June is busting out all over with a rash of retrograde planets from Mercury, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto. Our thoughts, dreams and personal power can be misunderstood and misdirected. Which way is up? Better not ask right now.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
If you are looking to get a leg up on the competition in your job, why not wait until your actions produce carefully targeted results? Aries may hit a professional wall or be led astray by a false rumor. So just enjoy the summer with a relaxing vacation or a bunch of leisure activities. It is much nicer to lounge at the beach than sip stale coffee in an office lounge.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
If you have been carefully panning a vacation, be sure to get some second opinions before you book. Taureans are now like bulls in a china shop and could find themselves with a huge bill or sitting among a mess of unanticipated problems. Consider planning diversions closer to home or, better still, let pals decide on the festivities. June in Scranton? How nice....
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis are as hot as any June day. So what will you do about it? Secret admirers are planning something fun but your invitation may get lost in spam. Keep your options open, party within your means and be open to a romantic surprise or two at work. But act on your lusty emotions later this summer lest you scorch the landscape with your personal fire. Ouch!.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Rocky relationships may turn even rockier now so be prepared for any rock and roll. In fact you might push things a little too far with a less-than-well-chosen word to partners. Don’t be goaded to bite, as much as you are tempted to do so. Instead, put out good energies at home with some yet to be done spring cleaning. It is never too late in the season to get caught up.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
There is too much going on behind the scenes at work for you to make too much sense of it. Suffice to say that it is better that you keep your observations and opinions to yourself while the situation evolves. But Leos can sometimes get too concerned about how they are perceived. Don’t be goaded into making a bad move. Don’t bite or ever roar. Just wait....
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
There might be fun in the sun for others now but Virgos can better spend their time plotting their great escape. You may be more focused on making money which can then be sued for a grandly expensive jaunt. There is nothing wrong with that. In fact a great escape might give you an added advantage - greater perspective and world view. So get going.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Your home life may be in a bit of an upheaval this June. Have you taken on too many home based repair or renovation projects? Are pesky relatives making too many demands on you? Whatever is causing you extra stress, resolve to handle it by simplifying your life. Prioritize, Libra. Not everything or everyone deserves to be #1 ... except you.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
You have been contemplating some great things recently. But now, even a small idea can grow quickly, morph into action and get out of control. So if you are in the planning stages of anything important, try to keep it low level and quiet until later in the summer. Scorpios are strategists at heart. Keep an eye on the long view be conservative in any next steps.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
There are no get rich quick schemes that will work now, Sagittarius. So just forget about that. In fact, quick ideas and rash actions may cause you to lose more than you expect. Better to go off any enjoy the convivial company of friends in some low cost dive. Build your life with rich experiences through June. Go over the top extravagant later in the summer.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
You have an urge to get out in front of the crowd. But are you too much of a good thing? It depends on how much attention you feel you need. Capricorns feel the urge to wow and be front and center but it may be more advantageous for you to hold back in the shadows and see what happens to others first. There is plenty of time for you to take a bow... or even two.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
If your intuition goes into overdrive, take a moment to chill out and meditate. There may be too much going on behind the scenes for you to make much sense of it. Aquarians are happiest when everything is clear, honest and above board. But don’t be naive. When in doubt, take everything with a grain of salt. And add a dollop of sugar to it for taste.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces may misunderstand compadres. Try not to become overly involved in any friendly enterprise. It may wind up taking much more time and effort than you expect. You may also have too many social commitments at one time. Instead of over-scheduling, try to pull back and relax with a special you-know-who. Get to know them even better. Whoo hoo.
