YOUR EMOTIONAL AND SPIRITUAL LEGACY
How do you pass on your legacy? You can get pregnant. You can be close enough to a friend or family member to achieve godparent status. You can adopt or foster. You can commit to charity or professional projects involving younger people. You can also become the lover of a person with younger nieces and nephews, godchildren or work/charity commitments to the next generation. Your relationship brings all these younger faces closer to yours.
The New Moon in Gemini on Saturday 8th June enables you to confirm the legacy. When the Sun joins Jupiter on Wednesday 19th there is a very public moment, when you will receive the solution you need, or the growth you crave. You have until Tuesday 25th June to follow up. This is a grand finale for Jupiter in the last stages of his cycle in Gemini.
As you read this you know exactly what the most likely outcome is. However Jupiter has a funny way of manifesting the great Patric Walker/John Lennon quote – ‘Life is what happens to you when you are making other plans.’ Of course you have been fuelling this situation for months, as your emotional and spiritual legacy to the next generation is precious and important – and you always knew it would work for you. What you had not factored in was June 2013, though – when Jupiter will hurl some thunderbolts that even you hadn’t expected. The most fertile and abundant situation in years follows soon after so enjoy your place in the sun.
RELIEF AT LAST – WORK EASES UP
Be you professional, student or volunteer – your role has seldom been as challenging as it’s felt this year. Blame Saturn’s cycle, but enjoy the relief that is coming. Jupiter enters your zone of lifestyle, daily routine and ritualised workload in the final week of June. This is a massive break. Saturn is Jupiter’s father. Jupiter replaced him, in time. And this cycle, starting now, shows you just how much easier the rest of 2013 is going to be. Of course it’s still challenging, but for the first time you have hope. And people power. And resources. What’s not to say ‘Aaah’ over?
If you really want to move on particular projects and plans, the path is being cleared and between August and Christmas you could be in a much better situation on a daily basis. The technology may be there to support you or the people are right – the project or position rocks your world too. Just remember, Mercury is shadow retrograde so you may prefer to have Plan B or alternatives – or even wait until August to fully commit. The outlook is excellent but there may be a wobbly situation if you rush it; try to either read the fine print or have some back-ups available. Things are looking up hugely from June, but if you are signing or in negotiations before August, especially with the media, web-based organisations, computers, transport, education, telephones, publishing and so on – (ruled by Mercury) allow for news or ‘commitments’ which may change shape after Monday 10th June. Do prepare for a wobbly take-off until Mercury, the Messenger of the Gods, can safely assist you. But do have high hopes. It’s only right that you do. The son has entered your workload zone to challenge and eventually replace his father – and educate him too. A tough cycle is breaking up. There will be relief and release.
FORMER, CURRENT, POTENTIAL PARTNERS
You’ll have co-operation and collaboration with this man or woman, as Venus moves into Leo from Thursday 27th June and it’s clearly about the two of you, not just a solo act. You two could become so much closer and as Venus is a very traditional Roman goddess, there may be a fairly old-fashioned trajectory. A lot of balancing and evaluation. A lot of emphasis on the wardrobe or the way someone uses perfume or cologne. And of course, the constant potential for jealousy or seething passion!
The conjunction from Venus to Ceres in Leo on Sunday 30th June lets you know that a fair balancing act for all those involved is necessary. Nobody likes giving up, giving in or letting go but it will be required as July comes closer.
Ceres is the goddess whose daughter was taken by Pluto. She went on strike until Jupiter brought her daughter back – for half the time. Symbolically, the situation with your former, current or potential partner from the very end of June, mimics this cycle of loss, withdrawal and ultimate agreement. He, she or you may manifest it, but as Venus has also been hanging around in your zone of love, sex and commitment – this is going to feel like a myth all by itself. A real Roman saga. The key to successful handling of the Ceres cycle is to do your level best to assist a process of negotiation and reconciliation in which there has to be a rigorous level of justice and fairness, as the players will all want their ownership/rights/power/control and there has to be some kind of win-win in order for anything to hang together. As July comes closer, this strongly applies to the man or woman at the core of your emotional life.
If an enemy or rival received more of your energy in 2012 and 2013 then you can apply all of the above to this person. There has to be a new way to make this work – or else.
YOUR ALTERNATIVE FINANCIAL REALITY
Ah, the great escape. No longer bound by the usual boring, dull and mundane rules that have governed the way you earn, own , owe or donate money for years – instead you are exploring. It’s rather like deep sea diving. Nobody else can really see or touch what is going on, but for you it’s the ultimate way off the ‘normal’ planet. It’s just that your little trip is manifesting through a sum of money, an apartment, a house, a business, a charity or some precious possessions. Neptune can feel magical, like Mickey Mouse’s wand over Disneyland. Of course it’s about as real as a cartoon, too. But what’s not to enjoy about going technicolour (even gloriously technicolour) as Neptune trines Saturn?
Basically, if your Sun Sign or Rising Sign is Aquarius, then June is about a new cycle of considerable relief and release, professionally (or with your other major role in life). You’ve had a very tough encounter with the real world over the last few months, no matter if you are in business, the workforce, academia or the non-profit sector. You’ll be pleased to see the situation soften and ease, starting in late June, with clear and welcome signs of quite a different direction from August.
THE NEW MOON IN GEMINI
Your house, flat, family, household, home town or homeland still promises more than you realise and this will be an epic grand finale to an incredible cycle, which began in 2012. Follow the trajectory 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 but 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 what ‘home’ always meant to you, no matter if it’s about the people or the place. When the Sun joins Jupiter on Wednesday 19th June you could really reach your own personal Everest – then you have until Tuesday 25th June to follow up.
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 rewards. Jupiter is a very practical planet. He hurls thunderbolts. So if you have prepared the ground in terms of the property, place or people then the seeds will be well fertilised and the growth spurt may be rapid, impressive and multi-directional. Ask yourself where you belong, who you belong to and where you come from. The abundance is locked inside those answers but this offer closes soon. Don’t muck about, as they say in England.
THE NEXT GENERATION
From late June it’s about the next generation or a relationship which brings it closer to you. Your new girlfriend may be involved with a children’s charity. Your new boyfriend may have amazing godchildren. You could find pregnancy, adoption or new godparent status yourself. There may be a work or voluntary connection with younger people which promises huge benefits.
Jupiter will fix issues, offer win-win solutions and bring all kinds of advantages and benefits through the next generation, no matter if you are a parent or not. 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. Don’t sweat the small stuff if things are wobbly for a while. Allow for changes and delays. This applies to child custody agreements, your son’s new school, your new lover’s place in your life, and so on.
