Once persistent Aries get something into their heads, they cannot be dissuaded. Say what you mean and mean what you say now. Opportunities abound in social situations so get yourself properly situated with the right crowd and wax poetic with your wry observations. There is no telling where it will lead. At least I will never tell.... Shhh.

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans learn to control their finances and make a green papery mountain out of a pile of moldy pennies. Hey Midas, let that golden touch increase the value of your portfolio and then go out and spend some of it. You have the wisdom and wherewithal to set some major personal changes into motion. So don’t sit back and wait for something to happen.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Your personal magnetism reaches a high luster level. Geminis have ample opportunity to show the immediate world  how beautiful they are and what they can do. People gravitate to you and introduce you into influential inner circles. So add a touch of flowery panache to every stray encounter to make your personal mark. All of July looks pretty rosy to me.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Go and score karmic points by getting involved in a favorite community or charitable cause. The more you give, the more you get so be generous and magnanimous. While you are at it, clear out any psychological baggage that is holding you back. After that, the there will be some well deserved rewards waiting for you that you earn through your own efforts.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos, like most folks, thrive on strong friendships. Now your social circle is so energized that it pulls you into its exciting  epicenter. Certain social swirls stir up the mix to a frothy lather. Who knows what can happen when you are so popular and become inspired? Take it to its logical conclusion and see how you can turn a friend into a fanatic.

Concentrate on any long term professional goals as all signs point to greater opportunity and success. Virgos attain palpable gains if they focus on the task and work at it. Why do I think that your goals are more gloss than grit? Maybe because even the most onerous tasks go smoothly. Grab it while you can. Too soon you could lose your ambition to summer sloth.

Personal transformation begins to take shape. (Or maybe you’re just mellowing with age?) Travel to romantic places is likely. Buy a ticket and get going, Libra. It may be the perfect opportunity for you to find your inner peace of mind. And who knows who may be waiting for you at the end of the line? Let’s hope that transportation is not delayed. .

Scorpios love sexual intrigue and conquest so it is nice that the week delivers you added sexual energy, enthusiasm and even a bit of luck. Use it or lose it. Sample the menu while you can lover; this planetary push won’t last forever and the wind can go out of your sail before you know it. Meantime, strive for a meaningful connection anyway you can get it.

Partnership issues heat up so expect to share your hopes and dreams with a significant other. If you are in the search mode, use the rush of lucky and romantic energy to set a course of action. Sagittarians sometimes need a friendly push because they tend to lack self confidence in this area. No problem now; you are flying high on cosmic fumes.

Capricorns will be amazed at how a little body work could have such dramatic impact. Get off your couch and exercise. Accentuate and define your best assets...ok your body too. That is, of course, that you do the proper exercise and diet regime to make the possible probable. Think nude beach season.... Sow and you shall reap you so and so..

How much fun can an Aquarius have? It depends upon how you manifest your creative destiny this month. Enjoy your free time while you can. Any project that you undertake now can become a personal masterpiece. The secret is to apply it to your day to day job or long term career. Grow an orchid in concrete, just to show ‘em how inventive you really are.

Pisces are advised to center their activities close to home since their sense of well being centers there. Family issues and unresolved matters involving an important relative in your life may take a turn for the better. This is good as long as you don’t compromise to please others. Be who you are and stop schlepping all that cockamamie ancestral baggage around town.

Lucky Numbers for the Week of June 29, 2012

Lottery ads tell us you only need a dollar and a dream. But it is also helpful to have a list of lucky numbers to help spur the good fortune ... or fortunes. So with that in mind, here are some lucky numbers that can be used in any helpful way. I gazed into a pool of water, Nostradamus-like, and contemplated the cosmos. Then I mixed the tarot cards and allowed the spirits to guide me to the cards that represent the lucky numbers for this week. Nothing is guaranteed but who knows ....?

I choose eight numbers because 8 is the number of wealth.

Here are the lucky numbers for the week of June 29-July 5, 2012:

7, 10, 11, 27, 38, 40, 45, 61

Astro Barry Writes About the Uranus Pluto Square

ProtestsPluto and Uranus have formed an almost exact square which is something that doesn't happen often. It is an intense and generational impact.

AstroBarry has written a great article on the subject.

Whenever Uranus and Pluto come together in any hard aspect (i.e., conjunction, opposition or square), we witness a period of increased societal unrest and turbulence, during which issues of human rights and social welfare are more loudly addressed. Astrologer-academic Richard Tarnas does a great job of detailing the historical specifics of what he calls these 'epochs of revolution' associated with Uranus-Pluto contacts. The last two of these revolutionary Uranus-Pluto periods in our recent history were (1) the mid-1960s, a time so renowned for these qualities that 'The Sixties' has essentially become a brand-name for describing progressive social change, and (2) the Great Depression during the first half of the 1930s, which followed the massive financial crash of 1929 and led to debates about the consequences of free markets, government interventions, and unequal distributions of wealth which uncannily mirror the content of today's public discourse.

