Your Horoscope: Week of June 16-22, 2010
This Week: Venus moves into Leo for a brief stay until July 11. This will definitely add some spice into the mix of our love lives, as well as some adventure and lighthearted humor. Take advantage of this element this week. An early alert is needed for the June 26 lunar eclipse in Capricorn. This will be a monster of an eclipse, rattling the cages of many to the core. Choose your activities for this time frame wisely, avoiding crowds or highly-agitated people. This would not be a time frame to confront those with an unstable mind. Quiet gatherings at home with loved ones would be the best idea. After that, we can go back to enjoying Venus’ quick step with Leo. Stay safe, and enjoy.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—If you feel as though you’ve been in a slump, try not to beat yourself up too much about it. You’ve needed some peace and quiet, and that has been a difficult aspect to obtain until now. Try not to perceive yourself as “lazy.” Although your mind is spinning, you need this time out. With a little break in the monotony, you will return to your responsibilities refreshed and ready to go.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—Health issues of loved ones around you have you in emotional turmoil again this week. Trust that the universe will protect these individuals and lead them to a peaceful, healthy existence. Everything happens for a reason. This will allow other gifts and talents to emerge as a result of this temporary setback. Meanwhile, you need to make sure you are taking care of yourself as well. Step back enough to honor your own health and well-being.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—An unusual phone call or letter will arrive, providing crystal clarity. You will be able to see another has actually been trying to sabotage your happy home or relationship sector. Don’t overreact, just file this away. You will know how to respond with future events to come—with your eyes wide open.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Opportunity knocks from a mysterious source this week. Try not to overanalyze the motives or the long-term effects of this “gift”—just allow it to flow. Travel is absolutely off-the-charts fabulous this week. You will find out some very important information about yourself—a turning point in your life.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Although you have felt the overwhelming pressure from outside influences, you have also been able to see how much love and support the universe is providing. Count your blessings; you are going through a growth spurt. Wednesday brings some enlightening positive news from a loved one. Take time to celebrate.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Get off that busy, overwhelming schedule long enough to relax a bit with friends or family. Rome was not built in a day, and you have been pushing yourself way too hard recently. A new love interest will arrive for single Virgos shortly. Attached Virgos will feel the second honeymoon energy. Put your best foot forward. All eyes are on you.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—You’re faced with a decision to “let go” of something you may not be emotionally prepared for quite yet. You need to trust this will work out for its own best good, and this will allow you some time to work on your own personal goals. When outside chatter is the focus, it makes it easier not to do the work we need to with our own personal conflict. Weed out what is no longer working for you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Romance has taken a turn for the better. There has been a major shift, and it is evident there is plenty of room for growth with this situation. Finances improve with an unexpected gift and work offer. Midweek, a dark-haired female from your past may somehow try to get involved in your new space. Be gracious, but set a serious boundary upfront.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—A friend or loved one will offer an exciting adventure this week that you should not pass by. OK, yes, there is always work to be done. However, you’re ready for another break in the monotonous cycle of your overwhelming schedule. When you come back refreshed and rested, you can accomplish way more than if you had “kept your nose to the grindstone.”
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Good news arrives with a financial document or a legal matter. This may be the best time to celebrate your good fortune. Don’t see the glass as half empty, see it as half full. The negative chatter or fears of another could be weighing you down. It’s time to call them on the carpet about their “thought process.” Open their eyes as to what they are doing to themselves. Then, let it be. Don’t drag it through the dirt.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Changes with home or work are very exciting this week. Trust that the powers that be will guide you in the right direction. Wednesday is a five-star day providing you with many opportunities to flourish. Take some time out this weekend to get together with friends and loved ones. You will have plenty of stories to share at week’s end.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Look over your paperwork and documents to the letter this week. Do not allow an oversight to cost you on a financial level. Avoiding the obvious responsibilities will catch up to you shortly. Who needs the added aggravation? Not you; you have bigger fish to fry and opportunities to develop.
