STARGAZING – Week of June 6th through June 12th, 2016

Jun 5, 2016 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing

If you need to research future projects, this is the perfect time to get focused on what you will need. In June, you get to see where you are genuinely engaged versus where you are only putting intellectual effort into projects. By the end of the month, you clearly know where you are willing to direct intense energy, or at least you know what you don’t want to do anymore.

The weekend is when you finish existing projects, do introspective activities, tend to mundane projects like laundry or fix-it tasks, or just take a relaxing nap.

Love is in the air this week when Venus meets the Sun on Monday, June 6th. Think of all the fun you’ll have while Venus conjuncts the Sun in Gemini. The moon has moved into nurturing Cancer. Spend time with loved ones and have an emotionally supportive meal together to take advantage of a feel-good Monday.

Gather the rosebuds while you may because there are clouds on the horizon on Thursday, June 9th, when Mercury moves into opposition with Mars. These two planets, in a standoff, are spoiling for a fight because they are in opposition. Mercury is in Taurus, stubborn, and Mars in Scorpio, sarcastic.

Especially on Thursday morning, watch out for impulsive verbal comments and impulsive actions in traffic (such as the person who cuts in front of you). Communications and traffic planet Mercury is in battle with selfish and impatient Mars. Take a breath before you speak, and give the car in front of you extra space, and this small irritation will pass you by as only a trifling annoyance.

The moon moves into productive Virgo for the weekend. You will feel better if you accomplish something tangible. Virgo likes to clean, fix, simplify, organize and eat healthy food. Saturday afternoon and evening is more social than Friday, but keep it simple both days. Express some practical optimism Saturday afternoon.

On Sunday, June 12th, Mercury moves into Gemini, the sign where it has an advantage. Because Gemini loves to talk, this combination makes the next three weeks one of the easiest times of the year to get out there and negotiate just about anything.

Although you could be faced with new beginnings and demands that leave you feeling overwhelmed, you’re still master of your ship of destiny.
