Your Daily Horoscopes for June 21

The spinning Earth’s North Pole is at maximum tilt toward the Sun today, marking the Summer Solstice at 1:16 pm EDT. This first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere also marks the Sun’s shift into nurturing Cancer, when long hours of daylight warm us and speed the growth of vegetation. Meanwhile, communicator Mercury runs into a resistant square to strict Saturn, revealing obstacles and making it tough to talk our way around real problems.

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

It’s no fun when someone gets on your case, but you may as well save your complaining for another day. You won’t likely receive a lot of support if an idea of yours cannot stand up to fair criticism. Thankfully, the circumstances aren’t as dire as you think. Your contribution can have significant impact if you’re willing to learn a tough lesson now and stepup your game as needed.

Fortunately, redirecting your thinking process toward real world considerations enables you to set aside extraneous issues and produce more tangible results.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You’re not interested in listening to the cool voice of reason today, yet your options could be limited by the current circumstances. Without an apparent way out of your present dilemma, you might have to get serious now and face the music. This is a critical time because you understand that your casual attitude can’t make a very real problem disappear. Fortunately, sound thinking can.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You may have recently lost any objectivity that you had, yet today your daydreams can run into some cold, hard truths of reality. Unfortunately, you don’t want to leave your fantasies behind, but the longer you avoid your obligations, the more of a challenge it will be to face them in the long run. Starting your work now is smarter than procrastinating any longer.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Reaching your long-term destination might feel impossible today as you try to sort out where you are in your life. But there is no time for self-pity; you have important work to do now.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You may feel as if you’re now being taught a lesson you already know. Unfortunately, your ruling planet Mercury forms a stressful square with taskmaster Saturn today, requiring you to learn what you can, even if it’s uncomfortable. Thankfully, the Sun’s shift into your futuristic 11th house takes your mind off the present moment and aims you toward your goals. Don’t blame others if you have a hard time with criticism. Make the necessary changes within yourself, without trying to change anyone else.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Blind optimism transforms into enlightened realism today as your big ideas collide with a serious dose of the truth. Others may believe that your new and open perspective is more life-affirming than if you shut down your heart in fear. Don’t judge yourself too harshly, for you cannot possibly know what you don’t yet know. The most important thing you can do now is to make the best choices in the present moment before moving on.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may want to have a deep conversation with an intimate friend today, but he or she is able to skillfully avoid talking about something unsettling. Or perhaps you are the one cleverly engineering situations to prevent an uncomfortable topic from coming up. Don’t let this chance to connect with someone you trust slip by; the opportunity to share your feelings will continue to grow throughout the days ahead.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Normally, you are able to see the positive side of nearly anything. You can make just about everything sound better when you are trying to inspire others. Although you get a kick out of banishing gray clouds from the sky, you still might have a tough time today finding something to smile about. Nevertheless, it’s imperative for you to hold on to your unique vision, for your optimism touches more people’s lives than you realize.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your key planet Saturn presents you with a complex dilemma today, for your success appears to be in jeopardy. Your natural reaction is to close down in fear and anticipate the worst.

Your hard work, coupled with a positive outlook, could put you right back in the driver’s seat where you belong.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your approach to your job could turn a notch more serious today as Mercury in your 6th House of Employment dynamically squares sobering Saturn. Think about how you can sustain your recent gains and solidify working relationships. If differences of opinion arise now, there’s no need to force resolution. Rise above the conflict by acknowledging the opposing viewpoints and then moving on to something you can mutually agree upon.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Disagreements with a lover or a playmate can drain you emotionally today, especially if your partner believes that you’re making a fuss over nothing. But your tender feelings may be wounded if someone forgets to respect your wishes and appreciate you for who you are. Resolving discomfort in any relationship still requires your commitment to meet the other person halfway.
