Gemini The Twins: (May 20-June 21)
Mercury travels through your sign between June 13 and July 16. During this period there likely will be greater emphasis on communications, errands and other short distance travels. Your mind will be quick and your attitude persuasive. You are loaded with ideas. Write them down to remember later.
For All Signs: Mars, ancient god of war, is highlighted in the astrological sky for the next two weeks. It is likely that all of us will feel his presence within ourselves or in interactions with others. The planet Mars represents the warrior within each of us and has both a higher and lower nature. At best this energy is used for healthy self-assertion, personal boundary setting and self-discipline. The warrior side is well used when in the service of a higher good. The lower nature of Mars can represent irritability, unhealthy aggression, arrogance and long held resentment. We can choose how to use them. The real war is fought within the self.
Aries: Take every precaution not to abuse your body during this period. Drugs or alcohol could have peculiar side effects. If you are affected emotionally, try not to worry about it. Your body/feelings will right themselves after the 15th.
Taurus: Venus entered your sign on June 6 and will be traveling "with you" through July 4. Her presence gives you an air of poise, and people will simply like how you look. Often when Venus is prominent we become more interested in art forms and want to make things in the environment more attractive.
Cancer: You are in a reasonably good place with yourself at this time. You have no conflict between your feelings and your thoughts about those feelings. This is a time for reflection on important subjects. You can make good decisions now.
Leo: This week is about finding healing on either the physical or emotional levels. If a friendship or a more significant relationship needs mending, now is the time to do so. The willingness to open your heart and mind to give and to receive is yours at this time.
Virgo: Your attention turns toward your life direction at this time. You may be researching needed information or talking with others about where you are headed. Your work is noticeable and may bring a job improvement later in the week.
Libra: Venus, your ruling planet, entered the 8th sector and will remain there until July 4. This suggests favorable influences and opportunities concerning gifts or other financial resources that come through other people. It includes investments, debts owed to you and insurance payoffs.
Scorpio: It is possible you will be feeling hurt and disappointed over a situation with a loved one. People just don't always respond to us as we wish. Sometimes they are distracted by life situations of their own. If a beloved seems oblivious, try not to take it personally.
Sagittarius: You have one or more confrontations with others at this time. It seems your optimism and joviality may be irritating to those with darker points of view. Use caution when making promises.
Capricorn: You do not have major aspects at this time. However, the challenge is "in the details." You may have to search files or finish odds and ends on various records. It is an outside possibility that you could acquire some type of respiratory issue, such as a cold.
Aquarius: Plan to work and play alone early in the week. You likely will be feeling restless and generally tense. Your patience could be short and you might say things you'll wish you hadn't. Following the weekend, your chemistry shifts into peaceful mode.
Pisces: This is a powerful time to consider your spiritual purposes. It is all too easy for the Maya, the things of the world, to overwhelm every waking minute, leaving no time for the higher goals. If you notice fatigue, disappointment or depression at this time, stop.
