March 21-April 20
You’ve probably heard lots of horror stories about the current Saturn-Pluto conjunction which affects us all in different ways. But the changes this aspect indicate are mainly for the good – and for you, this has to do with income and career. The best advice is not to be a stick-in-the-mud: where you know things must end (or begin) accept developments with good grace – ultimately you profit. Meantime, your ruler Mars still dominates your domestic area – use this energy to make home improvements or build emotional bridges.
April 21-May 21
This is an excellent month for major plans now that the Saturn-Pluto merger is getting tighter. Any initiative to break the mould in life will generate its own friction – don’t expect everyone to be on your page. You’re thinking very ambitiously – and so you should. As a Taurean, you’ll not struggle with the idea that what you’re contemplating does take time, and anything rushed will most probably trip up. Financial considerations are uppermost of course: but don’t get dragged into the nuts and bolts at this stage. Stay focused on your dream or ideal. Let that be your lodestar.
May 22-June 21
Your astrological ‘birthday’ is 3 June this year: this is when New Moon appears in your sign, heralding a new cycle. What the chart shows for this moment is that your social world is key to success, be this professional or simply personal. Your range of contacts is enlarging beyond current boundaries: keep a careful eye on newcomers because among them will be priceless contacts, opportunities and inspiration. Helping this trend is Venus’ move into Gemini from the 9th, adding sheen to your image, sweetening your aura and motivating you to think a lot more about the impression you make on people. In financial matters, there may be a need to reach a compromise.
June 22-July 22
There’s quite a divide between what you need and what life asks of you. Of the latter, it’s busy-busy. Mercury’s presence in Cancer from early this month presents more situations in which you are called on to explain or articulate matters. Of the former, you’d be quite happy to withdraw into your shell for a spell of mindfulness at a luxury spa. For peace! Whatever your life situation, certainly take time out to reconnect with spiritual energies – walks in the countryside, a weekend at a kids-free hotel or a stay at a retreat: these will do you a power of good. The Saturn-Pluto growing conjunction does present you with ‘difficult’ people to handle: but it’s often this sort that help bring about refreshing change in life, even if we don’t like the song they sing.
July 23-August 23
Changeable Uranus stays at the top of your chart, indicating readiness for a change of life direction in one respect or other – if not this month exactly, anytime! This doesn’t mean every Leo is about to uproot and climb a mountain. Many changes can take in life which do not alter the basic structure of our lives, such as career or family. Uranus is also the planet of inspiration, so listen to your hunches, your dreams or instincts. June’s New Moon provides extra impetus for ideals and business – and for advancing your cause through social networks. Joining a group of the like-minded is one way to push Brand Leo.
August 24-September 22
The Saturn-Pluto conjunction in your house of passions won’t leave you feeling ebullient, yet these two power planets together offer potential tremendous energy to get across anything that you hold dear, such as a natal creative talent. You’ll find though that to tap this cosmic source, you must stay open to the need for a major alteration in how you live or think – whatever is blocking the flow must be removed. Life direction is the theme of June’s New Moon for you which is usually has to do with career; but it can be any activity that performs a public good. One answer lies well outside your current orbit – perhaps overseas or in a higher education institution.
September 23-October 23
This is the month to step up. Whatever you’re up to in life, this is the time to reach to the next stage, to enlarge your world, to sample things you might not have considered in the past – yes, to exceed yourself, in a sense. The early June New Moon is a vision-enlarger: at a basic level, this may manifest as long-distance travel; in another way, it is a pointer to new ‘territory’ in your work, private life or anything else. Sometimes what looks like a natural life-boundary is just our reluctance to move on or to stretch ourselves. Pushy Mars occupies your career house all month so progress can be expected where you take the initiative. With ruler Venus in the house of June’s New Moon from the 9th, your taste in company (business or otherwise) takes a most unusual turn.
October 23-November 22
A favourable month is forecast since the cosmic energies play to your strengths of intuiting what others think, of making money from activities you intimately understand and of contemplating extraordinary transformation within yourself. All this may seem a tall order, yet the June New Moon early-month occurs in the solar 8thhouse – the house associated with Scorpio. If you wish to get a loan, to make a risky purchase, to deepen a relationship of any kind or engineer a volte face which will enrage people close to you – well, you have a lunar boost to your enterprise. Since you rarely do anything lightly, you’ll have already given great thought to the value of your decision. Intensity is your second name. June is intense – and rather invigorating.
November 23-December 21
Those financial worries are still niggling away at you; all thanks to the Saturn-Pluto fandango in your house of income. Is this bad news? Not essentially. What this conjunction denotes for you is the need to accept that there’s no going back on recent changes in how you get by materially. A whole revolution is slowly taking place in how you regard the things of value in your life. In June however, you’ll spot a way to help the financial process through work, old or new – thanks to a Venus trine. This should help restore your old bounce – and do remember, your ruler Jupiter remains in your sign, promising growth where you show a readiness to grow.
December 22-January 20
If I say that there’s a touch of conflict in your chart – don’t lose sleep. All the signs have quite stormy indicators; it’s more a matter of how you deal with opposition, either from others or within the self. Ruler Saturn is right next to transformative Pluto at this time which can only mean that at the very least you’re aware of various options that could take you in a whole new life direction. That thought may fill you with dread. But it ought not. Suspend your scepticism and watch how acceptance of change also opens the mind to a greater awareness of the deficiencies in the status quo. One day you’ll look back on this time and say: Thank God/Goddess/Empty Space.
January 21-February 19
Think about what gives you joy – and then watch it come to life in June (provided it’s legal, of course). You really are back in business, telling the world what you really, really think, and leaving chaos wherever you go. It’s not that you mean to disrupt; you just can’t help yourself. Words emerge from your mouth and next thing, people look appalled. In June, you couldn’t care less about that. What really matters is filling that void between the world and what’s in your heart. Be this love, art, hobby, your kids, etc…your public awaits your next production.
February 20-March 20
Career expansion is a wonderful thing. Yet what happens if one’s domestic world demands you pay greater attention to its bawling just as your boss is inviting you up the promotion ladder? This is what awaits in June – but the answer is quite simple: hello to the human race. This old struggle between one’s public and private duties is universal, even more so today when employers have taken up the superstition that employees must be ‘passionate’ about their work to excel and work all hours. Quite frankly, if your employer is asking you to neglect the family, tell them where to go. But be assured that won’t happen. Explain to family and boss how your life works and how each part needs attention. Most times out of ten, you’ll find people understand.
