JUNE 15 - JUNE 21, 2018
AQUARIUS Jan 20 – Feb 18
Life always involves a balancing act between how things are and how you’d like them to be. On the one hand, you have to recognize reality for what it is. On the other hand, you have to be able to visualize ways it could be better. The thing to avoid is imagining reality as something that it isn’t. You won’t fall into the trap of wishful believing as long as you’re vigilant.
PISCES Feb 19 – March 20
Sometimes the old way of doing things just doesn’t cut it anymore. Whether you’re a line cook who’s sick of using dull knives or a pastry chef who wants an oven that doesn’t burn the croissants, gosh darn it, today’s a good day to start insisting on change. It’s the squeaky wheel that gets the grease, you know. And nobody likes a burnt croissant.
ARIES Mar 21 – Apr 19
Take a deep breath, because respiration, as everyone who’s done breathing exercises knows, contributes greatly to inspiration. If you’re already inspired, go ahead and aspire to make your ideas real. You can do it (especially if you’re keeping your thinking well oxygenated) and chances are a heck of a lot greater than average that folks are going to want to help you out. This could be a pretty exciting one!
TAURUS Apr 20 – May 20
Today is a good day to check in with your network. You might want to send a few test signals out to see if there are any missing links, faulty relays, broken wires or downed poles. But make sure everybody knows there’s no real emergency -- after all, don’t forget what happened to the boy who cried wolf. No, what you want to do is gently explore the state of things. And if you find that your networks aren’t working so well, get to work fixing the problem.
GEMINI May 21 – June 20
You might have to contend with a pesky personal limitation. Are you afraid of loneliness? Are you petrified by the dark? Are you anxious when the new cappuccino machine makes funny sounds like it’s going to break? Whatever it is, it’s something you can work on. Not only can you, but you should. Take some time and reflective space and maybe even read a book or two. Try to see if there are any clues you can find for making some change.
CANCER June 21 – July 22
There are different kinds of security. There’s financial security, there’s emotional security and then there are childproof caps. There are seatbelts and there’s health insurance. There’s a strong pair of arms and there’s a strong heart. There are life vests and life preservers. There are also a whole lot of uncertainties, and not all of them have solutions. Look at where you’re secure and where you can’t be certain, and try to do your best to find some balance.
LEO July 23 – Aug 22
You and your heart are going to sit down for a little heart-to-heart. Well, okay, maybe it’s more accurate to call it a mind-to-heart. Or mind-and-bodyto-heart. Whatever. You’re going to ask your heart a few hard questions and then, if your heart wants to ask you some hard questions, it gets to. Then you have to answer (fair is fair!), and, ideally, by the end of the conversation, you two will come to a whole new understanding.
VIRGO Aug 23 – Sept 22
You’re one tough cookie. It doesn’t matter if you feel more like oatmeal or chewy chocolate, more butter or more powdered sugar-covered, more pecan or more caramel. Nutty or not, you bend, not break. You can take the heat. You can adapt yourself to new surroundings. You don’t shy away from problems, and you’re always willing to sit down over a cup of coffee and talk about it. Remember that today.
LIBRA Sept 23 – Oct 22
You are no shrinking violet. No, not you. On the contrary, you’re more like a Venus flytrap -- you know what you want, and when it buzzes over your way, you snap it up! Then you do what you will with it. These days you are snapping up what you want all over the place. There’s just about nothing that’s going to fly out of your grasp. So be sure to make the most of your increased boldness!
SCORPIO Oct 23 – Nov 21
Mark your territory. After all, it’s your territory and nobody else’s. The clearer you can be about your boundaries, the easier it will be for other people to respect them. And if they don’t, you need to defend your space. Sure, if there’s a valid border dispute, engage in discussion. But don’t give up what’s yours just because it’s easier -- your personal space is too valuable for that!
SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
You understand the value of exercise. It’s not just for your body, but for your body, mind, and spirit that you jog, box, walk, do martial arts, take yoga or do whatever it is that you do. Today is a particularly good day to follow through on your drive to get in touch with each and every little tiny muscle in your entire body (if at all possible). You’ll feel terrific, both during and afterward.
CAPRICORN Dec 22 – Jan 19
You’ll be most successful with an outgoing, even aggressive approach to things. You know what you want, so go get it. Politely but firmly ask anybody standing in your way to step aside. If they don’t comply, then tell them to. With that determined look in your eye, they’re bound to do what you say. Then pick up whatever you want and take it where you want to go. You’ll feel mighty powerful by the time this is all over.
