It’s okay to pause to look at the bigger picture. Think of it as the Moon wanes into its last quarter in Pisces at the start of the week, making us jittery and nervous about getting results quickly. If you feel like you’re focusing too much on pleasing other people, it’s a good time to step back, collect your thoughts, and better understand your emotions.
The longest day of the year for those in the northern hemisphere comes on Tuesday, when the sun enters the intuitive sign of Cancer. Celebrate the Summer solstice enjoying the sun with friends and family. We’re entering a season that’s all about strengthening our roots and finding our own versions of domestic bliss.
We are also encouraged to invite intrigue into our relationships on Tuesday, when bewitching Venus forms a trine with transformative Pluto. If you are single, this could be an excellent day to meet up with someone special. Those in partnerships may also notice things heating up, so make sure you harness that energy by tapping into your sensual side. If romance is the last thing on your mind, know that this transit can also inspire us to reinvent our image. Don’t be afraid to experiment and take risks with your style.
Then, on Wednesday, love and beauty-ruling Venus enters inquisitive Gemini, boosting flirtatious energy even more. Venus is graceful in Gemini, meaning she enjoys moving through this sign and enhances our ability to socialize along the way. Despite this, you may find that focusing on one person is a bit difficult, as our opinions can change quickly under this influence. Try not to take it personally when you fall away from someone else, and instead just shift your attention to a new conversation. Think of this transit as a party full of friends jumping around – there’s always someone to catch up with.
Here is your horoscope for the week ending Monday, June 20, 2022.
Fall down a rabbit hole this week, Aries. As you seek to nourish yourself with wisdom and adventure, making a few adjustments to your routine can help you open yourself to an exciting new world of knowledge.

Over the weekend you could come up with a brilliant strategy to apply to your work. Get a pen ready and jot down your ideas so you can move on next week.
Family conversations will be the focus this week, Taurus. Take the opportunity to reconnect with loved ones and enjoy each other’s company while reminiscing about your past together.

Clingy Taurus can take this chance to reignite their passions with their partners thanks to a spicy meeting of planets.
Consider all possibilities Gemini. You may be feeling extra hopeful this week, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Single twins have a chance to fill their social calendars — and maybe meet a few potential love interests in the process. If you find someone who can catch your attention, all bets are void. If you are a couple, try to open a new dialogue about common goals. You should be wary of making hasty financial decisions during this time as our emotions will quickly cloud our minds. Before making any big money moves, get an outside perspective and evaluate all your options.
Your sensitivity is an asset, not a weakness, Cancer. So if you feel the need to withdraw from the world, take a moment this week to recharge in solitude. You are stronger than you give yourself credit for; You just have to learn to rely on your intuition a little more. Then, when you’re ready to step back into the spotlight, you can do it with flair.

You are feeling contemplative this week and you may be called to cleanse your emotional world and reflect on your connection to all things spiritual.

Just make sure you take advantage of the lightning bolts of inspiration that are hitting this week or your energy could be unleashed quickly.
Important conversations about your career await you this week, Virgo. If you’ve worked hard to achieve a career goal, connecting with loved ones could be just what you need to open up and relax so you can take positive steps towards success. So when you’re ready to mentally unplug, get in touch with your favorite people and make a plan to enjoy the sun together. Your head can also fill up with new ideas for managing your finances during this time. If you find yourself being pulled in too many different directions, be sure to seek advice before committing to anything in writing.
Allow yourself to be vulnerable and you might be pleasantly surprised, Libra.

Your mind craves stimulation, Scorpio. Keep it happy and sharp by investing time in learning skills that could boost your career progression.

Partner Scorpios may enjoy snuggling up with loved ones and soaking up their affection.
Let your passion be heard Sagittarius – just make sure you find the right way to share your ideas with the world. If you focus on constantly opening up new dialogues, you can gain new insights and make some friends along the way.

Experiment with new recipes, workouts, and schedules to see what suits your current needs, and you might end up discovering something delicious or delightful.
Try not to put so much pressure on yourself and those you care about, Capricorn. You may be tempted to look for hidden meanings in messages this week, but if you can learn to let go of what you can’t control, you’re on the right track to finding self-love. With relationships in the brain, you’ll also gain a better understanding of the balance of give and take in some of you, which could help you set more positive boundaries. In the meantime, your career zone may light up and alert you to new projects and positions. When pursuing your goals, be sure to consider your availability. Remember: You can do anything, but you can’t all.
It’s okay to let some things slide, Aquarius. The high standards you hold are commendable, but they can also be detrimental to your mental health. It’s impossible to achieve every goal you’ve set for yourself this week, so take a break and allow yourself to live in the here and now. You will be able to refocus your energy and prioritize with wisdom as your health and work spaces ignite in the sky. Making sure you use your time efficiently will also help you meet your deadlines faster. So before you say yes to any project, job, or favor during this time, ask yourself what you can truly accept.
People notice your passionate spirit, Pisces. If you start a conversation about what drives you, you can make some exciting connections this week. Take the opportunity to make new friends with people who share your interests and you could be on your way to forging a new partnership or circle of colleagues.

There are countless exciting opportunities ahead of you. Use your sharp wits to map out your options and you’ll find your way to them in no time.
