Star Wisdom: Create the Life You Desire


astrologyJUNE COMES IN with a light touch but things heat up big-time at the solstice. Mercury stations retrograde in Cancer on the 26th.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Jupiter and Mars in your communication house are teaming up to help you use your words and thoughts to create more of the life you desire. If you’ve been putting off writing a book, grant proposal or other important communiqué, now is the time to launch. Just get it started before the 26th when Mercury goes retrograde.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…You might be spending more than you wanted, with Mars in your money house. But you’ve also got lucky Jupiter attracting more income. Focus on what you really need to achieve your dreams and funnel your resources in that direction. Self-esteem is key and the cosmos wants you to grow into it now.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…This feels like an extremely positive month for you. You’ve got good money mojo, you’ve got energy planet Mars in your sign driving you to get more of what you want out of life, and you’ve got lucky Jupiter in your sign through the 25th. It’s time to reach for your dreams and maximize your potential. Go get ’em, tiger.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…Take it as easy as you can in the first three weeks of the month, because once the solstice hits you’re back on the hot seat. You have some potent career opportunities coming up, but remember that your relationships need to support you, not just the other way around. Mercury retrograde in your sign pushes you to see yourself more clearly and streamline so you can reach your goals.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…Finding your tribe is the theme in the first three weeks of June. To take the next big step towards your life goals, you need a network, group or community that can support you. Good fortune planet Jupiter and warrior planet Mars team up to help you connect with the right people, so don’t hold back. Use the period after the 21st to reflect, revamp and retool.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…You know the formula that says Luck = Opportunity + Preparedness? You’re getting so much clearer on what you want out of life, so use the energy of Mars and Jupiter in your career house to stake your claim and do the groundwork necessary to make yourself attractive to Lady Luck.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…There’s never been a better time to follow your bliss and commit to your life’s work. People see your value right now — probably better than you do — and if you cooperate with the cosmos by honoring your ability and your achievements, you might be surprised at the opportunity that shows up now.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You need to get clear on what you need from the important people in your life. Be willing to do some soul searching; this is a chance to discover what has been blocking you from the support (whether financial, emotional or sexual) you need to be all you can be. Your intuition is even sharper than usual, so consciously choose to trust your heart.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Learn everything you can about relationship this month. What is the real purpose of it? Why are some people so successful at it, while others fail repeatedly? What does it feel like and sound like to communicate with proper boundaries? Your ruling planet Jupiter exits your relationship house on the 25th, but he wants to leave behind a major gift of insight and awareness.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…While everyone else is out tiptoeing through the spring tulips, you’re hard at work on a riddle that needs to be solved or a job that needs to be done. Use the New Moon on the 8th to make a new start with your health, diet or exercise program. As the poster child for cosmic evolution, you need access to all of your life force. The solstice brings a relationship to the forefront with a challenge and an opportunity.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…Get out and have some fun! With Mars and Jupiter in your 5th House of creativity and romance, this is a chance for you to fall in love with life again. You’ll have plenty of work once we get to the solstice, but you know what they say about all work and no play. Use the first half of the month to honor your inner artist and rediscover your joy.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…Focus on what needs to change in order for you to feel emotionally secure. Your ruling planet Jupiter is blessing you with the chance to heal a deep family pattern that left you feeling unsafe for much of this lifetime. A fresh breath of romance and creativity is set to enter your life, so take this opportunity to heal your past and build a firm foundation for the future.
