June Fire Element Horoscope

If you live near a lake or the ocean, be on the lookout for dragon boat races; they are fun and exciting to watch!

Dragon boat racing is a 2,000 year old tradition; in Chinese culture the dragon represents good fortune—it is the strongest, the most yang, of all the animals in the Chinese horoscope.

Before the festival begins, parents prepare colorful silk pouches strung on silk threads that are filled with herbs. During the festival, the pouches are hung around kids’ necks or tied to their garments as a charm to protect them from evil. Steamed rice dumplings, or zongzi, are a traditional Dragon Festival food that is filled with meat, or red beans, and wrapped in bamboo leaves.

In the west, Father’s Day and the summer solstice both arrive on the 20th. June’s luxuriant Fire influence is a constructive, creative, and positive force that creates many possibilities for development and success. Remember however that excessive Fire can also burn and consume, so we must do our best to channel this powerful energy wisely. In the meantime, be on the lookout for interesting new possibilities—who knows what exciting things could happen! 

We hope that because of all the constructive energy that is heading our way, the world is beginning its recovery from Covid. Give your dad a big hug on Father’s Day and check out what this month’s horoscope has to say about your upcoming health, emotions, relationships, career, and finances.

Double Fire energy can help you get things done, so think about the day ahead while you are still in bed. Figure out how to bring more joy into your life. Wear red. Do something nice for someone else and then do something nice for yourself. Take time to be goofy and giggle. Dance and work up a sweat. Watch something funny because joy is a natural expression of your energy.

Financial Health

Just remember that emotions can color reality in Fire people, so it is always wise for you to look before you leap.
