WELCOME TO JUNE

A Month of Dual Energies and Emotional Depth

As we step into the vibrant month of June, we embrace the unique blend of energies brought by Gemini and Cancer, the two zodiac signs that define this period. June is a time of dynamic communication, intellectual curiosity, and deep emotional connections.

From May 21 to June 20, we are under the influence of Gemini, the Air sign ruled by Mercury. This period is characterised by a surge in social interactions, adaptability, and a thirst for knowledge.
