Astrology forecast for June 2-15



By Cortney Litwin/Staff Writer

It’s planetary pandemonium for the next two weeks-especially for the signs Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo and Pisces-when an explosive mix of cosmic energies involving the sun (ego), Mars (anger), Mercury (communications and travel), Uranus (chaos) and Pluto (destruction/rebirth) mess with our comfort zones. Be on the alert for sudden travel snafus, mechanical and technological breakdowns, tiffs that can skyrocket into arguments and partners who (temporarily) slide off the rails from control, jealousy or freedom issues. On a positive note, Neptune’s compassionate, soothing influence accompanies the new moon in Gemini on the 6th. Some of this upheaval turns inward (read lunacy or enlightenment) when Uranus turns retrograde June 14-Nov. 15.

If you know your rising sign from your time of birth, read that also.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’ll need to keep a check on your temper if normally mundane interactions spiral out of control over the next two weeks. The new moon should improve communications, while Mars entering Aries on the 11th energizes your activities.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

The new moon energizes moneymaking opportunities, but some of your financial dealings now can have alarming consequences, so use caution. Venus entering Cancer on the 3rd sweetens romantic trysts and encourages entertaining at home.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

You’re on a wild ride over the next two weeks, which can catapult you out of any stagnant places in your life. Make necessary changes, but try to avoid going to extremes. A new cycle in your personal life begins with the new moon.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Romance and communications shine when Venus transits into Cancer on the 3rd, followed by brainy Mercury on the 11th. Promote yourself after the 16th. The new moon highlights spiritual activities and healing the past.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Clear communications, along with the new moon, help harmonize a challenging situation with a friend or group. Your ego may take a hit around the 13th, which will prompt you to reevaluate your outer image and inner needs.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Work irritations, which may involve your significant other, cause you to rethink your goals. You may also be tug-of-warring between time spent with family versus career. Look for career opportunities during the new moon.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Abrupt shifts in travel plans will test your aptitude for spontaneity. On another front, planetary energies, including the new moon, are working overtime to awaken you to new choices and possibilities in your life.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

A lineup of cosmic energies encourages the healing of old wounds and ridding yourself of attitudes, material stuff and people that are blocking your creativity. The new moon highlights intimacy as well as financial reorganization.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Clashes that require compromise may arise with your significant other or a business partner. The new moon also highlights partnership activities. Your Jupiter ruler turning direct on the 5th should accelerate your plans.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Getting healthy is encouraged by multiple cosmic energies, including the new moon. Donating your time to help others is also emphasized. Venus moving into your partnership area on the 3rd makes for pleasurable interactions.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Interactions with your children or a romantic relationship can prove unpredictable, but new opportunities to improve your relationships accompany the new moon. Concentrate on your creativity, which is especially strong now.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Family interactions may be troublesome now, but are improved by a fresh cycle of positive energy during the new moon. Romance gets a boost after the 3rd. And pay attention to your intuition, which is especially keen around the 7th-8th.
