MONTHLY HOROSCOPE COLUMN
- JUNE 1999 -
mpatient Mars finally goes direct
on June 4th, marking a return to action, initiation, and assertion.
Cosmic green light says full speed ahead! Venus enters dramatic
Leo on the 5th--prepare for lavish displays of affection. New
Moon in expressive Gemini heralds new beginnings with regard
to siblings or neighbors. Communication opportunities increase
as does writing, reading, teaching and traveling. Summer Solstice
begins on the 21st, as the Sun enters emotional Cancer. Light
reigns supreme as the Queen of summer embraces the Sun King.
Take pleasure from the longest day of the year. Focus shifts
to home, family, nurturing, emotional needs, even rediscovering
ties to roots and country. On June 28th the Full Moon illuminates
Cancer and Capricorn concerns. Balancing emotional and professional
needs seems to be the quest these days. Jupiter, the planet of
expansion, enters sensual Taurus until Oct. 23rd. Luxury, comfort,
sensuality, and financial security occupy time. If you know your
rising sign, please read that too.
stability and happiness are goals this month. Mars in the seventh
house directs you towards social activities, (perhaps) aggression
in love matters, and going fearlessly after what you desire.
Draw on your emotional bank account and seek those that light
your fire. There is more in store to tackle this month; other
interests include finances, dealings with siblings, neighbors
and the home. Venus, planet of love, graces your fifth house
showing abundant romantic opportunities. Jupiter, planet of expansion,
dips its toe into your second house of finances. Take heart--earnings
and possessions may increase significantly. Still, wild overexpansion
is not the wisest path.
planet of abundance moves into your own industrious sign at the
end of the month. Since this occurs only once every twelve years,
do all you can to be open to expansive opportunities in travel,
personal growth and educational opportunities. If the universe
has been handing you lemons of late, now's the time to make lemonade!
Just be careful of too much physical expansion (i.e. weight gain)
and overdoing pleasures of the flesh. With Saturn in Taurus as
well, balance should be easily attained. You'll have unusual
support to change situations to your liking. Important teachers
and guides are likely to come into your life to assist personal
Moon on the 13th in your alert sign promises improved communication
and bold expressiveness. Travel, have fun and express your sign's
lively joie de vivre. With Jupiter conjoining Saturn in your
twelfth house, deeper levels of knowledge are now revealed to
you. An increased interest in spirituality goes hand in hand
as you delight in exploring hidden levels of the subconscious
mind. Your health is strong all month as June Gems celebrate
their solar returns, also known as birthdays. (For all you word
buffs out the-that's where the saying "many happy returns"
is your time of year as the Summer Solstice on the 21st heralds
the span of Cancer. Your self-confidence is strong, as you rediscover
yourself. You want to engage in group activities or join organizations.
Prior to the 21st, you may find yourself recharging spiritual
batteries and doing some soul-searching. You can accomplish aims
through community support and teamwork, rather than going it
alone. Planetary shifts are Mars going direct in your fourth
house- avoid family disputes as they may escalate. Full Moon
on the 28th finds you more centered. Listen to others concerns
as well as sharing your own needs. Mercury in your protective
sign focuses thoughts upon family and shoring up the home front.
enters your tenth house of career on the 28th. This signals a
major expansion in career opportunities, professional alliances,
raises and promotions, and what Leo loves best--greater public
recognition. Although Jupiter will only stay there for a few
months (till the end of October) tune into what you'd like to
see manifest. You might even make career changes to a healing
arts or educational profession. Though your public image and
prestige are more important to you than money, finances are on
solid ground. Money may come through professional organizations
or through your own intuitive hunches, as you trust your inner
voice. Regarding romance: a mid month square between Saturn and
Venus helps remove those rose-colored glasses, revealing new
truths about relationships.
a sacred promise to yourself as Vesta, asteroid of focus and
commitment, enters meticulous Virgo. Get ready for your yearly
career peak. Focus is on outer achievements and career success
as the Sun transits your tenth house. The Sun is now passing
over the midheaven, the highest point of your chart. This is
the point of exaltation: the hour of greatest fulfillment and
hard work. Be sure and give yourself credit for your accomplishments,
as Virgo's tend to underestimate abilities. Mars going direct
in your second house of finances enables you to receive the financial
fruits of labor. Be a financial fire starter and pioneer moneymaking
ideas. The eternal flame glows.
Venus, moving through the more public areas of your chart, places
you in the limelight. You'll find yourself in an astrological
"twilight zone" as social urges and personal needs
demand equal attention. While other signs may find this confusing,
handling gray areas is your forte. Go easy--neither too much
independence nor compromise is called for. Your interests are
widespread this month and include personal transformation, religion,
philosophy, creativity, and career. Jupiter makes a bold move
into your eighth house on the 28th. Outside capital is obtained
more easily, so you can greatly reduce debt. Your libido burns
brightly. If the likes of sudden changes, drama or intrigue spice
your love life, you won't be disappointed.
being exposed to some wonderful prospects as Jupiter planet of
abundance, shifts into your seventh house of relationships. Relish
the next few months, as this is the taste of things to come!
Marriage prospects are plentiful. Those already married will
make new friendships or turn up the romantic heat on existing
relationships. Lucrative business opportunities are forming.
Mix in the social circles of the powerful and elite. With the
Sun in your eighth house, your desire is to connect with those
who can be of material assistance to you now. The eighth house
is Scorpio's natural domain, so expect sexual energies to peak.
areas of interest for you are work, health, love, philosophy,
and foreign travel. New and prominent friends come into the picture.
As Jupiter shifts from fifth house of love affairs into the sixth
house of work, job seekers are rewarded in their search. Skills
and efficiency expand. You may hire more workers, as relations
with coworkers are happier than ever. With much activity in your
eighth house, let go of old emotional baggage and habitual responses
that no longer serve your highest good. There is a lot of potent
energy available for reinventing yourself. The New Moon on the
13th has you shining in the reflected light of your partner's
new cycle of fortune, creative expression and romance awaits
you as Jupiter tests the waters of your fifth house. Mars' change
of direction enlivens your public image and draws important notice
from higher ups. Venus in your eighth house reveals previously
unknown riches and a sixth house Sun makes certain all the hard
work pays off. During the responsible Capricorn Full Moon on
June 28th, you have the opportunity to explore whether or not
you are still committed to a partnership. Unfulfilled expectations
can create turmoil. Relationships can turn toxic! Family matters
can also be exhaustingly complicated. Be sensible and keep your
wits about you--a little self-control goes a long way.
the Gemini Sun and Leo Venus in your creativity and partnership
houses, respectively. Redirect passions and charm your way throughout
the month. New personal pleasures and sensual fantasies can be
fulfilled. Jupiter's move into your fourth house breathes much
needed happiness into domestic affairs. Expansion of an existing
home, moving to larger quarters, or purchasing a second home
are likely options. Maintain a global perspective that allows
you to see beyond small issues, (that after all, is what you're
famous for.) Emotional expression is becoming easier--blocked
feelings and tendency to repress emotions is lessening. Important
psychological principles are being revealed, illuminating present
financial reward may arrive from the past! This brings temporary
uplift, for career is basically on hold for a time. Channel energies
to inner, psychological progress rather than outward goals. Fourth
house concerns brings the need to deal with family and domestic
issues. New Moon on the 13th helps convey the information and
insight you need--take this as a golden opportunity to tell someone
how you feel. Jupiter begins a visit to your third house of communication.
Sales and marketing activities flourish. Students do better in
school, and relations with siblings and neighbors improve. Not
a bad idea to put a new car, fax or computer on your "fish"
