My Stars for June-July 2017

Gemini sign

Gemini (May 21-June 21): The Summer Solstice belongs to you this year, as this is when the Moon passes into your sign. Mercury and Jupiter are supportive to you, and make this an ideal time to start a new venture to take the plunge and make big changes that have heretofore seemed scary.


Cancer (June 22-July 22): The June New Moon in Cancer combines with the Sun moving into your sign to provide an environment ripe for change (similar to that of Gemini). You, however, need to establish deeper roots and wider connections than that lot. Tend to your garden, and it will tend to you.


Leo (July 23-Aug 22): After a false start, June can easily bring success and recognition, if you apply yourself. Much as is the case for Gemini, Jupiter and mercury favor you with opportunities and the means to capitalize on them. The New Moon in July provokes an unexpected emotional attachment at work.


Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22): You won’t have to worry about chapped lips this summer; your Moon, being poorly angled to Saturn retrograde, has you pursing your lips so tightly that you’re in danger of swallowing them. You need to lighten up, or stay away from other people. Stereotypical movie nuns have more swag than you.


Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22): Your rosy glow is due to trying way too hard to be the leader of the pack. Nervous energy is yours in abundance, and leads to outrageous behavior in your quest to be noticed. You need to sit in the shade and take it down a notch.


Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21): Unlike your Libra brethren, you should actually sparkle this summer. Though cast in the role of good friend, rather than love interest, Mars, your ruling planet and Neptune compel you to be your creative best. Others look to you for ideas, and you have the best ones.


Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21): Jupiter goes direct on your watch; as your ruling planet, this ought to gain you greater respect, or even admiration. It’s unfortunate then that your Moon squaring Neptune weighs you down. Try to be less concerned about potential pitfalls in every situation, and enjoy yourself more.


Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19): Saturn has you boxed in, and your Moon squaring Mars allows you less oomph than is really your due. While not depending on the kindness of strangers, Blanche, you’ll find this season goes easier if you engage the assistance of others.


Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18): This cycle compels you to spend beyond your means as a way to compensate for some lack you feel but cannot pinpoint. Yes, it’s unlike you, but the barriers set up for others by Saturn, your ruling planet, you feel don’t apply to you, but they do.


Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20): Neptune going retrograde mid-June combines with Mars being well situated for your sign to create a situation where you’re raring to go, but can’t settle on a destination. You remind us of the old cartoon of Mr. Coffee nerves, stressed and blocked.


Aries (Mar21-Apr20): In an unanticipated turn of events, you are confounded, stymied, hindered. The Moon when in Aries is impeded by almost all the other planets, falling into unfavorable angles. It’s best for you to tolerate being sidelined right now, rather than getting injured.


Taurus (Apr 21-May20): There’s fairly clear sailing for you in June. You can see to the horizon, and new opportunities abound. Saturn sends up a few obstacles mid-July, but in general, the forecast is bright and sunny for you.
