STARDATE, JUNE 2018: Sun Signs

New Moon: Jun 13, 23 degrees Gemini, 12:43 pm PDT
Full Moon: Jun 27, 7 degrees Cancer (Sun); 7 degrees Capricorn (Moon), 9:53 pm PDT
Summer solstice: Sun enters Cancer, Jun 21, 3:47 am PDT
Mercury enters Cancer: Jun 12, 1:00 pm PDT
Venus enters Leo: Jun 13, 2:54 pm PDT
Mars stationary retrograde: Jun 26, 2:05 pm PDT, 9 degrees Aquarius
Neptune stationary retrograde: Jun 18, 4:27 pm PDT, 17 degrees Pisces

Gemini: Boredom is as depleting to you as kryptonite is to Superman, so avoid it and don’t curb your enthusiasm for the first three weeks of June! Tap into all that abundant solar energy illuminating your sign: Go forth and collect as many fascinating experiences and conversations as you possibly can. Send your mind on a marathon learning spree that should leave you wondering about some intriguing new questions. Around the 12th and 13th, your heart should start to direct that learning spree as least as much as your mind does. Journaling or creative writing then can provide both insights and pleasure. If your responsibilities have been fruitful and multiplied a bit too much and work has left you feeling overwhelmed for a few weeks, consider why. Hint: You may be confused about why, and it may take you a while to figure it out completely, so take your time. Don’t burn any bridges this month, carefully investigate any glamour-job offers, and protect your right to think for yourself. What sort of work inspires you the most? That’s where to aim.


Cancer: As if you’re a space traveler emerging from hibernation after a long galactic journey, you’ll feel more energy and alertness after the solstice on the 21st. During that induced sleep, you might have had a nightmare or two. If they were about interpersonal conflicts, take a deep breath and negotiate around the 26th-27th. Listen carefully to all opposing opinions. You may not agree, but try to operate with the attitude that the other person is just as ensouled and struggling as you are, regardless of what you think of his or her point of view. If you can work through your differences with respect, and perhaps with some gentle humor if appropriate, you may end up feeling proud about your growing ability to be diplomatic. Not only that, you could  also forge a bond with an invaluable “devil’s advocate” and sounding board for the future. As Gandhi once said, “The ally we must cultivate is the part of our enemy that knows the truth.”

Leo: Okay, here’s the skinny. The future? Think about where you want to be in five years, or ten, or fifteen, about who else wants to be there too, and how you can help one another. Communication? Your intuition’s strong this month, and so are your subjectivity and imagination, so make sure you’re working with the facts. Work? Be realistic, plan ahead, watch your back, and be yourself—nobody else can. Friends and lovers? “Good fences make good neighbors”; paradoxically, we need healthy boundaries to form healthy relationships, and sometimes those boundaries need maintenance. What’s the point of doing all that processing? Passion. It’s worth it. Nothing kills a bond faster than stifled anger. Where’s the joy this month? Creativity and personal time: at home, with family, soul-family, or both.

Virgo: A yellow light, not a stoplight, shines on your relating road this month. Proceed with caution. Strive to see your partners, consultants or clients as clearly as possible, and consider getting second opinions about them from grounded people whose perceptions you have reason to trust. At work, don’t let your boss or colleagues pressure or sweet-talk you into doing anything that feels contrary to your basic nature, sticks in your craw, or rubs you the wrong way. If you go on blind dates or otherwise meet some new people, make sure they bring integrity and depth to the table—in other words, they should get real or go home. Quiet time with a dear and silly friend, a creative retreat, or a rollicking good novel could all be restorative.

Libra: Love, Art, and Balance will always be your guiding stars, but guess what? A few comets are visiting Planet Libra, and they bear suggestions. First, have some fun with the most irreverent and dynamic person you know. If you stand your ground with him or her, you can learn a lot about how to be assertive and playful at the same time. Second, try questioning everything you believe this month, and learn something you didn’t know before. Third, weigh the time you give to your public, outer life (vocation or avocation, reputation, etc.) versus the time you devote to your private life (home, personal life, family, “down time”). Do the two areas need rebalancing? Finally, not all relating is one on one! Who are your natural tribe or tribes? You may have more than one. Hanging out with them will both charge your batteries and recalibrate your compass for the future.

Scorpio: You’re facing some stress, challenges, or anger in your personal life. Where? Most likely they’re in your home, your family, your passionate quest for self-knowledge, or all three areas. This month, your best strategy for dealing with these issues probably doesn’t come naturally to you. What is it? Striving for enough detachment and analytical objectivity, possibly about a new tie, to help you keep your cool and say only what you need to say to process an issue, no more and no less. After the 13th is a better time than before to speak your mind. Avoid exaggeration, sarcasm, self-righteousness, or any stinging, accurate but ultimately irrelevant insights. Keeping the matter as private as possible could be helpful and avoid ruffling some feathers, including yours, perhaps. You may not achieve resolution, but if you open a dialog, you’ll have passed a test with flying colors.

