June ushers at the beginning of the hazy, lazy days of summer. It may not be hot enough to sunbathe daily, but with five planets in retrograde by the end of the month, life is definitely downshifting. The lag with mars will be felt instantly due to that heavenly body usually promoting motivation and action.

There’s a minor halo in productivity from June 26 to August 27, during which misunderstandings ensue or couples postpone intimate moments.

The good news: People are restoring their energy and reevaluating their next steps. The bad news: Impatience grows where calm may be needs most. Everything happens for reasons beyond our understanding.
