early that this will have exciting implications.
Getting this far out in front of the Sun will force Venus to slow down, setting the scene for a retrograde turn next month that means instead of rushing through Leo in 24 days she won't leave until October, making this the planet of love's longest visit to your sign in our lifetime. Thanks to Pluto this will not only give you a sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you from the start, but a Full Moon on 4th June and the Moon's departure from your romantic sector just a day before Venus returns will get things off to a romantically charged start. It is a day after Venus returns that the Moon will make its last visit to your relationship sector before Pluto leaves from 7th June to 9th June. A clash with Venus and Mars as it moves through will ensure you are paying attention.
Business & CareerWhile the Sun's departure from your career sector last month has taken the solar spotlight off your career and professional situation, matters and options, rather than dial or ease back things have moved to a higher gear. The Sun will return at the same time each year, spend a month here and then leave, making this the annual update that career matters get each year. Because Uranus is here from 2019 to 2026 things were never going to go off the boil, but as a slow outer planet his is a long term focus and more on maintaining an authentic sense of direction. It was in the Sun's final days and just four days before he left that everything changed, with Jupiter returning to begin your biggest year for professional growth and expansion in over a decade.
Jupiter has only been here for just over two weeks by the time you move into the new month and the Moon is yet to make its first visit, something that will give you a better read on the planet of luck and expansion's influence. It has been 11 years since Jupiter was last here but not leaving until May 2024, where the Sun left off is just his starting point. The Moon will make its first visit since Jupiter's return from 14th June to 16th June and the timing couldn't be better. As well as fuelling your professional instincts and imagination and giving you a better read on Jupiter's influence, the Moon will also form a friendly aspect to Pluto, just days after his return to your work sector.
For the first time in 15 years, your work sector has been empty since Pluto left in March, giving you time to let things settle but also to focus more on career matters. It was less than six weeks after leaving that Pluto turned retrograde, something that will not only see him retrograde back in on 11th June but will see him stay here for the rest of the year. This means that for the rest of the year you will have Pluto, the planet of change and revolution in your work sector and Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion in your career sector and working in harmony, something that has never happened before in our lifetime.
MoneyWhile there are new developments on either side of the financial fence this month there is everything you need for a successful month on both sides. The month begins with the dwarf planet Ceres still in your income sector, with her deep dive into your income needs and priorities continuing until she leaves on 21st June. While Ceres is less focused on the money, with Mars returning next month to begin the most lucrative months of 2023, she is making sure that your income needs and priorities are defined from the start. In Jupiter's first full month in your career sector and of your biggest year for professional growth and expansion in over a decade, this couldn't be more important.
Ceres will leave on 21st June but the Moon's return from 23rd June to 26th June will help tie up loose ends, as well as what it does with each monthly visit, which is to sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger. This will be the Moon's last visit before Mars returns and when it does, he will be making it all about the money. Meanwhile, on the other side of the financial fence things are becoming stable and settled with Saturn, who returned in March slowing to a crawl ahead of a retrograde turn on 18th June. With Neptune turning retrograde here early next month, this is when money matters will go into review mode, standing back as Mars leads a new charge on the income side of the financial fence.
The Moon will make its monthly visit to your financial sector from 9th June to 12th June, while both Saturn and Neptune are still in direct motion, you are still looking to the future but with both at a crawl any urgency is dropping back. As always, as the Moon moves through it fuels your financial instincts and imagination while giving you an intuitive read on your financial situation and money matters. This is also the Moon's last visit before Ceres leaves your income sector and this will see them briefly clash. This might create some financial tension but with Ceres in the final days of her deep dive into your income needs and priorities, this will help to see things from both sides of the financial fence.
