Your June 2023 Tarot Horoscope
The Lovers & 7 of Swords (Reversed)
It’s all about love right now for Aries.
The Lovers centers that theme in an obvious way, bringing in lessons of connection, choices, and leading with the heart. This month is less about the mind and logic and more about what truly goes on within your soul and who moves you and resonates with you.
The 7 of Swords reversed warns against getting ahead too independently, taking shortcuts, or getting caught in the crosshairs of something inauthentic to you. In a month about love and connection, there’s no room for lying, cheating, or taking the easy way out.
Be honest, thorough, and open-hearted; this month, the Universe will reward you.
The High Priestess (Reversed) & 3 of Pentacles
Taurus is attempting to find the truth within themselves, but it’s not as easy as it seems.
The High Priestess reversed forecasts, a bit of a shadow over the intuitive realm. You care about fishing out the spiritual and intuitive truths that are harbored within your heart and soul, but this month it feels like there’s a block over it.
The key will be the 3 of Pentacles, where the cards ask you to seek help and teamwork. Other people may not know the true depths of your heart and all, but working alongside others can sometimes help you feel more connected to the Universe than you initially expected.
Especially within work and career, you may find that partnership and alliances are your keys to success (and inner illumination) this month.
The World & Knight of Cups (Reversed)
Gemini, this month can be rewarding and fulfilling if you take the following advice.
The Knight of Cups reversed warns against acting immaturely regarding matters of the heart. Miscommunications are easy to come by right now if you conceal your emotions too heavily or basically just try to put on a mask in front of others.
The World hints that, ultimately, you have a lot to unveil this month that can be really exciting. Everything is opening up and expanding, and future plans are becoming a little clearer and more accessible than before.
Don’t get caught up in the drama, and remember to stay true to yourself.

Judgement & 6 of Pentacles
Cancer is carefully evaluating what they can healthily give and take this month.
Judgement and the 6 of Pentacles forecast practical and serious topics afoot, indicating that this month may center finances, long-term practical decisions, and group work more heavily.
Time management, teamwork, and figuring out what is fair to give and fair to receive are the themes of the moment. You’re trying to find your footing in the grand scheme of the communities and structures around you, and there may be a little bit of a learning curve too.
But you need to trust your head and heart here — the cards also are suggesting that you know what you’re doing deep down, and you can’t just default to everyone else’s opinion.
The Fool (Reversed) & 7 of Wands (Reversed)
Something funky awaits for Leo as The Fool reversed brings strange, clunky energy into the mix.
Coupled with the 7 of Wands reversed, you may be tempted to rush into many things this month out of fear that you won’t be able to get everything done as you initially desired.
Everything can suddenly feel like an uphill battle, but you’re being urged not to run up that hill too quickly, even if it seems like there’s no other way through. Thinking before you speak and act is actually essential right now, and there’s more time than you think to do that.
We know that the drama seems to love and follow Leo wherever you go, but you don’t have to let it get the best of you this month. Pause, take deep breaths, and survey your surroundings before making unnecessary moves.
The Devil (Reversed) & Ace of Wands (Reversed)
Virgo has a somewhat taxing road ahead this month, but don’t let that discourage you.
The Ace of Wands reversed puts a damper on your sense of drive and ambition and hints that burnout may easily find you this month if you’re not careful. It’s important not to force anything that doesn’t feel fully right.
But The Devil reversed hints that amidst the darkness, you may find that you’re working through hidden baggage and old habits you didn’t know were still lingering. The unproductivity of the moment forces you to focus on what may have been really holding you back.
So while this is not the most exciting set of energies to see, they can still be just as fruitful as any other.
Justice (Reversed) & 2 of Swords
Libra’s vision and clarity are out of focus this month.
Justice reversed, and the 2 of Swords both indicate that you’re at a crossroads and are having a hard time seeing the light. This June, you’re stuck in a decision-making process over and over, even if you feel like you’ve tried to put it all to rest before.
Feeling out of balance and uncertain is frustrating, especially for Libra. You like to keep the peace where possible, and in every aspect of life, it can suddenly feel like everything is undecided and up in the air.
As the sign of the scales, you have to trust that you’ll be able to decide properly whether you can see clearly. The light is not finding you quickly, but it’ll always be there at the end of the tunnel.

The Sun (Reversed) & 9 of Wands
Scorpio is having a hard time trusting themselves and others this month.
You’re known for being a little brooding and skeptical. Still, The Sun reversed, and the 9 of Wands hint that you’re more on edge than usual, cautiously surveying your surroundings with a layer of skepticism that may actually come from internal insecurity.
While it’s okay to think and observe thoroughly before you make your next steps, you need to be certain that you aren’t just surveying everyone cautiously just because you’re afraid of getting hurt or fearful of the unknown.
Your lens being clouded by fear ultimately won’t help you discover the truth either, Scorpio.
The Hanged Man & King of Cups
Sagittarius is collected and reserved this month.
Two keywords describe Sagittarius’ experience this June: insight and emotion. With The Hanged Man, you’re focused on accessing truth and awareness, which sometimes will come with frequent pauses and self-reflection at this time.
Truth and awareness within what, you may ask? Well, the King of Cups brings in that world of emotion. It indicates that you’re focusing on seeing what’s true within your heart and are interested in regaining full control over how your heart and actions align.
This self-reflective period is a little more active and serious than it seems, and on the outside, it may look like you’re just paused in your tracks… but internally, you’re as busy as can be.
The Hierophant (Reversed) & 4 of Cups
Capricorn may be feeling disconnected from their surroundings this month.
The Hierophant reversed shows blocks in areas of authority, structure, and tradition. It can feel like everything that is usually familiar and supportive is now confusing or oppressive.
Plus, the 4 of Cups just shows your general disinterest in everything that’s currently surrounding you. Life isn’t as colorful right now, and you’re having difficulty finding joy in the things that usually spark that feeling.
Don’t force yourself into having fun or being productive right now. Take breaks and allow yourself to creatively and independently rediscover what ignites that inner spark for you, Capricorn.
Death (Reversed) & 2 of Cups (Reversed)
Aquarius may be struggling with the process of transformation that heavily overlays everything in the world right now.
Death reversed illuminates inner conflict when it comes to those changes, as you may not know what you want to change, or maybe you do but are afraid to make the necessary steps.
The 2 of Cups reversed hints that for some Aquarius, it may be because you’re afraid of losing people and outgrowing them. For others, you may just be generally feeling disconnected from your loved ones, and it’s difficult to focus on yourself when you lack that support.
These are tough times, but you need to trust that change will always lead you to a brighter end of the tunnel.
The Tower (Reversed) & Page of Wands
Pisces is reckoning with the worldly changes in their own way, and it’s a bit of a mixed bag.
The Tower reversed articulates some hiccups and frustrations that may come along the journey as you wrestle with how your world is changing around you. Structures are coming undone, and life frankly just feels weird and uncomfortable in the process.
But with the Page of Wands, it’s obvious that there’s still something a bit exciting about it too, and there’s an inner fire that is emerging as you embrace parts of yourself that haven’t been awakened in a while.
Passion and a sense of adventure are coming out of this process too!
2023 is Almost Halfway Done… Now What?
We’re at the midway point of the year, and here is where you can really make things count.
If you haven’t been living the life you want in 2023 up until this point, here is where you can make dramatic changes and hit the Universe back with a plot twist — everyone loves a good turning point and transformation!
Plus, change is afoot with the current astrological energy on the table anyway. And you can now use your Tarotscope combined with that information to flow with the changes you want to make.
What next steps will you be making to take life into your own hands?
