June 2019 Full Moon Tarotscopes
Welcome to the Full Moon of June! It rises full on June 17th, in the sign of Sagittarius. This Full Moon is just before the Summer Solstice, so you may wish to honor both. June is the month of Pride, of Juneteeth. We still have so much to change, so much to protest. There is a feeling of resistance wrapped up in celebration. Let us tap into our collective histories to remind us to stay present on both the individual and the whole.
For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the sun is shining and the crickets sing all night. There’s beach days and ice tea and strawberry sorbet. We worship this Full Moon easily, as the nights are so warm and the Moon is so bright. This is a Full Moon about living. This is a Full Moon to focus on the whys of our lives. About who we need to be now, about who we need to protect. This is a time to think about your enjoyment, about small pleasures. About how they can get us through the hard stuff.
And, last but not least, because of this Full Moon’s proximity to the Solstice, you may wish to spend time reflecting on dark and light; shadows and shadow integration. This is the last Full Moon before eclipse season, which can sometimes shake things up. Remember that this summer might be a rocky one—try to keep yourself aligned, and have your actions resonate with love, bravery, protection and protest.
Personally, with the year half over, it is time for us all to think about the future seriously. Make plans (or spells) around where you wish to be by the next Solstice. Go backwards from there and commit to the energies and qualities you will need to make your dreams happen, and yourself moving forward.
The Tarotscopes below contain channelled advice and insight for your astrological sign, based on the Tarot card that was pulled for you just before this Full Moon. Read your sun, moon, rising, or any other you feel drawn to. Take what you need and leave the rest.

9 of Cups
Aries, believe it or not, the same card as last month has been pulled for you! It’s the beautiful 9 of Cups. And what a wonderful card to get twice in a row. The message is clear: keep doing what you are doing. Do your best to continue welcoming in growth, welcoming in your dreams. Shake off the doubt that can come with a streak of sweetness.
When there is the same archetype pulled twice in a row, there are other aspects here to consider—culmination and integration. Consciously integrate the belief that you can have what you want, that your boundaries are beautiful. By the fall, a phase of your life will be ending. This could be around emotional healing, around finally understanding your worth. Take this time to enjoy all the soft rainbows that are enveloping you now. There are as many lessons in sweetness as there are in pain.
Suggested spell ingredients: a bestie necklace you buy for yourself to commemorate your greatest love affair yet, an afternoon spent floating in a body of water, and an altar devoted to your dreams.
3 of Pentacles
Taurus, this summer is all about stepping into new roles for you, and this Full Moon is all about connecting to feelings of worthiness, peace, and abundance. That’s what will pave your way forward. What you have to say is important on a larger level. Get your mission statements and ideas out of your head and into the world.
Your work is absolutely poised to transform.
I want to make a caveat here: the “work” doesn’t just refer to your career, even though it could. The “work” is about your growth, about your magic, about your heart, about your devotion, about your intellect, about your relationships. The “work” is about new combinations. The “work” is about what you need to express, and who you need to express it to. It’s just as much about how you are working as it is why you are. The “work” is about allowing as much in as it is about pushing where things don’t fit. The work at this Full Moon just might be opening up enough to let others help you help yourself.
Suggested spell ingredients: petrified wood, tiger’s eye, a new bell to help you meditate, and a blueprint of the world you wish to inhabit.
2 of Wands
Twin Star, you are all lit up! As this Full Moon lands as we wrap up Gemini season, it is both a and a bright new beginning for you. The 2 of Wands wants you to focus on where you are going, not where you’ve been. Your Full Moon magic is about summoning every ounce of enthusiasm, every drop of hope you’ve got within to charter your own course. This Full Moon promises you’ve got everything you need. Make bold moves that will eventually make you big money. Make big moves that will create big magic.
Make important decisions out of love and creativity. Not fear or shame.
If it is novel, if it is interesting, if it allows you to flex your creativity: that’s the spark you follow.
There could be pulls to go the same old way. There could be pressure to stay put. These impulses can be seductive, however you must resist the tendency to go for the tried and true. You want experiences that are going to open you all the way up. You want to be known for your biggest dreams, not your back-up plans.
This Full Moon is a reminder of who you truly are when you are connected to your fire. Make sure you bask in the glory of your own glow.
Suggested spell ingredients: a fun day-trip, a fun night-trip, carnelian, sunstone, basil iced tea charged with moonlight, and messages in bottles designed to eventually wash up on different shores.
7 of Pentacles
Cancer, this is a Full Moon to get out of your head and into your body. You need to make a decision in more than one area of your life, but ruminating to excess is just going to create more conflict. This Full Moon is telling you that you need to take a break from doing things in the same way. A pause, a rest, another way to read in-between the lines of your life. This is a Full Moon to get out of your emotions, and into the sensations that magic can offer you.