Wibble, wibble, wobble! Mercury is on a wonky bicycle, going backwards. The messenger of the gods is not behaving normally. Yet with Jupiter leading the way, you are damn right to feel optimistic about the future. You now have a rare opportunity, not possible for 12 years, to gain from the next generation and to enrich your life by the legacy you leave to them, no matter if you are a parent or not. Start slowly, though. Allow for hitches, reversals or other complications. If you are signing or in negotiations before August, allow for Mercury Retrograde – 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, yet from there – you are on a roll. Prepare the ground, watch for the right timing, sow the seeds of growth in your life, with this generation born 20 years or more after you. From August through the middle of 2014 everything can grow. In all directions, everywhere, abundantly and in the most satisfying and fulfilling way. The universe will serve up whatever works for you, and those around you, in a kind of over-arching way, as Jupiter has an eagle’s view of the world and the outcomes in this cycle tend to be vast, multi-functional and serve everything and everybody. Your place within that will be part of a wider circle of abundant change. Stork? Possibly. But there are so many ways this generation can add to your life without astrology clichés. Let’s just say your future is pregnant with possibility and you can manifest that any way you want, with those who are your junior!
CUPID IN SAGITTARIUS
Cupido, or Cupid, is the asteroid which describes longing, desire and this basic reality – 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. And it’s about your career, student role or volunteer position. Where you aim higher but also hang onto your success. It’s about the top of the mountain.
If you have been more emotionally engaged recently it may be because of Cupid’s highly emotional, deeply felt cycle. This isn’t just a job, course or charity gig. It’s about a deep passion and either you, he, she or they are feeling it. Ping! There goes an arrow.
Cupid is just passing through. His arrows also leave temporary wounds. This madness for you, he, she or they may not last beyond a few months. Yet because I can also spy Ceres and Venus in Leo, overlooking your work zone, this seems like a really epic story in your life. It packs a tremendously emotional punch and it’s about the person/people as much as the project or position. It extends from June, through July and into August. Deep breath. This is the stuff which poets and musicians focus on and it has nothing to do with a careers handbook or human resource department. Projects which come out of this period will bear the intensity of Cupid, Venus and Ceres and carry the imprint of the most tremendously emotional alchemy.
YOU ARE THE ESCAPE ROUTE
Don’t knock escapism. This is like your own theme park or scuba dive. This strange other world, is truly peculiar, though, because it proves that you are your own escape route, The relief and release you need in June comes from the ‘Me’ stuff. Your name, face, shape, image, style, identity, reputation, Google profile, social media presence. Within the world of me, me, me you find what every Pisces person wants – the total departure from reality. Just remember it’s not remotely real (don’t get lost there, in the Wonderful World of Me). Rather like the Latitude festival, or The Big Day Out, you’ll find that this peculiar, shimmering, glorious other world is a better fit, when you shut the gate after you – and remember to leave on time.
Never make the mistake of thinking that when you are the escape route, you can stay there forever and that it should become any kind of substitute for what’s really going on. Those are the rules of your planetary ruler Neptune, which trines Saturn in June.
If your Sun Sign or Rising Sign is Pisces then the most you need to know about June is the abundant opportunities surrounding those born 20 years or more after you – the next generation. Whatever it takes to bring this into your world in a more satisfying and enriching way, will happen. New relationship? Children’s organisation? Pregnancy? Adoption? Big new phase for your son or daughter? By August it will be satisfyingly clear to you.
Aries June Horoscope
IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS THE WORD
Everyone wants to read your stuff or listen to you – either in person or online. And of course, there may be more than one project or plan, no matter if you live on the internet or prefer to project your voice in the flesh. You should be feeling pretty happy about what transpired in late May. Just keep pushing this. The New Moon in Gemini on Saturday 8th June is the channel you have been looking for. On that day, or very close to it, you can launch a new version of your old idea, or an entirely fresh plan. When the Sun joins Jupiter on Wednesday 19th June you could hit a peak – depending on the amount of time and energy you put into your ‘voice’ over the last 12 months. You have until Tuesday 25th June to follow up the new connections and contacts which have arrived since April, but also to really milk the plans which have been around you for the longest time! Aries is an impatient sign so you should be delighted with the rapid results you achieve in June. From start to finish, I would not be surprised if you get what you want within three weeks – or a superior alternative. You will not have a chance like this again for 12 years, so no matter if you want to blog, podcast, lecture, write, animate, make films, explore multimedia, learn a language – do not hesitate. There are no accidents in astrology and the people who are around you now have been sent to support you and encourage you in your quest to be heard or read in the biggest and best way for years.
YOUR STUNNING NEW PROPERTY CYCLE
This is going to be good. You will successfully renovate or revamp the apartment or house within months and achieve so much more light, space and comfort than you had before. If you really want to move, though, the path is being cleared and between August and Christmas you could be in a much better area and/or in a superior living space. If your priority is money (and it may be, because you are in the toughest financial cycle in 29 years) then it may well be a particular house or apartment that offers you a solution. It won’t be perfect, but it could help considerably. For example – you may be offered a house-sitting opportunity (saving on rent) or a glittering home exchange which makes you feel richer and more abundant on your holiday. You could also find the gap between the sale price of your last home and your new one helps you deal with some of the unavoidable realities at the bank. There are many options but all of them will assist you.
On the people side of things, the Fourth House, where Jupiter is about to take up residence, also rules your live-in partner, your family and close relatives, and your clan (flatmates or even companion animals). Jupiter will fix issues, offer win-win solutions and bring all kinds of advantages and benefits through one of these people. One example might be welcoming a family member’s new girlfriend into the clan – she may well change everything for the better!
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 in your area and keep tabs on mortgage interest rates as these may well benefit you.
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. What appears to be fixed, firm or final news may change shape after Monday 10th June, when the planet of communication, information and negotiation goes shadow retrograde. Please read the fine print so carefully to see what would happen if there was a change of mind or delay. The basic benefits of this cycle will be there, but if you want the best result from your horoscope, wait until Mercury is out of shadow, and firmly direct, from at least Sunday 4th August. The chapter which has been rewritten many times over will then be final.
THE NEXT GENERATION
Venus moves into Leo from Thursday 27th June so the next generation, or a relationship which brings it your way, suddenly becomes a win-win situation for you. The conjunction from Venus to Ceres in Leo on Sunday 30th June lets you know that a certain amount of compromise and sharing will be crucial as the situation looks intensely emotional, from the point of view of one player. Your children, grandchildren, godchildren or young relatives may be the source. So might a work or charity commitment to younger people. Finally, the Fifth House, where we now find Venus, the planet of partnerships, is very much about relationships which may end in pregnancy, adoption or step-parenting. Sometimes one acquires younger relatives or godchildren in the mix, thanks to a new partner too. Your own personal horoscope will tell the full story, but from the final week of June, you are being set up for July and the next generation (or a relationship which delivers it to your door) will be absolutely key to your peace of mind and happiness.
