How To Serve Cut-Up Fruit in the Summer and *Not* Get Anyone Sick

Spread the love

Heed these three important tips to avoid a sticky situation.

There hasn’t been a Gemini season like this one in a long time! Exuberant Jupiter entered the sign of the twins in late May, and the sun, Venus, and Mercury will also link up in the mutable air sign in June. Curiosity, over-caffeinated conversations, and creative chaos reign supreme for your June 2024 monthly horoscope—embrace the craze!

We want to know everything about everything right now, from world events to the latest discovery in physics, all while we mainline the latest hot Hollywood gossip. We’re living in the age of air, and as such, our news feeds could be a bit overwhelming. Tearing yourself away from TikTok or Instagram could be challenging, but with Mars entering Taurus on June 8, we can return to our sensual selves when we need a break.

We’re currently living in the age of air; world events, new scientific discoveries, and cultural conversations are at the forefront.

The first week of June is rife with sextiles, making it an ideal time for embarking on new ventures—both personal and professional. Pay attention on June 4, when a Mercury-Jupiter conjunction and a Venus Cazimi in Gemini occur in tandem, thrusting the cosmos into an enchanted state. First date? Job interview? A weekend away with your besties? If you do between June 4 and June 6, when the new moon in Gemini arrives, it’s likely to feel free, easy, and even idyllic.

Between June 8 and June 20, various planets square each other, creating a challenging conversation between planetary friends and frenemies, making your relationships and career a touch tougher to navigate. It’s as if  everyone wants to get into an argument for reasons that aren’t completely clear, and with so many planets in Gemini, this aggressive energy can amp up your nervous system. Keep your favorite breathing exercises memorized and maintain a cool head.

The sun enters nurturing Cancer at the summer solstice on June 20, allowing us to get back to softer, sweeter basics: Self-care, nourishment, and nurture. The full moon in Capricorn arrives the very next day, reminding us that what we do in the world matters, but we must first listen to our inner self with tenderness in order to be successful in making lasting change. School is officially out for summer, and as Saturn stations retrograde on June 29, it’s a reminder that we can all stand to slow down a bit—by the beach or a pool, preferably!
