ARIES: You reach a professional milestone around the Full Moon on the 9th, but testing influences with a family member or in regard to your residence can provide a less than advantageous atmosphere in which to ascend to your true calling. The 2nd, 10th, 17th and 20th can also be tempestuous. Work this out so you can enjoy the pleasurable social vibrations present from the 6th to the end of the month. The 18th is especially grand and you may meet someone really incredible in even the most routine of your daily affairs. Creative and romantic doors of opportunity open after the 23rd with even more to come next month. The 26th is dynamite for a new love relationship or a project connected to your self expression
TAURUS: There are dynamic influences unfolding and you may be preparing for a big adventure this month. The Full Moon on the 9th signals a new life direction for you, or that you get news from afar that allows you to travel or publish. You may be finalizing a course of study or wrapping up paperwork that will allow you to move forward with an educational pursuit. Finances are in a positive state this month with very good opportunities on the 7th and 18th to show what you got to the people who matter. A conversation you begin on the 6th regarding your residence will lead to bigger opportunities next month, a full scale home improvement or move across country could feature for you. Look at the 24th for clues.
GEMINI: Financials remain in tight focus, with a lot of energy applied to cultivating your resources and building up your bank account. You can have an important insight about security on the 5th. Be cautious not to over extend, it will be easy to imagine you have more than what is actually available. Venus in your sign from the 5th bestows loverly vibrations. You are at ease and ready to accept pleasure. The 18th and 30th are your best for important dates and developing a love connection. A more contentious flavor lies in store on the 24th and you may need to modify a commitment (or your own relationship to that commitment) in order to move forward in a partnership. A great deal of energy in your social life this month suggests a very exciting pace. You’ll love this one!
CANCER: Watch out for tricky and confrontational scenarios that may arise on the 2nd, 10th, 17th and 20th as rather contentious vibes can be present on these rather volatile dates. The Full Moon on the 9th signals a major commitment is culminating, and this union is underscored with passionate and romantic energy, making this a potent time for marriage or engagement. Venus remains tucked away behind the scenes for most of the month, suggesting there is a hidden facet to your love life right now, or that you might be caring for a distressed or ill partner. Finances are also a big topic this month into next and you can get key conversations and negotiations rolling on the 7th. The 19th is a great day for signing a contract or reaching an agreement. Mars activates energy from the 21st and you will be motivated to earnings (and spending in equal regard,) through early September. The New Moon on the 23rd signals changes.
LEO: Socially this will be a very exciting time for you with a great deal of communication and events. The 18th is wonderful for a party or get together. Mars from your sign on the 21st encourages energy and passion towards the attainment of your personal goals. The Leo New Moon on the 23rd reveals (or begins to,) the major developments coming up. (Next month has a real WOW factor to it, eclipses are en route!) This is a highly stimulating period in which to take action. Events behind the scenes demand attention in the first part of the month. Confront a challenging person at your job or achieve your personal best during the New Moon on the 9th. You can effectively release the past and bad habits in this period, clearing the way for potent developments that will be on offer shortly.
VIRGO: Career indications are still bright, the 18th is phenomenal to see financial gains through your chosen profession. There are early suggestions that your solar year is winding down as an element of closure comes to foreground. From the 6th you’ll notice a desire to withdraw so that thoughts may turn to what needs to end and be released as you prepare for a new cycle of growth and activity. By the 21st it will be time to nestle in for your own version of a long winters nap. A retreat or psychotherapy can be very useful in this period if you feel you need to address any leftover residue from the last 2 years Mars cycle that began in your sign back in late September of 2015. As this cycle was so deeply influenced by the Lunar Node transit, this may be helpful for clearing away the past and making room for the positive new beginnings coming in September.
LIBRA: Domestic matters heat up this month, as a highly potent Full Moon on the 9th illuminates the changes that are occurring on the home front. You can take a stand for what you desire in this dynamic period. Neptune is helpful, so a compassionate attitude can soften the edges and bring about a positive outcome. The 17th can prove pivotal for the future of a professional association. Business partners can really test your patience and a foggy aspect to Venus at this time can soften your resolve. Listen and wait, if you can. A degree of urgency seems present here. The 18th offers a much better ambience and you might get good news from afar that sends you soaring. (Maybe literally! You could be going on a distant voyage this month.) The New Moon on the 23rd clarifies the direction and intent of a group project. This could also be a creative endeavor linked to technology and to potentially connect many people together in some kind of network.
