Your Horoscope: Week of June 23-29, 2010
This Week: I started my warnings early regarding the lunar eclipse June 26. So many planets are at war with one another, and this aspect will bring everything to a head. Even though we are in the middle of summer, it might be wise to look at this as a huge snowstorm coming. Gather your supplies and hunker down over the weekend, with those whom you hold near and dear to you at your side. Then, in the same token, make sure you don’t turn it into a weekend like Jack Nicholson in The Shining, where these turbulent aspects begin to turn on one another. Be gentle to one another, and keep plenty of healthy activities to distract you during this “snowstorm-like” weekend. The news will be filled with unusual events; some may be quite disturbing. The market can get a bit shaky, as well as the Earth itself during this time. Remember, all of these aspects will heal themselves in the long run. Just take care during this time frame.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—This lunar eclipse in Capricorn affects your 10th house of career. It appears everything will finally come to a head. You may leave an old work relationship behind, moving forward in a new direction. You may need to re-evaluate the way you handle your emotional ties. A little kindness goes a long way.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—This lunar eclipse focuses on courts of law and family matters. Reality hits home now, and you have a clear-cut vision after the fact. Mind your temper. You’re beginning to rekindle old relationships and romantic connections. People and places from the past make a powerful impact on your life next month. You’re very confident, and inspired to look your best.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Be cautious with your finances. You could have an unexpected expense. Check and double-check that your bills are paid as well. News regarding a loss of a female can also be an issue this week. Be gentle with your significant other. Take into consideration the workload he or she has been carrying, and try to make things a little bit easier for him or her. Pushing your significant other to accept additional responsibilities or an unwanted house guest may put you in the dog house.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—An unexpected expense may arrive this week, thanks to this lunar eclipse. Additionally, a relationship sector will be at the make-it-or-break-it point. Love and friendships are on your mind, and you may be second-guessing how another truly feels about you. As a result of this, your behavior around them could be sending mixed signals and causing more confusion. Try not to complicate this encounter too much. Keep it light and simple, and it’s in the bag from there.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Leos and Scorpios are about the only signs that will not be dramatically affected by this eclipse. Travel is highlighted now. Good news arrives regarding finances, and you feel relieved to know somebody has got your back in the near future. Now, you can begin to accomplish your own goals without all the pressure. An unconventional idea regarding a career move is the perfect fit for you. Move forward with this with confidence—it’s brilliant!
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—The writing is on the wall, and this is a make-it-or-break-it turning point in your long-term relationship sector. You may even feel relieved with the outcome. People and places from the past provide you with emotional support and humor this week. You have felt as though your whole life is at a deadlock. This week allows an opportunity to break up the monotony. Fresh faces and ideas leave you feeling inspired. Enjoy.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—This monster eclipse affects your fourth house of home and family. Be cautious of theft or misplacing valuable items. A loss of a female may be evident as well. However, new business or cash flow begins to pour in. You can consider other options to expand your current environment. You may need to make changes with vehicles or housing. Now, you can get these projects moving without the stress. Once all is said and done, you will feel relieved with the outcome. Take time out to get together with friends and family. You won’t regret it.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Travel is accentuated, and is indeed just what the doctor ordered to clear your head and charge your batteries. When you come back all refreshed and renewed, an offer of change within your work environment arrives. Although a past situation may have you a little bit unsure of yourself, you need to understand that was not the right fit for you anyway. This new opportunity will give you the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Your love relationship is about to improve as well.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Watch your step this week with co-workers or those in a position of authority. This lunar eclipse in Capricorn can affect your second house of financial gain. Try not to make an expensive purchase until the air clears after this weekend (June 26). Even if a change is evident, expect this to turn out for the best in the long run. Begin to make your plans for a getaway—you’re going to need it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—The past has seemed to be haunting you all over again within the last month. Family matters may have had you at your wit’s end. Keep in mind, behind-the-scenes activity is working in your favor to improve the quality of your financial sector. However, this would not be the time to push or challenge someone into upgrading your status. Those opportunities will arrive down the road. In other words, don’t bite the hand that feeds you this week.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Hidden influences are revealed to you during this bold lunar eclipse. Take your time with this information, and come up with a plan to defuse it. Old friends, neighbors and co-workers are looking to hook up with you this week. Although you may have been in a bit of a funk recently, you will find expanding your social sector will improve your disposition tremendously. You will feel inspired to take on a new creative project as well. The outcome will be favorable!
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—A loss of a female may affect you during this lunar eclipse, or a challenging aspect may hit your house of friendships. Don’t push too hard. The health and welfare of those around you require your magic touch this week. Your sensitive nature will provide a boost to someone who has not been feeling the best. You can connect on a spiritual level with someone who is in need of your support. Your karmic points are racking up big time this week.
