WEEK OF June 12 – 1 8, 2023
“Take it down a notch” isn’t something we’d ever suggest to you, o’ intense one. But as prudent Saturn shifts into reverse in Pisces and your flirty and flamboyant fifth house on Saturday, June 17, you may naturally lower the volume on your “live-out-loud” activities. Over the next four and a half months, you could become even MORE discerning with seductions, declarations of affection and actual PDAs.
Just be prepared to deliver the goods on anything you announce or promote. Saturn is the timekeeper of the zodiac, and its M.O. is slow, steady and effective, meaning this would be the perfect WRONG time to rush anything to the finish line just to meet a random deadline. As they say, you don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression, so make it your business to dazzle right out of the gate.
Saturn likes stability, but when it’s in reverse in your fifth house, you could hit a hurdle with a love interest, so don’t try to just muscle through it. Use this as an opportunity to reconnect to your own creativity and passions. Saturn’s gift is demonstrating how solid structures within a relationship—and mutual commitment—keep the sparks alive. And this doesn’t have to be boring! Consider inaugurating a weekly dress-up date night and take turns surprising each other with dazzling events. Sign up for a couples’ workshop (Vietnamese cooking? Tantric massage?!).

The fifth house is your fertility zone, but during this retrograde, you may need to call upon that Saturnian patience if you’ve got bambinos on the brain. If that “kid” is a creative brainchild, use Saturn’s retrograde to develop your mission behind the scenes. If you need to strengthen an aspect of the mission, from PR to branding, step off the playground and enroll yourself in “kindergarten” with an expert mentor or coach.
Sunday, June 18 (late night June 17 in some places), heralds the year’s only new moon in Gemini, which lands in your seductive, intimate eighth house. Your animal magnetism will be fierce over the next two weeks, so dole out that charm judiciously, heartbreaker. For many Scorpios, this is business as usual, but be forewarned that the urge to merge could overpower your desire to do much else. And it’s not like one night of ecstasy will keep that itch scratched! This isn’t just about “the deed”; thanks to the galvanizing energy of this lunation, you want to connect with a lover on a physical, emotional and soul level.
If you’re in a solid relationship, this could be the tipping point where you decide to either go all in or say sayonara. Single? Perhaps not for much longer! This lunar lift can put you right back in the game. Which makes it all more essential to decide whether you’re holding out for “the one” or if you’re open to some erotic action you want to allow while you’re waiting for your soul mate to show up. Now, that COULD happen over the next two weeks—peak manifesting time for new moons. But give it until November 27 and the corresponding Gemini full moon. During that time, reflect on all those major love lessons you’ve learned as well as the mistakes you’re never going to repeat.