SCORPIO: Very powerful overtones are present this month and there can be some very dynamic transitions. The 2nd, 10th, 17th and 20th all have a rather volatile quality to them. Turning points are indicated and the outcome has a lot to do with your headspace. Maintaining to hard a line can prevent you from valuable opportunities, so attempt to keep an open mindset. There can be financial rewards, either though a spouse, bank, investment, or some other form of outside income. Agreements and negotiations made during the Full Moon on the 9th will be highly favorable. The 18th and 30th feature additional details. A really incredible professional opportunity is on queue during the last week of July. You star is rising swiftly from this month into next. Prepare for action on the 26th. Big changes are brewing.
SAGITTARIUS: There can be intense events in your finances this month as the Full Moon on the 9th opens the door to a powerful new source of income. It’s possible you have been vetted by a bank or investor and negotiations conclude around this time. This would equally apply to your salary or income in any regard. A sweet Venus influence presides over your partnerships and the 18th and 30th are both exquisite for connecting with someone new or enhancing your ongoing partnership. A social event or lecture you attend can provide you with a wonderful opportunity for making a love connection. The Leo New Moon on the 23rd sees your wanderlust on the rise. You may be preparing to travel or study, with more news next month!
CAPRICORN: Partnerships continue to be highlighted, but be wary of contentious vibes early in the month. Something has to change, and that something might need to be you or your attitude. Is it really so scary to let someone in just a little? Work and productivity are enhanced by the presence of Venus this month and you may be in the midst of an exciting creative collaboration or artistically stimulating project or assignment. This work is paving the way to the really awesome opportunities you’ll get professionally this Fall, especially around the 18th. A Full Moon in your sign on the 9th signals transformation and self awareness will be especially potent themes for you this month. You can choose to exert your power productively by remaining alert to your intuition and choosing your words carefully. There can be some conflict energy with rivals this month and taking the high road should be your priority.
AQUARIUS: he month is sprinkled with a few land mines, tensions are rising in your private life and can put you at odds with your burgeoning productivity. Venus from Gemini on the 6th will stimulate a loving ambience and make this an ideal period for romance and other pleasure pursuits. The 18th and 30th are really spectacular for reaching out into new territory. Tending the balance between work and personal life will be the hardest work you do, and confrontations on the 2nd and 10th will attest to private matters that require resolution. Attention turns to relationships on the 7th, and Mars from the 21st coupled with a New Moon on the 23rd generate incredible potential for meetings and exciting developments, with even more set to come your way during a dynamic phase next month. The 7th, 14th, 19th and 24th are all favorable for dates and social activities with someone you would seek to connect more deeply with. You may even meet someone unexpectedly in the course of your daily activities, so get out there!
PISCES: Romantic energy is still strong this month, as is an urgent desire to self expression or creative undertakings. There could be some challenging moments on the 2nd, 10th and especially the 17th, a friend or group you are associated with could have other ideas and stifle your freedom in some way. Good news can come in regarding a job or assignment. Look to the 19th, 24th and 26th for developments, and to schedule important meetings. You make a good impression and can work your way up the ladder of success in a chosen professional field. From the 6th, very pleasant and harmonious vibrations accent your domestic realm. Your nesting instinct and desire to create a safe and comfortable environment for yourself is strong. Decorating projects go well now and you may find lovely objects to make your house more beautiful. The 18th and 30th are ideal.

STARGAZER JUNE HOROSCOPES:
ARIES: Domestic and residential matters are the focal point of the next two months, and if you are having issues at home or with family members these will need to be addressed. A significant conversation at the end of June and the New Moon on the 23rd all portend big developments unfolding in your base of operations. The 26th is auspicious for decorating or making your home more relaxing. Choose a plant or art object that will bring you pleasure. Really positive financial improvements, possibly linked to new opportunities in your profession (especially around the 24th) can be expected throughout the month. Put your best self and work forward to make the most of these good vibrations. Inspiration on the 20th connects to your earnings potential. Tune in to creativity.
TAURUS: This will be one of the most pleasurable months of the year for you as a transit of Venus beginning June 7th infuses your life with luxury and pleasure. Mars in Cancer also stimulates a nice social ambience, and the 9th is particularly auspicious for a social event or special occasion. The 20th and 24th are especially amorous, and good for planning romantic interludes. If you are unattached circumstances might be right to hatch a fun new liaison. Finances remain in frame and ideas and negotiations can go well at this time. Neptune and Saturn are still at large, however and seem to seek to undermine your efforts. Keep your cool on the 13th and 18th. Strong forces behind the scenes are working to your advantage. A victory on the 1st shows you what you fought in April was worth it.
