Love is sublime (but may suffer from pedestal-itis) during Neptune’s rendezvous with Venus on the 14th-15th. Travel and communications are challenged by a sun-Pluto opposition on the 16th, so double-check your plans. Next, an energy speed bump consolidates (stymies?) plans when Saturn and Jupiter collide with Mars on the 17th-19th. This cosmic reality check intensifies when Jupiter squares off with Saturn from mid-June through early July, a time for reexamining your direction. Fortunately, the summer solstice on the 21st and new moon in Cancer on the 25th bring in a new cycle of energy and optimism. As for romance, communications get creative when Venus enters Gemini on the 23rd and Mercury enters Leo on the 28th.