Basically, if your Sun Sign or Rising Sign is Aries, then June 2013 is about the turning of the tide in your favour with the house or flat, or broader questions about your home town or homeland. You will see why, no later than 2014 when this new story is complete. Please allow for delays or changes until August, though. Read the fine print.
Taurus June Horoscope
OPPORTUNITIES FOR ABUNDANCE
You should be feeling content with the solutions or opportunities for abundance, which manifested in late May. Now keep the momentum going, no matter if you are saving money, making it or gaining from ‘cash in kind’ benefits (the universe doesn’t ring a cash register but often favours, loans or free access to what you need). The New Moon in Gemini on Saturday 8th June is the path forward that you have been looking for. When the Sun joins Jupiter on Wednesday 19th there is a glittering, public moment of truth when you will receive rewards for having ploughed in time, energy, faith and hope since 2012. You have until Tuesday 25th June to follow up the new connections and contacts which have been swirling around you since April, but you should also squeeze the most out of old associations or structures. You will not have a chance like this again for 12 years, so take even the smallest piece of encouragement and go with it. Banks are obvious places to begin but anything from eBay to a car boot sale may hold what you want. Taurus is the sign to be associated with charity and philanthropy at its highest vibration so perhaps this is where your rewards will come. This is a grand finale for Jupiter in the last stages of his cycle through your finance, property, business, possessions, charity and business zone. Use it or lose it.
WEB, MEDIA, PUBLISHING, VOICE
If you really want to move on particular projects and plans revolving around web, media, publishing – or just your voice – the path is being cleared and between August and Christmas you could be in a much better situation than you can remember, for some years. If you are one of the Taurus people who have planets in Gemini (check at www.astro.com) then part of you is a natural speaker or writer and perhaps your time is fast approaching – a chance to fly past even your own best achievements by 2014.
The word is the thing when Jupiter is in your Third House of communication. This cycle begins in the closing days of June. The technology may be there to support you soon after this (computers, phones, microphones and so on) but be aware that Mercury is shadow retrograde so you may prefer to have Plan B or alternatives – or even wait until August to fully commit. The outlook is excellent but there may be a wobbly situation if you rush it; try to either read the fine print or have some back-ups available. There may also be a person or organisation which takes you on a circuitous path, even though the basic signs are good. Be aware of this, late June through August.
Play with this cycle as creatively and productively as you can. Be aware of your timing, though. Things are looking up hugely from June, but if you are signing or in negotiations before August, especially with the media, web-based organisations, publishing and so on – allow for news or ‘commitments’ which may change shape after Monday 10th June, when the planet of communication, information and negotiation goes shadow retrograde.
What is your message? That’s key. What do you have to say? So many times between now and the middle of 2014 the universe will provide you with the right medium to massage that message. And you will be given access to some incredible tools and resources, no matter if you want to speak a foreign language, achieve a bestselling book or make a documentary. Even something as basic as speech therapy or sign language could be part of your toolkit if it is required. Taurus, release your voice. But just prepare for a wobbly take-off until Mercury, the Messenger of the Gods, can safely assist you with your own message. It takes weeks but it’s worth the wait.
FAMILY, HOUSEHOLD, PROPERTY
You’ll have co-operation and collaboration over the house, flat, family, household or hometown/homeland issue within weeks. Venus moves into Leo from Thursday 27th June so this becomes a win-win situation for you. Think of it like balancing the scales with someone or meeting them halfway on a high-wire. The conjunction from Venus to Ceres in Leo on Sunday 30th June lets you know that a fair balancing act for all those involved is necessary. Nobody likes giving up, giving in or letting go but it will be required as July comes closer, no matter if this is the property or the people. Your own personal horoscope will tell the full story, but from the final week of June, you are being set up for July and August in terms of your plans for the household, family, house or flat. On a broader level there may be issues about your nationality, country or neighbourhood. One individual or organisation will want to be taken seriously from late June into July. If you or anyone else wants an easy life, this request will also be taken seriously. The outcome will have a lasting impact on the way you rent or own property, renovate it, relate to family members or share with flatmates or live-in partners. Ultimately, there will need to be a change in the stakes between you, he, she or they – in terms of the amount of power you all feel you have in the situation. It all builds in the final week of June.
ESCAPE THROUGH YOUR TRIBE
Your tribal involvement is like a spa for the soul. Or is this just about a two-way friendship? Social media, social life, social acquaintances all encourage you to break away from what is normal, real and ordinary and plunge into something utterly different.
The issues with your former, current or potential partner are ongoing. You may have a professional rival too or a personal enemy. With Saturn in your opposite sign of Scorpio, your opposite number (or opposition) is unlikely to produce much in your life other than challenges. What happens in June, though, enables you to elevate yourself past this and to descend comfortably into another universe. It’s called Planet Friendship and thanks to this particular social space you can now leave earth behind – though you are undoubtedly one of the most grounded and down-to-earth zodiac signs! Social media, groups, clubs, teams, new friends and old friends alike allow you to exhale. It’s a way out.
If your Sun Sign or Rising Sign is Taurus, then essentially June is about a major project or achievement for 2014, being seeded now. Even though the time is not yet right (that comes after the first week of August) there is nothing wrong with having high hopes and big goals. Your voice – online, on paper or in person – will find the biggest and best outlets after Jupiter changes signs in late June and after a circuitous beginning, from August it’s take-off time.
Gemini June Horoscope
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 through 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. Then there are Gemini people who pursue partnership for professional or business reasons. For you, too, Cupido makes this an emotional, irrational, heartfelt and undoubtedly temporary break from the real world.
Cupid is just passing through. His arrows also leave fleeting 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. Essentially, to quote Iggy Pop, this is all about Lust For Life.
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 technicolour satin. If you can juggle both these sides of yourself then you should find it balances out beautifully. Be Lennon and McCartney at the same time!
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.
THE FULL MOON AND YOUR RELATIONSHIPS
The Full Moon on Sunday 23rd June lays everything on the line with your former, current or potential partner. If you have a professional rival or personal enemy (and you put more energy into this person, than you do into love) then this person (who always holds up a mirror to you) will be at the centre of the crossroads. The reason this Full Moon is so important is its placement; the Moon (your ruler) will occupy the same zone of your astrological chart as Pluto, so the moment of truth some weeks before (near Friday 7th June) leads you to its logical conclusion a fortnight later. By the way – try not to engage in crucial discussions, e-mails or signatures with this man or woman near 7th June; we have an opposition from Mercury to Pluto that day which is unlikely to make your life any easier. The same applies to the Venus-Pluto opposition on Tuesday 11th June; that is not the time to try and ‘fix’ things.