GEMINI: Sun and Mercury in your sign this month promise a busy period and a great time to make progress on personal goals and initiatives. Jupiter direct on the 9th sends fresh and positive impulses for your creative activities, boosting your confidence and desire to self expression. The 3rd (and to a lesser degree the 13th,) are great for getting out there and flaunting what you have got to offer. Dynamics with a partner will be lively, expect a significant culmination around the 9th. The Full Moon amplifies your desire to stage up a relationship. Entanglements on the 15th and 18th will force a definition of your boundaries with this person. Finances are also highlighted and there are profits to be made in an artistic enterprise on the 26th. Your imagination holds the key. An offer or agreement you make over the 23rd New Moon sets the stage.
CANCER: You get an upsurge of energy and can be very dynamic when Mars enters your sign on the 5th. You can equally be cranky, so watch how much you take on. You tap inspiration on the 26th, and can make progress in a creative project. Venus from Taurus on the 7th activates positive love mojo, and the 9th, 20th and 24th are super harmonious for connecting your hopes and dreams within your partnership. Single Cancer can make meaningful introductions on these dates if attending parties and events. Progress in a residential matter sees forward motion after the 10th, as Jupiter switches direction and enables you to make decisions with greater confidence. You may dwell on the past between the 7th – 21st. All is fine with this as long as you don’t let paranoia slip into the mix, worse yet, make a commitment or comment you didn’t intend to. Best to keep quiet during this brief, introverted phase. Sun and Mercury in your sign on the 22nd signal big new beginnings are on the horizon. State your intentions, wishes and desires for the coming year during the Cancer New Moon phase on the 23rd.
LEO: A joyous and open hearted mood begins to prevail after a season of uncertainty. Professional life takes on a rosy complexion and you’ll find some really good offers are extended, especially around the 20th and 24th. Finding a way to make time for your social life while experiencing a tendency or desire to withdraw requires some negotiation of time and priorities. A tendency to withdraw in this phase is indicated, but there will be numerous social opportunities to attend to. Prepare to juggle a busy schedule, and carve out time for yourself where you can. The Full Moon on the 9th highlights a culmination in a personal creative project, or you may make progress in a love relationship or hear of a pregnancy, news about your kids, etc. Energy levels will probably be low on the 4th and 15th. Skip these for your major personal initiatives or important events and meetings.
VIRGO: A harmonious and supportive ambience this month helps you rebuild after a season of uncertainty. You can clear the air in a partnership on the 1st. Strong romantic vibrations on the 9th, 20th, 24th and 26th all provide wonderful opportunities to experience pleasure and grow your bond. A love relationship that has gone through the ringer gets revitalized and you’ll see the rewards for the tough work you did in April, especially in the early part of the month. Professional aspects are still strong, with positive influences and associations being made in your career. This all makes for a very busy month! A Full Moon on the 9th can bring resolution to domestic matters, especially the ones that have been particularly challenging. There is something unconventional or unexpected about the agreement or arrangement you make now, but it has very positive implications. You may move or make a sudden change to your home.
LIBRA: You’ll be hitting a good stride this month as Jupiter turns direct on the 9th. A great deal of activity in your profession could see you traveling and working hard. The New Moon on the 23rd connects with Mercury, making this a great time to start a marketing campaign or conduct outreach towards your enterprises or professional goals. The ambience is dynamic and even competitive. It’s time to fight for what you want and what you are worth. It could be easy to over extend or estimate your abilities on the 25th. Energy levels that are high right now will not remain so forever so consider the long game on this one before you jump. A sweet romantic moment on the 9th allows you to resolve some of the bigger challenges your relationship has endured this year. There can also be a key financial opportunity through an outside source or lender that assists in a career matter, such as starting your own business. Express your creativity, relax or travel to a fresh locale on the 26th.
SCORPIO: A work assignment or new job opens wonderful doors for you professionally on the 3rd – 4th. There is an unexpected quality to this offer or opportunity. Your inventiveness and independence pay off. A relationship flourishes as very loverly vibrations are illuminated in your committed partnerships. You may travel with your spouse, and the 9th, 20th, 24th and 26th are really stunning dates to find and seek pleasure within a relationship. Financial matters may keep you busy this month as well and negotiation for a loan, investment or other source of shared revenue can go very well around the 3rd, 18th, and 20th. The 13th is mixed, there are positive influences, but also some confusion lingering over any agreements. Hear what people have to say, but set aside big decisions for a better time. Financially you may see one source of income ending around the Full Moon of the 9th, or an agreement culminates at this time. Favorable influences preside and all turns out well here.
