You spoke your mind in a plethora of ways in May, Gemini. Each word leading you here, to June and Gemini season! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my bookish friend. 🎊Celebrate🎊 your month by diving into something new. That could be an adventure as small as a new book or Netflix binge, or as large as a new romance.

Epic Reads Horoscopes: Cancer

Cancer

June 21 – July 22

Keywords: Productive, proactive, successful

May was all about embracing the strange, deepening friendships, and forming strong bonds. We suspect there were a number of things percolating in the back of your mind during last month’s socially busy time, though: your 🎓college🎓 plans, a mounting to-do list, a spiritual awakening. June encourages you to explore the ideas you’ve been thinking about for a while but haven’t acted upon or completed. Maybe there are projects you need to let go of so you can check off some more important to-dos and to-wants? Take a *little* time to re-evaluate your summer—or even life—plans. With the productive energies the cosmos are throwing your way, you’re set up for success. Just before your birthday rolls around and a NEW year of life begins…

Book pick: The Language of Fire by Stephanie Hemphill

Reason: Pull out this novel in verse that dares to reimagine the life of Joan of Arc whenever you need some time to slow down and be more mindful of the choices you’re making and the path you’re taking.

 

Epic Reads Horoscopes: Leo

Leo

July 23 – August 22

Keywords: Refreshing, positive, social

You spent a lot of time in your head last month, Leo. Judging whether the choices you’ve been making have been the right ones. June will be lighter. Think of it as a kind of choose-your-own adventure month. It can either be a nice, refreshing time in which you can kick back and relax as school ends and 🌞summer🌞 begins. Or, you can take the positive vibes the planets are sending your way to get stuff done. Whichever path you choose to take, expect it to be lined with friends both new and old. Maybe that means meeting your college roommate(s) or catching up with your summer job co-workers or just hanging out with friends at the beach. Make the most of it. Because July and your birthday are FAST approaching…

Book pick: Girls of July by Alex Flinn

Reason: A great read for your relaxing, social month about four girls and one unforgettable July. When Britta, Meredith, Kate, and Spider stay together for a month in the mountains, they discover that getting away from it all can bring you back to who you really are.

 

Epic Reads Horoscopes: Virgo

Virgo

August 23 – September 22

Keywords: Confidence, determination, strength

You tackled some BIG challenges in May and grew all the stronger for it, Virgo. June asks you to keep your emotions in check. You might be feeling restless and 🤷‍♀️directionless🤷‍♀️ this month. But you have the power to create your own path, and you certainly have the organizational skills to plot the way forward. Just be aware of your tendency to let your nerves get the best of you or to use the example others set as a crutch. You’re strong enough to stand on your own. And the cosmos suggest you get used to doing just that before a *chaotic* July comes calling…

Book pick: Like a Love Story by Abdi Nazemian

Reason: As you learn to stand tall and proud in June, a book about the fight for love and self-expression in the face of discrimination, cruelty and death. Dive into this big-hearted epic about friendship and love set in New York City in 1989.

 

Epic Reads Horoscopes: Libra

Libra

September 23 – October 22

Keywords: Completion, success, communication

Last month you plowed forward like a farmer tilling her field. And boy did that field grow. And grow. And GROW. June is when all the hard work you put in will pay off, Libra. The trick will be not rushing things. You can’t force good luck to come into your life. You can’t hurry 🔮destiny🔮 along. But with patience, perseverance, and a positive mindset, you can certainly nudge things in the right direction. The cosmos suggest you adjust the way you communicate with others. Maybe you compromise less. Resist the urge to sugarcoat the truth. Be bold and raise a hand or speak up when normally you’d stay quiet. This month is what YOU make of it. So take advantage of the opportunity to define it for yourself, before a more eclipse-packed July defines things for you.

Book pick: Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon by Mary Fan

Reason: As you wrap things up and tie it with a pretty bow in June, a story about an epic quest to catch a thief and find an enchanted pearl that takes girl warrior Anlei all the way to the Courts of Hell.

 

Epic Reads Horoscopes: Scorpio

Scorpio

October 23 – November 21

Keywords: Transformation, detoxification, harmony

Last month you balanced what you needed out of your relationships against what you were able to put into them. In June, your focus shifts towards a change you might not be ready for. To help you along in a *potentially* transformative month, the stars suggest you GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK. Sometimes your intensity can exhaust even you. So set aside some time to 🧘‍♀️rest🧘‍♀️. As you let your mind and body quiet, thoughts and feelings and memories may resurface that you’d long forgotten. Let them! Cleanse yourself of any anger or frustration or bad juju hidden in your mysterious depths. It might not feel all that great in the process of release. But trust us, Scorpio, when July comes around you’ll be grateful for a lightened load.

Book pick: Sorry For Your Loss by Jessie Ann Foley

Reason: If you think your month is full of change, take a dive into this story about an awkward teenage guy who, after the loss of his brother, finds healing and a sense of self where he least expected to.