Shake it up, Sweet Moonchild. Do you need to do a spell outside? Do you need to dance all night? Do you need to play with poetry? With singing? With a new herb? What spell can you cast next week that you’ve never done, but always wanted to?
After this, you might have more luck with figuring out what needs to stay, and what needs to go. If you have a good friend or two, and you can handle it, ask them to get real with you because there’s something you aren’t seeing at the moment. It could be you are habitually over-focusing on things that aren’t bringing you results you want; it could be you are over-focusing on things you no longer need. You’ve outgrown a number of areas in your life, so something needs to go. Start there. If you can’t decide, start with remembering that you can change.
Change your perspective and change everything.
Suggested spell ingredients: green apple opal, malachite, a heart-to-heart with a favorite plant, abundance spells, and root magic.
3 of Cups
If there ever was a Full Moon to create a feast and have your loved ones over, it is this one, Leo. The wonderful people that have been appearing in your life since the Spring Equinox are external reflections of all the growth that has been happening inside of your heart. Over time, abundant collaborations may come of these connections—this might even be happening already. This Full Moon time is ripe for synchronicities, and these will only come if you go out into the world to greet them. Take at least 3 times this week to go somewhere pleasurable, to do something that will require you to engage with others. Show up. Share yourself. Remember that the joy you are given by others is in direct proportion to the joy you are equipped to gift freely.
The Moon is Full and the word is Love.
Suggested spell ingredients: matching mugs or bowls for you and your besties that you give out at a friendship ritual, a chalice charged with moonwater, and a bit of lemon quartz to put on your altar.
8 of Cups
There’s being a kind, fair person and then there’s being a doormat. Virgo, it is up to you to decide if you’ve been staying too long—staying too long in certain relationships that just aren’t evolving; staying stuck in patterns that leave you depleted and those around you fed; staying in emotional loops that don’t affirm how absolutely brilliant you are. And yes, these tendencies could all absolutely be only with yourself; a distraction tool your subconscious has created to keep you feeling safe, or like a martyr. If you catch yourself playing yourself, ask yourself why.
There could also be some external events that are causing you to start packing your metaphorical bags. Whatever might be going on outside you is relying on what is inside of you to change. It’s okay to walk away, even if the amount of energy you’ve invested in a certain belief or relationship has been enormous.
This is a Moon that pertains to your spiritual and intuitive transformation. It is truly up to you to define success—more specifically, what spiritual success means to you. Now. In this very moment. Take the time at this Full Moon to touch it, feel it, taste it. Take this time to get clear on what you are journeying towards and what it will consist of when you find it. Let this Full Moon move you into an entirely different arena; one that is truly about getting to the master level with yourself.
Suggested spell ingredients: a turned-off phone, kunzite, lapis lazuli, a loving-kindness meditation, and a new pair of shoes.
Ace of Swords
Opportunities abound for you at this Full Moon, Scorpio if you can look inward. Your mind is absolutely powerful and your communication style is ready to be assessed. It can be hard to take a step back and really observe ourselves: what we say, internally and externally. But this is what you must do if you are interested in growing in the way the Ace of Swords asks you to currently.
What is up for growth at this time is your power. Your personal power, the power of influence you have, the powerful ways in which you wield your tongue. Observe yourself in all manners of language. Would you want to hang out with your mind, if your mind was a person? When you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts about yourself, try asking: is this true? When you catch yourself about to say something defensive or reactionary, try asking: will this ultimately be helpful? When you are making decisions both large and small, ask the question: will this add to my personal power?
Watch your language.
Do not turn away from any impulses you have to write, to speak, to channel.Do not turn down any and all chances to share your power.
Suggested spell ingredients: the dictionary app, fire breathing, mookaite, mahogany obsidian, dalmatian stone, peppermint, and birdsong—both natural or recorded.

Sometimes as we get older, we can become set in our ways. We can forget that we are eternally students. This Full Moon is asking you to step back into being a student in one or more areas of your life.
Ask yourself: what do I want to learn? How can I start architecting my life around what I wish to be a student of?
Combine what you already know or are good at, with what you are curious about. This is a Full Moon around new ways of thinking, reacting, communicating. One way to break the curse of limiting beliefs is with curiosity. The recipe in that fresh, new cauldron consists of one part attained knowledge, one part questioning, and one part mystery. Stir them up and see how the Full Moon alchemizes these elements.