SAGITTARIUS: You feel a strong sense of yourself and where you are headed during the Sagittarius Full Moon phase on the 9th. This can provide a nice relief where partnerships have been demanding for you. Although they continue to (hopefully in a good way!), this is still a nice time to appraise you mid year progress report and really dig in where you have not yet made as big of strides as you had hoped since your last birthday. Jupiter direct on the 9th opens the pathway to fulfillment and joy. Conviction returns to your enterprises, especially those linked with a group or organization you work with. Watch for office romance on the 9th, you could suddenly feel a wave of affection for someone close to you on the job. You enter a period of gestation from the 5th. An intimate relationship may deepen as you delve into the realm of discovery through creating security and trust within your connection. The 26th will be awesome for just such an exploration.
CAPRICORN: A romantic partnership can really heat up this month, with very exciting developments culminating in your love life, especially around the 9th. Schedule events and connect with your special person on the 20th, 24th and 26th as these dates hold some real magical mojo for you. A New Moon on the 23rd brings a symbolic beginning to your union, and this could be the time to phase up a commitment or amend to find the love you desire and deserve if you are ready to find a mate. The ambience is definitely work hard/play hard this month and striking the balance will be a bit of a juggle with so many enticing developments in your personal life splitting your attention with a very energized work environment. Jupiter direct on the 9th will signal an opportunity to move forward with a cherished professional objective. Where you have struggled with domestic upheaval you can see some of the pieces falling into place, especially in the early days of the month and from the 18th – 20th. You can make choices that are authentic to your real desires now and also may get assistance from a family member.
AQUARIUS: It’s a multilayered month as attention falls between the private and personal and a new job or position. A hard working phase begins around the 5th and you’ll be getting busy with something that will likely play a huge role in your success story this Fall. Inspiration presides on the 26th and you may be seeing progress made on an initiative you started developing in February if not January. The New Moon on the 23rd opens a door to a new professional landscape. Communications industries could play a role, or an assignment or new job can keep you very busy. Over the next four months you will be active doing work that will enhance your professional profile and reputation. By the later part of this year you will advance correspondingly so stay focused on long term goals and what you want to accomplish as you select your projects and make your commitments. Mid month is positive for communicating personal goals or creating strategy that will help you get a project off the ground. You could also be busy dating, and the 13th and 20th are great for connecting or growing a bond with someone special.
PISCES: You achieve a professional milestone on the 9th, as a Full Moon oversees and brings culmination to the hard work of the last two years. It might be time to turn in one hat and pursue a new course of activity as a project comes to completion. A great deal of activity in your residential zone from the 7th – 21st can offer a flurry of visitors or changes within the domestic environment. Contentious vibes on the 4th, 15th and 18th can rattle your cage. Take it easy on these dates as you may feel a bit vulnerable. Socially this continues to be a lovely time, and pleasure pursuits as well as day to day activities all provide stimulation and pleasure. The 9th, 20th, 24th and 26th are immeasurably blissful and should be spent among those you love deeply. Neptune retrogrades in your sign mid month, and your psychic sensors get a reprieve through the end of November. This is a period in which to process the events of the prior 7 months, especially the visionary stuff and give it some time to gestate. See what remains and stands out for you at the end of the year. True love takes hold of your heart during a blissful New Moon on the 23rd. Reveling your feelings will be an amazing trigger in a relationship.
Summer begins on an auspicious note, as Jupiter and the North Node reach a second conjunction at 15 Virgo on the 21st. Very positive developments can occur now, as assistance and luck can be present in our evolutionary endeavors that set us on course for bigger and better opportunities ahead. Jupiter trine Pluto Sunday June 26th expands upon this opportunity, as good fortune and optimism stimulate a longer range transformation that has been occurring. Dreams and objectives that unfold in the large scale can manifest now. Look back to the activities and enterprises you engaged with early October of last year as well as in March. Initiative you have taken can now trigger really expansive opportunities that allow you to completely change your life for the better.
Mars is direct from Wednesday June 28th. After 2 1/2 months of misdirection and thwarted agendas, we can begin to put things into motion and move forward. From the depths of Scorpio, we are all considering/reconsidering our closest alliances, and matters of intimacy and establishing emotional trust have been a rather intensive subject for the last several weeks. Saturn traveled a substantial part of it’s retrograde last Summer in this precise area of the zodiac, so if you are feeling a sense of de ja vous, or that the topics, obstacles and delays of that period are being revisited, you are right on with that intuition. With Mars now direct and finalizing it’s journey through Scorpio through July, there is energy on hand to tackle an ongoing issue endemic over the prior year. Cancer transits and particularly Venus trine Mars July 6th and Sun trine Mars July 16th will offer the necessary emotional insight required to rectify an issue that exists in our most interior realm, generating a harmonious climate for smoothing over the difficulties that may have been present recently. Mercury trine Mars on July 10th is a great day to have a significant conversation that will bring clarity to this matter.