Jupiter in Gemini by Jenni Stone

GeminiAstrologer Jenni Stone writes a fascinating and useful overview of Jupiter in Gemini. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, luck and extravagance moved into the air sign of Gemini on June 12 for the next couple of years. Let's see how this impacts each sign:


Jupiter in Gemini - predictions for your sign

Aries, Leo & Sagittarius (Fire signs) Jupiter in Gemini – brings confidence and energizes your courage and leadership. Find a class, start a blog, polish your speaking and writing skills and use your gifts to help others accomplish their goals. Try not to scatter your energy by going off in too many directions and don't get caught up in gossip and trivial issues. It has not been an easy year for you so far, but the foundation you are putting down will pay off.
Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn (Earth signs) – Jupiter in Gemini may be a little unnerving for you. There are many planets in air signs now and this brings change and less stability. Sometimes it will feel like your solid base is being blown away.  2012 has not been easy, but you have still be able to make headway. The rest of the year requires you to be quick and agile in your thinking – and that may go against the grain since you are usually methodical and need time to process. The Jupiter in Gemini energy may provoke you at times and bring tension to relationships. Talk it through & see other viewpoints.  
Gemini, Libra & Aquarius (Air signs) – Jupiter in Gemini energizes - you are already good at seeing different points of view – finding information – analyzing problem and finding situation. This placement brings new undertakings. If you have an urge to accomplish something – this is the year to dust off the dream and put down a foundation. Find courage to do it - don't just talk about it. The power is with you now. Our planet needs your courage - don’t be a hostage to the present circumstances - this is your time to break out.  

Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces (Water signs) Jupiter in Gemini – work on what is holding you back – forgive and let go of past hurts – your gifts will be needed as we push through into 2013. This is your time to work out feelings and get to the bottom of what has been holding you back. Use your insights and intuition to guide you in a constructive way - help yourself and others and be assured of a bigger, brighter, fuller future.


Horoscope for the Week of June 25, 2012

Harrison-ford-1The Sun makes its move into Cancer this week and opposes retrograde Pluto. If you’re contemplating revolution, gather in all of the sweaty masses and inflame their passions with your best rhetoric. Be prepared to be carried away on a raft of supporters. How athletic are they?

A new broom sweeps clean when fastidious Aries wield their mighty mean sticks. You’re finally ready to address much needed changes around the house. Foundations shimmy and shake and may need to be re-evaluated or dismantled. Remodel, move or just survey the landscape with fresh eyes. Sooner than you think, the dust will settle and you’ll enjoy some fresh air.

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
How diplomatic can you this week? Not much. Taureans may prefer to push things in a very specific direction rather than trying to find a happy compromise. That works for me!  Challenge the status quo as you pretend to listen to both sides of the argument. Problems won’t go away unless you tackle nitty gritty details. Pack a magnifying glass.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
That which you hold near and dear may not be all that desirable this week. All that glitters is not gold and the fun (and status) that you thought all these silly dust collectors would bring doesn’t measure up to expectations. Geminis need to reassess their expensive pastimes. (And that goes for people too.) You do more with less and you won’t miss the clutter and mess.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
You catapult into the center of attention this week. Cancers cannot contain themselves and burst on the social scene with wild abandon. There are times when you think you are pushing the envelope. And if that is true then keep on pushing! One day soon you will penetrate the social zeitgeist. Ah, but will they give you cabfare in the morning? Who cares!

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Empty out your Pandoras Box of secrets. It may be summer but this is a good spring cleaning in store. We carry around all sorts of negativity and can continue to beat ourselves silly under the yoke of hidden oppressions. Had enough? This is a cosmic “Stop” sign this week, Leo. Make a sharp turn and become “Slippery When Wet” rather than a “Big Dip”.

Don’t let friends take you to where you don’t want to go. Virgos are tempted to follow the “collective think” because they are so keen to make new powerful friendships. Why be molded by the group and pay for the privilege? Avoid the urge to buy acceptability. True friends, if they are worth their salt, will love you for who you are; warts, farts and all.

Some Libras know exactly where they’re going in life, but  some (too many) can’t quite make up their minds. Events this week agitate your career. It can mean that professional success is at hand or it can mean a detour and a much needed change in direction. The important thing is to use your strengths to best advantage, devious though they may be....

Lovers who are close at hand soon becomes underfoot and Scorpios may begin to yearn for more breathing space. Blame it on  unbridled passions when you get to thinking about all sorts of faraway adventures and international mischief. There are a few lessons to be learned on that long and winding road. Maybe it’s time to sneak off to a much needed recharging vacation alone.

How ready are you for prime time, Sagittarius? This week you are peeled like an onion; each hidden layer of your life, loves and dreams are exposed to all who grab a peek. There is nothing to fear if your inner soul and outer face are harmoniously in sync. If not, rest assured that change is a’coming so hang on, hang tight and hang out. Pack the sun screen for the spotlight glare!

Just when you thought you had found the perfect dance partner, the fates change the tempo. Sharpen your pencils; The test for true compatibility is on! Capricorns can reassess what works and doesn’t work and use this time as a prelude for future happiness. Hopefully it’s a trip to the moon on gossamer wings, but it’s better to know now if it’s just one of those crazy old things.

Sometimes it’s almost impossible to tie up all those loose ends into a nice neat package. Aquarians should accept the fact that this is one of those times. Your daily work load is pitted against your fun personal plans.  How to choose? It’s hard to play the social powerbroker when bosses expect to see you hum as a worker drone.  Don’t toss your invites yet. This too shall pass.

Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? Let me know after  this week is over. Pisces know how to party but they can now overextend. It will be hard to choose from a delicious and diverse array of jollies. Be a little picky and choose only the best venues to display your considerable talents. Why lose the wind in your sail so early in the cruise season?