You must proceed to a more balanced or whole existence, though, as the Full Moon will make everything so abundantly clear. Throughout this entire period, the focus is obviously on this person and the alchemy you have with them. Don’t be fooled, though. It’s also about your image, reputation and identity, out there in the world. You’ll see why after Jupiter enters Cancer on Wednesday 26th June. It’s not actually about him (or her). It’s about you, you, you – and what the world sees, when it looks your way.
The issue may be resolution with your former partner, a budding new relationship or the state of play with your existing soulmate. Maybe it’s about fierce rivalry or enmity. In all cases, though, June holds up a mirror and what you see reflected there is invaluable. If your birthday falls on (or close to) 23rd June then the Full Moon is personal for you. Sharper self-awareness and a greater sensitivity to your reputation or public image (or your physical appearance) reveal what is working – or clearly not working – in 2013. Because Vesta in Cancer, your own sign, is conjunct Venus just one day before, you may want to look at the part one particular male is playing in terms of all those ‘me’ issues about your packaging, presentation and profile. Here is an astrological snapshot showing you Vesta in your sign, and also the path of the Full Moon itself – crucial if your reputation is an ongoing issue. (Click to enlarge the chart).
FAR HORIZONS, BIG THINKING
The Magical Mystery Tour arrives this month as the planets move slowly into position, facing Neptune in your house of big thinking and distant journeys. The person who is at the heart of this may have a different passport or accent. Alternatively you may be looking at an extraordinary move, either temporarily or permanently, to a place which you believe is an escape from the real world. It may lie across your country or across the world but you are right – this is your Alice In Wonderland rabbit hole.
There will be no Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at the other end, but this connection is a genuine way for you to take both feet off the ground, wave goodbye to terra firma and explore a mysterious ‘other’ world which is a genuine alternative. Follow the white rabbit.
If you can’t travel, emigrate or welcome other nationalities into your world, you may try other options. Publishing (digital or traditional) and all kinds of education, from workshops to academia, suggest themselves. Once Jupiter enters Cancer on Wednesday 26th June you can peer into 2014 – and you should – with a greater sense of the compass points being set. It’s going to be quite a journey. Neptune was discovered in the same year they publicly trialled anaesthetic; this cycle describes a ‘comfortably numb’ outlet which takes you away from the rawness of reality and all the hard edges. Remember that famous Pink Floyd song as you explore the trip, unfamiliar culture, foreign nationality, website, book or course in June. It’s lovely to be comfortably numb for a while but if you stay there, you’re gone. Make sure you come back to the real world once your trip (or head-trip) is over.
RENAISSANCE, REBIRTH, RELAUNCH
It has been 12 years since Jupiter was in your own sign and even though there is a wobbly and prolonged beginning to your renaissance, you will constantly find yourself being encouraged by supportive people and opportunities. For the best results, though (especially if you are putting things online, in print or on the record) focus on yourself exclusively from Sunday 4th August when Mercury will be out of shadow and moving swiftly through Cancer, where the news, commitments and confirmations will benefit you. Please be very careful with Mercury’s shadow period which begins on Monday 10th June as although it would be tempting to launch the website, order the business cards, sign up for the fitness program and so on – all your ‘me’ priorities may swing backwards and forwards from that point. Maintain the faith though and keep juggling that ping pong ball of possibility. When the time is right, as it absolutely will be, from August 2013 through the middle of 2014 is your relaunch. You’ll shed a skin and emerge like a butterfly from the chrysalis – or just remind us all who you are and why you matter.
You can’t get through the Jupiter in Cancer cycle without an opposition to Pluto in your Seventh House. This ongoing cycle reminds you (periodically) that a former, current or potential partner will always raise issues about how empowered you are and how much control you have. If you invest more time and energy into competing with a professional rival or opponent, or just hating someone on a personal level, then the Seventh House will serve this person up, as the living embodiment of your Pluto transit!
The Jupiter-Pluto opposition to come, on Thursday 8th August, signals a moment of truth about this. At a time of expansion and high hopes for your image, name, reputation and public profile – there will also be a crossroads connected to the one person who can teach you about power. That’s almost two months away as you read this but it is worth bearing in mind.
If your Sun Sign or Rising Sign is Cancer then the most you need to know about June is this – as the month comes to an end, Jupiter enters your sign for the first time in 12 years, allowing you to have more, do more and become more. This strongly applies to your social media profile, your reputation, your brand and your personal appearance. Like an Easter Egg, you are all shell and silver foil once this transit begins, and although Mercury Shadow Retrograde will hold you up at the beginning, from the first week of August you will see how right you were to think big and ask the universe for more.
YOUR SERIOUSLY SOCIABLE MONTH
All eyes are on your tribe in June. And of course, there may be more than one tribal involvement. The societies, teams, networks, groups, clubs and other clusters around you promise so much – even beyond the great news you had in late May. Just keep pushing this. The New Moon in Gemini on Saturday 8th June shows you the way forward. When your ruler the Sun joins Jupiter, also in Gemini, on Wednesday 19th June there is simply no stopping you. It’s fair to stay that particular friends or tribes in your life are worth their weight in glittering jewels. You have until Tuesday 25th June to follow up every single person and possibility which promises so much. Of course your social life (and social media) will be bigger and better as a result, but that’s not the point. There are some truly vast hopes, wishes and ambitions that will come off as a result of these friends and acquaintances. Call it Team Leo. It’s potent and it’s instant gratification. When you retrace your steps, though, you may even find the energy and effort you put into people 12 or 13 years ago is now being returned. By the end of June you should be extremely happy with a major coup or turning point for a team project or group venture – and perhaps more than one. Gemini rules your Eleventh House of friends and groups, so people with personal planets in this sign (hint: they live online, or on the phone) may be a major part of the story. One more thing. If you are a regular astrology reader then you will have consciously been building a tribal project, or deliberately joining networks, since 2012 as you are well aware of Jupiter’s rewards. What you don’t know, though, is that this planet always manages to deliver something extra. Look at the new friends you have made since April. And some acquaintances who have become friends. These people are there for a reason. They will show you, in quite an unexpected way, why friendship is often more important than partnership, in terms of its stunning impact on your life.