 

Epic Reads Horoscopes: Sagittarius

Sagittarius

November 22 – December 21

Keywords: Organized, calm, flexible

Last month you took the opportunity to rest your mind and body. Sometimes slowing down is a good thing, Sag! At least, we hope YOU think so. Because June is here and the stars are asking you to embrace ✌️ and harmony. To keep calm, even when things go wrong. Which they almost most likely will. Sorry. To balance out a lot of feelings with the mindfulness you’ll need to get things done, the stars suggest you get organized. Your calendar, planner, or to-do list app will be your best friend in June (no offense to your real bffl), helping you stay grounded when you need it most. And if you can get the hang of being the eye at the center of the hurricane, you’ll be all set to get the most out of the powerful energies coming your way in July…

Book pick: Far from the Tree by Robin Benway

Reason: Make sure to work this book into your to-do list, Sag. Reading is a great way to keep that mind focused yet relaxed, after all. Follow Grace, Maya, and Joaquin—three very different teenagers connected by blood—as they (sometimes reluctantly) explore the meaning of family in all its forms.

 

Epic Reads Horoscopes: Capricorn

Capricorn

December 22 – January 19

Keywords: Change, connect, correct

You steered your life in the direction you wanted in May. Do you like where you ended up? Well, this month the cosmos will continue *gently* nudging YOU to be a catalyst for change in your life. So if you don’t like where May led you, no worries! There’s still time to course correct. And in June, the stars suggest you focus on your relationships. This is a GREAT month for starting new ones and refreshing old ones, whether that be making friends at your summer job, hashing things out with your sister after you borrowed her shirt and got a stain on it (again!), or talking to 🥰bae🥰 about your college plans. Sounds intimidating? Fear not! Because the stars are inspiring you to find solutions to problems. Easy, breezy, Capricorn. Before the real fun of July begins…

Book pick: Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Reason: Some inspiration for your month of connection and relationships. Follow Trinity Morrow as her safe world implodes and she teams up with the annoying but fascinating Zayne to save her family and maybe the world when the secret of her gift—the ability to communicate with ghosts—is revealed.

Epic Reads Horoscopes: Aquarius

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

Keywords: Lead, grow, change

Things may have spiraled a *little* out of control emotionally last month, but you were able to distract yourself with fun and productive activities. At least, we hope so. June promises to get you back on track. Or, more likely, you’ll be determined to get June — and your LIFE — back on track. No more sitting back and waiting for life to happen. You’re ready to kick it into gear, and any hills, obstacles, or propriety better be ready to get out of your way. Now, that’s not to say you can force life — and the people in yours — to change. But being proactive comes with certain perks. The cosmos suggest you explore said perks before July and eclipse season comes your way. What do you say, ♒︎Aquarius♒︎? Ready to take charge?

Book pick: The Red Labyrinth by Meredith Tate

Reason: Some inspiration for your taking charge kind of month. When Zadie’s best friend vanishes into the labyrinth built to protect their isolated desert town, she is determined to find him before time runs out and the murder that lurks in the maze’s corridor finds her first.

 

Epic Reads Horoscopes: Pisces

Pisces

February 19 – March 20

Keywords: Determination, balance, fun

Last month was truly an amazing month, was it not, Pisces? June promises to be a lot quieter. If you want to keep up May’s momentum, you’re going to have to do it the good-old-fashioned way: hard work and self-discipline. But we promise that’s not a *bad* thing! After all, sometimes slowing down means being more deliberate. Putting more thought into your actions and your goals. ONE step in the right direction is better than a MILLION steps to nowhere. But to balance out your 🚶‍♀️plodding🚶‍♀️ progress, the stars suggest you also take some time to just have fun. Work that into your to-do list, because when you march into July, the tempo is bound to pick up. And maybe not for the better…

Book pick: The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven

Reason: To help push push your through a potentially slow month, a book about Izzy O’Neill: aspiring comic, impoverished orphan, and Slut Extraordinaire. Or at least, that’s what the malicious website flying around school says. Keeping her head up will take everything she has.

 

Epic Reads Horoscopes: Aries

Aries

March 21 – April 19

Keywords: Restless, adventurous, exploratory

Last month you zeroed in on the things that make you happy and align with #lifegoals big and small. This month, you’ll be feeling energized and a little restless. Channel that antsiness into trying something new. Now that school is over, you’ve totally got the time! So take that pottery class, dive into a new writing project, give spinning a spin, buy yourself a tarot deck. Or if none of those things feel BIG enough to you, get your fam or friends (or both!) onboard for a weekend adventure. 🏕Camping🏕 or glamping or grandma-visiting, whatever floats your boat and doesn’t sink your wallet. By the time July rolls around, you’ll be feeling satisfied and relaxed. Ready to take on what the upcoming eclipse-filled month has in store for you…

Book pick: The Beholder by Anna Bright

Reason: If you’re looking to have an adventure without leaving your couch, here’s a story about a girl who leaves everything she knows behind (after a brutal rejection we might add) to find a suitor. Her duty is to find the perfect match. And if she can’t find that across the Atlantic, well… she shouldn’t come home at all.

 

Epic Reads Horoscopes: Taurus

Taurus

April 20 – May 20

Keywords: Discovery, change, communication

We hoped you enjoyed your celebratory May, Taurus, putting all those good vibes to good use. Because you can expect to be taking a long, hard look at yourself in June. Something may come to light that gives you a new perspective on life or yourself. This could be a secret uncovered, the start of a new relationship, a talent discovered, or just a LIFE-CHANGING read that wakes you up to new and *amazing* dreams. The cosmos suggest that you chronicle your June journey in writing, and that you share your new-found wisdom with the 🗺world🗺. You never know who’s searching for what you’ve just found.

Book pick: The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen

Reason: To help keep things light in what might feel like a heavy June, a book about a girl who reconnects with a part of her family she hadn’t seen since she was a little girl and falls in love, all over the course of a magical summer.
