Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and higher purpose, will enter the zodiac sign of Gemini on June 11. It will be in Gemini for a year. Things always get better when Jupiter beams its rays in your direction, so this will be welcome news for Geminis, as well as for Virgos, Libras and Aquarians. The plus side to Jupiter in an air sign is that good things come to you through other people. You don’t have to run off in pursuit of what you want as much as to be ready to open the door to welcome the influx of new faces and friendships that will be pouring into your life. Jupiter is wonderful for broadening your horizons and enriching your outlook on life. Jupiter is also known for making things bigger. Named after the Greek god of storms, Jupiter is famous for expanding waistlines and thunder thighs.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Do the best job you can at fielding the demands, requests and panic calls that will come flying at you on Monday. This is the downside to being born under the Wonder Woman sign of the zodiac. Everyone expects you to drop what you’re doing and to fly to their rescue. Do what you can, but don’t drive yourself crazy. You’re only human after all. You could experience a major case of cold feet on Tuesday and Wednesday when you see the price tag for an enterprise or venture you’ve been planning. You knew you would have to cough up a chunk of change, but you weren’t expecting it to be this big. Rest assured that you are on the right track and that this will wind up paying enormous dividends. Expect good news regarding health and wealth on Friday and Saturday. This is when efforts you made to turn around a certain situation will finally pay off. In fact, you could wind up doing better than you had hoped. Sunday is Father’s Day and Aries is one of the three astrological signs of the father. Take Dad to a game, toss around the ball or break out the brewskies and share some ‘za. You and Dad need some quality guy time – even if you do wear heels.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
You will feel a distinct shift in energies on Monday. This is when you go from sketching out financial plans in your head to acting on them. Sooner is better than later when Jupiter is traveling through the sign of twins. There are opportunities galore, but they won’t stick around forever. You could be put in touch with a friend of a friend who can open doors for you, you might get the insider’s price on a prized object or interest rates could be at an all time low. You will need to act fast before someone else swoops in and makes off with your golden opportunity. On Wednesday, you will be faced with that decision that you keep putting off. You know – the one about ending things once and for all? Chances are you will put it off again – and that’s OK – as long as you know that it’s already a fait accompli. The only question is when you will act, not if. Thursday through Saturday are wonderful days for you. This is when you will be feeling very empowered and confident. Let yourself soak up this sensation because you will need to remember what this peace and calm felt like over the next two weeks when the stars start putting you through your paces.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and higher purpose, enters Gemini on Monday. Jupiter is the planet of BIG and you will see things grow in leaps and bounds over the next year. A little money becomes a lot, one relationship becomes four and the granting of a single wish or dream will be multiplied tenfold. But you have to be careful of what you wish for with Jupiter because it will deliver more than you expect and, like with the Sorcerer’s apprentice who wanted help with carrying a heavy bucket of water, you could find yourself deluged by too much of a good thing. Thankfully, you were born under a very shrewd and strategic zodiac sign. You don’t get carried away easily and, even if you do, you will always land on your feet. Meanwhile, you would be well advised to leave a certain negotiation alone on Thursday or Friday. The terms may not be to your satisfaction, but they’re still pretty good considering your circumstances. What you have in place can be built upon in the future. However, if you push for what you want now then you will get it, but it will be for a substantially lower return than what you could have received had you allowed for the terms to remain open and flexible.
CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
You may be wondering what you did in a past life to deserve all the aggravation you’ll be getting this week. Did you make a crack about the Buddha’s weight when you thought he wasn’t listening? You won’t be happy to learn that one trivial disagreement is all it takes for a friendship to come undone before your eyes on Monday and Tuesday. And what makes matters worse is that trying to explain yourself only intensifies the distrust and suspicion. The best solution for digging yourself deeper into a hole is to stop digging. It’s a bit Zen, but you’ll find that it works by Thursday. The other thing that you will want to watch out for is this inability of yours to let go of a grudge or a perceived slight. You can rationalize it, you can visualize it, but that dark thought just won’t come out. This is pretty typical of a Mercury/Pluto opposition and the best way to cope is to find something else to do until the influence passes. Doing something physical – like going to the gym, tackling chores or even sorting your socks drawer – should alleviate that endless loop of conversation snippets that are playing (and replaying) in your head. The added bonus is this: Just think of how fit and clean and organized your life will be by the weekend.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
You can take a lot of punishment, but even you have your limits as someone who has criticized you one too many times learns to his chagrin on Monday. It won’t be a pretty moment, but so what? He had it coming. It’s time to let yourself unleash the emotions and anxieties you’ve kept bottled up for weeks because there’s nothing like a really good meltdown for clearing the psyche and re-establishing mental equilibrium. In fact, friends have been wondering what took you so long. The Sun/Saturn trine on Thursday will bring good news regarding work. If you’ve been casting about for what the next step should be in your career or wearing down your heels pounding the pavement going on job interviews, then you will find that you are in luck. If you’re not promoted or hired by Thursday, then you will be by June 25. Meanwhile, you will finally get a handle on a very private matter this weekend. It looks like some family skeletons came out to play around the Super Moon in Scorpio on May 6. From all appearances, they’ve had their fun rattling your cage and are ready to settle back down into the closet again. You can look forward to rest-filled nights starting next week.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
You can dish it out, but can you take it? This will be the question on Monday and Tuesday when loved ones and close friends criticize you for having been remiss and self-absorbed. Don’t bother making excuses because the truth is they’re right. What else would one expect from a Virgo who has had Mars – the planet of “that’s what I want and I want it NOW” – going back and forth in her zodiac sign since November? In any case, Mars has done its job of getting you out of that rut you were stuck in and back on track to living the life you want to live. And since your recent transition from single to coupled, from wife to mother or from underling to boss has ruffled a few feathers and put a number of noses out of joint, it wouldn’t be the worse idea for you to make the rounds on Thursday and to reassure the people whom you live with and work for that you are still the same person. It’s called going on the charm offensive and you’ll find that it works wonders. Meanwhile, don’t assume that life will be returning to normal. Jupiter’s arcing over your solar mid-heaven means that there will be a new normal, so don’t ink plans that are better left penciled in.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
You’ve been waiting to receive a calling card from your higher purpose and this week you get it. It won’t come in the form of a burning bush or a bolt out of the blue, but you’ll feel its effects by Thursday. You may be disappointed to learn that you won’t be pulling up stakes and going off in search of new horizons after all, but that’s because Jupiter in Gemini tends to stick close to home. The best way to connect to yourself is by recognizing the sublime in the every day. Simple exchanges with your friends and neighbors will do more to lift your consciousness and open your heart than years spent navel-gazing in the Himalayas ever would. It’s easy to be exotic where nobody knows your name, much harder to inhabit the here-and-now with the full breadth of your being. But don’t worry. You can do it. Meanwhile, things in a relationship are nearing the point of no return. But this isn’t about an ending; it’s about making a commitment or refreshing the current one. You’ve probably come to realize that there’s no “there” there and that you will have to accept your partner for who he is or move on. If you haven’t moved on by now, then it’s unlikely that you will. But you also want to stay for the right reasons. Spend the next four months reflecting on what you want and you may discover it smiling back at you.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