YOUR SECRET TREASURE
Nobody else will be able to see or touch what is so deeply hidden below the surface. It may be that part of your personality which you only access through dreams, diaries or meditation. Alternatively this may be a big secret which is rather like a treasure chest thrown onto the bottom of the ocean. After Venus changes signs on Monday 3rd June it becomes clear this is going to send you on a major journey until 2014. Just remember that the ‘firm’ plans or ‘absolutely final’ arrangements you are making will go backwards and forwards after Monday 10th June, as Mercury is retrograde shadow. That should not stop your basic faith, hope and optimism in what you are covering up – or what is basically inner work. However, reserve judgement and concrete arrangements until Mercury is out of shadow on Sunday 4th August. From that point on, though – yes, it’s big. The Twelfth House of your horoscope describes everything which is submerged. It reveals that part of yourself which shows up in dreams, meditation, therapy or diary entries. It also (traditionally) points to plans, plots and projects which you deliberately cover up or hide from others. In either or both cases, this profoundly important new Jupiter cycle will change your life. Expect small hints now, and a wobbly start. From August, however, the submerged aspects of yourself or your life will become increasingly rewarding and important to your happiness.
YOUR ESCAPE FROM REALITY
The apartment, money, business, house, charity or precious possessions offers you the most sublime escape from reality, very close to the Neptune-Saturn trine on Wednesday 12th June. After Jupiter changes signs on Wednesday 26th June, the future is being set up all around you, as by 2014 the planet of solutions, growth, opportunity and expansion will form a perfect connection in your horoscope, in the zone of your astrological chart associated with property, finances, philanthropy and material assets . You’ll almost hear the ‘click’ of the cosmic clockwork as Jupiter arrives in Cancer in the closing days of June and takes up his new position, forming a building trine to Neptune. Close to Thursday 18th July, when the Jupiter-Neptune trine becomes exact, you will see the results of this sea change. You are hovering on the edge of an altered state, thanks to a forthcoming turning point involving the material world. As always, keep it real. There is no Leo person on earth who wouldn’t welcome this cycle, given the hell that arrived with Saturn in Virgo a few years ago, in your financial sector. Nevertheless, don’t disappear into some kind of Nag Champa haze. Stay grounded.
IT’S ALL ABOUT ME
Venus moves into Leo from Thursday 27th June so your image, brand and look become a priority for someone else as well – this person will take the journey with you. The conjunction from Venus to Ceres in Leo on Sunday 30th June lets you know that a certain amount of compromise and sharing will be necessary in July. It’s been quite a long time since you had a cluster of heavenly bodies in your own sign like this, so halfway through 2013 you will suddenly become aware of how you look, and how you are seen. It’s all about you, but why shouldn’t it be? Your name, face, reputation or style really matters. The shell leads people to the kernel.
CUPID IN SAGITTARIUS
The asteroid Cupido (Cupid) is in the horoscope zone ruling children, godchildren and young relatives – plus any children connected to you through work or charity. The Sun-Cupid opposition on Wednesday 12th June shows you exactly why strong feelings and powerful passions sometimes matter more than what is sensible or logical. The Fifth House of your horoscope, where you find Cupid until October, is also where you attract lovers who either bring pregnancy, adoption or stepchildren – or pass their own younger nieces, nephews, godchildren onto you. One way or another Leo, you are going to find the generation born 20 years or more after you (or the relationships which bring them closer) a potent source. Cupid is the son of Venus. He’s just as you imagine – armed with a bow and arrow. He describes all the sudden, powerful emotional magnets in your life and you’re really going to feel this in June, or see a particular person manifest Cupid in quite a classic way.
Basically if your Sun Sign or Rising Sign is Leo then all you need to know about June is this – you have three weeks to push everything as far as you can, as fast as you can, with your friend – or the group. This offer will not last. The closing days of June also mark a sea change with your money, property, charity or business for July, when an escape from the real world will swim into view.
YOUR PERSONAL EVEREST
You are Sir Edmund Hillary and you are scaling your own personal Everest with the assistance of Jupiter, the planet associated with the big picture and an eagle-eye view of the world. The New Moon in Gemini on Saturday 8th June and another Jupiter peak near Wednesday 19th June lets you know you have a limited offer in your horoscope. Until Tuesday 25th June follow up every person and possibility which has appeared, like magic, since April. Then go back and retrace your steps with that never-ending journey which began in 2012. Back then it was all high hopes and big plans. So why has it been no delivery? Answer – timing. But the timing is right now. You have the unconditional support, enthusiasm and encouragement of particular people or organisations which will make a lasting difference to your daily workload, studies or charity role. Then there are purely vocational pursuits, connected to your place in the world, your personal definition of success and status, and so on. There will not be a chance like this again for another 12 years. Use it or lose it. Tip – help the helper! That abundant individual, department or company which is the gift that goes on giving, actually needs your input. Unless you plug in properly the electricity can’t begin. When you do – you will move mountains. Sometimes Jupiter manifests quite literally. So the person in question may live in a high-rise apartment or work in a space with vast views. This person may also have Jupiter’s eagle-eyed view of the world via constant flights. You may be looking at someone who is noticeably taller (thus giving him/her the long view of the room). Corporations and companies which also fit this bill (think vast horizons, the big picture, elevated views) could easily bring Jupiter to life for you. The planet of solutions, growth and empire-building has precisely three weeks left in your house of success and achievement so if you didn’t push big buttons since April, push them now!
YOUR FRIENDS, SOCIAL MEDIA AND TRIBE
Just remember that the ‘firm’ plans or ‘absolutely final’ arrangements you are making with friends, social media or a group project will go backwards and forwards after Monday 10th June, as Mercury is retrograde shadow. That should not stop your basic faith, yet until Mercury is out of shadow on Sunday 4th August there could be scrapped plans, changed schedules or hollow verbal agreements. This is perfectly fine and nothing will stick – but for an organised life just hold on until August is here before you go toasting your brand new social life or an exceptional and extraordinary group venture.
The tribe may be based around a work project, a feelgood event, a shared ambition or something more nebulous. Yet repeatedly until 2014 you are going to find that a group of people bring your dreams closer. Within this group there will be at least one firm new friend, possibly more.
Another friend, who has been with you for years, will be worth his or her weight in gold starting in late June, with obvious signs throughout the next 12 months. True friendship is an incredible thing, equal to, or better than, a partnership. This person expects nothing and gives everything and all you have to do is be yourself.
Your social media will explode if you feed it in this cycle. Twitter followers could become real friends and your numbers will increase – if that matters to you. Explore new and alternative social media too as this could be a goldmine for you once Jupiter makes the ingress into Cancer at the end of June.
