Sun Signs—June 2017

With the two upbeat planets in a happy, healthy place this month, moving forward and feeling good—especially around love, relationships (and yes, weddings)—really is in the stars. If you can work around Mars, the planet of get-up-and-go in Cancer, the sign of just-want-to-stay home, June may turn out be one of the best months of the year.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your crackling wit and crackerjack intelligence is front and center this month. Just ignore the surface fuss because the motherload that feeds both your creativity and love life is coming from a much deeper place. Freedive into your unconscious and come out with the gold. Then you’ll be able to turn your creative ideas into income and more long-term security.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) As soon as your remodel gets back on track, head off to the spa with your core council for a soak. Fill up your reserves as you tap into the communal wisdom. It’s okay to let your vulnerability hangout; you’re realizing that emotional intelligence is your true gift and not a weakness. 

LEO (July 23-Aug 22)  Go tell it on the mountain, Leo, or simply from your front porch. You’ve got the best stories and your neighbors will be all ears hearing about some sweet career success. By month’s end, your attention turns inward, where seeking new ways to prove yourself may be more gratifying than the sound of applause. 

VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 22)  You’re synthesizing everything you’ve learned and you’re ready to broadcast it. Earning money comes effortlessly; all you have to do is speak your mind. People are starting to listen; and your practical intelligence is starting to pay off. By month’s end you’re keen to nurture your friendships. As you connect with kindred spirits, you hone future hopes and dreams.

LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22)  You’re being pulled in so many directions and have so many ideas, it’s hard to keep them straight. All the work and relationship building you’ve been doing the last few months is ready to move forward. Go ahead, take it to the next level. If you have any nagging health concerns, now is the time to be proactive. 

SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21)  Your ability to delve the depths of your unconscious lubricates the clockwork of your third eye, bringing some ease to your most personal (aka complicated) relationships. Carrying on multiple (as in, dimensional) conversations and communing with the unseen shines a light on shared resources and opens up the possibility for tax refunds or other settlements.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21)  With so much forward motion in your friendship and relationship houses you’re making connections and feeling optimistic about the future. You’re also easing into your body more than ever and beginning to appreciate muscle joy. Toward the end of the month, that property investment you’ve been on the fence about could be a good idea, easing anxiety about your security. 

CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19) With so much investment in your career finally coming to fruition, what’s a hard-working Sea Goat to do? Maybe it’s time to have a little fun. This is a good time to start practicing the Japanese art of Shinrin (forest-bathing), essentially a rejuvenating walk in the woods. Or signing up for that pottery class you’ve been wanting to take. Toward the end of the month, turn towards nurturing your intimate relationship and asking for what you want from it. 

AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) That tour of the decorator showcase house has you thinking about how you might infuse more color into your home. It may have to wait as you are antsy to be out and about in the world. Best to use your free miles before they expire. Traveling abroad makes home look better anyway. And now that things are moving forward again your attention turns to how you can take better care of yourself.

PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20)  You will get a lot of pleasure out of puttering in your garden this month, maybe putting in some raised beds while chatting with friendly neighbors. The relationships you’ve forged begin to bear fruit. All this planting turns to nurturing creative projects or perhaps a new romance. Either way, you’re in the flow again.

ARIES (Mar 21-April 19) Your intimate relationships are back on track, and you’re ready to take things to the next level. If you’re looking for a partner, there’s no better time to find one. Things look good for a raise, too. If you’re not employed and want to be, it’s a great time to apply for a new job. Too much of a good thing is the only downside. You may have to be discerning. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Oh, you sexy bull, you’re looking and feeling good. Go ahead and ask your boss to bump up your salary; luck is on your side. By the time the bonus is in the bank, you have the energy to get a vegetable garden growing. Take an active role in improving your health; partnering with the right practitioner can help you root out any hidden problems.
