Your weekly horoscope for June 17-23, 2024

Here's what's in store for your zodiac sign this week.

As the sun’s solar radiance joins Venus and Mercury, planets of affection and communication, in a race for the comfort couch in Cancer, a sign of the home-loving, family-oriented Crab, this week settles into the annual season of resting, nesting and guesting. Here’s your weekly horoscope June 17-23, 2024. 

Cancer, Jun 21 – Jul 22

As the sun and Mercury sink into your sentimental sign and Venus commences her layover in your touchy-feely domain, people ease out of their heads and into their feelings again. Time to start hosting those cosy, at-home gatherings with lashings of feel-good comfort food.   

Leo, Jul 23 – Aug 22

At full moon on 22 June the astral force is with you for a midyear progress check to assess your professional status. Could it benefit from clearer agreements? If adjustments need to be made to fit current constraints of time, money and resources, then tweak and rejig as indicated. 

Virgo, Aug 23 – Sep 22

Your mentor planet Mercury moving into its most emotional, receptive and empathetic placement makes it easier to speak about your feelings in this week’s intimate conversations. Also to be more sympathetic and understanding in the possibly edgy family discussions which are likely to surface at this time. 

Libra, Sep 23 – Oct 22

It’s winter solstice, and your prima planet Venus in the zodiac’s stay-at-home sign wants to snuggle up enjoying warmth, connection and nourishment. On the other hand (Libra’s favourite phrase), Cancer season activates your professional aspirations, making this week yet another exercise in finding a workable balance. 

Scorpio, Oct 23 – Nov 21

As this week’s water-sign energy begins to amplify, others might seem increasingly touchy or needy. It’s worth making an extra effort to listen with compassion, reply kindly and edit constructive feedback. Try offering compliments rather than critiques, so that people feel heard and appreciated.   

Sagittarius, Nov 22 – Dec 21

A trio of planets in one of the zodiac’s touchiest signs means this week’s people could be easily offended by how opinions are presented, and super-sensitive to criticism. They’re also likely to be caring, sharing, cuddly and considerate: any or all of the above, the whole package. Best tread carefully. 

Capricorn, Dec 22 – Jan 19

Progress, revamping plans, pivoting as required and correcting course where necessary? Then this week’s full moon in your sign on 22 June – the first of a rare double pair of consecutive Capricorn full moons – is your chance to kick back, because you’ve earned it.   

Aquarius, Jan 20 – Feb 18

Cancer season stimulates the urge to define our safety zone, the place we feel nurtured and secure, where we feel at home. Home is where the heart is, and this week’s planets in your zone of daily rhythms suggest that elevating ho-hum routines into rituals will enhance your sense of belonging.     

Pisces, Feb 18 – Mar 20

It’s been a brain-bogglingly busy and information-packed month, and this week’s full moon on 22 June brings sweet relief when celestial energies in a fellow water sign settle into an increasingly Fish-friendly flow. Tender emotions are likely to surface during this transit: be choosy about who you share them with.

Aries, Mar 21 – Apr 19

If this week’s confusing cosmic crosscurrents between communicator Mercury, activator Mars, intuitive Neptune, CEO Saturn and pattern-breaking Pluto have you at a crossroads, questioning whether to stay or walk away, Venus suggests taking a breath and pressing the pause button till you’re absolutely sure.   

Taurus, Apr 20 – May 20

Motivator Mars in your somewhat stubborn sign is persistent and determined, backed by this week’s full moon activating your go-getter side. All of which points to an excellent time to approach a mentor, take a training course to upskill, or let Venus do some home renovations and beautification. 

Gemini, May 21 – Jun 20

Note to self: your mentor planet Mercury, currently in mind-changing mode, advises it that your thinking aloud could be challenging for others this week. If you find people unduly crabby or cranky, itchy and scratchy, it’s best not to subject them to every pro and con you’re currently considering.