YOUR ESCAPE FROM REALITY
The man or woman in question (and you know exactly who I am talking about) is your Disneyland Paris, your Glastonbury and your Nirvana in pyjamas. The Neptune-Saturn trine on Wednesday 12th June helps firm up this outlet. How can a relationship with a former, current or potential partner be so other-worldly, when the person in question is flesh and blood? The answer lies in this Neptune cycle which allows you to float and drift on the tides of your own longing for escape. Reality has absolutely nothing to do with this relationship. It’s like an anaesthetic from being alive and that’s why June is so intriguing; as long as you pledge to return to planet earth after these periodic escapes, you can appreciate them for all they are. Outlets! It is extremely common for people to meet Neptune manifestations in human form in this cycle so by 2014 you could be entwined with someone who has heavenly bodies in Pisces (for example) or a serious addiction to meditation, drugs, alcohol, the ocean, fantasy fiction, alternative worlds on the internet and so on. They’re not quite…here. But that’s half the appeal, non?
HOUSE, FLAT, FAMILY, HOUSEHOLD
The asteroid Cupido (Cupid) is at large near the Sun-Cupid opposition on Wednesday 12th June and powerful feelings influence outcomes with the house, flat, family or household. Logic has nothing to do with it. Cupido is all about irrational emotion! Cupid is the son of Venus. He’s just as you imagine – armed with a bow and arrow. Thus the characteristic ‘sting’ which you have already felt, or may be about to feel. This is living. It is about your lust for life. Therefore suspend all critical judgement or intellectualisation of what is going on. You, he, she or they are under the influence of Cupid and this cycle is all about what does not make sense, but is very hard to resist. Falling in love with a house? A whole town? An entire family tree? Sure. On a smaller scale if you find your decorator getting worked up about kitchen paint colour you’ll know for sure that this person is manifesting Cupid.
If your Sun Sign or Rising Sign is Virgo then use the first three weeks of June to pursue every job offer, award, competition, new business option, scholarship, professional opening or other success doorway you can. The door won’t stay open forever.
EXPLORE AND EXPAND – OR ELSE!
Deep breath. Start your engine. You have three weeks to beat your own personal best as a traveller, student of life, explorer of ideas and international woman/man of mystery. You’ve been pulled this way repeatedly since last year but this is the big finish. Why? Because the patterns in your astrological chart have kept you in a state of suspended animation. Yet you have not wasted anything, as every single piece of good karma you earned (even years ago) will now return to you. Late May was full of possibility and switched-on Librans went for it – across the country or across the world. Now keep the momentum going, as the New Moon in Gemini on Saturday 8th June is so useful and when the Sun joins Jupiter on Wednesday 19th there is a big reward for having ploughed in time, energy, faith and hope with more to come right up until Tuesday 25th June. This is a grand finale for Jupiter in the last stages of his cycle and you would be crazy to pass up the final round of opportunities. No matter how accomplished you already are in terms of Europe, Australasia, America or more exotic locations and cultures, there is always more. No matter how much you have achieved on the internet, in publishing, in self-development or academia – you can always go higher. Right people, right time, right place. Just gather all the strands together and act as if you can’t fail – as if it’s pre-ordained that this should come together beautifully. It very well may – and on a scale even you hadn’t fully expected.
THE CLIMB TO SUCCESS BY 2014 BEGINS IN JUNE
Your horoscope cannot force you to be successful – but if you want to achieve big things in a new field, or pull off something you dare not even hope for, start small and start now. The path is being cleared between August and Christmas. However allow for changes, delays or complications at the start.
Do be aware that Mercury is shadow retrograde in June so you may prefer to have Plan B or alternatives – or even wait until August to fully commit. The outlook is excellent but there may be a wobbly situation if you rush it; try to either read the fine print or have some back-ups available. This strongly applies to contracts, new jobs, awards, ambitious business plans and so on. Mercury is the messenger of the gods and when he is shadow retrograde, he fools most people (including some astrologers, who haven’t done their history homework.) It may seem as if the news is going to stick, and the letters will arrive, and the advertisement is watertight, and the discussions will hold and the signatures are a commitment. Be savvy, though. It really helps to have a safety net under your brand new feelgood factor. If you can allow for a wobbly situation until the first week of August, though, you can maintain the faith about your dazzling new future and still come up smiling. Minimal hassles.
If are signing or in negotiations before August, allow for news or ‘commitments’ which may change shape after Monday 10th June, when the planet of communication, information and negotiation goes shadow retrograde. Play ping-pong with the person or company in question and keep smiling.
YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR TRIBE
You’ll have co-operation and collaboration in a remarkably tribal and social cycle which is warming up as you read this. Venus moves into Leo from Thursday 27th June so this becomes a win-win situation for you and this man or woman. The conjunction from Venus to Ceres in Leo on Sunday 30th June lets you know that compromise is essential. A feeling of emotional entitlement and the inability to let go, may characterise one particular person – or even the tribe as a whole. That’s par for the course with a Ceres transit, but as you are on track with this friend or group throughout August too, you need to make sure the map is good to go, straight from the start. In other words, do not set up any situation with this person/these people where ‘I’m not being taken seriously’ or ‘Take this seriously’ becomes the thought balloon in the room. You, he, she or they are going to have to share in order to make the most of this long-running cycle, when it’s very simply about collaboration, co-operation and negotiation.
Your tribal involvement – social media, social life, social acquaintances – is enormously important on a karmic level in the middle of 2013 as everything you do and say creates a notch in someone else’s soul!
WORK OR HEALTH ESCAPE ROUTES
The Saturn-Neptune trine will allow you to take both feet off the ground and escape into Never-Never Land thanks to some aspect of your daily workload – no matter if you are a professional, a student, self-employed or a volunteer. The role or task is rather like a spa or a sanctuary. Plunge in but remember to return to the real world when it’s time or you may find yourself treading water in a weird kind of unreality.
This also applies to your health and your physical body. What you eat, put into your system and drink. How you use your body. In a few cases, the medical side of your existence too. However this cycle is manifesting for you, just remember non-reality and unreality are characteristic as Neptune symbolises the great escape. You can see why this would be an issue if it goes too far and if your physical body is becoming a container for something best described as a way out! So just be aware. That’s all your horoscope provides anyway – uber awareness.
If your Sun Sign or Rising Sign is Libra then June is a turning point for your mission, position and ambition. Jupiter’s change of sign in the closing days of the month paves the way for the most remarkable professional, philanthropic or academic cycle in many years, with hard evidence by 2014 that you were right to aim higher.
