THE NEW MOON IN GEMINI
Onwards and upwards. Follow the trajectory and keep aiming higher and further. Your name, voice, face, style and general me-ness are in the best possible place, astrologically speaking, until the third week of June, as Jupiter in Gemini is joined by the New Moon in your sign. You should be very pleased about what transpired in late May when your ruler Mercury formed a conjunction to Jupiter in Gemini too. Your brand and aura seemed to ping on a cosmic tuning fork set at just the right pitch. The New Moon in Gemini on Saturday 8th June is day one of a rapid two-week chain of events that will help you face July knowing that you did everything within your power to relaunch yourself over the last 12 months. When the Sun joins Jupiter on Wednesday 19th June you could really reach your own personal Everest – depending on the amount of time and energy you put into being more visible over the last 12 months. You have until Tuesday 25th June to follow up amazing offers and opportunities (some of which arrived very casually) since April. Within three weeks a standing goal for yourself – or a superior alternative – is within reach. You may have been focussed on the physical (your face, shape, hair, body) or the external (your social media profile, fifteen minutes of fame, reputation, name). In all cases, though, you will not have a chance like this again for 12 years. If you were handed something on a plate a few months ago and did nothing about it, hurry up. This New Moon is potent and June is your last chance to scoop up the benefits and solutions for Brand Me, that this cycle automatically delivers.
LIFE-CHANGING FINANCIAL TRENDS
Jupiter will fix issues, offer win-win solutions and bring all kinds of advantages and benefits through everything you own, earn or owe, in the second half of this year and first half of 2014. The atmosphere lifts and life turns you in a completely new direction from the third week of June, then after a period of backwards-and-forwards developments, from the first week of August you are completely on track.
Play with this cycle as creatively and productively as you can. As a rule of thumb start watching property websites for bargains or price rises. Track changes involving your own bank – and also rival organisations. Look for a second source of income or lucrative offers within your own professional sphere.
If your priority is charity, then you will be astonished at just how much is possible in the second half of 2013.
Be aware of your timing, though. Things are looking up hugely from June, but if you are signing or in negotiations before August, allow for Mercury Retrograde. This is personalised because you are ruled by this planet, which is the quicksilver Messenger of the Gods. When Mercury is retrograde, put ‘re’ in front of everything. So from Monday 10th June, Sunday 4th August, there will be renegotiation, revision, retraction, recall. The chapter which has been rewritten many times over will not be final until you are into the second week of August, so be aware of that. One example might be a lucrative offer for some work you did, that does not actually become as real as the paper it’s printed on, until August. Or – news of a legacy reaching you, but with some twists and turns in the tale until the money, possessions or property is actually yours, in August.
There are many more examples. Basically, what you need to know is that Pluto is in your zone of shared property, financial, business or material arrangements. The money you make or save by yourself, though (or cash in kind) is set to be boosted enormously by the arrival of Jupiter in Cancer. After a slow or circuitous beginning, by August you will be on your way. The Jupiter-Pluto opposition to come is a watershed when you will need to look seriously at how money, property, business, charity or possessions can empower you, and how to balance that so the price is not too high.
CUPID IN SAGITTARIUS
Cupido, or Cupid, is the asteroid which describes longing, desire and deep, irrational passion. This asteroid (in mythology he was the son of Venus) is now in your zone of marriage, engagement, sex and love. This is also where we find partners you loved and lost, or ex-soulmates. Finally, Cupid is stirring up potential new relationships. Do not be surprised if common-sense has to take a back seat. Cupid is especially potent now because you recently had an eclipse in this same zone of your horoscope.
If you have been more emotionally engaged with a professional or personal rival, or locked in war with someone you are firmly against, then it may be this man or woman who is at the core of Cupid’s highly emotional, deeply felt cycle. Again, common-sense takes a back seat.
Cupid is just passing through. His arrows also leave temporary wounds. This madness for you, he or she may not last beyond a few months. Just in case your personal horoscope says otherwise, though, remember that Cupid is the son of Venus, and the goddess herself is most interested in long and complicated partnerships.
YOUR TWIN IDENTITIES AT WORK
Your daily workload is hard. The people, place or situation is under Saturn’s influence which is why 2013 has delivered you with a heavy reality check that probably knocked you sideways. This is the transit known as ‘Sorry, but this is the way the real world is.’ Consequently you have been leaping towards a professional, voluntary or academic niche which I can only describe as The Great Escape.
This is perfectly fine. Don’t knock escapism. This is like your own theme park or day at the beach. This strange other world, within your overall sphere of ambition and achievement, is also going to provide you with the relief and release you need in June. Just remember it’s not remotely real. And perhaps you need to touch base with your twin identities (Castor and Pollux are the heavenly twins in the Gemini constellation) in order to cope. One of you should be stoic, sensible, serious and strategic. The other should be like John Lennon in the Sixties when he was driving a psychedelic Rolls Royce and wearing satin. If you can juggle both these sides of yourself then you should find it balances out beautifully.
Basically, if your Sun Sign or Rising Sign is Gemini then you are on track for the most profound changes with money, property, charity or business in years. By the middle of 2014 you will have had more to own, earn or exchange. There will also be key moments of empowerment, when you realise you must take your fair share of the reins. From June, it’s clear that money or the material world really is power. And that story will be played out for some months to come.
