Week of June 2nd – June 8th, 2014

There’s plenty of romance and energy on the agenda this week, even if you might not be able to think straight. June is relatively quiet compared to the last two months. The only big issue is Mercury turning retrograde June 7th through July 1st. This communications breakdown cycle begins in Cancer, the sign of family, food, home and emotions. It then goes backwards into mental Gemini. Plan to do a lot of short, quick projects this month rather than taking on something excessive. It would be good to catch up with old friends or to learn something new. This is the final full month of Jupiter in Cancer (since June 2013). The purpose has been to create a life that includes more nurturing, both of self and others.

Monday the 2nd is a particularly good day for sharing with others. Remember that Mercury turns retrograde at the end of the week, so take care of communications and date scheduling now.

On Wednesday, love planet Venus in Taurus will embrace enchanting Neptune in a supportive sextile. This aspect guarantees that Earth and Water signs will enjoy succumbing to the hypnotic spell of their sweetheart. Creative pursuits are also favored.

There are two Grand Trines on Thursday the 5th. This is auspicious, but it moves through very quickly. Do something nice for yourself. One triangle is in the feeling-oriented water signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. The other is in the practical earth signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. Be productive, but make sure your emotions are engaged in projects towards the end of the week.

Then, on Friday the Sun in Gemini will be at a supportive link to Uranus in Aries. High voltage energy along with a clever ability to move forward in your progressive personal agenda will become second nature. Everyone will enjoy focusing on what promotes their individual expression. In fact, this is what will make you come alive.

The Moon is in social Libra for the weekend. Confirm your plans and practice adaptability because Mercury turns retrograde on Saturday. The trickster planet is ready to cause trouble again. Mercury Retrograde begins in sentimental Cancer and will spin backward until July 1st. You might spend more time strolling down memory lane or dwelling on a family situation you wish you could “do over.” If you put your heart into it, maybe you can.