THE LAST CHANCE CASH SALOON
Enjoy the final round of financial, charity, property or business cocktails in the Last Chance Saloon. Mix the ingredients correctly and you should be delighted with the way life opens up and improves. The solutions or opportunities for abundance which manifested in late May require momentum, so keep going, no matter if you are saving money, making it or gaining from ‘cash in kind’ benefits as the New Moon in Gemini on Saturday 8th June rings a big bell. Then, when the Sun joins Jupiter on Wednesday 19th there is a real ‘moment’ when you will receive rewards for having ploughed in time, energy, faith and hope since 2012. Good karma accumulated through the most simple and unconditional gestures by you, even years ago, now returns in useful and suprising ways. You should, by rights, feel richer and more abundant on a level not possible for years. In fact, April through June may well go down as a golden age when new people, situations and organisations came in – and old connections and set-ups truly delivered. As always, though, it’s down to you. You have until Tuesday 25th June to follow up the new connections and contacts which have been swirling around you since April. Prince Charles and Bill Gates are Scorpio – so charity and philanthropy may bring a grand finale for you, if you’ve been building the commitment.
TRAVEL, PUBLISHING, EDUCATION – THE WOW FACTOR
Off you go. The big new (dazzling) pathway is being cleared and between August and Christmas you could be exploring your own country, Europe, Australasia, the USA or further afield at the most ambitious level yet. Never say ‘never’ on this cycle as even if you feel you don’t have the time, freedom or money to travel – or even take a sabbatical elsewhere – the opportunity will appear by this time next year. The Jupiter cycle you are entering in late June has not been with you for 12 years and it will allow you to go the next level in a new place, or with a culture you find intriguing. Other nationalities, passports, accents and belief systems will help you not once, but several times. Clues and signs will emerge as early as the first week of June, so be ready for them.
Play with this cycle but be aware of your timing, though. Things are looking up hugely from June, but if you are signing, buying, committing or in negotiations before August, realise that from Monday 10th June, when Mercury, the planet of communication, information and negotiation goes shadow retrograde, things could unravel.
Prepare for an uncertain take-off until Mercury, the Messenger of the Gods, can safely assist you to be on your merry way, no matter if you are looking to travel, move or build a connection with another nationality or culture. Insure yourself, have Plan B and allow for changes or delays before the first week of August. You know this could be good. In fact it could be outstanding. And that’s not going to stop – the mood will lift in the final week of June and remain elevated throughout. Do be savvy about the complications at the start, though, and plan around them.
Academia, education, self-development, digital publishing, traditional publishing and belief systems of all kinds are also part of this cycle. You are about to beat your own personal best with all or any of these, with sure signs in June and amazing options ahead. Again, just remember that Mercury is shadow, so from 10th June allow for one situation to swing backwards and forwards until August. From that point forward though the coast is clear. You are going to ascend to new peaks of achievement and enjoyment as this is the National Geographic cycle for the mind.
SUCCESS, STATUS AND AMBITION
You’ll have co-operation and collaboration over professional, academic or charity roles and commitments after Venus moves into Leo from Thursday 27th June – then the conjunction of Venus to Ceres in Leo on Sunday 30th June lets you know that as July comes closer, a new arrangement must be hammered out. Ceres describes people and organisations with a big emotional investment in ownership and you will have to play this game very carefully. It is completely worth it as the creativity, productivity and abundance which could be shared among all the players is impressive. In fact it is the stuff of life. Just be mindful of the fact that he, she or they may have issues about not being taken seriously. Factor that in. There will almost certainly have to be a fair roster of ownership, access, time and privilege by July – just because the alternative is pretty unthinkable. Your success in life, though, is where the life actually is! So buy into the situation fully and feel the rhythm pulse through every cell. You simply have to take this journey if you want to be at the core of what matters, in June and July.
ESCAPE THROUGH THE NEXT GENERATION
Your children, godchildren or younger relatives encourage you to break away from what is normal, real and ordinary and plunge into something utterly different. This also applies to a work or charity involvement with younger people. And of course to any relationship which may bring the next generation closer to you, in some way.
What happens in June, though, enables you to elevate yourself and leave earth behind – it’s your way of washing your hands of what is all too real, and seeking an utterly different space. Neptune in the Fifth House of your horoscope is about younger people born 20 years or more after you. The connection can be at a distance or deeply personal, woven by DNA and ties of kinship. However you play it, though, this connection is a remarkable alternative to what normally takes place in your world. Of course there is an element of pure unreality about what is unfolding. Almost like a game of let’s pretend. Still, you need the relief and release of this, as much as you need tea in the morning and a blanket at night. It’s the stuff of unreality which is often the stuff of life.
Basically, if your Sun Sign or Rising Sign is Scorpio, then the key to 2014 is a part of your own country, Europe, the USA, Australasia or further afield. The situation will begin to build from the final week of this month with a straightforward path opening in August.
BICYCLES BUILT FOR TWO
You could be like The Goodies and have a bicycle built for three. Alternatively you could do what your horoscope suggests and get completely and fully on board with the person who is now so much closer – and so much more important. The Seventh House of the chart, where we find your ruler Jupiter, is most abundant in terms of the solutions and tremendous growth and opportunities it offers sexually or romantically. And of course there are other benefits too – this key man or woman in your world could take you so much further. It really is now or never! However, this cycle can also manifest in business or professional partnerships, too. This person could be so good for you on whatever level you are ready for. Personal, professional or something else…
The New Moon in Gemini on Saturday 8th June is the path forward that you have been looking for. When the Sun joins your ruler Jupiter on Wednesday 19th it’s public – everyone can see you two and where you’re at. You have until Tuesday 25th June to pursue the bicycle built for two. Use it or lose it. Get in the saddle.
A tremendously high number of Sagittarian marital or relationship milestones are set for June. Commit or split, it works either way. And it works on exactly the right level. The optimism is palpable. You’re crazy if you don’t use the next three weeks.
If you invested far more emotional energy into loathing someone (it happens) then you will be amazed at how beneficial an enemy, rival or opponent can be. A walkover victory with a weak opponent who actually increases your own chances? That’s possible. A foe who is good for you – in the same way that green vegetables you dislike are good for you? That’s possible too. Think about it. Your ruler Jupiter moves in mysterious ways, just like the U2 song, but this planetary ruler of yours never fails to deliver.
SHOW ME THE MONEY
Okay, so first of all, you stand to gain from cash, property, charity, business or possessions on an epic scale, starting in late June. The cycle runs until mid 2014 so you are in a brilliant position. However – Mercury is shadow retrograde so you may prefer to have Plan B or alternatives – or even wait until August to fully commit. The outlook is excellent but there may be a wobbly situation if you rush it; try to either read the fine print or have some back-ups available. This is the kind of cycle when the price is fixed, then like blancmange. When you change your mind. When a person or organisation retracts a promise or written commitment. When something is not worth the paper it’s printed on – and so on.
It’s over soon enough so just play ball for a few weeks. Enjoy this new game because it’s going to make you more abundant and ultimately it will empower you. Do be aware of the cosmic shenanigans that Mercury always brings, though. Don’t be fooled. Sure the feelgood factor is intensely high, right from the final week of June, but if you go full tilt into this as if it’s all going to stick from day one – you may regret it. At the very least you could be retracing your steps or spinning your wheels until the first week of August.
