Four planets are retrograde in June including Mercury. June 7-July 1st. With that many retrogrades, it's a natural omen telling people to slow down and do things carefully. Also, the kind of projects people are into in June tend to require extra planning and preparation, and going slow but steady will work the best.
It's an excellent time to revise plans and do any re-doing that needs done. Now we can get pointed in a more successful direction.
You don't often see the conclusion of things in Mercury retrograde periods. If a person doesn't see concrete signs of success in June, they should remember how far they've come, rather than focus on what hasn't happened yet. The stars can cause us to vacillate between optimism and doubt about our big goals. Whatever you're trying to accomplish, try working through the mood swings.
Mercury retrograde in Cancer puts a focus on your home, the past, and family. It's a good time to reconnect with your roots. Cancer rules the stomach, and you can feel what's truly important to you more keenly. In the way Mercury retrograde has us look inward, you gain insight into how you've grown and changed, and how much you've stayed the same.
Neptune retrograde June 9th-November 6th: The dates suggest a lot of duplicitous activity around the U.S. mid-term elections. (Note on June 9th: I wrote this two weeks ago, before the outrageous deal announced today, the Republican bribe Dem. Phillip Puckett took to sell out disadvantaged Virginians.) It's easy for political machines to be nefarious and behind-the-scenes-vicious with Neptune retrograde in Pisces. Yet that same influence can make individuals experience exciting breakthroughs in their personal and spiritual development. Neptune retrograde is an easier time to become attuned to subtle energies, their hidden creativity, and Nature.
