This is the month we have been waiting for. June brings a glorious lunar eclipse plus a rare transit of Venus. It also brings yet another sharp encounter between Uranus and Pluto. These two planets have been squaring up to each other for a couple of years, like boxers trading insults before a fight. Every so often, they get into the ring, creating dramas in the world of global finance and politics. Yet the overall message from the sky is one of ‘softening and sweetening’. The main thing we’ll notice is how much more inspired and hopeful we feel.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Sometimes, we all push our luck a little. Life without adventure of some kind is really no life at all. What you are doing now may not be wise, but, at least, it is fun! Or, at least, it has the potential to bring you great enjoyment, as long as you don’t push yourself too far, too fast. June brings a glorious lunar eclipse and a rare, wonderful transit of Venus. These two events promise a month of discovery and delight. Prepare to learn more about yourself, your potential to be successful and your ability to deepen an essential relationship.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
There is nothing ordinary about a transit of Venus. You can’t expect your life to proceed as ‘normal’ under such an influence. It doesn’t necessarily follow, though, that some enormous drama is about to be enacted. A coming development is about to make a very big difference. But the development itself may prove surprisingly small. An exchange of information. The dawn of a new idea. A subtle but powerful realisation. Be open to the idea that a seed planted in your heart, could grow in time into a whole forest.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
This month’s rare transit of Venus takes place while the Sun is in your sign. Venus, obviously, is in your sign too! As if that weren’t portentous enough, we get a lunar eclipse in your opposite sign as well. This is deeply auspicious. It might be best interpreted as the sky pointing a giant finger straight at you, singling you out for special attention. Whatever the cosmos can do to help better your lot, deepen your understanding and improve your ability to enjoy life in June, it will do. All you have to do, is accept that help.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
Can’t you go a little faster? Can’t you try harder? Isn’t there more you can do? Have you no other tricks up your sleeve? I don’t mean to add to the pressure that you are already starting to experience, but I do need to highlight the way in which you are continually being made to feel as if nothing is good enough. It seems as though you are being weighed and found wanting, yet you have nothing to apologise for. You deserve appreciation not castigation. June’s rare transit of Venus will address that imbalance.
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Think of some of the tastes and flavours that you have gradually learned to like. At some point in your life, you stopped screwing up your nose in disgust, gave a dish a cautious nibble and said, ‘Actually, I like it.’ Then it earned a real place in your heart. Acquired tastes are always more rewarding, once we have acquired them. June is an historic and exciting month. It brings a rare transit of Venus and suggests you are about to develop an appreciation for a new experience that could change more than you think.
VIRGO (August 24 - September 23)
While Mars has been in your sign, you have been travelling at such a speed as to cause all passing scenery to become a blur. Finally, you are slowing down. You can see clearly. You have not reached your destination but you have reached a place to pause for reflection. This month's historic transit of Venus implies a sense of elevation and illumination. You are rising higher than you have been for some while. Others (rightly) are starting to look up to you and you will see many reasons to feel proud of yourself in June.
LIBRA (September 24 - October 23)
A thought-provoking conversation will soon cause you to think rather differently about an important matter. Venus traditionally rules your sign - and this month's rare transit of Venus, suggests a host of exciting opportunities in store for you. They have not just suddenly arrived, they have been there for some while waiting for you to recognise them. As you now begin to understand what could be possible, your heart should grow full of enthusiasm. Allow yourself to become motivated. You can set out on a journey to a whole new life in June.
SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22)
Little escapes your eagle eye. Somehow, you can instinctively see where the needle is hiding in the haystack. Every so often, though, you become like a deity who has descended to the mortal realm and is now choosing to function without the use of their godlike powers. Right now, you face a situation that sorely requires analysis and understanding. The transit of Venus invites you to draw on your hidden, higher self. You will soon see a way to clear up a mystery that seems to be baffling many people. Trust what inspires you.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21)
It is easy to forget how insecure most people are. Not only do we do things that others find hard to accept, we refuse to understand why anyone should object. Yet, when we are unreasonable, it is because deep down, we are afraid. June's lunar eclipse helps you understand something useful about your own deepest fears. And a rare transit of Venus speaks of your chance to understand a loved one's behaviour or the reason why someone is often difficult to deal with. Thus it brings hope and harmony.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20)
This month's rare transit of Venus, creates a climate in which candid exchanges can be safely conducted. But it is always very difficult to tell someone the truth if you feel that they are not going to enjoy hearing it, or if you suspect that your honesty could result in a punishment. To take advantage of this celestial opportunity, you must overcome your own sense of insecurity. You don't have to tell everyone everything but someone needs to know something! Someone needs to tell you something too. You will benefit from all of this.
AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19)
We all know that people have selective memories. Often too, they have selective perceptions of the present. They see what they want to see. If they find themselves seeing something that they do not want to see, they soon find a way to see it the way they want to see it! June is due to be an exceptional month. A transit of Venus will soon occur, opening your eyes to truths that you have been reluctant to acknowledge, whilst opening your heart to a hope that, up until now, you have felt afraid to embrace. Trust this.
PISCES (February 20 - March 20)
It is always easier to love someone from afar than to appreciate a companion. We can dream about those remote figures and imagine that they will be wonderful in every way, should we ever be lucky enough to spend time with them. When we project the same hopes and wishes on to those who are a little nearer to us, we keep encountering their faults and foibles. Yet June's rare transit of Venus enables you to see just how wonderful someone really is. Someone you are close to. This discovery may yet lead to a marvellous month.
