Your Horoscope: Week of June 2-8, 2010
This Week: Neptune went retrograde May 31 and will continue this course through Nov. 7. Neptune, the planet of hidden influences in retrograde, allows the veil of denial regarding unhealthy emotional aspects to be removed. We begin to see things as they really are, instead of how we want them to be. For some of you, the reality of all of this could be quite overwhelming; for others, enlightening. Those who are prone to be sensitive may feel an emotional overload. Try to use this planetary influence to your advantage.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Try not to rehash an emotional issue that arrived last week. It was time to clear the air, and you must trust the universe utilized you as a tool to help another see something accurately. Let it sit now for a bit; taking a crowbar back at this aspect will only make matters worse. June 6, Jupiter will enter your sign, providing a much brighter outlook. This will be a relief, considering you are coming off a very difficult journey.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—Romantic elements may be put to the test early this week. Take into consideration all of the aspects and observe outside influences. By week’s end, you have the ability to put everything back into place. Until then, think before you speak. You do not want to put yourself in a position of having to backtrack all of your thoughts and feelings.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—A lucky break arrives this week in the form of a financial element. Perhaps a client or family member comes into a windfall. They may be more than willing to share their good fortune with you. If by week’s end you see no evidence of this, be patient—this aspect is on the way shortly. You will reap the benefits, as well as have the opportunity to celebrate the good fortune of another.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—A large-ticket item or a major sale is about to take place. You can receive the blessings to which you are entitled. You have put in a tremendous amount of hard work over the last few months, and now is the time for you to shine. The payoff is sweet, and it’s all yours—remove negative influences from your playing field.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—If you feel as though you have been on a dull or mundane wavelength emotionally, expect the unexpected. People will be crawling out of the woodwork to connect with you. Try not to become overwhelmed. Instead, step up to the plate and accept every single expression of love and validation. Who cares where it’s coming from? It’s yours for the taking.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—It would be best if you did not push yourself at another whom you may have offended in the past. If you choose to continue to drive your point home, there may be legal ramifications as a result of your actions. If you have put yourself in a lonely box, perhaps it would be wise to rediscover how and why you ended up there. It can’t be everyone else’s fault all the time.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—You are enjoying the young or the young at heart. You have the ability to wrap your emotions around those who need guidance and encouragement. Try not to recreate an unusual exchange of energy from last week with another. If you push into that space, you may get your hand bitten off.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Make time for friends and family this week. Your schedule has been a bit of a pain in the rear end. However, you’re not gaining any more ground by spinning in a circle with the mundane tasks that are always a part of your scene. Take a break, invite loved ones around you to exchange energy, break bread and catch up. You will have no regrets.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Expansions with career and acceptance of your gifts will become apparent. New faces and new elements will ignite your creative side and line your pocketbook with the best possible windfalls. To be paid a king’s ransom for something you love to do is everyone’s wish and everyone’s entitlement. It’s your turn to shine.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—You are uneasy with the behavior of a family member or co-worker this week. Even though you continue to set a boundary, your subconscious continues to eat at you. You may need a second opinion on this emotional issue. A fresh perspective from a knowledgeable source will definitely bring you balance. Take time out for yourself this week as well.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Be cautious during travel. You may also want to make sure your cell phone is on in case you need to help another who has experienced a travel setback or catastrophe. You may need to be the hero this week, but in the long run, this offers you emotional satisfaction. Romance begins to heat up. You’re on the right path by month’s end.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Long-distance communication or travel may be on your agenda. This may come as an unexpected surprise or a shocking emergency. In either case, you will need to follow through and pick up the pieces for those who are too physically exhausted to go on any farther. In the end, you will find you have learned a lot from this endeavor. This is a memory you can take with you to eternity.
