Horoscope for the week beginning June 1
Tip of the week
When it comes to major synchronicities that manifest as trends and events linked to the ‘transiting planets,’ which measures current influences, as opposed to the perspective astrologers take when observing the influence of planets in the Natal Chart, the planets observed are often the giants and the far planets. These include Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto and Chiron is in there too. True, there are now other far planets that have been discovered in the solar system, but I will leave them out for now.
The closer and generally smaller ‘rocky’ planets including Mars, Venus, Mercury and even the Sun and Moon do ever play vital roles, but because their influence is more transient, their impact not as deep. Interestingly, it is the reverse in the Natal Chart. Currently, the Sun is in Gemini along with Mercury, Venus is in Cancer and Mars is in Aquarius, conjunct the South Node. The influences of these factors are featured in the horoscope sign entries and are woven with those of the far planets as well, but they represent the more immediate, outer synchronicities or ‘apparently’ random and purely circumstantial flow of events.
Mars and Pluto play special roles in these two basic categories of big and far planets, on one hand, and close and rocky planets, on the other. Mars is the first planet that reaches beyond the scope of our Earth/Moon reality. Thus it is symbolic of pioneering and courage. Currently conjunct the Lunar South Node in Aquarius, the influence can be described as ‘activating patterns, plans and processes that have been gestating for a long time, in some cases, literally decades’. Does this make sense in your life situation right now? I mentioned Pluto because although a far planet it is also small and rocky, more on it next time.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
A busy time continues and circumstances and inspirations too are pushing you to attend to a variety of fronts. You are determined to bring a fresh and perhaps new level of beauty to your home. In some respects, your attitude may be deemed radical, as in tackling or initiating major projects. Beyond clearing and even renovating, you want to build.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Uranus in your sign indicates revolutionary measures. The build-up of these began weeks ago, perhaps even months. In the bigger scheme, even these just represent the beginning. Promotions originating from your own drive or coming in as earned returns are featured. Either way, the learning curve is steep.
Sun and Mercury in Gemini are helping you to take new leads. Creative interests are a core motivation. Yet, security is also on your mind. Your moods may be up and down in this regard and may well be linked to irrational emotions more than to outer realities. This is a good reminder that we all perceive things more as we are than as they are.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
A busy time behind the scenes continues. This may include a process of deep reflection and contemplation or simply a desire for some downtime. However, you also feel inspired to express yourself creatively. Activities close to home, therefore, will likely prove the most satisfying. Weave productivity with relative retreat for best results.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
Life can be like a revolving door where the people we encounter come in and leave just as quickly. This is true especially of acquaintances, friends and colleagues but sometimes of family members too. In the bigger picture they are never really far or gone entirely but here on ground zero they might as well be in terms of our experiences. Trust this changing flow.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Shifts and changes in your public and professional life are underway. These can be described as expansive whether emotionally, intellectually or literally. Either way, extra effort is required as you are guided to see a bigger picture. It includes reaching out to connect with significant others. Family, friends and prospective business partners are featured.
Your view of yourself and the world and your place in it are steadily expanding. Financial considerations remain strongly on your mind. Dreams and goals to increase either your overall sense of security or a sense of purpose and self-actualization are influencing your attitude. One without the other tends to produce an imbalance.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
The flow of destiny has ushered you to a time of need for disciplined action which requires initiative, endurance and follow through. This is resulting in what might be described as a renovation of your attitude. Improvement is a keyword. At worst, you feel pulled in different directions. Keeping it simple, keep showing up where ‘the work’ is.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Reaching out to increase your social network is important now. This can occur in-person or online. Doing so will prove enriching as you engage others and are engaged by them. In doing so, you will forge new bonds. Whether these deepen over time depends on you and your destiny. Being here now, go with this flow and embrace this opportunity.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You have work to do and as far as you are concerned you want to work smarter than harder. This includes exercising your imagination. The only danger is too much of it, which can turn into pie-in-the-sky get rich quick schemes, for example, or negative hallucinations. Positively, it will serve you by seeing through and beyond the parameters of the box.
Slowly but sure what once was, is disintegrating. In other words, you are quickly entering into a new status. This is coming with a rather sudden boost of energy that is pushing you. So, you have to meet and give to the challenge. Communication and cooperation are keywords now. Although you may feel rebellious, you are probably wise to stay humbly focused.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
Whether it is manifesting as inner work, or homework or work around the home, this is a busy time. Fortunately, you are in a creative mood. However, you may also feel the urge to escape. But doing so will probably not bring positive results. Surrender is the better attitude. The question is: surrender to what and how to do it. Ask and allow the answer to manifest.