You need to watch it with the projected scenarios or you could wind up creating a hell of your own making on Monday or Tuesday. It’s human nature to paint mental pictures of what we think is going on, especially when we haven’t heard back from someone or when we’re faced with a situation where’s there’s so much at stake. Usually, you’re pretty good at filling in the blanks, but the opposition between Mercury — the planet of the mind – and Pluto — the planet of hidden agendas – could lead you to read between the lines too much. The worst part is that you could become so invested in your suspicions that you will refuse to believe the truth even when you hear it. It would be a good idea to check in with a trusted friend on Wednesday to learn what she has to say. This person should be able to straighten you out. Meanwhile, Thursday through Saturday are the perfect days to review accounts and to take stock of your current situation. Chances are, you’re not taking full advantage of interest rates or making the most of certain investments. Life’s too short for you to be sitting on your assets. A meeting with a financial consultant can help you to maximize your savings. The pressing need for this will become apparent on June 18.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Do you really want to hold someone to a promise that they don’t want to keep? For most people, the answer would be yes, but you were born under the most freedom loving sign of the zodiac. You really don’t want to have to deal with anyone who doesn’t truly want to deal with you. Yes, it will be a huge headache to release this person from a contract, pledge or agreement, but do it because you will be happier for it in the long run. Meanwhile, your ruling planet, Jupiter, begins its yearlong stay in that part of your solar chart that pertains to relationships. If you’re single, then you won’t be by October. You should be dating pretty seriously. If you’re already paired up, then you and your other half will be taking the next step forward in your relationship in the fall. However, the most sensational developments are reserved for those Sagittarians born between November 23 and November 28. Your relationship picture will change so dramatically in the next six months that you will have a hard time reconciling where you are now with where you will wind up then. It will be a wild ride and, like with any crazy spin on the love rollercoaster, you’ll emerge breathless, excited and ready to go again.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
You won’t be getting that big break you’re hoping for, but, then again, you don’t need it. Nothing beats doing what you love for a living and right now you are traveling a path that leads in that very direction. Every step you take will bring greater fulfillment and joy, as well as recognition and esteem. It will not bring you money right now and there’s a reason for that. Capricorns often choose money over love for what they do and Jupiter traveling through that part of your solar horoscope that relates to work is here to rectify that situation. Money without meaning has no value, which is why people who fixate on getting to the next income bracket burn through it so quickly. They make more only to spend more. But when you connect to your true purpose in work then that brings a rare kind of sustenance and sustainability. This won’t make sense right away, but it will a year from now. Meanwhile, a very important piece to a puzzling business relationship will slip into place on June 13. You will sigh with relief that things are finally finalized. What you don’t know is that this is the start of one of the most remarkable and transformative collaborations that you could ever hope to have. It will change the way that you look at things forever.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
You are currently riding a wave of success and you should let yourself hang ten. Aquarians are the least self-centered sign in the zodiac because you are always thinking in terms of the grand scheme of things and what will serve the greater good. Give it a rest already. A little ego gratification won’t kill you – nor will treating yourself to an impromptu shopping spree. It’s true that Aquarians tend to be high-end buyers, but that’s what comes from being born under Saturn in a day sign. You have high standards, expensive tastes and you like to show them off. Have fun and remember that this is a well-deserved reward for working as hard as you do. Meanwhile, you will be setting your sights on an even higher goal by week’s end. You’re driven more by tests than accolades and raising the bar is your way of keeping yourself lean, mean and innovative. However, you can expect to meet with resistance from friends and colleagues. They will tell you that you shouldn’t push your luck. But it’s not luck that you’re pushing – it’s yourself. You will always be inspired by your vision of the way that things could be and this will always take you down the roads that are less traveled, but these are also the roads that will make all the difference.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
You had your eyes set on one prize so you won’t be prepared for the brighter and shinier one that emerges on Monday. Do you drop the first to pursue the second? Or do you try to go for both? When you have Jupiter – the planet of good fortune — entering Gemini — a sign that believes in having two of everything — then you will naturally want to have your cake and eat it, too. In fact, you may be sizing up the entire dessert cart. Now Jupiter has a bit of a mixed reputation in Astrology. The planet of good fortune has also been known to lead people astray by making them feel that they can have it all. And this is when people become reckless and foolhardy. The simple truth about Jupiter is you really can have it all, but you have to be smart about it. If you go rushing after a golden opportunity with stars in your eyes, then, yes, you will be in for a rude awakening. However, if you can attune yourself to developments and let them unfold on their own without getting impatient and grabby, then you will get what you want – and then some. You are entering into possibly the richest and most fulfilling year of your life. Treat it with the value and honor that it deserves and you will be rewarded tenfold.