Venus in Cancer – Two of Cups: “There is nothing to do but enjoy what life offers. I am now ready to let into my life the love relationships which will fulfill me.” ~ Gerd Ziegler
From Cancer, energy turns inward, and a nurturing ambience is present throughout July. Not so easy are oppositions to Pluto/Capricorn and squares to Uranus/Aries, which present unpredictable turning points marked by crisis or confrontation. The Cancer New Moon on July 4th falls in stark opposition to Pluto, and there will be a critical departure or significant change at this time. Late June into July has a highly gestational quality about it. We will withdraw to cultivate our treasure from within the interior world. Leo transits – beginning with Venus on July 13th – open us up to fun and recreational avenues that enhance pleasure, love and self expression. The gestation is complete and that which has undergone metamorphosis within us can now be revealed to the outer world.
By August we move into a brisk and exciting, but potentially tense phase that leads up to the immensely significant Virgo Eclipse on September 1st. In many ways, the major activity cycle for 2016 begins now. The North Node and Virgo-Jupiter are highly active, but harsh alinements from Virgo to Saturn in Sagittarius suggest we have major obstacles to overcome in order to engage with the evolutionary opportunities offered by this Eclipse. Mercury triggers the eclipse degree on August 6th, and Venus on the 13th. Intuition into future developments, as well as agreements and conversations around these dates can offer clues and set the stage for that which develops around September 1st.
Saturn resumes direct motion on August 13th as well, allowing us to release the karma of the prior phase and build anew with a greater understanding of our personal objectives currently manifesting through Sagittarius. A week later, Mars leaves the shadow of the prior retrograde, creating a fire and ice conjunction with Saturn on the 24th at 9 Sagittarius. This signals the beginning of an important 2 year cycle in which the topics of Saturn – Sagittarius are now really crystalizing. Mars transverses through the eye of the needle, stimulating action to be taken upon these goals with urgency. This conjunction can be very challenging, your drives are subjugated to practical concerns and this can manifest in feelings of restriction or frustration. The best use of this energy is to methodically and patiently work towards long range goals or on aspects of life that require more effort as they are quite obvious now.
Ouch! A whole lot of Saturn square during the Virgo Eclipse! At least Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in cahoots should help us stay optimistic 🙂
The Virgo Eclipse is an incredibly potent period in which we’ll see massive culminations and transformations occur. The Mutable t-square is activated, and the longer issue of it’s resolution is possible now. From Virgo, transiting planets, as well as the Eclipse period itself tap Neptune in opposition and Saturn by square. Pluto lends support by trine, an aspect that governs significantly over the Mercury – Virgo retrograde, (August 31 – September 22) with the two locked into a deeply penetrating conversation throughout the last two weeks of September. It’s highly likely developments, activities and opportunities that emerged in June (Jupiter – North Node, Jupiter trine Pluto) are featured prominently, with really remarkable growth occurring from August into September.
What makes this whole thing a bit squirrly is this issue between the transiting planets and North Node in Virgo conflicting with Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius as well as Neptune off in Pisces. And Mercury, that rascal and trickster, is retrograde, tying up our progress as we attend to renegotiating massive chunks of all the positive prospects revealed during this phase. Virgo is of course, the master of details, refinement and attainment of perfection. To get there, Virgo must see all the components that make up the whole, which has a decisive quality to it, while Sagittarius is focused on The Bigger Picture. Pisces – Neptune seeks to infuse inspiration and spiritual conviction, though most impractically, which can have an unravelling effect on our efforts. Finding a way to make all these disparate energies work together is the key to resolving the dilemma we are confronted with, and quite worthwhile to undertake. When you successfully reconcile this issue, you become practically invincible in having all these energies at your disposal. Choose to be controlled by nothing by not allowing distractions to derail your efforts. Take August and September one day and one task at a time. If you have set your intentions in June, stay that course.
Libra – The Scales of Justice
September 9th we herald the return of Jupiter to Libra, a highly beneficial placement that enhances the development of fairness and equilibrium within our one on one partnerships. The next 14 months will encourage diplomacy and lend a wonderful ambience to our one on one relationships. Growth through partnerships is highlighted. The September 30th New Moon in Libra will make a significant connection to this placement, and will signal the brilliant culminations on route for December.