Things are looking up hugely from June, but if you are signing or in negotiations before August, allow for wobbles and wibblers, as the planet of communication, information and negotiation goes shadow retrograde.
TRAVEL, ACADEMIA, PUBLISHING, INTERNET, FOREIGN CULTURES
You’ll have co-operation and collaboration over all this (see above) as Venus moves into Leo from Thursday 27th June and it becomes a two-way street. Of course journeys, courses, workshops, digital publishing, online life, books and other cultures are part of your kit. You’re a Sagittarian and well-known for some or all of this, already. June is personal, though, and it’s also a duet, rather than a solo venture. Think of it like balancing the scales with someone or meeting them halfway on a high-wire. The conjunction from Venus to Ceres in Leo on Sunday 30th June lets you know this can’t be approached without special and careful consideration for the person or organisation which is profoundly emotional and subjective about the situation you face. In other words, share cautiously. Negotiate so that this man, woman or group collectively feels confident about your intentions and get it to the stage where the power is meted out evenly between all the players. Ultimately this trip, course, book or website is about power. And that may apply to a particular location on the map or a nationality too.
How do you escape from reality? The ground beneath your feet? The overly familiar and the mundane? One answer rests with your house, family, flat, home town, household or homeland. You played with this in 2012. You were let off the hook and given some way out, or way through, that felt like a genuine alternative. A blissful little comfort zone that was never entirely real, on some level, but nevertheless gave you an out. Well…it’s back in June. Either in a new disguise, or revamped and refreshed. This family member, flatmate, particular home or patch of home turf has a shimmering glow around it, which sets it apart from boring old normality and reality. The glow is good. Stand in the glow. Just remember to duck your head out occasionally as you desperately need to remember that this is an alternative to regular life, not actually your regular life.
If Sagittarius is your Sun Sign or Rising Sign, the most you need to know about June is that the closing days describe a welcome turning point in your future financial, charity, business or property situation. One that could empower you hugely by 2014.
IT’S GETTING BETTER ALL THE TIME
Born with the Sun in Capricorn you are well-known for viewing life as some epic mountain climb on a tough rope. In actual fact, you should be feeling far more sustained and supported by the universe as it’s the minutiae of daily existence which is now working for you. It may actually be your work (be you duchess or staff) which now rewards you. Or do you volunteer or describe your carer role, as your daily vocation? Students work harder than anyone else if they hold down a part-time job as well as exams…However life has kept you occupied to date, June is a turning point when you realise that more can happen in three weeks, than has happened in the last three months.
You should be feeling content with solutions or opportunities which manifested in late May. The New Moon in Gemini on Saturday 8th June is the next step forward then on Wednesday 19th there is a bright, shining moment when everything you put into particular people, places or set-ups since 2012 pays off. This is living – it should certainly feel like it, because it’s about your lifestyle.
You have until Tuesday 25th June to follow up the new connections and contacts since April, but you should also get more from old set-ups, situations or structures. You will not have a chance like this again for 12 years, as Jupiter is in the last stages of his cycle through your house of daily life, day-to-day details and lifestyle.
Of course the Sixth House of your chart also describes the ‘well-oiled machine’ that is required if your body is to carry your soul successfully into a happier future. Whatever it takes to remove an issue, or bring you a chance to have a more balanced mind-body-spirit connection, will now take place. Jupiter is Optimus Maximus in Roman history. Be optimistic. Maximise the maximum you are given by fate. Enjoy the thunderbolt. June is about rapid, massive growth and that includes your physical wellbeing and your own version of the ‘well-oiled machine.’
PAST, PRESENT, POTENTIAL PARTNERS
Have a baby – develop the marriage. Go into business together or plan an ambitious trip. Pursue the property that feels more like a home for two, than the current one – or just play with the notion of partnership and elevate it far beyond the original marital vows, or the commitments you made when you decided to become a de factor couple.
If you are single you will be given the chance to date, seriously, a person who is well-educated or well-travelled (or both) by 2014. The mood may shift as early as the final week of June when Jupiter moves into your sector of dating, mating and relating. This person has the big picture on life and if he or she manifests Jupiter completely, will have a very particular philosophy or belief system. A true man or woman of faith.
However Jupiter visits your chart, if you are single and don’t want to be, you are now on track for one new relationship, possibly more – with sure signs from August, when Mercury finally moves direct.
Couples’ plans or singletons’ high hopes may take a zig-zag path until early August as what is a fixed plan may wobble – or a firm commitment will be delayed, reversed or take a circuitous path. Bear that in mind when you are signing, accepting signatures or paying substantial sums of money! Overall, though, you are right to feel hopeful about a bigger and better future, either together or with someone new. It is also entirely possible that a person who could educate you and enlighten you will boomerang back to you, by the middle of 2014. Again there may be small signs and clues after Jupiter makes the ingress into Cancer in the final week of June…but allow for a wonky beginning!
Do you have enemies or rivals? Good. One of them will benefit you, actually helping and enabling you in a way that no other person could. Watch the pattern unfold from August and sense the possibilities from the final week of June.
In all cases (above) this man or woman is at the heart of a wibbly-wobbly walk in your horoscope from Monday 10th June, when the planet of communication, information and negotiation goes shadow retrograde. So the word is not the final word – yet remember Jupiter’s presence too. You can and should believe, because this cycle is going to be big.
FINANCIAL, PROPERTY, BUSINESS, CHARITY CHOICES
So many choices have sprung up around you since April. Only you can decide which one is worth the compromise. You may have to be more courageous. You may have to try harder than you normally would. Perhaps you’ll have to allow for flaws and faults with people, organisations, arrangements – in order to get the good stuff in your hand. When it comes to everything you own, earn or owe your horoscope is offering freedom and independence (Diana) or security and commitment (Juno). Not on a plate. You have to work for it. But the right person or situation is there.
Minerva is also in the mix. Enter wisdom. It may be a voice at the back of your mind or the actual advice of someone who is clearly brilliant enough to be a source for many people. When it comes to everything you own, earn, owe or donate – you are being given a menu from the universe that seldom occurs in quite this way. Strategise madly and be prepared to debate points with yourself every step of the way.
The arrival of other key planetary players in Leo, which rules two and three-way arrangements is going to emphasise those crucial choices. They will characterise 2013 for you and depending on which way you go, this fork in the road could utterly alter your plans for the end of the year and start of 2014.
Basically if Capricorn is your Sun Sign or Rising Sign then the most you need to know is this – things are on the turn with your former, current or potential partner from the final week, and from August through mid-2014 you two could be on a spectacular new roll.
