Star signs and cannabis strains: June 2020 horoscopes
Well, stargazers, it is officially Gemini season! Because these gregarious Gemini babes rarely like to do things alone, take a page from their book and invite the month of June to bring you some deep connectivity with the ones you love.
Beware though, because Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune all have retrograde periods in the month of June. The retrograde motion is most often associated with negative turmoil, but, with the right attitude and mindset, you can use this backward motion to shake things up in a productive way.
June 20 is also the Summer Solstice, which means the Earth’s energy is at its peak this month. Use the inertia of the Solstice and the warm, Twin vibes to carry you into the summer with a smile on your face and a joint in your hand.

Your rulers, Mars and Pluto, will be experiencing two opposite motions this month, which might leave you feeling a little off-kilter.
Mars is one of the only planets in direct motion, meanwhile Pluto is in retrograde the entire month. Try to be open-minded with the people you love, especially during this time of upheaval and turmoil. Your power is potent, and people will be digging their heels in deep to stay close to your side.

Your ambition is the stuff of legend, Capricorn. You’re one of the hardest working signs in the Zodiac, but the retrograde of your ruler, Saturn, for the entire month of June will test your resolve. Don’t take it too personally, you sea-faring goat. With nearly every planet assuming a backward motion during this Gemini season, you’ll be in good company when it comes to feeling out of sorts.
Mercury begins its retrograde on June 18. Be especially prepared for your inner circle to become tumultuous. Petty grievances will crawl out of the woodwork and you’ll be tempted to make rash decisions regarding your relationships. Hold on tight and don’t do anything you’ll regret 30 days from now. Withdrawing during this period is completely understandable.
The new moon in Cancer on June 21 will refresh and invigorate you. Cultivate some mindfulness during the second half of the month and allow your friends the space to work out some of their harder feelings.

Capricorns are known for their practicality and level-headed thinking. These traits are typically in high demand during a retrograde, and with so much backward motion going down with the planetary rulers, you’ll probably have people forming a line out the door for your advice and ear.
Be careful what advice you give and to whom you give it. Be a smooth operator. Pack a bowl of Big Smooth for a doughy taste and a happy high. Its warm and fuzzy feelings will bring a heavy dose of relaxation too. Just what the planets ordered!
Aquarius, you might be one of the only signs destined to have a smooth month, thanks to your ruler, Uranus, being in direct motion for all of June. The same cannot be said for a majority of the other signs, whose planets are scheduled to enter retrograde at some point during the month.
That said, don’t get too boastful just yet. Mercury begins its retrograde on June 18. Expect some strange interactions with your innermost circle. Old grudges tend to surface during this period, but don’t give in to desires to air them. They’ll soon be forgotten again.
The new moon is in Cancer on June 21 and the Summer Solstice is on June 20, so you should experience new levels of energy around this time. Commit to your physical and emotional health toward the end of the month. Set and establish good self-care routines that will carry you through the hottest months of the year. Air signs tend to feel changes in energy and mood sooner than the other signs. Remember to not get carried away by a wind of change this month, Water-Bearers.
You lucked out this month, Aquarius. Stay out of the fray and you should be able to coast through June mostly unscathed. Place high value on your health, especially your mental health, during the Gemini season. Ground yourself in some kind of daily ritual.

Neptune, your ruler, is in direct motion for the first half of the month, Fishes. Use this period to get your affairs in order and to build trust in your intuition because you’re going to need it. When Neptune enters into retrograde on June 23, you’ll be tempted to abandon some well-established boundaries. Don’t let people walk all over you in June, Fishes.
On June 11, the Sun forms a square with Neptune. A strong ego in your inner circle may try to knock you down, but you’re prepared for it. Take whatever time you need to re-establish your self-confidence. Remember, nearly every planet is in retrograde, so everyone is dealing with their own emotional trash fire this month.
That’s not to say your presence won’t be missed! The penumbral lunar eclipse on June 5 also offers another chance to recommit and renew faith in yourself and the path ahead. Don’t waver because someone close says you can’t do what you set out to do. Your gut won’t lead you astray this month, if you don’t let it.
You’ve already proven you can swim in rough seas, Fishes. So, take a break. Don’t worry if your DMs get a little crowded this month; no one will be angry that you take time for yourself.

Hello, righteous Rams! June will be filled to the brim with opportunity for you, if you know where to look for it, and especially if you can learn to ride the wild motions of the planets during Gemini season.
There is a June 5 penumbral lunar eclipse in Sagittarius. This celestial activity isn’t just beautiful, it’s an invitation to clean house. If there are certain aspects of your personal development you’ve been afraid to address head on, now is the time.
It’s true, growth is painful, but you don’t need to reinvent the wheel all alone. Lean on your network this month. The backward motion of so many planets grinds on Rams like an emotional cheese grater. You are more susceptible to the less pleasant feelings of a retrograde than most.
This is especially true when Mercury goes retrograde on June 18. Be ready for some tough conversations in your professional sphere. Get inventive when it comes to self-promotion and you can turn these pain points into personal wins. Your ruling planet, Mars, enters your house on June 28. Enjoy this period of peace and emotional alignment as you head deeper into the summer season.
Retrogrades, right? Listen, there are two kinds of strains you need to concern yourself with this month: the strain of the planetary motions, sure, but more importantly you need to concern yourself with the right strain of kush to carry you through.
Lavender is a strain that comes from pedigree and its mellow effects are strong and long lasting. This is the perfect bedtime bud, but it can also be ideal for that evening smoke after dinner. Smokers report pain relief and tons of relaxation from this aptly named purple bud.
Beautiful Bulls, you will be a beacon of stability during the wild, planetary ride that is the month of June. The full moon (and eclipse) will be in Sagittarius on June 5. This event is not only visually stunning, it’s cleansing too. If you’ve been collecting material possessions in abundance during this extended period of being home, consider shedding your closets and drawers of things you don’t need. You’ll feel lighter all around.
Your ruling planet, Venus, is in retrograde from June 1-25. If you’ve been craving intimacy lately, this is not the time to do anything without cautious consideration. Unfortunately, the Venus retrograde can bring out the truly unsavory side in romantic prospects. Just guard your heart during Gemini season, Taurus. Focus on friends and family and you’ll weather this month better than most.
The Summer Solstice on June 20 will bring energy and commitment to your professional endeavors. Try taking on projects that draw you out of your comfort zone. You’ll be so glad you did.
You’re the stuff dreams are made of, Taurus. And you’ll be giving a lot more than receiving this month, thanks to a back-to-back month of retrogrades that will throw your inner circle for a loop. So, treat yourself, loyal Bull.
Roll up some Dream Queen and float off to La La Land on a cloud and a wish. Your beauty rest will be essential in June. This strain is peppery with just a hint of invigorating mint. A sativa-dominant bud, Dream Queen is perfect for cooking up big ideas.
