ALL SIGNS: The first day of summer is fast approaching with the Sun’s arrival in Cancer on the 21st. Where has the time gone? No doubt this first half of 2014 has been one to remember. As we embark on the next six months use the Mercury retrograde to deal with any glaring issues that need tending. If there has been anything gained from the wild planetary influences thus far it is that taking time to nurture all that has supported you through the ups and downs (a person/s, talent or skill set) should strongly be considered as your main priority.
GEMINI WEEKLY FORECAST
Mercury re-visits your sign on the 17th putting you in the spotlight once again. If there was a lull in activity for the last few weeks or you were feeling a little uneasy about the going’s on in your life this week will change all of that. Not only is Mercury allowing you a little mental space a quite possibly the opportunity for a ‘do over’ of a first impression so to speak Venus will be making sure that you are simply unforgettable. The self image you project is becoming clearer and clearer to you and with it a better sense of what you want starts to emerge in vibrant detail. In particular if you have a career in the arts, music, spirituality or any position that requires a creative mind and compassionate spirit you will be shining brighter than ever. As the Sun moves into Cancer you can also expect great news about money. It may not be the lump sum from a lottery win you were hoping for but a steady increase in cash flow is very likely. At very least it is in the works and may present itself in early July. Remember benefic Jupiter has been in one of your financial houses for almost a full year and preparing to move on next month. A monetary increase will also come with a lot more to do. Do your best to stay organized and on top of the details these next few weeks so that you can go off an running without a hitch later on.
GEMINI JUNE Overview:
June will be a much slower month than what you have been used to over the past little while. As Mercury, your ruling planet, retrogrades and Venus hides out in your twelfth house you really would do well to dial it back and take it easy. Delays and miscommunications are likely to make sure that you get the message. After the Summer Solstice you will begin to feel refreshed and like new again despite the fact that Mercury will still be moving at a snails pace. The New Moon and Venus’ entry into your sign at the end of the month also lights up your life with good news and harmonious vibes regarding finances. Keep in mind it is not the best month to initiate any new projects/endeavors or ask for a raise; rather tie up loose ends and neaten up in general. July is looking like a fantastic month for you where both Venus and Jupiter (the luckiest planets of all) are full of well-wishing sentiments. Clear the decks now to ensure you can make the most of next months glorious planetary influences.
ALL SIGNS: Gather your courage as Mars Squares Pluto on 14th, just a day after the Full Moon in the optimistic sign of Sagittarius. A high minded approach can steer you clear of impulsive actions that really only serve to stir up unnecessary drama.
GEMINI WEEKLY FORECAST
Dreamy Neptune is in retrograde as of the 9th and hovering in your house of career, rewards and recognition. The Mercury retrograde, in addition, makes this the perfect moment to gather your bearings and take a good look at where you are in terms of how you others see you and how you see yourself. You have put a great deal of work into yourself and in service to others yet, there is something rigid about your approach that you may not be able to put your finger on. Upon closer inspection you may find that you are pushing away what you want in favour of following the rules (either how you think it should be or less likely following the de facto parameters set by others). As mentioned, perhaps too many times, in your previous forecasts over the past while, Venus is touring a hidden par to your chart making it difficult to come to figure out exactly what you want. Therefore, you never quite know what to expect. This realization may have you huffing and puffing when Warrior Mars squares transformative Pluto on the 14th. You can have your way and make the necessary change — but are you sure (down to every detail) you know what that is? Chill – if you are not confident yet you will be after Venus graces your first house next week and even more so after your planetary ruler, Mercury, corrects its course in early July.
FULL MOON in SAGITTARIUS June 13th: This Full Moon brightens and intensifies a particular relationship. Emotions are high and idealisms could get the better of you causing an unnecessary scene. Keep an open mind and try to resist blocking off any ideas from another simply because they do not match your higher purposes — to each his own. In fact, allowing new ideas to percolate can help refine and even re-define your aims and understandings.
