June marks the mid-year point of 2021—De Rui, Tatler's astrologist and founder of Hong Kong-based astrology service, Chart Life breaks down what June has in store for us.
While we spend more time soaking up the Sun’s vitality, the Warrior planet Mars is lining up to challenge first powerful Pluto, then boss-planet Saturn. Collectively we are being shown how to deal with authority figures in a more productive way.
The 2021 dance between the realism of Saturn and the futurism of Uranus reaches a peak on Duanwu, a.k.a. the Dragon Boat Festival observed by Chinese communities around the world. Celebrations in honour of the patriotic 4th century B.C. poet (who spoke truth to power) may coincide this year with societal scepticism about new tools or inventions. The future is not having an easy time breaking free from the past.
The June 10 solar eclipse in Gemini is an opening to reflect on your learning, sharing, and networking. Resolve to say yes to invitations and to keep more of an open mind. Mercury’s retrograde motion during the better part of June indicates that listening well could be very beneficial.
Opportunities for creative pursuits could present themselves, especially in areas like music or art. You could be especially communicative or receptive on a different emotional wavelength than you are used to.
Follow your heart into this new territory. Love or money could be abundant at the moment—just don’t squander your good fortune on undeserving people. If powerful figures are cramping your style right now, hang in there until the energy shifts in the second half.
