AstroDreams: Astrology forecast for June 17-30


The week begins with a thought-provoking New Moon in Gemini on the 17th, which teams up with Mercury and the Sun to create an avalanche of communications. Mercury enters the more emotional sign of Cancer two days later, along with the Sun on the 20th, adding an empathetic element to exchanges. Communications get a burst of ingenuity when Mercury dances with Uranus around the 22nd. Then talk turns serious when Saturn enters the mix on the 26th, a superb time to review contracts. Mars turns up the heat in romance when the planet of passion enters Leo on the 23rd. And love gets a fresh perspective when Venus turns direct on the 29th.
