Today's Horoscope This week This month

Cancer horoscope for June 2024

For you, June is always a month of transition, with your old solar year coming to an end but with the Sun returning to Cancer on the June solstice, with your birthday month and new solar year starting on 21st June. This is when you are going to notice the lines between the past, present and future start to blur, something that will stay that way for the rest of the year. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of June in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, with the final weeks of your old solar year a chance to look back and reflect on the journey the year has taken you on.

With Venus here until 17th June, it comes just as she is taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down memory lane, while Mercury's return from 3rd June to 17th June will be a chance to look back more objectively. Yet as they one by one leave and return to Cancer, where the focus will shift to new beginnings and the journey ahead, they will leave behind Jupiter, who in his first full month in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart has just begun the 12 month wind down of your current 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. This will end with Jupiter's return to Cancer in June 2025 but until then, this brings you to the start of a period of transition, with the next 12 months having a quieter and calmer vibe that will make it easier to rest and reflect.

Life will go on, but to time recharge your batteries and to hear yourself think is set to become a lot more important. Meanwhile, until leaving your career sector on 9th June Mars will be working to get the month off to a busy start, as he works to gain as much professional traction as possible. Along with a Full Moon in your work sector late last month, this is the last real push that this professional year will get until later next year, with the second half of the year becoming more about the money. When Mars leaves this will see the warrior planet of the cosmos return to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking, where he will take over from where the Sun, Jupiter and Venus left off last month.

Love & Romance

With Venus, the planet of love in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart until 17th June and the dwarf planet Ceres in her first full month in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, on both the romantic and relationship fronts there is a lot of focus on the past from the start. On the relationship front that will continue, with Ceres' first deep dive into your relationship needs and priorities in four years having shifted its focus onto the past. This is a chance to learn from the past but also where you can, make the most of the doors open to the past and second chances. This comes with a lot of support and especially from the asteroid Juno in your communication sector.

However, while the relationship focus will remain on the past on 17th June, Venus' nostalgic trip down love's memory lane will end when she returns to Gemini, something that will have implications on both the romantic and relationship fronts. This is something that will have a big impact on the relationship front and especially when the Sun returns three days later to begin your birthday month and new solar year and all because of the Moon. Until then, things will take a more romantic turn when just 18 minutes after Venus returns to Cancer, the Moon will return to your romantic sector.

This is the only visit the Moon will make while Venus is in your sign, but until leaving on 19th June these romantically charged lunar vibes could make a lasting impression. Venus will not only return to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year but to do what she can to turn those desires into reality. It is just a few days later that the Moon will return for its only visit to your relationship sector while Venus is in your sign from 22nd June to 24th June. This time, because of the Sun's return to Cancer the day before, they will clash to create what will be the first of two Full Moons in your relationship sector during your birthday month.

Business & Career

By the time you move into the new month, it has been nearly six weeks since the Sun left your career sector and with Venus and Mercury having moved through, this is the point in each professional year when things should have dialled back. With the dwarf planet Eris having first returned to your career sector in 1922, she is always here to ensure that things never go completely off the boil while as the warrior princess of the cosmos, when needed you will always have her passion, warrior and competitive spirit to draw on. However, once the Sun and the faster planets have made their annual passage through your career sector, the focus will shift to staying on track rather than having to reinvent the wheel.

You should and would have been at that point had it not been for Mars' return at the end of April. Unlike the Sun, Venus and Mercury, who return at the same time each year and always around the March equinox, Mars returns every two years and rarely at the same time. Mars returned while Mercury was still there and there was no time for time to dial back, with the warrior planet of the cosmos able to get a running start. Mars will leave on 9th June and this is when things will dial back, but with a chance to pack as much into his final days as possible.

What could make Mars' final days some of the most defining of this professional year is that he will spend them aligned with Eris, allowing the warrior prince and princess of the cosmos to join forces in one last push to give this professional year as much momentum as possible. When the Moon moves through from 1st June to 3rd June they will be just starting to come together and as it aligns with both this could add fuel to an already rising warrior and competitive spirit. By the time the Moon comes full circle on 28th June Mars will have been gone for several weeks, making this the perfect chance to regroup. However, it is a week earlier that the Moon will come full circle from last month's Full Moon in your work sector from 20th June to 22nd June. This could see things come together or fall into place on the job front.


While nothing has changed on either side of the financial fence, there is likely to be a renewed sense of confidence, though for different reasons and in different ways. There has been no planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence all year and there will be none until the Sun, Venus and Mercury return to your income sector next month. At the same time, while Pluto has been in your financial sector since January, he is on his own and has been in retrograde motion since late April, with the planet of change and transformation slowly retracing his steps in order to put the past into perspective.

However, it is on this side of the financial fence, the side where the focus is more on your financial situation and money matters and especially in terms of what you do with and how you manage the money you have, that there has been a rise in confidence. This is thanks to the Sun, Venus and Jupiter's return to an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart towards the end of last month. This has already seen the Sun and Venus form a friendly aspect while Jupiter and Pluto will begin the month at the same positive aspect, fuelling your financial confidence and imagination from the start.

With Jupiter here until June 2025 and Pluto in the early months of a 20 year visit, the planets of lucks of luck and change will remain in lockstep for the next 12 months. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity in your income sector, the Moon's return to your income sector from 10th June to 12th June will make these some of the most potentially lucrative days of the month. This is something that every four weeks can sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger, but returning a day after Mars leaves your career sector on 9th June there will be a lot of professional momentum to piggyback off. This is also when your over the horizon radar will start to pick up on the approach of planets that will return to your income sector next month.


Don't be surprised if you don't have much gas in your tank or wind in your sails or that you either can't or you don't want to push yourself as hard as you have done in the past. This is always the case at this time of year, with the month long wind down of your old solar year a time for pulling back, conserving your energy and recharging your batteries ahead of the Sun's return to Cancer and the start of your birthday month and new solar year on 21st June. However, as this is also the first full month of the 12 month wind down of your current 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion, this is likely to be more extreme this year. The Moon's return to your work sector from 20th June to 22nd June will give you a chance to check in with what your body is telling you, just as the Sun returns to Cancer.