Sagittarius: Late May’s spotlight on relating continues. Words to heed from your significant other:
* “One or both of us needs a break here. Let’s just relax for the weekend and talk about it again after Monday.”
* “I don’t think you heard what I actually said.”
* “We need to look at your (my) family more realistically.”
Words to challenge:
* “You’ve got nothing to complain about.”
* “You don’t seem to have any feelings about this.”

Capricorn: Any approval, recognition, or intriguing new contacts coming your way during the past several months have probably felt wonderful, but don’t let your calendar become so full that it explodes. You’ll be working hard to maintain your progress for approximately two more years, so wise up and pace yourself: you aren’t a machine, and your energy isn’t an infinitely renewable resource. If your intimates ask to see more of you later in the month, agree and participate without resentment. You may be surprised at how restorative and pleasant some quality time with friends or lovers can be just now.

Aquarius: The focus shifts to your responsibilities, but following directions is seldom your strong suit. Think about this: Not all leaders are dictators; they can inspire, inform, train, mentor and respect others. Not all authority figures are ill-intentioned; sometimes they’re devoted to fostering the greater good for the greatest number of people as possible. And this month, you may find yourself one of ‘em, Boss. Stressful though that unaccustomed role may feel to you, don’t have an identity crisis. Stand your ground and start scheming instead. By mid-month, it’ll be easier to sweet-talk others. Whom can you encourage or charm into moving in a better direction? Where can you help instigate some welcome reforms? Humor and tolerant insight are your sword and shield here.

Pisces: Over the past several years, the ongoing subtext with you is a long but gradual opening to your deepest self, a softening, a growing awareness of the presence of the Infinite or the Mystery in our lives. You’re about halfway through a process of exploring your sensitivity, imagination and compassion without retreating into passivity or numbness. This month, I have two suggestions for you. One: don’t let this awakening unnerve you. You can do it, and no one else has to understand or approve. Two: have some fun! It’s not incompatible with soul-searching, which can be overdone. When have you laughed the hardest? What were you doing then? Never mind being sophisticated: What’s plastered the biggest and goofiest grins on your face? Your guardian angels want you to have another few servings of that and remember what it feels like.

Aries: I forget who said, “Action precedes motivation.” It’s a good motto for you this month, Aries. You’re good at staying busy, but that’s not what we’re talking about. Where do you want to go next in life? What path toward your future seems the most exciting; which road carries the most charge? Try these two things. One: feel your way through your goals; let your mind walk ahead of you down those paths. This isn’t just about thinking, however. Two: take some baby steps thataway. Get your toes wet, if not your feet. Take some chances. Think of it as experiential learning. Trying out the options that cross your mind, no matter how fleetingly, will help you decide which ones attract you the most.

Taurus: You’ve just embarked on a seven-year journey toward being more completely yourself, while remaining a pleasant, laid-back member of the human family. Accompanying you on the first leg of your trip is Jupiter in Scorpio, promoting a bit more analysis of yourself and others than is usual for you, to help you figure out where and perhaps why you haven’t been fully yourself. Psychological insight brought by Jupiter can be affirming, a tonic, encouraging; growth doesn’t always hurt. By the solstice, prepare to enjoy less self-questioning, more realizations, and the start of integrating them at an emotional level as well as an intellectual one. Stress at work may relate to your feeling either restricted, out of place, drained or overextended there. A warm private life with trusted people can alleviate some of that stress, but don’t hesitate to stand up for yourself and set boundaries if necessary. Your sanity’s worth it.

Taurus

You’ve just embarked on a seven-year journey toward being more completely yourself, while remaining a pleasant, laid-back member of the human family. 

Accompanying you on the first leg of your trip is Jupiter in Scorpio, promoting a bit more analysis of yourself and others than is usual for you, to help you figure out where and perhaps why you haven’t been fully yourself. 

Psychological insight brought by Jupiter can be affirming, a tonic, encouraging; growth doesn’t always hurt. 

By the solstice, prepare to enjoy less self-questioning, more realizations, and the start of integrating them at an emotional level as well as an intellectual one.

Stress at work may relate to your feeling either restricted, out of place, drained or overextended there.

A warm private life with trusted people can alleviate some of that stress, but don’t hesitate to stand up for yourself and set boundaries if necessary. 

Your sanity’s worth it.

It’s a good motto for you this month, Aries. 

You’re good at staying busy, but that’s not what we’re talking about. Where do you want to go next in life? 

What path toward your future seems the most exciting; which road carries the most charge? 

Try these two things. One: feel your way through your goals; let your mind walk ahead of you down those paths. 

This isn’t just about thinking, however. Two: take some baby steps that away. Get your toes wet, if not your feet. 

Take some chances. Think of it as experiential learning.
