Astrology 411: With the lunar eclipse occurring in early June, it’s a busy and important time to move projects forward. What does that mean for you? Well, one sign will notice that this is a positive time to make a statement in the workplace. (That means you can start screaming, “Show me the money!”) And another sign should start concentrating on their greatest dreams and desires (and why they deserve it) in order to start receiving the goods! For an in-depth, personalized reading on your own birth chart, which will help you gain insight into your love life, career, money, your strengths, soul’s purpose, and even your karmic past, you can contact Danielle at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Aries, the transiting north node (soul’s purpose) is currently moving through your solar 9th house of higher education, foreign travel, and philosophical beliefs. And with the lunar eclipse occurring on June 4th, it’s a busy and important time to move projects forward. But more importantly, it’s time to throw out all those limiting beliefs that we carry with us, and expand your mind. Travel if you can, however, if you aren’t able to stamp your passport this time around, travel through your mind. Journey inside and be open to the new ideas and philosophies that are presenting themselves to you. This is a time of change, and the eclipse is speeding things up. Although we all know that Aries definitely does not need help with speed…I still see this as a good thing for you…just hold on tight and let the wind carry you to new horizons.
Taurus, Jupiter (luck and expansion) is nearing its last degree of Taurus, and will be making its way into Gemini on June 11th. Gemini happens to rule your solar 2nd house of personal resources, talents, and gifts. AND with the transiting Sun and Venus also currently in your solar 2nd house, it looks like Jupiter is going to add some excitement to the mix. With Venus still in retrograde motion until June 27th, the focus still seems to be on your values and self-worth. Concentrate on what you desire and why you deserve it and Jupiter will soon deliver the goods.
Gemini, Happy birthday, and may I wish a lovely B’nai Mitzvah to the twins! Lucky for you, Jupiter (luck and expansion) moves into your sign this month which also means it’s in your solar 1st house of self. This is a great placement for all aspects of your life. Two thumbs up…or 4 if you so desire. The only downside with this transit is that Jupiter also rules abundance; and since “sometimes” you can be a little scattered (don’t shoot the messenger), it means that in order for you to get the full potential (and positive aspects) of Jupiter, it’s time to borrow some earth from your good ole Taurus neighbor. Find some grounding and you could also find some karmic luck!
Cancer, this month it’s time to scream it from the rooftops, but please read and re-read this before you do. (I’m saving you now, you can thank me later.) Mercury (communication) will soon be moving into your solar 1st house of self. No problem there. But, with Venus still retrograde until June 27th, and the transiting sun in your solar 12th house, it’s a good idea to gather all the ‘stuff’ that’s on your mind and bring it to the forefront. However, there could be a lot of ‘junk’ at this so called forefront. The good news is that Mercury transiting your solar 1st house is acting as a microphone for you and with it being in your sign, your intuition is heightened. However, (again) Mercury in Cancer can also tend to the emotional side. Kapeesh? Make sure you have a clear head and a clear heart before you make any decisions and/or announcements. Testing, testing, 1,2,3….
Leo, we know you have a larger than life personality, and always know how to work a room. Duh! You are a Leo after all (the best sign there is…OK I admit, I have no favorites. I just knew I would make you happy if I said that.) Back to the story…so, we know you can talk to anyone and anything. Check! However, transiting Mercury (communication) is moving into your solar 12th house of the subconscious, and with it moving into Cancer this is a really important time to take a step back and tap into your intuition. Have any decisions that you need to make? Well, you already have the answer inside of you! It’s just that our ego likes to block it with confusion. (Fun game had by all.) Take advantage of Mercury moving into a water sign and also in your 12th house. I bet by the end of this month you will have all the answers that you’ve been looking for. Again, they’re already inside of you…sometimes we just need to take a step back in order to move forward…then let the party resume. L’Chaim!
Virgo, Jupiter (expansion and luck) is moving into solar 10th house of career where it will be meeting up with the Sun and Venus. This is a positive time to make a statement in the workplace, and as soon as Venus turns direct on June 27th, I would start looking for money signs. (Just sayin’.) Also, transiting Mars is still in your solar 1st house of self, this is a great energy for motivation and a great opportunity to do just about anything your heart desires. Been thinking about dieting? What about self-improvement? How about even picking up a new hobby? Mars is a good motivating factor to push you forward with anything you’ve been thinking about doing, but just haven’t had the chutzpah to do. Take a chance, the time is now!
