Horoscope for the week beginning June 15
Tip of the Week
Summer Solstice occurs on June 21, marking the official start to summer here in the Northern Hemisphere.
It is something of an irony that when summer begins, the hours of daylight begin to decrease. While the amount and the angle of the sun’s light. is pretty much identical, and the weather is not far off, what is different, as usual, is the backdrop of the positions of the planets.
Mercury and Venus can never be far from the Sun, from our perspective here on Earth, 48 and 78 degrees respectively. Yet, their relationship and especially combined with all the remaining planets is ‘always’ different. This is where the signs based on the seasons, and the constellations too, provide a backdrop of measurement.
Among the more interesting current events is Mars conjunct the South Node in Aquarius and Venus conjunct the North Node in Leo. The mythical lovers in opposing signs and conjunct the Moon’s Nodes is indicative of the beginning of new love relationships and quite possibly based on the sudden ending of others.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You have reached something of a pinnacle point in your life. This could mean that you have climbed to a high point or that you are ‘up to here’ with certain people or situations, or both. Either way, it feels powerful. Now you are ready to make your next series of moves. Redirecting your focus from rebellion to creativity is probably in your best interests.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
You are seeing a bigger picture and the message you are receiving is that you have work to do. This could well include investments in acquiring knowledge. You are increasingly aware of the importance of diversification. This can imply accessing your full range of talents, skills, and resources of adding products to your financial portfolio.
The recent New Moon in your sign is destined to activate new initiatives. It will push you to access your intuitions. This could include a review of your dreams, both the positive ones and perhaps those that produce subconscious disturbances. On the high side, it will push you to new modes of creative self-expression. At least you will feel an urge to play.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
Balancing timeout with time spent to pursue your creative interests could prove productive this week. Something is pushing you to exercise your talents. There is also an inventive influence you could access. Drafting new designs or outlines could be your best bet. Meanwhile, you are keen to deepen your commitment to home and family.
Every now and then life guides us to direct a ‘beginner’s mind’ attitude and this is true for you now. Willingness is the key. Taking an experiential and experimental approach is implied. Yet, the learning curve implied is deeper than mere one-offs. The goal is to really learn how to be better at business and/or earning money in new ways.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Your personal power is rising steadily. It does require a steady process of learning and of unlearning too. Unlearning can be as simple as replacing the old with the new, but sometimes it requires that you see yourself and the world and yourself in the world in new ways. Reflect on what this might imply in your life to begin the process.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Deep and powerful shifts continue to rumble close to home both within and without. Positively, these are leading you to promotions and new expressions of power. Yet, these may still be stirring your fears. Positively, stirred fears prompt bold action. Something is calling you to assume a new position and it begins with letting your star rise.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
A renovation process, whether literal or figurative continues. This cycle will continue all year. It is pushing you to reimagine what is possible. That is will likely be accompanied by very noticeable changes on relationship fronts is the fine print. This is probably already very evident, even if it is in the earlier stages. Positively, this is manifesting as a new love interest.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
A new round of exploring your higher mind is underway. This can be described as accessing your intuition. Logic likely plays a big role in your life, but intuition refers to your personal truth. It is guiding you to explore new territory. Investments are required to do so and these may come in the form of administration fees or down payments.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Deciphering who you are and what constitutes your priorities at this stage of your life journey continues. It may seem strange that you thought you knew yourself and what you deemed important and perhaps you did, once upon a time. At worst, you feel a bit intimidated but, at best you feel determined to rediscover yourself.
Something new is emerging in your life. This process has been underway for some time, but as if suddenly the sprouts and shoots are coming up fast. The process can be described as creative and includes acquiring new knowledge and skills. Reaching out to others is indicated and these are people who you recognize to be accomplished, which is your goal as well.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
The time has come to step into the limelight. The recent New Moon activated your career and public life so this will be a strong theme over the coming few weeks. It is important that you focus to overcome any fears blocking the process of manifesting your creative expressions. If ever there was a time to act more and think less, it is now, but weaving both is ideal.
