June begins with the Sun in Gemini ... which has its plusses and minuses. One of the challenges is that this diverse sign tends to scatter energy and attention, which does not correspond with your more careful ways of doing business. On the other hand, this transit is occurring in your 10th House of Career where it can earn you attention and add to your responsibilities. The trick is to address these issues in private conversations where you can explain your needs without attracting attention.
Your communicative ruling planet, Mercury, is in sensitive Cancer all month, which tends to make all discussions feel personal. Dealing with facts alone is not enough to make your case because emotions are likely to play a key role in others' responses to you. If you can be kind and show that you care about your work and about the other people involved, you can gain some trust and intimacy that is so valuable at this time. Mercury's presence in your 11th House of Friends and Colleagues is about gaining allies. But you have to be willing to open up if you expect others to care about you.
The Gemini New Moon on June 8 might stimulate fresh ideas about your career. Considering alternative ways to advance in your current position or even thinking about another line of work is possible. But if you're offered an opportunity, take your time to really mull it over before saying yes. Mercury turns retrograde on June 26 and you may discover that you weren't told the full story.
