With Cancer season just around the corner, it’s the astrological equivalent of a “Reduce Speed” sign. Before we get there, one final piece of information— possibly in the form of an overshare—will kick off the week (Monday GMT)

After a little hiccup around Tuesday (GMT), where a tender spot from last week’s Karen-y weather resurfaces, we are sailing towards the solstice—a big juicy, bolstered by a big, playful Sagittarius moon setting the scene for adventure, indulgence and fun Thursday GMT. On Sunday, a Capricorn full moon rounds out the week and encourages a little bit of structure before the new week unfolds.

Remember to always read for your rising sign, rather than your sun sihoroscopes-june-17-2024gn to get the most accurate read. Cast your chart at to learn your sign.

Aries and Aries rising

A little extra care around your email, text and online shopping is required early in the week as Mercury’s final steps through Gemini could see seemingly simple communications go awry. Once that speed bump is behind you, a growing urge to enter sloth mode will have you glued to the couch. Don’t beat yourself up but be careful not to go overboard on the EOFY homewares sales; you could do some major damage on 1stdibs without batting an eyelid.

Taurus and Taurus rising

The saga continues this week as last week’s tricky “feedback” bubbles up again around Tuesday. Keep your cool and hold your tongue unless you’re gagging for another confrontation. Instead, focus on the steadier pace and prioritise good times, comfy pants and your most cherished viewing. Revisit something that makes you feel utterly at home, guilt-free. Rewatching Sex And The City for the 394th time is your business and your business only.

Gemini and Gemini rising

Intuitive pings could make for some pretty wild conversations early in the week as your ruling planet (Mercury) loosens its tie and cuts loose. Vulnerability is beautiful but not everyone needs to know your innermost thoughts. Your musings are precious—save them for people who deserve them! By midweek the slower pace will have you pondering cash issues which culminate next weekend on the full moon. Wait for a fresh perspective on Sunday before you press go on anything major.

Cancer and cancer rising

Get ready to get cosy! Your home season is coming in soft, and it feels delightful. The world is your Pinterest board early in the week as Mercury and Venus inspire you to spot hair/nails/outfit references wherever you go. The solstice (Thursday GMT) looks especially rosy for low-key hangs before the full moon (GMT) gets you thinking and talking about five-year plans with your most trusted confidantes.

Leo and Leo rising

After a hectic few weeks on the social front, you’re being sent a stellar cue to take your foot off the gas this week. As three planets move out of your friendship sphere and descend into the sleepiest part of your chart, rest, relaxation and a little bit of introspection will go a long way. If you’ve got leave owing, a little break next weekend is the perfect energetic reset. Get away from it all, and embrace the joys of a solo vacation.

Virgo and Virgo rising

Ready to slow down? After an intense few weeks (or months as the case may be) there’s a palpable softening this week as big Crab (Cancer) energy has you feeling all the feels. It’s ideal weather to grab a friend and process everything that’s unfolded this year. Laugh, cry, confide. If a girls’ night or getaway isn’t possible, get yourself into some water (cold plunge, float, ocean) and let it all go.

Libra and Libra rising

There’s a juicy window to connect or confide this week as Venus and Mercury slide into Cancer. Reaching out to a professional mentor or boss feels serendipitous. Look up that person you’ve always admired and see if they’re free for a dirty Chai. If you’ve got the chance get out of town for the solstice, make sure you do. Then brace yourself for some big home truths (literally – about real estate, your home or your fam) around Sunday’s full moon in Capricorn.

Scorpio and Scorpio rising

Tuesday looks a little spicy as politics from last week re-emerges (Hot tip: that person is still stubborn AF and probably not worth wasting your energy on, you won’t change their mind). Instead, focus on engaging with somewhere (plan your next trip) or someone foreign (impromptu Timothée Chalamet back catalogue screening party, anyone?) when Venus and Mercury have you feeling extra dreamy. Later on, the warm, emotional waters of Cancer season (from Thursday GMT) feel a little more familiar for you as the urge to connect with something meaningful builds. An opportunity to engage with somewhere or someone foreign will have you walking on air around the solstice.

Sagittarius and Sagittarius rising

Vulnerability isn’t really your stock and trade but that’s the growing sentiment this week as three planets slide into Cancer. Get the jump on the energy by catching up with a friend on Tuesday (GMT) when a moment of connection and intimacy has the power to heal. When someone asks you how you’re doing, take a moment to consider the question, like, really truly, consider it, before you respond. Your only homework over the coming weeks is to check in with what’s going on and accept whatever comes up.

Capricorn and Capricorn rising

Connection, kindness and intimacy reign supreme this week as the planets encourage you to speak, laugh and cherish your most special people. Wednesday through Friday (GMT) looks especially nice when Mercury and Venus bring a softness to your exchanges. Great weather for having D&Ms or broaching a relationship topic you’ve been dreading bringing up. Let your hair down on the solstice (Thursday GMT) then get ready for productivity central on Sunday when a full moon in your home sign inspires a flurry of earthy practicality.

Aquarius and Aquarius rising

After a month of “little treats”, this week’s energy shift encourages you to delve a little deeper. A little emotional tune up will do wonders, as Cancer season forces you to get in touch with your feeling and get a little more attuned to what your body needs right now. A heart-to-heart with a colleague mid-week could do wonders too. Lean into Sunday’s Capricorn full moon energy to let go of some naughty habits that have snuck into your daily routine.

Pisces and Pisces rising

A hazy shade of “wtf” could cloud your vision early in the week. Thankfully the confusion is short lived before a whole lot of cancer energy turns up the fun in your chart. Creativity, pleasure and intimacy flow freely – especially Wednesday through Friday (GMT) when finding the means to express yourself will feel almost effortless. Paint, draw, dance, flirt. Grab someone you care about and tell them how you feel. This is juicy astro weather made for love and creativity.
