Hey girlbosses, creatives, entrepreneurs, multipassionates: here are your tarotscopes for June 2016.
Specifically, these tarotscopes are cast with your work life in mind: thinking about the projects on your plate this month and how you can best approach them. Read the horoscope for your sun and rising signs, or, if you’re feeling it, for your business’ sun and rising signs. (Order a Business Birth Chart here.)
The deck I used for these 'scopes is the Shadowscapes deck.
The High Priestess
Last month, the Ace of Wands. For June, The High Priestess -- asking you to gut-check your latest Ace of Wands idea and really sit with it before moving forward.
The High Priestess doesn't look like a card that asks us to sit. She's powerful. She flies. She goes between worlds.
But she is asking you, Aries, to sit. To do some self-examination. To make sure that your latest new business plan is in line with your values, with your beliefs, with your soul. To do some work and figure out what your beliefs are these days.
The direction of your work will be all the more powerful for it.

You've got the energy of having just been in your season, and in spite of still combatting retrograde planets, you're reinvigorated for this next month. To put it colloquially, there's a fire under your ass.
Enter The Chariot. In the season of Gemini, and with constant temptations to curious distraction, The Chariot asks you, where are you directing your renewed energy? Your renewed vigor? Your new ideas, your new plans? You're going to get somewhere, because you have the force of will and inspiration right now, but you will be even stronger if you direct that energy towards a goal.
Take some time to do some journaling, freewriting, dictating, visualizing. Where do you want to be on June 30? Start with your goal and work backwards.
Pro Tip: the Moon is in Taurus on June 2 - prime time to do some digging.

This is your season, Gemini... and you're laying low. You're in a space of deep, slow processing around your ideas, your creativity, and your business, and The Hermit is popping up to remind you to take all the time you need. Sometimes, insight comes through interaction, but sometimes, it comes through slipping away, though self-care, through turning inward.
We might be feeling the heat of summer, but The Hermit is encouraging you to slow down. Read a book at the park, or on the beach. Step back from your business, step back from your blog, step back from your creative work. Write. Think. Meditate. It'll be there when you get back - and remember, last month's 9 of Pentacles reminded all of us just what a badass boss you are. Have faith that the work will be there, waiting for your return.

4 of Pentacles
After last month's Tower, we have recovery. Slow, methodical gathering. Circling the wagons in order to heal.
The 4 of Pentacles tells of a time of drawing your material resources close to you. This can be a time of healing, of assessing, of determining where to go from here. But the risk is in staying in this place too long, in recovering to the point where you are only self-protecting, refusing to go out of your crab-like shell.
Now that you know who you are and what you have, don't be afraid to show yourself to others. Plus, Mercury goes into Cancer later this month, providing an optimal time to communicate the shifts and changes you've experienced with sensitivity and understanding.

3 of Wands
June presents a crossroads of sorts. Your new path is presenting itself, slowly and surely. But you are not entirely sure of yourself in embarking on this path -- and so, last month's lessons of Strength come into play.
Can you endure to sit with the pain of breaking apart at the crossroads and coming back together again, as the Three of Wands asks of us? You, Leo, are not just looking to a new direction -- moving forward at this juncture requires a reworking, a reweaving, of your life.
Be encouraged, Leo: there is sun. This is a reworking that happens in the light. Walk with assurance and with hope.

7 of Pentacles
The Seven of Pentacles is a card for you, Virgo, if ever there was one. The Seven of Pentacles asks you to assess your latest project -- it may well be ready to move forward this month.
The caution of this card is to wait until your idea, your project, your proposal is truly ready -- and then, to not wait too long to move forward. There is an art to this kind of timing, that you, Virgo, are especially well suited to. You understand the details, the nitty gritty, the way that life's subtle shifts work together.
Use your trademark attentiveness to your benefit, Virgo. It will help you ground your communications while Mercury flits from chatty Gemini to emotional Cancer this month.

10 of Wands
All the retrograde energy of the last month has left you feeling heavy, weighted, burdened. Perhaps because you've been putting off plans until we are in a retrograde-free space? Remember that while there's wisdom in timing, it's your effort and unique attention that ultimately move your life's needle forward. Don't feel constrained by the universe - understand that there is so much to work with (even when Mars is retrograde!).
The promise of the 10 of Wands is looking forward. The promise is that this feeling of overwhelm is temporary. The promise is that you have deep roots and a strong back that will see you through the trying times. (Seriously, look up the 10 of Wands from the Shadowscapes deck, Libra - it's inspiring.)

A curious card for you, Scorpio: the sun is not a place you are used to being. The shadows, the depths, the complications: this is Scorpio's terrain. Even now, Mars is in Scorpio - and it's retrograde (though, notably, going direct on the 29th).
So what is The Sun asking of you this month, as we embark on the summer season? The Sun is shining a direct light on the places you are comfortable hiding. Where you are comfortable being hidden, being quiet, not pushing yourself, not stretching yourself, not growing.
The Sun says, come into the light. The Sun says, grow. The Sun says, I have you.
The Sun asks why you would prefer to stay in darkness.

Something isn't serving you, Sagittarius. Last month, the 8 of Swords. This month, The Tower.
It's time to let go.
Your foundation is due for a shake-up - and one of major proportions. Don't be afraid. Whatever is crumbling has been crumbling for a while, and with all that mutable fire energy, you know where to start rebuilding. (Though my guess is, you may want to enjoy freedom for a little while, Sag, even if the freedom is in the residual silver lining of The Tower's demise.)
Take a few breaths. Do a New Moon ritual on June 4. Plus, the New Moon in Gemini will be conjunct Venus - do some heart opening exercises to dig into how you can best plant seeds in the black dirt left over from your Tower moment.

Last month Judgement, this month Justice. You, Cap, are in a serious time of self-evaluation: of weighing the scales and examining the patterns in your life. Fitting, given that Gemini season is a time of transition.
More than anything, this is a period of waiting. Justice does not come swiftly; she lies in wait, measures time, makes pro/con lists, asks friends for insight. Justice takes a slow, holistic approach to your problems.
Patience, Cap. Not your strong suit -- but your choices now have long-term effects.

Knight of Swords
Now is the time for swift, decisive action... or is it? You're continuing on last month's journey of the Two of Wands, and you may have found your answer, your path, your final destination.
The beauty of being in a Knight of Swords phase is the strength of your conviction and the sharpness of your mental acuity. But Mars is still retrograde, Aquarius - check yourself before you wreck yourself with that impulsive new idea (or project, or product) that you absolutely, 100% believe is needed.
Mars goes direct on the 29th - sit on your latest conviction and world-domination plan until then. If your idea can outlast the Knight of Swords, it's worthy.

Six of Cups
The Six of Cups is all about looking back, about innocence, about childhood, about play. The visual representation of this card in the Shadowscapes deck is of a little girl having a tea party with her stuffed animals, deep in the forest.
June is a time of retreat and remembrance for you, Pisces. Other signs may be retreating so that they may look forward; you are retreating so that you may look back - and learn. And if you're feeling a little chaotic, that's understandable: there's a Grand Mutable Cross happening this first week of June, intensified by the New Moon in Gemini, which is setting mutable energy off like firecrackers. As mutable water, you are especially sensitive to the shifting energies, emotionally and spiritually, that will be surrounding us in the coming weeks.
Use this time of remembrance to stay grounded. And ground yourself physically with writing, with art, with making.