Last but not least, air angel: listen. Listen. Messages are coming through to you, multiple times a day. Make it a priority to carve out space to listen to these messages without prejudice. Wrapped within a whisper might be the next great project of your life.
Suggested spell ingredients: a cluster of clear quartz, a new blank notepad, and the energy of clouds and birds and angels and the wind.

When the going gets tough, the tender hearts stay grounded. Gentle Archer, you are being asked to really live out your values right now. There could be some external events you that are causing a bit of derailment at the moment. Sagittarius, even when life is swirling and whirling around you, come back to yourself. Remember what you know to be true. Get into your body, and your body will help give you answers and guidance.
There’s a saying: “secure the bag.” To me, this means going after what you truly want and desire. It’s obtaining something meaningful and overflowing with value. This has been your focus, and every week you get closer to embodying this. There has been one precious component of this quest that you might have been forgetting, especially if there’s been a lot of distraction in your zone.
At this Full Moon, remember that you are the bag. Secure yourself.
Suggested spell ingredients: gold flakes in a small vial you charge under this Full Moon, time spent earthing (putting your bare feet on the earth), ways to express your magic, and an indigo blue forcefield you imagine around yourself at all times.
Sweet, strong Capricorn—this is a Full Moon that corresponds with your future and the way forward. A lot of your planning has been coming to fruition. Use the energy of achievement and accomplishment to lesson any resistance you have around continuing. This Full Moon is the time to cast spells around what you want to be happening in your world by the beginning of December 2019. If you stay organized, and stay the course, you will absolutely see the results of your efforts. These results will be the reward of more time, more satisfaction, and more impact.
The phrase “take a break” might not be in your vocabulary, so I’m going to try saying this message in a different way. Believe it or not, you can get a lot more done than you ever thought by scheduling in rest, pleasure, and creativity into your days. Switch up your day-to-day routine so that the basics of what you need to feel inspired keep showering you with reminders of why you are alive. There could be one or more tasks or roles you’ve simply outgrown. If that is the case, commit to moving those organically out of your life by the next Full Moon in July.
This is also a Full Moon around how you are being seen. You need to be seen by others as exactly as you are. If there are things you are holding back on sharing, if there are treasures you are hiding from others, it’s time. Shine, share, glow.
Suggested spell ingredients: carnelian, Maca, a long to-do list for your soul, and all the permission slips you need to take up more space in your life and in the world.
Beautiful Water Bearer, here’s a loving heads up: this Full Moon could feel like a bit of a scorcher. Drink loads of water, if you need to rest—rest, and find ways to support yourself physically and mentally around this Full Moon and the next few weeks. It’s ok to take time for yourself. In fact, it is suggested.
When the Judgement card comes up, it’s time to stop and hear the call. You can’t hear any messages if you’ve got three different podcasts going at the same time, thirty-two tabs open on your browser, and are running from social engagement to obligation to work to bed.
If a lot has been coming up for as of late, pay attention. For some of you, they are indicators of what is ready to heal. For some of you, they are indicators of what is no longer working. And focusing on what is ready to heal, combined with ending what is no longer working, is the magic for you to dig into at this Full Moon.
If this all seems like a lot, start small. Pick one thing that used to bring you joy, and do it. Pick one pattern or habit you need to let go of, and strategize what you need to do to stop reverting to it. Pick one way you can tap into your Higher Self, that will grant you mercy and grace and forgiveness as you navigate through the miracle of resurrecting yourself.
Suggested spell ingredients: jet stone, rose quartz, a past life meditation, space, time, compassion, and faith.
The Knight of Wands
Lovely Cosmic Dreamer, keep going. So much of your year so far as been about seeking, searching, moving. About learning, growing, saying yes and saying no. It can be hard to be the initiator. It can be difficult to keep it moving; getting back on the horse of your vision as many times as you get thrown off. Your secret weapon is how tenacious and brave you truly are, because you swim in the sea of universal understanding and love.
You’ve been deep in a process and most likely by now, you can feel the wheel turning. The Knight of Wands wants you to make this leg of the journey all about you, and all about what gives you pleasure. You might have forgotten, but fun is part of the process you’re in. If it isn’t pleasurable, if you can’t express your unique creativity, then what’s the point?
At this Full Moon, keep it simple and keep it creative. Keep it related to your movement, and joy, and the art of life. Put on your favorite record and make a delicious meal. Make eyes at someone really cute. Start that art project. Or finish that art project! Do something around this Full Moon that reminds you of how gorgeous and how cool you are. Put it on your altar and ask for more under the light of this Full June Moon.
Suggested ingredients: joy, pleasure, creativity, honey calcite, a red candle, wheels, circles, and art.
