The process might have felt like a purge, a gradual cleanse of both body and mind – not always easy, but, boy do you feel lighter when you’re done!

Full Moon on June 20th highlights the partnership sector of your chart. You’ve learned and grown a lot in this area in the past 6 months. Now it’s time to step into a more mature level of mastery. Decisions need to be made, postponing a resolution is no longer a wise path. Yes, you love to keep your options open, but flexing too much can let others bend you to their will.

Dear CANCER, the weeks before your Birthday call you deep into your interior castle to explore the way you weave your world with thoughts and words. With lovely Venus as your guide, you can feel comfortable enough to dive into this dreamy realm, trusting there’s treasure to be found. Of course, any mythical quest has its dangers and dragons – you have to cut through the cobwebs of bygone patterns of belief and avoid getting sucked into the mire of melancholy memories. The first days of the month may indeed find you sorting thru some “stuff”, as the Moon wanes into darkness. Hints of where the treasure may lie arrive after the June 4th New Moon, as Venus crosses the path of the Sun. A long-forgotten longing awakens in your heart, fueled by fresh hope. As the crescent Moon appears in the sky, your desire to create a life of beauty starts to crack its cozy cocoon, seeking visible expression. Pick up a promising creative project that’s been gathering dust, or start fresh with a new idea. As Anaïs Nin so aptly wrote: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
Venus emerges from the underworld on June 17th to prepare for your Birthday party. The Sun follows on June 20th, ushering in the Summer Solstice and the start of the season to celebrate YOU.

Make the most of your special season, dear cosmically creative Cancer!
Dear LEO, with Mercury, the messenger planet purposefully plowing ahead again, any setbacks or delays in your worldly work are ready to unwind.

Full Moon on June 20th brings clarity and closure to a set of creative endeavors. If you’ve spent the past month or two digging thru your files, reworking past projects and rehashing old ideas, you’ll know by the end of this month if you’re finally “done”:) If the result looks like a failure, don’t punish yourself by trying to salvage it out of sheer stubbornness. Let it go, burn the tattered pages on the Solstice fire! You’ll be free to start anew, to fall in love again and again. Speaking of matters of the heart, this midsummer Moon can cast a clear beam on your romantic adventures as well, helping you separate petty players from real knights in shining armor. Ripping off the rose-colored glasses can reveal a not-so-pretty picture (like, geez, “what was I thinking?”;) Again, don’t beat yourself up, dear! Giving yourself the royal pardon helps you move on to merrier meadows! There are plenty of birds and bees buzzing around, you won’t be bored this summer for sure;)
Dear VIRGO, with Mercury purposefully plowing ahead again and Venus attracting attention at the top of your chart, your career is heating up.

Remember, you have Jupiter in your posse – don’t settle for the safety of the same old job if it no longer sparks your heart.
Summer Solstice arrives on a bright Full Moon on June 20th, shedding light on your Earthy foundation. This turning of the seasons can bring a sense of clarity and closure – perhaps you’re literally done with your present abode, ready to follow the rainbow to greener pastures (the new job may well pull you away!). Or, on the internal plane, a long-standing tension in your tribe can find a welcome resolution in wise acceptance, agreeing to disagree and disengage from the struggle and strife. You’re ready to reap the harvest of experience and move on. Potent new possibilities await with a supportive beam between Pluto and Jupiter on June 26th – risking to open your heart to a brave new person or a creative project can pay off big time, if you dare.

Venus crosses the top of your chart on June 17th, attracting ample opportunities to put this newly acquired knowledge to use. The following three weeks are golden for guiding your career to a course towards your dreams and desires. The Summer Solstice Full Moon brings a sense of clarity and closure, allowing you to drop distracting thought habits and embrace a wider vision of life. On a practical level, you’d do well to weed out your contact list and minimize all manner of extraneous information (newsletters, feeds, etc). There’s a difference between enlightened curiosity and omnivorous hunger for info. Discerning that difference, moment-to-moment helps you keep your eyes on the prize. Point the needle of your compass towards your truest joy and you won’t steer wrong!
Dear SCORPIO, seeds of potent partnerships planted past month are ready to spread their roots. With Venus as your guiding light, this journey into the tender and touchy terrain of physical intimacy can lead to a feast of deep delights. However, the path to this desirable destination is neither straight nor smooth:) Communication is key to clearing all the twists and turns – trusting your dance partner enough to ask some genuine questions.

Perhaps you missed a crucial plot point, an “a-ha!” moment that’s been patiently waiting your reluctant return:) Use this glance in the rearview mirror to get really honest with yourself – aim the intense beam of intelligent curiosity at your own secret strategies. Don’t worry, you don’t have to reveal your hand to anyone else;) Mars turns direct on June 29th, unleashing your passion and amping up your energy level big time. As the warrior planet flexes his mighty muscle, you’re now in a much better position to use this mojo with clear and conscious intent. Remember, the magic of the mind is mightier than the sword this month – choose your words wisely!
Dear SAGITTARIUS, with Venus gracing the committed relationship sector of your chart, your special someone can be a genuine source of lightness and JOY this month. The weight of Saturn in your sign has caused cracks of grumpiness to appear in your normally so delightfully buoyant demeanor. Allow your sweetheart to tickle your funny-bone a bit, to coax you into a much needed moment of silliness and perhaps even (don’t tell Saturn!;) an evening of indulgent passion. All the extra work and duties on your shoulders may make you bristle at such a flight of fancy. Venus whispers in your ear: “A better plan is to yield to a bit of pleasure, the work can wait till tomorrow:)” Fresh seeds of passionate possibilities swirl in the air after the June 4th New Moon.

June 4th New Moon brings a fresh flurry of ideas, provoking another revision in your routine. This topsy-turvy time can really test your patience, but grumbling will get you nowhere:) There is a method to this madness, if you can shush the chatter of competing thoughts and sense the larger symphony, the underlying melody that drives all this movement.

Becoming a ninja of consciousness is one of the brilliant possibilities, if you can commit to tireless training. It all starts with a single conscious breath:)
Dear AQUARIUS, love is in the air! Cupid is cavorting about you on his cute little wings, ready to shoot an amorous arrow:) Warm summer evenings call for all manner of fun and mischief – playing hookie from work to party in the park with your posse or catching a sunset movie on a rooftop, mixing with a mélange of gorgeous creatives.