Libra, good news! Saturn (restriction) turns direct on June 25th and since it’s currently in your solar 1st house of self, this shift in energy will soon enable you to feel like you’re free to move about the cabin again…and with ease. Time to tip the scales and regain more balance in your life. While Saturn was in retrograde motion, it was asking you to be more serious about what you what out of your life. Now that you have taken the time to think things through (ahem), after the 25th you can go ahead and initiate your plans! Also, Uranus has been hanging out in your solar 7th house of relationships for some time now. Lots of things shaking up? Seems like nothing is working out with dating? It’s time to try something different and go out with someone you would never normally go out with. Uranus is about breaking old patterns so that the new can come in. Try it! The worst that can happen is a free din. Whoops, did I say that? Well, I guess it depends on who is paying, right? Good luck.
Scorpio, why do we always end up talking about sex and intimacy with you? Well, we find ourselves here again and I have a feeling that frankly…you just don’t mind. June brings with it a lot of activity occurring in your solar 8th house of intimacy and deep sharing. With Venus still in retrograde motion, it’s not uncommon for relationships to do the infamous back and forth dance or in some cases…just end abruptly. Take a deep breath and know that energies are at an all-time high right now, making this a good time to take a step back and get clear on what you want in your life. With Venus passing over the sun on Tuesday, June 5th, this is a rare event that won’t happen again until 2117! Yes, this is spectacular and if you don’t already believe in magic, hopefully this event will inspire you to believe that there is always something new and amazing just around the corner. The lesson: if it’s not him or her…it WILL be someone else…and better than you ever imagined them to be. Believe in magic and believe in miracles – they are both occurring this month.
Sagittarius, since you like honesty, here it goes. This month is not for the faint of heart, but I’m sure you’ve already realized that. If not, consider yourself the chosen one. (Oh wait, aren’t we already? Umm congrats, you win a direct pass to #ihavenoideawhatsheistalkingaboutbutitsoundsgood-ville?) Please continue. This month starts off with a powerful full moon lunar eclipse occurring in your sign on June 4th. Eclipses act like lightning bolts and speed up fated events. Feel like someone pressed fast-forward? Yup, that’s what it’s asking of you…well not really “asking”…that’s what it’s doing for you. Lucky you. No sarcasm there. This is a great thing. All this combined with Venus still in your solar 7th house of relationships is a blessing, and one you’ve been (secretly) asking for. We’re all here for love and the Universe is making sure you’re on the right path. Again, Sag, you’re always lucky so just make sure if you’re playing your odds in Vegas, you take your Don Julio goggles off…gotta separate the girls from the women and the boys from the men. Yes, you’re lucky, but even your buddy Winn Dixie knows you still have free will. (Clever little bunny, hop hop).
Capricorn, Venus is now in your solar 6th house of day to day work. For most, this may seem like a drag; however, for you Cappy, I bet I just lit up your life! Yes, no, maybe just a little?? Venus rules balance, love, and, money; and since Capricorns are driven by structure and the need to achieve, I couldn’t think of a better placement of Venus for you…well I could…it could be in your house of romance and fun, but let’s get back to business Capricorn. You’ll have plenty of time for fun after you’ve established yourself as an authority figure in your career, right? The time is now; put all the pieces together so that when Venus turns direct on June 27th you’ll be ready to “show me the money.”
Aquarius, Venus is still retrograde (until June 27th) and is transiting your 5th house of fun, romance, and creativity. I would not be the slightest surprised if someone suddenly appeared in your life again. I know you thought you got rid of them the first time around, but chances are if they are coming back they just might have something profound to say. My advice: listen to their words, but pay attention to their actions. (How does that saying go?) Yes, it applies here and no, Bubbe did not make me tell you this. However, she will be happy you listened.
Pisces, the Asteroid Pallas is currently conjuncting Uranus in your solar 2nd house of talents, gifts, and personal resources. And by that you mean…? Yes, by that I mean that it’s time to find out what fuels you. What are your hidden talents? With Uranus in the mix don’t be surprised if you have flashes of insight or if things are suddenly starting to make more sense. Are you seeing the larger picture? Putting the pieces tighter? Great! This is a good time to channel your energies into a creative project that you’ve been putting off because of too many long hours at the office. Remember, you have to feed yourself first. And by that I mean feeding your heart and soul too…
