Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Early this month, an insight involving your freedom and independence may strike you. For most of June, energy fills you which you could strategically direct towards your home and/or family. Set your sights on what needs to done. For some of you, this could involve a change, your finances or something deeply emotive to you. Even if there’s nothing regarding home or family that needs your attention, this is a good time to think about your roots and foundations of life – is it strong enough to support your aims for the next 12 months or so?
Taurus (Apr 21 – May 21)
Last month may have felt transitory in nature and for some it might involve a loss of some sort. I’m very sorry if that is the case. An unexpected insight from the reservoir of your subsconscious might occur to you in the first few days of June. Continue with any spiritual practice and/or solitary activities for the first week or so as you transition to your personal freedom from the second week onwards. You can finally breathe better and act on your desires. Your concerns with your possessions and personal finances shift to your immediate daily environment as the month goes by. Share your thoughts with others so that they can point you to the right direction wherever that may be.
Gemini (May 22 – Jun 21)
There are three states of water: liquid water, solid ice and gaseous water vapour. Likewise in astrology, energy can exist in three states: cardinal (starting new things), fixed (sticking at things) or mutable (adapting things). For the first half of June, have a go at being cardinal – be a pioneer and act to bring those ideas in your cerebrum to life. For the remainder of the month, consider applying the “fixed” energy – focus on a select few ideas, consolidate them and bring structure to them to give them further form. Let discipline, patience and effort be your friend during this time.
Cancer (Jun 22 to Jul 22)
My dear Cancer, this is a month of activity for you. Step up and out and be seen by everyone. Illuminate and nurture your personal finances and your values – these may provide the security that you seek. Show the public, the professional world your courageous self even if you have to clan yourself with amour. Feel the fear and insecurities and do it anyway. Be proud and confident of yourself. Let your intuition and imaginative mind flow through. Allow those insights from your subconscious to assist you in your daily interactions. A new self and path awaits you from the fourth week of June. That is, if you allow yourself to.
Leo (Jul 23 to Aug 23)
Imagine a wintry day or a cloudy day for those of you who live in the tropics. The Sun is still shining but the light is diffused by the clouds, fog or snow. Life isn’t the clearest nor the brightest during such times. But as you know, such weather conditions are transitory and temporary. Before long, the Sun shines brightly again. But wait patiently must the Sun. There’s a time for everything. A time to shine and a time to rest and perhaps do some preparatory work in the background. What work you say? Perhaps work that tease out the parts of the Sun that doesn’t cause it to shine brilliantly.
Virgo (Aug 24 to Sep 22)
What is the practical connection between your friends and social groups, and your professional goals? This might be obvious to you given your fine discrimination. But think alliances and supporters or even the infamous old boys network. Your membership in groups and/or your mates furthers and supports your ambition. It’s handy to have others, besides your partner and family, to root for you during any dreary times and to celebrate your successes too. That if, if you want them to. Early on in the fourth week is the time to embark on something new – joining a group, making a friend or to make a head start on your aspirations.
Libra (Sep 23 to Oct 23)
Think of a butterfly emerging from a chrysalis. You can be like the butterfly too. The metamorphosis process usually requires every ounce of your energy and you may have to look deep within yourself to penetrate to the core of your being. It may not necessarily be comfortable but look at the end result – you emerge your true self and look at your pretty wings! Almost inevitably, your long term aspirations and your philosophy of life are involved in the transmutation process. This may have a bearing on your public self – your social status, your profession, basically how the world sees you. If you are looking for a clean slate to start with, early on the fourth week is your chance to do so.
Scorpio (Oct 24 to Nov 22)
It takes some time for the somewhat intensive or even transformative May to cool down. There might be the lingering effects of May for the first two weeks or so. Something related to your personal finances or values culminates during the early part of the second week of June. Otherwise, it’s time to set your sights afar and cast them wide, including your long term goals. Look at your beliefs and philosophy perhaps involving your health and daily work routine. See how they have worked for you so far and whether they need any revision. For some, use this time to expand the boundaries of your mind and experiences. Go for an exotic holiday, a free sketching class in Chester Beatty Library in Dublin, Ireland, or have a chat from a different background to you.
Sagittarius (Nov 23 to Dec 21)
The second half of June could be a time of illuminating the deep emotional recesses within you, including any buried resentments or tensions, perhaps by communicating them. For those in a committed partnership, it could also be a time to penetrate the depths of a relationship and consider any joint resources involved. Notice that I said “committed partnership”. My personal philosophy of relationships, which you are absolutely free to disregard, is that it might be best to emotionally and financially bond with a person who is committed to you. Otherwise, when the person relinquishes at any time, he/she takes away part of you. Ouch.
If you want to go back to the drawing board regarding any of what is written above, early on in the fourth week may be a good time to do so.
Capricorn (Dec 22 to Jan 20)
Most of you have been feeling expansive or optimistic about your profession or your social status for at least a few months already. To continue to position you in the best light, it’s best to look at your health and your daily routine to see if it can be made more efficient and productive to serve your needs during the first two weeks of June. Start by going for a health check-up if you haven’t done so in a long time. Make a log of your daily routine for some days to see if any part of it can be fine-tuned. For the reminder of June, tease out any trouble spots in your life and/or business partnerships with direct and constructive communication. And also remember to say “I love you” or express your appreciation to the significant people in your life.
Aquarius (Jan 21 to Feb 18)
Communicate assertively and directly at work or in public as part of your daily life. Considering investing your energies into mind-body practices, e.g. meditation, yoga, tai chi, perhaps in group settings. Most physical exercises isolate the mental and physical aspects which may not make the best use of your time. You have been working towards your hopes and wishes since many months ago. Early on in the second week of June, your past efforts come to fruition. It’s not the end yet. Keep going. The grand finale is yet to be.
Pisces (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
Early on in the second week, your accumulated efforts towards your profession culminate and bear fruit. The first two weeks may be directed towards home and/or family matters. For the fortunate Pisces whose parent(s) are still alive, rekindle your relationship with them if necessary, reminisce about their/your past and/or even persuade them to make arrangements for the eventualities of life if they haven’t done so while they are still of sound mind. There’s no better time than the second half of the month to be yourself: with confidence, boldness and expressiveness especially when it comes to your favourite activities, sex and children.
