You’ll never know if you don’t have a go. That’s the medicine of this week’s astrological weather. After a dramatic and potentially heavy few weeks (or months, but who’s counting?) the sky is beckoning you to lighten up and take a chance.

With the Sun firmly in Gemini and the moon building towards its monthly crescendo this weekend (a full moon 4 June AEST, 3 June GMT), you should be feeling more spontaneous than you have in months. Other than a day or two of introspection late in the week (Thursday/Friday), it’s green lights and “DO pass go, do spend $200!” vibes; the kind of weather, pleading for you to shake it off and have a crack. Throw your hat in the ring, experiment with something different or say “yes” to that unexpected invitation.

Ready to get out of your comfort zone? Whether it’s calling the sibling you haven’t spoken to since Christmas or booking a round-the-world ticket you’ve been dreaming about for months, this week calls for big, bouncy “eff it, let’s do it!” energy. Don’t fixate on the outcome, instead, enjoy the experience of taking a chance.


As the full moon (Saturday EST, Sunday AEST) brings a moment of illumination –giving yourself permission to be a little experimental (particularly with money) will be a welcome escape from recent intensity. That’s not a free pass to go nuts on but it may be time to seek a second opinion or look outside your immediate comfort zone if you’re struggling to get moving on your cash goals.


Your closest bonds get a big boost of energy courtesy of a fiery full moon on the weekend (Saturday EST, Sunday AEST). It’s the kind of weather where balancing the “me” with the “we” could feel trickier than usual. Don’t be surprised if issues that usually go unsaid with your significant others (both platonic and romantic) come to the fore – better out than in.


While the world may be buzzing around you, it’s all about chill this week (and the next few, tbh) for Cancer folks. Laying low and prioritising rest, solitude and all the things that help you connect to a sense of lightness should top your to-do list. With the full moon casting a spotlight on your health and wellbeing, trying something different within the realm of self-care could feel extra juicy.


While the pull to overcommit to big crazy ideas at work will be major, your energy is better spent elsewhere. Instead of biting off more than you can chew, try to focus on who you’re spending your energy with off the clock. With this week’s full moon highlighting your social (and sex) life, loosening up and getting rowdy is long overdue.


The tightrope between showing up at work and keeping a lid on things at home will be a major theme this week as Gemini season puts your multi-tasking skills to the test. Navigate the instability by using a light touch rather than a firm grip. Expect surprises and allow for spontaneity –even a mistake or two – and trust whatever shakes out, it’s not the end of the world.


With Gemini season helping you find a fresh sense of perspective, this week gives you a the space to reflect on what you might need to say or do to clear the air. Come the full moon on the weekend, getting something off your chest (even if you hadn’t planned to) might be unavoidable. If you’re on the receiving end, take comfort in knowing it’s the kind of weather for spontaneous outbursts.


Don’t be surprised if some sneaky little secrets or issues you thought were airtight bubble up out of nowhere like a glass of Prosecco overflowing this week. Heading it off at the pass by chatting with a trusted confidante (or counsellor) could be an excellent way to deal, especially Thursday/Friday when the moon puts you in an extra moody state of mind.


Pressure builds this week ahead of a full moon that casts a can’t-look-away spotlight on your closest relationships. As potentially long-held opinions come to the fore, there’s a sense that once you start hashing it out, it might be hard to stop. Regardless, clearing the air is long overdue and despite the initial fireworks, has the potential to be productive.


There’s a flurry of activity this week as a (reasonably) inspiring you to get on top of life admin. Watch out for a little saltiness around Thursday/Friday when a friend could unwittingly reopen an old wound. Let it go and move on, on the weekend when a fiery fully moon inspires you to press go on something you’ve been  thinking about for a while.


Lightening up may not be something that always comes easily for Aquarian folks but that’s exactly what’s in order this week. With the moon gliding through (mostly) neutral territory (except Thursday/Friday) consider a directive to loosen up and have fun an astrological prescription. Things look extra spicy on the weekend when the full moon brings the noise.


There’s no shortage of action going on behind the scenes this week as Gemini season lights a fire under familial (or at least housemate) dynamics. With a full moon pulling focus on work/life balance, finding a happy medium may be near impossible. Resign yourself to things being a little impulsive and embrace the unpredictable vibe.
