Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
As a Gemini you are unlikely to be a natural loner. Most Geminis depend on the company of associates and friends. As essayist Anais Nin once said, "Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born." This is your month to assess your friendships, spend time with those who boost your hopes, dreams and wishes and perhaps cut ties with those who don’t. As you know friendships bring support and joy and sometimes strife. This is your month to understand friendship better, and be a great confidante to others and perhaps make some new friends. As a result groups, social clubs and gatherings feature more prominently than usual. You may also find yourself acting as the mediator or go-between in your social circle.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
Have you heard of the saying “finding your true north”? It means finding and staying on course so that you are living according to your authentic self. This is the month for Cancerians to do just that. If forces are not in line with your "true north," then you can become reactionary, a pleaser, or an appeaser. It is time to ensure that you are responding rather than reacting. This is particularly true when it comes to your chosen profession. Whether you are a humble servant of society or hold a presidential style role, you need to be living according to your own values. In many cases a Cancerian’s best compass is intuition. Strong emotions can lead you off course but your intuition, the sixth sense that underlies your feelings is strong this month. You can use it to move forward with your life goals.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)

The idea is to try something different, to have an adventure whether big or small. This way you are able to see your own life from a different viewpoint. It may also be time for you to teach some skills that you have gained in your profession or life experiences. If you don’t feel qualified to teach then you may explore a few topics with a view to study. Growth is the theme.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
It is time to examine how you invest your time and money. This is not so much how you earn your income but rather what you do with it once it is in your bank account. Are you a good saver? Do you spend more than you earn? Do you invest wisely? Something or someone has sparked a change in your shared resources. This could be a boost, a gift or a dividend. Alternatively circumstances could strain your resources. Whether through a boost or a decrease in your savings your personal spending habits alter and you look for ways in increase your income.

Fortunately Virgos are usually frugal and so you are well accustomed to living within your means.

If you are in a committed relationship then your partnership is under the microscope. Perhaps circumstances in your partner’s life demand some attention.

The most creative moments can sometimes strike a chord during moments of play. This is your month to take some time out of your regular routine and have some fun.

This can be an enjoyable process if you allow your family to provide you with some lighter moments. If you are domestic goat then you are likely to enjoy this extra emphasis on home-based matters.

Have you surrounded yourself with supportive and positive people? Do you practice healthy habits?
