The Sag Eclipse on June 5th is everything you didn’t know you needed in your love and sex life, Aries. You’ve been seeking something or someone to light a fire under your ass and make things fun again. This month, is it. Since your ruler Mars, spends almost all month in Pisces, your sector of spirituality and healing will be activated, and you’ll be more likely to seek long-term connections rather than short-lived affairs. However, since Venus, the Planet of Love, is also retrograde in dualistic Gemini for most of the month, just when you think you’ve gotten into a certain groove in your relationship, you may all of a sudden change your mind and act in a brand new way with your lover, crush or bae. It may drive both of you wild, particularly for each other. Mind games are sexy for you, Aries, but you’ll have to watch your limits this month. With so many planets retrograde, your actions, thoughts and desires can easily be misconstrued, leaving you and others feeling sexually and emotionally frustrated. No one wants that. Gift yourself what you want and shy away from what (or who) you don’t want.
Mercury’s presence in Cancer activates your sector of home, the past, and your roots. Mercury goes retrograde on the 17th of this month, but you’ll feel the pre-shadow effects as soon as the month begins. It’s quite likely that you’ll find yourself fantasizing about sex and connections with someone from your past, whether you actually want to reach back out to them or not. Chances are though, Aries, you do miss them, and Mercury Retrograde will make it so hard to not let them know that. You may be feeling conflicted, because with Chiron, the Wounded Healer, in your sign until 2026, you’re learning how to let go of your attraction to what’s not necessarily that good for you, or what you may not necessarily be that good for. You tend to attract complicated relationships because you seek challenge and adventure, but this month you’ll have to challenge yourself if you find yourself wanting to have sex with someone or entertain them just because the sex is bomb, but the emotional depth is lacking.
Since Venus, the Planet of Love, will be retrograde most of the month, you may be curious to think back to periods when you were most sexually fulfilled. Don’t focus as much on the person you were dating during those moments, but mainly focus on your relationship with yourself, and who you were at the time. There’s something about the way you took care of yourself that was erotic in itself, and this month you may realize you were the missing piece you were looking for. You may have thought you were looking for orgasmic fulfilling in your partner, crush, or could-be lover. And yes, it’s quite possible that their energy, touch and physical merging can bring you bliss and pleasure. But you’ll realize, particularly during Cancer Season and the Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse, that you were the one you were looking for all along. The more you turn yourself on this month, the better your relationships become.
Ways to turn yourself on? Minimize your use of technology this month and have fun staring at your naked body more often. Touch yourself in the shower, in the bathtub, in bed. Write yourself a love note naming all the physical and non-physical things you love about yourself. Take intimate nudes, just for your eyes to see. Once the Sun shifts into Cancer around the same time as the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer, your sector of roots and family will be activated, and there’s a high likelihood that you’ll either deepen an existing sexual relationship with someone who fully admits that they want to be with you and are mesmerized by you, or you’ll attract a new relationship with someone within six months of this eclipse — it all depends on the sexual and emotional intentions you decide to set during the final ten days of June.
Speaking of the final days of June, on the 27th, Mars, your ruling planet, will shift out of Pisces, where it’s been activating your spirituality and healing sector for the past six weeks, and it will enter your sign, where it remains for the next six weeks. You might experience the best sex and sexts of your life once Mars enters your sign, so circle June 27th – 30th as orgasmic dates.
