JUNE: Exciting, stimulating, and colorful.
June 3: New Moon in Gemini is auspiciously gifting you options, courage, and manifesting power. You want to try everything, but be mindful about your motivation. A little discernment about where to invest your thoughts goes a long way with this New Moon.
June 4: Mercury enters Cancer. Your thoughts are now triggered by emotional ties to your past, with a slight tendency to personalize everything. The best use of your mental energy this month would be to nurture yourself and others with encouraging and heartfelt communication.
June 8: Venus enters Gemini. The quickest way to someone's heart is through the mind. When it comes to your beauty products this month, you'll want to follow your curiosity. New and colorful have never looked so enticing.
June 17: Full Moon in Sagittarius. Expect your emotions to pour into everything. Don't assume that you're right—instead, allow your insatiable enthusiasm for new experiences lead you into uncharted territories.
June 21: Neptune retrograde. Allow this to lead you to a more reflective place of contemplation, meditation, and stillness. This is an ideal period of delving deeper into your own creative process.
June 21: Summer Solstice. The Sun comes to a standstill in the sign Cancer, marking today as the longest day of the year for us in the Northern Hemisphere. Light is consciousness; it's all that is visible to us (that we are aware of and can see). This is a time of awakening—you are more aware of what life means to you. Big stuff, we know.
Gemini: Happy Birthday! Venus enters your sign on June 8—expect to feel ignite in both mind and heart! All eyes and ears are on you as your mental prowess inspires and uplifts others. Think of the New Moon on June 3 like your Lunar New Year; celebrate by initiating a new phase for the next twelve months. The Summer Solstice redirects your attention to meaningful and nostalgic scents and colors.
PRODUCT: A colorful eye shadow palette, like Huda Beauty’s Neon Obsession Palette ($29).
Cancer: Spiritually focused this season, your mind is more subconsciously driven. This means that spending more time in nature or retreating for the first half of the month is going to be key for your peace of mind. On June 4, when Mercury enters your sign, utilize your strong power of scent to transport you into higher states of consciousness. Think of this month as if you're still in the womb, about to come into the world on June 21st when the Sun enters your sign.
PRODUCT: A citrus perfume, like Acqua di Parma’s Cipresso di Toscano ($125), which smells sensual and fresh.
Leo: It’s time to turn your inner restlessness into fruitful contacts. The New Moon on June 3 paired with Venus on June 8 is bringing you new network opportunities, so seize the opportunity to share your ideas with others, and be honest about turning them into something more profitable.
PRODUCT: A fresh and sparkling polish, like OPI’s Dazzling Dew Drop ($11).
Virgo: June means that your mind is on fire and overactive. You are busy moving closer towards your goals, and with a little more organization, you are well on your way. Focus on streamlining your daily tasks, and being discerning of what's worthy of your time and energy. Pay particular attention to your body and the products you’ve been using, as it's more receptive lately.
PRODUCT: An ingestible lemon essential oil, like this one from Dōterra, hydrates and cleans your system and makes your skin glow.
Libra: Both the New and Full Moon this month are supporting you beautifully to expand your mental horizons—this means saying yes to last-minute travel plans. Think of June as a time of becoming reacquainted with the vision that you have for your life.
PRODUCT: Try an invigorating, soothing mask, like the cooling Talika Bio Enzymes After-Sun Mask ($12).
Scorpio: June thrusts you into sensual and mind-provoking territories. The New Moon on June 3 means that you gain more emotional and/or financial support. Mercury moving into Cancer on June 4 inspires new insight about your life purpose. This month is ultimately about listening to your intuitive instincts while reconnecting with what is meaningful to you. Your beauty routine could use a detox—it's time to try something new and invigorating.
PRODUCT: A detoxing, renewing mask, like Renee Rouleau Rapid Response Detox Mask ($64).
Sagittarius: Relationships come to the forefront for you in June. This season isn't as much about your own experience, but rather how relationships inspire and enrich your life. Relationships are really a reflection of our inner needs and desires projected onto others. Navigating this with excitement propels you into more fulfilling relationships with others. The Full Moon on June 17 is about letting go of the need to be right.
PRODUCT: A soothing toner, like Barbara Sturm Balancing Toner ($75).
Capricorn: This month is enticing you to perfect your skincare routine through more conscious awareness of what you're consuming. A little research can go a long way especially when it comes to health and beauty (might we suggest reading up on our Clean Beauty Pledge?). Mercury opposing your sign on June 4th suggests that others can provide you with invaluable insight—only if you are willing to listen.
PRODUCT: A non-toxic three-step line, wash, toner, moisturizer—Goldfaden MD has got you covered.
Aquarius: This month is exciting and creatively stimulating for you. Be willing to share your ideas with others, and to listen to their suggestions in return. June reminds you that life is a collaborative effort. The New Moon on June 3 makes you more inclined to romance.
PRODUCT: A seductive, volumizing mascara, like Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara ($26).
Pisces: June highlights your reputation and your imaginative and ingenious ideas. The New and Full Moon this month allows you to balance your home and family life with that of your social life. Scattered might be an understatement for how you'll feel this month—but with a little awareness, you can conquer anything. Expect June to be exciting and busy!
PRODUCT: A shimmering body oil, like Patrick Ta Major Glow Oil ($52).
Aries: With the New and Full Moons illuminating your mind this month, you are stimulated and full of ideas. The only thing to be mindful about is that you'll need to plan a little downtime to feel more grounded—this means that while the world is an exciting place to be right now, you'll need to make time to rest. After June 21st, domestic life becomes more appealing.
PRODUCT: A shiny, clear lip gloss, like Glossier’s Lipgloss ($14).
Taurus: Your senses come alive this month and what you truly need and value come more into focus. For a modest sign, you realize how much you value communication and the people around you, and have become more vocal about it. The New Moon and Venus moving into Gemini means that you'll have more opportunities to experience what you need in life.
PRODUCT: A light tan nail polish, like Olive & June Nail Polish in MM.
