Ready for a rollercoaster, people born on the 17th of June have strong need to express in the strangest of ways. They stand out, as children and as grownups, never quite learning how to incorporate in a certain team and groups that don’t have that many members. They don’t understand the dynamics of a team unless in cases when they feel respected and truly accepted by each person there, in one-on-one contact.

June 17th Horoscope

SUN – URANUS – (Pluto) – VENUS

The Sun and Uranus will give glimpses of light and beauty that spark up the skies only to lose their glow tomorrow. This is something as fiery as fireworks, but also stands for one's need to push themselves over all possible limits, strong and confident in their mental realm while emotionally unprepared. There are inner oppositions to be resolved in their world, and this can make them conflicted in many ways, leading them into relationships that need to get to the point of separation even if it seems impossible for years.

Fatherly love might be taken or lost as the person grew up, this leading to a point where ego is bruised and in pain, pressured by too many circumstances into becoming the person they might not want to be. Dictatorship can come to the surface when we reach the next step of their personal growth, so they need to keep their ego in check and mind their own business to express correctly and not offend too many people along the way.

Love and Emotions

Emotional world of a person born on the 17th of June must be exciting and as a giant rollercoaster that never touches the ground. Their relationships will be either numerous or extremely stressful, filled with conflict that none of the partners truly understands. In search for liberation, they could have trouble connecting to another person in general, and even though they wish to find someone to share their different Self with, it won’t be easy for them to find someone to truly understand their inner world.

In their own search for Self, obstructed by circumstances when they need to find confidence, bravery and respect for themselves, they must learn to stand for themselves to be able to form a family and protect everyone in it from the outer world. With their boundaries clear and obvious, there is no reason for them to dismiss the idea of a shared life and togetherness, for as long as everything seems right from the start. As they peel off their layers of protective material around their heart, they learn that the value of shared life and family they can create is much larger than any other value in life.


The purpose in lives of those born on June 17th comes down to their Mercury related role in the zodiacal circle. They are true messengers that have to pass on to "the other side" in order to bring knowledge to the rest of humankind. They should remain focused on writing and communication, for this makes them talk show hosts, writers, and orators with a bright future and something deep and thorough to discuss. Their brain works better when employed with words than with images.

What They Excel In

A person born on the 17th of June excels in unusual, modern things, creating solutions that others won’t even think of. They are innovative and highly social, ready to incorporate knowledge in every single thing they do and highly aware of their surroundings. A bit cold and detached they might not be your best team member, but they will excel in all solitary work, for as long as it is in sync with their character and gives their inner light a chance to shine.

June 17th Birthday Gift

Don’t ever choose a boring birthday gift for a person born on the 17th of June. They don’t need anything highly traditional with their personality already pressured, unless it is something to remind them of the liberation and the victory over oppression they have achieved. Choose something light, different, modern, with sharp edges and unsymmetrical. Their shape is the square, possibly with shiny lamps all over it. Most of all, they need friends to value and love them, so instead of being burdened by your gift, give them what they need most, a close connection of hearts.

Sabian Symbol

The Sabian symbol for Gemini representatives born on June 17th:

"Frost Covered Trees against Winter Skies"

There is coldness to the symbol for this date, in connection to the relationship with masculine figures and role models in a person's life. This is also a coldness of what comes natural, to adapt to newfound circumstances and matters that are out of control, distant, and giving a sense of ice cold beauty and hope for the warmth of the Sun to come out. Arising from the dead of night and the North Pole in all its glory, the Sun here brings that sparkly sensation of fireworks that leads one's soul to liberation and heart to thawing.
