Week of June 4-10, 2014
This Week: The mischief-maker Mercury Retrograde arrives June 7 and departs July 2. Remember to be cautious during travel, and to check and double-check messages. Mercury haywire tends to complicate communication and travel. Some of you may feel it earlier than others, so allow plenty of time to get from point A to point B. However, we do have a saucy full moon arriving June 13 in fun-loving Sagittarius to break up some of the monotony. Meanwhile, Venus has moved in to Taurus through June 22. This can be a very sensual time for some, opening doors for creative works and beauty. For others, it will just pack the pounds on, so watch your dining habits and overindulgent behaviors.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Be cautious of theft or loss during this time, especially surrounding vehicles. Before any of you go into a panic, this may be revolving around another person’s belongings as well. Sometimes we are put in the right place at the right time to stop a disturbing action. Keep your eyes and ears open, because you may be witness to suspicious activity. You don’t have to play superhero; just contact the authorities. Good news arrives regarding children and family during this time. Enjoy!
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You may be missing a departed loved one early on this week and can’t figure out from where this is all coming. Dreams and messages from the other side will play a significant role in this process. Remember, your guardians are here to help you, not to hinder your path in life. Listen closely to the messages they are sending you, and follow their direction. They won’t steer you wrong.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — A flurry of activity arrives within your career sector, making this an action-packed time. Plenty of praise and recognition will be available for your efforts, as well as the opportunity to expand upon your social network. Family obligations will not be as complicated as you might foresee them to be originally. Enjoy these moments in time as they arrive.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Self-employed or self-contracted financial opportunities arrive during this time, creating a major breakthrough. This shatters the monotony of the recent past and revitalizes your energy field for the better. Children and pets play a significant role, as they tug at your heartstrings midweek. The weekend provides the perfect time to mix business and pleasure.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Your final acceptance to the changes evolving around you begin to sink in during this time. Fighting these tooth-and-nail have done nothing but exhaust you, creating wear and tear on your physical as well as emotional health. If we choose the path of the least resistance, our life does, in fact, run much smoother. Make sure you’re not allowing a meddling family member to stir up your insecurities during this time. Remember, this is their old, worn-out record in life, not yours to recycle.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Good news arrives from a long-distance source in the weeks to come, putting your mind at ease. A complicated financial element will soon resolve itself, and a solution is at hand. If you pay attention, this has been in the making for quite some time now. Once all is said and done, you will be able to re-route your cash flow in a productive light. A gathering with old friends relieves some unwanted tension.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Things are beginning to quiet down regarding family situations, so with that said, allow this to settle in a bit before you go taking the hot poker to another nagging issue. You need this peace and quiet for your own emotional well-being as well as that of those surrounding you. Sometimes we grow so accustomed to turbulence that we can become uneasy when the ship is sailing in smooth seas. Give yourself a much-deserved break from it all.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — It’s time to start aligning your strategy and set some action in motion now. You can’t stand the conflict, and your opponent knows that. However, you need to protect yourself by setting some boundaries with an overbearing individual. You will be pleasantly surprised with the outcome once you take the initial steps. This will improve the quality of your life immensely.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Legal documents, paperwork and insurance activity should be addressed during this time. Even though this can be a bit of a long, drawn-out process, it’s worth it in the long haul, making your life run much smoother. You will get the green light regarding assistance with a family member or loved one in the near future. Then, it will be time to kick back and relax with those of like mind.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Romantic elements may become complicated, as another begins to renege on a promise made in the heat of the moment. When people feel threatened of loss, they can have a knee-jerk reaction and long for something without clearly looking at the big picture. Once all is set in motion and the threat is gone, the pattern returns. Move through this with dignity, whatever the outcome may be. Life is like school — we are learning things in the process.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Travel plans or visitors may be arriving, putting a spring in your step during this time. A change of scenery does you a world of good, so make that a priority soon. Friends from the past align, taking you down memory lane. Watching the growth and development of another can be so enlightening, it’s almost contagious.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Be cautious that your own insecurities are not bleeding onto the clothes of others during this time. Time has passed, and no one is really holding on to the old, worn-out emotions that you might think. In fact, you may find this time frame allows the opportunity to heal old wounds and move forward with some newfound knowledge, clarity and balance. In other words, let go of your assumptions regarding what you’re assuming those around you feel about you. Then, start with a clean slate. You won’t regret it.
