Astrology Forecast: June 2013

FOR EVERYONE—June’s chart tells us we have arrived at a new starting point. The period of testing and preparation are over. A time of difficulty is ending. There’s always a catch, though. Fulfilling the opportunities opening before us will mean squaring our personal circles, or doing something we have always wanted to do but never thought possible. Like overcoming a lifelong case of stage fright, or surpassing our personal best. You’ll succeed if you’re willing to wrestle the occasional demon, or angel, along the way.

GEMINI (May 20 – June 19) Professional goals, working conditions and opportunities for financial growth and self-betterment are dovetailing. It will take time and effort to make it happen. You must support your boss’s agenda, which means added work and compromise. Still, your goals and those of your boss’s basically coincide. Things look good; however, potential supporters are making big changes. Their lives are in flux. They can’t commit. There are also interminable quarrels over how to proceed. Your best bet is to tend your own garden, for now … and your boss’s.

CANCER (June 20 – July 21) The transition that’s coming blends deep spiritual and psychological progress with professional and financial advancement. It’s a major life reorientation. You’ll also need to introduce a whole new you to the world. Expect challenges from partners and allies. They expect the old you, and they’re dealing with life changes of their own. Despite a sometimes argumentative, dismissive reaction from preoccupied friends, the new you will eventually grow on them and your new perspective will benefit them. For now, though, get used to explaining yourself.

LEO (July 22 – Aug. 21) Leo has exciting plans for the future. Opportunities are arising. Leos have leverage. Pieces are lining up like proverbial ducks. But you will need focus and an unusually peaceful mind to make it work. Many people in your life are experiencing life changes, too, just not as smooth as the one you are experiencing. Disruptions overflow too often into your life. Support friends and associates. For the foreseeable future, though, you’ll be forgiven for prioritizing your own goals and insulating yourself from the turmoil.

VIRGO (Aug. 22 – Sept. 21) The world is a daunting blend of challenges and opportunities, right now. Solutions for others involve lots of juggling. For Virgo, the challenges and opportunities are arranged more conveniently so they can pursue their goals more directly. You’ll also have the time and space to complete the necessary adjustments gracefully. Best of all, the key for Virgo is something Virgos do better than anyone: thinking things through thoroughly. This rare combination of circumstances will let Virgos make a vital life change in comparative peace.

LIBRA (Sept. 22 – Oct. 21) Librans love harmonious relationships and they’re good at tuning up disharmonious ones, but they’ll have their hands full in June. Change, especially in financial and professional areas, is disrupting new alliances and old. Even soft words can trigger big overreactions. However, relationship difficulties will be balanced by opportunities for personal growth. Chip away at relationship issues, but focus strenuously on self-development. Paradoxically, the spaces opened up by tensions in close relationships will make room for experiences that ultimately strengthen and deepen all your relationships.

SCORPIO (Oct. 22 – Nov. 20) To most Scorpios, the world looks like it’s in a blender set on high. Also, Scorpios are, well, feeling their age. I can see why they might think they’re at a disadvantage. In fact, they are well-positioned to guide events wisely, and benefit from them. This advantage will persist, even increase in coming months. More, Scorpios will feel entitled to exercise their power on their own behalf. They can and should retake control of their own lives to once again set their own course.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21 – Dec. 20) With personal finances and workplace politics both threatening to get completely out of control, I can see why Sagittarians would be apprehensive. But this is one of those times when attitude really counts. The facts on the ground can be turned to your advantage. They can become stepping stones to a much more secure and rewarding position. Abandoning a few outdated, self-defeating attitudes will quickly lead to greater self-confidence and an almost instinctive ability to successfully navigate the tense and turbulent currents around you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 – Jan. 18) Capricorns could experience June as an outstanding success or a nerve-wracking ordeal. It depends on which of June’s events you focus on. True, June will be fraught with contention and dissension, particularly among family, friends, work associates and other key alliances. Your administrative and diplomatic skills will be sorely tested. June will also begin a remarkable Capricorn success story. You can move a complex and ambitious plan decisively forward. Only Capricorn could pull this off. So don’t let your trial’s will eclipse your triumph.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 19 – Feb. 17) Aquarians are both idealistic and practical, but the idealistic (i.e. impractical) side often dominates. Nowadays, Aquarians are feeling especially driven to manifest both their idealistic and practical sides, to make idealism self-supporting. They’ll have to trade their occasionally combative, crusading style for a more mellow, personable one. And they’ll need to blend their idealistic and spiritual attitudes with more than a modicum of business sense. It’s even harder than it sounds; however, the planets are now supporting just such an ambitious makeover.

PISCES (Feb. 18 – March 19)  Your drive for a more fulfilling lifestyle often puts you at odds with the world around you. Home has become a safe-haven where you too often retreat, avoiding the work necessary to build that better lifestyle. Under present conditions, it’s understandable. Wouldn’t it be great, though, if you could learn to engage the world with the same ease and warmth you bring to home life—without compromising your ideals? It’s the missing piece of the puzzle. Present planetary conditions strongly support exactly that goal.

ARIES (March 20 – April 18) Aries is confronting opposition from the powers that be and family too. It’s all but overwhelming and there’s little you can do to prevail. The good news? When all is said and done, you will agree with the outcome. People will come to conclusions you can live with. You will find the new status quo quite agreeable. An irrational, disruptive influence is affecting relationships, especially with female family members, but it will bring healing in the end. Your budget will tighten in coming months.

TAURUS (April 19 – May 19) Taurus’s personal attitudes and their financial situation evolved significantly in recent months. The two processes followed separate tracks. But now, as both trends reach fruition, they are dovetailing, bringing you quickly to a major turning point. The new attitudes will fit neatly into the new livelihood. The new Taurus and a new livelihood will emerge more or less simultaneously, and successfully. The new livelihood will bring new social bonds and the new Taurus will bring new energy to old ties. Finances will improve noticeably.
