Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
It is time to be realistic about recent events, and move forward in a way that consolidates your achievements. Practicalities are the flavour of the month. You may still be riding the crest of a wave that began months ago, but the time has come to make sure that your foundations are firmly in place. Listen to a significant adviser, partner or authority figure. In particular it is time to assess your personal finances. Is your budget realistic? Can you rely on your current income? Do you need to make changes? Adjustments made now will save heartache later.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Seeds planted now will germinate and produce tangible rewards later in the year. The next few months are ideal for building projects, or working towards any practical goal. Just make sure you are sowing seeds in rich new fertile ground. Taureans have a tendency to hold on to things from the past – childhood comforts, memories, possessions, grudges and even people. Now you have the opportunity to reflect on all that holds value in your life. What, and who, really supports your current hopes, dreams and wishes? Who is offering true value in your life? It is time to stare current day opportunities in the face and let go. A stubborn refusal to face the truth does not serve you well. Trying to please everyone will not work either. The planets are aligned in Taurus this month giving you the courage to add true value to your life. Move forward with integrity and you will be amazed at the resulting satisfaction.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
Have you heard of the term “The Fickle Finger of Fate” (also known as ”El Dedo del destino”)? There was a comedy film of this name in the 1960s. Then comedic team Rowan and Martin made the term even more prominent with their “Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award” in their television series “Laugh-In”. The fickle finger of fate points out in a humorous fashion that something unpredictable may occur in the future. Well be prepared for your own special version of a date with destiny. A Solar Eclipse in your Zodiac Sign kicks off June signalling that it is time to let go of something, or someone, from the past and focus on crafting your own special destiny. Proceed with purpose and expect your date to be linked in some manner to a Sagittarian person or the same single-minded that the Archers can apply to a specific goal. Take one sure arrow and fire it and be ready to hit a bulls-eye!
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
Right now it is the ideal time for you to return to your tasks at home. You have been very busy in recent times, creating an impression and pursuing your own goals. Now you can focus on keeping the home fires burning. Home maintenance and renovation projects are on the agenda. At the same time you can focus on private matters and personal projects. Your loved ones may need, or appreciate a little extra tender loving care right now. You need to spend a little time nurturing your own personal needs as well. A massage, a retreat, a good book or dvd or all of the previous are of benefit right now.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Whether the sun is shining or not, this is your moment to shine. The eyes of important people in society are focussed on you, noticing your achievements and efforts. You have worked hard to get to this point, and made some personal sacrifices along the way. Therefore you need to make the most of the professional rewards that come your way. Once you have had your moment in the sun also take a little time out to appreciate your achievements. Rumbling health problems need attention. If you have pushed too hard in the recent past then a check-up with a health professional, a therapeutic massage, or some soul-searching alone time could help purge a few niggling problems.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
You may long to escape your everyday life this June. It is not like the ever-practical Virgo to dream of greener pastures, but you are keen to transcend the minutiae of life and gain a broader perspective, perhaps through travel or study. It is possible that the impetus for this change of heart is coming from a significant other, but it is also likely that you need to simply let go of niggling little problems and gain a broader perspective of one or more aspects of your life. This can be a joyful time when you delight in the opportunities to broaden your mind, and your horizons. Your new insights may also benefit your professional life.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
You are extra sensitive to seasonal changes during the next few months. This is because you are sensing the changes that are occurring in your own life. Right now you are likely to feel that you are ready for some change, but you still have some restrictions or obstacles. Take your time. The seasons unfold in their own time. So will your own life’s journey. This June it is time to let go of what you can, consolidate and work with your strengths and exercise patience. As American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr says: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
You are in charge of your own life – correct? The answer is of course, “yes” but the next few months see your partner, or the pursuit of a significant relationship, take centre stage. It is time to focus on your relationship goals. If you are single then your relationship “antennae” could be tuned into looking for love. This is not the desperate and dateless sort of “tuning in” but rather the “am I the type of person who I would want a relationship with?” scenario. This is your opportunity to be your own best friend, while also keeping a look-out for someone passing your way. If you are already in a committed relationship then it is time to pay attention to your partner. Relationships need constant tending, somewhat like a garden or housework. If matters are allowed to build up without regular attendance then the resulting consequences are not pretty. Now it is time to “spring clean” your relationships – let go of the past and move towards a more realistic and satisfying future. Watch out for a significant Taurean.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
While work and finances play a role this June, you marital status – single or married – has a date with destiny. You may feel the need to withdraw from general society and focus on daily life so that your personal finances significantly improve, but at the same time you are also pondering partnership – whether business or personal. Eclipses this month indicate that you need to let go of something on an individual level in order to create something for the greater good of a group, or perhaps for your own marital happiness. This may be linked with a Gemini person, or communications and contracts. You may initially have to say goodbye or separate from something or someone in order to take part in a joint enterprise. You may feel some frustration or anxiety connected with the changes, so listen to your heart and know that compromise is required.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Playfulness is not usually a quality assigned to the sturdy Goats of the Zodiac, but this is something highlighted in your stars this June. So take some time to have fun or create something for the sheer pleasure of it. You also need to take a look at your calendar and make sure that you are creating space for rest and recreation. Schedule a health check, a massage or some such rejuvenating activity. This will help get the creative fires burning.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Home comforts are your focus this June. You are likely to formulate plans for improving your home environment. This could involve maintenance, renovating, re-decorating, or perhaps even planning a move. Generally speaking this is a creative time, one that may even spark an interest in a new hobby. Children, your own or other people’s, may also gather around you. Take a little time to enjoy the simple pleasures of life.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Now is the time to surround yourself with positive and like-minded family and friends. You are receptive enough at the best of times. Now your sensitivity is heightened and your life can be enhanced by communicating with upbeat folk. You may also benefit from talking with like-minded friends, or writing down some of your thoughts. If you have always dreamed of becoming an artist, taking up photography or escaping in nature, then this is your month to get the ball rolling. If you have the time then you could start a course or promote your artistic talents. If your diary is already full, don’t stress – just sit back and listen to music, watch a nature DVD or dabble in a little fantasy.
