Hold on to your bonnets this month—we’re in for a bumpy ride. To start the month, we have the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on June 4. Our attention will be turned worldwide during that eclipse. • Venus will move across the face of the sun so that we can see her on June 5. Venus is still retrograde this month, so we are reconsidering partnerships, financial investments, and our appearance. • Also this month, Neptune and Saturn go direct along with Venus at the very end of the month. And Jupiter enters Gemini for the first time in 12 years. • As we start the month, the sun is in talkative Gemini. On June 20, the Summer Solstice, the sun enters loving Cancer’s home at 6:09 p.m. Mercury begins the month in Gemini, then enters Cancer on the 7th and Leo on the 25th. Venus remains in Gemini. Mars is pushing his way through Virgo. Jupiter starts the month in Taurus and enters Gemini on June 11. Saturn is in Libra, Uranus is in Aries, Neptune is in Pisces, and Pluto is in Capricorn—all happy as can be.
ARIES (March 21–April 19). There is a lot on your plate this month as you feel pulled in many different directions. You will have to make sure that you stay within your own boundaries, or you’ll feel trapped by over-commitment. Your focus this month is on your home and family, and the security that you need to feel safe. Make sure you get some exercise to burn off some of the frustration. On the 24th, your patience and tolerance is very low. Don’t let your work get to you. Take some time off and get a better perspective.
TAURUS (April 20–May 20). Money matters more than usual this month. You’ll be reconsidering many aspects of your life since your ruler, Venus, is still retrograde in your money sector. This is all about evaluating what you are worth. You are communicating more easily and telling people what you really, really want. New business opportunities are coming, but you may have to wait until mid-July to respond. Take your time to explore the advantages.
GEMINI (May 21–June 21). Happy Birthday to the Geminis. This is the start of your personal yearly cycle, a time when you examine the projects that you started last year and set new goals for yourself. Some of that is being delayed with Venus retrograde, which will make your birthday much more introspective than usual. The eclipse on the 4th could affect your relationship, particularly if things are going well. Keep an eye on your money, especially near the end of the month.
CANCER (June 22–July 22). You are deep inside your brain this month. There is a lot of planning, organizing, and goal-setting going on. You won’t be ready to act on this until the early part of July. The end of the month is a stressful time for you. Career, relationships, and home will be pulling on you all at the same time. Keep working your options so you don’t feel trapped. Remember, you are in charge of your choices. Come July, you will feel as though you have been shot out of a rocket.
LEO (July 23–August 22). There are a lot of things going on, but you seem to be able to dodge the worst of it this month. Your friends will rely on you heavily, and old friends could come back into your life. They could be extremely helpful to you. You are still in an organizing and cleanup mode. Take some time to rest at the end of the month and avoid the stress if possible. Long-term career energies are still making you consider changing your current career path. Don’t be surprised if you decide to make a change.
VIRGO (August 23–September 22). Lots of activity this month in the career and family sectors of your horoscope. The eclipse on June 4 is right in your career sector. This is an indicator to start your own business or revamp the one you are in. You won’t finalize this decision until mid-August, so you’ll be unsettled at work until then. Get ready—you are about to be very busy. Relationships are okay, but you still need some excitement so the boredom doesn’t get to you. Work on your temper.
LIBRA (September 23–October 23). As the month begins, you are in a planning mode. You feel like you are going to have to make some decisions about getting your life organized. You have already started some of this, but by the end of the month, you will need your plan in place. Home and career are in a gigantic state of flux, as they have been since last September. The 24th could be a very stressful day. Get some space to yourself during that weekend. You will be ready to make those decisions after mid-July.
SCORPIO (October 24–November 21). Cleaning out and letting go are your themes for this month. Relationships are highlighted as you get clear on what really creates intimacy for you. This is a time of setting new goals for your existing relationship or looking for someone to fill that spot in your life. Your career direction will become more focused as we head into the fall. Old friends from the past can be very helpful to you this month. Take the time to explore this aspect of your life.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21). You start the month with an eclipse right in the relationship arena of your chart. This can put pressure on bad relationships, revitalize old ones, and start new ones. Your relationship energies will be much improved through June 2013. You are finally getting your act together with your career. You were in a hibernating mode for a while, but you are back ready to challenge the world. Wait until the end of the month to put those new plans into action.
CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) Security and relationship issues are so strong this month. You are definitely at a place where you must take steps to establish some boundaries in your life. Otherwise, your people-pleasing habit will get the best of you. Don’t wait for the end of the month to act on this. If you do, you will be at a crisis point and may not have the time to make the best decision. You are still cleaning out your past. You may not even be close to finishing until October. Keep your schedule free on the 24th—you will want that time for yourself.
AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18). The Water Bearers are coming out of the shadows they have been living in for several years. You are more active, more decisive, and clear about what you won’t do. This is a creative month for you. You are more playful and inventive. You are better able to communicate this month, and that continues through next year. It’s a great time for writing, Internet blogging, or publishing a newsletter. Career issues become more focused at the end of the month.
PISCES (February 19–March 20). The eclipse this month on June 4 is right in the career and family areas of your chart. This is a very good time to consider starting your own business or expanding the one you have. You will need to wait a bit before you put your plans into action. Relationships have been edgy, especially if you have not put any new effort into revitalizing them. This is also a time when you will consider moving, buying some property, or relocating to another country. Old family issues are resurfacing. Clean them out and make way for new connections with your family.
