The sun is shining down on this beautiful Gemini season where we are being pulled quickly in a myriad of directions. Where life may feel overwhelming and exploring every angle of a situation may be a lot of work, it is necessary for growth and change to occur within us and outside of us all. Mercury, planet of communication, will shift from stable Taurus to analytical Gemini on June 6, on the same day Venus will move from powerful Aries and into grounded Taurus. Venus is at home in Taurus, a sign of beauty and all things connected to earth. And Mercury is in the sign it knows best in Gemini, thus initiating a sort of balance in our lives. Where there is order coming out of the chaos, with so many directions for us to go in now that a school year is coming to a close, the shining sun sheds light on what it is we know we want. Our true desires have room to develop and breathe.
Aries 3/21 – 4/19
It may seem scary to dive in deep to your desires, but you know that you feel unsatisfied with where you’re currently at. There’s no need to be afraid of what’s really going on in your head, you’ve always known what you truly want and now is the time to uncover it, let your desires roam and be free in the world.
Taurus 4/20 – 5/20
For a sign that is known to be quite stubborn, you are actually usually fairly passive. Conflict just doesn’t seem worth it unless it’s something you truly feel passionate about. Harness that passion. It is necessary now to stake a claim, make a statement, and let your stance be known.
Gemini 5/21 – 6/20
This is your season Gemini, and while your sign is vast in how many angles you can approach your life, right now you may be feeling quite steady. The sun is shining down on you and it’s up to you to harness that positivity and use it to better yourself, to focus in on where you’re at and where you want to be.
Cancer 6/21 – 7/22
Being a water sign, you are very self-aware of your emotions and desires. You know exactly what you want and you’re not afraid to explore those depths of your mind. However just because you feel self-actualized doesn’t mean that delays and external struggles aren’t a thing. Learn to roll with the punches, Cancer. Setbacks are a part of the journey too.
Leo 7/23 – 8/22
Whoa, slow down there Leo! While you keep planning for each day as it comes, what are you doing for the bigger picture overall? It may be time to sit with yourself and ask the bigger questions, like what do you really want for yourself right now? Take a trip into nature and take it easy. Work towards a bigger goal rather than focusing in on plans for tonight.
Virgo 8/23 – 9/22
You’ve been mistreated, badly. You’ve felt the wrath of judgement wrap around you and now it’s time to break free. You’re not alone, Virgo. For someone who likes to skirt around these deeper emotions, it doesn’t mean you don’t feel them. Don’t be scared to be vulnerable and you’ll see that people believe you, people do care.
Libra 9/23 – 10/22
Sometimes it is easier to dream and think wishfully on our desires than to actually put pen to paper and do the work to make it reality. The key here is doing the work. You may find yourself feeling sleepy, and that’s ok. But sooner or later you must wake up and decide what to put your energy into.
Scorpio 10/23 – 11/21
Something wicked this way comes, Scorpio and it’s not what you think. For a sign that’s all about change, you’re feeling resistant. There’s something deeper in you that you may have been rejecting or keeping secret and now is the time to embrace it. It may change things, but not in the big terrifying way that you assume. It may set you on a better course.
Sagittarius 11/22 – 12/21
You’ve taken quite a beating recently, Sagittarius, and while you’re known as the optimist of the zodiac you may find yourself proceeding with extreme caution. Like a hissing cat, you’re not lashing out at others out of anger, but out of self-protection. Tend to your wounds and stay safe out there. While you’ve experienced a lot, you’re still fighting and that shows deep strength.
Capricorn12/22 – 1/19
You may find yourself hesitant to proceed with the way your life is as of now. You can see the path before you and it looks limited, it looks the same as it always has. You have a choice now, Capricorn. You always have. You can choose to go along, business as usual, or you can change some aspect of your life to give it new meaning.
Aquarius 1/20 – 2/18
Contentment surrounds you during this time, but just like how a sweet 30 minute power nap can turn into a 3 hr snooze, we must be careful about indulging too much. While you deserve to treat yourself, don’t go so far that you end up filled with regret. All things in moderation, Aquarius. You can have your bliss without getting swept away too far out of reality.
Pisces 2/19 – 3/20
You’re working hard Pisces! You should be proud of the tremendous effort you’re putting into all your projects, however you have a tendency to get isolated. You might believe no one understands you so it’s easier to just do things alone. Your powers of intuition are necessary Pisces, and you’ll find now that working on a team will take your work to another level.
